HIS TESTIMONY IS ON THE WAY!!!! IM JUST WAITING ON IT!







   


     When I first decided to do this blog I was so reluctant to write about established artist/ celebrities because Im most interested in the very beginning stages of a career. I like finding out about the newbies! Its exciting! Seeing an individual building, climbing and then like magic they have arrived. Everyone covers the stars but theres something intriguing about the beginning when someone is just starting out on a new journey. It shows their strong faith that there is something out there way better than where they are at the present time and without knowing what's to come they have built up the strength to "go get it!" This journey does not necessarily have to be fame or fortune but when it come down to becoming a star, thats usually one of the destinations. When an artist make a serious decision to share their craft its amazing to see them make their mark and create a dent in the universe. They are vulnerable but needless to say trailblazing, so here I am writing about an established artist who is signed to Def Jam. He has taken the music industry by storm creating amazing music and so much more!  Inspiration!

       I feel a serious momentum being created around this upcoming masterpiece. I say masterpiece because at the age of 21 he has already dropped numerous bodies of work that should be considered classic. If  When he keeps going he will continue to write history  one song or should I say one album at a time because he has had the courage to simply share his truth. First time listening to his sound I had the pleasure of closing my eyes just to listen to him pour his heart out on each record. I hear a beautiful sincere voice that moves my soul just like when I listen to the Iconic MJ, his lyrical content remind me of the the day I witness my favorite hip hop artist the late great Tupac perform some of the realest sh*t he ever wrote. I can't leave out his attractiveness and style that reminds me of the Don (of my hometown) NYC "God MC" Nas but this artist makes himself very clear on who he is and where he is from. August Alsina is his name and with his strong movement he is about to deliver to the world his highly anticipated album titled Testimony 4/15/2014.



    I named all these greats because August is not your average R&B crooner. The native of New Orleans has pretty much bared his soul song after song with the truth about his life and struggles. His decision to take this musical path had alot to do with the loss of his brother, it forced him to make a solid decision about the direction of his own life. Every time I peek in on his progress all that comes from him is integrity, sincerity, realness, someone who wants to make a connection to those who can relate. His movement is about the struggle and overcoming and its the way he deliver and express his message that has captured millions including myself.

     August has been constantly mistaken for a rapper which I don't see how but the gift he has brought is quite different. Instead of separating the genres like most artist do, the way I interpret August is whether consciously or unconsciously he has creatively found a unique way to integrate genres without compromising the integrity of the music. His music (without a shadow of a doubt) reflect the influence of Hip Hop because of his struggle but it is being delivered in an R&B style. This uniqueness means he is in his own lane which is something to be excited about for music lovers. Now back to my interest and how I like seeing the beginning stages. I didn't get the opportunity to see the beginning stages with August starting from youtube days and the grind (my loss) but Im happy to be on board now. Im so happy and excited for him its a lil hard to contain. This feeling is due to his dose of truth and my love for real music. I mean for god sake the only Icon/Legend that I ever wanted to see perform was Tupac Shakur and I received my wish for FREE. I see August creating that same desire to just witness him and his movement but maybe not the free part.  lol

Sidenote: August if you ever check out this post, there is alot more I want to say but to keep it short (cause I can chat write),  you are simply the best out there and a HUGE Inspiration! Your Brother would be proud. Its Tunnel Vision from here on out...You are your own competition so just keep outdoing yourself.  Please keep the momentum going because you have everyones attention! Your heartfelt music is God sent! Believe That!  Know That! One Luv :-)

LEFT FOOT FIRST


LEFT FOOT FIRST by Poetik Elise © 2012 



ITS BEING CONSIDERED HISTORY IN THE MAKING 

AS SHEEPLE STILL MISTAKEN IT FOR THE TRUTH 

PULL THE WOOL OVER THE EYES OF THE YOUTH

REPEATING, PRACTICING, PROGRAMMING LIES, ERASING PROOF OF REAL HISTORY 

USING COLOR TO SEPARATE THE HUMAN RACE  WHOSE MISSION IS NOW A MYSTERY

SEPARATE US FROM ALL CORNERS OF THE EARTH NORTH/SOUTH/EAST AND WEST 

IN PEACE MAY THEY ALL REST BUT PLEASE NEVER FORGET

THOSE SPIRITS SO BLESSED WHO FORGE FORWARD WITH MOVEMENT

OUR KEMET LEADERS 

OUR SPIRITUAL AND REAL HISTORICAL TEACHERS 

WE REFUSE TO DO THE HOMEWORK BUT 

IMHOTEP WAS HEAVEN SENT TO EDUCATE 

I WAS BORN WITH A VEIL…NO NEED TO GO TO YALE

CAUSE AS A CHILD I REGURGITATE …REFUSE TO DIGEST THE NONSENSE 

THE WICKED SCHEMES THAT ARE DISGUISED TO BE BLESSED.

