Heyoka by Malik Diamond published on 2012-07-27T05:20:52Z From the Black Sun Red Moon mixtape. "Heyoka" comes from Lakota, one of the indigenous nations of the Great Plains of Turtle Island, now known as america. "Heyoka" are the sacred clowns, the mirrors who reveal absurdity, and have a direct connection to "wakan tanka," The Great Mystery. They are healers and medicine people, and part of their job is to keep people from taking shit too seriously. One of my "aspects" is a Hip Hop Clown. Seeing through the self-absorbed bullshit of the hip hop universe, my job is to remind folks that hip hop is bigger than any hype; it's a spiritual science. For people who think it's just a music or fashion or "lifestyle" category, I'm here to stir the shit up.
