Respect The Architects…

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

I should apologize for waiting until the end of Women’s History Month to bless y’all with this gem. E.S.G., short for Emerald, Sapphire and Gold was an all girl band out of the South Bronx who would be influential in several musical genres and generations. Their music was powered by funk and driven with punk.

E.S.G. was the jazzy disco apocalypse. Their groove wasn’t canned and their funk was unchained. I’m a big fan of the Go-Gos and the Bangles but E.S.G.has the womb from where those bands were birthed. Rap music would also owe a debt of samplitude to these funky sisters from the South Bronx.

Just try and imagine the scene while UFO plays over massive speakers and B-boys break the night away.

Thank you E.S.G.

A Song For The Genius Child…

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

This is a song for the genius child.
Sing it softly, for the song is wild.
Sing it softly as ever you can –
Lest the song get out of hand.

Nobody loves a genius child.

Can you love an eagle,
Tame or wild?
Can you love an eagle,
Wild or tame?
Can you love a monster
Of frightening name?

Nobody loves a genius child.

Kill him – and let his soul run wild.
Langston Hughes

Reebok just laced me with some kicks from my personal legacy archive. The Ex-O-Fit was THAT Brooklyn sneaker from 1985-1987. This was before Nike had the visible air bubble. These shoes were my Latin Quarters dance boots.

Stay logged on to the end with this video and you might come up on some FREE kicks thanks to Reebok and the prA’li movement.
