I'll be doing a ONLINE DOWNLOAD release of Black Kripple Delivers Krip Love Mixtape for valentine's day 2013.
I like to introduce you to The Black Kripple Delivers Krip Love Mixtape by The Black Kripple, aka Leroy Moore me. You know it is about time that everybody (especially the media) know that people with disabilities like everybody else experience sexuality, are in relationships, have sex and wants that feeling of being wanted. This should be nothing new! The Black Kripple Delivers Krip Love Mixtape explains some stories through poemsongs that many peeps with disabilities and I have to go through expressing our sexuality and disability in this society and in relationships. Of course most of the poemsongs comes from my experiences as a Black disabled man expressing my sexuality and love to the public in general, other disabled brothers and sisters and of course to my girlfriend. This 12 track CD has three new songs that will blow you away. The latest is Droolilicious, coming up with our own language to flip the script. Stop The World is a song that wants to sneak some time alone with the one you love. My old but sexy poem, Forbidden Acts, makes taboos desirable. The three tracks joins the nine with Beautiful Kripple Angel that brings a new concept by using a known image and krippling it like the notion of an angel. We have a popular image of an angel of being perfect in body. Beautiful Kripple Angel not only gives love to disabled people but also reshapes our thinking of who can be an angel. Red Eye is about long distance love and the desire to catch a late night plane to his lover. Poet Wants To Sing is how love makes you do things that you would not think of doing. Being a poet some times I want to sing my poems. You will hear I'm no Luther Vandross but I just had to do it. Krip-Kissing once again takes something we know, Kissing and Krippling it in a hot way saying people with disabilities have their own way of kissing. Ummm r u interested? hahaha. I'm Beautiful, is a very old poem dedicated to Black women with disabilities and also at the same time displaying my hotness through race and disability. Love How U Love Me is my poemsong dedicated to Darla L who loves all of me including my krippleness, brown skin, my art AND YES MY DROOLING... Bed Time Blues is once again how long distance lovers get lonely at night when it is time for bed. Believe me, I hate that time of day! Tell Me & I Do It is once again a poemsong on how I want to do anything for my lady. Red Eye is a dreaming poemsong wishing I could catch a red eye to my lady. The reason Red Eye is on there twice is because the song has two different mixes one from Keith Jones an R N B sound and the other by Rob Da 'Noize Temple with a Ray Charles Blues kind of beat.
I know there are so many experiences of people with disabilities dealing with sexuality, love and relationships and I hope everybody will express their love in the way they want to. I also hope more musicians/poets/singers express the experiences of people with disabilities in a powerful political and honest way. ENJOY
I would like to thank all the music producers on this mixtape who were mostly Black disabled musicians except for Jay Williams who is not disabled:
Rob Da 'Noize Temple who really kicked some butt with music production on 5 out of 9 songs in three days.
Jay Williams who mixed and provided music to my first every poetry mixtape back in 1999 I'm Beautiful has been one of my favorite poems and the public eats it up.
Rinnessy who funked out my song for Darla, Love How U Love Me then Jay laid his touch on it by mixing it.
Keith Jones who smooth out Red Eye and Bed Time Blues
Thank u everybody!
