” 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 ……

“Double Standards” … A Poem written by Big Virge 29/11/2013

Yes Yes people ….. !!!

Well, it’s time to get … SERIOUS … once again people !

This subject of … ” Double Standards ” …. could be a book, rather than a poem, but, ya know sometimes, it takes something to happen in life, to inspire such a work, as the one I now post …..

To give you some background to where this has come from …..

A White guy I know, yes that’s right, I said it ….

He is WHITE, was showing himself to be supportive of UKIP / EDL, type ideals, in reference to Englands’, rising Islamophobia, and general distrust of immigrants, unless of course, they’re Aussies, South Africans, or Kiwis, and I don’t mean Maoris or Aborigines either ….

This individual, who used to live behind my London home, upon seeing that I actually take these matters, which of course, encompass British Racism, VERY SERIOUSLY !

…. took it upon himself, after referring to some kind of friendship, we apparently had, which was a figment of his Very, CLEARLY, vivid imagination…………

….. to drop the kind of lines, that, define the hypocrisy, and …

” Double Standards ”

…. that are prevalent in, Far Too Many, White Brits, especially when it comes to their,

” Oh So PRECIOUS ” …. Cun’ …

Ooopps, typo ….. COUNTRY !!!!!!!

…… So, he then took it upon himself, to advise me that he wasn’t aware that I was Englands’ version of Martin Luther King, and that I seemed quite happy to be in England, whilst I could live there & get paid … !!!!!

Well, as I then, quickly, had to explain to him, I would of left long ago, had my mother not needed me, due to my father leaving her, upon finding out that she had Multiple Sclerosis, which, this white boy should of been aware of, due to the …. VERY CLEARLY MARKED … DISABLED PARKING BAY … in front of our home, that he used to walk past, to go for a drink in the pub next to my house !!!!!

He then chose to apologise for his … ” Oversight ” …

TOO LATE !!!

Thus, this poem is, not only, a response to his rather, fast mouth, that clearly opens, before his brain pathways, allow any thought waves to be received !

It’s also a message to everyone, firstly, the black actors, complaining about not getting their trinkets for being, paid liars, by their white, puppet masters ?!?

Now, I know people don’t like to think these things, but logically, what are actors exactly ?

Well, let’s look at slaves, for a sec, shall we ?

They would of been, and in certain cases, still are directed, as to when to do things, and, more importantly, when they could, or should speak right ?

So, exactly how does that differ to having a director, who could quite conceivably, be a black, house negro, dictating his masters wishes, (being Hollywood), to the lesser, black slaves right, (The Actors) ?

So, how does it differ, well today ….

It’s the … LEVEL of PAY, that they now receive, right ……..

Think about it ……

Now, i’m not saying people should stop acting, or, making TV Programmes or films, because I like a good performance, like the next person, however, people need to recognise what they are watching, a person presenting a facade, to make you buy into the act they present, to make you believe, they are something, they are NOT !!!!!

Sound familiar at all people ???

I think it probably does for most of you, from friends, to partners, to politicians, leaders and business associates, and ESPECIALLY ….. ENTERTAINERS, who spend much of their lives, in front of cameras, or, behind microphones !!!!!

So, be they white or black, as Danny DeVito recently said, they all work for a rather, ” Elite Club “, of racists, in a country that has founded itself, on acts of Terrorism, against people of colour, from the moment they, as ……

Wait for it …………….

IMMIGRANTS …. !!!!!!

…. went and STOLE land, to claim for their own, to then, import black slaves, to labour for them, to profit in ways, that, set up legacy of … well …

I’d say ….. ” Double Standards ” ……

Let’s not forget the Oregon situation, and how it’s being handled by the police, regarding, FEDERAL LAWS … !!!!!!

…. that are seemingly, being BROKEN … !!!!!!

