Over the last month or two, there has not been a day that I haven’t listened to at least one of the TLC albums. Something about the movie that has resurrected my undying love for them. I remember, as a child, the Oooohhh on the TLC Tip LP being my first musical experience. It was in 1992 (I’d just turned 5) when the album first came out and I remember, quite distinctively, my mom coming home from work, me running up to her to hug her, and her handing me the cassette tape of the album. I remember saying to myself “Why are these girls dressed like men and leaping all over this picture.” But, I was curious enough to immediately end my day of playing outside to go listen to it….in its entirety. From that moment forward, there was not a day that passed that anyone could tell me that I wasn’t a member of TLC. Hahahahaha. It was bad enough that (ill save them the embarrassment of mentioning their names) as I grew older I’d make singing groups with my cousins to emulate them. I’d like to say that their impression on me, at that age, made a great enough impact on me to manifest itself into the person I am now. Its so unfortunate that in today’s world of music, kids are reduced to some of the music we have today. However, my love for TLC would only grow throughout the years and I couldn’t be happier to say that TLC was the first “music” i’d ever experienced. Its incredibly sad that Left Eye isn’t alive to continue making music with her group for I believe that no artist or group today would be able to compare had she not been called home. For some reason I felt compelled to share this story, my fanmail.

No Muncho’s for you Christian.
I was made to believe there was something wrong with me
That who god gave me to be was less than that of a born man
My people yearn for more
Their vision limited to what society’s given them.
In a nation that emphasizes equality. But promotes segregation.
Oh how the American dream
Afraid to leave my house at night
Afraid of our daughters crime
Afraid of our ancestors past
How can I ever learn to be comfortable with who I am.
The mirror lies to me
Because if I was born in his image
I wouldn’t be plagued with insecurity
Processed heads and unnatural minds
I can recall every lyric and rhyme
But cant tell you when my fathers died.
Unaware of what my people need.
Unaware of why my brother hates me.
Standing under a flag that has yet to recognize me with my own rights.
Working to no retirement.
I have very little sanity.
I won’t conform.
Imagine this for 10 minutes straight as the welcome gift home. LOL #dogownerproblems @kandpnick come get ur nephew!!!!
