Peace and blessings, everyone! I’m very excited about this year and all the endeavors and travels I will be making. I feel so alive and I want the world to bask in my happiness. Don’t get it twisted, we all have some ish going on that we could do without, but don’t let it distract you from your goal and don’t let it keep you down. Channel your anger and all negative energy to create constructive and positive movements.
I learned to forgive people for their wrongdoing to me, whether they believe they did wrong or not and whether they apologize for the wrong they’ve done. I have to be bigger than that. I have to be at peace with myself and being angry at someone who makes no difference in my work ethic, my money, my bills or my love life should not get any of my power. We grow everyday but it’s up to us to grow UP and grow STRONG. I choose both!
I see that my efforts and the positive energy I put forth is coming to fruition and I gladly and openly embrace all my blessings to come. I will not hinder anyone else’s blessings from getting to them. I wish the best for everyone and for all of our hard work to pay off.
1. THE GREAT LAW
“As you sow, so shall you reap”. This is also known as the “Law of Cause and Effect”. Whatever we put out in the Universe is what comes back to us. If what we want is Happiness, Peace, Love, Friendship… Then we should BE Happy, Peaceful, Loving and a True Friend.
2. THE LAW OF CREATION
Life doesn’t just HAPPEN, it requires our participation. We are one with the Universe, both inside and out. Whatever surrounds us gives us clues to our inner state. BE yourself, and surround yourself with what you want to have present in your Life.
3. THE LAW OF HUMILITY
What you refuse to accept, will continue for you. If what we see is an enemy, or someone with a character trait that we find to be negative, then we ourselves are not focused on a higher level of existence.
4. THE LAW OF GROWTH
“Wherever you go, there you are”. For us to GROW in Spirit, it is we who must change – and not the people, places or things around us. The only given we have in our lives is OURSELVES and that is the only factor we have control over. When we change who and what we are within our heart our life follows suit and changes too.
5. LAW OF RESPONSIBILITY
Whenever there is something wrong in my life, there is something wrong in me. We mirror what surrounds us – and what surrounds us mirrors us; this is a Universal Truth. We must take responsibility of what is in our life.
6. THE LAW OF CONNECTION
Even if something we do seems inconsequential, it is very important that it gets done as everything in the Universe is connected. Each step leads to the next step, and so forth and so on. Someone must do the initial work to get a job done. Neither the first step nor the last are of greater significance, As they were both needed to accomplish the task. Past-Present-Future they are all connected…
7. THE LAW OF FOCUS
You can not think of two things at the same time. When our focus is on Spiritual Values, it is impossible for us to have lower thoughts such as greed or anger.
8. THE LAW OF GIVING AND HOSPITALITY
If you believe something to be true,then sometime in your life you will be called upon to demonstrate that particular truth. Here is where we put what we CLAIM that we have learned, into actual PRACTICE.
9. THE LAW OF HERE AND NOW
Looking backward to examine what was, prevents us from being totally in the HERE AND NOW. Old thoughts, old patterns of behavior, old dreams… Prevent us from having new ones.
10. THE LAW OF CHANGE
History repeats itself until we learn the lessons that we need to change our path.
11. THE LAW OF PATIENCE AND REWARD
All Rewards require initial toil. Rewards of lasting value require patient and persistent toil. True joy follows doing what we’re suppose to be doing, and waiting for the reward to come in on its own time.
12. THE LAW OF SIGNIFICANCE AND INSPIRATION
You get back from something whatever YOU have put into it. The true value of something is a direct result of the energy and intent that is put into it. Every personal contribution is also a contribution to the Whole. Lack luster contributions have no impact on the Whole, nor do they work to diminish it. Loving contributions bring life to, and inspire, the Whole. Source: social-consciousness
I’m very excited about Balance ~ Wearable Art because it was made out of necessity and it’s been getting a lot of love. I will be creating new body buttahz and body scrubs this week. I’m still taking suggestions and I’m still sending out samples of the suggestions I like. So far, I’ve created Citrus Ginger Scrub, Chamomile Lavender Shea Buttah, Coconut Coffee Body Scrub, Peppermint Body Scrub, Egyptian Musk Cocoa Buttah and a creamy Ginger Tumeric Shea Aloe Buttah to allieve skin irritation. This week, I’ll be creating a Chamomile Aloe Vera Oatmeal Black Soap, Lemon Chamomile Massage Oil and Green Tea and Honey Body Scrub made with Genmai-cha GreenTea with Roasted Rice, straight from Japan. I love cooking up these goodies in my kitchen!
