FEAR OR RACISM??

AS I HOP INA CAB TO GO HOME, THE DRIVER ASKS ME "YOU CALL FOR TAXI?" WITH A SPANISH ACCENT. I THEN RESPOND AND ANSWER HIM IN SPANISH. I ALSO TAKE THE LIBERTY OF TELLING HIM WHERE IM GOIN, JUST TO REASSURE HIM THAT I WAS THE ONE THAT CALLED. YOU SEE, I HAD JUST LEFT THE PROJECTS. HE THEN TELLS ME, HOW HE THOUGHT IT WAS THIS OTHER "MORENO" (SPANISH SLANG FOR DARK-SKINNED PERSON) HE HAD SEEN AT THE CORNER. I CHUCKLED. HE THEN PROCEEDED TO TELL ME HOW RELIEVED HE WAS WHEN HE HEARD ME SPEAK SPANISH. HE ASKED ME OF MY NATIONALITY, I TOLD EM HONDURAN. HE SAID, "GARIFUNA?"(GOOGLE IT), I SAID YES. I ASKED HIM, YOU KNOW ANY PERSONALLY? HE ANSWERED IN SPANISH AND SAID "YES, I HAVE MANY HONDURAN GARIFUNA FRIENDS". I SAID COOL. HE THEN TOLD ME, HE TELLS ALL HIS GARIFUNA FRIENDS TO SPEAK SPANISH WHEN THEY TAKE A CAB, I ASKED WHY. HE SAID, SO THE DRIVER WILL KNOW THAT THEY ARE NOT AFRICAN-AMERICAN. NOW AT THIS POINT, IM THINKIN TO MYSELF, I KNOW WHY THESE CAB DRIVERS ARE SCARED TO PICK-UP YOUNG BLACK MEN, BUT I WANNA PICK HIS BRAIN, HEAR IT FROM THE HORSE'S MOUTH. SO I ENGAGE IN JUST ENOUGH CONVERSATION TO KEEP HIM GOIN, SEEKIN AFFIRMATION TO THIS UNSPOKEN TRUTH. HE THEN ELABORATES AND TELLS ME, EVERYTIME A CAB DRIVER IS ROBBED OR MURDERED, ITS USUALLY A BLACK PERSON WHO DID IT. HE THEN SAID, HONDURANS R HARD WORKERS, JAMAICANS R HARD WORKERS, DOMINICANS R HARD WORKERS, BUT AFRICAN-AMERICANS ARE NOT. THEY WILL KILL YOU OVER $100."I GOT KIDS, A FAMILY AT HOME, ALL THAT IS WORTH $80 TO U?". "THEY'RE UP TO NO GOOD, THEY DONT WORK, THEY ROB, KILL, AND THEY DONT BATHE". THAT OF COURSE IS A STEREOTYPE AND GENERALIZATION. ALL THE WHILE IM LISTENIN, NOT UPSET, BECAUSE GOD WINKS AT IGNORANCE, AND I REFUSE TO EVER LET IT GET THE BEST OF ME. JESUS SAID "FORGIVE THEM LORD, FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO". I SAID THE SAME PRAYER TO MYSELF AT THAT MOMENT. I PRAYED FOR AN OPEN EAR, AN OPEN HEART, AND A CALM SPIRIT. I THEN TOLD HIM, YEA I HAVE HARD TIME STOPPIN CABS AT TIMES, BUT I CANT BLAME THEM, THEY DONT KNO THE GOOD ONES FROM THE BAD ONES. STILL SUCKS THO, CUZ I WALK AROUND BEARIN A REP DAT ISNT MINE. A BAD ONE AT DAT! HE THEN TOLD ME THERE ARE BAD PEOPLE EVERYWHERE, ROBBERS KILLERS, BUT HERE IN THE U.S ITS MORE DISTINGUISHED AMONGST THE AFRICAN-AMERICANS. I POSED THIS QWESTION ON MY TWITTER, AND GOT SOME GOOD RESPONSES, BUT WAT I MOSTLY GOT WAS "IGNORANCE, AND DAS RACIST". BUT I SAT IN AND HEARD THIS GUY'S PERSPECTIVE. NOT JUSTIFYING HIS BELIEF, MORESO RATIONALIZING. UNDERSTANDING ITS ORIGIN. WE FEAR WAT WE DONT UNDERSTAND, BUT HOW MANY OF US GO THE EXTRA MILE AND TRY TO UNDERSTAND IT? NOT MUCH, WE JUS AVOID IT. RIGHT? IF YOU HAD A BAD EXPERIENCE WITH SOMEONE OR SOMEWHERE, WOULDNT U KEEP AWAY FROM IT? ISNT THAT THING TAGGED AS NEGATIVE FOR THE REST OF UR LIFE? ITS NOT RIGHT DAT THESE CAB DRIVERS CAN DRIVE RIGHT PAST US AND ACT AS IF THEY DIDNT SEE US FLAGGIN EM DOWN. ESPECIALLY BECAUSE THEY THINK WE'RE GONNA INFLICT HARM ON THEM. I CAN TELL YOU A BUNCH OF INCIDENCES, BUT IT ALL BOILS DOWN TO THIS. WAS DIS BRUTHA BEIN RACIST? OR WAS HE JUST SPEAKING OUT OF FEAR? CAN U BLAME HIM? IF NOT HIM, THEN WHO? **HERE'S AN LIL VIDEO I GOT FROM THE CONVO..ITS IN SPANISH SO IF YOU DONT SPEAK IT, FIND U A TRANSLATOR LOL..I WASNT GON POST IT, BUT HIS IDENTITY REMAINS ANONYMOUS SO I FIGURED THERE WOULD BE NO HARM DONE TO HIS CHARACTER..