WHERES MY IMAGE…WHERES MY ANCESTORS…WHERES MY ARMY STOMPING WITH THE FIRST FOOT LEFT.

THE FIGHT MUST GO ON…THERES SOMEONE WHO WANT ME TO STOP SINGING THE SAME OLD SONG

SOPHISTICATE OPPRESSION AND PRETEND NOTHING IS WRONG 

I JUST ASK HOW LONG? HOW LONG BECAUSE IM NOT COMPLACENT 

YOU WANT TO CALL MY CONCERNS RACIST WHEN MY ACT IS NOTHING OF HATRED  

WHY CANT I TRY TO BREAK THE CHAIN OF LIES BUT THE KU KLUX KLAN CAN BE TELEVISED WITH IGNORANT DISCUSSION OF EFFECTIVE REASONING FOR BLACK GENOCIDE  

KILL OFF THE PROPHETS…KEEP THE NON BELIEVERS WHO HATE THE LEADERS THAT HELP AWAKE ZOMBIES ON THE RISE 

IMMEDIATELY HAVING TO MEET THEIR DEMISE 

THE PLOT IS TO DESTROY THE MIND THROUGH IMAGERY

WITH FIGURES THAT LOOK JUST LIKE ME... 

THROW AN ARMY OF US ON A BOAT TO CROSS SEAS JUST TO BUILD NEW WORLD CITIES 

ONLY TO LATER HAVE US TURN ON EACH OTHER LIKE TOTAL ENEMIES 

NO REMEDIES TO HEAL OUR SOUL… DONT THEY KNOW??

THESE BODIES WE ENTER STORE MEMORIES.

THE POISON SERVED IS THICK AND STILL OUR SYSTEM WONT REST CAUSE TRUTH IS OUTSIDE OF RACE ITS REALLY ABOUT GREED AND PROFIT.

WATCH A FEW MAKE IT BUT SOMETHING AINT RIGHT IF IT DONT EFFECT THE ENTIRE GENERATION. 

IM THE RULE BREAKER IN A HYPNOTIZED CLASS AND MAY MY WORDS GIVE STRENGTH TO THOSE WHO RESENT THE PAST  

NEW PAGES NEED TO BE WRITTEN AFTER THE WAR HAS PASSED

THE BATTLES ARE CONSTANT BUT CANT DESTROY THE CONSCIOUS OF SELF

RELENTLESS WITH FIGHT TACTICS TIL WE PUT TRUE HISTORY ON THE BACK SHELF 

ANCESTORS WAKING ME UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT REMINDING ME ABOUT THIS ONGOING FIGHT 

 I HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO BE AFFECTED BECAUSE IM SO WELL CONNECTED AND YOURE FREE TO REJECT THIS BUT ITS ABOUT BIRTHRIGHTS AND TO NEVER LET THE MADNESS HAPPEN A SECOND TIME AROUND  

LEFT FOOT FIRST TO STOMP EVIL DOWN.

Claircognizance



  


Eversince a child, I been what is known as Claircognizant. Some would say highly intuitive but it has its uniqueness. I decided to blog about this because theres a high percentage of people who have this gift as well (about 30%) and don't know the name for it but I have been so blessed to have a numerous amount of people recognize it and try to explain it to me, so I've been doing my own research on it because of my experiences and found the definition to be my truth. It is the ability to know something w/o being told or able to give a physical explanation of why/how you know it. You just KNOW. The claircognizant information will seem as if the information just comes from out of nowhere and it often have nothing to do with what you were thinking about. I  have to say that the information is coming from God, Spirit Guide or Higher Self whose putting in information (in the form of thought) into the mind. This can be a ton of information that is ‘downloaded’ into the mind. It can be insights about people and situations or very inspiring ideas/visions. You can even be able to receive information about future outcomes. Claircognizance information will have you take a leap of faith as oppose to your normal day to day thoughts. Most people who have this gift are more than likely to be very mentally-oriented people, analytical, logical, good at understanding abstract concepts and solving problems. Claircognizance is characterized by this strong sense of KNOWING that goes beyond logic and by the fact that the intuitive information comes into the thinking mind, not into the heart or the third eye. Last but not least those who have intense writing abilities and channel information into written form are utilizing Claircognizance. The writing feels effortless. While writing you are in what is known to be "in the flow" from a intuitive sense more than a creative sense. There are plenty of websites and sources to check this information out and test to see if this is really you, something been on my mind to share this for quite a while but didnt want to misinform about the signs. To those who feel like they fall under this category of extra sensory perception please be easy with the intrinsic knowledge because you dont want to make others uncomfortable by the information that comes speeding your way. Some will feel you are a "know it all" when really you are just exercising your god given gift that could be aiding their very own life.   Happy Thinking! :-)


