When You Have Heroes as Friends: @SaintTheGoodBoy & Jesse James Saves the Day

Friday, September 7, 2018 King James (Jesse Stringer) and Saint “The Good Boy” (Lennell Davis) was looking for a party during after hours when they approached 79th Phillips and seen a building on fire.

I was told by a source that The Chicago Fire Department was on location and did not immediately respond to the fire. That’s what sparked both guys to go into the building on a rescue mission. Source reported that Jesse asked the Fire Fighters what were they waiting on to go into the building and one of the Fire Fighters responded by allegedly telling him to “go ahead and go in”.

I received a call from Saint shortly after they finished the rescue. For more information on the story, click link here, to get CBS2 Chicago’s account. They awkwardly produced their story deliberately stating that the The Chicago Fire Department’s Fire Fighters immediately responded, when I was told by a source, who was present, that they did not.

Nonetheless, it’s great to know that I have great friends/humans around who will sacrifice to ensure the well being of others. They could have kept riding and assumed that because the Chicago Fire Department was present they would take care of it. This is a good example of leadership and being an active citizen.

@KanyeWest Out Here Checking @Forbes , for his Billionaire Accomplishment

Ye is really from a “tribe called check a hoe”, that is Chicago. Two of hip hop’s first billionaire artist are from New York and Chicago. What a wonderful time to be alive.

According to Forbes, Ye is worth 1.3 Billion United States 🇺🇸 Dollars 💵 but according to Ye, since he claims they can’t count, he’s worth 3.3 Billion. Allegedly Kanye reached out to Forbes after they published their annual billionaires list, according to Shade Room, because they didn’t put him on it.

He texted a staff member saying “You know what you’re doing”, adding to the conversation, “You’re toying with me and I’m not finna lye [sic] down and take it anymore in Jesus name”

“Forbes journalist Zack O’Malley Greenburg explained that when the magazine featured West on the cover of the magazine last year, they didn’t label him a billionaire.”, according to CNN.

In conclusion, it seems that he was undervalued if they didn’t label him a billionaire and he had to come forward with the receipts 🧾 to receive credit for his claim. Regardless, Ye is a Billionaire, that’s facts, and he wants the world 🌎 to know.

Chicago’s Legend in Making @FBG_DUCK Has Self-Confessed Chicago’s Legends

FBG Duck, a Chicago Musical Illustrator, published a video recorded by Money Strong TV on his channel two days ago on Dec. 7, 2019; and with the apparent loss of legends from the City of Chicago, who are without a doubt gone too soon because of various tragic situations; he proclaims their affects in and on culture. In his illustrated story he mentions Jojo, Pappy, Zack TV, Lil Marc, Dooski, Nuski, Fredo Santana, LA Capone, Lil Mister, and Smylez. With the current loss of another great Chicago Legend Juice Wrld; and Famous Dex being recently hospitalized to recover from seizures, there is no concrete word if he has been released, there is much to be concerned about.

The murder and drug epidemic of Chicago has depreciated the circulation of producers in culture from the city, putting the ideas out there to be mocked by upcoming or lurking seasoned artist to develop from other markets. Every artist mentioned has a different level of success, impact, trade, and skill that contributed to the identity of who Chicago is in the urban culture world. A legend is someone who creates or develops a traditional story, who taps into their genius, and sculps a path for others to follow or to observe only to be influenced by their impact. No matter how well known the legend is globally, it can be very well known in pockets or wide areas to be proclaimed a legend.

This brings attention to the social issues that we need to solve in Chicago, and beyond, that deal ultimately with poverty, civic engagement, health, and the brotherhood of humanity. His piece of art pushes towards conversations that need to be had to better our community and restore unity between the gangs or just those who are conflicted and need to heal in order to let go of past conflicts or traumas. In the words of FBG Duck, “just to show yourself a better you”, is worth the participation in helping leaders like him carry messages like this far and wide in the diaspora to help appreciate the progress made in the culture.

