Once

upon

a

time,

women rapped and kept their under garments on and just spit their lyrics.

Only a few pictures of men could get glimpse of a bathing suit  a bra top or  a wardrobe  malfunction but that was it, it would go no further. Lets be clear, I also adore most female rappers in this industry but these are half-naked most of the time because is it so common place these days.

When you are an avid activist of women In the arts, such as myself, you understand  Lil Kim and Mrs. Minaj and message of female expression and empowerment, even if you don’t care for the perception and the molding of the young female minds. They are both beautiful women with a message to women, but not little girls!

However unfortunate  but obvious is that  women have abandoned the life lessons of solidarity and we are culture “Miseducated” but that money will overshadow the power to our people and education of our youth  will make millions these days.

 

The revised rap blue print for women   is  a paradox to the Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill and her foreshadowing on the slut like activity of women that we celebrate and even honor at the Grammys.

Lauryn was cut from a different cloth and opened our ears to self-pride and self- preservation.

Apparently the Hip Hop Nation will not be able to envision another genius who also carried herself like a queen, and not a “Trap Queen.”

 

Back then, a person would not be half-naked every day unless she was a day time hooker.

While we as women and men  should be someway protesting, and demanding fair treatment by men, we are subconsciously every stereotype to “keep” a man.

        Thanks to Snap Chat, Twitter, and  Instigram we are so disillusioned of  what is substantive or superficial?

      No pictures of Queen Latifah‘s big draws or MC Lyte‘s   panties would have been posted all over social media.

We relentlessly speak of Women Empowerment, but that is not what the younger listeners are going to identify with and embrace.

        The message of mental strength is lost with butt shots, mindless sex and  money over anything genuine in this life. We have to nourish our families physically and psychologically

       We don’t comprehended how lost and fake we are in this world and Kendrick Lamar is kicking off that knowledge.

Lauryn Hill foreshadowed our mental and spiritual weakening  and the truth was too scary for her so she escaped her public existence and moved out of the industry.

      Mrs. Hill is the woman who could have been on the level of Nina Simone,but she escaped her surroundings and lost her musical vision in this ever-changing hasty culture.

 

It is challenging to stand up for your self-respect and principles when you are trying to protect your people, usually the backlash comes from  your message from the very people you are trying to empower.

A flirt can be two(macking with two women at the same time) quick with the tongue!

The tongue is the weapon that can destroy visions, unions and your chances.

You can flirt with a bird, and mess up your chance with a Queen.

“Women, we will come and we will go.

When the rain washes you clean, you will know! ” 

It is so  easy to turn into that Instagram Star and “Bathroom Model.”

Key word is “easy.”

 Do you know how many Bathroom models are on Social Media?

They carry plenty of Windex everywhere they go.

I have a bathroom, and a cell phone!
I also have a mind, and that will make a real man stay and a scared boy back away.

It’s game, you have already set yourself to be a Jump Off.

Michelle Obama is not going to take pictures half-naked in a K-Mart bathroom, and upload them like it is a photo shoot for Vogue!  

You have already conveyed where your head is at, and your vacant self-esteem. 

Your body is up for sell for the highest bidder.

You may even have coupons!

I know you will have “Glass Plus,” and your phone charger to make sure no picture moment will be missed.

Even if the photo shoot takes place in a Shell Station Bathroom, there is ass to be sold.

You are falling into the trap, to be taken as a whore and all you really want is Twitter Fame.

You would be surprised about how many beast are waiting, and ready to feast on your soul.

You have already created your reputation, and it is a travesty.

You are so much better than that, and you will fall for a womanizer with false promises.  

He will not take you home to Mama because you made it clear to thousands what you are working with, and it is no secret what’s in your thongs.

I don’t want to take anymore of your time.

Word around town is that Home Depot bathrooms have the best light.  

Where your children at though?

 

Baseball Legend Ernie Banks: Segregation and Baseball***messymandella*** ‘Let’s Play 2!’


 
“Sometimes when I’d hit a home run into the bleachers, I’d imagine the ball being caught by a kid and making his day. Then I’d think, ‘Someday, I might have to ask that kid for a job.’ I can’t imagine any of today’s players needing to ask anybody for a job after baseball.”– Ernie Banks

“You must try to generate happiness within yourself. If you aren’t happy in one place, chances are you won’t be happy anyplace.”-Ernie Banks

 

“Loyalty and friendship, which is to me the same, created all the wealth that I’ve ever thought I’d have.”-Ernie Banks

Unsung -Frankie Knuckles: LGBT Icon And Our Musical Pioneer! ***messymandella***

“While the name Frankie Knuckles may not mean much to some people, it means a whole lot more to a multitude of others around the world. He was a DJ, music producer/remixer, Grammy Award-winner and house music pioneer, but more than that, he was a genuinely nice man and it is not every day that you meet a man like him.

He did not simply play records; he was an evangelist, preaching the virtues of house music to the assembled masses from his DJ console pulpit. He was the DJ that other DJs aspired to be; a man with hits such as Your Love and Tears, who helped to make house music the dominant music of his time.

 
 

We first met in the Nineties, in Ibiza I think, at a time when the house music scene was once again in its ascendancy. He was the “Godfather of House”, the man who had worked with the pop royalty that is Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson. Yet he was extrememly down to earth; there was no Don Corleone-style presence, no big entourage, just Frankie Knuckles.

And over the years nothing really changed. No matter where we saw each other, whether it was in Ibiza or a fleeting meeting at the Winter Music Conference in Miami, Frankie always greeted you with a big smile. And his infectiously warm demeanour spread to everyone he met or was listening to his music.” -personal tribute from
