NYU I SALUTE YOU!

R.E.A.D.

Restore Education Among the Dominant and this is what HIP HOP CULTURE started out doing, being and producing until the enemy sniffed, scurried, hem and hawed around as a rodents to STRIP what we had, STEAL what we had, KILL what we had and DESTROY what we had.

SO WHEN I THOUGHT ABOUT THE 9 ELEMENTS OF HIP HOP, I BEGAN TO REFLECT ON ALL THAT IT ENCOMPASSES AND IT IS THE BLACKEST THING EVER.

HOW IRONIC, A WOMAN WHO CARRIES HER BABY WITHIN IS CONSIDERED FULL TERM.

WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT THE HEART OF THE HOOD WOULD BIRTH SOMETHING OF THIS MAGNITUDE?

HOW DARE ME, I KNOW WHO WE ARE, WHAT WE HAVE DONE AND THE MAJOR CONTRIBUTIONS WE HAVE MADE AND WELL, TRAVEL WITH ME…….

AS WE CELEBRATE NATIONAL WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH AND HIP HOP’S 50TH ANNIVERSARY, I WANT TO GIVE A SHOUT OUT TO SOMEONE I HAVE GROWN TO LOVE, APPRECIATE, ADMIRE AND CALL A MENTOR, DR. NYOTA UHUR.

AS I SIT AND REFLECT, I AM REMINDED OF THE WORDS OF BEVY SMITH WHERE SHE SAID, “IT GETS BETTER LATER.”

WE ARE WHERE WE ARE BECAUSE OUR COMPETITORS KNEW/KNOW WHO WE ARE, WHAT WE DID/DO, AND HOW WE GET DOWN BETTER THAN WE DO AND IT IS BECAUSE OF THE DEFUNDING AND DENIAL OF OUR HISTORY AND OUR AUTHENTIC CONTRIBUTIONS THAT ASSURES: OUR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE, BECAUSE MONEY LURED US AWAY FROM THE FOUNDATION, ROOT, TRUTH AND REASONS WHY.

NO MATTER THE GENERE: WE ADD FLAVA, HUE AND IT TURNS OUT AS A  HOUSEHOLD DELICACY.

HIP HOP IS NO DIFFERENT!

HIP HOP STARTED OUT AS A WAY FOR US TO EXPRESS OUR LIVED EXPERIENCES, IT EMPOWERED OUR FUTURE WITH MESSAGES OF HOPE, PRIDE, CIVILITY, ECONOMIC LITERACY, MORALITY, BLACK UNITY AND SELF AWARENESS OF WHICH HAVE ALWAYS NOT ONLY BEEN THE DEATH OF OUR ORIGINALITY BUT UNITY SEETHED INTO THIS CULTURAL TRANSFORMING GENERE AND NOW WE ARE DEMOTED, MURDEROUS, LACKING HOPE, VISION AND UNITY OF WHICH COMMUNITY IS A LONG FORGOTTEN (BY DESIGN AND INTENTIONALITY) CONCEPT.

HERE THINKING ABOUT SLOGANS SUCH AS: CUT FROM A DIFFERENT CLOTH, DIFFERENT BREED, IN A LEAGUE ALL OF THEIR OWN, ON AN ISLAND AND MUCH MORE THAT SAYS, WE HAVE NEVER HAD TO DUPLICATE BUT OTHERS HAVE ALWAYS HAD TO IMITATE.

IT IS YOUR INTELLECTUAL ABILITIES

IT IS YOUR CREATIVITY

IT IS YOUR FOR REAL FORWARD THINKING ATTITUDE

IT IS YOUR BEHAVIOR FOR THE PEOPLE

JUST AS ANYTHING ELSE WHEN IT COMES TO US, WE SLING MAGIC, WE CREATED GREATNESS, WE ARE INFLUENCERS, WE ARE ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING WE NEED AND DESIRED TO BE. OUR CREATIVITY, INGENUITY, BRILLIANCE, AND INTELLIGENCE PRODUCED THE HIP HOP MOGULS OF OLD.

