Dang, bruh! RIP Mac Miller [SALUTE!]

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.

‘Why I’ll never stand again for ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ (SALUTE!)

– Thom Hartmann’s valuable comments start at the 7:10 mark.

KING: Why I’ll never stand again for ‘The Star-Spangled Banner by Sean King

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)!

LIFE ANTHEMS! ~ Games Begin

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.

SALUTE! ~ Black Panther’s director: ‘Brotha Kofi’ Ryan Coogler

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.

Asante bruh!

LIVE INSPIRED! ~ Blu Matic Beats

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,
