Words Said

Background

There has been so much said in the last few days.

Sometimes it is not quite topical.

It is really just people hijacking issues and wanting something to say.

Whether it is school shooting or whatever else is trending, it really does not matter.

People are angry, frustrated and just wanting to let off.

 

Friendships & Ties

Not having friends, associates, and ties to communities sometimes allows and excuses us to paint with bigger brushes than we otherwise would have.

When we are among friends we sometimes take the liberties we otherwise wouldn’t.

Physical spaces affords us that intimacy, but now sometimes now it is Web Communities.

 

Almost Naivete

We are probably at that point where speaking against someone that people look up to, will cause a bit of rancor.

In as much possible, just don’t to do it.

The stakes are high and will likely only get higher.

 

Words do matter

Words do matter.

  1. Miranda Rights
    •  You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you.
  2. Good Book
    • Gossips
      • Whoever would foster love covers over an offense, but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends. ( Proverbs 17: 9 )
      • Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. ( Ephesians 4:29 )
      • But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one. ( Matthew 5: 37 )
      • But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
        For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. ( Matthew 12:36-37 )
    • Uncareness
      • Whoever does not gather with me scatters. ( Matthew 12:33 )
    • Anger
      • …Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are members of one another.
        Be angry, yet do not sin.” Do not let the sun set upon your anger,
        and do not give the devil a foothold.…
      • Tremble, and do not sin; Meditate in your heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah. ( Psalm 4:4 )
      • for man’s anger does not bring about the righteousness that God desires. ( James 1:2 )
    • Walk
      • Act worldly of your calling ( Ephesians 4:1 )
    • Heart
      • Out of the abundance of the heart, the mind speaks ( Luke 6:45 )
    •  Doubt
      • an oath given as confirmation is an end of every dispute ( Hebrew 6:16 )

Public Spaces

With difficulties and sometimes headstrongness we come into our public spaces.

And, think that if we say things a certain way, we might make our points.

We sometimes riddle the other side.

 

Gaps

The truth of the matter is that we have gaps.

Some are obvious.

Parenting Gaps

We are experiencing a parenting gap.

And, it translates to economic gap, and within a generation or two into education deficits.

Uncorrected we feel and get comfortable with being who we are, where we live, what we do, and the words we use.

Peoples read into words and and take the viewpoint that “If you don’t care about me, reading from how you speak to or about me, why should I care about you“.

It is vitally important to our conduct how we dissect how much care about us.

If read wrong, our conduct is a bit forced or withdrawn.

 

Role Modeling

I think it is important to step in and help these young men as they are role models, whether they are ill prepared or not.

In too many cases they are all we have.

 

Affords

I hope that life affords you the opportunities to take some words back.  But, more so to care where you did not as much.

To re-arrange things and if unable to, to pray and hope God sends those more able.

 

Work to do….

Just the other day, one young man said

I still have a lot of work to do….

Don’t we all.

There is just too much to do that we ought not to waste “put downs“.

Undeserved put-downs are sometimes just what one needs.

Things said sometimes acts as great reminder and reasons to work harder.

You never run your mouth, and that’s a great quality
you never talking __ that’s something that you never see
Any issue, you just speak about yourself
do you understand all the people that you have helped

Lyrics

Come Back Home

 

I know it has been a while since we spoke
But I can see it in your face that you’re spiritually broke
I know you are modest and you don’t like to boast
but I always see you fighting and you never give up hope
you’ll be yourself again it’s gonna take a while
I know you are not happy you don’t gotta fake a smile

You use to be the best son to your mother
now you are stuck feeling sorry for yourself, under the covers
Be yourself with me, that’s all that I am asking you
I want you back, want you healthy want you laughing too
So when you’re feeling down and out with them shattered views
be a man, just do everything you have to do

You need to stop all them suicidal thoughts
and when you are going crazy, it is vital that you talk

I wish that you could see, everything that I see in you
It’s something special, and I wish you would believe it too

It is hard to pray when you are resentful at God, so odd
thinking you are in charge, but is really just a mirage
Barricaded, but I see you ‘re shoving hard
and if you fuck her, it will not cover them scars

Listen you seem distant from everything that you are going through
One of the strongest people that I ever met is you
You gotta pick yourself up and never turn back
everybody makes mistakes I hope you have learned that

 

It is rough praying to the same God that you blame
And, when it is time to go, God will find it suitable
Until then it is one foot in front of the other

 

You are going down south to get your head straight
Focus on improvement as you are cutting off the dead weight

and that stuff you are dealing with that’s slowing killing you inside

 

you got to move forward just be willing to try
You gotta find gratitude, you’re breathing, still alive
Yea, I know, you wanted to die just last month
the fuel was on the fire pulling triggers on gas pumps
So come back better, show everyone it’s a new you
you can do anything in this world that you choose to
This camouflaged agony’s really what we just call life
Trust me, I promise you, everything will be alright
You never let me down, and now I need a friend
I miss you Chas, and I’m praying that we meet again

Wale, J Cole, No I.D. AND Friendship

Introduction

Spent most of yesterday locked into my laptop trying to learn something new.

