From London to Jamaica and everywhere in between: iPhone/digital/film/alternative processes & mind bombs. Re-blogging is cool. And crediting my personal work is hot. I thank you in advance.

*My own personal photography/poetry etc is clearly identified. However, if you come across anything on my blog where a photographer/artist is not clearly credited, please help me identify who they are. Credit should be given where credit is due*

No it’s spelled Negus.

Negus. “King,” “Ruler” or “Emperor”

Head over to weareriddim.com to read my indepth review of Chronixx - live in  at Electric, Brixton on August, 10 2014. Also, tune in to Jamie Rodigan on wearebangradio betwenn 10pm and 1am tonight for his interview with Chronixx

I don’t like ass kissers, flag wavers or team players. I like people who buck the system. Individualists. I often warn people: “Somewhere along the way, someone is going to tell you, ‘There is no “I” in team.’ What you should tell them is, ‘Maybe not. But there is an “I” in independence, individuality and integrity.’” Avoid teams at all cost. Keep your circle small. Never join a group that has a name. If they say, “We’re the So-and-Sos,” take a walk. And if, somehow, you must join, if it’s unavoidable, such as a union or a trade association, go ahead and join. But don’t participate; it will be your death. And if they tell you you’re not a team player, congratulate them on being observant.

What horrifies me most is the idea of being useless: well-educated, brilliantly promising, and fading out into an indifferent middle age.

Powerful poster design by one of my mentors Michael “Freestylee” Thompson which seems even more pertinent since hearing this good news. On Tuesday, August 12, 2014, charges were laid against the three policemen & two civilians in a ruling by the jury at the KIngston & St Andrew Coroners Court for the murder of Robert “Kentucky Kid” Hill. This comes nearly five years after he was shot to death in his home on December 2009. If you’re unfamiliar with this chilling and absolutely heartbreaking case then watch The Al Jazeera documentary-Jamaica: Island of Music and Murder. Yes the title sounds harsh but the truth can often be raw & abrasive. We must not forget that brutality is nothing new & is woven deeply into our sociopolitical history: Good Friday Coral Gardens Incident aka Bad Friday aka Black Friday-1963 and more recently and more widely documented: Tivoli Gardens Incursion-2010. My heart goes out his Japanese wife and child that have been left behind to deal with the aftermath of his tragic death.

The white stripe represents the non-Muslim, religious minorities of Pakistan. The dark green color represents the Islamic religion, and the celestial symbols on the flag of Pakistan are meant to represent progress, light, and knowledge.
