It's been cloudy for the past couple of days here in my neck of the woods. I'm guessing that's the reason why I'm a little out of it. Neither here nor there but long story short, I kicked it wit one of the artists I'll be working with in next couple of months about ciphers.
In our conversation we came to the conclusion that the new generation of emcees know nothing about ciphers. Maybe this is why there music is no good in my opinion. In the days of this subject, the cipher, not only did emcees rap but people had a ritual called building. So the cipher was more than just emcees rapping, those same heads were probably building, or exchanging knowledge with one another.
I believe the lack of this ritual in today's hip hop world has resulted in garbage emcees who never would be allowed to rap in a cipher who don't understand that they are not that good because they dont face off with better emcees. Their substance is also lacking because they don't learn new things because we no longer use this ritual they way we used to. Bring back the culture....

Cruising through twitter viewhiphop.com posted this and I'm just sharing it. I'm such a perv I know...but yikes...I personally wanna know what the pelvic tattoo is a picture of...unbelievable!!!!
Desmond Mpilo Tutu (born 7 October 1931) is a South African activist and retired Anglican bishop who rose to worldwide fame during the 1980s as an opponent of apartheid. He was the first black South African Archbishop of Cape Town, South Africa and primate of the Church of the Province of Southern Africa (now the Anglican Church of Southern Africa).
Tutu has been active in the defence of human rights and uses his high profile to campaign for the oppressed. He has campaigned to fight AIDS, tuberculosis, homophobia, transphobia, poverty and racism. Tutu received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984, the Albert Schweitzer Prize for Humanitarianism in 1986, the Pacem in Terris Award in 1987, the Sydney Peace Prize (1999) the Gandhi Peace Prize in 2005, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009. Tutu has also compiled several books of his speeches and sayings.
By definition of the hip hop culture what this man has done is what hip hop was meant to do. It ain't just music people...Holla!!!!
