Where are all the brothers in all of these high priced advertising’s? From the run ways to most of the marketing material that we see where are the people of color represented? When are we going to start talking with our money? The only time I see black people is on them Lane Bryant mags for plus size women that my moms gets!!

Its all about them Ocean boys baby! wats good? how are you guys…. i miss yall. waiting for Everyone to be in one room… JD, Usher, Songz 00711, Mo green, B cox T.Ranger,Johnta and Ty. keep doing what you doing and Stay so Fresh grown man style…. And i saw bow wow got his grown man on in a blog on here but the real question at hand is… was it good enough to be a Ocean memeber???? let me know wats up O Boyz!
Yes siiiiiiir!!!!!!!! This what it is.
And to spock; I feal u my dude……… It can be discouraging but with time that will change. Its up to us and our kids, to make a difference in our future and media. Much respect.
JD I have a proposition for you, let’s get together and create our own bottle of PROSECO!! i can get a bottle for 3euros, roughly 4$ the pooor dollar will never recover thanks to that dumb ass BUSH . Anyway it comes from the VENICE region in ITALY where my inlaws are from . I can get WINE and PROSECO directly from the vineyard , the PROSECO I can get without the label. I hace been thinking about this for a few years now because when I first went to Italy and we went to the supermarket tey had CRISTAL for 99euros, DOM P also I said to my wife we should creat our on bottle. Proseco is a good digestive before you eat. Try it with a dash of CAMPARI . i have a few more ideas concerning a studio here in SPAIN a place where you can take the artist away from it all and just work, the great thing it is 2mins from the OCEAN actually you can here the waves crashing. My wife and I want to invest also no bullshit bro. Give me the address to one of the studios and i will send you a case of the PROSECO my father= inlaw will be here aug 3 with our rations for the 20days of drinkng, eating and playing cards. I already asked him to bring a extra case so I could send it to you. Also i will send a bottle of BRUNELLO. Just send me the address where you want me to ship it to and you check it out, and we can go from there. we will be over in ITALY on some GODFATHER type shit (GENCO OLIVE OIL) . I waited in line 2hours to see THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK , YOUNG SKYWALKER!!
yo jd check out my blog outofthisworldoutofmymind.blogspot.com!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE IT REAL niggas on their GROWN MAN shissshhhhhhhhhhh : ): )
now all MR. 007 DNT 4GET 11 Needs is ME by his side
@ Spock, before Mike passed I said to myself where is he? You had not commented in quite a while to me most of your comments are negative (except the one about Mike) i ask myself why does he not like JD and what he is trying to do. Now in all fairness I must agree with you about the people with the clothes on are white, but so fucking what man. The way I see it the person makes the clothes not vice versa. Of course racism still is prevalent in the world and it will alway be around, Why do we try to measure up to white people when we are the measuring stick. This is a big problem for me , the other day a BOLD ASS ENGLISH guy asked me did I think i was superior to him and his friends. It suprised me but I told him no I did not and I understood why his people had to opress us and try to hold us down because they understood what we are capable of more than we did. He just looked at me and shook his head as I got in my BENZ . Black people need to stop all of the dumb shit between each other and realize that we need to stick together more and fuck all of the bullshit. I hate to say this in my life i have had more problems with blacks than whites, I grew up on the west side of the A so it is not like I grew up around whites at all but I know how to deal with them. I use to feel like you but once I began to see the world and how the world saw me (AMERICAN) my life started to change for the better. To the american blackman i want you to know that we are the most loved and hated species on this planet. In saying this you have to try to find that happy medium , I think this is all the young brother is trying to do. It can’t be easy because blacks are so fickle, you asked where are the black people and we need to talk with our money. Man please black people if I don’t know you I can’t spaak to you. EXAMPLE: I’m in the airport in MADRID, SPAIN on my way to D.C. to witness HISTORY in JAN. I don’t see alot of blacks from the states much so when i do my eyes light up, i spoke to this guy he just gave me the chin up, okay i was like he might be african so i understand. i go to buy a book for the flight and i see him again , this time he i bumped him by mistake and said excuse me bro, he said no problem . i was like man where are you from? He says ATLANTA , I’m like get the fuck out, me where did you go to high school? This stupid mf says to me man you asking alot of ?? I don’t know you, I’m like no shit SHERLOCK until we can overcome this bullshit we will never get anywhere. NIGGAS AND FLIES I DO DESPISE, THE MORE I SEE NIGGAS, THE MORE I LOVE FLIES!!