Thank you, Thedeepr Bocrew, for the new logo!
And a big hug, a crazy shout out and many thanks to two of my most supportive contest participants and purchasers of Balance ~ Wearable Art: Florida’s own, Clips Clothing Rep and Beatminerz Radio Family, SneakerChic and Beatminerz Radio hostess of The Side Bar, hailing from the Boogie Down Bronx, TheCarmenB!

I’m back on my musical game and I have a few things coming, so do me a favor and just listen out for it and support. Any comments on anything are welcome. You can only grow as an artist if you can accept constructive criticism from the people who support you.
FREE DOWNLOAD OF DJ EVIL DEE’S “BROADCASTING LIVE” MIXTAPE ALBUM
“Can’t Say Goodbye”
I realized that I have a great following and I’d love to promote as much as I can, but my time is precious to me and I’m extremely focused, right now. Since I began this blog two years ago, I’ve searched, found, copied, scanned and downloaded information, flyers, services, products and events, for everyone to read and be aware of…
And I’ve always let it be known that I know where I come from.
By the way, I had a great time at CrazyLegs and Danny Castro’s birthday celebration at The DL on January 8th. I came in while Grandmaster Caz was spinning. DJ Evil Dee got on next and actually closed the party. I saw so many people I hadn’t seen in so long and I was glad I came, because I was going to stay home.
Shout outs to: Michele (from back in the day Milk and Honey Productions); my Sutra sisters, Sonja Blaze and Criss, lol; Big Tara and D-Stroy, (who had me in stitches with his funny ass); Kimmy and Mr. Bito, BMZ Fam on deck; Daniel from Mount Vernon, who I haven’t seen in years; Big Jeff and Vice Verses; VooDoo Ray and LiLi, who I met that night and she was getting her B-Girl on in heels… It was a good night, just too phukken cold! I enjoyed the dancers but one of them needed to wash his ass because he was stinking up The DL. SMH Happy healthy birthday to you, Crazy Legs and Danny!
As a result of sitting in the corner all night, freezing at The DL and NOT dancing to the sounds of DJ Evil Dee, like I have for the last 20 years, I caught a cold and suffered a wicked sore throat. I just got over it, January 12th. I’m glad that I took the weekend off to tend to my cold and sore throat. I drank hot tea the entire time made with:
Pineapple (anti-inflammatory, vitamin C, immunity booster), Tumeric root (antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, immune booster), Ginger root (anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, warming for colds/flu), Limes (relief from congestion and vitamin C) and
Honey (immune system builder and anti-bacterial)
I felt better yesterday, so I got up and made my curried brown rice and beans with coconut, a pot of collard greens and a pan of lasagne with kale and okra. I never did this before but it tastes delicious!
COLLARD GREENS IN BUTTER WITH ONIONS AND GARLIC
KALE, GREEN/RED BELL PEPPERS, ONIONS, OKRA, GARLIC IN OLIVE OIL
THE VEGETABLE MIXTURE ON THE FIRST LAYER
ALMOST DONE LASAGNE…
I will continue my culinary grind by creating my renditions of delicious dishes, more frequently. I will be making my famous seafood gumbo the first weekend in February, around my bearthday, and I suggest, if you want some, you email me, so we can negotiate a time for you to pick some up. Bring a microwaveable container and save room for rice. You will have to supply your own rice, though.
I will be attending classes more frequently. My dancing sisters, Leesah, Tara, Kim and my mentor, Reverend Nafisa Sharriff will be seeing me more this year. It’s all about strengthening and toning my physical, while I read more books, write more rhymes, meditate and complete my other various missions, one by one.
Tomorrow I will be attending the 20th Anniversary of Da Shinin’!
