Boycotting him for calling the president of babylon a waste man? Good for him I say, and I agree with him.

Agreed. More than anything I was disappointed with how many Rasta musicians from JA made comments of approval or love for Obama during his visit. All it takes is opening a speech with some broke as patois to gain approval from people down there?

Big Ups to Chronixx for calling it out, for real.

That being said, I wouldn't boycot Etana just because she was praising Obama on her facebook when he came through..

Don't get on my man Obama. He's the best president we've had since i've been alive, 57 years, hands down. You can't make honey out of battery acid, he's done quite well with what he was handed, a babylonian mess. I like the tune though!

Love that reggae!

Nomo, not a fan of Clinton? Politics can get us in trouble but I always have felt he was the best president of my lifetime. I am sure I will hear a few monica jokes but in all fairness the economy was rolling and doing with him in charge so I could care less about the Monica scandal. That does bring up a moral debate about our leader and his example but I am speaking as far as how well our country was run. Sadly then Mr bush ruined everything.
Re: Chronixx play some roots

I loved Clinton. But he was not handed the mess that Obama was. Clinton had wisdom to balance the budget and i think it was one of the factors in the economy taking off in the late 90's. I don't care about the monica thing either, but with him it was a string of women, that man could not keep his johnson in his pants. And that was a weakness.

Obama has had the nutters on him since he was elected, calling him everything from kenyan to socialist to muslim. I know how i would react to that, so the fact that he doesn't refer to the house republicans as 'You lazy racist duplicitous tea party ba$tards' makes me think he's a pretty great man. He thinks before he shoots and considers more than the surface looks of an issue. He's got one of the worst jobs on earth. I think 100 years from now he'll be viewed pretty darn well.

Well you'll fit right in with the new school Barack O' Selassie is the unrwitten 3rd coming of Christ Rastaa crowd in a few decades...

Yikes.

And then theres the idea that it's all a play, while the fans rooting for either team are still just paying their taxes to ticketmaster to pretend they have a say...

Either way, telling someone else "Don't get on my man,______" is a rude attempt to force others to agree with your perspective. I don't care who the man or woman you're defending at the time is.... You're not going to get anywhere telling people what to believe.

Actually Nomo, it IS a stage, and these guys are straight puppets who bow to their masters (corporate/military).
Yes Obama is better than Bush, but thats not saying much. He was dealt a bad hand, but nobody forced him to sign the NDAA or appoint former Monsanto CEO's to the EPA/USDA/FDA (or maybe he was forced?).

It's my belief that nothing will change for the better until we make 3rd Parties viable (Green!). Dems/Reps are both corporate owned, and if one can't see that clearly now then I don't have anything else to say...

It really would, I am starting to feel like the whole republican/democrat thing is just a cycle. We have had a democrat in office for awhile and now they will make sure we have a republican. If we had a legit 3rd party that could run against corporate America it would be amazing.

I think that's a foolish statement by Midnite, or at least a historically inaccurate one. Even Selassie's government dealt with "big business", modernization, and fraternizing with "babylonian" world leaders. Humans are humans, and are prone to human tendencies, including Rastas, Selassie, and self-righteous reggae bands/fans.

I personally think Midnite's statement is TRUE "all government is over, just big businesses" it is a great point Iyah and one I feel will only continue to get worse. Governments are in the business to make money. For example our police force, run by our state and federal government is only being used now to gather money for our country. In Bend, OR they all have new police cars, the old ones used to say PROTECT AND SERVE, new ones do not. Sadly that is not happening anymore, most police officers are out to make commissions for themselves and make money for the government. You go 7 over the speed limit and they are all over you, they see you have a Bob Marley shirt on and they want to search your car. Why? Because it makes them more money. Ask them to come out because your neighbor is acting crazy and screaming at his wife and you are worried someone will get hurt, well that costs money so unless you can tell them someone is getting hurt they will not come out anymore. BABYLON SHITSTEM!
Re: Chronixx play some roots
April 17, 2015 02:29AM
Iyah, no disrespect at all.

"Will there be any coming to common terms of agreement or clarity in terms of how to interpret the actions of His Majesty while denying this truth of history and prophecy?"

