Little Girl Lost

CovenantHouse

Little girl riding a bike in the middle of the night
From boredom to stress she moves out of fright
You can’t detect it on her face she hides all of that
he heard the sound a block away click-clack
Her mothers up the way at the crack house spot
Only diggin deeper the blunts to slow her thoughts
Unconscience of her surroundings her future even bleeker
Daddy never raised her to be a knowledge seeker
Never stopping time to free up her mind
Wool over her eyes never realize she been walking blind

Remember When?

Love to Easy Mo Bee
as  producer on Biggie’s album

easy biggie
Ready to Die is the debut album of American rapper The Notorious B.I.G., released September 13, 1994 on Sean “Puffy” Combs’ Bad Boy Records. It serves as the first release on the record label. Recording sessions for the album took place from 1993 to 1994 at The Hit Factory and D&D Studios in New York City. The partly autobiographical album tells the story of The Notorious B.I.G.’s experiences as a young criminal, referring to himself as “the black Frank White”. Ready to Die is his only studio album released during his lifetime; B.I.G. was murdered days prior to the release of his second album Life After Death (1997).

Ready to Die gained strong reviews on release and became a commercial success, reaching quadruple platinum sales. It was significant for revitalizing the East Coast hip hop scene, amid West Coast hip hop’s commercial dominance. The album’s second single, “Big Poppa”, was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rap Solo Performance at the 1996 Grammy Awards. Ready to Die has been regarded by several music critics as one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time. In 2003, the album was ranked number 133 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time, making it the third highest hip hop album on the list. In 2006, Time included it on its list of the 100 greatest albums of all time.

The production on the album was mainly handled by Easy Mo Bee and The Hitmen, and it was generally well-received by critics. Rolling Stone described the beats as “heavy bottomed and slick,” enhancing the lyrics but not standing in their own right. The production is mainly sample-based with the samples varying from the percussion of funk tracks to the vocals of hip hop songs. Steve Huey presented some criticism over the beats, stating that the “deliberate beats do get a little samey, but it hardly matters: this is Biggie’s show” Cheo H. Coker depicted the beats as “heavy bottomed and slick, but B.I.G.’s rhymes are the showstoppers. The tracks only enhance them, whether it’s the live bass driving a menacing undercurrent or [the] use of bluesy guitar and wah-wah feedback” and that the production is used to “push the rapper to new heights.”

Casualties of War

shark
It’s all hard work and no play
 More than combat, it’s far beyond that
 Cause I got a kill or be killed kind of attack
 Area’s mapped out, there’ll be no, Stratego
 Me and my platoon make a boom wherever we go
 But what are we here for?
Who’s on the other side of the wall?
 Somebody give the President a call
 But I hear warfare scream through the air
 Back to the battlegrounds, it’s war they declare
 A Desert Storm: let’s see who reigns supreme
Something like Monopoly: a government scheme
Go to the Army, be all you can b Another dead soldier?
 Hell no, not me So I start letting off ammunition in every direction
 Allah is my only protection But wait a minute,
Saddam Hussein prays the same and this is
Asia, from where I came I’m on the wrong side, so change the target
Shooting at the general; and where’s the sergeant?
Blame it on John Hardy Hawkins for bringing me to America
Now it’s mass hysteria I get a rush when
I see blood, dead bodies on the floor
CASUALTIES OF WAR!

I MISS YOU

glass smash

I miss your smile, I miss your touch; I miss the voice I loved so much.
And when Im sleepless in the night, I miss the arms that held me tight.
It seems like only yesterday, so quietly you slipped away.
You were the rock I leaned upon, Ive had to be strong now you’ve gone.
No tomorrows for us to share, still I sense you everywhere.
The love we had, even death cannot sever; deep in my heart it lives forever.
Each night I gaze at the starlit sky, reliving the years of you and I.

afterwards…

basquitRadiant Child

We have dreams, desires
We put forth effort and energy
But do we ever know what impact we have
Does a person really have to die to be honored or respected
for who he or she is?
Some of us swim upstream some swim with the flow
but those who are courageous enough to be
themselves, be different or dare to pursue their
DREAMS
are the real
KINGS & QUEENS
those who stand for what they believe, create and give back to
SOCIETY
but in the process we doubt, we give up, we stop swimming
only to realize we had it all along
NO ONE
or rarely anyone wants to praise the ones that are different
because they are envious
jealousy because they didn’t dare reach for the
STAR
or do what makes them truly
HAPPY

Piece of Love…

tropical
Love is the only experience that replaces fear.
Peace is the result.
Love is the experience of taking in the breath of life,
without fear.
Peace is the result.
When you know that you handle all things in love,
Peace is the result.
When you love yourself through every experience,
without any fear about where you are going,
Peace is the result.
Peace is the helpmate of love.
When you commit yourself to loving all and
doing all in love,
Peace takes care of everything else.

Slight Imperfections

missyblegd
You might not see it…
But I do.
I earned it.
Damn near killed myself.
Didn’t seem much at the time.
Thought it would have gone away by now.
But years later.
I see it.
Do you?
Or is it just me?
We sometimes fuss over imperfections.
But isn’t it those things that gives us character?
It’s about 2 inches.
And 20 years later it still looks at me.
I earned it.
Damn near killed myself.
Do you see it?
Or is it just me… ?

Happy CoCo Day

coco is

is one tough lady who has survived decades in a world
not so friendly but it goes to show if a woman is determined, consistent than
NOTHING CAN STOP HER!

Coco Chanel held the title CHIEF DESIGNER until the day she passed
in 1971 but her road wasn’t always an easy stroll.
When she returned to the fashion world the people of Paris snubbed her due to her ties
as a spy with the Nazi’s (code name was Westminster)
but the British and Americans welcomed her and are still her most loyal customers.
She lived at the Hotel Ritz for almost 30 years… and on her last day
she had took a long drive and went to bed early not feeling well.
But whats admirable about Ms. Coco is she held the same schedule / routine
until she passed at 87 yrs old.

I was going through my old hard drive and came across this cluster of photos from my friend Sha’s
bike club from Brooklyn. Anyone that knows me knows I love motorcycles in all shapes and sizes… from street to hog. It’s a club, a team, a family and their weapons are in the shape of two wheels, a roaring engine and a unique life. Some are dangerous, some are community oriented, some for show, some for real but for whatever reason
they chose the life while some are born into it.
