"My job as an artist is to take all my thoughts and feelings and put them on your iPod so that you can digest them. Whatever it is that brings you comfort and joy as a mode of resistance, do it. If it's music, that's what I do, that's my mode of resistance, I refuse for the world to steal my joy. If it's church, go to church, if it's working with kids, work with kids, but do something positive in your community that's going to lift you up." - Lalah Hathaway @lalahhathaway ("Lalah Hathaway Discusses New Album, Tour, and Her Father, the Late Donny Hathaway" by Brittany K.

This was the tag from my tea bag from Monday. Caught me for a few minutes. There is truth in the quote, but I don't know how I feel about it yet. Maybe it's the notion of wilderness juxtaposed against pain--both are undesirable, but are presented as opposites. Looking forward to getting to a place of acceptance where I can agree. #thursday #thoughtlifethursday #onethornofexperience #isworthawholewildernessofwarning #wilderness #wildernesstheory #experience #wisdom #itwasgoodthatiwasafflicted #thatyouwouldrevealyourpriorities #evenwhenidontunderstand #losangeles #la #cityofangels #culturecultivator #music #art #film #musician #vocalist #writer #producer #jazzmusic #claudiajazzalexander #tbt #throwback #throwbackthursday #jazzovereverything #lovesupreme

I have always grown my own scobys; however, since moving to NYC I have yet to pull an acceptable batch. My methods havenโ€™t changed so I think I may just be losing my sensibility! Iโ€™ve finally decided to purchase a starter in hopes of getting my home brew game back up. Any one else ever experience anything like this? Guidance would be appreciated! #kombuchabrewing #homebrew #scoby #culturecultivator

"Basquiat made frequent references in his work to the musicians he most admired. He paid homage to Parker, whose nickname was Bird, in paintings such as 'Bird on Money,' 'Charles the First' and 'CPRKR.' Basquiat, who died of a drug overdose at 27, attained dizzying heights during his short career. His first sale, the painting 'Cadillac Moon,' was to Debbie Harry, the frontwoman of Blondie, in 1981. She paid $200. 
Within months, his works were selling for tens of thousands of dollars. By his early 20s, he had made his first million. Yet Basquiat was discomforted by success. He was acutely conscious of his place as one of very few African-Americans in a predominantly white art world, where he was regarded by some as little more than an interloper.

The American art critic Hilton Kramer once described Basquiat as 'a talentless hustler, street-smart but otherwise invincibly ignorant, who used his youth, his looks, his skin color and his abundant sex appeal' to win fame. According to Ms. Nairne (co-curator of โ€œBoom for Realโ€) Basquiat was 'hugely, uncomfortably, constantly aware of the racist ways he was constantly being pigeonholed.' And he found a telling parallel between his position and that of his jazz heroes. 'These are musicians who are, in one sphere of their lives, incredibly celebrated,' Ms. Nairne said. 'And in other aspects, on a daily basis and in the most banal terms, consistently reduced to the color of their skins--Thereโ€™s no way you can divorce their music from their treatment in society. There was a lot of identification in there.'" (Excerpt + Photography from "Bowie, Bach and Bebop: How Music Powered Basquiat" by Ekow Eshun, NYT) // "They teach you there's a boundary line to music. But, man, there's no boundary line to art." - Charlie Parker // Bird Lives...

Out of all the dumb shit I've done in my life I could write about it in a million ways. But I prefer to let my creativity lead over validation. Cause basically if all I spoke on was street shit, that's all I'm in search of. Acceptance! So with that being said, I'd like to extend a sincere ๐Ÿ–• you to anyone that questions me in any way. Instead of leading with negativity, I came out the gate with positivity. Of course musically I've made some nice urban ballads. That's because I love to mix things up. But ultimately I'm going to do what feels good to me. Don't expect for me to do anything other than what I'm familiar with. Oh yeah, ๐Ÿ–• ya(they know who they are) once again.๐Ÿ๐Ÿ†™ #facts #realhiphop #realshit #hiphop #hiphopmusic #culture #creative #fortheculture #culturecultivator #visionary

One day I was staring at my kids thinking about my legacy. I thought about everything they'd be doing while I'm not around. Of course everyone of them are doing great in school. I instill a sense of determination inside of them. An I also remind them that nothing makes one person superior to the next. The reason Malaysia (my oldest daughter) defends the defenseless at school. But it's a wonderful feeling when you have been blessed with a gift that will allow your family to hear you as much as they feel the need to in your passing. All the more reason for me to proceed with my awesome creations. Thank you all for the encouragement.

I'll go down in history as someone who spoke up when the room was silent. Respected by some of the most feared and powerful people in the world.

We all have our own agendas. Mine is transparent and crystal clear. Sometimes I'm with the shits(all fun. No harm, no foul). Other times I'm occupied with what's occurring around the world. Just like prodigy spoke. You gotta leave hidden gems in your music. Whether methodically or obvious. It awakens something in the listener when they're able to decipher truth; causing them to wanna research more.

"Got to wake up and tell yourself
There's no end to what you can do;
They'll waste your body and soul,
If you allow them to.

This is the time,
To start believing in yourself;
Put the blame on no one else.

We're Hungry but we won't give in--
Hungry but we won't give in;
Hungry but we won't give in
Hungry but we won't give in."
