RIP Lionel Pickens AKA Chinx Drugz (December 3, 1983 – May 17, 2015) ***messymandella***

If the music industry and the streets were never intertwined before, after 2001 we have noticed a pattern of talented men being murdered or incarcerated on a weekly basis.

                The fact remains that the “Slime” is not what you are meant to be, you are meant to be a “King” but we can’t be kings by killing yOUR own. Chinx is gone after working years to provide for his family and his jealous enemies were waiting for him.

Someone taunted him and the comment is deleted off a social media which told Chinx to “rest in piss” which was blatantly disrespectful to his family and fans. Let this man’s senseless death guide you to the right side, and  navigate your path to a life of accomplishment. Chinx took advantage of an opportunity to better himself and someone used street mess and probably social media to track him down, and end his life.

           Once again, this message is for the babies that still have time, to leave their neighborhoods and flourish in life. I want you to live and anyone telling you to join a gang and to put in work is using you to fatten their pockets. Surround yourself with people who understand that you are trying to feed your family, and they will never understand that Black Lives Matter. We say it, but is time to mean it,I am tired of this happening. THIS was never suppose to be part of the Hip Hop Culture!
  

       The killers of Chinx, made their decision to join in the urban genocide.

You are not stuck in this mess! Whoever did this to a rapper and  family provider, will now have to face their own Karma, but  it won’t bring a dad back home, to play with his son.

STOP KILLING EACH OTHER! BLACK LIVES MATTER, EVEN WHEN WE PULL THE TRIGGER.

Daley – Look Up ***messymandella***

At 26 Years Old, Daley convinced the genre of Indie Soul, that he was worth the attention with his voice and stylization, years ago.

Daley  has that unique soulful voice that Neo-Soul truly requires for its unique, retro genuine taste. 

Lovers of soul should advance this musical form and appreciate those in the game, that are training and paying homage to the legends in this musical game.

 

We always entertain what is Pop, but this is a diversion from the mainstream and considered by some as  “Grown Folks Music.” 

Currently,  Daley is creating music in the studio with Pharelle Williams. Their new collaborations undoubtedly will spring forth some buzz-worthy support in the ignored music genre of Neo-Soul. Daley is a breath of fresh air in music industry and he has the chance to reap benefits in regards to his purchasing power and ability to sustain, in this music industry but stay Daley.

Daley’s voice is reminiscent to legends of soul and sopranos forefathers, such as   Prince, and Maxwell, but make no mistake about it, Daley’s voice remains his own

Daley, still embodies soul, and classic Rhythm and Blues and his fluent song style, that no one will be able to compete with his sound based, on his determination and struggle in this industry.

Daley’s music which is covered with the inner strength and narrative truth in his voice that relaxes your spirit.

Daley, reminds us that you plant your seeds to grow, and don’t just worry about the money now!

Blessings and Greatness comes to “Those Who Wait.”

Live Music From Joss Stone***messymandella***


 

Joss Stone‘s talent should have catapulted her to the status of singerAdele.  Joss Stone’s voice is sultry and difficult to imitate.
 

 Joss Stone releases songs and videos that for the most part just get ignored.
 
 No one quiet understand the disappearance of her popularity.
 
Maybe she  has grown up to fast? We should remember she was under 17 and had an adult boyfriend, and singing with Betty Wright.
 
Maybe, when she started dressing like Rainbow Brite,her popularity declined?
 
 Even though Joss still gets the cold shoulder in the music industry, she is still releasing music.
 
Joss is Neo-Soul, and  “Blue-Eyed Soul” is of course a term for other races creating music in the Soul Genre.
 
I have used that term  and tag before,  I realized the stereotype I was aiding in a segregation of my own…
 
The termBlue-Eyed Soul, is a contradiction that creates a boundary.
 
Soul Music is from the heart, regardless of skin.
 
That being said, she has more soul than half of the singers you will hear in this lifetime, radio, or on BET!
