Les Nubians "AFRODANCE"

C'mon, I had to.

Even if you dont have an afro, just appreciate the music!


Black August was AMAZING.

First of all, EVERYONE at BLACK AUGUST ROCKS M' SOCKS. Secondly Les Nubians are the most gorgeous individuals you might ever be blessed to lay you third eye on. Comprende? I bought a few dashikis for $5 on 30th and 5th-yes i share these things-and thought it would be incredibly appropriate to wear at Black August, no? It was a GOOd, GreaT, FANfrickenTASTIC show and I'm still coming down from it! Shouts to my homies that came through to support and everyone who enjoyed me enough to add me on facebook. Now we're REALLY friends, yes? Good. Here's video from the show :)

"My Name Is (Kalae All Day)"

"Say Suh'm"


"S&M (Sun&Moon)" + "20Kit Kats 4 The Riff Raff"

my bad for the darkness-i wanted a spotlight and dude was mentally retarded :)

What does it mean to be an artist with no muse
I make no sounds
I spark no fuse
It makes no sense to be not of use
So ill just lay down or go find a noose.

Or I go find you..

A picture of perfection
If pictures where scarred from life lessons
You're increasing the tension
So I use discretion

why? I cant mention..

You say I said too much
Well here's another example, but life's too tough
To not express what is ample, and rising up

What the fuck..

Sparks dwindling down
I need oxygen now
No playing possum, get out before it's rotten but how?
Its too awesome.

Love isn't forgotten..

Its just defrostin
Its just exhaustin

But ill pull through..
For you.


a different type of CRUSH

I was looking for "Crush" the new short by Dominic Colon that won best short at this years latino film festival but I couldn't find it. I DID however, find this lovely short called "The Crush" that was nominated for an oscar last year-and you'll see why. this kid is motha effin G.

Rehearsal for Black August 8/25

So, me and my lovey band Turnstylz were in rehearsal the other day and decided to add my 80 bar verse "20 Kit Kats 4 the Riff Raff(BRAIN POWER)" to a song I have on my EP with Sciryl Cooper ("The Sun, The Moon & The Stars") called "S&M (Sun&Moon)." Check out the video and keep in mind this was the first time I rapped those bars that fast.. It was intense. Come to the show next thursday to see the real deal go down flawlessly ;)



I was watching this and crying for all of the babies, all of the children that have died, all of the children that will die and all of the children that will grow up with no parents because of the drought in East Africa. If anyone can donate to this website


please do, have some compassion in you comfy beds, your comfy apartments with your tap water and 24 hour grocery stores for the people that have none of those things but have heart, and have walked, some for 30 days to refugee camps and had to leave siblings and children and parents dead in their tracks because there was nothing that they could do. I see their emaciated bodies and all I can think of is HOW CAN I HELP? WHY DO I FEEL SO HELPLESS?

Maybe I can get some artists to volunteer to do a benefit concert with me and we'll donate all the proceeds to Kenyans4Kenya. Would anyone be interested in this? If you are a promoter, if you own a venue, if you are a performer and you'd be down for something POSITIVE and MEANINGFUL like raising money to help people who are in greater need than yourself, please hit me.


Just him and his guitar

I had to add this one too. It's amazing what can happen online. To have someone like this hit me up and ask to collab-I get SO MUCH BULLSHIT aimed at my head on FB for this to fall into my hands like this just seems kismet. I mean I get asked to collab so much on FB and the majority of the time I don't really listen to the music because I'm all for letting music happen organically. I knew Sciryl for a year and did shows with him and chilled and bonded with him before we released a project together. There's something to that. Making music with people you have a connection with. That's how music should be done so it's almost against my religion to collab with someone I know nothing about and never had any human contact with.. But this guy, yo.. We had a talk and I found out he's a libra AND Jimi Hendrix is his idle? I have no doubt in my mind that you will all be hearing a collab from me and dude soon.

From C.R.E.A.M. to G.L.E.A.M

Where we came from..

Where we're going..

shouts to Cavalier and the whole NRO (New Rap Order) crew.


Charles Cash Bryant hit me up on facebook..

I been working on my guitar skills back and fourth for a year or so now.. It's seems like every time I get some good quality calluses on my fingertips I plateau, get uninspired and put the guitar down. This dude makes me wanna go pick it back up. Like Righ' now, righ' now.

How could you not be impressed?


"Pass Times & Crass Lines" dropping 8/25

Mercury in retrograde my ass..


Pics from the Sol Collective in Sacremento, CA

Just stumbled upon these photos in my computer that I took last year while I was touring with Rebel Diaz and YC The Cynic. They're from this non profit called the Sol Collective which is kind of like the RDAC of the west coast. I remember it being a very chill place and obviously full with lots of art and inspiration. Hope you like the pics!


Miss Representation

Newest Miss Representation Trailer (2011 Sundance Film Festival Official Selection) from on Vimeo.

This is a documentary that my home girl DJ DopeShoes put me on to today. I wanna set up a screening of this film with DopeShoes so anyone that's interested hit me up and we'll make a little event surrounding it. My all female sisterhood, Fem'Fatale, will be heavily involved but I ENCOURAGE men to come and watch and for all of us to invite young women in our lives to watch this documentary!

