Discovering an intellectual rapper is like a needle in a haystack nowadays. No one can ever be on the same level as Chicago's own Lupe Fiasco or Brooklyn's Talib Kweli, and even then on a Latin market world it's just unheard of at least here in the US. There are but very few like California's Malverde who dare speak conscience hip-hop but to find a female Latina spitting cultural rhymes?
Ana Tijoux is by far one of the top Latino hip-hop artists I've ever had the pleasure of listening to, easily she can declare the throne of the best female MC over Lauryn Hill. Her 2014 album "Vengo" with such hit's as the self titled "Vengo", "Somos Sur" ft. Palestinian artist Shadia Mansour and "Delta" had me buying the vinyl disc and putting this on the wall! Upon further investigation, Ana is not only Latina but she (along with the rest of us) is a mixture of European descendants - French & Chilean. Hill.
Yesterday I had a chance to see the Chicago Fire play against Ft. Lauderdale Strikers at Toyota Park for the US Open Cup. The stadium was half full with exceptional weather though we were told a week before we would have a storm. Instead the night made way for an amazing evening game. The Strikers had an amazing lineup like Piñeda, PC and Julius but they were no match for Accam and the Fire. During the 2nd half the Strikers played with one less player due to a red card, final outcome 3-0 in favor of the Fire. Overall it was an exceptional night to see the home team and witness one of a handful of victories this year. We also had a chance to see Sean Johnson a few feet away, walking to the VIP room. Hopefully their chemistry within the team continues building up properly to win the Cup and perhaps win a few more games during the rest of this year's season.
Life is peachy sometimes but sometimes life is.. well something else. It's definitely a roller coaster and people can be in your life for a few seasons. We've all had people in our lives one moment and the next moment they're gone. We were born into our families and made friends; we weren't born with them. We were born alone, we will definitely die alone. What matters is what we do with our lives while we are still alive. Life is equal to all whether a believer or not I've had innocent friends reaching for their dreams get killed, I've had people I loved and respected let the world get the best of them. Life is certainly full of surprised and I'm sure this moment is not the end of them. I'm absolutely certain there's good in people all over this world including those I've met and lived with but no matter what I myself need to live as best as I can for the glory of God. Faith, hope and love is what truly makes this world go round, not money, not sex and not power.
Lately I discovered and fell in awe with the music and lyrics of LOGIC, so with respect to his lyrics to his
