Tell the readers a little about yourself. I am an artist who enjoys several different spectrums of the art world. I am a spoken word artist, poet, sign language artist, singer and I love hip hop. How long have you been writing your poetry? I’ve been writing since I was about five. I still have my very first poem I have not let it go since and I’ve been writing ever since. Was it difficult to transition from poetry to hip hop or was it like a natural thing? Yeah, it was natural. I grew up in up-state New York in the ‘70s, so I was there when hip hop was really kind of starting. So, it was natural to try and rap. Actually, rap was really my foundation. Then I became a more serious poet. Who was it that got you into trying to rhyme when you were younger? I think that it just came natural. My mother was the one that always tried to foster whatever interests she saw in me. So, I paint, I draw and I always had an infinity for words. I didn’t really have any influences earlier. Who or what influenced you to get into the music aspect of it? Actually, I’ve been singing all my life since I was about five or six. I started singing in a small church school. It had kindergar-

ten through 12th grade in one room. Do you perform at a lot of open mics or ciphers here in Birmingham or around the state? I have...I started performing in Birmingham around ‘96...I started with the Slam. Then I kind of just moved into the open mics and performing. I’ve done a lot of different open mics over the years. Now I’m moving towards just scheduled performances. Is there anyone in your family that is in the entertainment business? My sister, she has a tremendous gift for writing. Where was the Slam that you participated in? Here in Birmingham. While doing your hip hop have you opened up for anybody? Not yet, but I have performed at City Stages where we had a poetry stage. So, I’ve done my thing there. I’ve done the Jazz Festival here. I like to refer to my work as “hiphopetry” its kind of hip hop and poetry mixed together. What inspired you to make jewelry? I consider myself as a woman who has a big personality, very colorful and I love big ear rings. I love ear rings that make a statement. I’ve always been into costume jewelry more so than fine jewelry. I saw someone in Atlanta that had on a pair of ear rings that I liked and I made a pair...people went bananas. Then the orders started flooding in. So, what makes Yogi Dada unique is that they are all hand painted and no two pair of ear rings are alike and I do custom orders. What does Yogi dada mean? The dada comes from Dadaism which is the school of though in the art world that art is whatever you believe it is. How can people order your ear rings? Go to www.facebook.com/yogidada you can check out some of my previous designs, some of my custom orders, orders for school, different artistic groups and I started working on men’s medallions. What is the name of your book? The book is called the Eternal Communicator. It’s available on amazon.com. It’s a two-sided book the Eternal Communicator is my softer more inspirational side of my poetry. It’s also coupled with some powerful photography by Merika N. Johnson, Avery Carter and Chester Colston. The second half of the book is the Chameleon Assassin, which is my alter ego. The Chameleon Assassin was born in 2007 where I was

identifying another facet of my performance. This book has been a long time coming. My audience would always inquire, after seeing me perform, about taking the experience home in a book or on CD. I just decided that it was time to put my words and my heart into a hard copy. How long did it take you to put your book together? This is actually a book of poetry from over a lifetime. I have my very first poem in here that my mother kept in purple crayon since I was five. Most of these poems are up until I think...2008. The book itself took a long time. My mother was sick with cancer in 2007. The book and everything artistic took a big hold for several years. It took a lot of spiritual and internal strength to finish this project. Are you a Birmingham native?

Page 13

I was born in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. I think my parents stayed there maybe a month then we moved to up-state New York...Ithaca where I was raised for several years. Then we spent several years in Rochester, New York. When did you get to Birmingham? I kind of ping ponged. I got to Birmingham when I was 17. I ended up completing my degree at UAB. In ‘99 I had the opportunity to move back to New York, so I went and stayed for two years. Due to some family things going on in Birmingham, I came back...and I’ve been here ever since. Outside of your book have you had any of your work published anywhere else? A few magazines here and there, but not to this capacity. How can someone book you?

You can contact me via email at yogiecca@yahoo.com Do you have any shout outs that you’d like to give? Definitely to Marika N. Johnson and the local artists here that have supported me.

The following Music Critiques were carefully listen to and reviewed by our panel of judges. Each judge gave a valid critique based on their professional opinion and rated the artist music as such…

will hurt you. I know u wanna show u are real and you been through something, but save all that for your album cuts. Even if this song is clean, Commercial Radio will shoot it down with no remorse.

Briccmade Records – C. B. G. Gang “Can’t Fold It” Mayhem says… PJ says… Nice flow & track. Cool rap style. Try to get your point across with out the use of profanity. D.J. Whitebread says… The Pros… It’s a Hood song that will get a lot of spins in a hood hole in the wall club. It could make you hood rich. The Cons… Hood songs that make you hood rich normally don’t make it mainstream. Tim says… I like the chorus and the music on this song. The voice of the rapper has a story that should be told. This song is an album cut that strictly needs to be heard only on the CD.

