First, I want to thank the Lord God, His Son, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Let’s get that straight. As the great Afrikan teacher/theologian/historian, Ishakamusa Barashango, once said, “[The difference between] Spirituality & Religion is the following: [Spirituality] means you are aware of your connection with the total cosmic scheme [...] Religion is the path that you choose to set you to gain harmony with The One.”
I dedicate this project to all of my family that has gone on before me: my great aunt and uncle (Archie B. & Willie “Audrey” P. Harris), my maternal & paternal grandparents, & my mother, Lisa Elaine Landry – Hogan. I love you all and continue to live and fight in your name. I also dedicate this to my people who are still here: my younger brother on my mom’s side (De’von Jamar Hogan), my 6 uncles & 4 aunts on my mom’s side and my singular aunt on my dad’s side. Also, I want to dedicate this project to my father, David Earl Fisher. You my ride or die for real.
Shoutouts to everyone that has bought a shirt, got a CD, downloaded a song, came to a show, made a beat, did anything that contributed to the pushing forward of Dirty & Nasty. THANK YOU.
Lastly, I want to thank my wife, Dara, for riding with me through this whole thing. Come to think about it, you came into the picture near the beginning and you have supported me all the way through. I LOVE YOU!
P.S. – To MY people: We will make it. We have no choice but to make it. It is within us to make it. Let us all do our parts to create justice everywhere we go, that is, making sure that NO ONE is being mistreated and that the people that need the most help, receive the most constructive help.
I would like to first thank The One, the source, the point, the energy, the deity, the space, the place from which all of this emanates. I would secondly like to thank the muses who inspired this expression of creativity and resistance. All of the time, the conversations, the hugs, the kisses, the stories, the lessons, the meals, the drinks, the songs, the movies, the articles, the herbs, the rides, the love, the hate, the knowledge, the haircuts, the clothes, the hats, the shoes, the criticisms and critiques, the engineering, the mixing, the production, the documentaries, the graphics, the art, the models, the designers, of the beds and the places to crash, the features, the features not to be, the eventual features, the sponsorship, the sabotage, the backstabs, the triumphs, all those who showed love and lent a helping hand without looking for anything in return, this is a thank you to you.
I would like to dedicate this album to all the children of the melanated peoples of Earth and a special dedication to the original peoples of this earth: Africans. Keep your head up as the world continues imitate and be in awe of your universal intelligence, ingenuity, creativity, strength, shimmering beauty, gracefully movements, and while simultaneously mocking, raping, pillaging, imprisoning, destroying, and murdering the abundant fruits of your lands. This album was made with you in mind, body, and soul. Even in your pain and struggle you continue to inspire the globe and will continue to. And to the system of White Supremacy that dominates the globe and those whom support it, this message is for you: your system will die. Your system must die. 5/6ths of the worlds population can no longer function with you at the helm as supreme overlords. Your time is nigh. Fight the system, fix the future, rebel.
A high octane, highly intellectual Hip Hop duo from Houston, Texas comprised of Dirty Dog D (D3) & OG Nasty Nique (The Texas
Chainsaw). These SXSW Converse Rubber Tracks Alumni have ripped the stage from FPSF to the streets of Atlanta during A3C. A laid back style mixed with the coolness of raw power. Sounds like Public Enemy & Run the Jewels meets EPMD on holiday in Rap's New World....more
