TRUTH BE TOLD (Part 7)
IMB Corporation just celebrated 100 years as one of the leading brands in America's history. The late rapper Tupac Shakur, my favorite equal to Jay - Z, just celebrated his 40th birthday yesterday. Keep Ya Head Up, a song penned by Shakur is my number 1 hip hop song, and he actually has three tracks in my top ten.
TRUTH B TOLD, my love for his music and his bold and refreshing delivery, laced with his confused and intellectual mind should be studied. Because most brilliant and visionary individuals, dead or alive all share some of the same characteristic. And like Andy Warhol or Picasso, Tupac music will live 100 years.
- A great dude and wonderful father and husband, Khalid Scott, has been asked to be a guest on WVON 1690 AM tonight at 7pm, joining The Kendall Moore Show, to address Mr. Scott's favorite topic, RELATIONSHIPS.
TRUTH BE TOLD, the invite came after he wrote an article for DUNAMIS Woman magazine entitled The State of Today's Black Men, and Our Black Women: The Enemy? (www.dunamis-woman.com). Please tune in and call in, 773-591-1690. Out of state listeners, 877-591-1690 or 866-591-1690.
- The Vancouver flash mob created one of the most destructive and damaging scenes in recent memory. One business owner estimated damages will range in excess of one million dollars. My only thing in looking at this mayhem, is are the authorities, regular citizens and mainstream media going to call for law enforcement to began profiling these hundreds of young people who embarrassed a city and brought shame to one of America's most celebrated sporting events?
TRUTH BE TOLD, popular radio personality Matt, what are going to say now, are you going to go hard on these suburbanites in Vancouver like you go hard on your urban dwellers? I'll be listening as usual to your wonderful program to see how you frame this. Holla back, but only after you prove you got shakers :o))
- I never comment on stupid stuff like Congressman Anthony Weiner, it's dumb and he and his family has to deal with that mess, it does not effect my life what so ever.
So TRUTH BE TOLD, how can his associates within the walls of Congress say they can't carry on with the people's business as long as this distraction is front and center. What does this have to do with them solving the problems of America behind closed doors? That's like a married person saying I can't come to work and perform my duties because my husband left me and I'm sad. No boss wants to here that, and your colleagues and customers will be like, we feel for you, but get over it and join the lot of us.
300 and Counting (Part 2)
Yesterday I got an incredible call from some young leaders in the community, who reached out to give me a few words of encouragement. When Brandon, one of the callers indicated his group loves the news service and it's one of the few things on-line or within their cell phones that they look forward to reading every day, I was choked up. They say they love my language, it's like we're chilling together talking real talk.
That's why I created this medium to communicate primarily to that demographic of young hustlers trying to find their way in this amazing and chaotic life. I love calls, text or emails like those and I also appreciate when people hit me up and express displeasures. But what I dislike is when regular readers decide they want to be vocal and email or call me about a misspelled word or grammatical errors, which is cool to hear about. But never has these select people ever reached out to say that they read something that was dope or awesome, and to say thanks or whatever.
I'm not looking for any of it, but when I know by my tracking system that you peeping the news service, so it got to be something that moves your cheese, why else would you be checking the data daily. So FYI, the one thing I ask from loyal readers, just come all the way real and be straight up, but definitely read the next 300! Peace and one love.
