Blessed & Grateful

I am so proud to announce that my hard work and dedication has paid off.

I always put Allah first and give Allah the praise. He has blessed me and I’m grateful for the favors He has bestowed on me.

I’m so happy that I received the Recognition I humbly deserve.

I humbly thank Allah so much for the organization Youth Empowerment Institute and the sponsors who decided to honor me 10/05/2019 at the TAHAD FESTIVAL 2019 as the recipient of the Long Island Golden Era of Hip Hop Award.

Alhumdulillah ( all praise is due to Allah)

The Citation from The Honorable Siela Bynoe Nassau County Legislator, District 2. Where I was born and raised.

From the tracks I’ve laid, to the path I’ve blazed, I’m honored to express and share the experience with my fans and colleagues.

I give back to the community because I care. I give back because it’s the right thing to do. I give back because I love you. I’m taught to be kind and respectful and be truthful. I’m taught to enjoin what is right and fibid what is wrong. I’m taught to tie my camel and be strong. Have patience and hope for the best.

I want my sisters to know that we are royalty. We are treasures beyond measures. Being women in hip hop we’re more than just females with bodies and a cute face, sassy mouth, or a cash flow with no where to go. We are strong women, educated and gifted. We are mothers, wifey, sisters, entrepreneurs, mentors, inspiration, advocates, and Queens. We are leadership and we have a voice.

We can reach and teach and be examples. We represent. We don’t need to degrade ourselves to prove nothing to nobody. I don’t want to throw anyone under the bus, but some women have thrown themselves over the bus and steering our young ladies on a rocky path. I believe there’s still hope and change will come.

I pray that the youth can recognize the pure innocence and power of the pen along with prayer, to be the tools and instruments used while trail blazing a path or journey to the success of their choice.

Be it an artist, manager, writer, or publisher, the knowledge learned and taught make you shine and be held up in the coolness of this worlds eyes. Knowing your worth and maintaining your status, never to be degraded and put down that you can’t rise up.

Be the Inspiration to your generation and look back only to bring up the good you may have left behind. Stay focused and guard your heart. Make sure your words and deeds are beneficial to anyone seeking understanding to learn this thing called life.

Life is not just living, its a process and takes courage and strength and the will to survive. I put all that on the Almighty who gave life to me.

I reverence the womb that bore me and I submit to the Lord who made me.

Ladies of the 80’s keep on blazing. The ladies of 90’s and the new Millennium your work is not done.

The chapters in the book, since I last took a look, we should all be on the same page when you hit the stage.

Think of your hereafter that’s the next chapter. All that you say and do will come back on you.

Set the pace and run the race. When you begin, don’t have doubt within. Keep a Gratitude Attitude and respect yourself and others and the love will come my sisters and mothers.

Again, it is an honor to share this with you, it’s so important and so true, Allah blessed me to be who I am the “GLAM” and represent all the good I do.

Peace!!!

My Youth!

Mic🎤✔Check!

My Youth!!!

Always got something to say.

Allways complaining,

Seeking something every which way,

Not complying with rules and regulations the adults put on display.

Why this?

Why that?

Why not?

Why Why Why?

Yo Stop!!!

Adults need you to comply!

If you have a problem with small rules and policies,

You’re going to have problems with the real Authorities!

Save yourself some grief,

Follow your righteous belief.

If the book says obey,

Then obey what the parents say.

Don’t question them.

If you question an officer,

He’s not your friend.

When he says put your hands up where I can see them,

Don’t ask WHY?

Do it!

Or your chances to live are slim.

When you were born you knew nothing,

Your parents, caretakers had to teach you something.

How to talk, how to walk, and feed yourself too,

Sending you to school to educate you.

Manners are picked up from family and friends you’re exposed to.

The parents are your first teachers,

So what say you?

When you act out and show bad conduct in public places,

Embarrassed your parents are, I’m imagining their faces.

Some parents scared to get the strap,

Some parents don’t take their children’s crap.

Most parents wish they have the best child,

Praying they make them proud and not be out there wild.

People can tell when you act a certain way if you’re a good child or not,

You display bad behavior, and your speech is shot.

Talking sassy and arrogant,

No respect in your speech,

Reflect on yourself and listen to what they teach.

Obey your parents and those charged with Authority among you,

I promise you’ll become a better human being and Allah will bless you!

Peace!

LIES!

Mic🎤✔Check!

This is not inclusive but has to be said.

If you are a Muslim this is for you.

Muslim: One who submits to the will of the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth. A servant of God ( Allah).

So listen up beloved.

A Muslim can be a coward.

Absolutely, a Muslim can not be a liar.

Always remember that.

Guard your tongue and private parts.

Be careful what you say to people.

When people are caught in lies, it affects their reputation.

Individuals will not trust that person who lied. Their credibility is shot.

Allah and His Beloved Prophet Peace and Blessings be upon him; says speak the truth even if it be against yourself.

Not many want or think to do that when in a situation.

They’re so concerned about getting out of trouble, or saying things the other person WANTS to hear.

Withholding the truth is not being truthful.

They are not concerned about if you tell the truth it frees up everything. Withholding information can mess up things.

If you release the truth when asked to it helps situations.

Volunteering information is not necessary at times.

Because covering faults is a practice.

You need to learn the wisdom in that practice without becoming a problem or labeled as a snitch.

You see holding something in that you should tell can make you sick or uneasy.

Have you ever told something and you felt like weight was lifted off of you.

That’s what truth does to you.

Free you up.

When you lie, it puts heavy pressure on your heart and mind. One lie after another.

It puts a black spot on your heart.

Then every time you lie it gets bigger. Until your whole heart is covered and you are far off the path and out of the fold of Islam.

Having a hard heart.

Not a good place to be.

Tell the truth.

FREE YOURSELF!

Your life will be much better telling the truth.

Not being poetic but being real. Your soul needs it.

Have a blessed rest of your day!

College Graduation

My perception of getting to College Graduation is an achievement of a lifetime.

I’m happy for the achievement and the Blessing is mine.

It’s like the step into a new world of challenges.

A raising of an Anchor on a journey with balances.

An obstacle just jumped over and relieved that one made it.

It’s a wonderful Achievement, Own it, just paid it.

The price to have A seat at the table with others who worked so hard to accomplish the same goal.

The pass to greatness and an opportunity to make a difference, a boost to the soul.

One can now face the world and inspire others to learn, and create.

You can embark on things and become Great!

Great ideas to seek and unfold.

Making history that’s yet to be told.

College graduation is like one of the best events in ones life that is a memory and history and part of ones foundation of their legacy.

You can start a Dynasty and be the greatest anyone could ever be.

Representing the scholars who blessed you with the knowledge they obtained.

You will have a seat like an King or Queen and a position sustained.

Its empowering as well as rewarding when you finally increase your knowledge and raise yourself to another level in life.

You were persistent, you were courageous, you have been faithful, you are smart and sharp as a knife.

You are on fire for hire, and that heavy heart is now weightless,

You can now blaze through your next goal and feel that feeling of….

GREATNESS!
