Loc-umentation... Pt. 3 Coming to computer screen sooner than you think... = )

What Today Brings!


“Sticks and stones are hard on bones. Aimed with angry art, words can sting like anything. But silence breaks the heart.” - Unknown


Egalitarian - asserting, resulting from, or characterized by belief in the equality of all people.....

"Just call this shit hiipower. Nigga nothing less than hi power"

A. Clay hip'd me to this, so I might as well share it with you all.. & don't forget to go and check out his blog... Two Left Feets

"Just call this shit hiipower. Nigga nothing less than hiipower"

According to Killer Hip Hop, HiiPower is Kendrick Lamar's first single from his upcoming project "#Section80". Produced by J. Cole and directed by Fredo Tovar and Scott Fleishman (Download on iTunes). You can check out more of Kendrick Lamar's videos and vlogs on his Youtube Channel at . At the beginning of the video he explains why he's doing this #Section80 project. Kendrick Lamar is listed as #9 on The BIG List: Greatest Rappers Alive Under 30, beating Wale, Wiz Khalifa, Cory Gunz, Meek Mill and Juelz Santana, just to name a few.

"I wrote #Section80 because I was ordered to do so. You'll never understand my life and my world. Have you ever seen a new born baby kill a man? Kendrick Lamar. The very next scene is a visual of me with the eyes of a 6 year old. My mother told me to keep this outtake because it said who I was. An infant looking for answer. Will you forgive me? I don't give a fuck about too much nowadays because of the world. Heart. Honor. Respect. Family. I'll die for that though. Will you forgive me, twice? Probably not. I watch this video and reminisce on that crazy am hour of September 13, 2010. I got a visit from Lesane Parish Crooks. Research this name. I remember being asleep. His image said "Don't let me die." I was paranoid. I said "why"? He said "because you the.....""
- Kendrick Lamar

Check these lyrics.. ------ HiiPower

"..This is physical and mental
I wouldn’t sugar coat it
You’ll die from Diabetes if these other niggas wrote it
And everything on TV just a figment of imagination
I don’t want no plastic nation
Read that like a Hatian
While you muthafckers waiting
I be off the slave ship, building pyramids writing my own hieroglyphs.."

This is about to be something big. Just think, with young artist such as Big K.R.I.T., Nipsey Hussle, Wale, Kirko Bangz, J.Cole, Lupe Fiasco, Cory Gunz, Big Sean, B.o.B., and so many others we're in for a real treat. They are all about to give us something we've been waiting for, something we've needed for the past decade; GOOD MUSIC.

Now.... here's the video. Tell me what you think.

Did I mention? Graduation/HBCU Edition!

Did I forget to mention that......

I am now an Alumni of Morgan State University.....?

I guess I did. = ) I graduated on Saturday, May 21, 2011 @ 10am in the W.A.C. Hughes Stadium on Morgan State University's campus. I am still officially apart of the graduating class of 2010, I completed in December just had to wait to walk across the stage. But I made it, "Momma i made it!"

Alma Mater
  1. Fair Morgan, we love thee, so tried and so true,
    Our hearts at thy name thrill with pride;
    We owe thee allegiance, we pledge thee our faith,
    A faith which shall ever abide.
    We pledge thee our love, we pledge thee our faith,
    Whatever the future may bring,
    And thus our devotion, fidelity too,
    And homage we pay as we sing.
  2. Fair Morgan, as onward the years quickly fly,
    And thou livest in memory sweet.
    We bring thee our laurels whatever they be,
    And lay them with joy at thy feet.

I love my university and will forever owe a debt to Morgan State, because of that school and the people in it, I've learned so much about myself, my culture and about others. I have so munch love for that University and every chance I get I try to share my experiences and my knowledge of my HBCU with other people. And just for those reading here is a link listing all 105 HBCU's just for you, just click on it -------- List of HBCU's...

Spread the word, HBCU's are just as relevant as they were when they first were founded.

Who runs the world...? Men..

I stumbled across this video on WSHH not to long ago. I just forgot to share the video on my blog, ; / oops... sorry.. Well anyway, this video is done by @NineteenPercent, she has her own Youtube Channel, search her at Nineteen Percent or click. I haven't had the opportunity to look at all of the videos just yet, but I do plan on doing so. Moving on.. so basically Ms. NineteenPercent took it upon herself to break Bey's song, "Run The World (Girls)" down, and I don't mean just break it down, I mean rip it apart, Literally!!!! In the description of her vlog she tries to make people understand her actual point isn't to show hatred to Beyonce but to make a point that females, indeed do not run the world and that we actually have a lot more to accomplish before we can even form our mouths to make a statement such as that. (Not to discredit any of our outstanding woman pioneers who've fought and struggled to get us this far, because we've come along way but just not far enough.)
"I get it. It's just a song. This video is not about Beyonce. It's not even really about this song. My point is NOT that she shouldn't have made this song because of X, Y, and Z. My point IS: Oh, Look! X, Y, and Z exist and this song is a great tie-in to a discussion of feminism. If you've watched some of my other videos, you would be able to sense the sarcastic tone. Relax."
She's clearly a feminist... and nothing's wrong with that. In fact she states that in her vlog that she is and actually gives us a website to continue our research on it if we wished to..... But what really got me while watching this video is the beginning when she says "...which by the way i don't think female domination is the goal, i think the end game should be a socially egalitarian society " which is what we all should be trying to do. We should learn to live and be EQUAL. Segregation and being divided gets us, as a people, nowhere and nowhere fast! I couldn't have said it better myself. Anyway, make sure you watch the video below and comment on it and also check out her Youtube Channel, which I'm actually trying to do at the moment.
