Rant #2: When is the right time to tell the truth? (or Let the rage flow)

* Take note, these observations to some may seem juvenile and obvious. But I'm working shit out.

The truth will set you free. That's sounding more like lies to me these days.
And it's making me increasingly more angry and impatient.

I hear it a lot from women: Tell the truth, be yourself.
But how much of that do I need to be really?
In earlier posts I posted an interview with KRS One. In it he poses the question of how YOU are you willing to be? In that there are consequences (betrayl, hatred, joy, rage). Thus all of us or most of us (depending on who you are) supress a certain amount of ourselves for a greater good. I used to refer to it as wisdom or tact in some cases. But is it?

Case in point:
I'm liking a woman and she wants me to be honest and truthful. I hear that all the time.
"I wish he'd tell me the truth. I wish he'd stop lying"

So I tell the truth. The results, although honest, seem not so well recieved. After the truth, that's when things get held back from conversation, most people don't say everything on their mind out of fear of some judgment, and in the case of relationships, as a man, you could be viewed as a cold hearted bastard.

This stresses me. Mostly because I used to go out of my way to make people feel somewhat comfortable. Now I'm on some kind of mission (as I percieve it) so I don't always have the time for that. People kind of find that offensive or cold. I've been commented on that a lot recently because I look like I don't care when a problem is in front of me or someone needs something. I care, it's just that bitching about it isn't gonna make things easier. Just gotta get it done.

So, I defaulted to the wisdom of my pops. Essentially he said you can be yourself and stand by your convictions and never bend but you might be alone for awhile. Or you can compromise and be mad.

I guess there in lies the science. To know the right time to be unabrasively truthful or stand by your truth. Also to be calm in the face of something that may seem potentially irrational or an attack against your character.

But damn that shit is hard.

Real good KRS interview

KRS One - Life


I slept.
Straight up.

I was rolling with Ghettomanga and we were listening to some random Sirius satelite station. I remember complaining that as diverse as Satelite radio is, the hip hop is still top 10 for the most part...and then I rolled up on a Premier live mix.

We all know Premier is where it's at, but then he dropped a KRS-One track I hadn't heard.

This is when I was reminded why he's the Blast Master.

The track My Life was ill. It's like he either got some young kid with dope production or went back to the lab. Either way the shit is bangin'.

Album dropped back in June, so you might luck out and find it or order it on line, either way, true heads really need to cop it.
This is a true contemporary hip hop album from a real vet to the game.

Lupe Fiasco & Hip Hop (aka YouTube is my surrogate cable)

So I'm about to post this Lupe Fiasco video. I gotta say, I dig this dude. Why some of you may ask (or not)? Well his current vibe is like hip hop back in the day. Leaders of the New School, UMCs, Tribe, and De La. Will this last? I don't know, but I'll enjoy it while it's here. I mean seriously, how many cats do you know these days that will have healthy chicks dancing in the background and put his wife in the video?

Here's hoping the beast doesn't get to you man.
