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.


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.



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?


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…


Beautiful Black Baby Boy!

Martin Luther King Jr. Died On April 4th, 1968 In Memphis, Tennessee! ***messymandella***I HAVE A DREAM

Martin Luther King Jr. held on to the virtues of patience and “turning the other cheek” when his enemies wanted him to cease his marching and liberation for all people. In 1955 Montgomery residents of color endured mistreatment and physical abuse but stayed obedient to law enforcement to risk lynching or other arrest in a bias system. Martin Luther King created the blue print for the “Montgomery Bus Boycott” in the year of 1955 in which feminist Rosa Parks legacy and life’s work is forever linked to in our history books and Civil Rights Movement history.

MLK,the activist that instilled the legend of freedom in us still reside in our lives and family plans,if we just listen. I assume have to be shaking their heads in disgust. These people marched. were bitten by dogs, sprayed with hot fire hydrants, falsely arrested, and had crosses routinely burnt on their yard, but they didn’t stop fighting for us!

 I have told you guys  this story before, but here we go again. My great, great Grandfather Ned was a mulatto and he was a farmer who acquired land and his own garden to have the deed for a make a living off his hard work and vegetables he produced. The Klu Klux Klan in South Carolina showed up on his land and burned a cross right in his garden. They came “looking for him.” My Granddaddy had to hide in a barrel of sweet potatoes that entire night that his wife, my grandmother covered him up in so her husband,my grandaddy would not get lynched.

On October 14, 1964, King received the Nobel Peace Prize for fighting for inequality and resisting the urge These families and ‘s blood is on are hands if we are killing each other and disrespecting his life by turning our streets into a death trap for young adults and innocent children.
A rapper,Doe B, whom recently succumbed to gun shots lost his life recently in Alabama but the news also reported 48 other gun related deaths in just that area alone the same years. King marched to give us a chance to educate and be a part of history and the rebuilding of America. King died protecting our rights and to creating unity among all races and sexes.

With all the historical landmarks that Martin Luther King traveled by pounding the pavement, in and in the end dying for us.

Do you think he would be proud that we are killing each other?
Can you envision King being ecstatic that his legacy has accomplished and celebrated even though the racist in this case, has the exact color of skin as the intended victim?
Instead of marching forward we have taken ten steps back.

I love my music and movies that have obscene or derogatory language.

       I would be lying If I said I didn’t,and you consistent readers know I feel horrible about how Bobby Shmurda was treated by Epic Record.

It appears some of us don’t understand we can move mountains and live our life and still love our art from struggle from pain and oppression.We are suppose to grow from it, not repeat it!

We have to imagine the strength MLK had also understand and remember when Malcolm X was murdered he changed his militant views and embraced people of all races.

He lived for us to live as respectful human beings not savages to make a difference, and some of us don’t remember or acknowledge the fact he was murdered TODAY!

Are WE better?

Bobby Shmurda is a product of his environment, now when he has a chance to reunite with his family on the outside. Bobby will have the chance to make that difference.

If he decides to stay in the negative light and stereotypes of our men, he has no one to blame but himself. He deserves a chance, and prayers. We don’t know everything, and you don’t give up on our men unless they don’t learn from their  15th incarceration!




        If we don’t live by the doctrine of betterment for our livelihood and families, King was assasignated for no reason and we are spitting on his legacy.

        My goal is to live as if Martin Luther King Jr. was looking over my shoulder,and I am sure he would tap me on my shoulder because of my temper.

I still strive to make a difference and make him proud!

Right now as I look around Chicago, Detroit, and other neighborhoods we have ruined with gang violence I am 100% ashamed and I know we have failed his legacy.

The truth is we spit on his death every time we put that colored bandana in our back pocket, and take the safety off the gun, to murder someone who would have marched beside us, if Martin Luther King Jr. had lived.

Most read today! someone help bring closure for william “fernando” barnes aka dJ nando!***messymandella***

