Americans reach end resulting in defeat!

This world cup tour for the American woman was truly a wonderful experience. The American woman managed to re spark the country's look on soccer and everyone was on the band wagon. The woman went through some intense battles but eventually lost to the world cup winners playing for Japan. Now I have to wait till fall and hope that a football season will be featured.

How to Love....Understand it better

Snooze button (poem)

Im burning in the inside,
Internal bleeding,
My lungs don't expand,
My heart hates beating,
Im less of a man cause I scrap peas, while you congressman has all the cabbage for your needs. 
I'm a premature baby who can't afford the care, as the healthy congressman let's me be declared. 
My issue was deferred.
He just hit the snooze button.

I've killed for you,
Covered up for you, 
Not just one term served,
I've done quite a few
I make the steps in your place,
You ll make me fight pointless battles to save face.
Finally I'm home,
One limb less,
Can't get a job,
Diagnose with post-dramatic stress.
Congressman I've done every thing see,
But why when I'm come home you dont care about me?
my issue was ignored.
He just hit the snooze button.

Black man I am. I done seen it all,
When I stood strong,
I stood tall,
Till the man came in,
And made me fall.
Since then I've been a slave,
Physically then,
Mental now.
But I have the upper hand,
I'll tell you how,
See the congressman has always sleep on me!
If that wasn't true I'd not be free,
See the congressman has always sleep on me!
If that wasn't true then who be Ali? 
See the congressman would be smart not to sleep on me. 
Im the Boss now,
My first initial is B
Like the first in my skin.
Change is needed now,
I demand it my friends,
Let's make America great
let's fight till The end!

We allow the congress to sleep on our needs and simply hit the snooze button to defer us.
Say with me,
Congressman don't sleep on me.

The sound of aggravating noise wakes him up. He grabbed his phone and hits the snooze button.

We can't expect others not to snooze on us, when we in fact snooze on ourselves.

"I wonder" (poem)...explicit

I wonder why I don't give fuck! Is it cause I'm a running number?
Ill let your thoughts plunder.
Roam into the rooms of the lobes being used for operation.
My pockets are pumping stations for wealthy men who give on rare occasion and take like sex sensations.
Stealing happiness for greed, but I should give a Fuck?
Cut my eyes out so I can't see you taint my women.
Burn my ears so they can't be force feed with optimistic bullshit.
Leave my taste for the sake of mercy.
Who cares for what they don't believe in?
I lost comfort from my government six years ago.
Surprise punch in the face,
I expected a low blow.
I don't give a fuck because I plan to change this damnation's reign.
Politic or lunatic.
This black man has had!
I don't give a fuck because my love is deserved and I don't do one nighters

Fowl to the Game

An 18-year-old Martin Luther King Jr. High School graduate was declared one of the best freestyle rappers in the country.

Detroiter Saffal Tall, better known by his stage name FowL, won a national freestyle competition judged by another Detroiter no stranger to rap battles himself: Eminem.

The "Red Bull EmSee: The Road to 8 Mile National Championship" brought out rappers from hip-hop hot spots like New York City and the Bay Area to lesser-known enclaves like Austin, Texas. After battling across several cities nationwide, the final battle was fought out on familiar stomping grounds: Saint Andrew's Hall in downtown Detroit.

"I brought it back to the crib....thank God," FowL, a student at Michigan State University, tweetedafter winning the competition.

Last night's display brought out a few notable local names, including Trick Trick, Royce da 5'9, Marv Won, Elzhi (of Slum Village) and Black Milk. And a few national names were there, too -- Bun B (who had judged earlier competitions in his Houston hometown and New York City), DJ Jazzy Jeff, Xzibit and Skillz.

Eminem, quiet, reserved and media-shy for the festivities, judged the three-round battle with producers Alchemist and Mr. Porter.

"The people that come out and support these crowds are incredible," Bun B told MLive. "They're performing extremely well under pressure. This whole experience has been a class act."

