To start off......I would like to say the an album entitled "The Cool" by a hip hopper by the name of Lupe Fiasco is now only 1 month and 3 days away. PRAISE GOD!!
Im seriously excited. Here's a song with video. His latest single called "Superstar" featuring Matthew Santos. Its been out for a minute now but just WATCH! AHHH!
Some say "its just a cd."
and I say "Shut up, your just a cd. The Cool is a CLASSIC waiting to come out, waiting to blam through your airwaves. The ridiculous flow caressing your eardrums, enough lyrical content to teach a university class. Its the COOL!!"
Thats what I would say, Real Talk(shout outs to R.Kelly) no exaggeration.
AND.....On to the show.
I watched this movie the other day. It was assigned to me in my sociology class for some extra credit (come to find out its for 2%, nice!). But I go and find out that the movie is in German........and I would have to read subtitles........thats seriously as lame as.....ha, idk, that just sucks.
anyway, on the eve of the due day I sit back and start the movie at 10pm MY time and watch this thing. 2 hours later, I wished it could have kept going! haha, it was such a good movie, I was actually glad I had to watch it.
After a while you get used to the fact that your reading and aren't as annoyed as you were at the beginning.
Anyways if yall get a change to watch the movie......its called "The Lives Of Others"
And if you got any sense of what is going on in this country in terms of the gov and how its operating. You'll see some correlations, its kinda weird son.
I'm not gonna tell you about it because it will defeat the purpose of you watchin it.....seriously....

Sooooo....Ever since I went and saw the movie American Gangster, I've started to calling everybody i see. "My Man", I don't know why I cant stop, it's like an addiction now. And the fact that I'm trying to go see the movie again.......probbbbbbbably wont help that addiction.
Here's a couple things ive been meaning to write about.
There have been some crazy things going on in the world. Like the Pakistani President declaring the constitution moot and taking control of his country and pretty much acting as a dictator by imprisoning his political foes. Ummmm, WOW!
I don't know how much anyone cares but, as part of this country's government's "War on Terror" (since 2001), President Bush has given, over 10 billion dollars in aid to the Pakistani's. TEN. BILLION. DOLLARS. Mostly to their military so they can catch the ever elusive Osama Bin Laden. Well, we all know how much good that money has done because we have caught his main men and the man himself. Oh my bad, That 10Billion is straight out of your pockets in the way of taxes.
Oh wait, we haven't caught him? 6 years and billions of dollars later.....and we cant find the guy? I mean there aren't that many 6'6" people walking around over there in Afghanistan/Pakistan.
But I digress.
The President, Gen. Pervez Musharraf, has now given himself emergency powers and the law basically is what ever he says. Basically he is a Dictator now. The legitimacy of his re-election was going through the supreme court and on the eve of it's decision he canceled the supreme court. Haha, what a way to keep yourself in power.
The justification for this suspension of the constitution by Musharraf's people is that the country is in a "shaky security climate".
Ahhhhh, So now the Bush administration says that they are not going to stop funding the General's government even though he is exactly what the American government doesn't like, a Dictator.
Wait, we've been supporting dictators since the Monroe Doctrine to the School of Americas to Iran-Contra and now this??*** Gosh.
So as this plays out we will see if the General really does relinquish his powers as the parliamentary elections. And hey, maybe the recently returned from self exile Benazir Bhutto will come out on top.
***Just Google or Wikipedia those things If you don't know what they are.....
NORTH AMERICAN UNION
So I was surfing the internet (insert "cow-a-bunga" sound bite) and was journeying through the depths of of one of the best websites ever.....YouTube. Home of every video you ever want to watch. Except the type of videos that require you to make sure your door is locked and no one is watching (aka porno for all of you slow people). But anyways. I was watching a clip of the Lou Dobbs Show and he was talking about how President Gearge Bush, the Prime Minister of Canada Stephen Harper, and the President of Mexico Felipe Calderon are forming a Union with open boarders much like that of Europe.
It was conceived in 2003 with former leaders Vicente Fox and Paul Martin and current President G.W.Bush.
Upon further heavy research.......The Securities and Prosperity Partnership is coming into fruition. So why doesn't anybody know about this? Well, maybe the fact that democracy is thrown out the door when it comes to big business and making profits. I mean honestly, they have held meetings behind closed doors. The Commerce Secretary is giving talks in Mexico but news of this "NEW WORLD ORDER" that Bush Jr. calls it has barely received any light of day here in the states. I wonder why? Here are some clips about the issue.
