Women With Curves!***messymandella***

Billie Holiday “Strange Fruit” And Julia Holter – “World” ***messymandella***

           Have you ever been hypnotized or lifted up to another place or captivated by an original voice? With technology anyone can auto tune a singing voice. You can’t auto-tune talent. Two women with 2 different backgrounds and decades of musical separation, intrigue those that believe a unique voice is not something you can create in a studio. A voice is a gift, or as in this case, a warning to the world of confusion, and the state of the world we live in . You hear  a painful, but hauntingly beautiful  voice, but were you also listening?

                   If you have not had a chance to experience this phenomenal,  these two women will definitely relax and trouble you because of the heart-felt pain, but elaborate similarities of  their voices.




The music of the late Billie Holiday, still transforms historians because of the pain.
The demons that tortured Billie,  in her destructive life also tortured the late Whitney Houston. Yes, life plaques celebrities with beauty and talent even if it is more than  40 years apart.

Artist will usually have one addictive down-fall,  because their talent is too powerful to contain, and even in the case of Whitney, Cissy said her talent scared her.

I also deal with that  the feeling, of wondering ,”Why am I seeing this, How can I create this? Why am I telling these stories?”

       That melancholy  voice transforms the electricity in your  body, and it can’t escape you. You can imagine standing where Billie Holiday stood, when she first saw that body swinging from that tree. It is history, pain and struggle and a gift  that was merely too intense for one person to contain.


       Julia’s  Holters’ voice might be the last sound you hear before you leave this earthly life. It is a heavenly but depressing voice that haunts most. It  is time to listen and judge the similarities in this songs and the beauty of both women, with different backgrounds, decades, and musical training that captivate any audience. Julia will leave her own space in history. 

         We also know some of the best voices of our time, are barely heard and sadly will not reach that well deserved pinnacle of success. Hip Hip would not be anything, without samples, musical exploration and a vast appreciation to open your mind, and step away from the mundane. Create your own sound, and make your name and voice that next generations will appreciate. Billie Holiday died in 1959 and we still appreciate the gift and curse that she left behind.

You know when you hear Julia’s voice, that this will be the last song you will sing,or is it? What happened?

Never  have I heard a voice so transforming, as this Domino Recording Artist.

Is she telling you good-bye, for good?

What is you trying to escape?

Julia Holter appears to be  possessed with the spirits of Billie Holiday and Karen Carpenter

Listen for yourself! 

Meet Domino Recording Artist, Julia Holter!

Long Live Lady Day!

biggie_smalls_edited_by_grudge03-d2xzuxn

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

I remember seeing all that glass, and that Suburban Truck riddled with bullets.

Conspiracy after conspiracy will always plaque his demise and haunt his fans.

We may never knew who took his life!

He will forever be quoted as 1 of the Top 5.

The King of New York died on March 9!

Kendrick Lamar needs to “Control” himself and go somewhere and sit down!

How in the Google Map Hell, can you be “The King Of New York” and you from Compton, California?

Christopher Wallace, we celebrate the music and your dreamed deferred and complicated life in film and in music.

Legends may die, but the legacy will only educate us and guide us in our lives, to not share his fate.

Christopher’s rap impact will never be duplicated, he wasn’t an Angel but he lived with knowledge of self!

Hip Hop  Lives Forever, even if “The King Of New York” died 20 years ago!

Hey, never mind what haters say
Ignore ’em ’til they fade away
Amazin’ they ungrateful
After all the game I gave away
Safe to say I paved the way
For you cats to get paid today
You’d still be wastin’ days away
Now had I never saved the day
Consider them my protege
Homage I think they should pay
Instead of bein’ gracious
They violate in a major way
I never been a hater
Still I love ’em in a crazy way
Some say they sold the yay’
You know they couldn’t get work on Labor Day
It ain’t that black and white
It has an area the shade of gray


 
 
 
 

WE need to locate monica bowie and bring her home!***messymandella***


 
          Monica Bowie a kidnapped victim, was abducted from  her residence in Atlanta, Georgia. She was a resident of the Berkshire Apartments which are located in a  middle class  neighborhood that catered to upcoming professionals.

