Version 2.0

Culture, healing, politics and bullshit - Not necessarily in that order

The general, socio-political and very personal rantings and ravings of a hip hop head from the hood hustling for change... Of himself.

You all know me and are aware that I am unable to remain silent. At times to be silent is to lie. For silence can be interpreted as acquiescence.
—Miguel de Unamuno

I'll never do it again, but I gotta ask you...

Aiight, aiight...

I will never drink and drive again.

I am flattered and blessed to have so many people in my corner. For that I am thankful. Keep my family and friends in your prayers... I'll be fine in time.

Apologies again for the driving fiasco.

I am blessed and flattered that you care. I really am.

I must ask the peanut gallery, what pushes you? I mean, what makes it worth the while to get out of bed and do it to death every day? For me, it's the fact that I get another chance when so many others either can't do or just don't get it that there is another chance. The reset button (to a point) was pushed and there is another shot.

That's my reason, what's yours?

How's your retirement plan looking? Mine is non-existant and right now I have no clue as to where money will be coming from to take care of my old stank ass. Does anyone have a game plan implemented? Care to share? I do have my writings that are set to be published, but only my mother has actually promised to buy a book and a CD, so I need a solid plan B. An opportunity opened up for me in Georgia to join 3 different law enforcement agencies. After what I saw last week, I'm not sure if I'm cut out to see young men murdered and have to tell the parents about it. I don't know if I have the stomach to leave a home in which I know wifey is getting her ass beat by her loving husband. What if I jack some dude up ans see him at the A&P? You can best believe it'll be on.

My talent is plan A. My degree is plan B and C. Law enforcement is plans D, E and F. Do I need more options? Then tell me?

How many bloggers are coming to Atlanta Memorial Day weekend? I plan on being there, and I plan on performing a few pieces at a spot or two as well. Maybe we can have wheebarrel races down Piedmont. Potato sack races down Peachtree or spy some male hookers on Cheshire Bridge Road? What about going to all of the stripclubs and canvassing the stripper population to see if we can unionize thier asses? What if we can help mount a scrippa strike? That'll be fun... Well not for a lot of hard up dudes...

If you haven't done so already, make sure you get down to New Orleans and/or hit the secret internet site (EDIT: I was made to take the link off - the law didn't think it was a good joke) and vote for Ray Nagin. Hell, most of you drove down there and illegally copped one of those $2000 debit cards to score some new rims, Jordans and baby clothes (wassup get-it girl you know how you are... and you owe us lunch too!), you might as well recycle the black hook-up and put Whining Ray back in there for another term. If we can re-elect Bush, then Ray Nagin should get a 20 year term. Funny shaped head ass nukka...

Was I wrong for siphoning fuel for my neighbors van this morning so I can get to work? Gas here is over the $3 mark and we're creeping to $4. We should all go in on a gas card via pay pal and use it in multiple states. I'll report it stolen a month from now which means we all drive for free (I swear, if I get an email on this...).

I wasted over $100 on XM Satellite Radio for my new car and my office. Now that the Neo Soul channel is gone... I'm back with my iPod. Getting back with an ex has never felt better. has a good neo soul channel... Pay the 5 bux and tell em Hassan sent you... Or Large Marge.

The Cleveland Cavs have admitted that keeping LeBron James on their payroll will be damn near impossible. Which NBA team can afford dude, or will he play himself out of the NBA due to being too expensive, barnstorm with the And1 vs Nike tour and take on all comers? The kid is so good that no one can afford him. Shame, he's only 21. Oh snap, the Bulls and Bobcats can...

Do you care that Barry hit a home run this weekend? Will the press leave him alone, or will the witch hunt continue?

Do you care that Dave Chappelle's movie was dropped from half the theaters carrying it? Did you see it? Is this cat the modern day sambo a.k.a. "Mantan 2006"?

Do you care that Ludacris called Oprah out on her boycott of him? Ms. Winfrey has excluded him from her 'Crash" worship services, soooo...

Do you care that the other exotic dancer that performed on Duke's campus for the lacrosse team said that there was no rape and that she saw or experienced nothing?

Enquiring minds want to know...

Who hand-washes thier underwear?
