We adhere to street codes and live and ride for our city. When you are  a “Street Star” you will remain a whisper, a legend and cautionary tale.  Karlton Hines is now a Legend but he is not living.  Talent, looks, and money  were his traits that caught the stares and jealousy from others. That will also his downfall. Karlton,a Basketball Star that family and friends revered and perceived as a Hero knew he was a leader and a born legend.  We all have a chance to get out of the hood! However, urban men are told the only practices that will gain them wealth are pimping, drug dealing or Sports. No one even attempts anything else without doubt. We are programmed to believe that these are the only components to accomplish hood wealth. We don’t realize that money is from other hands that know we will eventually destroy our neighborhoods forever.  Someone needs our men dead, and we are helping them achieve this feat, every day.Karlton Hines played Basketball, and he knew he had the fame and admiration of everyone. He was raised in a single family neighborhood.
Karlton  could be seen in PS1 Park playing at 3:00 AM.His coaches wouldn’t push his studies, because he benefited them. Game  was already in front of  him. He  was under the impression that his grades were second to his ability for the game. Karlton had over 30 recruiters at a time offering him scholarships. That power and understanding of game is that the people that are left behind, sometimes want your impending failure. Karlton  quit because of a disciplinary problem. He also lied about his address to play at the school of his choice. He was caught after hours breaking the rules, and  instead of dealing with repercussions he left school. He quit school 4 months before graduating with his High school diploma Of course, he was attractive and had charisma that would always propel him to another level. Karlton won MVP when he was only 13 and 14. Older children were intimidated by him,because of his game with ladies, and with the courts. Karlton(nicknamed “C”)did not bite his tongue on the court. He had physical and mental strength that other ballers envied at a young age. Karlton was the baby,but garnered more attention than his older brothers, and street soldiers in the game! Karlton could have made millions legally, but he couldn’t leave the hood values and backwards mentallity. His brothers were not blessed to receive Karltons gift of street intelligence,that would later be his curse. He was 6’5  and athletic, cocky and was given every persons admiration, and full attention.

He loved the “Stage!” Yes, the hood has its on stage and community that is the mecca of the dealers,players, and goldiggers. They know how to get chose, and be seen. Once you get chose to be a part of “The Life” you are too afraid to leave what you know to be morally incorrect.

  In the hood it only takes a “New York Minute” to change your entire life. Karlton and his friend were walking from the store. They were in an  altercation with a neighborhood friend “Tweedy” and  “Tweedy” pulled out a knife. Karlton defended himself with a bottle, it went across  the neck, of  “Tweedy”  and was pronounced dead at the hospital.  Karlton stayed on the run for 11 days. He was arrested but later set free, because it was ruled self defense. Karlton walks out a free man, but that one moment changed his entire life. He was damaged to recruiters,  and already entered the system and his life had a few limitations. He could no longer be  a Hood Celebrity  by the Basketball Game, so he the chose the other side of the game.

Karlton’s street soldiers  had him walking around with thousands  in his pockets. He could not forget his hood. “Duncan Hines” had that rush of adrenaline and that mental choice to be the Legend. He didn’t want basketball to  infiltrate his street credibility. He chose to leave his talent, and go for the blood money. Karlton decided to walk further into the pit of destruction. His looks and personality started to change. He also blamed Coach, old teachers, everyone  for  not having  his back, and he was too ashamed to go back to school, he went further in the  drug game!

PETER “PISTOL PETE” ROLLOCK

Pistol Pete and the Blood affiliated Sex, Money and Murder gang were the scourge of the Soundview section of the Bronx back in the day. In his teens and into his early twenties Pistol Pete acquired a reputation as a ruthless killer, who made millions in the drug game in the late 80’s and early 90’s. He was known as one of the most feared and powerful men in New York during the crack era, who could get people killed with his word alone. His influence and organization stretched south from the city’s five boroughs reaching out and touching states all across the eastern seaboard. Pistol Pete was one of Soundview’s Original Gangsters, setting the bar high for his hood and the Northeast Bronx. – Gorilla Convict http://www.gorillaconvict.com/peter-pistol-pete-rollock-2/

       One thing some don’t understand about “The Game” is that you always are competing.  You only live once, but someone is always ready to shoot you, and make an example of you, and tarnish your legacy. What you build is a charade of evil and an “Execution chamber” This game will never have a winner.  Karlton  Hines found that out the hard way,  with his friend Carlos.  Pistol Pete who is know serving Life stole Karlton’s chance at a new life.  karlton Hines was 25 years old when he died. He was found with $5000.00 in his pockets.  It’s a game that we will not win. No matter how many times we live it and remember it,we hope it will be diffrent. Karlton Hines died on April 8th , 1994 and that money in his pocket could not keep him breathing, so what did it give him?

