Nina Simone: black And bold! ***messymandella***ghostFace killah (DJ:fazubb)


Rise Up With Andra Day***messymandella***

      Andra Day is a blast from the 1940′ s and a breath and glimpse of  women who are willing to  create their own legacy of rhythm and blues  and jazz vocalization. Andra is similar to the Motown sound but  is ultimately their own. Her voice also lends a bit of inspiration from Ella Fitzgerald and she is simply beautiful.

 Cheers To The Fall  is a critically acclaimed unveiling of  the voice and writing ability and vision of Mrs. Andra Day. She has  musical ability that  we desperately needing in the music industry and she can now join the ranks of Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, and Deangelo. Mrs. Day is  singing and incorporates retro soul and the music industry will capitalize on pop music but what happened to soul music?
Andra’s voice is one of the best of this year and her  sound is reminiscent of  vintage compositions similar to Billie Holiday, Sam Cooke and Nina Simone  have long been forgotten, or unknown by a younger generation until now.

Nina Damn Simone!

That Is All!

mystery still clouds the murder of christopher “biggie” wallace ***messymandella***


I think sometimes in urban neighborhoods, we think it is cool to be in a casket.

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

How many dummies in prison from gun charges, and they never got a chance to fire them?

I don’t go to the grocery store with my gun, and I don’t hang around fools that can get me shot.

If I was hit by a bullet it  could be someone with the same color of skin as mine.

Get caught “lacking” at a job fair, and stop being stupid.

Pondering Minds What To Know:

Have you ever heard of someone shooting at a Dolly Parton, or Pattie Labelle  concert? 

FYI, you are not a soldier unless you are fighting in Iraq, or any other country for our freedom.

You are not a soldier, when you kill for your own greed.

Biggie Smalls never had a chance to become a grandfather, will you?
