SoundOffSundays With KiKi Waters Of Team Money Hungry and Beezy Brown Of Blvck Tovd

 

I was at SoundOffSunday with my OhSoRadio team mates. Capturing the essence of Golden Road Brew with Randi Rossario. As my work with her was done, I knew I needed to bottle this culture in a essence to share it with the world. I caught up with some artist I followed for a minute and grew a connection with. Here are some of the interviews I did below.

IMG_1217

 

Saturday August fourth marked a day in many Detroiters calendar. The Sidewalk Festival that took place in Artist Village. A robust culture with many different talents meeting up to embrace joy and unity. As I was walking down the street I was amazed by the diversity of the event. The Detroit Poetry Society were also there to speak on their involvement within the movie, “Detroit”. I also Interviewed a couple people and took some amazing pictures. The love I  received from the crowd there was amazing.

 

“This event is something different for the youth, it is an nice event. It gives people the chance too make money being creative. I found out this event last year through Naturally Fly. I started this business with my husband to craft something that represent my kids” – Kenyetta From ReadyTees

 

“The Sidewalk Festival is good for the youth too see more positive imagery. Expressing through creative outlets and showcasing their talents. It helps expand their horizon to see life differently.” – Ty-Juan From ReadyTees

They Also Gave Me This Amazing Ass Shirt. I Salute…#BlackEconomics…

 

It is definitely an one of a kind event that is different. It is something for everybody that is here; does not matter if you are poor, rich, and your background. Everybody from the neighborhood meet up here to enjoy the positive vibes and see the duality that is in the city. You have Brightmoor that is not as affluent than around the way you have Rosedale Park, which is doing a lot better. The neighborhood here is unique, especially with all the murals.”- Brandon Burton AKA “Skillz”

“I found out this event through the Henry ford summer intensive program which my daughter actively participates in. I am all about her excelling within the arts. The Sidewalk Festival is very positive because it teaches the youth how to make something out of nothing”- Dorothy Dior

“The Sidewalk Festival embraces positivity, it keeps the neighborhood together. It also gives people an opportunity to learn the area. It is new to me and beautiful. It is colorful, lively and a very friendly atmosphere. “- Tiany Williams

 

It is great for the youth too see different ranges of performances and different styles of performing arts. It helps mold the young mind, especially those that are with less privileged backgrounds too see something that is free but is high quality and unique. It is also great to see kids have fun. They also get too see adults make art. I would say the Sidewalk Festival helps make adults tune into an intuitive creative child like state.” – Vanessa from River Spirit

 

I also got an interview with one of the co-founders of the Detroit Poetry Society. Gabrielle Knox, I asked her how did the Detroit Poetry Society has had an impact in this movie and Detroit culture. This is what the poetic activist had to say.

 

“The opportunity to switch the narrative”- Gabrielle Knox From Detroit Poetry Society

Strength In Love(Thank You #NapalmSupporters)

The love for my mother and the love she gives me makes me think brighter. Actually working together as a team; share dreams, goals and visions that will make each other believe.  When I see my brothers that I love going separate paths. I makes sure I do my best to grow with them. Stay focus on the end goal. I have to remember the love everybody that came up with me gave,especially, it is most important to not forget where you came from. The strength of my love will always keep me going. I will not let the love you give go in vein, I had to believe in myself in order too gain. If I did not love myself, I would not realize the love you gave too me. If I did not love you guys, I would not know how too love Napalm.

The beauty of aesthetics, the way you sway makes me move by your walk. Pink that sits lovely upon your chest top. Eyelashes that flutter when you feel emotions that can’t stop. What is love? Love is being attracted to the appeal of a person. Attraction comes when we recognize what we resonate with. “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”, some would say. I myself, instantly find woman with a mystical quality irresistible. She was that unique personality  that stood out from the rest.

 

Her imagination takes a hold, like how his arms caresses around her body, while enjoying the smell of his Calvin Klein cologne. She attracts too his entrepreneurial qualities that shows strength and determination. His comedic humor brought an aesthetic too how I attract too him.

