"You have to have a dream so you can get up in the morning." - Billy Wilder

If you don't have dreams, you're nothing more than a walking empty soul. You should always aspire to attain a higher level of success that you've previously accomplished. There's nothing wrong with wanting more. Don't live vicariously through anyone else. It is misleading, and can be deadly. That's their path and much like them, your journey is not for others to understand; therefore, carve your own lane with your own aspirations, and make sure they're huge. It's as simple as being a leader, and not a follower. Be the head, not the tail. Set the bar high, but make sure you lay a solid foundation that will stand the test of time, and be able to assist each following footstep. Enable yourself to be a catalyst for a fellow dreamer who may not realize the power that they possess.

Dream, and dream big. Dream SO big that you even surprise yourself with your success. Reach for the unfathomable. Not only is it inspirational and motivating to you, but it could very well be the confirmation and direction needed for others. Allow the praise & accolades you achieve to be just another rung on the ladder of successful progression for those who come after you. Dream just as you fly in an airplane, above the clouds...WAY above the clouds. Never sell yourself short, nor your dreams. Aim to be bigger and better than somebody you admire and respect. With motivation, and dedication & most importantly preparation, any and everything you set out to do is possible. Follow your dreams to see how far they take you. If the endpoint you reach is not the destination you're looking for, dream bigger and better.

Ya Unnastand: Things Black Folks Do That White People Don’t Understand

I can’t lie, Black people do a lot of weird things. From naming our children after popular liquors to being upset that the media falsely portrays us as violent WHILE TALKING ABOUT a quadruple murder committed by your friendly neighborhood ninjas over a “gold-colored bracelet”, its no wonder that so many white women are fascinated by Black men. We’re like the enigmatic puzzle that makes you feel the rhythm and feel the rhyme.
I mean, it makes you get on up.
No Jodeci.
That was a two-for-one, by the way.
Well, despite the best laid plans of mice and men, there are some things that Black folks do that make complete and total sense that white people and others really don’t seem to understand (though some of our Hispanic brothers and sisters clearly get it). Since we’re in the business of enlightenment and since The Champ actually thanked you all for letting us be the best thing about your day – a personal high for VSB – I figure I should learn you something.
My guitar strums.
1. Rock baseball caps of random teams
Like most hat-wearing Black men, I have a hat collection that includes teams for which I couldn’t care less about and places I’ve never been. Apparently, white guys only wear hats for teams upon which they hold allegiance. White people, this is the thing, we sport said accessories because we like the colors and are fashionable. We’re a colorful group of colored people. The world is not Yankee’s fans, but that hat goes with EVERYTHING. I love my LA Dodgers hat, but I don’t give a damn about the Dodgers, I just love the colors. Same with my Oakland A’s hat, my St. Louis Cardinals hat, etc.
So my white friends out there, STOP asking me how my squad is going to do this year in our division as I don’t even know what division we’re in. I just like my hat. It looks cool, b*tch.
2. Loiter
Between Blacks and Mexicans, I’m not sure who’s the most loiterous, but we just love to stand outside in some random locale and, well, stand there. We’re a people of word and gathering. Why do you think Black folks are so religious. It’s loitering with purpose. Plus, half of us don’t pay our bills on time so our power can be cut anytime. Do you know what never gets cut off? Air. That sh*t is free right now and we like to use it. It’s like the gift that keeps on giving. Mostly, we as Black people, REALLY hate not being up on neighborhood gossip, so we all stand around with one another making sure we get it all. Loiter deez.
3. Complicated Dap
We’re musical. We’re rhythmic. We do everything to time. Hell, I’m writing this based on iambic pentameter. What does that have to do with the price of jockstraps in Kosovo? Nothing. I’ll bet the concept of “dap” started during the slavery days as another means to guide slaves to freedom. I mean, you can only sing “Wade In The Water” and “Follow the Drinking Gourd” for so long. White folks know about The Big Dipper. Plus, all Black folks can’t sing. Why do we still do it then? Because we’re cooler than everybody else. And we like to loiter.
4. Wear suits with 8 buttons
A lot of us have been broke in life. Which means we didn’t get any buttons. Just zippers. My first suit had 17 zippers in the places where buttons were supposed to go. Do you know what it feels like to not have buttons?  My remote controls had sewn on numbers for the first 17 years of my life. CLOTH. I couldn’t change the channel. I just watched Bonanza all day. We wear so many buttons for freedom and the American way. And also because a lot of us are just damn tacky. Steve Harvey, I’m looking at you. Oh, and Atlanta, Chicago, Mississippi, Detroit and pretty much the whole state of Florida, I’m ALSO looking at you.