HIP HOP AND THE BOOM BOX

HIP HOP AND THE BREAK DANCES

HIP HOP AND THE GET UP AND MOVE MUSIC EVEN IF YOU CAN’T DANCE

HIP HOP AND THE COMMUNAL MESSAGE

HIP HOP AND THE COLLABORATION

HIP HOP AND THE MESSAGE

HIP HOP AND THE CALL TO ACTION

HIP HOP AND ACCOUNTABILITY

HIP HOP AND THE COMPASS/BLUEPRINT

HIP HOP WAS LOVE, JOY, PEACE, UNITY, UPLIFTMENT, HOPE, VISION, AND CHARACTER BUILDING WITHIN OUR COMMUNITY AND IT WAS A POWERFUL MESSAGE TO THE FUTURE

HIP HOP BOTH EDUCATED AND MADE KNOWLEDGEABLE

HIP HOP!

HIP HOP ARTISTS DIDN’T HAVE LIMITED VOCABULARIES.

See also  INVEST IN OUR CHILDREN?

HIP HOP ARTISTS OF OLD DIDN’T HAVE LIMITED ROOMS TO GROW

HIP HOP ARTISTS OF OLD DIDN’T LACK THE INABILITY TO THINK CRITICALLY

HIP HOP ARTISTS OF OLD UNDERSTOOD THE IMPORTANCE OF THEIR LYRICS, MIC AND STAGE

HIP HOP ARTISTS OF OLD WERE GIVEN MUCH SPACE & EXPECTATIONS TO DO SO AND BE SO

HIP HOP ARTISTS OF OLD NOT ONLY SAVED YOUNG MEN FROM THE STREETS AND CHANGED THEIR LIVES BUT IT GAVE THEM THE STRENGTH TO FACE THE STREETS THROUGH DIFFERENT EYES

HIP HOP ARTISTS OF OLD REFUSED TO BE USED TO BE USED AS TOOLS TO: HURT, HARM, ENDANGER AND KILL OFF OUR PEOPLE.

HIP HOP WAS EVIDENCE THAT POVERTY IS LACK OF MONEY BUT NOT LACK OF BRILLIANCE, CREATIVITY, INGENUITY, WILL, DEVOTION, VISION, ASPIRATIONS, GIFTS, SKILLS, TALENTS, AND INTELLIGENCE.

SO WHEN WE WERE SINGING AND HEARING:

I BELIEVE THE CHILDREN ARE THE FUTURE

TOMORROW WILL BRING A BETTER A BETTER ME

YOUNG GIFTED AND BLACK

ONE LOVE

FIGHT THE POWER

STRAIGHT OUT OF COMPTON

TODAY IT APPEARS TO BE RAPIDLY BE USED AS A TOOL TO TAKE OUR LIVES, DIMINISH OUR LIVES, DEMOTE OUR LIVES, LOWER OUR STANDARDS, DIM OUR LIGHT, PROVIDE A FALSE NARRATIVE OF WHO WE ARE AS A PEOPLE.

I RECALL GROWING UP LISTENING TO SELF DESTRUCTION, WE’RE HEADED FOR SELF DESTRUCTION AND TODAY I SAY, “IS THIS WHAT THEY SAW? IS THIS WHAT THE BAG WAS ALL ABOUT? IS THIS THE INTUITION THEY HAD?”

ALLOW ME TO CLOSE OUT WITH WORDS FROM THE MASTER TEACHERS TO THEIR DESCENDANTS. THEY WERE NOT ONLY SCHOLARLY BUT WISE.

“Just as the SLAVE MASTERS of that day used Tom, the house Negro, to keep the field Negroes in check, the same old SLAVE MASTERS today has Negroes who are nothing but modern Uncle Toms, 20th century Uncle Toms, to keep you and me in check, keep us under control, keep us passive and peaceful and nonviolent. That’s Tom making you nonviolent. It’s like when you go to the dentist, and the man’s going to take your tooth. You’re going to fight him when he starts pulling. So he squirts some stuff in your jaw called novocaine, to make you think they’re not doing anything to you. So you sit there and ’cause you’ve got all of that novocaine in your jaw, you suffer peacefully. Blood running all down your jaw, and you don’t know what’s happening. ‘Cause someone has taught you to suffer — peacefully.
The white man do the same thing to you in the street, when he want [sic] to put knots on your head and take advantage of you and don’t have to be afraid of your fighting back. To keep you from fighting back, he gets these old religious Uncle Toms to teach you and me, just like novocaine, suffer peacefully. Don’t stop suffering — just suffer peacefully. As Reverend Cleage pointed out, ‘”Let your blood flow In the streets.”‘ This is a shame. And you know he’s a Christian preacher. If it’s a shame to him, you know what it is to me.” MALCOM X