(I GOT THE MIXTAPE PLAYIN AS I TYPE) SO ROCK WITCHA BOY!!
  • THE MEANING BEHIND THE NAME - AS YOU ALL KNO, IM QUITE THE SOCIALITE. I TRY LEAVING AN IMPRESSION ON EVERYONE I MEET, AND EVERYWHERE IV BEEN.

ROLE MODEL SERIES: MUHAMMAD ALI

AS I TURN ON THE TV I SEE A DOCUMENTARY PLAYING ON PROLLY ASIDE, GOD, MY FAVORITE MAN OF ALL-TIME. A MAN WHO WAS NOT ONLY INFLUENTIAL TO THE AUDIENCE OF HIS CRAFT, BUT TO THE WORLD. THIS MAN CHALLENGED POLITICS, BUT WAS NO POLITICIAN. HE SPOKE WITH GREAT CONFIDENCE AND CHARISMA, BUT WAS NO CAR SALESMAN. IN FACT, HE WAS MORE PERSUASIVE THAN ONE. HE EVEN SAID, AND I QUOTE "I figured that if I said it enough, I would convince the world that I really was the greatest." MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. NOT ONLY DID HE TALK THE TALK, BUT HE WALKED THE WALK. HE WAS THE FIRST PERSON TO WIN THE HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP 3 TIMES. YES HE WAS A BOXER. IN MY OPINION, THE GREATEST EVER. HE WAS ALSO AN OUTSTANDING INDIVIDUAL. HE DENIED THE DRAFT FOR THE VIETNAM WAR AND STATED "I ain't draft dodging. I ain't burning no flag. I ain't running to Canada. I'm staying right here. You want to send me to jail? Fine, you go right ahead. I've been in jail for 400 years. I could be there for 4 or 5 more, but I ain't going no 10,000 miles to help murder and kill other poor people. If I want to die, I'll die right here, right now, fightin' you, if I want to die. You my enemy, not no Chinese, no Vietcong, no Japanese. You my opposer when I want freedom. You my opposer when I want justice. You my opposer when I want equality. Want me to go somewhere and fight for you? You won't even stand up for me right here in America, for my rights and my religious beliefs. You won't even stand up for my right here at home." A GREAT MAN WHO STOOD FOR WAT HE BELIEVED. HIS NAME WAS CASSIUS CLAY, OR AS MORE OF US MAY KNO HIM, MUHAMMAD ALI. HIS PERSONA AND INFLUENCE TRANSCENDED THE VERY MEDIUM THAT BROUGHT LIGHT TO HIM, BOXING. HE SERVED AS A ROLE MODEL TO ME BY NOT ONLY BEING THE BEST AT HIS CRAFT AMONGST STELLAR COMPETITION. BUT HE OVERCAME ADVERSITY WHEN THE GENERAL PUBLIC DOUBTED HIM AND ENDED UP ON TOP. AS AN ARTIST, AND AS A MAN, THESE ARE ATTRIBUTES I TAKE NOTE OF AND SHOULD POSSESS TO BE SUCCESSFUL AND INFLUENTIAL TO PEOPLE. HE SAID such things as "
He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life. " WHICH IN MUSIC, MEANS EVERYTHING. IM NOT HERE TO ASSIMILATE TO WHATS GOIN ON NOW, AND FOLLOW THE LEADER. IM TRYNA TO BE THE LEADER. "I know where I'm going and I know the truth, and I don't have to be what you want me to be. I'm free to be what I want." THINGS LIKE THIS GOT ME THROUGH IT BEFORE I EVEN TOOK ON MUSIC AS A CAREER, AND NOW HE GOT ME FEELIN LIKE THIS "It's hard to be humble, when you're as great as I am. " WHY? BECAUSE "I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was". BIG UPS TO MR. ALI. ONE OF MY BIGGEST ROLE MODELS, ONE OF MY FAV MEN OF ALL-TIME.GET'EM CHAMP!

