Kicking Gothic Futuristics With Ramellzee + DJ Grand Master Flash ***messymandella*** #HappyBirthdayHiphop

      Ramellzee was the “Letter Eraser” that decided to reconstruct his own language and cultural adaptation to every day words. He cultivated  his  own alphabetic by erasing the letters and sounds that we were accustomed to and creating his own due to his artistic ability and interest in an underground movement that began with groups of inner city youths expressing themselves.  This is the earliest footage I could locate with an audible sound due to the lack of studio equipment and restoration. Hip Hop at the preliminary styles may come across elementary for some but no one would meet up on the block to murder each other,  solely based on the color of their shirt. Music should breed life into our communities but not terrify  the people who reside in these communities.  Music should never endanger the welfare of our children.
This nostalgic moment in history ushered the era of Self  – love and knowledge of your historical beginnings.  Art and Hip Hop will eternally linked thanks to the innovators  that  remain determined to bring brotherhood and strength and respect for women back in the forefront the Hip-Hop Movement. This is the birth of the mass copied, and always imitated Style that came into the minds of young men, that needed a way to express themselves. At times they were homeless and loners or outsiders chasing their way through dreams that others told them would never be a reality. It is OUR lifestyle, promote your love not your money! An artist knows they have to pay the bills, but you never give up your love for the culture, self-expression, and unification that has now swept the nations.

When they lose interest in your gifts and your dreams… Promote you!

Hip Hop began by simply throwing beats together,but then it was social and not violently killing people,until Crack swept the nation.
Who knew that what this moment would be the industry beginner? The rebellion and escapism fueled a historic truth. This is the earliest that I could locate anywhere until I found this, 1978!

Ramallzee, Jean Michel Basquiat, Toxic 1, and C-1!

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?

 

The Tragic And Short Life Of Lil Snupe, Lil Phat And Lil JoJo***messymandella***

Let me start by saying, I never had the chance to meet Lil Snupe, Lil Phat, or Lil JoJo or speak to either one of these teenagers while they were alive. As a nerd, and Artistic Being, I feel pain for some desolate souls. I also know someone has to tell their story.
Lil Jojo
Lil Phat
Lil Snupe died too soon, and they closed their eyes because of nonsense. The last thing they heard were bullets in their young bodies. All three knew they weren’t college bound. Music was their life, but we all know that when you are doing your damndest to make your dreams come true, someone wants to shoot you down. In all three cases young men wanted to live life and provide for their families.These men knew they would never enter Yale or Harvard. These young men did not expect to send their resumes to Fortune 500 Companies.

Three Young Kings Who Got Their Heads…

See their tiny hearts, and limited resources transformed them into an image they felt chose them. They wanted to live be , but merged in that wrong lane, by imitating the older men around them. Without too many other observations and social development skills, where they doomed from the start? No, because Meek Mill made it out, and he is no angel, but he has provided for his family and given money to charities. It is possible to live the life and not end up in a casket, or in “The Belly Of The Beast.” Watch these young men’s as their ambitions and drive push them to the limelight. Watch them in their proud moments being able to provide for their loved ones.Watch as they feel that self accomplishment.

Watch their cockiness, and talent being poisoned by jealousy, and the “Crabs- In- A Barrel” Syndrome.

Then look around you and wonder how many Lil JoJo’s will be in buried in their favorite diamond studs and fitted hats. I want you to think about Lil Phat’s Baby Mama having to raise another child without a father, and what can those expensive clothes do for him now? Remember Lil Snoop when he had that proud look on his face when Meek Mill gave him that chance to leave the streets. How many have to leave us, before we leave the beef on wax.
The Reason I love URLTV and other Battle Rap Arenas, is because that day we are hearing gun talk and bravado, but during that moment when we are all watching nobody is loosing their lives. Hip-Hop has kept them from being on that block..  Battle Rap creates an environment to keep men and women all different races and ages power-driven and determined to make history.They tell the heartbreaking stories, people in Utah might never ever envision. Everyone has a story. just by describing the heart ache and tragedies in urban cities, made Donald Goines a critically acclaimed writer. I have every book, I suggest you read those books too.

Take the time to hear about these young men and their 15 minutes of Fame…

The welfare of your people has to mean something to you, evaluate your life if it means nothing to you.