I interpret the actions of Haile Selassie through historical thinking, research and reasoning, yet I do not see him through a religious lense as you do, so we will probably not find a lot of common ground. However, I stand by my idea that humans act as humans, so I am not quick to categorize or generalize the many complexities of human history with broad religious terms like "babylon" or whatever. It just seems lazy and an easy way out, if not a little self-righteous, and can be used against anything one might disagree with. With that, I disagree with Midnite that there was once some "pure" form of government in contrast to the "big business" of every government in human history.

Re: Chronixx play some roots

Pick and choose is not an option in historical study. How is learning from all texts and no texts (the sun, moon, stars, nature) lazy? I don't understand. At this point agreeing to disagree would be our best option. I tried to find the common ground you requested.

So no one has substance in their thoughts and opinions unless they worship Selassie? Yes, I think we should agree to disagree; common ground is definitely in our disagreement. There are other paths besides Selassie, even if you refuse to accept those paths.

Have a good day Iyah.

Sure. Thanks for asking.

When I was 22, I met a Spiritual Teacher of sorts. He had spent much time with Baba Muktananda, a Shivaite... He then moved on to be initiated by some 20 more great eastern teachers, into their specific lineages of divinity. He was a living book, and I give thanks for the 4 years of time we got to share. During that time, I learned many techniques of divinization, and most importantly, the reasoning behind ascension. What is the point? What do we do when we get there? What IS a spiritual vehicle? These techniques work. They allow for the truth to settle in. None of them lean on the Bible.

No one man on Earth is the Most high of itself. The Most High is the most high, and there are always great masters and mystics on earth. If there weren't, Earth would have been destroyed by war long ago. In my opinion, the bible is the greatest tool of control on Earth. I believe it was written to be this.. Written by man that is... The ancestors of the controlling power on Earth in the modern day wrote that book...

As for my study into Rastafari. I learned of the vague reference Marcus (who I believe to be a very great man) made to looking to africa for the crowning of a black King. My question was, if Marcus Garvey was alive during and after Haile Selassie's coronation, does he see Selassie as the fulfilment of his own prophecy? I wondered this for long time, before I finally was referenced by a friend to the link I posted. I recognize that anything can be "made up" and posted on the internet. I also recognize that there is a huge chance this is not a fabricated editorial, but a direct exerpt of Garveys writings. The comments underneath the editorial are very interesting as well.

basically Iyad, I read your fanatical posts as ironic, because in the long run, you may very well be wrong... But you won't let it go to know in this life most likely, so you might not get that humbling til ya get freed up from the body again.

BTW, looking at the way JA glorified Obama last week really did show me (unfortunately enough) that all it takes is being a smooth talking dark skinned man with power... Doesn't matter what ya did with the power, as long as you can say "Wha Gwan" to a bunch of college kids, theyll glorify ya day and night... It gave me some more perspective on the Selassie thing..

J, you are trying to speak falsely for me by putting words in my mouth; I did not say nor did I even come close to imply what you stated in speaking for me with "So no one has substance in their thoughts and opinions unless they worship Selassie?". My previous comment was more of a direct suggestion specifically for you. Nevertheless, your avoidance techniques renders reasoning with you very similar to reasoning with some Bible thumping fundamentalists, I guess you guys have some common ground. Makes me tired. I'm good with the common ground of agreeing to disagree for the sake of time. Bless

It seems to me like you are acting way more like a "bible thumping fundamentalist", as you feel the need to make suggestions to other people about how to live their lives based on your personal belief on God. Throw Hypocrite on the list too!

Not speaking for him, I'm speaking for myself. I am allowed to express my opinion on a conversation you're holding on a public reggae message board. I think my posts are relevent.

Not trying to make an arguement... Just was sitting here reading this thread and laughing at the obvious hypocracies that started to occur around the time you started preaching. Should I not speak my truth?

It's all good... You might find you have an easier time believing whatever you want once you stop pushing it on others, or thinking of your own personal beliefs as superior to other belief systems.

When it comes up to it, Rastafari is a Bible based Belief System. It's beautiful, its devotional, its upful, its got the island vibes... I love it.. But it's not the only way to realization by any means. Givin thanks for the empowerment of a downpressed race on Earth, and all the intentions of the movement. It's a riteous movement. I don't care who they call God, or what book they read.

At a certain point it becomes as simple as, if the devotion to divine is authentic, and it reflects in one's actions, thats amazing. There's not enough of that in this world today. Reggae Music as well the Rastafari movement both do well to put more of it in the world.

