Hey folks, how’s it been. Just dropping a line or two so everyone can see I’m still here in this peace. Riddle me this, why is it when you are different from others, people think your the lame one? When they are the lames for becoming victims to peer pressure.

Just because I don’t do the things you do, does not make you better than me or vice versa. You can’t alway judge a person because they don’t pertisipate is the same activities as the so-called in crowd.

I’ve always been one to take the road less traveled because why go down the road everyone else has and see the same shit when I can go my way see new things and have new adventures.

I talk, dress, walk, laugh, cry and dance they way I want to, not the way you want me to.

With that said, that L7 that you think I am, I’m really outside that box looking at you playing your boring little part inside the box.

Who Gets Wake Up calls?

Posted in Family n Friends, Hip Hop, Life, Relationships, Religion on January 12, 2010 by bakerboi

OK, skip all the pleasantries and let’s get down to business, baby.  Can you say 50 BABY!!!!!  Inside joke.  Ok, but for real I came across a video I would like yalls to take a look at and tell me what you think.  First, I’m going to say a little something about the video and the meaning I THINK it has.  The video is from Malice of the Clipse and it’s called “Wake Up Calls” and in this video, mini movie where he is going through the motions of everyday life until one day he has to start making all kind of decisions about his life.  Long story short you can take a lot from this piece because it has so many underlying meanings and blunt force trauma meanings as well.

Check it out here:  Wake Up Calls

Now to the questions for today, who gets wake up calls?  I believe we all do, hold up at least the ones who believe.  Everyone gets warnings, some stronger than others depending on  who you are and how your releationship is with the Lord.  In the video Malice quotes Hebrews 12:5 and when ever someone quotes anything from the Bible I search it for myself on my cell (technology, isn’t it great)  and sure enough it’s right there in black and white.

Hebrews 12:5-11 (New King James Version)

5 And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons:
“ My son, do not despise the chastening of the LORD,
Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him;
6 For whom the LORD loves He chastens,
And scourges every son whom He receives.”[a]
7 If[b] you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? 8 But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. 9 Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? 10 For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness. 11 Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.

Can you comprehend what was just said?  Let me know and we will continue this convo later on.  DEEP!!!!!!!

BTW, the Clipse latest album “Til The Caskets Drops” is an instant classic.  Go cop that and enjoy for your listening pleasures.

HAPPY FREAKING NEW YEARS, 2010…. LET IT BEGIN!

Hey, Hey, Hey….. In the words of Fat Albert.  What the hell’s been going on with yall?  Well, I had a very busy holiday season, had a lot going on.  I had a lost in my family.  My 1st second cousin, cousin Bobby was murdered in Dayton, Oh on December 7, 2009.  It hurt a lot because it was so unexpected and sudden, but I guess that how it goes when it’s your time.  He was young too, he was like 33 and he leaves behind  kids who truly miss him already.  It’s a shame, another family without a father figure.  Do you know what’s funny is that 9 times out of 10 his murders also didn’t have a father figure.  Now, that says something about how a cycle works.

You see a cycle is something that keeps going in the same direction, normally a circle without any chance of being changed or stopping.  That’ s why it’s said you have to BREAK the cycle to accomplish the impossible.  We have to break this cycle of dysfunctional families, single parent homes, black on black crime, violence  and murder.  Nevertheless, we all know that’s not going to happen because for my Christian brother and sisters out there it was already written.  It’s going to get worst before it gets better.  I know I have said that many time before, but yall should know me by now, I’m going to keep saying it until I can’t say it no mo’ (a little down south talk for ya).

I know what you are asking, but how can we change, how can we break the cycle.  That’s a simple answer, instead of looking for others to help us, we have to learn to help ourselves.  We have to take accountability for ourselves, we have to learn to be better parents and teachers, anything that does with community has to be the starting place.  See we’ve looked in the wrong direction, we looked for others for change and hope, but all along we should  have looked to each other and the Lord for strength and guidance in breaking this cycle of genocide.  Yeah, I said it because with the way we’ve been programmed to do for self today, all it has brought us is pain and death.  It’s all about the money, honey and how far you can get and what you can get, which has people without the means thinking that it’s OK to get rich or die trying, when in fact all that leads to is incarceration, death and destruction.  Ultimately, breaking down of the family structure.  Can anyone refute that?  Can you tell me I’m lying?  What are your thoughts, come on.  Talk to me.