Naimah feat. K. Clark “Circles” CJ says… This is not a single, this is more an album cut. Putting this out as a single will hurt you. I know u wanna show u are real and you been through something,

Mayhem says… The Pros… This song would be loved by every genre and age group. It has a great sound quality, the concept is fresh and not one we hear very often. Mixed and mastering sounds great. Overall track is clean. Very marketable. The Cons… Lyrics could have rode better to the beat. PJ says… Not a good mix on the track, vocals sound distorted at times. Cool use of auto tune, but not needed.

D.J. Whitebread says… The Pros… It has the mainstream Alternative club feel to it and it will sell in a crossover market. With the lady Gaga and Madonna type club scene. The Cons… I can’t find any

Tim says… There are only two things that are hot on this song that would make it in the music industry. The young lady that is singing the chorus and the beat of the music. The rapper sounds like she should be doing poetry, but not this kind. It sounds like the rapper is having a hard time with the words coming out of her mouth.

Kastro “Doin My Thang” CJ says… Ok, gave it a listen and I like the track. But the verses I didn’t really care for. Sounds like the same things Future and Gucci talking about. Mayhem says… The Pros… Crisp delivery, and the lyrics ride to the beat. Lyrics are well thought out and sound recording is decent. The Cons… I wouldn’t buy it. This song would have been really popular two or three years ago. Not a song that you can’t wait to hear again. PJ says… Cool track & flow. Typical subject matter.

D.J. Whitebread says… The Pros… It has a mainstream feel I like it. The Cons… I can’t find any.

Tim says… I can hear this artist on the radio. The voice of the rapper along gets my attention. The only problem I have with this song’s music is it sounds like this is the person first time mixing. I would like to hear this song again without the kiddy mixing parts of the music.


Tim says… This song would have been hot a couple of years ago on the radio.

DYNOMITE KIDD “Haters Everywhere” CJ says… Haters Everywhere! I agree there are haters everywhere . This joint is not an album cut or single. Sounds more like a concept record. This Joint I do believe has potential, but you guys need to get back in the studio re-do the track, and once done make sure u get a REAL MIX AND MASTER ON THIS SONG! Mayhem says… The Pros… Catchy and very commercial. This song can play at any venue, any age will like it, makes you want to dance, and the sound quality is good…not muffled. The Cons… The concept has been way to abused…far from original. You almost don’t have to listen to it…its like you know what’s going to be said next. PJ says… Needs to enunciate more. D.J. Whitebread says… This song would have been hot a couple of years ago. It really would have made it on the radio. This is a nice song but not now. I would say that this song can be hot right now if you change the name of the title. “Haters” keep up with the era of the music, change the name and then let me list to it again. Trust me I am not be a hater…

The Yogi Dada Collection By Yogi E.C. Order yours today at www.facebook.com/yogidada

Kyrin “Move Some” Mayhem says… The Pros… Tweens would love this song, its very commercial and I could hear something like this on the radio. The Cons… Its borderline annoying to listen to, not mixed right and not mastered at all. The lyrics have a ABC feel.

PJ says… Took too long for the first verse to come in. Sounds like a home recording.

D.J. Whitebread says… Nice kiddy tune! Tim says… Call me crazy but this is a hot song. It would take a brave DJ to play this in the club. The music is hot. I can see the girls going crazy on this one here. It also sounds like some parts of the songs need to be fixed. GO GO music…

www.g-entmagazine.net Tell the readers a little about yourself. My name is Sen Royalty. I used to be lead singer of a rock band. I left the band and went solo...started working with a producer. I debuted my music on reverbnation last year on November 23. Since then it shot up to #1. My song just debuted on a radio station in California called krmwradio.com, 95.3 The Razor’s Edge (if you live in California). I do rock, rap, r&b...I try to mix it. Tell us about your song Venom. If you listen to the song you will hear kind of a hissing in it. I purposely did that using a lot of “S” to bring more appeal to the whole Venom state. That’s my Rock...Rap...I put a little bit of R&B in there because I sing, rap, scream...whatever rock. I just mixed it all on that one. It’s a truly hybrid song. Where were you born? I was born in Dallas County, Selma, Alabama. I was fortunate enough to move across the states. I ended up back in Talladega, Alabama where I finished high school. I went to college Alabama State University Marching Hornet… Crème Trumpet section. I was offered full scholarships to the University of Alabama & Alabama State. They sent their scouts to my high school because I was always All County, All State...section leader… Who or what influenced you to get into the music industry? I always loved it. My father was the lead singer of a blues/rock band. I would say just the love of music. Who have you worked with? The only person that I’ve worked with is my producer He’s D Boi. He’s the CEO of Energy House Entertainment and he is also an artist. I want to work with a lot of people and a lot of people want to work with me, but we haven’t worked things out to do that yet. How would you describe your music?

