Pop Smoke; Revelations and Closure

I was a huge fan of hip hop during middle and high school. I loved it, and my friends and I used to freestyle while we were hanging out. We had a lot of good times and lots of good memories. Then, for some reason I stopped listening to it.

Years went by. I don’t know what it is, maybe it has to do with being young and what I was doing at the time.

Anyway, that’s another story for another time. I was driving to work a while ago and Dior came on the radio, and for the first time in a long time, I had an interest in hip hop again.

Then, he was murdered. I was shocked, twenty years old with his whole life ahead of him. At the time I didn’t know much about him or the details surrounding his murder, but for some reason, both have been weighing heavy on my mind the last two days.

February 19, 2023, it will be three years since the death of Bashar Barakah Jackson, AKA, Pop Smoke, so at this point, as 2022 comes to a close and the waning gibbous moon winds down in Gemini, the planet communication, I guess the Universe wanted to share some things with me during this time of closure.

Yesterday, I did a little research to get some information, but I couldn’t help it, I felt the push to research yesterday, and again tonight to write this before bed.

And of course all the synchronicities began. I was shown several things in the astrological event chart of the moment.

Before I get into that, I was looking at the chart and I said to myself, “this looks familiar.” In a way it was similar to chart I just looked at for the Romania reading with Capricorn rising on the ascendant.


Los Angeles, California 4:00 AM, Wednesday, February 19, 2020.

Mars in the 12th house: You keep your deep and secret feelings hidden from the world; strong intuitive powers. Good: Imaginative Bad: danger from secret enemies.

The 12th house is the most mystical of all houses, and it’s known as The House of Secrets and The House of Karma. This is the house where the energy manifests into disappointments, accidents, trouble, and self-defeat. This is known as the house of karma because this where we’re rewarded or punished for our deeds.

Also in the 12th House was Pallas Athena. Pallas, for those who aren’t familiar, is an asteroid, but asteroids are a big part of my personal method for analyzing charts.

Pallas Athena was an ancient Greek Goddess associated with war, wisdom, and handicraft. She is the protectress of city states and is usually seen holding a spear and wearing a helmet. She was also known as a warrior goddess who led soldiers into battle, and the Parthenon was dedicated to her.

So, in the 12th House, we had Mars alerting us to danger from secret hidden enemies, and Pallas, the Goddess of war.

Pallas was one of 12 Olympians, and Pop’s Air B&B was in the Mount Olympus section of Hollywood Hills.

Interesting, and before doing any further reading about the murder incident, I said to myself, “there must be a female involved in this.”

I said that after seeing Pallas in the 12th and Vesta in the 4th, I had a hunch, and it was true.

The 4th House is what I was shown next. The 4th House is the house of home. It also represents the mother and the deepest most private place we retreat to when we mediate or pray.

I saw Vesta in the 4th, the Goddess of Hearth and home, and I saw Uranus. Uranus is the unpredictable revolutionary freedom fighter. Uranus provides flashes of insight, and it awakens us for change. What’s unique about Uranus is that he doesn’t care what the awakening causes because his job is to keep things moving on the right path. We may perceive Uranus to be good or bad, but according to him, his will must be done. Whatever needs to happen for the future and for progression, that’s Uranus.

Whenever I’m looking at a chart for a murder I always look to see what Pluto is doing, and of course, Pluto was in a very stressful aspect with Uranus. The square between Uranus and Pluto is known to cause dramatic upheaval.

Now don’t get me wrong, Pluto is not all bad. When the energy of Pluto is positive we see people reaching the highest heights in business and finding great success. Pluto is also responsible for that deep digging of truth and facts. He likes to bring whatever is hidden to surface. When Pluto is in poor aspect or expressed negatively we get the other extreme, murder, riots, wars, and upheaval.

In this chart, unfortunately, Pluto’s aspect to Uranus was adverse and we saw the negative side of both Pluto and Uranus manifest negatively. It was Pluto in the first house in Capricorn (the house of self and Capricorn the sign of career and public standing) squared Uranus in the 4th House in Taurus. Taurus rules the second house, which is the house of possessions. The second house is about what we own and what we value. Money also associated with the second house and Taurus.

So, that square between Pluto and Uranus pretty much told us the story and what was involved. Home, possessions (handbags purse money watch), career, public standing, the self, the possibility of upheaval, conflict, and awakening. In hindsight, this is spot on accurate. Mars told us the threat of secret enemies was present, and Pallas prepared us for the possibility of war.

The last thing I was shown was the picture below.

Page 127 Alchemy and Mysticism, Alexander Roob

I began writing this article at 11:33. The address number of place where the murder occurred was 2033. In numerology, we don’t use 0 because it’s a place holder, but from the time I started writing, which was 11:33, 1+1=2. So it’s 233 (11:33) and 233 (2033). Pop Smoke was 20.

