Legendary Exits Re-visited

In Communication, Griot, Movies, Music, Networking, News, TV Shows on September 24, 2017 at 3:40 pm

Biggie & Tupac are still gone.
They left a gang of music & prophetic quotes to carry on.

Not just in one or two — but in many songs
Though in a  few we’ve got two that will explore some of the wrongs

that went along and may have co-facilitated the icons earthly exits;
Therefore WHO SHOT BIGGIE & TUPAC was destined to be broadcasted.

It’s going down on FOX and will be hosted by Soledad O’Brien and Ice-T.
I’m Qui
Rest assured this vibe will include recollects from  Fab5 during this re-examining of history.

Have a seat & tune in. We shall see…

Hustlers Convention 2015Let me drop this on ya
– it’s in the air
I caught Chuck D’s “Hustlers Convention” piece –
my heritage on broadcast – a reeled square.

It was a Friday afternoon when I landed on the STARZ BLACK station
and heard a few words that made a spirited-soul relation

to my thirsty ears.
Oh dear
I almost squeezed out a tear…

I was so excited.
Words rhymed on a dime
and I did not write it.

THE HUSTLERS CONVENTION — when first I heard of it
was the day I met Fab5Freddy – I rank no chance meet above it.

He shared the history of it all and I loved it.
He encouraged me to embraced my GRIOT root – so I )))HUGGED((( it.

I was shocked to see Chuck D’s documented revelation of events…
It’s been 10-years since Fab taught me — #GriotKnowledge has been on ferment.

On an average of 3-days a week I AirDrop here to vent whatever vibe may be.
I’m 12-years strong singing this Griot song
that has been broadcasted on various www [dot] Qui ‘s

Ooo wee! It’s been a blast and I ain’t stopping
this weekend was prime for the pickin’ & HUSTLER CONVENTION copping.

Knowledge was dropping y’all… and if you didn’t know
don’t feel left behind, I learned about it on the East Coast.

Check your satellite listings of STARZ BLACK if you want to see 
the orign of the DNA that seeded the #Griot writes of Qui.

I’m trying to tell ya kinfolk, via this Monday Air Drop.
You’re getting it on good authority and it’s okay to cop.

Go ahead and peep the trailer and get a whift of the vibe
and if you don’t have STARZ, YouTube will give you the reel for a real a low price.

Man I dug the knowledge dropped – it was all hype and no jive,
I’m Qui
rendering Monday’s AirDrop a little sharper and amp’d to Go LIVE.

GOOGLE’Y Eyed

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Technology, TV Shows on August 11, 2017 at 4:15 am

Today’s GOOGLE search engine is indeed ART vetted —
so I had to drop by to share w/you a very cool message:

Fab5 hit me up the other day while I was “script birth” sweatin’
And said “Click on the Google icon during the weekend of August 11th.”

I yielded the anticipation towards art and was indeed thrilled to execute and learn
about the turn tabled viewpresented like only Fab could do. Click the icon, it’s your turn:

google-hip-hop-44yr-bday-icon

Click icon from Google page for full experience.

Fab’s groove is authentically true and multi-culturally tried.
He ‘done took it to another level and got folks looking GOOGLE’Y Eyed.

Still the tale
remains to reveal
the Virgo takes it all in stride.

THAT’S WHAT UP 👋🏾 My man, Fab5!🖐🏾

Just as sweet as the Google treat is
I’m also pretty stoked about the art of The O List.

It’s delicious and I mean it –
Please tell me that you’ve seen it?

The Layered Look

A few yummy things we think are just great!

And so it’s Friday and Fabulous opportunity is nigh,

I’m happy to open my eyes and feel pretty good today.
I’m happy to see you here – still dropping by my place.

Thank you. I accept your company with appreciation and grace
You are good reason to borrow The O List to spruce up the place.

Another Fine WEDNESDAY

In Communication, Griot, Movies, Networking, News, Self Improvement, Video on April 5, 2017 at 4:29 am

Greenleaf-cast-2017-season2And I’m feeling very much like 32
It’s SPRING time and I’m on the take –
not sure what on Earth I’m going to do

with this sunny side of me that is clearly showing.
I’m over here reading, writing, learning and knowing.

I’m soaking up information that I didn’t know yesterday.
The sapeosexual that I am, this research equates to play.

