Paul Revere (song)

"Paul Revere" is a song by American hip hop group Beastie Boys, released as the third single from their debut album Licensed to Ill. It was written by Adam Horovitz, Joseph Simmons, Darryl McDaniels, Rick Rubin, it was produced by the Beastie Boys. The song tells a fictional story of. Adam Horovitz told how the song evolved from an incident when the Beastie Boys were waiting outside a recording studio for Run-D. M. C; when Joseph Simmons came running down the street screaming incoherently. When he reached the Beastie Boys, he said "Here's a little story I got to tell...". After much confusion, Simmons stated "THAT's the song"; the band worked on it from there. In 2007, an artist called Kia Shine released a single called "Krispy" with a similar beat, raising questions about copyright infringement. Mike D remembered how the group played around with a 808 drum machine during the Ill sessions and Adam Yauch asked what the tracks would sound like if the beats were played backwards. “Run from Run-D. M. C. was there, he was like, ’Man, this is crazy.’ But Yauch recorded this beat, bounced it to another tape, flipped it around — this is pre-digital sampling — and bounced it back to the multi-track tape,” he said.

“The reversed beat became ’Paul Revere.’ Yauch saw this thing we couldn’t see — and he killed it.” The song tells a fictional story of how Adrock, Mike D, MCA first met. Adrock describes riding through the desert on a horse named Paul Revere the name of a horse in the musical Guys and Dolls, while he is on the run from the police, he runs into MCA. When Adrock refuses, MCA pulls a gun on him and says, "You got two choices of what you can do... I can blow you away or you can ride with me." Adrock agrees, saying that he'll go if they can get to the border because "The sheriff's after me for what I did to his daughter". The two ride to a bar and sit down next to Mike D, who tells them he's planning to rob the place, he pulls out his guns and shoots them in the air, telling the people in the bar, "Your cash and your jewelry is what I expect!" MCA and Adrock help Mike D escape with the money and jewelry, first causing a distraction and helping him carry the stolen goods out, along with "Two girlies and a beer that's cold".

Lyrics from the song are referenced in several rap songs by other artists. Cypress Hill did a cover of the song called "Busted in the Hood" on their album Till Death Do Us Part, with the lyrics changed to be about getting arrested for drug-dealing; the lyrics are referenced several times in the song "Bad Guys Always Die" on the soundtrack to the film Wild Wild West. It was covered by Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon as part of their "History of Rap" medley. A cover was done by the Lobos Riders in a country styling on the album Alcoholiday. A genre-bending cover was played by swing band The Asylum Street Spankers on their album Mercurial; the Disco Biscuits debuted their cover of Paul Revere on New Year's Eve 2006 to open the second set. They continued to play it several times throughout 2007 and 2008. N. W. A liked the song so much that they used to perform it with dirty lyrics early in their career, according to Ice Cube.

Lambda Psi Delta

Lambda Psi Delta Sorority, Inc. is an independent, community service-based Greek-lettered sorority founded on March 9, 1997. Lambda Psi Delta was established by a group of women known as the "9 Black Diamonds", on the basis of true sisterhood and community outreach, is a founding member of the National Multicultural Greek Council. Lambda Psi Delta Sorority, Inc. was founded on March 9, 1997 in Connecticut by Nine Strong Women part of a Latina sorority. These women pledged to be a part of an organization that would bring them sisterhood, opportunities for service, academic achievement and personal growth among other things; as their time in that organization grew, they found that sorority to be lacking in its internal structure, constricting in its outlets for service, limiting in its definitions of sisterhood and cultural identity and fraught with internal and external strife. After numerous years of struggling to work through these many issues, they realized their vision of a sisterhood was in direct contradiction with that of the original organization.

So they made the decision to leave. After looking around at other sororities, they noticed that what they envisioned was nowhere in sight. So they saw what was their mission: to create an organization whose primary goal was the upliftment and empowerment of women and their communities through intellectual and leadership development and cultural awareness, they sought to create an organization where each woman could fight for her own cause in her own community, at the same time uniting all other communities to support and aid in the struggle through the works of the sorority. And so, Lambda Psi Delta, a multi-ethnic, service based organization, for women by women and about women, was formed to give all women a chance to experience true sisterhood. Over 15 years Lambda Psi Delta is still going strong and gaining recognition for the works done on both the national and chapter level; some of which include winning academic and Greek-related awards on the respective campuses of the undergrad chapters, spearheading the founding of the National Multicultural Greek Council alongside Mu Sigma Upsilon.

Lambda Psi Delta Sorority, Inc. is growing to having undergraduate chapters in various states such as Florida, New Jersey, Connecticut and Louisiana as well as two graduate chapters. Their principle purposes are to engage in the upliftment and empowerment of women and our communities through intellectual development, cultural awareness, leadership, to engage in educational, cultural and public service activities that express and support such concerns. Although they work in minority communities, our members hail from a variety of backgrounds including African, Afro-American, Anglo-American, Chilean, Colombian, Costa Rican, East Indian, El Salvadoran, Filipino, Greek, Hungarian, Iranian, Jamaican, Mexican, Palestinian, Puerto Rican, Somalian, West Indian, Transylvanian and many others, devote their energies to a number of different causes that support and promote our Five Tenets; the sorority's Five Tenets are: Intellectual Development Empowerment of Women Leadership Cultural Awareness Upliftment of the CommunityThe Five Tenets serve as the foundation for the sorority's National Public and Political Service Program efforts and provide the ideals and virtues for which each soror strives in her personal and professional life.

Through the Five Tenets and the virtues of true sisterhood and community outreach, Lambda Psi Delta strives to educate its surrounding communities and empower the community to make enhancements for the betterment of all. Lambda Psi Delta was founded by nine strong, dynamic women who are referred to as the Nine Black Diamonds, they are: Esq.. Irma Beatriz Cordero, MSW Margarita Martis Navarro Isabel Veguilla, MFA Paula Arputhasamy Ladd, Esq. Laura Elaine Gilbert Karina Tejeda Marina Lori Franzoni, N. D. Denise J. Pipersburgh, Esq. One of the sorority’s governing principles is a fundamental commitment to empowering and uplifting the larger community, as well as marked political involvement in order to initiate and promote political change; the sorority's commitment to the goals stems from the belief that, through personal initiative, the members may, accomplish great advances at all levels within their communities. The Lambda Psi Delta Service Program is aimed at encouraging and promoting service and contributions that pertain to its Five Tenets in two key ways: Public service, which refers to our engagement and support of public service initiatives that benefit and uplift women and our communities.

A key aspect of the sorority’s National Public and Political Service Program is the initiation and implementation of the sorority’s own service programs in which its sorors and chapters engage in as part of its commitment to the community. Such commitment to original programming is evidenced by such programs as: the LPsiD College Resource Center; the sorority's National Public and Political Service Program is designed around its Focus Initiatives, which address timely public and political service concerns within our communities. The current Focus Initiatives include: and Multiple Sclerosis Research and Development, STEP UP – SPEAK OUT! Bullying Awareness and Prevention Campaign – a partnership initiative with Omega Phi Chi S
