    Never Ignoring the Original Truth

    As a young teen, I was deeply engrossed in the Kriss Kross, Da Youngsta’s and Born Jamerican era of teenage Hip Hop but I also had a taste for hardcore gangsta rap. I became a fan of Mobb Deep in 1995 when my homie Peter Lebbi played their “Juvenile Hell” album for me. The album was fascinating to me because they were young teenagers, like myself, spitting that ol’ gangsta shit. My favorite song was “Me & My Crew.” Since then, I’ve rocked every Mobb Deep album with my favorites being “Hell on Earth” and “Murda Musik.” Between 1990 and 1993, I was a Naughty By Nature Stan. My homie was a Special Ed-Stan. People called me Treach because I lip synced many of Naughty By Nature’s rhymes.

    When I switched to Tupac in 1995, I lip synced his verses, and those same people started calling me Tupac. They called Peter, Special P or P for short.  I was Freddy Will, but they called me by my favorite emcee’s nickname. At that time they were either Treach or Tupac. Back then, outsiders portrayed Hip Hop as a joke. Considered the Golden Age of Hip Hop, MC Lyte, Dr. Dre, L. L. Cool J, Tupac Shakur, Snoop Dogg, Da Brat, Wu-Tang Clan, Coolio, Tha Luniz, Scarface, The Notorious Big, Lil Kim, Foxy Brown and Nas were the top artists in mainstream Hip Hop in 1995.

    That decade saw droves of rappers and emcees step to the mic to deliver some dope rhymes. Some of those lyricists were so talented, their lyrics became scripts for us as we pondered on the themes of love, wealth, and spirituality. Our generation dealt with drug trafficking, homicide, poverty, one parent homes, homelessness, neglect, racism and police brutality. We got into the cinema and theater with poetry, art, and fashion.

    During this era when hundreds of emcees came to tell our grim stories of a ghetto, hood, project, or street struggles, Mobb Deep returned with, “The Infamous…” This album gave us timeless anthems like “Start of Ya Ending” “Shook Ones Pt. II” and “Survival of the Fittest” among other hits. Mobb Deep rose to 5 best emcees status. Unfortunately, there was a coast to coast beef between the east and west. A publicized Tupac shooting took place in New York City. Death Row Records CEO, Suge Knight bailed Tupac out of jail and signed him to the record label.

    Fresh out of jail, and out on bail, with The Notorious B. I. G. and Bad Boy Records topping the charts. Tupac blamed them for his previous shooting and dragged Jay-Z, Lil, Kim, Nas and Mobb Deep into the beef. Tragically, someone killed Shakur in a Las Vegas drive-by shooting. Months later, the legendary master of ceremonies, The Notorious BIG was murdered in Los Angeles. During this sad time in Hip Hop, Mobb Deep won the hearts of many with their “Hell on Earth” album. By the time they released “Murda Musik,” the duo had elevated to a god-like status in Hip Hop. Some say they’re a centerpiece of our Kulture. Others say they’re the Kulture. Mobb Deep defined the sound of east coast rap.*

    What is a straight man of high value? These are men who have no aim of being a babysitter, sperm donor, free attention giver, in an ephemeral relationship. We look for women who want to marry us, take our last name, and raise a traditional family. It is my opinion that many of today’s women enter into the dating scene with the wrong mentality, and that is why they end up on their own. A high-value man will spot your self-centered egotism and lose some interest.

    What is a continuous process where one person systematically diminishes the other’s internal consciousness? That is emotional abuse – the mania of the abuser on the condition of the abused. That obsessive preoccupation may persist throughout their cohabitation. When people have a disciplined conversation, they watch for statistics and findings from various credible studies. Sometimes I find that problematic, as we now have biased investors, researchers, analysts, or scientists who determine the results they want before starting a study.

What king puts a ring on it, holds it down for twenty-something years, and then provides some kid with permission to smash his queen? I do not believe that for one second. The absurd part is Jada had already caused this havoc when she was calling Snoop Dogg out for checking Gayle King. After all that talk, Gayle, and Jada have not apologized to the public for what they did. That’s wrong.
