Brother Amar didn't ask to see my I.D. Because it's the protocol when accepting debit cards in business transactions. Brother Amar asked to see my card because he said I looked suspicious. Kinda thru me off but whatever... I told Amar it was my second time coming here and I wanted to give them my business because they looked like they were Muslim. His response was, "I never saw you in here before." I must admit, my beard was short and I had just took my braids out...Oh yeah, and my coat was inside out. Also, I had on a Pontiac Hat and everything was all black except my J's. Amar had a nice beard and all, much longer than mine but I guess Brother Amar didn't believe that I was the owner of a "Subterraneous Records" debit card or that my name was "Nahshid Sulaiman" or that I owned a bassbort, or that I had been to any of the countries that were in my bassbort, including Saudi Arabia. Brother Amar said, "You know, Being a small business owner, when you are suspicious, you are supposed to ask for an i.d." Just Doing his job, Bless his heart. I handed him my card and i.d. and then politely asked for a refund, Bil Arabi. When Amar gave me my refund, I said "Jazakallahu Khairan!" #thecaptainstable #Pontiac #realitycheck #ikeepsthepartymovinglikeaimmigrant
Flows ILL . Sneezing without my Flu shots One Be Lo temperature chill The fever too hot . My epemic stop niggas bussin on school blocks . Loose left tight when I right/write Without the tool box . Screwdrivers my crew liver Than two lighters . Blowing like last dragon Who driving Budweiser? . Wheels Turner like Nat Murders in Uprisings . Barry my foes in the Sandert in Detroit Lions . Tears flow from her eyes Seventy five North in Pontiac Land of the Chief Buffalo beef . They meat you a fork in the road Stuck in street . With Salt trucks winter is cold nothing is sweet . Tested many . Kobe and Lex trigger efx Who next to gimme In less the twenty minutes Check abilities From next century til infinity Officially The record spin Now The rest is history
My first time performing in Germany was at #BOTY None of the crews from the States made it that year so it was a big deal for me to rep on the World stage. Back then, this was like the Olympics, with the best crews from everywhere getting down. I met this young African dude who asked, "Where are you from? Me: "I'm from the States African kid: "Yeah, but where are you from?" Me: "I'm from Michigan" African kid: "But where are you from?" Me: "Ohhh, yeah I'm from Pontiac Michigan" African kid: "No I mean like, me and my family live in Germany, but we are from Senegal. Where are you from?" Me: 🤔 African kid: Me: "I don't even know" That little conversation fucked my whole head up. It was the Battle of the year, had me thinking about the Battle of the years. . P.s. DJ Leacy spun for me but maybe 2 weeks later he died in a car accident #rip #HipHop #Roots #Universal #Africa #diaspora #knowledgeofself #bboyforlife #bboy #bgirl #massivemonkees

Dig in the rhymes like digging in side minds with critical lines, left to be criticized. Instead of education and being kind The Facts set aside, for bigger pride If that's the case then get in line like cafeteria's at dinner time But in a few cases the children died Mostly the tinted kind Remember the times I really get it The system is quite baffled Real Shit, Opinions are like assholes Some people get'em from sitting inside classrooms You thinking syllabus, students remember syphylis Cuz some niggas get it administered by lab coats That's why I ask Folks, How they handle germination? Some medication, extermination like German Nation I heard a patient was healthy from human observation After the shot, his health experience complicated Was it from Doctors in occupation or population? He didn't read the black and white, like Obama's making In Alabama Obama Care was beyond his payments So when he blamed the doctors patience on top of patients The doctors statements were fingers pointing in body language They started blaming the people inside his neighborhood Not the adults, the kids who can't articulate it That way nobody gets sued from the experiments Who really wins in the rat race? I think, Not the guinea pigs You might believe what you read in the paper: "Fuck what you eat on the table" maybe the needles can save him I don't tell people to leave it or feed'ed to kids I haven't taken shots in decades, my medicine made it for ages So when folks say they "feel like this" or "felt like that" Or how they get injected and they "felt like rats" I don't blame them I rather take a chance trusting my own body Humans getting naturally sick, is not odd to me Whether you G.E.D. Or thinking scholarly No body is G.O.D. Or like the Prophet but we see People profit from knowledge Then put the profit in wallets Can't dismiss this topic You might consider it gossip The same proffesionals told me not to smoke weed Be the same people prescribing shit that I don't need I'm saying I know some people who take it and still get sick I know some people who didn't take it and still got sick I know some people who took it and didn't get sick I know some people are healthy and they don't take shit A lot of silly attention Building up tension It's too many shitty opinions to really mention If people do their own research, school or homework On Western Medicine Wherever you go say, "Where's the evidence?" Pupils be dilated looking at the doctor bill You got insurance? Ok If not you gotta deal I'm not allowed to tell another body how to feel I used to love Cliff Huxtable in my living room But he not as real, they locked him up, for dropping pills Flu Over the Cukoo's nest, and now you Gots to Chill Like EPMD, business as usual Cuz we all carry germs Some people Parrish from Eric Sermons that talk about God will heal The flock is ill Germs like feathers flock together So when you get cold, and it's not the weather It's hot in temperature Whether or not the shot is administered #randomshots
The desert ain't as hot as us Tropical or 'Artica Gotham city or Narnia Populace metropolis I ain't trynna sound pessimist More the opposite Still in my prime, you ain't fuggin with my Optimist/Optimus Rock in this for anthropologist Osteologist Building The Egyptologist, think of Obelisk College heads See me Washing-tons like the monument Erogenous With esophagus You win a scholarship When you see my occupants No communist or colonist My continent like Ethiopia Nobody conquered it We're dominant Stronger than an Olive Oil compliment Spinach with the croutons To go with the condiments I'm confident Bear/Bare arms like Popeye or Octopus No stopping us A red Octagon couldn't obstacle Tell your optometrist to counterfeit your documents My articles atomic particles Naked to obstacles #GALACTICA #Lighty #EarsApart #BinaryStar #OneManArmy #Autocons #Subterraneous "Welcome everybody when they come to the show"
