I have decided to do write-ups on each track, since the album release on March 28th.
“Pending” as a whole is presented as an art exhibit. Each track is supposed to symbolize an artist’s painting, where the painter is actually the MC. The record is divided into three different periods: “Bereavement, Introspective and Growth”. Each section is accompanied by a short intro courtesy of a tour guide.
In this first intro the guide explains the artist’s vision for the fore coming tracks. This intro sets the tone for the first period and gives the listener concepts to keep in mind while listening to the song.
Okay while I do realize the average mufucka doesn’t want to learn this post will be pretty dry, but I am confident you will LEARN SUMTHIN’….
My paper was on Coriolanus a play written by William Shakespeare.
Read the summary here:
I analyze a speech made by Tellus Aufidius. Using Cicero’s (Ancient Rome Scholar) framework from De Amicitia (On Friendship) and De Officiis (Duties and Obligations), I connect sentiments made by Aufidius that exemplify Cicero’s definition of Friendship. Some of these characteristics I touch on are virtue, flattery and frankness.
Cicero’s De Officiis explains how politics cannot exist without high morality (virtue). I connect that idea with the traits of friendship and argue Cicero’s perspective of politics cannot exist with some form of friendship.
*Listen people I am not talking about 2013’s definition of friendship, where bitches is sleeping with their friends man or guys are borrowing money from their dude and have no intent of paying them back. I am talking about a honorable/virtuous relationship. This means 100% consistentcy not you being a nice guy on Friday and a dickhead on Saturday. This is something most of us have never experienced. Also debatable whether or not it exists. *
I relate my findings from Cicero’s works and claim that Coriolanus and Aufidius could have never had a true political relationship without being virtuous individuals.
Cicero’s perspectives were very enlightening and I realize how full of shit things are now…not to say it was better in the past, but Cicero’s perspectives are interesting to say the least and something to think about
So your boy got to participate in the 1st Annual York University Research Paper Fair. Now before I even summarize my experience let me just say, that as a teen I averaged a 66.6 percent durning my high school days. And now, after a certain high school teacher said “Maybe you should do a trade. English is not for you”, I am smokin’ these assignments in university.
Anyway…the experience was pretty cool. Met some nice people and even learned some new things.
But it was not very encouraging to see any other black males. I mean what is it?? Why do we not care about things such as these? Is it cause we think they strictly for other races and not ourselves. Cause I tell ya there were cute black girls participating! I don;t know, it’s weird the higher I rise in my studies and job the less and less I see of myself…
Tomorrow get ready to Learn Sumthin’!! Gonna give a quick summary of my essay.
