Ruther Glen, VA - ‘Somewhere Other Than Here’ marks quite an impressive run for Christian Hip Hop veteran artist Pacaso Ramirez. Coming a year after his last album ‘Sparxx Gotta Fly’, the new 9-song album is project number 17 since 2005 for the Blood Related Entertainment emcee.

‘Somewhere Other Than Here’ also includes a first in Ramirez’s impressive resume. The album is being dropped in collaboration with FiveTwenty Presents, a division of FiveTwenty Collective, that is looking to showcase well-deserving talent within the independent CHH space. 


Ramirez decided to take the listener on a journey to the middle of nowhere, seeking solace and inviting those who tune in to go along with him.

You Are Not A Goon Part 1

I know I'll get called a hata’. But the truth is, this is not hate. It’s love. I could not tell you the truth if I didn't love you! The truth is, it’s the enemy's goal to keep you dumb, blind, and in bondage. Then he can control you. So he uses B.E.T, movies, and music to make you think that if you read books and try to better yourself you’re a “lame” or you’re trying to be white. That’s a lie! The enemy wants you to think if you call yourself a nigga, and the baddest b****, you’re keeping it real. That's a lie. You are what you think you are. Keep calling yourself these terms that were created and used to disrespect you, and you will be exactly what you say you are. A b**** is a female dog, look it up. That’s a nasty filthy animal. Is that what you are? Where is the honor in that? Where is the honor in being a Goon? And you can not take words that were created to degrade you and use them to mean something good. That’s a lie from the pit and you need to send that lie back to the pit where it belongs. You need to understand you are disrespecting yourself by calling yourself out your name! When you disrespect the creation, you disrespect the creator. Know who you are and what you are. You are YAH’s masterpiece! You are the workmanship of Elohim7936083058?profile=original

THINGS we found along the way

A Black Lyft passenger was pinned to the ground and beaten by sheriff’s deputies on Friday, Sept. 11, after he questioned why he should be required to show his ID following a traffic stop in the Atlanta suburb of Clayton County, Georgia. The Clayton County Sheriff’s Office has launched an investigation into the incident after video footage circulated on social media.

In a Friday Instagram post, user _passionlove95 said her cousin was tackled by the deputies after the Lyft ride they were in was pulled over because the car’s taillight was out. The man in the video, Roderick Walker, his girlfriend Janita Walker, their two children ages five months and five years, and Walker’s cousin, were passengers in the Lyft vehicle at the time.

The top Apple news stories of the past week:

  • Hardware launch scheduled for September 15: This coming Tuesday, Apple will hold a hardware launch event. The company sent out press invites earlier this week. As with the company’s big event earlier this year, the launch won’t have members of the press in physical attendance.
  • Don’t expect iPhones next week, though: It is highly unlikely that Apple will launch any iPhones at next week’s event. Instead, we expect some new iPads, the sixth-edition of the Apple Watch, and possibly Apple AirTags — the company’s answer to Tile trackers. Devices in the iPhone 12 lineup will likely launch in October.
  • Only some iPhones might launch whenever they land: There are multiple rumors floating around that Apple doesn’t plan to launch the entire iPhone 12 lineup in October (or whenever it decides to hold its event). Instead, rumors suggest Apple could launch the iPhone 12 Max and iPhone 12 Pro first, and then launch the iPhone 12 (the smallest/cheapest variant) and the iPhone 12 Pro Max at a later date. Or, it’s also possible that Apple will announce all four phones but delay the on-sale dates of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max Pro. Either way, it’s a safe bet that you won’t see all iPhones in stores at once, at least at the beginning.
  • iPhone mass production hasn’t even started, allegedly: According to Nikkei Asian Review, the iPhone 12 lineup isn’t even cooking yet as far as manufacturing goes. Nikkei claims that the iPhone 12 series won’t enter mass production until the end of this month. AirTags, however, are likely ready to go (which is why we expect them to launch next week).
  • Apple wins patent for in-display Touch ID: There’s yet another rumor to suggest that Apple could be working on phones with in-display fingerprint sensors. Obviously, this is something Android users have had for years now, but Apple went all-in on Face ID instead (that didn’t work out so well with the pandemic and all). According to the patent filing, Apple’s version of the sensor could cover much of the display, which would be a big difference between it and Android counterparts.
  • Apple now has its own face mask: A report from Bloomberg shows how Apple has created its own face mask to help protect its corporate and retail employees from the spread of COVID-19. All in all, the mask looks like every other mask, but it’s called Apple Face Mask, which makes it better.

Have a great week folks.
