GODBODY

The African Science of Amplified Being

Message of the Day- Don’t let anything stop you from following your dreams.
From Jay-Z telling him he needs to stick to producing, to a almost fatal Car accident, Having his mouth wired and still recording, To his mom Passing away, to people trying to minimize his success, Kanye Has never let anyone or anything control his ambition.
Just look at this picture from 12yrs ago and imagine where music would be if He would have given up on his dreams.
Don’t ever dwell on what you don’t have, if you don’t have something at the moment, God just doesn’t think your ready, so be happy with what you have and use those tools to help you get what you need! 🙏😊

they outlawed this move just because she was the only woman who could do it. 
Surya Bonaly was infamous for (among other things) doing aone blade backflip in the 1998 Olympics, and is the ONLY figure skater who’s ever pulled that off. Not just the only woman, the only figure skater PERIOD. There’s like all ofthree Olympic-class male skaters who did backflips in their routines, and NONE of them could do it one blade.
But wait, there’s more.
Backflips were banned from the 1976 Olympics onward on the official justification that skating jumps are supposed to be landed on one blade, whereas backflips are landed on both blades. The unofficial justification was it was too dangerous, both to the athlete and to the rink — if you didn’t land it perfectly, you could not only break your ankle, but also punch THROUGH the ice surface.
Surya Bonaly was openly contemptuous of the figure skating judges, because they were a bunch of openly racist white men who always screwed her over by giving her lower scores than she deserved. That one-blade backflip was her ultimate FUCK YOU! to the Olympics judges, because she took an “illegal” backflip and made it legal by landing it on one blade. Pretty much DARING them to mark her down for being epic awesome and pulling a move that their precious coddled white girls didn’t have the guts to even think about.
They did, of course. White racism knows no bounds. But she utterly owned them with that move.
not only did she do a fucking backflip and land, she landed then went right into a triple loop. like holy fuck

Damn son I ain’t seen shit like that.

It’s back!! :-)
