So rather than chasing the "American Dream" they are chasing the "American't Dream" by allowing their own dreams to be stifled by another person's dream. Everybody claims they want SUCCESS, but very few truly pursue it. Following on from the success (2 Million YouTube views) of "Why I Hate School But Love Education". The American't Dream addresses the distinctions between the principles of a job you make yourself do day in day out, and a career you love and are really passionate about. As time goes by, we become more preoccupied with surviving as opposed to living. Many people are content with having a stable routine job (which doesn't pose any risks to their way of living), rather than pursing their own creative ambitions. They frequently complain about detesting their job, but continuously put themselves in this unsatisfactory position, accepting this is all they're worth. Why do we spend our time struggling to work for other people, rather than build and achieve our own dreams? What's stopping us from finding out what our dreams are and chasing them? In a society where the 9--5 job routine has now become the epitome of success for the average person. Is the possibility of a promotion or generic work achievements really what spurs them on in life? Is it the fear of failure or the loss of stability, which leaves us trapped chasing this American't Dream?

Parents Are The Hardest People To Please||Spoken Word

The Latest Spoken Word Video From Suli Breaks [PRESS "CC" FOR SUBTITLES] PURCHASE "The Dormroom" on ITUNES: http://goo.gl/tKvEL JOIN MAILING LIST FOR EXCLUSIVE UPDATES: http://bit.ly/1pz1o7W SUBSCRIBE: http://goo.gl/6mf0j TWITTER: http://www.twitter.com/sulibreaks FACEBOOK: http://goo.gl/z9Lys WEBSITE:http://www.sulibreaks.com VIDEO PRODUCTION: www.wemakeyouthink.co.uk Since the beginning of time parents have heard the phrase "You don't understand me?" come out of their children's mouth. If not, have at least seen the thought process flash through their child's mind, exemplified by a "sigh" or a slamming of a door after an argument. Is this merely a part of growth, a rebellious phrase every child must go through to achieve maturity or is there an aspect that is overlooked? Taken from the ITunes versions of his EP "The Dormroom" Suli Breaks addresses the issue of the misunderstanding that exists between Parents and their children. In "Parents are the hardest people to please", he touches on his experiences as a young adult attempting to purse his success, and the negativity that he and so many other experience from their parents as a result of this. He comments on the borderline hypocritical attitude that it's sometimes adopted that does not allow a child to flourish outside of the constraints of the society which their parents have subjected them to. He states that "I don't believe that one party is always wrong and the other always right. I believe it's alternates, hence the need for there to be an understanding between parents and their children and acknowledge that they both want the best for each other" Much like crowd favorite on the downloadable version of the EP on his website "The Fountain Of Youth" Suli Breaks is calling for all parents to acknowledge that they can learn just as much from their children as their children can learn from them, and visa versa. Will be releasing these more consistently on either a Thursday or Sunday every week as part of my "LECTURES" series, while I'm attempting to finish my latest album. Enjoy!

Suli Breaks - Why I Hate School But Love Education [Official Spoken Word Video]

Get tickets to my LIVE SHOW at THE ROCK TOWER [LONDON] on 25th August: here: https://goo.gl/5iEGUW The Latest Spoken Word Video from Suli Breaks.

But what is the value of mainstream schooling? Why is it that some of the most high profile and successful figures within the Western world openly admit to never having completed any form of higher learning? Paying homage to Jefferson Bethke's "Why I Hate Religion but Love Jesus", a piece that received 22 million views in the space of a week, I address a number of these issues in my offering "Why I Hate School, but Love Education". With scores of school leavers wanting to further their education with no guarantee of their dream job at the end of it, we should ask ourselves whether qualifications still hold the same value now as they did in previous years? Does success in the school system correlate to success in life? Or is the school system simply geared towards fact retention and regurgitation? What is true education? @sulibreaks universityofsulibreaks.tumblr.com Director: @KevinNgongo www.youtube.com/kevinngongo Graphics: www.mikegallardodesigns.com Music: Sunshine: Surface Of The Sun - John Murphy - Adagio in D Minor Check my next video "The American'T Dream": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzcxOl4b7IA Contact: [email protected] VIDEOGRAPHER INFO: Email: [email protected] Twitter: www.twitter.com/KevinNgongo Facebook: www.Facebook.com/KevinNgongo Will be releasing these more consistently on either a Thursday or Sunday every week as part of my "LECTURES" series, while I'm attempting to finish my latest album.

