Tune in to HBO’s hot new series featuring @TheRock on “Ballers” tonight. Added bonus “Ballers” features my old school Electro HipHop classic “Al-Naafiysh (The Soul)” by Hashim or as most DJs named it “Its Time”. I’m not sure at what point of the show. So I’ll be watching too. The Official Hashim > www.theofficialhashim.com

It’s Simple: #BoycottBlackFriday Spending| @CALLISTE

#itsbiggerthanyou @Errolcnn @DonLemon @BrookeBCNN @Sara__Firth @howardkoplowitz #barackobama #ferguson #politics #law #justfeelit

 

BND-inverseAccording to @CALLISTE 2014, “In the wake of the continued killing of unarmed youths in America I encourage all my associates, friends and family to #BoycottBlackFriday Thanksgiving holiday spending. We can do it. Plus it sends a very strong message to the establishment. Friday Nov 28 through Monday December 1 try to withdraw from the spending sprees. Support your local mom and pop businesses in your neighborhood. They will appreciate you more.

Years ago, in 1989 a friend and I were passing through Washington Square Park near New York University (NYU). There was a large rowdy crowd arguing about racism. We decided to stop and take in the debate.  A young black man dressed Rasta style “could-be” an NYU student, argued about racial issues in America with a young white “could-be” NYU student. They went back and forth. I finally stepped in and said, “It’s not about white or black. The establishment loves to watch us bicker, fight and kill each other. It’s about green. Dollars and cents. Wealth. How much money you earn and how you distribute it.” The story goes on a little further but you get the purpose of it.

In my observation and experience, capitalism fulls democracy and democracy supposedly spawns freedom. But are we truly free? I think not. In my opinion the minimum wage is a somewhat respectable form of slavery. A new economic slavery. “Go to college, get your degree and you will get a good job.” Really? Where are those good jobs? I read over and over again how college graduates can not find jobs. Well let’s debate this topic. Join in. I would love to read your comments.”

Is President Truly Empathetic or just Pathetic?….@BarackObama Condemns Ferguson Violence |@CALLISTE

Fires in Ferguson, Missouri

According to @Calliste 2014, “Yesterday President Barack Obama had the audacity to condemn the violent acts of the protesters in Ferguson, Missouri. Has Obama forgotten how he commands American drones and the U.S. military to fire on innocent and some times guilty people in non-confrontational countries? People in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen and other countries have not attacked America or Americans. Not one bullet. Yet he commands drone attacks against “could be” terrorists and their families, including unarmed woman and children. While the Ferguson protesters have a valid reason to exert force. Not permissible but still more of a valid reason than American troops and technology killing innocent people.

Lets allow ourselves to think for a minute: Possibly the Ferguson protesters feel the need to be violent because America as a whole is a very violent country. Gun toting, same culture killing…police executing…violence breeds/ begets violence. If the leadership at the top condones violence in the international arena that leader or those leaders should expect no less within the country.

I can go on for quite some time on this subject. But join in. I would love to read your comments.”

Jerry Calliste Jr. Hashim Electro Hip Hop, Techie

Hashim Considers Filing Libel Suit Against American Rapper and a Germany Based Electro Music Web Site – May Seek Millions in Damages | TheOfficialHashim.com

#hashim #electro #hiphop #musicmondays #libel #legal #lawsuit

Columbus, Ohio – Electro Hip Hop legend Jerry Calliste Jr. p.k.a. Hashim celebrated a 30 year anniversary on November 10, 2013 of the continued success of his 1983, Cutting Records, EDM and Hip Hop music classic “Al-Naafiysh (The Soul)” or as some refer to the song “It’s Time”. Hashim sold over 2.5 million units, appears on 150+ “definitive”, “best of”, “classic” Electro or Hip Hop music compilations, on at least 6 major and 3 independents labels and 4 popular video games.

Along with success and celebration comes negativity. “People can disagree and share their opinion but to outright lie, or twist and make up untruths and have it posted publicly to try and ruin my career or negatively affect my career will not be tolerated” said Calliste Jr.

Physical threats, negative statements and outright lies were made in the name of a rapper representative of an American based Hip Hop group on a Germany based Electro music web site, while being interviewed about his career and not Hashim’s. “At this time, I choose not to name and identify the rapper, the name of the artist’s group and the Germany based Electro music web site until my team and I decide my direction in the matter” said Calliste Jr. … READ MORE > http://theofficialhashim.com/site/2014/04/hashim-considers-filing-libel-suit-against-american-rapper-and-a-germany-based-electro-music-web-site-may-seek-millions-in-damages/
