Intifada. Vamos. Baquiné pal Comandante.
Un tema que Intifada de Puerto Rico le escribe y le canta al pueblo venezolano y bolivariano. Sobre la vida y la muerte del comandante Chávez. Grabado en el 23 de Enero de Caracas.
Esta canción tiene como propósito elevar por medio de un baquiné afroboricua el invicto espíritu de nuestro comandante bolivariano Hugo Chávez hacia la eternidad y celebrar el triunfo de la revolución mediante los frutos que han resultado de un proceso largo, tormentoso, pero al mismo tiempo hermoso. Este es un tributo bolivariano de parte de una comunidad de artistas de los dos extremos del Atlántico unidos por la justa causa de la revolución socialista del siglo XXI y del porvenir de Venezuela y de los pueblos del mundo.
No lie, it’s been a while since a thug has been in the kitchen. So I log into the tumblrverse today to check my shit, maybe dust off the dash and get some new content out. Son, I’ve got a TON of fucking messages (I’m going to try to reply to them all, I promise) and I’m seeing my shit posted all over the god damn place.
I’m glad all you healthy/sexy mother fuckers kept the kitchen warm while I was away. I’m officially back and stepping up my game. Seriously, all the love I’ve got from my followers makes me want to post the best content I can for you. Thug Kitchen undergoing reconstruction as of right now. I’m so fucking heated right now. Shit.
THERE’S SO MUCH GOD DAMN SPINACH in this shit even Popeye can’t hate. Yeah spinach makes you swoll as fuck, we know that. But did you know just one cup of spinach is over 300% of your daily recommended Vitamin A? Sweet fuck. You worried about acne? Wrinkles? Any other skin shit? Spinach to the mother fucking rescue. That shit keeps your skin looking so fresh and so clean, not to mention helping to prevent skin cancer. Spinach has these plant-based compounds called “flavonoids” that not only repair damaged skin but also fight multiple types of cancer. Everybody knows I ain’t even fucking playing when it comes to dick cancer, I gotta have my shit in tact.
IF YOU SMOKE cigarettes (tumblr crew I’m looking at you), DO NOT take any Vitamin A or beta carotene supplements. Studies have shown that combining those supplements with tobacco drastically increases your risk for lung cancer. But then again, smoking drastically increases your risk for lung cancer. So quit that shit.
You want to make this shit at home and tell Jamba Juice they can go fuck themselves by not paying for their high calorie sugary shit? Recipe below for a Thug Kitchen Original:
Ectoplasm free and Dr. Venkman approved
- 2 handfuls of spinach (about 2 cups)
- 2 frozen bananas
- 1 cup chopped and skinned cucumber
- 4 medium chunks of pineapple
- 1 cup coconut water or tap
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 1 tablespoon flax oil (optional)
- 6-8 mint leaves (optional, but I dig that shit)
- yields ~20 ounces
Toss that shit in a blender and zap it. If you prefer it a little sweeter, add some more pineapple to that shit. DRINK UP, CHAMP.
Seriously though, fuck Jamba Juice. Only they could make smoothies as unhealthy as McDonald’s made oatmeal.

“Patologías del Invisible Incómodo” es un álbum de concepto, donde la interconexión e interdependencia entre cada track significa y engloba una experiencia musical y discursiva; no se trata de una colección de sencillos. Aquí compartimos “Sopa de letras” (Spoken word) y “Caleidoscopio” el septimo de una serie de 16 videos.
Bocafloja “Segundos” (Official Video. 2012) quilomboarte
“Patologias del Invisible Incomodo” is a concept album, where the interconnection & interdependence of each track signifies and globalizes a musical and discursive experience. It is not a collection of singles. We share with you “Segundos,” the fourth of sixteen videos by Bocafloja.
“Segundos” is a tribute to the dignification of the oppressed body, it is a redefinition of celebration as an affirmative act. It is a historical representation of a constant position of disadvantage, the legalized allocation of second placed priorities in terms of social, political, cultural and even biological experiences within the majority of state structures.
Filmed in Cuba, “Segundos” plays with a visual metaphor, in which we intend to transmit the decolonial beauty of second beings par excellence.
“Segundos” was directed by Michael Fernandez with the help of Cuban Hip Hop artists Clan Completo. Musical production of “Segundos” was provided by Jim B, and features DJ Ethos on the cuts.
