Arguing, Family, and Friends: Rap Pioneer Who Popularized Term 'Hip Hop,' Lovebug Starski Dies At 57 @balleralert Rap Pioneer Lovebug Starski, Who Popularized The Term ‘Hip Hop,’ Dies At 57 - blogged by @lanaladonna ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Kevin Smith, a DJ from the Bronx, and better known as LovebugStarski who coined the term “hip-hop,” unfortunately passed yesterday at age 57. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ RollingStone reports his death was caused by a heart attack he had in Las Vegas, where he recently relocated. Starski’s daughter, Tiffany Smith, confirmed the cause of death. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Starski was among a core group of DJ pioneers that include DJKoolHerc, AfrikaBambaataa, GrandmasterFlash and GrandWizardTheodore. Rolling Stone says they all helped shape hip-hop’s parameters in the days before recorded rap in the 1970s. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ DJ Grandmaster Flash told rolling stone what made Starski so different from the rest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "What set him apart was he was able to DJ and talk on the mic and do both at the same time, and he was really really good at this," explained Flash. “He played an extremely important role in the development of this. We all do it now, talk on the mic and DJ same time, but in the hip-hop world, Starski was probably the first to handle it." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Some may argue that Keith “Cowboy” Wiggins of Grandmaster Flash and the FuriousFive introduced the word “hip-hop,” but Smith accepted credit for the term in an interview with Amoeba Music in 2017. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "That was one of my rhymes when I would get stuck for words and I used to go 'hip, hop, the hip, the hip, hip the hopping," he said. "You know it was just a nursery rhyme that coincided with the music, and that's the God's honest truth." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Condolences are sent to Smith’s family and friends. Salute to all “hip-hop” icons everywhere.

Goals, Life, and Love: IF YOU BELIEVE, YOU WILL. IF YOU DON'T, YOU WON'T. In any given day, our subconscious mind processes around 60,000 thoughts. It’s those same thoughts that are pushing us towards whatever it is that we desire while at the same time bringing us closer to the things that we fear. How can we achieve anything we want when our minds are almost working against us? 🤔 The truth of the matter is, as we already know it deep down inside, we get whatever it is that we focus on in life. When we focus on negative thoughts such as fear, anger, and resentment, we get more of the same. In fact, we live in a constant state of lack, wondering why we can never achieve the things we believe we want to achieve so badly in life. However, when we live an abundant life, steeped in positivity, moving away from fear, anger, and resentment, and moving towards love, growth, contribution, and forgiveness, we get more of the same. Like attracts like. It’s rather simple and straightforward. But, we don’t often notice it at a micro level. We tend to look at things on a grander scale, not really realizing what’s going on in the here-and-now. - 👇So, if you want to achieve those goals that you set for yourself, live an abundant life, and grow, there are 3 simple rules for achieving anything you want in life: ✔️Know what you want and why you want it. ✔️Create and follow a massive action plan. ✔️Track and analyze your results, making changes along the way. - You’re welcome! 😉 - success achieve mindset millionairementor
