My birthday was a couple of weeks ago, and on that day I couldn't wait to get off work. While I was waiting at the gate to clock out I ran into Marcell Anderson aka Cell Mack asking me a million questions, Ken u really play all your music? Ken u write all those song yourself? Ken I saw on Fb it's your birthday u can't be no more then 45? NO Marcell I'm a old man I'm going into my 70's WHAT ELSE DO U WANT TO KNOW! You know some times I just want to chill out, reflect on what going on in my life, and have a little down time to myself. But I guess he didn't know that the only thing on my mind at that time was going to the STRIPCLUB. When I did get there I was already sipping on some henny, so I ordered some bbq chicken wings. And just as I'm starting to enjoy the VOLUPTUOUS, TANTALIZING, THICK-O-LICIOUSNESS, JIGGLING all up in my grill I heard some guy holler out Bogart. Now I hollered back at him but I really didn't know who he was. He's not from the job or the neighborhood because he's calling me Bogart. But he recognizes me, so I'm thinking he's someone from Instagram, fb, or twitter. Then he starts in on me every 5 minutes AIN'T NO BODY FOLLOWING U. DON'T NO BODY LIKE THEM POST U BE PUTTING UP. I'm explaining to him it's just a hobby for me, I don't take it seriously. 10 more minutes go by U DON'T KNOW WHAT U DOING ANYWAY. U NEED 2 STOP POSTING AIN'T NOBODY LISTENING 2 U. I'm saying to him I'm not trying to be a artist. I'm not selling beats. this is just a way 4 me to express some of the things i'm thinking about. I don't produce music for other people. He's like U SHOULDN'T YOUR SONGS DON'T SOUND LIKE SHIT ANYWAY. You know I'm a quiet guy, I'm not into a bunch of DRAMA I don't want any problems so at this point I just get up and leave. You know I just wanted to chill out, reflect on what going on in my life. Have a little down time to myself on my birthday. Now on the way home all of this is on my mind, and I say to myself I'll just chill out in the MAN CAVE and call it a day. As I started down my basement steps I said to myself I wonder if anyone else FEELS THE WAY THAT I DO, then I blacked out. LOL this usually happens when I go into deep meditation to create these songs. You know 'The Secret' I told u about it before but know body hears me. Or it could have something to do with the bottle of hennessy I brought home with me. I don't know but after regaining consciousness 3 hours later, and picking myself up off of the basement floor. I notices all me equipment plug in and turned on. So I clicked the play button on the computer screen and this is what comes out the speakers.

At work people say Ken you are a quite guy, I guess that's true. But don't thing that I don't feel for my coworkers at SSP. Many of them have lost Loved ones to illness, accidents, even violence. Now i guess when i punch out that gate it the end of the day my alter ego is not so quite he has to say something. I want you all to know you have my prayers and deepest sympathy. from the background in the shadows - I've watched it all and I remember that day- and I wished you'd never got that call I know I could never replace - the love they've taken from you but I want you to know - that I see how much it hurts you I've read the post you put up- baring your soul and I've seen pictures of him -and read the memories you hold if I could take away all your pain -wipe away every tear if I possessed the powers in my hands -I would bring him right back here For U For U there's nothing I would not do if I could only bring your son back to u when the storm clouds row in -and the sun don't want to shine and the thoughts of him some how -just won't seem to leave your mind when the rain stops falling -and all the clouds are gone I want you to know his spirit is free -and soul lives on one more hug one more kiss -one more chance to laugh if I possessed the powers in my hands -I'd move his flesh right out that path in a world where it seems -no one wants to care if I possessed the powers in my hand -I'd snatch that bullet right out of air speak his name out loud -for I see him amongst the clouds speak his name out loud -for he hears amongst the clouds if you doubt believe me -my third eye brings wonders to me if you practice the secrets I tell -then he will also remove your veil quite the left, right below and above -and you will be able to see your love

