Rapper Nipsey Hussle killed! But why?

Nip1..

he term “Hustle” in the online variations of a dictionary, carries 15 deferent explanations. However the one that stood out to me for this article explains hustle as having “busy movement and activity”. The term was first used in the late 17th century (originally in the sense ‘shake or toss’). It originated from Middle Dutch hutselen. Hustle became a household verb and or noun dating from the early 20th century and in today’s urban lingo (another name for black people talk), to hustle is to have the courage, confidence, self belief and self-determination to go out there ( in the world) and work for whatever you want, until you find the successes you want in life.

Sometime on Sunday March 31st, a young hustler, an Eritrean-American by the name of Ermias Davidson Asghedom , was murdered outside his place of business in Compton California. Like many who grew up in that part of Los Angles, young black men usually had a passion for sports or music, as a way to get out of the crushing poverty and racism of amurdikkka’s and California’s discrepancies in social and economic classes. And like most of these young men looking to change their circumstances, getting resources was tough, especially since Asghedom left his mother’s house at 14 to live with his grandmother. Asghedom said he got involved in street life as he tried to support himself, and he joined the gang Rollin 60’s Neighborhood Crips as a teenager. It was there he choose the moniker Nipsey Hustle and got into rapping and songwriting. Emerging from the West Coast hip hop scene in the mid-2000s, He initially became known for his numerous mixtapes, including his Bullets Ain’t Got No Name series, The Marathon, The Marathon Continues and Crenshaw, the latter of which rapper Jay-Z, bought 100 copies for $100 each. After much delay, his début studio album Victory Lap was released in February 2018 to critical acclaim and commercial success, and was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards in 2019. All this before he reached 33 years of age But more important than all of that, Nipsey Hustle overstood the Afurakan concept of “If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”.

Hustle believed whole heartedly in giving back to the streets and community that supported his rise to the top, without the oppression of record companies and agents who always look to syphon off the energies and blood of talented artists to engorged themselves. Outside of music, Nipsey Hussle said he wanted to provide hope and motivation to those who grew up in Crenshaw like him, and pay it forward. In that vein, being a strong businessman, the rapper and business partner Dave Gross purchased the Crenshaw plaza where his Marathon Clothing store is located, and had plans to knock it down and “rebuild it as a six-story residential building atop a commercial plaza where a revamped Marathon store will be the anchor tenant.” Think about this for a moment. He just bought a whole strip mall, a strip mall he used to hustle his mixed tape in front off, out of the trunk of his car. He was about to open a co-working space and teach financial literacy to the disenfranchised of the Compton neighborhood of Crenshaw. Yet Some unknown gun man killed him and wounded two others standing close by. Apparently in front of his wife and daughter. I hope the last wasn’t true, because that would be very disturbing and traumatic for them. According to numerous reactions Hustle was killed because he was about to make a documentary on murdered Afurakan herbalist-nutritionists Dr. Sebi and his trial for claiming ( and proving) to cure people of AIDS. Many counter reactions by kneegrows…the cave monkey don’t count…was that the conspiracy theorists are out with their tin foil hats. Below is a video he did with the breakfast club recently.

Nip3...

Now I am not here to praise this rapper or worship him as a celebrity. That’s not my style. I am however shocked at the seemingly senseless murder of a man who by all accounts was doing some much and putting back so much into a community lacking much positive media spotlight or positive anything. After all Compton is notorious for being the origin of the Crips and later Blood, a fratricidal gang of lost men and boys, that was created in 1969. Compton is a place infamous for its violent gangs and dirty streets. Extending from the remains of a once prosperous suburban community, in the uncaring eyes of most of this shit hole country, Compton has become a broken city, reflected through its society and reputation. The poverty-stricken South Central LA area is now recognized nationwide by one thing, and one thing only. Its gangs. But what led to the rise of the prominent Crips and Bloods? Many middle-class Afurakan citizens of amurdikkka started moving to Compton, from the South to escape Jim Crow abuses, but also to seek job opportunities in the North and West of the country. Many ended up in this predominately white community. For a long time Compton’s population was mostly white and today still boasts a fair amount of white Americans. Making up about 16% of the current population, although that is not very commonly known. The addition of Afurakan citizens of amurdikkka changed the demographic of Compton, but that did not go over well with Europeans. Afurakan were far from accepted with open arms and faced a lot of discrimination and racism. The City Council even tried dismantling the Compton Police Department in order to exclude Afurakan…from law enforcement. All of this set the precedent for the racial injustice that would continue to buildup through time in Compton.


