  6. 6. THANK YOU TO: MY MOTHER, ANNE JONES, R.I.P. The late king, Richard Pryor, for his brilliance and bravery, to all street ni**az alive, buried alive or passed on. Denmark V esey for his heart, Toussaint L'Ouverture for freeing Haiti, George and Jonathan Jackson - you guys inspired me and my brother. Hannibal for his warrior skills and spreading his seed. Chris Rock!, my ni**a Tracy Morgan, Dave Chappelle, Martin Lawrence - just for being who y'all are. Eso Won Books for providing me with the resources and information and just talkin to me about real sh*t ...See u guys soon! Josephine Baker, Billie Holiday and all the jazz musicians who came before us and traveled the world, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, the Heath Brothers, to Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder. Soledad Brothers, Iceberg Slim - greatest writer ever. Spike Lee for putting a mirror up and changing how we see ourselves as black Americans, Oscar Micheaux, Alexander Pushkin, Dick Gregory you are the realest!!!! Redd Foxx, Paul Mooney, Minister Louis Farrakhan, this album is for all blood shed by fallen soldiers from Emmett Till to Amadou Dialo to Sean Bell, you all are not forgotten, none of your deaths go in vain, we are in a war fighting. Thank you to Muhammad Ali, Frank Sinatra, Marlon Brando, Eminem, Sidney Poitier, Harry Belafonte, Prince, Russell Simmons, Denzel Washington, Michael Jordan for being an inspiration for me to be the best and get this paper and not take no sh*t! Cicely T yson, Debbie Allan, Miss Wallace, Assata Shakur, Afeni Shakur, Madam CJ Walker, Rita Marley, Sojourner Truth, Harriet T ubman, Betty Shabazz and Coretta Scott King. May hip hop continue to scare the hell out of all the people who planned genocide against black people everywhere ...may it crush those who constantly try to criticize it and stop it, and silence the youth just because they don't understand them. Ya plan backfired and now we run sh*t. If you would only listen to the youth more you would be in tune with what lies ahead in the future. To every man and woman, no matter what you are, or who you worship or what color you are... you are all ni**ers as long as you stay ignorant and blind to what's really goin on in the world and continue the sick behavior against other people based on your own stupidity. Peace to all mankind! To my daughter and wife you both are my inspiration. From the heart, YOUR NI**A, NAS "Ni**er" or "ni**a," not even the lesser evil "negro," could ever be our title. We are way more complicated, beautiful and intelligent than any word created for us. Africa isn't even a name we chose for the continent. But hey...it is what it is. Some things just stick and are hard to change. What would be a proper name for us? Think about it. We should decide on it. I don't think it matters much but, with that being said, racial bias will probably never die. Y would think in this day and in these times, with all that's going on all over the planet, we ou should be past this. I want to be past this but it seems like some things don't go away. Instead they get more dangerous and worse. Ni**er is a word that comes from the horrible African-American slave trade. That slave trade is a massive part of American history but people want to sweep it under the rug like it never existed. They get uncomfortable when it's talked about, yet we are constantly killed by the police, and our youth thrown in jail daily for doing nothing illegal at all. Nobody cares. And can you believe hateful people are outraged when a black politician does something positive to help black people like it's a crime. So sad we Americans are. I believe there are tons of things happening in the world that people are not ready to know, or couldn't handle mentally if we did know. So stop saying sh*t like affirmative action was enough payment and stop asking why are we complaining, affirmative action helps all minorities, not just blacks. Reparations are past due. I pray the world changes for the better for everybody. Until then teach the kids the truth, pray we see this black man - not a ni**er - win the presidential election. It's about time America - all people live your life. The struggle continues. Live your life. Drive your Benz's. Y are royalty. Wear your jewels. ou Work hard but play harder. Wear that fly fashion sh*t or your culturally aware gear. Stay fresh to def. Smoke your weed. Protest, you have a voice - use it. Be happy. Travel the world. F**k, drink, eat great food, create hobbies. Get away from hateful people - only deal with loved ones! One million ones! (One love).