God Bless,

POWER OF DREAM...FLYING CARS BY HONDA!



Honda with its motto the Power of Dream, is making another revolution in concept car design. Honda air is a new vehicle concept designed by Honda’s advanced design studio in Pasadena, California. The concept was created for the 1000 pound car design challenge put on by the Los Angeles Auto Show. The vehicle takes its lightweight inspiration from skydiving and roller coasters, using compressed air to powered its pneumatic regulator system.

This system utilizes turbo vacuums and external air-flow to regenerate tank pressure for extended range and increased boost for an estimated 100 miles. To keep the car lightweight, all components are mounted directly to the chassis, eliminating unnecessary structures. The exterior is made from vegetable based plastic wrapped around the body with an open-air style. the concept is estimated to weigh only 800 pounds.

MONETARY IMAGERY...PIC OF THE DAY!!!

48 Laws of Power-#43 the people who are best at appealing to people minds are often of a more poetic nature...this is because ideas are most easily communicated through metaphors and imagery. It is always good policy then to have in your pocket at least one artist or intellectual who can appeal concretely to people minds...Napoleon won over Goethe...Fredrick the Great had his Voltaire...it's dangerous, then, to alienate those who have power of expression and useful to pacify and exploit them.

SO WHOSE FAULT IS IT FOR THE CONSTANT TALK OF MONEY?

THE ARTIST, THE MACHINE, THE SYSTEM OR SOCIETY







This face you see is a real popular face, most would begin to judge her motivation by this image without knowing her story. She is the 1/3 of Dirty Money (the others include P. Diddy and Dawn from former group Danity Kane). She is a mother, wife, and a big giver to a foundation that stands for a righteous cause but this image wouldn't help because of how easily distracted people can be by image and maybe even celebrated lyrics of monetary gain when there are some way bigger schematics going on behind the image and talk of that ole mighty dollar.

Before I begin I do not want anyone to take this as a majority rules perspective but its a very interesting thing when it comes to the attention paid to a rap or hip hop artist. People think its superficial but you can't front on the grind & its really not fair to knock the hustle. I would use some of my lyrics to explain this paper chase you hear celebs (especially rappers) constantly talk about but I rather just flow with these thoughts. We see them flaunting and speaking of having it or getting more, sometimes you get sick because of how saturated this lust for wealth has become and its not the ideal message to send a child but it starts from home and they are not to be faulted. It's the society we live in. When you see a mass of people supporting it than you better understand the mind set of the majority, people that you live amongst, you now know what society you live in thanks to the artist.

I am not saying just because majority rule the system is right but to those who know better continue to pay close attention. To those who don't like it WAKE UP and seriously figure out what should be done and do something about it. I for one have my concerns about this monetary system and if I could think of another way, like a grand idea that the world can find peace in the exchange of goods than I would live for that idea and push it. I think its madness to pay for water and food but hey until I can think of a better way then I will continue to get my bread up to afford these things cause it keep my family and I physically alive. I feel these artist are forced to express what type of system we live in because its hard to get around it.

Speaking up and raising eyebrows is GREAT but pointing blame for this web that society agreed upon and gave their signature stamp on (before Hip Hop was even birthed) is so unfair to rappers and hip hop artist. If it's up to me and in my power my child may never know certain channels because I don't agree with all the programming. It's a parents job to raise a child, not hip hop artist so I will warn him about every and anything before he step foot out of my home. The creative artist has one real responsibility and that's to have integrity, they are giving you the image that they see, showing the world we live in through their perspective and putting it in art form, before rappers and hip hop artist there was still billions being made secretly while the poor work crazy hours away from loved ones just to eat and survive...Oooops that still going on.
