Queen Jo – Hotel Rwanda
Queen Jo’s single “Hotel Rwanda” from the Cleopatra’s Rapture EP is a about a moment spent in a artist house held in a gentrified neighborhood in North Philadelphia. At a time where neighborhood tensions were high, this house (Hotel Rwanda) was a safe haven for foreign artists and neighborhood artists could get together and create at all hours of the night without dealing with the rest of the world. In this place, anyone could find love! Directed and shot by Bryan Green, and heavily inspired by the Busta Rhymes video, “Hands Where My Eyes Can See”, Hotel Rwanda was shot on a 6D camera with a fish eye lens!

I came to this sweet realization. It’s possible to turn an object into an event that you want to happen. If you buy something related to the event you choose to manifest, it can become what I call a “token of intent”.
It’s possible too, that you may not have to but this item. Maybe the “token” can come from a loved one that decide you deserve it. In my own experience, I’ve only bought things(and not expensive at all), but the key is the relation.
What makes it alchemy is the exchange of the money or the energy of gratitude(from that love one), it makes a sort of “pact”, or promise. That energy goes into the token.
It’s also important to take the steps to drive that energy from that token of intent, to that desired event. Didn’t mean for that to rhyme, but hell, so be it,
i guess you care for an example, I gotchu b. I been trying to get a one bedroom apartment for a month. I found the one that I needed and I wasn’t taking no for an answer.
While I was online trying to see how much a lil flat screen tv cost, I decided it wasn’t in the budget, cool. Then I saw the “similar items” pane and they had mini projectors for less than half the price!
I copped it immediately and made it my token of intent. Mind you, the odds were very very very much against me from the start. But it didn’t matter, I took the steps to get this crib.
Filled out the app, grabbed the money orders for my deposit, turned it in, waited for approval, signed the lease, grabbed the keys and moved in, now here we are.
Now would you believe ya boy if he said he was here sitting next to that projector right damn now?
Three people in particular caught my attention here in the city, Chill moody, Mista Heard and DaKid Nice. Three talented young men taking Philly by storm.