Police assaults, as well as the encouragement of assaults by citizens without any punishment, weighed heavy on the spirits of a people who only wanted to live their life without stress. The racial unrest that still continues today has greatly influenced what Compton has become. As it became more and more of a Afurakan community, Compton saw a great economic decline, as business and employment moved out of the neighbourhoods, which escalated even more after the conclusion of WWII. Many were left jobless and poverty rose. Unfortunately, it would just get worse from there. Due to the fact that Compton was now a predominantly Afurakan community it received much less help from the County and the State than other cities where a majority where white did. This racism and inequality not only damped the economy, but due to the fact that having Afurakan neighbors was considered a bad thing, property values plummeted as well. More than a few young men came together to protect their neighbourhoods from roving bands of citizens and undercover race soldiers, who history has shown us, always swoop down on Afurakans to sow terror among. Compton’s situation continued to drastically worsen and after most white people and jobs left the area, many started to turn to crime and drugs looking for an economic solution. This is the reason gang culture became so prominent here and in other depressed cities. The most notorious gang was the Crips, who sought to fill the void left after the dismantling of the Black Panther Party by Nazi Ronald Ray-gun and the vipers of California’s Gestapo police force. The mixture of racial unrest and economic depression was just enough to set the right atmosphere for gangs to arise. Gangs were a simple, dangerous, adrenalin filled way of making cash. They could deal drugs, rob people and stores, and come up with a healthy profit. Many frustrated youth turned to this system.
Like everything else the children of slaves touched, without a cultural foundation it often turned to shit! The gangs that formed decided to fight AGAINST each other for survival instead of uniting against the government and outside forces, bent on eliminating them or had suppressed them before. Herbert Anthony Stevens, better know by his stage name “Ab-Soul,” is a rapper from Los Angeles who hypothesized in his song “Terrorist Threats,” “If all the gangs in the world unified, we’d stand a chance against the military tonight.” Instead it seemed gangs formed rivalries and worked to try to out due each other in terms of territory and revenue. What I find interesting is not that Nipsey Hustle was doing a documentary on Dr. Sebi. No…what I find interesting is two-fold. First, he was providing economic relief and hope for a whole neighbourhood. He expected to teach and train future leaders and entrepreneurs to break stereotypes and eventually compete on their own merit. Now that is a powerful vision. Hustle had influenced so many people, even those not in his circle, because he was one of a very few who reached back to help his brother and sister up. The other interesting thing I read was that he was shot in the head. From a far distance. Anybody who does gun training, including military or police training, will tell you a head shot is a very skilled and difficult thing from a distance. None of the survivors saw a gun man. There was no drive by. Which is prompting the police to score street cameras and asking for assistance. This could only mean that the shooter was a distance away. Somewhere in sniper distance. Kneegrows don’t do sniper shit, unless they are ex military or police snipers themselves. We usually do a drive by, ride by or run up and spray everybody, sometimes hitting people we didn’t mean to hit. Yet a head shot? With two other people wounded for effect?
Things that make you go mmmmm?
Rapper Nas mourned Hussle’s death on Instagram and wrote, “It’s dangerous to be an MC. Dangerous to be a b-ball player. It’s dangerous to have money. Dangerous To Be A Black Man.” Somebody else mentioned that this echoes “the same pattern, (where) someone comes along trying to enlighten and change the cycle and they’re killed. Every time….” If you follow the bouncing ball and recall that last year the story broke that Latino gangs were brought in by local authority to kill, burn and bomb out black neighbourhoods to make them unlivable.

Nip2..

