Lauren London gives emotional tribute to Nipsey Hussle

  1. Text Message from 2016-Jan
    • “Ermias, I’m in bed with you while you’re sleeping and I wanted to tell u something. I want you to know I feel real Joy in my heart when I’m around you. I feel safe around you. Protected. Like a shield over me when you’re around. I am totally myself with you (which is prob why I’m annoying) because I don’t wear a cool mask anymore lol.”
    • She continued, “You’ve made me into more of a woman. You’ve given me an opportunity to really love a man. You’ve been with me while I’ve been sick. Through my fears. U have encouraged me and inspired me to reach higher. I’ve learned so much more about myself with you. You’ve been my turn up and my church. I wouldn’t want to go thru this journey with anyone but you. I look up to you in a lot of ways and strive to educate myself more like you have. And when we’re at odds…. I feel defeated and sad, knowing we are so much better than that.”
  2. Memorial ( Link )
    • Self Taught
      • I’ve never felt this type of pain before but it lets me know that God is alive. His soul was majestic and he was the strongest man I’ve ever knew. He was a gentle father, a patient leader and a divine light, he was brilliant. He researched everything, completely self-taught and constantly speaking knowledge. He would go to bed and listen to these audiobooks in his headphones and I would tease him but I really thought that was the coolest shit ever about it.
    • Morning
      • In the morning when he’d wake up, he’s played music for the kids, light his sage and burn it around the house to make sure our energy going outside would be uplifted and can handle the say. My pain is for my 2-year-old who won’t probably remember how much his dad loved him. This is something I don’t really understand but Ermias used to say that you can’t possess people, you experience them and I’m so honored and blessed that I got to experience such a man.
    • Testing
      • The game is gonna test you, never fold. Stay ten toes down. It’s not on you, it’s in you and what’s in you, they cannot take away and he’s in all of us.
    • Love for LA and their everlasting bond.
      • “To Ermias, the love of my life, you know what it is. Grief is the final act of love,” she said. “My heart hears you. I feel you everywhere. I’m so grateful that I had you. I love you beyond this earth. And until we meet again, the Marathon Continues.”

Samiel Asghedom Speaks about His Brother Nipsey Hussle at Memorial

  1. If I die today, I made the set proud
  2. Legit
    • Became a teenage
    • Saw the route he was going
      • Did as much as he was doing, keep him out of the streets
    • Music
      • The Only thing we may be able to do, is may be get this music thing going

    • Wants
      • I wanted to see if we could make something legit
      • Something legit for us to attach ourselves to
      • He ended up doing it
      • Giving us something
  3. Heartbreaking
    • After
      • After all this, bro, “go out like this”
      • It doesn’t make sense
      • fas not around to see the music go through
      • Couldn’t undo it
    • No Understanding
      • No Understanding to what I thought I understand
      • Something pass this
    • Last Thing
      • Proud of Bro
      • Wanted other people to go
      • Bring it back
      • Inspiring
      • So many plans
      • Lot
        • Brought the Lot, don’t know how we did it
        • Went through with the police
        • 30 day notice
          • Kicking us out
          • District Attorney
            • DA told police
        • Buy the lot
          • Instead of kicking us out, we can sell you the lot
        • JP
          • Close and get the lot
  4. Victory Lap
    • Get money and leave
    • No clue on what he is going to do
    • Heart and Soul on Kinshaw and Clauson
  5. Talk About Dying
    • Asghedom also said the two used to talk about death.
    • “We don’t know if we’re going to go at 80, 60, 30. Or 20,” he recalled, his voice finding power. “The one thing is that when you go, you go the right way. You stand up for what you believe in. You put your money where your mouth is. And you never fold. Never let the pressure sway you from doing what you want to do. Never let the politics stop you from coming around and staying around. And I hope everyone knows that’s what bro did. Bro stayed and he died on Crenshaw and Slauson.”
  6. Something Pass this
    • Three years older than Hussle, Asghedom was so clearly heartbroken that there was a question of whether he could deliver the entire speech. Asghedom gripped the microphone tightly in his right hand and stared downward, his voice often cracking in emotion. But his long silences were all the more powerful as Asghedom conveyed he was still dealing with the senseless shooting death and hoped something good could come from the tragedy.
    • “It changed everything I thought I understood,” he said. “Gotta be something past this for bro to go out like that.”
  7. Leaving Nothing Out
    • Before he left the stage, Asghedom said, I love him. And I hope I didn’t leave anything out man.
    • The roaring crowd made it clear he had not.