I understand your points but let me say a few things. I never hated JD I have supported him his whole career, we had our differences which we found out was a misunderstanding but I highly respect that brother.
I grew up in a mostly white neighborhood and went to a fine arts middle and high school. (Rules of a magnet school…45% white, 45% black 10% other) I am comfortable with everybody and grew up on the Bon Jovi’s, Lenard Skinnard, and Guns and Roses. This is one of the main reasons why I picked Morehouse as my college. Going to school with nothing but black people totally takes out the whole racial card.
The point that I was making is when are we going to start supporting our own? JD has accomplished one thing in his life that I respect more then anything else and that is being able to employee others (particularly black men) (I don’t know whats up with the studio guy, but then again, he is black too LOL)
If you live in Atlanta like I do, how many brothers that you know have got caught with some weed and have went to jail but once they got out they can’t find a job? Why because who is hiring? No body is perfect and we all make mistakes but if you look at the numbers, a black college graduate makes less then a white person with a high school diploma. It is what it is. Now I work everyday and realize that I am blessed to be able to do so but how about if I was the one with that weed charge? It will be a lot harder to get a job. My point is that I am trying to get myself to the point that I can hire about 5 or 10 of these brothers so they will have an opportunity to take care of their families. You can’t do that if you don’t have your own company which is my goal. This goes back to the whole trickle down thing. In these big companies that we are spending so much money with who is making the real money in those companies? If you look at all of these clothing companies Like BAPES who JD talks about all the time, get their executive list to see who is making the real money in those companies. They might hire some black people but more often then not they are in positions with low glass ceilings.
Spock i live in Spain bro and everything you said is right on point i will get back to this later on with you. We must finish this because we want the same things for our people. I will say this if a mf like i use to be can say FUCK the US i’m going to EUROPE anybody can do it . I never got caught this is the only difference between me and them. I love my people man and I want them to love themselves because the world loves us.The way we walk , talk, dress the whole nine but they don’t understand how and why we have not come together as a people. They ask me and i do not know what to say at all , after awhile the same ole story get’s old. Take care
I got an answer for you bro…It’s called the family structure. You can’t look at the present and look towards the future without looking at the past. Every other race of people can come to America and do great but the one thing they all have in common is that their family unit stays in tact. The man woman and child. When they took the man out of the black family we have never recovered from that. Once in slavery and again when they implemented warfare. People say what you want and you will always have expectations, but having both parents in your left give you a major advantage and a whole different out look on life. How many black single women do you see in Atlanta? How many women do you see at the barber shops on Saturdays by themselves. How many kids do we see to women that are not married in our community?
JD… I really be feelin that Ocean shit ya”ll be on!! More Niggaz need 2 be on That Grown ish!! N Tha Jonney Walker thats wsup!!
@ Spock you have struck a nerve , both of my parents did not know their father so your family structure theory is valid and very right . They only got married because of me so you know this is a recipe fo disaster. My dad was incapable of being a father to me because of his fucked up childhood. I knew that he loved me and this was enough for me , my mom rolled out when I was 8yrs old she is from Honduras and she did not care for the south and she was a bit loose so they divorced and my dad got custody of me. It never dawned on me that i did not have parents untl that first homecoming game in college and i was the only one of my friends that di not have family there. I played football and was good so had company just not my family. My dad died at 47 in 91, i have tried to make sense of it all and i have asked my grandmom who was my dad’s dad. it has caused a riff between us and her kids because they feel I am wrong for asking this ?? But to me it is my right to know, it was a bad experiance for her I suppose and she does not care to rehash this.My ? to her was if it was so bad that you cannot speak of it how in the world do you love me when I am a direct result of this!! I have 6 brother’s and sister’s , five of them live in the A , I have a relationship with 4 of them and one i only saw when he was 2weeks old. My other sister lives in bmore and she is the same age as me , I told you i need to write a fucking book. Actually my two younger brother’s are the same age also. My dad was a good guy just did not have a chance the start his step dad abused him physically and mentally from the age of 5. You see i have no foundation st all, but SPOCK i still could have made it to the NFL had i not been so arrogant and talked shit to a scout. i had a talent that was a god given one and i chose to walk away from it. i have proof of my talent and it will always will be there , i have the record for thr longest punt in GA HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL, 90YARDS when i went home to bury my son 2 different people from 2different walks of life knew this and of course i remember doing it but it was so long ago. now you know a little about me and my broken family but i still had a chance i just made all the wrong moves , notice I said I because it was me making the choices no one really seemed to care . I chose my college alone with no input from anyone , stupid me i chose a black school over U PENN how dumb was that. But it was a easy choice for me because i felt that it did not matter where i went they would come and they did. Enough of me and my shit , when you say (they) who excactly are you talking about white people i guess . i understand what you mean but i know where we come from so i don’t let that bother me. What happened to going to school and getting a degree and making something of yourself this has fallen by the wayside , this is where we have to start and this is the only solution . Also there is the military, only the navy or coast guard not to be in direct harms way. This is what I dd and it helped me alot. Bro i don’t have the answer’s at all , only what I think it could be and what i dream. God has watched over me in this life SPOCK with everything i wrote to you about my life and guess what i live in EUROPE bro so i feel i have to share my experiances with someone to let them know that they can do something even when things are not perfect! You have to want it, NOTHING BEATS A FAILURE, BUT A TRY i am still tyring bro. Take care of yourself i’m sure we will converse agian.
