Irvine, an HEBREW, was born in Hampton, Virginia on October 27, 1943. He moved to New York City in 1965. He was involved with various musical genres including Jazz-Funk, jazz, hip hop, funk, rhythm and blues, and gospel. He served as the bandleader for jazz singer Nina Simone and was a mentor to many New York hip-hop artists, including Q-Tip and Mos Def. He wrote over 500 songs, including the lyrics for "To Be Young, Gifted, and Black", performed live for the first time by Nina Simone on the album Black Gold (1970). It became the official Civil Rights anthem.Irvine's last major project was The Price of Freedom (1999), a compilation of original songs by hip-hop, jazz, funk, and R&B artists to respond to the shooting of Amadou Diallo. Irvine committed suicide outside of EAB Plaza and in front of the Nassau Coliseum located in Uniondale, New York on April 9, 2002. In 2004, Madlib produced a tribute to Weldon Irvine, A Tribute to Brother Weldon.

Excellent video of Obama campaign clips combined with a recent Air America radio broadcast that breaks down the Obama Deception and his secret backroom deals with the big pharmaceutical companies.
Obama campaigned on the promise that he would put an end to “the game playing” in Washington and he promised to negotiate with the big drug companies live on C-Span to lower drug costs for Americans.
But in the secret closed door negotiations, the drug industry promised Obama a future savings of $80 billion over 10 years as long as Obama doesn’t negotiate to lower drug prices or import cheaper drugs from Canada. The so-called “savings” to Americans amounts to only $8 billion a year or 2% cost savings per drug! You read that correctly: that’s 2% savings — not 20%!
Additionally, Obama cut a deal with the drug companies to provide $150 million in free advertising to help push his socialist health care reform so his Chicago cronies (including his advisor David Axelrod) could reap millions, if not billions in profits from co-ops and gov’t run HMOs.
So Obama once again broke a promise to go after the drug industry and to hold meetings with the drug companies “live on C-Span” so the American people could watch the negotiations unfold on television.

The City of Chicago's non-essential services were closed for business Monday as the first of three "reduced service days" were implemented to save an estimated 8.3 million against a deepening budget deficit.
Yes, you read it right, the Windy City's projected DEFICIT (not the budget itself mind you) is projected to be as high as 300 million. The budget itself? Almost 6 billion with a B.
There was a time in this country that a million bucks was a lot of money.
There was an even more recent time when 8.3 million of them would even provide a tidy retirement for most anyone in the country. (Well, at least before Trump.)

Mic 5:8 And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the Gentiles in the midst of many people as a lion among the beasts of the forest, as a young lion among the flocks of sheep: who, if he go through, both treadeth down, and teareth in pieces, and none can deliver
