After I posted this http://steadyb.blogspot.com/2009/05/gas ... lamer.html - I got a lot of interesting feedback/messages/e-mails from readers.

This one, in particular, stands out and comes from an extremely credible source and sheds light on a tragic situation:

Quote:
Your blog made me feel like sharing...

Vordul begs for money on 125th street. First time he asked me I was like WTF and gave him a couple bucks on GP (and partial guilt that I had bootlegged his most recent solo album). He passed it off like he was trying to get some money for weed once I recognized him, I told him normally I'd buy a bag and roll a blunt with him but I was with my wife who was like 7 months pregnant.

The other day it happened again. I heard the beg for money, and must've given him a pretty disappointed look, because he looked a little dejected and my wife said later, "That was him right? The rapper again? I knew because the look on your face was like 'Not this fool again, you still haven't gotten your shit together.'"

*****************************, but never did, because honestly I feel really bad for the dude. He's one of my favorite rappers from the whole Post-Rawkus indy rapper era, and I think he's a tremendous talent. But it looks like the economic hard times, probably compounded with some sort of serious addiction, heroine or crack, have driven the dude to new lows.

Damn shame.


Expect more from the Steady Bloggin' team on this one. Not with the intent of exploiting his plight, but trying to revive an MC who is actually worthy of such an effort.

No idea who that is, but if he is as big of a faggot as you that can't be a good thing.

Seen dude like a year ago outside of Knitting Factory right before they closed doors. He seemed like he was doing alright. Given that doesnt exactly give me any major "insight" into his financial status. He didnt exactly seem like he was going to be begging for money anytime soon. Also who stands on the street and begs for drug money... and admits it?

whether this is true or not: any motherfuckers who really make fun of people in hard times are worthless sons of bitches who deserve multiple karma lashes to teach you to do onto others as you would pray they would do unto you.

It's actually not that sad. He spends his whole day concerned with feeding his own impulses and addictions. let a ho be a ho and let a crackhead smoke his crack fuck it. i mean if he doesnt want to work, he doesnt want to do shit but panhandle and smoke crack, it must be some good stuff huh? lol feeling sorry for a guy that is doing what he wants to do. and dont give me that shit about he cant help it because he is addicted. if he wants to cry out and show the world how mad he is by smoking one of the foulest drugs out there. than maybe something good will become of those tribulations he is creating. until then fuck him let him smoke in piece.

And aren't you the same guy who smokes PCP with learning-disabled third-graders and then crashes your kids' friends birthday parties on that leakleakleak?

Fuckin' weirdo.

If this were written in all caps and had a few references to Anacron I'd swear this was written by conspiracy.

lol maybe somewhat true. but yall are some pussies for even entertaining the thought of trying the help this dude. never knew employee had a heart of gold like that. what a softy.
didnt realize when I joined this board that it doubled as mother theresa's perpetual shining light of harlem crackhead street corner rapper's shelter.
maybe y'all should start up a fund to "lock him in the studio" (which is a really gay phrase btw).
Correct me if I'm wrong but didnt y'all like cage better when he was a fat, wet smoking, wigger?

Employee, what the fuck kind of person asks another person how dedicated they are to underground hip hop? you are getting weaker by the second. this shit is crazy. back to the future employee needs to come and warn you about the gay shit you got going on up in this thread.

I say let motherfuckers fall off. y'all are tripping for real acting like it's all sad and shit and that y'all want to help that guy. he made a good album. most people never accomplish that. lord knows mindbender never will. he had a good run. now he can fulfill his own cliche and become a indie music industry sob story.

I know y'all all too well.

thread couldn't even go one page without someone coming out the side of their shithead ass with some heartless ignorance. as if every crackhead's decline into addiction is that simple.

I'm starting to really believe Conspiracy himself is just "anachronistic" to this day and time. So am I, but I'm a bit more aware and in control of it. Just a bit.

wow. i love it. i'm already a legend, and i haven't gotten started yet.
don't try and predict my future, you dream-hating skeptics.
you only hate and/or fear me because you don't understand me.
all hate and fear comes from the same place.

same with addiction.

i hope Vordul has some family. i can't do much, but i'm going to find out what i can.
if i do get in touch with him, don't expect me to tell anyone who doesn't give a fuck.

guess i changed my sig a day too early.

hip hop still sucks because of people like some of you.

"Brain on another plane gliding through acid rain

peace to Shamar, no matter what.

Fuck all the bullshit. I agree with Employee's original post. I'd help him out if I was in the area. I just don't know if it would be any help.

For the record, I have an uncle who grew up in Miami at the height of the crack epidemic. If Vordul really is on the rock then there may not even be a point to help him. From my experience, it is almost impossible to cure a full blown crack addiction. You can maybe put it on pause, but it is just a matter of time before your loved one is back on the warpath. If this is the case with Vordul, then its a damn shame.

vordul is a good friend of mine. he's been going through some very rough times the past few years. he does have people around that try to look out for him and have his back. but he is a grown man and has to want to help himself before anyone else can. people who are replying to this thread with malice have probably never had someone close go through a crisis.

for those are u who are fans of vordul, one of the best things you can do to help him is support his music. he loves to rap, and it means a lot to him to get positive feedback. he really isn't aware of the type of fanbase he has.

I knew one day this very post was gonna surface. so all I can say, before u think of ur witty comments that make u feel better about yourself by putting him down, remember this is another human being we're talking about with real problems.

Well put.

I think it's funny everybody is assuming Vordul is on crack though. Even the guy employee is quoting clearly has no clue what's up with dude, just that hard times have resulted in him begging. He makes an assumption that it's due to some kind of addiction, but in reality I'd say crack is probably not the most likely culprit. For a lot of reasons it's not the drug of choice for most dealers or buyers these days.

Not like that greatly matters, point is the guy is hurting, and I wish him the best.
