#TalentTuesday:  BLACKTOPIA remembers novelist TONI MORRISON (R.I.P.)


American novelist, editor, educator and mother Toni Morrison, who chronicled the African American experience in fiction for over five decades, has passed at the age of 88.In a statement on Tuesday, her family and publisher Knopf confirmed that the author died in Montefiore Medical Center in New York on Monday night after a short illness.

AchievementsMorrison won the Pulitzer Prize and the American Book Award in 1988 for Beloved (1987). The novel was adapted into a film of the same name (starring Oprah Winfrey and Danny Glover) in 1998. Morrison was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1993. In 1996, the National Endowment for the Humanities selected her for the Jefferson Lecture, the U.S. federal government's highest honor for achievement in the humanities. She was honored with the 1996 National Book Foundation's Medal of Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. Morrison wrote the libretto for a new opera, Margaret Garner, first performed in 2005. On May 29, 2012, President Barack Obama presented Morrison with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. In 2016, she received the PEN/Saul Bellow Award for Achievement in American Fiction.

Throwback Thursday:  TRACEY LEE & NOTORIOUS B.I.G. "Keep Your Hands High"





REMEMBER THIS CLASSIC!?  Check out the Blacktopia #ThrowBackThursday feature of the day on classic 90s hip hop recording artist TRACEY LEE 1997 single "Keep Your Hands High" featuring The Notorious B.I.G. at the embedded youtube video above. 

Recently on a new edition of DRINK CHAMPS with host N.O.R.E., the host stated that the late Notorious B.I.G. bodied Tracey Lee out of existence with his verse.  We at Blacktopia strongly believe that the two emcees held it down equally.  Listen to the verses for yourself and let us know what you think in the comments!

Some Guy Named Jay of Blacktopia Round Table Talk Radio interviewed Tracey Lee a few years ago.  Check out the re-release of the interview at the direct link below.
