Manifest 101

R.I.P. to Keith Elam aka Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal who passed away on April 20, 2010. Anyone who is a fan of Hip Hop music from the 1990’s knows how important his contributions were to the legacy of the culture. Guru and DJ Premier, who arguably headed one of the best Hip Hop duo’s ever under the name GANGSTARR turned out some truly remarkable music. They are to this day world renowned for the use of eclectic jazz samples and rhythmic poetry that was always a step above the rest. With Guru’s lyric dexterity and Premier’s superb beat production they left an indelible mark on many a music listener. Baldhead Slick you will truly be missed…ONE::

are but
a few times
when it seems
Hip Hop has been
aligned with past
present and future…

…the end result being
a timeless
culmination that
forever sounds
as fresh as
when it first blessed the ears

with ancestral cadences
set to the echoes of
concrete dreams that
showed global nations a
Planet Will Rock
and Don’t Stop
while giving birth


who with his
Premier DJembe
gave US
the possibilities
of soaring beyond
tenement veracity
to spray paint
OUR souls
in hallowed spaces
Above the Clouds.