We are getting caught up in these movies, and images, and giving props to men behind a cell who can’t even go outside when they want, but we idolize them. We even study where they went wrong, so we won’t make that mistake. No one wins the game, and it is a trap.  Karlton Hines is in a casket  and Pistol Pete is in a a cot on a box with stories and commissary.  We are destroying our own existence and making single moms raise the babies without knowledge on how to make a man survive. Karlton Hines chose the wrong game to gain fame. Even though we know, no one wins in the game but everyone thinks they will be different…

chiraq life Is dangerous and fleeting!***messymandella*** Lil Marc


 

We can’t neglect the violence because society encourages us to disregard certain group of individuals,and nothing is important enough benefits no one that he is no longer among the living.

He had a family and a “squad” that surely looked up to him for guidance.

I know he is in the same gang as Chief Keef!

Hell, he may have recruited him, but that doesn’t matter now…

I know that people will blend in to chaos and gangs.
r
It is simply easier to ignore the usual murder of our boys just to not shine light on the truth and realistic depreciation of our men and how behind bars and in their graves.These young men never can facilitate for their legal families and they mature into lost but easily influenced boys that will be dead or in prison or accessible to provide for their families
 

 
He is dead, and whoever took his life, will undoubtedly lose someone in their squad.

Chiraquian Rapper Fredo Santana will not live to celebrate 30 Years of age and The Migos will be a duet anytime soon,due to ignorant threats and people shooting an killing at their concerts.

When you have so many hood friends that are miserable, misguided, and manipulated by their hatred of self, it makes it easier to cause irrational and undeserving violence to others and tweet about it on Twitter.

In this generation, evil will always trump righteousness and self-preservation when it comes to killing our own.

We have a generation of young men that don’t want to be left out of any activities with their home boys,even if it murder. If his entire block is sporting that blue bandana out of their pocket, no one would risk not fitting in and being an individual. Libraries and lame and prison makes you a man,in the minds of the lost.

 They join and adapt and go to prison and others succumb to their demented and emotionless desires to make a better way, or be an individual. So the entire street decides that killing is a sport, no different from a video game. They are so removed from the rest of the world that ignorance is segregating them and crippling their future and it is based on the fictious war and who is up next to die?

Fredro Santana has created a niche for himself in his daily life of death warnings, and he will keep living in this world with a lackluster lyrics and that luciferin cross on his head, that child is the male Annabelle doll. Fredo Satan is in the same death trap community as Cheap Keith.

AGAIN,Why should you care, if you aren’t familiar with his music?

The media is comfortable not reporting every death in the Roseland community, but then again that would be a three hour news broadcast, every single night.. Sadly, when a black child murders another black child dies marches or protest, are not an option. If you think that I am exaggerating on the death toll and the evil in Chiraq, just read the statistics.

Look at one Chiraquian rapper shot on the street like an animal. I am showing this picture to educate the youth, this lost baby is in the gutter like he is trash and he wasn’t trash. He had the wrong mentality the wrong friends in the game of ignorance.

Where are their mothers and fathers?

Analyzing Robert Johnson (May 8, 1911 – August 16, 1938) : Is Your Soul For Sell? ***messymandella***

Excerpt From Stephen Davis “Hammer of the Gods.”

“In the delta of the Mississippi River, where Robert Johnson was born, they said that if an aspiring bluesmen waited by the side of a deserted crossroads in the dark of a moonless night, then the Devil himself might come and tune his guitar, sealing a pact for the bluesmen’s soul and guaranteeing a lifetime of easy money, women, and fame. They said that Robert Johnson must have waited by the crossroads and gotten his guitar fine-tuned.

