Way To Go with The Vote

I hear you America, your vocals are strong.
Do what feels right because you understand what’s wrong.

Yesterday’s primary turn-out had it going on. I’m proud of you.
Michigan rose to the occasion to do what they needed to do,
and came through.

I slept like a baby and dreamed quite vivid.
Good energy is up while the low energy is livid.

Unity requires a standard of respect and respect has been at lack.
Rise this morning, smile in the mirror and get your unity back.

The world is at a better starting-point today, because of the American vote.

Atta’ boy! Enjoy the self-pat on you head
and jam the headline video of what UMI SAID.

As for that nasty-boy Covid19
the blood of Jesus can cover you from that scene.

Divine favor from your maker is real.
Someone that you know tested positive? They can heal.

Atoms and energy composes us all.
Angels are protecting you; illnesses fall.

When life presents us with a situation that has swollen out of our control
God steps in with biological winds that avert ill-will from His children’s souls.

I’m a girl of Science. I think Science is tops.
I’m a supernatural girl; I believe in God.

I’m a storyteller; you know me,
I’ll always champion the good of WE.

Last night the world saw our intentions; may the markets honestly rise,
I’m Qui
Good morning sweetheart, there’s divine help beyond the skies.

Live LYTE – #Always

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,
I’m Qui
Living LYTE
on lyrics. Didn’t know? Now you’ve heard.

A Happier Intent

In Communication, Griot, Music, News, Self Improvement on August 13, 2014 at 7:19 am

As my birthday rolls around and I prepare to celebrate,
I recognize there are others who cease to resonate…


.
Robin Williams fell by the way side — headlines read “Comic down!”
And don’t forget to send up a prayer for the slained teen, Michael Brown.

Life is short, I’ve seen and heard.
Depression kills,” says Iago, the bird.

Cops killing unarmed black men is also a hot topic.
God forbid and karma is real. Dear officer, please stop it.

August is the month of good times and fun,
Yesterday has passed, it’s time to get you some.

Wallow not in the sorrows of the day or the moment.
Just give it to God — He’s already on it.

A Happier Intent is what I have charted.
I’m that Leo miss, all inclusive; big hearted.

Sometimes guarded, but I’ve learned to let them down.
Good recognizes good and I give “Good” a pound.

Today is Hump Day, and I can not complain
I woke up in Arizona to thunder and rain.

What a rare moment this is, I am happy for sure.
God knew we were dry, so he sent us a cure.

A Happier Intent, I’ve got great plans today.
There’s just 2 more days before my birthday.

I’m excited about it all – I’m ready to ball. Yep! Yep!
I’m ready to sing CALIFORNIA like my man Mos Def:


.
I’m going to take my celebration further west
A Happier Intent deserves Cali’s best.

This hump day deserves a compassionate understanding,
I’m Qui
and a Happier time is what I’m commanding. 🙂
