"You know it doesn't make much sense
There ought to be a law against
Anyone who takes offense
At a day in your celebration
'Cause we all know in our minds
That there ought to be a time
That we can set aside
To show just how much we love you
And I'm sure you will agree
It couldn't fit more perfectly
Than to have a world party on the day you came to be"
"Happy Birthday", Stevie Wonder

My Girl

Kanye West - Heard 'Em Say ft. Adam Levine

"And nothing lasts forever but be honest babe, it hurts but it may be the only way"

easy listening (13): SUPA SISTA

"Supa Sista" (faixa do álbum homónimo), da poetisa e música Ursula Rucker.

"Long term, prime exponent of the New York Slam poetry scene, Ursula Rucker has spent the last seven years working with some of the finest downtempo outfits including Silent Poets and The Roots. Whilst her talents have embellished their work from 1994 onwards, it is former musical partners 4Hero, Alexkid and King Britt who have returned the gesture and collaborated with her on this beautiful fusion of hip hop, nu-jazz and soul.

Inspired by the social commentary of black female writers Zora Neale Hurston and Sonia Sanchez, Ursula Rucker has made it her mission to elevate the mind of hip hop and purify the art form. Like her previous work Supa Sista fixes Ursula's attentions firmly on the issues of sexuality, technology, women's rights, politics, education, evolution and spirituality.


Charged with 'she-lectricity', hers is a silken delivery that, like Michael Franti's, demonstrates that a quiet word in the ear can speak volumes above the microphone rant. Ursula is one that would like to see hip hop become more responsible and more original. This is a woman who is both a poet and performer with important things to say and with her smoky, seductive lyricism it is all too easy to listen and absorb".

a "mensagem": entre a forma e a substância

Quando hoje se usa e abusa do significado da "mensagem" que a Música deve sempre preservar e transmitir - e esta preocupação no Hip-Hop, de tão explorada, fez com que qualquer um se arrogasse do supremo dom de "transmitir uma mensagem", repetindo acriticamente chavões e frases feitas -, é sempre uma boa notícia quando ouvimos alguém que de facto tem uma certa visão do mundo e a verte talentosamente em palavras. Sem complexos, sem clichês, sem lugares-comuns. Inteligente, visionário e com substância: assim é o canadiano Shad, cujo álbum The Old Prince (2007) (onde se encontra a faixa abaixo) constitui um dos melhores registos de hip-hop desta primeira década do milénio. Espantoso.

"So what the new black activists do
For our freedom is just being them
Do what youre passionate to
Not confined by a sense that you have to disprove
Any stereotypes, so-called facts to refute
Or match any image of blackness
They've established as true
Perhaps we'll break thru the glass ceilings"

A letra, na íntegra, aqui.
