I know that, there are those of you who think that, the whole Ecstasy Line (Ex-Train) thing that goes on in Kalamazoo is something fresh and new, but is it? Well, if you know as I know, and come from my days in time you would know that, it’s naught. But, there are those who don’t know, so I thought I’d touch on it a bit.
So, what is the Ecstasy Line (X Train)? It’s basically a modern version to what many of those street katts from back in day use to do. They would form lines in they’re hot rides after the club, and mob thru the zoo, and Spring Valley. One of the famous slogans for this line was called: (Doing the Loc). And those who are from this era know that, that stands as truth.
So now decades later, you have these children of some of those from back in the day who are now growing up, and now you have what I call repeat of events of history. You have people children out in these streets doing what was once done, but on a whole new level, and an effective one, but in a more negative way.
How? You don’t have to take my word for it, you just look at the facts to the matter, and that the results, and impact that has been laid, and see it for what it is, and naught fool yourself. It’s naught what you do, but how you do it, and when it has no good intent behind it, it ends up eventually being viewed, and looked at as more nonsense, people involved especially your (children) eventually are made examples of and then falling off like bad dope.
So, I’ll say it again; this Ecstasy Line (X Train) is something that was adopted from something already done back in the day and just renamed and nothing more than just something looked at by your children to be cool to do while hanging out with their friends, and family enjoying themselves while coming threw the hood in the zoo.
But naught only that, and what many of you are trying to dodge is the fact that, this is the promoting of and named after a man-made substance “Ecstasy” is it naught? This new way of coming threw the zoo has a negative affect, and impact, and the reality is that, it has done more damage than good. People have been hurt, done went to jail, killed and people’s property has been damaged. Why? Go figure, ask yourself, but I’m pretty sure that ya know.
LOOSING ON BOTH SIDES IN KALAMAZOO
And let’s naught forget the lives lost, affected, those who done went to prison and lives disturbed due to the noise, busting of liquor bottles in the streets, and I can go on. By who? I think you know the answer. Now if I’m fabricating then by all means correct me, but this is the clear truth on naught what I can see, but you too can see if your being real with self.
You just can naught expect to see, know and receive what one say’s that one needs, and wants if we allow ourselves to accept the Un acceptable, condoning, and or participating in the acts, and things that we know are a part of the cause in naught being able to see better, and rise beyond the madness that we see going on within the communities that one occupies, which are problems created due to what?
You have those people who keep raging on about we need, but naught realize that, that need first starts naught without first starting at the root of the problem. “Fact” I can’t help but recall when I was one who was so fed up with the fact that, I had to come outside, and clean up broken glass in the street to prevent self or anyone else from getting a flat tire to the point where, I heard I think Buddy Hanna talking about it on the radio station, and I decided to call in and address it, and had my say on it. And naught only that, but then decided to get with my partner in rhyme MC My D and came up with a song on this topic called: “Why.” (Y)

See, the thing about it, I been addressing these issues, and we been touching on these things in our musical work for some time now. For us as Musicians/recording artist and music producers who #GiveIt2EmRaw for Kalamazoo, and for any other city and state; this is what and how we choose to reach back by bringing awareness in hopes to better enlighten our peers and those listeners of our creative musical work as ZooRillaz.
Guys who been through it, and know the real life style of the street, and hood life. See here’s the thing; we been Livin’ Oon the Edge, we been threw much of the obstacles that are now faced and praised by y’all children, and at one time we too praised it, but we made changes, and sacrifices to be who and where we are today, so we have no interest in knocking anyone for the choices they make, but don’t expect total agreement with things that show to naught be in alignment with ones cause.
Our only mission is to keep working towards giving back, by showing hope and exercising being the good recording artist’s that we need to be. To be good delivers of the word. And though you have those who would rather make attempts to mock, and secretly bite the style and parade on with this whole big I, little U messy mindedness as if what we strive to do is naught good enough and relevant with intent.
I don’t hate to inform you, but we continue to stay relevant, and as long as the creator (God) continues to help us on the mission in our real struggles to put music for the mind out we won’t be denied. What we do, and how we do it shall be done like no other, and we bow to none. The ones who call themselves doing any better is no more than a boaster.
“For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, and unholy.”
Now what does that tell you. I think you see many of those type don’t ya? also mentioning the fact to how those who say that they are for the good and change for Kalamazoo, and for unity, but at the same time show otherwise by trying to underplay, undermine and try to say slick shhh…. in reference to the light bringers for the Zoo?
Anyway, I just let that work do the talking, and after, and or if you decide to take a listen to the song above “Why” (Y) I leave it to you, the readers, visitors and listeners to decide especially those of you who are living in Kalamazoo, and can relate to this post. And please keep this in mind. If y’all don’t handle your children by taking the time these people will or the streets will claim their life, I’m out.
Leave a comment below, pros or cons and if there’s truth found in the song.
By all means SHARE THIS WITH YOUR CHILDREN AND ASK THEM WHAT DID THEY GET FROM IT.

