I’m trying to figure out where to start with all this, I have a grand idea that spans back to the beginning of time I’m guessing, I am going to stick to more recent happenings…like the great George Carlin stated above, every once in a while, an individual comes along with a truly special ability. The ability to destroy the barriers that we as humans have constructed around us, and reach our brains on a truly transcendental level. This means that no matter how different we all may be, how differently we live our lives, our race, our background, our sex, our upbringing, we can all connect with an idea. Planted by a great speaker, a great musician, a composer, an artist, a comedian. Someone that can lift you out of your everyday existence allow you to see the beauty and truth in life. That said, I am a conspiracy critic, so let’s get to the meat of what I’m trying to say here….let’s start with comedians that went before their time..
Freddie Prinz, a rising comedic star, just had a baby and was starring in a hit sitcom by the age of 22…look at him ^^ he looks genuinely happy…gets interested in the Kennedy assassination after seeing the Zapruder film on Geraldo’s show. Starting getting involved and incorporating aspects of it in his stand up act…on top of the world, has it all, yet commits suicide? Coincidence? Fishy? John Belushi next, tv and movie star at the top of his game, also became very involved and started asking questions, also heavily involved in the whole Laurel Canyon sex and drug scene…did he figure it out? Was he about to expose some serious goings on there?
John Candy…who acted in Oliver Stone’s JFK, where he played the New Orleans lawyer of David Ferrie, Dean Andrews. The part had him interested in the assassination big time…it would be his last role
Bill Hicks, Andy Kaufman, Mitch Hedberg, Chris Farley, Patrice O’Neal, Phil Hartman, Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor…All of them, a new breed of cutting edge comics that require people to actually think and open their eyes to all the fucked up shit going on around us….comparing the laundry list of dead comedians to those that were huge and just stopped for no reason…Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence, Dave Chapelle, Jim Carrey, Andrew “Dice” Clay, Chris Tucker, Pee Wee Herman…Sure they all ended up doing movies, but at the top of their game, just give up the one love that got you there? Or were they getting too big? Too powerful in their messages and what they were saying? Were they warned off and listened, while others did not? Quite possible…
Parallel to that, we have the music industry…Some famous names that were getting a little too powerful with their fame and messages to the people include of course
Kurt Cobain, Jerry Garcia, Tupac, just to name a few, and in both of these industries, it’s easy to infiltrate with drugs, women, money hungry bandmates. I believe Eminem was scared off for a awhile. Remember when he first came out, how insanely popular and influential he was? Talking all that shit about Bill Clinton and George Bush? He was fun, crazy, the first of his kind…The suburban white kids wet dream…A talented white rapper that came from shit who could truly change the game and influence countless millions of kids who were lapping it up. His best friend Proof was shot while playing pool, Eminem quits rapping, moves to just producing, gets depressed, hits the pills, and comes back sober and out of his funk with the frame of mind to start rapping again. Instead of gritty, edgy social commentary mixed with beats, we get songs about “shaking that ass on the floor” and silly non threatening nonsense.
As for Tupac, he was only 25 when he died, he had already accomplished so much, been through so much, lived through so much…I think he was a very smart and dangerous man…a huge inspiration to black youth worldwide…his lyrics and poetry were of a mind far beyond his years….a reflection of growing restlessness of America’s youth…both black and white. So was he taken out by the government? Or a victim of a contrived “East Coast/West Coast” beef? Did he, while in jail, see the big picture? Did he realize the only way out was to fake his own death? He recorded enough new music to still have albums coming out 15 years after his death, the money still keeps coming in..
“I see no changes. All I see is racist faces.
Misplaced hate makes disgrace to races we under.
I wonder what it takes to make this one better place…
let’s erase the wasted.
Take the evil out the people, they’ll be acting right.
‘Cause both black and white are smokin’ crack tonight.
And only time we chill is when we kill each other.
It takes skill to be real, time to heal each other.
And although it seems heaven sent,
we ain’t ready to see a black President, uhh.
It ain’t a secret don’t conceal the fact…
the penitentiary’s packed, and it’s filled with blacks.
But some things will never change.
Try to show another way, but they stayin’ in the dope game.
Now tell me what’s a mother to do?
Bein’ real don’t appeal to the brother in you.
You gotta operate the easy way.
“I made a G today” But you made it in a sleazy way.
Sellin’ crack to the kids. “I gotta get paid,”
Well hey, well that’s the way it is.
We gotta make a change…
It’s time for us as a people to start makin’ some changes.
Let’s change the way we eat, let’s change the way we live
and let’s change the way we treat each other.
You see the old way wasn’t working so it’s on us to do
what we gotta do, to survive.
And still I see no changes. Can’t a brother get a little peace?
There’s war on the streets and the war in the Middle East.
Instead of war on poverty,
they got a war on drugs so the police can bother me.
And I ain’t never did a crime I ain’t have to do.
But now I’m back with the facts givin’ ’em back to you.
Don’t let ’em jack you up, back you up, crack you up and pimp smack you up.
You gotta learn to hold ya own.
They get jealous when they see ya with ya mobile phone.
But tell the cops they can’t touch this.
I don’t trust this, when they try to rush I bust this.
That’s the sound of my tool. You say it ain’t cool, but mama didn’t raise no fool.
And as long as I stay black, I gotta stay strapped and I never get to lay back.
‘Cause I always got to worry ’bout the payback.
Some buck that I roughed up way back… comin’ back after all these years.
Rat-a-tat-tat-tat-tat. That’s the way it is. uhh
Shortly after he and Biggie’s death, we entered the era of Disney bubblegum pop with cute kids and meaningless lyrics…The Backstreet Boys and NSync and Brittany Spears…and while the names may have changed, the faves are still the same…only now its Bieber, Selena Gomez, and One Direction…this is the crap our kids are inundated with…its not a coincidence…can you think of one famous musical act today that has a social conscious and a real message? Any coincidence that “MUSIC” televison doesn’t play music any more? If you want music nowadays, you go to the corporate controlled media (radio) and listen to the “hits” either that or you have to pay to listen to the music you want…its not a coincidence…Tupac had the ability to be the black John Lennon and Ghandi rolled into one. The question me and others have…. What if while in prison he concocted a plan to fake his own death? He had already been shot up twice, served time for sexual assault, had numerous other charges pending, he had Suge Knight breathing down his neck, everybody wanted a piece of Pac…what if he was smart enough to realize that death would truly be the only way out. Is he still alive? Many believe so…
He ’s been reported to be in Cuba, Jerusalem, Tasmania, Brazil, Africa, Philly….Chillin with Bin Laden…hahahaha…
But seriously there are videos of Tupac supposedly after he died… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sG5KrQBOtAM&feature=youtube_gdata_player
