Election Day...

I been slackin on my blogger game BUT.. whatever. im back...
We Had a crazy Halloween weekend up at OU.. shit was wild.. Got some footage of course lol. Will be posted soon..
But yea its election day.. the day everyone has been waiting for... Im anxious to see the outcome..
I found an article about todays election.. check it.


Minister Farrakhan recently spoke and offered recommendation on what to do IF Barack Obama should actually win this thing called an election. I know some of you won't read it and some of you will. I believe this was definitely geared towards Black people, but I personally think it can apply to anybody overjoyed at an Obama win. He basically says stay sober and don't party like its 1999, because there are still a lot of people that don't want this to happen. And they are often violent and racist people - not all, but some. Anyway, here it is:"Here's my counsel to you.
If brother (Barack Obama) wins, there will be more joy in the hearts of so many. More than we have ever experienced probably in our lives. People my age and older who have lived 75, 80, 85, 90 years will not mind dying because they will say in death, I saw what I never thought I would see in my lifetime.But then others are going to go out in the street and celebrate with wild joy and revelry as though it was the Philadelphia Phillies winning the World Series, but that's not wise. That's not wise because your joy is somebody else's sadness and in your moment of revelry, there are those who will be so angry they can't get to him (Barack Obama) but they can get to you. And if you're out late at night just walking the street happy and drunk, you smoked a few of those funny cigarettes, you're just so happy and overjoyed.Then someone rolls up on you, they don't tell you who they are but they're undercover and you're in a spot where they can just take your life. Don't think that some are not willing to do that with what we've heard coming from talk radio about people really hateful and would kill him (Barack Obama), but if they can't get to him and you are out drunk and partying 2, 3 o'clock in the morning when you should have been home.
How many Black people may die on that night across this nation. And just suppose the election is stolen. In your frustration, are you going to go out now and set fires and loot and act crazy. Not only is the S.W.A.T. Team ready and the National Guard but the Federal troops are already "posse comitatus" which forbids the Federal troops fr interfering in domestic affairs that's already put to the side now. If you act the fool you will be slaughtered.So my counsel to you would be if he wins, rejoice intelligently. Don't overdo it. The Quran says it like this, 'when Allah's help and victory comes and you see men entering the religion of Allah in companies celebrate the praise of Thy Lord and ask His protection.' Well I'm not now talking about a victory in terms of men and women coming to the ranks of Islam in companies. I'm talking about a victory that we never expected but now we're full of expectancy of because we've heard the polls. If you win, celebrate the praise of God who brought us fr a mighty long way and made us in a time like this to ascend to the highest post in one of the greatest countries in the history of the world.Don't act foolishly because Obama's rise is the rise of all of us who would be risen by his rise. Who would be inspired by his rise. These young children that are here who probably want an NBA contract or an NFL contract and want to be singers & comedians. Now they say well the sky is the limit. I can be what I want to be. Well, that's a key that can't ever go back in the box again."

True shit of course... Im out. *DeadOn*

Can you really Freestyle?

Freestyle rap
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Freestyle rap is an improvisational form of rapping, performed with few or no previously composed lyrics, which is said to reflect a direct mapping of the mental state and performing situation of the artist. It is non-scripted, non-rehearsed, uncut, and the rawest form of hip-hop. Artists will often refer to places and objects in their immediate setting. Freestyle rapping forces an individual to think on the spot, describe their surroundings, and, to a certain degree, rap uncensored from what is inside. It is similar in this sense to improvisational music or acting and draws comparisons to improvisational jazz in particular.

I think freestyle rap is sometimes taken for granted... People should understand what freestyling actually is (see above) ..and you will notice that most rappers dont actually freestyle when asked to. All the youtube videos i labeled"freestyle", are ACTUAL freestyles...

It takes skill to come up with ideas quickly that make sense together... It's nothin to remember a few written lyrics then recite them to a beat and call it a "freestyle"... that's weak...

Usually you can tell if the emcee is actually freestyling by the way they deliver and the content of the rhymes... In real freestyles you will usually have short pauses or mess-ups and the content will usually be many different topics....

"Call it a Lyrical Brainstorm" or "Blogging to a beat"

In my opinion, real artists should be able to freestyle... (ex. Charles Hamilton, Tone, Grenade, Q-tip, Akil Dasan, Scriyl ect.).. thats just a few i can think of right off the top... I'm sure theres way more... BUT

Props goes to all the emcees that can freestyle... Ya'll deserve more recognition. PEACE.*DeadOn*

Dumb it Down...

Hate vs. Opinion..

HATE–verb (used with object) 1. to dislike intensely or passionately; feel extreme aversion for or extreme hostility toward; detest: to hate the enemy; to hate bigotry.
2. to be unwilling; dislike: I hate to do it.
–verb (used without object) 3. to feel intense dislike, or extreme aversion or hostility.
–noun 4. intense dislike; extreme aversion or hostility.
5. the object of extreme aversion or hostility

Aight.. So today i was watchin tv and that "Hi hater" video came on.. and i told one a my close friends that shit was weak.. So she preceded to call me a hater haha i wasnt trynna hate tho it was jus my opinion. I've never been one to hate or whatever... When people state they negative opinion towards somethin it comes off as hate these days.. is it jus an opposing position or could it be hatin' in disguise?lol.. Some people say jealousy has to come wit the negative opinion.. iono.. But say for instance a nigga walk up to you a say yo shoes aint fresh and u kno in the back of yo head yo shits fresh.. yu gon call this nigga a hater for statin his opinion...People gon be scared to say how they feel in fear of bein called a hater.. Cuz you kno NOONE wants to be considered a hater... smh

I think all this "Hi hater" shit needs to stop.. I seen they got t-shirts now. haha.. but yea the term hater has been thrown around entirely too loosely.. jus cuz a nigga dont agree wit yu dont mean they hatin.. when its all said and done JUS DO YOU. *DeadOn*


These dudes got the right idea...
