“Long Live Hip-Hop”
PRODUCED & WRITTEN BY
Hip Hop is Dead, Long live Hip Hop
We said that we loved the music and the culture, that we would live this way for the rest of our lives. We promoted the parties, carried the records, begged the DJ’s and we preformed for little or nothing. When I said I love HIP HOP. I meant it and this song is my salute to all of you that have nurtured the music and the culture. To all of you that never sold out.
Hip Hop Culture raised My Mentality
The culture and its music raised my mentality and gave me a sense of belonging. To this day my favorite mental exercises to this day are poetry and songwriting, a habit formed during my time as an active Hip Hop artist. In fact, I write as much as possible, but the issues I write about reflect my years and I think Carry more weight due to my life experience. Writing keeps me cognizant of who I am, mindful that we are living in a rapidly changing world. Writing keeps me hungry for knowledge and solutions to real problems.
A sense of purpose
Yes, Hip Hop culture gave me a sense of style and a sense of purpose. Because of rap music, I have been able to express my Hopes, frustrations and reconcile my pain. Hip Hop Culture has taken me far and wide. Through this beautiful Culture, I have been blessed to have met people from all walks of life. No matter the skin tone or economic circumstances Hip Hop allowed us to connect and share.

“LA-LA, The same song” produced & written by STRIVERS TV
After all, we have been through in this country. We the people of America deserve the opportunity to unify. I believe in the chance that AMERICA has been given. I belive for the dreamer in the dark. I am that dream personified. I am the dream of a slave and I intend to live out the American creed in every way. The two biggest obstacles and hindrances to the evolution of my community and my country have been racism and classicism. Its time for them both to end. If the power brokers of this country refuse to stop pitting the disenfranchised and those that have little or nothing against each other. This country will break into. The cabal of the rich and powerful coddles racist and the racist zealots amongst us. They think that this sustainable, but history proves, it’s not. LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS for all, is the only way. I wrote this song for the culture, the community, the disenfranchised and for those, hanging on to the Dream, for tomorrow’s sake. I’m singing about loss, but more so about striving to gain and about holding on to those gaines. “Freedom ain’t free” it never has been. Your voice and your work are necessary, especially now. It’s 2010 and we should have flying cars and no poverty. What happened? Greed happened as it always happens. The country is in debt, climate change is real and we have an obligation to act. We can not keep listening to the same sad song. The song that says we can’t overcome our problems. The song that divides us.

We DID IT !
Thank you all, everyone for their effort. We rebuked a threat to our sovereignty. Now we have to do the work of forming a more perfect union. Yeah, this maladjusted man is attempting to delay the inevitable will of the people. Yes, there is so much to cleanup to do up after he leaves office. We will: we must because the future is now. We are living in the age of understanding. The world is changing regardless of our status.
We have vast knowledge at our fingertips and Big Problems to solve. I am urging you all to do what you do. To the best of your ability. New ways of looking at problems are needed and the tried and must be observed, fortified and improved upon if possible.
Some say that it’s wishful thinking and others say nothing and do nothing at all. That is not a luxury any of us have any more. climate change will affect everyone. Maps will be redrawn and lives will change.
Food and water shortages will affect a billion people. We have homeless people in every US city. That should not even be possible in America. We have achieved the incredible but it won’t last if greed is our main motivation. We have to right this ship, so that everyone feels apart of this American societal effort.
45 HAS BEEN VOTED OUT
Now that 45 has been voted out. It’s this time and this space that gives us the opportunity to work for the better day. We won’t all get along but we can work towards a respect for one another. We can chose to judge character instead skin tone. We could be the light of the world again.
let’s work be American with me.. PEACE, LOVE & RECIPROCITY
will rap for food
Will rap for food part 1 As a Socio Political Hip Hop Artist I had to come to, the conclusion. That I was attempting to be apart of a cut throat industry. That ment that certain avenues would be inaccessible to me as a artist unless I was willing to compromise. By the time that my skill set and my aspirations were running parrell to each other. I was faced with a decision. The only decsion one could make in a profit driven competition. Change or die !
