  1. Ari is a culture vulture, straight up.

      Ahhh…no he’s not. Please stop it

    • @Renee Baptiste actually he is, I grew up in Seattle and am in 206zulu. this guy never once popped up at any time throughout the hip Hop scene despite being born the same year as myself. I grew up in the central district and this guy ari grew up in snooty white magnolia and went to an exclusive private school. I dropped out of school initially, ended up at middle college, and kicked it at Garfield and Nova. where was Ari melber? LOL definitely not in the hood. he was up at a private school, never once hopped in one of our street ciphers or built at the seattle central community college with any of us activists. so please, do yourself a favor and know that of which you speak. Ari melber is a propaganda tool pumped out by msnbc.

    This interview was awesome, inspiring and insightful. It’s funny how he eludes to kung fu shows/movies as his inspiration bc that’s definitely me since a kid and I’m grown woman. I love my Asian dramas I learn alot from them. If you’re spiritual you’ll find a lot of spiritual revelations from these shows/movies.

  14. So good TY

    Joe and the Biden family doing deals with Chinese WHILE HE IS VP and MSNBC not only doesn’t tell you about it, they want you to focus on some empty checking account Trump had in China 6-7 YEARS AGO!!!

    • Biden isn’t the VP and nobody cares about your conspiracy theory propaganda. Go blab that garbage on some fox news videos where the rest of your sheep herd is at.

  17. Great Interview

  18. Interesting to note how I’ve always been in receiving of BDP as roots to the Wu…but Rza notes not KRS inspiration.I woulda thought.