I Will Not Let An Exam Result Decide My Fate - Suli Breaks,Vanity Fair,2009 "I Will Not Let An Exam Result Decide My Fate" picks up on the education topic but takes a different stance and angle from "Why I Hate School But Love Education". This poem talks about how we have been made to think about how education and getting university degrees can give us opportunities to have a better chance in making our dream careers a reality. It also touches on how as individuals we are judged and tested by how well we perform on exams, but not all people perform well in exams so why are they made out to feel like they're dumb? The inconsistencies of the education system are really peeled open to reveal a deep problem that needs to be addressed and how society's needs have changed to make this even more apparent. When it boils down to it, why are we misled into thinking that education is the only way forward for successful means in our work and career lives? We need to open our minds and educate ourselves that exam results aren't the barometer of success and that we can't let them decide our fate. We are in charge of our own destinies!

Suli Breaks - Anisah's Song
 
05:04
The tension following the Paris attacks has created an extreme sense of Islamophobia in Europe. Today, it was reported that there has been 115 Islamphobia attacks in the week. Most victims of the UK hate crimes were Muslim girls and women aged from 14 to 45 in traditional Islamic dress. I couldn't think of a more poignant time to release this video. Listen guys, I know what everyone wants to hear and how they want it to be packaged. But I have been around the world and back over the last two years. I have seen the world is not all bright colours, and smiley vlog faces. Sometimes we learn from its harshness and bitterness, so rather than create art, which people WANT to hear I have focused on what they NEED to hear. As to the nature of the video it is not pro-religion/pro Islamic, I have no interest to promote or encourage any religious doctrines. Anisah's Song is ANTI-HATE. This story is not to promote any agenda, it is to highlight that on a daily basis people are persecuted not only for what they believe, but being who they choose to be. Islamophobia is just one example, the persecution of innocents due to their race is another, and there are many more examples. Hate Crime is wrong and as long as we live in a world that allows this, none of us will ever be free/safe. After the video release is settled, we hope to release "Anisah’s song" as a single, to which a portion of the proceeds will be donated to organisations helping victims of violent hate crime.

Suli Breaks - Message To All Ladies....(#HesNot)
 
04:00
This one is a message to all the ladies out there who are in an "it's complicated" relationship status. PURCHASE SULI'S WORK ON ITUNES: http://goo.gl/ZhqVl SUBSCRIBE: http://goo.gl/6mf0j TWITTER: http://www.twitter.com/sulibreaks FACEBOOK: http://goo.gl/z9Lys WEBSITE:http://www.sulibreaks.com Just a quick "seminar" University of Suli Breaks style. Spoken Word piece entitled: He's Not He's not your boyfriend He's not "not sure about a relationship atm" And that girl, She is not just a friend And he was not "busy" last weekend He is not still hurt after his last relationship went bad, He not unsure about whether it's time to meet his parents, Neither does he not want u to put photos of him on Facebook because coz his appearance, N No he's not on the train experiencing interference, And he's has not just left his house, Or neither is he just down the road, or 5 minutes away, And his mum didn't ask him to do something last minute the reason he's late And what's on his mind, He will not tell you later And that girl that he told you is not his type, Well she is And he does no y she keeps calling him at late hours of the night He doesn't text back just to be polite. And that hair you found all over the flat, His clothes n his slacks Is not his sisters? He doesn't even have a sister Have you seen his sister? And I'm sure u would have noticed by now that has at least 8 numbers saved under "Mum" in his phonebook. Don't believe me then go look, Either his mum is a phone crook Keeps forgetting shit like that chick from the notebook ......Or she's an octopus? I was having an argument with a girl on twitter, Regarding whether a guy can love a some and still cheat, She said yes, coz with men it is a self control issue, this is something I believe Immediately I stopped her like "See" This is exactly y all men cheat Coz women all themselves to be so naive, Here I am tried showing her behind the game But she was so unwilling to change her mind frame It's like the matrix I'm offering her the red pill, Ironically on twitter so it shouldn't be hard to follow But she will continue to take the red one coz it's easier to swallow. How many times does he have to cheat, For you to realize it's not a game no more All men will cheat if all women allow them to, Some men will cheat if some women allow them to, No men would cheat, if no woman allow them to It's deep it is Coz that just not the responsibility of the women he's with but also the woman he's cheating with. How many times have you heard this: "We're not in a relationship, but he's leaving his girlfriend soon" "He's only still with her because of the kids" "What girl?? Huh??? Eh?" So maybe next time you lot decide to rally as a gender Maybe you should but that somewhere on the agenda So He's NOT,the reason you broke up, And it's about time some of you ladies stopped dreaming and woke up Please watch,share and sub.