Do I change who I already know myself to be, for money? Or Do I persevere leaning on the faith that my creator would see me through? It’s funny looking back with perspective and knowledge at my younger self. My early exposure to some of the musical greats. The stages I have been on. The people I have met in my travels. the funniest part of all is that I never wanted Fame or should I say to be Famous. I wanted to be a Successful Hip Hop Artist. I wanted to nuture the culture and its music.
in the midst of it’s golden age
I came into the culture in the midst of it’s golden age. Everyone was unique. Everyone had a voice. We listened to the music with reverence for the artistry and the honesty. That is the covenant you made with the music. To be yourself and to show and prove in your demonstration. I don’t want you to get me wrong. It is a wonderful thing to see this music that was maglined as trivial and passing. Surpass all the limits of the naysayers. Do Billions of sales and change the world. I love all of that. But what I cared about most was the art.
Without the art all you have is a product. A cast of a mold made specifically to make money. Each with the same dimensions. Fitting into the same holes. No new horizions and fuled by the same stories of violence , sex or both. What’s left out of the equation are the people. The artist and the listener. That is the real shame. Now, There are exceptions to that rule even and I commend and celebrate the individuals that were able to break through the wall.
The ASPIRATIONS the new ideas
Like myself there are millions of souls that can attest to the power of music. Specifically Hip Hop in this case. The aspirations the new ideas and the vibrations changed my life. Even the most secular rap music was enpowering because of the individuality of the artist. As that changed I was forced to walk away. I must admit that I was tempted by expediancy and a empty stomach but the Creator had plans for my life. Each time something happened that made me walk away,thankfully.

I HAD A STROKE AND IT CHANGED MY LIFE-part 1
I REMEMBER BEING AT MY STATION EXPLAINING POLICY TO A BELLIGERENT PATIENT. I HAD NOT BEEN ABLE TO GET UP DUE TO THE DEMANDS OF THE PATIENT LOAD AND THE STAFFING NEEDS. WHEN I FINALLY DID GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO TO THE FACILITY. I WALKED NORMALLY AS I DO TOWARDS THE RESTROOM . AS I WALKED IN I BEGAN TO FILL OFF CENTER, AS IF SOME ONE HAD PUSHED ME. THEN I REMEMBER SEEING THE FEET OF THE COMPANIES LOGISTICS SPECIALIST. SO, I ASKED HIM FOR HELP. I REMEMBER ALL OF A SUDDEN FEELING PARTIALLY CONNECTED. FEELING THE USE OF MY HAND AND FEET LEAVING AS THE COMMANDS I GAVE THEM WENT UNHEARD. I WAS ALL AT ONCE SCARED BUT NOT IN A SELFISH WAY. I WAS ALL OF A SUDDEN OVERWHELMED AND CONCERNED WITH THE GRIEF OF ALL THE PEOPLE THAT LOVE ME IN THE WORLD. IF I WAS GOING TO DIE. I WANTED IT TO HAPPEN. I DID NOT WANT TO BE A BURDEN. I KNOW THAT I WAS BEING QUESTIONED BY THE NURSES AND DOCTORS AT MY PLACE OF EMPLOYMENT. I HEARD SOMEONE SAY THAT I WAS HAVING A STROKE.
I RECALL COGNITIVE QUESTIONS. LIKE RAISE YOUR LEFT HAND. THEN I WOKE UP IN THE HOSPITAL. I FELT THE PAIN OF THE I.V. IN ONE ARM BUT NOT THE OTHER. MY FRIEND VON STARTED YELLING MY NAME TO GET ME TO RESPOND TO THE DOCTORS QUESTIONS. APPARENTLY AT ONE POINT A DOCTOR ASKED ME TO CONSENT TO A CLOT BUSTING DRUG. ALL I KNOW IS THAT BY THE MERCY OF THE CREATOR; I SAID “YES”. THANKFULLY SO, BECAUSE IT DID WHAT IT WAS SUPPOSED TO DO AND DESTROYED THE CLOT IN MY BRAIN. ON A SCALE OF 1-20. I WAS DIAGNOSED AS AN 18. LITERALLY I HAD A MASSIVE STROKE. I BLACKED OUT AGAIN AND WHEN I WOKE UP I WAS IN A ROOM. FULLY HOOKED UP TO MONITORS. WITH NEEDLES IN BOTH ARMS. WHEN I LOOKED TO THE LEFT I COULD SEE MY MOTHER, MY SISTER . I HEARD THE VOICE OF FRIEND AND SMILED. I WAS IN HOSPITAL ROOM. A PLACE I DREADED MORE THAN ANY ONE KNEW. EVEN THOUGH I WORKED IN A MEDICAL INSTITUTION. I HAD A FULL BLOWN CASE OF WHITE COAT SYNDROME.
