What up my people. Dig, here’s a video to watch. You know the biz… A little bit of both #knowledgeandmusic coming from #theartist4thepeople. Just really expressing the fact that, All Black American People/ Native American People are naught willfully stuck in reverse.
What do I mean by that? Well, you’ll just have to watch the video, vibe with me, listen and ask your is what I’m saying showing you something. Something that you see many complain about, but don’t really want to admit that Black Americans are showing to be stuck in reverse.
I also bring awareness to this very serious issue in the song I did for the Battle of the Mind Album called: ” I Was Sent.” Awareness is fairness rite? And that’s what I am offering you, the visitor/watcher, reader, and listener. And my point?
Can you really move forward if you keep allowing self to moved, mind played with, ego stroked and deceived? I challenge you to watch, and express how I might be rite, or prove by showing where I’m wrong. Are black and african american people showing to be that conditioned and comfortable?
Caught wind of this earlier and wanted to do this post. Why am I doing this post? Because I grew up listening and supporting West Coast Artist. I use to get my buy my tapes and cds from Flipside and Boogies Record shop. I’ve always felt a bit connected with this artist, didn’t really know why at the time, but I kinda do now.
To be honest, as I always am. I watched, listened to and even supported this artist’s work while on my own walk in life. Why? I guess it was because I could feel and relate to him, his personality and vibe especially when he did his ft. on the song “Krazy” from the Makavelli album, naught even thinking about the fact that it was all through time, and generation at that time.
I said something in one of my post on my social plats earlier saying that: “We Get It But Don’t Even Really Get To Enjoy It.” I mean that’s what it appears to be looking like to me, now ask me OR someone who you may feel is more worthy to ask is it true or naught, I’m just the one to bring it to manifest now the question is… WHY?
So lemme asks, does it always have to be and end like this? What do I mean by that you may be wondering. And why didn’t a fly a** gangster loc’d out pic of his… go up on this post instead of the one you see? #canuimagine?
Well because if you know what I’m all about then you would know that there’s a reason why this pic was received and went up.
It was picked because to me, it’s a picture fused with a possible message. But what message? A message that should help than hinder. That “you ain’t gotta be in jail if you’re doing time.” It’s shows the real, a picture of a different struggle. From what I read, on his Instagram, he was promoting his new album.
He also did an interview with The Art Of Dialogue 6 days before his death.
He had a 10,000 bond, didn’t get bonded out and died how many days before he went to court? 4 days. He was supposed to have a hearing tomorrow, which is the 13th for a domestic case. Here’s what y’all need to recognize. There is something called: “Life beyond” the other. “What is success if you can’t enjoy it?” And though he kicked the hardcore, loc’d out gangsta hood life style lyrics.
For me, he also played a part where he showed the struggle, and gave a message to how it’s hard on katts from our time, but it a must that katts like us keep axing the obstacles down.
Could there be more to his passing? Pretty sure it is, but what is the message or is there one. More to touch on in the loss of another artist in the entertainment and music industry. From one artist to another Love N Light Bad Azz my condolences and 🙏 go up and out to his family and friends.
♒💨Sent to do what!? That might be that question that one would ask self. Well, as a man/artist thinketh, I find self only having a vision. One of how there are those in life who are important to me, if only I was in a much better position, which I so show to work hard towards reaching daily to be in. A position where I would be able to help those who truly show are in need, and worthy. There are those who I think about who truly deserve my support, but when when reality kicks in, and you know your own life situations that you are dealing with. And if your life is as stretched out as much as mine; that clearly is shown. I’m always left with that lingering question to self: “How the F___ can I?”
I was sent only to bring the possible, and tell it like it is… be it by and through one’s intellectual, or messages within the gospel. But then I take a very good look at other people who project that they are in a VERY GOOD positions to do much, but yet those type do naught do as I strive to find the will to do. Sound confusing to you? Or are you able to see where I might be going with this.
I must make it very clear to how I strive daily to project through my ethics of creative workings to reach goals in hopes to be able very soon, to show how important things are that I touch on, because when you know how it is, you know how it is….. And knowing shall give you either the feeling to give a damn about other people who you say you give a damn about, or it won’t.
