what's really good? getting up all over my hood trying to spread that truth...recognize that whatever comes from his mouth can't be true about this war....try to wake up.... Posted by Hello

check it out folks i don't know how long it will work but it is a link to audio of the anti hot 97 rally...
i couldn't make it but it was good to hear positive vibes being spread about the trash being spread on these stations.

things are good trying to plan el puente's annual hip hop showcase. it has been going on for like over 10 years with incredible poets mc's dancers actors creating a space for positive messages for youth. if any of my peoples want to holla for an opportunity to perform get at me, or i will get at you. we talking about early may. more to follow.

had the chance to build with jannine from liverpool. what are you f*cking sufflad?

let's not even begin with the knicks. i was at the garden section 421 row b seat 16 for the disaster of last second inepititude. i think we have the most number of lost games at the buzzer. sorry yall even though i believe, that felt like a dagger to me. props to the fellow knicks fan who i rode the train back uptown with, we both shared about 20 sighs of frustration.


this is my hood Posted by Hello
check mate .... you be the judge....JADA!!!

We gon' handle this like grown men, you won't win
You don't even feel comfortable in your own skin
I rap my ass off, I'm fightin' the champ with the glass jaw
at the Garden or Nassau
See me, couple hood niggaz behind stars
I heard you put a couple good niggaz bars, (Preme!)
I might never sell that much
But you can bet your last 2 quarters, I never tell that much
Picture 'Kiss not come out swingin'
It's like going to see 50 at a show and he don't come out singin'
Yeah, you got a felony, but you ain't a predicate
Never the King of New York, you live in Connecticut
You don't be in the hood, you be in the woods
Fuckin' wit' me, is where you really gon' be for good
I hold the 4-5 myself, and hop out the Range on 1-4-5 myself
This is a true fact
Since when has it become cool to get shot and not shoot back
Trackmasters shelfed you, Bravehearts helped you
Then everybody felt you, now I gotta melt you
And don't try to pull rank on 'Kiss
Cause the niggaz I'ma send to do it ain't gon' miss
Be layed up stiff, I spit straight up 'piph
I did real songs with BIG, no made-up shits
And I don't got a problem with clout
You ain't get shot again yet, so what's your second album about? (Nothin'!)
Your raps are pre-school, you made a lot of money, now be cool
'Fore I swell up your lips like seafood
Can I get a mic check? You don't stand a chance
To dance with me dog, ya steps ain't right yet
Block is just fine, homie, the D's straight
Most likely your new CD is a weed plate
Bunch of love songs, 100% pure garbage
Just somethin' to break up buds on
You should just sell clothes and sneakers
Cause outta your whole camp your flow's the weakest
I'm in the town where the young boys is clappin', (clappin')
You runnin' around with the lieutenant and captain, (laughs)
It'll take a lifetime to see 'Kiss
You had to get shot 9 times to be rich.....

about time right?
it's been a minute yall i know but i've been good. spirits are doing well, i was on vacation for a week just chilling out kicking it with some folks, building on the book. feeling like fuck it i think i'ma hafta do this independent styles. if no one's gonna offer anything, i just wanna get it out. so it's like that and that's the way it is.

went to a bed and breakfast upstate. nice bed terrible breakfast. check out www.akwaaba.com for some real jawn. if yall plan to go let me know how it is. i just heard about it and it looks real chill. my bad juma just putting people on.

performed at a tsunami benefit for latino greeks in the city. big ups to all the folks there doing an incredible thing coming out to support. not really a poetry venue but thats all good. met some people and even got the chance to perform some new hot shit. my parents came through and had a good time.

next week i'll be rocking at some college in the city. don't really have the details right this second but it will be good to get out there again.

hip hop reviews
well i'm sure yall been heard about the 50 cent beef with like everybody in the industry. for him to go at jada nas fat joe is crazy cuz he's messing with some lyrical giants. but it raises an interesting question: do lyrical skills result in record sales? in the peoples i just mentioned sadly no it doesn't, but does that make you less nice? never that. even though i don't consider 50 within the top 10 today, he is a problem. just like hammer and vanilla ice needed to be looked at for their contributions to hiphop, how has 50 changed the game? bringing the guerilla mentality to mixtapes, he killed the streets flooded the market before his first jawn dropped and created the buzz that many artists crave for. instead of putting the power in someone else's hands he manifested that shit himself. can't sleep on his hunger and motivation that's for sure.

who's gonna win? some think that answer is with who's gonna sell more records. sad but true, 50 will win that one (especially when you consider the amount of publicity he's getting in the news and even a little picture in best buy) (side note: 4 out of 5 hip hop record buyers are white). on top of that he raises an interesting view that street credibility means nothing. what are the streets? questlove (i don't got no quote just okayplayer.com back in the day) said that the streets are this manufactured marketed concept that doesn't really exist because if the streets got your back, how come the streets don't translate into platinum. 90% of albums and products go quadruple pleather. so you gotta freak that market and shamelessly self promoted the shit out yourself. something can be learned from that.

who am i gonna ride for? who ever doesn't get hurt. some stupid n*ggas take this shit too seriously. really at the end of the day, every one of these dudes is kicking they feet up, blazing els and laughing at how much "the streets" care about this sh*t. n*ggas is beefing over here, when they need to be organizing around all the bullshit that is happening. pop in some dead prez organize and build.

the massacre got some heat. don't sleep. but i can't wait to hear the jada response. even though i know wrestling is fake, i'm still a fan.

stay up peoples
