THE SHARIFF TOUR OF NYC

The Shariff's by Stash

 

When I booked this trip 6 months ago I had quiet a few expectations of how things would go...well so far nothing has let me down at all. It has been one of the best things I have ever experienced to date. I am such a proud father, & honoured to be a parent to 3 amazing sons.

 

One of the best things is I get to do all those touristy things that you never get to really do, like the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building...amongst other things. I have bbeen comong to this city since I lived here in 1987, & never once did I do anything touristy...wait I did go to the top of the World Trade Centre in '87...& I am glad that I did. But this is different. I am now Dad...I am the bank, I am responsible for these 3...& I really enjoy it. It's like we are the 3 Musketeers & Dante is D'Artagnan.

 

Been doing everything that they want to & seen Stash & his familly...which has been crazy...watching Dante & Ezra get on, knock heads & out do each other has been really hilarious...Stash & I were laughing at how they look like the kids vesrion of the 2 of us, but the mentality & humour is practically the same !!!

 

I guess the hardest thing has been telling the many people that I know here that I can not come out to this party & what not...& that what my kids want to do take precedent this time around...all about them. & I like it.

 

More to come...no doubt.

 

Be Well.

IT WAS ALL A DREAM

 

(Fuck all you hoes) Get a grip motherfucker.

Yeah, this album is dedicated to all the teachers that told me
I'd never amount to nothin', to all the people that lived above the
buildings that I was hustlin' in front of that called the police on
me when I was just tryin' to make some money to feed my daughters,
and all the niggaz in the struggle, you know what I'm sayin'?

Uh-ha, it's all good baby bay-bee, uh 

It was all a dream
I used to read Word Up magazine
Salt'n'Pepa and Heavy D up in the limousine
Hangin' pictures on my wall
Every Saturday Rap Attack, Mr. Magic, Marley Marl
I let my tape rock 'til my tape popped
Smokin' weed and bamboo, sippin' on private stock
Way back, when I had the red and black lumberjack
With the hat to match
Remember Rappin' Duke, duh-ha, duh-ha
You never thought that hip hop would take it this far
Now I'm in the limelight 'cause I rhyme tight
Time to get paid, blow up like the World Trade
Born sinner, the opposite of a winner
Remember when I used to eat sardines for dinner
Peace to Ron G, Brucey B, Kid Capri
Funkmaster Flex, Lovebug Starsky
I'm blowin' up like you thought I would
Call the crib, same number same hood
It's all good

Uh, and if you don't know, now you know, nigga, uh 

You know very well who you are
Don't let em hold you down, reach for the stars
You had a goal, but not that many
'cause you're the only one I'll give you good and plenty

I made the change from a common thief
To up close and personal with Robin Leach
And I'm far from cheap, I smoke skunk with my peeps all day
Spread love, it's the Brooklyn way
The Moet and Alize keep me pissy
Girls used to diss me
Now they write letters 'cause they miss me
I never thought it could happen, this rappin' stuff
I was too used to packin' gats and stuff
Now honies play me close like butter played toast
From the Mississippi down to the east coast
Condos in Queens, indo for weeks
Sold out seats to hear Biggie Smalls speak
Livin' life without fear
Puttin' 5 karats in my baby girl's ears
Lunches, brunches, interviews by the pool
Considered a fool 'cause I dropped out of high school
Stereotypes of a black male misunderstood
And it's still all good

Uh...and if you don't know, now you know, nigga

You know very well who you are
Don't let em hold you down, reach for the stars
You had a goal, but not that many
'cause you're the only one I'll give you good and plenty
[Verse Three:]

Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis
When I was dead broke, man I couldn't picture this
50 inch screen, money green leather sofa
Got two rides, a limousine with a chauffeur
Phone bill about two G's flat
No need to worry, my accountant handles that
And my whole crew is loungin'
Celebratin' every day, no more public housin'
Thinkin' back on my one-room shack
Now my mom pimps a Ac' with minks on her back
And she loves to show me off, of course
Smiles every time my face is up in The Source
We used to fuss when the landlord dissed us
No heat, wonder why Christmas missed us
Birthdays was the worst days
Now we sip champagne when we thirst-ay
Uh, damn right I like the life I live
'Cause I went from negative to positive
And it's all...

(It's all good)

...and if you don't know, now you know, nigga, uh
Uh, uh...and if you don't know, now you know, nigga
Uh...and if you don't know, now you know, nigga, uh

Representin' B-Town in the house, Junior Mafia, mad flavor, uh
Uh, yeah, a-ight

SYD BARRETT : ART & LETTERS

Was invited down to the IDEA GENERATION GALLERY by Feeney last night to check out the SYD BARRETT exhibition, which was rather good & very busy. As it turned out, Surprise, Surprise, Sailor Jerry was one of the fine beverages on offer, & happily I consumed a little.

 

All in all a good show, but I need to go again, it was that busy that you couldn't really get a good look at the volume of work. Also being the great photographer that I am, I forgot my damn camera...but thanks to the trusty iPhone & Hipstamatic i did a little documenting.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you to..Feeney & Sailor Jerry for the Beverages & Dinner.

 

Be Well.