       Monica Bowie born in Pennsylvania, grew up as an independent woman and her stunning looks were also used to her advantage. Monica at one time was also a stripper for a few months, at the “Blue Flame” on the western side of Atlanta. She was last scene in a  parking garage in Atlanta, Georgia and was reported missing on July 5, 2007.

        Psychic Sisters Suzanne and Jean Vincent went to Atlanta with Monica’s family to see if they could get psychic impressions from the crime scene and to bring Monica home. Now the disappearance is considered a cold case by some and the mainstream media will not aid in her recovery.
 

 
If we examine her last 24 hours and investigate and help her family and  friends and “Find Our Missing”maybe we will uncover the case. We need to  locate Monica Bowie, to bring her family closure. It is time to extend the families pleas and give them a opportunity for justice, and Monica’s redemption.

 

deaths in chiraq- just the rappers…***messymandella***this message is ONLY for the young that still have a chance


You understand that citizens in Chiraq are in desperation for a soul-searching purpose and national support in the killing fields caused by the youth. The adults are prisoners of their own homes and the roles are reversed in a desolate life of deference. Conformity is the easiest manipulator of this violence and drilling movement. Again, Chicago, is not an isolated city, that should be blamed for all the deaths of upcoming rappers. We know “men lie, women lie, but numbers don’t lie.” Hopefully, watching their music at your leisure, and looking into your hearts could spare the life of one, little boy or girl.

Hip Hop has not always had a history of gang violence, but as a culture we are loosing so many young men in regards to statements made in a studio. Sadly, before these hip hop hopefuls seldom make history, but they always make an obituary.
We also are surprisingly under the impression that the war in this sate will just go away, if we focus on other issues.

NO,

We are loosing numerous young men and women in babies, and they will never get media attention because a white man didn’t pull the trigger!

The deaths in Chiraq are in tune with any other war and genocide. What about the innocent people who lose their babies to stray bullets? Rent a gymnasium, bring all your guns and bullets there and settle your beefs there. Stop ending lives of people who are actually want to uplift their people and not destroy them. Some parents are unable there for their children. Some parents are in factories and restaurants 9-5 and dedicated to working extra hours to build a promising life.
Why should their children feel obligated to choose a gang just to survive?

Gangs and their Tyshawn Lee, and that baby has pictures in his little school uniform and book bag. If you could still pick up a gun in Chiraq after that baby’s life, you are inhumane and have numbed yourself of human decency. Yes, you need those guns to survive, but this is a mental war.

You are surviving in the cesspool that you created, and the elders around you have no doubt demonstrated.
I look around where I am living, but know that the same gang violence is 15 miles away and purposely avoid those areas.

Why should I have to avoid places with people who have the same ethical background and color of skin of me? If you are not a violent person, you are afraid that you will encounter violence in certain clubs, bars and neighborhoods.

What if you only have that place in Chiraq? Parents have a extremely difficult time watching their children or even planning for the future.
Activist are murdered for trying to helping their community. It is easier to stand back and observe the destruction of the culture, but harder to speak up.

I love my people of all races, but some wealthy and terrified individuals will assume that all black women only want baby daddy’s but will raise families from the government but still keep getting pregnant by the same dead beat. I didn’t grow up like that, I watched my friends being raised by their aunts and grandmother’s because some parents could not provide.

ALL OF US ARE NOT LIKE THAT!

ALL OF US ARE NOT CARRYING A GUN EVERY WEEKEND JUST IN CASE…

Those damn stereotypes, will always follow people of color if we increase that image in society. The violence increases and the stereotypes gain a larger audience, and segregates demographics, due to false impressions and the actions of a few.

