    A Conversation with Munch-Dog

    in Hip Hop Music

    Munch-Dog’s interest in music began as a young man growing up in St. Mary’s County, Maryland, when he heard two prominent hip hop stars-- “2pac” and “Scarface.” Their gifts, talents, and passion were expressed in a real way that could be related to, understood, and felt deeply by audiences of varied status, culture, and ethnicity.



    With this inspiration, in 1993, he started freestyling. He would spend time practicing in his bedroom alone, and with his
    group of friends. They quickly became some of the best freestylist in their area.

    In 2000, Munch-Dog, Izy-O and two other members decided to form the rap click and record label “K.O.A.” (Knowing Our Aim). They made three mixed tapes and a compilation album. With the help of producers, “JT” and “Stretch” they became known for their lyrical ability and music beats. Performing all over the DMV with fellow KOA member “Relentlezz Dre” they became known for their stage presence and ability to draw a crowd.

    In 2008, Munch-Dog embarked upon his solo career. He has accomplished the following:

    • Recorded and released on iTunes, his first solo album, “Finally Here”
    • Has opened up for artists such as: David Banner, Knowledge (from the Grammy award winning group, “Diggable Planets”), and more
    • Recorded his
    first music video-- “Baby Let me Know,” with the three time, DMV award winning, Skinny
    Corleone


     


    Munch-Dog's New Mixtape "Nobody's Safe...Vol 1" is dropping this spring. with the 2 lead singles "Beat The Block" & "Everything"

    The Colour of Heaven!

    in Christianity

    There are many racist religious organizations out there that teach that salvation is only promised to people who belong to their specific ethnicity. Therefore, it should be no shock that these groups also teach that there will be no one in heaven outside of their particular race or clan. But is this biblically sound? TODAY, Saturday, April 11, 2015, tune in LIVE on BlogTalkRadio at 4:30 p.m. EST to hear, “THE COLOUR OF HEAVEN”!


    -How does the Bible describe the people in Heaven?


    -What does the Bible say about race and redemption?


    -What is the connection between race and martyrdom?

    "RACE vs ETHNICITY....... THE CONFUSION"

    in Lifestyle

    Race;  Each of the major divisions of humankind, having distinct physical characteristics.
    Ethnicity; The fact or state of belonging to a social group that has a common national or cultural tradition.
     
    There’s a constant act of prying and segregating the principle of representing one another as a whole—as a RACE. Our ethnicity in some cases does create some confusion and helps in pushing a race apart instead of understanding the overall connection. The definition of the two is very much similar and can bring so much different interpretations from one person to the next. I think that the inferior prejudices that rise from these misinterpretations are what creates the overall division especially in the Black culture….. Tune in for our discussion tomorrow on LET IT BE KNOWN LIVE!

    The Selma blood was shed for racial hatred not a forerunner to gay rights

    in Culture

    People died because they were of an ethnicity people did not like.  They were battered and beaten.  Emancipation took over 200 years and is still in progress.  This is not a gay rights platform, the 50th anniversary of Selma, nor it should be.  Bishop Sam Green of the 12th District of the AME church paralleled suffering and remembrance through the history of Jesus.  Andrew Young, long time civil rights activist tried to use the green and global color symbols of the new blend of diversity struggles.  Only one message held true and that was of Bishop Green.    People like Tamir Rice and his death should have been commemorated, not gay civil rights struggles.