 

You say this love is a dangerous thing, is that why you’re heart is so caged? Is that why you rather do everything alone? Maybe you’re right. When love goes wrong, hate can become the aftermath. But I beg to differ, if you love, than you can forgive. I strongly believe, If you love than you can love yourself. Just to forget what the last person did. You let hate turn you so cold, you let hate blur your vision as to how beautiful the world can be. It’s not love that is dangerous, it’s hate”

 

Even though he had missing pieces and cracks on every angle, he still had flowers growing from them. Cold is what the world made him out to be. What was blind to the eye was his heart, one that kept him warm but caged up with the key tossed into despair. He refused to let anyone touch it in fear that key becoming just as cold as his skin.

 

I say Love is everywhere but nowhere at the same time. If you put nothing but love onto this earth, there would be no such crimes. Where there is love there is complication. To love everyone yet love one single soul is proof. You love a field full of roses, but nothing compares to that only star that shines so bright in the sky. That’s why i’m attracted to you. The aesthetics of  your moves mesmerized my mood.

The Internet Is Under Invasion By Our Government! Act Now!

The internet is a tool allowing the exchange of products and services; akin to the Silk Road that existed in 1877. But imagine a Silk Road where services can be brought, trade and sold at a faster rate. Students,on the pursuit of knowledge, have access to the best teachers around the world. The internet has also furthered the advancement of research; electronic files have never been so easier to access, allowing scientist around the world to collaborate. College degrees, in my opinion, has devalued thanks to the power of the internet. With the right knowledge,a person with ideas can become the millionaire of tomorrow. Not being in huge amount of debt thanks to student loans.

Stores like Walmart, Target and even Best Buy, face great threat thanks to online competitors. Consumers have more options and avoid taxation of the products they buy. People are afforded possibility, the power of choice is all in the click of a button. This allows more equal opportunity amongst the people. Increasing the probability to see success within a person’s lifetime. Not having to sit within the confines of an educational institution. All you need to succeed in the technological age is a good product and marketing campaign.  Employers are now using social media too screen their potential candidates for hire. Social media has also helped landed people better jobs too further their career. The internet has had great influence in our economic structure.

It has seen tremendous amount of growth, since computer scientist,Tim Berners Lee invented the world wide web. It has reached such a peak the government and large corporations has interest in control of it. Imagine an online world where you have to pay more to visit your favorite websites. Giving start-up companies (like myself) a major downfall. Net Neutrality gives everyone an equal opportunity to showcase their content. People like Ajit V. Pai are hard at work, fighting against the idea of open internet. Taking away our freedom of speech, voice and the ability to share content. We have seen many movements grown into fabrics of American society, helping fight social injustices we face today. If Net Neutrality is broken, entrepreneurship in the digital age will be a thing of the past. The pursuit of knowledge will also be tampered with, giving less access to those not of fortune. Imagine living in a technological world; where you have to pay more money to access the content you like, over a tool that has been free to the public for over ten years. Many of us want freedom, internet has given us all a chance to experience that. The limitations that are placed on some has been lifted. I can read as much as I want. Watch as much movies as I want, an even know different types of people around the world. Music has also been thriving, giving more independent musicians,such as Chance The Rapper, a chance to be heard. Not relying on big corporations too have an influence on how we want to release our art and touch the people.  

 

The Fight Starts Here

NxppyHead Broward Is A Lightning Streak In The Summers Sky

 

Broward embraces the aesthetics of ambiance and style. Broward is the tape that will have you rolling you’re next joint. You will get lost in the atmospheric melodic trap symphony Heart$ provide. The way the 808’s  punches through dreamy instrumentation, the listener will know what a thunder cloud sounds like. I can envision this tape being played on a night drive home from the club. The production on this tape defines cloud rap in a nut shell. A ethereal ghostly vibe encased in new generation romanticism. The stand out track, Alive, is the song I love the most. The singer Domingo Black delivers a melodic flow with thoughtful ambiguous lyrics. The production behind “Alive”, matches the hopeless romantic vibe a Tumblr beauty lives by.
