Jay-Z album – Magna Carta Holy Grail (Darren’s thoughts)

h5dba8

The above Photo speaks volumes about what in my opinion Jay-Z has brought to Hip-Hop… corporate thinking that has taken the focus away from the struggles of ordinary African-Americans. I’ve seen numerous interviews with the man on Television & in print over the years, with the impression I always get is his OWN feeling of self-importance – maybe it’s cultural perhaps with him being an American and a rapper?

After watching the below short video from Samsung – yeah that’s correct.
Hip-Hop has gone from it’s understandable connection with Street Culture especially Fashion to now sadly selling Mobile Phones for a South Korean Multinational.

You’ll be understanding my viewpoint after this Promotional Advert for Jay-Z new album out on the *4th of July (as one does) –

Magna Carta Holy Grail‘…

The manner of the advert in making Jay-Z appear as if some form genius is laughable, I suggest it’s more to do with having Corporations constantly informing us (the 99%) that he is?

After seeing that ‘Glory/Worship Fest’ of Jay-Z, I connected it with a conversation that BBC Hip-Hop DJ – Tim Westwood had with 50 Cent around sarcastic remarks made by Jay-Z regarding Mr. Cent.

What results is a very interesting analysis from 50 Cent on the psychology of Jay-Z in late 2009.

Watch from 3mins : 30secs onwards…

Hip-Hop is now under the tight control of the Corporate Elite, as they realised the raw power of the music as a way to improve humanity for the 99% in raising awareness of social inequality & bringing diverse people together – therefore ending ignorance. As mentioned in my now extensive archive on this website; culture has been hijacked by a Western Elite with the aim of lowering the intelligence of Consumers yet maximising profits. This is why Musicians with the Political Strength of John Lennon or Joan Baez aren’t around these days, but the current crop who are endorse everything from Luxury Cars to Chewing Gum.

Ask yourself is life in this early 21st Century Perfect, are all the problems of Humanity been successfully eradicated?

The answer sadly & possibly tragically for all of us is NO…

I’ll end this article with a surprising recent upload on Tim Westwood’s vast YouTube Channel, something that he was involved way back in 1990. That being a time when Rappers might not have had Off-shore Bank Accounts yet could understand the ordinary person on the street…

*Note:
Jay-Z released his breakthrough Album –
‘The Blueprint’ on Tuesday 11th September 2001 with some it actually being recorded in Manhattan (Manhattan Center Studios)
.

Prompt – Senja

Nice slab of atmospheric deep house from Prompt here in the shape of ‘Senja’, which has some stirring chords, infectious percussion and an ever evolving soundscape. There’s only a dub and instrumental offered in the package, which with the original shorn of vocals mean there’s little variation between the three tracks, but in the digital age that isn’t the end of the road. Well worth your attention nevertheless.

Out on 7Noise 3rd July.

Darren’s thoughts – The Tragedy in the UK 23rd May

h5dba8

On Wednesday 22nd May 2013, London became Gotham City after an off-duty member of the British Military was attacked with blades by two followers of extreme violent Islamic fundamentalism in the early afternoon.

The reason for the connection with Gotham City is due to the following two disturbing examples:

1).

2).

It could be seen that reality has sadly been connected with fiction, for those reading this article that aren’t currently in the UK the thing that has worried the nation is the manner of the two attackers. That being delivering an act extreme violence but then calmly explaining their actions to witnesses, requesting that those with Smartphones record what occurred & even waiting for what they would have realized would be an armed response anti-terrorism unit of The Metropolitan Police.

In the DC Comics, the Joker’s use of spectacular acts of violence is with the aim of creating mass hysteria in the majority of citizens of Gotham. This Headline connects with that approach…

The above image shows that ‘The Joker’ actually in some manner sees himself not as an anarchist-nihilist but as a liberator against what he would classify as the ultimate joke of existence. I’d guess he’d want the following played at his funeral as a result of Batman finally having enough of the ‘jokes’, so to speak…

Strangely, that video was also filmed on a London street. How life is presented is very interesting in that when you’re a child it seems anything is possible & can be achieved. I clearly remember being asked in school at around 6 years old what occupation I wanted to fulfill when becoming an adult, and my response was that of a Reverend.

