600’s LA Capone’s Mom Reflects On His Short Life***messymandella***We Gotta Keep Them Alive…***messymandella***

Poor Baby! He was programmed to rep “600” and that actually will be his claim to fame, as the churches are packed with mourners, men and women, and gangs. They will be taking pictures while they are wearing his t-shirts.  They are going to cry, rep and sing to the high heavens. Yes, they are going to leave the church, which at a gang funeral is also a war zone…
      Be prepared, more gang mayhem and casket preparation is right around the corner. The gang members from “600” hopefully the leader of “600” will make sure that his family eats for the rest of their lives!

Yeah, Right as soon as that casket drops it will be “back to trapping” and destroying the neighborhood.

Every time a gang member succumbs to violence, it just breaks the backs of everyone that risk their lives to keep us alive during the Civil Rights Movements.


Yes, this man could have made it to the top of the rap  game, but so could have Lil Snupe, Lil JoJo, and rapper Lil Fat.

Sadly, It it highly unlikely that everyone at that funeral will be alive, this time next year.
Sometimes it feels like I am suffocating around ignorance.  What is wrong with our people?

Why are we preparing children to only leave a small ill-gotten legacy?

Most of these men are raised by single moms that have to work, because the dad is either incarcerated,  or just doesn’t give a damn.

      It is not LA’ Capone’s fault that he will be a “Could he have made it?” rapper added to the roster. He just like other youth that perpetuate and mimic the glamorization of Gangs. No one will speak up against the violence; that is a part of the Hip Hop Movement.
Davey D, a prolific blogger utilized his truth and love for his people to decrease violence in Hip- Hop. He catered to articles similar to Jean Grae, Bahamadia, and De La Soul. These artist have been pushed off the charts to d-listed status.
God, it is more convenient, yes a hell of a lot easier to just sweep the violence under the rug, if you can get a hip hop deal. Approximately every five gang affiliated rappers give you all their violent capabilities. In any 3 minute song, you will be introduced to their gang location, set information, gang sign, and the proud admiration for becoming a gang member. What the hell are you proud of anyway? I understand that once you are in, you have to die or relocate to leave. I also understand that when that light bill due and mom needs food on that table, you men were forced to be a son and husband figure, before your time. Now as you evolved and witnessed so much death, what advice would you  give your grandchild that decided he wanted “in the life?”

         I  apologize for LA’ Capone not having a lucrative rap career, but Hip Hop and gangs are now one in the same largely through media perception, and our thriving community. Most of your favorite rappers are in gangs. It is a request that should be discussed before it is too late. Gangs are not disappearing but why not have an age recruitment policy? Why can’t we promise their moms that their sons will make it to puberty? Please, I beg of all gang affiliates, please leave the children out of harm’s way. Why not wait until they are at least 17? The gangs are too powerful to fight at this point, but leave children out of the equation. I beg for our urban communities as a whole, keep our kids safe!

Sleep In Peace! You never had a chance to make it out of the ghetto and crime. People can not help were they reside, but you can strive to be better. These neighborhoods are make shift prisons for children and the elderly.These people  are too scared that “BDK” may have a beef, and if  they speak up they will  loose their life to stray bullets full of hatred and racial stereotypes. He was a still a baby. He didn’t get a chance to leave his neighborhood, or feed his family LEGALLY. I hope his family finds peace. I hope that we get past this genocide one day…A damn Shame. Martin Luther King Jr, and Malcom X died for this? Typing through tears…

You will be lied to and trashed behind your back by close minded individuals that can’t envision an eclectic and unified world.

They will  resent you for competing and striving for more in this life. You will encounter smiles behind a closed door and insults when you are not around.

I speak from experience and want you to realize that if you are being dragged, look at who is doing the dragging.

You must not let jealousy and back biting  omit your personal truth, and freedom and rights to be happy. Express your opinions and dont give up your fight for equality.

Look at the people that are causing defamation and just being pure two faced and never let them become victorious.

You look at their close minded lives and watch how scared they are of embracing truth, expression and art. Even with betrayal, you must stand strong and still YOU must rise.

Still I Rise-Maya Angelou

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may tread me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own back yard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.

“hip-hop in its golden age“,[10] Spin‘s editor-in-chief Sia Michel says, “there were so many important, groundbreaking albums coming out right about that time”,[10] and
 
MTV‘s Sway Calloway “The thing that made that era so great is that nothing was contrived. Everything was still being discovered and everything was still innovative and new”.[11]

 

Writer William Jelani Cobb says “what made the era they inaugurated worthy of the term golden was the sheer number of stylistic innovations that came into existence… in these golden years, a critical mass of mic prodigies were literally creating themselves and their art form at the same time”.[12]
