Little Simz – “Grey Area” (Album Review)

Grey Area” is the third album from the English rapper Little Simz. It was released on 1st March of 2019, through the record label Age 101. Since its release the album has received very good reviews and high ratings from the listeners.

Simbi Ajikawo, better knew as Little Simz, is one of the most underrated and talented pioneers of UK rap, with a unique flow and capacity to shake the male-dominated hip-hop scene. The 25-year-old female musician new album is very confident and has an ‘in your face’ vibe that most of the artists don’t have, in a sense, it is a strong proclamation of who Little Simz is as an artist. Even if she can be a dark horse of the industry at times, she does a great work at making you understand who she is and that her work is worthy being noticed.

The album takes a different take on the genre in terms of beats, using much more instrumental, and sometimes even more jazzy bits as well with some old school voice distortions. Certainly not the typical trippy trap beasts that are flustering the hip-hop scene in recent times. Present in this album is a variety of features staring guest singers and not rappers, thus giving a different undertone to the tracks not heard of in recent times.

Some of the tracks on this album just feel like the artist is the badass women not afraid to show who she is and that she will speak her mouth out, she shows just that right from the start of this album with the track, “OFFENCE” followed with the crispy drums and ambient noise and with bars that are tougher than a bulldozer as quoted “I’m Jay-Z on a bad day, Shakespeare on my worst days”  or “Gas level ain’t even on 10 and still they can’t manage”. So many tracks on this album make it feel like Little Simz just enters the scene like she was in a tank, being upfront and honest showing that she is like that and will not apologize for what she is saying and doing.

Gray Area isn’t all in your face vibe and badass all the time it mellows down further into the album but keeps the flow on spot and the quality of the final product doesn’t go down. Little Simz Talks about her life memories and experiences and hardships, she even raps about the betrayal she suffered, through this album you get the feeling of being in the middle of the ups and downs of her life story. You get to hear how she dealt with everything and still pulled through, you can feel a sense of relatability in certain aspects of the tracks, being passed through the amazing bars she keeps dropping.

On the final track, “Flowers” Little Simz wonders if the ambition she has for herself, of wanting to be an icon and a legend, comes with a price. Here, she reflects on her idols, such as Amy Winehouse and Jimi Hendrix, and ruminates on their brilliant highs, but saddening ends.

Giving us an indication of the mindset, she was in while writing Grey Area, making it seem like the English rapper was going through a dark time, which became pivotal in her creative process to create this album. You can testify by hearing in the flow of the energy that emanates through the album and flows up and down.

Across these 10 tracks, Little Simz utilizes one of the most valuable commodities that people seem to forget and that is honesty and speaking her mind and heart out. The hype and the high praise this album is getting surely is deserved, backed up by a great artist with great talent, thus creating to this moment one of the best rap records of the year so far.

Ja Rule Calls 50 Cent a ‘Parasite’ and ‘Cancer to the Culture’

The saga continues in Ja Rule and 50 Cent’s ongoing feud.

Taking to Instagram on Friday (April 19), Ja Rule put his longtime rival on blast. The former Murder Inc. rapper went off on the G-Unit rapper, calling him a “parasite” and a “cancer to the culture.” His words were accompanied by a video of controversial Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan talking about a “unity party with punks.”

A post shared by JaRule (@ruleyorkcity) on

“THIS is why me and 50 will NEVER co exist he’s a parasite a cancer to the culture and our ppl,” said Ja, who called out 50 for taking shots at his own people. “He comes out with music takes shots at me Kanye etc. comes out with liquor takes shots at Diddy comes out with his show takes shots at Taraji always downing his own ppl… always running his fucking yuk mouth until the smoke gets thick then you wanna make anonymous calls to the Feds and NYPD talking about you scared for your life.”

He claimed that Farrakhan tried to organize a unity meeting between him and 50, but 50 turned it down. “lmao smh then when the minister called for both of us to sit with him for hip hop unity you gave this man your ass to kiss complete definition of a SUCKER…”

But he said that this will be the last time he engages his rival. “I’m saying all this to say I will not be engaging in any more back and forth with this goofy ass ni**er Curtis Ratson!!!” said Ja, adding, “#BootlickingkneekissingCOON #cloutchasingclown you can have all the money in the world can’t buy class.”

Ja’s post comes after 50 mocked him for reportedly owing $2 million in back taxes to the Internal Revenue Service. “LOL come on I know he not that bright but damn,” 50 captioned a screenshot of the headline.

The rappers have been beefing for nearly 20 years and according to 50, the rivalry won’t end until one of them is dead. “It’s never over. We may take a break, but [it] ain’t over till one of us gone,” he wrote in an Instagram comment.

Cannabis Politics in NJ: Are You A Flintstone or Jetson?