It’s naught just about us, we just want to know what you got if you got anything, and I’ll leave it at that. Good day to those who are able to see.
When A Chief Speaks
I just can’t dodge the desire to set the damn record straight when it comes to the whole: “people being racist” talk. I have to question the fact to whether many even have a better standing to, and or even know what the defining of racist, and racism really rather than what they’d allowed themselves to let they’re mined be more conditioned, programmed, swayed and played with.
That is my relevant question to all who allow self to get webbed, and tangled up into other people’s messy mindedness in thought. So, let’s clear it up for those of you who are my engaged readers, and take the time to come to my site for your dose of Knowledge And Music. So, we all know what we’ve been taught by other races of people’s actions to naught like, hate and show to be racist towards other races of people due to the pigment of they’re skin tone right? Meaning that, they are showing racist acts, which is racism right?
If you agree, and are with me, so-far then we can keep it moving. Now, first off let’s see what the defining of being racist is. Racist: “In the U.S., race hatred, race prejudice.” this is what we’ve been taught to see it as correct? But here’s the thing; this is also considered as a belief, a belief used for the purpose of showing that ones race is more superior than and over another would you agree? This is also dealing with the English race, which is what we use to define things right? meaning, its there’s whomever they may be, and naught yours, and they can change it up whenever they like right?
Don’t think so? Let’s look at racism. Racism: Definition of racism 1 : A belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race 2: A doctrine or political program based on the assumption of racism and designed to execute its principles. A political or social system founded on racism. 3: racial prejudice or discrimination.
It also say’s that it means “Anti-Negro” and I’m pretty sure that you know what that means too right? So let me ask you, does it appear to be seen as a means of ones opinion, and expression towards how someone, and or a body/race of people feel towards another? Isn’t that also called freedom of expression so long as you do it peacefully and don’t cause harm to and or infringe on another s space?
Now one would quickly raised to issue to the fact that; back then and even throughout time they did just that all of the things I mentioned, but did horrible things to our race of people right?
I’m naught gone get into that right now, because I want to make this short, but. Can you naught see where I’m going with this? If naught, then what I am saying is that, people who allow themselves to get all bent outta shape when it comes to someone else s thoughts, and opinions especially when it comes to dealing with racial discrimination issues be it groups of another race of people, and or law enforcement/authority figures overstepping their acts in power while in and out of office capacity.
You allow yourself to get all bent outta shape because of some messy minded thoughts of others who for 1, you know nothing about, and know nothing about you, and are also acting out of ignorance. 2, while you’re so caught up by letting them mind f*** you and you can’t even see that, it’s energy/life force that is being absorbed from you all due to your ignorance, and acceptance.
That is the possible truth, because this is what people show through their acts clearly based off of someone else s belief system? And you wanna know what’s worse? you choose to engage in the calamity, and whose to blame, them or you? Did they force you? Put a gun to your head to be just as ignorant as they’re showing to be and act? And if you want to get back on the whole slavery thing. You would then have to look at WHY laws, and amendments were made, and much more.
So, I’ll say it again, you allow other people to move you like a game piece, you complain about how people are being racist, and all this jive, which they are. But what does what they say, and how they feel have anything to do with the truth? Either they are right or they’re naught, and in the end, it’s all on you to prove, figure out and show otherwise. It’s all about the energy people no matter the pigment of your skin tone.
It’s how you choose to engage with other people, and regardless how someone may feel about you you still have a choice don’t you? The thought energy that you put into these words in itself is power, and it is all on you how you see yourself and allow information to come in. And I’ll leave you with this; if you’re going to call it, call it right and the word hate is what you might want to consider using. Ain’t it something how throughout all the defining above on racist/racism never did it mention hate why? Your welcome, and I humbly challenge those who see, and can prove otherwise, I’m out.
This is a reality at it’s finest whether you can phantom accepting those truths or naught. And as hard as it already is to strive towards being, seeing and doing better than, because you know way better than anyone else to all that you have been through throughout life.
Having to find a way to deal, and work through all of the obstacles placed before you by those in this life whether it be; so-called friends, family and or just the externals in general is a helluva task to take on in itself.
What am I talking about some of you, the readers may say to self?🤔 I am talking about the dealings that we all have to face that appear different, but are naught. I am touching on the fact that, the experiences that we all have in some way, shape and form. tyhese exeperiences that we have with people in life tends to affect oneself directly or indirectly, and there is no getting around this fact.
The fact that, you can have people who will be for you, stand up for you, and help you to elevate by the energy that they use to either uplift you, inspire and motivate you by wanting to be a part of your life and growing process in your time, or do just the opposite.
Just knowing this by pondering on much of what I’ve been through in life, and then to have someone, and or people to try and undermine, take for granted, belittle, underestimate and make it seem as if what I’ve been through in life, which was my own struggles, and strive towards seeing, knowing and making a decision to wise up in order to grow for personal development, and what i have to say doesn’t matter.
