There's Still No Rest For Weary PT.2

There was no rest for the weary..word from residents of Syria;  so why did they expect it? 

Even though the Lord blessed us..for some the outlook is still bleary; like Christians attacked in Nigeria...especially after being disrespected! 

I disconnected from the mainframe...disappearing like Venus will in June..intergalactic voyages taken out beyond Pluto / Mars...a free agent in the game; but its easy to get locked out like the NBA was!

Errors were corrected..the game perfected....now knowing what the deal is..now O-Dizzle rocked out....he's creating a buzz! 

Terrorists infected the system; whose caught up in it? why are they hating on cuz? I was just putting work in...trying to hunt and gather! 

Whose fair with this love or war platform? whose quick to knock the hustle? quick to pull a stunt...putting missiles on rooftops like in London? how was I responding?  I had this math for ya! 

This science is not that normal programming that your usually spoon fed!

 Minds were taken on a trip like Boy George mentioned..assisted by Teddy Riley; whose waiting in the dark with others who are being misled? 

Lines of folk were shaken!!! there's no rest for the weary!! they're tripping like Dr Timothy Leary with the LSD. 

The caste of thousands mushrooms....you heard me? as I let you know what the deal will be!

Silly of me..to think that I....could find justice and peace..dealing with these earthlings...

There's no rest for the weary...its like gun battles with FARC..or even gun battles in the neighborhood park..check out how these jokers work things....

Trying To Get Back In Sync…So Lets Get It Popping!! « Whats Really Going On?


I was in chill mode for a minute or two; but I wasn’t hiding out like Peter Keller ….what it do?  now I’m trying to get back in sync!

Had a little bit of a temper like Mel Gibson?  deal with it I was told!!  get over it!! word from Dr Phil; I was told to get an energy drink!

How you living?  they ask me…I told them the drama is like Kandahar’s …but I’m trying to heal the scars…they said it can be over with in a blink;  I was  told not to be sucker slow!

…..Plus a brotha was underestimated!!  played like..what can a dude from Newburg / Louisville Kentucky know?

Please!! my folk have been hated..that’s why my kind can’t just go with the flow…we don’t play that!

I’ve seen safe havens and safe havens get raided;  like jackers hitting up the drug spot for cash and product;  where do you stay at?

Information Overload Pt. 2

Peeping game; doing the knowledge...trying to analyze the information! 

Whats the prognosis?  the assignment? I chose this!! some are surprised at the transformation! 

As I transcend and transform; its the act of the greatest courage!

Reality will send the stimulus..monitored due to CISPA?  but the information overload can discourage!

Actually some know what the deal is...slick like John Edwards? they had the gist of it....the street code is maintained; even though snitching seems to be in fashion! 

The saga struggle continues; check the economy..with so called titans were clashing! 

Fashion police are mad!!! colors are clashing plus the thought police are mad because we Remember The Titans like Denzil Washington! 

.....Plus feeling the wrath of the titans; from Syria, the Gaza Strip, ...from Sudan to Washington! 

Whats up son? whatcha dealing with? that's what they ask me...its rough like New York Knicks vs Miami Heat in the playoffs...I told them I'm analyzing the information! 

But there will be no overload!! even though the strands of information are coming in too fast; peep my transformation! 

Peep my mode of transportation; the mothership was rolling!!! but now its stranded down here on earth! 

Was it broke down like Fords because of broken spark plugs? man peeps down here are struggling!! the rich get richer and the poor get poorer; whose waiting on the rebirth? 

Whats it all worth?  printouts were studied with the data circled in red! 

Whats it all worth?  due to the information overload some are waiting in the dark; they were misled! 

.....By false prophets just out for profits; just gamblers out for a fast buck! 

.....Overloaded the masses with misinformation; then they dipped in a fast truck!

LTJ Bukem - Twilight Voyage

Chilling out...Cooling out......its a nice time to go on a Twilight Voyage per LTJ Bukem...check this out!!
 


I Wasn’t Trying To Hear It.. « Whats Really Going On?

 Whats really going on?  I peeped game…like checking for the internet doomsday..also  like the doctor taking the pulse of a patient!