Life is so hectic we never seem to have enough TIME to fit it all in. Only if we had a little bit more of it,(Time) but it's never enough. TIME belongs to no one. It's always on the move it never stays around long enough to fit in. My niece told me everyone has an expiration date on them, maybe that's what the urgency is all about. Then I started to think about TIME, as if it were a beautiful woman I had seen. Then saying to myself I've got to have her, my pursuit of Time began. and I wrote these words. from the beginning I never felt like I belong so I never stayed in one place to long and I couldn't believe I was the only one so I search everywhere underneath the sun and low an behold what my eyes would see there she was one just like me She controls the rhythm of my heart / the tides of the sea the time that I'll love / and when I'll cease to be Come on My SUGA TIME come on I've been chasing you baby / my whole life long cause you know what it's like / to never belong come on MY SUGA TIME come on let me ask you your name because you're so damn fine and she whispered like the wind that her name was Time but then again I felt so alone because with the blink of a eye Time was gone I've tried to capture you tame you make you mine you're just out of reach cause I'm one step behind I'm controlling and possessive put that label on me I confess cause I want all your time spent with me you see the wind will keep blowing come rain or shine and the earth will keep spinning as long as I've got time and there's nothing more sweet or valuable to me then having that lady call TIME riding with me I see you all the time passing me by you never say a word and I don't even ask why you never took the time out to invest cause the square ends up cooler then all the rest I'll give you a little time to contemplate but then again It maybe to much on your plate so I'll keep moving on just like my twin because the pursuit of time it never ends I'm rushed, hurried my speed is hastened cause you don't realize the dilemma I'm facing I'm restless, eager my impatiens is getting next to me cause I feel Time is my destiny

The magic of marriage is no fairy tail, it's takes work to make it successful. So don't fall for the 'without a doubt this is the answer' that you have been getting. It's a lot more complex then they make it seem. They leave out the realities of two individual with different personalities trying to compromise too make the union work without losing there own individuality. PS and humor

as I set in St. Leo's church at the service of Wendell Curtis my brother pointed out a picture of Wendell he liked on the obituary I started to think of all our loved ones passing away some suddenly and others slowly in pain and I wished they could stay here with me. Then I thought of how selfish my thoughts were especially if I believe there's a better place for us when we leave here and I asked GOD to forgive me. A few days later I wrote these words. If I truly believe that there's a better place for U and me please forgive me for the thoughts running through my mind why would I want U to stay behind I should say to U don't look back any longer cross over where love is much stronger and in my heart I'll defend my love for U until we meet again why why would I try to deny into our fathers hands Cross Over isn't it beautiful what true faith brings and even though you're gone now only visit me in my dreams thinking back on our memories I don't think I'd change a thing and its been so hard for me to let U go but there's one thing I want U to knows I won't hold U back any longer cross over where love is much stronger and in my heart I'll defend my love for U until we meet again why why would I try to deny into our fathers hands Cross Over would U would U please forgive me for the thoughts running through my mind would U would U please forgive me tell me how selfish am I

In 'The Long Walk Home' part 36 Bogart tells of his beginnings in the hood, and all the things he would see there. After being offered a deal to stay there and just repeat the same thing over and over year after year never to achieve or see a alterative life style. Bogart never quite fitting in, refuses the deal and breaks out on his own. In the song Bogart refers to himself as a 'caged bird' saying this line. 'they tried to cage a bird but these are my songs, but they left the gate open and I flew on'. In Bogart's travels he comes upon a bird sitting on a dead tree branch, singing and mimicking human speech. Stopping to listen too what this Myna Bird has to say, he tells Bogart that he is the last of his kind. He also tells Bogart that his mission is to repeat back to the world all the things that he has seen and heard humans do before he dies. This is the start of 'The Last Myna Bird' Chronicles Part1.There's something special about the Myna bird or any bird that can mimic human speech. Unlike human beings they don't care about your feelings, they don't chose when it is the appropriate time to make a statement. Birds that mimic human speech can't avoid certain topics, or change words around to manipulate the person it's speaking too they are TRULY HONEST. These types of birds can only repeat back to you the exact words it has heard from you. They don't care about fitting in, or what someone thinks of them. IT MUST BE SO FREEING

camouflage, optical illusions, parables, riddles, and quatrains. Some things are designed on purpose to attract you, too draw you in and enlighten you. Some things are designed on purpose to confuse you, too repulse you and keep you in darkness. The words are just written, but the choice is always yours.

