Back Like I Never Wanted to Leave

dwightback

OMG.  As I’m writing in this white box, I feel so much better. I have been saying repeatedly that I’d revive this baby! It has been three years, bro. Three fawking years and the amount of shit that has transpired, the people removed, the goals accomplished and the fucks provided have varied. I believe my journey of self-improvement and expression pulled me from the keyboard and into life. Kind of like if you are always working in the office and it’s time to go into the field and use what you know… Except, that’s why my ass was in the office. Too much to say, minimal fucks considered; none given and not enough people working on themselves in the same fashion. Fast forwarding to today where the last couple of days have reassured that I will not and do not have to censor myself for people anymore. When I use “censor”, it’s in the terms of mincing words, overly considering people/situation, muting your true feelings, guilting yourself and all of that jazz. It’s just quiet for taking people into consideration because as the times go on this world, people seem to move with their own agenda in team settings. This is in work, relationships, roommates, business partners or whatever else. Being a very defensive responder, I peeped how that was ruining my communication with others so I got on it. Mainly because when I could be in the right, others would defending themselves instead of owning up to bullshit.

censorship

That easily makes me go to 100 real quick. Not aspiring to be the hothead my entire life so I work on it. Daily. Self-evaluations, crystals, chiropractors, exercise, contacts cleaning, Prayer, preach practicing, integrity, truth…. I can go on and on but what’s more important is that we all continue to better ourselves and be true to ourselves. LEARN YOURSELF! Learn why you have triggers, what triggers it and how you can help it. Learn ways to better cop with situations in your life. Do things that make your overall being happy; not what your lower self is convincing you to do. This world wide web is full of bullshit but also MUCH resourceful information given to you from so many different perspectives at that!

I say all of that to say this: I’m back. It’s needed. October begins tomorrow & that’s another 31 days for us to better ourselves, fine tune the details that we see in our Ultimate Self view. This country alone is off the shits and as individuals we really need to always be in our better person bag. People are dying and killing for less. So stay woke and out of your feelings negatively. Push all positive vibes and no that NOTHING happens for NO reason. That’s why the statement breaks English language rules. Observe yourself, know yourself, nourish your soul. Thank you all for reading and allowing me to cleanse a bit. It’s whatever your vice is remember? And mine, is speaking. When you find your voice, your reason, your purpose, getting high off life is the only desire.  What are some of your goals for next month? Share and help enlighten others. Sometimes (actually all the time) we need enlightenment from each other. =)

[Visual] Memories Back Then x T.I. + B.o.B. + Kendrick Lamar + Kris Stephens

I had to post this video because this is my ish. T.I.P., B.o.B. & Kendrick Lamar link up to share memories of past females in their lives while the beautiful songwriter, Kris Stephens, lays smooth vocals over beat produced by Maurice ‘Kenoe’ Jordan. T.I. has always had a great delivery so him opening this record was perfect. He explained the story of the hood jump I’m sure we all are familiar with.  B.o.B. did his thing  explaining how the one that got a way dipped because of groupie love and Kendrick came in for the finale with the bust down gold-digger  Shouts to that guy rippin’ everything. Every day I thank Compton for the sacrifice.

[Visual] A$AP Ferg + A$AP Rocky + Schoolboy Q + Trinidad James + French Montana x |Behind the Scenes| Work Remix

I cannot wait until tomorrow to see the complete video of   Work Remix. A$AP Ferg is ah’chea. NY is ah’chea. Shouts to homie in the Coogi and hair bobos. Oh, Rocky was looking like Celie during his interview in the shade with the white collared shirt & one braid out. I love him though. Schoolboy Q, Bucket hat Puffy. They all look like they had a ball shooting this video. I’m tight I wasn’t there? oh.

Premieres on VEVO tomorrow.

[Visual] Kendrick Lamar – Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe |Director’s Cut|

 Kendrick Luh-Mahr drops a visual to the crowd’s favorite. Loving the all white everything for the funeral, turn up scene (always celebrate life), open field shots & of course Mike Epps. Oh dear, he would be the one to actually attempt to baptize someone in alcohol.  At the end of the video, “Death to Molly” appears in white. Could this be the b*tch that kills vibes? Who knows considering the MDMA’s popularity has been skipping hand-in-hand with Mary through this hip-hop lane. I hope it dies soon. People get influenced much more easy now and I’m tired of the alleged Molly sweats. (woo!) And since shorty can lead you into other things that won’t just kill your vibe, I’d be careful.

But hey, whatever your vice.

However, peep Schoolboy Q‘s snippet of Man of the Year at the end.

Ouuuh.

[Let’s Rap] Robin Thicke on The Breakfast Club

The incredible Robin Thicke graced the Power 105.1 studio  this morning. I must mention that waking up to him speaking with my favorite breakfast crew turnt up my morning.

Peacefully commenting on the much talked about  Justin Timberlake comparisons (both white, with similar soul music influences and married to actresses), his comical relationship with Kevin Hart (gun on my waist! straight face!), the gorgeous Paula Patton (“that’s my girl! my girl fights harder than I do. You’ont wanna mess with her”) and an upcoming short film, Mr. Thicke shared some great things with The Breakfast Club.

Most importantly was his take on R&B music right now:

“R&B has lost a lot of it because it’s not soulful anymore. everybody’s popping bottles and getting girls… no one has any invulnerability and soul music and what R&B was always about was being vulnerable for love, being vulnerable in society and talking about those problems and trying to find hope within it.”

PREACH! Shouting out Miguel for being great at delivering soulful music as well as mentioning Drake, Kanye West& Kendrick Lamar (“I think is the new god of lyricism right now.”) as his inspirations.

Love the fact that after dibbling into the pop side more, Robin Thicke appreciates and wants to create more of his original sound. I think it works extremely well. Excited for Blurred Lines.

Shouts to the Uptown doe. The Bronx Moroccan French Montana and Harlem’s pretty muhheffa cover the March/April issue of XXL. Big things for NY and these guys. They both have been making big noise in Hip-Hop and I’m sure there’s even bigger things unfolding as a type.