FOR LIBERTY AND DISJUSTICE FOR ALL!

I THINK I CAN SPEAK FOR EVERYONE I KNO IN SAYIN THAT, I AM VERY DISPLEASED WITH OUR JUDICIAL SYSTEM. FROM WASTE OF TIME SUMMONSES, TO RIDICULOUS SENTENCES. I JUS HEARD DAT NAS HAS TO PAY KELIS $55,000/MO IN CHILD SUPPORT. THE KID IS A NEWBORN, FIND ME A KID DAT NEEDS DAT MUCH MONEY MONTHLY , AND ILL BRING U A GRIZZLY BEAR IN A HEADLOCK. IV HAD MY RUN-INS WIT DA LAW AS WELL. IV BEEN ARRESTED TWICE. ONE TIME WAS FOR DRIVIN WITH A SUSPENDED LICENSE, HERE'S THE GOOD PART, I WAS SITTIN IN A PARKED CAR. YEA I KNO, TELL ME ABOUT IT. MOST RECENTLY,I RECEIVED A SUMMONS FOR "RIDING IN BETWEEN TRAIN CARTS", THEY LISTED IT AS "TRESPASSING" WHICH IS PROHIBITED ON MTA TRANSIT IN NYC. THE TWIST?I WASN'T RIDING NE THING. (PAUSE) THE TRAIN WAS SITTIN AT THE STATION, WIT THE DOORS OPEN WHEN I WALKED THRU. RIDICULOUS, YEA I KNO LOL. I TELL THE OFFICER, " THE TRAIN WASN'T MOVIN, AND THE DOORS WERE OPEN", WHILE WRITIN THE TICKET, HE HAS THE NERVE TO TELL ME,"DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT,JUS GO TO COURT, THEY'LL THROW IT OUT" SO I LOOK AT HIM AND SAY, "WELL WHY GIVE IT TO ME THEN?". OF COURSE, HE STAYS QUIET AND PROCEEDS TO WRITE OUT MY INFORMATION ON THE PAPER. SO NOW I'M SITTIN AT THE COURTHOUSE TODAY, AND I OVERHEAR DIS GUY TELLIN HIS STORY. IT JUS SO HAPPENS DAT HE WAS GIVEN A TICKET FOR DISORDERLY CONDUCT, FOR BEATIN HIS SON, AFTER HIS SON TOLD HIM TO "SUCK HIS D*CK". DISRESPECTFUL, I KNO. IDDA BEAT MY SON'S @$$ IF HE TOLD ME DAT TOO! SO UR TELLIN ME, FOR DISCIPLININ MY CHILD, I GOTTA SEE THE JUDGE??? NOT THE ONE WHO TOLD ME TO SPARE THE ROD, BUT ONE WHO HAS NO IDEA OF HOW MY FAMILY OPERATES. PRETTY FAIR HUH? I ALWAYS DEFENDED COPS AND JUSTIFYIN THEIR BEHAVIOR BY SIMPLY SAYIN "THEY'RE JUS DOIN THEIR JOBS". BUT FOR THE MOST PART, I FEEL THEY'RE DOIN A BAD ONE. NOT SAYIN ALL COPS R BAD, BUT MOST ARE JERKS. I CAN SIT HERE AND TELL U SOME PRETTY FOUL STUFF IV WITNESSED AND BARED THRU IN MY INTERACTIONS WIT LAW ENFORCEMENT, AND I'M FAR FROM A TROUBLEMAKER...LOL..NO BUT SERIOUSLY THO. BUT IM GLAD IV WENT THRU IT,CUZ IV LEARNED A LOT...FROM THE BOYS IN BLUE, TO THE MAN IN THE BLACK ROBE, ITS A DIRTY GAME. SO EDUCATE YASELF, N LEARN HOW TO PLAY IT. STAY TUNED, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, STAY BLESSED. MYLEZ MENG!!

