Recently, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Heem of iambition.inc. Heem is a photographer, promoter and clothing brand CEO! We sat down to talk more about his career in photography and entrepreneurship getting details on how far he plans to go with it. Also, we got more into detail about his clothing brand and its journey as well.
To learn more about Heem be sure to follow his social media tags above and check out this interview as well. That's all folks!
Thank God that Meek made it out of jail and he can be with his family and make his music! I think this is what we’ve been waiting for, for a long time. Meek has always been getting better with time and he never fails us as he does. I think that he has definitely changed his theme of rap from all about possessions and now trying to get young men and women to open their eyes. He’s trying to open their eyes to the streets, the people they hang around and their life in general. This generation isn’t the same from how Meek grew up as we see it. On the other hand, that’s why Meek is back and back like he never left!
I thought I was get more from this tape because I lke how versatile the EP was! He talked about the struggle, sex, and social awareness. The fact that he didn’t stick to one theme makes the tape so much better! Meek has grown is so many ways and he’s more humble. Today, I look at him as what the city of Philadelphia needs. People have watched Meek come from a dope boy and now known as one of the voices for the youth and the future generation. He does this with and without music and that’s what makes Meek a real one.
With all this being said, make are you check out Meek new EP, Lessons of The Summer! That’s all folks!
I never thought I would see the day that Toys “R” Us gets shut down. This generation has changed so much and a lot of kids that are growing up now can’t even experience the joy of being in this store. I used to love going here and looking at the best toys, playing with them and picking what toy to put on my Christmas! I think myself and the rest of the 90s babies can agree that this is so painful to read about! We all had high hopes that this company would last and that our kids would get the chance to experience the same joy. Obviously technology is replacing the toys these days. Kids don’t want their own toys because they would rather get on YouTube and watch someone else play with their toys. This days are so weird and backwards, that’s it’s becoming scary to notice.
I have to say that it is truly true when people say, “You don’t know what you got until it’s gone” and now our favorite mascot has packed his bags and retired! I will say that Toys “R” Us will be truly be missed because it was more than just a store for kids, it was our happy place! We loved feeling like those kids from the commercial showing our favorite toy and wishing we could have every toy that we saw on television. Those were the days! If only I didn’t wish I was an adult at five years old, I would so take that back! On the other hand, it’s good that we have good memories and left with something to talk about forever! That’s all folks!
I had the pleasure of sitting down with Jessie Griffin to talk more about his clothing brand. As you can see from his limited edition shirt shown in the video, he's already on his way. Tune in into the experience with Kenlo and Jessie Griffin!
I just want to get to the nitty gritty on both sides of the fence when it comes to this young man’s life. First off, we know about his music, we know that his music helped others and we know that he was famous. Aside from these things, he was also known to be very abusive to people and in his relationships. He was very dangerous and was in and out of jail. As far as the people who knew him personally, they know him better than we do! Regardless, as the audience we are obviously still going to judge because that’s what keeps the story going and that is what the people want. I personally never listened to his music because I didn’t know much about him. In addition, I also read about the things that he’s done negativity which made me not want to engage at all.
As as far as his death, this is sad that he got shot and died instantly. What’s worse is that people didn’t care to at least try to save him, they wanted to record it and have something to talk about! Social media has made people slaves to the point where they forget morals and feed into the life of Instagram and not reality. Reality is where the truth is and where we need to take heed the most. Why are kids and even adults learning different things based off social media, when we know half of these people are living a fake life and want to show something just for the “clout” so the kids say! We are living in a time where people are lost and trying to find themselves through other people. With that being said, social media gives us constant information that generally doesn’t have anything to do with us, but the information that is in our faces, we run with it, as if that’s the actual “truth.”
Next, there are people saying that he was changing and bettering himself so we shouldn’t speak on the bad things he did. The last thing I heard about XXX is that he beat a gay man up for looking at him in jail. The information that we received, is what we were left with. I’m not saying he deserved to get killed because he didn’t but was the energy of forgiveness and compassion around when he was alive? Also, did anyone talk to him about his actions? The same people who don’t know him probably were the same ones saying bad things about him when he made these bad choices? Imagine how the victims of what was done to them felt like while he was alive. There are people like XXX who are alive so honestly, we have to think about what was done, what they are doing and were doing prior to changing the abusive behavior. At the end of the day, people deserve a life and they can change but it’s up to that person to change. That’s all folks!
I think we have a winner right here. I didn’t know about Jay Rock until I listened to King’s Dead. That one verse he spit made me a fan of him and ever since then I was ready hear more from him. I mean I could have listened to his other work but I wanted something new and refreshing since I’m just getting on to him. When I saw this had dropped, I wanted to give it a listen and I was very impressed by it. You don’t really hear real music with a message or music from artist being expressive in their own way. We know how I already feel about today’s music so let’s skip that part. Jay Rock is a real one for everything that he says and I could tell he was from the West Coast from the way the he raps and his overall swag from the cover itself. Everything about this album is fire. My favorite songs are Troopers and Redemption (feat. SZA)! All of his songs are dope but those two get me going!
Troopers makes me feel like a thug and ready to ride or die for my friends but Redemption makes me want to pray and ask forgiveness. These song and the whole album give you a feeling. If the music doesn’t give you emotion, is it really art or music? Make sure you listen to one of the biggest vibes of the Summer! That’s all folks!
