The WILD STYLE Of Lee George Quinones***messymandella***

What others may label as trash, can become your treasure.

What one considers treasure may become your worst enemy.

Graffiti  helped pave the way for freedom of expression for artist who didn’t have enough financial backing or resources to gain artitic direction they transformed everything  into art.

Do I want some to paint on the side of my condo?

HELL NO!

However, every time I hear a train I anticipate the free art show.

I toast to those that have entertainment me at the train tracks.

  I admire those who opened the eyes for the people, that would get ignored if no one would have explored,and taken a chance.

It is art, just like Hip-Hop that explores our love for the people,and frustrations.

I disagree when Nas said, Hip Hop is dead, it is the audiences get older and the  barz are low and harder to detect.

Graffiti and art in the exposed the world to urban art in the 1970’s and 1980’s.`


 

 

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.

Speak Up Against Domestic Abuse!***messymandella***NSFW – We Love You Michel’le

“Why would he do it?”
“Did I deserve it?”
“Can it really change?”
“Maybe, I should stop bothering him?”
“I am stressing him out, I should have let him talk.”
“She only hits me when I interrupt her.”
“I can’t hit her back, no matter what.”
“She embarrassed me, so I punched her.”

After spending the night with a friend at the age of 14 and watching her dad beat up her mom, throw her in an ant bed, kick her in the face, bloody her nose,  threaten to kill himself If we called the cops, I have NO TOLERANCE! She kept apologizing to me, and she was the victim!

Children’s lives change once they witness domestic abuse.

Thanks Gotti, for telling this story.

This illustrates the story of the child watching this injustice.
