Anonymous asked: Hima, I'd really like to get educated about positive energy. Are there any books you can suggest?

YOU COULD CHECK OUT BOOKS ON MINDFULNESS BUT POSITIVE ENERGY IS ABOUT MORE THAN READING BOOKS THE CLOSEST WE HAVE TO IT IN EARTH MORE THAN ANY HUMAN CAN SHINE IS THE OCEAN, THE GREATEST BOOK THERE IS, WRITTEN IN A LANGUAGE OF WAVES, STROKES STRUCK WITH THE PEN OF GOD HERSELF

jean-luc-gohard asked: You got any studios you recommend in Brooklyn, Queens, or Manhattan? I'm tryna get back to work on my mixtape but don't know where to record at.

BATALVI - SWET SHOP BOYS - HEEMS X RIZ MC

Oh damn. Yep they dropped it. ‘Batalvi’ is the ultimate mashup featuring the haunting vocals of the great Punjabi poet Shiv Kumar Batalvi, classic Bollywood dance clips and heavy-hitting verses filmed on Facetime. 

Both MCs offer blended perspectives of their home-cities and the distant lands from which their parents trekked, a lens that consistently offers something different, if not better—first-generations anywhere can relate.” - Fader Magazine

Check out the dope EP that dropped yesterday too! Too much to handle!

SWET SHOP BOYS OUT AND ABOUT

SWET SHOP BOYS OUT AND ABOUT

iflewbikes:

Heems - NYC Cops


He had the badge ID covered in black tape (covered)

Irish dude spends his weekends in blackface (a weirdo!)

Smacking Immigrants, asking them how the crack taste (Guatamalans!)

Mushed his pregnant wife face while she lactate (a bad man!)

Over-overseeing the rat race

Goes to Cape Cod when Manhattan feels too fast paced

Now he hate God, disgraced, odd and out of place

And he takes it out on us (his experience)

Victor told me what happened with them BART cops

Told ‘em, “Yo, I ain’t ever met a smart cop” (they’re idiots)

Alec said no one heard of you like a cool cop

In ‘01 almost shot the fair one with a school cop

Heema for Louima cause they could have did’d me wrong (I’m brown!)

That’s word to Eleanor Bumpurs in a Lou Reed song

Protect and serve, keep from the way of harm

Timothy Stansbury was 19 and unarmed

[Hook x2]

Ayo, fuck the New York pricks and dicks

Who wanna be a cop but a power hungry idiot?

The worst people!

New York cops are the worst!

[Verse 2]

Oy vey, these guys is New York’s spineless

Strangled and denied it for Anthony Baez

They was cruel, maybe had a pool, probably

That was ‘94, he was one of three bodies (unarmed)

Ernest Sayon (unarmed)

And Johnnie Cromartie (unarmed)

Under Giuliani, well, they had them a party (bang bang!)

In ‘73, there were riots in Queens (Jamaica)

When they merked Clifford Glover, he wasn’t even a teen (a child!)

Used to be nine, he had just turned ten (a child!)

Pig said, “Die, you little fuck” and got off clean (yup)

And ain’t a thing that these bars do

That can make up for the pain of the family of Fermin Arzu

They the ones who always put the firearms pon you (on you!)

But shoot and say they thought you had a gun up in the car, dude (there’s no gun, no gun)

Ousmane Zongo ‘03, Diallo in like ‘99

I swear this shit happen like 90 times definitely

Definitely happens, like, plenty times

But it’s documented, like, 20 times

Well, Randolph Evans, well —

[Hook/Verse 3]

Randolph Evans was 15 in 1976

And a cop did two years for shooting him

One time, point blank in the head

And thirty years later exactly, on his wedding day

Four officers (in Queens) shot 50 bullets

And Sean Bell was, uh, dead

Veteran detective Oliver, two magazines, no remorse, geez, man!

Gescard Isnora

Basquiat ‘81, Irony of Negro police, man

Back in the day on the train Dap was G’in a Cremaster poster

Guyanese cop look like me (speedin’!)

Rolled up, plainclothes tucked, gun in the holster

Said not to do that. It bugged me out

They could look like me, too?

Y2K Grand Wizard Giuliani wasn’t done

Bad boys, bad boys took Patrick Dorismond

Plainclothes asking him where to cop tree

Shot him one time and didn’t have to flee

Well, yo, it was an accident, see

And once again the boys in blue got off scott free

(“Well, I’m white, sooo…I own this place?”)

No rap?

Alberta Spruill was 57 and didn’t leave her home

They tossed a concussion grenade into her living room

And scared her to death

I never felt safer

Its bugged out that they’re supposed to make you feel safer

(“Well, I’m a white cop, so I own this… world?”)

Heems awn like em, Radio Raheem don’t like em

(“Uh, yeah, well, I’m white, soooo…”)

And Michael Stewart who do art under the ground

Got found and laid down by

Eleven white cops that pound

-ed him for thirty-two minutes between arrest and delivery (they played with the paperwork!)

Alive and barely breathing, to dead in ‘83

Radio Raheem (Spike Lee!)

I don’t fuck with cops!

Its Heems!

Getting advice from the original Himanshu Suri, Gireesh Suri.

The function, the very serious function, of racism is distraction. It keeps you from doing your work. It keeps you explaining, over and over again, your reason for being. Somebody says you have no language, so you spend twenty years proving that you do. Somebody says your head isn’t shaped properly, so you have scientists working on the fact that it is. Somebody says you have no art, so you dredge that up. Somebody says you have no kingdoms, so you dredge that up. None of that is necessary. There will always be one more thing.