inspiration for this song came from a painting by Gigi Boldon called 'The Scream' looking down at the bottom of the painting I wrote SO MANY INNOCENT FALLEN looking at the women with her arms stretched out to the heavens screaming I wrote ALL OF THE FAITHFUL KEEP CALLIN and seeing the never ending tear running down her face I wrote SO MANY TEARS I CAN'T SEE I WISH THAT YOU WOULD COME RESCUE ME I called her a modern day prophet seen every night on the news screaming out for us to stop killing and to love each other but no one listens, and night after night we continue to kill each other Then I thought of KING, KENNEDY, GANDHI, MALCOLM and many others. we KILL everyone with a godly message then I thought of all the prophets in the bible being killed off. generation after generation we KILL everyone with a godly message. Then I imagined the LAST prophet returning to the mountain cave or garden where he first encountered God and saying these words to him THESE WORDS I REALLY DON'T WANT TO SAY TOO U - BUT MY LOVE FOR U WON'T LET ME LIE TO U - I LOOK OUT AT THIS WORLD AND I DON'T KNOW WHATS GOING WRONG - SO MUCH LIFE LOST AND ALL THE LOVE IS GONE - NOW THERE AIN'T NOTHING LORD THAT I WOULDN'T DO - BUT ITS PLAIN TO SEE THAT THEY DON'T CARE FOR U - FROM THE BEGINNING LORD U SET ME APART - AND THEY TOOK MY LIFE FOR WORDS U WROTE ON MY HEART - I WALK THROUGH THE VALLEY BUT U TOOK MY FEAR - SO SET MY SPIRIT FREE AND LEAVE MY FLESH HERE - CLOSE MY EYES AND SILENCE MY SPEECH - LET YOUR SOLDIER REST AND YOUR PROPHET SLEEP - because they don't want to hear me preach - AND AS I CRY DRY AWAY THIS TEAR - BECAUSE THE ONES U SENT ME TO THEY DO NOT HEAR - SO WRAP ME IN WHITE AND FACE ME TO THE EAST - BECAUSE THEY'VE CHOSEN EVIL OVER LOVE AND PEACE - THESE ARE THE WORDS I HEARD THE PROPHET SAY - AS HE WALKED FROM THE MOUNTAIN ON THE FORTY FRIST DAY - THESE ARE THE WORDS I HEARD THE PROPHET SAY - AS HER WALKED FROM THE GARDEN ON THE FORTY FIRST DAY

At the end of the rapper 'FUTURE' performance on the VMA's the cameras turn to the crowd and 3 bodyguards in all black looking like secret service agents. and the ideal came to me. A song from the bodyguards point of view. this is the light weight version. I roll with a super star at the top of her fame all over this world y'all but no one knows my name U don't know who to trust or who loves U when I'm sworn to die protecting U overzealous fans they want to touch a star and I'll always be there so they don't go to far I stay in the shadows y'all because that's the rules but attempt to hurt her and U gone lose now when the show is over paparazzi gone believe one thing she never step alone your just their for the party y'all why she puts on a show but I love her more then U will ever know I ROLL WITH A SUPER STAR AT THE TOP OF HER FAME A LIVING LEGEND Y'ALL RIHANNA'S HER NAME work work work work what's the game plan - hype the name brand get the cover on - every single news stand pimp the new style - damn that's out cold chill in the pint house - rest your soul check the account - now that's respect show up to the venue - for the sound check gather up the crew - pray out loud hit the stage - mesmerize the crowd work work work stop the fairy tail no need to pretend lets keep it 100 I ain't never fitting in I'm like a passing fad a fading trend a puff of smoke and kenn's gone again seldom seen I can't help that Kenn becomes Bo and Bo becomes the Jack U know it's hard to get around a fact so the statement must be true opposites don't attract

BOGART'S HOBBY BEHIND THE MUSIC PART 41 It Won't Be Long Once again Thank you all for keeping my hobby alive. it all comes from you, and your post on fb.one topic is our place, and contribution to history as black people and how it is being manipulate to take us out of it. So i started to write, and it came out like this. For so long you kept it from our sight but they say the truth always seeks the light so proclaim it holy in every way for Gods people speak today bound and shackled by hand and feet but the spirit inside us could not be beat now on the mountain tops we stand awake cause in the southern fields we would not break in the past we've dreamed with some but today we have over come ancestors crying out by any means now stand a new generation of kings and queens it won't be long before we fly before we reach the stars in the sky it won't be long before you see just what we were meant to be how many have sacrificed how many have died so that you may live you are to never bend you are to never break black hands up say we matter black hands up repeat after me in his image - I am - that I am - so - I am in his image - I am - that I am - so - I am quake in the wake of what's coming Gods original seeds have now been summoned to counter act the evil you've done Gods untied the tongue of the quiet one run to the mountains as he shakes the seas fire from the sky on those who deceive heed the words of those of the lost tribe it has been revealed to them that you've lied how dare you deceive what's made in my image as they speak the word of judgment I'll send it for those you've slain and those who grieve from your judgment there is no reprieve God his seed and the spirit are one so it is written so let it be done

July 20th was my anniversary as we set on the deck that night I took a picture of the wine bottle and glasses on the table. I posted it on my instagram page with the comment ' 17yrs today with my wife a Blessing from GOD to me '. then I said to myself these words. WHEN THE WORLDS GOT U DOWN NO NEED TO EXPLAIN ALL U HAVE TO DO IS CALL MY NAME WHEN THE SUN WON'T SHINE THROUGH THE RAIN ALL U HAVE TO DO IS CALL MY NAME I started working on the instrumental a few days ago, and finished writing the song today. here is the instrumental.