If you look at the writing on the right side of the picture several words should stick out;

Dawn (the murder took place at dawn between 4 and 4:30 AM)

Hercules was the street name

Remains as physical residue on the floor He was found laying on the floor after being shot.

Roses Amelia Rose was the girl he apparently met that night who was said to be laying in his bed at the time of the break in.

Air He was staying at an Air B&B.

This was so sad, and Pop smoke died so young at the age of 20. God has shown me many things tonight concerning this incident, which I understood to be about Revelation and closure. With this picture he was showing and telling me that Pop Smoke was a good person with an incorruptible spirit. Usually when young men and woman die early we believe they’ve fulfilled their purpose here and it’s time for them to move on.

From what I’ve been studying about life after death and resurrection, this image was to verify the soul or divine essence of Bashar Barakah Jackson has risen and returned home to rest in the light of the divine creator we call God. He was not lost or wandering in darkness, he came here with a purpose and his purpose was complete.

After the picture, I turned the lights down, lit a candle, and went into a mediation. During the mediation I was told the girl knew the driver and that rang true.

And there it is. This overwhelming interest and push to investigate and write about Pop Smoke over the last two days is complete and I can rest.

In closing, I tell everyone all the time. The internet is not safe. You never know who your talking to. Be careful what you post and be careful who you surround yourself with. Unfortunately, some things are unpreventable, but we can do our best to avoid a lot if we pay attention and act with common sense.

October 2, 2022, Edition

Thank you for visiting Nooz Buffet, this is the October 2nd 2022 edition of Nooz Now, and I’m your host, Francis Joseph LaManna.

Right now, here on the eastern side of the U.S., it’s about 10:30 AM, and it’s cold and rainy. Honestly, it’s a perfect Sunday. Those who don’t have to go to work can crawl right back into bed, and not feel any guilt!

Let’s get into the news..

🎼: The latest in the world of Hip Hop has us older fans intrigued. It’s a blast from the past as Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre announced the release of their new album, Missionary. I guess we’re switching positions here going from doggy-style to missionary? Either way, the album drops next month and I think it’s incredible that Snoop and Dre are not only still at it, but collaborating like they’ve done so many times earlier in their careers.

Also, Coolio died. He was 59 years old.

πŸ“Ί: I know it’s an older movie, and I’ve seen it at least three times, but Encounter was just that good! I’m not talking about the movie released in 2021, I’m talking about the Encounter that came out in 2018 starring Luke Hemsworth, Anna Hutchinson, and Tom Atkins. What I liked about it was this; they captured all the realistic aspects of a situation of this type. The government was going to extremes to contain what was going on and doing their best to prevent the news of an extraterrestrial intervention from reaching the public. I think it’s amazing how they were able to make this movie in an hour and a half and have it still make sense. Not only that, but they were able to wrap it up with an ending that was sufficient-without appearing rushed or leaving us hanging for more. When you think about the topic of human origin, you can’t help but feel the truth is some wild explanation, but like they say, the truth is stranger than fiction. Even if someone told us that our beginning is exactly what happened in Encounter, most people wouldn’t believe it because they can’t process something so far out of their scope or range of what’s real. And that’s exactly what makes this story so believable. I gave Encounter 5 out of 5 clapboards!

Movie: Encounter

Release Date: 12/09/2018

Starring: Luke Hemsworth, Anna Hutchinson, and Tom Atkins

πŸ’¦: Pennsylvania’s Lehigh River, for those who don’t know, feeds into the Delaware River. It’s hard to even report this but the water of the Lehigh River ranked in the top 34 containing chemicals linked to cancer. Also, the Lehigh River is ranked 9th, as in the 9th most polluted body of water in the country. C’mon people, let’s take care of our water.

πŸŒ’: Our Moon is 6.7 days old! It’s a waxing crescent now, but it will reach full illumination on October 9th. Currently, the moon is in the astrological sign of Capricorn, and Capricorn is in the second house. Consistency and not giving up are essential if you would like obtain objects of desire. The key here is not giving up. When you’re knocked down, you must get up, if you’re distracted, you must refocus, and if someone slows you down, you have to get back up to speed. Slow and steady progress is exactly what’s called for here, and Saturn reminds us to remain reserved when it comes to communication. Not everyone needs to know your business, and right now, it would probably be best for you not to say anything until you get whatever it is you want. In other words, don’t say, “I’m going to buy a house,” say, “I just bought a house.” Good energy often gets contaminated with negativity and envy. Did you ever notice whenever you share something you’re about to do, it doesn’t work out the way you want? Keep it to yourself until it’s over.

