Archive for the ‘ Uncategorized ’ Category
In this episode of BWTG, I Build on being humble while acknowledging yourself as the Supreme Being.
In this new episode of “Build with the God,” I build on how we can turn the mistakes we make into lessons we learn from. I draw from the Supreme Alphabet, the 1-40 Lessons, and, most importantly, Supreme Mathematics.
In this episode, I’m building about the Supreme Alphabet, the science of love, healthy relationships, and the unalike attract and alike repel.
I’m bringing back my #TopTuesday series (a thing I started earlier this year where I released a music video every Tuesday such as this) except this time it won’t be just music videos. It will be a surprise every week. So to kick it off, I’m releasing this new song produced by Brahms (who also produced “Can’t Buy Swag“) and also some exclusive behind the scenes footage of the recording session. Download/Stream the track “Been Broke, Been Rich” below.
My new album “Le Classique de Bayou” drops January 31st!
Before I begin my eulogy as a fan of Gil Scott-Heron’s music, I want to recognize first and foremost that this man was a father and a friend to many people in his personal life. They knew him better than I ever will get the chance to. These people will miss him more than any of us music fans and my heart goes out to these loved ones and family members.
I will always put this man’s name first and foremost if I am ever asked who inspires me the most musically. I remember my father used to play “1980“ occasionally and I loved the song. His songs and poems resonated with me during times of hardship and joy and provoked me to think critically of the world. If nobody else cared about his songs, I did. But I am not alone. His music and life laid some of the groundwork that would pave the way for this thing we call “Hip-Hop” or “Rap” to come along. Sampled innumerably, probably one of your favorite rap songs wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for this man.
Alas, when the music stops, we must all once again become mortal men. And mortal men die. Mr. Scott-Heron returned to the essence of everything (as the Gods would say). But, before his passing, he left behind a catalogue of music that will resonate with some people until the day they return to the essence as well… and that’s possibly the highest accomplishment attainable regarding anybody’s life-long work.