In Passing

Some people you will only experience through the love of others.

Nipsey Hussle

Background

Days of listening to Rap is way behind me.

No radio and no mixtapes counting on years now.

And, so it is no surprise never heard of Nipsey.

      • Profile
        • In this VladTV exclusive, Vlad spoke to Kerry Lathan – the man who was shot alongside Nipsey Hussle and ultimately arrested for a parole violation. Kerry Lathan noted that he just got out of prison after doing a 26 year-to-life sentence. Lathan also expressed frustration at why he was placed in jail in the first place and noted that he was put back into jail for coming in contact with a gang member (Nipsey Hussle). Lathan also spoke on his condition in jail and broke down his original conviction, saying he only served 24 years. Lathan detailed the moment he came in contact with Nipsey in the parking lot of the Marathon Store, and described how Nipsey, himself, and his nephew were shot.

Lyrics

Nipsey Hussle – Crenshaw and Slauson (True Story)

Link

Rap niggas, they just wanna double date with you
Twitpic and show these hoes that they affiliate with you
Labels used to treatin’ rappers like a slave, nigga
Starvin’ artist, “Just be happy with your fame, nigga”
Shit changed, now it’s such a different game
All the niggas like myself is controlling everything

Was a charismatic nigga, I don’t play as much
Cause life is real when you live it in a place like us

Speaking to they soul, so they tell me I’m they favorite
Been through it myself, yeah, I know how it make you
Never let ’em judge you cuz they ain’t you
I could tell a long story or just say I’m grateful
I could tell a gang of reasons or just say I’m faithful

I’m not a rapper or a poet, I’m a poem, nigga
Always pull up in foreign that’s never loaned, nigga
Always speaking my music straight from my soul, nigga
My business partners Jewish but I’m all nigga

I been that nigga before the fame happened
That tell them hoes go get my name tatted
I love my life, y’all could hate that shit
All the smart money got they bets on me
And all them real niggas wish the best for me
All these bad bitches got some sex for me
Shout out them bad bitches getting dressed for me
They down to stand in line ’cause it’s well worth it
Pull up to my shows in Chanel purses
They jeans fit the worst but they smell perfect
Never argue with they niggas but they yell verses

    • Without having to take a chance and get some money
  2. D.L. Hughley
    • Everybody who is doing something seems to meet an unfortunate end
    • The beautiful thing about people is that when they get it, they take off
    • They are here for such a brief time, yet so impactful
    • Young men and women are losing their lives to situations
      • Documentary
      • Meeting with the Police
    • Deconstruct the value of our lives to one another
      • Start mattering more than the issues
    • Church
      • The only reason that church exists is that black mothers are there praying for these young people
      • Praying it gets better
      • I promise you it does get better
      • You take the best of us
      • The very thing you need, you take it

 

My Quick Take

You want to be disliked.  You want to be hated?

Reach for that empty middle seat.

Misunderstanding of the misunderstood.

It is always a good thing that in your memorial, they don’t talk about your talent, whom you were, but who you are.

How you got them closer to their best self; to their better ego.

He took my heart, when he said don’t worry I got you.

Having someone who is in a better place is noble.

I remember the words of  a man that I met at the laundry room a year or so ago.

Wisdom of a retiree.

Something about some people are Christians, they just don’t know it.

Always confusing the matter, didn’t know we was on the same team.

Here is to taking the time to meet and know the people here to raise and hold you.

They might not be here much longer once they are shown.

Of all the letting go, it is having to pour soil on laid down souls that breaks me.

People like to say that you never miss what you never had; but that is not all the way true.

Some people keep their light sheltered and speak in ways that is hard to understood.

Missing out on good sense; cause of what it is clothed in.

Here is to the cost they pay to steady and strengthen my feet.

Prayer

Let us continue to let the young lives live.

There is always a spot held for each of God’s creation.

It hurts to see it sit empty.

 

Dedicated

I heard Nipsey grandma in an interview talk about hoping some good come out of it; having faith.

And, so I am not out of school here.