BUSINESS MOVE? OR SELL-OUT?

SO ME & MY BOTHERS(SEVERE, DIRT AKA BXL) WERE PART OF A COMPETITION LAST NITE...IT WAS SPONSORED BY BUDWEISER AND NY'S POWER 105.1 FM. THE VENUE WAS DOWNTOWN ON CANAL STREET AND BOY DID THE PEOPLE COME ROLLIN IN WHEN THE DOORS OPENED. AS I DO BEFORE EVERY SHOW BEFORE I HIT THE STAGE, I WAS NERVOUS, HAD A FEW BUTTERFLIES, WHICH USUALLY DISSIPATES AFTER I STEP ON STAGE. MUSIC WAS BUMPIN, CELEBRITY JUDGES GETTIN READY, MODELS WALKIN AROUND, WE WERE INTERVIEWED, FREE BUDWEISER ALL NITE, CAMERAS WERE ROLLIN, ALL DAT GOOD STUFF. IT WAS LIKE A SCENE OUT OF A MOVIE, NUTHIN IM NOT USED TO OR HAVENT SEEN AS YET, BUT A WELL PUT TOGETHER PRODUCTION NONETHELESS. I WAS FEELIN GOOD, TRYNA GET IN MY ZONE, UNTIL ONE OF THE PHOTOGRAPHERS ASKED TO TAKE A PHOTO OF US. NUTHIN OUT OF THE USUAL, WE TAKE FLIX ALL THE TIME, BUT DIS TIME, IT WAS DIFFERENT. THE YOUNG LADY WORKED FOR BUDWEISIER, SO NOT ONLY DID WE HAVE TO STAND IN FRONT OF A BUDWEISER BANNER, SHE GAVE ALL 3 OF US A BUDWEISER TO HOLD, AND SHE SAID "JUS TALK TO EACH UTHA, MAKE IT LOOK NATURAL" AS SHE SNAPPED AWAY. AT FIRST I WAS RELUCTANT, N TRIED TO HAND IT BACK TO HER WHILE SAYIN "NAH I DONT DRINK" CUZ AS THOSE WHO KNO ME PERSONALLY KNO, I DONT. WELL RECENTLY I STARTED SIPPIN HERE N THERE, BUT IM NO DRINKER, NEVA BEEN DRUNK IN MY 25 YEARS OF LIFE. I HAVE A 2-DRINK MAX, I NEVA DRINK MORE THAN DAT, WHETHER IT BUZZES ME OR NOT, 2 THE MOST. SO BACK TO THIS PHOTO OPP. I TRY HANDIN THE YOUNG LADY BACK THE BOTTLE OF BUD, SHE IGNORES ME N JUS BEGIN TO TAKE PICTURES, MEANWHILE DIRT N SEVERE ENGAGE IN A MOCK CONVERSATION AS INSTRUCTED. SO I JUMP IN BUT IM ACTUALLY TELLIN EM, "YO I DONT FEEL COMFORTABLE WIT DIS B, DIS AINT MY STYLE" I EVEN TRY TO GIVE ONE OF DEM THE BOTTLE, BUT BY THEN, THE YOUNG LADY HAD TAKEN BOUT 10 PHOTOS OF US LOL..SO NOW IM THINKIN, THESE PIX WILL CIRCULATE WIT ME HOLDIN A BOTTLE OF BUDWEISER, AND IM A SELF-PROCLAIMED, "NON-DRINKER"...FOR SEVERAL PERSONAL REASONS WHICH AT DIS MOMENT I DECIDE TO KEEP CONFIDENTIAL. BUT CHEA, MY BROS DIDNT HAVE A PROB, BECAUSE THEY DO DRINK. WHICH IS FINE BY ME, I LOVE EM NO LESS. I EVEN RAP ABOUT IT IN SOME OF MY SONGS, BUT DAS TO CATER TO THOSE WHO DO ENJOY DRINKIN. MY DILEMMA? WAS DIS A BUSINESS MOVE FOR A POSSIBLE ENDORSEMENT? AND AS ARTISTS , YEA THERES MONEY IN THE MUSIC, BUT ENDORSEMENTS BRING IN BIGGER BUCKS. THERE WILL BE PRODUCTS ASKIN US TO ENDORSE TO APPEAL TO A CERTAIN DEMOGRAPHIC, AND THEY WILL BE OFFERIN BIG BUCKS TO TELL PEOPLE TO BUY THEIR PRODUCT. ITS BUSINESS. BUT DID I JUS SELL-OUT AND COMPROMISE MY MORALE? OR IS IT NO BIG DEAL? THIS BUSINESS AINT AN EASY ONE, YOU GOTTA DO WAT YOU GOTTA DO TO STAY RELEVANT, AND KEEP THE REVENUE ROLLIN, ESPECIALLY WHEN U DONT HAVE A HIT SINGLE IN ROTATION. I PRAY TO GOD EVERYDAY TO GIVE ME STRENGTH, AND TO HELP ME MAKE THE RIGHT DECISIONS IN LIFE. I PRAY HE WALKS WIT ME AS I WALK AMONGST NON-BELIEVERS, AND ALLOW THEM TO SEE THE SPIRIT OF GOD IN ME. HERE'S THE HARD PART, IM HUMAN. PRAY FOR ME YALL, DIS IS GONNA BE A JOURNEY!! STAY TUNED, AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, STAY BLESSED..MYLEZ MENG!!

