Woke up yesterday getting to my process of starting my day by tightening up. As usual, I tend to put toothpaste on my toothbrush first, then hit it with a little water, which I did, but this day was different.I noticed how the water appeared to be struggling a little while coming out the faucet all while I’m starting to brush my teeth, so you already know my spidy senses kicked in right? So I flushed the toilet, then went and turned the knob for the bathtub, and that’s when things got real.
WTH!!!!! All I could think of was the water crisis in Flint Michigan. Water coming out and as it filled the tub, it was as dark as the color of lager beer. All I could say was HELL NAW!!!!!! So I got self together, and made a move, because I had some runs to make, and then while in the midst I would also do my due diligence by asking some questions.
Come to find out when I asked some workers for the city, it was said that a water pipe had broke, and when I told him what the water looked like even he was kinda in a bit of a shock to what I had told him, and then the other worker was rushing him away. So a broken pipe was the case. Later on within the day, I did feel a little off as far as my throat and stomach, but I think I’ll be alright, but when I tell you all I was thinking about was the Flint, Michigan situation, you can only imagine.
But I guess this was naught the case being that, the water pipe broke instead of being intentionally switched. I just hope and pray that, they flush the system thoroughly, because from the color and the grit that was left in the tub alone speaks for itself. I also have to stress how important it is for oneself to be, and stay on top of things as well when it comes to things that go on in your city and state (Kalamazoo) (Michigan).
People run around complaining about certain things, but yet don’t do their due diligence by at least taking the time to get off their behind, and (SMART PHONE) and ask questions. Expecting these elected people who are representatives, and employees of the government to just cater to your lack in care unless it benefits you to me, is like a baby whining to the nanny about their wants, but yet we talk big and loud about how we winning, and all this frivolous fat man talk, but don’t even know how to conduct self when dealing with these people who are public officials.
Anyway, I just wanted to share this with those who have subscribed to my Knowledge And Music Email List, and those in Kalamazoo who may find what i have to say of some interest, and may naught have known about this. I also would like to extend my most sincerest appreciations to the City Of Kalamazoo, and it’s workers who were on top of this immediately, Chief Adam the Great X would like to say thank you, and this S/O is for you.
On a end note. One would have to ask how much do people really appreciate where they live, and those who are put in position to make it livable and safe? We as the real people must step up even when those who are willing naught to don’t, but naught in a hostile way, but in a way that the creator (God) needs you to, because at the end of the day this is about knowing what is, what isn’t and what is possible.
Know your power, and govern it accordingly, because with great power, it also comes with a greater responsibility. There is so much going on in this world today, that it tends to make you a bit paranoid, and that is because of some of the corrupted acts that have been demonstrated by those whom we’ve placed our trust in to be upright and just.
It ain’t the same no more, and some peoples acts are horrible, and makes you feel as if EVERYTHING IS CORRUPT, but the only thing one can do is do what one can do within ones abilities, and know what you are dealing with In These Dayz Of Tyme. Just my thoughts though for your awareness may this reach those who it reaches in high spirits. When A Chief Speaks.
So is it true that the struggles with Mental Health issues are being most slept on by those who act like they love and care about you? Those who are closer to you?
Here’s what I’ve noticed; no one appears to care about how serious Mental Health, Depression and Suicide really is until they’re either directly affected by it in some way or it hits home by someone being affected by it that are family who either takes their life or almost does it, and now people want to pay attention and take it serious when all actuality the signs were clearly shown to you Right Be 4 Your Eyez before hand.
Why do people naught care when the love one is here, but as soon as something tragic happens you have their undivided attention now that your either almost dead or laying in a casket? Didn’t have much to say to you in the physical, made excuses to how they lack in communication skills or they don’t know how to love someone who suffers from mental illness so, they basically abandon them, and or blame them for having such a struggle, but now that you are gone they want to pretend that they loved you so………….. much, and try to have all the communication and conversation (crocodile tears pouring) in the world with you, does that really count now that you are gone?