On the night of June 22 I was startled out of my sleep by a dream I had. During it there's a flash of bright white light, falling on my face I start to get up and I find myself in front of these glowing beings. one spoke to me saying we are the Anunnaki 'The watchers', what we show you now are visions of what will come to man. And all together in unison they said write this down. FOR THOSE WHO SLEEP OPEN YOUR EYES THE LAMB WALKS WITH WOLVES IN HIS FATHERS DISGUISE THE SAINTS SING A SONG WHICH WE CANT REVEAL BUT YOU CAN HEAR IT ON THE SUNRISE IF YOUR SOUL IS STILL IF YOU CAN READ THE SIGNS FROM COAST TO COAST YOU SEE THE VISIONS OF JOHN ON THE ISLAND OF PATMOS AS KINGS YOU COULD READ THE STARS BEFORE THE DAWN BUT NOW BLIND IS THE FIRST MAN OF ALKEBULAN FOR THOSE WITH THE KNOWLEDGE KNOW WAR IS CLOSE AT HAND FOR THE SOUL OF MABUS LIVES IN THE SANDMAN GATHER UP YOUR STARS FOR WAR UNCLE SAM FOR THE SANDMAN NOW SLAUGHTERS THE INNOCENT LAMB THE VISIONS OF THE PROPHETS HAVE BEGUN AND THE SEAL IN HEAVEN HAS BEEN BROKEN BY THE SON GATHER ALL OF YOUR SOLDIERS FORMULATE YOUR PLAN DO WHAT EVER YOU MUST TO STOP THE SANDMAN UNITED NATION OF BROTHERS THE WORLD IS IN YOUR HANDS DO WHAT EVER IT TAKES TO STOP THE SANDMAN And again all together in unison they said the word BOGART six times. Then one spoke saying WARN THEM all these things are to come to man because YOU WON'T LOVE. the day is come when you will TURN YOUR FACES IN SHAME RUN TO THE MOUNTAINS AND HIDE WARN THEM THAT THE PALE HORSE RIDES and I woke up from the dream.

Watching the Baltimore riots on CNN last night I started to think about the first documented murder when Cain killed Abel, as told of in the Bible, and I thought to myself have we as a people grown at all when it comes this hatred of one another. The tears keep on falling and I can't seem to escape waking every morning astounded and surrounded by so much hate so I went to my father so he could simplify this but wisdom had no answer I said what did we ever do as a people to ever be treated like this I HEAR WHISPERS COMING FROM THE GRAVE AND THEY FEEL THE SPRITE OF CAIN I HEAR WHISPERS COMING FROM THE GRAVE AND THEY YELL ABEL IS MY NAME I don't know why they treat us this way but what I do know is you gone have to pay you choose evil over good remember I told you so what you reap this what you sow blessed are the peace makers you shipped us over here in locks and chains divided up my family and stole my real name now the blood of my people is crying from the ground if you will not live by the law if there is no justice burn it down then you shell die by the law

