CHIEF69 WILL CARE ABOUT HIP HOP NO MATTER WHAT

SONG OF THE WEEK... 


.....PLEASE READ....
many people in my life and maybe in yours if you are a friend of mine or a soldier of the same struggle I am apart of whether or not I am, or YOU ARE aware because we are all subjugated to the gravity of the reality that HIP HOP HAS SAVED OUR LIVES....you will probably never understand how real this lifestyle is for peoplelike me if you have not literally made a 180 degree turn in your life due to the POWER of the self confidence boost, knowledge of self , the brotherhood/sisterhood - family atmosphere that HIP HOP offers that is healthy and positive and only embracing of everything and everyone....many people feel my lifes work thus far in the context of HIP HOP is straight BULLSHIT and they feel we must only operate our lives with the end goal of getting money...they feel we all need to have "REAL JOBS" ....I reply and tell them my work is VERY REAL..they laugh still and say I am a piece of shit and not a single person gives a fuck about me or HIP HOP because it simply does not matter.....you may agree..I DONT..GO TELL THAT TO EVERY KID IN THE HOOD..TELL THEM THEY ARE A PIECE OF SHIT..SPIT IN THEIR FACE..TELL THEM BEING CREATIVE AND DOING FOR YOUR COMMUNITY IS POINTLESS AND NOT A REAL JOB AND THEY WILL BE BUMS IN THE STREET...I REFUSE TO BE THAT ASSHOLE WHO IS PESSIMISTIC AND HAS THE AUDACITY TO DISRESPECT THE WORK OF MANY MANY GREAT PEOPLE I HUMBLY LOOK UP TO AS THE LEADERS IN THIS WORLD ON MANY LEVELS....PLAN AND SIMPLE I DONT THINK YOU SHOULD WALK AROUND WITH THE MENTALITY THAT YOU ARE ABOVE OTHERS AND DONT NEED TO HELP AND YOU MUST FEND FOR YOUR OWN AND YOUR OWN ALONE AND THAT YOU MUST NOT CARE FOR PEOPLE BECAUSE THE RICH PEOPLE WHO CONTROL THIS WORLD ON MANY LEVELS DONT CARE FOR YOU...I REFUSE TO GIVE UP ON HIP HOP..I WILL ALWAYS BE HIP HOP..I MAY BE BROKE..I MAY BE HATED ON..I MAY BE SEEN AS FOOLISH, I MAY BE SEEN AS SOME LOWLIFE WITH MY HOPES AND DREAMS BASED UPON A FANTASY THAT WILL NEVER BE..I MAY EVEN BUT IT IS MY DEVOUT PASSION AND STRIDES FOR HIP HOP THAT GIVE ME REASON TO DEFEND IT AND DEFEND IT BY ANY MEANS....IF NO ONE ELSE IN THIS WORLD GIVES A DAMN ABOUT YOU..I DO EVEN IF ITS JUST ME AND THAT IS MORE REAL THAN ANY AMOUNT OF MONEY , ANY AMOUNT OF DEGREES , ANY AMOUNT OF YOUR OPINION BECAUSE YOU DONT DO THE WORK OF PEOPLE LIKE ME YOU HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO RIGHT EVER TO EVEN LAY CLAIM TO DEFINE HIP HOP OR MY CHARACTER AND I DONT RESPECT YOUR DEMEANOR , YOUR ACTIONS AND AFFILIATIONS........

with that said Id like to say my past week was great here are some pics from my travels to SUNY PURCHASE for THE CYHER event thrown by G.R.I.O.T - I did a HIP HOP lecture and some body art... and to Hartford Connecticut for Neutral Grounds 2vs. 2 Bboy battle for which I was one of the battle judges and I also did more body art....