🏈: During the NFL game between the Minnesota Vikings and the New Orleans Saints, which took place in London, Lewis Cine, the Vikings Safety, was rushed to the hospital after suffering an injury to his lower left leg.

🀣: IDK I think this is funny. For those who are into fashion, I’m starting to see this emergence of clothes that appear dirty, worn, and something like a peasant would wear around town in the 1400’s in Scotland while he was under the king’s rule. Yeah, so that’s what’s in now. French Peasant clothing from the 1400’s.

⚽: A soccer stadium in Indonesia erupted after Arema FC lost 3-2 to Persebaya Surabaya. This is being called one of the world’s worst stadium disasters of all time! 125 people died, and almost 400 were injured.

πŸ’—: Did you ever feel like you loved someone, that you would never ever meet, but you just crushed on that person wishing you could meet them one day?☺ I feel like that now but I won’t reveal who it is.. πŸ˜‰β€ LMAO you’ll be like whaaaaat?

Alright everyone, enjoy the rest of your day. Thank you for visiting Nooz Buffet!

September 23, 2022 Edition

πŸŽ†I knew the 4-year anniversary for N.B. was coming up soon, but I wasn’t sure of the exact date. I’ve been celebrating the entire month of September, but today I received the congratulations notice from WordPress. So, there you go! September 23rd is our official anniversary date.

πŸ†’Yesterday, was the first day of fall, and to be honest, you could feel a change in the atmosphere since at least a week ago here on the eastern side of the U.S. That heavy humid summer air finally broke and gave way for a much cooler and breezy feel. No complaints here! I welcome the Fall season with open arms.

β™ŽHappy birthday to all the Libras. I used to say “happy birthday season,” but that phrase was overused and played out so fast. Now, I just say happy birthday, and it’s just as good. The sun entered Libra yesterday, and currently, it’s on the 1st degree. Libra is a cardinal air sign, and it’s the seventh sign of our zodiac, which means naturally, Libra is home in the 7th House.

Libra is widely known for its symbol, the Scales. The Scales symbolize balance and harmony. Venus, the Goddess of love and beauty is the ruling planet. 6 and 9 are lucky numbers for Libras, and Friday is their lucky day.

Popular Libras: Sean Connery, Jesse James, Cardi B, Rocky Marciano, Sophia Loren, Racquel Welch, Arnold Palmer, Will Smith, Bruce Springsteen, and Usher.

🏈It’s only the 4th week of the 2022 college football season, but this weekend is important. First, we have the battle between two undefeated teams; (5)Clemson is traveling to (21)Wake Forest. You see the rankings there, and both teams are 3-0.

Next, 2-1 Florida will visit 3-0 Tennessee. Florida comes into this game ranked 20th, and Tennessee at number 11, and it’s obviously important for both teams to win this. The Volunteers would like to head into week five with four wins, and a win against the Gators will be quite impressive, but for Florida, it’s a must win. It’s hard to come back from a 2-2 start.

And finally, the Badgers are travelling to Ohio to play the undefeated Buckeyes. Wisconsin is 2-1, and Ohio State is 3-0 and ranked 3rd in the country. It’s a similar situation between these two Big Ten teams like the one we just talked about with Florida and Tennessee. Ohio State wants to continue winning, but Wisconsin needs a win to stay afloat in the conference.

This will be one of those weekends in college football that we’ll look back at six weeks from now and say, “Week 4 was pivotal.” It’s a make or break week and several teams are at the crossroad.

🌘 Our beautiful satellite, the Moon, is lit at 5% tonight. It’s a waning crescent, and in two more days on the night of the 25th, we will have a brand-new moon in Virgo! You couldn’t ask for a better way to start the Fall. With new moon in the sign associated with wheat and the harvest, we’re right in sync!

πŸ“—For those who weren’t aware, Smorgasbord 3 Prophecy and Poverty is complete. This is my third complete manuscript, and I’m still shopping for a publisher. I truly enjoyed writing this one, it’s 60,000 words, and by far, it was the most involving in terms of research. I will keep you in the loop with that, and if you haven’t picked up Smorgasbord A Collection of Thoughts Experiences and Stories, or Smorgasbord 2 Catch Up and Relish, then please do. Both are available in paperback and e-book form.

🌎You’re going to love this. Lets go back to 2020. The American citizens were getting impatient during the Pandemic Lockdowns. Our economy was taking a hit as people were out of work, and small business owners were losing something they spent their entire lives building. The people had enough and took to the streets to protest. We were winning. People from all races and backgrounds were uniting as Americans and exposing the government overreach.

