Happy Friday ALL!!!! Despite what the News says of Course, , but you ALL know what is UP. And I LOVE YOU for that!
Alls I will say is that this involves another One of My Favorite People On (or Off) The Planet, also a Fierce Dreamer since I met her when she was around 8….and while OG status is quite the Honor, She has G Status. Love You Much, and I AM so effin proud.
The week kicked off hanging out with some Folks at this Live Music spot in Bk, from a place that sounds a lot like Queens recently, riding the energy Wave of that awesome night in Long Island City.
So much like Queens so that I am in no way shape or form claiming to be from there, lol, having never even visited, or know a fraction of the underground music that came from there, lol. Just sending it Love and Respect for it’s Role in a recent Awakening, and of Course the Music that is Such….you ALL know about that, lol. For the Music They are Currently Creating, and Have Been for Quite Some Time .
(For the Shit They Did to that City and that Area. Really? The Auto Industry, and That Water, on top of everything else? TO AMERICANS? US? FOH!!!! – see L7 Tune Below, ).
Just as much for The Real Ones Over There, and How their Philosophy, Across ALL genres, of Putting On and Elevating Your Friends, Fam, and City in a Super Competitive (on the Surface) Field and Tough Place says a Lot about who they are as People. Very Powerful, Universal, and QB ish, . Their Music Says more than I can and will.
Thanks. It is pretty simple, but definitely not Easy to make the Universal Playlist, lol, there ‘s Some Great Shit There, and the D is well Represented. There have not been too many newer additions lately, as the Playlist is Solid and True, and Works. So I Thought.
Not all that great with words these days (besides just Being, hilarious Dental Surgery Story, which is a part of why I am just Being. Yeah, So Some Flower Children became Dental Surgeons in Queens apparently. Who Are you Dude?. And one thing you are not supposed to do is laugh. Great. Good luck with that hanging around Michelle P. ).
Detroit Has a LOT to Say, always has, and WLUV is Forever Grateful. And The HEART in that City? Damn. New Playlist Additions from this Small but Powerful Sample of a Great American City Close the Set. One Love Detroit and ALL. Some real mofos out there. Pump it Up!!!!
