Welcome back and big shout outs go out to our first “commentator,” Miss Lori Johnson, who chimed in with “Hey MKM I have got to say I REALLY like this blog site. I am anxious to see the evolution! “Music is the healing force of the world.” Got to give it up for Full Force… a truly unsung and underrated group for sure…” Lori’s compassionate words have inspired us to keep things moving along, so we’ll pick up where we left off last time…

Music has been part of man literally since primates could tell that dawn turns into dusk. We’ve seen the rise and fall of vinyl records, tape; even the CD is being overshadowed by digital downloads. So, is the music industry better off today than it was in yesteryear? Has mankind progressed… or declined? Of course, this all depends on how you see the glass filled. If you noticed our musical timeline in ISSUE 1, you should have an idea that music has transformed from a spiritual necessity–into a pure commodity over the last century or so. With that said, I ask where are we in the world with respect to the music industry? Do you think it’s sound and resolute, considering the fact it was pretty much an innocent means of socialization mere decades ago?

Although the music industry probably lost its virginity in the 1950s, June of 1985 is when it found its spirit. Man must always remember that we are the world. When tragedies such as Hurricane Katrina, and the more recent Japanese earthquake, floods in Asia, and in America’s Midwest region; “society finally realized for the first time, again, that man is the first and last means of rescue and rebuild for the modern world.” I emphasize this, because when the “We Are The World” campaign was launched in 1985 by Quincy Jones, Lionel Richie and Michael Jackson, a few more than just the people from my Sony/Columbia Records team thought it would get high off the ground. Needless to say, that collaboration is still the barometer for many of the global musical events hosted by large non-profit organizations. Let’s not forget there were many stories, and we’ve got the skinny–so if you use your Superior Intellect, you can hone in on where we’ll pick up next week!

    We have to begin to focus on the healing power again. Because we live in such a negative world and all of the negativity seems to spread like a cancer infecting people attitudes toward each other. I guess that is why I do not listen to Hip Hop like I used to. Because ,How many times and how many ways can one talk about 1.How much money you got 2. How many women want you 3. How many ways to kill your fellow man. 4.How many diamonds you got. Excuse the expletive ” That shit is tired” I recorded a Hip Hop Concert in early 2010. I have never seen so may broke azz Lil Wayne,Young Jeezy, Waka Flaka, Gucci Mane, etc clone rappers. It is ironic that the so-called music industry has a lock on the minds of so many black men, that many of them have a Homicidal,Suicidal,Genocidal mentality because of the constant bombardment of negativity in the music. It is time to restore the sanity. I have been called a “Hater” because I will say something that is unpopular with younger people. some will listen and some won’t because that only thing they are exposed to is constant,consistent, and continuous negativity. They throw millions at these cats and they do little or nothing to give back to the communities fro, where they came. L.A. Jackson & At-Will Musicology 2101 That’s what time it is!!!!!
