We don't stop!

I haven't given up on this blog. My piece of crap 1999 IBM computer has gone down, so I am using this public internet stuff. But, when it gets fixed, or if I get a new unit, I will be back on.

Memphis Bleek in fight?

You know, I can' help but feel sorry for rapper Memphis Bleek. He can't get his shine, he has to ride on the coat tails of Jay, and the brotha just cannot get a break! And now, this whole getting into a fight thing happens. Apparently, he got into a fight with a DJ in North Carolina named "Charlamange the God" and got his butt whupped!

Funniest thing about this was the response of his record company to cover it up so he wouldn't lose his "gangsta" credibility, which his music thrives on:

To add more to the proof of the altercation. DEF JAM is truly trying to save their sinking ship and Memph Bleek is truly not gangsta. A faxed letter was received Sunday (5/15) from an attorney reppin' Bleek and Def Jam stating that if any pictures of Bleeks Rocafella Chain or any internet acutions regarding his chain appeanar online then Innercity Broadcasting (owners of Hot 103.9/Columbia, SC) would be sued and Charlamagne The God would have charges pressed against him for assult and battery and strong armed robbery.

Memphis's chain on EBay? ROFL!!!!!!!!!!!

That's what sucks about being a "gangsta" rapper; constantly having to prove how hard you are, getting sucker punched, and before you know it the few fans you might have aren't f-ing with your music anymore. It must suck.

On a better note, even though I can't stand Slim Shady, I have to give him credit to giving the Anger Management Tour #3 DJ job to the Alchemist. That was a good move. But what about the fact that Eminem's fellow artist and tour act 50 Cent said in his Vibe Magazine interview that Koch Records was an "artist graveyard" and that Koch artists are no good, and the Alchemist turns out to be a Koch artist? Oh well, I guess what goes around comes around.

We can continue to reap profits from the Blacks without the effort of physical slavery. Look at the current methods of containment that they use on themselves: IGNORANCE, GREED, and SELFISHNESS.

Their IGNORANCE is the primary weapon of containment. A great man once said, "The best way to hide something from Black people is to put it in a book." We now live in the Information Age. They have gained the opportunity to read any book on any subject through the efforts of their fight for freedom, yet they refuse to read. There are numerous books readily available at Borders, Barnes & Noble, and, not to mention their own Black Bookstores that provide solid blueprints to reach economic equality (which should have been their fight all along), but few read consistently, if at all.

GREED is another powerful weapon of containment. Blacks, since the abolition of slavery, have had large amounts of money at their disposal.
Last year they spent 10 billion dollars during Christmas, out of their 450 billion dollars in total yearly income (2.22%). Any of us can use them as our target market, for any business venture we care to dream up, no matter how outlandish, they will buy into it. Being primarily a consumer people, they function totally by greed. They continually want more, with little thought for saving or investing. They would rather buy some new sneaker than invest in starting a business. Some even neglect their children to have the latest Tommy or FUBU, And they still think that having a Mercedes, and a big house gives them "Status" or that they have achieved their Dream. They are fools! The vast majority of their people are still in poverty because their greed holds them back from collectively making better communities. With the help of BET, and the rest of their black media that often broadcasts destructive images into their own homes, we will continue to see huge profits like those of Tommy and Nike. (Tommy Hilfiger has even jeered them, saying he doesn't want their money, and look at how the fools spend more with him than ever before!). They'll continue to show off to each other while we build solid communities with the profits from our businesses that we market to them.

SELFISHNESS, ingrained in their minds through slavery, is one of the major ways we can continue to contain them. One of their own, Dubois said that there was an innate division in their culture. A "Talented Tenth" he called it. He was correct in his deduction that there are segments of their culture that has achieved some "form" of success. However, that segment missed the fullness of his work. They didn't read that the "Talented Tenth" was then responsible to aid The Non Talented Ninety Percent in achieving a better life. Instead, that segment has created another class, a Buppie class that looks down on their people or aids them in a condescending manner. They will never achieve what we have. Their selfishness does not allow them to be able to work together on any project or endeavor of substance. When they do get together, their selfishness lets their egos get in the way of their goal. Their so-called help organizations seem to only want to promote their name without making any real change in their community. They are content to sit in conferences and conventions in our hotels, and talk about what they will do, while they award plaques to the best speakers, not the best doers. Is there no end to their selfishness? They steadfastly refuse to see that TOGETHER EACH ACHIEVES MORE (TEAM) They do not understand that they are no better than each other of what they own as a matter of fact, most of those Buddies are but one or two pay checks away from poverty. All of which is under the control of our pens in our offices and our rooms. Yes, we will continue to contain them as long as they refuse to read, continue to buy anything they want, and keep thinking they are "helping" their communities by paying dues to organizations which do little other than hold lavish conventions in our hotels. By the way, don't worry about any of them reading this letter, remember, 'THEY DON'T READ!!!!

Stuff I've missed

First of all, I've been out the loop on my hip hop news, slacking up. I was doing some surfing on street gangs, and I found a lot of hip hop news on the siteGangsta411.

First of all, I think the whole Detroit rap war and the murder of Detroit rapper Blade Icewood is sad. Here we got another situation like what happened to Camouflouge and Soulja Slim, two other brothers who never got their shine because of stupid shyt.

How about DJ Green Lantern leaving shitty, I mean Shady Records? The funniest thing he said was that his phone call to Jadakiss created a situation where there would be "tension" between 50 and Eminem. The only thing I regret is that not happening, because if it did, that would be alot more interesting than 90% of the music they put out.

I would love to have seen the cat fight between Foxy Brown and Jacki-O! That would have been something worth taping! But really, what is up with Foxy? I swear, I've heard about her coming back for like the last couple of years. I just don't know, she has a serious identity problem, because some of her music is all sad and dreary, and then some of it is her being what she was back in the day, that Ill Na Na stuff. I hope Foxy gets it together, because she's hot.

Meanwhile, Jacki-O is trying to cash in like Paula Abdul's so called "ex-lover" and milking her lies about kicking Foxy's ass for all it's worth. Jacki-O ain't shyt, she's a miserable looking burnt out ex-stripper who sucked one too many d's. She needs to go back to the miserable hole in the wall strip club she came from.

Check out the 2005 FBI gang assessment report, it's pretty interesting.
