O-Dog Day Partying earlier, rocking these venues!! from your neck of the woods to Atlanta it’s going down!!

George Floyd / Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery aren’t here to deal the story but their episodes let us know the deal…

We’re Not Quitting / Stopping!! (Part Five)

Check us out!! we’re typing these good words on what I refer to as a Terrible / Terrific Tuesday; things can play out either way…

Check it out, the madness isn’t stopping so we’re praying then taking action!!  we’re not quitting / stopping, this is how we’ll play!!

Reflex type of actions taken after we see how the system will play; perAhmaud Arbery / Breonna Taylor and George Floyd episodes systematic racism is exposed..

Complex situations? another pandemic in the midst of this coronavirus pandemic while the  CDC  and the WHO discusses who’s asymptomatic or pre- symptomatic?  it’s automatic that this good word is composed..

Coming with the next, check these instigations! rebuking the devil who’s not sympathetic so per Public Enemy no sympathy is shown towards him!! we’re not quitting / stopping!! check us out as we proceed and continue..

Coming with the next,  though caught up in these unpleasant situations!! we’re not quitting / stopping!! this good word and good music are on the menu..

Following in those footsteps, maybe later on O-Dog Day Party with the two steps!! no telling how it’ll be going!!

Reality already has us coming and going per this Covid 19 thing who’s asymptomatic? plus police brutality is exposing systematic racism per these George Floyd protests..

We’re Not Quitting / Stopping!! (Part Four)

Check us out!! we’re all dealing with bad breaks and setbacks, borrowing a phrase from Marvin Gaye’s Inner City Blues…

“It makes you wanna holler, the way they do my life” ; borrowing another phrase these days paying dues…

We’re not quitting / stopping! paying the price, not just dollars but using other resources due to no other recourses now we’re dealing with twin pandemics…

“It ain’t nothing nice” ; no reality divorces while dealing with Covid -19and also racism as we drop these mathematics..

“It ain’t nothing nice” ; feeling it from here in Atlanta to Louisville to Minneapolis and all points in between..

Defected Radio Show: Bring Down The Walls – 04.06.20

Digital Crate Digging Continues on this Flashback Friday; we’re still here so you can also call it a Fabulous Friday..

Some are “digging where I’m coming from” ;  they can see what I’m saying as I drop this good word and let the music play…

Of course let us pray is the advice from the old school Baptist preacher, but that advice extends to other denominations…

Especially in the midst of Covid – 19 plus in the midst of this police brutality in relationship to racial equality; plus we’re bumping heads with corporate types worried about profits in high denominations..

Meeting our breakbeat scientific obligations, dropping this Defected Radio Show: Bring Down The Walls – 04.06.20 courtesy of Defected Records..