Ask self: “What are people who you look up to, and praise acts show? Ask self and even count how many times people have shown to flat-out just let you down. Is it safe to say that the feeling of abandonment, betrayal, feeling turned on is naught a very good feeling? Is yes, then is this naught what you clearly are seeing these dudes and dudettes making it look really good with the talk, but show otherwise? You have those who are making it like money and power is the magic pill for the ongoing problems with these temp together we family, we this or that only to be disappointed by those same people who promo’d that deceptional messy mindedness. Who really shows to have you in your time of need? Is it your favorite celebrity? Rapper? Entertainer? Who?
What I would encourage as I always do is for one to start taking a better look at those who say they love you, care about you, pretending to be down and there for you unconditionally? And this is especially for these children (YOUR CHILDREN) and even mine who are suffering mentally from a lot of this, but yet never ask yourself are you really supporting those who you say that you love? How much do you really like and or love your friends and that goes for shaky ways of so-called family too on and off Facebook and or online social networks.
I also found something very interesting. “Is Facebook helping you to like projected face (Ego’s, Attitudes and illusional make believe), only to unlike God? 😯 Meaning, one’s faith is being replaced. Click Here to read more —>Is Facebook Helping Kill The Faith? Do you show to be more or less connected socially with those when offline would be the question for you. How does it feel to feel as if you’re being replaced?
Hey! I just challenge it all, because when you know better, hopefully one will choose to see things for what they show to be, and naught what they appear to be. If you’re out here showing to be with and support those just because of what you see they have, and the image is projecting and catering to that fantasy and desire in your own world (Mind). You are setting self up for a much more unsettling face off down the road.
Do you owe anyone anything to anyone? No. But I also agree to disagree. Why? Because at the flip of the coin you just might, it just all depends on one’s mindset, heart and willingness to want to see how important you just may be to someone in dire need. And this is part why I do what it is that you clearly see, and I’m able to because I work hard at it, and God knows that I’m trying and naught just for me. #canuimagine? The #battleofthemindis one that ongoing #inthesedayzoftyme.
When they call themselves thinking that they’re getting away with anything that they do, and or have done to you. You have to make it clear that, (Well I do anyway) that, I forgive, but naught forget that’s how I roll. It’s very hard to trust people in these dayz of tyme. Why? because they have made it that way by doing the things that they do to those who have shown to have them unconditionally, but in return is letdown, turn on and betrayal.
So, instead resulting to the option of going back to being how I used to be, and or swaying to the ways of those who’s actions show where they are in mind. I choose to work harder towards the showing of a much more kinder heart in one’s thoughts, ways and humbleness flowing through me. This also can be looked at as the revenge (Vengeance Is Mine) that is said to be the creator (God’s). One that will be administered for me.
So I move as I move, and do what I do. Continuing to stay on track and path as I strive to elevate as I go. Struggling and striving in this world full of truth mixed with lies, and people who pretend to love, and care for you, but they really don’t, but hey still I rise. Because regardless how they show to naught be with and for me, I’m just doing what was asked of me. Showing the better side of me through my knowledge and music creativity. Press play and feel the pain of #theartist4thepeople. Everyday is the battle of the mind.
“Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.”
Now, if you took the time to listen, and read, you just may see how relevant this really is especially when you know if some people nowadays show to clearly say, and do shhh… that places you in a space and position within one’s mind to feel some type of way and go there on them. People be doing shhh… that they should know they have no business doing, and saying things that; the era and generation I came up in would getchu served up like a dish on a platter. That rule still stands, but these other people (A particular government) have something else in mind. I won’t get into that now, but I will direct you to thatbattle of the Mind albumwhere you’ll find some very interesting thoughts on the world we are living inin these dayz of tyme. Now the song above is actually going to be on my next drop, which is called: “Certified The Ep.” which I will be putting out as soon as I figure out the cover and label work. But in the You Tube video, I express while I illustrate. And, if you from Kzoo and or know about the history when it comes to other artist who were doing their thang musically and well known in the Zoo.