…. by a set of well, for want of a better phrase, gun toting, trailer park, rednecks, as opposed to the way the police handled the citizens of Baltimore & Ferguson, whose vindication for their behaviour, was due to the loss of life, NOT LAND, or the rights to use …… Again ……

STOLEN LAND !!!!!!

Oh and one last thing, one of the … BIGGEST … !!!!!!

Double Standards ….

…. that seems to see, little sign of changing, is the attitude of black people, towards black people who have, ” The Minerals “, to speak out against the system, that they claim, is still oppressing them ….

…. and is responsible for their lot !!!

Well, i’m not foolish enough to think that, it has had, no effect !

However, if the mere sound of a black voice speaking the truth about it, FRIGHTENS their arse, to the point where they immediately, show you that,

” You should be careful what you say, because they will come for you ! ”

The double standard they live by, may well be the one that they then quote, as being the reason any black who has done so previously, ends up dead, invariably in, dubious circumstances …… ?!?!?

Well, if they have to stand, pretty much, alone, it’s no surprise that in 2016, we are still making, petty stands, to gain a yard, to be driven back three …..

The COWARDICE, Yeah I said it … !!!

COWARDICE …. !!!!!!

… and, inability to, TRULY UNIFY as … A MOVEMENT !!!!!!

…. makes it pretty easy for the powers that be, to continue to do, what they’ve now been doing for Centuries, to live and maintain the double standards that they, not only live by, but the double standards that the masses live by, that, in the case of black people, can leave us dead, or fighting each other, or worse still, fighting over fame and fortune, rather than, fighting for equality as well as social & spiritual development, that helps us to grow as a unified people, who stand together, to ensure that the legacy of slavery, does not allow our lives to be taken and then deemed by the law, to be done so, with impunity ….

and more importantly, to stop white guys like the one who inspired this, running their chops, as if we should’t run ours when they get found out to be continuing with the very same wicked actions, that defend their …….

“Double Standards” …….

Well, my mind and body are neither penned, or, dead yet, but if speaking the truth is the cause of either, occurring in my future, well, as I said to a black man here in Barbados who, upon hearing a track of mine, exhibited the same attitude I spoke about above,

Remember ….

TRUE CREATIVITY, does not cower into a corner due to FEAR, and if it does, it’s simply not REAL …

and like the title of the poem states, stands buy …. ” Double Standards ” …..

You have been WARNED !

This is for : Stephen Lawrence, Christopher Alder, Anthony Walker, Trayvon Martin, their families, and all the others who have suffered, or, lost their life due to police, racism, or the racists who take pride in using the colour of a persons skin, to justify taking life !!!

So, do yourself the favour of NOT Listening, if The Truth, FRIGHTENS You, or, offends you, to the point of some, ignorant reaction …..

which probably proves that you also live by ….

Double Standards !!!!!!

Okay …. Rant Over …. !!!!!!!

Now, only click play if your … HARD ENOUGH, as the Brits’ like to say okay ……. !!!!!

One.

” Reason ” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge

Okay folks …..

It’s that time of the month for some, Big Virge, Poetic Stuff ….

I am a long way from home currently, but it seems that, after the Paris attacks, Gatwick Terror alerts, and more gun massacres in the US, that, reasonable thought processes are being forsaken for, ” Gung Ho’ type “, reactionary responses.

So, as The Pope has been doing his thing in Africa, and Trump doing has been doing his … i.e.

“Running His Gums” …. in the US …..

I’m wondering, where the logic and reason is …. in peoples rhetoric currently ???

Well, it’s time for some reason, Big Virge Styled, that defies all these extremist type attitudes, and I don’t mean, ISIS, ISIL or any other type of group who is deemed to be wreaking havoc across the globe right now …..

Those who know, KNOW, they are far from being the only terrorists out there, in this world of ours …..

I am currently in New Zealand, funnily enough, YET ANOTHER, British Colony, in a place called Queenstown, also like Barbados, to the locals, known as you guessed it …. Little England, due to the volume of Brits who now, live and work here, where, as a Zimbabwe born farmer told me….

