NAS Time Is Illmatic

KINGS GRACE

Illmatic is a classic album as well as the documentary Time Is Illmatic. Nas has truly evolved. I have included an article/video from Esquire.com titled The Perpetual Evolution of Nas. I chose this photo as well as the artist as a reflection of myself. (Memory Lane) You grow through what you go through you evolve. This image reminds me to stay grounded, reflect and keep steady. Walk in faith, stay solid and true to myself. There will be tough times (Life's a B*tch) and sorrows but it's important to learn to accept truth, see clearly and think freely.(The World Is Yours). Life's most valuable lessons are usually experienced rather than taught. Either way it's great to have balance to be the student and the teacher, As you learn you teach. (The Genesis). Always thank God with Grace. 

Nas is my favorite and most impactful artist who is humble, honored and appreciated. I am a student of life and like Nas I believe in leaving a proof of life. We lay bricks when we walk our path, we tell our stories through books, poetry, documentaries and through writing when our pen meets paper. This is the evolution of Brains Books Beauty. 

With Gratitude

Marvin Gaye

Flyin' High (In the Friendly Sky)  An incredible song by Marvin Gaye about Drug Addiction. While listening to the song it taps into your senses. Creative with the description, lyrics and reflection. He takes us on a journey; touching the soul, you can hear from the sounds, form a vision from his words and feel the experience. The power of addiction, drugs and the places it can take you emotionally, mentally and physically. Music is art, poetry and Marvin Gaye expressed that in depth and in the purest form. The album "What's going on" allowed us to see the world through his eyes.  Thank you Marvin Gaye for your impact, influence, style and impeccable talent.

Tears For Water

Alicia Keys Alicia Keys one of my favorite artist, a representation of brains and beauty. Tears for Water has lovely written words expressed in lyrics and poetry. My personal favorite is Stolen Moment which is also featured on her Unplugged album. Writing is a great form of expression and Alicia Keys did a wonderful job doing so in this book.
