WWW.FLAMPRO.COM aka THE GUDWORD. Whats the meaning

I found out a friend of mine passed away this weekend under sad circumstances. I wish that there was an explanation to satisfy the questions as to why and how, however none of it will return this person to the living and breathing life that we live. I am lucky to be able to just live and be content and the days that i wonder why i reflect on days like today when i wonder why not live life. Stay up people, life may be boring and monotonous sometimes but those times when you do have fun cherish and enjoy them with the people that you love.

I read the book BMF The rise and fall of Big Meech, it was a pretty good essay/story about the rise and fall of the Black Mafia Family...and street crew/label that tried to do it the good ole American way. I initially read the book to figure out who these dudes were because i remember having a conversation with a friend, and he seemed shocked that Meech got locked up. Once i read the book it was like oh now i see why you were concerned (street shit should stay in the street) that's all i can say. I definitely would recommend this book if you have some spare change and little time. TIMEISMONEY

WWW.FLAMPRO.COM aka THE GUDWORD. Keep your eyes open

Finally Friday is here. I hope you enjoy your weekend, for all of those hard working 9 to 5ers, 8 more hours and we can relax and sleep.
I found this really interesting audio interview with Malcolm Shabazz the Grandson of Malcolm X.

Malcolm Shabazz the grandson of X

And just in case you dont know about X

Malcolm X (pronounced /ˈmælkəm ˈɛks/; May 19, 1925 – February 21, 1965), born Malcolm Little and also known as El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz[1] (Arabic: الحاجّ مالك الشباز‎), was an African-American Muslim minister, public speaker, and human rights activist.[2][3][4][5] To his admirers, he was a courageous advocate for the rights of African Americans, a man who indicted white America in the harshest terms for its crimes against black Americans.[6] His detractors accused him of preaching racism, black supremacy, antisemitism, and violence.[7][8][9][10][11] He has been described as one of the greatest, and most influential, African Americans in history.[12][13][14]

Malcolm X was born in Omaha, Nebraska. The events of his childhood, including his father's lessons concerning black pride and self-reliance, and his own experiences concerning race, played a significant role in Malcolm X's adult life. By the time he was thirteen, his father had died and his mother had been committed to a mental hospital. After living in a series of foster homes, Malcolm X became involved in hustling and other criminal activities in Boston and New York. In 1946, Malcolm X was sentenced to eight to ten years in prison.

While in prison, Malcolm X became a member of the Nation of Islam. After his parole in 1952, he became one of the Nation's leaders and chief spokesmen. For nearly a dozen years, he was the public face of the Nation of Islam. Tension between Malcolm X and Elijah Muhammad, head of the Nation of Islam, led to Malcolm X's departure from the organization in March 1964.

After leaving the Nation of Islam, Malcolm X became a Sunni Muslim and made a pilgrimage to Mecca, after which he disavowed racism. He traveled extensively throughout Africa and the Middle East. He founded Muslim Mosque, Inc., a religious organization, and the secular, Pan-Africanist, Organization of Afro-American Unity. Less than a year after he left the Nation of Islam, Malcolm X was assassinated while giving a speech in New York.

What up folks. This has been a good week for music in NY. I have to say that Brooklyn Bodega is keeping HiPHoP alive this summer. They hosted a week full of events dedicated to the HipHop culture. I was able to attend one event and if this event was any indication of how the others were then i suggest you do not miss this festival next year. I hope you enjoy the few things i could pull and post from the festival. But the stand out thing for me just being a hip hop fan is meeting Marly Marl, that was Fresh....Thanks Mr.Swift!

SALUTE THE DJ by Rob Swift

July 8th, 2010 will officially go down in history as one of the most EPIC nights in NYC HIP HOP. I mean, isn't it obvious? It's 10:00 am and I'm still wired from the energy I felt on stage at Brooklyn Bodega's "Salute The DJ" event.