To God be the Glory.

As always, taking without permission.

But, Daylyt I couldn’t let sit still.

Verses

  1. Stood by me in my trials
    • And I bestow on you a kingdom, just as My Father has bestowed on Me, so that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and sit on thrones
      ( Luke 22:29 )
  2. Light
    • But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light.
      ( Ephesians 5:13 )

 

In Closing

In closing when you are a friend of God, you give him maximum room to work in people’s lives.

You do not think too deeply into little things.

You introspectively look back at how he is working in your life; all the slow downs and put backs.

And, you think and say let him take his time; especially when he is working with young people.

 

The Bus Lady, That is just the way that I am

 

Wet

Monday evening turned wet on us.

And, as always I was without my umbrella.

Made it on the train and got off at my stop.

Only a bus ride stood between me and home.

But, missed the previous by 10 minutes.

The next one was 50 minutes away.

Holding still is not me and so walked to a waiting bus.

The Bus Conductor was not manning the bus.

So got on and waited for her.

 

Bus Lady

A few later someone asked me where I was going and I gladly replied.

She said it was good and that we will be leaving shortly.

It was only a small smoke break and we left shortly thereafter.

She did not even ask me to pay.

She asked if I had to walk upon getting off her bus, and I said Yes I do.

She said you can have the umbrella sitting on the stand between she and her passengers.

Continued that someone left it, forget it.

 

You can use it

I looked at her and wondered, are you kidding me.

Knowing she was not not going to drive that bus home and eventually she will need an umbrella too.

But, she replied she is good.

And, that giving is just the way she is.

 

SMH

It is my SMH moment.

One of my best friends came to visit about a year and half ago.

I had made an appointment, but I decided I was not going to keep it.

As fate will have it, his GPS system took him to the city square and I ended up making that appointment nonetheless.

He told me, that appointment I had made was not really for my benefit, but for his.

We ended up spending the whole day on that one appointment.

 

His Words

His words has stayed with me.

The umbrella was not for my benefit, but for her benefit.

Through the evening she will likely offer others that same umbrella.

Eventually there will be someone that really needs it.

 

Pray

As I got off the bus, I said I will pray for you.

And, that has an expectant mother, she should wait with conviction on a promise.

 

Bible Verses

NT

  1. In Pisidian Antioch ( Acts 13:15 ) ( Link )
    • After the reading from the Law and the Prophets, the synagogue leaders sent word to them: “Brothers, if you have a word of encouragement for the people, please speak.”
  2. Living Sacrifices ( Romans 12:8 ) ( Link )
    • …if it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach;
    • if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is giving, let him give generously; if it is leading, let him lead with diligence; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.
    • Love must be sincere. Detest what is evil; cling to what is good.…
  3. James 4:5 ( Link )
    • Or do you suppose it is to no purpose that the Scripture says, “He yearns jealously over the spirit that he has made to dwell in us”?
    • But he gives more grace.

 

OT

  1. Zephaniah 1:12
    • Search with lamps, who are stagnant in spirit

 

Taking Shots

I know Antiochian model is so long ago.

We no longer need to preface our call to speak to those that have words of encouragement.

All the prompting one needs these days are :-

  1. Political motive
  2. Bones to pick with someone else ministry
  3. A lifestyle that we disagree with and the bible has given us enough cover
  4. Saw something on TV
  5. Not enough sleep

When we preach on the things mentioned above, we are already receiving our just reward.

Preaching for and to men.

Sometimes

Sometimes I think the reasons why our churches are empty is that we have locked people in.

We have counted who we will like counted and made sure the iffies are not let in.

Somewhere out there the good Lord is out there offering umbrellas to those who need it.

And, searching for lost souls.

While we get on TV and preach against Social Gospel.

SMH wondering which spirit gave us authority to preach against feeding the needy.

As evening approached, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food.”