Page 19 I would say its more like a blend instead of a collaboration. You have a lot of artists that say their Rock when all their doing is rapping over a Rock track. Me coming from Rock, rap groups and singing in the church choir I’ve actually able to just blend it and not just stack it on top of each other. How does it feel to be #1 on Reverbnation? It feels great! I still feel like I have a long way to go. Hopefully that will get me the recognition to work with a lot more producers and artists. How has the music industry treated you so far? Anybody that’s trying to get into the music industry...it aint for the weak hearted and the gullible. Have you had any radio spins locally? No, not yet. I’ve approached a couple of stations in Montgomery and if it’s a predominantly Hip Hop station they’d say I’m too Rock, if it’s a Rock or R&B station they’d say I’m too Rap...They didn’t know what to do with me until Dirty Diamonds contacted me. It used to get to me real bad. Are you working on anything now? I wish...its one of those things like my producer is very busy working on his album and he has a family. Right now he really doesn’t have time for me for real. Its just different things have been put on the back burner for different reasons. He’s a great guy and friend its just I’m going off of his time. If I could be in the studio all day everyday I would. My music has been in demand for so long...people are always asking “when is your music coming out?” I’ve been pushing hard and we finally got “Venom” out. Then we got “Loveless” out and its not even mixed. So, people haven’t heard the best version yet. How can you be reached? www.reverbnation.com/ senroyalty

www.twitter.com/ senisarockstar www.facebook.com/ senroyalty www.energyhouseent.com www.krmwradio.com Do you have any shout outs? First, I want to shout out my family, my love ones, those who have my back, those that don’t have my back...love me...hate me...I want to shout out all the fans, Energy House Entertainment, Dirty Diamonds at KRMW the Razor’s Edge and future artists and producers that I will be working with. I also want to give a shout out to Terrance Steel at New Urban Cinema www.newurbancinema.com

I am a go getter, responsible and like thingLadies, when you meet that tall, dark and handsome fella; does your brain immediately start to dream about you walking down the aisle and he’s the groom at the end? Of course your mind does this. We all have fallen victim to this fantasy. While our initial meeting fantasy is of the wedding, just keep in mind that the guy’s initial fantasy meeting is that of a sexual nature. He’s day dreaming about hitting it and how soon can he get in those drawers. Men and women think on totally different plains. Just like author John Gray of “Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus describes in his book. We think differently, handle stressful situations differently and we even love differently. But with all of those differences, we still crave for each other’s love and attention. Basically we can’t live without each other. Within in that craving lies the need to be complete or looking for that special someone to complete us. The Yin to our Yang, the Clark to our Lois, and the Adam to our Eve. You know exactly what I’m talking about. You want the ultimate mate, lover, and the knight in shining armor. You want your husband.

Why is it that women crave to be married more than men do? Could it be that little girl’s minds are conditioned to do so by their parents and society? Throughout a female’s life span, parents instill this process in a girl’s mind along with the good morals and values that they teach. Parents promise you that if you’re a good wholesome little girl that grows up to be a respectable young lady, then your dream guy will find you and marry you? Or, could it be that those Barbie dolls that you played with always needed a Ken doll to make Barbie look complete? Or, how about all of these Romantic Comedy movies that somehow have a wedding at the beginning, middle or end of the film? Name one Rom Com that didn’t involve a wedding in its film? It’s hard to think of one isn’t it? And what audience are those films targeting? Women of course! Not only films, but look at all of

these Reality Television Shows that are based on women finding the perfect mate or the guy choosing the perfect girl to marry. The Bachelorette is the main reality vehicle that has women between the ages of 18-49 hooked week after week with following the Bachelorette searching for her perfect man. This show alone pulls in over 7.5 million viewers on a weekly basis. So, that’s a nice percentage of the American population buying into the fantasy of the Bachelorette molding her perfect man or making one of these guys be “the one”.

