S.O.U.L. Purpose Press Release
OPERATION F.L.I.P. (Finding Lessons In Practice) = Lesson A + Lesson B

First & foremost, I would like to thank everyone who participated in this experiment. When I first put it together, I did not know how it would exactly unfold but I had an idea that everybody’s response would be similar to what it was… Safe to say I did extensive homework… I didn’t go in this blindly… I addressed certain problems, came up with solutions, plotted strategy for a timely unveiling, then anticipated how the reaction & result would be… Not easy… Hope the overall message translates…

THE COOL KIDS: I hope ya’ll understand that above all, your success qualified you guys to be in this experiment. I wish ya’ll the best… Mikey, you were a good sport…& you’re the 100th person to say I look like Jason Kidd! Funny shit… PEACE

JAY ELECTRONICA:
Your success aswell made you a prime candidate for this experiment… I wish you the best too… I read somewhere that the profits from your album are going to charity… S.O.U.L. Purpose has, is, & always will be charity based so I commend you for that! PEACE

ERYKAH BADU: You were thrown in that mix for the shock factor… I had to be convincing… I meant no disrespect… I actually had the pleasure of rocking with you at The Nuyorican Poet’s Cafe years ago & we vibed very well… One love… PEACE

MEDIA:
Big up to real journalists who report & inform & stay away from bullshit propaganda! Peace to Miss Info, Wreckless, Eskay, Low Key, Steve Raze, Grouchy Greg, Mike, Synapse, Brian, Wonder Twinz, Fubz, Thomas, Emily, Killa Hill, Kid Kaos, Cros1, PEACE Mag., Mick Boogie, Roslynn, & all others who truly take their media craft seriously!

INTERNET NERDS/SCREEN BANGERS/COMPUTER GANGSTERS: It’s obvious that the net is part of our everyday routine… It’s essential! But attempt to escape your virtual reality once in a while… Get out more & live life! There’s Hip Hop to be discovered! Pay attention to the experiment:
Operation F.L.I.P. (Finding Lessons In Practice)=LessonA+LessonB

BANDWAGON TRENDY HIPSTER HOPPERS: Respect the architects, pay dues, research, & learn about what you’re doing… We are ALL students of this culture! Preservation is key! Each one teach one, reach one another… Pay attention to the experiment:
Operation F.L.I.P. (Finding Lessons In Practice)=LessonA+LessonB

HATERS:
I love you guys!

RACISTS:
You guys are primitive beings… Sad & pathetic…

PEACE & BLESSINGS…

  11. devond Says:

    first of all i aint goin lie this is the lamest thing i ever seen someone do to get shine this guy made an experiment like he trensetting or sumthing i aint no internet gangster i just go through my blog rounds because like we all know your get more diversity of hip hop on the internet than on tv now dayz but back to this guy him and q-tip are acting like when everyone was wearing tommy hill figure everybody knew he was racist or that nikes are made in sweatshops (so thats makes them more wearable) a trend is a fucking trend hipster rap isnt even the name because no one who is put in the catergory claims it as there style including the cool kids and jay elect. Hip Hop is hip hop and Style of hip hop is hip hop its not that people are trying to bring back the 80’s and early 90’s its just a trendy meter area boutique style thats became very popular and most the clothes have a throwback feel Im proud to be from chicago where we have a bunch of up and comers who are products of that style so this dude just needs to sit his ass down with his q-tip co sign like qtip bout to produce his album very unlikely PEACE TO ESKAY WITHOUT YOUR INTERNET NEWS WE WOULDNT EVEN KNOW ABOUT THE UNPOPULAR HIP HOP thats so much better than (TIP wit Ya Boi)

    LOL

  14. Bboy Says:

    Devon, you have no understanding of the game..
    don’t confuse diversity with stupidity

    I can only think of this quote for you DEVON!!

    “Any intelligent fool(s) can make things bigger, more complex and more violent but it takes a touch of genius and alot of courage to move in the opposite direction.”

    In this case, Mazzi is the genius. Beef or no beef, it’s important to the game that we have S.O.U.L Purpose and like ORIGINAL elements in it. Hip Hop loves Mazzi and of course Q-tip..
    And you (Devon) should get off their tip.. please

  15. paze infinite Says:

    damn..i have to say when mazzi first told me he was gonna do this i wasn’t sure where he was going with it. i even tried to talk him out of it. but after seeing lesson b, everything came full circle. i fully understand what he was trying to do and i must say he pulled it off masterfully. alot of people ain’t gonna be convinced but that’s between them and their god. i think some of you fags hide behind a computer screen but ain’t really gangster enough to go offline with that greasy talk. at least mazzi had to balls to put it out there on the line and you can’t fault him.
    mazzi, my dude well done…
    just like jay-z said if you ain’t feeling him fine/it costs you nothing /pay him no mind

  16. Unxpekted Says:

    Me rapping in arabic>soul purposes’ career

  17. Richie Cunning Says:

    I don’t get it. Lesson A was tight.

