healthy anger with Scar Lip
using rap to learn to say NO!
Swizz Beats said in an interview, he believes DMX (RIP) sent Scar Lip to him.
After listening to This Is New York on repeat these past few days, I’ve noticed my NO getting stronger.
There was such a resonance in New York and really globally with DMX’s music because he tapped into an archetype that is within all of us - the warrior.
Ancestrally, this is the embodiment of being ready to go to war for the village, for the families.
We don’t see this anymore in Black men (I hope to change this).
Culturally, it’s very interesting to me to see artists like Scar Lip and Lola Brooke really gain influence and attention in a short amount of time.
What I believe we are seeing is Black women embodying their inner warrior.
Women really have had enough of our shit 😬
In the words from Scar Lip, you can really hear her anger and to me it’s really powerful boundary setting.
A lot of my own depression and anxiety has come from suppressed anger (me & a fellow King Kyle go deep on this in our convo).
If you can tap in the capacity to embody Scar Lip’s expression, you can feel in your body your strength and power.
When you take a deep breath in after going there in safe container for yourself, your body will register that you are safe.
You may even feel tingling sensations which is the cells and muscle tissue releasing the trauma. Shame is being released and your releasing generational pain.
It’s pretty wild what the body can do!
Anger is a tender topic for many and a scary one. I get it and the opportunity is to learn to work with anger. It’s an empath’s secret weapon.
When you learn to work with anger you can use it for creativity.
To really create the life you want for yourself.
We only got one shot at this thing.
The scary part is relationships may fade away that no longer serve you. If people have an issue with your heart tell them to go to PA WITH THAT SHIT!