Could it be that our desire to marry runs deeper than the fact that Society and Hollywood is cramming it down our throats every few seconds? For those that are Christians or believe in the Christian faith, the Bible teaches us in Proverbs 18:22 that “Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favor of the LORD”. For those of us that go to church, we hear this and other scriptures that pertain to marriage in Minister’s sermons constantly. Not only that, but Faith based and New Age churches have Single’s Ministries and Couple’s Ministries. In the Single’s Ministries, this ministry is suppose to be a support group for those church members who are not married to interact and socialize together. Secondly, they re-teach Proverbs 18:22 on a constant basis. Also, an appointed minister teaches these group members on how to build a deeper, sincere relationship with God while waiting on God to send their true mate.

s


I Also, to abstain from lust, sex, and other sinful pleasures that will set this person up for future heartwww.g-entmagazine.net ache and further damage to one’s soul. When being a single at a church that’s has a huge married population, it can be difficult at times. Especially when most members see being “single” as a handicap. Sometimes, certain members in these support groups can feel isolated and rejected by church members at large. Especially when some married ladies look down their noses at women who have never been married before or that are divorced. Also, it can be twice as disheartening when the female is extremely attractive. Most married and other single ladies alike may see her as competition or a threat. That’s why the Single’s Ministry at some churches can be a double edge sword instead of a healthy building block to one’s future. It is important that not only the minister that is appointed to that ministry keep the people’s head’s lifted up, but he should make them feel like being single is a blessing instead of a curse. In I Corinthians 7: 8-9 it says, “I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I. But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn”. In this scripture, Paul was stating how single people have less stress and concerns than married people and how he and his peace of mind are better for it. It is equally important that the Pastor of that Church stresses those same ideas and values to his or her members at large so those members will be more welcoming to the singles that attend that church. My only problem with some Single’s Ministries is that they don’t go beyond the Bible when preparing single’s for the married life. I think some churches should stress the importance of learning to love one’s self first. Next, the minister of that group should have two assistant ministers to help him or her set up individual counseling sessions with members of that group. Also, they should have bankers and financial advisors come in as guest speakers to teach the members on budgeting money and the positive and negative aspects of individual and joint checking accounts. Next, have a loan officer from the bank and a representative from a Mortgage company come, in as guest speakers. Last but certainly not least, have a divorce lawyer come in and be a guest speaker to this group of people as too. am a go getter, responsible and like things i I

It wouldn’t hurt for them to hear the top five reasons why married couples divorce. God wants us to find a balance when navigating this journey on Earth. In my opinion, some people are just too spiritual and can’t operate in the natural, while some are too natural and can’t operate in the spiritual. You have to find your balance, love yourself, and build your relationship with God from there. Otherwise, I think most people will always be disappointed. I conducted a brief interview with Senior Pastor/Founder Michael D. McClure Jr of The Rock Church and asked him why do women try to make every guy they date into the marrying type? And his response was … I believe many women are honestly looking for the fairy tale! The knight in shining armor to run in and sweep them off their feet and then live happily ever after, only to discover that the knight they Thought they saw was only a fool dressed in tin foil. Even from birth parents place a subliminal expectation on little girls, to be someone’s “princess or queen” and as a consequence many grow up really searching for their King! And let’s be real, who doesn’t want someone to share their life with, so many times in our quest to end the exhaustive search for love we try to make Mr. Right NOW, Mr. Right!

. I also asked Pastor McClure what are some signs that women should look for to let them know that he’s not “The One”? Ahhhh, that’s a truncated question that is different in each case, but to answer it as honestly as possible, “That feeling” Every woman is born with a 6th sense that they have to start listening to. The reason I push thousands of single women at “The Rock” Church to grow deeper and stronger in GOD is because dating in the 21st century is not only difficult but impossible to navigate without GOD. Ask GOD for a spirit of discernment and trust it. A wise man once said, “when you know, you know…” Trust your heart. I asked Physiologist Alison Byrd of Auburn, Alabama what is the best advice that she can give to a single woman waiting for her husband to find her? And she gave the following…

“I will say that she should stop waiting for her husband to find her because that is the wrong approach. A single woman who gives off vibes or states she is looking to get married as soon as possible will unfortunately attract the type of men I


I she is trying to avoid. Any single woman wanting to get

married should honestly stop focusing on finding a husband and take care of themselves. They should work on themselves, building themselves up to the standard they are looking for in a man. They should date men whom they enjoy spending time with because they are kind and respectful, they are open, and they are goal oriented and a go-getter like her. When she finds that one of these men stand out to her more, then she might focus on getting to know him better if he is feeling the same way about her. When she has a clear answer to the top 3 signs about if he is "The One", and then it is up to her if she allows the relationship to move any faster than just friends who really like each other”. On a side note, Mrs. Byrd also added… “I also believe that we should not neglect our little boys when it comes to this subject. If we do not teach our sons to respect all women, even the ones who do not respect themselves, the cycle of needy women connecting with oblivious men will continue”. Whereas Pastor McClure recommended that women Read “Dr. R.A Vernon’s 10 Rules of Dating.” When I posted this question on my Facebook profile, Facebook users answered as such… “he who finds a wife finds a good thing, not she that finds

a husband. Know that God has design someone just for you, be patience, and wait on the Lord!!” Wee Will “Not every woman does that. I know a whole lot of women who have dated men just too past time. Have casual sex because they want to get laid ...not get a man. This is the real world 2012 only an extremely needy woman does that.

