My Thoughts On The Passing Of The Great Dr. Maya Angelou At 86.

ARTICLE FROM huffingtonpost.com (Full story click here)

MAYA-ANGELOU-large300I do not throw around the word great to much. Micheal Jordan was great. The late King Of Pop Micheal Jackson was great. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was great. Muhammad Ali was great. The late Whitney Houston was great. N.W.A was great. Former guest on “Music Inner City TV” Big Daddy Kane is great. Larry Bird was great. So many you can call great.

But a TRUE great person left us at the age of 86, Dr. Maya Angelou. When ever I saw a interview with her on TV I sat and listened. Because when she talked it was like going to school because I always learned something from this great African American lady.

Yes I was a little bothered when she came out and supported Hillary Clinton in 2008 instead of then Sen. Barack Obama. The first African American who had a chance to be President.

But she had her own reason. As did another great person “Magic” Johnson and another great businessman, Bob Johnson. But that did not stop me from having profound respect for Dr. Angelou. Her good friend and former guest on “M.I.C-TV” Oprah was not happy too because Ms. O was a huge supporter of Sen. Obama.

But anyway Dr. Maya Angelou was a towering force for African Americans. Just a flat out dynamic legendary person. A great great poet, a actor, a writer and much more. Maya would write a poem and read it and it will leave you crying. Just the way she delivered the poem. So emotional and so deep. So much thought put into it.

The world is a much better place because of the GREAT Dr. Angelou. That is for sure. RIP Dr. Angelou. We all love you.  By the way I have to leave you with this. HEY YOUNG PEOPLE IF YOU HAVE NOT HEARD OF THIS GREAT PERSON…READ AND LEARN ABOUT THE GREAT DR. MAYA ANGELOU.  Gordon Curvey

Music Inner City News Magazine Bio: T.I.

BIO FROM wikipedia.com (Full bio click here)

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

(Listen to “Music Inner City Internet Radio”  Classic soul, new and recent music, interviews, and more. Click the “Ustream Live” link above. It is 24/7!)

T.I. has had a very very interesting life in twenty or so years on earth. Jail terms, millions of cd’s sold, acting in movies and more.

No one can deny this cat has talent behind the mic and in front of the camera as a actor. T.I. can act. Unlike other rappers, he has a long career ahead of him as a entertainer. If he can stay out of trouble. The question is, can he?

I think T.I. can do wonders in going into inner city schools and talking to the youth about staying in school and staying away from guns and violence etc. Of course he has done a lot of that since his release from jail for weapons charges. He can be a tremendous role model. And you know what? What I read, he is trying to be just that. A role model kids can look up to. That is great!

Congrats to T.I. and his lady Tiny who recently tied the knot. I am happy for Tiny and T.I. By watching Tiny’s reality program, it seems she is a great lady and a great mom.

Great things are ahead for T.I. in music and in Hollywood. Let’s hope he stays out of trouble. I think he will do it. He has to many kids who are looking up to him as a role model.

Please say a prayer for me as I enter Swedish Hospital here in Seattle (Aug 4th) for lung cancer surgery. For which I am very nervous but I have to have it done.

This is a wake up call for me. I have never spent time in a hospital. I hope this operation will have me back to good health. I have to many things to do. And thanks everyone for your prayers ad concern.      Gordon Curvey/Music Inner City
