Just appeared in my mind that go back to my oldest draft-moded blog and work my wat through all 133 of them. Drafts are like socio-cultural placemarkers… Read more “Sun Walkers by Jneiro Jarel (Dr. Who Dat) [Ancestral Wisdom 2016]”
Shit knocks especially the ending with Syd vocalizing….
THIS ALBUM IS ONE OF THE BEST I HAVE HEARD IN A LONG TIME.
Upset about needing to show proper respects in Reblogging for the wrong reason.
Props since you popped on the tellie with my folks, Anderson .Paak…But when I heard/saw him flowing the “Hip 2 Da Game” track by Lord Finesse, I knew he was official hip hop with it.
“…original Black man…” …
when I was in the DMV for graduate school at Howard University (M.A. in History, Africa focus) I felt fresher than most bumpin’ OC, Lord Finesse + De La Soul + Omar Lye Fook (my favorite singer after Stevie Wonder of all-time — and they have performed to gether so check him out)
I knew he was dope on the mic even more so when I heard him with Kendrick Lamar bringing the lyrical goods
– way to leave so thoughtful word play—
“…in an instant I’ll be gone…”
Yup smh with respect.
Man this sucks I dug Mac Miller and was proud of him as an artist. He had dexterity in his flows. Got me flashing back after that Lord Finesse beat having track came on. I had forgotten I had even heard that a longer time which further confirmed his dopeness to me. I am a Lord Finesse since like 1994-5 and worn out his album as a newbie to the Eastern seaboard.
“I’m white boy awesome.”
Listen to Knock Knock – Mac Miller by aykon97 #np on #SoundCloud
https://soundcloud.com/aykon97/knock-knock-mac-millerhen I heard of his death earlier and I sensed there was a strong Vibe I felt this musical artist.
Listen to FACES by Mac Miller #np on #SoundCloud
Yup as my good friend, Oxygen Eternal (Django, co-host of All of the Above Radio) says and applies here.
“Mac Miller was a keeper of ‘The Styles’…” #DrClayborneSayings
Damn bruh… 😦
– Thom Hartmann’s valuable comments start at the 7:10 mark.
Thank you Thom Hartmann for being so EXPLICITLY CLEAR as is routine in your handling of knowledge.
So Colin Kaepenick KNOWS ‘THAT OF WHICH HE TALKS’ AND WILL NOT STAND FOR and instead chose to kneel about honorably!
Francis Scott Key was WACK (a mild understatement)!

INFORMary = Where from am I INFORMed?
Identified on this day, in order to better equip me by clearing Connecting key INFORMants that I STRONGly recommend to others to be used to aid others in achieving one or all of the “Three Es = Enlightenment, Empowerment & Enjoyment”
Jeremy Scahill from Democracy Now! days in the early to mid-2000s. This guy is On It from all I can tell for a LONG WHILE … way overdue blog mention. Looking to interweave Tha Realness at all times for the better of humankind via a more INFORMed and INFORMal(ity) operations among us and our folks (friends and folks) and socio-cultural groups.
May seem Deep and it is. Requires drawing from deep inside one’s self in various ways.
So COMPLETE a work of Art as Informative
JUST YESTERDAY I gave an 8 minute teaching demonstration that included my breakdown of the rise of Mass Culture as a key root of good and bad cultural developments in the 1920s
Directly in reference to the inspiring lyrical content. Bravo, more please!
LINK UP (= Connect then Develop Ties in ‘Informal and Formal ways’) my folks
After you get past what I think of but have never uttered “Assholisms” (which typically = over the top male bravado…I hope folks do not miss that this is a ‘Song of Resistance’ in way too many ways’ to the dominant socio-cultural and political-economic ‘norms’ in way too many spaces and places of Life.
Let’s Link Up folks.
Combining terms… to help pinpoint a description (which is fitting in this current domestic socio-political era)
“The fasces was carried by the lictors, or attendants, and was characterized by an ax head projecting from a bundle of elm or birch rods about 5 feet (1.5 metres) long and tied together with a red strap; it symbolized penal power. When carried inside Rome, the ax was removed (unless the magistrate was a dictator or general celebrating a triumph) as recognition of the right of a Roman citizen to appeal a magistrate’s ruling. The discovery of a miniature iron set of fasces in a 7th-century-BCE Etruscan tomb at Vetulonia confirms the traditional view that Rome derived the fasces from the Etruscans. The Roman emperors, beginning with Augustus in 19 BCE, had 12 fasces, but, after Domitian(reigned 81–96 CE), they had 24; dictators, 24; consuls, 12; praetors, 6; legates, 5; priests, 1. Lowering of the fasces was a form of salute to a higher official.
Benito Mussolini’s Fascist Party of Italy was named for the fasces, which the members adopted in 1919 as their emblem. The Winged Liberty dime, minted in the United States from 1916 to 1945, depicts the fasces on its reverse side.” Source: https://www.britannica.com/topic/fasces
I love my friends!
One of my MOSST MEANINGFUL favorite Life Anthems.
Since, BUT Only for, this Post-Stroke Rehab period, AFRISPORA has turned into only a blog/vlog.
Appreciate my real world and online folks that have ‘Held Me Down’ as I probably me first heard Q-Tip say in a verse. It radiated a MEANING then almost 30 years ago.
It is easy yet hard to explain but should one have to…? As Jalen Rose puts it, “It’s ‘Cultural!’ Yup, I agree bruh.
Kofi is Ryan Coogler’s Akan Day Name. Like mine is Kwame (Saturday born), Kofi indicates that he was born on a Friday in 1986 in his case. Each day carries a variety of attributable spiritual (thus behavioral) traits.
He is symbolically my/our folks now, so he gets a nickname as a term of endearment.

It was nice to get out for Throwback Tuesday at The Room in Hollywood and inspiring to see a brother there in person pulling folks into his establishment. Definitelyan
IWOW what a find today…the joint “Ocean Breeze” even brought forth tears as I am dealing with some MAJOR life challenges that have me “off my square” as I have heard said but it was therapeutic to be thankful to be reflective and self-care via music as I have subconsciously and consciously been doing ALL MY LIFE…
…I chose Academics but have less tapped Artistic and past Athletic abilities…but “I ain’t dead yet!”
🙂 Enjoy and be Enlightened and Empowered,