Before the competition, Bun B said the rappers in New York City were "hard to beat." Ironically, the final round saw FowL and an NYC rapper, DNA, face off.

Here's how it worked: The eight finalists paired off and fought three rounds until it boiled down to two. In the first round, each rapper was shown five images on a projection screen and required to use them in their freestyle.

One of Austin rapper Franchyze's images was a picture of Bob Saget. "We had an orgy in your home/it was a full house."

DNA had a boy scout for one of his images. "You a bitch dressed like a boy scout."

judges-eminem.jpgJudges Mr. Porter, Alchemist and Eminem
Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin and Gwyneth Paltrow were all bitches too, by the way. And sometimes your mother or your girlfriend.

Headkrack (yes, the sidekick from "The Rickey Smiley Morning Show"was a contestant) caught a bad reaction from the crowd with a picture of a lion. "You about to have a bad record like the Lions." Instant boos.

"My mom's from Detroit," Franchyze told MLive before the battle. "She's from the east side, on Van Dyke. She told me, "don't diss the D, now. Don't say negative things about Detroit.'"

In Round 2, each rapper was given an ongoing series of random words they had to use in the freestyle. Amalgamation. Obama. Judge Judy. Thing. Captain Lou Albano. And so on. It tripped a few of the rappers up, as they only had 60 seconds to show off.

By the last round, after a beatboxing intermission from the show's host D.R.E.S. tha BEATnik, DNA and FowL squared off in a no-holds barred battle. No words, no images -- just flow.

"Who would you rather listen to?/someone who spits the truth/or a n**** with a missing tooth?" FowL said, drawing the biggest reaction from the crowd.

DNA's attempt to pander to the Detroit crowd -- "Everybody from the 313/Put your hands in the air and follow me" -- fell on deaf ears, and his 60-second rap was cut short by the booing crowd. Eminem and the other panelists unanimously crowned FowL the winner.

FowL, who was the youngest in the competition, will now head into a studio to work with producers of his choice.

"I'm glad we did this," D.R.E.S. told MLive after the competition. "I'm glad we brought this to Detroit, of all places. This is love."

Detroit's own Slaughterhouse closed the show with a half-hour set. Here's a snippet, courtesy of YouTube user acehole411:

Who's Pac Div? ...Look & Learn more

Pac Div: The Series Trailer from Pac Div on Vimeo.

As Hip Hop attempts to regain its definition, fans have already defined it with Southern California trio, Pac Div.  The group consists of brothers, Like and Mibbs, along with longtime friend BeYoung.  The three came together in high school.  While new talents strayed towards microwave music that trades quantity for quality, Pac Div crafted an original sound timeless sound influenced by the golden era of hip hop.
In 2006, Pac Div released a thematic mix tape. The tracks chronicled day-jobs, trying to appeal to the fairer sex without fat pockets, restoring a Black presence in Hip Hop, and carefully coifed wardrobes amidst the pursuit of glory. The results were jarring, the unsigned group landed on the pages of many magazines,  Vapors, Urb, Source, XXL, Billboard, Rolling Stones, and 944 Magazine.  As well as a large internet presence followed.
During the course of the group’s development, Hip Hop superstars began to notice.  With Myspace love alone, Pharrell Williams of The Neptunes reached out to affirm that Pac Div is making innovative and fun music.  After that, a chance meeting with The Roots’ Questlove in a Los Angeles record store led to a passed demo – which shockingly then led to the drummer personally calling the group to also extend support. In Addition to Snoop Dogg shouting out on one of his songs, the group received approval from Talib Kweli, 9th Wonder, and Ludacris.  Rather than crutch these endorsements on album covers and Myspace banners, the trio matter-of-factly reminded fans that this was no overnight success.
Offers from major labels followed, the group found a home with Universal Motown Records and readying for their debut release, Grown Kid Syndrome late 2009.  The album delightfully forgets the tangents rap music has taken in the mainstream and simply affirms that good music is timeless.  Pac Div is crafting their album are focused on making sure their live show is well…live. The group has toured domestically and internationally with heavy hitters and tastemakers alike, Nas, Q-tip, Busta Rhymes, ICE- T, and Ludacris.
California Hip Hop is restructuring in the second half of the ’00.  Styles, faces, and crews may change, these three young men remind us that it is, was, and forever will be the Pacific Division.
Pac Div is currently finishing their album and will be making appearances at SXSW opening for The Roots in April.  They are managed by Christopher Watkins for Ch’rewd Management and booking agent: Cara Lewis (Domestic & Canada) – The William Morris Agency.

