If your wondering whose in this picture then you should probably have a lesson in some of the realest and most powerful hip-hop. Besides myself, P-Rice, on the left is the emcee, lecturer and head of the Security of the First World Professor Griff of Public Enemy. Professor Griff paid a visit to Westfield State to present a lecture on Black History with a side of hip-hop. A very knowledgeable, personal and real guy; Professor Griff educated us with new point of views, perspectives and facts within Black History that were new to me and also talked about the hip-hop industry in which we wish he could of talked more about but due to time- it was cut short.
To relate back to my last blog post when I was expressing my feelings about the music we played on our show and our hip-hop theme appealing to the masses- we were proved wrong the other day, in the sense that real old school hip-hop will never fade off the map. 20 years later and such groups like Public Enemy- still make noise, conversation and debate. Even if the airwaves are polluted with the sugar-pop rap music we hear now a days- this will be the only time will hear it- as real art and culture, live and last forever throughout the years.
What’s up everyone? I hope y’all hungry cause why wouldn’t you be if your on a blog site entitled “Bowl of Rice”? But we aren’t here to exactly talk about food, let me introduce myself, I go by the name P-Rice. I received the name through my earlier “rap career” in late middle school-early high school. I was the only kid recording mixtapes from my bedroom back then in my little suburban town and had the balls to sell them at my school. Looking back there were somethings I wish I did differently, as I haven’t perfected my style as an artist quite yet back then or even now, but my peers gave respect because I knew how to “hustle” (in this so called rap game), knew how to hold my own and I could freestyle my ass off for days. Peeps still put me on the spot to go spit some of that “fire”- why you always see me walking around with a water bottle- my mouth always burning! (owe!) ha ha but before I get too goofy on y’all and you all flee my blogspot thinking I’m some nut-job; but hey sometimes you gottabe a nut job to be in entertainment 😉 because what kind of boring ass dude is entertaining? Someone with a story to tell or stories to tell with a unique kind of personality or fun personality is someone whose entertaining..before I look at myself in the mirror anymore and get so big-headed my head is going to blast off my shoulders like a teenage girl popping her pimple in the mirror before she goes to school in the morning- Let me tell you what my blog is going to be about..I already told you guys that as, for a long time, I wrote hip-hop lyrics, performed hip-hop music as a serious hobby but when I got to college in the Western Masses I started and hosted my own radio show which has been a success for 3 years entitled “The P-Rice Show” on 89.5fm WSKB. For those that don’t know what the “Western Masses” are- it is what we called the cities/towns/region in Western Massachusetts. So like Springfield, Westfield etc. on and on. “Bowl of Rice” is basically a blog that will follow my radio show, The P-Rice Show, follow what is going on in our society today (I guess…)..and a majority of opinions and perspectives from myself, P-Rice involving all sorts of random topics involving life, the media, entertainment industry so on and so on. I know the blog is entitled “Bowl of Rice” and your probably thinking what a plain meal, right? The bowl of Rice is only the side dish…P-Rice is the full meal..so pull out your spoons (and please don’t take that in any other way) and dig right on in..cause will soon have our blog flourished with pages. So for now enjoy our welcome page and our radio show which will be back on air this week! September 18th, 2013 (6-8pm Wednesday Nights Eastern) 89.5fm WSKB or if your not from around the area tune in here: http://tunein.com/radio/WSKB-895-s22830/ Enjoy and Please since it’s monday…enjoy a little clip from one of our favorite movies: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2AB9zPfXqQQ
