The new case for Reparations |The Self Sufficiency Route

Case for reparations

Black America has built a case for Reparations.

The black community has long called for reparations on the land that it built wealth for many centuries ago.  The America you see now is the  America that was barren 400 years ago. It is now an economical powerhouse. The case for reparations has been catching momentum as of late and is reportedly headed by actor Danny Glover.  America has heard this case several different times and the hearings have always ended the same. TALKING.

The original coalition led by others such as Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and others associated with post King civil rights.  The last major civil rights issue to be handled was the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  This piece of legislation undid segregation and employment discrimination based on color, race, sex, religion, or nationality. Consequences came with the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  The economy enjoyed a lift, but black wealth was the collateral damage.

What does collateral damage look like?

A transference of assets and ownership that has lead to the average black household to have zero wealth.  I’m not speaking case for reparationspennies or a few hundred dollars either.  Thousands of dollars have trickled out of the black community and right into the hands of other races.  The gap is widening while more black families fall below poverty  and have little ownership in stock or savings.  Many Black Americans wonder how this concept is possible when more black millionaires and billionaires pop up.  The overall wealth belongs to around 5% of Americans while most Americans account for the rest of the economy.

Imagine being in that 95% that holds 5% of the money and accounting for around .05 percent of that figure.  The average black family can expect to have a negative wealth portfolio by the year 2050 if current trends continue.  As the graph provided by MSNBC illustrates, at one point the Black American average median income grew only to crash down while the average white family kept gaining traction and growing.

Why co-operative or collaborative economics make sense.

Activist Malcolm X was a very outspoken advocate for collaborative economics within the black community.  The concept takes money within the black community and circulates it within the community an average of 8 to 15 times. The community can now grow wealth from within.  The black consumer dollar currently circulates about 1.5 times before leaving the community and given to another ethnic group.

Black Americans will see a significant increase in dollar circulation with collaborative economics because it encourages ownership in companies that are black owned.  Spending with those companies and bringing new businesses to neighborhoods where black Americans live.  The average black family would see their investment grow and the power of interest.

The case for reparations built. Insert Fubu2Infinity!

The financial woes of Black America should not be taken lightly and swift action must occur in order to stop the future generations of Black Americans from living on the streets and struggling for basic needs.   In order to bring economic equity one must have a vessel to ride in the wave of  economic prosperity.  The fast growing company has come with a solution that case for reparationsallows black America and those of African descent to invest and own what will be considered the largest economical civil rights movement to date.

Information about the movement can be found on Fubu2infinity.com and the video link above.  The Ceo has asked that everyone attend a short webinar in order to get the message and details on how the company works.  Created to fix a need in our communities and bring forth self- sufficiency for all.  We are and have always been great thinkers and creators and now the time is better than ever to bring back black wealth.

Black Wall Street Reincarnated|New Black Enterprise

Why was Black Wall Street so important?

The financial plight of the African American community has been well documented and dissected.  The real question that has  surfaced since Dr.King’s assassination is what will the community do about it?  We know that marching in the streets and Black Wall Street Reincarnatedsinging glorious hymns have not made much traction in the progress for economic stability.  The wealth gap for African Americans has actually increased in that time frame only causing further damage to our communities.  The Black Wall Street of the early 1900’s has long been burned down, but still no such pillars are present in predominantly black areas.  A much needed revitalization of black america has been needed.  The concept is built around the concentrated effort of recirculating black dollars within the community.  The black dollar is crucial for cultivating community programs and facilitating the growth of black enterprise.

How do we reincarnate Black Wall Street?

The answer is simple as it was given to us by none other than one of our own Malcolm X .  He gave a speech called The Ballot or the Bullet where he explained the power of black spending. Our neighborhoods thrive when we buy black and fail when we do not.  The power of pooling the black dollar not only perpetuates generational wealth but gives us control over our own Black Wall Street Reincarnatedinfrastructures and institutions.  If everyone just invested and patronized more black owned businesses the effects would trickle down through generations, creating the equivalent of a reparations check owed to Black America.  The keyword “investment” means you now have ownership and dividends to be paid out.   The time has come where black enterprise rises across the nation and buying black is no longer taboo.

