Get Familiar With Toronto, Canada’s Native, Lisa Banton! ***messymandella***

lisaI receive musical submissions from various states and countries without exception,and that is more than I ever imagined in my lifetime. The submissions are from multiple genres and are from artist from every background which brings the uniqueness of musicians that are coming from a place of promise and genuine talent.New talents that are submitted keep me hopeful for soul music, as in the case of Canada’s, Lisa Banton.
     My ultimate plan is to bring our culture back to the music that is from the heart and struggle and get rid of the studio singers and take the music industry into a positive place. This world is full of thieves and phony contracts and treacherous motives and schemes to destroy your platform and lessen your chances for success. Your gift can be a curse in the hands of the wrong person. Lisa has a gift and and we pray that she stays grounded and captivate all audiences and venture into a fan base in the United States.

     It is mandatory to to associate with names and faces of indie talent and also professional companies that have blessed my movement and it is an honor to have garnered their promise and respect. I show love to artist,because so many artist show love to me.

Top Albums and Songs by Lisa Banton

      When I heard Lisa’s voice,wow,It was pure nostalgia, that 1990’s flavor of soul singers. Lisa reminded me of Faith Evans,Mary J.Blige and Monica, and Brandy’s movement. Lisa’s music is ingeniously constructed and of course her voice appears to be to powerful to come from her.Lisa’s soulful powerhouse voice you hear is originating from a beautiful but petite woman.

        Lisa was instrumental to a personal part in my life. She reminded me God will bring people in your life, with a song or quote, when you are upset or deem a situation as hopeless or just too toxic to deal with it anymore.Lisa advices us to “Let You Go” in this world we will claw,fight bite to rescue someone that should not be a part of our lives and will only cause us agony and chaos, with no regret. Lisa reminds us,that you have to focus on your art and that pain will empower you!

Indie artist have not given up on their promising careers and I refuse to give up on them.
We should pay homage to female musicians that even after being tempted by the obvious double standard of success in the industry that remain dignified and are relying on their voice and inner strength.

Women who are dedicated will encounter naysayers and vultures in the industry that have deceptive plans and will exploit them. Lisa may not currently have the premium media team or promotional street team to announce to the world, “I AM HERE!” but she will because her message is needed and something we miss in music, soul.

I never link my Twitter page to this site messymandella.com but my quality followers have given me a respected platform. I am honored to have Lisa as part of the messymanedella.com family.

Lisa has the authenticity in her voice that you can feel in our darkest moments and in the mist of so much chaos we must remember that your dream can only become a reality with diligence and honesty and a voice that can stand alone. Lisa’s voice is majestic and new music will be released any day now,this EP should be in your ITUNES library as soon as it drops.

Lisa is releasing her EP ‘Lost And Found’ which should be available this month.

Here is a message from Lisa!

“Working out a few more details but I don’t want to wait any longer to share this new music with you all! As the day slowly approaches, take a listen to snippets from the EP! Get familiar, find a favorite and share!”

Lisa reminded me that women all over the world have the strength and courage to heal your heart, through pain but can grow from it and find their own. Thank you, Lisa!

     This is only the beginning of Lisa’s Banton’s musical journey. When it comes to love for soul music and ability to heal you soul, you must focus primarily on your talent and leave the negativity out of your life and tell that toxic person to “Let You Go!”

Thirsty Thursday Sermon: What You Do In The Dark Comes To Light! An Evil South Carolina Cop MURDERED Walter Scott!***messymandella***

 

NEW YORK TIMES
 
A white police officer in North Charleston, S.C., was charged with murder on Tuesday after a video surfaced showing him shooting in the back and killing an apparently unarmed black man while the man ran away.

The officer, Michael T. Slager, 33, said he had feared for his life because the man had taken his stun gun in a scuffle after a traffic stop on Saturday. A video, however, shows the officer firing eight times as the man, Walter L. Scott, 50, fled. The North Charleston mayor announced the state charges at a news conference Tuesday evening.

The shooting came on the heels of high-profile instances of police officers’ using lethal force in New York, Cleveland, Ferguson, Mo., and elsewhere. The deaths have set off a national debate over whether the police are too quick to use force, particularly in cases involving black men.
If a cop shoots someone and that cop is not in immediate danger, shouldn’t paramedics be called to treat the victim, not just more cops? Shouldn’t that be the priority, ensuring that life is saved?”