“When they came here, the Brits were bloody stupid !!!”

…. when speaking about certain agricultural policies, that they rather foolishly employed, that when thought about, were quickly proven to be as stupid, as much that is being spouted currently, by them and their apparently, ” Special Friends “, across the water !?!

Well, having managed to gain a little Maori culture, in my first few days here, it only seems fitting that I should, this month, share a piece that shows how much respect I have, not only for the GREAT, All Black Rugby team and World Cup Winners for 2015, but also, a culture whose warrior spirit, deals in more than reactionary responses to war …..

Thus, here is a poem that touches on that, and much much … more … !!!

In a time where we are seeing people act in very, irrational ways ….

Take some time out to listen to some thoughts based on, as said ….

Sumthin’ more, than talk of ignorance, terror and war ……

“What Do You See ?” … (The words) … A Poem written by Big Virge 7/3/2005

So … What do you see … ?
when … you look at yourself … ?

Do you see an … ” Image ” … ?
or a … ” Picture of Health ” … ?

or the …
” Fakest ” … of people
who’d rather see … ” Wealth ” … ?

Dunno bout’ … you … ?

but …
I see … A Brother …
who’s from a … ” Hard School ” … !!!

A school of … ” Hard Knocks ” …
Surrounded by ….. ” FOOLS ” ….. !!!!!!

Some … who’ve been drowned …
in this … ” Western Whirlpool ” … !!!!

See … it’s easy to blame
My Problems on … ” Colour ” …
but these days … I feel …
like … problems i’ve got …
come from sisters and brothers …
who live for … ” THEMSELVES ” …

REGARDLESS … of colour … !!!!!

But ….
DON’T … Get Me Wrong … !!!
being black … can be … TOUGH … !!!!!

cos’ …
white folks just … ” Use Us ” …
and place us … ” In Cuffs ” …

But ….
People are People … !!!

Some Blacks … do the stuff …
that leads me to … ” Thinking ” …

Some blacks …
You … CAN’T TRUST … !!!!!

” Ashes to Ashes ” …
or … ” Dust to Dust ” …
when I look at myself …
Sometimes … I just … CUSS … !!!

Why am I … in this form … ?!?
Why am I … not the norm … ?!?

and …
What’s with these … ” Racists ” … ???
who wish I …. ” Wasn’t Born ” …. ?!?!?

Is what you see … REAL … ???
or … do you … “conceal” …
The Truth … from yourself …

While you eat …
” Wagon Wheels ” … !?!?!

That line …
Was a … Joke … !!!

But …..
That verse … ” Provokes ” …

A …. ” REALITY CHECK ” …

for … ALL of you folks … !!!

This here … is a poem …
That’s Searching for … TRUTH …

So …
Are you … ” Pretentious ” … ?
or …. Are you just … YOU … ?

and ….

What does that mean … ?!?
Can you … DEFINE YOU … !?!

or …

Are you a … ” Victim ” … ?

Redundant of … PROOF …

that …
What you … ” Believe ” …
Confirms you as … TRUE … !!!!!

TRUE … in your actions
TRUE … in your thoughts
TRUE … in the luxuries

that you have … sought … ???

See …
These are the questions
” WE ALL ” … have to face … !!!

But … do you face them … ?
in the … ” Cold Light of Day ” … ?

Or …
Do you see them … ?
But Still …….. “shy away” …

Then … jump on a train …
for a … ” Quick ” … away day …

But ….
That’s NOT … The Ticket … !!!

These are … ” Poetic Lines ” …
with … No Need to … ” Picket ” … !!!

It’s … PAINFUL … I know …
to … ” Spiritually ” … go …
to the … ” Depth of ” …

….. ” Your Psyche ” …..

Without some … ” New Nikes ” … !!!

Are you laughing … ” Politely … ?
or maybe … you might be … ?

Listening …….. silently ……………….

cos’ that line … just might be … ?
PIERCING …. ” Your Psyche ” ….