Plus like the House passing the cyber security bill…these danger zone residents were moving in slow motion like the BCS;  I was told to be patient!

But flagrant fouls were committed when I tried to drive to the hoop;  like I was playing against Metta World Peace! 

Whats really going on?  some fake it!!  sounding like politicians…talking slick with silver tongues…who succumbs?  finding out there’s no justice and no peace! 

Please!!  game recognizes game…I wasnt trying to hear that mess they were talking!

Peeping game;  spotted dude pimping through Lenox Mall in Atlanta in the Stacy Adams kicks… just got out of the Cadillac Sedan Deville;  said he was a player but the ladies? he was just stalking!

check out the rest of this article at I Wasn’t Trying To Hear It.. « Whats Really Going On?

The Resistance

Power bar eaters and energy drinkers tried to flex; rolling like Kobe or Kevin Durant;  but they meet resistance! 

Last hour or minute heroics take place..like Deniece Williams...it took a miracle..but we kept showing persistence! 

Knowing the belligerence would wear thin...word from Biden to Romney...what will the response be?  lame duck administrations will try anything! 

...Knowing we could deal with this; thought and fashion police were just lame ducks trying to cause a ruckus; check the drama they bring! 

Flowing down the stream of consciousness...a combo of a fashionista and Sandinista! 

On the team I'm a combo guard; playing the one and two spot ...making it hot like a Monterrey fiesta! 

....On this dream like white on rice!!! living it!! the rest of it was just an illusion! 

We were told about the matrix;  "it ain't nothing nice" ...my peeps are caught up in it; the chaos and confusion! 

We found a portal to slide through..spectators ask me what it do?  please!! they're all up in it! 

......All up in my swag..my steelo; peep the funky type of soul brotha...they should see I'm in it to win it! 

Whose up in it...with the cloak and dagger style?  a dimwit was trying to throw salt in the game!

Cloaks of  invisibility are used when we roll up with the resistance; as we sonic assault the game!

Transcend and Transform (Concepts Revisited)

Winds of change are blowing;  some might quit like Newt Gingrich; so who will transcend and transform? 

Its the act of the greatest courage; but haters will try to discourage then try to apologize like Metta World Peace...or like that Marine who criticized Obama on Facebook..but its all leading to glitches in the matrix..now were caught out there in the storm! 

Whose face to face with a crook? like TSA screeners at LAX...security was lax...now the dorm or palace is under attack!! the arch nemesis is on the premises; no justice no peace is the catch phrase!

Warm hearts turn cold; not affected by global warming..plus politicians make empty promises; warning!!  peep the catch phrase! 

As I catch Taurus Sun Rays while I write this..meanwhile in the hood authorities dip in the Ford Taurus; the blue light is flashing! 

Whose for or against us? like Israel peeping Iran's nuclear program;  with titans we keep clashing! 

At the same time Transcending and Transforming; soon cashing out like its Las Vegas! 

Blending the funky beats; O-Dizzle is a funky kind of soul brotha;  plus O-Zone is brainstorming; we're lashing out at those that fake us!

Sending messages out in the songs; hopefully transforming the masses! 

Taking passages of the spiritual variety..intergalactic...out past Pluto and Mars... where will you spot me? at the moment conducting funk seminars and classes!

Still in the ATL ...up in Charlotte / Mecklenburg...plus Louisville / Newburg...ghetto passes haven't been revoked...


We refuse to fail...also worldwide...from London to Johannesburg..but with the system? we never merged...still hitting game winning shots..as we transcend and transform...we never choked..


Check out the Transcend and Transform Mix..

Clearance Rack Epiphanies / Information Overload.. « Whats Really Going On?


Whats the deal? please!! seasons change; now were into spring…stores get rid of winter merchandise!

Reasons change  like the Secret Service sex scandal..but we still drop these clearance rack epiphanies;  but we relocated …you probably heard it aint nothing nice

Banned from Blogster;  they tried to scandalize my name like Metta World Peace..please!! …they thought I was a mobster; even though I do show those tendencies!

