Poverty is a mindset that stunts maturity and growth; poverty is a mentality that makes manhood unlikely. This poverty is a stronghold implanted by the prince of this world into the communities that threaten his ruler ship. Welfare is a system that takes the place of the man and therefore becomes the authority that assigns identity.” ~ excerpt from “The Revolution that Killed Hip Hop”

Men are meant to proclaim identity and purpose in their homes.

vocalizing the whole truth


 I am vocalizing a truth that is vital to us as a people disconnected to our power, but long to reclaim our “identity”. Who we are has been distorted we have been told half truths and I believe the powers fear us realizing the knowledge of who we truly are. I am passionately presenting the truth of who WE are without the “distortion” that we currently languish in. ~ Eric Haylock

The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.- 1 Corinthians 15:56


Death has no sting to those who have died to themselves…the law has no curse to those who have it written on their hearts…when you have given up your life the enemy cant threaten you with the FEAR of taken it, because its not YOUR life anymore. Continue reading

Langston Hughes


In the 1920’s a young writer ventured into what was known as the “Negro capital of the world” which was none other than Harlem, New York. In a calculated and determined pursuit of social inclusion this poet named Langston Hughes teamed up with Cottun Colley, W.E.B Dubois and others to start the “New Negro Renaissance.” What started as the pursuit of creating high art redefining how the Negro was portrayed and perceived exploded into the dynamic social conscientiousness of intellectualism, theater, literature, dance, Jazz, and all artistic and social expressions. This “Harlem Renaissance” revolutionized American art and reshaped the perception in which Black people were perceived and distinguished them in society as contributors.  ~ excerpt from upcoming ebook “The Revolution that killed Hip Hop”

Wisdom in part is predicting the future. Wisdom can make the differentiation between seasons. Wisdom knows when to plant seeds and when to harvest what was planted. Wisdom can see danger from a distance and guide you into a preferred outcome.

Behind the prison gate where those punks be

Aint no brakes for the hungry

“I am not sure if it was the alternative taste in music I learned from my pops or the “The Last Poets” albums my Godmother Karen played in her home, but I would begin to imagine myself as an agent of change. I would play with pens the way most boys my age played the Nintendo – these pens where like portals into other worlds that I created with vivid imagination and creativity to replace the reality of my life. My life wasn’t a terrible life it was just that I was restless with the status quo and the culture that surrounded me. It seems it was my soul that would scream change, and in my dreams I didn’t visualize myself on the sidelines of this revolution … in this revolution that I envisioned in my head I was at the forefront.”

“I fell in love with words…the words articulated from preachers, and the words from rappers…the words of actors, I just loved words”
