@sneakvandel releases “Museum of #HipHop” vol 2 hosted by @djflipcyide
A little over a year later, Sneak Vandel (Hell Razah Music, Inc. producer, GGO New Jersey Chapter Leader and Zu Bulliez affiliate) drops his sophomore full production project “Museum of Hip-Hop 2” also hosted by the one and only, DJ Flipcyide (GGO/ Wu-Tang DJs). Inspired by classic hip-hop samples, MOHH2 is another piece of production artwork from the Sneak Vandel collection.
Lord Fury (Moon Crickets/ GGO Canada) delivers the MOHH 2 intro in the same traditional raw truth “because Lord Fury said-so” manner and honestly it’s worth the entire download for that reason alone. Museum new comer Keylaze delivers a classic hip-hop sermon (which happens to be one of my personal fav tracks). This version features dynamic original tracks, some classic remixes with the final track as a tribute to hip-hop great, Sean Price. Some of the artists you’ll hear from on MOHH2 are ; Hell Razah, Lord Fury, Killah Priest, AZ, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Papoose, Tragedy Khadafi, Karnage Cashman, Dezert 3agle, EPMD, Keith Murray, and TMF.
You can download MOHH part 2 absolutely free via datpiff.com
Just in case you missed the first classic MOHH, you can still download it free!
Please visit the “Go Fund Me” page for the MOHH 3 campaign! Both MOHH 1 & 2 were funded by Sneak himself and both projects were given to hip-hop lovers free of charge! If you loved the music, donations in any amount are being accepted for the production costs of MOHH 3 and every dollar will be used towards professionally mixing & mastering as well as bringing you more classic features to enjoy, absolutely free.
Spiritual Maturity (Lesson 1)
There is a HARD lesson in life that earning an upgrade of spiritual maturity comes with. Not everyone is going to love you, and not everyone is going to like you. In fact, the #bible actually tells us that people will hate you for the stand you take for Christ. (Matt 10:16-33, John 15:18, 2 Tim 2:3-4) But when you understand that ALL things work together for the good of those who love the Lord and were called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28) you’re able to digest those harder lessons. See when someone hates you, it forces you to look at yourself and figure out what it is that they’re seeing that they hate so much. In the words of Bishop Jakes, “folks have hated me on a level I didn’t even know I was on.” Did you catch that tho? Sometimes YOU don’t even fully know the power of the weight of the call and the impact of the anointing God has placed over your life until it causes someone to hate you at a level where they sacrifice moments of their own life just to engage in hating you. There are people in this world who are so miserable in their own lives, instead of fixing what’s wrong with them they invest their time and energy into trying to make other people just as miserable as they are. However, when you can look at yourself and understand exactly what it is that God has given you? When you can get before God and actually genuinely pray for people who do you wrong? You won’t ever spend another moment worried about what someone else may or may not think or say about you because all you will truly care about is at the end of it all hearing the words, “well done my good & faithful servant”.
#Blessed to be a #blessing
I just learned something and I felt compelled to share it with my beautiful readers. Let me back track for a second and tell you that today for me wasn’t exactly ideal. Spent the entire day in the emergency room and about an hour ago noticed that I had a flat tire. For some people that would have been enough to drive them right over the edge and they would have started screaming, swearing, asking “why me?” and all of that. I wasn’t thrilled when I saw the tire however, I realized that it could have been a lot worse. I had actually just added road side assistance to my policy two-weeks ago, my car was at home in my drive way, and I was grateful I didn’t notice it at 6:00 a.m. when I had somewhere to be. I’d like to also point out that this calm, cool, collective individual I am describing as me was not always me, believe me. But the trials and tribulations that allowed God to mold me this way we’ll visit another day during another lesson.
The tow-truck guy gets to my house and all of the sudden I found myself lending an ear as this man poured his entire life out to me as he was changing my tire. I learned that his son was killed in a car accident a few years ago and he suffered a heart attack soon after. He also was letting a friend who is battling cancer live with him and that friend lost his wife to cancer a few years ago. You might be thinking “Wow, that’s not really professional” or “Who cares?”, but that’s not what God wants you to think. See sometimes we get so caught up in what’s happening to us and we as a people have become so self-drama centered that some of us have even lost the ability to feel compassion for other human beings because we can’t think past our own emotions or own situations. Here’s a shocking reality check though, YOU are not that important. I am not that important, WE are all important.
