REVISTED:Donald Goines ***messymandella***

    Donald Goines books were introduced to me five years ago, and I am captivated by his personalized admission of his own insecurities and shame of not being able to leave the drug game behind to focus on all other aspects of the culture. If you have never read a Donald Goines book, be advised no topic is overlooked. He takes your mind to the depravity that haunts you in your nightmares. 

The protagonist in his novels are a little too real…

         Could he have been too real to the dealers and hustlers in the neighborhood? Sometimes a fictional character can be a carbon copy of the man down the street. In a sense this could have caused his demise, because some of his novels were written behind bars. Could they have assumed he was snitching? Yes, he could have assumed that he world knew he was discussing to create a buzz for his books?

“Donald Goines was born in Detroit to a relatively comfortable family – his parents, Joseph and Myrtle Goines, owned a local dry cleaner, and he did not have problems with the law or drugs. The children occasionally helped at the shop. Goines attended Catholic elementary school and was expected to go into his family’s laundry business. Instead Goines enlisted in the US Air Force, and to get in he had to lie his age. From 1952 to 1955 he served in the army. During this period he got hooked on heroin. When he returned to Detroit from Japan, he was a heroin addict.

The next 15 years from 1955 Goines spent pimping, robbing, stealing, bootlegging, and running numbers, or doing time. His seven prison sentences totaled 6,5 years. While in jail in the 1960s he first attempted to write Westerns without much success – he loved cowboy movies. A few years later, serving a different sentence at a different prison, he was introduced to the work of Iceberg Slim (Robert Beck). Before his release, Goines finished two books, Dopefiend (1971) and the semi-autobiographical Whoreson (1972). The latter novel was a story about the son of a prostitute who becomes a Detroit ghetto pimp. Also Beck’s first book, Pimp: The Story of My Life (1967), was autobiographical. Goines was released in 1970, after which he wrote 16 novels with Holloway House, Iceberg Slim’s publisher. Hoping to get rid of surroundings – he was back on smack – he moved with his family to the Los Angeles ghetto of Watts.”-A.L. Clarke

Imagine someone so horrific that  to get out of their hood, he  forged a birth certificate at 14 Years Old,  just to join the air force. Donald knew he wanted to escape from the horrors of the hood. Donald leaving the hood was a gift and a curse. He became addicted to Heroine at 15 years old. By that time, he was still reading and embracing the writings of Iceberg Slim, but he couldn’t quite kick that habit. So when he came back from War,  his Heroine War still existed. He went to jail repeatedly and joined the Crime Underworld.

People will try to escape waiting to  hand him that street work, but he pimped, and hustled.

Donald in the end met the characters in his book and dealt with so many that he became too real for his audience. 

      When you write fiction about the Street Life, that fiction was not  comfort to the end. When he was murdered with his common law wife, it  could have been a drug deal gone bad?  Some believe his realistic books labeled him an information.
He repeatedly entered jail, and wrote books while behind bars.
In the hood, if someone is regularly arrested, but always get back out, they can be labeled as a snitch. Donald’s stories were too descriptive, that local criminals believed that he was talking about them,even if his books are considered fiction.

          Donald and his girlfriend were both shot and killed together. No one knows who murdered them.
When you assume that the hood does not destroy you, you underestimate the common link of failure and destruction. The game will lead to riches,but you never know who will set you up, or try to rob you of your riches.

           The real understand that the game may lead to fame,but to make it you have to stay away from that stage. It is so easy to lay down with fleas and want to be seen and to turn off the rest of the world, but only for the lost. The Real understand…

Confession: Lil Jay’s Song Is Fire Yup AND Bobby Shmurda I Said IT!***messymandella***

 

I am against violence, and you know I will beat a dead horse to death. I will stop when we get diplomas instead of Death Certificates.Imagine would could happen if you stayed out of the gun range and stayed in studio?

      I caught myself singing the chorus, “take You out your glory” because the song is fire and you know it.

       Forgive me for showing love for  this song. I am just real enough to admit I love the song and that even with a person like Lil Jay that can only envision, survival and that is it, I  can visualize better. Drugs, and fast living can rip apart that talent. Lil Jay you are older, DON’T Take them boys out they glory, take the younger to the library and the museum. They don’t have to cry in silence while they say good-bye to K.I., Tooka,or Lil JoJo. Look at how you live and let those babies have a chance.

 

         I am talking to Chiraquian, and violence and dissing is the  way.   I have wrote many articles on some of your family members. I don’t want anyone to take you out your glory, but you have talent.I just hope you live long enough to watch your child get a diploma. As of now, I know you can’t think that far….

 
  EVERYTHING NEEDS TO STAY ON WAX, BUT THIS SONG IS FIRE! I WANT YOU TO LIVE!

NSFW: ToTaL Slaughter: Daylyt IS The G.G.Alin Of Battle Rap…***messymandella***

Tough Love Time for Daylyt PART 2: Sponsored By ***messymandella***

 

Now let us as a family discuss, Daylyt’s almost third round and his nervous breakdown.

Daylyt this is G.G.Alin

I am not going to show footage of his performances,and DON'T look if you have a weak stomach. EVERYTHING QUill is doing is a revisited performance from the original nut case, and DHEC Violation G.G. Allin. Shock value will always overshadow his music.