The depiction of women in media is a topic that is discussed so often in Fem'Fatale and in my life in general, its great that someone cared enough to make this the topic of a documentary. I can't wait to see it!!

The Band Called Fuse

I feel like this should be up here, i gotta start showing more love to all my brilliant artist friends on my blog. Listen, I know some of the most talented people in NY.. which means that I know some of the most talented people in the world. There is so much amazing talent to inspire me and keep that fire under my ass, It just wouldn't be right if I didn't share it with you. So "The Band Called Fuse" BONG!


Shooting from britta thie on Vimeo.

This is deep to me because of the underlying theme of dehumanization in modeling. If you were a photographer taking picture of her every frame was gorgeous but she's being barked at like a dog and obeying like one. Its such a strange dichotomy to get something so beautiful done so distastefully.


Baby Just Be U -KAD

Baby just be U

i see you with your head held high
your socks rolled up and your converse shoes
and i say baby just be U

i love your nappy hair and the way your chin reflects the same
don't cut that off for business meetings
baby just be U

when you took that scarf and wrapped it around your head like you were the reincarnation of jimi hendrix..
when you thought you were the reincarnation of jimi hendrix..
with a better business savvy..
when i thought you were jimmy too,
i thought baby just be U

when you started balding at 19 cuz you're tall enough for the sun to sear the hair off the top of your head,
i said baby just be U

your body is soft and hard and long and short and big and small
baby just be U

your skin is rough and smooth and hairy and bare and light and dark
baby just be U

i saw you staring in the mirror feeling really good about yourself and i wished i could be like that when i looked in the mirror..
i admire your confidence sister.. brother..
baby just be U

i saw you reading a book with your frames on.. no lenses.. and i thought i could do that too..
i admire your ability to be audaciously fly and brilliantly educated
baby just be U

every time you eat like you never ate before and you get the ITIS, you open up a button on the top of your hipster jeans and I've never been more attracted to you and your protruding belly..

every time you roll a blunt and i want to know what hurts you, i become more intrigued by your pain and depth..

every time you bite your tongue i want to suck the blood that drips from it..

every time you earn a dollar i wonder what 100 thoughts you exchanged for them..

every time you wear your jeans under your ass with a belt i wonder who your mother is..

every time you touch me i wonder why your hands keep changing..

U have power, U are sexy.

U are playful, U have facets.

U are insecure.

and i love U,

so baby,

just be U.


Full Moon

Hello Moon, you are beautiful, you are spherical.. 360.. life.. creation.. destruction.. you control water, water is life.. you are powerful, we share a cycle and I am in awe of you. For the past couple of months me and a select amount of ladies have participated in a full moon ceremony where we burn sacred herbs and thank the moon for the many gifts it has bestowed upon us. I am full of mystical forces and inspiration after cleansing my chakras and giving myself up to the moon and the female energy that surrounded me. It was a blessing. I am blessed. We are blessed.

Shouts to Chesney Snow, Alyson Greenfield, Andrew Gutterson, Magdelena Snow, Stephanie Rooker, Ferima Faye, Agueda Ramirez, Sasha, Ben Tyree, NRO (Cavalier, SupaNova, MC K.Swift, TreZZure, Faro-Z..), Sciryl Cooper, Ohene Cornelius, Jenna, Johnell, Sahair, Chaz VanQueen and all the other amazingly beautiful people I encountered today.

Photoshoot with Alex Bershaw

Click to view larger

I took it upon myself to edit this photo that was taken by Alex Bershaw and he didn't like the saturation so im posting it on here for you all to see and judge for yourselves.. I LOVE saturation, it represents the spectrum of color in my heart.


Erykah Badu

Ahhhh ive found a great example already, found this online, thought it was dope, sharing it with you.. Erykah Badu is one of my biggest influences, she's a goddess and I the UTMOST respect for her and her talent. A video like this would never be on MTV and it should. She looks beautiful, she's moving with poise and fluidity even though she's not a "dancer" you can understand and appreciate the movement and the emotion of this video and song more than anything on WTT but they have something to sell you.. Erykah is just trynna tell you..


My blog is getting a make over. In the next few weeks lots will be changing. One of which will be how often I post on my blog vs how often I post on facebook/twitter. I'm dedicating more time to my blog because I feel like my blog gives my fans a better sense of who I am. I need a more creative space to better display who I am because I'm not 140 characters or less and I'm definitely not "hope you catch me on ur news feed of your other 2,000 friends you have on facebook and you never check your messages or invites and then ask me why u don't know I'm on tour" Grrrr! Here you will catch video from me, pieces written by me, pictures taken by me and if I happen upon some genuinely cool ish online I will post and write my opinion but honestly I wont be like one of those blogs that just reblogs other blogs.. I dont know about you but I HATE that. And I dont use "hate" a lot. I also dont use "bitch" and "nigga" a lot. FYI. Im just an afro attached to a singer/rapper/songwriter and she's like 5'10 which is how tall all girls should be, that's all im trynna say.

Stay in the blogisphere

It was just brought to my attention that an anonymous person in ATL painted this SPECTACULAR painting of me and I might never know who to thank and give a milli praises to. There is nothing like someone painting you. This means SOOO much to me. Thank you. Who ever you are.

'Preciate it.


ps.this just might be my mixtape cover :)
