Pistol Packing While Following The X-Train In Kalamazoo

Well, it looks like peoples children are at it again. The X-Train is slowly making its way back on the scenes doing they’re reckless thing as they have the time of their life thinking that what their doing is right, but in real life is the wrong lane. Getting arrested for Pistol packing while rolling with the X-Train. But this is nothing new is it? I’ve touched on this before, and broke it down for my readers and visitors of the #knowledgeandmusic site/blog about when and how it started. And how it (X-Train) really is something that is being reintroduced, but in a more upgraded modern way. So how am I able to touch on this so well and what makes me a professional when it comes to speaking on this you might ask?

Well, because I am no stranger to it, and know it very well. I consider self as a professional speaker and (#Certified) to do so because I’m from the hood, and represented in and on the streets that your children are now growing up in and now are trying to do the same. I touch on it because I give a damn enough to in hopes that something said may help those who don’t get it, get it. For one, it is an attachment of a lifestyle in Kalamazoo that was way before those (Your Children) who are merely just picking up and carrying on something that was done way before their time, but just with a different name.

But, it’s naught as the same as people may think, because it’s a different age and time. Different drugs being taken, different alcohols being consumed. A different upbringing and different mindset. The is fact of the matter, and those who know, know. And lemme clarify something. This is naught really about right or wrong, wrong or right, but just telling it like it is. This isn’t about judging; this is about seeing, knowing and having a better understanding to have a better standing with what’s really going on and possibly why.

This is about setting the record straight and then work towards making corrections to the problem, which is???????? I’ll let you ponder on that, but in the meantime think about what I am typing because regardless to how bad you see it to be, and how much you will complain about it; truth is… you can’t follow through with any solutions when you can’t relate to something, naught trying to see and know better, and just may be a part of the aiding of the problem.

There’s nothing wrong with partying and having a good time, but there is when you’re showing to make it naught safe while doing so within your community. Why would you want to continue to think that it’s okay to be programmed and conditioned to be a part of and or contribute to the projecting of a negative light from your own city and community? And then when you have these people (Police) (Government) (Law Enforcement) putting pressure on us by enforcing (Statute laws) and (Ordinances) that make you feel like you’re being harassed, and racially profiled every time you get pulled over especially while rolling through the hood (North Side), and then you want to ask why? Yo a** know why, and if you don’t; then there may be some answers for you in some of the songs made like In These Dayz Of Tyme but it’s all on you to take a listen.

How can people show to naught forget about, but basically overlook the deaths of people who I actually know that lost their life while involved in what? Yep, this right here, the good ole X-Train. Do you really think that this is something that should be praised, looked up to and glorified? Do you think that this could be one of those type of possible generational recycled curses that people (Black People) should be working towards breaking and correcting? You decide. If you don’t talk to your children, take back control and stop showing to condone or these people gone do the controlling #CanUImagine how? They Workin Oon It just a little awareness for you, the people from yours truly, #theartist4thepeople.

What Is The Whole Ecstasy Line (X Train) All About (Free Song Download)

I know that, there are those of you who think that, the whole Ecstasy Line (Ex-Train) thing that goes on in Kalamazoo is something fresh and new, but is it? Well, if you know as I know, and come from my days in time you would know that, it’s naught. But, there are those who don’t know, so I thought I’d touch on it a bit.

So, what is the Ecstasy Line (X Train)? It’s basically a modern version to what many of those street katts from back in day use to do. They would form lines in they’re hot rides after the club, and mob thru the zoo, and Spring Valley. One of the famous slogans for this line was called: (Doing the Loc). And those who are from this era know that, that stands as truth.

So now decades later, you have these children of some of those from back in the day who are now growing up, and now you have what I call repeat of events of history. You have people children out in these streets doing what was once done, but on a whole new level, and an effective one, but in a more negative way.

