@Golgatha w/Young Joker T File under: interview

(Anatomy of a Zine)

Prison yards are full of the usual divided pockets of subcultural groups, the burple dudes, the
table gamers, the dialoguers, and then there's the prison tribes, and street tribal cats, the racial
thing is also noticable. And then there's Me and Joker and the rest of the rappers and a few
singers, beatboxers, tables DJ's, yall know, Prison HipHop Society, separated, together.

(The Tone)

Deathrow's Rhyme slingers and ink spillers will pop a verse at eachother, on site, in passing,
it's just what we do, so for this NGR series issue vol, 2, I caught young joker at yard recall,
walking past the cell I'm in, and shot at him with one of our 30 second spit fire freestyle
ciphers, because yard recall is a quick step around here, and, the officers be tripp'n about
stopp'n at the homies cells. The following is titled:

XZ:
Society fak'n like they don't comprehend
a lil nigga'z passion
so now where do we begin
at the constitution, or where
the star spangled banner iz lack'n?

JK:
When politicians sat down on the floor
they called it a major civil action
when a black football player sat down
because that song aint about lil
niggaz next door, they called him a
major distraction.

XZ:
For every action theres a reaction
all of a sudden those wordz don't
apply to Micah in Dallas that went
Kenneth Cole on they asses
and got unlisted reaction crack'n.

JK:
Anglosaxin'z killin Latin'z and Blackz and
gett'n paid leave, maxin and relaxin
don't appear to me, to be an equal transaction

XZ:
Kill'n nigga'z da chase iz on, dogz track'n
squeez'n trigga'z at my blackness,
99% police corruption practices.

JK:
Pulse on some Bolt shit
bullets in my back
police body camera broken, shit,
nobody captured that
runnin to my sista'z house
where everybody iz black
we're almost where dem nigga'z fire back
gotta go, here dey come....

(No clean hands)

JK: Its easy to write about police brutality cause its what we have been and
continue to be faced with along with a host of other things but there is a
phrase being used that leaves me to question if "Black Lives Matter" see thats
the phrase I'm refering to "Black Lives Matter" but who do they matter to?
Now how can we stop the police from killing us when blacks kill just as
many blacks as they do. Don't get me wrong, I love my people but I have
to ask how does anything change if we can't respect and treat our own as
equal so we can stand together and fight the greater evil as much as I hate
the fact we are constantly mistreated the simple truth is we must get our
own house in order before we can point the finger. I've oftern had this image
that has me seeing this vivid vision where every black person is on the same
page and we are moving with military precision like Micah in Dallas. Now

be some casualties and even some resistance but I'm willing to bet we will
reach an understanding with our oppressor and police brutality will no
longer be our reality. I have turned my pen on us as a people so we can
begin to be my brothers keeper and that has to start with the man in the
mirror. It's as simple as this, united we stand, divided we continue to fall.

Bible dictionary and concordance:

Micah, book of, a prophetic book of the same name. The first section is
about the judgment of the Lord upon Samaria and Jerusalem (1:1-9).
The judgment is based on the violence and greed of the wealthy, who
do not care for the poor (2:1-13). The second section (3-5) continues
to charge the guilty. Zion is to be "plowed as a field" (3:1-12). But the
prophet also has hope for his chastised people (4:1-5:1). He looks to
the Deliverer (5:2-15). In the last section he exhorts to repentance.

"I wrote this song for all the young homies that was abandoned by one or both parents,
abused physically, sexually, and emotionally by community, exiled them to
homelessness on the streets of America's innercities, seeing Gods so-called people,
go on global missions, taking many resources and blessings in the name of love and
care and ministry, to foreign countries, and not spend one nano-second with the
youth in their own communities, where the visiting roomz of juvenile detention centers
and priosn are empty, because demons convinced our own people, to vote in favor of
anti-innercity youth designer laws, and for these that know, there are no clean hands
when it comez to black on black, or police on black crimes, where the purchase of a mirror
makes for a wise investment." -Xzyzst

XZ:

Me and Joker have been exchanging verses like this for years,
and covering all topics, I must say that there is an element of
horror associated with the need to express the reality of
the conditions of america that people will view as negative or
inciting, or both, when the truth is, that these words
are the reality of inner city youth in this country.

How about this, Micah is one of the 66 books of the Bible,
a prophetic book written by Micah himself.

The irony for America, is that the Micah in Dallas was called
a mentally ill, lone wolf, with no true direction of his
critical denouncment of how American innercity youth are
being killed by police.

Yet, the Micah in the bible also openly denounced the social
injustice of the Kingdoms, with a clear message of Judgment,
based on the violence, and greed of the wealthy, who do not
care for the poor. I'm no bible thumper, but even this moves
me to concider the word "care", through Micah's disposition.