I have never in my life seen a mess like that on Total Slaughter. It was foolery and an abomination of sorts.

What in the Quill is wrong with you?

For the love of Prune Juice, could you please just admit that you don’t write third rounds?

Yep, the gimmick is done, you have done everything in your third rounds except rap…

We don’t know what is wrong, but we know all systems ARE STILL NOT A GO.

Some people watch Daylyt’s battles just for the antics, he has barz when he ain’t auditioning for Saturday Night Live…

“The audience doesn’t know if Daylyt will rap, reenact the Matrix, wear afro wigs, pretend to be in “Thriller” or bring a Loaded Lux Impersonator on stage, or just get naked AGAIN…”

Daylyt, was on the stage dressed in a red Burlap Super Hero OutFit with pleather trousers pockets,and knee pads.Yes, Daylyt had on Burlap pants that he swagger jacked from Florida Evans,on Good Times. The weather report stated it was HAWT outside.

He stripped because he was on, BUT boiling like butter in that hot ass Super Hero 1972 pants, and cape.

 
He had a piece of paper,his pill bottles and sadly, crap on the stage.

Just a damn shame to embarrass the culture with that malicious and nastiness in front of the world.

You have a beautiful wife, “Mafjfuhftoothbrushauh” whatever her name is but, she is crazy as hell, if she kisses you!

No one wants to witness bathroom antics on their stage.

Nobody paid their trap money to watch that Activia fueled third round.

This can’t be just because of ONE bottle of medicine you missed. If this is what happens when you forget your medicine, you need a home nurse, and a social worker.

You could get a check!

 
Was it the red pill, was it blue pill? Was it Ny -Quill?

Why in the Geritol Exlax Hell do you always give the world confusion, phuckery and Compton Shenanigans?

Every battle is a damn skit, and irrelevant props and unnecessary theatrics involving your anatomy, that just waste time and now bathroom antics?

Do you want to Battle or work at the zoo, never mind,  they don’t have a doggy park to accommodate your needs…

Why is it, that you have mountains of deranged lunacy in each battle, and no barz left in the third round?

 T-Rex won and I can’t wait until he delivers that baby, his belly is sitting low.

Any day now…

 Daylyt you will end up with E coli, The West Nile Virus, Salmonella, or Dysentery if you don’t stop this shamanistic foolery.
 
Why in the G.G. Allin hell would you do THAT on stage?

Rick Ross Gets Chased Out Of Detroit By The Mayor Of De-trot(Trick Trick)***messymandella***

 
Chicken Wings dipped in Caramel, and 72 hot dogs, were left in the city of Detroit, thanks to Mayor Trick-Trick.

If you watched Calicoe and the Arsonal battle fast forward to 18:22, Trick Trick makes his presence known.
 
Yes, “The Hunger Games.”took place in Detroit and Rick Ross got his Forrest Gump on…

Apparently,the Big one didn’t cut the check for protection,and Trick Trick needs his money.
 
You can’t mess with Trick-Trick he will always have his respect in Detroit and The Maybach Boss found that out, the hard way.

As long as Rick Ross making that money,he will ALWAYS have enemies and food recipes.
 

He lost weight recently and had a new lease on life, but he did not understand the “No Fly Zone.”
 
You should have just reimbursed the man. I hope those concert promoters and ticket prices and get their money back. Mayor Trick Trick didn’t realize that when he chased Officer Ricky out of municipality, he simultaneously robbed his entire town out of thousands, maybe millions of dollars, ratchet weaves, and baby sitter money.

 
As for the incensed concert goers that spent money to see Rick Ross, they were told Rick wasn’t going to perform, may never come back to Detroit again! Rick hauled ass…

 

The morals of this story, Don’t take on a gangster’s name while he is incarcerated, when you helped guard it.

 

Don’t show up in Detroit without permission from Detroit’s Trick- Trick.

I imagined the scene of Rick Ross running away near the Detroit River, similar to his own video.

LL Cool J ***messymandella***Around The Way Girl!

        Women we have a problem admitting our ages. Beauty gets better with age, ask Nia Long and Stacey Dash, and Angela Bassett. These women defy age, and prove that age is a state of mind. So if you don’t want to admit your age, let’s just nod if you remember wearing one strap down on your denim suspenders. Do you remember when men wore vest as shirts and baseball hats backwards? How many recall the “Mood Lipstick?” That was a scam because the lipstick was purple on everybody! Can you remember wearing the big earrings with the do it yourself bang and gelling up that baby hair? What about the leather vest and shorts that were “hawt” in the Summer? Camay soap was cool, and some girls wanted to use it  because of this song. I myself, was very young, but I still remember.  Well, if you do get a little nostalgic that is understandable. Think about the practiced dance routines, that you spent hours perfecting with your dance partner here is the video for you.

          This video recorded on October 7,1990 is a reminder of the earliest video cinematography we utilized and how that has grown in the later years. Check out the cheesy backdrop. History and Hip Hop will always be intertwined. LL Cool J is never mentioned as one of the best rappers of all time. The Top 10 list usually list people after 1995. Well, LL Cool J is one of the best and his Kango Hat will always be a part of Hip Hop Fashion, and his trademark. Rap music evolves, and  early fashions of the 90′s and the atmosphere have changed.  Hip- Hop before we were called bitches and hoes. Got to love it!