The revolution has begun!

The name Fubu2Infinity will soon become a staple of the black community for years to come.  This is an opportunity for the growth of  black enterprise that can benefit everyone in Black America.  The instructions are clear and simple. Black Wall Street Reincarnated Go to www.fubu2infinity.com and register to get more information.  The ball is in Black Americas court and the call to action has been sounded.  We will heal when we learn to love and support one another.  In order for a new Black Wall Street to thrive we must become the change we seek.

I Dream Of $ Jigi $ by DJ Layne Luv

…And just like the Jeannie from the tv show her “image” caters to the fantasy of the male wishes (and some females too lol) but seriously that is not any of her concern. The true business woman from Dayton Ohio is focused on the check daily and very little else in the way of drama or negativity. Her name is Jigi Deniro as in Spanish currency. Her movement you ask? Pretty Pesos. The rest is self explanatory.

These days everybody says they’re about the check, but what caught my attention was Jigi’s consistency. It’s one thing to constantly flood a social media timeline, but to do it in a versatile way that shows your skills, grind, hustle, and doesn’t bore the audience…now that’s saying something. For example, early risers can catch her on Wright State University’s Hip Hop WakeUp Radio on 106.9fm bringing sunshine to her loyal listeners and informing them on all the latest happenings with Ohio Hip Hop artists. You might also see her at a fund raising event empowering the youth to stay in school. And for the people involved in the night life, Jigi heavily promotes Plush Adult Night Life ENT. 

Being that she was from Ohio, I wanted to do more than interview her, I wanted to be a part of the Jigi Deniro brand. So, I called her up one day and asked her if I could have the number to her manager and the information on who does all of her marketing and branding. She replied “You’re speaking to her. That would be me, me & me” LOL! I also asked her if she wouldn’t mind being a part of a worldwide organization that promotes a represents artist in every state (Fleet DJs). She said “Are you kidding me or what?…yeah I’m down.” After speaking with Aaron and presenting her artist press package, it was a go. Jigi became an official Fleet Artist. 

But please don’t judge her by what you see on the surface. Jigi is from good stock and receives love and support from her parents and the rest of her family. I asked her if her folks were ever uncomfortable about her promoting adult entertainment (dem skrippers) and she stated “Of course, any parent wants to protect their child from the pitfalls of this world, but they know that Jigi is grown at the end of the day, that means Jigi got her own bills to pay.” …she adds “But I receive so much love and support from my family, my mother especially”

What most may not know, is that even though Jigi is from Ohio she developed her HU$TLE down south at good ol Tennessee State University. She says “Attending school down there really opened me up to diversity and life outside of my Ohio bubble. When you’ve got all that talent in one area from New York, Chicago Atlanta, and California, different personalities are going to influence creativity and you give some and you take some, but it’s all there to develop what you’re trying to become.” I want to give a shout out to my HBCU family because I still carry those connections to this day….

She’s very witty. I asked how she feels when she thinks people might think she’s doing too much…and already speaking in third person she responds…“Jigi got a whole lotta Plan A’s “ I bust out laughing. “No for real…All my Plan A’s bring in some sort of revenue or income stream for me” 

She has a single out now entitled Y.E.S. being pushed by The Fleet DJ’s however, please go to her youtube channel and check out her other two hot songs “Lost Count” and “Lingo” ft D. Seanny 

Be sure to follow her on all of the social media sites because her star is rising and she shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

*Press Play: I Look Up/ Capital P album review by DJ Layne Luv

“….so where’s he from?” …”Delaware”…”The State?” ….”haha nah bro the city, right there from your state Ohio” This is how Capital P was presented to me via a constant DM on IG through his business partners. I must admit that for a few months, I didn’t follow up as well as I could have. Being a music critic and state manager for all of Ohio with The Fleet DJ’s, I tend to get a lot of submissions regularly. However, after I had a phone conversation with Byrd and Jamezz Bonn (Divine Engineering), I instantly felt a connection. They insisted that Capital P was the one that was going to make noise from Ohio. So I invited him up to the studio to kick it wit us just to see how he vibed with my crew. So one Wednesday, he came up to the WTMH Studio and right there on the spot, we said we were going to premier his single on our live Workout Wednesday broadcast just to see how our audience felt about his work. The single they submitted was El Hombre. I will testify, from the very first note we heard from that song, we were believers in this man’s music.