Daniel, the reference of 2,000 year old text is an approximation for practical purposes, but the specific reference is to Revelation 5:5 “The Lion of the tribe of Judah has triumphed”. Yes, the Lion of Judah was a general epithet for the one on the ruling throne of Ethiopia, but in this case, specifically referencing Haile Selassie.

Have you studied any spiritual history besides the Bible? There were masters here long before Jesus, and all throughout those "2,000 years". What were we missing, that somehow returned 2,000 years later if the divine is all places, all times?

A true master is not a savior to be worshipped for redemption, but a being who helps all life recognize and develope their own innate ability to realize themselves as a ray of the Most High. This is just one of the functions of one of these beings. Much of their works are in the higher planes, with feet on the Earth plane.

The pursuit of divine has never been and never will be a belief system meant to be pushed on others with a sense of pittyfor what one thinks they might not know. It is a choice, an active teacher, and is dynamic to every unique moment in time. You surely can't hold it in a book. The best a book can do is teach you to read and assimilate the inner book, which lives in the subtle resonance of life. They call it the Shabda in sanskrit... the audible life current.

The Almighty is the Potter and we are the vessels, cut and clear; with that, His Majesty wasn't just a nice guy, but of Divine authority. At the end of the day, it doesn't matter what you or I agree or disagree with, it only matters what "is"; and in terms of simplicity, it seems most beneficial to submit to that instead of arguing and debating according to a personal opinion. Denying what "is" is a form rebellion, not in a "Soul Rebel" kind of way, but a rebellion against our Creator

This quote comes off to me as an attitude of "accept haile selassie as God or be stuck in illusion". Is that not what you meant? If you did mean something to that effect, I'm going to tell you that it's an ignorant and closed minded stance to take. I'm not denying that devotion to Selassie can bring one to states to realization. These days I more wonder if Haile Selassie as an idol, or an embodyment for a spiritually inclined people to place their devotion, has raised them to a certain level of attainment through somewhat of a placebo effect.

Do you believe that a person is not spiritually liberated unless it is through devotion to Haile Selassie?

In response to your question on 2,000 year old fulfilment of biblical prophecy in modern times;

If the bible was written by man (primarily from the controlling factions now calling themselves illuminati and so forth) in order to manifest a state of complete manipulation and control for 5,000 some odd years (i'm speaking of old testiment as well), why should I see biblical prophecy fulfilled as anything more than a continuation of that controlling faction? Why DID Selassie flea his country to go sit with a bunch of Europeans while his people fought and died for their freedom? It's the Ras's on the battlefield who fought back the italians that should be glorified, if anyone, for the freedom of Ethiopia in that time. The Book of revelations is merely the downpressor 5000 years ago writing us now to tell us exactly what they plan to do. If they put it in the form of biblical text, they can gain unconscious consent of the people. The consent is what allows the events to take place. Personally, I do not consent to the revelations end times play.

"...When I spoke at Geneva in 1936, there was no precedent for a head of state addressing the League of Nations. I am neither the first, nor will I be the last head of state to address the United Nations, but only I have addressed both the League and this Organization in this capacity. The problems which confront us today are, equally, unprecedented. They have no counterparts in human experience. Men search the pages of history for solutions, for precedents, but there are none. This, then, is the ultimate challenge. Where are we to look for our survival, for the answers to the questions which have never before been posed? We must look, first, to Almighty God, Who has raised man above the animals and endowed him with intelligence and reason. We must put our faith in Him, that He will not desert us or permit us to destroy humanity which He created in His image. And we must look into ourselves, into the depth of our souls. We must become something we have never been and for which our education and experience and environment have ill-prepared us. We must become bigger than we have been: more courageous, greater in spirit, larger in outlook. We must become members of a new race, overcoming petty prejudice, owing our ultimate allegiance not to nations but to our fellow men within the human community."

His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie I
Oct. 6, 1963

Indeed Nomo, and didn't Haile Selassie appoint the Abuna Yesehaq to Jamaica to address this? Did Abuna Yesehaq wind up baptizing Bob Marley, and presiding over his funeral rites?

Daniel, you are asking rhetorical questions at this point as I have no doubt you are aware of such matters of History.

