Why Spend Time Doing What I Do When People Show To Not Appreciate It?

I ask myself this question all the time. It be times where I don’t feel like people appreciate me, or my work am I wrong for feeling this way? There are times where I feel that I’m just wasting my time trying to bring awareness whether it be by my dealings with people on a spiritual level or through my music. I have mixed feelings about a whole lot of things in life. I see much of what goes on, because I pay attention, and I react to what I choose to, and I touch on what I feel I should when I need to.

Sometimes I feel as if I’m accomplishing nothing while others are accomplishing a whole lot, but the truth is, it may be just that I see what is going on, I don’t like nor approve of what’s going on, and the fact that many people are acceptable to the unacceptable, and though it appears that those who are in what I see to be good positions in this life are really not. Is it a illusion? Maybe, is it that my mind is playing tricks on me? Maybe, and should it matter to me? maybe. 

To be honest, I just wish that I was in a better position to be able to help the people who I see that are down. When I see some of my people they look so wore out, damaged and on they’re last leg. Like we’re just hanging on for dear life, poor with nothing more to offer. And then there’s a flip side where I see other races like Caucasians, Arabs, and now even Asians as well as others races who are seen to be doing better than my people why is this? Well, I do take the time to try and find out why, when I try to ask my people questions about what is it that they want, and do they have anything to talk about, they don’t want to speak on nothing why is this? 

So, when I come across these type, I say to myself why bother? Why spend my time trying to help those who show to not want to even help themselves by simply just talking about the conditions within the community, and touch on some ideas on how we as a people can work towards bringing a much needed change. I try to reach people, and even help people even when I myself too need help in certain areas. My people make it very hard to trust them. Trying to get my people involved is a task in itself, and at times can be very overwhelming. We talk about Black Lives Matter, but yet we’re the ones who are doing the most harm to one another, and to me, that is racist in itself.

How can we expect any type of change when we as a people are not making the necessary changes among-st one another? When I spend the time to do these post, it is in hopes that they will reach, and or be found by those who are trying to have a better standing to whats really going on, and just that alone is part of the reason to why I     find the strength to do what I do, and be who I am today verses who I once was many years prior to. Just today’s thoughts from the artist, and man who tries to elevate the minds of those who seek.

Do My People Really Want Things And Conditions To Change In Their Communities?

So this is a question that we all should truly be asking self. The reason why I am doing this post today is, because I actually question and challenge whether some of my black people in their communities actually want to see the conditions, and things change for better. Let me give you an example.

I decided to make my way through the hood in Kalamazoo, Michigan’s (North Side), and while doing so, I ran into a familiar face. I asked him was there anything he wanted to say about things that he wanted to see change in the community so that, I could bring it up and touch on it. He said yeah, but then allowed himself to be distracted.

Yep, he was on a mission, and if you from the way you already know what I’m talking about. So then, I asked this other guy: “What about you?” He started to slowly ease off, and then I stated: “You don’t have nothing to say?” He said “No” and slithered off, but hey that’s what it is sometimes, you can’t force change on no one, and your not suppose to.

I then went on my way, and continued upon my journey, and then ran into some other katts I knew, and it was a more constructive and positive energy from them. they were working hard and doing something that was of good services to the community. It was a auto repair shop that, I will be doing an article on soon, because I have something else that I want to do when it comes to brothers and sisters who are actually trying to build something, and whether they know it or not, I am in support of them.


After chopping it up with them, I then continued on my journey running into some other familiar faces, and I ended up in Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial park where many of my people hang out that are homeless etc. As I approached them, I was greeted and honored, because I am very well known throughout every hood North, South, and the East Side. I found out some things as well as had an impact on some if not all of the people who were there, and listened to what I had to say.

Esteem, I think that I was able to do this for some today with what I had to say. If you don’t know, esteem is also found in the Holy Bible, and what one should try to do. See, its one thing to esteem self, and another in taking the time to esteem someone else. don’t believe me?

Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.

And for me, to take the time to go and just make self’s presence known, and to let my people know that, someone cares. I care, and them knowing that, I haven’t forgotten about them I think means a lot not just to me, but to them as well. Before leaving the park, I let them know that; though they may feel as if they are alone in the fight they are not. And though they may feel less appreciated, know that it is just the opposite, they are appreciated, and I left. Upon leaving, I could hear one of the women say that: “I really needed that encouragement he just don’t know.” I smiled, and kept it moving.