Here is something for your individual viewing pleasure.  I belive it’s time to put down the Kool Aid in Jim Jones fashion (NOT THE RAPPER) and wake up my people.  The honeymoon is over and we are in for very hard times ahead.  I’ve heard this saying being thrown around that the New World Order has a black face on it now.  Before, I would have fought tooth and nail disputing that and maybe even called someone a racist, but once you have knowledge of self and are constantly seeking truth things become a lot clearer.  Let me get this out there right now, it’s not about race, color, creed or origin.  It’s about class and where you are in the class structure means a whole hell of a lot in these coming years.  It’s about how much money you have, it’s about how much debt you have and it’s about the have and the have not’s.  If you haven’t notice the color of your skin doesn’t mean anything in the GLOBAL scheme of things.  We are in hard economic times here in the USA (and if we didn’t pay the kings ransom to the banks) it would have been a lot worse.  All those things promised to us has yet seen the light of day, why?  I have some ideas, but I want to here yours because mind may be too radical for your pleasure right now. When I talk to people about these type of things some look in amazement, others in disgust.  Pretty much like the way I looked when someone said that President was the Antichrist.  I looked at that fool is he was crazy.  Now, by no means am I saying he is now or has ever been, LOL.  But what I will say is that he is the gatekeeper and he is in the process of ushering in a New World for all to enjoy.  I can sit here and discuss pro’s and con’s with you all day, but just do two things for me.  Look up how many of our president campaign points has he follow-up on that was suppose to be beneficial to everyday American people.  You can’t count the bailout, not for American people, for bankers (oops, did I say that out loud) and you can’t say Health Care Reform because it’s a huge step toward this New World Order thing that  everyone has no idea about.  Just do some research for yourself, cut the tv off, put the iPod down and do your due diligent on research.  I mean I could point you in the right direction, but I think I’ve given you a lot of good starting points.  Here’s one of our president’s major campaign contributors, multi-billionaire George Soros.  Listen very carefully to what he says:

Loyalty vs. Logic

Posted in Culture, Family n Friends, Life, Relationships on September 16, 2009 by bakerboi
Never give people control over you!

Never give people control over you!

Hey my people, hey my people.  Long time and I want to apologize for that, a lot has been going on in my life.  Ok, so let’s jump right into the subject Loyalty vs. Logic.  I posed this question to my Facebook friends over the weekend concerning their favorite football teams and the response was something you should expect, especial from die hard, live hard Raider fans.  However, I want to pose the same question to you, but in a different light.

We can all associate loyalty and logic with anything in our lives and your favorite football team on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the highest, depending on who you’re talking to,  should not come anywhere close to 10.  OK, but in the grand scheme of things loyalty and logic are on the same level of importance with concerns to ones life, right.  For example, let’s say there’s a situation where your best friend is loyal to you, but is always getting not only himself in trouble, but you as well.  So how far does loyalty goes in that situation before it’s more logical for you to intervene and try to help or move out the way.  I guess what the question is this, how much hurt do you take before you say enough is enough and either we going to drown together on this ship or I’m jumping off this ride because I’m not willing to take it with you.

For me, I look at what has happened in the past and judge how things will go in the future.  I look back and see the things that took place and try to be loyal to that, in that instance.  Not adding to or taking anything away from that moment because it becomes not genuine and tainted.  However, as thing begin to build up and I’m keeping trying to get my point across more and more, the more it seems I’m talking to a brick wall and they are happy with their lives and I’m the one stressing over a happy person situation.  So that’s when I say PEACE, if you like it, I love it.  The reason being is because we can’t live our lives for other grown ass people who are doing what they want to do.  WE can only live our lives for our children and us and the Lord.  Period.  It is not logical to let yourself drown in someone elses happiness, meaning if they are happy being a drug addict, let them be the best drug addict they can be.  If they are happy being a hoe, let them be the best hoe they can be and don’t beat yourself up about because it’s their life.  It’s what they want to do, after you have done everything for them as your wife, husband, friend, uncle, aunt, cousin whoever, whatever.  You can try to talk to them to see the big picture all you want, but in the end know that they are there because they want to be and you can’t change a person outlook on things unless they want to change themselves.  I can’t sit back and beat myself up because I can’t make someone love me or love themselves.  Either love it or leave it alone.  And that’s when it’s becomes only logic for you to remove yourself from the situation, whatever it is.  The question is how much do you take before logic kicks you in the ass?  I guess it depends on how much you really truly love that person and it doesn’t mean you stop loving them, you stop loving them more than you love yourself.  Oh well, only time will tell and until we get a call from logic, I guess we all will be playing the fool.