Thanks for sharing. When I come to Global this is the kind of real shit I am looking for. I can care less about shoes, clothes, houses and the rest of that bullshit that doesn’t really matter. I like talking to people and about issues effecting everybody.
I am very impressed by what you have been through and what you have come from. I think that it is all about timing. We are so impatient; we want everything today, but what is happening in the meantime? You should be getting better! Everything that you have been through has just made you a stronger person, at least you are using those experiences to your benefit some people would say fuck it and just start doing crimes. I know you are in Europe but Atlanta is crazy right now, everyday you turn on the news niggas are either breaking in stores or are doing home invasions. THIS IS MY REALITY, I could care less about a Bape store in London. Whatever you put your mind to you can do it. My parents have been married all my life and even through my father has played his trumpet with James Brown, Al Green and lots of other people, he and my mom never helped me with my music career. I am here and have sold over 150,000 units independently with no deal and I’m still going, but in the meantime I am getting stronger and stronger. It’s funny. I always wanted to have a record deal and now a record deal ain’t worth nothing. The people that had the deals are going to have to learn how to run their companies as an independent something that I have been doing for 10 years.
I’m going to leave you with this bro. I went to Eddie Longs church Sunday and he was dropping bombs on them. Remember you have someone assigned to you. Everything that you do in public and in private is being recording and on judgment day you will be held accountable. Turn everything you have been through into something positive and try to help as many people as possible. I was once told that it is easier to find a needle in a haystack then for a rich man to get to heaven. In 50 years we are going to be died as hell, and the question that will be asked is what did you do with your life and how many people have you helped??
Holla at your boy… I keep it 1000
@ Spock check this out my uncle was a trumpet player aslo , he played with alot of people he got the gold record for DISO LADY with JT , his name is ROBERT ARNOLD. Ask your dad did he do the gig in NICE, FRANCE in 1994?? I was backstage with AL GREENS band . I was in the Navy at the time and I found out that Al was going to be there so I went by myself no one wanted to go. Man it was like thr ROAD SHOWS they use to have in the A. I met Coko Taylor, Angelique Kidjo , Stanley Clarke and alot of other people. It was great now if by chance your dad was there how crazy is that?? Spock I no first hand about how th A as become , ny beautiful son was murdered in march over a fight,only 28yrs old . I was not there for him like I should have been but I tried and trie to get him with me his mom would not let him come . This bitch says to me after he is fucking dead , i should have let him go with you and said I’m sorry. I was polite with her but when I think of this it kllls me inside because he could have had a different life. But she kept him in the hood he could have gone to the same school that AI went to in VA. I use to live in HAMPTON. I had it all planned out she said NO. Spock he left 2little girls behind man so my desire to create something is for them so they can have a chance. You might have known him Carvel Booker was his name he touched alot of people over 1000 people were at the funeral. Guess what i tried to get him over here but he had a WEED charge and was scared to tell me about it. We could have paid a lawyer to have this exsponged this is what you do with a simple weed charge. My boy is gone and it hurts man so i understand totally about the streetS in the A. Spock just keep your head up bro, i will make a deal with you if you have a passport or get one and come and visit me and my family here in Spain it is up to you!! The offer is on the table. Keep grinding bro things will work out for you. Maybe we can create something and make some money and help some people at the same time. Let’s see what we can come up with!! Take care bro i will be in touch.
He not oceaned out you know why?? cuz we all know that the oceans carry that GOOD OL’ JOHNNY WALKER!!
