"We Are Lasers" by Jacquie Naami


I took my shades off for the trilogy

expose a revolution 
a neo-peoples movement

you thought the end had come with 3

but a crowd is nothing to me

Light up my world

my eyes are open for the seeing 
I want watercolor hip hop for this next one
blend it
blended so smoothly with reality and poetry
with rhyme and free verse

not that choppy shit that blocky that singular mosaic shit

laser it and blend it a watercolor masterpiece
and do it quickly Dali foresaw it 
time is melting away and I-
the world deserves to see your artistry 
through their headphones

paint them a water color portrait of what Hip Hop looked like when Common still loved her

paint a coster sized image of what Hip Hop looked like when Lauryn embodied her
and I will keep it in my pocket

paint it with your laser pen and we will absorb your take on it
paint me a portrait of Hip hop on your microphone 

I need to see her through eyes like my own
does Hip Hop look like me or should I wish for the bluest eyes like Claudia?
tired of fitting into boxes not made for sisters with noses hips and asses
no lights for my brothers dark as  asphalt and smooth as chocolate
even our savior was painted as a white boy but I was made in his image

use your laser to tie me into history
with your watercolor vocabulary.
make it blend 
it's more complicated than black white deeper than grey

use your laser and paint a new image of Hip Hop one where we all win
one where we all relate 
unable to find anything familiar besides the feeling that good music brings

Hear the "Rain and Thunder"

Check out these new buds from ThinkSound. They are called the Rain & Thunder Headphones and they run anywhere between $75-$100. Both pairs of headphones feature wooden bodies sourced from renewable sources, and come in recycled, bleach-free packaging with a cotton carrying pouch that's sewn from renewable sources. Oh, and they sound good too, thanks to the Rain's 9mm drivers that offer exceptional clarity, or the aptly-named Thunder's 10mm drivers tuned to provide thumping bass.

So it looks like the year 2010 is the year for everyone to make moves. I have been watching artists new and old while at the same time working on my own projects.

So far my band has won the battle of the bands which will enable us to open for the headliner at The College of Wooster's Springfest....I'll let yall know who it is as soon as everything is finalized. I know its been awhile but we are still working on tracks for the public.
