Just watched this SJ vid of Ms. Hill…
She’s blessed to have both talents of singing and spitting. However, IMHO, I believe she should give up the former due to the weathering of her voice and start kicking some new shit. Because, despite the fact that she is probably the illest female emcee, there’s only so many years you can keep performing the same two albums (The Score and MisEducation).
A Jersey Girl
I am such a fan of this little girl. To be 16 years old and stand next to Jennifer Holliday and hold your own is amazing talent. And Ms. Holliday was not letting it be forgotten that this is still her song. :)
I don’t go crazy over these shows (in fact I rarely watch them), but the first time I heard Jessica sing I knew she is going to be a star. Bummed she didn’t win, but pray she has a successful life - not just a career in the often blinding limelight.
Goddess Mawu and husband Liza (which is also seen as Mawu’s twin).
Mawu is the mother goddess of Dahomey, Africa (The Fon peoples). She represents the moon and Liza represents the sun. Liza is thought of by the Fon people as harsh and fierce!
Mawu and Liza are inseparable and are known as the basis of the universe. Their happy and balanced relationship also means that the universe is happy and balanced.
"We’ve moved from wisdom to knowledge, and now we are moving from knowledge to information. And that information is so partial."
I’m starting to have all these beautiful dreams about my career and life’s purpose. They’re so precise and clear for the first time that I’m anxious for them to happen suddenly and all at once. But I will be patient and enjoy the journey, and soak up all the learning along the way.
