“In the land of plenty, we still have nothing…we let whats valuable slip through our fingers while we try to grab & hold on to things that hold no value, at all.” me, myself & I

Dear Black America: Stop letting shiny trinkets distract you from whats really going on. Open a damn book, ask questions, challenge ideas, take your blinders off & realize that you’re in a war & you’re losing! The devil wins through distractions & deceptions & when he’s really being cocky, he puts the truth right in your face because he knows that’s the last place you’ll look!

Stop letting people control your life & take your control back! You can’t cure symptoms without acknowledging the disease! Now let’s fix this crap…I’m game, are you?

So the internet is blazing n a Frank Ocean frenzy. My only problem is that everyone is applauding that he came out the closet but I read the letter. Did he? If they are basing this declaration upon the letter content, then we read 2 different stories. Yes, he says one summer he fell in love with a man, an unrequited love but was there anything else. Does he say he’s had a relationship with a man or men, is he attracted to them or did he have an deep emotional connection with this one individual that changed his outlook on love? I never assume things & it will be hilarious when the next letter talks about his second love…Keisha(not weed). Im just sayin…I wont say & agree that he’s gay until he says it or I see a sextape, lbs.
Im not sure what to think, or even if I really care cuz to each its own…just keep making music. I just need people to stop being so quick to hop on a bandwagon. Anderson Cooper said, I’m gay, always have been, always will be. Frank Ocean said that now he has no more secrets and told a story of a love affair that never really was.
Whether true or false this open letter is a brilliant marketing tool that neither ties him to one side or the other. It allows him to be loved & accepted, pitied & praised by both parties without really saying much. Brilliant.

Always interesting when you look at something from someone else’s pov…

So, 1st…I love this song even though it goes against everything I stand for but its low key intense & funny as hell to me.  2nd, I want to remake this song & create a video for it…I would kill it!  I would show up at the wedding in a black wedding gown & veil with Jodeci boots on, I would be singing in the mirror with mascara running down my face in a teddy. I actually have the treatment written out, I just don’t have the focus to execute it…who’s game?

SN: I don’t think a man should be singing this song but thats neither here nor there!

Blackmail by Donell Jones: Enjoy!

Idk, who cares, listen 2 the song, enjoy the video, buy the album, support the artists & tell Common to call me I want 2 have a war of minds with him, I cant wait to lose to him…in my defeat I will obtain victory!!!!! Knowledge is power & I want his, u know what Im gonna just give him his own post cuz I can go On & On(bam, I made it relevant 2 Erykah again)!  Ha!
