West Coast Rap Artist Bad Azz Gone At 43

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.

Is There A Difference In Being Looked At As Creative Artist or One With Talent?

Something hit me on this rainy, flood y day. the thought about creativity and talent hit me, and whether there’s a difference. So I wanted to touch on it, and in all honesty, I feel like there is a difference between being a creative artist, and a talented one. Being creative is a means of expressing ones gifts universally, and unlimited. Where you have one who is talented by, but also stands in limitation. And what I mean by limit is; the only recognition given is by someone else seeing and acknowledging whether you have some type of extra skills over someone else s.

But in all reality; everyone has some type of gift of creativity that is universal and beyond the limiting of those who would feel that they have the power to say whether the creativeness of someone else is good enough or naught. Creativeness comes from above, and talent comes from below. It really just depends on how you are able to look at it, but if you are able to see; then you will be able to see that, but creativeness tends to stand beyond what it means to be talented. The power given when looked at to be talented can also be taken and stripped away. As a creative artist, the only taking is what you allow to be taken.

If I used self as an example, this is what my thoughts would be: “I may naught in the eyes of those who feel that they have the power to see a worthiness in me, to be acknowledged as possessing a certain talent worthy of recognition in the eyes of those who hold the power to help. But, as a creative artist, I control the flow, and operation to how my work will be seen and critiqued by the eyes and ears of those who seize the moment, and opportunity to experience by choice in engagement”

Below is the song video “Man of Steel” (God’s 4lo). A song what one could see as an example of what it means to be a creative artist rather than be seen as a talented artist. There is no limiting my ability to be, and show to have a flow, and vision of creativeness that, I feel is important to me, and why regardless to whether talent is seen in my work or naught, it don’t stop my continuing flow of creativeness.

MAN OF STEEL

To me, it appears to be a favoritism game being played when it comes to talent, but as a creative artist you might be bothered a little by it, but when you know what I know you tend to take the good with the bad and allow that in itself to fuel ones ambitions even more to work harder towards being even more of stand up, and out as an artist who creates. Creating is an operation, like science and the flow possession of uniqueness beyond entertainment.

Me personally, I stand for the creative minds of artist who struggle to get their work to be recognized by those who could possibly help that creative artist’s work elevate by endorsement, support and guidance to how one can make a living off of doing what they love doing, which is their creative artwork. Anyway, I just wanted to touch on this because it crossed my mind today.  Long live the creative artist.
