3 Reasons Why You NEED GOD MONEY WAR

First off, can I just say that this album gave me so much life! From the word play, to the collabs, to the genius behind each song that was artistically crafted into masterpieces from number 1-14, it left me wanting more! So here are my personal reasons for why you need this album in your playlist. 

1. Like Los said in his interview with The Breakfast Club, he is speaking to the streets. Most artists glorify the streets and make it seem like its great! Los on the other hand, is speaking positive, wanting people to think, realize and make GOOD moves. 

2. This work of art reminds us why we love music.

3. Some times we come across those people who can spit rhymes all day and yell "bars" but none of them have lived what they speak or know anything about it. Los is real, pure, honest and a lyrical genius. 

Favorite Songs:
1. Confidence feat Chrishan The Prince
2. Black Blood feat. Isaiah Rashad & Kent Jamz
3. War feat. Marsha Ambrosius
4. Ghetto Boy

Same Love

Earlier this morning the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to lift the ban on same sex marriage nationwide. As I sit and smile while I read articles, I then shake my head at the comments left under the post. This is always a topic of discussion at someones table everyday. I also get asked, personally, how I feel about the "issue" (side note, I hate when people call love an issue).

Here's how I feel about people who are homosexuals.

I don't care.

Seems harsh, but here's my reasoning for using those words. I don't care if you're gay, bisexual, transsexual, white, black, yellow, purple or red! All I care about is how your heart is. What you do in your personal life is none of my business. A friend told me that she hates on same sex love because as a straight person, she can't find that type of love or commitment. A handful of people that I know hate it because of religious reasons. If being with the same sex makes you happy, a better person, allows you to love on others and share greatness then okay, be you. That is not my lifestyle, it's not one I will frown upon on either. It's not one I will judge, because honey, I can't judge shit, especially from the things I've done in my past.

Here is what people read in the bible :

Leviticus 18:22: Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind, it is, an abomination.

Okay great.. I understand, here is what I read, which is the reason for me not judging but instead choosing to LOVE:

John 13:34-35- A new command I give you: Love one another. AS I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.

If you think same sex love is wrong then that's fine, but what's not fine is being nasty, mean, judegmental and a dick basically because of someone elses life. I'm sorry, I didn't know that Mary and Sara's love for one another is so hurtful to your personal life. Does their love stop you from going to work? Eating? Laughing? Loving? Thought so....

People also make me laugh when they get pissed about this, but have the audacity to preach equality for everyone. So here is what I see and hear

It's okay for a woman to buck up, be in a mans face, and even assault him, YET if a man were to do the same, its wrong...Because as a man you have to take it...

It's okay for a man to get a higher position over a woman because.. they're considered to be "better equipped" to handle business decisions.... YET most fortune 500 companies are ran by women... i.e. Yahoo inc...General Motors...Campbell Soup just to name a few.

Having love is what will bring people together, LOVE IS THE ANSWER! EXCEPT if it's love between the same sex, because that's "wrong" and "gross"

I'm a lover of people and of happiness. I'm not up for judging because I don't want to be judged. Who am I to tell you that how you love is wrong, when I haven't even come close to correcting my wrongs? Unfriend me, unlike my social pages if you must because I wont stand by some and scold others, I'll understand.

 So if you're gay, then congratulations on now being able to marry whenever and wherever you please.

Dear Gorgeous Man at The Bar

Dear Gorgeous Man at The Bar,

First off, I want to say thank you for "admiring my beauty from across the room" and slowly making your way towards me. Thank you for buying my drink while trying to keep me engaged in a conversation. You were a gentleman at first, but when I refused to accept a drink that you walked up with, or allow you to kiss me and grab my ass, things shifted quickly. I have no idea who or what you thought I was. I sure wasn't the half-naked woman across the club, I also wasn't the one downing shots in the corner and throwing up, and I sure as hell wasn't the one twerking on the wall. Nonetheless, it proves that the lack of respect that was circulating the club seemed to make you think that I, for some reason, the woman fully clothed, fresh faced with minimal makeup, manners, a great vocabulary, would allow a nasty but yet handsome guy like yourself to do things only a man deserving should enjoy. I'm sorry that you thought your looks and one lines were enough to get me to go home with you. It's also sad to see that that shit actually works on some women. I don't blame you for being a pig, with low self-esteem, one who has to try and swoon women with one liners and a weak closer, for having the audacity to try and close on me. It's flattering.... Well no it wasn't... it was stupid. Good try though handsome, maybe next time.. with someone else.


Mr. Handsome, I also don't accept drinks from strange men. Especially one that I watched work the room and slip something in the drink at the bar before it was brought over to me. Did you really think I dropped that drink on accident? I also notified security of your actions, which is why you were escorted out and arrested. It's a shame, some people don't people watch, don't watch their own drinks, and the amount of women that accept a drink from a stranger, without question, is amazing.  My dad taught me well sir, I will always walk with you to the bar, even if you're a man or woman that I know. I also am very aware of my surroundings. I just wish that the girl in the corner of the bar was that aware. The one who was taken out by ambulance and an EMT had to stick his finger down her throat to keep her breathing. I don't know if that was you handsome, but whoever it was, is just as cowardly as you were.

By the way....
Your track record of assaults, attempted rape, rape and so on was disturbing but not surprising. How our system failed to lock you away prior is a question that needs to be answered. Oh, by the way the sentence that you received was well overdue, you're too handsome to be in prison, but you deserve it.

<3 Eb

Boast of Green

Okay, I promise that green is NOT my favorite color :) however this green drink is surprisingly tasty! For those who don't know, I've been on a health kick for the past 10 months. After my move from Alaska to Texas, it was time for me to focus on myself. In doing so, all the weight that I carried and allowed myself to put on from BAD relationships was one thing I didn't want coming with me on my new journey. As a dedication to myself, I decided it's time to GET BACK into shape and be the best me I can :). See blog :  BEAUTY IS IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER for more about my personal weight story. 
More about my green mess of a delicious drink:
2 1/2 cups of spinach and kale 
1tbsp of chia seeds 
1 cup of frozen berries, I used mango, pineapple and strawberries 
a dab of peanut butter  and fiber powder
1/2 cup of almond milk 

I drink this as a snack after a workout (not everyday), of course you can change out your fruit, ditch the greens if you want, add more fruit, lose the peanut butter, but adding protein would be ideal. This gave me energy and helped clear me out, I encourage you to give it a try and make it your own :) then hit the contact box with your thoughts.