What are the most common oral health problems in women?

 Aside from cavities, the most common oral health problems in women include periodontitis, which is a chronic and advanced disease of the periodontal supporting tissues in the mouth, gum sensitivity and swelling, gingivitis which is an inflammation of the gums, dry mouth, and canker sores. If you are a woman, you experience times in your life when your hormones fluctuate. This puts you more at risk for these oral health issues than men. These times in your life include puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause.  And during each of these separate times whenhormonal levels rise and fall, oral health issues can begin or worsen.

The most important oral health problem in women is gum disease, putting them at risk of a host of other related systemic health problems, in addition to teeth loss often after child bearing. Old wives tales believed that the "baby robs the mother's calcium" leading to tooth loss and osteoporosis, and "a mother loses a tooth for each baby she has," have, instead, been proven to be more a function of periodontal (gum) health, as well as hormone and mineral balances. Pregnancy gingivitis, an inflammation of the gums during pregnancy, can lead to gum disease damage causing loss of bone support to the teeth if left untreated. Hormonal changes during menopause can also do the same.

Sade Cru

Talent Girl (Poem)

Talent Girl

Dedicated to Sade Cru for inspiring me.

Natures gift to race
A change of pace
A lover of the world
Talent Girl

She's a pearl
Humbly thinks she's an oyster
But god can drop her in my shovel
I wouldn't mind the loiter

Her pride is motivating
Her drive is inspirational
She can have my heart
Start rentovating

Curly hair for the wind to hug
Red skin glazed with love
Eyes with eagle vision
Her thoughts come from Gods decision

Her name moves like lillies in the plain brees
Waiting for her breath
Then my body at ease

Earths only angel
Love her I don't
Need her I do
Lose her I won't

Jumping into Housing! Whats fair about it?

It began in New Orleans, Louisiana. The idea that hard working people in our cities should be afforded fair, reasonably priced housing. Since one of the first housing projects – St. Thomas, which was built in the early 40's – America has seen an ample growth in housing developments and acts/laws of mandating fair housing. Obviously, humans aren’t perfect, and issues of fairness have become evident. In New Orleans, Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita were catalyst to the ongoing fight for fair housing. Currently in New Orleans, two major issues have collided to cause one main problem. The low capacity of affordable housing and low job opportunities in the city especially near affordable housing projects. The biggest fight for fair housing advocates right now is trying to implement reasonable conditions for creating new affordable housing under the new master plan. While the master plan currently is just one big open-ended outline that was created to be filled in, the people of New Orleans are owed the efforts of Fair housing. That’s where Greater New Orleans Fair Housing Action Center comes in.

Their most recent victory came just this summer as illustrated in this article by Jordan Flaherty.
Similar to this case is the Havens vs. Coleman case. For a description of that legal action, click here.

So here’s my take on all of this: I know I’m not blind, and I've yet to encounter a logical disconnect between affordable fair housing and successful favorable communities. “Property Value,” “Safety” and “Character of Community” are the buzz-words of opponents to affordable housing and where I detect opposition, but at the same time how can anyone not see “assumptions” as the controlling variable.

