MAD Smooth Music produced Sweet Music and I'm grateful that they blessed me once again for the new project. The new joint is an upbeat, feel good boom bap joint and I'm lovin' it! Can't wait to share it with you all soon.
Check the video for Sweet Music (shot in Paris) here!
Stay tuned, dreampushers!?
What an incredible moment this was for me while on The Dreampusher Tour! #HIPHOP

hey y'all. =) i couldn't resist naming this post "she lives" because leave it to my blog posts... you would think that i have disappeared! however, if you have been keeping in touch with me via other social media outlets (mainly FB), you know that i am indeed alive and GREAT!
i'm trying to train myself to do better at keeping in touch with everyone. i'm trying to remember (to remember) that not everyone is hooked on FB like me. i really like FB because i am able to easily interact with everyone there...i'm a sucker for instant gratification in that sense. forgive me.
the past several months have been pretty eventful. although mostly concentrated in the South Eastern region of the States, not traveling abroad as much as early 2015, it has been a productive period in my life. i've really taken this time to develop my passion for working with our youth. i've gotten my company, The PUSH Project up and running and it has been an awesome experience.
i've been connecting with many young people and speaking at a variety of events.
in the classroom - preparing students for life!
i went to Montego Bay, Jamaica to perform at a benefit event and was spoiled by the most amazing hosts (an older couple who owns a small resort property) by the sea. i started working in the school system as a teacher (on assignment only) to keep my pulse on the lives on young people today, explore better ways to connect with them and try to positively influence them during the short time that i have with them.
OH!! i also got back into theatre and had a feature role in for colored girls who have considered suicide / when the rainbow is enuf which is Ntozake Shange's first work and most acclaimed theater piece.
Lady in Yellow!
And... of course, i've been working on the MUSIC!!!
i know that's what many of you wanted to hear about. The MUSIC.
well... look for new music to be released from me iiinnnnn...I'll share a date soon.
for now, join my list to be the first to know!!
head over to my website to stay in the loop!
you can also visit me at The PUSH Project to see what's happening with that.
thanks for staying with me.
you know I love ya.?

hoping you are beyond well... hoping you are absolutely magnificent!
as for me, I'm pretty good. I've spent most of the summer thus far running a hip hop summer camp for 6-12 year olds. it was an amazing experience. over the course of four weeks, i had an opportunity to teach about 70 children. we talked about hip hop history, danced, wrote rhymes, designed shirts and much more. we talked about the elements of hip hop and my friend, Charlie Chase of The Cold Crush Brothers, even stopped by to connect with my babies. (photos below)
i didn't realize just how much effort it took to work with young people on a day to day basis! they really need your full attention and each one has different needs. they taught me a lot! (i tip my hat to moms, dads, and full time teachers!) while it was exhausting at times, it was so rewarding.. there is nothing like the love of a child. :)
of course, i am still running The Push Project and we will continue to serve youth through our work shops. you can find out more about that at http://www.thepushproject.com. <3
aside from that, I'm working on the new project and planning an east coast/canada tour for september! yay! if interested in bringing me to your city hit up firstname.lastname@example.org.
all the best. :)

so this post is super late! i meant to share this week, I've just been on the move. at this point I'm actually like, six shows in. haha. =)
i will work on another update later. but for now, check out where we were as of last week. ;)
Things are going great out here! We even had a couple of off days in Italy so I had time to grab some real authentic gelato from these really cool people. ??
Visited a gorgeous church in Rome. The architecture is truly something to marvel at. Check out that ceiling!
Did a little souvenir shopping in Naples. I love that city. :)
We went to a reggae party in Naples and I ended up rocking a quick set. It was so dope. Loved the energy of everyone. The team teally had a great time.
I am receiving a lot of gifts on the road. I'm telling you...next time I'm packing underwear and socks. :) I'll probably have to mail some stuff home but that's not a bad problem to have. :)
I'm really proud of myself for remembering how to pack like my sis, Casandra, taught me to. Haha.
Had a dope interview and photoshoot with Salad Days Magazine before the show in Bologna, Italy. :)
münster was DOPE. I was happy to rock there again. We had a great show, the energy was amazing. Afterwards I was blown away by man of booom. I was watching in the front row watching this crew rock, writing rhymes, leaning on the speaker feeling the beat... then they handed me the mic and i jumped up and stated rocking with them. so dope! =)
one part of tour life... always rearranging bags to make the weight limit!!
I was so happy to make it to Rome. It was on my wish list this year. :-)
Dinner with the crew at a really great spot in Rome called, Necci.
Gotta find time to work out while on tour!! Even if it means missing my hair up a little bit. LOL.
On stage at Skaters Palace in Münster!
Signing everything from T-shirts to snap backs to phone cases. ??
Found these weights in the kitchen and decided to get it in real quick.
Was really cool getting to meet Elzhi. :)
