In Contrast

Black cotton, white slaves
Black supremacists, white activists
An invalid perception, that could never equivalent or reciprocate
White cotton, black slaves
White supremacists, black activists
What’s the science?

In the beginning, there was the original black man
Our indigenous origin
Knowledge is understanding…
Kings and Queens

So I use my black thoughts as my roots have been stimulated
Amongst a society that has been simulated
While the truth has disintegrated
As the teachers generated in the minds of the blind…
Giving a misconception of…

Black, the organic race
Yet they misinterpret our color as Satanic plagued, Gothic
While white is pure and white is prosperous
Black is poverty and black is ominous

So they blackmail and blackball us and
Give us white lies which originated from the white man’s
There never was a middle section in this venn diagram

Our association is with darkness which injects fear…
Black, so commonly used as the color of mourning
And bereavement
The color of concealment and non-achievement
But ironically Native Americans associated black
with the life giving soil

As Europeans enslaved our black heritage
Still we rise…
So they despise our pride…segregation…
Say it LOUD!…

Black is the color that does not emit or reflect light
In any part of the visible spectrum
Instead it absorbs all frequencies
Black and white, no shades of grey in between
Maybe you’ll love us when we fade to black…

But even metaphorically, that’s morally incorrect
Because from birth to adolescence our complexion
is darkened
And as black as we are, they want to see failure

Bi racial, Kings and Queens
Understand your black genes are the predominance
They say the blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice
The darker the flesh, the deeper the roots
I say black is beautiful, from light to dark

I am a black dove hovering above the majestic sky
Not to be confused with a black hole, but rather
A black star…
Shining above and beyond any galactic passage

I am black youth writing with my black ball point pen
Composing black scriptures to the illest black milk
Hit me on my blackberry if you want to contact Black
Collar Society
Even Rolling Stones had no choice but to paint it

Black cotton, white slaves
Black supremacists, white activists
White cotton, black slaves
White supremacists, black activists

The Underachiever Mixtape is an online release, which will serve as the prelude to The Black Collar Society project dropping mid to late 2010. Stay tuned! The Underachiever includes tracks from Conscious' previous '08 release, Above The Influence, as well as unreleased material. All mixing and scratching is credited to Reality The Don. Some are familiar with most of the material given on this tape, but to the new fans and listeners, this is all new raw material from Conscious. With that being said, listen, download and enjoy. Peace [Black Collar Society]

Nas and Damian Marley- Strong Will Continue

Unfortunately, Nas and Damian Marley's project Distant Relatives project has been pushed back for a later release. After hearing this track, I became very inspired and motivated. With that being said I am highly anticipating this project, and I hope you all enjoy this track from them. Peace and Love.

New Mixtape: The Underachiever coming soon!

Peace to everyone. I feel it appropriate to inform you on the new mixtape in which I will be dropping within the next couple of weeks, "The Underachiever". This mixtape will serve as the prelude to my highly anticpated Black Collar Society project. The Underachiever will include tracks from my previous '08 release: Above The Influence and unreleased tracks as well. I derived the mixtape name, from my status as of current with this entire hip hop DMV scene. I do believe I am one of the elite MC's of this region, yet the outlets, the hours of networking are still not enough to catch the ears of the listeners. There is a sense of underachievement, as well as our region as a whole underachieving in the music industry. With so much talent we possess its difficult, to stay humble and continue to grind with lack of recognition and respect. Thus, I felt the title was suitable for this state of current affairs. Stay tuned and be on the look out for "The Underachiever" and The Black Collar Society project.

Listen and Download "The Voice" which will be a track on the mixtape
