Thank you to each and every one of you for your support. This album tells in the art form and cultural language of called Hip-Hop my story and journey in this world of ours. May my message and music resonate with each and everyone of you, as I am truly grateful for this opportunity.
The newer America that elected Obama did not elect Trump.
You know who did?
The Totalitarian International. The Totalintern.
A unified force between all the fringed sides & angles of the political spectrum; left and right, up and down, diagonal, etc.
Putin. Erdogan. Maduro. Assad. Sisi. MBS. Boris Johnson. Le Pen. Aliyev. Kim Jong Un. Xi Jinping. Netanyahu. Modi. Names ring a bell?
How could these men affect American politics?
The same way they do it in other countries.
Propaganda & money.
Trump is broke and dumb.
Come on America. Wake up!
The Totalintern exploited the weaknesses of American society — appealing to an array of post-60s American personas; the cynical leftist, the lazy racist, the pretentious pseudo-intellectual, & the angry celebrity.
From Sam Harris to Jill Stein, Tomi Lahren to Ann Coulter, Maajid Nawaz to Cornel West, Bernie Sanders to Gary Johnson – American pride was their target.
When I scroll through the infamous “comment section” of a news article with statements by apathetic leftists or jobless rightists regarding the topic of, lets say for example, “US Noninterventionism”.
I’ll see something like: “AMERICA KILLED HALF A MILLION IRAQIS.”
Yes, & Saddam fed them watermelon & cheese.
The Totalintern & their “patsies” have coopted indigenous struggles too, such as the liberation of Palestine.
It has been all talk for half a century.
Tensions between smaller nations are assets for the Totalintern too, like the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict, over the occupation of Palestinian territory by Israel, or the conflict between Armenia & Azerbaijan, over the occupation of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) by Azerbaijan.
The former occupation was initially orchestrated by Clement Attlee of England which then was replaced by leadership America; and the latter occupation by Stalin which was then replaced by leadership in Russia.
I beseech you. America; wake up.
Being a hero doesn’t mean just protecting freedom.
The top 3 are my personal favorite and who I see as the most consistently best rappers in throughout their careers, relatively speaking. The further down the list you go the less consistent the rappers’ discography becomes. Jay Z on the other hand displayed continuity, consistency & maturity in 444. Eminem disappointed some fans with Revival, despite doing a good deed by standing for the culture with The Storm, his last best project was not coincidentally Dr. Dre-produced: Relapse. His best 4 albums, featured the most Dr. Dre production, SSLP, MMLP, The Eminem Show & Relapse. The bottom 7 songs are my favorite and what I see as Jay-Z’s best songs. Many have their own personal favorites, but these do something different for me. They are personal, and intimate.
Dead Presidents 2
The Ruler’s Back
Can I Live
Coming of Age
I made this Jay-Z list initially because these would likely be the only songs I’d add to my personally curated list of the greatest songs of all time, spanning all genres & time periods, but I could not include his songs since his music is exclusive to TIDAL, which I respect.
I debated between 50 cent & Kanye for number 11, ironically & coincidentally. Kanye would be higher, but I lost respect for him, and his more recent projects have less soul, since Graduation. 50 has kind of fallen off; but his first two albums, and subsequent singles with G-Unit were timeless and earned him a permanent place in the canon of Hip-Hop’s Hall of Fame.
Here is a link to my Spotify playlist. Enjoy my personal experience with this wondrous universe of music spanning and embodying true musical originality, craftiness, diversity, authenticity & musicality.
Honestly I see Jay-Z & Eminem as tied at first; but considering my style, although I am influenced highly by both and listen to both a lot, my style is very much a reincarnation of Eminem. So I’ve got to be true to myself. My music, my voice, flow and content. I would say what I borrow from Jay Z’s influence mostly is his sense of being cultured; and that is where my heritage and ethnicity come into play. I rap like Eminem, but I was raised like Jay.