Suli Breaks - The Graveyard
 
03:27
I see dead people. Men walking into offices to sit in coffins. People handed death certificates disguised as a salaries my peers working 9–5 earning nowhere near enough to survive  so it’s far from ironic that my bredrin said me that at nights after work she sleeps like a corpse  sometimes it feels like my city is a graveyard sometimes I feel like the ghost whisperer sometimes I feel I’m just watching re-runs of the Michael Jackson Thriller video  because everybody is dancing and singing like they are alive but it doesn’t take a genius to see that they are rotting on the inside it’s easy to say they gave up on life Because if your just a victim of a system that’s pulling the trigger is it still suicide? so early in our lives were forced into uniforms which strip us of our identity stand in firing lines outside classrooms designed to kill everything unique about us they did say that good die young  Abraham is only man I ever knew who was willing to stand at the altar and sacrifice his happiness for someone else  and even he hesitated even God agreed that it wasn’t worth it Let me ask you a question have you ever played spot the difference between living and existing  what does unhappiness taste like  and do you try and brush it out your mouth every night before you go to sleep and every morning before you head out Monday to Friday  And does it leave a bitter taste in your mouth on Sunday evenings  Sometimes making that bread can be a recipe for disaster  When was the last time you fed your soul And didn’t your parents teach you to always finish your plate I think we can all agree that slavery is still alive, and we are just concealing it  because maybe it’s easier to admit to defeat the truth were afraid to admit to ourselves  so instead we carry on digging our own graves chasing for promotions we don’t really want to hang around necks like medals  but instead they hang around our necks like nooses attached to glass ceilings  and most don’t even have the courage to jump so instead remain on an office chair in purgatory  not living or dying, just surviving. just surviving  just getting-bying  I sit at the edge of this cemetery using my words like flowers  To mourn the ones we have lost. but sometimes I feel like flowers aren’t enough  or is it that there are just too many graves.

Suli Breaks - Adulthood
 
03:07
I was stripped of my childhood, At the age of 16 I walked naked in manhood my parents were Rolling Stones no they were never in a rock band or on the cover of a magazine it's just that they never hung around enough to gather any moss trips back and forth to Africa, in search of better life for us always made me feel like the one we had wasn't good enough so me and my sisters harvested ourselves trying to see the fruits of my labour hanging from my family tree but you see it's hard to grow trees in London City My the age of 17, I knew that walking a certain way would have consequences If my pants hang too high around my waist, and my trainers were slyly out of date I might aswell have been walking with a target painted on my back. You learn to do adult shit real quick like you learn add base in your voice when asked provocative questions. You learn to hold a man's gaze just long enough to prevent him from calling you a "pussyhole" You learn to read maps, because if you ended up in the wrong postcode it could be a wrap. You learn that death doesn't have an age limit. You learn that guns are only cool on playstation or terminator movies. You learn that people can be cruel. You learn what rent is, and how your parents mood changes when it's due. You learn how the system deliberately chooses to forget about you. You learn, that you went to school for 18 years thinking you learnt so much, but you didn't really learn a thing. The only thing you learnt is how to stop being a child. Because, the adult world isn't designed for us to dream, not designed for us to only feel love It's a world where a smile is frowned upon laughter is suspicious and honesty is betrayal. Is Childhood betrayal? It is naive enough to make you believe, that all that make believe is real? From time to time, I had conversations with my inner child, he is always smiling, his row of glistening teeth a bridge to a happiness I sometimes forget he is always dancing, even though his moves are outdated and his body far from graceful. he mocks me "I may be weak, but atleast I was never afraid" If being a man means being afraid to love afraid to trust afraid to continue running, chasing those realities we formed, that you one day decided were better called "dreams" Look at you, your too afraid to even be yourself Tell me who is really the immature one? If you let them take me away from you, all you have left, is everything they gave to you to letting them take me away from you is difference between the profit a man who gains the world at the price of his soul. But if you so desperately want to be accepted, if you so desperately want to be an adult, go! I know you will come back you will come back I just dn't know if I'll still be here waiting when you do.

Dear Social Media.. (Dear Fat People Response)
 
03:45
Get tickets to my LIVE SHOW at THE ROCK TOWER [LONDON] on 25th August: here: https://goo.gl/5iEGUW Inspired by the "Dear Fat People" responses. I wrote an open letter to social media through SPOKEN WORD. [Subtitles Available] We often blame technology for a lot of the problems faced in society, such as cyber bullying, vanity, insecurity. However I like to argue that the fault lies in the mentality that people adopt when they are using technology. So rather than addressing individuals I decided to address social media as an entire entity with a collective identity. I hope looking at it from this perspective, people who adopt negative personas when using social media, will acknowledge the implications their actions may have on the people on "the other side of the screen". Ultimately if the technology is stripped away, we are still mere humans beings with feelings. Do you communicate with someone online, the same say you do offline?