Being in this business for a while, a DJ hears a lot of music, so it really takes something special to keep an artist’s body of work from going in the pile and moving on. If you listen to Capital P’s / El Hombre first, you will be fooled into thinking he’s just another trap rapper no matter how great the song is. But when you play his entire album of Capital P/I Look Up  you’ll bear witness to artistry coming from the Delaware city. It will actually blindside you of how good Capital P really is. One of my favorite songs of the project Tuck It In takes you into the mind of a person that has seen a lot of ups and downs and of someone just trying to make sense of the world. The live guitar on this songs helps the listener drift from a stressful day into a bliss of funkdefied melody. It may actually be one of my most favorable tracks on the project.

Throughout the album you can hear the pain in the rapper’s voice. It’s a beautiful pain like that of a Bob Marley meets the rap-from-the gut-flow like Tupac Shakur. Not to even try to compare the Delaware rapper to these Legendary figures, it’s just that you can hear the same determination to change the minds in his songs. The song Good is a perfect example of that determination. As he says in the song…“I’m a get it till I’m good” the listener can truly understand Capital P will not stop until he sees some success for his labor. Once again I have to go back to the erie guitar riffs that wail, to paint the picture of a rapper with a big gift trying to push this sound out of his small city.

State of Mind you can hear Cap P making a statement. He is getting the listener to understand that the happening that go on in big cities happen right there in the city of Delaware. He wants the audience to not underestimate the crime and violence that happen where he is proud to be from. As the heroin epidemic continues to stay on the rise in Ohio, he is sounding the horn the same way Grandmaster Flash did with “The Message” when he said, “It’s like a jungle sometimes it makes me wonder how I keep from going under” State Of Mind takes you on a day in Delaware where anything can and will happen.

Tell You What… I’m predicting will be a “ladies” summer song for 2018 in the Midwest. It’s a melodic song where the rapper tries on his vocal skills for size and delivers nicely. It’s always been a formula for rappers to come out with the radio song right before the summer. This is that song. When Cap P actually played that song for me on my radio show, I asked him “So when do you come in on the song?” they all laugh and he says “That is me through the whole song” I’m like “That you singing?”….and he grins . That was another time when I became a believer in his music.

Overall, I give this album a high rating because of the production and arrangement of all the songs. It’s a solid project! You can tell time was taken on the mixing and mastering of all the songs. When I listened to this entire album, it’s like reading a book. The content has to be just as exciting as the title. I Look Up is just that exciting to listen to.

****

Out of 5 stars I would give it 4 based on production and lyrical content….5’s are given for classic albums and only the rest of the world can give him that. Let’s see if I Look Up is a game changer for OHIO.

SNS of Icy Gang…The Son Of A Superhero by DJ Layne Luv

The 41st Law of Power by Robert Greene warns the reader to avoid stepping into a great man’s shoes and that includes your father. King Solomon with all of his riches and concubines, could not outdo the legacy of his father King David. Sure the son may gain notable popularity and success, but that usually only works if the son takes a slight turn to form their own identity. When you are the son of a world renown DJ, it’s fortunate when you learn that lesson early. SNS of Icy Gang is the son of DJ SNS, a Harlem DJ that made his mark in the mixtape game in the mid to late 90’s. DJ SNS made his name by leaking exclusive singles from major artists on his mixtapes well before their release date. This was long before DJ Clue added this to his formula of success. The reason this method was so successful was because of timing. This method was before the internet or streaming, so the only way someone of the culture would be up on the latest groove was through a mixtape. This method caught the son of a hustler’s attention by the name of Sean “Puffy” Combs and Combs found a way to make SNS’s music leaks profitable. SNS would soon be the go-to-man to leak exclusive Bad Boy records on his mixtapes to get the feedback from a street level if the single was a hit or not. This partnership made SNS very famous and rich.