At that time, I was fascinated by the tales of Moses & Jesus in standing up to injustice, specifically oppression of the poor, but also promoting love/honour. This belief-system was in reaction to anything North of Birmingham during the 1980’s being targeted for demolition by a certain Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Looking back, her Cabinet wasn’t that pleasant either.

As I grew into the world, I became aware that the most humane people aren’t rewarded in this life, going against what was told to us by adults during those infant years. The reality is that those who are the most ruthless, obtain the positions that influence society.

For those that have read my back catalogue of articles on this site will realize I couldn’t be compatible with working as a Reverend within The Church of England, as I am certainly not a corporate kind of guy but more a free person that stands against injustice.

Frustration in Britannia.

Let’s change the pace & look at the calibre of those whom have made themselves ‘Servants of the Public’ – you know them as Politicians.
Specifically former Prime Minister Tony Blair & his right-hand man Jack Straw, both of whom had an interesting manner of dealing with the requests for justice from families of those we now know died at Hillsborough due to Police negligence. On Monday 20th May 2013, the BBC went against its normal approach of sitting on the fence & broadcast a documentary that left the viewer with the undeniable conclusion that the power elite of the UK is immoral & corrupt. BBC editing that clearly shows the interviewer & employee Peter Marshall producing an epic moment of non-verbal communication, in his response due to Jack Straw’s 2013 hindsight:

Click, here for Marshall’s moment at Straw’s expense

A current example of the manner of separation between those in control & ordinary people here in the UK is the current Minister of Education – Michael Gove. Mr. Gove has NEVER worked in Education, and also doesn’t hold any qualifications in Teaching yet has declared on numerous occasions that he’s got the insight to improve the entire compulsory education sector! I am now wondering about the basic numeracy skills of a certain George Osbourne after realizing about Gove’s mentioned lack of expertise.

So, we are living in a world that is increasing becoming insane possibly due to the fact that we can banish those long-lasting needs with the aid of science & technology. I had a conversation with a person that had recovered from Heroin addiction, replacing the drug with Art, and they told me the strange relationship of using that drug in that the addict knows it’s poison but is afraid of life when clean of it, as taking Heroin for all it’s destruction IS normality.

It’s highly likely that a small select group of individuals require people to still be paying for Petroleum that pollutes rather than the exciting FREE Clean-Energy.

‘Iran Already Has Free Energy Technology That Could Render Military Industrial Complex Obsolete’ – by Patrick Henningsen for 21st Century Wire [Monday 25th February 2013]

Constant Western Military involvement in Muslim Nations of the Middle-East that again makes money for those within stocks & shares of that sector. Then due to being in that part of the world we have immigration having sectors of British society actually despising the nation that granted them citizenship/refugee status. Those whom have the financial means of production gain from this cultural/religious/racial tension as the native population is more concerned about the changing demographics/community cohesion than who’s the major players living the V.I.P Lifestyle that control the UK’s cash-flow… the Mr. Big’s, so to speak. The Divide and Rule method was used very successful by The British Empire on others; who’s to say this simply isn’t some ’21st Century Remix’ being applied within the UK now?

Beheading a Man on a South-London Road in the name of Islam isn’t going to change anything just like joining the English Defence League in protection of English values against Muslims. What will change is intelligent analysis of exactly how the UK’s works especially the major-players or you could just believe everything the TV Newsreader say’s every night or a person you’ve classified as a Leader.

One of the proudest moments in British History was The Suffragette Movement (1889 – 1928) those 39 years saw an intense but non-violent approach that eventually got all adult women the right to participate in voting during Elections. We can either learn from historical fact or be a dummy wearing Stone Island Wooly Hats as a sign of ‘real manhood’, engaging in violence that’s doesn’t create solutions just more problems & the UK’s got enough to deal with already.

Or it might be part of some sort of plan, perhaps?

Note:
Due to the terrorism of Wednesday 22nd May 2013, lot’s of anger & overt racism is currently being expressed via Social Networking (Facebook, Twitter & BBM).

Please spread this article as a response that hopefully will make people gain awareness rather than be victims of a cruel joke.
