Hip-Hop is…coming home. It is a remembrance of our original truth, existence, and creative culture. In the moment, given to remember that we are light; free. Style is a verse expression. Be you. Backed with the foundation of indigenous community. Dance openly as the sparks of one flame. Rhyme and uncover time capsules of scriptural excellence- in the original tongue at the time of delivery. Lyrically one of a kind- every time. It opens.
Hip- Hop is happening right now. The 40th Anniversary of Hip-Hop celebrated the blossom of consciousness that occurred around the early 70s, in the Bronx, New York. It never dies- as it is constantly being reborn- honored since the beginning of time.
One microphone and a voice or a circle of voices. Truth spoken in the rhythm and rhyme locking in the paradigm of Love driven Life. Like sculpting the ether into words- thus continuing to help shape the Divine. Creator will. Guru. The word manifests and with it we are blessed with the choice to vibrate light eternally.
Thank you Hip-Hop, Spirituality and Empowerment. Many all continue to inspire those who are called.

Civil rights attorney and politician Percy Sutton has died.
The son of a slave, Sutton first moved to New York City after serving with the Tuskegee Airmen in World War II.
Sutton broke barriers by serving as a New York State Assemblyman before taking over as Manhattan Borough President in 1966 — the state’s highest-ranking black elected official at the time.
He also mounted two unsuccessful campaigns for US Senate and city mayor.
Sutton rescued the famed Apollo Theater in 1981, by purchasing and renovating it for a quarter million dollars.
Reverend Al Sharpton is expected to hold a news conference at the famed theater later today.

This video was created to inspire young at-risk African-Americans not to fall prey to some of the problems they face in society. The “Master of Darkness” represents that abstract concept of evil that has the potential to reside in the consciousness of mankind.
This video should not to be used to divide people (Black & White).
This video should not be used to criticize all aspects of hip-hop culture.
This video should not be used to allow the rest of society to escape from their responsibility, to help with financial & academic support.
If used properly, this video will allow our youth to see some of the horrific conditions that their ancestors fought through and some of the horrific conditions they face today.
