Aaliyah…

aaliyah_hauptbildAugust 25, marks eight years to the day we lost one of the greatest people ever… I never met Aaliyah, but her music and presents was something that I felt deeply when she was alive.

I got hooked on ‘Baby Girl’s’ music when she did the “Back In One Piece” song. It was one of those songs that defined a moment for me and the chemistry between her and DMX was like fire… Thinking back I can’t even place the moment that made this song special, but I do remember the feeling and I had that feeling recently when I wrote about Aaliyah on her birthday (Song Of The Day: Aaliyah & DMX “Come Back In One Piece” Blog). I guess the feeling you get is more important than the person you shared it with sometimes, but then again sometimes the person is what invokes that feeling like when I wrote about Aaliyah the first time.

Whatever the case may be, Aaliyah is and always will be someone I cherish as an artist and fellow creative mind. From “4 page Letter” to “Miss You” she’s made my life just a little bit better… I’ll never forget her and even though her life was cut short; she more than made it worthwhile before her tragic death.

Get familiar and pay homage to AALIYAH…

h_diddy_blogger_logoSo today I realized, with a little help from Anisha,  that it’s kinda creepy that I write so much about this “Muse” of mine K… (it’s great to have a little sister who’s pretty much on call 24/7 now… Sorry Anoop) SO yeah… It is arguably creepy, but it kinda isn’t  if you understood why I write… See it’s easier for me to express myself like this rather than to be angry or bottle up my emotions inside. What separates humans from other animals is our advanced sense of emotions. We feel more… So when it hurts the pain is worse, but there comes a point where drawing inspiration from pain becomes  more of a pain because of the constant reminder of that pain… So even though Anisha didn’t blatantly call me fucked up in the head, I got the idea and I figured I’d got back to just having fun in my writing again…. And I might spill about K or whoever, when ever I want… Shit I wrote a blog about Teresa walking 200 blocks and cursing at a peach (Walk With Me As I Eat A Peach Through The Hood… Blog), so the world and my people are my inspiration for this art.

Which leads me to this… Christina Evangeline 🙂

One of the baddest women I know, but as real as any of my niggas. She’s silly, sexy, cool and like myself doesn’t really give a fuck what people think as long as she’s happy 🙂 Reminds me of an Italian version of Aby…

Well I was on the twit today and saw this picture she posted…

"I think I lost my contact in there..." -Christina

"I think I lost my contact in there..." -Christina

See that… She doesn’t give a fuck and she told me an old lady snapped that shot of her (how raw is that?). Anyways, for someone I casually know, she’s like one of those cool people I’ll never really forget because……. Well she ain’t scared to put her finger in a wooden butt! 😉

Seriously though, she’s cool as cool can get and there’s nothing out there that can replace that. It’s hard to find people who really can enjoy life for what it is and be free at the same time. People worry too much about the future; when you’re future is determined on your present and if you settle for the “safe” future and get hit by a bus tomorrow, guess what… You missed out on a lot.

This is why I do what I do and Christina does what she does and why Nick does what he does and why M.Rell does what he does and why Alex does what he does… The list goes on….

When you persue your dreams and enjoy doing it; it’s the greatest feeling in the world…

So Christina you get mad propers for being a COOL person (don’t get it twisted, you’re fly too.. The whole package is straight). Keep it real, but most of all keep it real with yourself and next time I’m back in NYC we’ll spend more than 15mins together walking the wrong way down the street… hahaha!

Let’s get it in and live it up!

I’ve begun to write blogs about some of the baddest chicks around from Rachael Roy to more recently Claudette Ortiz, but I never went in on someone I know. So I wanted to go in about someone who isn’t exactly that close to me, someone who hasn’t been around as long as Ace or Lois Lame or has inspired me like my Muse, but someone who has graciously taken me on because… I frankly have no clue, but she’s one of the most “intricate(d)” people I know . Her name is Aby and she puts the “A” in Awesome! 🙂

moniSo I wrote part of this back in December and another part in March and I kinda put it on hold cause I didn’t know exactly where I was going with it till I sat with Aby for like 5 hours talking about everything from our backgrounds, career goals, love, relationships and I suppose just life in general. After that convo, I was on a fast track to finishing this blog up and posting it, so here it is!

I met Aby through a friend of a friend of a friend and we started talking cause she was just such a magnet and usually I’m the magnet and 2 magnets don’t usually fuck with each other, but I sooo fucked with her. Why???

Shr taught me the “Power of Positive Thinking.” I knew of the concept, but i didn’t know how to apply it into my existence. I thank you for putting some time and effort in to get me on a path of “positivity” that eventually trickled down to other aspects of my life. You showed me that the brighter side of things was always and should always be the way to look at things.

So now I carry that with me through everything I do and to an extent it has worked and it will always be a motivating force in the way I live my life as the days go on.

So Aby, I can sincerely say that you’re one of the most intelligent, beautiful and overtly open-minded women I’ve ever met. You carry yourself like life has no obstacles and there’s no limitation to what you can succeed. I FUCKING LOVE THAT ABOUT YOU!

It’s something my team calls “MONUMENTIOUS.” It’s FIRE! It’s PASSION! It’s DRIVE!

Getting to knowing more about you has given me an understanding about a whole other world and way of thinking. It took me sometime to really get it because it was never put to me like it actually was and I’m so happy you made it clear to me. Everyone else I tried to get some insight from on it made it seem like I was to never understand it… But guess what???

If it’s clearly stated to me from the jump, I’ll always understand….

So fast forward to May 16, 2009…

I actually got to spend some one on one time with you that I could have used to 1. Kick some game or 2. Actually get to know you a little better. In intuition lead me to #2 because I always love looking deeper into people and from 1am to 6am I got familiar with you and I think you helped me come to another epiphany in my life that I’m going to make clear to some people when I get back from Philly.

Just like you put me on to the power of positive thinking, you put me on again and made me understand things that have been bothering me for so long and it’s about time I did the more grown thing and just accept these things for what they are; rather than try to change shit that I have no power to change.

You kinda put me on to the notion that no matter how similar people can be; everyone is different in that everyone has their own path that they decide to go down in life. You’ve done your thing and I’ve done mine. But not too many people do it like we do it either! And that’s what makes us all unique and different…

Oh and Aby, you didn’t back down or just say, “F it H… You’re hopeless.” You took it to where it needed to go till I saw it for what it was… It took like 5 hours, but you made it pretty clear to me. and I actually listened… That was so bawwwss of you DAWG!

And for lack of a better word you’re “special” and God made a special “thing” with you. I’d say “person,” but that would sort of be an insult to the fact that you’re not like other people at all. You’re more than the average person and you made that impression more evident the more we talked.

You’re definitely an Aby or more properly Abornita and thanks for embracing a seemingly hopeless dreamer like myself and taking on the challenge of being my friend. It takes a lot out of people to handle H, but like the chosen few that I hold near and dear to me (my Muse included even though she hates me right now), you’re right in pocket with what makes a nigga like me tick and that means the world to me and gives me the motivation to face another day and know that there’s always going to be room for improvement even though things seem so sweet already. 🙂

Aby… You The Fuckin’ Best. XOXO

P.S. ===> “intricate(d)” is not a real word…. 😦
