Day 170 Rapper Kuf Knots-Positive Light

Kuf Knots at the Pittsburgh Winey with Multu
 I thought that I would be the  last person on the planet to ever  listen to Rap music. However, I got hooked on this guy Kuf Knotz because of his positive message when I experienced his music  at the Pittsburgh Winery (see blog Day 169).  According to my blog inspiration psychologist,  Maslow, viewing the world in a positive light is a  characteristic of a person who is Self- Actualized or who has reached their personal best.  Rapper Kuf Knot’s  new  CD,  A Positive Light  is filled with  inspiration and  positive energy. This is what most of us need as we  navigate through  life.

His music mixed jazz, soul, and blues with hip hop/rap.  The rap dialogue was poetic. Just like in poetry, the a message is scaled down to a few words but is packed with meaning.  The titles of his  songs illustrate the vibe of the music: Elevation, Get Free, New Dayz , Balance, Guidance and Positive  Light, (click here to listen to the tracks) I enjoyed the soulful sounds  of the refrains sung  between the rapping. He had a singer with him for the refrains that reminded me of  Nora Jones. They were fantastic!
As I said in blog Day 167, “You can’t move forward if you’re off balance.”    The Song, "Balance"reminded me that it is:
Something we all need,
The space in-between effort and ease,                                                          
The way of life each day, we  give  and we take, -- balance 

I can now say that I own one (1)  Rap/hip hop CD called, A Positive Light . Thank you Kuf Knotz for bringing us music that  lifts  us up. As the title song states “Your light shines bright for the world to see (We can be anything  we dream)... It’s a positive light.”  (track Positive Light)
Spiritual Reflection
So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual up-building (Romans 14:19) ESV
And let us now  consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the day drawing near.  (Hebrews 10:24-25) ESV