And it has high value real estate. Compton is one such area that through gentrification could be a boon and boost for white or non black business and residence to swoop in and take advantage of another “abandoned black neighborhood”. Teaching black people to take back their community is trending right now. It’s however a dangerous trend to people who see real estate as the ultimate base of power.
Real Estate: from the Latin Real (Royal) Estate (land). Real Estate and the fight over it, has caused more wars and family break ups than trade wars or vagina ( Helen of Troy any one?) has ever done. During the rise of European Feudalism, which corresponded with the demise of the European Monarchy, land was leased out to tenants to farm and lived on, but never owned. I once sat in a lecture on entrepreneurship where the speaker mentioned that for McDonald’s…yes that one…wealth is not in their restaurant, but in the real estate they were able to purchase to put the restaurants on. Banks are notorious for owning the land they sit on and rarely if ever sell that property. Preferring to rent or lease any business on that former bank site. Real Estate and the need to own land, has been the boon and bane of many cultures not respectful of land sharing. None more so than the Europeans. It was Real Estate or land that made them come west to Turtle Island and surrounding lands. Some where searching for gold and diamonds, but many wanted land to have a new start in life. And didn’t mind killing a few black people along the way.
Read that last line again.

Nip4..

Even today in Afuraka, the South Pacific, the Caribbean and South America, white people stealing lands and displacing the owners in order to mine, live on or place business on, is as naturally as them breathing air. After the great perversion that was chattel slavery was legal ended in order to remove the wealth of the plantation owners for the new wealth of the industrialists, black people were promised and never given their forty acres and a mule to fight the tribal war for the North against its redder neck cousin, in the South. And when we went west or north to find land, we inevitably were burned out, run out or murdered out right for the lands. And most of the time this was done with the direct and indirect support of local, state or federal governments. Ourstory is filled with such tales. None more egregious than the story of Black Wall street.

While many are claiming that some random black guy shot Ermias Davidson Asghedom, I prefer to say his real name ( otherwise known as Nipsey Hustle) I see the nefarious hands of white people in this. He was not some random thug, doing thug shit. This was a business man, who exemplified the amurdikkklan lie that anybody can pull themselves up by their boot strap. The lie is you as a Afurakan person, can do so without interference. White wealth has always been built on credit. That is, its built on white people taking credit for every thing black people do. Like building the economy of the South during our enslavement. Saving their assess in their civil war, their Revolutionary wars, WWI and WWII, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the site of the Capital of amurdikkka and many other things that meritorious manumission would take care of. And for the record, most murders of famous people are committed in amurdikkka after they attempted to rally our people to raise our economic and land ownership status. I believe the fall out from this murder will either be that “line gun man on a grassy knoll” or some sucker “known to police” offered up as sacrifice. But how does a random black dude shooting him explained? Are they gonna say it was a drug deal gone bad? past beef? childhood revenge?, Gang activity? what will be the official police report?
Things that make you go mmmmm?

Dedication to all my subscribers: I appreciate the love and support!

I wanted to make a video to show some appreciation to all the people I’ve met in cyberspace.  Like most people I’ve had ups and downs in life.  But even when I was feeling down a lot of you helped uplift my spirits.  And I’ve learned so much from many of you. Many of you have shared information with me that I never knew.  And hopefully I’ve done the same for you. That’s all I ever wanted to do.  I never started blogging to be Mr. Popular. I don’t do this to be some kind of conscious celebrity. I have strong opinions and I’ve actually lost subscribers because of my views. But at least I’m honest about my feelings.  I love my people and I just want them to realize we are in a real war at the moment.  I just try to bring them information that will elevate their consciousness and see through the lies. So this video is long overdue. To all the kind brothers and sisters I’ve chatted with on WordPress,Youtube and Twitter.  I also want to thank all the people who reblogged and shared my posts on Instagram and Facebook.  All your hard work is not going unnoticed. I appreciate all the love.  I just wanted to say thank you!

Dr Sebi- Death of a Natural Herbalist

sebi1Natural herbalist Dr Sebi passed away while I was on hiatus. Someone asked me to do a post about him. I know he touched the lives of many people.  And helped to cure many people of cancer,diabetes,AIDS,arthritis and sickle cell.  Here’s a biography and a few videos on his death. It should give you some food for thought.  Let me know your thoughts.

Alfredo Darrington Bowman also known as the world famous Dr. Sebi the man who cures cancer and aids along with many other diseases was detained after a flight from California that landed at the Juan Manuel Galvez de Roatan Airport on May 28, 2016 under charges of money laundering. Dr. Sebi and his associate Pablo Medina Gamboa were apprehended carrying a total of $50,000 in cash. $20,000 on Dr. Sebi and $30,000 on Gamboa. They were attempting to board a private plane headed to another location in Honduras. He was detained and then released for a pending court appearance that would later take place on June 3, 2016.

