Hello Loves! It’s Wednesday so I got some brand new tings to share with you. Ras-I released an ode to the beautiful black woman, titled “Nubian.” This song touches your soul from the instrumental intro,… More
Hi Everyone 🙂
This is what we’ve been waiting for, the official visuals for Protoje’s eminent single, “Blood Money.” The music video goes deeper into the dialogue of corruption in Jamaica. Take a look at the official music video below.
They love classic art
The framed paintings of ladies
We’re the J’ouvert.

Today I have a new song for you, “For My Soul” from Maticulus Auburn. In this short song he raps, sharing his heart for us to hear. He fights to live life the way he wants, for his soul. Warning all doubters to leave him in peace. Take a listen to For My Soul by Maticulus Auburn.

Get beneath my shell
Alas black girls don’t turn pink
Still, we blush clearly.

Hi Everyone 🙂
Today I have a lovely lady that caught my eye at the launch of Coming In Hot. Yeza took to the stage and sang her first single, “Everyting Is Irie.” Her confidence and sense of style already had her on my good list, then she opened her mouth and I was even more pleased. She rapped her verses on the riddim and engaged her audience, she’s definitely one to look out for; take a listen to “Everyting Is Irie” by Yeza.

Born as a woman

The Tosh legacy continues… I got to see the release Dre Tosh’s new music video at the home of the Peter Tosh Museum (the Pulse 8 Complex). Dre really came in hot by showing his great lyrical skill in his version of the Peter Tosh song, “Coming In Hot.” He raps the verses while sampling the chorus from his grandfather. Throughout the night he made great effort to pay homage to the legend. The icon’s grandson had a slew of entertainment for the evening before releasing the accompanying visuals.
The lovely Isis Miller was the tour guide for our experience that evening, and I enjoyed her humour. The first bit of entertainment was by a few friends of Dre Tosh, with each person singing a few of their songs. We heard the likes of King Kali, Devine I, Ras Kano, I-Mar Shepherd, Triple, and the only lady, Yeza. I’m not being biased but Yeza had me paying attention, I enjoyed her song “Everyting Is Irie.” We also got to see a short video about Dre Tosh and the continuation of the Tosh legacy; check it out below.
And finally the music video was played, followed by a performance of “Coming In Hot” to raise the heat some more. Definitely look out for him, I love his energy, and the connection he had with the audience. Check it out, “Coming In Hot” by Dre Tosh.

Hi Everyone 🙂
This week we have new reggae music… Again! Ziah from the In.Digg.Nation Collective released his first single “Streets.” What makes it even more special, is that he wrote and produced the song. Ziah stresses the importance of teaching children what is right, and how the role of parents is an important factor in this. He’s grateful for getting the proper understanding as a youth so that he wasn’t lead astray; take a listen to Streets by Ziah.
The ocean calls you
It beckons you to the shore
Accept the due cleanse.

Hey everyone, you’d never guess what happened… I won this box! This Coco was a surprise. I had entered a competition I saw on the Sugarplum Box Instagram page, it was a BLK/OPL (Black Opal) makeup giveaway. I’m subscribed to the Sugarplum Box website, so at the time the instructions could be found in the most recent newsletter. What I didn’t notice though, was that Marsha (Sugarplum CEO) decided to add a Springtime themed box into the giveaway. It was clearly stated in the email but I don’t know how I’d missed that detail.
Some time had passed and the giveaway winner was chosen on Instagram over a live stream by Sugarplum Box. It was done via a website that picks winners randomly, and I was the lucky participant 🙂 Then I gleefully waited until the prize was ready for pickup. I’m not gonna lie, I may be a slight makeup junkie but I try to keep my purchasing minimal. So I was very happy to receive two BLK/OPL cream to powder foundations, two matte foundation powders, and a lipstick. The shades of the products varied but I’ve put them all to good use so far.
In the Ultra Matte Foundation Powders I got the shades Medium Light and Deep. While in the Pore Perfecting Powder Foundations (cream to powder) I received the shades Amber and Heavenly Honey. The gorgeous pink lipstick is in the colour Haute; I kid you not this lipstick makes me feel like a Barbie doll. Take a look below to see what was in the Springtime Sugarplum Box.
