That’s not an apple and I’m not Newton, but I’m up and at it.
Where’s the ball that is the days sum? I’m ready bat it.

The weekend was long and alas, I am refreshed indeed.
I did a lot of show watching and inhaled many script reads.

It’s a literary’s deed and I enjoy the route.
What is your weeks purposeful composition about?

Do tell, I pray of thee.
Me? I’m up to peruse manuscript reads.

They don’t stop.
Writing is essential, like Hip Hop.

You knew I was going to say that. Didn’t you?
I jam to a beat used more than concrete;
Griot renders yesterday “anew.”

Let’s you and I: top score it.
Opportunity is at hand? Let’s go for it.

Are you ready? It’s Day 2.
I’ve got my pen, what’chu want to do?

Do it and I will chronicle the resonation for current surface.
Legacy is to be recorded; how you utilize your purpose.

Do it. Today is the perfect Muse Day.
Monday came and went; welcome dear Tuesday.

Let work and play be our ruling force.
You can’t get to the party if you don’t have a horse.

Which one is your horse? Which skill do you posses in spades?
I’m Qui
a word-witty she and Tuesday is my Muse Day.

Purposeful excite is expressed through my writes.
I’m excited to write about you, shining your light.

This day is about me and you,
let’s use the exponential 2.

The number 5 is all the way live… especially with an exponent.

Gimme Some

Give me some, because this -ish is all the way live.
I’ll take the full report and Five on the Black Hand Side:


.
Are you down to ride? Yesterday’s CD ROM was hot.
Mueller’s report is a bulky sport and it don’t stop.

Sounds like lyrics made for Hip Hop. Feels like we’re experiencing a growth spurt;
though after the report was made public it’s likely the CIC’s stomach hurt.

The heat is up and is duly on the back of some folks neck.
The Mueller report is alive; the administration is wrecked.

There were a bunch of Oh’s pointing to an X; lets just call the x variable Defendant One.
Gimme Some when the gander is done – I’m off to have a weekend of yum!

Bummed is what the news out of Washington, DC had been of late;
things started to shake last night and tomorrow is 420 Day.
Hip-hip hooray!

Exhale long.
Let your hair down; let nothing be wrong.

Drop the stress as common unity increases.
Tell your stressed out comrade to not to fall to pieces:

.

Today feels like it’s going to produce words that should be composed into a song.
Kinfolk, I’m just happy and pray that we can all prosper and get along.

I prayed that for yesterday, today and I’ve already prayed it for tomorrow.
I really hope the light is truly in view and behind us is the bulk of sorrow.

New Peruse? “Whatchu’ talkin’ about  Willis?” I ain’t been in the mood.
It’s hard on a Griot to keep singing the blues about a variable fool.

Lord help us all. Let us approach this day expecting a little fun.
I’m Qui
Dropping by to love on thee and to reciprocation I say, “Gimme Some.

Live LYTE – #Always

In Communication, Griot, Music, Networking, News on August 29, 2015 at 8:19 am

mc-lyte-keep-on-keepin-onLana Michelle Moorer was not giving chase to Jesus Christ when she said, “I am the light! The L-Y-T-E,” she was making good music. It was still the early days of HIP HOP in the late 80’s and the music was full of message.

There were no ‘hoes to superman‘ and there was no one requesting anyone to ‘eat the booty like groceries.’ No – none of that. Those examples would be of: rap minus meaning not hip hop. And there’s nothing detrimentally wrong with message-less music, especially in a dance hall setting. One of my favorite places to dance hall is in Jamaica and the music is always banging as are the actions of the dancers on the floor with me. There’s unison hand clapping and hip jerking. I love it, but to be honest, I never understand the words of the songs because the Jamaican accent is authentically thick. So just the fact that I dig Jamaican dance hall music, goes to show that perhaps you don’t have to know all of the words  to jam a song, burn loads of calories and have fun. However, if the song is to last and be legacy worthy – it better have some type of message or you can bet soon it will be literally forgotten.

Lana Moorer was 16 when she entered the game, she had something to say and just a few months ago she was on the air saying something to HOT 97 about life and game longevity. If you’ve been living in the dark without the luminescence of LYTE, you really want to catch this:

Viva la LYTE!!!

When I think about yesterday and how todays music meets,
I think about Hip Hop and the way they used to handle beefs.

It was all about the message – it was all about the words.
It was all about wisdom, like BLACKSTAR. Have you heard?

Life is short, no time to live in darkness.
Everything ain’t for you – some circumstances are heartless.

Life regenerates and needs the help of LIGHT to photosynthesize.
Music is good without words but MESSAGE elevates the rise.

Imagine that.
It’s the way of the Black.

A lyrical and intellectual snack.
MC Lyte has #ALWAYS been about that.

Life can be heavy – pick and choose your verbs,

on lyrics. Didn’t know? Now you’ve heard.