Hey-ey! It’s Wednesday baby and I’ve got a feeling of Dallas, TX in my hair.
I’m quite a few miles out of her radius’ frame but my attitude doesn’t care.

greenleaf_family.pngI’ve got K104 blasting through my speakers, via an app and bluetooth on my phone.
I’m rolling through the streets, I’m Phoenix-deep, but the DF-Dub is all in my dome.

Monday seems like it was just yesterday — yet it looks like the weekend’s about to begin.
We’re atop of the hump, fix your posture – no slump, It’s not Friday, but WEDNESDAY, again.

What’cha got up for today? Be it all sweet and no beef
for later tonight on channel OWN, you can indulge in some GREENLEAF.

Yes, honey child.
GREENLEAF is back – you know it’s gone be wild.

UNDERGROUND will backdoor this awesome show and still new at season 2’s begin.
Underground isn’t on channel OWN, but rather on WGN.

Go ahead and DVR them in. Both are pretty good company.
I’m just a writer, a dome exciter – these shows are like friends to me.
You ever talk back to the TV? 🙂

I do, and all of the time.
Sometimes it’s a flat comment – sometimes it’s a rhyme.

Today more of the same will be on shine, I’ll be nail-biting on bended knees,
I’m Qui
on Another Fine Wednesday, join me later on for familial reflections of you and me.

Artful Notation

Just yesterday as I was on my way, sashaying and being productively steady
I received an informative text from the international and domestically cool: Fab 5 Freddy.

Beyond saying,”Yo Qui! What’s up?,” and spitting a few more verses that made me think
he split my wig with info of his current gig when he shot me this WJLA link:

fab5freddy-mcyan-wildstyle-exhibition-april2017.png

Fab5Freddy & MC Yan hang hip, historic and cultural ART in the SMITHSONIAN

http://wjla.com/features/good-morning-washington/street-artists-bring-unique-collaboration-kung-fu-wildstyle-to-the-smithsonian

Two very different, yet influential international icons
collaborating in art of hip and historic cultural sums.

Mmm and yum. Y’all know how I feel about adding good and solid content.
It seems that their art and cultural collab has alas, been SMITHSONIAN sent.

The WILDSTYLE EXHIBITION is on display in Washington, DC as I speak.
The a fore interview was pretty telling as well, click PLAY and take a peek.

Good shows, good art and good love are like shots of caffeine to me,

This Wednesday deserves a “Oui” for being so Fab and for tonights Greenleaf!

Dear Monday

In Communication, Griot, Networking, Self Improvement, Sports on November 28, 2016 at 4:42 am

I’d like to tell you a few things about me:
I like mystery, mystique and suspense — these are key.

black-like-me-film-poster

Black Friday required NO MELANIN darkening to #ComeUp on a good buy. 😀

I like the chase and the conquer then back to the chase.
I like it straight in my face, to the head – no chafe.

Life is stronger than any fermentation you could ever sip
Good Morning Dear Monday – let the goodness of your hours rip.

I don’t mind if it beats to the tune of my favorite Blues melody,
as long as the sharp spikes of lyrics on a linear are steamy and chique.

Unpredictable like me — unrelenting as a sapeosexual-she, Dear Monday,
take any existing mundane and toss it in as fuel for a more productive fun day.

After all, it’s CYBER MONDAY already, because we obviously didn’t get out all of our pay
when we set out to spend or to pretend on the weekend of Black Friday.

Yay! You can still catch that sell and give your bank balance hell, if that is your intent.
But me? I’ve done my part. I went out on Saturday and my $240 was spent. 😀

You’d be pleased to know that within that price – and I boast
are workout gear to carry me through the new year and 2 DALLAS COWBOYS coats.

Yes thermal-lined COATS! Not jackets! Black Friday was certainly a sport.
AZ is hot so I’ll wear these when next I visit cold heart-thumbnailNew York.

black-friday-come-up2016

Coats + electric fireplace = a Happy Qui!!  Coat Model = CupcakeChique

I’ll wear my coats when next I visit heart-thumbnailDallas.
At which time I’ll drop back in on “Jerry’s palace.”

Have you been to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX? It’s beautiful, good Lord.
Any game this season is a good visiting reason – Dak and DEM BOYS are Going HARD!

Dear Monday, I’m really on fire because, (well I’ll say it again)
on Thanksgiving, the Redskins were giving and THE COWBOYS took another WIN!!

I missed you this weekend — I cozied up by the fireplace
that is on my wall, an electronic install, perfect for a condo space.

Not to mention that my electronic fireplace yields me an option to see fire with no heat.
This little product is a direct come up from good ol’ Black Friday 2013.

