Your Risque DJ

Radio has advanced throughout the years in what DJ’s can and can’t say on air. Lets take Howard Stern and Don Imus as an example, back in the 80’s and 90’s, the two radio host have stirred up controversy by expressing their- at times- harsh, liberal minded opinions and perspectives. Howard Stern was never afraid to tell a caller off and have the biggest rise out of the callers response, Imus known for his stubborn cowboy look and persona and along time rival of Stern has proved that he isn’t afraid to state his opinions- especially when it comes to women sports. But lets, in all reality, not bring that back up again. As I look back I can’t believe as a little middle school student, at the time, I was watching such a talk show host and finding him entertaining- little did we know, exactly what he was talking about and how he was talking about it.

Daily Prompt: Keeping Up with the Jones’s..”Lavish”

Daily Prompt: Keeping Up with the Jones’s..”Lavish”

We live in a materialistic Society

where  material items can define me

Put me on a shelve- mind as well buy me

You see the outside, but not the inside me

It seems like all my neighbors play the game to keep up with the Jones’s

Nice lawn, new car- feel like the government asking, “you own this?”

Loose a material item, replace it, loose a child, ha but you can’t clone kids

Even if you have the money do you need all the clothes and newest iphone 6

Probably not, so think about it, instead of spending you could be saving

but does it matter? You can’t take none of it when you’ve approached Rest Haven

Daily Prompt: Fear

Daily Prompt: Fear (The Un-Known)

An un-known force is moving in close and near

Makes you begin to think that there’s ghost in here

But it’s stronger and has the ability to host your fear

Minutes counting down, your writing this post in tears

What is it? That dark force? We can’t be like who knows or who cares

You begin to feel week from your hands all the way down to your knees

But you continue to fight it and finish the last words that your pen bleed

Blood stops in your veins, flashbacks; revealed the forgotten life you lead

Large portions of distortion and corruption lead you to; this is a devils deed

Like you’ve been gone, bed full of dead roses awaits you for your last sleep

As if we have no choice, the man decides whenever and whoever he’d like to reap

But we would like to thank him, for taking our soul from the world in such discreet

A Morning with Professor Griff

A Morning with Professor Griff

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.

From Your Heart….

As someone who has had a love and passion for telling stories and writing if there is one thing that I have learned with writing is that- the best writing is the writing that comes from the heart. The writing that expresses your inner emotions, feelings, beliefs and that is the kind of writing that will make a connection between you and your audience. The writing that expresses the struggles or feelings that we as humans all go through or can relate to or even the writing that not everyone can relate to but respect because of the expression in it.

2010 High School Coffee House Performance

2010 High School Coffee House Performance

Ever since a little kid I always enjoyed telling stories or coming up with creative ideas. I enjoyed entertaining, I loved movies and music and creating has always been a part of my life. As a child growing up and putting myself in the public eye within my class peers- you can believe I was exposed to many different opinions and perspectives towards me- As wouldn’t anyone else who puts themselves or are in the spotlight for the public eye, right?
