“Troubled Times” … Written and performed by Big Virge

So, what a sumting’ right about now eh folks… ?!?

Well, none of this is a particularly big deal to me, because as I have been told recently, I apparently need to learn more about my black history, before suggesting that black people need to look more, at …. THEMSELVES …. !!!

BEFORE, as the saying goes….

” Following the beer and getting drunk !!! ”

Of course it’s a terrible thing, that has happened to George Floyd, may he rest in peace !

However, everyone out there rioting, needs to look REAL HARD at themselves, as do those who feel that #Blackout……

…. Whatever it was, should assuage any shame that they might feel, about sitting on their asses, after making money for the same dirty, corrupt system, that allows for what happened to Mr. Floyd, to happen …

Like REALLY Mo Fo’s … REALLY … !?!

… and then thinking that some ridiculous form of symbolism, makes them what …

… ” Woke ” …

… ” Down ” …

Or …..

Some other stupid F’k, when it comes to this stuff, that has run for centuries and CENTURIES, and will continue to, because, with all due respect to our dead, we have bigger fish to fry, like the continual flow of government lies, and people trying to convince themselves, and others, that they don’t !!!

Keep fooling yourselves, as are those protesting, as if, in this world now, everyone out there, is protesting for the SAME THING ?

Again, a foolish ideal, that people need to stop peddling as being something of worth, when it clearly is not.

Being stuck inside for two and half months, doesn’t have anything to do with the riots, and yes I mean the ridiculous one in London, at the moment, as well, huh … ???

Huh … ???

Now I really try not to advocate violence, but it seems to me that people aren’t aiming in the right direction, however, as freedom of expression is being mangled, and manipulated, to suggest that even the slightest expression, could be deemed as being unlawful now, as per Hong Kong, i’m gonna let these angry protestors figure it out for themselves ….

So, we have police, ” apparently “, joining protests now, and black folk are being shown to be hugging police !!!

We even have some appearances on road, of certain A-listers, and donations and the like, coming from all sorts of places !!!

Well, as i’ve said before, it takes a black man to be VIOLATED, to draw such actions, and protest…..

Again, REALLY … ?!?

So, for the well, lets just say, last 75 years, to make it easy, where has all this angst and money been huh … ?!?

I’m not gonna go on, because it really is proving to be quite pointless, but what I will say to end, is this, people need to be more focussed on vaccinations, and corona virus plans, and tests, that will impose more and more restrictions, not only on the times we can move around, but HOW we do …. !!!

Compulsory masks in the UK from mid-june, so, that law will find it’s way to it’s colonies soon enough too, i’m sure !

However, freedom of speech and expression, are being threatened folks, and all this flouting of curfews, etcetera, is actually enabling the forwarding of these agendas, behind locked doors.

Doubt if you will, but remember, Singapore is already employing robot dogs to enforce distancing, which is also a rather big factor in this protest madness !!!

As a friend said to me this week, if by the end of the month, there aren’t massive spikes in Corona Virus infections, well, he’s done with it !!!

I tend to agree, and shall be very interested to see, just how many cases occur, as a result of this increased level of social contact, in very public spaces….. like beaches eh, because let’s not forget about, just how many folks have flouted distancing laws to get to a beach, as soon as lockdown rules were even SLIGHTLY Eased … !!!!!

Anyway, suffice to say, I’m just TIRED of peoples’ bullchhit !!!

Like many others too I think !!!

I don’t care whether these people be, black people, white people, asian people, or alien F’ing people,

Political people, Police, and the rest of these, freaks and fiends, who continue to get away with what they do, while people place all their focus, again ” apparently “, on the death of just one person ….

Mr. Floyd, you are sadly, yet another who should not have been made to suffer, but there are others, that are being mis-treated, as these protests continue !

There are clearly quite a few incidents, that aren’t reaching mainstream news, that still show you what police and their crews are willing to do ….

…. Which is why this piece, written some, SEVENTEEN Years Ago, held weight back then, as it does today, sadly, in many more ways, that explains the dangers of what are truly becoming …..

“Mad Talent” … Produced by Anthony Lowhar

Well, as the title of the track suggests, I now know that I definitely have …..

” People Like You ” ….. Co-Produced by Anthony Lowhar & Big Virge

Okay folks, moving along through the Virges’ World, Debut Album …..

This month’s tune has a hard beat, and, much within it, that defines a growing number of people in this world of ours, in my opinion.

Fukholes’ ….. from leaders, to ministers, sports people to actors, and their co-horts, who seem to be, VERY FREE with themselves, when it comes to their sexual wants and desires, even if they’re not welcomed by those they want !!!

Political backstabbing, as per usual, even if, for a change, it’s down there in Zimbabwe.

Mugabes’ reign, finally comes to end, well, many a perspective has been expressed, and for a change, i’m gonna keep mine to myself for another time.

Now, as for Netflix and DC Bods, involved in superhero productions,

I think there are quite few of them in this poem, who are up in the production of some of the crap that they’re shooting, for the viewing public to endure ….

Uh Hmmm … ENJOY of course … !!!!!!

Fundamentally, the types of people referred to in this piece will sadly, always be around, and sadly, may well be in positions of influence and power, however, the bod who inspired this piece, was just a loud mouthed Jamaican, not averse to abuses of his own, who, one day drove my pen to get to express what I think about him and them, so just for him and THEM …..

