JAYZ performs Nipsey Hussle "Tribute Freestyle" at Webster Hall. I am posting this because the message is so powerful... I didn't want you all to miss it. I going to help you listen to the music so you don't just skim through it.
As usual, Mr. Shawn "JAYZ" Carter drops gem after gem. The opener... "Gentrify your own hood before these people do it / claim eminent domain and have your people move in...".
He is saying, rebuild your community before "them people" do it... them people referring to the colonizers... we know this because his next line states to claim eminent domain. Which is...
To tie it all together, in other RECLAIM YOUR LAND because your ancestors weren't JUSTLY COMPENSATED for the land... America. He not telling you to go back to Africa. He is telling you that America is home.
How do we know this? In the next line he explains, "that's a small glance into what Nipsey was doing / for anybody still confused as to what he was doing...".
Nipsey was buying up "the hood". The Marathon store, the building, he owned it. He employed people who couldn't get a job coming from prison. He was invested in various real states projects that would "gentrify" his "hood", and bring peace and prosperity back to the community. He was putting value back into the neighborhood. He was active in stopping senseless gang violence.
Nipsey used his platform to raise awareness as he said on his song "Fucc Em" featuring Freeway & Cuzzy Capone, "n*ggas buying yachts / n*ggas buying jets / make me wanna buy the block / just to re-invest / hope my young n*ggas catch it fo' (before) its nothing left...".
JAY then breaks down the plan of the colonizers. "The neighborhood designed to keep us trapped / they red-line us / so property declines / if you live by BLACKS / they depress the asset / then take the property back / IT'S A RUTHLESS... but a genius plan in fact..."
Are you following the message? First, your land was stolen. Then after it was stole, they set up these "Social Constructs" i.e. the "projects" and turned communities into "hoods". Communities run themselves from top to bottom. They control the all the policies that dictate way of life from education to policing (enforcing policy). The TRAP!
Does your "hood" or your "project" control the way of life for your people, or is the people's way of life dictated by an outside influence? You're not really a community if you are not in control.
JAY then explains why the value of the land is calculated... it declines if you live by BLACKS. Those with study know that at law, black is colorable term... meaning that it is something that is purported to be real, appearing to be real although not necessarily true.
If so called "black" people have no country of origin where their name is derived, THEY ARE NOT THAT PEOPLE because that people does not exist. Hence, the term BLACK as is refers to a person or a people is COLORABLE. So called negroes and blacks were Americans, therefore they can't be what they are purported to be.
I know a lot of you are thinking that... it's not really that deep my brother... but it is. This is politics. The business that runs the planet. And while JAY may not be able to be say this directly, he does so through his art. I am just helping you see the picture.
Here are some more "colorable" terms... so you can become familiar with what is and what isn't . You can't see the matrix if you don't know you're in one.
Do you see that the laws that govern so called black people are colorable, and in fact COUNTERFEIT, FEIGNED, FRAUD?
JAY then brings it full circle by saying, "they depress the asset / and take the property back..." i.e. GENTRIFICATION... "It's a RUTHLESS... but a genius plan in fact." If you understand how the colonists used the pen to legally, but UNLAWFULLY steal the land inheritance (Real Estate) of the indigenous Americans by branding them negro, black, colored, Native American etc... (making them non-descend-able) and stealing the land through what is called escheat, then gentrification, and what happened and is happening makes a lot more sense. Study.
There are so many layers to this message that it would take days to explain it. Hopefully, you are starting to see the picture. I could spend all day on this... but unfortunately I can not. Listen to the how JAY uses the crab in the barrel metaphor to explain some basic principles of life. The way he flips being "the plug" and having a plan... genius.
All I can say from here is that... the messages are there. This is just a dope (connotatively speaking) 3 minutes of hip hop. You should listen.