You …
Don’t … have to like me …
I’m … ” Used to that now ” …

But … Liking Yourself …
is … ” What I’m About ” … !!!

cos’ …
If you like … YOU … !!!

You’ll like … ” Others Too ” … !!!
and this will ….. ” Pass on ” ………..
to those who have … ” Youth ” …

cos’ they …
NEED … ” THE TRUTH ” …
to make the right moves …
and then … ” Our Society ” …
Might just …. IMPROVE …. !!!!

A poem … like this …
can cover … So Much …

Not just ….
” Such and Such ” …

But …
” Deep-Rooted ” … FEARS … !!!
We … ALL … Need To Touch … !!!

Like ….

What’s … REALLY … in you ?
What’s … REALLY … in me ?

How … doing these things …
can … set our minds … FREE … !!!

FREE of …….. Constraints ….
That … ” Control ” … how we be …

FREE … to create …
A world … ” Full of Peace ” …

” Freedom ” … to greet …
EVERYBODY … we meet …
from … London to Paris …
to … ” Sesame Street ” …

Now …
This … ” Final Verse ” …
Should … make this … COMPLETE … !!!

Be … TRUE TO YOURSELF … !!!
Be … REAL WITH YOURSELF … !!!

ACCEPT …. in yourself ….
The cards … You Have Dealt … !!!

and when you’ve done this …
Take a … ” Look at Yourself ” …

and …
If you feel … FREE … !!!

Have a … ” Smile to Yourself ” … !!!!!

” Stretch Out ” …
Like A …. TREE …. !!!

Be … Who You Be …
for …. ETERNITY …. !!!!!!

and this …
I am … Hoping … ???
will make you … HAPPY … !!!

Then … REMEMBER ME … !!!

The Brother … BIG V …
and … REMEMBER … This Piece …

Fa’ REAL … “What You Waiting For !?!” … A Poem written by Big Virge 8/10/2006

Listen Man … !!!!!
“What you waiting for ?!?”

A Housewife and Mother …
who acts like a … ” WHORE ” … !?!

Good Luck with that man !!!

If you find one like … THAT … !!!
Trust me … She’s … ” Unique ” … !!!

A … ” Sexy Ass ” … FREAK ..
Who’s … Happy to … ” Clean ” …

Then … get in the kitchen …
and cook … ” Happily ” …
Then act like a … SLUT …
in a ….. ” Porn DVD ” …… !!!!!

If you’re waiting for … “Her” …
to just …. ” Come Along ” ….
I have to …. ” Infer ” ….
that your hopes are ….

… ” Quite Wrong ” … !!!!!

It’s …
One or … The Other …
That …. you’ll get ….
… ” My Brother ” … !!!!!!!

But …
If you are … ” Lucky ” … !!!
Two … Out of … Three …
is a … Pretty Good … Deal … !!!

Why wait for …

” A Dream “… !!!

that will … NEVER …
… Be … ” REAL ” … !?!

You may wait …
… ” FOREVER ” … !!!
and that’s not so …
… ” CLEVER ” … !!!!!!!

This is the …

” REAL WORLD ” … !!!!!

Where … women and girls …
are making things … ” Tough ” …
for men to find …. ” Love ” ….

Now Don’t ….
Get it … ” Confused ” … !?!

There still are … ” A Few ” … !!!
who TRULY … are … ” Cool ” … !!!

But …
” Trust ” … in this man … !!!
Most Women … Now Choose …
to live in ….. ” Wonderland ” ….. ?!!!?

Just like …. ” Alice ” …

Confused and Bemused … ???

with … All kinds of …
…. ” BAGGAGE ” …. !!!!!

On Drugs that cause ….
…. ” DAMAGE ” …. !!!!!!!!

These days ….
They’re … CLEARLY … !!!
Felling … ” Malice ” … !!!

and driving men to …
” Smoke Di Chalice ” …

Filled with … CRACK … !!!