Then I think something will catch your attention, and may have you like: “Damn, that boi Rilla on point. See, that’s the thing, I’m naught trying to stress to be the best, I just tend to be the best how I do, and I know how to support other artist even if they don’t show to do the same. All the shhh…. I done went through, and still going through. “Man of Steel” is how I have to feel, because mafas out here wanna see you penetrated, and laugh when you fall. But throughout it all, I asked for help and guidance from the most high almighty (God) who helps me to be humble in mind, and let my kindness be that revenge best served cold.
It is showing to be a proven fact that, the battle of the mind is more real than you could ever imagine and admit especially to self.
Let me give a good example. Is it naught true that just having to feel like people have done you wrong, turned on you let you down and betrayed showing to be less trustworthy and possibly did it with intent clearly is an unwanted one? What do I mean by that? I mean exactly what I said, and how I put it. Be naught mistaken by what I said and say:
“you will have those who you thought was real, really cool, down for you, solid, and trustworthy and then all it takes is a little push on one’s mind by simple misunderstandings, which then create big fall outs.”
You see it going on all the time do you? You probably just had one yesterday, today or even a week ago. Do you naught see this everyday? Do you or have you experienced this personally? I can’t speak for you, but I damn sure can speak for self. I personally have been through it, and I see it happening all the time. Lemme make self very clear. You gone have people in life who you will cross paths with you in time for whatever the purpose and reason set. And doing so, things will appear to be all good until? Situations pop, attitudes flair, differences project and then ego’s clash. Why is this?
Seems like a choice to me, in my Kanye West voice 😆 even though I been administering these type of thoughts for the longest, but naught to take anything from another man/artist, I’m just saying though time don’t lie, people do. So when you choose to look at what has been expressed above can you see now what the battle of the mind could possibly be? We go through this battle EVERYDAY whether you like and or feel like it or naught, you gone go through it. Why you may ask. Maybe it’s in order for you to see, and experience in order to grow in Mind, Heart Spirit and Soul. Or maybe it’s just because there are lessons in one’s own walk in life that need to be learned.
Either way, it’s all a battle. I’ve been campaigning this whole Battle of the Mind thought demo since 2009 up to now. And if you know or know of me, then I think that you would know why. Much of what you are seeing some of your people, and favorite rapper’s who you look up to, and support so proudly and willingly, and you care so much about are naught doing nor going through nothing that one hasn’t already expressed and shown and still showing to go through, and that’s the battle of the mind in these day’s of time.

All the hard times, all the reaching out for support for help, the encounters with police, and locked up shhhh…… especially when it comes to your children, I done been there, done that, Rilla. The experience of so-called friends abandoning ship, crew (Label and Friend Hopping) and turning on you, “Fried Or Foe, you never know until their actions show.” I know it and know how it all feels. The battle of the mind right? I would say so. So, the next question would be then…….. how do you fight such a fight? Good question if you are one (the reader) that decided to ask.
Clearly nothing that those who show to think and thought they had it all figured out, didn’t and don’t. I mean it’s sad when you have to continue to carry that feeling in thought to constant letdown by people who you invested time in and trusted only to be letdown, disappointed and betrayed. Why is this? Why do your own so-called homies, team, squad and whatever other label and title you choose to call it why do we see this taking place especially among st our people?
You would think that, the money, power and success would and supposed to aid and help, but it’s showing to be just the opposite. Look at what and how people act when they are able to cease the moment of opportunity (Position of Power) only to show to become corrupted in mind in the end. Am I lying? Call me on it then, but come correct and with proof in your so-called truth. People do this to one another, and then try to make un excusable excuses to why they did and or do what was did or done? Battle of the mind right?
These are just some of the many obstacles in life that many of us have, and or possibly will face especially if you are a rap artist, rapper, hip hop artist and whatever genre you decide to represent for. Be it your dealings in the street life, the music game or both, just trying to deal with either is a big task and you best be ready for it, or prepare to go through all that you are seeing taking place right be 4 ur eye’s.
Hopefully I was able to touch the mind, heart and Spirit of you, the possible visitor and reader of these thoughts I type. May you find something I have touched on, helpful, fruitful and will help you better see and deal with your obstacles and the battles that you may face in life and or in the music game.
