Afro Samurai is the cartoon that I recall being the first Anime that had rap culture in it. Afro Samurai embraced rap music, staring Samuel L Jackson as one of the main characters. Having a black samurai raise his blade against other opponent just to fight the character Justice. An antagonist who killed his father so he can obtain the number one headband. Rza had production credit for this Anime as well.
Hip-hop culture also appeared in Manga’s like Naruto and Samurai Champaloo. Naurto had Killer Bee, a Jinchuriki that raps any chance he gets. Samurai Champaloo having Dj scratches as apart of their show stylistics. Anime started to hold cultural structure in our genre of music. The two cultures started dancing with hip-hop for sometime, creating a new breed of rap artistry.
People that we’re infatuated with hip-hop culture and Anime started making AMVS. A short collage of fight scenes with a hip-hop music bed. The most popular AMV currently is Naruto Vs Sasuke final fight, Suicide Boys plays as the two collide. AMVS are used for cool promotional visuals for songs. The anime world has a lot of story-lines revolving around; drama, romance, family ties and vengeance. Why not have a genre that has the street struggle and glory: embrace these type of story lines.
I can name a bunch of rappers that used Anime as apart of there music and image. One of the most popular I can remember is Lupe Fiasco. By nature being a skateboarder, he became etched into the fabrics of nerd core hip-hop. Lupe has always been known as a fan of street-fighter. Rapper Rob Bank$ heavily embraces Anime and rap culture. His lyricism centers around Anime references. Comparing himself to cracking seals like the Akatsuki, the way one would crack seals on promethazine.
Growing up in a predominate black school getting reduced lunch as a young kid. We all use to trade Yu-Gi-Oh cards and talk about Dragon Ball Z. I remember fights use to break out over Yu-Gi-Oh and we played that game like we was playing at the gambling house. I had homies that use to hustle out Yu-Gi-Oh cards during morning time. It got real over that game, we all use to meet up just to play during breakfast and lunch. I remember when our cards had got confiscated, we use to creep in the teachers room when she was not there. Just to steal all are sh*t back that got taken away from us. I always thought the confiscation rule was a load of bullSh*t. In my opinion it was another form of stealing. Fast forward down the line, we all grew into our now early twenties and are still going hard for Anime world.
What goes on the wild west that we call social media. It has not gone through a balance and check system to determine if it is good or not. I think it is a bit problematic when anybody are able to have a voice. It is easy to find others to agree with your opinion when it is not the truth. I think corporations still have a huge benefit for a person that creates content. When a corporation steps in, it has to go through a check and balance system that has to be seen as profitable and a big success to even hit the big screens. I am not saying that when a corporation puts their hand in the pie it becomes better. Sometimes raw artist are better when they are pure: left in original form.
Social media allows different view points into are lifestyle. Which can cause a positive impact or even a negative one, depending on the voice. Also social media is representative as close to real life as it gets. When determining social media as a place of entertainment it can cause depression. For the person making it or even the person viewing it. I think what makes people gravitate on commercial products is that you know it is official. It has a trusted name brand attached to it that is known for delivering the highest level quality product possible to its consumer. I know in my mind, I will not see a pro neo-nazi television show become an entertainment platform on HBO like it has on Redit. In this day in age, allowing every one to have a voice is great. But when we over-consume social media, we lose our taste on good content.
If Satan did art it would consist of hurt that would blind a man into his confusion. Confusion in art is one of the ways humans battle popular opinion as a great debate. In the role of creation a person believes their own will is what makes art. Following the fact when our unsatisfactory embraces temptation, greed and envy. All these elements the beastly desires of our human heart contain. Releasing this into the sphere of modern art to showcase impulsive actions that frames the carnage of human. Satan uses his paintbrush from the spine of Icarus children. Making an inescapable policy that will work good clashing with evil. Ground working the frame of a human heart on this earth.
If Satan did art it would look like war burning across the tundra as people search for treasures in the land of Israel. Just for rare items once held at the tip of mosses staff ripped away and auctioned. The human heart can portray Satan working his art, showcasing the ills a person has endured walking. Is pain a close correlation of crafting out hell for a persons pocket book to write a check off for ? Some say that we are already in hell. I respond to them by saying it is a matter of what you see life as.
Satan is Gods greatest artist. Both artist use their paint brush to stroke out illustration in black and white. Fighting for their moral standpoint. Watching both opposing sides collide, to create something polarizing. I would say be-careful of what you give your eyes and time to with the intention of men. God allowed Satan to craft his wicked ways onto the concrete jungle for are hands to handle. He tested the gift of discernment that our receptors use too decipher the ills of one mans truth. Satan’s truth is knowledge that is suppose to be kept hidden from are reality; adultery, murder and greed.