My #ScriptWriting game has been crazy. I’m a major drama inventor.
I’m binding concepts of situations – yet, to soon share with my reel mentor.

Do you ever do that? Hoard eggs that could possibly embolden?
Well I’m over here “egg-laying,” fam – and I think quite a few are golden.

Fee-Fi-Fo-Fun!
I smell a journey of adventurous sums.

What have you got up today?
If you see me on the to and fro – tilt me ‘a nod’ or a “Hey-ey!

I’ll speak back if I don’t speak to you first.
You should respond to let me know that I my shout-out was heard.

You wouldn’t believe how many people do not speak back.

Nonsense. Bump that. I’m smiling at you at the next stop light.
I’m Qui
Dear Monday, I’m digging you baby; I’m juicing with writes…

and I love it. Muah!

And then there was LUKE CAGE

In Griot, Movies, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows on October 26, 2016 at 8:18 am

meet-luke-cageand I was like Hold up! Wait!” I appreciate a black man in my face who feels NO PAIN,
not even in the form of metal bullet tips from clips that reign.

Mike Colter is A-OK in this NETFLIX series.  Have you seen his work?
The writing alone is pretty strong and could invoke a Sapeosexual to twerk.

The relativity of the set, the scene the crew…
The relativity to my hood and the things that we do.

I saw the barber shop and pops – I saw the gun-toting thugs on the outside.
I saw Luke Cage shield a young customer from bullets on the night that Pops died.

In script – I was hurt, but this is what homage building is all about
The loss of Pops was the exact cost – needed to bring Super Hero LUKE CAGE out.

CULT Potential: STOUT. I love the way it’s all playing out.
With the way things are going-on near and around my home,
we could use a LUKE CAGE on the Phoenix route.

Superman and Batman aren’t the only ones that show up and turn out.
Do you subscribe to NETFLIX? Check what LUKE CAGE is all about.

Whether he’s at the jiz, in his crib or on the streets
Luke Cage is quite the view — even briefly in the sheets

He and the detective….I liked it.

Just when I thought I’d composed my 2016 list of series thrills from scripted page
I am introduced by Fab5Freddy, to this new fella LUKE CAGE.

Fab was on the set of,  when he hit me up to ‘hook & rope her,’
he said he was on the LUKE CAGE set with his friend Cheo Hodari Coker.

The series writer.
What an exciter!

The mind is a great find
and this one has a NETFLIX rewind.

I’m sitting here yielding my time
to Cokers writ like a 9 to 5.

Yep! Yep! Give me Five on the Black Hand Side – I’m loving every minute.
And to put another cherry on this treat, there’s a Fab Five cameo in it.

I reckon that’s why he was on set, it’s good to know good people everwhere.
The Unfair Advantage is just that – fantastically unfair. 🙂

Me? I’m hooked on the view. They’ve got me. I’m their chic!
I’m Qui
A LUKE CAGE – she and I’ve got a ‘thang with NETFLIX.

They’re on their –ish.

Around the way

In Communication, Griot, Movies, Networking, News, Video on April 28, 2016 at 5:36 am

I actually prefer to reside in a New York state of mind
for therein I have run into some “treasure finds.”

Beyond the confines of shop walls and niche stores
it is the heart of the people that I most adore.

We’ll start our adventure off Around the way
near the corner of Madison and Stuyvesant for a little play:

q2-25th-bday-qui-44
April 19, 2016 — Vikram was in the foreground doing his thing on set while Jimmy & Chris held down the background on an adjacent block – near the viewing tent.

Jimmy and Chris were not a part of the film crew, kraft services, car services or even the sound crew. Jimmy and Chris live in Brooklyn off of Madison. This is their hood and they knew everyone.

Jimmy has lived in Brooklyn for 28 years – he was born on Coney Island moved to North Carolina as a child, went off to the Navy as a young adult and was discharged in Brooklyn. Jimmy is a firecracker while Chris played the wingman, oftentimes serving as the “political correct translator” for his off-the-cuff neighbor Jimmy. As passerby’s would come and go, Jimmy would speak and chop-it-up with most, and then there were those few that got no love at all. Like this one guy that approached our trio with conversation in progress – as if he’d been there all day with us. He came in saying, “Yo cous[in]! What’s up? What’s going on over here [referring to the set]?” Chris began to remark that he hasn’t been long on the scene when I cut him off with a compliment to the conversation crasher, “Great smile!”  All of his teeth were perfectly aligned and properly whitened to pop against his golden complected skin. He smiled a slight Obama-like smile and said, “Thank you. You too,” and that’s when I noticed Jimmy was missing in the round. Jimmy removed himself form the conversation while I was looking at the conversation crashers grill. The crasher continued to question probe and I did my best to alleviate his inquisition. Chris and ‘the crasher’ noticed Jimmy’s disposition – the crasher attempted to pitch conversation Jimmy’s way but Jimmy was posted up on one of the antique stunt cars and unavailable for remark. The crasher got the point, gave Chris dap and kept it moving. Jimmy rejoined the click.

