This is first time I mek blog. First time I put my photo to show people. I hope you like. I meet with Ayleen and she say she want me to meet some friends. She take me here. She say her brother Elijah, used to come here many times. Oh I meet some very interesting character here. And they give me brandy. It is like a place to come and find all the local gossip. You know, is very interesting to me. I don’ know many people from the Carribie , but they remind me of home. Many many stories, much laughing, some bad things happen when they try to come to England with the immigration. But Nice people…yes… very nice…

Don’t sound right saying vagina like that?! by AyleeN Venetia Benoit

Posted in AYLEEN'S BLOGS, WHAT IS SECURITY?, YOUNG WOMENS ISSUES with tags , , , , , , , , , on 10/05/2009 by Zena

Yeh this is Ayleen yeah and i wanted to say something about this video that Zena told me to watch about what security is yeh. i like it an all that but i was a bit shocked yeh when the woman who’s talkin started the whole video talkin about vaginas!! I’m like WHA’!!! But then i find out Eve Ensler, the woman in the video yeh, she wrote this one woman show like Zena’s called The Vagina Monologues. i like, alright, easy….Wait a minute…? oh yeeeeh Zena did say that it helped to inspire her to make own her show so….
Apparently its a whole show of older women talking about their how they feel about their..(I’m not allowed to swear, is it?)  about their vaginas, What for, I don”t know but this video is about security. Not the show, but what makes us feel safe in this world, in your community and just within your life I guess. .(IfI had of used another condom for extra “security” then maybe  I might not have to worry about another child brought up in this crazy peak  time. DON”T JUDGE ME I’m still trying to do the right fing.  The v  sounds quite interestin still…. so yeah I’m gonna watch it yeah and then get back to you.
Anyway check it out and tell me what you fink. MC KrudeReality out!

On a clean page I can rage like fire
When I can’t cuss or cry my pen blaze wid desire
Time feminine faction 2 touch a likkle mic da
manz dem ‘fraid as I flex wid might
tight lyrical content an a rhyme flow
cos its not da cleavage or how da batty show oh
ain’t no testosterone inflatin my ego
Mc Krude Reality gwaan show u how it go
I study rhyme like lyrical chess
About da battle wiv reality ‘n’ how I make it manifest
bless if my days been good more time I’m vex cos of my neighbourhood
so I’m a spit fire / word power explosive lyrical matter
splatter wack emcees demma scatter
dere flow maga when mine gets phatter
been surviving in this gutter I cough and splutter from
da filth needles piss and pipes
bust rubbish bags and smashed street lights
My endz drive me round the bend
cos too many man wanna send you to your grave early
murk a man dem switch dem get gully
chattin blagga blah rare on sum gangsta fake reality tip
another buckie bullet split sum ribs by sum blud that flipped
but no one snitched who did it
I see a next yout dead! erased from the stage of life
how soon before they prematurely out my light
it’s chilling/da killing is spilling blood in waterfalls of pain
God willing rebuilding da feeling of love will release da blame
forget hate and shame / release the pain in my brothers name
krude reality is the same for male and female
poverty sex drugs it’s da classic ghetto tale
But da feminine perspective is just the coin flipped
so pass the mic and cease da noise bout your car and your little d*%k Mc KrudeReality, cute on the outside
But da lyrics she spit mek yu freeze in yu dutty creps and fake Kleins
