I decided that I am going to rap again and no less than a week later my buddy invites me along with my boys to come perform at his engagement party. I replied “My time has not come for me to perform yet.” After I told him that I realized didn’t Jesus say that to his Mom but anyway I digress. Yesterday I was talking to Floss about some plans and he asked why not start back now what’s so significant about late January? Here’s my answer- I’m still creating the vision. I’m manifesting it, everyday it gets more clear. Even though I haven’t even written a single verse I’m hard at work on my album. That’s what’s different this time around. I know how to manifest thoughts and ideas into particle form now. Literally and not from chance or coincidence. So for me right now I’m on tour, promoting a classic album, enjoying life with my friends, in LA, NY, overseas, I’m having the time of my life. See you don’t start where you are, you start where you want to be. Everything action that takes place actually happens twice. First in a quantum dimension next in physical form. So for me right now I’m slowly traveling back from there to where I am now and once I make it back I am going to retrace my steps………thats really all there is to it. Go where u want to, return back to where you are and retrace your steps. Now pass collection plate around and pay me for this good word. Just kidding….unless you want to
After my recent Facebook post about my shift in view I spent the day defending my point, disputing myths and engaging in some good and some foolywayne back and forths. I thought about it a few days later and I couldn’t help but ask myself. Who am I fighting for? For what? What do I get out of this? I already know the truth, it’s not even worth debating. It took a lot of study, personal development and self awareness to get here. These type of things don’t accept short cuts and people will have to find their own truths. Funny thing about the whole debate is I spoke to people from Grammy Award winners to artists with no momentum or anything going for them and literally all the high achievers agreed and with each step down the success ladder came more combativeness. Throw in the whole maybe they’re just not feeling you side talk and I’m like Wow these guys are real funny, so I say I don’t disagree with some DJs because they don’t like my music….umm ok. C’mon dude your smarter than that. Whatever pseudo role as a Houston hip hop cultural critic I created I now release. Y’all figure it out. It’s all Houston’s fault. SMH
Before leaving my house every morning I perform the Ray Lewis Chicken Dance. From a quantum physics level I am convinced the dance unlocks some type of positive energy that impacts my surrondings. First the glides shift the divine matrix surrounding me and the friction with the ground begins channeling force. Next the twirling of my arms forms a magnetic chi ball, similar to Ken and Ryu’s haauket. Lastly, the stomp on the ground while releasing my arms is like an atomic explosion that fills my immediate force field with energy. Now I’m ready to start my day.
I keep hearing older successful people mention that your second run is when you really reap the rewards. When you combine the ambition of youth with the wisdom of age is when you really become a beast. Almost like Jordan’s second 3 peat when he started to win games mentally. I’m going to drop an album in 2014. Right now the tentative title is Why Should White Guys Have All The Fun. I’m looking forward to the experience this time around because I think I have a solid understanding of success now. I don’t have to chase anymore I’ve now learned how to attract. I’m not in a rush anymore and most importantly I’m not broke and über dependent on an album to change my life. I’m in a real good place mentally and I’m winning. I’m winning in so many areas of my life and almost as a final frontier as a challenge, the ultimate challenge…..Can I win and bring home the prize I’ve coveted the most, the one that has been in arms reach, the one I let get away. Of course I can, actually I already have I just have to wait on you guys to catch up and see. But it’s already done. Over the next 13 months I’m going to reimagine what it means to be an Indy artist, introduce new technologies to hip hop and establish myself as one of the most innovative artist in music. Move over Yeezy I’m the new Steve Jobs. Stay tuned. -quantum Rob

I’m learning how to learn. I never understood that there was an art to acquiring knowledge. I remember a friend of mine was studying for his PHD, he once told me one of the biggest challenges is to remain user friendly. What good is it to possess a wisdom and/or insight that no one understands? Learning can have a profound effect on a person emotionally. Some people learn about slavery and become angry, others learn about a particular religion and become obsessive. Often times this emotion can work to undermine to knowledge that a person receives. For example, the new found Christian may go on a crusade to tell everyone he knows about Jesus and how they should seek redemption. In doing this he is so obsessive and interrogational with his promotion that he begins to turn people off. In the end he gets the opposite result of his goal. I’ve been a victim of this. In my learning about the power of the mind, quantum physics and subconscious programming I grew impatient with anyone who complained or spoke of something as if they were victims. I know that a person creates their own reality. I know that through thought, emotions and feeling we can manifest whatever we desire. There is a principle based system in place that allows us to choose our reality through thought, focus and intent. However, the overwhelming effect of my learning made me rigid, judgmental and insensitive. I lacked the one key that holds us all together. The power that allows this Universe to function: Compassion. In all study and knowledge we must remain compassionate to others. We can’t become black belts that go around picking fights. Without compassion the knowledge can be rendered useless.
