Can I Have Your Attention?

Can I Have Your Attention?

What a time to be alive...
That's been the slogan the past few months in the hip hop community and it has transcended over into the every day living of regular civilians... I mean even I got excited when Drake and Future tweeted out the link, arguably the two hottest artists in the game, who wouldn't be? But let's put the music aside for a sec, I guess what we have to ask ourselves is, is it a good time to be alive or bad? Every month it seems like another young black man has been taking from us by OUR police force.. There's young black kids all over the country who are uncomfortable in they're own skin because they don't know what's going to happen to them when they step outside of the house. Mike Brown, Tamir Rice, Freddie Gray, look just like ME!!! Shit, you know how many hoodies I got similar to that one Trayvon Martin had on. What a time to be alive right? My apologies.. I am a 28 year old black man from the inner city of Seattle also known as the Central District.. So forgive me if it sounds like I'm only looking at it one sided but honestly It's the only way to look at it, wrong is wrong!
Maybe I jumped the gun a bit, while your letting that marinate in your mind let's rewind a lil bit and give notice to the group giving me this platform to even vent.
Skyblue!! Let's take a moment to acknowledge what this is.. A movement, a lifestyle, a cult?? What if I told you it was just a group of guys with free spirits and big dreams and aspirations.. A non judgmental group who supports you whether your with them or against them because positive vibes is all they believe in. You remember that first note you got from a crush, or the first time your teammates made you feel like you belong, or what about that one time you were scared to be around a certain crowd and ended up befriending some of your greatest friends. The ultimate feeling of who you are, where you are & who you're with, that's what Skyblue is. I mean as u can see I was having a real black panther moment but I had to ease off the gas for a sec.. In the words of my beloved Loaded Lux.. "We Got All Night for That". I guess I just wanted to give y'all a Floyd Mayweather jab and see how y'all respond, I've got a lot to talk about and you will be hearing more from me but for now let's give a round of applause to the skyblue Family! In a min....