Wajeed, DJ Spinna and Bobbito Garcia aka Cumberslice kicked off the event on the perfect note. Their love for music of all kinds was evident in their selection. They played a variety of genres and kept the dance floor rocking from the time I walked in, to the time I hit the stage at 11:45 pm! People, I saw vinyl being played at a HIP HOP show! This is a huge deal for me cause in my travels across the globe this year it started to feel as if the DJs I encountered here and abroad have lost touch with feel of wax under their fingertips. In short, Wajeed, DJ Spinna and Bob showcased the art of true DJing and did HIP HOP justice!

At about 11:20 pm Rhettmatic took to the turntables and proceeded to take us back to a time where Hip Hop was about clever lyrics and hard hitting BOOM BAP beats. Rhettmatic completely raised the energy level. The minute he executed his first scratch you could feel the vibe in the room was ramped up yet another notch. Rhettmatic held it down strong till I joined him on stage 20 minutes later for tag team of cuttin' and scratchin'. Rhett's classic BEAT JUNKIE style of rocking the decks meshed perfectly with my X-ECUTIONERS style of attacking the wheels! Considering we only practiced for about 2 hours the day before, the chemistry between Rhett and I only emphasized when the smoke clears, true skill and experience triumphs over the "make shift" DJs we've seen popping up in the scene lately. None of them fools want it with us!

At approximately 11:45 pm, Rhett passed the scratch baton over to me and I took off running like there was no tomorrow:

Words cannot describe how it felt to perform my routine "Nobody Beats The Biz" in front of the actual producer of the actual song, Marley Marl! After my performance, I was humbled when Marley walked on stage and said "Rob, I was waiting for you to pull that one out". Words cannot describe how it felt to give a copy of THE ARCHITECT to Large Professor, the man who taught me how to produce a song from scratch (Haha, excuse the pun). Words cannot describe how nostalgic it felt to see Bobbito Garcia backstage, it was Bob and Stretch Armstrong who introduced the X-men and I to New York radio on their classic "Stretch and Bobbito Show" from back in the day. Words cannot describe how it felt being photographed by Joe "the man who took Hip Hop's baby pictures" Conzo. I was in front of mentors, teachers and legends like Grand Wizard Theodore (the man who invented scratching) and Pop Master Fabel (member of Rock Steady Crew)!

But just as important, being in front of all of those beautiful yellow, brown, white and black people in the audience really hit home for me. All of those that came out last night serve as a reminder that HIP HOP LIVES. You just gotta know where to look!

WWW.FLAMPRO.COM aka THE GUDWORD. Pardon Jack Johnson

I went to a screening of PBS's "Unforgivable Blackness" at the tribeca grand tonight with my boy Tahero, they were showing in honor of the 100th anniversary of the late great Jack Johnson pugilist elites "Battle of the Century". The first heavy weight boxing champ that was African American, but before being African American he was "The Rebel to America" and all of its wicked and racist reckless ways. I had only been in the Tribeca Grand twice for parties i had no idea that there was a theater down stairs, small and comfortable probably seats fifty or sixty people. When i was invited i was hesitant because i had some left over seafood that i was trying to get home and eat and relax and wait for all of the trades to happen, but I am glad that T invited me out. The documentary runs about 4 hours but we only saw the first hour of it and i witnessed the last one being sold as i was walking to buy the DVD that they had on sale, I say all of that to say that was how good the doc was.

Jack Johnson was a boxer who rubbed every racist taunt thrown at him with a scouring pad he called fist against his white opponents faces. He single handily gave those enslaved and kidnapped and oppressed a vision of hope in the 1900's, and he did it with a smile on it. I strongly suggest that you do the knowledge on the Great Jack Johnson

Real Hip Hop still lives in N.Y, I knew this would be a zoo, and I'm not an animal. I stopped long time ago packing in to clubs to see artist, but the venue treats you like cows and then let the joint be over capacity, then its a death trap and you standing for hours to see an artist, that may not give a good show. I knew this would be a great show but fuck that, it is way too hot in NY right now to be packed in Club Sauna. I will catch the you tube version...

The summer is here and i cant believe that its the4th of July Independence day weekend already, its the beginning of the end of summer....
