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!

Your Spirit***messymandella***Jamie Woon

When you ready to say the last rights to that past life, you will mature. 

Every think you do in the dark comes to light; and you can wear your sin on your sleeve. Why put yourself in harm’s way? We all assume we will beat the odds. NO ONE WINS THE GAME. Alpo Martinez. Rich Porter, Pistol Pete, Wayne Perry, Griselda Blanco, and Karlton Hines found that out and are either 6 feet deep or behind bars. 

You are never smarter than Karma. You  challenge morality everyday, and you get messages and signs to change, but those evil spirits around you are too strong to fight. You can ignore your morality,but not your karma 

T.I. said in “Live Your Life.”

Unhappy with the riches ’cause you’re piss poor morally. Ignorin’ all prior advice and forewarnin’ And we mighty full of ourselves all of a sudden, aren’t we?

Message for us all. We have to ask ourselves can you accomplish both? You can! You do not have to be piss poor morally, just to  gain riches. You can’t enjoy your riches, if you are always looking over your shoulders in fear, and the thought of revenge.

LL Cool J ***messymandella***Around The Way Girl!

        Women we have a problem admitting our ages. Beauty gets better with age, ask Nia Long and Stacey Dash, and Angela Bassett. These women defy age, and prove that age is a state of mind. So if you don’t want to admit your age, let’s just nod if you remember wearing one strap down on your denim suspenders. Do you remember when men wore vest as shirts and baseball hats backwards? How many recall the “Mood Lipstick?” That was a scam because the lipstick was purple on everybody! Can you remember wearing the big earrings with the do it yourself bang and gelling up that baby hair? What about the leather vest and shorts that were “hawt” in the Summer? Camay soap was cool, and some girls wanted to use it  because of this song. I myself, was very young, but I still remember.  Well, if you do get a little nostalgic that is understandable. Think about the practiced dance routines, that you spent hours perfecting with your dance partner here is the video for you.

          This video recorded on October 7,1990 is a reminder of the earliest video cinematography we utilized and how that has grown in the later years. Check out the cheesy backdrop. History and Hip Hop will always be intertwined. LL Cool J is never mentioned as one of the best rappers of all time. The Top 10 list usually list people after 1995. Well, LL Cool J is one of the best and his Kango Hat will always be a part of Hip Hop Fashion, and his trademark. Rap music evolves, and  early fashions of the 90’s and the atmosphere have changed.  Hip- Hop before we were called bitches and hoes. Got to love it!
