‘So, what ever happened to peace?’ Rakim asked back in the 80’s.
It is now mid-2016. A year filled with the deaths of icons, rap music feeling tainted and a political storm like no other. Republicans against Democrats. Whites versus Blacks. Sounds like a broken record. We have been here before. Heck, we haven’t left this place since the 60’s. Racial tensions abound across this nation. The media drives it, networks telling their own narratives,
sometimes without facts, often with misconstrued facts.
Who do you believe? Who can you believe? Who can we trust?
These days it seems hard to trust our media outlets, politicians, doctors, etc. These are people we’ve been taught to trust because they’re experts in their fields. Therefore, you need to put your trust in them. But day after day, we see evidence of these people misleading us, being untrustworthy and/or outright lying to us.
What we need is proper dialogue, fueled not by emotions but by rational-thinking, educated people. People who are from all walks of life, rich/poor, old/young, etc. What we need is to
stop the hate, stop the negative energy, sit down and work out our differences. We need to restructure this country’s government. We need to get rid of those who are not competent in their job duties, or those who make promises they don’t keep. In a normal, everyday job, if you don’t do the work properly, you get written up. You go on a disciplinary plan which, if your actions are not corrected, will lead to you losing your job.
Why doesn’t that happen to people in prominent lines of work?
Teachers who don’t do their jobs properly should not be allowed to teach. Doctors or policemen/women who are not mentally sound should not be in those roles. Why? Because lives depend on them. It is time for us to stand up and make these decisions. People are losing their lives out on the streets. Our government spends too much on military and war.
For what? For oil? Power? When will we say enough is enough?
We all want to live our lives in a peaceful manner. We want our children to grow up in a world free of hate and violence. We say these things but do we really want these things? When you really want something, don’t you do whatever it takes to get it?
Don’t you think we deserve peace? I do!
All lives matter. We are ALL humans.
I know you cannot disagree or argue that point with me. And, being that we are ALL humans, we should try and treat each other as we would want others to treat us. Some people don’t love themselves; therefore, they cannot love others.
Trust that God has made you a good human. Love yourself.
This way, you can love others too as much as you love yourself.
We have 5 months left in 2016.
Maybe we can put some positive effort and energy out there
to make our communities a better place to live.
Plant a tree. Feed some homeless people.
Do a random act of kindness.
Teach someone something positive.
Positive actions bring positive results.
Much love and PEACE!

The E-Water Show has decided to make a move. In order to bring You a higher quality show with a farther reach, we will be switching Broadcasting Stations over the next few weeks. We will not have a playlist for a couple of weeks. However, please continue to send in your new music. When we return we will have a much broader reach.
Here’s one of our new changes: ‘New Music’ will replace the discontinued ‘Shine Artist of the Month’. We will focus on One Artist that will be played on our Website for 14 days/24 hours a day, nonstop. A newly added Tab will include the artist’s photo, bio and social links.
Plus! Catch a brand new segment called ‘Sho-Biz' with Sho-Nuff and DJ Kevar,
which replaces ‘Just Gossip’.
This is a very Exciting time for the E-Water Show — stay tuned — see you in a few weeks!

A RAP ATTACK “Jack The Rapper” FLASHBACK with Nasty-Nes and Kool Moe Dee.
“For the record:
The Celebration of Prince and his music during #BETAwards consisted of *19* @prince songs.
Stephen Hill and his team curated this from a place of reverent friendship and a deep knowledge of catalog.
The marketing of the celebration was conceived and executed by people, including myself, who worked with Prince.
Who respected and understood him.
Who take the upholding of his legacy seriously.
Because Prince is family.
When it comes to any subsequent “tributes",
this will now be the bar no other award show can touch.”

KCMU RAP ATTACK #FBF 1988: I found this on You Tube — a rare recording of two of my very first RAP ATTACK radio shows aired in 1988. The first link is about 37 min long & you can hear my MasterMix around 10min 30 sec into it. Both aired on 90.3FM KCMU, 28 years ago.
I was fired from KFOX in April of 1988 as the station was sold & they made it clear to me that the new KFOX would NOT play RAP/Hip Hop anymore.
KCMU, based on the UW campus, offered me a Sunday night slot around July of 1988 to keep KFOX FRESHTRACKS on the air. I accepted the offer, went from AM to FM in 3 months & renamed my show KCMU RAP ATTACK.
I wanted this show to sound just as good as if you're listening to a Casey Kasem American Top 40 show or any professional sounding show you'd hear on commercial radio. I didn't want to just yell on a mic & say my name in a mix or during the show so I invested $$$ in getting Professional Custom Voice Over Drops. I also made my own Drops & the rest is Seattle Hip Hop HISTORY!
Here it is from 1988 (28 years ago) yours truly, NASTY-NES on KCMU RAP ATTACK!
