Producer/Musicians – Rick Hertz, Arab Jones and LD teamed up with Singer/Songwriter Cocoa Sarai and “Robots” was born. So grab your wine, your chocolate’s, your lover and…
Claiming you want change, Give you glam and give you fame. Just a slave with your own chain. Now you made in the game singing, “No Love For Us.”
Tunji Ige’s The Love Project is above all a coming-of-age story, concentrating on Tunji’s life from ages 16 to 19. It’s a meditation on him as a young, black teenager dealing with relationships, rebellion, and the pressure to be cool. “For Us” is the opening song. Tunji says, “‘For Us’ I feel is a critique on the social climate as well as what someone like me has to battle through, being myself, especially with where I’m at. I’m an up-and-coming artist but still a young black kid who could be a victim to the system. ‘For Us’ is the conscience to balance this transition: Do you let it get to your head or do you keep pushing?”

How do you treat your self?
How do you share with others?
How do you show others how you fee?
How do you listen to a friend?
How do you make someone else feel good?
What does it take for you to love?
Do you love yourself?
Really love yourself?
Make sure you take care of yourself
Make sure you take care of your loved ones…
Make sure you take care of the human race…
whether you know them or not!
Don’ suffer and don’t let others suffer.
Don’t be afraid to take the initiative.
Don’t be afraid to put your heart on the table.
Don’t be afraid to show just how much you love someone.
Not just for your lover but for you mom, dad, mentor, friend…
A dinner or lunch made with love along with words of encouragement.
comes in many ways and the world needs a little bit
so just extend a hand, share your pain, give more hugs
and remember to smile. A smile could be a mood changer.
A gesture could save someones day even a life… so many people
feel they are alone with no options.
Let them know
they are not
alone but we are all in this
And they ask are you okay?
Somedays I feel
Somedays dont seem real
As I carry this sword of steel
Walking through the battlefield
Tryin to emotionally rebuild
What has been destroyed
My heart torn apart
Another fight is about to start
As I use the last piece of my heart
Swinging my sword at them
One goes down, my friend
This battle I want to end
A message of hope I send
To my friend who had my back
Now gone pain I retract
This is not an act
My heart I just want it back.
So Hov aka Jay Z aka Jay Hova released his “demo” tape for us with an image that has history. Of course, they aren’t talking about that but I WILL. Why? Because all artist/photographers should get their credit. It’s like a producer in music. Even though these days we don’t read cd insert credits like we use too and most the time producers don’t get their credits unless they know the business. BUT needless to say… this one is worth talking about. The same guy that took HOV’s demo photo is the same guy that was Biggie’s favorite photographer and was invited when most weren’t.
Same guy that has more than one pic of Jay Z.
And has images of Wayne when he was “little” and almost tat-less (making up words is cool).
And this IS NOT the first time this image has made it across the world. It is currently being shown in Paris, France at the Maison Folie Moulins as well as in Jersey City, NJ.
Excuses us, ladies and gentlemen, one, two

You said you was gonna take me to see Wu-Tang, baby

For over 30 years Ernie Paniccioli, who many call Brother Ernie, has captured the raw essence of graffiti and hiphop culture in New York and New Jersey. On Tuesday, Jan 13th we will honor him with a ceremony at Jersey City’s City Hall building. The show will include never seen before prints, personal artwork of Brother Ernies and have the chance to get your prints or books signed. He is a lovingly grumpy and totally great storyteller kind of guy who might look intimidating but is a cuddly bear who emanates love and respect.
After the show there will also be a Networking Mixer one block away starting at 9pm so join us – Bistro Cafe’! Meet with some of Jersey’s finest and continued conversations with hiphop legends. Brought to you by SocietyNeedsCulture.com Sounds by DJ Bizznice.