But actually I’m a scientist dealing with the information overload;  that’s why I bring these clearance rack epiphanies!

As I deal with these and those episodes…there’s no justice or peace….like in Sudan / South Sudan…we’re  bumping heads with the thought and fashion police!

As I deal with these and those episodes..Louisville /  Newburg is embedded in my soul; so when I roll a brotha can’t be at ease! check out the rest of this article at  Clearance Rack Epiphanies / Information Overload.. « Whats Really Going On?

Random Thoughts From A Brotha: Rodney Lee Soul habitz

Information Overload

All up in the spot!! surrounded by computer printouts with red ink all over them! 

Editors and so called quality control inspectors were hot!! disputing the data that was collected...they were like the trustees of The Social Security Fund saying the money will run out in 2033...even these breakbeat scientists were disrespected; critics were all over them! 

Please!! were scientific like were working on the Hadron Collider;  we're freedom riders!! we didn't contribute to the confusion in this world...like drones operating in American cities..but reality will control the situation....check the cash flow; checks are issued on the regular! 

Actually....we will roll up with this Sonic Assault; we can't go with the flow!! products are marked rejected and irregular! 

Word from this hot messenger!! as we get with ya... check these clearance rack epiphanies; they're dropped before there's an information overload! 

Some heard its another hot mess for ya; like the police chief in Sanford resigning but the city refusing to accept it..I face interference; like informants snitching on a drug overlord!

Bodies found in a ditch will bring Eyewitness News reporters; the information will be provided on the news at six! 

Glitches in the matrix will have some caught up...strands of information were also coming in too fast...now some are asking me what the deal is? I told them dues have been paid!! check the knowledge I kick!

I told them to check the mileage I get on the mothership...that's  until it broke down!

 ....Information overload affected the onboard computer!! sensors malfunctioned; damn!!  down here on earth is where it broke down!

The inside joke was put down by wannabe power brokers and overlords..rolling like Mitt Romney...but their functions were chaotic! 

They just contribute to the confusion in the world;  who'll get gaffled like Harden by Metta World Peace? in this world there's no justice or peace....meanwhile we drop this good word and the funk son!! check how we rock it!

CHECK OUT THE INFORMATION OVERLOAD MIX

Feeling The Vibe PT.2

I was feeling the vibe....its like some were on the feeding tube; acting subdued...other jokers were trying to play me close! 

Whose fronting on the tribe like Ted Nugent? thought and fashion police were prominent; fronting, flexing, .....representing the devil; you know he will oppose! 

Sonic Assaults are unleashed....were trying to take it to another level...pitching perfect games like Phil Humber of the Chicago White Sox...but clashing with titans; were feeling their wrath; one call that's all to Ken Nugent needed? as we compose these math and science theories! 

Hell is caught like Natalie Cole mentioned...please!!! its like a battle between Jon Jones and Rashad Evans in UFC 145...its all the way live!!  but that's how it is in these hostile territories!

But O-Dizzle is Transmitting Live....who tried to holla at me? how did they roll? they admitted they were trying to get in my business! 

Haters tried to throw a dollar at me like Wal-Mart in Mexico!! but I already know what the deal is! 

You'll be strung out!! check it out...you'll be caught up in the system or matrix! 

You'll be hung out to dry or thrown under the bus by jokers that fake it!

We were caught up too...but we got wise to the set up...we made a break for it..moving at a high velocity but we had the speed you need....

We moved mysteriously..like that lost Envisat Satellite out in space...feeling the vibe....kept those fake ones out of my face...true indeed...


Whats the deally? this is not like the Boston Red Sox...there's no psychological situation...we just keep it moving...


Whats the deally? we won't stop...feeling the vibes...we ignore them...sonic troops? we deploy them...O-Dizzle will keep grooving...

Making Adjustments « Whats Really Going On?

Trying to get in where I fit in; but I see adjustments need to be made!

Where’s the crescent or monkey wrench? or even the screwdriver making moves like McGiver….like the case against George Zimmerman…adjustments need to be made!

The crescent moon was just as bad as the full one; games were played by these fools!

Clandestine affairs soon take place like Secret Service agents swerving….. participants were from the old and new school!