“Not every woman does that. I know a whole lot of women who have dated men just too past time. Have casual sex because they want to get laid ...not get a man. This is the real world 2012 only an extremely needy woman does that. Frankly if she tries to make every guy she date into a potential husband...SHE AIN'T WIFEL MATERIAL...SHE GOT ISSUES. So... That's a lot...but it don't get any more real”.

to be a husband is looking for a woman that can and will be able to stand alone and handle her business like he can. That way as a team a lot more can be achieved. Barack and Michelle work because they are outstanding as individuals but as a team they are leaders of the free world”... Comedian Brandon Bizzy B. Foster


IIn conclusion, with all these different people from different backgrounds, races, religions and ethnicities; they have all said the same thing that we as women have allowed our parents, society and the media to influence us to become princesses and queens who are sitting around like mindless puppets waiting on Mr. Right or Prince Charming to come and rescue us from the world of a dating hell. In our rescue, we want Prince Charming to whisk us off our feet and take us to his beautiful castle in the sky. However, the reality of the situation isn’t so fairy tale like. In the real world, there’s a shortage of men that are ready to settle down and become a one woman’s man. With a shortage of highly successful men and plenty of women looking for someone to take care of them, only a few scenarios will happen… a go getter, responsible and

like things in order. I

Would you tell the readers a little about yourself? I’m from Gadsden, Alabama. I’ve been singing since I was 4 or 5. I’ve been in talents shows since I was 7 and I was always in anything that had to do with the arts. Recently, we decided that we wanted to go back to making music. I started back in 1998, that’s when I met my husband (T-Crook) he’s my producer, we started a small company D4 Entertainment. Things didn’t go as planned, so we stopped and things picked back up in 2007. Where the plays that you were a part of school or church events? No, not any school events. There was a lady that was trying to bring Tyler Perry type of plays to Gadsden and we had to audition for here. Since my first play with her I’ve done five others. I’ve helped with the songs, my husband does all of the music for the plays and if she wants to use me I just go on down.

Page 29

much love...Alabama Hott Radio and Alabama Tight Folks, but nobody else. Is there anybody that you would like to collab with? B.O.B., M.C. Lyte and Queen Latifah. How has the industry treated you so far? Very well, I’ve been featured on Brooklyn Hott Radio & Atlanta Hott Radio. Are you working on anything right now? My CD has been out since September, but people are just now catching on and I have like four songs on the CD. We are just going to push that. I just made my first mix tape Mazeratti Records and the name of my album is Chay Crews.

What are the titles of the plays? Her name is Brigette Lovelace-Howard. The first play was Class Picnic, Family Reunion and there are more but its been awhile.

If anybody wanted to reach you how could they get in contact with you? www.reverbnation/chaycrews

(256) 504-3227

Did you play any instruments or sing in the church choir?

Do you have any shout outs?

Yes, in elementary school I tried to do the violin. I think I just stuck with singing. My parents saw that I could sing and they put me in a small choir that turned into a big international choir. It was called IYC International Youth Choir.

To everybody...my whole family...my husband, G Lo, Hot Rod, Lee Tha Beast, Cristyle, Alabama Hott Radio, Cain Carter, Ms. Mercy and Naimah.

What was it that made you want to transition from singing to Hip Hop? Honestly, I didn’t think I could do it as far as rapping goes because my parents where not about the whole rap thing. My parents were very strict. If I was going to sing it had to be clean. So, I did what I was supposed to do when I was there with them. In 2007 this rap started coming out of me and I liked the way that it sounded and no one was going to stop me. I still sing, but I do Hip Hop first because I couldn’t do it then. Who made you want to get into the Hip Hop industry? M.C. Lyte, Queen Latifah, M.C. Trouble, M.C. Smooth, I love Yo Yo she really owns herself as a woman and Lauren Hill. Have you opened up for any main-stream artists? Yes, I opened up for Destiny’s Child. They came to Gadsden in November of 2000. I got a chance to speak with Matthew and he told me what I needed and things like that. I will never forget that day ever. Have you collaborated with any other artists? I have not collaborated with anybody in Gadsden. To be honest there is not a lot of love there. Birmingham has shown me so

TONKA TOUGH


Acknowledgement

I would like to give credit to the women that have inspired me to speak my heart: Firstly, my grandmother Isa Lee Tillman (rest her soul), First Lady Angela Moore of Clarkston First Baptist Church, Bernadine Tillman and Jennifer Kitt.

