Happy Birthday Biggie, May Your Death Be A Warning!***messymandella***

I think sometimes in urban neighborhoods, we think it is cool to be in a casket.

Can you remember where you were when Christopher Wallace (May 21, 1972 – March 9, 1997) was Murdered? 

How many dummies in prison from gun charges, and they never got a chance to fire them?

I don’t go to the grocery store with my gun, and I don’t hang around fools that can get me shot.

If I was hit by a bullet it  could be someone with the same color of skin as mine.

Get caught “lacking” at a job fair, and stop being stupid.

Pondering Minds What To Know:

Have you ever heard of someone shooting at a Dolly Parton, or Pattie Labelle  concert? 

FYI, you are not a soldier unless you are fighting in Iraq, or any other country for our freedom.

You are not a soldier, when you kill for your own greed.

 

Biggie Small’s never had a chance to become a grandfather, will you?

Daley – Those Who Wait (Secret Show Live) ***messymandella***

 
 
At 24 Years Old, Daley convinced the genre of Indie Soul,that he was worth the attention with his voice and stylization, years ago.
 
 
Daley  has that unique soulful voice that Neo-Soul truly requires for its unique, retro genuine taste. 
 
 
Lovers of soul should advance this musical form and appreciate those in the game, that are training and paying homage to the legends in this musical game.
 
 
We always entertain what is Pop, but this is a diversion from the mainstream and considered by some as  “Grown Folks Music.” 
 
 
Currently,  Daley is creating music in the studio with Pharelle Williams. Their new collaborations undoubtedly will spring forth some buzz-worthy support in the ignored music genre of Neo-Soul. Daley is a breath of fresh air in music industry and he has the chance to reap benefits in regards to his purchasing power and ability to sustain,in this music industry but stay Daley.
 
 
Daley’s voice is reminiscent to legends of soul and sopranos forefathers, such as   Prince, and Maxwell, but make no mistake about it, Daley’s voice remains his own.
 
 
Daley, still embodies soul, and classic Rhythm and Blues and his fluent song style, that no one will be able to compete with his sound based, on his determination and struggle in this industry.
 
 
Daley’s music is covered with the inner strength and narrative truth in his voice that relaxes your spirit.
 
Daley, reminds us that you plant your seeds to grow, and don’t just worry about the money now!
 
 
Blessings and Greatness comes to “Those Who Wait.”

The Death Of Chiraq’s Gakira “K.I.” Barnes: Myth Or A True Assassin? ***messymandella***

 
 
   

As the hood legend goes, Chicago once had a little girl named “Lil Snoop” who may have killed at least twenty people.

She lost her brother to gun violence and paced those same Chicago streets with a vengeance, or did she?
 
 

 
 

When you hear her mother sob about both of her children dying to violence, you wonder how does this happen?


I have a question for mother’s that have lost their children to this Violence, you don’t wonder why your child has new clothes that you can’t afford?


If your son or daughter is wearing Gucci, Prada,  LaCoste, Fendi and you are wearing Wal-Marts Faded Glory, that doesn’t make you wonder where a 15-year-old, with no job received the money to buy these high dollar items?


It is never a mother’s fault of her child’s death, but shouldn’t it be a tidbit of a  sign that maybe your child is not spending his afternoons at the local library? 

Shouldn’t this be a  clue that your child and their friends are living a dangerous life?

K.I. went into a violent tail spin that would not let her rest until she avenged her brother’s death.

Now, did she live a short life of crime or was she just a victim of a false reputation, and a chomped up legend?
We may never have the complete truth about this female teenage assassin due to the fact that she is now with her brother,  but in a casket of her own.

Now, she may be respected, and bragged about like someone with a high credibility,  but that did not stop the gun shots from entering her little body, and ultimately revoking her chance  at  life.
K.I.  was shot nine times in the throat, face and everywhere else…
Her blood was left splattered with her lifeless on the step….

Was her death retaliation or just someone else trying to earn stripes in the game?

Either way here is a brief look at the Chiraq’s late soldier in an invisible war,Gakira K.I” Barnes.
