NapalmSpot got a chance to catch some of the gaming community at LFG. People heard of LFG Royal Oak through keeping in contact. From Smash Tournaments to being in friendly competition. Embracing the escapism in true fashion only to uplift one another during defeat. Nick brought a Basement idea to the street-sides of Royal Oak. The business owner always wanted to have a place of his own. Calm, atmosphere where he can provide the community with a larger than life business.
Right now in current culture, competition has westernized the black male. Competition has helped molded the conscious culture not to speak out of love. But to prove that I can lead off being more smarter than you. While drinking heavy doses of liquor, bottle by bottle. Sitting in a throne with a head held so high you can not even see the ones falling before you parish. When we think of our economic resources, we talk with hot air spending it out of ignorance.
The ignorance of our sin has given a grace to breed a species that only care of themselves. Drinking poisons that are fed from billion dollar industries that were built off the backs of slaves. Only for them to display our culture as people that need to worship the material possessions. Becoming even more rich as our people die, day by day. While we have our artist re-chant the songs that make corporate america even more rich.
It has gotten so bad to the point black media as an indie source now self-destructs on it’s own. Because of the lies that are woven so deep into our culture for years and years. That it has gotten to the point, I do not even have to do it. It self drives it’s own destiny. As the rich smiles in our face, while the broken boy that is black faces a destiny of being shot. Then the rich people laughs even more as our worshiped artist sings this same song.
We embraced a capitalistic mindset when we can not accomplish true capitalism that makes this culture go further. While this is happening, the black race is being at face for extinction. Making everything that encompass an African-american culture become non-existent. Ego has became a forefront, making our hands beat on our chest as it has always been depicted.
McDonald workers are petitioning their rights for better living. Often at times, female employees are faced with sexual misconduct. Managers are overworked by franchise owner stretching a dollar by what is given. Across the board, minimum wage is not seen as a way for supporting livelihood in America. Franklin D. Roosevelt said himself, “The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much. It is whether we provide enough for those who have little”. Being a Democrat political party, his message ears off to many others in Democrat America today.
Urban development Julian Castro, New York City mayor Bill De Blasio and, Washington Governor Jay Inslee. All met together with Bernie Sanders in regards to McDonald workers not receiving their fair share in America. Bernie even wrote a letter to the McDonald’s Ceo for them to raise wages for people working in their establishment.
Many people that are Senators in the Democratic party are rallying together. Bernie Sanders holds his words, talking in high regards, saying that people that are birthed in this country should be allowed equal opportunity to succeed. His stances we’re correcting the school systems. Highlighting Brown V. Board of Education, that separate school systems for African-american and whites were inherently unequal.
Bernie has many passions that want America’s working class to have a fair shot at life. America has not always been the best place for those that want a second chance at life. His reforms want to promise a better future for the youth. In a country that is dominated by funds over emotion. If Bernie’s promises catches wind, this could persuade some of the people that have given up. Not the middle-class citizens in America, but the people that are not even thought in the best light.
The people who wake up everyday with such weight on their shoulders. Worrying about if they are going to see a full forty-hours a week for work. Some of these parents come from harsh backgrounds raising kids in America. Which some of these kids will repeat the same process that their parents once did. The democratic reform that would take place would possibly mold opportunity for those that have seen heavy economic strife.
As much goes on in the world we call politics. People are still in awe that Donald Trump became president. As most American citizens were idly waiting by for a better choice. Both political parties at that time were not a great ideal candidate for the American elections. Both we’re doing under-handed deeds that lead Hillary under investigation. Trump having alleged ties to Russia for an election he has won. When many Americans have felt that this man should have not taken home the win. While us as the people, are left blind to what is going on in politics.
News publications across media right now is trail blazing with findings from the Muller Report. Something that is so prolific it is highlighting facts going back to 2016 in Trumps dealings with Russia. As this report is filed along side with the attorney general. The report by Robert Muller is a self-documented side by side case highlighting what he has seen with the president. Robert Muller is giving America a taste of the truth from his side of the grass. This might be a problem, as this might be in the same space as Wiki Leaks. Important documentation of the dark side of America. That is going out into the public eye in which we should not know about.
Robert Muller was assigned to oversee Trumps involvement with Russia. Which leads me to believe in which what was going on before the elections. This is a very special time for America. As this past political campaign high-lights the underhanded theories that conspiracy theorist always question. Trump wanted Muller fired but could not get him fired due to other people that are backing him. I hope that this goes well for Muller as this puts a target on his back in America. This is a man being held under fire yet celebrated at the same time for wanting to share his accounts.
