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.

      • Kerry Lathan on Getting Shot Next to Nipsey Hussle, Police Violating Parole & Facing Life
      • 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. Lathan pointed out that Nipsey looked out for him when he came home, despite them only meeting a few times prior. Listen to the full interview above.

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

 

In depth

  1. Nipsey Hussle – Crenshaw and Slauson (True Story)
    • 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.

 

Spirit of Heaviness….

 

Scriptures

  1. Isaiah
    • Isaiah 61:3
      • To provide for them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.
        Link
  2. Psalm
    • Psalm 92:10
      • But You have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox; I have been anointed with fresh oil.
        • King David
  3. Ezekiel
    • Ezekiel 29:21
      • In that day will I cause the horn of the house of Israel to bud forth, and I will give thee the opening of the mouth in the midst of them; and they shall know that I am the LORD.
  4. Joel
    • Joel 2:32
      • And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.
  5. 1 Timothy
    • 1 Timothy 4:1-2
      • The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.
        Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron.
  6. 2 Samuel
    • 2 Samuel 3:39
      • And I am this day weak, though anointed king; and these men the sons of Zeruiah be too hard for me: the LORD shall reward the doer of evil according to his wickedness.
  7. John
    • John 6:63
      • It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
  8. Hebrews
    • Hebrews 4:12-13 King James Version (KJV)
      • For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

Church in Society ( 2017-Oct )

Background

Again, this is an area, I will rather not go.

Yet, it is one that stirs our conscience and thoughts.

And, that is reason enough to see what people are saying and why they are saying it.

Predication

Introduction

We all have our own bias and depositions.

And, it is best to lay them bare ahead of time.

Most of my comments will be based on what I have heard from others prior to anything that I will cover in this post.

It is often useful to have some foundational predisposition as that lessens the opportunity to be swayed within each decision point.

Even better when commentators are not even speaking specifically on the new material.

Earlier Words

  1. Damon Thompson
    • Sometimes God places something in our heart, but unfortunately so much  of what has gone out in the Prophetic World was not undergirded in scripture
    • And, so I, Damon Thompson, need the foundation of Scripture
  2. Neil Ellis
    • This is a Church of matured faith
    • You have been preaching, but you were fearful of how the preaching will be accepted
    • Sometimes the Devil magnifies things and makes them appear more than they really are
    • Sometimes as a pastor what makes us press even though there is “Hell on the Outside” is that we are satisfied that we have the confidence of the people inside
    • Can the Lord trust you, and can the Bishop/Leadership depend on you?
    • Free your Spirit, but challenge your people
    • A faith that has not been tested, is a faith that can not be trusted
  3. Sonia Sotomayor, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States
    • Sotomayor was asked to explain her remarks from a 2001 speech in which she said she agreed that “there is no objective stance but only a series of perspectives — no neutrality, no escape from choice in judging.”  She told the committee that, in every case, the two opposing parties view the facts from vastly different perspectives. “You can’t just throw up your hands and say I’m not going to rule,” she said. There is a choice in judging, which means “you have to rule.”

Leadership

Seated Under

Those in leadership do not always get to take a day off.

Not only does what they think matter, but also how they got there.

I have grown from listening in person or via youtube to the people listed above.

And, that makes me forever grateful.

Influencing Capital

The further we grow, the more influencing capital we personally have and have access to.

After long and hard battles our role will be examined; especially if our role is seen to have moved the needle towards an unexpected end.

Unfortunately it is not just our choice that is examined, but the totality of our live.

Circumference of Relationships

Relationships often covers so much space.

And, some of those spaces overlap and are not necessarily disjointed.

And, so even within a body, for instance Faith community, uniformity does not necessarily translate to conformity.

People sometimes reach different conclusions and they should be free to do so.

This is more so where there are personal relationships with those that are being discussed.

 

In Essentials Unity, In Nonessentials Liberty, In All Things Charity

Link
Philip Schaff, the distinguished nineteenth-century church historian, calls the saying in our title “the watchword of Christian peacemakers” (History of the Christian Church, vol. 7, p. 650). Often attributed to great theologians such as Augustine, it comes from an otherwise undistinguished German Lutheran theologian of the early seventeenth century, Rupertus Meldenius. The phrase occurs in a tract on Christian unity written (circa 1627) during the Thirty Years War (1618–1648), a bloody time in European history in which religious tensions played a significant role.

 

Sola Scriptura

  1. Laws of Social Responsibility
    If ever you take your neighbor’s cloak in pledge, you shall return it to him before the sun goes down, for that is his only covering, and it is his cloak for his body; in what else shall he sleep? And if he cries to me, I will hear, for I am compassionate.
    You shall not curse God, nor curse a ruler of your people. ( Exodus 22:27-28 )
  2. Paul Before the Sanhedrin
    • But those standing nearby said, “How dare you insult the high priest of God!”
      “Brothers, Paul replied, “I was not aware that he was the high priest, for it is written: ‘Do not speak evil about the ruler of your people.’”
      ( Acts 23:4-5 )
  3. David, Saul, Jonathan, & Mephibosheth
    • And Mephibosheth the son of Saul came down to meet the king. He had neither taken care of his feet nor trimmed his beard nor washed his clothes, from the day the king departed until the day he came back in safety. ( 2nd Samuel 19:24 )
    • He answered, “My lord, O king, my servant deceived me, for your servant said to him, ‘I will saddle a donkey for myself, that I may ride on it and go with the king.’ For your servant is lame. ( 2nd Samuel 19:26 )
    • He has slandered your servant to my lord the king. But my lord the king is like the angel of God; do therefore what seems good to you. ( 2nd Samuel 19:27 )
    • For all my father’s house were but men doomed to death before my lord the king, but you set your servant among those who eat at your table. What further right have I, then, to cry to the king?” ( 2nd Samuel 19:28 )
    • And the king said to him, “Why speak any more of your affairs? I have decided: you and Ziba shall divide the land.” ( 2nd Samuel 19:29 )
    • Mephibosheth said to the king, “Let him even take it all, since my lord the king has come safely to his own house.” ( 2nd Samuel 19:30 )

Summary

In summary I find myself always returning to a couple of words :-

  1. Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad
    • Allah’s hand of protection is with the maintenance of unity, you should beware of division.
    • The one isolated from the group is a prey to Satan, just as the one isolated from the flock is a prey to the wolves
    • You can not base a spiritual life on suspiciousness, cursing and allocating blame.
  2. Abraham Lincoln
    • I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day.”

Closing

Love never fails … for we know in part and we prophesy in part.
