Escaping The Suburbs
Hip Hop, even in its degraded state, is still the most powerful and influential music genre of all time. Don't believe me? If you were able to sit in front of your TV over a 24-hour period, there's a good chance that at you'll hear hip-hop being used in commercials, TV shows, movies, video games, political events, news broadcasts, etc...etc. Various media outlets have already declared hip-hop's dethroning of rock-n-roll in a plethora of news articles. In reality, hip-hop had already knocked rock-n-roll off its pedestal at least two decades ago. However, the powers-that-be most likely kept this tidbit of information on the low simply because they didn't want the righteous downtrodden to have the illusion of elevating themselves through hip-hop. When the general masses initially decided to embrace and harness the power of hip-hop during the mid-1980s, there were dozens of artists and groups that produced legendary and timeless music. Hip-Hop's first wave of successful mainstream artists were at the height of their fame and popularity during the "Golden Era". The typical hip-hop historians proclaim that this era stretched from 1988-1994. The more seasoned hip-hop aficionados believe that you could technically push the beginning of the era back to 1986 when you had the emergence of Hall-of-Fame worthy groups such as Eric B. and Rakim, RUN-DMC, Stetsasonic, 2 Live Crew, DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince and Salt-N-Pepa.
One of my personal favorite hip-hop groups, A Tribe Called Quest) also flourished during this magical period. ATCQ, who consisted of Q-Tip, Phife, Ali Shaheed Muhammed, and Jarobi. ATCQ shook up the hip-hop world with their eternal classic album "People's Instinctive Travels and The Paths of Rhythm." It was the perfect blend of traditional New York boom-bap production, superb lyrics, fantastic storytelling and a subtle infusion of jazz. Their next two albums, "The Low End Theory" and "Midnight Marauders" are the stuff off Hip-Hop legend. ATCQ was a part of the Native Tongues, a hip-hop collective which also included De La Soul (another personal favorite), The Jungle Brothers, Queen Latifah, and Monie Love. The Native Tongues focused on making positive music that not only stimulated the ears, but also the mind, body and spirit. The Native Tongues weren't as pro-black or socially dynamic as Public Enemy, N.W.A., or Brand Nubian. However, their music still emphasized the importance of self-pride, social unity, family, and Afrocentric ideals. ATCQ took the Native Tongue's mantra to the next level when they rapped about the shadiness of the music industry and other social ills. ATCQ took a lengthy 18-year hiatus after the release of their "The Love Movement" album back in 1998. Many hip-hop fans feared that this would be their last album. Then in 2016, ATCQ suddenly decided to end their musical sabbatical and dropped "We Got It From Here: Thank You For Your Service." This album is a brilliant combination of high-energy beats, classic ATCQ lyricism, and brutally honest commentary on current events. One of these events that ATCQ shed an intense spotlight on was gentrification.
In their song “We The People”, ATCQ rapped about how gentrification was expelling blacks out of NYC, along with other “minorities” and so-called undesirable groups in order to make room for white residents. A lot of people have been wondering why white people would move back into urban areas after decades of fleeing out to the suburbs? It’s not like the cost of the real estate is going to be dirt cheap in these areas. A good majority of these brand-new condos that you’ll in NYC, DC, or Miami costs the same as a Lamborghini. Do you seriously believe that all these white suburbanites who are gentrifying these areas have the coin to shell out for all this overpriced real estate? In this shitty economy? Nah, I didn’t think so either. So why are the demographics of these inner cities suddenly turning lily white? Well, I’ve heard of a few theories over the years. The official explanation from the MSM is that white hipsters are moving back into the “hoods” because they’re taking advantage of cheap real estate and want shorter commutes to work. This sounds logical on the surface, but in reality the true reason for their return is more metaphysical than financial. Here’s why: As I’ve stated in my COINTELPRO article, the war on Black America is the only thing that is keeping the United States afloat.
Billions of dollars are made off the racial discrimination and exploitation of the African-American community every year. From a karmic perspective, the debt to Black America is so massive that the U.S. government is literally collapsing under it’s weight. This debt does not include the $300 trillion dollar that’s owed to the International Banking Cabal that’s masquerading as the Federal Reserve, but I’ll discuss this incredibly suppressed fact on another article. When you look at the horrific trails that black people a.k.a. the real Native Americans had to endure for the past 500 plus years in America, it’s only a matter of time before their ancestors begin to extract their revenge from the spirit world. Some people who exclusively dabble into the occult or esoteric knowledge believe that this karmic comeuppance is already underway. Do you want proof? Look at all the natural disasters that hammer the United States EVERY YEAR. Where do the majority hurricanes hit? They hit the American South, the area that profited from slavery. Where are all the tornado alley hot spots? The Midwest. We all know what happened there (The slaughtering of Native Americans and outright theft of their lands). The so-called elites are certainly aware of the karmic bill that must be paid. Which is why they conveniently engineered a way for white suburbanites to gentrify urban areas. They believe that by moving white hipsters in urban areas, they can postpone the inevitable. An antelope may occasionally get lucky and dodge the jaws of a lion on the savanna. However, it’s an absolute certainty that it will be devoured by something.