For example, the common assumption of a housing development is there will be an increase in violence in the area. How true is this? Before Katrina the developments did have high concentrations of violence but was it in the developments, around the developments, or caused by the residents? And did violence in New Orleans magically disappear after the Big 4 disappeared? Is the root cause for the violence a lack of opportunity? Many of the younger generation descendants of tenants were less educated and for lack of a better word, were lost. A lot of those people gravitated towards violent and criminal acts because they knew no better and nothing was given to them. I understand you must tighten up your own bootstraps but how do you do that when they were never given to you? The reason I bring this up is if we were to introduce developments into neighborhoods with opportunities for education, jobs, and easy transportation, couldn't we eliminate that threat of violence? Once you’ve addressed the issue of violence, the “property value” concern diminishes. It makes since that the higher the violence rate the lower the value of the property, because who wants to pay a lot to move into a dangerous community.

And as for this “Character of Community” concern, in my opinion it is inflated as a barrier to keep new people out. It’s just, plain NIMBYism otherwise known as Not in my back Yard. Many New Orleans area residents will do almost anything in their power to keep new comers out the community. It’s discriminatory and cannot be supported as logical.

Yes it's a storm of conditions and concerns but I have to think that I am not the only one that believes this is a childish pandora of paranoia. People's lives aren’t getting any better but as long as the communities don't have to introduce new housing units, it's okay? The ESPN channel has a football segment called "C'Mon MAN!" where they show big mistakes in the game. As I listen to the reasons in opposition to fair and affordable housing developments, all I can think is ......."C'Mon Man!"

I'll leave it at that to allow for some deep reflection. More To Come.

Beauty at it's Finest

My Team

I noticed how often I'm spreading the word and getting people attention. I also noticed how many people in this city alone who are trying to make it. Well each and everyone of the those individuals understand that nothing is giving. I've chosen some talented people, given them a classification as my artist and will now publicize every thing they do because I feel they are unique in their trade and strongly devoted to their cause. This is where you the reader can keep up with them in one central location. So Enjoy!

John Stewart vs. Bill O'Reily

It's Dee-1's Turn

The major reasons I support Dee-1. He's clean. Not afraid to criticize for the better. Fresh with ideas. From New Orleans. EDUCATED!

Dee-1's "It's my turn" is the perfect symbolization of Rappers today. Especially in New Orleans! The video is great. All the rappers lined up with the same clothes really proved the failing part of rap. Dee-1 really stood out to me with a message like that. I hope you enjoy like I did.

Scene on "Wall Street"

Everything said in this review is simply opinion. Sensitivity is not necessary! This is the thoughts of one person to another! Now enjoy!

Rapper Dow "Stockz" Jones has hit the market with his new mixtape. So is it worth listening to? Well check out this review courtesy of All Things Censored!

Songs were downloaded out of order so this is the order I heard them.

1. Arrows
Beat: 4/5
Lyrics: 4/5
Overall: 4/5

"Wall Street" starts out with this cool vibe jazz/hip hop piece. Not Sure why it follows the intro seeming that it doesn't relate to money as much as it does females. Main issue, minor but still notable, normally the intro can connect all the songs on a mixtape but here this song doesn't necessarily speak for the mixtape and let me know what the message is. Great relaxation song!

2. Cool Ish ft. Dizzy Millz
Beat: 3/5
Lyrics: 4/5
Feature: 5/5
Overall: 4/5

" I label studio sessions as tux days, cuz its murder i'm assertive with my funk shway."

Nice interesting follow up from anysong. The beat doesn't relate with the last song or the one that follows. I did like the lyrics! Deezy Millz was a perfect feature. His vibe matched Stockz, It worked perfect for the song, and kept the song on the upside.

3. Dead Shadow Valley
Beat: 4/5
Overall: 5/5

This song definantly should of followed Arrows and it did! I do like Stocks ability to tell stories and not say bullshit that doesn't apply to him. I also really like this song because he does comment on political failures. Real Life stuff for a real relevant song. I can relate to this the most. Thats why I rated this a straight 5!

4. First Nemesis ft. Nic High
Beat: 2/5
Lyrics: 4/5
Overall: 3/5

Its understood that Stocks lyrical capacity is good. Now i'm looking at the small things like song speed, message, etc. This song was a low point for me. It sounds like steinmart music mixed with a jazz hall where u talk over the music. Very bland as far as music goes. Too long and uninteresting. Maybe cause it was to slow.