Would You Try One?

In 2003, Florian Jenett and Valentin Beinroth placed about 50 handgun replicas in downtown Frankfurt. The guns were made from tinted ice, making them look real at first sight. In 2009 they did a new edition of their Freeze! project but made the guns edible by using coke, licorice, cherry and food coloring.

Big K.R.I.T - My Interpretation

My Interpretation

Here's the latest track from my new favorite rapper, Big K.R.I.T. Mississippi's own produces his own beats, and most importantly spits that shit, channeling an inner Chad Butler on the boards and in the booth (with all due respect of course). He's already worked with all the hottest artists right now from Wiz Khalifa, Curren$y, Smoke DZA, Nipsey Hu$$le & others. Check the album. It's right behind The Roots' - How I Got Over for Album of The Year. (in my humble yet arrogant opinion of course)

Kanye West- Power remix (feat. Jay-Z & Swizz Beatz)

FINALLY, after saying it would be here LAST Friday!

(Kudos to Swizz Beatz for using the Snap!- Power sample.)

The song should speak for itself, but just in case it doesn't, peep...

Jigga gave Kanye a big brother-esque heart to heart about life.

"Rumble young man rumble
Life is a trip, so sometimes we gon' stumble
You gotta go through pain in order to become you

But once the world loves you, you'll feel like it's only one you
Now you got the power to do anything you want to
Until you ask yourself, is this what it's all come to?"

Kanye gave a smooth transition verse before wrecking his last verse.

"What do it mean to be the boss?

It mean second place is the first one who lost
The crucifixion, to being nailed to the cross, truth or fiction?
It's a hell of a cost. Do the dishes.
I'm bout to hit that Jeff Gordon
Michael Jordan the only one more important
but I be feeling like Jordan when I'm recordin'
cuz every time I record, I dunk & slap the boards"
Hate on it if you want to, but you're only wasting your time.

The Boondock Education

White imperialism is just as rampant as ever. Every episode shows the white man one-upping black folk, in one way or the other. Don’t believe us? Examine the season finale of the show’s third season where the corrupt realtor Ed Wuncler, Sr., Gin Rummy and his grandson Ed Wuncler III walk away… no harm, no foul, after plotting a terrorist attack.

Colorism is still a hot button issue. Look at all of the women that granddad has eloped with or has taken out on nice candle lit dinners. They all have one thing is common: they are all racially-ambiguous, slim, light-skinned women with straight hair. Another example, anything that comes out of Uncle Ruckus’ mouth.

It’s even harder when you’ve made it. Notorious B.I.G. had it right the first time, “Mo’ money, mo’ problems.” Robert Freeman took his boys Huey and Riley out of the ghetto and brought them to Woodcrest, getting them away from the noise and the peril of the inner city. But constant pressures from egotistical Hurricane Katrina injured kinsfolk, rowdy ghetto blaster jamming gangsta rappers and nosy neighborhood watch creepers, its hard to really too keep your head up when everyone around you is trying to bring you down.

"Academic Probation" Lega-c (Review)

Lega-c's fans have patiently waited for the release of "Academic Probation" which is his sophomore release. If you've followed Lega-c from his first release, "The SmarTrip Chronicles Vol 1" you'll hear his growth. Lega-c teamed up with a few good producers and Dj Dublee to put this 12 track "story line" together. This is definitely worth your download and the space on your iPod.
