I heard the voice of God…

It told me something that has changed my life.

I recently just fasted for the first time in my life, for three days. The first day was strictly water and no food. The second day I allowed myself to have some much needed fruit. The third day I went back to strictly water until later that evening when I began eating again. My goal was to receive guidance from god and it worked.

Physically I felt hollow for three days, and you don't really understand how much you crave food until you deny yourself the pleasure of eating. Anyway, during this process god told me "If you are afraid, I can't help you." As result I have stopped letting fear stop me from acting.

I usually don't talk this openly about my relationship with god. I thought I had to have complete understanding to bring the subject up, like I have to prove the existence of god when I questioned it at times. I've decided that is not my job and I just need to do as I am called to do. If I'm afraid and don't act, god can't make away for me.

Life changing

The Beat-a-week was down last week. I do apologize. I did put the beat online last week but the player wasn't working. So you have two to check out this week.

For this week "Uh Oh" a track that reminds me of Janet Jackson's Velvet Rope Cd.

Last Week "Get Up" chill laid back joint similar to "Me & U" by cassie from the bad boy camp.

More developments on the way so go to to join my email list. I am going to be recording another piece for a PayWhatChaLike mp3 download. All the supporters on the email list will have access to these no minimum price downloads. Click here to join

Reggie Miller vs. PDX Hip Hop

Reggie Miller, one of the greatest basketball players without a ring. I remember one playoff game, I don't which team he was playing so I'll say they Knicks for the purpose of this story. New York was up by two baskets something like 5 points and 30 seconds left on the clock. The pacers are in a full court press trying to make something happen.

They are on the Knicks home court and the feeling was that the Knicks had it all wrapped up. Until, Reggie Miller gets a steal on the inbound pass, steps back bust a three. Lead is now two, 12 or so seconds remain in the game. Through a series of missed free throws by the Knicks, Pacers get the ball back with one shot and guess who takes it and steals the game from the Knicks. What does this have to do with hip hop in Portland?

Many on the underground have been waiting and praying for the fall of Jammin' 95.5. Today was supposed to be the day, but they Reggie Miller-ed the underground scene by moving up the dial to movin'. 107.5 is now the new jammin'.

I truly sit in the middle on this one. It would have been interesting to see how hip hop would develop in Portland. Some say 95.5 recked the progressing hip hop scene while others disagree. I'm not going to lie; I did enjoy the radio recently. Dj's were being more expressive and creative with the mixes. I heard some old school Outkast on 95.5, and not just on Sunday. It was mid day, mid week!

I will have to echo the sentiments expressed in the Oregonian today. I hope the new jammin' recognizes what makes hip hop culture great and works to develop that appreciation in the youth through the radio. We'll see. A new game has begun, and I'm not leaving the arena early.



Beat-a-week this week "NDGroove of Thangs to Come" One of my retro tracks with a damn good groove if I say so myself.