Too Much Going On!

Long time no see or is it no write.  Whatever, these past couple of days has been a trying time with the death of MJ and the apparent murder-suicide of Steve McNair and his jump off.  I am truly at a loss of words concerning the Steve McNair thing.  I really like dude as a player because he played his heart out every Sunday and left it on the field at all time.  Didn’t matter if he was hurt or not, he gave his all.  I wish I could say the same for him being a human being.  I’m not here to judge him because he’s not here to defend himself and I hate when blogs and other websites do that.  However, I will say the real victims here are the 4 sons and wife he left behind.

OK, let’s keep it all the way real.  This is not the first time, nor will it be the last time someone with fame and fortune cheats on their family with a mistress, secrete lover, jump off.  Men have been doing this for centuries and women may have been doing it longer and just never got caught.  Come on men, we keeping it all the way real, right.  Women are so much better at cheating because they know how to hide their intentions and cover their emotions and they are very careful in covering their tracks.  Hell, we as men wouldn’t never find out unless she wanted us to or we simple caught her out of pocket.  They’re good, real good.

Although, the above statements are true, but what happen during the lead up to and after is tragic enough and the end result is what happens when people play with other people emotions.  You can’t go around having people believe one thing and it turns out to be another.  We all are emotional people and that’s doesn’t justify what happen on the 4th of July in the McNair case, but hell people have been killed for a lot less.  If you are going to step out on your family make sure the person your stepping out with understands your situation so there won’t be any confusion later on down the line and the person is able to make a informed choice on weather to mess with your cheating ass or not.  That way, when 5 months down the line it comes out that your not getting a divorce or that your going to work it out with your family, it won’t come as a surprise and that person doesn’t want to blow your damn head off because they always knew it was a possibility you would do just that.  You can’t lead people on thinking you are giving them the world and end up giving them the shaft (pun intended).

We all have made mistakes in our lives, but no matter how big the mistake is, a person should not have to pay with their lives being taken and their loved ones paying a very heavy price down the road.  We never know what other people intention are, but we have to understand that we never truly know peoples motives and have to be careful who we let into our lives and be really careful on how we treat people, all the way around.

Hey my peoples, how are we doing this fine day.  I’m doing good for no other reason than I’m almost finished with a full week.  Meaning, I worked from Monday-Friday 9.5 hours a day for the first week in about 1 week.  Back to the grind, baby.  Anyway, I’m also feeling myself because I finally have a feel good story of sorts.  And here it goes:  I work in the City, for those of you who don’t know what the City is, it’s SF and it’s great.  I love working out here and I’m blessed to be able to have a job and working period.  With that being said, everyone knows we are having terrible times not only here in Cali, but everywhere and it’s not unusual to see homeless people amongst us, dealing or not dealing with their situations.  Well, as I come into work and leave to go home everyday I see a guy with a shoe shine booth on the corner, everyday.  Ok, so I never wear shoes that needs a shining, but I admire him for getting his hustle on and doing what he can do for whoever or whatever he’s doing it for (did that make sense?).  Anyhow, come to find out as I’m reading my daily newspaper on the web…. well I let you read it for yourself.  Check out these two links:

SF Scuffs Dream of Homeless Shoeshiner

and then this:

Shoeshine Man Catches a Break

Now if that deosn’t make you feel good about people as a whole and what we can do to help each other I don’t know what to tell your harden heart, but I will make sure I pray for you.  LOL.  No for real, I will be sure to get some of his services one day maybe have him shine up a pair of my Airforce One’s or something.  The coolest thing about it all is that he doesn’t want hand outs, he wants to work for what he gets.  He was just so overwhelmed by people just giving him money that hell, why wouldn’t he accept it.  Let’s get it together people, things are bad and we have a tough time ahead of us, but if we stick together and try to work together through our differences, I think we will be better for it.  All we have to do is try….. Peace.
