This is the first post that I’ve actually written directly to the readers of my blog. I’m not sure how many people actually check my blog on the regular (obviously some people do according to my blog stats), but I thank you for the love. I haven’t been posting a lot lately because I have a lot on my plate right now, but what I’ve done since I started in February is just the beginning. I plan to go full steam  ahead with The Truth Renaissance beginning in September. To be honest, a lot of things on this blog are still incomplete.  However, expect a lot more album reviews, editorials, videos, social commentary,  articles of interest, everything music and fashion related, book suggestions, etc. Also, be on the look out for more information on what this Truth Renaissance is all about. Until then, check out the video and LASERS Manifesto below; it definitely serves as inspiration for where I’m taking this.

Sidenote: I began writing a review for the new Rick Ross album, but decided not to post it for numerous reasons. I might share my thoughts on it down the road in a different format. I have A LOT of great ideas that I’m going to be introducing down the road. Stay tuned!

Hope everyone is having a safe and blessed weekend. Keep seeking Truth.

THE L.A.S.E.R.S. MANIFESTO

To Every Man, Woman & Child…

1. We Want An End To The Glamorization Of Negativity In The Media.

2. We Want An End To Status Symbols Dictating Our Worth As Individuals.

3. We Want A Meaningful And Universal Education System.

4. We Want Substance In The Place Of Popularity.

5. We Will Not Compromise Who We Are To Be Accepted By The Crowd.

6. We Want The Invisible Walls That Separate By Wealth, Race & Class To Be Torn Down.

7. We Want To Think Our Own Thoughts.

8. We Will Be Responsible For Our Environment.

9. We Want Clarity & Truth From Our Elected Officials Or They Should Move Aside.

10. We Want Love Not Lies.

11. We Want An End To All Wars. Foreign & Domestic (Violence).

12. We Want An End To The Processed Culture Of Exploitation, Over-Consumption & Waste.

13. We Want Knowledge, Understanding & Peace.

14. WE WILL NOT LOSE BECAUSE WE ARE NOT LOSERS, WE ARE LASERS!!!

Lasers are the opposite of losers. Lasers are shining beams of light that burn through the darkness of ignorance. Lasers shed light on injustice and inequality. Losers stand by and let things happen. Lasers act and shape their own destinies. Lasers find meaning and direction in the mysteries all around them. Lasers stand for love and compassion. Lasers stand for peace. Lasers stand for progression. Lasers are revolutionary.
Lasers Are The Future.

We’re Not Losers…We Are L.A.S.E.R.S.!!!

Love Always Shines Every-time Remember 2 Smile!

May 12, 2010 Leave a comment

Here’s Pt. 2 of Okayplayer’s interview with Lupe Fiasco. This time around he discusses his love for the Houston hip-hop scene (the inspiration for “Hip Hop Saved My Life”), his current feelings about the MTV Hottest MC list, and his new crew, All City Chess Club (See my post on Leaders of the New School). Look for the All City Chess Club collab on the I’m Beamin‘ remix.

In case you missed it, you can watch Part 1 here.

Interview: OkayplayerTV Talks To Lupe Pt. 1

May 10, 2010 Leave a comment

One of my favorite blogs/sites Okayplayer sat down with Lupe Fiasco to discuss his new album Lasers, his music leaking, his love for fashion, and more.

A few months ago I heard him say that the album was done, but I saw an interview recently where he said he’s still working on it and has plans to release the album late summer/fall.