Anyway, I really just wanted to share today’s experience with y’all, and my point in doing so is not to just share the negative, but how important it is to look at both sides of things in life. No, some people especially those within the conditions of the hood don’t want things to change, but there are those who do. Do you give up on the hood, and those within the communities just because those who don’t want things to change? Not me, I’m working on some things, and like I told them, I shall return, and I don’t want them to get behind me, I need them to be right beside me.

It didn’t take money, me dressing up, pulling up in a fly ride stunting none of that, it just took me, to come and let them know that, #TheArtist4thePeople is at work, and want them to know that what and how they feel about things do matter and count if they keep the faith, and find the strength to do something, say something and know that they are not alone.

And in all honesty, I can honesty say that, I feel that I accomplished what I had no idea was in plan for me today. I didn’t wake up and plan the mission that I was on, It would appear that, the mission was already being prepped for me to do, but it was on me to pay attention. See, the creator (God) is always mapping and planning things out for those who choose to take on the task by ones own freewill and choice. You don’t pick the task that you wanna do, you are picked for the task that you are needed to fulfill, but that’s just my opinion.

Well, I think that I was able to do some good today, because something actually good happened to me, that has been really bothering me, and just when I thought one thing, it turned out another, in my favor and actually now a better situation than it has been these pass weeks, and that I am truly thankful for. It also lifted my spirit to know that I was able to lift anthers, and that’s what we should actually be doing if we want and need change are we not?

Well, I’m going to end this post, but I would like to know your thoughts on this post, and what you think it would take to change the conditions within the hood, inner cities living and environment of Kalamazoo. Feel free to leave a comment below especially if your from Kalamazoo, Michigan. Thanks for taking the time out to read my blog, and make sure to subscribe. Peace and many blessings.

Caught Someone Slumped Sver Near The Cemetery Was They Dead?

Chief Adam the Great unexpectedly runs into someone while riding on the RAW psyde.

What up y'all. Dig, I know that I don't be as on point with updates for y'all when it comes to post, but please bare with me. Wanted to share a video I did earlier. It was at the spare of the moment, but I was on point. Anyway, As I was riding my bike, I encountered something that is actually the norm for me. Life on the RAW psyde in Kalamazoo, Michigan is always a unpredictable moment.There are times where I will engage, and there are times where I won't. I move when the spirit says to.

As I decided to walk my bike up the hill on my way to the west side, I noticed someone slumped over. My first thoughts wasn’t that they were dead, but, I just had to catch this on video, and engage. What would you have done in this type of situation? There are many times where many of us tend to act as if we’re just too busy, running around reckless minded, and even careless. Sometimes it pays to interact, and there are times where it doesn’t pay off so well. You really have to know when to get involved when it comes to people who you don’t know anything about  or getting in their personal business, and or affairs, because it could definitely backfire in the most heated way.

Running into situations such as this; is nothing new for I am out and about a lot. I haven’t been driving/traveling in my automobile for personal reasons, so I either been walking and or getting it in by riding my mountain Bike. But what if, what I had not taken the path I was on today. Everyday for me, is not just a basic day, but a blessing, a journey, a path, and destiny. Many of us tend to find ways to alter out clocks of destiny by the choices we choose, which; well I’m pretty sure you know the rest.

But, there is a flip side to this too where sometimes when the Creator (God) needs you to either be in a certain place in the nick of time, or just for experience purposes, one would somehow be placed in the lives of others, as a test? Maybe, it just all depends on how you look at it. If you know me, and or pay attention to some of my thoughts, whether it’s by my post, articles, and or music, you would have a better standing to where I’m coming from.

Psalm 32:8-9
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you. Do not be as the horse or as the mule which have no understanding, Whose trappings include bit and bridle to hold them in check, Otherwise they will not come near to you.”

As I said; when the spirit moves, it moves, but only through those whom chooses the spirit to do so. Remember, just as there are good spirits, there are also bad ones that dwell. So what happened? Was the individual dead? If you watched the video, you already know the answer. Well, that’s all I have for y’all at this time. I just wanted to share my great adventure on the RAW psyde where I reside here in Kalamazoo, Michigan there is the good, the bad and much of the ugly, but you know what? #TheArtist4thePeople chooses to embrace it all, and keep it moving, because when you have #Gods4lo, life is seen on a whole different level. I hope that you find elevation in my post. Feel free to comment your thoughts by engaging.
Peace N many blessings to all.