As DJ SNS’s name got out there, he began to tour and travel the globe making a name for himself as the DJ that would shut down any party, block or any club, giving superstar DJ’s such as Ron G & Kid Capri a run for their money. Meanwhile SNS had a son being raised in Harlem. As his son grew up in the Harlem neighborhoods, he began to hear stories about how famous his father was. Sad and proud at the same time, the only time he got to see his father was on mixtapes, magazines, music television shows, or briefs visits when he was home from the road. As SNS’s son grew, he would play basketball on the famous Harlem basketball courts such as Rucker Park. As soon as he would make his way to the asphalt, the OG’s would say “Yo! here come Lil SNS.” And from there the name Lil SNS stuck. “I couldn’t change my name if I wanted to.” laughs Lil S. As I talked to Lil S, I truly had to respect his perceptive of his father growing up being a superstar absentee dad to wanting to carve his own lane in the music business. Even so much to that fact he recently dropped “Lil” from his name to just SNS. Check it out as we chop it up about growing up in Harlem to his group Icy Gang and their music.

SO: Whaddup S! Glad you could spare some of your time to chop it up with Straight Official. If you could, kinda walk us through how you took it all in to be around the likes of Puff, Capri, and a lot of the superstars of rap all because your father was “That Dude”!

SNS: So when I was young, I barely seen my Pops, because you gotta think, this was the late 90’s so he was in rare form. At this time I’m talkin about, he had the big-body Range Rover…iced out chains. When he would roll through the hood everybody knew it was him. So I would either see him coming, like just getting in, or I would see him going like leaving and it would be like the ice cream truck, I would run behind the car chasing it. But I didn’t truly realize his popularity or power until I became much older and started to do this music thing for myself.

SO: Tell us about not only the pressure of being DJ SNS’s son, but talk about the pressure of being a rapper coming out of Harlem.

SNS: Yeah like you said, It’s pressure just being from Harlem and coming out doing music let alone being the son of DJ SNS. You gotta look at it like this, of course I got what I got because of the genes, but growing up in Harlem we love music, we extremely love fashion and the people of Harlem World just love to have fun. Harlem was and still is a Mecca for talent, from the Harlem Renaissance to Jazz to Hip Hop. We not even gonna talk about The Apollo. The Apollo is still proving ground of if you have what it takes to make it big time. If you even want to talk poetry and Langston Hughes we’ve got that legacy too. Harlem will forever be essential to art. So the pressure to be from here is… if you gonna come outside you always gotta be on ya A game. You have to always be ready because you represent a pride..a legacy.

SO: Sounds like you struggled in the beginning with having a famous absentee father.

SNS: ….yeah only because I didn’t understand the grind it takes to stay on top in this business. Not until I got older did I start to understand the business of the industry and you have to be built for it. But when I was young I didn’t understand why I could only see my dad in a magazine or on tv or on a cd cover. I mean I would hear the folklore of the things my father was involved in, like people still come up to me and tell me they will forever love my father because they used to carry his crates just to get in the club and he would get them in and put some money in their pocket. My pops showed love to a lot of people here in Harlem. But then when I got older and got busy, I was able to bless people with my success more than I could my time, so it started to make sense about him not being available all the time.

SO: So I’m sure the natural expectation is that people thought you were going to be a DJ…why did you choose to rap instead?

SNS: My father’s already iconic in the DJ world so he already did that on the DJ side of things. I knew early on DJing is not what I wanted to do, but I was a fan of music and I knew I wanted to be involved in music so it only made sense to carry the torch from an MC perspective. Imma be honest, the first time I saw my father DJ and I saw how lit he had it, it made me never want to DJ haha because I knew that wasn’t my lane.

SO: Is your father hard on your music because you’re his son?

SNS: Man listen, my father is hard on music period. He is a super honest person about what he likes. If he don’t like something he’s gonna stand on it, so he’s only gonna play what he likes. So yeah, it took him a while to play my music because he wanted to make sure it was right. As my father you would think he would be the first one to play my music. But nah…he had to know it was good first. But this music journey has brought us closer so I’m grateful for that.

