Music lets us harmoniously bring our souls together with our vessels. For too long, we have been bombarded with nonsense and crap from popular agents of distortion by the advertising demons of Madison Avenue in New York City.
I stopped listening to mainstream rap (what I consider crap) music around 2006, when I figured out the message behind this music. At the time, I believe my soul was upgrading to fulfill its contract with Divine Source and somehow I immediately “just knew” how to eradicate the evil system that was in place. Maybe one of the principles of Prepare For Change and its groups is to bust up all the evil systems. Perhaps the Prepare for Change groups are actually ”system busters!”
Anyway, I have always loved hip-hop music. This music goes a way back—I’m guessing as far back as the Atlanteans, Lemurians, and the Egyptians. When I think of the great, soulful hip-hop artists, I think of Prince Ea, Chance The Rapper, KRS-One, and a whole bunch of others.
Hip means popular and hop is a movement or style, so hip-hop means popular movement or popular style. This music is not the rap or crap music that has been put in the mainstream since the 1980s, such as gangsta rap. Hip-hop actually spreads a message in an artistic way that everybody can understand. I feel the movement of the true hip-hop artists needs to be fed and encouraged so that this loving, artistic and popular movement can flourish.
One of my favorite hip-hop heroes is Prince Ea. Now, I’m a guy, but I am never ashamed of crying when I see heartfelt messages of truth and love. Prince Ea makes me cry.
Love: The Answer to Every Problem
Prince Ea was born and raised on the north side of St. Louis Missouri. He is 27 years old, a poet, filmmaker, and speaker.
Here is what Prince Ea has to say:
“We have a limited number of breaths on this planet. This realization is what led me to create the content I produce now. I am grateful for every moment, every unrepeatable miracle, and while I’m here I want to reach every single heart on the planet to show them that at our core we are Love, we are free, and we are one.”
How about that, folks?

It’s all a pretty good take on what’s going on from this guy from St. Louis.
