Jay Electronica - Road to Perdition

[Intro: Ronald Reagan]
“And they say if we’ll only avoid any direct confrontation with the enemy, he’ll forget his evil ways and learn to love us. All who oppose them are indicted as warmongers. They say we offer simple answers to complex problems. Well, perhaps there is a simple answer—not an easy answer—but simple”

[Intro: Jay Z]
I got these niggas, Breezy!
Don’t worry about it

[Verse 1]
I got that black on black skin tone, actual-fact syndrome
That’s why I dropped the jewel on every verse you heard me shit on
Okay, it’s a Slumdog opera
The tale of a king whose name wasn’t on the roster
My road to glory was Road To Perdition
And Act II: The Turn is just the memoirs with no omissions
We came a mighty long way from standing near the stove
In the cold, the greatest story ever told
The realest niggas see the pain in my story boards
The true believers say, “Wallahi, I support the boy”
My life feel like a highlight reel
This is lightning striking, feel how the Zeitgeist feel
Get a slight chill

[Bridge: Jay Z]
I got these niggas, Breezy!
Don’t worry about it

[Verse 2]
My swag is on 1.21 gigawatts, 10 trillion kilowatts
Hardcore Thriller pop, Michael Jackson, nigga rock
Google me, baby, understand where I’m coming from
My destiny’s to hit a grand slam when my number come
All hail the lyrical, Grand Wizard Imperial
Nigga signed the dotted line with Hov, that’s a miracle
And I ain’t leave the thugs alone
The humble and the meek will surely inherit the mud we on
And shoot up every club we clone
The flow is too atomic
The poetry’s too Qu'ran-ic, the young prophet Muhammad
And I could drop a verse to change the whole vibration
The whole Roc Nation, the whole Live Nation
So pour libation
Beware, but prepare for the polarization, it’s the globalization
Warn all the clergymen and notify Satan
I been waiting, this the notarization, I been patient

[Bridge: Jay Z]

[Verse 3]
A thousand kisses to the haters cause they made me greater
A thousand wishes from a million slaves could raise a savoir
A thousand disses to these dickheads at these major labels
From Big Daddy Kane to Big Daddy Cain and Abel
You pay a cost to be a boss, nigga, I paid the wager
Mastered both sides of the force and plus I made my saber
Yes sir, I’m a soldier of love
Drowning all my sorrows and woes in the club
My white boys say, “that shit you spit last year, bro
Was like a real fine Merlot and a cashmere throw”
Some black chicks say he ugly, white women they love me
My Asians and my mamis don’t put nothing above me
I call it as it happen, the art of quality rapping
One autobiographical chapter could start up the rapture
And even though I walk in the narrow valley of death
All I see is green pastures, bitches screaming from the rafters

Kanye West sitting down with BBC Radio 1′s Zane Lowe

“Hip-hop has always been controversial, and for good reason. When you watch a children’s show and they’ve got a muppet rapping about the alphabet, it’s cool, but it’s not really hip-hop. The music is meant to be provocative - which doesn’t mean it’s necessarily obnoxious, but it is (mostly) confrontational, and more than that, it’s dense with multiple meanings. Great rap should have all kinds of unresolved layers that you don’t necessarily figure out the first time you listen to it. Instead it plants dissonance in your head. You can enjoy a song that knocks in the club or has witty punch lines the first time you hear it. But great rap retains mystery. It leaves shit rattling around in your head that won’t make sense till the fifth or sixth time through. It challenges you. Which is the other reason hip-hop is controversial: People don’t bother trying to get it. The problem isn’t in the rap or the rapper or the culture. The problem is that so many people don’t even know how to listen to the music.” -Jay-Z, Decoded

Let Lupe tell em. #Freestyle

I honestly have to say… I am feeling what Kanye West has to say more than ever.

There have been a lot of things I’ve had to deal with in my life, because of how I look and who I am. 

What Kanye West stands for, in my eyes, is someone who doesn’t want to allow people to keep restricting the growth of people, particularly of P.O.C. (People of Color) 

He, along with Jay Z, remain important figures for the inspiration of the youth. As they continue to grow into their success, they will allow many others to follow in their footsteps to do all of the great things they have been able to accomplish. 

I would never pretend these two men are perfect, but let the first man without-sin cast the first stone.

I hope they continue to be blessed with favor, as they blaze the way for other’s, and start to right the wrongs of the American history that we all know so well.

The people who hate on these two individuals, will find their hate-growing more and more, as they will not be the only ones who break these invisible walls and glass ceilings that have been put in place.

Just some of my thoughts.