As this man got up to leave, I told him I was sorry I didn’t have any cash on me to tip him and he said, “don’t worry about it”. I told him I will pray for his friend and he looked back at me and said quietly, “Please do, his name is Juan.” I realized that sometimes when things happen to us, even bad things, there is always an opportunity for you to help someone else. We can’t allow ourselves to be so consumed with the little annoyances of life that we end up missing the chance to be a blessing to someone else who may very well be in more need then we are. If you’re a believer, then you fully comprehend exactly what I’m saying. We can’t say that we love God, make witty Facebook or Instagram posts to make people on the internet see how super “spiritual” we are and then miss the chance to share God’s love with someone who needs it just because we’re drowning in our own drama. What that man was carrying in his heart was more important then my stupid tire and maybe all he needed was someone to listen.
A lot of people have their hands held out to receive a blessing but have closed fists when it comes time to be a blessing. Trust me when I tell you that if you want to see the favor of the Almighty move in your life? Be a giver, be a blessing. Stop telling people you love the Lord, SHOW THEM. You can’t be a “boss” if you haven’t learned to be a humble servant and the reason for that is because you can’t experience a divine appointed promotion without being a humble servant. You will always be called to be a server, you will always be required to be humble, you will always be required to think outside yourself. The most amazing thing about all of this is, God is so merciful and gracious that even a non-believer can find evidence of God’s hand on their life simply because they allow themselves to be a blessing to others. We are not animals or savages but if we continue to choose to behave like them then we have nobody but ourselves to blame when we reap the fruit of planting those crops. I used to be one of those mad at the world for everything that went wrong in my life people. It made a world of difference when I started to develop (and I’m still a work in progress) an attitude of gratitude.
I hope this post was a little bit of soul food for you, and if you are a praying person? Please send up a prayer for “Juan” because God is still in the miracle working business.
A+ School Rewards from @stopandshop #CT #MA #RI
Since we’re at the start of a new school year, I wanted to share with you a piece of information that is a great way for anybody to get involved and support the schools in our communities! Stop & Shop stores (primarily located in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island) offer an A+ School Rewards program and it’s open to all schools.
It doesn’t cost you anything, all you have to do is go online to http://www.stopandshop.com/aplus and register your rewards card to the school of your choice. Even if you don’t have school age children, you can still support the school of your choice and hopefully will consider supporting a school in a district where there may be less participants. All schools have faced major blows to their budgets and every time you use your card to do regular grocery shopping, you earn points that Stop and Shop turns into cash for our schools. Schools can use the cash to buy anything that they need (i.e. computers, books, art supplies, gym supplies, etc.). This is a very simple way to make a huge difference in the schools in our communities! Don’t just keep this information for yourself, encourage friends, family members, churches, and other local organizations to get involved!
If you don’t have a Stop and Shop in your State, but know of another grocery retailer that is offering a similar program, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with all the details and we will blog it at no charge!
If there is something great going on to empower your community (regardless of Country or State) email us the details & we’ll share it at no charge!
Risen: The Story of Chron “Hell Razah” Smith
RELEASE: TBA 2016
Dir. Frank Meyer
Music biopic/documentaries go as far back as The Jackson 5, Little Richard, then moving forward to some of the more recent ones like Aaliyah, Nas (Time is Illmatic) and TLC. But never has there been such a Hip Hop biopic that has garnered such success as Straight Outta Compton. Topped the US box office for three consecutive weeks at time of writing this… unheard of for a Hip Hop Biopic feature film. Critically acclaimed reviews across the board including RePPiN4U (Read review here), now other artists want to jump on the bandwagon and popular demand hoping for the same success. Death Row Records, reportedly not happy about the portrayal of their label in the film are reportedly planning to film their production. Gucci Mane claims he wants to create a biopic, and some Wu-fans want a Wu-Tang Clan version…Dr.Dre & Co continue to be…
