Today (September 24th) marks the 25th anniversary of the Hip-Hop classic album titled “The Low End Theory” by A Tribe Called Quest released back in 1991.

I still listen to The Low End Theory to this day. 

Every favorite track of the album including “Scenario”, “Check The Rhime”, “Show Business” and “Butter”.

On Sepetmber 13, 1996 Tupac Shakur was pronounced dead around 4:03 afternoon when he was just 25 years old. I was very devastated when it happened.

2Pac was the greatest rapper of all time. His legacy will lives on.

If you don’t know about 2pac and his music, check Wikipedia and Discogs.

In the honor of the 20th anniversary of his passing, check out the teaser of the upcoming Tupac biopic flick All Eyez On Me. Some explicit language in the video so please be warned.

Petey Pablo – Raise Up (USA Flag Remix) [Song + Lyrics]

Today is September 11, 2016 so it’s the 15th anniversary of everything that scared the hell out of America and shocked the world on 9/11.
I was in fourth grade when I was watching the news to see what’s going on that the towers were knocked down and stuff.

I can never forget about that day.

In the honor of 9/11, here’s a song called “Raise Up (USA Flag Remix) by Petey Pablo. This song was released after the September 11 attacks.

In the time of need

When the world is going through so many changes

So many ups and downs, so many obstacles

So much confusion

I take it upon myself as one of them new leaders of hip-hop

To make a change, and bring it to the forefront
USA!! Come on and raise up

Take the flag, put it in the air, spin it like a helicopter

USA!! Come on and raise up

This one’s for you, uh-uh, this one’s for who

Us, us, us, yes sir
USA!! Come on and raise up

Take the flag, put it in the air, spin it like a helicopter

USA!! Come on and raise up

This one’s for you, uh-uh, this one’s for who

Us, us, us, yes sir
Say it loud, United States of America

Time to put it down and do it like this

Now fight for somethin that’s worth it

I’m a country boy, never really cared before what was goin on

Now that it came a little closer to home

I got a couple more, but make somethin go uh-uh

Everybody get strapped

If you gon’ get it let’s get it if you ain’t then get back

Big fella, who dat

All the people around the world that’s why we get through that

Fort Jackson, Fort Bragg, Camp Lejeune and David (damn!)

Pensacola, Parris Island, troops over here, Seals over there

Fort Dix, Fort Lee, Pearl Harbor (let me think)

The Army(ARMY), the Navy(NAVY), Air Force, Marines(RINES)

Green Beret, Navy Seals, New York Police

Even got me dressed in Army Fatigues, how ya love that
USA!! Come on and raise up

Take the flag, put it in the air, spin it like a helicopter

USA!! Come on and raise up

This one’s for you, uh-uh, this one’s for who

Us, us, us, yes sir
USA!! Come on and raise up

Take the flag, put it in the air, spin it like a helicopter

USA!! Come on and raise up

This one’s for you, uh-uh, this one’s for who

Us, us, us, yes sir
You remember them days y’all

When the teacher told us

About World War I and World War II, now the time has come

For us to REP OUR COUNTRY!

Wave the flag strong

And could somebody tell Mr. bin Laden

He got a lot of people lookin for him

My house, my home, my hood

My brother, my sister, my cuz

Land of the free, home of the brave, it’s the land I love

I had to bring it up, ask Petey Brown If I could change it up

Now I really got the whole world raisin up, come on!

And sing with us

Raise up(Raise up!) Raise up(Raise up!) Raise up(Raise up!)

For that star-spangled banner
USA!! Come on and raise up

Take the flag, put it in the air, spin it like a helicopter

USA!! Come on and raise up

This one’s for you, uh-uh, this one’s for who

Us, us, us, yes sir
USA!! Come on and raise up

Take the flag, put it in the air, spin it like a helicopter

USA!! Come on and raise up

This one’s for you, uh-uh, this one’s for who

Us, us, us, yes sir
Thank you Petey Pablo

Cause if we don’t stand for somethin, we’re bound to fall for anything at all

[?] here reporting live from the front lines

Sending lots of love and prayers out to everybody from every corner of the Earth

Who lost a loved one, a homie, a friend

I’m talkin about a mother, father, sister, brother, even a cousin

On September 11th, we miss you, and we love you, and we will never, ever forget

Now..
USA!! Come on and raise up

Take the flag, put it in the air, spin it like a helicopter

USA!! Come on and raise up

This one’s for you, uh-uh, this one’s for who

Us, us, us, yes sir
USA!! Come on and raise up

Take the flag, put it in the air, spin it like a helicopter

USA!! Come on and raise up

This one’s for you, uh-uh, this one’s for who

Us, us, us, yes sir

Rest in peace to all the victims and families who lost their affected lives in 9/11 at New York City.

