QTP: Peace Sneak!

QTP: For those of you that don’t know, Sneak Vandel is one of my new favorite people (mostly because he’s nuts) but also happens to be a brilliant producer and an official Ghetto Govt member. Sneak, tell the people about yourself, because you do more then just produce.

SNEAK: Glad you added “brilliant” in there or I wasn’t gonna answer this question. Lol

I’m a former gospel artist and that’s where I started my hip-hop career. I put a few records out in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. After a going thru some family things I decided to retire from that aspect of life. After a brief hiatus I started producing to ease my way back into hip-hop. I did a few local albums with some emcees from around my way and mastered my craft. To date I’m a producer,emcee, graphic artist and loyal member of GGO.

QTP: We have all seen the Wu-Tang tattoo, who are some of the Clan affiliates you have worked with in the past and are working with now?

SNEAK: The tattoo is homage to Wu because of their influence on me since 36 chambers. And the fact that they are and always will be the greatest group in hip-hop. I’ve recently just started working with Clan affiliates so my résumé isn’t THAT extensive. I was featured on Judah Priest Sleepy Hollow album on World War 4. I’ve contributed 5 or 6 tracks to his new album also. I know I have work I need to do for Buddha Monk and BKZU. I’m just taking it as it comes ya know…

QTP: I possibly may have heard a rumor that you are creating some sort of masterpiece beat for a collab track with Wu-Tang Affiliate Judah Priest (Brooklyn Zu/ Ghetto Govt) and the infamous Queentheprophet.  Can you confirm or deny such a rumor?

SNEAK: A tru master never gives up his secrets. But it is possible that those wheels are turning. Lol

QTP: You’re working on some things with Razah as well right?

SNEAK: Yeah me and Razah have been building and I have been constructing some heaterz for dude. He’s always been one of my favorite Clan brethren. So I’m excited to be collaborating with him. And I look to do a lot more with him in the future. WINGZ UP!

QTP: What other projects are you working on music & otherwise?

SNEAK: Right now my focus is on Razah and what he needs to complete his work. I don’t like to muddy the waters and take on too many projects at once. I like to focus on an artist so I can deliver quality music to them. Too many cat JUST put out whatever they can, very few put out quality.

QTP: To-date what has been your most memorable project?

SNEAK: My first studio album. It was with a group called Raiderz of the Lost and the album was Prepare for the Spillage. It was at that point that I was able to do music full tilt. Touring was dope and I met a lot of chill people. Plus it was my first world wide distributed album. Side note: that was when I met Judah Priest also.

QTP: That will change after we work together though right?

SNEAK: Depends on if you keep giving me a hard time. Lol

QTP: Is there anyone you really want to work with that you haven’t already? (besides me of course)

SNEAK: I like how most of these questions somehow involve you too. Lol!  Guess that’s why you’re the Queen.

I’d love to do work with Killah Priest, Gza, RA the Rugged Man, and any of the core WTC members. I’d also like to do work for a Sunz of Man reunion album (hint hint).

QTP:  Anything else you want folks to know?

SNEAK: I’m white…

Sike nah….

No really…I’m a white dude.

NEVER GIVE UP by @queentheprophet

images

Greetings Fam!

Peace and blessings. I want to talk about something that every person in the world needs to hear. Let’s talk about not giving up. Life can deal us all curve balls that we weren’t expecting and sometimes those curveballs come from our own karma. The thing that we forget most is that God is not a genie in a bottle. When you pray for things like faith, God does not wave a magic wand and boom you have faith. Situations which will allow you to test your faith and make your faith strong pop up.

images (5)

When you have something in your heart that you can’t go a day without thinking about, never give up. It does not matter what it looks like on the outside. We as human beings are impatient. We want everything here and now, and when it doesn’t go the way WE THINK it should go, too often times we assume it’s not working. In actuality what appears to be a set-back is normally a set-up for something even greater if you hang on.

download

I have found (the hard way, because simply I am hardheaded… yea I know, I’m working on it) that in any of my tornado of situations, that how we are responding to the test is exactly what predicts the outcome of the reward. Think about it, have you ever been sorry in the long run that you took the high road in a situation as opposed to reacting in temporary emotion? Fam, people are mean, people lie on you, people are nasty, and I’m sorry but that is just a part of life. We cannot control other people, but we can absolutely control ourselves. If you allow it to anger you, it controls you.

images (4)

If you lay down with pigs you’re gonna get dirty. You can’t be mad any anyone but yourself that you jumped in a pig pen. Too often times we forget to accept the personal responsibility in situations, even the ones that aren’t necessarily your fault. I’m going to share this with you, because quite honestly it’s the best exsample I can think of and if it helps one person? It was worth it. I got married in my early twenties and it was a disaster. I got married for all the wrong reasons. I was in church and I thought I was on my way to hell and I had to marry the person I was living with. That was one of the stupidest things to-date that I have ever done. The marriage ended in divorce and it wasn’t technically my fault because my former husband cheated on me continuously.