How? You don’t have to take my word for it, you just look at the facts to the matter, and that the results, and impact that has been laid, and see it for what it is, and naught fool yourself. It’s naught what you do, but how you do it, and when it has no good intent behind it, it ends up eventually being viewed, and looked at as more nonsense, people involved especially your (children) eventually are made examples of and then falling off like bad dope.

So, I’ll say it again; this Ecstasy Line (X Train) is something that was adopted from something already done back in the day and just renamed and nothing more than just something looked at by your children to be cool to do while hanging out with their friends, and family enjoying themselves while coming through the hood in the zoo.

But naught only that, and what many of you are trying to dodge is the fact that, this is the promoting of and named after a man-made substance Ecstasy is it naught? This new way of coming through the zoo has a negative affect, and impact, and the reality is that, it has done more damage than good. People have been hurt, done went to jail, killed and people’s property has been damaged. Why? Go figure, ask yourself, but I’m pretty sure that ya know.


And let’s naught forget the lives lost, affected, those who done went to prison and lives disturbed due to the noise, busting of liquor bottles in the streets, and I can go on. By who? I think you know the answer. Now if I’m fabricating then by all means correct me, but this is the clear truth on naught what I can see, but you too can see if your being real with self.

You just can naught expect to see, know and receive what one say’s that one needs, and wants if we allow ourselves to accept the Un acceptable, condoning, and or participating in the acts, and things that we know are a part of the cause in naught being able to see better, and rise beyond the madness that we see going on within the communities that one occupies, which are problems created due to what?

You have those people who keep raging on about we need, but naught realize that, that need first starts naught without first starting at the root of the problem. “Fact” I can’t help but recall when I was one who was so fed up with the fact that, I had to come outside, and clean up broken glass in the street to prevent self or anyone else from getting a flat tire to the point where, I heard I think Buddy Hanna talking about it on the radio station, and I decided to call in and address it, and had my say on it. And naught only that, but then decided to get with my partner in rhyme MC My D and came up with a song on this topic called: “Why.” (Y)


See, the thing about it, I been addressing these issues, and we been touching on these things in our musical work for some time now. For us as Musicians/recording artist and music producers who #GiveIt2EmRaw for Kalamazoo, and for any other city and state; this is what and how we choose to reach back by bringing awareness in hopes to better enlighten our peers and those listeners of our creative musical work as ZooRillaz.

Guys who been through it, and know the real life style of the street, and hood life. See here’s the thing; we been Livin’ Oon the Edge, we been threw much of the obstacles that are now faced and praised by y’all children, and at one time we too praised it, but we made changes, and sacrifices to be who and where we are today, so we have no interest in knocking anyone for the choices they make, but don’t expect total agreement with things that show to naught be in alignment with ones cause.

Our only mission is to keep working towards giving back, by showing hope and exercising being the good recording artist’s that we need to be. To be good delivers of the word. And though you have those who would rather make attempts to mock, and secretly bite the style and parade on with this whole big I, little U messy mindedness as if what we strive to do is naught good enough and relevant with intent.

I don’t hate to inform you, but we continue to stay relevant, and as long as the creator (God) continues to help us on the mission in our real struggles to put music for the mind out we won’t be denied. What we do, and how we do it shall be done like no other, and we bow to none. The ones who call themselves doing any better is no more than a boaster.

“For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, Un thankful, and unholy.”

Now what does that tell you. I think you see many of those type don’t ya? also mentioning the fact to how those who say that they are for the good and change for Kalamazoo, and for unity, but at the same time show otherwise by trying to under play, undermine and try to say slick shhh…. in reference to the light bringer for the Zoo?

Anyway, I just let that work do the talking, and after, and or if you decide to take a listen to the song above “Why” (Y)  I leave it to you, the readers, visitors and listeners to decide especially those of you who are living in Kalamazoo, and can relate to this post. And please keep this in mind. If y’all don’t handle your children by taking the time these people will or the streets will claim their life, I’m out.

Leave a comment below, pros or cons and if there’s truth found in the song.



It’s naught just about us, we just want to know what you got if you got anything, and I’ll leave it at that. Good day to those who are able to see.