Suli Breaks - "Rudebwoys Don't Fall In Love"  (a poem about the fear of commitment)
 
03:12
A poem about the fear of commitment. [LYRICS BELOW] Growing up I was became to accustomed the idea that falling in love can make you weak. It’s something that has stuck with me till this day, and at times it makes me question myself. I think this fear is the reason why many guys are afraid to commit to women they care about. *LYRICS* (excuse my spelling mistakes an typos, I write on my phone, blame autocorrect). From the moment she walked in I was moving like a low paid extra in the walking dead Because she had me acting like a zombie. Is this what they meant when they said if looks could kill? Because her eyes were a dark shade of suicide. My first thought was that I need her “cell” number. Since either I was fellow prisoner in her world Or she was a serial killer that just skipped bail for killing many other niggas like me. Because those eyes were concealed weapons. I guess no one ever today her that “Black Lives Matter”. If murder is what she wrote Then I was bookworm, And I was even willing to pay for Amazon extra to get that shit one day earlier. You see I had met many girls like her, but then again I had never met any girls like her. If girls are made from sugar and spice and everything nice, She was made from sugar, spice and everything twice. But my boy once got stung by a bad B*itch, so I know you can have an allergic reaction to love. So was every text message sent "Yo" The opening line to a suicide note? Was I walking down the aisle Or the green mile? Was I reading my vows or my eulogy? Was it Man up or man down? Rudeboys don't fall in love… But sometimes, we forget to tie our shoe lace And end up tripping into it. Maybe that's why as kids it was always easier for us to wear velcros. Of course we have hearts we aren’t scarecrows, But sometimes were scared though. When u come from a place where, You seen gunshots and cumshots, You learn to think twice about who you put your trust in. So sometimes I look at my wife I wonder if I was looking at my assassin, undercover disguised as heaven. Are we both ticking time bombs just waiting to happen? Like Mr and Mrs Smith, get her before she gets me. Like should I resurrect the pimp in me, So just in case she ever decide to shoot, he can take the bullet for me! Since I got that viral disease, And it seems these hoes don't mind being infected. So their sliding into my DMs like I'm a sales assistant at Doctor Martins. And it makes me realise that love is like heaven We all want to believe it exists But very few of us are willing to die to prove that it actually does. Is that why were we afraid to commit to the sacrifices required to get there? And since am still breathing, am I one of the lucky ones? Rudedoys don't fall in love. Was that's all lie? Or is this just survivors guilt? Filmed and edited by @CircleChannel Performed at @vocalsandverses Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/officialsuli...

Suli Breaks - Adulthood [AUDIO]
 
03:00
A poem about the harsh realities of adulthood. Spotify: https://play.spotify.com/album/2VZyeQFyn9mIS8vNcSL7lk LYRICS: I was stripped of my childhood, At the age of 16 I walked naked in manhood my parents were Rolling Stones no they were never in a rock band or on the cover of a magazine it's just that they never hung around enough to gather any moss trips back and forth to Africa, in search of better life for us always made me feel like the one we had wasn't good enough so me and my sisters harvested ourselves trying to see the fruits of my labour hanging from my family tree but you see it's hard to grow trees in London City My the age of 17, I knew that walking a certain way would have consequences If my pants hang too high around my waist, and my trainers were slyly out of date I might aswell have been walking with a target painted on my back. You learn to do adult shit real quick like you learn add base in your voice when asked provocative questions. You learn to hold a man's gaze just long enough to prevent him from calling you a "pussyhole" You learn to read maps, because if you ended up in the wrong postcode it could be a wrap. You learn that death doesn't have an age limit. You learn that guns are only cool on playstation or terminator movies. You learn that people can be cruel. You learn what rent is, and how your parents mood changes when it's due. You learn how the system deliberately chooses to forget about you. You learn, that you went to school for 18 years thinking you learnt so much, but you didn't really learn a thing. The only thing you learnt is how to stop being a child. Because, the adult world isn't designed for us to dream, not designed for us to only feel love It's a world where a smile is frowned upon laughter is suspicious and honesty is betrayal. Is Childhood betrayal? It is naive enough to make you believe, that all that make believe is real? From time to time, I had conversations with my inner child, he is always smiling, his row of glistening teeth a bridge to a happiness I sometimes forget he is always dancing, even though his moves are outdated and his body far from graceful. he mocks me "I may be weak, but atleast I was never afraid" If being a man means being afraid to love afraid to trust afraid to continue running, chasing those realities we formed, that you one day decided were better called "dreams" Look at you, your too afraid to even be yourself Tell me who is really the immature one? If you let them take me away from you, all you have left, is everything they gave to you to letting them take me away from you is difference between the profit a man who gains the world at the price of his soul. But if you so desperately want to be accepted, if you so desperately want to be an adult, go! I know you will come back you will come back I just dn't know if I'll still be here waiting when you do.

