Kicking Gothic Futuristics With Ramellzee + DJ Grand Master Flash ***messymandella*** #HappyBirthdayHiphop

      Ramellzee was the “Letter Eraser” that decided to reconstruct his own language and cultural adaptation to every day words. He cultivated  his  own alphabetic by erasing the letters and sounds that we were accustomed to and creating his own due to his artistic ability and interest in an underground movement that began with groups of inner city youths expressing themselves.  This is the earliest footage I could locate with an audible sound due to the lack of studio equipment and restoration. Hip Hop at the preliminary styles may come across elementary for some but no one would meet up on the block to murder each other,  solely based on the color of their shirt. Music should breed life into our communities but not terrify  the people who reside in these communities.  Music should never endanger the welfare of our children.
This nostalgic moment in history ushered the era of Self  – love and knowledge of your historical beginnings.  Art and Hip Hop will eternally linked thanks to the innovators  that  remain determined to bring brotherhood and strength and respect for women back in the forefront the Hip-Hop Movement. This is the birth of the mass copied, and always imitated Style that came into the minds of young men, that needed a way to express themselves. At times they were homeless and loners or outsiders chasing their way through dreams that others told them would never be a reality. It is OUR lifestyle, promote your love not your money! An artist knows they have to pay the bills, but you never give up your love for the culture, self-expression, and unification that has now swept the nations.

When they lose interest in your gifts and your dreams… Promote you!

Hip Hop began by simply throwing beats together,but then it was social and not violently killing people,until Crack swept the nation.
Who knew that what this moment would be the industry beginner? The rebellion and escapism fueled a historic truth. This is the earliest that I could locate anywhere until I found this, 1978!

Ramallzee, Jean Michel Basquiat, Toxic 1, and C-1!

Fashion Flash Back: 1980’s For All Dem’ Babies***messymandella***Whitney Houston (1985)

Age doesn’t matter!

Your size doesn’t matter!

The Color of your Skin Doesn’t Matter!
Your hair can be long, short, natural,weave, even a 1980’s mullet and Doc Martins with Crush Velvet (I don’t even know…child…)  but wear it with confidence.

You have to feel that love and admiration, even from a hater. If you prefer the 1980’s but are a little afraid,maybe have a retro party with close friends who appreciate big bangs, hairspray and layers of sock. Maybe,you are not ready for the Patti Labelle hair hat, just as of yet.

They may be  envious of you because YOU can pull it off, and you took that fashion risk.

3 women can wear the same dress, but if you don’t have that confidence, and beauty that embodies grace, you have wasted your time.

Take pride in yourself.

You are amazing, and adventurous. Those clothes, are an accessory for your unique swagger, and gorgeous face. These women are gorgeous, and all of different races an and different hair styles. You keep being confident, you with your bad ass!


All of these looks work, because the confidence is more important than the clothes.
You will stand in the light, and will have fashion mishaps too.

Don’t worry,but again if you are confident you won’t give a damn.

If you are not ready to go out with your hair stacked up to Jesus, or don’t invest in Aqua net Hair Spray have an 1980’s theme party. Don’t let someone tell you to play fashion, safe. That is not for you, if you have confidence.

Don’t worry about other’s opinions.

I don’t!

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!

#WorldCancerDay: Remembering Taylon!***messymandella*** classic story

 

       I wrote this story in 2014 about Taylon! If you notice, I am no Oprah, but I always revisit stories that are  unfinished and still search on a weekly basis for  results on the status of their life, and vindication. I am her for people who are injured , assaulted, molested, murdered or fighting a battle of illness, that it is only matter of time…
 
I  never stop searching and checking up on the people that have for some reason are a permanent part of my life and the connection is stronger than the majority of the world would even imagine. I am saddened in this case to bring a tearful follow up for a brave little girl, that no longer is crying and suffering.
 
Taylon passed away, a few months back but here she is before the end to remind us that every day is a fight that we take for granted. Here is Taylon’s story and the reason I continue to follow up  on past stories, is because everyone’s life means something, and they are here for a reason. I  am a tough and feisty little woman, that has the heart of a giant and the determination  of  100 men. I will not be content  t0  I make a difference in this  crazy and sometimes deceitful world. Even if I write thirty stories a day and to community work every hour,  I still will never be as strong, humble  and  courageous as you were, Taylon!
 
I Love You!

          A courageous little girl named Taylon wanted ONE wish! She has an inoperable tumor, and now is living the rest of her life just appreciating each day. She has a powerful and captivating presence. Taylon, We Love you more than you can ever will imagine.
 
            You are one of the stars that even when we can’t see you; your spirit will still shine. You embody everything a soldier would embody to fight a war.
 
          You will always have a place in everyone’s heart.This baby doesn’t have long to live but she is and will be an Angel, and a remarkable light in everyone’s eyes that meets her. I can’t fathom someone so young preparing to die, but as of now she has accepted her fate…
 

This little lioness will leave stains on your cheeks. I am sobbing right now for this phenomenal little princess.