***messymandella***

You must have a moral compass to navigate yourself in this deceptive world. I am embarrassed to be a native of South Carolina at this moment, and can’t believe that we are soon going to join the same ranks as the other victims that I told myself, were disgraceful people from disgraceful places. We do not deserve the same scrutiny as Ferguson, or do we? What is right is right and what is wrong is wrong! We hold these truths that are self evident and we are obligated for justice for all.

Classic ***messymandella*** Pee Wee Kirkland Dropping Jewels On Your Ass!

         Richard “Pee-Wee” Kirkland is a premier Harlem Legend  because of his business sense and undeniable talent. It doesn’t matter what you have learned in your History classes about a handful of  Black Activist, you had to miss one. The Rucker Park is not only a legend of Harlem but the place where Kareem Abdul Jabar even graced the court.

            Our  “Legends” are missing from the History Books. We as an Urban force must investigate and gather information on  our urban culture, our legends need their stories told, and we need  to past these stories down to the next generation. Numerous people have came through Harlem, after the “Harlem Renaissance.” You will not read about these  African- American men and women in a Southern History Books. These men and women are not considered heros. What makes a hero, and when do we become a legend? Your story has to be told, it will help someone who may have assumed that path would bring them to riches. You can save a life, and money that would be used for that prisoners. You are a hero, if you can stop one girl from selling her body for drugs, or any man from supplying his mother with drugs. Every little action will start positive energy in out communities.

           It is mandatory that I  show love to our “Street Legends.” I am not bigging up the game, because you can’t win from it; but you can learn from it!

            Pee-Wee Kirkland‘s life unfolded but only a few of those moments are on film. Pee Wee’s life and other street stars like Karlton Hines, and Earl “The Goat” Manigault  have their own underworld tragedy’s and choses that solidified their future.  One thing undebatable in the culture is that every man who serves a prison system  could tell you when and where they “got caught slipping.” What  you choose  is the most important factor at that moment, but  short-term gratification will always derail a “Street Legend.”

         Pee-Wee Kirkland  walked through the doors of “The Rucker” gymnasium founded by Holcombe Rucker, “The Rucker” showcases African-American talent in the Harlem and surrounding neighborhoods. Holcombe Rucker  awarded  scholarships to the lower class residents second class citizens because of the color of their skin. In 1969  Pee-Wee Kirkland had a chance to play for the “Chicago Bulls” but he could not leave the Drug Game. When they discussed signing benefits and the contractual agreement he wasn’t interested.

         Pee-Wee was in “The Game”  and told the Chicago Bulls recruiter that he had more money in his pocket right now than that $15,000 they were offering. So, he shot down a reality for a street dream. Pee Wee became a Basketball star, but it was behind the Prison walls and mandatory rules with no freedom that he had at “Rucker Park.” In prison he scored 465 points in 8 games, just imagine if he would have signed that Bulls Contract…

According To Wikipedia, Pee-Wee   played in prison from 1981 to 1988 in La Tuna, Texas. In the Anthracite Basketball League of central Pennsylvania he scored 100 and 135 points in one game.[5]

After you watch this video you will see that Pee- Wee Kirkland is telling you exactly what I have been preaching  since the beginning of messymandella.com.

We have to change our own destiny and stop creating havoc in our  own communities.

Freedom came once Pee-Wee, as a man, matured and used self evaluation and acceptance to move forward.

I don’t care who you are and what you are doing; I believe in you and apparently so does Pee-Wee Kirkland.

Maybe you don’t want to hear the message from a prissy, petite light-bright chick?

Maybe you will  accept the message from someone who knows what we are into now, and how we are putting fuel  to our personal and cultural inevitable destruction.

 We have to make change!

I had look at myself, I judged people who have unsavory titles as automatic enemies before even learning who they were. I am not perfect, I matured in the process. Once you continuously demean people who pushes them further into destruction. I learned that and regret that, and now is the time for us to work together to improve our situation. We have too many people with commissary books, and unplanned baby mama drama.

We have to do better or the Civil Rights Movement wasn’t even worth the fight!