Suli Breaks - Notes From Ewer Street
 
03:11
A poem about purpose and searching. Filmed and edited by @nathanmiller Produced by: https://soundcloud.com/freddywinter/freddy-winter-heaven Listen to "Notes From Ewer Street" on Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/sulibreaks/sets/notes-two Executive produced by: Ayo Wrote Lyrics: I’m still searching for the meaning of life because the Oxford dictionary definition betrayed me. Convinced me that life could be categorised into a series of sentences, maybe that works for prisoners, but I’ve always wanted to be free. Free like the skies and the sun, but if I'm a star, then I'm a falling one, Because I plan to make an impact. Because life can be confusing when one of your grandma dies, and your mum and her sister aren't speaking, so their their literally each sideeying each over the coffin. Love might aswell just be a 4 letter word on a doctors note that gets prescribed to those that are lonely, way too often. But when the medicine doesn't make you better, it makes you bitter! When a love doesn't make you better, it makes you bitter. She told me nothing lives in her heart anymore it's a Bando! Her last lover didn't even thank time to pack his stuff so his memories are littered all over her flaws. So give me an average chick over a bad bitch, Nah that's BS because my wife is fine as hell, n I got too much love for the coloured girls. And my cousin wants to be a Kardashian, that's cool as long as she acknowledges that not every guy is a Kanye West and that there is very minimal reality shown, in a reality show. Will she recognise the face in the mirror when the cameras are off? You try telling a confident 21 year old black woman that perfect doesn’t exist. That it's merely a figment of our exaggeration. Are we still chasing the same goals as we did when we were kids? Back then we made goalposts out of jumpers, stones and sticks and it was still lit now we shoot for the stars, never once taking time to admire them. Maybe life moves fast, One minute we were in the playpen, then on the playground to the play station to the playboys and the play house. But we hardly play now, well some of us play the lottery. My girls mum thinks one day she will win the lottery , how do I convince her that with 7 kids she's already won it 7 times. How can young parents seeing kids as a mistakes, not the negatively impact on how the kids will eventually see themselves. So we walk around believing that we were never meant to happen, Like our lives were a mistakes on a test that we were too high to take seriously Like our lives were a mistakes on a test that they failed I’m still searching for the familiarity of that red and white stripe, I’m still searching for Waldo, I’m still trying to find Nemo.. …am stil searching for the meaning of life or is life about searching for meaning.

Suli Breaks -  SENSITIVE | Official Spoken Word Video
 
03:51
From Brexit to Vegans to Trump to Sexism & Racism. Everybody has an opinion on these subjects, but what do you truly believe? There is a new trend of people getting offended by EVERYTHING they see online. This is a message for those SENSITIVE people. Warning‼ You might be offended!! #hibas - LIKE & COMMENT!! Lyrics: Everybody has an opinion a nowadays Why does everyone to get offended so easily nowadays As long, as you can quote "I have a dream... yours woke nowadays I remember when Yeezy first said it *sample* After taking a sample of the vegan chicken wings she was selling The woman at the stall said to me “It tastes like chick right” Wish I could have said what was really on my mind Thinking this woman probably hasn't tasted chicken in time, But instead, I felt inclined, no obliged to be polite Like “hmmm, yeahhh, its aiteee” But can you really blame her? It’s not her fault. I didn’t want to come across as a hater Or disrespectful to a complete stranger or the fact that every time I mention the word vegan I feel like I need to include a disclaimer like There is nothing wrong with vegan chicken, And I actually 1agree that it is a great choice for anyone serious about a healthier living and potentially extending their lifespan But 4 of them wings cost like £7.99 fam *sample* So 2018, you can comment on my IG to tell me looking good, and tap the image twice too But flip that around tell someone their good looking, they could say why she tryna sexualize you. And that’s how they interpret it, nobodies fault But type that shit incorrectly in 140 characters, and you’ve started a cult Turn that into, one misquote + a facebook post And people start doing alot Everybody is so sensitive because they want someone to listen Now I don’t mind people having an opinion, I just hate the fact that people don't have an opinion of their own Their just looking for a popular opinion to clone On socials, people will champion any cause, Because, they can talk, but when it comes to how many times you've acted there ain't no one’s counting There is so little accountability So there now actually pressure to put your money where your mouth is I log on my socials and everybody's re-acting, everybody active but none of them man are really activists Yeah, make jokes about politics and get your friends to share them But outside of these jokes, bruh you know it don’t really affect them How many memes do you think it takes to impeach a president? Brexit signs on my car door as evidence Every London resident assumed the "Leave" campaign was irrelevant Because they were so caught up in their own self-contained timelines Insta primetime, facebook algorithmic guidelines They forgot what really mattered That there was a whole country out here that obviously had different views And that you can’t fill a ballot box with bants, twitter rants. Basically, if in 2018 your not gonna let me make an inappropriate joke or speak my mind on something without you jumping on a secondhand bandwagon Then make sure it’s something you actually believe in If, not then I don’t care if you're offended.

