Toxic Tragedy

I finally watched Baby Boy the other day. Classic Hood movie? Yes, however tragedy more fits its description. The focal point of tragedy being the lack of hope, or the vanity of it .

Yvette continued to hold a torch for Jody although he cheated, lied, talked to her crazy and even had a baby on her. I wanted to reach through my phone and shake her till she realised she was the most powerful character there. She gave strength to his feeble clutch and fed his ‘power’ with her lack of self esteem.

The lack of hope must be a factor for a lot of realities. If you barely feel that goodness can come through for you, anything is permissable. I’m not sure if there’s a complete tangible way to help someone, encouragment of course is key. However, as corny as it sounds, it must start from believing for own self.

Maria Drea – I Am

Ooooooo she’s back! Yeah.. MARIA DREA! The one with the voice like velvet… And that production! The way it supports her voice and holds it up like a proud parent, magical!

I feel like Drea is just setting us up so nicely for when a full length project finally hits our airwaves.

Each day I get closer to closure

Vocals clean like a pin and spilling all the scorching tea in such an elegant way. Hello somebody!

I’m so excited for what she’s doing here, she’s being a SINGER. In a mainstream world lost in the literal sauce of begging for streams and likes, it’s great to see a new artist doing it for the love and craft.

Please never change and long may it continue. Let’s make sure we support and scream about singers like Maria Drea and the like.