Never far from YouTube or Gossip Columns.

One of the click baits I clicked on is ‘Jay-Z Opens Up About Alleged Feud With Kanye West and Reveals “What Really Hurt” Him‘.

In the segment he brought up “No I.D.”, Ernest Dion Wilson.

 

Lyrics

Nas, J. Cole, No I.D.

In his track “Let Nas Down“, J. Cole spoke about No I.D. upping the ante …

Dion called me when it dropped, sounded sad but sincere
Told me Nas heard your single and he hate that …
Said, “You the one, yo, why you make that …?”

 

J. Cole & Wale

In his track “False Prophet”  on the second verse, J. Cole spoke about his good friend, Wale.

I got a homie, he a rapper and he wanna win bad
He want the fame, the acclaim, the respect that’s been had
By all the legends, so every time I see him, he stressin’
Talkin’ ’bout, niggas don’t fuck with him, the shit is depressin’
And I know he so bitter he can’t see his own blessings
Goddamn, nigga, you too blind to see you got fans, nigga
And a platform to make a classic rap song
To change a nigga life, but you too anxious livin’ life
Always worried ’bout the critics who ain’t ever fuckin’ did it
I write what’s in my heart, don’t give a fuck who fuckin’ with it
But in a sense I can relate, the need to be great
Turns into an obsession and keeps a nigga up late
Writin’ words, hopin’ people observe the dedication
That stirs in you constantly, but intentions get blurred

 

Wale’s Response

I’m on my way to Raleigh so grateful for that inspiration
I’ll see you at the game bro
Ralph

 

One way too aggressive nemesis, and these never-ending spells with bipolar depression all, the while progressing
Maybe I mind my business and count my blessings
Be a living testament, a walking embodiment for
Everybody that’s been endlessly tested
And maybe resent the sentiment that they rarely respected
Maybe I mind my business and count my blessings

 

I’m just gonna get my black ass in this booth, cut loose so I can buy papaya juice for my beautiful black baby
And I love you Zyla, but if this game kills your father
Know we started off as a passenger, put some passion in it
And some non-passive aggressiveness

 

Just know he toured the world with Ross and gave him his first platinum plaque that he ain’t even had to adlib, rap or even talk on
Nah this Folarin with the art of sad song that TT wrote and bad girl RiRi

 

While I watch these discount niggas buy their way in with their lay-away effort
And lay waste to the very game I did my best in

 

Battling my label
One way too aggressive nemesis, and these never-ending spells with bipolar depression all, the while progressing
Maybe I mind my business and count my blessings
Be a living testament, a walking embodiment for
Everybody that’s been endlessly tested
And maybe resent the sentiment that they rarely respected
Maybe I mind my business and count my blessings
Everyday is groundhog’s day
So what you say I anticipate, cause I heard it forever and ever and ever

 

Ain’t no way in hell the devil gon’ stop my endeavors, yes
Forever underrated ’til Undertaker makes his presence
And as we know, the utmost praise for those who cannot feel it

 

So maybe I mind my business and provide for my Zyla, her mama and my niggas
And one day buy a house for Big I, Emilola, Roberto, Diane and Jordan
So they can enjoy the journey I’ve endured that’ll probably kill me

 

I mind my business
I mind my business
Nigga mind your business
And in this dark time, if we don’t find a reason to smile
We ain’t never gon’ shine nigga

 

J. Cole & Cozz

Look, I never admit it, tryna get my brother acquitted
Yo’ tell the judge I be happy to pay him off if he’s with it
My flesh and blood, hauled off to the cell
I search for heaven as I see him getting lost in this hell
Headed for coffin or jail, to never try is the ultimate fail
But love is wanting more for someone than they want for themselves
Deep, I guess I love a lot
Because the more I do my thang the more I feel the guilt and shame that my brother’s not
Reminisce as we was kids screaming “Fuck a cop”
Guess he took it serious, for me that shit was just for props

Summary

Words come in so many different ways.

Some are public, while others are private.

With time we learn whether they are to hold us back.

Or whether they are to encourage us.

Prayerfully don’t mistake words to “Grow On” with ones “To Miss“.

Letting Cole have the last words…

But love is wanting more for someone than they want for themselves

Nas

Introduction

Years ago a good friend told me most programmers are writers.

People Blog because someone inspired them.

People sing and rhyme cause they seen someone do it before them.

 

Nas

Role Modeling

Not everyone is able to admit to having role models.

It is good to take note of people digging in, investing life and time to get better and hoping to change along the way.

 

Living It

From Nas’s Dad travelling to Africa, getting with Fela, and taking the name “Olu Dare“.

To Nas paying tribute to Rakim.

And, J. Cole giving it back on “Let Nas Down“.

Sharing a Birthday and producer with Amy Winehouse, he posthumously went back and collabed on a couple of things.

As he said it, we are born on the same day, her not being here don’t give me a pass.

Btw the date he shares with Amy is Sept 14. And, the producer is Salaam Remi.
