President Kennedy

Today is the 47th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy. When I first got into this rap/music game JFK was the name I decided to use for myself. The reason I did this is because I was always upset about the circumstances and conspiracies surrounding the assassination. While I no longer use the JFK alias I still have strong feelings about what happened.

My feeling was and still is that the public world really lost much of our mental freedom on that day. There is no way that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone.

I remember how my Grandmother would talk of The Kennedys as if there was some magical air of perfection surrounding them. She had seen John and Jackie at different gatherings in the Boston area and had a clear admiration for how they carried themselves. American Royalty.

When I worked as a bank teller I had the pleasure of having Harrison Livingstone as one of my customers. I learned through conversation that he was the author of some of the most popular JFK assassination conspiracy novels out there. He was a bit of an eccentric so we hit it off. He gave me copies of his books and autographed them for me. He told me that young people don't usually care about JFK and he felt that I could help him maintain the search for truth.

Now that current generations have our own JFK assassination in 9/11, it seems as if the truth about what happened will forever be buried in a pile of bullshit on the grassy knoll.

If you are ever in Massachusetts, I highly suggest that you check out the JFK museum and learn more about what type of man he was. I am not going to spend time talking about his accomplishments--look it up.

What I will do is share with you this song I made years ago. WWAP member Random Ran made the beat and its actually one of our earliest collaborations. In honor of the real JFK here is a free download of JFK (come on). This is off my first solo cd Live From Camelot...Enjoy and send a good thought out into the universe today for our fallen president. At the very least you will see how much our skills have improved since the early days...and oh yeah, Screw you Illuminati!