I pray and cry for our youth to understand that songs don’t have to be examples on how to live. I listen to a song, and don’t live the songs, but I love hip hop.

The youth understand that conscious rappers do not garner airplay. The gang culture has swept into hip hop, but it was never supposed to be intertwined. We had songs that dealt with the betterment of our children. We have forgotten, that hip hop in the 1980’s and 1990’s embraced love. NWA came along and a few others and we assumed the worse we treated our people, the better the rapper and bigger the sales.

Now, what do we have? Our views and misrepresentations of our people are integral in this list.
In Chiraq, We have a list of rappers in one area, that never even made it to the radio or the age of legal consent. Watching something so beautiful turn into something used to end lives, I wonder do these rappers even appreciate hip hop?
Do they understand, dropping bodies will not make you “real” but it will make you “real dead?”

The list of 2015 dead Chiraquians will most definitely be just as saddening. Most people have never heard of these people. If you visit YouTube to watch their videos, you will be sickened by their talent and promise that never had a chance to flourish.
Why kill each other below that is not the only way to get money in the industry? That doesn’t make you a rapper. Adele, Oprah and Beyoncé aren’t killing people to garner fans or become millionaires, there are other ways to become successful. Killing makes you a self-hating person.
You will not find more than 20 recent videos in mainstream that don’t brag about gang affiliation. We are still mentally enslaved and it is easier to ignore the truth. I can separate the truth and not fall in the trap, but the people in this video (above) never had a chance to separate the gimmick from the art form.

Will you?

 

Most read today! someone help bring closure for william “fernando” barnes aka dJ nando!***messymandella***


 
Rapper DJ Nando, a popular Strip Club DJ, was shot execution style outside of his dwelling. Some coward pulled the trigger from behind, and released the bullet into the back of his head, without any afterthought.We have lost faith in humanity and in each other and respect for our people. Whomever ended William Fernando Barnes life doesn’t know they are committing the exact vicious hatred as the Klu,Klux Klan. One less minority man breathing, or one that will end behind bars for one action that could have been avoided with self-control and communication.
 
        DJ Nando only spent 38 Years on this earth. That is a tragedy, but he lived longer that Lil Snupe, Lil JoJo, and Lil Phat also potentially celebrities cut down before their career catapulted into mainstream!
 
  Once again, Any coward that shoots you in the back of the head is not man enough to even confront you and has no regard for human life. While DJ Nando was leaving his show at approximately 3:00 A.M his life was stolen without any regard. No fight or argument took place, just him walking and a bullet to the back of his head.
 
nan
 
        Now when women go to bed at night they don’t worry if a man is cheating, they are frightened when they don’t receive  that text or tweet just to make sure that he is still breathing. Real Talk!
 
     We have created our own jungle and the worms have no loyalty or ability to understand why these incidents should not happen.
 
         According to all accounts, DJ Nando appeared to have the qualities of a positive person that enjoyed his work as a DJ, since he has been a part of the DJ scene for at least 12 years. Rapper DJ Nando already solidified his place in the DJ world, but that wasn’t enough! He wanted other DJ’s to receive national recognition in the Art and gain prominence in  his community!
 
         This initiative and determination birthed the movement of him and his peers as a DJ collective the “Coalition DJ’s.” If a man reached his pentacle of success but would still mentor other DJ’s that in itself gives the impression of a humble, free-hearted soul.
 
      This blood bath and Roster of men in the Urban scene is increasing at a steady rate. The families of the departed are  left wondering, “What could have been?” This killing is a harmful deterioration for our community. These are   the incidents that  FOX News feeds into and biasly enjoy reporting.  Our accomplishments are overshadowed by Animal-like instincts of a few with no sense of respect.
 
        
 
          I can’t type fast enough to send my condolences for all of our street soldiers, that are fighting a make belief self-propelled war. This war is  just reverse racism with the ending plan of the extinction of the minority man. Women are having to get their children dressed to see daddy through the glass window, or before the casket door closes.
 