Its has been said and proven for years that Tonka trucks are made with steel and rugged plastic, and guaranteed for life! Did you know that "Tonka" means "great" in Sioux? A virtuous woman can wear that symbol with pride…TONKA PRIDE. I desire to bring forth to you the ultimate lady. She is known as the "virtuous woman" and a clear look at her will be displayed through the intimate depths of her moral fiber that manifest itself in certain substantial qualities. The virtuous woman of Proverbs 31 especially stands out today in contrast to the "modern woman.” I offer that the virtuous woman of Proverbs 31 positions as an ideal illustration of God's woman today viewed from such facets as wife, mother, a member of society, entrepreneur, and property-owner. Let me illustrate to you how she is Tonka Tough: Godly vs. Modern 1. Faith - A Virtuous Woman serves God with all of her heart, mind, and soul. She seeks His will for her life and follows His ways. (Proverbs 31: 26, Proverbs 31: 29 – 31, Matthew 22: 37, John 14: 15, Psalm 119: 15 a. We put TRUST in man when we should trust them to do what they will. Man will forsake us and lead us astray. We take pieces of the

Photography by D. Jerome Smedley Make up & style by Stacey Pollard Model : Avyon

bible to make them fit our moments of self gratification. 2. Marriage – A Virtuous Woman respects her husband. She does him good all the days of her life. She is trustworthy and a helpmeet. (Proverbs 31: 11- 12, Proverbs 31: 23, Proverbs 31: 28, 1 Peter 3, Ephesians 5, Genesis2: 18) b. Man is not perfect and neither is woman as much as we think we are. If you want to piece the bible then start at the rib of Adam. We were made for man. Believe it or not man can not survive or flourish with US. WE hold the power to tomorrow. 3. Mothering - A Virtuous Woman teaches her children the ways of her Father in heaven. She nurtures her children with the love of Christ, disciplines them with care and wisdom, and trains them in the way they should go. (Proverbs 31: 28, Proverbs 31: 26, Proverbs 22: 6, Deuteronomy 6, Luke 18: 16) c. Morals and Respect. We have to teach our children to respect themselves, their belongings and others. The bible does say spare the rod …spoil the child. It does not say abuse the child or neglect the child. Sparing the rod is not stressing self worth, not pressing respect, not informing the child of the true good and evil. As a mother we sometimes have to give tough love. That is that love that hurts us both right now but in the end the child will so thankful for it.

4. Health – A Virtuous Woman cares for her body. She prepares healthy food for her family. (Proverbs 31: 14 – 15, Proverbs 31: 17, 1 Corinthians 6: 19, Genesis 1: 29, Daniel 1, Leviticus 11d. We learn that our bodies are our temples. The truth is that the buildings we go to worship in are just that. Our bodies are God’s holy place so we must treat them as such. What we put in and on our paints the picture of whom we are. And it has been learned that a picture can say a lot. As women, mothers, wives and role models what we intake flows into the ones around us. In order to produce a good harvest in life we must plant good seeds in rich soil .5. Service - A Virtuous Woman serves her husband, her family, her friends, and her neighbors with a gentle and loving spirit. She is charitable. (Proverbs 31: 12, Proverbs 31: 15, Proverbs 31: 20, 1 Corinthians 13: 13) e. We learn that our bodies are our temples. The truth is that the buildings we go to worship in are just that. Our bodies are God’s holy place so we must treat them as such. What we put in and on our paints the picture of whom we are. And it has been learned that a picture can say a lot. As women, mothers, wives and role models what we intake flows into the ones around us. In order to produce a good harvest in life we must plant good seeds in rich soil.

5. Service - A Virtuous Woman serves her husband, her family, her friends, and her neighbors with a gentle and loving spirit. She is charitable. (Proverbs 31: 12, Proverbs 31: 15, Proverbs 31: 20, 1 Corinthians 13: 13)e. We learn that our bodies are our temples. The truth is that the buildings we go to worship in are just that.

As women, mothers, wives and role models what we intake flows into the ones around us. In order to produce a good harvest in life we must plant good seeds in rich soil. 6. Finances - A Virtuous Woman seeks her husband’s approval before making purchases and spends money wisely. She is careful to purchase quality items which her family needs. (Proverbs 31: 14, Proverbs 31: 16, Proverbs 31: 18, 1 Timothy 6: 10, Ephesians 5: 23, Deuteronomy 14: 22, Numbers 18: 26) f. The first thing that comes to mind is “SHOPPING”. Yet when the paycheck comes or the tax return is deposited, do we give back as God has given us. It is up to you to ensure that the 10 % is at least given. The problem is most that do not understand that thinks that it is all about the cash. We need to think of what is NEEDED not all about what is wanted. Finances come in time and money. 7. Industry – A Virtuous Woman works willingly with her hands. She sings praises to God and does not grumble

