Afro Shaman Chant (I Spit These Bars)

Photobucket

I spit these bars for freedom and the steady stream of consciousness,
for higher vibrational frequencies and a perpetual state of righteousness,
for the deep deep blackness, that is deep as the abyss,
that condenses bad intentions til no wickedness exists.

See my gangsta is mystical, my high concentration of melanin
allows me to pull the spiritual realm in to the physical,
So don’t try to sell me a dream I don’t sleep,
liberation is track seven and I keep it on repeat.

I spit these bars…I spit these bars

I spit these bars with a rum and ganja lean,
introspective with the flow like I’m Illmatic with this thing.
Free em all, free em all too all the soldiers in the Bing,
like Mumia-Abu Jamal and Jalil Muntaquim.

for the thoughts from the mind of a black man in his prime,
for Baldwin, Baraka, Brooks and Chester Himes,
for the mind that stays focused, for the constant frustration,
for the countless amounts of mistakes made due to desperation.

I spit these bars…I spit these bars

These bars ain’t about blood diamonds and European cars,
They’re about pain, passion, poetry and scars,
about selected officials and the fraudulence of the elite,
about socio-politics and police brutality,
about light skin and dark skin, good hair and bad hair,
being a slave to the workforce or a slave to welfare.
My nephew and my niece both sick without healthcare,

Trying to find heaven but it smells like hell here.
This should be heaven but we keep making hell here.

I spit these bars…I spit these bars

for people with bad energy and inexpensive speak,
because the desert of deceit is an oasis for the weak.
For manufactured fear and mass media manipulation,
the mind control frequencies from the radio stations.

For honoring creation and the black woman’s divinity,
man, women and child represents the special trinity.
For social networking sites promoting false intimacy,
the balance of the scales, red Alize and Hennessey.

I spit these bars…I spit these bars

I spit these bars for the life that just can’t get right,
for Fela Kuti blowing his sax, Roforofo Fight.
For the dignity that’s felt in the aftermath of victory,
for the mental chains and the acknowledgment of history.

For the triumph of love and the evidence of the unseen,
for the red, green and gold and the red, black and green.
For the preservation of culture and the promise of unity
For the revival of pride and restoration of the black family

I spit these bars…

  1. Awesome prose, I had to sit and read it three times to receive the full effect. The sentiments being expressed speak of a man who is deeply convicted to that which he believes in. I've read some great prose on Blogger but never anything as potent as your lyrical exercise.

    Thanks for sharing. It coincides with the By All Means Necessary attitudes of many of my black heroes, especially Huey Newton.

    Truth @ These bars ain’t about blood diamonds and European cars,
    They’re about pain, passion, poetry and scars,
    about selected officials and the fraudulence of the elite,
    about socio-politics and police brutality,
    about light skin and dark skin, good hair and bad hair,
    being a slave to the workforce or a slave to welfare.

  5. Excellent, i can feel this in my bones and i can hear you speaking this w/the rhythm of jazz bands and tribal drums. Your lyrical phrasing spoke to my heart, and your sentiment was felt here and beyond. Excellent my brother! And may peace be upon the brother who inspired this piece.

  8. J! Seriously, this had me holding my breath! Powerful and I could fee EACH and EVERY word of it! I would love to post this link to my FB so that whoever wants to feed their mind can come and soak up these words. As conditioning and powerful as words are, this would be so suited for our schools with our kids and for them to memorize so that the meaning can sink in and they can realize their potential and what life really is! I absolutely love this!

  41. I recently read a scene where the hero fell on his arse and made an idiot out
    of himself and I thought I would like him less for it,
    but because he laughed at himself and handled
    it well I liked him more. Is there a spelling, capitalization, or other typographical error
    in the address? Port St. However, many of the act’s standards for
    those chemicals have not been updated since the 1980s , and
    some remain essentially unchanged since the law was passed in 1974.
    These costs do not include the mandated safety upgrades
    for freight rail lines that carry both passenger as
    well as freight traffic and for those routes that carry toxic chemicals as required by
    the Rail Safety Improvement Act of 2008.