After his court hearing on June 3, 2016 Dr. Sebi was detained under the charges of money laundering by the Public Ministerio. On an unconfirmed date and time between June 3rd and the August 6th Dr. Sebi reported severe health conditions during incarceration related to pneumonia. In critical health condition he was rushed to the Vicente D’antoni Hospital but died in transit. Before this event his brother Garden Bowman reported that Dr. Sebi had experienced health complications from pneumonia and was prescribed medication by the hospital. His exact conditions of death and any evidence of foul play is still unknown and under investigation. He was received at the hospital by Dr. Edwin Interiano.

Dr. Sebi died at 82 and is survived by 17 children, he was a inspiration to many and will be intensely missed by people all over the world impacted by his holistic approach to wellness.

Dr. Sebi born Alfredo Bowman on November 26, 1933 in the village of llanga in Spanish Honduras. Dr. Sebi never attended school, not even kindergarten. Instead, he took cues on being obedient to the procession of life from his beloved grandmother, “Mama Hay”. Sebi’s mother had to leave her young son with his grandmother to obtain work in another town. His early days of play and observation by the river and in the forest, coupled with guidance from his grandmother, afforded Sebi the foundation to be obedient to the Truth in his later life.

Dr. Sebi came to the United States as a self-educated man who was diagnosed with asthma, diabetes, impotency, and obesity. After unsuccessful treatments with conventional doctors, Sebi was lead to an herbalist in Mexico. Finding great healing success from all his ailments, he began creating natural vegetation cell food compounds geared for inter-cellular cleansing and the revitalization of all the cells that make up the human body.

Inspired by the personal healing experience and knowledge he gained, he began sharing the compounds with others, which gave birth to the USHA Research Institute, Dr. Sebi LLC, and the Usha Healing Village located in Laceiba, Honduras. Dr. Sebi Videos

Sebi is a pathologist, herbalist, biochemist, and naturalist. He has studied and personally observed herbs in America, Latin America, Africa, and the Caribbean, and has developed a unique approach to healing with herbs that is firmly rooted in over 30 years of practical experience.

Pan African Proclamation of 2016

RBG Man...

Hotep family! It’s your brother KP.  I hope everyone is doing well.  I enjoyed my little break from posting. I thought this would be a good post for my return. Here at Kushite Kingdom I have always promoted  the idea of being Pan African. As well as covering topics like Black consciousness,economics,African culture and Black liberation. In exposing the lies that we are told about our history, I’ve tried my best to wake up my people. Many of us get so much disinformation in the media we are very confused.  That’s why I do my best to get out important information to my people. Even if I offend other races in the process. Offending people is not my concern.   If I was scared to offend others I would’ve stop blogging a long time ago.The survival of my people is my main concern.  I have always believed  that black consciousness was a spiritual path based on health,wellness amd knowledge of self. Black consciousness is appreciation for our African heritage,our people and families. And real  power is about determination and self control.  You can call this a proclamation,manifesto,mission statement or public declaration.  But I just wanted to list some ideas and things we as black people should be doing if we want to survive as well as change our mindset.  We have a lot of work ahead of us.  But together we can do this.  I’m sure some of you will like some of it…and others will disagree.  But that’s okay. I’m open to any suggestions anyone may have.

27. Assume that all non-blacks do not have your best interest in mind.
28. Brothers: Do not display a misogynistic mindset. Hating and despising black women shows ignorance and no growth as a man.  You must learn to respect your woman. Let sistas express themselves although it is okay to disagree at times. But give sistas their space.
29. Sistas: Do not be a man hating feminist.  Do not put down or degrade your man. Use words of encouragement to uplift your man.  And realize that men want to be leaders. Every gender has their role and should compliment the other gender.  A relationship is a partnership that both can benefit from.
30.  You must realize that the masculine principle  and feminine principle compliment one another. And that black men and women must work together to strengthen the family unit.