Well here we go again, date night and we end up at 'Capers' steakhouse on Gratiot. Now why we're waiting on our food, Rochelle and I are talking and I'm looking around at all the couples sitting at there tables and I'm saying to myself they look like a nice couple, and they look like a nice couple. Then I turn my head toward the bar, and theirs one guy sitting by himself. Now if you know how the bar is setup, with the big mirror and the word capers wrote on it with the TV's above this guys back was to me. So the only way I could see his face was to look in the mirror, and he looked SO SAD to me like he was getting ready to CRY. It's like he had been looking around at all the couples too, but through the mirror. Now there was something about the way this guy was dressed. And when I looked at him I said to myself, 'he's one of those old school player, who vowed to never settle down and get married. He would be a bachelor for life, but now that HE'S GETTING OLDER, and all his boys that he us to hangout with, have gotten married and left him behind he's having second thoughts and starting to getting SCARED. Imagining what the rest of his life would be like.' Then I snapped out of it, because the waiter had showed up with the food. The next morning I set down at the kitchen table, and I started to writing what I though this character was going through. #1 when around his married friends he laughs (LIKE A CLOWN) saying he will never settle down but he ENVIES the relationships they have. #2 when he's out and seeing other couples he becomes JEALOUS of what that other man has but he won't admit it because it makes him look soft so he keeps it a SECRET. because he can show no signs of what he believes to be weakness (NOT A TRUE PLAYER) #3 then the old sprite and mentality of the player the DOG IN HIM rises again, and he looks at the women and says to himself I could have HER I could take HER from HIM if I wanted too. Then leave her like he has done all the rest. Then I wrote the hook TELL ME IS IT ENVY OR JEALOUSY THE DOG IN ME SECRETLY IN MY MIND WANT YOU JUST FOR ME Now why I'm writing the first and second verse for the song this ideal hits me of this man pouring out his soul to us. And I imagine him getting up from the bar and coming over to our table and saying these words IT'S NOT WHAT I'M SUPPOSE TO DO BUT YES I'M WARNING YOU SEE WHAT THIS PLAYER FOR LIFE IS TRULY GOING THROUGH TEARS JUST KEEP ROLLIN DOWN OFF THE FACE OF THIS CLOWN CAUSE I'M SO DAMN SCARED OF SETTELING DOWN THERE'S NO ONE ELSE TO BLAME BUT I DON'T FEEL THE SAME NOW THAT I'M OLDER I WANNA CHANGE THE RULES TO THIS GAME BOGART YOU WROTE THE SONG AND DEEP DOWN I KNOW I'M WRONG CAUSE I'M SO DAMN SCARED OF GROWING OLD ALONE

with so many of our loved ones passing away I imagined their last moments on earth with us. I imagined GOD from above saying to them 'TAKE MY HAND' and pulling them up into heaven and I wrote the words 'come take my hand if you would we can take a ride out of the hood way up high above the sky where love never dies we're just rearranged and then changed and parts of us are all the same, open your eyes so you can see that there's something greater for you to be, you know you've been yearning to escape in my hands lies your fate come fly with me high above where there's joy surrounded by love, holy spirit come take control into your hands I command my soul, holy spirit come lift me high into your hands so that I can fly'. To the families of Sutrene Jackson Jasmine Cardenas, Cynthia Bridge, Dallas Williams, and Ronald (lucky) Antenucci rejoice your loved ones have taken their HOLY FATHERS Hand.

A time is going to come when you just cant take it anymore. A time when you know what their doing to you is just wrong, and you cant let them get away with it anymore. A time when you'll have to fight, when you'll have to stand up for what you believe is right. When the nice guy routine just won't work 'RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE'

it's something about the city of Detroit at night its beautiful but deadly. The things you can get away with in the day time, just wont work at night. you become a whole different person at night. Why because they can tell if your the real thing at night and if they don't think so they will check you on it. for example the song 'Why cant they see' we do it different at night its called 'Make The Blind See'

This is weird but I had to share it with you. On January 11th at 3:33am I was startled out of my sleep by a dream I had. In it I'm running through the woods as fast as I can and something is chasing me and I can feel it getting closer and closer, and I'm thinking to myself if I can only make it to the clearing just beyond the woods I'll be safe. and just as I arrive at the clearing there's a flash of bright white light in the sky and I hear the word 'STOP'. Falling on my face I start to get up and I find myself in a valley on a clear day. It's so clear I can see for thousands of miles, but every bird flying in the sky and every car along the road and every person walking on the street is frozen in place unable to move. Looking up into the sky I can see so far it becomes dark and I can see stars and planets in space. Now this sounds crazy but something begins to speak to me from the sky and across the sky symbols and signs start to flash. Now after every statement made to me this thing would say the word ' I ' three times, this is why the song is titled ' I I I '. With the limited resources given to me I have tried to recreated the dream to the best of my ability in the video so you can see what I saw in the dream. Now I don't know how to interpret dreams or even what this song means but this is how it was created.

Sitting on the beach down in Florida during thanksgiving week I Just started thinking about how people come in and out of our lives everyday, and how 1 missed step or 1 action taken can change the course of a persons whole life. If it wasn't for that letter so many years ago how would my life look today. and in that moment of thought I wrote these few words.