Were Still Asking....Whats The Prognosis?

Were all up in the spot running tests on the patient like a doctor! 

Whats the prognosis? might have to administer doses; Dr. O-Dizzle is a Funky Type Of Soul Brotha....he's the chief rocker!

 O-Zone is deep like Davy Jones Locker...or out there in deep space like the Lyrid Meteor Shower...putting it down until the last hour....just got back from Mars / Venus...he chose this assignment like Bobby Brown; its his prerogative!

But danger zone residents chose their poison; some jokers even used a feeding tube... lethal doses were taken; but tests show a false positive!

Clones believed the false prophet; especially after the grape kool aid was drunk! 

Like Pakistan drones destroyed the legacy.....but these brothas escape; cool with it!!!! now dropping this brand new funk! 
 
Whats up man? I'm delayed in Atlanta traffic behind the Subaru Legacy with Bush / Cheney stickers on it! 

Whats up man? an Atlanta fanatic aka urban legend dipped in the 90's model Acura Legend from back in the day; now its broke down on I-285 with stickers on it!

ATLiens talk about how Mike Vick was on it when he was here; they still wear the red number seven! 

Now he's putting it down in Philly....whats the deally? they ask me how I'm living? 

Whats the deally? whats the prognosis? told them I'm dealing with it...but I had to analyze the information! 

Whats the deally? I chose this assignment.....dropping breakbeat science; check the transformation!

You'll Get Played

The database was hacked!! information was manipulated before I could get to it!

 Rat race dog eat dog participants didn't take Mr Cole's advice!! now Windows are populated; database administrators act like they knew it! 

We're all up in the spot!! its crazy..even the Jet Blue pilot will plead insanity...the spot is populated by winners and losers as others go through it; Souls On Ice like Eldridge Cleaver mentioned!

 Brothas gonna work it out like Willie Hutch!! but it ain't nothing nice like Ward and June Cleaver; rights and privileges are soon suspended!

The wannabe executive wore the suit with suspenders; plus he rocked the bow tie! 

Whats the deally?  consecutive negative episodes rocked his world ......some were based on a lie! 

He tried a little tenderness like Otis Redding but he got played! 

Somebody lied!!!! now during the drive by history is repeating; he got sprayed!

Progress was delayed...impeded..now jokers are drunk or weeded ....looking for prostitutes like Secret Service Agents...

You'll get played!! who loves you baby? word from Kojak!! even the coach will shove you like Paul Silas did Tyrus Thomas...now its no secret to how flagrant the game is..  


You'll get played!! its all game is the catch phrase...even Republicans have their reservations concerning Mitt Romney...

You'll get played..days will be rough like over in Sudan...whats up man? what will the response be?

The Ongoing Chaos and Confusion « Whats Really Going On?


Trying to keep a low profile; but still caught up in the chaos and confusion!

I expected it ……oh yeah!! please!!  that’s  what it do when your caught up in the system / matrix….dealing with the institution!

In this good word the solution is debated; we didn’t worry about trivial pursuits!

But were still putting it down like Derek Jeter…not wasting our time like lawyers filing frivolous law suits

Terrific / Terrible Tuesday / So I Started Another One

Whats the deal? like Anders Behring Breivik ....these folk are trying to start something.....so in response I started another one! 

....On this Terrific / Terrible Tuesday....what will the news be? please!! life is hectic....it gets way too real!! like 21% of New Yorkers being poor;  some are fascinated when they see another come undone! 

Please!! check the score...it's like the Wizards beating the Bulls.. the knockout punch will stun others; so now moves are tentative!

Please!! witches and wizards mesmerize fools...meanwhile O-Dizzle will rock out!! he's a funky type of soul brotha....while O-Zone will let you know the deal with it! 

Snitches work their wizardry....was Sarkozy trying to sell Qaddafi a nuclear reactor? word from an actress or actor...as plans fizzle;  it all goes up in smoke after the bomb is dropped! 

Offensive fouls were called when I drove to the hoop; but the defender flopped! 