Allegedly, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s Family Admits ‘Reality Is Sinking In’***messymandella***

           After news broke earlier this week that the 22-year-old had been moved from Emroy University hospital to a rehabilitation facility in Atlanta, sources reveal to PEOPLE that the family had actually wanted to move Bobbi Kristina out of the hospital earlier, but her grief-stricken father Bobby Brown had delayed the decision.

 

“This hasn’t gotten any easier for him,” the source says of Bobby. “It has gotten harder. He really thought she’d be better by now, that there would be some change.

There hasn’t been any sign of improvement since this happened.”

Sources had previously revealed to PEOPLE that the 46-year-old singer was trying to keep “as positive as possible” about the condition of his only daughter with the late Whitney Houston. “He’s going to give her every chance to fight for her life.”

Indeed, Bobbi Kristina’s family has tried to remain positive, but now “reality is really sinking in,” the source reveals.

“We spent the first month in shock, you know? Like, ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe that this happened.’ But now we’ve had a lot of time to get used to it.”

The source also admits that while the “family doesn’t always see eye-to-eye,” it’s clear that Bobby is in charge of what happens to his daughter.” quote from Maria Mercedes Lara

I wish and pray Bobbi Kristina will finally have her story told through her eyes, without the tabloid scandal.She deserves people in her life, that have her best interest,and not only want her inheritance.

Whitney Houston lived a life that humbled most, and destroyed her in the end. Her daughter couldn’t seem to find her place in this world. Now she won’t have to, the families ALLEGEDLY will let Bobbi Kristina Brown pass away.

Now,it is a what if situation,but we are too hurt inside. This little girl had two troubled parents with addictions, but they loved her so much. No one could ever dispute the admiration of their little girl, Bobbi Kristina Brown.

 

We must tell the truth about Whitney Houston. I cried, because I was in her situation,not drugs but with someone who would play the part of a different person to the public.

      Love is standing by, and this will be a process to bury all of the family drama, but  you can not win if the spirit wants to be free.
 
No amount of medicine or electrical device will ever be stronger than the will to live. She fought, and no matter what a machine reads, that soul may just want to be reunited with her mama.
 
Some actions are too obvious to overlook, and sympathy and inner guilt and failed moments are not will not be easy, when the Houston and Brown family are still divided. What if’s are not going to bring her out of this.

 
 
No matter what was said on camera we must look in the eyes of the truth.
 
Her  anguish and  privacy to mourn is not based on a calender or when we think she should be finished within her personal bereavement process.
 
Putting on a brave face can take a toll on anyone, that lost their momma and best friend, she still could not listen to her mother’s music at times.

 
The family will spend eternity reading a machine to , but if the machine is the only thing that is keeping her here, she is already gone.
 
We must give this family privacy, and not overlook the life of Bobbi Kristina Brown to give weigh to tabloid speculation, but now that speculation may be facts!

Some are already putting light on an addiction and scene of the crim, just for high viewership.

Imagine, if it was your daughter, let her family deal in peace and they are surely inconsolable, leave that speculation behind, for now.


Give Bobbi respect, and the Houston and Brown family  deserve your prayers and love.

No doubt they need it, but they will feel the love. I wish she knew we all wanted her to pull through this  tragedy and we  loved her then.

We want to send flowers and love when it is too late, when that may be all the victim wanted the entire time.

“I’ve been alone in my shit for the longest
Snakes sliding in the street
Mama taught me how to not be like the bodies lying in them
Pigs, riding in ’em
I’m a target so it’s hard to even eye me in ’em
If he ain’t dying for me, then I ain’t riding with him
There’s no time for that
Making sure my man wallet’s straight like a collar
When you eyeing that
Thinking ’bout my grandmama, find a bottle
I’mma wallow when I lie in that
I just want my time and my mind intact
When they both gone, you can’t buy ’em back…”
 

 
“Never getting out of hand, steady handling my job
Time damaging my ties
Who turn to get up? Get dude turned to dinner quick
You circus ni**as, you turning into tricks
I was making waves, you was surfing in ’em
Dealing with the stomach pains just from birthing ni**as’ sh*t
Cut the grass off the surface
Pray the lawnmower blade catch the back of a serpent n**ga sh*t
B*tch”