images (2)

Here’s the thing though, I got over it not because of divorce and not because years later I got an apology. I got over it because I learned that I played a part in it too. I got married for the wrong reasons. I knew my X-husband was a terrible boyfriend, and it was nobody’s fault but MINE that he was turned into a terrible husband. I knew full well what it was when I did it, I did it anyway. If you can get raw with yourself infront of the mirror and accept the part that you played and throw that pride in the trash? I promise that you will find yourself getting over things faster and healing. The evidence of healing is you stop talking about it every time somebody scratches that surface. If every time somebody puts a quarter in your slot and you start running your mouth? You’re not over it.

download (1)

You can’t give up on things no matter how grim they may appear. FEAR= FALSE EVIDENCE APPEARING REAL. Don’t give up on love, don’t give up on life, don’t give up on your dreams, and NEVER give up on yourself.

Be Blessed –

How to tell if a person TRULY loves God by @queentheprophet

light

Greetings Fam!

I have missed blogging! Been very busy lately with the music & travel, but I think we’re all long over due for a QTP blog. I know that “religion” is a touchy subject for people and that’s why I don’t talk about religion. I actually don’t believe in “religion”. The word religion in my humble opinion is a trap. It fools the people of God into dividing themselves in to denominations where they then argue about things that don’t even matter. My question to all those religious people is, if you’re fighting each other… who’s fighting the devil? *cue the crickets*

love

Funny, people don’t like to acknowledge a devil and that’s fine, but how can you deny there is an evil in this world that is just not natural? Who consciously would walk into a school and shoot children? What kind of mother would harm her own children? What kind of father would touch his own child in an inappropriate manner? Mental Illness? Shut up. I have an extensive background in Social Services and a formal education. You can fool yourself into making up illnesses for evil all you want, but there are somethings that are EVIL. Now, don’t misinterpret this, the person is not evil. People are not born evil, they can learn and develop evil ways but the person (the soul inside) is not evil.  We call come into this world the same way and are impacted by environmental circumstances that shape, mold, and develop our character. I do not believe in calling a human being evil, if they don’t know any better. Someone should knowing better and actually knowing better are two different things. How could someone know better, if they were never shown better? Think about it. Everyone’s reality is different. Your reality is based on your personal perception of your life, your experiences, and your circumstances. Sure we share certain “norms” in common, but the truth of the matter is every single one of us is a unique character.

angel

With that uniqueness though there is a fool proof way to tell if a person has the love of God in their heart. The answer is how they treat people. Period, point blank, end of story. Nobody is perfect Fam, not one of us. But the regular behavior of an individual towards other people on a consistent basis is a good indicator how connected to God they are. How do you tell fruit trees apart? If it’s an apple tree it has apples and if it’s a crab apple tree it has crab apples. Even in that, a crab apple tree doesn’t always have to be a crab apple tree. You can always plant a new tree and start over, but you must first make sure you take out all of the roots, no matter how deep they have grown, then plant a new tree. *light bulb moment*

love 2

There is a lot of bad ugly that goes on in this world. We may not be able to control everything, but we can certainly control ourselves. If a million people gave me a dollar, I’d have a million dollars. If you truly want to spread God’s love, judging people, kicking them out of church because they don’t wear the right clothes, or whacking them upside the head with the bible isn’t going to work. Incase you haven’t noticed, this world is DESPERATLEY in the need of love. If you want to show people that God loves them, then you love them. Let your conduct define your character.

Be blessed-

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE @queentheprophet GHETTO GOVT 1st Lady #TEAMQUEEN #DaughtersOfZion calls 4 old cell phones

0033f15f

Greeting Fam-

As some of you may or may not know, I am a certified Battered Women’s Counselor as well as a  survivor of Domestic Violence. In 2005, I lost a very special friend at the hands of her husband. He stabbed my friend multiple times and killed her… because she wouldn’t give him money for drugs. You didn’t know Adrienne, but I did. She was always smiling. She worked with people with disabilities and just like a human service professional, linked up with a man that needed her help too. She loved the Lord and was one of those people that if you asked her to pray, she’d stop and do it. I remember when I told her I was getting married… she left work, went home and got her wedding dress and made me try it on in the office. That was the last time I saw her.

coffinposter

October is Domestic Violence Awareness month and although it’s a few months away, it’s never too early to get started. Old cell phones are used by DV shelters and hotlines to offer victims (both male & female victims) a safety plan. The phones can only dial 911 and are often the link that saves lives.

DV

On behalf of Ghetto Govt #TeamQueen Daughters of Zion, I will be collecting old cell phones from now until 10/3/13 to donate to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. If you would like to donate a phone or collect multiple phones to donate, please email queentheprophet@hotmail.com put DV PHONES in the subject line.  If you are in need of help and have questions about where you can get it, (In Connecticut) dial Infoline 211 for 24/7 crisis counselors and referral specialists.

Outside of Connecticut, contact the NATIONAL COALITION AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.