Clarification Needed:Genuine Conscious Brothers vs Hotep Negroes(Part 2)

The last few years I’ve been hearing this term called “Fake Hoteps”.  I’ve also heard other terms like Hotep Niggas, Ankh Negroes,Phony Conscious brothers etc.  In the above video film producer/author/pick up artist Tariq Nasheed pokes fun at the conscious community.  He goes on to say that there are black men who claim to be conscious or “woke” but really aren’t.  I can’t lie, there’s some truth to what he says.  Tariq says he didn’t make his Hidden Colors films for the conscious community. And I believe him.  Tariq has written other books on how to pick up women and get them to do what you want.  One of his books it titled The Art of Macking.  Although I wouldn’t describe Tariq has a conscious black man but he brings up valid points in this video.  He watches videos by real African scholars,collect notes then makes a film from it.  And he’s making money in the process. I’m not hating on him.  Most of the black history he had in the original Hidden Colors I already knew.  I already know 90% of everything in all his films.  So he’s not teaching me much but I think it’s good that he was able to educate some brothers and sisters.

Hotep1

Look at that pic above.  This is the type of memes I found while searching the internet. Yeah I’m sure many of you think he looks silly right? Don’t get me wrong now.  I do consider myself a conscious black man.  But I have a sense of humor and can laugh at myself.  I think many people think conscious people are super serious 24/7.  No that is not the case.  Conscious people like to laugh,tell jokes,have dinner with family and friends,make love and see a good movie.  We do everything that most other people do.  And I try to be open minded as best I can. But I still have my morals and belief system.   And if you’re a genuine conscious brother you will hold fast to your ideals. Now back to what Tariq was talking about. He says half of the conscious community is full of crap. I think he’s talking about the guys who have become well known in the conscious circuit.  Some of the names are guys like Brother Polight,Minister Enqi,Sara Suten Seti,Professor Griff,Red Pill and Blue Pill,King Noble,Iman Bashir..among others.  A lot of times they have lectures and debate against one another.  Some of them follow Kemetic knowledge,some are Moors or Hebrews.  And they debate each other on who has the best solution for black people.  It’s basically a knowledge battle.  And one of the ring leaders is a guy named Sa Neter. He’s known as the “Don King of Consciousness”.  It was entertaining to watch some of these debates at first but it quickly got old real fast!  They maybe cashing in by having these debates but what’s the end game?  Shouldn’t we be talking about nation building?  What about a black nation?  Rebuilding another Black Wallstreet?  Nope!  These guys are too busy verbally masturbating when we should be concentrating on solutions for our people.  They can’t even put aside their religious views and find common ground.

Umar Johnson used to hand out with these guys but he said he cut them off once he realized they weren’t about moving black people forward. I honestly can’t be mad at Umar for that. Tariq Nasheed also talked about fake hoteps who manipulate women to get them in bed.  Manipulation?? That’s kind of funny coming from a guy who writes about how to get women in bed himself.  But I digress.  He is correct that these some of these fake conscious guys do use women. They like to say they have “knowledge of self” but are really just saying that to sound deep. They may have read one or two books on Africa and watched Hidden Colors and now they think their scholars.  It’s also a way to impress women to get what they want from them.  To be honest there’s nothing new about men manipulating women to get them in bed.  Many men will say anything to achieve that goal.  And they come from all walks of life.  There are men who are cops,plumbers,garbage men,judges,athletes,lawyers..who all lie to women.  And all races of men do this as well. White men,Mexicans,Puerto Ricans,Asians etc.  So what is the big deal with fake hoteps doing it?  I think many women find it hurtful because these guys CLAIM to be conscious when they really are far from it. I think that’s where much of the anger is coming from. They’re claiming to be different then other guys but aren’t really conscious. Or they are what I call semi-conscious.

Hotep2

Are there other definitions of fake Hoteps? Check out the pic above.  I found it very interesting.  People who are race conscious will have varying views.  And black men who are conscious are no different.  You can’t put all conscious black men in a box.  I personally don’t condone homosexuality or lesbianism.  Anyone who follows my blog already knows this.  I find homosexuality abnormal and I believe it’s anti-life and goes against nature.  However there are some in the conscious community who disagree.  Some feel as though it’s okay as long as they don’t push the lifestyle on others.  I don’t think gay people should be killed or harmed.  But I don’t think that lifestyle is productive for African people.  And I have a right to my beliefs??    I believe the LGBTQ community wants everyone in the known universe to accept their sexual perversion.  And if you don’t it means you’re a hater or a close minded bigot.  Or their favorite…you suffer from homophobia.  That is utterly ridiculous!  I’m not afraid of homosexuals!  I think they’re more afraid of people who have a enough courage to speak their mind.  Some of us are not brainwashed by the pro-gay,anti-black media.