If you are one of these people ……

WAKE THE FUNK UP …..
and CUT OUT Your Fukry …. !!!!!

As said, here is a beat, you can nod your head to and ENJOY !!!!!

Stay cool, and level ….. out there people ….

One.

But ….

He at least has some hard beats to move with ….. !!!!!

An old school sound for an old school type of crimefighter, and, in this case, rhyme writer …. !!!!!

Take it for a spin ….

Too-ings and Goings …. written by Big Virge 13/02/2017

Yes Yes people ……

So, as I sit here watching horses frolicking with each other, here in Barbados, much has been going on over the last couple of months ….

Well, first and foremostly, my debut album has finally dropped, production from Strat Carter & Anthony Lowhar, and that heavy, vocal lyricism, that is synonymous with the name Big Virge ….

The album is called VIRGES’ WORLD … and is available on an adundance of online platforms, but CD Baby is where it was released first ……

Hip Hop styled, but do not confuse what you hear as being that, nope, this is a SPOKEN WORD Album, just with different paces of speech, it’s Poetry.

So, don’t be dismissing, try and give the ish’ a listen, you might be surprised by what you find resides in this poets mind …..

Fresh, Real, Raw …. and built from my core values of honesty, straight talk, Phat beats, and yes, some offensive lyrics, to those who cannot work with Real Talk…..

….. which leads me to Brexit’ and The Trumpster’……

Well, having just returned from a London trip, I can safely say that Brexit has enforced the British drive to create themselves, a breed of Modern Slave, who clearly are only brave, behind polling cards, that define what resides in their hearts, which would seem to be to conform and follow the political whatevers…. ??? …. who seem to be doing, quite nicely thank you, regardless of what Brexit’ has done to the UK’s economy, and the general way that the country runs.

Movements towards a cashless society, less general dealings with people, and more with computers, and systems driven by technology ……

However, with all this tech, to drive in London, has become the complete opposite of what it once was …. Now you have cameras tracking your every move, 20 mile an hour speed limits, in areas once free for the brave to drive at speed, for fun, or simply to get where you needed to, if your were running a little late ….

Work home work, for most …. chasing that pound, even though it doesn’t get you far, unless you’ve got plenty of them, right about now !!!!!

In the space of a few months, the country has changed dramatically, and as a friend suggested to me, in basically 5 years, the populous of London alone, would seem to have doubled !!!!!

Parking is a complete nightmare, and costs an arm and a leg, with restrictions in place, here, there and everywhere ….. !!!!!

It’s pretty crazy, and looks like being a rough old ride, until this Brexit situation gets resolved !

Mainly because of the apparent cost of being the first to start, what may be a trend of countries exiting, what many claim to be a bureaucratic nightmare, being the EU, and it’s money train of freeloading MP’s & MEP’s, who apparently, have been getting fed like fat cats, for quite some time now !!!!

Figures in the Billions, being thrown around, possibly up to 600 Billion, being touted as the cost for Britain’s departure from the EU !!!

Well, who knows, or really cares …. Brexit’ voters ….. ???

Well, i’d say not, when looking at the basic costs of living in the UK right about now !!!!!

Anyways, it is what it is, but America, well, Donald has started as he suggested he would, creating mayhem, executive orders, that are being revoked by the legal system, and just like England, creating difficulties and concerns for companies, whose employees now, are not sure whether they are coming or going, it’s all good fun ….

Well, maybe not fun, but it certainly is a time of much change and as a friend said to me recently, there is a DISTINCT, change in the wind, and time will definitively tell, where it is, the world is now heading, and if the new US Presidents’ initial movements are anything to go by, the blasé attitudes that many have chosen to exhibit, and live by in recent times, are about to be turned upside down …… or are they ???

Well, Mr. Trump has already seen that he can be stumped by those who surround him, as in, congress, the senate, and the same people who seemed to have given him the job, who, when they rally together, are a force that even he, has to respect and bow to, well so far at least …..

This is all, simple proof of the fact that these Presidents are merely puppets for the world to focus on, while the agendas that have long since been discussed as the next wave of change, are being initiated and mobilised …..

Brexit’ and Trump, are diversions for bigger things to be put into place, in my opinion, like the rise of nationalism, from Europe to the US, and the NOT SO, United, United Kingdom … LMAOL

….. and as I read yesterday, South Africas’ ANC, and rival political factions, like the EFF (Economic Freedom Fighters), are far from finding ways to agree to disagree. There was fighting in the room, as Jacob Zuma attempted to give his, ” State of The Nation ” speech.

Well, how appropriate a title, the, ” State of affairs “, over there, may well be a pre-cursor for much that will occur over the next 18 months or so !!!

Let’s hope not, but hope, like Mr. Obamas … ” Change ” … would seem to have been a ruse, to make people believe that the Political Process, could actually step away from scandal, corruption and war …. and work for the benefit of the masses ….

If Obama did that for you, well, I think you need to wash the sleep out of your eyes and recognise that, as much as we have a larger number of people who are perhaps, less uncomfortable with integration and the rising of one nation, the nationalists like Mr. Trump, and his friends, like Theresa May from the UK, are not about to let that become a trend that will work for Twitter or any other media platform that feeds the masses …..

So indeed, it shall be an interesting 2017, with a great many more ……

Too-ing’s & Goings …….
