Jay-Z — Open Letter

The game controls you. Every choice you make, every corner you try to hide in, and every possible outcome of your life, but not in the way you think. High level control is deep rooted, it comes in the form of values, norms, culture, institution and the perception of need. It takes hundreds of years to fully develop, it’s invisible.

An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly… For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.” – Marcus Tullius Cicero

Think of yourself in the purest form and you will realize that you need nothing. However, there’s no business in self-realization. Make a man believe he needs and you’ve created a constant desire to want, to consume. There are many layers to control and for those not attuned to the truth, the trap can last a lifetime.

They monitor your e-mails and they are legally allowed to.  But, once you’re in the public eye and you are getting too far ahead of yourself, they yank the chord, or, for this matter, we shall say: chains.

The martyr cannot be dishonored. Every lash inflicted is a tongue of fame; every prison a more illustrious abode. — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Jay-Z was recently on vacation in Cuba, a communist regime that goes against nearly everything this country stands for.  But, more importantly, Mr. Carter has been in the public eye a LOT lately for his strategic business moves and master-like chess plays.  Something that the “leaders” of this country don’t have the mental capabilities to comprehend.  You don’t have to be smart, you just have to be unplugged and realize that you are living in a construct that can be bent at every which way, otherwise, you are just another sleeper following the system/prison rules that you were born and brainwashed into.

You awoke out of nowhere the day your mom gave birth to you, yet you don’t remember anything before that?  Is it a coincidence that you are born lost?

Recently Jay decided to expand his company’s operations into the sports management world. Remember, change is the only constant in the world, contrary to what anyone says humans are truly limitless and the universe is completely moldable. To be stuck in your ways is exactly what they want, predictable, following, stagnant people. Jay-Z has always understood this and it has been reflected in his music, it’s only natural he would continue that development other aspects of his life. The true masters (not the leaders) of the universe found a discrepancy here, and it had nothing to do with the conflict of interest of him having ownership in a NBA team, because as Jay illustrates in one of his lyrics on “Open Letter“, the free world is one giant constant conflict of interest:

This communist talk is so confusing
When it’s from China, the very mic that I’m using…”

As a player in this Matrix, Jay-Z has taken things into his own hands immediately, shouting “freedom of speech” to awaken some of us up, and placing his “Open Letter” out through the one median they will never be able to control: his music. The sly and cunning will never speak out of hand, they will always hide their true intentions for the sake of diplomacy…

Place your iron first inside a velvet glove.” – Napoleone Buonaparte

But a true passionate artist, the person who cares for truth will undoubtedly express themselves and fight for the truth. It’s emotional and not always the best strategic move but remember this is all a construct and the traitor is nothing but a fearful and weak. Reality is the true power and when you understand that you man up, expose the weakness with absolutely nothing to fear.

If only he wasn’t self-centered in his agendas and were really leading the resistance we would really be on to something. But then again, sometimes success can make one believe the illusion is real and it takes a direct hit to wake a sleeping giant…

The world’s under new management
The new role model, fuck this Zoolander shit”