CHIVALRY BEEN DEAD...

"WHEN YOU TAKIN ME OUT?", "YOU NOT GON OPEN THE DOOR FOR ME?" HERE'S MY FAV, " WE DON'T SPEAK CAUSE U DON'T CALL ME". WELL I GUESS YOU AIN'T PAY YA BILL THEN, SINCE U CAN ONLY RECEIVE CALLS!! LOL. CUT IT OUT LOVE!! WE'RE LIVIN IN A DAY AND AGE WHERE THE FINE LINE BETWEEN COURTESY AND OBLIGATION HAS BEEN BLURRED. WOMEN ARE BEHAVIN LIKE MEN AND MEN ARE BEHAVIN LIKE WOMEN. THEY'RE BECOMIN MORE AND MORE INTIMIDATED BY A WOMAN'S ECHELON. SAD BUT TRUE. WHAT'S MORE INTERESTIN IS THE FACT THAT THESE SAME LINES U MAY HEAR FROM WOMEN ARE A DIRECT RESULT FROM SUCH LINES AS "I DON'T NEED NO MAN TO DO NUTHIN FOR ME" OR "I'M STRONG AND INDEPENDENT WOMAN" OR "I GET MY OWN MONEY". A SELF-INFLICTED WOUND IF U WILL. THIS SAME SUPER-INDEPENDENT MENTALITY IS WHAT HAS PUSHED BROTHERS AWAY FROM BEIN GENTLEMEN. SORRY LADIES, BUT U BROUGHT DIS UPON YOURSELF. MEN WANNA FEEL NEEDED, THEY WANT TO BE ABLE TO PROVIDE, EVEN IF YOU MAKE MORE MONEY THAN THEM. SO WITH ALL THIS GASSIN DAT DESTINY'S CHILD IGNITED, WOMEN HAVE BEEN SO "IN YOUR FACE" WITH DIS NEW FOUND CONFIDENCE. IT'S IN MEN'S FACES SO MUCH, DAT GUYS R JUS SAYIN "OK,DO YOU" LOL..."WHAT DO U NEED ME FOR?" THE VERY SAME ATTITUDE IS WAT HAS MEN BECOMIN COMPLACENT WITH MEDIOCRITY; NOT HAVIN TO BE AS EFFICIENT AS THEY WERE IN DA DAYS OF CHIVALRY. ITS WHY 9/10 TIMES, DAT INITIAL PHYSICAL ATTRACTION MIGHT NOT GO PAST DAT. UNLESS U LEAVE A LANE OPEN FOR HIM TO BE DAT MAN FOR YOU, HE WON'T BE. CHIVALRY BEEN DEAD, TIMES ARE CHANGIN, BUT LADIES, LET A MAN BE DA MAN, AND STOP TRYNA PUFF YA CHEST OUT AS FAR AS HE DOES. I LOVE AN INDEPENDENT WOMAN, BUT HUMILITY IS KEY. TALK TO ME LADIES...STAY TUNED, MORE IMPORTANTLY, STAY BLESSED. MYLEZ MENG!!

