but from Midnite

Had the sheer exalted pleasure of basking in the power of Midnite last night. [Led there by the love in my heart and rushing through my veins, the soul has captured mine] The recording in the video was made when they performed at the same venue in Asheville last year. Trinity goddesses, loose limbs and One pulsation. This song was the message I’d come to hear

Love the life you live

Lead the life you love

Love the life you live

Lead the life you love

You should lead the life you love

You should lead the life you love

World is in trouble

Arm a geddon shall show her face

Upon creation

Goodness and mercy

Driven from the minds of the people

Lamentation

Jah Sire deliver me

Jah Sire have mercy

Jah Sire Father send I some

goodness and mercy

It a go murder them a go charge for

A pure chemical industry

Them a run from cultivation

Goodness and mercy

Driven from the minds of the people

Lamentation

Jah Sire deliver me

Jah Sire have mercy

Jah Sire Father send I some

goodness and mercy

Send I some goodness

Send I some goodness and mercy

Love the life you live

Lead the life you love

The mountains of Africa

They are familiar to me

You see the black sons of Cush

We were scattered everywhere

For as far as the eyes could see

But we are from the mountains of the moon

Kile Man Jah Row, Kile Man Jah Row

Mount Re Wen Zui, Mount Nebo

Kile Man Jah Row

So we love the life we live

Lead the life we love

We love the life we live

Lead the life we love

Lead the life we love

Lead the life we love

No tears, you don’t shed no tears

You don’t shed no tears

Awhoa no tears seen seen

Your body is your temple

Your one and only temple

You are living in the Holy Places

Of the tabernacle of the most high Jah

Love the life you live

Lead the life you love

Don’t shed no tears

You don’t shed no tears

When I cry I cry dry

When I cry I cry dry

Love the life you live

Lead the life you love

You are living in the Holy Places

Of the tabernacle of the most high Jah

KRS ONE: “I am not just saying this because you [a woman] are asking the question, this is my real answer: More women. More women. Not just emcees or b-girls, but women taking control of hip-hop. Let me be culturally-specific- hip-hop’s women should teach hip-hop’s men how to speak to them. Because when we learn how to speak to you, we can learn how to speak to the whole business world. It’s not just about respecting you…it is…but it’s deeper than just respecting another human being. Everytime you degrade a person, you degrade yourself, because you are standing next to that person. You can’t diss a person, and not diss yourself…I should say ’she’s a queen.’ And what does that make me? A king. So now at the end of the day, what’s missing in hip-hop? Knowledge of self, that should only come from women. I know that sounds feminist, but that’s real talk.

[Check it: feminism is real talk.]

A good friend of mine I unfortunately don’t see much of anymore. I believe he’s a crazy creepy genius and this experimental electronic music video is a precise testament to his life and personality. Watching it makes me feel empty.

He and a few others are playing All Asia next Tuesday, September 29th if you’d like to attend.