Then there is the belief that many black men are misogynist.   I believe there is some truth to this.  But there are black men who are conscious and unconscious that are misogynistic.  But you can’t put that ONLY on the conscious brothers.  There are mysogynistic men in all walks of life. But what is a misogynist anyway?

Misogynist: A person who dislikes,despises or strongly prejudiced against women.

Well I for one do not hate black women.  Why would I?  I was raised by a wonderful mother and I have great aunts,grandmothers and female cousins.  I have no hatred or resentment towards women. I have a right to my opinion and I can disagree with a sista.  If I disagree with a woman does that make me a misogynist?? No it does not.  There will always be disagreements in discussions.  I believe that there needs to be mutual respect on both sides.  And we’re all adults so we can agree to disagree on a matter.  But there should be no hatred or resentment because of  a difference of viewpoints.   You can call me strong willed.  Or call me opinionated but not misogynistic. I think the real problem we are dealing with is we all have a different consciousness due to living under white supremacy.  The core issue with talk about fake hoteps and fake Bohemian chicks is this. Its a battle between Knowledge of self vs wallowing in ignorance.  Many of our people love anti-blackness. We have been taught to hate to hate ourselves after 400 years plus of captivity.  And because of that we don’t like to hear about bettering ourselves,learning your history,embracing Africa,respecting women,rejecting white standards, and raising your consciousness. Many of us don’t want to do that. We rather watch stupid sitcoms that make fun of black people. Watch television shows like Power,Scandal,Blackish and Empire that promote images of blacks as thugs,drug dealers,whores,interracial daters,cut throat murderers and buffoons.  So naturally anyone who claims to be conscious or an intelligent black man or woman is seen as an enemy. Too many of our people are don’t respect black people(anti-blackness) so they don’t take your consciousness seriously.  They believe all who claim to be conscious are just phony people who want to sound deep and smarter than everyone else.   I understand we are all a work in progress.  I’ve been on this journey of learning about our people and culture for over fifteen years.  I first read books by Chancellor Williams,Carol Barnes,John Henrik Clarke,Dr Ben,Ivan Van Sertima,Marimba Ani,Frances Cress Welsing,Llaila Afrika,Amos Wilson, Runoko Rashidi,Cheikh Anta Diop,Queen Afua,Bobby Wright and Mwalimu Baruti.  I later started collecting dvd’s by Dr Sebi,Phil Valentine,Anthony Browder,Bobby Hemmitt,Leonard Jeffries,James Smalls,Jewel Pookrum and Richard King.  If you are not a familiar with these names I suggest you look them up. Many of them have videos on YouTube.  But YouTube debuted back in 2005. I was on this journey long before then.  I was studying African culture and history long before there was even a term such as fake hotep.  But it shows me that the contempt for knowledge and higher consciousness is growing.  The racist white supremacists that control Facebook,Youtube,Yahoo and Google have done a great job pushing black self hatred and black degradation.  You know it’s bad when intelligence,consciousness,honor and black self respect is looked down upon.  We have really hit an all time low as a people.

I’ll end this post in the best way possible.  This is a great video by one of the most brilliant minds I have ever come across. Amos Wilson was an author,Pan African thinker and psychologist.  There’s a reason most black people have never heard of him.  It’s because he had real solutions fro building black economy and a black nation.  He taught about black dignity and self respect.  So you can see why he’s pretty unknown in the mainstream media.  The give us these silly negroes like Cornel West,Al Sharpton,Jesse Jackson and Michael Eric Dyson.  They are just paid to mislead black people.  But Amos spoke the truth to his people.  Even if we didn’t want to hear it.  In this video he explains the power of consciousness.  And how a persons consciousness shapes the world around them.  And the consciousness of black people is seriously warped.  And if we want to move forward as a people this has to change.  I believe time is slowly running out for our people.  There will come a time when all the labels(Pro-black,feminist,conscious,man hater,educated,ignorant,woman basher) probably wont matter anymore.  The question is  will we wake up in time? Or will many of us become “conscious” when it’s too late? Peace my brothers and sistas.  And oh yeah…..Hotep!