  • JIMMY: I don’t play that. He’s not from around here. He don’t need to come over here talking about “Hey Cuz’.” He know I’m not cool with him.

Wow. That was the first person all day, out of, say 250 (+/-), that I had seen the Cancer respond to with his pincher. Yes – Jimmy is a Cancer and his nickname is Squirky too. Ask not how I know this, I’m a writer. I inhale oxygen and exhale questions. 😀 People are interesting. I love people and since Fab and I did not get to do lunch together I leaned on my new friends to recommend a place of dine that I could walk to before I passed out of low blood sugar and Jimmy went into his monologue as to WHY he does not eat out. Sanitation issues are real – according to Jimmy and he just ‘can’t do it.’ Chris laughed it off and confirmed that ‘Jimmy doesn’t eat out at all,’ and then he led me to a spot at the corner of Halsley and Lewis. A soul food joint. Jimmy is a great babysitter, he walked me to the restaurant. Brooklynites are fantastic. I am a fan of their hospitality. The restaurant was cute in decor and smelled delicious. I ordered the fried catfish and greens – no bread. It tasted delicious. I could taste a distinct trace of lemon in the catfish batter. I loved it. I was nourished sufficiently.

IMG_2790Jimmy and Chris stayed on that adjacent corner in Brooklyn with me for about 4 hours until Fab and I jetted off to that (not so speedy) 2-hour heavy traffic car ride back to Manhattan.

April 19th was primary voting day in New York and the New Yorkers got it in. I should know, because I accompanied Fab to the poles. I don’t remember if both of the Brooklyn Brothers voted, but I do recall asking Jimmy if he had voted and he confirmed that he had. Hearing as much made me feel good.

I am aware of 2 veterans that I had known for years before I learned that THEY DO NOT VOTE. One of the veterans is from NY and the other one from OK.

Why wouldn’t you vote? What is the point? Don’t ever complain about anything if you do not vote. I still like the two (who do not know each other), but it’s rough taking them serious when they scream “CHANGE!” I wish they’d change their ways and start voting. It’s not ever asking too much to ask a person to vote for their interests in local and national elections. It made me feel good that my Brooklyn Brothers seemed to be up on political topics  – but we didn’t linger there long. I’m not a fan of just politicking it up- I just want to know that you vote. Hitting on topic with Jimmy and Chris was appropriate for two reasons: #1 it was April 19 – voting day and #2 the film that was being shot that day was about Barack Obama before he was the president of the United States – during his stint in New York. Definitely memorable worthy stuff from Around the way. 

happy divider

Jimmy and Chris are neighbors – they are as real as real could ever be.
They ‘read folks on the to and fro’ but for the most part they kicked it with me.

The more I hung out with them – our tab of relations grew thick.
I was reminded that Brooklyn is “Jus like Compton” – joint by DJ Quik.

No hood is new – they’re all like yours – just on a different coasts.
I’m a lover of geography – I’m a lover of interesting folk.

I’m a lover of good authenticity, especially when “Around the way,”

The last few days — for they have truly impacted me,
but then these are “the usual vibes” I take away from the NYC.

I was merely dropping in to hiatus and perhaps write a little,
but hooking up with Fab5Freddy made all of the difference in the middle.

