Just Be (part 2)

If you're a ball player, you're a ball player.
If you're a coach, you're a coach.
If you're a trainer, you're a trainer.
If you're an actor, you're an actor.
If you're a writer, you're a writer.
If you're a poet, you're a poet.
If you're an agent, you're an agent.
If you're a rapper, you're a rapper.
If you're a DJ, you're a DJ.
If you're a singer, you're a singer.
If you're a drummer, you're a drummer.
If you're a guitarist, you're a guitarist.
If you're a bassist, you're a bassist.
If you're a groupie, you're a groupie.
If you're a (role) model, you're a model.
If you're a President, you're a President.
But you can never be me,
So Just Be.

Review: Buy it.

Benny Burbs

Benny Hurwitz is far from perfect
And this he knows
Which is why I chose
To keep it real with him -
And throw them bow's!
When we go out and drink some stout
There's bound to be an issue
Someone left with scar tissue
But at the end of the night
There's no reason to fight
Just time to get inked and remember
We're not necessarily right.

Downtown Kenny Brown

Kenny Brown is always down
To take a trip and look around
At the world's craziness
But heaven knows he's no atheist
Just a dude that's rude
Forever crude
But what makes him cool?
He'll never change his FTW attitude.
And shit, that's why you gotta love
His fortitude.

Just Be

Forever rushing, forever touching,
My need to be at peace is forever gushing.
Pretty girls with diamond rings
These fancy things that say "bling bling"
Are not what the soul of man wants to sing.
Despite the forks in the road I see
That the true answer is to Just Be.

A Message To Obama

Keep the faith and stay strong. The struggle continues but it is almost over.

Fearless

Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger. At this point in my life, I have had several near-death experiences. These instances, most recently a car accident in July, are what make me stoic. I have contemplated suicide. I have drowned my sorrows in several poisons, mostly that of alcohol and marijuana. But, at the end of the day I am too strong to let any of these traumatic experiences or indulgences keep me from moving forward to my destiny. I dream of the day when all human beings are free from oppression and free from mind control. My dream is subconsciously shared by each and every human being whether they act upon that dream or not. I need to slow down in that pursuit, but I can't help but ask others to join the cause. This country is the most powerful and influential in the world. We need to lead by example. It starts by raising our children with this dream I speak of. Too many adults are blinded by their own interests to heed the subtle cries of their children. Fortunately for me, my parents were not. When my parents divorced, it was hard on me. But their split allowed me to have four guiding lights. Thank you Dad. Thank you Mom. Thank you Lou. Thank you CBOK. You have allowed me to roam free and I found my way home in time. I AM ALIVE AND I LOVE EVERY MINUTE OF IT. ESPECIALLY THE DIFFICULT MINUTES. NOW LET ME GET BACK TO MY PEOPLE :).

Sundays

Sundays are for Church.
Sundays are for chilling.
Sundays are for football.
Sundays are for sleep,
When the suffering gets deep.
Take it away, that's all I ever say -
To keep going and see the day
When everything is painless and
Everyone is OK.

Star Player (Katt Williams' gripe)

It is certainly true that in these days and times everyone needs to be more in tune with their star player. But, it is always good to remind ourselves that we are our own star player. Being selfish is no longer a manisfestation of our inner pain. It is the only way to make it through life without driving yourself crazy.

Eva Mendes

Everyone go to Kanye's blog asap and look at the photo set of Eva Mendes posted a few days ago. She is toooooooooo beautiful. Makes the beach look like heaven. It is in a sense, the ocean is about the most unique and dynamic force on Earth. And the sand is a reflection of its everlasting ebb and flow.

Tuesday

2's Day, timely like a When's Day,
Thirsty like a Thirst Day
Hotter than a Fry Day
Lower than a Sat Her Day
Brighter than a Sun Day
Less sensible than a Mun Day.

Song of the Day

Title: Africa
Artist: D'Angelo
Album: Voodoo

Sobriety

Sobriety will not keep me from being a menace
To society, these so-called profits keep lying to me
Telling me that withdrawal from the bottle
Makes me a role model
Well if that is the plan
I'll never be able to stop reaching out
For a helping hand
Get me out of this place I pray
Never going down this road again
Would rather be in D.C. alone again
Fuck writing poems, I need a drink.
(I haven't slept in a minute and sobriety is driving me insane).

Deny

Every once in a while, I go into denial, constantly struggling to make it through trials,
And tribulations, listening to various Pandora stations,
To ease the pain and the worries on my brain,
When I know more than ever I'm perfectly sane, just maybe a little imbalanced in the membrane,
The cells of my existence, and the faultiness of my persistence,
To be the best in every test,
That I face, oh it's such a disgrace,
To let go like I did in an earlier verse and fall from grace.

Song of the Day

Title: Dear Mama
Artist: 2Pac
Album: Me Against The World

North Campus (poem I thought up in psych ward)

I know they must love me.
I know they must care.
To stop all their business,
And greet me with a stare.
While I'm under the lens,
They just keep riding in Benz.
Until I reach MY ends,
None shall ever be friends.

Redman - I'll Bee Dat

One of the funniest music videos ever. All bias aside (sort of).

Pants on the Ground

The General Larry Platt's "Pants on the Ground."

Bebe (lazy jungle cat)

Bebe is a lazy jungle cat.
But she will chase down bugs
At the drop of a hat.
Last time I saw her
She wasn't so fat
But as long as she lives
I have her elegance to congrat.

Haiti Quake

My heart goes out to those affected by the serious earthquake in Haiti.

Married With Children (new seasons?)

This show scares me. Love and marriage are two different things and people sometimes forget. If I ever say "I do," I will go to the grave with that person. Maybe I'll just have a pretend wedding with an imaginary ring and imaginary guests. Or I could do it for real. Not sure about this one.

B. Sigs

Why Wouldn't He. Represent for SP my man. I feel another "Adrenaline"-type track with The Roots crew coming soon. Why not?

Sobriety Test

16 days and counting. Lord forgive me if I slip up. It's only the pain I feel trying to cope with itself. I'm only human. Good night and be ready for more contributions to this world from yours truly tomorrow (later today to be precise).

Team Miyata Track Frame

I have a new toy to mess around with in my basement. Team Miyata track frame. Powdery blue with gold decals. Cro-Mo with double lugging. Gonna be a great project to build up for the spring season.

Big Will's Flow-etry

I like the new poem my friend. You are getting better with age like all men should (no homo homie). Watching District 9, real intense movie with great plot and concept. Just try evicting me and see what happens.

Pac Made Me Do It

Smokin' Newports, gamin' marks. Back home and I love it.

Ye's Blog

It's getting better and better. The dude has a real heart man!!! Get em' Ye!!! Hangin' out at soup kitchens and stuff. Charity is the new clarity.

My Inner Blackness

Living at home with my parents for the time being. No cell phone for 90 days. Believe that and come see me in person. I'll be at home and/or at the gym philosophizing about my new found happiness. Life is so simple when you make it simple. Yeah, I'm currently unemployed. Technically. Technically. Technically. Did I say technically?

SWAT TOWN USA

I'm back in the original palace. Come find me because I'm on family "lockdown" for 90 days. Please believe me because this is no joke fam. I'm here and I'm not moving for a minute. I love it too much. Still watching Katt Williams.

I'MMMMMMM HOMMMMMEEEE!!!!

Watching Katt Williams' "It's Pimpin' Pimpin'," please check it out if you're a real mother-bleep bleep bleep. You get the point.
