Shhhhhh! Hold up a second….do you hear that? Ohhhhhh it’s the music GODS whispering sweet nothings in my ear. Anybody need a little inspiring? Don’t worry kid, I got you……….
Check yo self, are you on point? The answer should be all the time.
Even if you find that you are not 100 with it, don’t trip because you can always dust it off and try again.
And remember, it’s good for the soul to SMILE sometimes, even through all the rain and the pain……

Last night I was on the phone with my homie and we got on the subject of hip hop, mainly east coast vs west coast style. My girl maintains there’s nothing like east coast hip hop, while I had to argue for the latter. Now I grew up on the east cost, dirty south if you want to get technical, but if I was forced at gunpoint to choose a region to roll with I’d have to say the wild wild west. My love affair began in the early and mid 90’s when the g-funk sound captivated the nation. Don’t get me wrong though, good hip-hop is good hip-hop no matter where it comes from, and the east definitely put it down, but I have somewhat of a spiritual connection to west coast orchestration. It may be the heavy reliance on the musical structure of old school funk , soul and R&B, or the fact that Geroge C and the P funk are the staple of my musical diet that places west coast production so high on my list. There’s something to love about hip hop from all over the globe, so don’t trip, but if you had to choose what would you say?
Here’s 3 of my top choice old school funk/soul joints and the west coast bangers that sampled them
Bootsy Collins- Munchies for your love. I would have to say this song is probably one of my favorite songs ever recorded so I’m posting two sampling joints.
Tupac- Runnin (original)
also by Kokane- No Pain No Gain
Zapp IV- Computer Love
Celly Cell- It’s Goin Down
Parliament Funkadelic- (Not Just) Knee deep
Digital Underground- Kiss You Back

This story is just one of the many reasons I believe it would be considered a proper security measure for parents to teach their little girls how to properly carry a firearm and discerningly use it. If you don’t believe in the use of guns then get your girl a tazer, stun gun, cattle prod or any other type of incapacitating weapon that can be used to fend off the depraved souls that this society houses in abundance. It’s real out here………
I wonder why we take from our women,
why we rape our women,
do we hate our women?
I think it’s time we kill for our women
time to heal our women
be real to our women
and if we don’t
we’ll have a race of babies
that will hate the ladies
that make the babies…….
