Reflection Post

The thing I ask myself when reflecting on this course is did I actually like blogging beforehand and I did not. I felt like blogging was a waste of time and I actually did not have any interest in it. To be honest I was not aware that this class would require me to blog […]

J Cole “4 Your Eyes Only” album review

This past weekend J Cole aka Jermaine Cole released his fourth studio album “4 your eyes only”. Before this release he broke the internet by dropping “False Prophets” which some say took shots at Kanye West but I think it’s deeper than that I believe he was talking about rap artist in general and people […]

Have you ever road the train during rush hour and seen people push other people to get on the train its crazy it’s something that I don’t understand. I need a level of understand to why this happens let’s talk about this in this blog post not the pushing of people on the train but the push the rush that this city gives you. I think it’s just a New York City thing where people are always in a rush. In a rush to get to work, to get to school to get home and do nothing but watch their favorite show let’s get real. This city in itself is a push of the weak and soft hearted for those who are gentle and don’t have that killer instinct to survive but just want to be alive and live life. There is no living of life in this city just an existence of something called life. I watched a Facebook video one day it was of an old show from the anonymous Facebook page. The video went like this that we as the residents of the city are the prisoners and also the guards of this city we live in. Now let’s think about that people who were born in New York City always talk about leaving New York City but never do and are in a loop of wanting to leave but having ties that keeps them from leaving. It’s interesting because I suffer from that same syndrome myself. The interesting thing is the city forms a vortex and stops these people from leaving because of ties such as family, friends, significant others and in a sense you cannot leave. Until you are eventually pushed out due to how expensive it is to live in this city. But people will just tell you that you have to just get more money more money and that eventually just turns you into an animal eventually and you lose that sense of basic humanity and stop forming human connections and only value money. That’s its maybe it’s money that destroys all values but becomes the number one value. In that value we lose the sense to what’s right like giving people their space and using common sense to not push others to get on a train so you can go home and value your positions. But these are just the thoughts of a concerned citizen Aka the Akan Blogger.

Okay picture this I am on the train writing my next blog post heading towards the Museum of natural history and I am just jamming to some Kanye West. Then I must stop and think like this man is really in the hospital due to a mental break down like shit man. This man’s music is literally amazing even though it’s different at this point in his career but he is still producing some hits. It just makes you think what has this man been through mentally, physically and spiritually to force him to become hospitalized. It’s tragic in my opinion just listening to the life of Pablo his latest album it’s filled with some hits such as “Famous” which gives you an old-school beat sped up and with Rihanna signing the hook you can catch a vibe from this song especially towards the end. Then we have Real friends which gives you an in depth look of what this artist is going through with family, friends and business associates. Then we have “Ultralight Beams” which gives us a real church vibe and then breaks it back with some dope rap lyrics. We can’t forget “Fade” now fade is something special he isn’t saying much but the beats and the rhythm of the beats makes you want to get up and dance. Last and not least we have “Saint Pablo” now this would be the magna opus of this album by telling his truths on this track and letting it all go how many people can say they could do that on a track. I mean this isn’t a sympathy post for the man but just a post to show this man’s work and before the main streams media tried to crucify him just imagine what he is going threw to be great.