During lunch at work as we set around the table a debate started amongst the guys, about what nationality of women could put some lovin on a man the best. we went through them all, and as we argued back and forth a young lady walked by and one of the guys said look at that sister "She gotta Hellava Ass on Her". At the end of the debate we decided that no other nationality of women could put some lovin on a man like a black women could when she was in love. One of the guys said "Ken you should write a song about that". I just laughed it off and went back to work, but then it started in my mind as I unload the line. not to be disrespectful or degrading to women I took the letters in the statement and created the song 'Sister SHAH'

Well I see that its all over now, just like I figured it would turn out Zimmerman Free, another young black man dead, WHAT WAS HIS NAME AGAIN ? and how about Us all TALK and no ACTION. So lets go back to posting about our favorite TV shows, favorite restaurants, favorite drinks, who won the game, and don't forget those summer vacation pics. I'm having the time of my life!! Did you say a prayer for the family ok lets keep it moving WE DID OUR PART. So I guess its time for me to pull out the guitar, take the cover off this old keyboard and do what I do on facebook like everybody else. So what am I going to say on this one, you see that's the problem is all TALK and no ACTION. So I won't say a word, I'll take the next 5 minutes just to ask you 1 question "WHAT U GON DO ? " when you get SHOOK UP to. because its going to happen again. if we don't demand a CHANGE.

My last memory of Malik was that Christmas at bigma’s playing with Cierra on the floor in the living room. The last time I saw him. That next summer bigma was looking for a picture of Malik to put in the back room I told her I had one I could get off of the anniversary video tape, and when I paused the video tape on Malik picture something I call Gods music box opened in my mind, and I imagined not me finding this picture, but Cierra finding the picture years later and I imagined what her thoughts would be, or what she might say, And this is the music & words I wrote that day.

We all do it in our own way, some of us not at all, but who am I to judge what is right or what is wrong, but I will tell you what I believe any positive word to another person that ‘Lifts Us Higher’ is always a blessing. I will never be ashamed or afraid to express what GOD means to me he is an awesome GOD

Who are we to judge, but we do it all the time, who’s worthy and who’s not. I started to wonder if at the end of my life, would I be worthy to enter into heaven. I imagined myself going through the tunnel into the light, and I heard music playing. I saw souls with their hands up dancing, celebrating that they had made it into heaven. When I arrived at the party and started to look around, I was surprised at the people I saw there Besides all the good people you would expect to see in heaven I saw drug addicts, scam artist, pimps, and strippers, rich people who never helped anyone, murders, prostitutes, liars, racist, atheist, and alcoholics We judge one another so much down here, but do we really know who God will forgive. In the vision I saw one who looked like God saying these words to people I thought would never hear them. The words “from now on to the end of time I’ll be forever yours and you’ll be forever mine”. This was how the song “Hands Up” was created

During the tragedy of 911, I saw people putting up and out flags all over this country to show their... read more patriotism. And I wrote the words ‘put them up so the world can see that you don’t want to mess with me’. And I started to think about real bravery, and those who are truly brave. Now at the end of the day when I was getting off of work I would stand outside waiting for the bell to punch out. During this time I would see guys riding up on there motorcycles in leather jackets with tattoos that looked like scares, looking tuff like they might be brave. I would think to myself are they truly brave or do they just look the part. And I thought of those in the military. And I wrote the words ‘when they call me up I’m one of the brave I have battle scares for wars I’ve been through you talk a good game but you scared to bruise but if not take this purple heart and walk in my shoes. Some of them come back with real tattoos missing arms, missing legs, burnt up. Then I knew my nephew was one of the truly brave. I would like to dedicate this song to my nephew Matthew, and to all the members of the U.S. armed forces. THANK YOU.I imagine what they have seem I wrote the words ‘sometimes its hard for me to believe just what I’ve been through where I started and made it to’. In the symbol that the marines use, a globe, eagle, and anchor. The eagle hold a scroll with the words “simper fidelis” in Latin meaning always faithful or loyal so I wrote the words ‘And as long as the eagle flies above me forever faithful I will be’

Sometime it gets to me all the violence hearing of someone being killed almost everyday In the news not only in Detroit but all over, and when They found 5 year old Mariha Smith body burned in a abandoned house back in july I started to imagine what it must look like from heaven if the angels or God was looking down at us on earth and seeing how we treat each other and I wrote the words they must be crying over us and this was the inspiration for the song ‘CRYING OVER US’. Detroit must stop the violence our children are DYING don't lose HOPE & FAITH in GOD. To the memory of all the children killed in Detroit.

Jamaica Moonlight (smugglers anthem) this thing I call Gods music box Anything can trigger it at anytime of the day or night no matter where I am something I see, something I hear, something said by another person, a mood or feeling I get. But once it starts in my mind it won’t stop, it will repeat over and over again, if I try to ignore it, I can’t sleep at night. I have to get up go down into the basement and put it down. While on vacation with my wife in Ochos Rios Jamaica walking on the beach one night the moon was so huge over the water, and the resorts are lit so beautifully at night I started to imagine, or maybe it was the contact hi from everyone smoking weed, drug smugglers moving quietly, flying in low under radar, guided only by the moonlight. The drop over the water, the men all in black With speed boats making the pickup, a black van at the shore waving them in. and we stopped walking and set on the beach and I said to myself what would it sound like in musical form, and the music box in my mind opened and this is what I heard that night in my mind and Jamaica Moonlight was created.