Um, and money. Welcome to the the land of the AMERO. thats what the currency will be called when all this does happen.
Here is the website for the project www.spp.gov have fun with that and Fox news also reported about this too. But they said its not real and its just another conspiracy theory. But......
who can honestly believe what they say is fact. I mean the government even have a website up for the damn thing. I don't think you can just say its a myth......ahhhh Good old Fox News.
Big Ups to the Representatives and Senators who are standing up against this. It's now 2007 and the project is growing very fast. You have to be kidding me.
Wait, Your What?
Why is it that every time I meet someone and something comes up where religion comes into question and i declare I am a Muslim, i get puzzling looks and the statement of "oh i didn't know you were Muslim" or "Oh, your Muslim?" follows suit. After that there is an awkward silence where it seems like the person is tagging me with every stereotype possible for a Muslim. I'm expected to speak for the entire religion when one asks a question about why some people are doing bad things. Its hard enough being expected to speak for the entire black race (race is made up by the way, its not real).
I mean, does me being Muslim change the way you look at me? Recently I heard someone say "oh hes Muslim?"...................and? Does it really matter. I don't know why it does.
It's even more funny (as in ridiculous not comical) when you hear someone assume someone else is of the Islamic faith because of how they look or talk. HA, I really don't know what to say to that, I mean sure many Muslims are Arabs, but that doesn't equate to Every Arab being Muslim. It's like saying assuming every Catholic Priest is a molester because of some cases of that going on......Just don't judge....If anything, take that away.
And the previous statements don't just go for Muslims like myself, but for when anybody gives the little quip of "oh I didn't know you were......." about anybody different then themselves.
And on a WAY more positive note, Check for that Lupe, Wu-Tang, Ghostface, Nas, Scarface, J.Dilla, and DJ Hi-Tek cd's this 4th quarter and possibly the Three 6 Mafia and Beanie Sigel cd's too. I'm hyped SON!

See, ya are what ya are in this world. That's either one of two things: Either you're somebody, or you ain't nobody.
It is now 3:15 am here in AZ, and I just got back from the premier of a movie.
Not like famous people were there or anything but nonetheless. The guy who introduced the movie (Cine Capri baby) said we were the first crowd to see the movie in the entire state of Arizona.......YEA BOYYYY. Even though its not true, I'ma just keep telling myself that we were.
The movie though, was GREAT. Honestly, it was Denzel's best. I think its safe to say that.
The whole time, I never once looked at my phone to see what time it was, NOT ONCE. Eyes glued to the screen at all times. Even where there was no shooting or titties bouncing or cutting of the heroin bricks.......I was paying full attention.
From his quick rise to greatness filling Harlem's needs for that "BLUE MAGIC", to his fall, that movie was greatness.
The cast too was pretty tight. Denzel Washington, Russell Crowe, Common, T.I. RZA, Cuba Gooding Jr.
Could have found someone WAYYYYYYY better suited for Cuba's part, everytime i see him I think of Snow Dogs, he just dont come of as gangsta anymore, specially after that. The Boyz In The Hood days are no longer brotha. but i digress....
All of D.Wash's family in the movie, the crooked ass cops. Congrats everyone, round of applause.
Ive only clapped at the end of three movies while watching them in theaters. Hotel Rwanda, Borat, and now this.
Now the only thing left is the "oh F him cus he a snitch" mentality. Which the real Frank Lucas, and his enemy Leroy "Nicky" Barnes (Went by Nicky in the movie), did to shorten their jail sentence.
Now all these people these days are all against snitching until it affects them. When the opportunity knocks on their doors. They jump all over that shit. But when its not them or anyone they know......F it, who cares, don't snitch. SHUT UP!!!!
Best believe that if I ever get an opportunity to lower my sentence to turn in other bad people.....DONE. Don't even ask, I'll do it. I'm not trying to go to jail for someone else, or suffer for someone else. I'll bring as many people down as possible. and thats exactly what he did. Ain't nothing wrong with that.
And if you snitch? you die right? haha, you gonna die anyway playa. would you wanna do it behind bars, or in the real world. Your choice.
THE MOVIE WAS DOPE. 9 out of 10 BABY. There's no such thing as a 10. sorry haha.
