I never heard of PNB Rock until his brutal untimely death, however, I definitely have danced to his song that sings in the chorus “every day we lit, you can’t tell me shit, remember I was broke, now I’m getting rich”. In fact, when I was dancing to his song, I was residing outside of one of the most dangerous cities in America. Baltimore City. However, I was from the suburbs of North Carolina, and pretending to be a thug and a gangster. Around this time of my life, I was probably still listening to destructive rap music, however, I had discovered the teachings of Dr. Neely Fuller Jr. Therefore, as I was probably engaged in the lyrics, and the melody of the music, I knew deep down inside we were a lost people that had been bamboozled by the masses. I sit here and think about the interview PNB Rock did before he passed away.
In fact, the brainwashing of Hip Hop/Rap/Thug Culture is so detrimental and destructive, out of all the years of education I have received, I still have not completely stop listening to what I refer to as “death” music. A couple glasses of alcohol, and at the age of 40, I still find myself listening to “death” music. At least, it’s not daily like it was most of my life. I watched an interview with DJ Akademiks and PnB Rock regarding him almost being killed in Los Angeles a few months ago. “A lack of Education” is the only thing I could possibly think of when I was listening to PnB Rock’s responses to DJ Akademiks questions, and statements regarding being almost robbed and killed in Los Angeles a few months ago. A Lack of Education” is the only thing I could blame his ignorance on. I feel that if he had just the slightest education from Dr. Neely Fuller Jr., PnB Rock would have known not to be residing in Los Angeles, especially, since it’s known currently as one of the deadliest cities right now regarding murder, robberies, and crime.
Dr. Neely Fuller Jr, presumes that “blacks must stay away from each other unless they are doing something constructive”. I hate to admit it, but I think he is right. After moving back home from Baltimore, MD after ten years, I assumed my friends and family were going to be proud of me. However, I was wrong. They were jealous. According to Dr. Neely Fuller Jr, White Supremacy has essentially made us hate each other. I hate to admit it but he’s right. I woke up this morning and suspects have been revealed regarding the PnB Rock murder case. The suspect that is still at large is around my age, at least that’s how old he looks. I’m 40. According to the article and some word-of-mouth knowledge, I gained on the street today, the 40 year old’s son is the trigger man. However, this may not be true.
The look on the 40-year-old’s face literally is just a display of anger and hate. This anger and hate that resides in the Black community comes from the brainwashing of hip hop and thug culture. In the Black community we are raised to glorify rap, sports, and more rap and “death music”. In fact, in the Black community you are frowned upon if you cannot recite these deadly lyrics perfectly. It’s like a badge of honor if you can master the thug image, and the lifestyle that comes with being a thug. We don’t master computer science, the bible, or anything that makes sense. Am I speaking of all Blacks in our community? Of course not. However, most young Black boys and girls are taught to learn these destructive lyrics and behaviors that come with the thug lifestyle. Therefore, I am not surprised PnB Rock’s responses to DJ Akademiks questions and statements regarding PnB Rocks safety after being nearly robbed and killed a few months ago.
“Keeping it Real” is the motto in Black America. “Checking in”, “no snitching”, are the new idiotic mottos that is taught to our young boys and girls at the age they should be learning basic grammar, arithmetic, and computer science. PnB Rock lost his life due to “keeping it real”. Rappers and even just citizens of the Black community feel that they have to frequent dangerous areas even if they are not even a native of the land they are frequenting. This idiotic way of thinking comes from the “death music” and “death culture” that has been pumped down our heads since we were kids and teens. It’s truly sad. It has led to the death of Tupac, Biggie Smalls, Pop Smoke, Mo3, Freaky Ty, Jam Master J, and many more. Will it ever stop? Probably not. PnB Rock should have purchased a home in Northern California in the hills of Malibu. However, the brainwashing of thug culture literally has driven us to the point of being bored in a city like Malibu. Crime is exciting in Black America. Being close to dangerous area is exciting and thought of as “the way of life” in Black America. Nipsey Hussle died behind this way of thinking as well.
Lastly, I am going to repeat myself. It is critical that all African American young men and women study the teachings of Dr. Neely Fuller Jr. However, the poison of trap music culture has blinded African Americans so badly, that the average young Black boy or man who is brainwashed by this culture will laugh at you if you try to educate them on the teachings of Neely Fuller Jr. My people are so lost in thug culture, that we have become clueless what the finer things in life are. I work in higher education at an HBCU, one of my students is in the computer lab studying and doing homework with “ MONEY BAG YO” blasting. How can you study, learn, and attain knowledge with music blasting, let alone Trap Music or should I say again, death music?
PnB Rock was brainwashed by this culture that has destroyed Black men and women for decades. Sadly, none of the millionaire rappers like Jay-Z has come out and said “ hey, it’s all bullshit”. In fact, now the media and entertainment world is using him as if he’s some sort of financial guru who has a PhD in Finance from Yale. It’s a down right shame and disgrace. These rappers make millions of dollars and the media sends them back to us when they’re in their fifties as if they’re leaders of our community.
Lord Help us.