 

In Closing

Two thousand years later, Jesus’ words continue to confound us

beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod (Mark 8:14–15)

Yusef Salaam, On Saving one Person

Biography

Yusef Salaam is a leader, motivator, and thinker who is a proponent of social justice. He is also one of the teens falsely accused and convicted of raping the “Central Park Jogger.” In 1989, five black and Latino teenagers were arrested and charged with brutally attacking and raping a white female jogger in Central Park. News media swarmed the case, calling them a “wolfpack.” The five would spend years in prison for a crime they didn’t commit before the truth about what really happened became clear. In 2002, on the recommendation of the Manhattan District Attorney, the convictions of the five men were overturned. Yusef Salaam had served five and a half years. The story was made into an award-winning documentary , The Central Park Five, by the acclaimed director Ken Burns. Salaam was keynote speaker at the closing ceremonies of Stony Brook University’s 2016 observance of Black History Month.

Jacinda Ardern On being chosen

Background

During hard times we sometimes wonder what God sees and thinks.

 

Jacinda Ardern

Jacinda Ardern an elected politician knows a bit about been chosen.  I found out about her through 60 Minutes Australia.

Coverage of her and other areas is available here.

Jacinda Ardern.20190319.0309PM

Words

He is

“He is a terrorist, he is a criminal, he is an extremist, but he will, when I speak, be nameless, and to others I implore you: Speak the names of those who were lost rather than the name of the man who took them. He may have sought notoriety but we in New Zealand will give him nothing – not even his name.” 

I am not doing everything

“I don’t want to ever give the impression that I’m some kind of wonder woman,” Ardern said around that time as interest in her intensified, adding: “Or that women should be expected to do everything because I am. I’m not doing everything.”

Scarf

“The prime minister, when she came wearing her scarf, that was big for us,” Dalia Mohamed, who was mourning Hussein Mustafa, her daughter’s father-in-law, killed alongside more than 40 people at Christchurch’s central Al Noor mosque, told media in New Zealand. Ardern met with families at the mosque over the weekend.

Reflection

My take is that God sees people who get it wrong much more often than right.

 

Penitent Thief

Link
The Penitent Thief, also known as the Good Thief or the Thief on the Cross, is one of two unnamed persons mentioned in a version of the Crucifixion of Jesus in the New Testament. The Gospel of Luke describes one asking Jesus to “remember him” when Jesus will have “come into” his kingdom. The other, as the impenitent thief, challenges Jesus to save himself to prove that he is the Messiah.

Marlee Barnhill, Happy Friday

MarleeJonesBarnhill

Condolences

Link

A group of friends gathered in Carroll County on Friday night to celebrate the upcoming 27th birthday of Marlee Jones Barnhill.

She was expecting a fun night of karaoke. Authorities said it ended in carnage.

At the party, Carroll County Sheriff Clint Walker said, her husband became intoxicated, grabbed a gun and allegedly shot Marlee Barnhill. He is accused of shooting again and again as others tried to come to her defense, killing a total of three people.

Michael Martin Barnhill, 30, has been charged with three counts of homicide and two counts of attempted murder.

By all appearances, Marlee Jones Barnhill was excited for the party and oblivious to what would come on Friday night.

The bubbly blonde live streamed a nearly hour-long video on social media before she headed over to her friends’ house for the celebration.

“Happy March 1!!!! New month, New Goals, and my BIRTHDAY MONTH!” she wrote in the video’s description.

Marlee Barnhill ran a Facebook page, “Get Glamorous with Marlee,” where her 1,200 fans could watch her do her makeup, sell beauty products and talk about her life, punctuated with laughs and silly sounds.

That’s what she was doing before the party.

“I’m in such a good mood guys, can you tell?” she asked while brushing on eye shadow.

“…Tonight I’m going to one of my really good friend’s houses. We’re going to karaoke and sit on her back porch and just hang out.”

Here’s what happened at the party, according to a statement Walker released after the suspect appeared in court on Monday.

Michael Barnhill became drunk and belligerent through the course of the evening. Walker described him as “angry and combative” when others discouraged his drunken behavior.

To prevent Michael Barnhill from trying to drive away, his wife kept the keys to their truck, the sheriff said.

“Marlee was trying to do the right thing to protect his life and the lives of other drivers,” Walker said.

Michael Barnhill went out to the vehicle and returned with a .40 caliber pistol, Walker said. He angrily slapped a cigarette from his wife’s hand.

Jim Harrell tried to defend Marlee Barnhill.

Brooks Harrell was shot as she tried to help her husband and her friend, Walker said.

The two other women at the party ran upstairs to protect the child, who was asleep in a bed. They barricaded themselves in a locked closet with the child, he said.
