“ “WHO’S GONNA TAKE THE WEIGHT???”

…I’m a 90’s Hip-Hop guy; no apologies. I am also a huge, long-time fan of the GURU (RIP) and PREMIER, most notably known as the collective, GANG STARR. But before, I get started on my opinionated BS (high-end, cow manure, thank you!), allow me this disclaimer: This post isn’t so much about them; however, watching the video for “Who’s Gonna Take the Weight?” did inspire this post a GREAT deal.
[WHEW!]…ok, so I am listening to the guys over at Dead End Hip Hop discussing the comments made by Vince Staples, about the 90’s. Intriguing prospective given by each member, I will say; however, I found myself really siding with KINGE. Again, I do note that I am biased because I am a 90’s HIP-HOP guy. KINGE makes an interesting point in that he doesn’t understand why people don’t praise that era [of Hip Hop] as much as they do. I didn’t understand it either. …and here’s why…


TRUE STORY…TALKING ALL THAT JAZZ!

…my dad played the absolute HELL out of Kenny G when he came to pick us [my brother and I] up for visits. That exposure for me had me thinking that Kenny G was the epitome of what a jazz artist should be…hair and all. That was, until, I got to college, started working for the school’s jazz station [88.5 FM WJSU], and had the audacity to play Kenny G on air. BLASPHEMY! After surviving the onslaught of phone calls from listeners threatening my life, I was advised to toss DUOTONES [Kenny G’s album] like a Frisbee very quickly, and very far, because it was not JAZZ [my life depended on it]. My program director challenged me to dig deeper into traditional jazz and try to understand what and WHY the listeners liked traditional jazz [my job depended on it]. So, what started as a simple question to listeners [Why do you love traditional jazz?], ended up being such a turning point in my audible palate. As a matter of fact, the sampling of jazz greats in early 90’s HIP-HOP, definitely played an intricate part in my jazz appreciation. Hearing sampled bits, pieces, and chucks of drums, bass, melodies, etc. scattered, covered, and chunked like Waffle House hash browns [yum!] …and then being able to reference the complete works from the original artists, afforded me a deeper appreciation for jazz. So much of an appreciation that I truly began to understand why listeners wanted that REAL SH*T!
…to KINGE’s point, I was not there or even born when Miles Davis released Kinda Blue, but I have that as one of my all time favorite jazz albums. I was not there when John Coltrane recorded Giant Steps, however, it’s rare that I go weeks without sitting back and listening to it. That goes for any Marvin Gaye, Motown, 60’s and 70’s music in general. I learned to appreciate what I consider great music and great artists in taking time to partake of their art. I guess I have Hip Hop to partially thank for that…


A DUDE FROM BOSTON AND A GUY FROM TEXAS…

…maybe…maybe today’s artist does not understand that creativity made hip-hop such an infectious art form. It’s like the difference between kids that grew up playing outside versus kids that grew up playing video games. It’s a totally different and foreign experience when one is forced to really use his/her imagination and create something that one would consider enjoy and ‘fun’.
Think about it from this perspective…a dude from Boston and a guy from Texas meet through mutual acquaintances in New York and form a group. They form this entire bit…logo…stage names…the whole kit and caboodle. Now through their process of sharing ideas, they stumble on this guy from James Brown’s band, named Maceo…yeah, the horn guy… and he has his own recording. The song is called PARRTY and this guy Maceo is blowing his ass off just grooving to this funky-ass beat. Well, the guy from Texas is listening to this record, and hears it differently. He begins to take bits, pieces, and chunks from the record and placed them into his magical musical machine. Well, this magical music machine takes the chosen bits, pieces, and chunks and forms this different song that is fresh and new and groovy, too. Now, this guy from Texas [he’s very creative] takes Maceo’s horn and pulls the record back and forth on his record player, and creates this eerie looped horn sound on top of the beat that he already created with the magical music machine. GENIUS! He then asks his friend, the guy from Boston, to recite, rhythmically, over this new song that he created. [MIND BLOWN]… well, me telling you this will not help you to appreciate what you hear for yourself. Here’s the link…enjoy.

#collegetours. Second stop of the day? Georgia Southern. Tucked nicely away in Statesboro, GA. Gotta hand it to them…they almost had me because their cafeteria is AWESOME! No ID? No problemo…let’s hit you with the retinal scan…and (get this) come as often as you like…plus you get guest passes (freakin’ Guest Passes!?!)…did I mention the daily choices? Hibachi…TexMex…Vegan…Desserts…Starbucks…Chick-fil-A…etc.
Oh yeah…the campus is beautiful and they have great academic programs…and they have a COOK OUT across the street!
MMMM…FOOD.

#collegetours.
Savannah State. Ayana was a cool tour guide. Still didn’t answer my question about the number of bodies in the marsh. Speaking of the marsh, join me for Spoken Word on the Marsh, where I debut my spoken word piece, BIRD is the WORD. Learned the terms ‘up top’, 'down bottom’, and 'the circle’.
Great atmosphere. Good people.

#reflections.
That’s me in the middle, currently reflecting on my most recent ‘yesterday’ experience…positive over negative and to speak it into existence…#SpeakLife (what up Jawz!)…continue to be creative…stay fly and fly high like those #EAGLES…by the way, Jerry may want to close that roof with all the bird droppings on his team [Falcons, Seahawks, Eagles]…though I lost my hard drive, it didn’t detour my drive…ah, you’ll get that later…there are lessons in losses and the opportunities to become better…

Somewhat different now…creating film props for a short film I am shooting tomorrow…er, later today. Can’t lie…sometimes I think that I am too talented for my own good…[shrugs].

…funny. I had the entire album online (itunes, spotify, etc.) and decided to take it down after a year…that was April 2015. Not because I thought that the album sucked or anything…it’s kinda like that Badu thing…I guess I am kinda sensitive about my i$h…and now I get responses on one of the most popular tracks from that album like the one you see in the photo. Maybe, just maybe, I will start to believe my own hype…yes, HYPE. LOL. SoundCloud:912 James Street Productions