 
I did not ever meet this DJ, and sadly never will…
 
      I love our men and if no one else cares enough in the media to demonstrate their importance. I will remember and announce their accolades and  contributions in life!
 
I pray for his family and friends.
 
Everyone has a story, and  I  believe he was more than just a random shooting story in the news.
 
Someone is in agony and distress right now over the end of DJ NAndo’s life and I am hugging them in spirit!
 
R.I.P.
 
 I pray for justice and vindication in this  life for the victim. It is only January 14th, 2014 and Doe B, Mazarati Fox, and DJ Nando are no longer alive.
 
Sorry for the lost to anyone that knew William, but the News Outlets will give an emotionless account of the events of that night. To some in the news world he was just another minority shot and murdered.
 
He deserves better than that, and his life meant something to someone.
 
Life is so precious, and fleeting especially for a coward that can’t even look a man in his eyes before he ends his unfinished life.
 
Praying for an ending to this foolishness!
 
Love Through Tears
 
***messymandella***was your family member, wouldn’t you demand justice? In our community, once the news story has died, so is the interest and the prioritiy is lessened by the month, and we cry and mourn but after out bereavement, we find another issue to invest in a a new cause to focus on and solve,and we forget.
 
           We also  get invested in another  topic to bring awareness to  and also utilize for out own self-advancement .
 
           The news doesn’t allot valuable time on Cold Cases. Someone in our county  has insight on his untimely demise. 
 
          He is six feet deep, and someone  decided to steal his life. 
 
     He can’t fight for himself. We must let them know you can’t just murder your brothers and sisters and not expect karma and physical justice. Don’t give up on your loved ones because the  bias media forgot about them, just pretend it was your cousin and he was shot in his head, by a coward after returning home. You would want justice!
 
           Justice would not only be required, it would be only stipulation let’s make it mandatory, so the coward can receive their own justice and punishment.

 
 

 
 

Busta- Juvenile “Makein’ It Clap In Nolia!” ***messymandella***


 

 

Shyheim-On And On ***messymandella***

The drug epidemic broke us completely down, and even if everyone stopped slinging crack now the damage has caused prisons to be flooded, and caskets to be lowered.

Dreams were deterred and the families lost daddy, and the family structure to the game.

Now, we can attempt to bring our communities back, but the force and the poison tested on us will not go away, and once again it was not administered by us,but we suffer.

Who wanted to ruin our society? 

In 1984 Government officials could not segregate us legally.

They used the crack epidemic to  segregate us chemically and mentally,and their mission was a success.

Can the black families comprehend that it is not weak to be home with their  babies.

I guess it us easier said than done. In our culture people can be together for 8 years with no wedding in site. Meaning they are unconsiously not committed to their loved one.

When it is so easy to walk away, our children receive less. Don’t stay JUST BECAUSE OF THE CHILDREN. However,If you look into our history after the Crack Epidemic moms and dad’s were pitted against each other.

In some instances the boyfriend supplied the girlfriend or wife with the crack.

Our sons took note and realized that any reason to leave, is better than any reason to stay.

The fathers that sacrificed for their seeds, are raising grateful children that admire their effort and unconditional love.

Check out the statistics on our men,and how many are currently incarcerated that never had fathers in their life.

Some are currently in prison with their fathers.I understand that some of these men want better when they are released, their felony records will not get them a salary  and a 401 K. The Crack Epidemic instrumented in the death of the black families.

That is another generation of boys watching and learning from the downfall of the 80’s and they are being borned 5 years later.  We marched in the 60’s and 70’s and our  people had a sense of pride.

We must bring unity and respect back to our  culture.

It is embarrassing when men and women with no means of support have 13 children that they can not take care of, and the babies are loosing in the progress.

Dad and mom need to stand together and motivate our children to  be better. This video is from 1994, and look around and tell me how far we have truly come?
