LESSONS IN AMERICA: THE FACES OF URBAN AMERICA

 2horse

This entry is for the masses. The Blue collar among the Blue collar. The hungry, the angry, the content, the scarred and the restless. For the O’s, the Bricks, the Eighth’s, the flags, the tragedy, and conflict. For youth, the ambitious, and the corporate. For the God fearing, do or die, still breathing. For those who have been through it, Got they money, and have learned, move in, and understand their habitat. My approach to urban America is not a fad; not a 15 minutes of fame to snatch and run with. Not a front for a stack, and a limelight. Nor a preachy sermon to conform people to an ideal that’s not theirs. But it’s a voice of understanding; an enrichment to a peoples in a struggle that has left us buried, locked up and blinded. No other way than keep it 100, from my bloodline, melanin, scars and tats. I rise daily to WAMU D.C radio, prep, shave, pair a trees, 1 coffee and on the grind. In my grassroots and corporate approach, deep in my conscious live the recess of where, and what I come from; as well as the better welfare of family, and extended. Hail the Bronx. Through my years of developing, it’s a standard and a bind that’ll never leave me. It’s a standard and experience, that my generation, this and coming generations will face. That alone makes me speak to urban America in a language; devoid of exploitation, lies, and commercialism. There’s a universal struggle burning global: from wars to politics. Inner cities? As they say in the east, “Bism-alibi al rahman al rahim”(In the name of the father, the beneficient, the merciful). If another day is given to you, its another day of opportunity. Elevate… Sa lute.-
