A Love Letter to 40 BARRS

What’s poppin’, family?

Ayo, I’m feelin’ this 40 B.A.R.R.S chick…she’s a female battle eMCee from Boston and got bars…bars are lyrics for all you slow muh’fuckas out ‘chea

Peep the "40 for 40 B.A.R.R.S" love letter below, and then peep her most recent battle against Bonnie Godiva on Queen on the Ring at the end of the verse…my baby 40 got bars for DAYS!

Queen of the Ring is a female rap battle league that holds their battles at Zab Judah's gym in East New York, Brooklyn, and is co-founded by Babs Bunny from the MTV's Making of the Band show

Anyway, it's time for the king to get on some romance shit

40 for 40 B.A.R.R.S

40 days, 40 nights when I saw you afar
You’s the chick, that’s the B.eauty A.nd R.appin’ R.avishin’ S.tar
Drunk on your curves like the champagne glasses,
That can never be debated like your undefeated status,

Got me open when you did your thing rhymin’ in that ring,
You the queen so it’s best you're next to a king,

That go together like schemes, personals, punchlines, rebuttals,
Best believe I take the pain away every time I hug you,

Show you that I hold you if you stumble and fumble,
The flow tumble in cold summers I heat you when I meet you,
Greet you when I treat you like a queen before your battle,
To rattle them other bitches I unleash you off the shackles,

And then you come out, the flow gun out,
You dumb out, on lame bitches that’ll die with their tongue out,
I saw you and said, “damn, peep this hottie’s swag,”
You zip ‘em up, we dirty dancin’ over body bags,

BUYAKA BUYAKA sayonara to the soundbwoy,
BARRS over everything I put that on the wedding ring,
The queen and king that's knockin' out the box,
Slow it down, I’m the king that's knockin' out the box,
And it’s real, I keep it one hunnid, no mirage,
Kissin’ hickies on your belly then I give a foot massage,
Back rubs, on some rubba dub dub shit,
Lickin’ your nipples, you wiggle givin’ that love shit,

Your eyes wide closed 'cuz it’s feelin’ like a dream,
Take my time with you like you settin’ up the illest scheme,
Call you on the celly ‘til I run through 40 bars,
Slow it down, feelin’ good runnin’ through in 40 BARRS,

You froze, from head to nose you pose in my bed,
No clothes you chose to let me give it to you ‘til you doze,
I give it to you rough, rugged and raw,
On some G shit, then I flip it gentle and soft,

Lay on top of you whisper freaky shit that’s soundin’ nice,
Make the bed pop and squeak soundin’ like a thousand mice,
And twice, you bussin’ nuts from the fuckin’ and suckin’,
You tappin’ out fast, shakin’ from the pussy eruptions,

The full course meal for your mind, no appetizers,
The protector, the guide, the head, and the provider,
Gimme 40, I’ll give you pearls as your souljah,
I have on crush on you, and I ain’t talkin’ about the soda,

Bombs Over Boston

What’s woody wood, grasshoppers?

Before I blaze the pen to write a love letter to battle eMCee 40 B.A.R.R.S, I wanna talk about my trip to Boston 3 years ago for a book signing at Frugal Books in Roxbury

First of all, I was an hour late…blame the Mega Bus…then again, it was my fault that I was runnin’ on real nigga time since I miscalculated the trip from NY to Beantown

Secondly, I paid 20 bucks for a cab ride from South Station to the Mall of Roxbury on MLK Blvd when I could’ve taken the SL5 bus to the bus terminal in Roxbury instead…and of course, MLK is hood as hell…every MLK boulevard, street, avenue or whatever is the grimiest part of a city

A damn shame considering MLK was all about peace

Anyway…I got to the joint, and saw that Frugal Books is placed inside a mini-mall…I’m not gon’ front, I only sold 3 books…Leonard, the manager of the store, didn’t promote the signing properly…he was cool enough to let me keep his cut of the sales to make up for the fact that my book signing bombed due to the lack of promotion

Shout out to Leonard for doing that when he didn’t have to

I didn’t see anything ordinary besides a heroin addict tryna holla at me at the signing…I can tell she was a looker before the addiction, but shorty wasn’t my cup of henny…I waited at a bus stop in front of the Charlame Park Homes after the signing and took a trip to the heart of Roxbury, Malcolm Little’s old stomping grounds before he got his X

Dudes from that hood knew I wasn’t from there, which is funny because every hood can easily separate the strangers from the familiar faces in a heartbeat

I took a quick trip around Roxbury alone…yep, all by myself like a lion in a jungle …I stand 10 toes solid on my own without walking with a crew on some hyena shit for strength

Aimlessly walking around Roxbury led the king to a thick ol' yella lady with killer hips and a half moon of an ass…

