As I stared at myself through the mirror I learned to love every inch of my core. I loved every mole, every scar, and every freckle a face pure with no make-up. Brown eyes that light up in the the sun. Brown skin gently kissed from its rays I danced in the heat on a hot Summer day into the “Heat of Night”.
I’ve known Kenny Parker “Illadelp” for some time now and I can’t believe it’s been 5 years since we hosted a show for emerging underground artist and my many visits to Soundwavez Studio to watch emcees get down on the mic. Illadelp is not concerned with catching mainstream’s attention, he’s just sharing his story through the art of a taste of the underground hip-hop era. Check out his latest “Black Money” album. Click on the image above and it’ll take you on a storytelling lyrical journey. No Trap! No Autotune! just Hip-Hop.
Even when the odds are stacked up against me I can always find a reason to walk with my head held high. I never knew how strong I was until I was faced with life’s sudden changes and truly love myself good, bad or indifferent. I no longer strive for perfection because I love all my flaws. I always wondered what type of woman I would become and through all this I now know that I was Made for This.
Everyday is a fresh start for me. I look back over the past few years and I watched how much I have grown and that the obstacles that I have faced weren’t set in place to break me, they were to help build me and strengthen me. I honestly would not have learned much if I didn’t go through life’s many woes. In April 2016 I shared with the world apart me that has held me back in so many ways. Eventually I got tired of holding back so I gave you all A Rose Forever Thorned Writing it was like therapy for me and in releasing it I gave away the pain.