Then, all of a sudden in May, a man named George Floyd gets murdered by 3 police officers. Violence, rioting, and crime plagued the United States for almost the next seven months. Supposedly, that murder took place in Minneapolis, and I say supposedly because a lot of people expressed their opinion that George Floyd was never murdered. It was said, that that murder was a staged event perpetrated by the powers that be to regain control.

A lot of people will say bullshit, but for one, we were a nation that was finally coming together. We finally put aside our differences, united, and took aim at what our government was doing to us. United we stand, divided we fall, and we know the powers that be don’t want a unified America.

Well, two days ago, I watching the music video for Drop The World, a hip hop song by Lil Wayne and Eminem. I saw the video a thousand times. If you haven’t seen the video, there’s what looks a riot going on. A city is in shambles as people are running around frantically. There’s fire and chaos. People are looting and rioting as Bird Man looks down on the city from a safe spot high above the action. Anyway, I notice for the first time two days ago, while Lil Wayne is rapping in the street, the number 621 is displayed behind him. It’s real big too, you can’t miss it.

After doing my own research because I had a feeling, I discovered 621 is the area code for Minneapolis. That song came out in 2009. That was 11 years before the George Floyd riots began in Minneapolis.

So, if you don’t think George Floyd was used in some way to kick start a riot, on purpose, for the purpose of progressing an agenda by an establishment who brings order out of chaos, you might want to reconsider. It’s foreshadowing and predictive programming.

In the song, Lil Wayne said, “I know what they don’t want to tell you. I hope you’re heaven sent and you’re hell proof.

Aright, that about does it for this session of Nooz Now. Thanks for visiting, thanks for reading, and don’t forget to follow us!

As Lil Wayne would say, I’m gonna hop up in my spaceship and leave earth mother fucker! I’m gone!

Good Afternoon! Today is Saturday September 10th, and this is Nooz Now Session 10.

πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ€β€πŸ‘©πŸ»I don’t know, I guess Chelsea Clinton and Ivanka Trump were friends at one time. There are lots of pictures of them laughing it up and having a good old time. When questioned about it, Clinton basically said they weren’t “come over my house and help me figure out my life kind of friends”, but they were friends. Then, all of a sudden, Ivanka, according to Chelsea, went to the Dark Side. IDK what that means, but.. who else would sleep with Chelsea Clinton? πŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈπŸ€£

There’s so much going on in the world of hip hop. Last night, I learned who Little Nas X was, and to my credit for being late on this one, I grew up during the generation when Nas was a rapper so Little Nas X, because of his name, was flying under my radar. Anyway, I wanted to say there are some things he says that I agree with and some, well, I think he’s a little off. Without getting into everything, I did want to say that he does have a point with what he’s saying about men who are gay and black. And that’s because the mainstream for years only popularized being gay with being white. There are certain things people in general have a hard time accepting, and that’s because of the way our culture has been influenced over the years. With black men and hip hop specifically, the image has always been tough, gangster, and all about woman. There is, to an extent, an attempt to control the narrative and continue perpetuating certain images we’ve grown accustomed to seeing. But hey, what we’re seeing here is good. It’s change, it’s breaking through barriers, and it’s changing the culture. Either way, the public is going to be brainwashed, but it’s probably good to change things up once in a while. Keep rockin’!

Yo! WTF is going on with this smash and grab stuff? I’ve been watching videos of young kids walking into liquor stores, electronic stores, supermarkets, 7-11’s, and anywhere else you can think of, and taking whatever they want while destroying the store in the process. I almost felt bad for these store owners because they’re in a terrible situation. No one wants to risk their lives especially if their products are covered under insurance, but they don’t even want to call the cops because according to them, the cops are letting the looters go. What?! No one gets in trouble for theft anymore? Larceny? Grand larceny? I mean, it’s funny to watch sometimes, but what kind of message are we sending our youth if there’s no punishment for breaking the law?

πŸš—Speaking of insurance, what’s going on with car insurance? There are plenty of drivers out here who are experiencing the same thing-frustration and aggravation. There was a time when drivers were rewarded for maintaining a good driving record and avoiding tickets, but now we’re seeing our monthly costs increasing by almost $50 in some cases. Why? Well, I’m going to tell you. The problem is that there are more people than you think who are driving without car insurance and getting into accidents. Of course, because there’s no control over this, good honest people end up paying the price, and it’s getting expensive! SMH!

🏈Today in college football, (24)Tennessee and (17)Pitt is coming up at 3:30 PM, and the kickoff for (20)Kentucky and (12)Florida is at 7:00 tonight. Right now, Ohio State is up on Arkansas State Rd Wolves 31-9, 3qtr., and (1)Alabama and Texas are tied at 10!

Alright everyone, enjoy the rest of your day. Thank you for visiting Nooz Buffet and thank you for checking out Nooz Now Session 10!