Blaze It Up (final shootout mix) When I wrote Blaze it up, the ideal was to have this music playing in the background of a police shootout with the bad guys, something You would hear in a movie, the foot chase, the explosions, the diving, the firefight, the high speed pursuit. I didn’t really know what to do for the video then I remembered a trip To Las Vegas, sin city, so much to do, so much to see. I was running through Vegas so fast It seemed like everything was on fire. The video doesn’t fit what the music was made for but it’s the best I could do here It is.

I told you earlier that anything can trigger it and the music will come, so I’ll keep it real with you On the streets of Detroit the N word has not been put to rest and it was the inspiration for the song you know as Follow Me The real name of the song ‘Nigga what Nigga who Nigga please’ and if you listen to the flute being played you will hear those exact words. To have another person walk up on you in the streets of Detroit and accuse you of being somewhere and doing something that you had nothing to do with, has evoked this passionate response many times, and from the anger of this happening to me came Follow Me.

[Tribute to Jazz & Bakers Lounge] No it wasn’t a dream it was real, and it’s still out there, you just have to know where to look. I’m talking about a time before autotune, a time of real singers, bass players, piano players, horn and guitar player, a time when there was a real guy on drums, not a digital programmed drum machine a time when the music had feeling, if one of the guys in the band was having a bad night you could hear it in the music, and the time when you heard a perfect set. Remember the time when the guys in the band would improvise adding their own special touch to a song. You didn’t see a computer over in the corner tracking every second of a song, pulling out all the variation and feeling out of that song. Keeping the show right on time. The 18TH Street Shuffle by Bogart Robinson, a tribute to Bakers Keyboard Lounge, Detroit Jazz, and all the real musicians. Thanks for the past memories, good times, and the good times to come. It’s not over yet! Sometimes you just hit a bump in the road.

Fathers Day Special – Slim Meets the Queen Anything can trigger it at anytime of the day or night no matter where I am. This thing I call Gods music box. Something I see, something I hear, something said by another person. But once it starts in my mind it won’t stop, it will repeat over and over again, if I try to ignore it, I can’t sleep at night. I have to get up go down into the basement and put it down. For example growing up I’ve heard my father say in many different ways these words about meeting my mother ‘boy before I met your mother I was running the streets wild here there & everywhere’ or ‘thank God I met your mother ain’t no telling where I would be right now if I hadn’t’. I would just say to him ok dad not paying much attention to what he was saying. Until one night when he spoke of meeting her again, and on that night I would create the Instrumental called ‘Slim Meets the Queen’. That night was being video taped by 2 people and I wanted to share it with you, take a look and listen. By the way in my father younger day they would call him ‘hike & slim’ and my mother Queen. I dedicate this to my Father Happy Fathers Day DAD.

In the back seat of the car on the way to my Aunt Doris house I would create my master plan. I couldn’t wait I had to get to it. As my dad drove up to the front of the house the hounds from hell would jump To their feet barking like crazy, ready to attack anyone that step on the property this was a problem for my mom and dad, but not for me I was 8 or 9 this had been going on for years, I was a master at this by now. I’d get out of the car run up on the porch between the dogs patting them on the head and start into the house, and I would laugh to myself because my mom & dad would still be standing on the curb hollering up at the house ‘somebody come get these dogs’ ‘somebody come put these dogs up’ because if they took one step toward the front porch they would be eaten live, and I’d think that’s what you get for never playing with the dogs. When I got into the house I would never speak to anyone it was a waste of time, remember I was on a mission and I couldn’t be too obvious I had to be smooth with ever move I’d make. I’ve always been good at making myself invisible. Straight into the kitchen open up the refrigerator door because my aunt Doris would buy these cherries that came in a glass jar. Every time we’d visit I would get 3 or 4. Hoping to hear laughing and talking coming from the basement, this would mean everything in my master plan was falling right into place, and all the guys were playing pool. Straight down into the basement I’d go pretending to be interested in the game, I could care less. I was going to watch my uncle, big Mooch, big Moochie, Monsenior Cardenas, waiting for him to grab a pool stick if he grabs a stick he was playing and all his attention would be on the game. That was the go signal for me I’d turn run full speed back upstairs through the dinner room to my uncle’s guitar I had full control now, I was amazed by this thing as a kid I didn’t know how to play it I could barley hold it, but it was magical to me the sounds it could make. Show, Gia, LaMico, Wakene, Patrice, do you remember the guitar? I would hate going to the house and finding that no one was playing pool that meant I would only get a minute or two on the guitar because my uncle didn’t want me to break it. But if you wonder what happened to that guitar you can see it in the picture. Years later my uncle was sick and we went to visit him and the guitar was given to me by my aunt Doris. So when you listen to this song called ‘Gods music Box’ it’s not only me playing that guitar but deep down in those notes somewhere is my uncle Monsenior Cardenas. You never know something’s stay with a child forever. Dedicated to the memory of my uncle.