  18. passing-thru Says:

    yo, this dude seems to be (extra) digging for subject matter. his effort in trying to find a niche in “hating” what is pretty much the norm for youth today is lack luster. basically the industry is what it was destined to be, a monolithic mass consumerism machine that will stay the steady course. this is the new generation, much like the generation that they are trying to mimic, that generation also found nostalgia in disco and vintage clothing (re: house music early 90’s) and yes even mimicked the early years of hip-hop (gazelles never really died) – it goes on and on…bleh, just make your music, and stop trying to look for a crutch in shitting on current trends, because what you’re trying to do is “beef” with those kids about what they do…and what they do shouldn’t be a concern to you, unless what you really want is for them to be your listeners (as well)…

  19. Acra Says:

    first of all i aint goin lie this is the lamest thing i ever seen
    someone do to get shine this guy made an experiment like he trensetting or
    sumthing i aint no internet gangster i just go through my blog rounds
    because like we all know your get more diversity of hip hop on the
    internet than on tv now dayz but back to this guy him and q-tip are acting
    like when everyone was wearing tommy hill figure everybody knew he was
    racist or that nikes are made in sweatshops (so thats makes them more
    wearable) a trend is a fucking trend hipster rap isnt even the name
    because no one who is put in the catergory claims it as there style including
    the cool kids and jay elect. Hip Hop is hip hop and Style of hip hop
    is hip hop its not that people are trying to bring back the 80’s and
    early 90’s its just a trendy meter area boutique style thats became
    very popular and most the clothes have a throwback feel Im proud to be
    from chicago where we have a bunch of up and
    comers who are products of that style so this dude just needs to sit
    his ass down with his q-tip co sign like qtip bout to produce his album
    very unlikely PEACE TO ESKAY WITHOUT YOUR INTERNET NEWS WE WOULDNT EVEN
    KNOW ABOUT THE UNPOPULAR HIP HOP thats so much better than (TIP wit Ya
    Boi)

    ^^^^
    DEVOND,
    WOW! He warned us about the haters! Devond get your head outta your ass
    & see where the message lies! He said that people don’t have to fuck
    w/ him but rather pay attention to good music that’s out there! He shits
    on the dick riders! Hip Hop is about expression & individuality…
    This experiment did Hip Hop a service! Wake the fuck up! & if u ain’t an
    internet gansta, then it wasn’t intended for u! Ga ‘head w/ that! If u
    ain’t a fake hipster, then ga ‘head w/ that! Heads knew about Soul
    Purpose before this! This put’m in a different light internet wise but he
    didn’t come off as looking for shine! Ur opinon about the music is one
    thing, but his unique approach was dope! What have u done? At least he
    went to some extent to voice his view on a culture we’re all involved in!

  20. Read Richards Says:

    Cool kids are wack as f#$K, gorilla black couldnt be biggie so why do they think they could be the beastie boys?
    i like the track and the video, some good points are made.
    just because a project or experiment includes the masses that make it a stunt?
    whats wrong with you people.
    then you compain about to many rappers sounding the same ???

  21. duyukid Says:

    word. DevonD.. i feel your passion and all, but I think you’re missing the point.

    Their point wasn’t necessarily don’t wear the stuff. It was more like, don’t just follow a trend because it’s “cool”. Find out about it, then do whatever you feel like based on your own personal convictions. And if you have no problem with not knowing the history behind whatever you’re rockin’… that’s fine. But, in choosing not to care about all that… you should know and accept that more informed people are gonna call you out on it.

    Its like.. if you’re gonna crip-walk and you’re a suburban kid from Nebraska… you’ll probably be ok in your area.. just don’t roll out to Compton with it and think everyone’s gonna be cool with it.

    but all in all…

    do you, kid.

  22. Read Richards Says:

    i think the overlaying idea is calling out the poser 80’s nostalgics, the people that are mockin the style, not the real heads, its all of a sunden cool to wear those thing but now people no nothing about it, and to some people that stuff means somethin more then a trend or a fad.
    Its the same thing people do when they call out a poser ion any other group, weither it be poser gangsters or poser punk rockers

  23. chedderr Says:

    looks like he saw the first part didnt go over too well so he followed it up with this…

    its just another case of an old rapper who is set in his ways and doesn’t know how to make music thats interesting to anyone but him and a couple other dudes who do the exact same shit that he does. So he figured maybe he could get niggas to hate on the new shit so he doesnt have to improve his game…

    “I can keep making songs at the same level I’ve been making them for the past 9 years if I get people to hate on the new generation!”

    smh at this herb for gettin shine off this shit.

    peep the shameless self promo throughout the vid…