I was reading the Willie lynch letter and something occurred to me For coloured girls This is a message to all my dark skinned sisters N I shouldn't even say that Coz we all black Dark skin light skin That's a mentality we developed way back I mean in a descriptive context it can be used as a term to differentiate between complexion But how the hell can u use it to tell my sister that she is anything but perfection But aside from that, that's the same mentality willie lynch installed in "how to break the nigga women and avoid slave insurrection" Pac said it best Blacker the berry the sweeter the trjuice" The darker the flesh the deeper the roots And I'm astonished by the Ignorance of these black kids Coz he said I me he dnt find dark skin girls attractive And I Said to him but your mother was dark skin And you got a majority of your features from her So what does that make you? N we the only ones who use that difference an excuse to remain detached But when other races look at us all they see is "black" Think about it have u ever described something as dark black or light black Like "I think I might wear my light black dress today" You eva see a white man say he dnt like pink skin white girls!!! When U look at her you should see is a queen About she's "quite nice for a dark skin girl" What the fuck u mean? Dnt your dare ever feel ashamed or insignificant Coz their opinions r insignificant Coz your magnificent The fact that it's isn't well that's a. "white lie" Sis be proud if your skin mirrors the complexion of the night Coz ain't that where man looks to the stars for the destination of his flight The your own black men may neglect u Or may not accept you But who can endure all the prejudice n still be beautiful except you Bro, makes her any less beautiful for you acknowledgement Is it coz they don't put her on the cover of cosmopolitan U prefer the models, that inject their lips with cologine So you want a light girl with black features But not to actually look like she has African orgin Bullshit When u create a human being then get back to me N you have No need for, Fake tan, botox, concealer Coz the lord blessed her naturally with all the things they buy from the factory N if they can say suli breaks is a racist But not on basis the faces Can u dictate where her place is Coz her features related To the greatest created Coz we came of the spaceship Brainwashed bythis matrix Concerned about natural Or lacewigs, but never once have we debated It's flipping outrageous Say SNM, coz FHM Ain't never had none of my sisters 10 ten in their rating and I know its persuasive And u've felt what disgrace is But dark skin girl Next Time you look in the mirror I just want you to see greatness Coz that's what you r And this isn't an attack Neither is it a defence Lighter or darker We all black and beautiful It's common sense Will be releasing these more consistently on either a Thursday or Sunday every week as part of my "LECTURES" series, while I'm attempting to finish my latest album.

We asked a group of 6-11 yr olds their views on BEAUTY and got some very surprising answers! We then combined the answers with my spoken word piece around the same subject. I came up with concept for "What Is Beauty" when a girl approached me after a performance and asked me if I had ever written anything on bullying. I told her I hadn't but the thought stayed with me. The video was created around the time the #Likeagirl campaign by ALWAYS came out. It's inspired by that idea. What I realised while filming this was that as young children we have confidence in our own beauty, at what point do we lose that? This is just a reminder to myself and others of that innocence which allows us to live life to the fullest. None of the young people involved saw the questions beforehand, and each person was filmed without hearing the other's answers.

Help me caption & translate this video! http://amara.org/en/videos/cpb8h8TdxArt/info/what-is-beauty/ Lyrics: What is beauty? Beauty is saying “Fuck You To Society” Because beauty is not perfect Neither is it shirtless Beuty is not putting the ball in the basket It’s Kobe Bryant shimming to the left, right, missing the target But then coming up court Taking the same shot from the same spot regardless Sexy is not beautiful But Beauty is sexy Beauty is not, reminding me of the sunshine in the morning Beauty is making me smile when it’s raining Beauty, apparently come from what you see inside a person’s soul But as humans what do we really see. Visions don’t allow us to see past the mass composition of tissue, water, fat muscle and bone. So some of the most “beautiful” people I have ever known End up alone? Because beauty is cheated on, abused, unappreciated, misunderstood Beauty is that bird in the hand, that was let go of for those two in the bush A lot of people ask me about haters and bullies Listening, hating is nothing new, Satan hating on Adam is the reason he convinced him into picking the forbidden fruit Bullies are losers, There’s always something you have that, they want Whether it’s intelligence, skill or confidence in being who you are, different from everyone else Find what that thing is, and make sure you get better at it, Coz that’s what’s gonna separate you from everyone else in this life That’s what makes you beautiful.

