It's Been A Long Time...


....I shouldn't have left you / without a dope...well, you know how it goes. It's been ages since I've laid any heavy thoughts and theories down on this blog site and, in the paraphrased words of my favorite emcee Nas, "I had time off / was bored with this / I could've written a dissertation / just by close-reading different parts of (Toni) Morrison." Still, Guess Who's Bizack to the blogosphere with a new found fire for entering the public discourse. So much has happened in the interim: my first trip abroad (and to China of all places, check out the blog in the future for more to come about the trip), preparing for my dissertation exams, singing in my friend's wedding, expanding my culinary training, and just trying to survive the rat trap that is graduate school.

      Still many apologies for the long delays. With the revamped blog page and renewed interest, I promise to be bringing you dope words to spark the thoughts of your hip hop literacy, or ill-literacy as it were. I'll keep this post relatively short, and add that folks should stay on the look-out for more regular entries as of August 15th 2011. I hope to be entering a weekly column with more of my musings on the intersections between black literature/scholarship and hip hop culture. Please keep your comments coming and enjoy this little diddy:



Could it be I stayed away too long? / Did I leave your mind when I was gone? / It's not my thing trying to get back / But this time let me tell you where I'm at / You don't have to worry cause I'm coming /Back to where I should have always stayed...I wanna be where you are, oh oh / Anywhere you are, oh oh / I wanna be where you are, oh oh / Everywhere you are, oh oh...Please, don't close the door to our future / There's so many things we haven't tried / I could love you better than I used to / And give you all the love I have inside...