SUMMER INVESTMENTS

AS I SIT ON MY PORCELAIN THRONE TYPIN DIS ENTRY, I THINK TO MYSELF, (SIGH) MAN, SUMMER IS FINALLY HERE...SKOOL'S OUT, TEMPERATURE GOES UP SOME DEGREES, TRIPS ARE PLANNED, AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, WE BUILD NEW RELATIONSHIPS. COUPLES BREAK UP IN THE NAME OF ELIGIBILITY AND FREEDOM THRU THIS TIME OF YEAR. WE MAKE NEW FRIENDS AS WE ATTEND ALL THESE SOCIAL GATHERINGS. MORE COMMONLY, WE THINK AHEAD, BECAUSE, LETS' FACE IT, AFTER THE SUMMER, IT ONLY GETS COLDER. NIGHTS GET LONGER,AND THE HOLIDAYS COME AROUND. WHO WOULD WANNA ENDURE ALL THAT ALONE? NOBODY WITH A BEATING HEART I ASSUME. AS HUMANS WE STRIVE FOR COMPANIONSHIP, LADIES, CUT DAT "I DON'T NEED NO MAN" MANTRA, FELLAS FORGET THAT "PIMPIN" STATE OF MIND, CUZ WE ALL HAVE THE VERY SAME THOUGHT COME TO MIND AT SOME POINT AND TIME. A THOUGHT DAT BECOMES QUITE REGULAR DURING THE SUMMER. REVEALING ATTIRE, FRESH CUTS, TOES OUT, EVERYONE TRYNA GET THEIR SEXY ON. ITS THE MOST SUGGESTIVE TIME OF THE YEAR. WHEN'S A BETTER TIME TO SHOP FOR A MATE? SO WE MEET OUR NEW FRIENDS, WHO BECOME POTENTIAL LOVERS SOMEWHERE BETWEEN, "HI" AND "ILL CALL U". CARDS GET PLAYED RIGHT AND RIGHT BEFORE AUTUMN REACHES, WE'RE BOO-BOO'D UP. RIDIN HIGH ON THE LOVE TIDE. THANKSGIVIN COMES, WE MEET THE FAM, CHRISTMAS IS THE ENCORE, AND BY NEW YEARS WE'RE THANKIN GOD, HAPPY WE FOUND EACH OTHER IN THE YEAR DAT WE'VE COME TO PASS. THINGS GET ROCKY, BUT VALENTINES COMES RIGHT IN TIME TO PROVIDE DAT PLATFORM TO WORK THINGS OUT. BUT WAIT, SPRING SLOWLY APPROACHES, AND WE ALL KNO HOW RAINY IT GETS IN THE SPRING TIME. WHEN IT RAINS IT POURS. BEFORE YOU KNO IT, SOMEONE NEEDS SPACE TO RETHINK THINGS, AND THE END RESULT? I'M SINGLE AGAIN RIGHT IN TIME FOR SUMMER! ITS A VICIOUS CYCLE, BUT SOMEONES GOTTA LIVE IT LOL. MY ADVICE, LOVE IS UNCONDITIONAL, WHY MAKE IT SEASONAL? IF U GON INVEST TIME AND EMOTION INTO SOMEONE, TAKE YA TIME, TAKE ALLLLL DA TIME U NEED! EVALUATE THE PRODUCT & RESEARCH DA MARKET. I'M SURE YOU DON'T WANT YOUR STOCK TO CRASH, CUZ IT'LL MAKE IT DAT MORE DIFFICULT FOR YOU WITH YOUR NEXT INVESTMENT. STAY TUNED, BUT MORE IMPORTANLY, STAY BLESSED. FEEL FREE TO DROP UR TWO CENTS.