SO: So being that Harlem is known for entertainers and notorious hustlers what kept you on the straight and narrow?

SNS: Who said I stayed on the straight and narrow? Haha I was involved in a few things to come outside and get what I needed to get. And seriously nobody could really judge me. Because I’m telling you, on a nice day, I don’t care what the season, on a nice day, winter, spring, summer , fall, everybody is outside and everybody’s looking, so when the lights catch you, you gotta be right. These days the music keeps me right but before that, anybody will tell you, you gotta get it how you live. As a man I wanted to do for myself, so you see the people around the way having nice things, you wanna have nice things too, so you take the steps to get them. My Pops asked me why I was doing it but as a man I told him I have to make my own mistakes. I’m just glad I didn’t get caught up. I’m blessed…cuz I got stories haha.

SO: So are you nervous about having mass appeal in this industry?

SNS: Out the gate I know my music is not going to be for everybody. All I’m asking is for people to give it a chance. Because you may not like one record, doesn’t mean you won’t like the next 3, 4 or 5 songs I put out. All it takes is one hit to catch fire. I already got the green light  from Flex, I already got the green light from my borough. Seriously, I’m from Harlem man, we are born with a confidence to win. So that’s my outlook on things….I’m going to win.

SO: You seem to have a mature approach to your music goals, what do you accredit that to?

SNS: I watched for years, Jay, 50 Cam, Kiss, and Fab and watched the moves they made, right or wrong and I studied them along with the wisdom I received from Big S and the rest I just use my instinct and what feels right. So from there, that’s how I try to move.

SO: So what’s the end game and who is Icy Gang?

SNS: When you mention those legends Big L, Dipset, Ma$e, Diddy, Dame, DJ SNS, I want to be right up there wit em. As for Icy Gang….we just the next level. Rock wit us!

[Entertainment news]Rakim Sets The World on Fire With Tweets About Today’s Rap Music

HomeHip Hop News | Trending Hip Hop Stories

Rakim Sets The World on Fire With Tweets About Today’s Rap Music
Roman White February 14, 2018
Rakim is not rocking with today’s hip-hop scene. The Goat emcee and one half of the legendary DJ/Rapper duo Eric B & Rakim, took to Twitter on Tuesday to – with as much detail as possible and taking full advantage of the extended character count– make his opinion on the rap scene today known.
“You are now witnessing the devolution of rap music,” Rakim said. “The death of poetry and smoothness, they use this. The absence of a message. The inability to create meaningful change through words and verses, but the worse is, they don’t even know they hurt this artful purpose, it’s tragic.”
Rakim’s sentiments have been echoed from a few of the music industries OG’s who feel that what made Hip-Hop powerful is being lost. Legendary Producer Quincy Jones in a recent interview with vulture said that with the exception of Chance the Rapper and Kendrick Lamar the hip-hop music coming out was valueless. Jones referred to artists of today and producers as being “greedy” and unknowledgeable of the history.
Rakim and Quincy Jones may have a point as artists today have been if nothing else, ignorant of the history of the rap game. Platinum selling rapper XXXtentacion in a Twitch interview with DJ Akademiks claimed he was better than Tupac Shakur because Tupac didn’t make rock music. Lil Yachty in a 2016 interview with Billboard, couldn’t name five songs from neither Notorious B.I.G. or Tupac and even went as far as calling Biggie overrated, a statement which he later apologized for.
There does seem to be a vast disconnect with the OG’s and the new rappers with the almost blatant disrespect on both sides. The question now is if we’ll see the God emcee, Rakim, get back in his bag and drop some new music to ruffle some feathers.

You are now witnessing the devolution of rap music. The death of poetry and smoothness, they use this. The absence of a message. The inability to create meaningful change through words and verses, but the worse is, they don’t even know they hurt this artful purpose, it’s tragic.
— Eric B and Rakim™ (@EricBandRakim) February 12, 2018

You need to look real close at this previous tweet that’s reached almost 1 million people already and see what you read.
It says “rap” not “hip hop”.
If you don’t know the difference, you can’t make a difference. #KNOWtheLEDGE
