Anybodh here heard of Saul Williams? He did an interview in the Wake up Show, Vol 8 that sums up this thread.
The conspiracy, "republican rappers", basically all the ballin' thug pimp rappers who say nothing positive or useful in 10,000 words, unless you
consider blatant mega-materialism positive, are getting paid by corporate america to spread it's message. Meanwhile kids bobbong their head in an
afirmative motion to the glorified ideas of platinum, ice, rides, cribs, and get it no matter what it takes. The corporate government is served
twice by these fools, once by providing a market in useless but expensive crap, and by keeping common man at war, whether it be some kid gettin mugged
for his nikes in the park, or diamond wars in sierra leone, they laugh while we shooting at each other.
Remember when Ice T came out with the Body Count album? He got banned pretty quick. His message was violence against athourity, which he needed
to employ for shock value, to sell albums, to be controversial enough to get heard. But, if you really listened to the album it's more about unity
of the common man against the oppressors, and that unity message is what really got him banned.
Republican rap is NOT
Hip hop is about expresion of your emotions, not your wealth. The peoples who started hip hop came from the streets, seen and done lots of stuff,
lived to tell, so the art form in itslf sprang from an already impoverished and oppressed class of society, so hip hop inherently will contain violent
overtones. People who grew up in a harsh world aren't gonna be rappin' about sunshine, flowers, and rainbows.
Ever hear of Clarence 13x?
Amongst his teachings, one prominent view in the hip hop community is that of the 5 percent, the 10 percent, and the 85 percent.
Basically there's 5 percent of the people on this planet who have the ability to see "the matrix" or are basically truly righteous, basically this
group has a high bs filter and are not easily fooled, manipulated or brainwashed because they see the blatantcy, somehow their minds are not corrupted
with a curse of cozy materaialism as a core value. Subsequnetly lots of 5 percenters use hip hop to spread the message where it's needed most, to
the youth who need knowledge, structure and some direction of conepts, encouraging you to think. The 10 percent ins "the man", or those knowingly
or unknowingly (see: Republican rappers above) keep the population below them, struggling, and remain the elite, or in the employ of the elite
corporate government power structure. The 85 percent? Well, that's everybody else, the tv watchers, the fat dumb and happy, the "uncivilized
content", the sheeple, those who keep warring amongst each other over trivial materialistic things, the 50 hour a week slaves to their comforatable
isolation chamber life, force fed mind control drugs and social programming.
The teachings also state that the righteous man is god, the righteous woman, earth, and that the invisible man in the sky doesn't exist. Basically
that wise and intelligent man seeking truth and living in harmony wit the universe is god of himself. This concept (which i believe to be a more
realistic theology and a fairly good metaphor for the quantum universe) gives kids with nothing empowerment with the knowledge that they are god, and
that they are ultimately in control of their world with thought.
Oh, and from Jedi Mind Tricks, check out "Communion: Crop Circle Thesis" from the Psycho-Social Biological album.
Follow me beyond the cloud
In the stratosphere, to the House of El Huul
It should lead you to a place opposite my heavenly throne
In the temple of ancient Kimet
Who discovered the wonders and the 24 elders
These beings, the Rasqiniaans
Come to enlighten you
With supreme Mathematics
7 feet tall in diameter
These elders sit
On the flight in the craft Niburu
Passing through the universe density levels
Heading straight for the wrath of Andromeda
Elliptical physical galaxy
Containing beings in the line of Dracos
Stomping on negative snakes like Broncos
Create magnetic field around my aura
Negative energy creates the spiritual slaughter
Where you dwell in the physical world is horror!
