Here’s what I assume is just a snippet of Music For Life from Hi-Tek’s Hi-Teknology 2: The Chip. According to the track list it also features Common, Busta, Marsha from Floetry and J Dilla.

    Ludas acting was fairly impressive, as well as Crash. As for ludas corniness….

    Luda > Shock G (Humpty Dumpty)

    crash seemed too cliche to me. i don’t understand why everyone thought that was such a good, thought provoking movie. i didn’t walk away from that movie feeling like it shined a new or interesting perspective on anything about racism.

    When I hear Luda, I don’t hear southern rap actually. Not based on today’s standards anyway. When I think rap in the south, I automatically think Lil Jon, TI, Jeezy, D4L, JD, Lil Wayne, etc…not Luda for some reason.
    That’s from a non-southerner perspective though. Luda’s videos and subject matter remind me of Missy Elliott. They don’t want to be put into a box, and they remain challenging the stereotypes that currently exist in rap music.

    Luda also reminds me of a young Common Sense (before the “I Used To Love Her” track blue up). Common seemed like he hadn’t found himself on his early works, but now he’s matured into his own. Maybe, one day that will happen for Luda, but right now…it is what it is.

    ^ Yeah, you’d rather go watch “Waste” Deep….I’m just playin w/ you. It was thought provoking, but at the same time, the intertwining stories and message has been done before. You can’t tell me the part w/ the hispanic and his daughter werent heartfelt though.

    ^^That statement surprises me? It’s the simplicity of the stories and how the overlapped each other that gave the movie its real appeal. The movie was well put together as a whole. The racism was just the storyline.

    ^^ see i don’t even remember the part with the hispanic man and his daughter. the only part i really remember from that movie is the storyline concerning the black woman (i forgot the actress’ name), her husband and the white police officer. oh and i DID NOT go see waist deep. lol.

    ^ LOL, I figured u didnt see waist deep but had to throw it out there anyways. Yeah, the movie was acually very good though. I highly recommend it.

    ^^^^i just didn’t get much out of the movie. i mean don’t get me wrong. i think crash was an ok movie but i feel its a little overrated. maybe i was expecting too much because people were giving it such good reviews.

    OK, over to the other thread

    ^^I gotchu, but it may have touched many people because most of us that have lived in this country for any real length of time have been through several of those racist situations personally. U’r just a young tullip just really getting her roots wet with the racist waters of America…ha ha?

    ^^^^i live in the south. trust me, i have experienced racism. shit is still not that sweet down here. my problem with the movie is that it was just so predictable and it didn’t really make me think.

    Nas
    yeah, yeah
    it started with rhythms i heard listenin to the wall
    the bouncin of basketballs on playgrounds and all
    the empty bottles is hollow wind blowin inside em
    the flow and the rhymin got my alignment to a science
    mixing with my moms in the kitchen, them spoons rattling
    pots and pans, faucet water pouring tunes managing
    to come from all the fussing and ramballing what i know this was, pure music untampered with
    and all them fuckin things showbiz does
    older thugs showed us stuff, like how to hold a plug
    juice from the street life it almost could have blowed us up
    crates of records, great sessions, had the whole hood jammin
    large speakers fresh made smell the wood sandin
    father did his blues, smooth legendary jazz man
    saw his wife secondary to his true passion
    started with my crew rappin
    new jacks in 82
    never look back now look what it changed me to, music

    marsha (floetry)
    we gotta believe the future, we gotta believe the past
    we gotta believe in more, they know that we have
    we gotta believe each other, we gotta open up our minds
    coz music is for life

    Hi-tek
    whats the difference between me and you
    is im a real cognisor of this rap shit i really do it
    my whole life man is really music
    through my bass line im living through it
    another expression of life i couldnt live without
    i like my music straight pure not watered down
    damn it feels good to fulfil my dreams of getting out the hood
    kept me busy, gave me a chance to stop selling drugs
    spending time in the basement kept me from acktin up
    zoneing out, wishin dre could check it out
    im here now
    i cant believe the proof in the pudding, everything happen for a reason
    through this music im able to feed my family
    when im stressed out its my sanity
    its a life style, all on the street, in here hollywood
    music in my DNA, its my lively hood, music

    chorus

    Common
    keep the music alive
    the good and the strong survive
    i close my eyes and imagine i was jackson 5
    randy and michael going through lifes cycle
    music allowed me to let life go
    so vital to a youngster comin up amoung street hustlers
    the big beat would touch us in such a special place
    given the ghetto a taste of what freedom is like
    i reached the point in my life when i was needing a mic
    no second guessing, self expression, and lessons learned
    aggression became sessions where sess was burned
    put my soul into it, now my feet is firm
    in the game where a name is hard to earn
    and hot cats careers get scarred and burned
    through the years mine took a godly turn
    this is the story of my life man trapped in the verse
    no matter money or the movies, music is first

    not sure if its all right but i couldnt find this any where so i decided to do it myself
