To My Constituents and My ConstituAin'ts, By Wise Intelligent
"So hardcore yet so harmless as a dove
This armor is for the slugs
Peace offering for the love
This coffin is for the grudge
The beef between the elders and the youngins, the husband and his woman
The beef between the MP3ís and SP 1200ís
The beef between the beat machines and live drummers drummin"

"Before I jump right into this thought, I want to say that I sincerely appreciate all the feedback, shares, retweets, and love that I'm getting for the SAMPLER of the 3rd Period in my "Back to School" Box Set. Wise Intelligent Iz...EL Negro Guerrero (The Black Warrior) is artistically an advanced placement class for lyricism and a call for Direct Social Activism! Now with that being said, let's build..."
I'M NOT MARRIED TO A CERTAIN SOUND, I'M MARRIED TO MY MESSAGE. My message from day one is the same message that Hip Hop Culture had from its day one. I'm here to help motivate the youth in my community to move away from self-destructive behavior and move towards positive attitudes and lifestyles. This is why I exist in this form and do what I do and say what I say. IF YOU CLAIM to be a fan of Wise Intelligent/Poor Righteous Teachers but DO NOT UNDERSTAND the reason for which I even rap - YOU ARE NOT A FAN of Wise Intelligent/PRT- you are someone who likes a particular brand of Hip Hop and not what I do in particular. I DO NOT MAKE HIP HOP for any of the religious choirs in Hip Hop culture. That would make me YOUR FAN. I make Hip Hop based on where MY PEOPLE are at any particular time in their STRUGGLE for definition and survival in an overtly and covertly ANTI-BLACK WORLD.
WISE INTELLIGENT EL NEGRO GUERRERO NEW ALBUM SAMPLER pt. 1 of 3
That said, considering the STATE OF URBAN BLACK AMERICA, it would be COUNTER-PRT to produce an entire album of music that ONLY satisfies the acquired tastes of a NOW 35-40 YEAR OLD demographic who are settled down, have children, and have SUCCESSFULLY avoided "The Trap" - the lessons for you were a success. However, the demographic MORE IN NEED of a Wise Intelligent and or Poor Righteous Teachers TODAY, are those youth who DON'T STUDY LESSONS and are IN THE TRAP KILLING and DYING! I speak their language also.
WISE INTELLIGENT EL NEGRO GUERRERO NEW ALBUM SAMPLER pt. 2 of 3
We always say we're "GOIN IN" but where are we going? I'm going into the world of "The Trap", self-hatred, consumer-oriented materialism, the effeminization of black males, the degradation of black women, inadequate public schooling, joblessness, anti-black policies, youth violence, racism, nihilism, apathy, and white-supremacy. I'm concerned about how these issues affect black youth and how best to overcome them. If I have to do that on a beat PRODUCED BY SOULJA BOY, so be it! I am a teacher who just happens to know how to rap, not a rapper who happened upon something to teach!
WISE INTELLIGENT EL NEGRO GUERRERO NEW ALBUM SAMPLER pt. 3 of 3
My skill level and commitment to Hip Hop culture is proven and unquestionable - and I respect the opinions of others - but if you believe that I am supposed to ONLY do over and over what I did from 1990 - 1996 to gain your approval of my methods (more accurately - my pedagogy), you my friend GOT IT FUCKED UP!
Once again I would like to shout out the hundreds of new followers of Wise Intelligent on FACEBOOK and TWITTER who think/thought I'm some BRAND NEW NIGGA making HOT MUSIC, as well as those from 20 years ago who understand the bigger picture/mission and really get it! Now take a deep breath, calm down, return to your seat and let THE TEACHING CONTINUE....
