    Future Conferences will be live streaming via rapsheet.com, but due to some technical glitches, this one will be hosted via Darryl James' radio show.

    The music industry is in flux, leaving many artists with no real understanding of how to make an entrance or how to make a living. Even the major labels have no real roadmap for dealing with new and emerging technology.

    Rap Sheet, the first Hip Hop Newspaper was launched in 1992 and by 1997, became the second largest rap music publication and the only one with Black ownership. After a brief hiatus, the publication and the website have been re-launched, taking advantage of cutting-edge technology to synergize and reinvigorate the music industry.

    The Synthesis Effect with Dr. John McGrail

    in Psychology

    Dr. John McGrail is more than a clinical hypnotherapist. He is an established self-improvement expert and a sought after spiritual teacher who has become one of our country’s leading media experts and public speakers relating to personal growth and successful life transformation.

    Quantum Synthesis, or more simply Synthesis, is the term I use for the process of creating change and personal growth. It is is an amalgam of information and technique– tapping into, and utilizing the power and potential of both the conscious, cognitive part of the mind and the unconscious, more spiritual part of the mind. It begins with building understanding at a cognitive, logical (Western-thinking) level as to how and why the human mind (conscious and unconscious) functions the way it does, and how we develop our physical, emotional and spiritual dysfunctions.

    Self-hypnosis, meditation, visualization in addition to a number of other cognitive techniques and exercises are the primary tools through which Synthesis occurs. The entire process can be described as S to the third, or S cubed™:

    Synthesize  – (knowledge and technique leveraging conscious and unconscious);

    Synergize  – (balancing and integrating physical, emotional and spiritual energies);

    Succeed  – change, grow, and evolve all the way to practical enlightenment; living life powerfully and virtually free of suffering.

    What is most important about Synthesis is this: It is simple and it works–profoundly and quickly!

    ANU Asafo -African Religion Part 2

    in Spirituality

    Asafo or warrior scholar is a term coming from the Akan people of Ghana that describes the type of person who uses their intellect and scholarship to protect and provide strategies for the advancement of their community.  “Asa” -war and “fo” - people means warrior people or practically warrior scholars. 


    This week in the Anu Asafo podcast, our host Ifawunmi recaps the basic tenets of African Spirituality. This includes the single supreme source from which everything emanates, the various traditions within the African Spirituality, distinguishing between worshipping and paying homage to the Ancestors and paying attention to lessons that is provided for personal development.


    He also speaks about the some of the major issues in the Pan- Afrakan community living in the United States and the solutions for them. 


    “The illusion of inclusion” or more plainly the illusion of integration fed by the spirit of Martin Luther King’s I have a dream speech is part of the major problem in the Afrakan community.  


    True to an Asafo fashion, Ifawunmi gives a clear strategy to deal with the illusion ---harness the economic spending power of the Pan-Afrakan community.

    As an Afrakan collective, men and women can synergize to protect and provide for the community.  

     Spiritually, Ifawunmi suggests using the power and wisdom that the highly cultivated Ancestors provide for the community.  

     As Asafo, spiritual training is another strategy that can be used.  Training can provide the balance and insight that one needs to be productive, supportive and provide stability for the community as well as provide the vitality to sustain their momentum.