I’d like to send love and light to all of the families of our lost and slain ones, even those we lost to non violent tragic situations because we are all still suffering from a bigger issue. Our health, wealth, and our mind state suffers or take constant hits (Urban Dark Hue Beings) because we are in a constant state of oppression while walking dead. We must prescribe a remedy to our ignorance, discipline ourselves, and love one another because the world is depending on it. We are depending on it. You existence is dependent on it.

We don’t die we multiply, so rest peacefully Juice Wrld , Jojo, Pappy, Zack TV, Lil Marc, Dooski, Nuski, Fredo Santana, LA Capone, Lil Mister, and Smylez . We love and wish you all where still among us but we will continue to push y(our) energy, that will never be destroyed, into the world with love.

@Avengers EndGame #NoSpoilers #Review #MustSee @BPOPETV #MarvelMovieMarathon

The marketing for this movie is beyond dope. Brandon Pope, “the only Reporter in Chicago and 1 out of 3 Reporters internationally” was apart of the 59-hour Marvel Marathon of 22 films, and his peers in the event had this to say about the Marvel media flow:

#BPOPESENDGAME #MarvelMovieMarathon

According to Rolling Stone, the Marvel journey is comprised of 11 years and 22 movies ending with Avengers Endgame released April 26, 2019, becoming the ultimate follow up to Infinity Wars.

The Avengers was so lit! I’m not going to spoil this for others but I just couldn’t let this move flow by without doing a review. IF Thanos ending the game in the previous Avengers battle was sickening to you, then this will be victorious, yet bitter sweet if you’re a fan of specifics (Iron man becoming the center for the multi-universes). I guess, I’m giving away too much of the plot, right?

From my perspective movies have always carried deeper meanings and manifestations in their messages. I believe that they give you insight into the future plans of the direction the world is going to grow in as they produce culture because art lends ideas to creatives, but that’s just my perspective.

I went to Lansing Cinema to see the movie, and the energy was compiled of true Marvel fans who weren’t going the day without seeing the 3 hour movie. Marvel may have just out done Star Wars at their own game.

Appearances were made by: Chella H, Shawnna, John Blu, Sean Dale, Cold Heart of Crucial Conflict; and a gang of Auburn Gresham and Simeon kids (you know it was more than just us there lol). It was a great party and video shoot, and everyone was beautiful with dope vibes. It’s always good to be around good people.

Happy 5th Anniversary ‼️ To BK From WordPress 😊 : How does this make me feel ⁉️💞 #BitterSweet

It’s amazing because it’s a reflection of how consistent I have been in developing my quality of communication and media. And to think I’ve been hard on my self because I’ve been thinking that I haven’t been consistent.

I’ve come a long way ‼️ and I have ways to go but this milestone reminds me that I can overcome anything. Throughout these last 5 years, I’ve floated through the industry crafting, drafting, and developing my lane. This year I’ve finally chosen a specialty: LAW , ETHICS, and ACTS. 

After playing almost every position in the Field. I am now using all of my tools and knowledge acquired to further run 🏃🏾‍♀️ my race, as Nipsey Hussle says “Marathon”, because I’m more into victory laps. At some point the race will end but the marathon continues.

I am Self-Published, Director, CTO 👩🏾‍💼, Editor, Scholar 👩🏾‍🏫, Producer, Creative, Communication and Media Specialist, and everything else I intend on being in the future.

BIG thanks to all those who have, will, and do support me during my venture. It’s been a long 6 years in finding self. And I’m grateful to have shared it with you.

I dedicate this celebration to Jaymo and , a close relative who was shot and killed today on the Southside of Chicago, including the other young man who was shot & killed. I will not mention his name in respect of his family and to give them their privacy. 

This is why my mission is important because quality in using our (my) voice will bring change to our environment especially if we do it in quantity.

I love you all forever and you did not leave in vain. All angels 👼🏾 memories will live forever through us & our legacy.

Happy 5th Anniversary to me‼️🇲🇦🍾🥃🍷🍸🍹 Thanks for having meWordpress.
