Flashback Fridays

I know Senor and Spike are beefing but I had today’s Flashback can be attributed to a conversation I had with two AFRICAN AMERICAN EMORY UNIVERSITY students. In our conversation we discussed their dislike for The Cosby Show, A Different World and how they would never consider attending an HBCU. Not to say they aren’t proud to be black because they certainly are aware of their ethnicity, but it did stun me how opposed they were to attending an HBCU on the grounds of the education is perceived to be a lower quality than other institutions. And The Cosby Show isn’t real! There are no households black or white with a father doctor and a mother lawyer under the same roof. To me that was never the point. The Cosby Show gave us HOPE! Showed those of us in the hood what could be and I guarantee the African American enrollments in colleges and universities shot up during this time period. Shout out to my man INORI for getting that degree and the homie Jen at the Adidas store who is in graduate school at CAU! 

Holla Black!

In Memory Of…

“For anyone who still has doubts about 911, weigh out the facts and the overwhelming amount of evidence supporting the reality that the events of 911 were one big set-up.This exposes the lies, disproving every aspect of the bogus 911 commission report put forth by the corrupt government.

Judge for yourselves, but investigate the facts and evidence before jumping to a conclsuion.

A comprehensive list of over 100 lies and omissions in the 911 commission report can be found in this link:

In honor of the victims of 9/11 I wanted to post this thought provoking documentary. The first time I saw this I couldn’t believe what I was watching! Flawed? Yes. Errors? Yes. But no one can deny the validity of the premise or the documented research on this movie. To all the deceased victims & the families of the victims The Kaos Effect.com honors you and sends prayer to the GOD of our fathers for you in this time of solace and reflection!

Flashback Fridays

King Sun – Be Black

The influence of ISLAM on hip hop cannot be understated. From NOI & the Five Percent Nation to Nubian Islamic Hebrew & Sunni Muslims, cats were dropping knowledge (or science) in rhymes that challenged you to research (or do the knowledge), read, learn & be civilized (or well rounded/ educated/ intellectual). The videos often times were depictions of brothers lecturing or teaching classes. It’s a wonder how music is no longer used as a tool to educate but denegrate us.

Selah!

Flashback Fridays: Hip Hop History 201 Edition

I ain’t saying nuthin’. Do your homework! 

Ok here’s a cliff note:

“Yaggfu Front, Action Packed Adventure — The talented rap group immediately made a name for itself with this 1993 release, their sole album. They’re one of many such early ’90s rap outfits, never known by a large audience, but mightily influential for later figures. Combining funky breakbeats and an unusual delivery, Yaggfu produced twisting, witty lyrics with jazzy flourishes.”