The Storm I was joking with a guy I work with and I told him if I ever switched over to rock and roll I would destroy him (he has a band) because I’m just that good of a musician. He said to me ‘brother you may think you’re good, but only in your own mind’. The statement knocked the wind out of me. I could have taken the statement negatively, and defended myself but I didn’t. I had it coming to me. During lunch that day I started to think about what he said to me, and two thoughts came to mind. The first was when you come to the end of your time, and look back over your life it really doesn’t matter what others think of you. Only that you need to be satisfied, with your life and have no regrets at the end. This was the spark or start of the song that Bogart calls ‘The Storm’. The second thought was that there are two types of people in this world, the first type live life to the fullest, not that they succeed at everything they do, but are not afraid to try. And I wrote these words We live life – to the extreme -We fulfill – every dream-So when it comes – to the end of our time-Will be legends – in our own minds-We make no excuses – for the way that we live-We give it all – to there’s no more to give-You might not accept – the way that we play-But we have pledged to live – and die this way The second type have regrets at the end of life because they couldn’t bring themselves to even try, a doubt in their minds something stopping them. A fear of failing, a fear of what others might think of them. In this group you can see some have just given up on life’s dreams completely. Some can fool you, because on the outside it looks like they have themselves all together. Popular, outgoing, knowing just the right words to say at the right time, smooth with every move they make. But on the inside never feeling they’re good enough. So I wrote the words Your swagger tight – I see how you move-You talk a good game – but we ain’t all fooled-There’s one place – where you can not hide - And that’s from that storm – that rages inside -Look in the mirror – at the wrinkles on your face - That’s the storm taking time – that can’t be replaced -I see your dreams – fading away -As you work that 9 – to 5 everyday When the second group looks at the first group these thoughts go through their minds. Why can’t I be like them, time is running out for me, they can do anything, why am I so afraid, I wish I could live like them, they can do it all, when are you going to do something, the clock it ticking, you hate them but really want to be them. And you envy them at the same time. These thoughts in your minds are what I call ‘The Storm’ the inner battle with yourself. So I wrote the words So you better get to liven – while living is good -Or look back on it all – and wish that you would -We’re the kind – you don’t have to put in check -Cause when it comes to the end – will have no regrets - Every rumor – you heard – and read -It’s all true – cause we live life on the edge-Caution signs – you have been warned -You’re walking – in the storm -These are your – caution signs -Because you’re – runnin out of time In the beginning I said that I didn’t take the statement negatively that’s not true The Ken you know didn’t feel the need to defend himself so he let it go. But the inner Ken the one that calls himself ‘Bogart’ said don’t let him get away with that. So I wrote this line in the song for the ladies to say He does things I’ve seen -Only in my dreams -You would be amazed – it’s true -At all the things that he can do - Come rain or shine this time -I’m going to make him mine -Hey my new boo -can I - come spend some time with you

I met her 16 years ago, & I wrote the words ‘even though so many years have gone and pasted away in my mind it seems like yesterday’ and today I can’t imagine what my life would be like without her. About 3 years ago we were in Kroger’s grocery store & she was putting a bag of oranges in the cart, & as I watched her I said to myself that I would be with her for the rest of my life, because I realized that I love her more now then when we first got together& I wrote the words ‘for ever and ever know this is true I’ll be right here with you’ you see all this time, all these years together was making me realize this. When I first saw her I said I don’t have a chance she’s to beautiful but I approached her anyway, & I wrote the words ‘and when she turned to walk away I couldn’t let her get away because I knew she was the one’ but I didn’t know she was the one back then, time has told me this. When everything was going great I didn’t know, when we were partying and having a good time I didn’t know but when everything started going wrong, and nothing was working out she came to me and said we can get through this, that’s when I knew she was the one & that’s why I wrote the words ‘when the rain starts to fall it will be you and I against them all’ because she has always been there for me, this year we will have been married 14 years and its easy for me to say my heart and my soul and my love belongs to Rochelle
