Hotep... The Video Game

Image
I used to think it was only Hollywood that didn’t love us.  I am coming to find out that apparently video games are much the same.  Want some more of the Black Friend© Pet Negro™ Happyslave Junction?  Fire up your game console and wait for the rare black character to come across the screen.
     We decided to come up with our own community-based solution to the problem. Hotep…  The Video Game.
I lack in the skills necessary to make this myself, so I am yet shopping the idea around to various game houses.  I tried selling to the guys who made me wait 94 months for the painfully average Mighty No 9, but they still won’t return my messages.  I know they need the money! I figured I would start with 5 levels and each would end with a “boss battle” of some sort.

Level One – “Break The Chains”:
     In this level, you enter on the ground floor.  We place you in situations that place your Wokeness® into question and must choose the higher path.  For the sake of this level, the goal is to make…

Phood Phun With Phlip - Breakfast Muffins

Image
Consistency.
I find what works and I stick with it until it doesn’t work anymore.  I eat this for breakfast most weekdays and I have for several months.  It is a high protein, easy to carry food that doesn’t cost a ton of money to make.
And they're dead simple to make!

First you will need:
5 eggs Meat(s) of your choosing...  We used some diced chicken breast and turkey smoked sausage.
1/2 cup of shredded cheese
Cream cheese is amazing in these too Onions and peppers, diced (or spinach, kale, mushrooms, zucchini, radishes, tomatoes/salsa...  be creative, switch it up!)

     Spray a mini loaf tin with nonstick spray and put in your non-egg items:

Add half the cheese on top of that, then pour in the scrambled eggs, then top with the rest of the cheese:

Place into a waiting 350 degree oven, and bake until the eggs are good and set:


Cut your loaves into even portions, sectioned out into how many ever breakfasts you intend to consume that week:


Let them cool and put them into a ziplock bag…

Some Words on Sean Price's Imperius Rex

Image
Duck Down Records


In the mid-90s, I was a high schooler. I feel a certain way about the hip hop I allow myself to consume.
Summer 1996, Heltah Skeltah released Nocturnal, an album unlike anything I had heard to that time and I was a fan. At the time, I thought Rockness was the better lyricist of the two but they were both entertaining enough as a collective to hold my attention. I HAD to have listened to that album every day senior year.
Things happened, the duo split for a while and Sean Price started making solo albums...
Great. Fucking. Solo. Albums.
He was new to many, but simply getting better at his craft to the ones who remembered.
Unfortunately, on August 8, 2015 Sean passed in his sleep.
On the second anniversary of his passing, we get his second posthumous release, titled Imperius Rex. The conventional album release day used to be Tuesdays but that was abandoned by most a couple of years ago. I am going to go with the coincidence of the release date, anniversary of his passing an…

I am a confusing being… I know I am difficult, yet I pride myself in the simplicity that I tend to operate in.
When I was 11, we left my pops...

When I was 12, I dreamt up two plans… 1 – when the moment arrives, any child I sire will be left with no question of preference, nor would they live in a dearth of attention. 2 – when I get the words confounding my head in order, I WILL entertain the masses with what I am thinking.
To thought number 1… I am the middle child in birth order, do your research and understand that this is a real thing.  I live in two families that are each colorstruck, and lived not light or dark enough for full inclusion on either side.  I was left to make my own way.  My baby knows not these problems.  She asks for my attention, she gets it.  She doesn't ask for my attention, she still gets it.  Suffice it to say, I take to this daddy thing seriously enough to not repeat the things that broke me growing up.
And 2… I was never anyone’s favorite…
My twin was the th…