Suli Breaks - A City Called Home [Lyric Video]
 
05:28
Stream on Apple Music: https://goo.gl/sEV8FN Stream on Spotify: https://goo.gl/zkw41e Soundcloud: https://goo.gl/NGqvQY City Called Home Ft. AWrt, Shaé, Cari [Prod by. MikeMusiq] Lyric video by: @behookddigital Lyrics: Suli Breaks: Sometimes life smells like the summer but tastes like the winter Some days I wake early, just to listen to the sunrise. sumtimes the mornings sound like an instrument out of tune no matter how hard I try I can't seem to play it right they say you should put happiness at the top of my playlist but life is constantly on shuffle with no options to rewind, even when the feedback hurts your ears. my favourite place in the world is a city called home where sometimes I feel trapped in the cages of other people's opinions I just wanna grow old without ever having to grow up. is that too much to ask for? but Hakuna Mata doesn't seem to apply when the rent's due the best things in life are free but someone tell Baloo that the bare necessities cost money We were just poor kids with rich dreams dreams so expensive that our own parents couldn't afford to believe in them making us feel like they didn't believe is us. if you abort a dream, does that make you a murderer? I mean it was never a living dream anyway right, just a collection of ideas that were yet to form in consciousness right? We think,I'm too young to support this dream What if it took more than one of us to come up with this dream, How can you really expect me do it all by myself? funny, how that sounds so simliar to what she said. Can't regret the moments that make you even if they are the same moments that broke you. sometimes I wake just to listen to the sunrise sometimes the sound is so loud it makes me happy to be alive it sounds like a gospel choir singing the last hymn just before the Nigerian pastor wraps up the service that has already been running 3 hours over on a Sunday but reality must be an atheist coz news articles about bombs, and dead children on the other side of the world replaced red riding hood, and goldilocks as bed time stories. hearing government's breaking into other people's countries to steal porridge wolves disguised our grandma's clothing I say, what big mouths they have they say all the better to mislead you with. Do politicians sleep on pillows stitched together from the skin of other people's dead children while I wear trainers sewn together by some poor boy desperation and my wife wears hair is ripped from some innocent girls scalp. Who am I to point fingers, without noticing the other 4 pointing back at me. So I give my boy the latest Harry Potter novel and a key of weed coz his daughter needs to learn to read, plus she needs to eat. I still miss the first girl I had a crush on scrolling through her Instagram post by post watching her life turn out into everything she said it wouldn't we dnt get to play life, life hums a melody and all we get to do is listen all most get to do is sing along hoping we can write a few lyrics here and they're hoping we can stay in tune until our song ends AWrt: What's the point. Living isn't really living we are merely just getting by. Killing time like say death isn't promised in the end. What's the point. What is life. What is family. What is friends. Ok family I get. But friends, friendship. Something that could turn to nothing in a sec. We are all just delaying the inevitable. Pursuing happiness. Battling life's test. Though we all pass i guess. I mean We all die. We still laugh I guess we still cry. Because i got mandem that are blocked off in blocks cuz! Surrounded by bricks so they made a product of their environment where we live their aint no signing in no signing off We’d try our luck and grind till our time is up finding love was unheard of- murders every other week. Mothers weak sisters crying. They’ll drop to their knees because they’ll never hear their brother speak again And again, another bleeds. Pouring out. Because man was poor and out of pees So he’d take from another's mouth. Take from another mouth to eat. Well. Thats how it is living on the other side of green. Hell. Live by the gun probably die from the same thing. Thats what she said to me. I was only 16 when my boy died. Said live by the gun probably die from the same thing. Said live by the gun probably die from the gun. But mum. 21 deep in depression I’ve got a question. If this is a mid life crisis does that mean I’m going to die young. I don’t know whats wrong. All i know is not much is right. Thinking myself into this hole i don’t know, its like, This thing they call like it gets a lot sometimes. Im not going to commit suicide. Im black. We don’t do that. But it does hang in my mind. Check out my newest project #SLUMPOETRY Stream on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/09kYoO...

