Ain’t no such thing as “Just Music.” by Diallo Kenyatta @DialloKenyatta #DialloKenyatta

Ain’t no such thing as “Just Music.”

Music is one of the most powerful cultural, economic, & political forces that humans have invented.

Every single significant Historical Epoch, Ideological Framework, & Mass Movement is inspired, spread, advanced, & sustained by Music!🎺

Both Oppressive & Liberation ideologies have their own musical genres & catalogs.

There is Imperialist Music, Nazi Music, Colonizer Music, Capitalist Music, Christian Music, Fascist Music, White Supremacy Music.

There is Black Power Music, Decolonization Music, Pan-African, Civil Rights Music, Socialist Music, Women’s Liberation Music.

All Music is advocating for or representing a World View & Social Theory, especially the Music that presents itself as apolitical or Pop Music.

So if you believe that Music is Just Music & a Song is Just a Song you are politically & historically illiterate, & you need to Cultivate your critical thinking & media analysis skills.

Building on this understanding, the Black Community must come to terms with the fact that the most popular & successful Black performers & Music are what Del Jones termed “Anti-African Propaganda.” They are subversive to the interest & advancement of the Black Community.

Please make a conscious effort to produce, promote, & elevate Revolutionary, Pan-African Music & Artist.

Support: Catalyst: Duro Wicks & Chicago Hip Hop is an independent documentary film about how Duro “Shame Love Tempo” Wicks fell in love with Hip Hop – Donate on KickStarter #durowicks

Catalyst: Duro Wicks & Chicago Hip Hop is an independent documentary film about how Duro “Shame Love Tempo” Wicks fell in love with Hip Hop and helped give it a home on the Chicago music scene of the early 1990’s. It examines what made Hip Hop blow up in Chicago so much later than in other cities, how a tiny 100 watt college station became Chicago’s Hip Hop radio powerhouse, why it was so difficult for a young Black entrepreneur to get a party started, and a time when social, political and economic conditions ultimately proved to make Duro’s dream unsustainable, even though it was more successful than anyone ever imagined it could be.

The Chicago Reader called Duro Wicks “one of the godfathers of the Wicker Park hip hop scene.” The Chicago Tribune called him “a large man with a charismatic presence… at the center of the kinetic circus.” Duro describes himself as “The Catalyst” when talking about how he created a place for a generation of kids to show up and prove. “Before I did my own thing, I had nowhere to go,” says Duro “so my whole thing was let’s do our own shows.” Duro fell in love with hip hop long before it was easily accessible in Chicago, so he wanted to create a place for people with similar passions to gather. After several false starts, he finally got some traction running the first weekly Hip Hop open mic night in the city at a basement club called The Lower Links. It brought in hundreds of kids every week from all over the city and suburbs, which was unheard of in the segregated Chicago of early ’90’s. After a brief, but wildly popular run, the club ended up being a victim of its own success when neighbors and other business owners in Wrigleyville, unhappy with the growing number of Black kids hanging out in the street every week, took action and got the club shut down.

So the preview was so amazing. Thx to everyone that joined us virtually. Now it’s time for the perculater! Our kickstarter is on line.

Chicago Art: Englewood Artist Documents Growing Up on the South Side By @pugzatomz @wttw #chicago @pbs

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on October 20, 2021 by Brother Perspective Magazine

In his first solo show, “Mookie on the Southside,” artist Pugs Atomz illustrates what it’s like growing up on the South Side through paintings and sculptures. #ChicagoTonightWTTW #WTTWNews

#repost

As concerns remain about the Obama Presidential Center potentially displacing South Siders, an Englewood artist is making sure the neighborhood remains intact even if it’s just through the documentation of memories.  

Artist Pugs Atomz’s first solo show pays tribute to growing up on the South Side and is on display at Connect Gallery in Hyde Park.

“When you first walk in to the exhibit, it’s like a small homage to Dr. Wax, which was an institutional record store for independent artists because the people there would tell you what you needed to buy,” said Atomz.

Promontory Point. An old bus card. A mini arcade. These are just a few of the items visitors see when entering “Mookie on the Southside.”

“‘Mookie on the South Side’ is a love letter to the South Side. Talking about what did we wear, where did we go, what did we read, who did we talk to,” Atomz said. “If you look at the imagery, you understand what the South Side is. … (People) instantly connect and get this feeling of warmth. That’s why I said it’s a love letter type thing of what it felt and feels like. The togetherness and unity of it.” more –

This music will raise self esteem and show love of self and kind!  We live in they bubble, we are the machine, we produce cotton and cook the seeds. We are the work they are the disease, build your immune system and stay clear of what detours living. We are not animals; we are not your entertainment. We only overthrow corruption, we will never submit. Don’t accept a suffering that leads you through a robot machine. When you are living and breathing it is your responsibility to think for yourself. Don’t be programmed by a parasites forced confusion, think! Black people must destroy everything that is not beneficial to them and create what is needed to survive. Your colonial oppressor can’t be your judge and jury; their laws will always be biased in their favor. This is the stereo communication from Infinito 2017 presented in the original compositions of Analysis of Fictional Science Trust No Microwave Made Conditioning with the pounding production from Life Line Eternal. This music will raise self esteem and show love of self and kind!

Lost Cargo 4 is a fantastic voyage of our kinships and our traditions that help define our tribal distinction in society. We as creators of Hip Hop work collectively to map out our destination for our paths. It is important to understand, relate and communicate what we can combine for survival on this planet. Through Hip-Hop culture we construct different concepts of sound, dance, artistry and conversations, these evaluations educate generations to come with our translations of time. So yes, yes yall, Let the B boy’s rock and the Dj’s cut as we convey the beautiful narratives of stolen ghetto children liberated through Congolese talking drum vibrations. Party people please enter peacefully and enjoy the rhythms of Lost Cargo 4 featuring a variety of story tellers and sound providers. This Album features performances by Abeatchemist, Neak, K the I, Joy Selah, Andreaus Haley, Sun Rahim, A.M.