Do you guys ever notice how the election campaign is ran ? You go out and touch basis on what is going on in America. Getting to know different communities and how it is ran. The vices that set groups of people are faced with then you find a point to fix the problem. The power of communication and love are prevalent in most Campaigns that gives a killer sweep in elections. Understanding the voice of your people is a relevant thing that is missing in the hearts of people. Although dollars are funded from big corporations, other politicians and so far. The money helps fuel a personality that is willing to inspire change within the world.
How would it look if I flaunt money in your face. Claiming I am some big shot coming here to save every one with no interaction or value of human life. I would be looked at as a target. The demonic devil who has no regard for life around me. Why would a community build their trust with me if I continued on doing this ? Instead it punishes people even more causing chaos in the hearts and mind of men. Money does not buy respect. Respect in my world is one of the strong foundations of building love. In order to succeed in the realm of business, I must build interaction within community. This holds true when we have to build trust. It is more than a campaign slogan or a fancy logo. We have to real life sit back and care for the place we inhabit. Stop to take our ear to listen then we give a solution on how we can bridge gaps on making what is wrong a better place. I think that is what makes Donald Trump not a respected figure head among people of economic decline, minority or people that celebrates liberalism. In fact he is the definition of someone who binds into the greed of money. Talking the power of a dollar and keeping the riches that “America” has build for it-self. Yeah it is a great talk for those that believe China is pimping us out of trade and immigrants are stealing from us.
Really the answer is bridging the gap in communities across an even keel so people can swim the shores of our economic rise we promise on our soil.
More than forty-million adults suffer from depression according to Anxiety And Depression Association Of America. Half of the people that have diagnoses of anxiety are left untreated. People that checks in the hospital due to high stress levels are often kept under diagnosis for psychiatric care. How many people are going to go through this epidemic we call depression ? With numbers that are daunting I personally found ways depression can be overcome through personal observation and experience.
I believe depression triggers from worrying inside our mind. Actually depression may be a sign of genius. Are brains are here for us to feel, see, and create. I believe it is all in how we channel thoughts for a positive out-come in our reality. Some Americans may feel stuck, waiting for that next success to break though. Maybe depression comes to finding a healing point from a traumatic experience we felt deeply. Depression is a sign of our mind working out realities we are unhappy with. I believe balancing out Depression is finding the root reason of why we are depressed first. You can not find a cure if you do not know what triggers this disease that attacks you.
As a doctor, I can diagnose all kind of medicines that will try and raise dopamine levels. A natural chemical in the brain that is suppose to come from natural stimulation. Now if you a n*gga in the hood going through stresses, like real life stresses. You often turn to unhealthy coping mechanisms or even let the pressures that surround you over take. When in reality depression can be eased by ridding of toxic people. Toxicity can be felt by those who are not willing to see you strive on the next goal you reach. People who down-play what you are doing, constantly judging with a magnifying glass with-out offering solutions on what can help you out. Being stuck inside of a hell-hole job with a boss that is over demanding. Doing daily routines just to make ends meet. A trap us as Americans do not have a choice but to fall into. Families not being valued at the utmost, leaving people feeling isolated and alone. This also applies for friend based relationships to. We live in such a fast paced world we often question ones self-identity on how to keep up.
Depression can be fixed in my opinion(if you are clinically sane), by changing the narrative of your story. The law of attraction is a very true statement. You ever felt like your soul has been so deeply poisoned, negative thoughts over-take your being. You felt so deeply poisoned you became the Squidward sitting behind your stationary work place waiting for that hour of excitement. In that case, attracting unfortunate circumstances with your deary outlook on life. Focus on your path and live out your desires to the fullest. No I would not say you are depressed. I think you may be unsatisfied with the situation of what is going on around you. Do not let money define you’r happiness because it sure in the hell will not buy self-respect. You want to wake up in the morning feeling fulfilled to accomplish what your heart desires. I believe that is why we mourn so deeply at a funeral. We never gave chances on how life would be if we embraced our hearts desire. We often give are will away a lot of the time, not knowing the full potential of what this fire holds. Knowing this, become the best person you can be then the human being that holds stability will follow.
I use to be the one that sits back and let life control me. I think that life is a simple thing to be figured out. Often it is over complicated by the emotional context it is surrounded by. When we have a woman we adore so much, we did not even stop to realize the beauty that is in our self . Putting our own happiness in the hands of another. We give our power to them. Not knowing the beauty of the relationship has to come from within first. That is most of what it is when we look at the content of enjoyment. If I do not love myself and what I do I can not take control of my destiny. I will be stuck doing the same routines over and over again. Why do I bump my head and nothing is working out for me ? Why do I care about the personal opinions of others.
When we start to care about the personal opinions of others we often hold ourselves back. Being stuck in the same context not growing to see our results potential be plentiful. I rather pick up on new skills and take life by the horns instead of let life hold me back. I rather take my happiness in my own hands then let someone else control it. Money is the root of success, I rather go out and be the best me possible. Collecting income from what I love to do. Utilizing the gift god has gave me in order to be the happiest me possible. Us as a human race are missing that in life.