Rapper DJ Nando, a popular Strip Club DJ, was shot execution style outside of his dwelling. Some coward pulled the trigger from behind, and released the bullet into the back of his head, without any afterthought.We have lost faith in humanity and in each other and respect for our people. Whomever ended William Fernando Barnes life doesn’t know they are committing the exact vicious hatred as the Klu,Klux Klan. One less minority man breathing, or one that will end behind bars for one action that could have been avoided with self-control and communication.
        DJ Nando only spent 38 Years on this earth. That is a tragedy, but he lived longer that Lil Snupe, Lil JoJo, and Lil Phat also potentially celebrities cut down before their career catapulted into mainstream!
  Once again, Any coward that shoots you in the back of the head is not man enough to even confront you and has no regard for human life. While DJ Nando was leaving his show at approximately 3:00 A.M his life was stolen without any regard. No fight or argument took place, just him walking and a bullet to the back of his head.
        Now when women go to bed at night they don’t worry if a man is cheating, they are frightened when they don’t receive  that text or tweet just to make sure that he is still breathing. Real Talk!
     We have created our own jungle and the worms have no loyalty or ability to understand why these incidents should not happen.
         According to all accounts, DJ Nando appeared to have the qualities of a positive person that enjoyed his work as a DJ, since he has been a part of the DJ scene for at least 12 years. Rapper DJ Nando already solidified his place in the DJ world, but that wasn’t enough! He wanted other DJ’s to receive national recognition in the Art and gain prominence in  his community!
         This initiative and determination birthed the movement of him and his peers as a DJ collective the “Coalition DJ’s.” If a man reached his pentacle of success but would still mentor other DJ’s that in itself gives the impression of a humble, free-hearted soul.
      This blood bath and Roster of men in the Urban scene is increasing at a steady rate. The families of the departed are  left wondering, “What could have been?” This killing is a harmful deterioration for our community. These are   the incidents that  FOX News feeds into and biasly enjoy reporting.  Our accomplishments are overshadowed by Animal-like instincts of a few with no sense of respect.
          I can’t type fast enough to send my condolences for all of our street soldiers, that are fighting a make belief self-propelled war. This war is  just reverse racism with the ending plan of the extinction of the minority man. Women are having to get their children dressed to see daddy through the glass window, or before the casket door closes.

I did not ever meet this DJ, and sadly never will…
      I love our men and if no one else cares enough in the media to demonstrate their importance. I will remember and announce their accolades and  contributions in life!
I pray for his family and friends.
Everyone has a story, and  I  believe he was more than just a random shooting story in the news.
Someone is in agony and distress right now over the end of DJ NAndo’s life and I am hugging them in spirit!
 I pray for justice and vindication in this  life for the victim. It is only January 14th, 2014 and Doe B, Mazarati Fox, and DJ Nando are no longer alive.
Sorry for the lost to anyone that knew William, but the News Outlets will give an emotionless account of the events of that night. To some in the news world he was just another minority shot and murdered.
He deserves better than that, and his life meant something to someone.
Life is so precious, and fleeting especially for a coward that can’t even look a man in his eyes before he ends his unfinished life.
Praying for an ending to this foolishness!
Love Through Tears
***messymandella***was your family member, wouldn’t you demand justice? In our community, once the news story has died, so is the interest and the prioritiy is lessened by the month, and we cry and mourn but after out bereavement, we find another issue to invest in a a new cause to focus on and solve,and we forget.
           We also  get invested in another  topic to bring awareness to  and also utilize for out own self-advancement .
           The news doesn’t allot valuable time on Cold Cases. Someone in our county  has insight on his untimely demise. 
          He is six feet deep, and someone  decided to steal his life. 
     He can’t fight for himself. We must let them know you can’t just murder your brothers and sisters and not expect karma and physical justice. Don’t give up on your loved ones because the  bias media forgot about them, just pretend it was your cousin and he was shot in his head, by a coward after returning home. You would want justice!
           Justice would not only be required, it would be only stipulation let’s make it mandatory, so the coward can receive their own justice and punishment.



Busta- Juvenile “Makein’ It Clap In Nolia!” ***messymandella***



Shyheim-On And On ***messymandella***

The drug epidemic broke us completely down, and even if everyone stopped slinging crack now the damage has caused prisons to be flooded, and caskets to be lowered.

Dreams were deterred and the families lost daddy, and the family structure to the game.

Now, we can attempt to bring our communities back, but the force and the poison tested on us will not go away, and once again it was not administered by us,but we suffer.

Who wanted to ruin our society? 

In 1984 Government officials could not segregate us legally.

They used the crack epidemic to  segregate us chemically and mentally,and their mission was a success.

Can the black families comprehend that it is not weak to be home with their  babies.

I guess it us easier said than done. In our culture people can be together for 8 years with no wedding in site. Meaning they are unconsiously not committed to their loved one.

When it is so easy to walk away, our children receive less. Don’t stay JUST BECAUSE OF THE CHILDREN. However,If you look into our history after the Crack Epidemic moms and dad’s were pitted against each other.

In some instances the boyfriend supplied the girlfriend or wife with the crack.

Our sons took note and realized that any reason to leave, is better than any reason to stay.

The fathers that sacrificed for their seeds, are raising grateful children that admire their effort and unconditional love.

Check out the statistics on our men,and how many are currently incarcerated that never had fathers in their life.

Some are currently in prison with their fathers.I understand that some of these men want better when they are released, their felony records will not get them a salary  and a 401 K. The Crack Epidemic instrumented in the death of the black families.

That is another generation of boys watching and learning from the downfall of the 80’s and they are being borned 5 years later.  We marched in the 60’s and 70’s and our  people had a sense of pride.

We must bring unity and respect back to our  culture.

It is embarrassing when men and women with no means of support have 13 children that they can not take care of, and the babies are loosing in the progress.

Dad and mom need to stand together and motivate our children to  be better. This video is from 1994, and look around and tell me how far we have truly come?