Mo Money Mo Problems: The Best and Worst Buys of 2016 (So Far)

Ok 2016 was such a horrible year with all the money problems of expenses. I kept a notebook of everything that I have spend on purchasing every item. Money management and budgetinh does mix like pancakes and milk. Some of them was good and some of them was bad. The title of this brand new blog post from one of my favorite songs by Biggie Smalls. The name of this post is “Mo Money Mo Problems: The Best and Worst Buys of 2016 (So Far)”

                                                         BEST:

Pioneer DDJ-SB2 DJ Controller (purchased from March 11) –  The reason I bought it because I want a real DJ controller to try it and lesrn how to be a real scratch DJ. It was a good product that I ever purchased. My DJ name is DJ Rich Master JP. Cool stuff.

“Straight Outta Compton Unrated Director’s Cut” (purchased from January 22) – I don’t even own a Blu-ray dvd player but it was good movie. I’ve seen it twice at the last summer. Blew up on the box office.

Straight Outta Compton: Music From The Motion Picture” (purchased from January 8) – The soundtrack very good enough with some songs that featured in the N.W.A. biopic movie including “Straight Outta Compton” and “No Vaseline” by Ice Cube where he diss NWA and Jerry Heller.

Michigan NCAA Core 9Fifty Snapback (purchased from April 30) – I never had a Michigan hat. I’ve been to Lids if they the fitted ones and Snapback ones so I chose the right one for 24 bucks. 

A Tribe Called Quest “The Low End Theory” (purchased from April 11) – I’ve listened to that album back in 2010 when I was 20 years old. That joint changed my life. ATCQ was popular in the 90’s. I bought the CD after Phife Dawg passed in March 23, 2016. Still one of my favorite albums of the country.

Rihanna “ANTI” (purchased from February 7) – During the Super Bowl weekend I went to the store and ccopped the Rihanna’s CD. It got everybody’s attention with the hits like “Work” featuring Drake and “Needed Me”. I like that album.

Remington Beard Trimmer (purchased from April 11) – I used have to have a electric beard trimmer to shave my beard but it stopped working because of the low battery. I bought another one while I haven’t trim my facial hair since. I used it to cut my own hair.

Heads & Shoulders 2in1 Full Shampoo (purchased from April 15) – One of my favorite shampoo for every hair.

Beyoncé “Lemonade” (purchased from May 7) – One time I watch the HBO special of Beyoncé “Lemonade” video man it was very dope. The CD/DVD visual album was amazing. Best CD purchase ever.

“Reader’s Digest Quintessential Guide To Saving Money” Book (purchased from May 28) – I want to buy a book about money management so it keeps to save money.

Udder Cream (purchased from June 18) – That wwas one of my favorite product that I bought from Dollar Tree. Cheap item to keep my hands away from being moisted.

Eazy-E “Eazy-Duz-It 25th Anniversary Edition” (purchased from April 1) – West Coast rap classic album influenced me. RIP Eazy-E.

                                                       WORST:

ION DJ Live Controller (purchased from January 17) – I ordered it Amazon thru another website. When I got it, I hooked it up to my laptop, and play it. That wasn’t very good enough because of the platter and the software. I mailed it back to the website and got my refund back from them. What a waste of money on buying some piece of crap dj controller. Do not buy it.

Dynex Glow In The Dark Sync Cable (purchased from May 31) – Oh my god I hated that sync cable. I used money from my bank account to buy it because my tablet died. I used it for charging but it drains too much. I’m glad that I recycled that crap.

Insignia USB Blue 4ft Micro Charging Sync Cable (purchased May 22) – What a waste of money on that stupid sync cable. I bought it after seeing the movie Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising. I tried it but it didn’t charge. The next day I took it back to Best Buy and got the refund for it.

Sentry Headphones (purchased from January 26) – The big headphones with volume control was the worst thing that I ever bought. 

Jensen AM/FM Armband Radio (purchased from June 23) – Every time I listen to the Armband radio,  it just turns off automatically. I got rid of it for no reason.

I will never buy every crappy product ever again.

Never again.
