understand about the truth pertaining to the music industry. For numerous years, I’ve been on thisEarth, I’ve still got my faith and I will never quit in my life. For thousands of years, music has beena stirring, powerful force in the realm of humanity. There is a real distinction between music that'slegitimate and can uplift the human race (and music that doesn't uplift the modes of humancivilization). The corporatists knew of the profound value of music, so in many cases theyadvance plus fund nihilistic music all of the time. Some people hear it every day. Yet, the goodnews is more young people even desire a reflection in life. This reflection isn't about embracingunjust hatred, but a forthright love of the truth. History is certainly a great, riveting topic todiscussion.
I guess with
me writing all of these words, you (or the viewer)must be curious about
something. I'm a smart man and I'm an intuitiveman. So, I guess you're
thinking is that since I write about all of theseevents, occurrences, etc. then what
types of music do I listen to? Even myrelatives (living in the Richmond area
and Emporia, Virginia) constantly askme what kind music do I listen to? The answer to that question is a journeyand a display of the history into my family's musical tastes.
Back in the day, my parents were Baby Bombers, so they've listened to old soul music like theTemptations, Motown artists, Otis Redding, and other people. They also listened to Gospel musicbeing African Americans like Mahalia Jackson (some people call her the greatest gospel singerpound for pound ever), James Cleveland, the Winans family, etc. My father likes Otis Reddingand Gladys Knight. I've haven't even heard of hip hop music until the late 1980's. This was whenhip hop music grew and became extremely popular in America and the world. In that time fromthe 1980's early 1990's, I was exposed to pop, hip hop, R and B, and Gospel music. I heard ofcountry music before in the early 1990's. In that time, I didn't know that much about rock and rollmusic or heavy metal, because of cultural reasons. It was only one of my older brothers thatloved rock and roll and metal. That was taboo back in that day, because of obviously reasons (Inthe ghetto, few people listened to rock or metal). My older brother listened to Van Halen, LedZeppelin, REM (that took alternative music into another level. The interesting thing is that theirleading singer Michael Stripe collaborated with the rapper KRS-One), etc. I didn’t know of theseartists’ real history until years later. Ironically black people invented rock and roll. All of real blackculture and real music have been co-opted by the elite in order to control culture that the eliteoriginally reviled. For example, the elite back then reviled more conscious hip hop music as beingnot real music and then they or the establishment promoted hip hop on their terms today.
Theestablishment seeks to
devalue real culture in order to cause people tohate themselves and
embrace a more militant, selfish materialist mentality.It is an anti-God
mentality to have self-hatred and lust over material wealthinstead of having
love for your fellow human beings irrespective of whatthey are. So, it's fine
to want to preserve our culture and preserve ouridentity with moral
absolutes. Give back to your own community and helppeople. That's real
talk.So, there is nothing wrong with you existing withyour natural features
and your natural thinking (We should never beashamed of what we are or
what we look like which is God-given
He (or myoldest brother) loved the Beatles and had CDs and books about them. I only knew about theBeatles in a real sense until the late 1990's by looking at documentaries and books. I think myolder brother's eclectic interest in music comes from my mother since my mother loves R and B &Gospel music, but also likes opera and classical music (as my mother could get along with peopleamong different races and backgrounds since she is a people person. That is why she can getalong with people among different backgrounds. A lot of people are known for theircommunication skills. It is what it is. This placed an influence on me since she caused me to getalong with people of different backgrounds too. This influenced me and my other brothers as wellsince we have eclectic tastes and can get along with our own people and people of different