HERE I GO
AS MY PRIMARY COGNITION STARTED TO COME BACK, SO DID MY FEARS. MAYBE THEY COULD SEE IT IN MY FACE. I WAS REASSURED LOVINGLY BY A FRIEND OF MINE COURTNEY. SHE REMINDED ME THAT I WAS STILL HERE AND THAT’S ALL THAT MATTERED. THEY ATTEMPTED TO KEEP ME IN GOOD SPIRITS. I REALIZED THAT THEY WOULD HAVE TO LEAVE SOON AND I WOULD BE ALONE AND INCAPCITATED. THE THING I DISLIKED THE MOST. THEN I REALIZED THAT I STILL HAD THE CAPACITY TO THINK. THAT’S WHAT I DID AS LONG AS I COULD THAT NIGHT. I THOUGHT ABOUT THE PAST AND MISTAKES I HAVE MADE. I THOUGHT ABOUT LOSING MY ABILITY TO USE MY HANDS AND FEET. SO, I TRIED TO GET UP THAT NIGHT. JUST TO CHECK. THAT WAS FORTUNATELY STOPPED BY THE NURSE JUST IN TIME.
I THOUGHT ABOUT MY REASON FOR STILL BEING HERE? THINKING THAT IF THE CREATOR HAS TAKEN ME THIS FAR. THAT I MUST HAVE WORK TO DO. I HAD A CONVERSATION WITH MY CREATOR THAT NIGHT. I DON’T REMEMBER FALLING ASLEEP BUT I DO REMEMBER WAKING UP TO MY BEST FRIEND VON. HE WAS REMINDING ME TO BE THANKFUL. TELLING ME THAT I AM A MIRACLE AS PER THE DOCTORS. TELLING ME THAT I HAVE MORE LOVE IN THIS WORLD THAN I KNOW.ALL I COULD THINK ABOUT WAS GETTING OUT OF THE HOSPITAL. THE NURSE ATTENDANTS CAME IN SO I TRIED TO ACT AS IF NOTHING HAD HAPPENED TO ME. THEN I NOTICED THAT EVERYTHING I WANTED MY BODY TO DO WAS A TASK. I HAD TO COMMAND MY ARMS TO MOVE AND MY LEGS TO MOVE. THE SUBCONSCIOUS PART OF THOSE PROCESSES WAS GONE. I COULDN’T TELL THEM THAT IF I WANTED TO LEAVE THE HOSPITAL. SO I USED ALL MY CONCENTRATION TO DO JUST AS THEY ASKED. I EVEN FAKED FEELING A PIN PRICK. THAT’S HOW MUCH I WANTED TO GO.
KIND OF FREE
ABOUT 1 HOUR LATER A NURSE CAME BACK TO TELL US THAT IF EVERYTHING CHECKED OUT THAT AFTERNOON. I COULD POSSIBLY BE DISCHARGED. SHE ALSO TOLD ME THAT I HAVE A SCRIPT TO TAKE. I WOULD FIND OUT LATER. THAT THIS MEDICATION WOULD PROBABLY BE APART OF MY LIFE FOREVER. I WAS TOLD THAT I HAD A CHOLESTEROL SPIKE. THAT THE MEDICATION WAS A BLOOD THINNER. I WAS ALSO TOLD MY DIET WOULD HAVE TO CHANGE AS WELL. AROUND 2:30PM THE DOCTOR AND HIS TEAM CAME BACK TO CONGRATULATE ME ON PULLING THROUGH. HE ALSO REITERATED THAT I WAS A MIRACLE. HE TOLD ME THAT HE WAS AMAZED BY MY TURNAROUND. I WAS RELEASED WITH MEDICATIONS IN HAND. I WAS ALSO PUT ON A 325MG DOSE OF ASPIRIN ONCE A DAY EVERY DAY FOR LIFE. VON AND MY FAMILY ESCORTED ME OUT OF THE HOSPITAL. TO MY DELIGHT I MUST ADD. I WAS DRIVEN HOME BUT THE ENTIRE RIDE WAS BRIGHT. I MEAN I NEEDED SHADES BRIGHT.
