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...

Skin of the Sea

Natasha Bowen author of Skin of the Sea.  A way to survive. A way to serve. A way to save. Simi prayed to the gods, once. Now she serves them as Mami Wata—a mermaid—collecting the souls of those who die at sea and blessing their journeys back home.   But when a living boy is thrown overboard, Simi goes against an ancient decree and does the unthinkable—she saves his  life . And punishment awaits those who dare to defy the gods.   To protect the other Mami Wata, Simi must journey to the Supreme Creator to make amends. But all is not as it seems. There’s the boy she rescued, who knows more than he should. And something is shadowing Simi, something that would rather see her fail. . . .   Danger lurks at every turn, and as Simi draws closer, she must brave vengeful gods, treacherous lands, and legendary creatures. Because if she fails, she risks not only the fate of all Mami Wata, but also the world as she knows it. Resource:

  " This is for anyone who has searched to find his or her reflection. For our forebears, who laid the foundation but could only dream of our accomplishments. And for the future of ballet, in hopes that it would continue striving to be better, to see us, hear us, and to celebrate us." -M.C. Black Ballerinas:
