“Here It Is !” … Produced by Strat Carter

Okay folks, time for this weeks musical drop, as it’s time to move on to Virges’ World Vol. 2 ….

A further foray into the blending of spoken word poetry, with Hip Hop styled beats…….

I am the first to say that it probably isn’t as well put together as the first Virges’ World effort, however, as ever, there are mitigating circumstances with musical endeavours, but, this opener is one of the better tunes that came from it.

Thanks again, to my man Strat’, for producing the track …..

Needs no explanation, as the title and the lyrics will do all that for you !

So Simply ….

” The World is Fine ” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

So folks, as per the title of the post, let me just say that …

It REALLY IS Ya Know … !!!!!

I am not, and probably will never be a huge environmentalist, simply because of the ridiculous levels of hypocrisy that seem to follow those, claiming to be the biggest supporters of change, that would benefit this world that we live on.

I’m not even gonna waste time to start calling names, because there are far too many individuals, who are blatant hypocrites, and those who perhaps, are a little more careful in keeping their indiscretions hidden !

However, let’s just look at our good friends, the politicians who CLAIM to give a damn ……

UNTIL …..

Monetary factors begin to sway their visions of being,

” A TRUE Friend of The Earth ” …..

Who the people can believe in … !!!!!

Well, I think the first port of call should be their chauffeurs, and someone should ask them, just how environmentally friendly their employers are when it comes to their cars, and their fuel emissions, and that’s before we get to flights, jets. etcetera etcetera !!!

Pop Stars …. ?

Yeah RIGHT, like they aren’t professional liars and hypocrites, for the most part !!!

Then of course, The PROTESTORS, who stage these gatherings that, apparently, effect some degree of change in politicians, or ministers in the UK, who couldn’t manage to gain a double figure turn out for environmental debates, in parliament chambers, as was recently exposed in the UK … !?!

It’s all a lot of HOT AIR …. and that is NO PUN Folks !!!!!

It all looks good until you realise, that, like most things in this world, money dictates how things are dealt with, as has recently been shown in the Notre Dame situation !

It’s clear that the super rich have their specific causes that they REALLY Feel, are worthy of generous donations from them, which, if you apply it, in this case, could resolve INNUMERABLE Issues, linked to climate change …..

Well, couldn’t it …. ???

Just a thought folks, so, here’s my two cents on this subject, that caused such a stir in London recently, when the, Extinction Rebellion Demonstrations, which were in no small way, influenced by our younger generations, actually did disrupt how things functioned in London, well, for a few days eh … !!!

It’s back to the same ol same now then though, isn’t it … ?!?

So, not quite the same ol’ same from me, but a few thoughts on the environment, ecosystem, and the ecology that continues to damage, that which nurtures our very existence …. ?!?

Take a listen :

And… For The Readers, “Thought” … A Poem written by Big Virge 18/5/2017

I Believe That Thought …
Should Be Used For MORE … !!!

Than Being …
USED To … ENFORCE … !!!!!
FOOLISH Acts of War ….

I Import MORE Thoughts …
Than SEAS Do Shores … !!!!!!!!!

Because Thoughts …
… I’ve Explored …

Have Ensured I’ve Walked
A Path That … ABORTS …
Being Drawn To … Pitfalls … !!!!!

So OF COURSE …
I Walk …. TALL …..
And REJECT Being Caught …

Like The Saying Says …

… SHORT …

I’d Rather Go LONG … !!!!!
Where Thinking BELONGS …

In A World Where … KONG …
IS The One Who … Lives Long … !!!

Because He … Outthinks …
IGNORANCE That Links …

Thought Waves To …

……… “shrink” ………. ?

Instead of Thinking …
………. BIG ……….. !!!

Like … IGNORANT Racists …
Who Choose To RESIST …

Thoughts That Enlist …
Embracing Things …

Like …
Different Skins … !!!!

When What Lies WITHIN …
Should … SUPERSEDE This … !!!!!

Such Thinking Links …
Itself To … TERRORISTS … !!!

As Do GOVERNMENTS …
Whose Thoughts Defend …

DIVISIVE Trends …
Time and AGAIN … !!!!!

When Will Such Thoughts …
Come To … An END … ???

So Much … “PRETENCE” …
And LIES That … Lend …
Themselves To … LIARS …

That Then …
Cause … FIRES … !!!!

Where …
Towers BURN DOWN …
In … London Town … !!!!!

And The US … TOO … !!!!!!

Where Thoughts Get …
…. ” Confused ” …. ????

So …
Then Cause … ABUSE … !!!

Where Thought Is LOST …
To … MORE Than Bombs … !!!!

Gunshots From Cops …
NOT SEEN As … Wrong … ?!!!?

Or ……..

A Form of … ERROR …
That DO Cause TERROR … !!!!!

Take A Sec and THINK …………………………………………………..

Aren’t These Things Linked … ???

Most Would Say NOT …
Cos’ Their Thoughts Are …

………. “LOCKED” ……… !!!

WITHOUT … Sherlock …
To Unravel … P LO T S …. !!!!!!

That … As I’ve Said ….
DESTROY … TOWER BLOCKS … !!!

And …..
Peoples Lives … !!!!!

Does That Seem Right … ?

Thought Waves That Ride …
To INCREASE The PRICE …

of Land That’s Now PRIZED …
By The … “ Gentrified “ …. ?!?

DON’T Even … TRY … !!!!!!!
To Say That …. I ….
Am The … “ Type of Guy “ …

Whose Thoughts ….
…. TERRORISE …. !?!?!

I Think You’ll Find …
That I Just Write Rhymes …
That … RECOGNISE …

That Thinking DIES …
When The Media … LIES …

About … Loss of Life …
And The Reasons WHY …
Smoke FILLS UP Skies … ?!?

While Firefighters … FIGHT …
But … In The END CRY ….. !!!!!!!

Because They Couldn’t Save …
Children Who … DIED … !!!

Long Before THEY …
Got To … LIVE Their Lives … !!!

Like …
Government Guys …
Whose Thoughts … DENY ….

Doing …
What’s RIGHT … !!!!!

The UK Should Be ASHAMED …
That Names Like … “ May “ …

Are Those Whose Thoughts …
Nowadays …. DICTATE …. !!!!!

As I Said BEFORE …

ENOUGH With Their TALK …
That KEEPS … Building Forts …
To Fight … Terrorist Wars …
On …. Foreign Shores …

When They …
Should Think MORE …
About … Making SURE … !!!

That Things In Zones …
That They Call … ” HOME ” …

Are … “ SAFE and SOUND “ …
And DON’T Burn Down … !!!!!

They Need To Export …
LESS IGNORANT Talk … !!! …

That KEEPS …
Fuelling WARS ….. !!!!

And Should Maybe …
… Import … ???

Thinking That ENSURES…
BETTER Lives For US ALL …. !!!!

But …
That Can Only Come …

From …
HIGHER LEVELS … of …

“Calm” … Prod by Chris Peden

So folks, as the release of the EP approaches, here’s my Favourite track of the four to be initially released from the, On The Virge Album, which will follow in 2019

In times where tensions are running pretty high, politically, socially and in peoples’ general attitudes to one another, this is pertinent subject to present artistically.

Territory issues, Personal and otherwise !
Certain vibes need to just ease down………..

So, as the track says, i’d rather see more of this, than all the other Pish’ going on right about now !!!

So, check it out …..
and remember to …. KEEP YOUR ….

“Punch” … Produced by Chris Peden

So folks, onto the third track from the soon to be released, Living On The Virge EP.

The fact that many people these days, are attempting to punch above their weight class, in no small part, inspired this set of words, that have now had some, rather crazy Revvvvveeerrrrrbbbb added, amongst other things, to make this track …..

Thinking about the apparent, upcoming, ” Big Fights “, in the Heavyweight Division, and then thinking of the Great Fighters mentioned in this track, kinda affirms my belief, that, things just ain’t as good as they used to be …..

So, as said, CRAZY as the music is, the lyrics are far from being so …..

So, put this on blast, and reminisce with me as I associate this business of lyricism, with some great fighters from the past……

“Mad Talent” … Prod by Anthony Lowhar

Yes Yes People …..

Keeping it moving with another track from Virges World Vol. 2.

This one is my take on the abundance of CRAP that has infiltrated the creative realm of music, and more importantly, the lyricism that makes Great Music …. GREATER, by saying things that have something more to offer people, than the nonsensical mumblers and others, who seem quite happy to desecrate artistry, for a quick fix of money, pussy, or notoriety.

Of course things move on, but as I have heard a couple of well known musicians, recently tell politicians, if, from a societal perspective, we seem to be regressing, I wonder how much of this is due to the music that is now being fed to young people …..

An interesting question which this tune addresses in no small way.

Thanks to Anthony L… on production …..

This piece here, is INDEED FILLED with …

… ” Mad Talent ” … !!!!!!

“People Like You” … Prod by Chris Peden

Okay folks, as has been previously promised, there is a forthcoming,

” On The Virge ” release, that is as musically experimental, as i’ll probably ever get !!!

Certainly Different, however, as powerful a sonic backdrop as this piece of verse deserves ….

Love it or Hate it, you really should play it, maybe more than, the once, before making your decision on it, as there is an abundance of music and sonic movement, to go along with the heavy lyricism and vocals of well, ME …

Check it out ….

” They Try ” … Prod by Strat Carter (Explicit)

Yes Yes People …..

Keeping it moving with more Big Virge Music !

Back to Virges’ World Vol. 2 …. for this Strat Carter produced number, we had a lot of fun in discussing & finalising the production for this, the effects are very deliberate on this track, not that the others haven’t been, but, it was interesting what each of us heard and how it all came together, in the end.

Having been shown some of the stuff deemed worthy of the recent VMA’s, especially from our young crop of so called, Hip Hoppers …..

Well, suffice to say, they’re doing they’re thing in the new age of what’s HIP, in Hip Hop, uh hmmm ….

My thoughts on a lot of these young cats, be they Kendrick Big, or, not so, are basically where this track starts, but moves as ever, into multiple areas of where people be trying REAL HARD, to prove they are …. ” Whatever ” ….

Well, sadly for me, they really AREN’T …

Trying hard enough to produce that good stuff, as expressed in this piece ……

Check it out here …..

Available on iTunes etcetera ……

“Standards” …. The Vocal .. written by Big Virge … 4/12/2012 …

Standards

So what’s the word people ?

World Cup Fever is now over, and what a World Cup it was … !!!

However, i’ll leave that subject to one of my next posts, suffice to say though, it’s been a hot summer in various places and standards are indeed, showing themselves to be diminishing in many areas.

From wild fires where people are losing their homes and lives, with very little assistance until after the fact, to fires that may well become a very hot topic, like the recent Ted Talk on how Paedophilia should perhaps be viewed now.

Again, a subject that needs further discussion, but for now i’ll get back the usual poor standards, policing and safety for black people after the tragic death of Nia Wilson in Oakland.

Poor standards of conduct and behaviour, leading to sexual abuses by members of Oxfam in Haiti, and paramedics basically letting black people suffer and die in America, because of profiling, like the case of Nicole Galloway RIP, that leads some of them to believe that being black somehow means that, you couldn’t possibly have the money to pay for your medical insurance, which therefore means in their minds…..

“No money, NO RIDE, and no-one willing to save your life !?!?!”

Crazy and CRAZIER Times …. ?!?

We seem to be accepting pretty much anything as being reasonable nowadays.

Well, I think we might wanna just check on our standards, just a little bit, and recognise that without any, what exactly could this world become ???

“The Company You Keep” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes People,

So, World Cup fever is upon us, The Russkies’, have the chance to host, and I wonder what kind of hosts Vlad’ and his men will be eh ….

Time will tell, but it’s a time you are going to need be VERY WISE, in the company you keep, methinks !!!

Like say, Tommy Robinson … ???

Who seems to have caused quite the stir !!!

Obviously a man who holds very strong views regarding immigrants and their behaviour, but maybe he should check his company and more importantly, what they have become reputed for, hateful speech and criminal deeds, and yet some white folks are INCENSED, that he should be judged so harshly, or at all, considering the way the immigrant paedophiles have behaved.

Hmmmm, pot calling kettle at all, anyways, moving on, what can one say about this week, Donald and Kim, finally together, to show the world the love they have for each other and a De-Nuclearised World … !!!!!

Phew, dunno bout you, but I was getting worried there for a minute …

…………… and if you believe that, then you probably believe that something meaningful was achieved between these two leaders, who were basically goading each other into some kind of instigation of war, not so long ago, if i’m not mistaken … ?!!!?

Ho’ Hum ….
Well, President Trump really is something !

Whatever you feel about him, he certainly does switch things up, on the REGULAR … !!!

Can’t finish this post without saying congrats to the Warriors !!!!!

4-0 …. Brooms were being brought out quite early …. LOL ….

So, it would seem that Lebron’ might just be removing himself from his current company of teammates, I wonder if he’s thinking about going to Golden State …… LOL ……. ???

Anyway folks enjoy the World Cup, if you’re gonna be following, but this piece is a SERIOUS One, on the perils of keeping bad company …..

Stuff to think on in these dangerous times ……

Peace and Guidance

The Virge …..
and, Come On Brazil, get with the programme this time !!!!!!!
