Working hard like old dude at the tire shop on Glenwood Road over in Decatur!! shout outs and much respect for the hookup on the tires!!

Working hard!! meanwhile dude from over in Decatur / the hood gave me that look of a hater, the sideways glance / the stink eye; I was rocking a Charlotte Panthers hat in the home of the Atlanta Falcons, but that’s the style son!! representing until the clock expires!!

The sideways glance / the stink eye, a by-product of the Full Moon in Aquarius? check the hustle knocks, these jokers are out here acting nefarious!!

Eddie Henderson – Say You Will

Digital Crate Digging Continues on what I call a Terrible / Terrific Tuesday; things can go either way..

Actually? it’s been a terrific day because we expected it, it’s all perspective; naysayers should respect the way we play..

What’s up with it? players should expect us to play that funky music!! for our peace? this sound is conducive…

What’s up with it? prayers of expectation are released plus actions are taken!! jokers are out here faking, talking a good game about peace but we know as far as they’re concerned it’s elusive..

What’s up with it? these players are listening to this good jazz funk / disco jazz from Eddie Henderson  with a track called Say You Will

Check the players and the track, we’re chilling out with a low key O-Dog Day Party going, as we keep going for what we’re knowing; our constituents know the deal..

Digital Crate Digging Continues on this Music Monday, plus we’re O-Dog Day Partying…

Partying with a purpose, dropping science is how we work this; we’re back up in it / in the heart of this thing!!

The purpose is not defeated, even though the signs in the street / word on the curb point to the Matrix Architect wanting us alt- shift- deleted..

Worthless? please, a dude grinds but gets no respect; now  like these streets of Atlanta per this 90 degree weather?  we’re heated

How did some work this? the drama greeted us when we were like Lonnie Liston Smith and The Cosmic Echoes  looking for  A Chance for Peace

How will they work this? check out the players and the track as echoes of past episodes are heard; the catch phrase was “no justice no peace”

Isaac Hayes – Café Regio’s

Digital Crate Digging Continues per my Saturday Night Fever segment; my people? they’re eligible for it!! good music? that’s what we’ve got to give!!

The saga / struggle continues, dealt with per our motto; what’s that? Let The Music Play!! That’s how we’re trying to live!!

Oh yes!! O-Dog Day Partying earlier, so now who’ll work with a bruh that’s in a Sunday Jazz vibe?

Well, maybe we can have a taste of both world as the world / turntables turn; we’re doing this for the tribe..

What’s the perspective? we’re cooling out / chilling out, hopefully the vibe will be cool  like  Isaac Hayes at Café Regio’s

This is from the Shaft movie’s soundtrack!! check out the players and the track!! you should know how it goes!!

Shout out to DJ Moon Ra for showing us how it goes!! mentioning eleven years ago today, our world said goodbye to the legendary Isaac Hayes (Aug 20, 1942 – Aug 10, 2008).

Going all out, check the tune as we keep the tradition going with this digital crate digging; I already told you the motto; “Let The Music Play”

Kleeer – Open Your Mind (Joey Negro Seeekret Mix)

Sunday Jazz Continues on a nice summer evening in Atlanta; we’re in chill mode…

Chilling out in the lab / compound / remote outpost away from those that are in an ill mode…

Shady deals? truth not told,  stories will be twisted to satisfy the respective  demographics..

The truth is somewhere in the middle, O-Dizzle will solve the riddle while out here doing the mathematics…

Uncouth when I played it like Kleeer;  Open Your Mind was what I told fanatics but like the preacher mentioned in the morning sermon who’ll listen?

Cool with it? this is the Joey Negro Seeekret Mix, disco jazz / jazz funk at it’s finest as this brotha  continues to get breakbeat scientific; we’re on a mission..

Brooklyn Funk Essentials – Selling Out

Sunday Jazz Continues; we’re broadcasting live from a remote outpost,similar to Area 51 but it’s out off of I-20  in Atlanta..

Son? trying not to spaz but shots were blasting / exploding from Pennsylvania Ave in DC about crime / rat infested cities of Baltimore and Atlanta..

Elijah Cummings mentioned in the tirades, the brotha O-Dizzle kept the  funky drumming going he’s hip to these charades..

I’m summing up the consequences /  doing the mathematics, not dealing with these fanatics; the inclement weather will rain on these parades..

During these ongoing escapades #BlacksForTrump2020 was mentioned, some we’re paid attention, I guess you can say it’s selling out…

But I digress, we’re listening to this jazz funk goodness from Brooklyn Funk Essentials with a track called  Selling Out

Joey Negro – Free Bass

Digital Crate Digging Continues per the Humpday Extravaganza; the O-Dog Day Party partying with a purpose!!  all the way live, broadcasting live from the city of Atlanta..

Constituents are worldwide, for freedom we still  ride!! that’s how we work this, understand a brotha? sometimes tripping, on this 5th anniversary of the Eric Garner killing with Bill Barr conclusions of no charges;  wondering,  where did the mothership land a brotha?

Tripping, wandering around the universe  like Apollo 11 for the 50th anniversary now back down to earth dropping a verse plus this funk; doing this for the masses..

Breakbeat science is  dropped onto the clearance rack, an after the Fourth of July sale with the Capricorn Full Moon / Lunar Eclipse being the basis…

This Joey Negro track Free Bass is dropped , no clearance needed for that!! we’re bringing something y’all can feel..

Whatcha know? we’ll let go, madness is dropped so we can move forward on to the next; some of y’all know the deal..

Rim Kwaku Obeng – Funky Drummer

Digital Crate Digging Continues on a Throwback Thursday; who’ll work with me?

The saga / struggle continues as we go back to the future; retro- futuristic is how the work will be…

You heard me? it’s going down like this; this is the business!! there is no shady business like Jeffrey Epstein..

Some wonder why Oprah and Gayle didn’t “holla at him” like they did R Kelly and Michael Jackson!! O-Zone observing the action / observing the scene..

O-Zone is ready to roll , he’s on his way!! rolling up with O-Dizzle the funky drummer..

Paying homage and respect per this Afrobeat, jazz funk, disco jazz!! listening to Rim Kwaku Obeng with a track called the Funky Drummer

Quincy Jones – Stuff Like That

Digital Crate Digging Continues; good music? it’s on these menus!! we’re in the midst of the HumpDay Extravaganza!!

Started out Afternoon Jazzing, it prevented us from spazzing!! for some ignorance was bliss; somebody might understand a brotha!!

We moved on, O-Dog Day Partying on a hot day in Atlanta; I mean, what else are we supposed to do?

We moved on; the old school Baptist preacher said live your life, ignore the toil and strife!! you know the devil is opposed to you!!

Plus the devil is a liar, word from O-Zone the town crier dropping this good word; naysayers we’re like Quincy Jones; asking about Stuff Like That..

Please!! we’re rocking these zones with this soul jazz / jazz funk / disco jazz; check out the players and the track as they put it down like that!!