It places oneself in a mind state that, those who show to be against than for you by the projection of energy cast upon you showing that they could care less if you rise from your fall to me, is no different than a attack on ones will, mind, heart and spirit to exercise the goodness given.
why do people who you look to to be there for you end up hurting you? Why do they choose to find reasons to conflict, fallout, pretend and play games with the ones who clearly show to be working on self?
Maybe it’s because you have to learn in order to experience in order to have a better standing with who and what you’re dealing with when it comes to your dealings with people whomever those people may be.
Just the experience in itself allows you see things for what they are, and know how to better deal, or choose to naught deal at all. This is what I’ve learned and come to realize. I’ve come to realize that, no matter what happens, it happens and for me, it happens for a reason. The reason? Maybe to be able to know in order to better discern what and who is for you, and who and what is naught.
Better to know than naught know, and that is where I now am at in this roller coaster world that, we call life. The reality is, is that we are living among-st the over sensitive, over emotional UN-balanced lost out of mind of people who too are just working their way, but choosing to work in the wrong way, even though they may feel it’s in the right way when it might be naught.
That is the Battle of the Mind and what and how people decide they are going to see things, and feel; that is their own freewill and choice and you just have to let people have that.
What I mean by that, is that no matter what you do, and how you do it, people who show to naught be working towards reaching beyond base consciousness you will be seen and looked at as foreign and what you say shall be taken as alien to them especially when it comes to your dealings in spiritual growth, and development.
Some people just want to keep you boxed in, because they have set limits on themselves, and is no different than the saying: “Crabs in a barrel.” some people will only be for you so long as it benefits them, or against you to try and stop you from elevating, and reaching beyond base consciousness, and obtain the things (Tools) that will help you.
Instead, they’ll try to hinder you to stop your energy flow to be and do the most for the good by purpose, naught yours, but the one that may well have been set for you before your conceiving.
When I look at my good side, bad side of growing up, and much of what I’ve been through, and where I am today, I tend to work towards now utilizing all of what I know and channel it because in the end, it’s all energy.
To see how people jump on the what we call: “The bandwagon” of some of those who clearly show to be imposters, pretenders and wearing mask especially in these industries be it music and or entertainment.
That, would clearly irritate, and make you feel very angry, because you’re saying to self: “How can those who I look to to see what I am doing now, which clearly shows the intent to make an effort to project change, and build something in order to be in a better position to give back by the work that I produce (Musical Art Works through Unique Production) show to be and go against me, my vision, mission and will to do so?”
See, this is one of the problems that I have with people nowadays. This is what hurts the most, to know that those who are close, and that you love, care and show by your actions that you are for them, and that you want them to grow and develop with you only for them to show just the opposite. These type of people, I feel has set limits with you from jump. #Fact
You were deemed a temporary, and that’s how they’ve looked at you meaning; you are only as good to and for them due to whatever the negative thinking to seeing you as a security for them until you are no longer usable.
Am I lying? Women do this a lot don’t they? Pretty sure that you know some too. you’ll hear and see these type of brainwashed women brag about it just as well as men do it too. But, I see it, and have even experienced this hands on, and those are truths that no one can challenge.
These type of experiences are the ones that are what I know are mentally wearing and tearing on the mind, body and spirits of man. All of it, and if you don’t know how to bring self into better alignment then you place self right in the middle of other peoples tug of war in life.
This is part of why you have all of these Identity crisis’s going on. Failing relationships, and people naught being comfortable with who they are, because they’ve yet to even spend time in working on building on that in order to know so that they won’t allow self to get caught up in the web of making you give up on who and what the Creator sent, and needs you to ascend into being, a better you.
And what people have shown me, is that they just don’t care, nor want nor have a need for that, because they enjoy taking on the ID and feel good of imagining that they are who they work so hard to mimic, duplicate, and clone only to be in denial of reality. You see it all around you, and just touching on this bothers people.
It bothers that woman who you love, care and see more in to show due diligence in giving a damn enough to challenge her mind in hopes that she will see in order to know in order to even want the need to make necessary changes, and will show to gratitude, thankfulness and appreciation for even taking the time to breath on her, and will do whatever in her power to be close to you and stay connected what’s wrong with that?
To them, it’s wrong because they feel as if you are trying to tell them what to do, and make them feel like they are a child. They’ll accept nonsense just for a satisfaction from people who show to mean them no good over the one who clearly shows otherwise. That again is a real experience that, I know very well.
I am now working on just naught bothering with how others choose to be, because it pulls on your life force, it brings your vibration and energy down, it just brings you down. And this is why I choose to place my all in a different direction, and use my art in music to keep working towards what I want, and need and naught worry about people who show to naught be in my best of interest,
A carnal minded woman will bring you down just as well as a man. People want you to accept them as they come with no questioning and that they don’t need to work towards balance in standards when it comes to what you may need to see come from them, which one could look at as working their way up to your standards, naught down what’s wrong with that?
Everything that is being projected by people in this world that is fake are praised as good, and those who are showing to project the opposite is naught real, and naught good. Flipping people on they’re heads. just tired and fed up with it all, and I’m just glad that, no matter how people will show to give up and turn on you, it doesn’t mean that you should do it to yourself.
