Like, whoa.

First day ran long and I completely forgot about the Zulu Nation Emergency Meeting tonight. Hope some of you were able to go.

In other notes of forgetfulness, I have to pay respects for the loss of a true soldier.

Seems like a frantic situation, eh?

If I've learned anything from this cat, always check the b.

Dig Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson, coming soon to a museum near me. Caught a preview and talk from her and it was all off the hook. Soulful and fulfilling for the soul. Her message of knowledge of self certainly seems to fall on a lot of deaf ears... but those who hear it, sing it. And those are the moments to treasure. Hell, if even LL can appreciate the niceness in niceness (however twisted it may be), don't we have the capacity to celebrate the beautiful things around us?

So, a peace twist to talkin' isht about the '80s -- here's a series that reminds us of the good music that came out of it. I don't care if you've all heard this Eric B and Rakim; if you know all the verses already, learn the sung parts, too. Man Parrish brings us deeper, it's ok to rump shake. We're only here for a minute.