I’m just so serious with knowing what others have to truly say about this, because to me, that seems a little fake for them to commit such acts on people who they say they truly care about, but that’s just me, but I am raising topic of these thoughts for discussion for anyone who sees, and can prove different. Anyhow, I also ran across, and while reading an authors story about her own hands on experiences with family suffering from Depression and Mental Illnesses, I found her story so true, and truly powerful, and on point; that I wanted to share it with y’all.
I will leave a link for those of you who decide to take the time to read it, and feel free to leave your thoughts on this topic. Also, be sure to CLICK HERE to listen to a song clip from a song that will be on a LP project that, I’m working on that relates to this topic, and her story The Battle Of the Mind. Here is the link to the story called: “My Story” by little Blog of letting Go. Check it out and leave your thoughts below, thanks and may you be motivated, elevated and inspired by the work of #TheArtist4thePeople, blessings to all.

I ask this question because, I see that some of these Rappers, Music Producers, DJ, Music Industry and Radio Stations actions, and what they say is one thing, but clearly they’re showing to do another. So, my question is….. Do they really want you to succeed with your music creativity?
Do they really respect your drive, your hard work or do they just pretend that they do as a way of mocking you, and really saying to you that:
“I really don’t like you or your music, nor what you do, but I’ll pretend, and fake like I do as a way to keep you at bay supporting me, and what I have going on.”
Please tell me, that this is not the case. I mean, I am open minded to others opinions to this, so long as they aren’t being unreasonable towards speaking on the real truth on this matter.
And one of these truths are that, when these jokers who are (Rappers and Music Producers) etc. get into a certain position especially when it comes to entertainment and the music game where they’re calling shots. They tend to eventually loose themselves. Get loose as a goose, and start acting a @#%, and loose focus and control.
Ain’t it something how they start power tripping? Why? They’ll try and convince me, you or some other recording artist that:
“The only way to YOU SEEING ANY TYPE OF SUCCESS IN WHAT YOU ARE DOING WILL NOT GO NOWHERE UNLESS YOU BEND YOUR WILL TO ME?”
Are these rappers, music producers, DJ and radio host really doing this to recording artist intentionally? Are they really trying to hang a “success or failure” cloud over me, and your head? Well, I hate to say it, or better yet, no I don’t. I’m a tell you like this.
I think it’s important to really know how against you some of those who act like they really for you, are really just thinking about how they can rise above you, and you BENEATH them by using your time and energy for their benefit if they can see an opportunity to do so. Why?
I don’t know about you, but I see no realness in these type of acts, I see no real friendship, I see no value, no worth, balance, integrity, honor, cobstructive partner relationship or respect on either side for that matter.
And if this is the case, and if I have to turn on those principles stated above in order to feel like I’m on the right path, and bending to your will for you to have total satisfaction and control over my destiny in life, because this is all about building you and yours up, and me and mine suffer? Then where’s the love in that?
See, that’s the thing there is no love unless there is a better standing on both ends. And to try and deceive up and coming artist or those who are showing to be independent and hard on the grind is something that one must be able to see and probably experience for themselves.
I’m not trying to save a artists nor the world, I’m just speaking from my poibt of view to what I see, and if I’m wrong anywhere in what I have said, I stand to be corrected with PROOF IN TRUTH.
Anyway, I’m a leave y’all on this note. What I’ve also noticed, is how “Black People” who are in great positions (Successful), and that goes for some of these MAINSTREAM well known rap artist too, are doing the most, and committing damaging acts on their own so-called people why? And y’all so quick to support this riff raff?
Taught well? Maybe. Just really something to think about if you are trying to be a rapper, producer, DJ or maybe your just someone who supports, and or just able to see things for what they really are, and knows exactly where I’m coming from. Have the people become that blind? Not really.
I think more ignorant fits, and chooses to overlook the truth for what it is, and acceptance to it. I also see how our people are being influenced spiritually, but I’ll save that for another time. Do you beg to differ?
Leave a comment below, and share it to get others input, because if we don’t start taking a better look at what’s really going on, we can’t set the record straight, and move forward not only as the REAL recording artist for rap and hip hop, but not even as a people, and being just as bad if not worse. Blessings to all who are able to see.
