"...given a gift and platform..."

that message being that poetics, music and language within a form of often misunderstood music and peoples (and generation) can be transformed into a growth experience for the youth in highschools like those being neglected in british columbia, on our island and in our hoods...


"i am defining islam as no one has defined before me: islam is submission, submission is conviction, conviction is affirmation, affirmation is acknowledgement, acknowledgement is discharge (of obligation), and discharge of olbigation is action" -- (ai ib abu talib) amir al mu'min

the enemey of the current powers and haters is unity
the tool against us is chaos and sectarianism...

it is unfortunate that this and other threads is lead off track and easily allowed it's senitment and message to be currupted -- that message being that poetics, music and language within a form of often misunderstood music and peoples (and generation) can be transformed into a growth experience for the youth in highschools like those being neglected in british columbia, on our island and in our hoods, such as new palestine (fernwood), esquimalt (which already has an north american african invention == jazz as a program) and blanchard, who all suffer from the education cutbacks by the system who cares not for our future as do not the flunkies who plant themselve in all our areas and zones in our media not to make things grow or pass the torch b.u.t. to contro, cause chaosl and risk our peoples lives and the growth of culture for selfish and destructive causes of a larger global greed pustch and packback.

this was and still is in the tradtion of conviction to expose the peoples to newer voices who offer hope, mental strength and culture -- to offer humble and straight up proposal to innovate and educate-- to engage a methodology for our MC's our DJs to teach or lecture to our youth on the skillz, music and culture(away from the word "industry" and toward the flow of griots and expression) often misunderstood by the fearful, the misguided and lead astray by the greedy and dissed by the ignorant and hatefu who fear muliticulturalism and the voice of the people in common struggle.

"i was given a gift and platform and it was my responsiblity to use that platform...this is the beginning of a new world...this is the beginnig of the freedom of all the slaves and the slave masters"-- erykah badu

...to impliment a program to educate the youth in skillz that they are interested in and is major force and release it from greed and propoganda and to follow the true tradition of this so called Hip Hop, which as chuck d reminded us;

"Then I figure I kick it bigger
Look 'em dead in the eye
And they wince
Defense is pressurized
They don't want it to be
Another racial attack
In disguise so give some money back
I like Nike but wait a minite
The neighborhood supports so put some
Money in it
Corporations owe
Dey gotta give up the dough
To da town
or else
We gotta shut 'em down"

we have the local talent from stir fry to battle axe and city planners to graffers from I.B.C. to Villiage Idiots and more ... this is more than enough to not allow the skillz and the Knowledge nor science go to waste and abondon our hoods to gentrification
and no eduction or flow of expression.

"...this is the beginnig of the freedom of all the slaves and the slave masters..."


no hatin

respects