Stereotypes has always been a factor in our social ladder. Being that the white man can’t jump or a dark skinned American is a super-predator in society. When we combine this with what it means to make music. It holds a stigma on what it means to be an artist. Which would make the people that are in suits, invest dollars into a marketing campaign. That promotes the stereotypes of a certain ethnic group. It is hard for a rapper to tell the truth when he is confided in a box of stereotypes. Being unique sells, but being that of a cloth. Helps the cut become clear in the eyes of the audience. Humans like to see the depiction of a person torment happening in real time. Being the center stage on gods podium. Showcasing self-destruction on the highest realm.
When in reality, the voice behind this artistic form is expressing an out-reach of their environment. If we look at Gucci Mane, he has always been seen as a person that indulges in behavior that would land someone in prison. Having many media beefs, fighting an active citizens guard and even sprawled rap beefs that landed mainstream media attention. Gucci Mane was herald as one of raps terrors. Which helped boosted his marketing campaign through the roof. After getting out of prison, he had a chance to reintroduce himself as more than a rapper. He introduced us to a clean Gucci, living the life of the rich and famous. In most cases, is sad. When this person was being championed as a super-criminal. Instead of get the proper help he needed when he was out. This is the case of most artist. We glorify their self-destruction until their demons eat away at their vital being.
When we see rappers that are spreading truth. It is often seen as a bore, being a rapper is not good enough. You actually have to embrace the ethos of the streets. Which in all cases is fine. But people are in love with gang culture, which is a thing among a young hustler trying to find his circle of niggas getting to the money. When all of America can not wait to throw this at his next court hearing. Just to put it in writing, that artist of this genre proves to America that we are borderline terrorist. This is not healthy for the mindset of Americans. Again and again, we are accepting nigga-bashing on a platform we’re the teachings of white supremacy helped mold a view point of an inner-city kid.
Rap artist can’t tell societal truths until we accept that this mold has to be broken. Yes, I love to shine. But I shined from the gravel Thomas Jefferson and his cohorts buried us under. Taking advantage of the narcotics that was flown overseen and even extorted inside a crooked cops nose. When I tell the truth, I am even seen as the problem still. Ready to be persecuted again and just be thrown into the court house. Even worse, have my own people go against me. With me having to embrace a me against the world mentality. Now there is nothing wrong with a person expressing themselves in a way that grants them escapism. When I tell the truth, do not write a bullet with my name on it.
Right now, there are at-least fifteen-hundred refugees marching to U.S soil. Migrating from their homeland Honduras because of the crime rate. Economic hard-ship has taken a toll on it’s people their. Gang activity has risen off the charts, surpassing that of Americas most violent cities. As the people march trying to find a better life. America wants to keep them in detainment. The National Guard has control on the situation at hand, guarding the U.S Border. Donald Trump has stated some criminals are apart of the caravan to America.
People has had accounts of being in Honduras. A Local Student gave her perspective on what is taking place in her home country. She said it is a very dangerous place. So dangerous that when they tried to take her brothers car, her brother received a wound, getting shot in the back. A couple more statements I read is that the people work from sunrise to sundown. Only to bring home five dollars. With that five dollars they have to be able to support their families. Situations like these create issues of human-trafficking and the selling of their kids. Local politicians have no worries, their aim is to get rich. America has tribute at-least millions of dollars to their economic structure. Only for the hands of greedy people to take it for their own benefit and gain.
Economic elites have a closed networking group among the politicians in Honduras. President Juan Orlando Hernandez, is helping strengthening the corruption in Honduras. Illegal trade is taking place right now, helping fly drugs in and out the country. This would explain the gang violence that is happening in the country. As the countries black market is a way to strengthen the peoples survival in a country that is war torn. Nobody is helping the people their, instead people are being taken advantage of. It makes me wonder who is the corporations and criminal ties that is pushing this agenda. It all comes down to the almighty dollar.
From my point of view, this has always been a context in a society we’re man wants to rule over a body of people. Only to end up for exploitation of their country to happen. As these people march the borders. They have trauma, feeling as if the world they we’re born into is cursed. No-love for their people, only to create immigrants that are like Tony Montana out the movie Scarface. Some people are flying to U.S soils from this country to birth their children. But, only the rich are taking advantage of this situation. While the poor are dealing with government corruption and the rise of gang activity. The people in Honduras should take a stand together instead of kill off one another. As this situation mirrors economic hard-ship in America with minority groups. How long are we going to let corrupt political power and businesses take advantage of us as a people ?
Many conspiracy theorist say that companies like PepsiCo, Mcdonalds and Wendy’s work with companies like Senomyx to use the proteins out of a fetus to enhance the artificial flavors. Pro-life Oklahoma Senator Ralph Shortey presented a bill that prohibits the use of stem cell research to be used in food. The FDA is unaware of said practices being used in the manufacture of food processes. People reached out to these major companies to seek answers. All corporations involved said no. Sometimes. I myself speculate on the use of aborted fetuses. Here in recent news, Detroit Funeral Homes has been caught hording fetuses. They say that some of them have been sold to WSU science department. Further research I have seen that Fetuses can run on the black market for thousands of dollars.