Down The Pipe … !!!
To … The Point …
Where they’ll ….
” TAKE LIFE ” …. !!!!!

Now …
That’s … NOT RIGHT … !!!!!

” Taking Life ” …
Through … SUICIDE … !!!!!

Not just … ” Their Own ” … !!!
Nowadays … Some Children …
Have … No Guides … !!!!! …

because of …..
” Jealousy ” …
and … ” Pride ” … !!!!!

Now girlfriends … DIE … !!!
and … EVEN … Wives … !!!

because of … men …
who’ve … LOST … Their Minds … !!!!!

LOST …
Their … ” Patience ” … !!!
or …. ” Their Child ” …. !!!

“Come on now man !
What you waiting for ?”

You KNOW … The Score … !!!
Don’t wait for a … ” WHORE ” … !!!!!

Try …
Waiting for a … Girl … !!!
who’s got … much more … !!!!!

Like ….. LOVE ….. !!!
to … Help You …
“Stay On” … Course … !!!!!

and …
Find a … LOVE …
That’s … RICH … !!!
NOT … ” Poor ” … !!!

Now …
Hold on a minute … !!!

Let me ask you … THIS …

“Young Lady,
What you waiting for ?
Are you waiting for him ?
to be a man,
instead of a kid !?!”

Let me … Quickly …
Balance … my script …

Now …
If he treats you …
Like a … ” Bitch ” …

What you waiting for ?
Get … RID of … Him … !?!

Don’t … wait for a time … !!!
when you … start to find …
that he makes you … Frown … !!!
instead of … ” Smile ” ….

Or …
EVEN WORSE … !!!

Wait for him to say …

“I’m sorry, I
punched you,
In you face !
I was angry babe,
it won’t happen again !”

cos’ that’s … NOT OKAY … !!!
and is … Bound to … HURT … !!!

If your man is … ” The Type ” …
to … ” Smash Up ” … Your Face …

Just because …
He can’t … have … ” His Way ” …
and you find … you can’t take …
his ways … ” ANYMORE ” … !!! …

Walk Out …
The Front Door …

“What you waiting for !?!”

I Know… it’s … HARD … !!!!!
to just ….. ” Walk Away ” …..

In …..
ACTUAL FACT …

That’s …
Not quite … TRUE … !!!

If something …
” Feels Wrong ” …

THAT’S IT …
I’m … GONE … !!!!!

No … ” Playing Games ” … !!!
or … ” Calling Names ” … !!!!!!

When all’s …
Said and Done …

What’s the point of that … !?!?!

I Must be … DUMB …
or the … ” Only One ” … !!!
to believe that … Things …
“Should Be” … More Fun … !!!!!

I guess that’s down to …
” Governments ” … ?!?
The … ” Media ” …
and how they’re … RUN … !?!

“Promotion” … of … WAR … ?!?
and …. ” Other Stuff ” ….
is …. ” Making Us ” ….

…. ” Not ” ….
Want To … LOVE … !!!!!

What are … Your Thoughts … ?
Do you stand for … ” LOVE ” … ?
or … Want … MORE WARS … !??!??!

From …
Religious Fights …
Home and … ” Abroad ” …
to … ” Oil Pipelines ” …
for … ” Good Ol’ George ” … !!!

“So Many” … LIES … !!!!!
while soldiers … ” Die ” …

That’s …
Their … ” CHOICE ” … !!!
So … Should I … ” Cry ” … ?!? …

They have …
” Their Cause ” …
and … So Do … I … !!!

To … ” Elevate Minds ” …
Who … “ignore” … SIGNS …

That …
ALL THESE WARS … !!

Need to … STOP …
…. ” For Sure ” …. !!!!!

If you want to see … MORE …
than … Violence … ” SOAR ” … !!!!!

Like a world of …
… ” Happiness ” …

….. ” For ” …..
” One and ALL ” … !!!!!

Do …..
“Your Bit” … NOW … !!!!!