Plus the defender hacked me like Metta World Peace...but this sonic defender dropped knowledge; minds I was trying to spark! 

Time caught up with some...in this world?  no justice or peace...they found that out while they were waiting in the dark! 

Crimes were perpetrated...like Secret Service sex scandals..what was done in the dark was revealed in the light!

.....those that hated ended up coming undone; I knew they weren't right! 

Cosmic Karma straightened everything out; like this and like that! 

We cosmic slopped; breakbeat science is dropped...its like this and like that!

The Hardship

Conditions are harsh.... check out the emergency....will we sink like the Titanic? this is a hardship!

Petitions start with Lord Help! Lord Help!! after the vehicle wrecks out who will work with me?  or will they come with the hot mess...and continue to start it? 

Were in the heart of it; the danger zone....its like Syria...were all up in the spot! 

Going through the hardship; ..on the frontline of the war between the have and have nots!

All up in the spot....how did they try to play us?  like its nothing...they thought we fell back!

Check the weather forecast..what it do? act like you knew!! as tornadoes blast Oklahoma...whatcha know bruh?  its about to get hot!!! the Sonic Assault will repel a haters attack!

Jokers say whatever!! breaking out of prisons like in Pakistan;
sentences were imposed or self imposed...others get blasted on or jacked out there in the gray area! 

Issues get prayed and fasted on after some face the mass hysteria! 

Drama lovers truth or dare ya like the Taliban in Afghanistan!! now your facing the hardship!

Whats up man? this brotha will govern himself accordingly; I already knew what it do...all up in the heart of it!

Whats up man? why did they start it? they tried to shut us down like Megaupload..... 

Whats up man? whose facing the hardship? but knowing the Lord is controlling things from Alpha to Omega....so we stay in a "prayed up" mode....

The Funky Type Of Soul Brotha Mix

 O-Dog aka O-Dizzle is that "funky type of soul brotha" ....you don't know? check this mix out!!


The Funky Type Of Soul Brotha Mix

To The Left and To The Right!

What's the deal? Its like the cha cha slide; to the left...to the left!! to the right..to the right!

 Rah! Rah! Rah! types hide their emotions; but I already knew "they ain't right"

 I knew "they ain't gonna fight" ...word from this frontline spiritual warfare!! they're not going in like Cory Booker....this frontline dweller never saw them out here! 

Plus I knew how a crook would do!! the left hand didn't know what the right one was doing; umpires called the third strike!!! told them your outta here!!!

Empires strike back like in Sudan / South Sudan...whats up man? now some are caught out there; caught up in the system / matrix! 

The shot clock expires...but some like that!! others keep faking it until they make it!

O-Dizzle will rock a beat...he's breaking it; plus that's what O-Zone does with this good word!

Whats the dizzle? dude from Mexico played it like Jeffrey Osborne...to the left and right packages were shrink wrapped; he had that good herb!
 

The reign began with a drizzle...but I knew from the get go that Sinaloa cartel members weren't happy...now gunshots clapped in Syria; or even over in North Carolina...meanwhile at the roller rink over in Decatur hands clapped; skaters dipped from the left to the right! 

Plus over in MLK in Atlanta the high roller was slapped upside the head with the toolie;.....these jackers or fakers ain't right! 

This ain't insight I'm dropping?  please!!! dude said "sho you right" ....sounding like Barry White!

 Please there's no where to run or hide; trouble is to the left and the right!

Winds Of Change Were Blowing « Whats Really Going On?


The winds of change are blowing as I write this…its around the same time as the New Moon in Aries!

Cameo mentioned Shes Strange and they liked it!!  but in love or war whose fair with these?

Its not just these Babylonians…the Philistines and Pharisses plot and scheme..now some are waiting for answers! 

Was George Zimmerman near? ….feeling the negative energy on these scenes…whats was heard or seen? spotted the devil waiting on dancers!

Whose benevolent?  next thing you know..were caught out in it… soon finding what the deal will be from Cancers, Aries, or even Virgos!

Whats the deal?  some are knocked off balance during the Age of Aquarius ….bearing witness to what vertigo is!

.....check out the rest at  Winds Of Change Were Blowing « Whats Really Going On?

