Brooklyn emcee LR Blitzkrieg, CO-CEO of MCMI, 1/3 of Hydra and founder of the rap crew The Plague, is here with his first solo release “Proxy.” Produced by Atlanta MC/Producer Ness Lee, Proxy takes you on a journey of living life to the fullest. Through the lens of newfound fame and wealth, Blitz paints a picture of hip hop extravagance and classic fun, with a hook that starts off with a prayer:

“Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the lord my soul to keep
And if I don’t die before I wake
When I wake up we gon’ spend all this cake!”

While he can still draw breath, LR Blitzkrieg is not only going to live each day as if it is his last, he will live it up for those who will never have the chance to. The song is a tribute and prayer for people like Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland, Philando Castille as well as for Blitz’s lifelong friend and label mate Robert “PH” Diaz, all whose lives were cut short far too soon. Filmed in Las Vegas, in collaboration with HYDRA and friends and represents living your life to the fullest because you never know when your time is up.

PROXY is the first single and video off of LR Blitzkrieg’s debut solo Album Outta Nowhere, which will drop “outta nowhere” sometime soon!

You can download or stream the song from EVERYWHERE music is sold, including iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, Tidal and Bandcamp. Leave a comment on youtube and let us know what you think of the song, the video and what it represents.

TALIB KWELI on Wayne’s “Emitt Till”, Ross’ Rape Lyric, Beyonce’s B-Word

This is actually a roundtable discussion, sans the actual table, between five people, but I couldn’t fit all that into a headline. Talib Kweli engages with HUFF POST LIVE host Marc Lamont Hill. News & Lifestyle Editor of Ebony.com Jamilah Lemeiux, Washington Post Columist Rahiel Tesfamariam and 2008 Vice Presidential Candidate, Journalist and Activist Rosa Clemente, as they discuss the recent controversial statements made by Rick Ross, being called “rape lyrics”, Lil Wayne’s “Emmett Till” reference and even Beyonce’s lyrics in her new song “Bow Down”. This is not “Street Soldiers” on HOT97. This is a sophisticated conversation between a group of educated intellectuals. Kwelirepresents Hip Hop and himself very well as he presents his case for critique of Ross and any artists who are miguided from a place of love and wanting them to change, rather than demonizing them as monsters.

There is plenty of debate as the five ask and attempt to answer “when do words cross the line and should lyrics be policed?” I must say this is one of the most intelligent healthy debates on the subject I have ever heard. Watching this video is definitely a good place for this discussion to start in our own lives, with our own friends and family, especially among the youth population who are heavy consumers of all of these artists’ music and are trying to come to grips with the lyrics as they figure out what is right and wrong, themselves. I salute all involved in making this, including Huffington Post. Share this and get the conversations started in your own community.

Stay blessed. – GMS