Robert Johnson was a Mississippi blues singer and songwriter, who according to legend, sold his soul to Satan “at the crossroads” in exchange for his remarkable talent on the guitar.


 
Born and raised in Mississippi, Robert Johnson started playing blues guitar in the late 1920s. His wife and child died in childbirth around 1930 and he is said to have devoted himself to the guitar. Part of the crossroads story comes from a report that he dropped out of sight for a while in the early 1930s and returned a much-improved guitarist.

In 1936-37 he recorded at least 29 songs in Texas (San Antonio and Dallas), then returned to Mississippi to play and sing in clubs and bars. His mysterious death at the age of 27 added to the legend: He died in 1938, falling ill after playing a party and dying four days later.

At the stroke of midnight, he walked down to the windswept crossroads at the junction of Highways 61 and 49 in Clarksdale, Mississippi. Reciting an ancient incantation, he called upon the Devil to make his deal. In exchange for Johnson’s immortal soul, the devil tuned his guitar, thereby giving him the abilities which he so desired. From then on, the young bluesman played his instrument with an unearthly style, his fingers dancing over the strings. His voice moaned and wailed, expressing the deepest sorrows of a condemned sinner.

Whatever the reason, Johnson died at the young age of twenty-seven (The 27 Club with members Jim Morrison, and Janis Joplin)  Down in the Delta Blues music that has influenced guitar players like Muddy Waters, and his songs have been covered by several rock stars, including Eric Clapton and The Rolling Stones.
 In 1986 Robert Johnson was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. His songs include “Crossroad Blues,” “Me and the Devil Blues” and “Terraplane Blues.”

Because of the historical significance of “Cross Road Blues,” it was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1998.

Robert Johnson (May 8, 1911 – August 16, 1938)

Historians and musicians all over the world are still are intrigued

 

by the legend of Robert’s deal with the devil came due and as evidence gave the fact that they had seen him on all fours, howling at the moon the night he died……

 

Undisputed facts about Johnson’s life are few and far between. More often than not, his legend has obscured the few grains of truth that can be discerned. According to the myth, the young bluesman desperately longed for fame and fortune. “

 

What is encrypted in the power of fame?

 

Do musicians and other artist go against everything they we are taught to reach that pinnacle of success?

 

We are closer to the spiritual world, and we are closer than we can ever could imagine.

 

Would you risk your intuition and mystical inner strength to reach that Millionaire status, given a chose?

 

Did Robert Johnson make a pact with the Devil?

 

Historians claimed that Robert could not play but a few chords if any, on the guitar until he came back from the Cross Roads.

The eerie tale is of course, that when he came back to play he played better than anyone else, that saw him playing a week before, and could not understand why? Robert ONLY played with his back turned away from his audience….

 

Here is the footage, and now you know the legend!

Was this story a myth, or a true deal with the devil? Would you make that deal to gain riches and fame?

 

 

 

 

Ugly Heroes| Apollo Brown, Vebral Kent, Red Pill***messymandella***


 

 “An Ugly Hero is considered a myth. Growing up, the heroes we saw in cartoons and movies were perfectly chiseled, intelligent, and had senses none of us possess. An UGLY HERO is the everyday blue-collar individual that makes the world go ’round. These are the heroes that work hard all day, everyday to help ensure that the lives around them are taken care of, and do it all without recognition. They wear themselves into the ground and sacrifice vanity for family.”

 

Don’t ever sacrifice your passion for ART! When you give up on the world we lose knowledge and divine light,that could be pleasing and beneficial to the entertainment world. All writers, rappers, artist, and directors must compromise their pain, at times to bring the world their gift. You may be eating Ramen Noodles now, because that is all you can afford, but that struggle is inside of you!
        Don’t forget  your unique love for the spiritual and artistic vision  that everyone deserves to appreciate and emulate. Even if you are a waitress paying bills and feel like giving up, countless of others have been in your same predicament. Pay your bills, but still keep shining.
That struggle is what is keeping you motivated, and don’t let every day struggle omit your passion for life.
Sometimes we have to go through Hell, to get to Heaven.