I hate to say this because this guy is my hero. His music has inspired growth in my life. When GOOD Music called me I started shaking, I couldn’t even hold the phone……But I speak truth and only that. I’m calling bullshit on Kanye not having the platform to make these world changes he speaks of. You have 80 million dollars, your arguably the biggest star on the planet and you need Nike to express yourself??? You need Fendi and Europeans to believe in you for you to express yourself through Fashion. BULLSH*T. And if you really want to change the world stop running to the establishment and asking them for help. And open the door for these young people, not these stars, not Fendi, not some Parishian designers…..If you really trying to create change decentralize the movement and stop looking for credit and appreciation. Real leaders move from behind the scenes. That’s the problem with Al Sharpton and them, they always want to be in front, all in the video, all in the interviews, it becomes more about them then the idea. If DONDA is about the people go to these Art Institutes, go to SCAD, go to Prairie View School of Architecture, Go To Harvard, Go To FAMU, Howard, Colleges, highschools even middle schools and get them involved. DONDA doesn’t have a phone number, an application process or any way to be reached besides a bum ass email account that no one replies to. Real world changers start with the people on the lowest levels not the highest. Jesus started with twelve guys, that’s it. Budda started with a tree. But you need the world to celebrate you. The old Kanye would hate the new Kanye. I love Kanye and I’m forever indebted but I see the truth now…….YOUR NOT ONE OF US
POSITIVE ATTITUDE HACK- Here’s an easy way to avoid getting baited into joining someone in complaining, gossiping or whining. Once they start complaining let them continue with their gripe uninterrupted, let them get it all out without you saying a word. After their complaint reply with “it’s gonna get better” Once they hear this they will realize they don’t have a complaint partner and they will either change the subject or be quiet…….this is one of favorite hacks
I spoke to a friend of mine who has an upcoming job interview for a position that he is qualified for but is concerned about an arrest on his record. Here’s a strategy for explaining an arrest to a potential employer. Now I’m assuming a person will have an arrest for either a DWI, Assault, Drugs, Weapons or Fraud charge that they are trying to get around. If you are a Sex Offender, tough luck, I’ve got nothing for you. Anyways, here are the steps.
IF POSSIBLE ATTACH THE ARREST TO YOUR COLLEGE DAYS
For the most part everyone did something stupid in college. What you want to establish is that you are not some goon from the streets. You can soften it up by associating it with being a stupid freshman. Even if you didn’t attend college you can still say you were in school for a brief moment, no one is going to do research on whether you actually attended college for a semester. If college doesn’t work, look for a holiday that it was near. Were you arrested on Halloween, close to New Years or was it during Spring Break? This is another technique that associates your offense with a time period where people can understand a possible lapse in judgement.
ASSOCIATE YOUR ENVIRONMENT WITH THE CAUSE OF YOUR ACTIONS
You don’t want to blame anyone for your arrest but you do want to add elements that show you just made a bad mistake in that circumstance. Once again this can soften and portray you as someone in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Admit that it was a terrible mistake that you regret and learned from. Make it a life changing experience that scarred you straight. Talk about it as a costly lesson that you needed to learn. And if you know a background check is coming be proactive and let them know in advance. They need to find out about your arrest from you not LexisNexis or who ever they use to run background checks.
- You have a possession of marijuana charge – I was in college at the time and my dorm room was pretty much the hangout spot for my whole floor. At the time I used to throw “Madden Tournaments” and a lot of students would come by. It wasn’t a regular thing but occasionally some of the guys would bring marijuana with them smoke and hang out. I should have not allowed it but it was so common among students that I was somewhat used to seeing students using it. One day while some friends were over The Police knocked on the door and we all winded up getting arrested for possession”
- You have an assault charge - Back in college we used to have this “Fight Night” where all the students would meet up and guys would put on gloves and box. It was really more of an amateur boxing night. I was at fight night and I was boxing a class mate. I guess during our exchange I landed a bunch and it fractured his nose, we called the ambulance and I told them what happened and I winded up being arrested for assault since it wasn’t considered self defense and was treated like a fight on campus
Jason Collins- A pro basketball player who averaged 1.2 points per game in his last season and yet to sign to a team says he’s gay and is featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated and celebrated as the first openly gay active N.B.A. player even though he only played 6 games last year.
John Amaechi – A career journeyman who played 4 complete seasons in the NBA and averaged 10 points a game is now one the highest profile post retirement athlete’s on the planet. After his career was over he came out shortly after releasing his memoir. And had almost endless promotion of his book. Not because of the story of his life, his challenges, no just because he openly came out.
- That’s not courageous, that’s big business. I wouldn’t be surprised if straight guys start lying and saying their gay just for the buzz in generates. We’re talking about press, media, endorsements.
We did this one in California it works real well if executed correctly. Buy two 10lb bags of chicken and a small variety of side items. Altogether this should cost somewhere around $20. Start texting friends, co workers let them know your having a get together next week. Don’t promote it like a party because you don’t want too many people to come. 25 to 30 is the sweet spot. Also Thursday is usually a good day of the week. Start confirming with people who are coming that day. This is key you want to have everyone acknowledge they’re coming. As they confirm text them back “Cool we’ll be here waiting on you, I just fired up the grill. Bring a bottle!” It’s important that you say it casually. Not like your asking. If 30 people show up most likely 17 will bring a bottle. Most of the people there will be casual drinkers. A few wont drink at all and a couple will come to get wasted. Don’t leave all bottles out visible. Only have 2 or 3 out at a time. As they are finished the pull out another. People drink more when they think more is available. End the groove around midnight and you should have anywhere from 7-10 bottles for your home
