A Tribute to Black Excellence


A metropolis is:


a melting pot of magnified ethnicity and multiple cultures.

.

To not see color or claim colorblindness is blatant ignorance.

.

What I see, rather, is a kaleidoscope of exquisite elegance.

.

Different expressions of perfection.

.

Each one an extension of Elohim.

.

As in a melody spun by Toronto's own Dream Warriors in the 90's:

.

This one's for Jamaica,

Africa,

Dominique,

Trinidad and Tobago

St. Kitts, Bermuda,

Antigua, St. Lucia,

St. Maarten,

and do not forget Montesserat,

Aruba, Grenada, Guyana, and Cuba,

St. Vincent, Angola,

Bahamas, Puerto Rico,

Dominican Republic and Rio,

Martinique and Guadalupe,

And Virgin Islands..

.

Truly, these are all from Ludi.

.

I loved this album growing up, among many others from the hip hop scene.

.

First plugging into this sensationally sonic culture through the 80's opened my eyes to a whole new world.

.

One I never intend to unplug from as I've benefited abundantly from the rich myriad of sound I've found.

.

I owe an endless flow of thanks to all the black artists who have shaped my taste and style.

.

Musicians are among my greatest influences and I am well versed in terms of love and respect for their various cultures because of them.

.

Most of all I'm grateful for the many friendships I've been blessed with across this diverse selection of humanity along the way.

.

To each of you, and you know who you are, I owe a debt of gratitude.

.

I'm thankful for you and I love you.

.

I stand with you.

.

Not just today.

.

Not just this week, month, or year (especially this year, seriously, what gives!?).

.

May we keep doing life side by side and making beautiful music together.

.

United.
