Be Thankful for What you've Got

William De Vaughn Sings:


Though you may not drive a great big Cadillac
Gangsta whitewalls
TV antennas in the back
You may not have a car at all
But remember brothers and sisters
You can still stand tall


Just be thankful for what you've got
Though you may not drive a great big Cadillac
Diamond in the back, sunroof top
Diggin' the scene
With a gangsta lean
Gangsta whitewalls
TV antennas in the back



You may not have a car at all
But remember brothers and sisters
You can still stand tall
Just be thankful for what you've got


Diamond in the back, sunroof top
Diggin the scene
With a gangsta lean, wooh-ooh-ooh
Diamond in the back, sunroof top
Diggin the scene
With a gangsta lean, wooh-ooh-ooh
Diamond in the back, sunroof top
Diggin' the scene
With a gangsta lean, wooh-ooh-ooh


Undakova Rhymes:


In this life you must be thankful for what you got


While you rising to the top.


You could drive a Cadillac


Rims spinning while you stop


Or you own a bicycle


And you chain it to the lock


To my high school kids


Thinking they gone drop


Out of school, cause they think it's cool


Hanging on the block


I spit true school slang when I talk


it really doesn't matter


if you famous or you not


Don't believe the hype


have you thinking that you not


A god body


Like you don't have angels that'll watch


Your body


Can’t deny you anything you want


first you must value


every single part


Of the struggle that we go through


Tearing us apart


Got us thinking that material things


A heal our hearts


That ain't in our cards


I can tell you that right now


without reading any palms


See we had everything from the pyramids and carved


In the temples our names


And was seriously involved


In a whole trade


That was pitifully dissolved


Over time, And the Sand swallowed cities that evolved


Over thousands of years


Our History is gone


The gold survived


But the mystery is unsolved


Could we take this in the afterlife?


that's your thoughts


But your spirit inside


know that ain't within the course


You can't take it with you there


So why do you even care?


I am not saying live in despair


Just be thankful while you're here


Cause it don't last long


Before you know it your life will fast forward


Thankful for my mom and my dad


Up above


and Thankful for all my friends


I show love


Thankful for my time on this I live earth live


Chilling in Brooklyn no kids


But I got vinyl that my mom and dad left


cause they couldn't bring it with him


and William de Vaughn was what my father use to spin


I am so grateful for him


and I so grateful for those of my past


without them we wouldn't know to walk this new path


Standing tall


Holding our heads so high


Be thankful for what you got


Yall know the reason why

Beyond the cloud of grief toward Ascension-EZINE

Move beyond the cloud of grief I just did a powerful ritual around making room for the good energy coming into my life. It consisted of sacrificial love. (the type of love where you have to leave something behind in order to bring in the love that we want) In other words transmuting what is leaden in life into what is golden.

I let go of journals that I have had since 2001. (The water element can be as destructive as fire as you can see in the image above) I went from telling the universe I still needed the "cliff notes" on all of the lessons I have learned since 2001 "just incase" to all of the wisdom I need in with me now and easily accessible. Fuggedaboutit! you are the technology you need.



Sometimes just REDUCING stuff is enough.  You don't have to do a total overhaul.  For example I had a jumble of medals and pins I had gained over the years from USOPEN, or track meets, or from some event etc.  They were all tied together and I would always hide them in som…

Retreat Recharge and Heal

I’ve been living in New York for 40 years, it is very easy to get distracted here.
That is why my partner High Prieztezz and I are adamant about retreating into nature annually.
Our Yo!Yogi Retreat helps us focus on self love and prioritizing our health as well as support ourselves and others in scheduling time to focus and recenter.

If you are looking for an opportunity to increase your commitment to daily spiritual hygiene & bodily awareness join us and de-stress on a 10-DAY immersive retreat into the crystalline quartz sand
beaches of sweet, juicy and magical Thailand

The Yo!Yogi retreat is founded upon the theme of transmuting fear and negativity into love. Based on the the archetype of Kali the Hindu Goddess also known as the dark earth mother, and represented through ISIS and the Black Madonna in many areas of the world. During the retreat we facilitate creative problem solving and project development using our Mojo (M.editative O.rganized J.oy O.ptimized)
to propel us in hel…

Support the women and children around the globe.

Are you a radical visionary looking to schedule more time for yoga, meditation. and consistent spiritual hygiene so you can continue to evolve into your highest self?

I have a solution that solves the problem of creatives like you not have the time, money and energy it takes to be self reliant and able to work on said spiritual activation.

"Having a safe secure J.O.B. will always leave you J.ust O.ver B.roke. You will always have slightly just over your monthly expenses.
What if you could earn more money than your current expenses (and unforeseen expenses) with meaningful work doing what you love?

Work to learn something that will bring you closer to your ideal version of you."

Working with a nonprofit organization that aligns with your practice is one way an artist can afford to live but also keep in alignment with their path.

I've incorporates this strategy into his own practice by working with BEAT Global.
"Beat Global is a Long Island City nonprofit that p…