I Started Another One / They Just Keep Coming...

I started another one while I had a moment; they keep coming!! I'm putting it down like this! 

They wanted to see a brotha come undone; done for the season like LaMarcus Aldridge...but I had this good word and funky is how the sound will be! the funky drummer is drumming... as we put it down like this..

Where you have you found me? chilling out..please!! its easy to get roughed up like Tim Lincecum.. so I'm laying in the cut waiting on the smoke to clear!

 Whose around me?  please!! I'm not playing around with the corrupt like Vladimir Putin...I don't want those jokers near! 

Whats the weather like? Al Roker said the storm is near; the truth? we're not disputing...actually some of us are already going through it! 

A foul joker made us think we had something; some acted like they knew it!

.....As we go through it; we found out its like this and its like that! 

That gave us a reason to start another one!!! its ammunition to fight that!

Dipped for a minute..but we came right back....we didn't stay out in the cabin in the woods... 

Who slipped for a minute? they got shot or got a knife in the back..please!! they're shooting and stabbing in these hoods...

Who slipped for a minute? they were warned and forewarned...told not to trust that B in Apartment 23...  


Who flipped this science to show you were in it to win it?...we started another one to let you know the deally....

They Were So Predictable

Peeping game; doing the knowledge...some of these folk are so predictable! 

That could be or good or bad thing...like Charles Manson a dangerous man? check the knowledge I kick to you! 

...Soon facing charges like George Zimmerman...whats up man? meanwhile we were out there ...dipping...it might sound sick to you; but the mothership gets good mileage! 

Rolling out beyond Pluto, Mars and Saturn; now back down to earth...knowing how foul it'll get! 

The Dramatics said what you see is what you get; but I don't like what I'm looking at! 

Next level dramatics occur...like Bobby Petrino...whose caught out there? chefs were in hells kitchen with the recipe for disaster; all up in the spot is where they're cooking at! 

Central booking; that's where so called authority figures try to flex muscles! 

They're so predictable!! but down the stream of consciousness is where a brotha will flow with these next hustles! 

But the simple is made complex;  hustles get knocked...the system is so predictable!

 ....Every now and then they try to throw us for a loop; check the knowledge I kick to you!

Wishing it was simple..but of course its not....but its predictable..so we dip like Alec Baldwin leaving 30 Rock... 

But we bring it back...as we pimp through the spot..launching the Sonic Assault....just like North Korea launching rockets  check it out...you heard me? O-Dizzle will rock...

Fronting / Swagging; But Soon Subject To The Authority

They were running the race....fronting / swagging...but just like Rick Santorum they'll have to drop out...

Others were running up in my face..cloak and daggering..slick with it...points? they think they're scoring...check the attitude....but like Bobby Petrino they'll get fired...meanwhile we stay inspired..check the O-Dog Podcast; we're putting jazz, funk and hip hop out..
 
Meanwhile dude was flamboyant; acting like he was up on it!! cruising down Glenwood Rd in Decatur, Georgia...up in the Lincoln Navigator!

But soon subject to the authority...but check me out; this dude is clairvoyant...I'm peeping game; please!! I've been hood!! representing Louisville / Newburg; hip to the charades perpetrated by a hater!

Whose caught up in the system?...soon like George Zimmerman's attorneys quitting...your without representation..whatcha facing? an irrelevant issue debater will have us all subject to the authority! 

Whose caught up in the system?  suspended like Ozzie Guillen; were residents of the danger zone subjects of the drama royalty?

Drama kings and queens annoy me!! like Mark Cuban confronting Lamar Odom...whatcha know man?  I don't let it get the best of me! 

...Troops I deploy to the frontlines to fight this spiritual warfare!! the lab is like a Space X launching pad..but I'm realizing there's no justice or peace there's no rest for me! 

...Asking the Lord...is this a test for me?  as I deal with the madness! 

...Spotted wannabe power brokers with their game face on..as they come back with this! 

Coming back with this that and the other!! its always going to be something! 

The funky drummer is drumming!! plus we have this good word; rebuking those that "wannabe starting something"