Page 39

while completing her tasks. (Proverbs 31: 13, Proverbs 31: 16, Proverbs 31: 24, Proverbs 31: 31, Philippians 2: 14) g. Just because it doesn’t come from a store does not meant that it is worthless. The things that come from store are made by others which means that you have that same ability to create something great. Nowadays society wants to focus being organic. Organic are those things home grown with love and nurture. 8. Homemaking – A Virtuous Woman is a homemaker. She creates an inviting atmosphere of warmth and love for her family and guests. She uses hospitality to minister to those around her. (Proverbs 31: 15, Proverbs 31: 20 – 22, Proverbs 31: 27, Titus 2: 5, 1 Peter 4: 9, Hebrews 13: 2) h. An very dominant saying states that cleanliness is close to godliness. We have to take pride in what we have, own, working for and believe that will be. Cooking the meals, cleaning house, keeping the yard, washing clothes, working on the car and educating the children does not makes us slaves but free to spread the love that God has bestowed on us through our works. Those works are what makes life worth living. 9. Time - A Virtuous Woman uses her time wisely. She works diligently to complete her daily tasks. She does not spend time dwelling on those things that do not please the Lord. (Proverbs 31: 13, Proverbs 31: 19, Proverbs 31: 27, Ecclesiastes 3, Proverbs 16: 9, Philippians 4:8 ) i. SELF EXPLANITORY

10. Beauty – A Virtuous Woman is a woman of worth and beauty. She has the inner beauty that only comes from Christ. She uses her creativity and sense of style to create beauty in her life and the lives of her loved ones. (Proverbs 31: 10Proverbs 31: 21 – 22, Proverbs 31: 24 -25, Isaiah 61: 10, 1 Timothy 2: 9, 1 Peter 3: 1 – 6) j. Beauty starts from the inside out. A person can have the most flawless skin, silky hair, marvelous shape and immaculate dress but still be one of thee most ugliest persons to walk the earth. What we put in our bodies show through the skin, how we treat our bodies draws the attention of others and how we carry ourselves leaves the lifetime impression. We must do away with the “filters of society” so we can see what is right in our faces. For the longest time, society has dictated the meaning of being a housekeeper to such a vast degree that we miss the lessons God wants us to learn from this meticulous passage of scripture. God would never set us up to fail and if so many women feel a failure because of their inability to be an excellent housekeeper all at the same time as working full time, or running a business or ministry or both, something must be wrong… with the way WE see and do things. No, we will by no means be perfect, as in faultless, but we can be just what the doctor ordered in God's eyes by becoming devoted to Him. By doing this, we can be like the woman in Proverbs 31...far above rubies!

When did u catch a love jones for fashion? I caught a love jones for fashion around age 5. I used to take my father's socks and cut them up to make clothes for my Barbie dolls. Needless to say, that got me into a lot of trouble! The older I got, the more my interest became a real passion. I started reading all the fashion magazines and learning about the major fashion designers and trends. Have you attended any fashion institutes or schools? After high school, I became serious about my passion and studied fashion & textile design full-time at The University of Alabama for some time and American Intercontinental University in Atlanta, GA afterwards. Through that, I learned the importance of shape, color, draping, sewing and much more. How did u come up with the concept of designing handbags & luggage? I absolutely love clutch purses but became frustrated with the lack of options available here. Our city may not be as large as New York City or L.A., but that doesn't mean that we can't be as fashionable. I decided to fill that void by making my own clutches in the colors and prints I wanted. After carrying a few around and getting compliments on them, I then had my "ah ha" moment and came up with the idea of starting my own line for other ladies who share my love for an attention-grabbing handbag. In time, I would love to include luggage, dresses, and jewelry.

Where do you draw inspiration for your designs? I can find inspiration in anything. Right now, I love bright colors and prints which you will see in my upcoming line. If someone wanted to place an order, how would they go about contacting you? Everyone can check out the Glam Addiction page on Facebook. Anyone interested in purchasing a clutch can either inbox me via email at glam.addiction@yahoo.com or via Facebook at mslolarabbit@facebook.com. Be sure to include the item name of your interest in the email. Also, be sure to read the FAQ section of the Glam Addiction page for more questions regarding the ordering process and shipping. Do u have any shout outs? I would love to shout-out G-Entertainment Magazine for providing me with the opportunity to showcase my talent. I would also like to shout out G.E.M. Models: Brittany McMoore, Stormi Boddie, Avera Guthrie, Zsamia Calmese-Reedus for an amazing photo shoot, photographer D Jerome Smedley, and last but not least my friends and family who continues to be my support system. Thanks to you all!


