I’m battling a migraine so I’m going to make this quick. In January 1923 a little town in Florida called Rosewood a massacre occurred. A white woman in a neighboring town made a false claim she was raped by a black drifter.
The events sparked from this lie resulted in black’s being hunted down and lynched for about 6 days. Rosewood was a predominantly black town, and the residents left their homes to hide in the woods. Rosewood was literally burned to the ground.
They say the casualty count was only 6 blacks and 2 whites. But reports differ, I’ve heard upward 40 or more blacks were hunted down like dogs and exterminated.
Look up the movie Rosewood with Don Cheadle, but be forewarned, you will be hurt and pissed off.
Racism is wack, let’s do better!Read more
Coming in at #3 for my #Top10HipHopLoveSongs is Pharcyde with “She Said”
Most want agree and would say “She Keeps On Passing Me By” is a better love record, but not I. This joint produced by Dilla goes too hard.
1st verse was random but Fat Lip saves the day in verse 2 with word play and painting a picture of a night on the town solo that reminds me of my nights alone on solo missions as he “bounced to House of Blues and slid in free with tennis shoes, sweatshirt jeans and no I.D”
Then he see’s her…. Let the word play flow “so i commence to mackin to baby to see what’s crackin maybe get her back to the cabin and start attackin. Threw back a shot of yack and started jabberin, jibbin, fibbin, and ad libbin just to get her to my crib and”….
Fat Lip’s failed attempts to get to the promise land and still let her stay was oh so real. Crazy how she told him “Oh like that!? You know I don’t get down” (ha been there before)
Then Slim Kid brings it home with the melody and “dances with the silhouette’s beneath the moon”
So whenever that girl says “it’d be good if you stay with me tonight” just make sure you grant her the wish!Read more
