    Sista Dreya made a thread with a link that had this beautiful sista, Jamila effortlessly educate the masses on the articulation of blacks. So I wanted to share it for those that missed the link leading to it.


    Thank you sista Dreya...this was a nice find...

    Peace!

    Oh yeah. I really like this video. I always wanted to speak in such a way, I like how she clarify that speaking ghetto does not undermined a person's intelligence at all since it is really just another language(even though language doesn't exist. Only sound patterns)

    Yes, everything is vibration... and in knowing that language takes on a whole different meaning. I love that way she flowed back and forth.

    Peace!

    [email protected], she asked a very import question.....

    Who controls articulation?

    Now base on this question, who said "their" way was the only and right way?

    Ya see, we let folks come in and tell us sum'tin dat we have ben doin forevea is all of a sudden wrong.

    Peace!
