Open Your Eyes America!

As the higher powers in our government continue there endeavor toward superiority amongst all nations, the average American continues to think 'Do I trust My Government? It's easy to find yourself saying NO in quite a sarcastic tone. As History has shown us time and time again the government has always steered toward having the leading roll in a series of infamous conspiracy's. The sad part is that the majority of these conspiracy's dealt with public figures in our own Country, from the assassination of United States President John F. Kennedy, down to the Water Gate Scandal that led to former President Nixon to resign back in 1974. What has this proven to us as average individuals? I'll tell you, NO ONE IS TO BE TRUSTED!

Another sad story dealing with another famous public figure was the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr which dealt with the leading suspect in hand James Earl Ray, who was listed as the initial murderer. Although there was countless circumstantial evidence against Ray, he noted that a man named "Raoul" was the initial suspect who gave him the weapon in question that killed Dr.King in that Memphis Hotel Balcony on April 3, 1968. One theory speculating around Ray was that he was put into a Hypnosis by top notch members of the CIA who deliberately made sure he would forget everything after the shots were fired. When Ray was studied by the Jury during his trial it was noted that a man of his caliber could not orchestrate a murder of this degree.

The day before Dr. King arrived in Memphis, someone claiming to be an advance security man dropped by the Lorraine Hotel and changed Dr. King’s reservation from a ground-floor room to a second-floor balcony room; none of Dr. King’s associates were aware of an "advance man," and his description did not match any of King’s friends or associates. In addition to this the rifle said to have been used to kill Dr. Martin Luther King Jr was never properly tested through ballistics to see if it was in fact the weapon used in the assassination! This only shows the lack of integrity the American Government upholds, and how far they are willing to go to silence the truth. This country promises equality amongst all Americans and the endless pursuit of happiness which is nothing but a footnote on the biggest lie ever written in our nations history which is The Deceleration of Independence. DON'T BE FOOLED!

This is nothing more than an eye opener for the younger generation who becomes more and more oblivious to the fact that our country is run by Crooks and Scandals. This country will let you get so far before they silence you..It's Fucking sad I tell you!

I found myself getting Sauced listening to E.L.I.T.E on Tuesday, more specifically to his sophomore mixtape The Hangover which he released back in October in collaboration with White Night Entertainment. The intro is quite captivating as Dj Ill Will preps up the listeners for an entertaining piece of music. The mixtape holds a variety of flows in addition to an ensemble of brash beats which were well chosen for his second tape. A few tracks such as his remake of "Lose Yourself" by Eminem and Kanye West "Power" record were great features and true to the initial context expected, you sprisingly find yourself relating with E.L.I.T.E the more you tune in. One track I found myself repeating was "Tunnel Vision" which was a rendition of Techno and Hip Hop in one setting, it was well put together and stood out as a classic. The beat for that track was provided by producer Analog Fire, who also produced two other beats on the mixtape and featured vocally on the record Byrds as well.

Last Laugh was an amusing and real laid back record, so was the follow up record featuring Lower East Side affiliate Profecy who is quite close to E.L.I.T.E and is a proud supporter of all his endeavors. As the mixtape persisted I found myself running back a few songs more than once, one of those songs was "Lighters Up" a smoke friendly song that easily catches the attention of any chronic smoker. The setting for the album is definitely chill, which makes it understandable as to why its called The Hangover. Another great record was "The Paper" a witty track about money produced by B-Boy Berto, who used a Biggie Smalls sample from the classic record "Things Done Changed" the record also held a feature by Rapper Bully.

The best thing I found on the entire basis of the mixtape was that every record held a purpose, and allowed the listener to relate to E.L.I.T.E. in one way or another. A song that made that clear was "Music To My Ears" which was a true to the mill song about Haters and their never ending pursuit to deface the image of someone trying to remain positive. The majority of the songs on the mixtape are party worthy, meaning they can be played before and after The Hangover which is always a good sign. The realities of life are often too hard to word but E.L.I.T.E. manages to take all the aspects of his life from the good to the bad to the ugly and deliver it in the form of a story. Each record consecutively sets up the following record, easily allowing you to hear the entire mixtape without skipping anything. The Title track was a great way to end the tape and keep the listeners Saucy and ready for The Hangover to follow the liqour. (LMAO)

Do The Right Thing: The Book

With about 20 years since its memorable debut, Do The Right Thing remains an important and inspirational film to so many due to its fundamental value dealing with everyday issues such as race and interracial relationships. The film took place in Spike Lee's Brooklyn hometown which set the theme for the movie. The movie became a instant success due to its critical and popular message's and situations. Do The Right Thing became a landmark film that brought serious issues in the African American community to light and established Lee as a major director in American cinema. Spike also wrote the screenplay, produced, and even starred in the movie to give it the personal touch it deserved in order to grab the viewers attention and connect with the audience more clearly to expose these everyday situations.

Even the soundtrack the movie provided was quite influential with Public Enemies "Fight The Power" as its signature record for the movie. The book provides a behind the scene look at the movie in addition to visuals and interviews never seen before. The book is an omage to the years we have all faced together and the road taken to bettet ourselves as individuals. The movie has made an impact in American society and has even been credited toward bringing President Barack Obama and the First Lady together on their first date.

Heavy DOe

It's easy to get addicted to something you familiarize yourself with, its even easier to get others addicted to something you truly believe in. Artist Heavy Doe often characterizes his music as an addiction of sorts, leaving a lasting impression on his listeners. Raised in Washington Heights, New York Heavy found himself involved in the Rap scene at the early age of nine When he first heard a glimpse of Biggie's "Give me the loot" from then on he became an avid Hip Hop fan. By the age of fifteen he gradually began writing his first written raps which were influenced by the movement Hip Hop was generating at the time in addition to the sway by his peers to do rap music.

Throughout the years he collectively grew his fan base learning to remain outside the box and make his music to his taste and comfort. From the inspiration 4:20 brings, Heavy finds motivation in speaking about his day to day and trying out new directions in music. Heavy recently dropped a song called "Purple Sprite" which spoke for itself. His style is unlike most other artist, he brings a calm and collective attitude to the table easily hypnotizing his listeners to some real good music. The Bigger Picture is always seen clearly through his eyes, the efforts he's made to progress in the game continue to grow as well as his musical library which runs about three years deep, proving great music is timeless.

Everyday surroundings are embedded in Heavy's personality, it doesn't with his humble humorous self. but his mindset is global, he's been traveling over seas since he was younger visiting places like Belgium, Spain, and Germany. He's had the opportunity to witness the Amsterdam lifestyle at a young age staying with his father and his brothers at two different occasions in his life. Heavy is currently working on a mixtape with Cato Williams who's a professional Skateboarder, who runs his own Skate shop in Downtown Los Angels called SK8CAFE.

Traveling the world has taught Heavy that life is precious and every day has its worth. Given the opportunity he plans on building Health Organizations in his country Which is The Dominican Republic, who are in dire need of medical attention. Making it in the music business is his hardest mission, even though the music is dope and honest to his fans. His Debut mixtape titled "STR8 DOe No Change" will strike the beginning of what's soon to be a new era of music. The playlist on his Ipod is often just His own Music or beats, which he sorts through constantly trying to explore new sounds and good vibes. "sometimes your voice might be the missing "instrument" on the beat this is something Heavy goes by trying to reach the world one person at a time.