Tell the readers a little about yourself. I’m 26 years old but I’ve been a musician for fifteen plus years. I picked up the trumpet when I was eleven and couldn’t put it down. I look at music as a necessity, I couldn’t make it through life, much less a day without it. I’m very diverse as far as my musical roots and what I listen to. I love everything from classical to jazz, hip hop to classic rock Where were you born? I was born and raised in a suburm of Alabama and graduated from Hoover high school and went to auburn as a psychology major. Who influenced you to get into music? I’ve had a lot of amazing musicians in and out of my life over the years, but as far as who really got me into hip hop, Id say it was kind of an accident. I just sat down one day and started writing, threw on a beat, and a few hours later I had my first song. Cant really say it was a great song, but a song none the less. After that I just couldn’t put the pen down, I was hooked, What type of a style do you have? My style is very much my own and very open ended and I try not to imitate other artists and am searching for something unique. My style has been Immortal Technique among a few others, which happen to be more from the underground scene. I take any kind of diverse beat and twist them to fit the message that I’m to convey. My favorite artists are the ones who can manipulate the beats with their lyrics and vice versa. I think a true lyricist can take whatever has been given and make it their own.

How long have you been in the rap game? I don’t really consider myself a rapper, but more of a lyricist. I do just as much spoken word as I do lyrical music. I’m passionate about any way to get my point across. Lately I’ve been in the studio developing music and narrowing what I want to say and how I want to say it. What are you working on now? My producer is really excited about my new project, we've pulled together a group of cuts that Ive been working on for a while and the project is coming out nicely and expected to come out late next summer Have you worked with any artists in the city? If so, who? I have had the pleasure of working with Clarence Muhammad, Lee Tha Beast, and Cano Cain, and in every situation it had been inspirational! If someone wanted to book you for a show or an event, how can you be reached? You can call my producer Mike Clarke at Digi Trax Productions at (205)305-2111 Do you have any shout outs? I want to thank my family for being behind me 100%, and my sister in particular for putting up with all my shenanigans over the years. My producer, Mike Clarke, deserves the most recognition for believing in me and giving me the chance to succeed when no one else would, that’s something I’ll never forget and will forever be

Hey Gunsmoke would you tell the readers a little about yourself? Bang baby, I’m from Mobile, Alabama. I’m just another artist out here trying to do my thing. I’m self made… I back myself...I cosign myself. If a deal ain’t looking for me I really ain’t looking for a deal. I’m trying to get my music to my people man. I feel like this story here has went untold for way too long. The people keep telling me that they are waiting to hear from me, so I’m gone get it out there… you know what I mean. I’ve been doing this for a couple of years now maybe two or three years. I can’t say that rap has always been my dream, but it’s another avenue and its another level. They always talking about money. That rap money look like long money to me and I’m trying to see some of it. What was it that actually made you get into music? The S.W.A.T. Team… The S.W.A.T. Team? Yeah, if you get up in the morning and your followed from your house by a white Escalade and your brought back to your house shortly by the S.W.A.T Team it will help you get things in perspective. Were there any other artists that were an inspiration to you in making your music? Certainly, I don’t know how far back you want to go… anything from what Rick Ross doing right now to what Michael Jackson was doing back then (he didn’t touch those boys either… you see they came forward after he…). Yeah, you could go back to Earth, Wind and Fire which was certainly before my time; but all that great music man I try to soak it in and let it channel through me. You know let it be an inspiration to how I send my message out to the people to let them know what I’ve been through and what I’m doing. When the people hear your

Page 59

music what should they expect? They should expect my side of the story. I mean everybody ain’t necessarily come from a big city. I come from a place where there might not be a Ferrari or a Lamborgini in the city. So, ballin’ down there ain’t exactly what your used to hearing about. But one thang about it you gone get the truth. You gone get how it really went down ’cause I was there I did that. Its from first person not from second person. This ain’t my homeboy story… this ain’t my kinfolk story unless I tell you it is. This is my real life testimony on wax. Have you worked with any other artists in Mobile, Birmingham or in Alabama period? Shout out to my nigga Bonified, shout out to my nigga Pyrex aka Prada, shout out to Choppa T and his fam. Are you working on anything right now? Yeah, we working on this mix tape man... Gun Powder coming soon, Cowboys and Aliens coming soon and Gun Show the Album coming sooner than you think. How can you be reached to do a show etc.? You can contact me at gunsmoke251@gmail.com, gunsmoke251 on youtube www.twitter.com/ gunsmoke251 or (251) 377-6153 Do you have any other shout outs that you would like to give? Fo sho, shout out to my nigga Last Mr. Big, shout out to my nigga Senile. If I missed you blame my mind and not my heart.