…and I’ll leave it at that for now…LOL

The newly furnished homes in Roxbury spelled gentrification…I see gentrification has stuck its head in Beantown…gentrification is pretty much when a neighborhood increases its land value to move out a group of people to introduce another group of people who can afford the land increase

I got tired of the sight-seeing and stood on Blue Hill Avenue to wait for the bus to take me back to the terminal…an elderly woman pointed to a house where a shooting occurred across the street from the bus stop not too long ago…how fitting that I stood on a notorious block where crack sales and shootings were normal like waking up and taking a piss before you eat breakfast 

Thank God the bus came…the lady who drove the bus was at the book signing earlier that day…she didn’t buy a book, and the heifer had the nerve to tell me…

“I would’ve bought a book if I’d known you were the author of the book signing”

That shit didn’t make any sense because:

A) My table was IN FRONT of Frugal books; anyone with an eye or two could’ve seen me


B) I was the ONLY guy selling books in front of the store

Some people just say shit just to spread hot breath among the air

Besides coming across a few stuck up negro broads in downtown Boston and debating whether to spend the little bit of money I made from sales to see comedienne Sommore at a comedy show, I pretty much had nothing to do while waiting for the Mega Bus to troop me back to NY

Aight, that’s the end of my flashback journey in Boston…I wanted to get my party on, but it’s business over bullshit at the end of the day

Now, on to 40 B.A.R.R.S…that's for the next blog

Food and Sex

What's woody wood, grasshoppers?

Flu season is bumrushing its way to the country, and it's time to fight off the germs and bacteria by eating healthy to boost your immune system, and for guys to get the blood rushing so they can get it up after bustin' that first nut

Your food is your medicine and your medicine is your food...if you're a meat eater, it's good to DETOX to flush out the poisons floating in your body...real talk

Check out the detox and health kits from Tiffany Dionne...I met her @ a fashion show over the weekend...Tiffany was vending with her products and she got some good stuff for the church also known as the human body at the website below or shoot an email @ for more info

7 Ways to Eat Good on a Hood Budget

Stic Man from Dead Prez

What's woody wood, grasshoppers?

Times are hard, and headz feel that eating right means coming more out of the pocket...WRONG!...all you gotta do is set your priorities straight by knowing when and where to eat

Stic Man from the rap group Dead Prez laid out 7 ways to get your eat on the healthy way while keeping some change in your pockets...yeah, eating healthy is generally more expensive than fast food because it's not hard to make fake meat, but spending more dough on your body is more important than rockin' Jordans or those new red bottom shoes that'll get worn out with the gangsta lean in a few months

Peep game below, and then peep the bangin' Dead Prez track "Healthy" know a song is dope when it's about health, but you still find yourself bobbin' to the beat and the lyrics


Words from Stic Man:

In the work I do in promoting holistic health and fitness through the RBG FIT CLUB, I have run into the following sentiment more than a few times: “I want to eat healthier but it’s too expensive!”. Many people are interested in ways to upgrade their diet without breaking their bank. Well, I can dig it. And since I been striving to sustain the healthy grind in my life personally since way back in the food stamp days, I think I may have a few tips to share.

The following are 7 Ways to Eat Good While on a Hood Budget. But bottom line always remember, we can pay now or pay later (in suffering and doctor bills etc) when it comes to our dietary discipline and choices.

1. Choose Produce not Packages: People think eating healthy is about buying a lot of expensive boxes and packages of processed foods, but that isn’t the case at all.

The cheapest most nutrient dense food in a grocery store in the produce isle. Fresh vegetables and fresh fruits. Trying to buy costly packaged goods, potato chips and sugary juices and all kinds of over processed items, even at a health food store is when the budget starts to soar. When we feel we don’t have time to cook we often go for a lot of “quick fix” items like pizzas and pre-cut bags of French fries and stuff like that. That’s where the money adds up. But if you fill your basket with fresh greens and fruits and some basic staples like rice, noodles, beans you will not only have an optimal basket of nutritious foods … you will have saved a great deal of money of the food bill and subsequent doctor bills. Eat real foods and save real money. If you worried the fruits and veggies will spoil before you eat them, read on to number 2!

2. Cook Big and Save Some for Later: Cooking meals in large batches and freezing the leftovers for later in the week or month can save you a lot of time and money.

Instead of buying fast food or eating out at restaurants, or even cooking a full meal every time you get hungry, it’s way more cost effective and time saving and healthy for you to pull something out of the freezer and warm it up than it is to wash/chop/slice/boil/bake/wait in line/wait to be served etc.