80/90s Babies - Suli Breaks
 
04:35
80/90s Baby spoken word. #universityofsulibreaks style Click link to go to quiz: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_Lg4HQuJL0 Answers to quiz: universityofsulibreaks.tumblr.com 80/90s Baby I'm a 80's baby Well 90's Slightly, precisely, But let the confusion there then end. Because u no my generation dnt beg friend. So give me Power Rangers over Ben 10 Give me the old, not the "new n improved" X-men N it's absurd, they had the nerve to make a 3D "Tin Tin" And that's no hating But "That's so Raven"?!?!!? Did I Miss da, picture? Nah darg, Give me Sister Sister That spinster Finster, and girls that know it all like clarissa And no way is Harry potter, badder than Sabrina. He lasted 7 books She did 7 seasons. Do the math And I understand why these kids now hang around late nights in park Coz they ain't seen enough episodes of Goosebumps or "Are you afraid of the dark?" I remember as soon as I could see that no longer the sun was up The fun was up, I ain't tryna get eaten by no giant fleshing eating rabbit. The death of 8am Saturday morning was tragic But for my generation they were a habit Coz I ain't tryna miss vr3 troopers,smurfs, duck tales, care bears and captain planet. Can u believe my lil cousin now wakes up around 12 o'clock And nowadays you kids got worry about thing Herpes In our day the worst thing u could catch was the Lurgis And it was all about the high top, borders and waves. Coz "In West Philadelphia is where we were born and raised And on the playground is where I spent most of my days" You knew what time it was when u heard "Segggaaa" Can u believe my lil cousin tried to get me to watch "Highs school musical" when I was baby sitting, when her parents were away, by myself, But luckily I heard tyres SCREECH As her parents got back at 7 pm ex-ZACK, Just before she could put the DVD in so u can say That I was "Saved by the bell". And I heard Yolo was the motto I said "What the Bumba?" Watch me run up on Drizzy with Timon and Pumba. I never thought id see the day, When Philly 3 was a throwback N I miss da man But back then picture that, Instagram *cough cough* I mean Kodak And all I'm doing is asking for our swagback Who started the Jordan's and the Snapbacks And I know the Yeezys are very rare and there many types, But what you know about the La gear and the La lights. That shit used to light up when u walk. And you guys ruined all our classics by turning them into a movie R.I.P Dragonballz R.I.P Garfield And you guys remember when the ice cream man would come rolling through the hood like the pied piper? N u remeber Who loves orange soda? And when most disputes could be settled by rock,paper,scissors(hand gestures) So my eighties/ nineties slightly precisely babies When u hear this I just want u to love it, And get that nostalgic feeling, get deep down in your stomach. Remember them days when £1.50 was you budget and a Pokemon was card was the only thing u would covet. So next time a young buck tries to school you on his IPad, say "My Bad". Take out your Alba Walkman, the one with only the forward button. Put in your Essentials RNB 90's anthems cassette, And say, Let me see where your minds at? I'll 50 bucks If you can figure out how to rewind that.

Suli Breaks - The Graveyard [AUDIO]
 
03:53
LYRICS: I see dead people men walking into offices to sit in coffins people handed a death certificates disguised as a salaries my peers working 9-5s earning nowhere near enough to survive it's far from ironic that my friend told me that at nights after work she sleeps like a corpse sometimes it feels like my city is a graveyard sometimes I feel like the ghost whisperer sometimes I feel I'm just watching re-runs of the Michael Jackson Thriller video everybody dancing and singing like they are alive but it doesn't take a genius to see that they are rotting on the inside it’s easy to say they gave up on life But if just a victim of a system that's pulling the trigger is it still sucide? so early in our lives were forced into uniforms which strip us of our identity stand in firing lines outside classrooms designed to kill everything unique about us they did say that good die young Abraham is only man I ever knew who was willing to stand at the altar and sacrifice his happiness for someelse and even he hesitated even God agreed that it wasn't worth it Let me ask you a question have you ever played spot the difference between living and existing what does unhappiness taste like and do u try brush it out your mouth every night before you go to sleep and every morning before u head out Monday to Friday And does it leave a bitter taste in your mouth on Sunday evenings. Sometimes making that bread is a recipe for disaster When was the last time you fed your soul? And didn’t your parents teach you to always finish your plate? I think we all know that slavery is still alive, and we are just concealing it coz maybe it's easier to admit to defeat the truth were afraid to admit to ourselves so instead we carry on digging our own graves waiting for promotions we don't really want, to hang around necks like medals but instead they hang around our necks like nooses attached to glass ceilings but most don't even have the courage to jump so instead remain on an office chair in purgatory not living or dying, just surviving. just surviving just getting-bying I sit at the edge of this cemetery using my words like flowers To mourn the ones we have lost. but sometimes I feel like flowers aren't enough or is it that there are just too many graves.