WE FINALLY ARRIVED AND THE DOGS WERE RIGHT THERE TO WELCOME ME. VON HAD EVERYTHING IN PLACE FOR ME. NOW I WAS HOME BUT I WAS ROBBED OF SOME THINGS THAT I HAD TAKEN FOR GRANTED. THINGS LIKE USING THE BATHROOM, REALLY. HAVING TO GO AND THEN TELLING YOUR BODY TO GO. A FEAT THAT REQUIRED A FEW CLEAN UPS WHEN I DIDN’T GET IT RIGHT. I REMEMBER WAKING UP BUT NOT BEING ABLE TO MOVE MY BODY. IT IS THE MOST HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE ANYONE COULD HAVE. FOR THE FIRST 2 MONTHS. I WAS RETRAINING MYSELF. I NOW WALKED WITH A SLIGHT LIMP. MY FACE SAGGED ON ONE SIDE. I SLEPT AT ODD TIMES AND WOKE AT ODD TIMES. THE MOST HORRIFIC THING THAT HAPPENED WAS MY COULD WORK LIKE I DID BEFORE. EVEN WHEN I WANTED TO, I COULDN’T BECAUSE I WAS STILL STUCK. HAVING TO GO TO APPOINTMENT AFTER APPOINTMENT. THAT WAS MY NEXT HURDLE. THANKS TO THE ALL MIGHTY. I HAD FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO HELP. SO, I HAD TO MAKE A CHOICE. EITHER I WOULD LIVE TO MY BEST ABILITY OR DIE IN SELF PITY.
I SAY THIS BECAUSE DEPRESSION WAS MY NEXT FOE. I HAVE HAD BOUTS WITH DEPRESSION IN THE PAST AND I SOUGHT HELP AND GOT DIRECTION. THIS WAS A DIFFERENT KIND OF DEPRESSION. THE KIND THAT MADE ME HAVE TO DECIDE TO LIVE OR DIE EVERY DAY. FROM MY PAST EXPERIENCES. I KNEW THE SIGNS OF DEPRESSION. SO, I INFORMED MY PHYSICIAN AND HE GOT ME ON TRACK WITH A NEW COUNSELOR AND A R/X SCRIPT FOR DEPRESSION. I AM GLAD HE DID TO, BECAUSE OF HIS ACTIONS. I WAS GIVEN CLARITY WHEN I NEEDED IT THE MOST. INSTEAD OF MY EMOTIONS FLUCTUATING AND LEAVING ME FEELING HELPLESS. I STARTED TO SEE THE CUES THAT CREATION WAS GIVING ME. HOPE SLOWLY BUT SURELY CAME TO BE MY FRIEND. THE EXPERIENCE MADE ME THANKFUL FOR EVERYTHING I HAD BEEN THROUGH.
I WAS FORCED TO LIVE IN REALITY. I HAD TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT I AM NOT THE SAME PERSON THAT I WAS ANYMORE. I HAD TO ACKNOWLEDGE AND , BECOME ME. MEANING STRESS AND ANXIETY COULD NOT BE MY PLAYGROUND ANYMORE. MEANING THAT NOTHING IS MORE VALUABLE THAN THIS PRECIOUS LIFE I HAVE BEEN GIVEN. THERE IS NOT ENOUGH MONEY IN THIS WORLD. THERE’S NOTHING THAT I WOULD INTENTIONALLY DO TO BRING ON ANOTHER STROKE. MY DIET HAS CHANGED FOR THE BETTER, JUST LIKE MY SLEEP HABITS. EVEN MY WATER INTAKE IS MONITORED AND MAINTAINED ON A DAILY BASIS. THERE ARE NO LIES OR LIARS IN MY LIFE. I NEVER LEND WHAT I CAN’T AFFORD TO LOSE. I LIVE IN THE NOW AND I ONLY VISIT THE PAST AND POSSIBILITIES.
I AM THANKFUL !
* To my Home and friends at Bond Community Health Care Center. I thank every one of you for getting me stabilized and to the hospital. Without the prompt care. Who knows where I would be?
*I would like to thank my team of doctors at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. You saved my life and I appreciate you and the Great Care.
