Who cares if Kanye isn’t selling CDs anymore or why Tyga thinks Tupac is his father, this is how you start off the week!
What happens when One culture takes over another? What happened when Christianity met the indigenous peoples in the New World? What happened when the Ottomon Turks invaded Constantinople?
This picture was taken at the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, Turkey.
Here is one of the Original Mosaics that was plastered over after Constantinople was conquered by the Turks. The Church was converted in a Mosque, and the name of city Constantinople was changed to Istanbul.
In the early 20th century, the Mosque was converted into a museum and experts were brought in to remove the plaster to reveal the original art work.
So what happened when Chief Seattle Bean One met Chief Pontiac One Be Lo? Find out on The Original B.O.R.N. O.N.E.S. below.
With 4/5 of the project made up of original recordings from a decade ago, One Be Lo and Bean One felt the need to speak on a few of today’s issues as well.
On the intro track, “Water Guns (Lead is Water BORN),” Lo directs his attention to the ongoing Water Crisis in Flint, Michigan. While America continues to witness police killing innocent black people—filling them with lead bullets—the song compares the shootings to the lead-contaminated water that has been filling Flint’s residents.
“Flashbacks/ Splash backs/ you might pose a threat/ Shot a Teenaged mutant/ that Ninja need Sewer side help/ They Land mines, if planning the wrong steps/ Strategic, they give us a choice to choose our own death/”
POLICE MORE LIKE TERRORIST HERE,
TEST SCORES STARTING TO PLUNGE,
FOR DAUGHTERS AND SONS
WHEN DREAMS START CLOGGING THE PIPES,
THEY POCKET THE FUNDS
KILL US DEAD
FILL US WITH LEAD
you might pose a threat
Shot A Teenage mutant
That ninja need sewer side help
They Land mines, if planning the wrong steps
Strategic, they give us a choice to choose our own death
The food we eat
The water we drink
Don’t know the signs,
but we know the Ro-lex
We so fresh
We flow best
So many black professional peeps
but as a people can we pro-gress?
walking the streets
The #Hashtags often repeat
From officer grief
For faucet and leaks
Water Guns fill you with lead
but won’t clog up the sink
A shower of bullets riddle bodies in all of this steam
Soap devour the stink
Politicians lobby disease
Some property seized
Get Shot in a dream
It’s not the same as drinking liquor but get Shot in a drink
Color watered fountains
I wonder what Martin would think?
Where the real terrorist thrive?
It’s not the East
The block sprayed up
The kids wet up
the river is red
The Living Dead asking, “why the fisherman fled?”
Don’t be shocked this happen way Before the switch was in bed
Them Emails on the web
A long time ago
Not trynna sign it tho
From lethal injections
What she ingested
When she was pregnant
It’s not game
Get shot in the stomach
shot in the brain
He tried to shoot the answers in class
His thought was a blank
His enemy is not in a tank
it’s a water tank
Emergency Manager pirates making’em walk the plank
Fall off and sank
like Africans when they crossed the waves
Slaves tradin lives
Atlantic Ocean the largest grave
we sawed off,
in double barrels
special Ed classrooms
It’s Deeper than Snoop and Dre,
it’s Under cover
Kwame in the pen talking shit like a mutha fucka
All these father figures
blaming all these muthafuckas
Its so ironic,
With plastic bottle rubbish
Filter the slime buckets
rebuild the infrastructure
Insiders move on
Outsiders move in
With water bottle coupons
Fresh Lake Huron?
Eerie and Superior?
We can’t take’em serious
-He said he was praying for the people sorrow
He’ better off playin and prayin he hit the lotto
The New world water aint a damn thing change record
So mos def, I drop a Yasiin Bey reference
Water guns spray leaded
Leaving you drained, stain, infected
With the same method.”