5. Hard In the paint
Beat:2/5 old
Lyrics: 2/5
Overall: 2/5

I grade low due to the fact that this song is extremely old for this new mixtape. I thought it was ok when first heard but as for now the mixtape could of down with out this.

6. Its Live ft. Marx De Lux
Beat: 3/5
Lyrics: 2/5
Feature: 3/5
Overall: 3/5

The reason for this rating is because no matter what this song slips out of my interest point. Not that entertaining as the other songs. Feature was the reason I came back. In the hook for example.

7. Money Never Sleeps
Beat: 4/5
Lyrics: 4/5
Overall: 4/5

"Money never sleeps, Broke is a joke, I ain't been funny in some weeks."

Bravo! When I think "Wall Street" in my head. I here this! Enough Said!

8. Move in silence
Beat: 3/5
Lyrics: 3/5
Overall: 3/5

I have to be tone death! That Piano key in the beat is dreadful! It ruined the song for me. Lyrics are consistent with rest of mixtape. Damn! that key is back. The track is nice as far as lyrical content. Not the best on the tape. I'd skip the track.

9. Never letting Go

Beat: 4/5
Lyrics: 3/5
Overall 4/5

Ok this has me back on good note. The beat is a nice blast in the house jam! Beat is good! Lyrics starting to become average only because the style isn't changing much which is good but nothing is amazing like talking about it! Not the whole track tho.

10. Smooth Vibe ft. Airborne & Marx De Lux
Beat: 3/5
Lyrics: 3/5
Feature: 4/5
Overall: 3/5

The first song which connects with its Title truly. This really is a smooth vibe song. I could ride to this song. Lyrical content not to amazing. Great feature voice! Really complements the track! Airborne's lyrics are the best on the track but not over powering.

11. Tap Out ft. JustWorthy
Beat: 4/5
Lyrics: 5/5
Feature: 5/5
Overall: 5/5

Really ran this chill azz beat! Nice transitions, movements, etc!
Will be running this on a playlist. Featured artist did his thing also! GOOD MUSIC!

12. Too High
Beat: 4/5
Lyrics: 3/5
Overall: 3/5

No real game changer. Simple, usual, consistent. This track is good to hear but I wouldn't be affect by it ( negatively or positively).

13. All Falls Down
Beat: 4/5
Lyrics: 3/5
Overall: 3/5

When taking a Kanye beat you got run it! Stockz ... Jogged it. Kept up with pace but I wasn'tt like "ohhh shit!! This cold!" Not bad. It just would be better if song is run harder or droped honestly. Also this could work for what "Wall Street" the mixtape stands for in my eyes but in Stockz it may be different.

14. Blue & White
Beat: 3/5
Lyrics: 4/5
Overall: 4/5

More enjoyable than black and yellow. Honestly! Its hyper! Also he touches hoes political faults and makes them points for music. Love it! I'm tired of this beat but he has revamped my patience for it!

15. The Trip
Beat: 4/5
Lyrics: 4/5
Overall: 4/5

This song is a dipp into something new. The beat is irregular but thats why it's so unique which works here. This song is really cold how it transitions to the "damn i'm trippin phase." We all felt it before! H tells stories and I can really see myself in the song. Like if my life was a music video with Stockz as the soundtrack!

The Lows

1. Using other artist Beats
2. Too consistent (only one song where I felt Stockz really stepped out his comfort zone "The Trip" need more of that.)
3. Mixtape name had me looking in a different direction.
4. Song vibes were inconsistent.

The Highs

1. Very consistent
2. The best features I've heard on a mixtape in a while.
3. Ability to keep me interested!

Best Songs:
1. Death Shadow Valley
2. Tap Out
3. Arrows

Worst Songs:
1. Hard in the Paint
2. Move in Silence
3. All falls Down

Mixtape: 4/5

This is a must listen too mixtape. New artist coming up! Lets make it happen fast!!
