Tunji Ige sings “For Us”

Claiming you want change, Give you glam and give you fame. Just a slave with your own chain. Now you made in the game singing, “No Love For Us.”

for-us for-us-2

Tunji Ige’s The Love Project is above all a coming-of-age story, concentrating on Tunji’s life from ages 16 to 19. It’s a meditation on him as a young, black teenager dealing with relationships, rebellion, and the pressure to be cool. “For Us” is the opening song. Tunji says, “‘For Us’ I feel is a critique on the social climate as well as what someone like me has to battle through, being myself, especially with where I’m at. I’m an up-and-coming artist but still a young black kid who could be a victim to the system. ‘For Us’ is the conscience to balance this transition: Do you let it get to your head or do you keep pushing?”

Love…

hearbrokeHow do you treat your self?
How do you share with others?
How do you show others how you fee?
How do you listen to a friend?
How do you make someone else feel good?
What does it take for you to love?
Do you love yourself?
Really love yourself?

Make sure you take care of yourself
Make sure you take care of your loved ones…
Make sure you take care of the human race…
whether you know them or not!

Don’ suffer and don’t let others suffer.
BE KIND

A little more LOVE

candlelit

Don’t be afraid to take the initiative.
Don’t be afraid to put your heart on the table.
Don’t be afraid to show just how much you love someone.
Not just for your lover but for you mom, dad, mentor, friend…
A dinner or lunch made with love along with words of encouragement.
LOVE
comes in many ways and the world needs a little bit
MORE
so just extend a hand, share your pain, give more hugs
and remember to smile. A smile could be a mood changer.
A gesture could save someones day even a life… so many people
feel they are alone with no options.
Let them know
they are not
alone but we are all in this
TOGETHER!

This is not an act…

warrior women

Everyday is a new day
Each day a war is at bay

And they ask are you okay?

Somedays I feel

Somedays dont seem real

As I carry this sword of steel

Walking through the battlefield

Tryin to emotionally rebuild

What has been destroyed

My heart torn apart

Another fight is about to start

As I use the last piece of my heart

Swinging my sword at them

One goes down, my friend

This battle I want to end

A message of hope I send

To my friend who had my back

Now gone pain I retract

This is not an act

My heart I just want it back.

Today being my bornday… I wanted to share something personal with you.

Who Shot Jay Z?

So Hov aka Jay Z aka Jay Hova released his “demo” tape for us with an image that has history. Of course, they aren’t talking about that but I WILL. Why? Because all artist/photographers should get their credit. It’s like a producer in music. Even though these days we don’t read cd insert credits like we use too and most the time producers don’t get their credits unless they know the business. BUT needless to say… this one is worth talking about. The same guy that took HOV’s demo photo is the same guy that was Biggie’s favorite photographer and was invited when most weren’t.

Same guy that has more than one pic of Jay Z.

And has images of Wayne when he was “little” and almost tat-less (making up words is cool).

And this IS NOT the first time this image has made it across the world. It is currently being shown in Paris, France at the Maison Folie Moulins as well as in Jersey City, NJ.

This photographer has been behind some of Hiphop’s dopest covers and in magazines from Time to Vibe.

This notorious photographer is known to many as Brother Ernie but professionally it’s Ernie Paniccioli. Author of “Who Shot Ya?”, subject of “The Otherside of Hiphop” and last year inducted into the Hiphop Hall of Fame as well as most recently honored at Jersey City City Hall. Who is still humble, wise an undeniable force in Hiphop. But as we know most of today’s Hiphop doesn’t honor the legends like they should. Maybe it’s pride. Maybe they want to be the cool one and not give any shine. I mean why wouldn’t you want to embrace the dude that took pics of you before you were “on top”? Just for story or nostalgia purposes at least. I mean his site is dope and does cover a lot of ill content with culture. Maybe Hov doesn’t feel or think that way but to me it makes the story more meaningful. What do you think?

Excuses us, ladies and gentlemen, one, two

You need to pick your afro, daddy
Because it’s flat on one side
You need to pick your afro, daddy
Because it’s flat on one side, what you waitin’ on
Well, if you don’t pick your afro
You’re gonna have one side high

Well, you said you was gonna take me to see Wu-Tang, baby
So I braided my hair, well, yes, you did
You said you was gonna take me to see Wu-Tang, baby
So I braided my hair, yes, I did, corn roll and everything, baby
Well, you changed your mind and said we weren’t goin’
But my momma saw you there, yes, she did

Check this out, one time

Well, I been blowin’ up your pager, daddy
But you never call me back
Well, I be puttin’ in 911, baby
But you never call me back, no, no
See, you don’t know how to use that pager, daddy
I’m gonna take that hoe back, yes, I will, you know I’ll do it

Jersey City honors Legendary Photographer Ernie Paniccioli

Jan-13-Poster

 

For over 30 years Ernie Paniccioli, who many call Brother Ernie, has captured the raw essence of graffiti and hiphop culture in New York and New Jersey. On Tuesday, Jan 13th we will honor him with a ceremony at Jersey City’s City Hall building. The show will include never seen before prints, personal artwork of Brother Ernies and have the chance to get your prints or books signed. He is a lovingly grumpy and totally great storyteller kind of guy who might look intimidating but is  a cuddly bear who emanates love and respect.

After the  show there will also be a Networking Mixer one block away starting at 9pm so join us – Bistro Cafe’! Meet with some of Jersey’s finest and continued conversations with hiphop legends. Brought to you by SocietyNeedsCulture.com Sounds by DJ Bizznice.