4/19/16 @ 10:30am I receive a text from the legend extending a lunch date. I accept! I call an Uber and get to Brooklyn pronto! Upon arriving at the address, I see Fab outside on a landing looking towards what obviously is a film production in process. “Yippee!! I’m going to be up, close and personal. I was bursting at the seams with curiosity as to what type of film was being shot but I restrain my curiousity and instead open up to absorbing as much of this experience as I could. I met an interesting dude while on set, a director, Vikram Ghandi. He mentioned a documentary film that he shot in Phoenix, KUMARE and how he enjoyed the experience. I researched the piece and while I haven’t seen it yet, the concept of the film and the way Vikram went about approaching the films production is a tale in itself. I can’t wait to see the piece. I met dozens of other characters while I waited in earshot distance of the filming and I’ll write about them on a later date. It was a good time that I can’t say enough about…

Fab and I did not spend as much time together  on this trip as I would have liked, for instance, we didn’t share one meal. Not even lunch. He was working. However, what we did share was far more substantial. We talked for what must have been hours…well, he talked and I listened – intensely. I learned a lot about a lot of things though especially about him. At one point I, actually thanked him for ‘clarifying and filling-in-the-gaps about his life on things that I honestly did not know.’ I then said, “the only reason I’d never asked of you this information prior is because I was sure you’d told this story a million times and I didn’t want to…” before I could finish he said, “No I haven’t! I don’t go around telling people my personal life information. You’re special.”  ——

I promise to God, I thought I was going to fall out.
The words were subtly said, but came with BIG ENERGY – no doubt.

It took me seconds to collect myself and work it out.
I’m thinking, ‘Words you’d want one to say – has been said aloud.’

Internally, I piped down, and then turned my face back to the legend, (Yes! Imagine that. I actually snapped my neck to the right away from Fab when he said that and was facing the wall while I collected myself. Length of time wall watching: 7 seconds +/-). I politely re-entered into conversation with a question and he continued to paint historical reminisces and references that I otherwise would not have ever known. How blessed am I? How lucky can you be? I’m all of the above and recognizing such is key and this was the foundation of everything that he told me. He was not coy in letting me know that he is blessed and he knows it.

He took me to his art studio in Harlem and I saw his mind burst with color and boundless energy…

fab5freddy-crystal-wk.png

He talked about appropriating art and how he pays homage to
and how the CAMPBELL SOUP TRAIN CARS were “exactly that” too!
Art appropriations.

I can’t say enough about his art. I really can’t. I can’t afford it either but who wants to dwell on that? 😀 I don’t. But I did linger in his presence and gained new perspective as to how he does it, his motivation and… honestly most answers came back having to do with ‘something from his life.’ The kid from Brooklyn. He was close to his mother, or as he put it, “My mother and I were close.  Unusually close.” Fab lost his mother a couple of years ago, but when I was in his presence, I felt her. I smirked. I wasn’t going to bring it up, but then he did. He feels and recognizes her energy. Again, I was taken. It’s not everyday someone converses with me about being cool with energy that they cannot see. I am very cool with it and I talk about it often, so certainly I was “heart warmed” and dimensionally informed about the legend when he spoke of his mothers energy around him. That’s #Good411.

fab5-subway-carsWe talked more about that famous Campbell Soup art on the subway trains that he painted too. Very cool backstories emerged. Very movie’esque stuff – still. Even though his film WILD STYLE incorporated and cross referenced a lot of what was going on with him at the time – being involved in the early days of HIP HOP, however it’s his early days of art development and his parental & familial influences (in the round) that is quiet appetizing. His life is a cool movie that we haven’t seen yet. I saw some of it when he told it to me the other day. Obviously it left a reel impression on me, therefore I can’t say enough about…

decorative-line-divider1

4/23/16 @ 6am — When something turns out better than you originally expected – ever say ye something similar aloud:
“This is so good. So very good. I can’t say enough about…” ?

I do on occasion. I love being caught off guard
and for what I experienced in New York – I must thank the good Lord.

I have to, because however were things orchestrated to be so cool — yo?
Not only was I on set with and visited studio with but I also accompanied Fab to vote.

Yo! Yo! Yo!
April 19th was their day to Vote.

I was thrilled to tag along. It was a well painted community picture
to top the earlier part of the day – spectating on set and meeting Vickram.

Meeting Jimmy and Chris was a whole ‘other act on its on.
That’s why I’ll write of them in the latter; comedy was strong.

Brooklyn. Brooklyn.
She can’t go wrong.

I really can’t say enough about her, I was sent there via Malcom X Blvd,
I’m Qui
and I had a good time in the NYC. Thanks Fab, supporting cast and the good Lord.

Now it’s time to get to work. I’ve got film scripts to tighten up and kick out…

It’s one of my favorite things to do.
Every time I talk to him I learn a thing or two.

Yesterday when we talked – he casually mentioned ‘news a la thick,’
he said he was on the set of a film regarding a MARVEL comic.

‘Tis sweet info that did split my wig and so I had to share it with you.
