Another joint from Africa native K’naan. It must be a very proud moment in his career when he can say he performed for the World Cup in South Africa. If you heard the Distant Relatives I am sure you heard of K’naan. He has been doing some major things with his unique sound. I wish him the best in his career
A wonderfully produced song for the world cup. I have to say that I really like this song a lot. It is very universal as far as being able to cross boundaries of language, culture, and presonal preference. I see Shakira rocking that yellow and green on her shirt. Hope she is representing her “favorite” team Brazil because they are taking it this year.
A new ting from di Trini artist. As expected it wicked and have a great message. I cannot express how much I feel that this is of great quality. I already have ideas of where to put this. I think this is something that I need on wax.
Everybody no matter where you are take a moment and say free Buju out loud or scream it in your mind let your intension feel felt to the world. There are people selling free Buju Shirts. The money goes to help his council. This is their site. Feel free to do your part and read up on him. This is the same thing that Happened with Jah Cure just in a different country and different circumstances.
Enough of the literature this is a song that will touch your soul and let you see the man that Buju is now. This is a marvelous song. So rich in sound and smooth in texture. I am checking to see if there are any ways to purchase this song with him getting the benefit. If you can wait before buying this I will have an answer posted on the facebook.
B Side: Not an Easy Road
A new tune from Gyptian. It would be a tough tune if he wasn’t using the auto tune. The only reason I have an issue with it is not because Jay-z deaded that thing called auto tune but because he can actually sing. This song really states what every one else is saying. The same problem in New York is the same problem in Jamaica. “The people need more money.” I know plenty of people that commit crimes not because they want to but because they have to. If I had more money I can bring you guys the site that you would really want but they just keep raising the prices of things. Why can we not got to the higher end schools without the money if we don’t have the knowledge? Should the governments issue not be to enrich the masses to make more money themselves?
This greed and lust for money creates a divide between classes. Once the well begins runs dry there is less and less that trickles down. Now that the US taught several other places how to do what most of our consumers purchase those places are flourishing while the backbone of our country rusts and falls apart. They would rather give that country money because the companies in them selves make more money. It is great for that country that is growing and making money but when the elite of their country does the same thing to widen the gap in the classes we have to see that we the hard working people of every country and race need to unite.
Instead of promoting graffiti artists to become fashion designers, car designers, animators, advertisers they take the canvas away from the artist making his crime equal to violent crime which hurts both the tax payers as well as the other people involved with their lives such as their children and wife or baby mama. Next they will be after former graffiti artists turned tattoo artist. This situation doesn’t at all per industry. When you speak of cars and people building and racing them if get arrested or their licence taken away that takes away money from his pocket for just having a hobby. If these people were educated in school about credit or even their parents maybe they would have the credit to open up that garage. We as people of the struggle need to support other people of the struggle. Why buy a Nautica shirt that you could have gotten from a Marc Ecko. If Gyptian you love buy him CD, see him in concert, and if you don’t like CD’s buy it in whichever format you like. I still buy vinyls.