Pre-preparing and freezing weekly sized portions of rice or salad choppings or beans etc will simplify your meal duties. Even if you have to do a little cooking you will still save money and time seven days a week. Spend an hour or so over the weekend like on a Sunday evening preparing food for the week. Then, during the week, all you have to do is pull something out of the freezer and heat it up. Them big Ziploc bags ain’t just for the D-boys! Lol

3. Soup Up your Options: Large vegetable soups over brown rice or whole grain noodles pack in vitamins and nutrients, fill you up and are easy to make and delicious. Also Bean burritos, chili, and bean soup can be easy to prepare, cheap and good for you. Going totally meatless a couple of times a week (or for good) also helps your budget and gives your palate a variety to enjoy. Frozen veggies, which are inexpensive, work great in Soups. Nothing compares to that good and filling, good feeling of a hot and hearty bowl of Soup. Cheap, packed with nutrients, easy to prepare. Its the new “Soup-er” food! Lol!

4. Make A Plan and See Where Ya Values Are:. In the hood, in all honesty, We spend a gang of money on cable, hair dos, sneakers, weed, parties expensive bottles of alcohol,video games, big screen tvs, rims, jewelry, strip club tricking, trendy name brand clothes, car accessories, headphones, cigarettes all kinds of overpriced things. But when it comes to our health, we often skimp and look for the cheapest food we can find.

But in our best interest, We have to value our health above all these other things, and make eating healthy a priority in terms of how we spend the resources we have. Makes no sense to be fronting like a rich person on the outside ,but in reality, in poor health on the inside, right? But it’s easy for any of us to make excuses without looking at at a budget, so that’s where budgeting comes in handy.

Budgets help us see where our money is really going not where we feel like its going. Budgeting is also a master ingredient to financial stability in general, so not only will it help identify funds that can be used toward more healthful food choices; its an essential tool to manage our financial responsibilities better in general. Usually when we make a budget we can see plenty of stuff we can do without to make room for healthier eating choices. You may say “shoot, I dont make enough money to budget it!” lol, but you don’t have to make a lot of money to benefit from budgeting. Budgeting helps what ever we make stretch farther and get more of what we truly value out of what we have. When we values ourselves more than our things we make healthier choices. Budget, prioritize and prosper.

5. Season your Food: Eat fruits and vegetables that are in season, that is! Otherwise you’ll be paying a much higher price. For example, if you live in the north east United States and you want some watermelon in the middle of the Winter of December, it’s gonna have to be shipped from where ever it is in season to your local market and you pay that extra cost. Also, eating foods that are current in their natural growing season helps strengthen your immune system for that season. Seasonal Fruits can be frozen and blended to smoothies. Frozen vegetables also can be used to make a stir fry. They’re convenient and they don’t spoil quickly like fresh fruits and veggies.

6. Join a Co-op or Local Community Garden: You get discounts on your groceries by being a member of grocery store co-ops. In exchange for your minimal volunteer work hours per month, you get your groceries at Co-op member’s only price. Same thing goes for community gardens. And not only that you get to learn a WHOLE lot about nutrition and health being in that kind of environment.

There are many urban farm movements popping up all over the place where folks are going back to the land, utilizing whatever small plots there are right in the hood, to grow food. Participating with these farms are awesome ways to educate ourselves on growing food. Also, there are usually harvest markets where the food is sold for really affordable prices and you can get first dibs by being a community member. Places like DTown Farms and Freedom Freedom in Detroit and Truly Living Well Farms and Habesha Gardens in Atlanta are great examples of gardens in the hood that you can google and “dig” into! If you have even the smallest plot of land in your yard growing your own food from heirloom seeds (non-gmo varieties) is also another way to save on the grocery bills while mastering a very useful and fun survival skill.

My wife Afya, has been a great source of inspiration in this area in our household. You can Follow her instagram (@AfyaIbomu) blog to see our latest harvests. And last but certainly not least….

7. Drink more water. Many times we think we are hungry, it may be actually a sign of thirst.

The fact that it is recommended by holistic healers and medical experts alike that we drink half our body weight in ounces of water each day, it’s safe to say many of us are chronically dehydrated and as Rocko’s song lyric says “we don’t even know it”. When we are drinking enough water it curbs our appetite so we don’t over eat. Drinking water also says us money on all the sugary drinks on the market that are often what we choose to wet our whistles due to the drug effect of the high sugar, high fructose corn syrup content of most beverages sold in the hood. We can save our money and our internal organs by saying no to the liquid sugar caffiene crack juice aka sodas and artificial energy drinks and just sip on nature’s good old original elixir -H20!

oh…Bottle water getting too expensive? Get a basic filter for your tap, some for as low as $20 bucks and like Kendrick Lamar’s song says “pour up, drank!”
