Light years are interchangeable with years of living in darkness. The role of darkness is not to be seen as, or equated with, ignorance, but with the unknown, and the mysteries of the unseen.

We claim the present as the pre-sent, as the hereafter. We are unraveling our navels so that we may ingest the sun. We are not afraid of the darkness, we trust that the moon shall guide us. We are determining the future at this very moment. We know that the heart is the philosophers’ stone. Our music is our alchemy. We stand as the manifested equivalent of 3 buckets of water and a handful of minerals, thus realizing that those very buckets turned upside down supply the percussive factor of forever. If you must count to keep the beat then count. Find your mantra and awaken your subconscious. Walk your circles counterclockwise. Use your cipher to decipher coded language, manmade laws. Climb waterfalls and trees; commune with nature, snakes and bees. Let your children name themselves and claim themselves as the new day for today We are determined to be the channelers of these changing frequencies into songs, paintings, writings, dance, drama, photography, carpentry, crafts, love, and love. We enlist every instrument: acoustic, electronic. Every so-called gender, race, sexual preference. Every per-son as beings of sound to acknowledge their responsibility to uplift the consciousness of the entire fucking world. Any utterance unaimed, will be disclaimed, will be maimed - true rappers slain. Any utterance unaimed, will be disclaimed, will be maimed - true rappers slain.
