A Kings Grace: Nasir Jones


Plant The Seed 

Watch It Grow


When you learn, you teach! 

Articulate, humble, realistic and steady are a few words to describe Nasir Jones. I shared some interesting parts of his career as well as his impact. How he sees himself as well as what he projects. It's a thoughtful approach and relative. This is a gentleman that is true to himself, self aware and understands his life's purpose. His first album "Illmatic" was released in  1994 and he has reached greater heights in his career. "27 Summers" a song from his latest album "Kings Disease" which describes his longevity in the industry. It's incredible to remain consistent and put out superb body of work. Nas is truly an inspiration. His transition from surviving, thriving to living is admirable. 

I featured a post about Nas on my blog for the documentary "Time Is Illmatic" as Brains Books and Beauty began to expand. Here I am today paying tribute to my silent mentor. Thank you for all you do and done with grace! 

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.
