Single Woman Night Out: Bilal







Wednesday night, one of the most underrated artists performs in Memphis, and his name is Bilal. if you have never seen this man perform live, then you are definitely missing out on one of the best artist in neo-soul. So, I chose to make this night a date night but with myself. Ok, kind of with myself I had an extra ticket left and gave it to one of my friend. But nevertheless, I still had a great time. Before Bilal bless the stage he had two men that also shut the place down. Juju bushman, and Marco pave. I have seen juju perform several times before, and each time its seem like he leaves you mesmerize. He did a three-song set that left everyone wanting more of the local act, but what people didn’t know that he was also guest in the next opening act Marco pave.

This was my first time catching this up& coming rapper, but there is a buzz going around this guy so I couldn’t wait and see this guy perform. And like juju, Marco did not let me down. He performs with a mixture of a DJ, and live band. And he brought juju bushman out for two song, he was the high energy that everyone needed before Bilal touch the stage. I definitely see why there is a buzz around him, and I see great things in his future. He gives you old hip-hop, with a mixture of new generation hip-hop which is what missing these days. And also, last night was his birthday so what better way to spend your birthday.

Then it was time for the main event, when Bilal touch the stage I knew he was going to take us back when we first heard his music. Bilal was everything I knew he would be, his band was one of the best live band I heard. He performs all of his hits, but when revisit his 2016 BET awards tribute performed everyone went crazy. He played a mixture of all genres of music, he took me back to 98 when I first heard him. I may have been only 8, but I knew he was going to be around for a long time. Bilal was one of the best live acts, I ever seen. Just like many great artists. He is very slept on but he has a lifetime fan in me. Wednesday night was a great way to kick off my 27th, and I had fun by myself. And I ran into some familiar spirits, that wish me a happy birthday and we were able to catch up. So, great music, and great company, and great foods I think I kick off my birthday just right.




Got to thank Hi-Tone, for a amazing show. Can't wait to work for them again soon.

When Hurt People Hurt: Nas and Kelis

You can’t fix what you didn’t break. Sometimes the demons we face, are not the person we’ve dated fault. We’ll never know the demons anyone truly face, until they decide if they want to take it out on us. We try to be there and show them something different but soon realize their demons are slowly killing us. As I come to learn a man is his mother image. A man is what his mother make him to be, he may carry out some of his father actions; but his character come from his mother. Like a woman is what her father tell her to be. Whether he speak it with his words or speak it with his actions (by not being in her life), a woman carry her father words with her everywhere she goes and in all of her relationships. That why sometimes when a man is reckless, if his mother understand his actions then no one else opinion of him even matter. Vice versa with a woman. We chose to play doctor but doesn’t stay around to fully cure that person injuries. We just add more cuts, to an already wounded soul…

My Thoughts on Love Is...

As I always say, when the love is real it not meant for anyone on the outside to understand. I always ask women “what would they do for love?” Some women answer, while some just look at me like I’m crazy. Everyone loves to claim they have a limitation on love. However, as one told me you only have limitation when you haven’t met your match. Now, before I could write this story I had to re-watch this series twice just to make sure I was understanding what I was watching. Therefore, after watching this show I got something to say and it won’t be pretty. My new addiction celebrating black love is Love Is”, which tells the origin story of a modern-day love, before social media came and destroyed well trying to destroy love for everyone. This show has become the topic of discussion more than this season of “Insecure” (I’m still waiting for that wow moment of this season). Love Is_ is set in '90s. And tells the story of two Black creatives who fall for each other quickly. Nuri works as…

What to Do When A Person Ghost You

We all knew this day was coming and now it time I write about it. This Sunday night, was the season finale of “insecure." Now, before I get to the point of the story I must share my thoughts of this whole season. I was looking for that spark this season like season one, and two, but I didn’t receive one until the end. Even the whole Daniel and Issa storyline that was a letdown. When I saw she brought back Lawrence I was hoping that finally they would work it out, but again Lawrence on that bitch ass shit. However, the relationship between Nathan and Issa was the talk on black twitter. While Issa thoughts she finally met a good guy who challenge her, Nathan proved that “the lighter the eyes, the bigger the lies.” While we have to wait until Next Year to see exactly where this relationship will go, Nathan pulled a move that was close to home for many people. It hurt like hell when a person leave you without any warning or reasons. It leave you asking yourself, “What did you do?” We…