I am pro-life because of the money that goes into the pockets of big business. Yes, there is a business to everything that is involved. Especially when we have scientist in confidential Grey Zone labor-ties conducting their next experiment into finding out “cures” for humanity. When some would say these scientist also help create diseases, enhanced bio-terrorism and cloning experiments. Horrifying secretes that you would see in a sci-fi movie or on a youtube conspiracy channel. Don’t get me wrong, in this country woman have choices. But when we think of the funding that goes into: war, business and propaganda. That same money can be used to fix the societal ills so we do not have to be faced with abortion rates rising.
Through my findings, African-Americans are the largest group in the abortion rate. Along with Hispanics and people that are facing economic hardship. To my speculation, this leads me to believe blacks are still going to be at the lowest of American totems pole but still be the most used. In our work force and for the use of government and media exploitation. Devalued life has always been seen in our ghettos. Nobody has never stop to question the use of our system, and why things are the way they are. People say the genetics is unique, so why not keep minorities of different ethnic groups uneducated. Have planned parent hood not get the funding needed to excel. School systems fall aback even more and the continuation of family homes we’re escapism is needed through media outlets that showcase a minstrel show. So we can keep profiting on the use of abortion clinics to further the scientist in America.
The practices of fetuses being used for medicine and stem cell research proves the value of a woman. Woman help brings the creation of these DNA particles into existence so we can experiment. Still yet, they are being exploited through sexual idealization. So we can have the next billionaire republican come in. See the down-fall of we’re we are going wrong as a civilization and then capitalize off of it. Still woman are going to be paid little in the work force and not see the fruits of their labor get celebrated as a man would. Why do you think we have so many woman choosing to rebel against the mold of family ?
Walking into the lounge I was with my homies. We had met up with some of the set performers. I sat and chat with the people around the venue. My homie interrupted my conversation with a full glass of beer, telling us about how well treated the artist here are. I walked around scoping the place as Black Moon Child played her set. The place was very elegant, showing an up-scale lifestyle. Nothing of the average is seen here. People that we’re bosses and artist that has a style of experimentation. I had to go and get me a drink myself. Before getting myself a drink, I had caught a quick conversation with Nuntheless.
His mission is to bring out anybody that has not played a live set that embraces a totally unique style. He said the scene here in Detroit can kind of get cliquish, isolating artist from not having their time to shine. He started out being a producer then evolving into a DJ. It all started when Omar was out of town, that is when his ideas started brewing like the cold refreshing beer in this lounge. He exclaimed networking is a big element to have in Detroit and he utilize that for an advantage. Having a venue with all the talent he knew, infused within the elegant style that Detroit embraces. Nuntheless is a; producer, DJ, drummer, and even a pianist. You can check out some of the highlights below.
It is tough being an independent artist coming up in whatever genre you are doing. Especially with promotion being a key-factor with what is going on today. I believe one of the benefits of being an artist on the come-up is the authenticity you put into your grind work. Going to open mics, meeting with different acts and communicating the art you made. I believe there is beauty in being independent that can not be replicated. Most people want what is real. I can’t lie, I can not stand someone fake who portrays something to me that is not in the realms of their reality.
When being an artist on the grind. I believe genuine interaction in your community is the most important aspect to be put on. If I sat back and thought about most artist careers. Mines is the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Khalifa and even Lil B. All these artist represented something that most artist are missing. Not instantaneous super-stardom, the grind work into being an artist performing, interviewing and making their last the best impression
With the corruption happening inside of the Republican party: Donald Trump continues to lose in public favor. MTV has had enough and decide for a political stance. Urging our younger demographics to rage out in the voting booth. As we have felt powerless for a long time, MTV as a media outlet chose to emphasis the control voting has. Although their stance is not bias, it is favoring Democrats efforts into alluring more young adults into voting. MTV plans to bring in about one-thousand people to take a vote. MTV even has support by people of political power, channeling investments into their pockets. This will also increase the strength of the stance they are taking.
With Donald Trump not giving a F**** about global issues and mining the world out of precious resources. While also, blaming immigrants for the reason America is losing, when some of had to work and they came here with nothing. Trump also added Salt in the womb. The Me Too movement that is happening right now, highlighted him as a president in the past downplaying woman as sexual objects. This man is the reason why we are failing as a country. We was outraged on social media and did not to take a stand to vote, in the end we failed. MTV wants this generations voice to be heard for an impact that will save us for the times of tomorrow. MTV as an outlet believes in people being their authentic selves. Embracing unity and diversity in our fifty-states we live in. This media company has always been the strength of what is popular. Take a stand with our countries favored media outlet and go vote today.