Not rhetorical in the least. I DO have some awareness of 'matters of history'. What I don't have an awareness of is what IyahTrod believes "came to pass in the 20th century" that was "referenced in ancient text" so please elaborate...

I personally would say that my views expressed in the above post at the core are inline/not counter to those of the Rastafari 12 Tribes; perhaps the initiator of this thread, Ras Adam, can edify where I may be mistaken on that

Based on the trend, it is highly unlikely that we will forward the reasoning in a logical manner; so, I will close out with some words of wisdom from one of the top two presidential hopefuls:

That Chronixx tune has a really similar hook to capture land. The song is alright... Not one of my faves that he's put out. Gotta keep the fresh hooks coming! smiling smiley

This is one of my favorite topics in awhile. Ras Adam got it started in the first post with the Obama remark. Awesome stuff.

The archives are rich with this and feuds of different nature.

Do you understand that people on Earth have found spiritual sustinence through means other than the Bible since time began?

Are you okay with the fact that people who do not subscribe to Biblical philosiphy still love Reggae music?

It's nothing new to me that my perspective of the Divine Reality on Earth and everywhere else differs from that of most, if not all Rasta and otherwise Biblically based belief systems.

I respect the enlightenment that you have found for yourself on your path, without judgement. Can you say the same to me?

we don't deny his divinity(anointed by God) but we see His Majesty and others in his line as placeholders until Shiloh(the biblical Christ's return) and in that we differ from most mansions. but a thread about a new chronnixx tune is no place for any of this. bless, a

No problem Roots, in all sincerity, I wish you Jah Guidance and Protection on your continued path of enlightenment. If you choose to slow down and read my posts in this thread more carefully, and follow the flow I think you will indeed answer two of the three questions you posed to me. I will chalk off some of your previous false assumption and blatant projections onto my thinking as a reflection of your personal quest for liberation from whatever may have bound you; as you seek to choose your own path. Trust you have that (your own path), as you have free will. Prayerfully, and indeed as long as you hold onto Jah, you Will find your feet planted on a solid ground. One Love

Say a prayer and shed a tear for me. Don't forget to pitty me too! winking smiley

BTW you never did share your thoughts on the link I posted.

Yeah, really does sound like they took one of the hooks from Capture Land, moved it up an octave, and put it on repeat.

Most of the singers in Reggae music these days seem to work with producers who hand them a pre-produced rhythm to work with. I love a lot of the products of this method, but I still can't help but notice it doesn't take nearly as much talent and creativity on behalf of the songwriter to produce tunes like this. It's a far cry from songwriters like Bob Marley and Peter Tosh, who composed the music to each song, as well as the lyrics.

It would be nice to see some youths coming up in this "revival" movement who actually write their own progressions and skank the chords while they sing. Is that considered old school at this point? Anyway, loving the freshness, perspective, and soul within most of Chronixx music. Just like Jah 9 or Protoje, I'm stoked to see where he's at it 5 or 10 years. Not every song is gonna be a hit.

Same riddim as "I really Like You" which IMO is a way better tune.

The riddim culture is strong, but there are plenty of current reggae tracks that are produced solely for the specific song. Look at Protoje's new album for 1 example.

For sure. I dig it.. It's great to listen to mix tapes that segue between different artists tracks on the same rhythm. I also appreciate how folks like Chronixx and Protoje have their own exclusive touring bands. This gives all those rhythms a personal feel in the live setting.

It's just hard not to recognize how easy the singer/lyricists really have it within that framework. I'm loving Ancient Future.. It's fantastic from start to finish.. Protoje's got some mastermind skills on the lyrical cadences. I'd still be that much more impressed if he sat down with a guitar and built each rhythm from the ground up, himself. Winta James is the man with the plan, apparently.

So now I feel like I've gotta start giving big ups to the producers of the heavy rhythms almost more than the lyricists. Funny how that goes.

Yes, this I appreciate as a former member of a band that wrote songs like this or as a full band in rehearsal, it all started with the lyrics and was built on from there. Unfortunately, this current trend is not restricted to reggae.

A good one from the same riddim but came out a little bit before Sara Lugo X Protoje was 'Can't Bridge My Defense' by Righteous Child aka RC.





i'm a big supporter of this artist; I feel like the SNWMF crowd would feel the same way