I see a lot of people talking about Kate Spade whom I actually didn’t know of but I heard she was a pretty dope designer . I also see a lot of people being advocates for Suicide after this incident. Now I am not saying you can’t have a change of heart and be different about how you treat people that are going through tough times. I also, see other people posting about having a lot of money and still not being fully happy. Suicide is at an all time high especially in this generation because we are constantly focusing on negativity and the music we listen to even has some of us depressed about things that shouldn’t have the space in our lives and heads. We have to always be careful of the things we intake in our spirit because it could change us to be something we are not and lead us down a rocky road. Not to mention, people should already know the value of what makes them happy and how they go about getting that happiness but for some it’s not that easy.
The road to positivity and being happy isn’t always easy because sometimes you can find yourself being stuck in the past, overthinking situations and replaying events that have already happened. I’m not telling you how to be happy but I am telling you if you don’t find what makes you happy now, you’ll keep searching for happiness in the wrong places. Not to mention, it’s what you surround yourself with that makes a difference as well. Now, when people find this hard and begin to give up that when depression hits and they think they don’t have a purpose, than they lose hope and lose themselves. Then, they takes matters into their own hands and end it all but that’s when people want to actually start caring. This is not to bash anyone but this is to say that now matter what happens between you and someone or others, forgive them for you to give yourself that peace and release that power they may have over you. Also, check on those people who you know always remains strong and hide it because they could be battling a serious situation.
Act now, not later! That’s all folks!
Hey everyone, so I am back with another Q&A with another dope creative. She is orginally from the city of Philadelphia but is now based in California. With that being said, she has moved her creativity and business in another state but she never fails to give us her best self. She is a model, rapper and has a skin care product (All In One Rose Elixir) which is changing the game! Make sure you check her out and buy her products for yourself or your special lady! Lastly, here’s the coversation she and I had! I hope you all enjoy these questions and answers!
1. When did you get started?
I started composing music in 2009, I was in my high schools band and orchestra. Rapping and producing didn’t come into play until 2012.
2. What inspired you to make music?
Sheila E. is my absolute biggest inspiration. I admire so much about her and as a youth. I wanted to be just like her. She inspired me to speak and live in my truth in regards to my music.
3. Who/what do you find for inspiration to create music?
Im inspired by everyday life. It’s a roller coaster and there’s always something to talk about.
4. Do you see yourself making a few projects or just one?
I have so many projects in the works as we speak!
5. Where do you see yourself in the future with music?
Im not sure, but I would like to collaborate with all my faves and make timeless music.
1. What sparked the idea to have a business in skincare?
I worked at Lush for a while and I loved their products but the price isn’t so cute. So with my knowledge in skincare I decided to create an affordable skincare line for everyone to use and fall in love with.
2. Do you one day want to open up a shop to sell your products?
3. I’ve realized that you get a lot of great feedback from your customers, was it unexpected to see your business flourish the way it has?
Omg yes! But I was sure that everyone would love it because every ingredient is organic and most importantly every bottle is made to order based on the skins needs.
Women Empowerment in 2018
1. What are your thoughts on Women Empowerment 2018?
Womxn run this world, it’s been time for us to empower each other and change the standards of society.
2. Do you think it has changed? If yes, or if no, how?
I think social media has definitely contributed to the changes in womxn empowerment. There’s so many of us who set the example and lead with love. The future for womxn is so bright!
3. What advice would you give to young women growing up in 2018?
BE YOURSELF, NO ONE IN THIS WORLD IS YOU. To be accepted is a great feeling but it’s best when you didn’t compromise your true self to get there.
4. What are some experiences so far in 2018, that have you shaped you more into becoming who you are as a woman?
Honestly, everyday is a learning experience and there’s always something happening that makes me step back and reevaluate myself and character.
That’s all folks! Stay tuned for the next Q&A!
There’s nothing wrong that you can tell me about Tierra Whack. She’s one of the dopest rappers out and what make hers different is that she’s outside of the box more the others. Not that the others aren’t capable but she stands out and how she stands out, nobody can be that way. Tierra Whack is that person who you think you could be but you really can’t no matter how hard you try. Her visuals and sounds on this project was dope! They were all different, they gave you a different feeling and she’s herself through the whole project. Philly just birthed a legend and Meek was right about that. I’m scrolling through my Instagram and wondering why she had so many posts until I went to her whole page and realized, there were a lot more videos to choose from. I was excited and wanted to see what this project would be about. We definitely got a glimpse into her world!
Every song is hot, every visual is decent and unique and Tierra has left the city of Philadelphia with something to blast and talk about for a while. It’s official! That’s all folks! Check out new project, Whack World, from Tierra Whack today!
See, I thought after two diss tracks to Pusha T from Drake was enough but apparently it wasn’t. Drake mentioned Pusha T’s fiancé and now the pot has been stirred. Push has dropped this new diss and I have to say that he was not playing and I thought Drake won. This time Push got deeper with Drake. Supposedly Drake has a son, and he abandoned him, maybe Drake is confused on whether he’s black or white and now Push wants to see how “upset” he really is. I hope to hear more from Drake. I didn’t expect Push to come back but not just come back, but come back way harder than Drake has ever done it. At least in my opinion. Push wasn’t easing up on the track and I would drop a few lines but that would spoil everything for you guys!
As far as Drake responding, I do wonder what he will say or if he will say anything at all. Sometimes when “beef” arises in the rap game, it’s almost a never ending cycle, so I’m anticipating a response from Drake and to see how he will set the tone. Besides Drake’s next response, this response from Pusha T, has left jaws open, eyes wide and thoughts embedded. All I kept saying was “Damn”. Shots were endlessly fired and I had to clutch my pearls! Click the video above! That’s all folks!
