Elizaveta Is A Dreamer***messymandella***


 
Елизавета исполняет свою песню Мечтатель с оркестром, как гостья на концерте Би2 в Минске.

 Maybe up top is the same as below, maybe?
Elizaveta performs her song Dreamer with symphony orchestra, as a guest vocalist at the Bi2 extravaganza in Minsk, Belarus (Minsk Arena).

 

I have no idea what that translation means!

 

 It could be directions to a treasure chest of gold in Russia?

 

It could be a recipe for Solyanka (soup), or a recipe for a Pelmeni (dumplings) maybe?

 

It could also be a Google Map request for the Kentucky Fried Chicken  in Moscow?

 

Don’t ask me, just enjoy the song…

What Will Be Your Legacy? (Pete Rock & CL Smooth)***messymandella***

They Reminisce Over You

 

“We all going to die, who gonna leave the legacy?”

Who’s going to be remembered the biggest? “

“Who gonna leave the energy out here”-MAX B Quotables

If you create classics,  they stay classics. We tend to forget old school hip hop but the art form should garner more respect.

The new artist  should learn from Pioneer Artist, to cultivate their craft.

We have some artist that make a mockery out of Hip Hop, just to fill their pockets.

Hell, with this  economy people need to eat even if it means keeping it simple.

The simple songs are catchy, but you are not going to remember them in 15 years.

The culture has a few that have the knowledge, love that intelligent narrative rap gifted to the world to cherish.

Some classics are from people who career ended, while some were in Pampers.

Listen to what you missed!

Listen to unification, women being respected, and cautionary tales.

In Hip Hop, the are the Dela Soul collectives, and Flavor Unit  remain obscure.

Even with countless hip hop approval,   BET ignored them for what would sale.

Rappers with an uplifting message were  given minuscule play on BET and other Hip Hop Outlets.

Even if is deemed more lucrative than Sir Mix Alot, real classics have a message.

Now, Chants and chorus have taken over the MC‘s lyrical skill.

 

deaths in chiraq- just the rappers…***messymandella***this message is ONLY for the young that still have a chance


You understand that citizens in Chiraq are in desperation for a soul-searching purpose and national support in the killing fields caused by the youth. The adults are prisoners of their own homes and the roles are reversed in a desolate life of deference. Conformity is the easiest manipulator of this violence and drilling movement. Again, Chicago, is not an isolated city, that should be blamed for all the deaths of upcoming rappers. We know “men lie, women lie, but numbers don’t lie.” Hopefully, watching their music at your leisure, and looking into your hearts could spare the life of one, little boy or girl.

Hip Hop has not always had a history of gang violence, but as a culture we are loosing so many young men in regards to statements made in a studio. Sadly, before these hip hop hopefuls seldom make history, but they always make an obituary.
We also are surprisingly under the impression that the war in this sate will just go away, if we focus on other issues.

NO,

We are loosing numerous young men and women in babies, and they will never get media attention because a white man didn’t pull the trigger!

The deaths in Chiraq are in tune with any other war and genocide. What about the innocent people who lose their babies to stray bullets? Rent a gymnasium, bring all your guns and bullets there and settle your beefs there. Stop ending lives of people who are actually want to uplift their people and not destroy them. Some parents are unable there for their children. Some parents are in factories and restaurants 9-5 and dedicated to working extra hours to build a promising life.
Why should their children feel obligated to choose a gang just to survive?

Gangs and their Tyshawn Lee, and that baby has pictures in his little school uniform and book bag. If you could still pick up a gun in Chiraq after that baby’s life, you are inhumane and have numbed yourself of human decency. Yes, you need those guns to survive, but this is a mental war.

You are surviving in the cesspool that you created, and the elders around you have no doubt demonstrated.
I look around where I am living, but know that the same gang violence is 15 miles away and purposely avoid those areas.

Why should I have to avoid places with people who have the same ethical background and color of skin of me? If you are not a violent person, you are afraid that you will encounter violence in certain clubs, bars and neighborhoods.

What if you only have that place in Chiraq? Parents have a extremely difficult time watching their children or even planning for the future.
Activist are murdered for trying to helping their community. It is easier to stand back and observe the destruction of the culture, but harder to speak up.

I love my people of all races, but some wealthy and terrified individuals will assume that all black women only want baby daddy’s but will raise families from the government but still keep getting pregnant by the same dead beat. I didn’t grow up like that, I watched my friends being raised by their aunts and grandmother’s because some parents could not provide.

ALL OF US ARE NOT LIKE THAT!

ALL OF US ARE NOT CARRYING A GUN EVERY WEEKEND JUST IN CASE…

Those damn stereotypes, will always follow people of color if we increase that image in society. The violence increases and the stereotypes gain a larger audience, and segregates demographics, due to false impressions and the actions of a few.

I pray and cry for our youth to understand that songs don’t have to be examples on how to live. I listen to a song, and don’t live the songs, but I love hip hop.

The youth understand that conscious rappers do not garner airplay. The gang culture has swept into hip hop, but it was never supposed to be intertwined. We had songs that dealt with the betterment of our children. We have forgotten, that hip hop in the 1980’s and 1990’s embraced love. NWA came along and a few others and we assumed the worse we treated our people, the better the rapper and bigger the sales.

Now, what do we have? Our views and misrepresentations of our people are integral in this list.
In Chiraq, We have a list of rappers in one area, that never even made it to the radio or the age of legal consent. Watching something so beautiful turn into something used to end lives, I wonder do these rappers even appreciate hip hop?
Do they understand, dropping bodies will not make you “real” but it will make you “real dead?”

The list of 2015 dead Chiraquians will most definitely be just as saddening. Most people have never heard of these people. If you visit YouTube to watch their videos, you will be sickened by their talent and promise that never had a chance to flourish.
Why kill each other below that is not the only way to get money in the industry? That doesn’t make you a rapper. Adele, Oprah and Beyoncé aren’t killing people to garner fans or become millionaires, there are other ways to become successful. Killing makes you a self-hating person.
You will not find more than 20 recent videos in mainstream that don’t brag about gang affiliation. We are still mentally enslaved and it is easier to ignore the truth. I can separate the truth and not fall in the trap, but the people in this video (above) never had a chance to separate the gimmick from the art form.

Will you?