POWERED BY SELECT CBD

WORDS BY LEO BRIDGEWATER

Most Cannabis activist will agree with the sentiment that the legalization effort has been one big real life civics lesson mixed with drama, comedy, and adventure. The frustration is real and the sacrifices made by ourselves and our families have been costly.

The decision to pull New Jersey’s Adult Use Cannabis bill S2703 from the senate floor for a vote was a smart move by NJ Senate President Steve Sweeney. The Senate didn’t have the votes needed to pass the bill and he essentially brought NJ more time to get the necessary support. The problem in NJ is we have two types of people: Flintstones and Jetsons.

Our entire legislature is made up of mostly Flintstones and we’re asking them to make rules to a Jetsons game. These identifiers transcend race, age, gender, and religion. There are some really young Flintstones in NJ, and they are not all white. They are easy to identify because they tell on themselves by the words they use. If you still use the term “Gateway drug” when describing Cannabis, you’re a Flintstone. When describing Cannabis if you use the term “Dope”, you are a Flintstone. Regular Cannabis consumers haven’t used those terms in years. The gateway theory was scientifically debunked years ago. In fact, states that have comprehensive Medical Cannabis Programs are seeing an average of 25% reduction of Opioid addiction incidents and a drop in the number of prescriptions being written.

Which is bad news for three types of money in New Jersey:

Old money, the Pharmaceutical Industry has been operating in New Jersey for generations.

Long money, the alcohol industry has been operating in New Jersey for generations also.

Big money, the Prison Industrial complex has been thriving in New Jersey evidence by ACLU’s annual arrest report for 2018.

This is happening because our ability to educate the masses has been severely hampered by a bunch of Flintstones. Education is how we can bring order to chaos in an industry that’s still in its infancy. It is also through education is how we can turn Flintstones in Jetsons and welcome them into the new world.

Beyoncé Lands $60 Million Netflix Deal

Beyoncé is securing a major bag.

The superstar singer has reportedly inked a three-project deal with Netflix for a whopping $60 million, sources tell Variety.

The first of the three specials is her Coachella documentary Homecoming, which was released to the streaming service on Wednesday (April 17). Beyoncé, who is credited as executive producer, writer, and director, was reportedly paid around $20 million for the nearly two-and-a-half-hour film.

Beyoncé’s rep and Netflix did not respond to the report, but a source at the streaming company disputed the financial terms of the deal.

According to Vulture, HBO also expressed interest in Homecoming, but backed out after Netflix offered up more money. The cable network previously aired Bey’s 2016 LEMONADE film as well as 2014’s On the Run Tour concert special with JAY-Z and 2013’s Life Is But a Dream documentary.

In addition to Homecoming, Bey dropped a surprise 40-track companion album, Homecoming: The Live Album, that includes two bonus cuts, “I Been On” and a cover of Frankie Beverly & Maze’s “Before I Let Go.” The project is expected to debut in the top 10 on the Billboard 200 after only two days of sales.

Fans can expect even more music from Queen Bey. Variety reports that the audio from her visual album LEMONADE will be available on all music streaming services beginning Tuesday, April 23. Her future Netflix projects are also expected to include a music companion.

Senator Introduces Medical Marijuana Bill to Help Child Navigate Epilepsy

Powered by SELECT CBD

The stigma of Blackness and cannabis is a plague that stops many from receiving the treatment that they needs and deserve. Take Osiris Stephens and his wife, Nina Simmons for instance. The two of them understand this plight, probably more than anyone.

This couple living in NYC (both professional with graduate degrees),  Nina works as a physical therapist in the public schools and Osiris as a business developer in the Cannabis Trade Show are probably the picture of an upwardly mobile African-American family.  They live in the Harlem’s prestigious Upper West Side with their six-year-old son, Aiden Tanshin Stephens.  Aiden has special needs, and due to his epilepsy has un-treatable seizures. At a certain point, the blessing that is their son… turned into a nightmare.

With millions of people affected by this epilepsy, there still are very few options to control the seizures. But one of the options, The Stephens have tried is turning to cannabis oil for relief.

This family also took the leap of faith despite the stigma that comes with being Black and using cannabis.  When you read about cannabis, most of the stories that involved are Brown and Black people point to criminality.  That is sweeping racist myth. Cannabis is used for many reason in the Black and Brown communities as of late. And the reality, according to Stephens who is a professional are medicinal uses.

“We chose cannabis over big pharmacy medication with all of the nasty side effects.”

This family decided soon after their son’s diagnosis, that pharma alone is not going to control the 100-200 seizures a day.

“We can’t keep poisoning our son and expect a different outcome!”

With their son’s seizures under control, a NY State bill in his name was written to support children like him who need cannabis to survive.  This medical marijuana legislation titled Tanshin’s Bill was introduced by NY State Senator Brian Benjamin and it asks that kids with marijuana cards be able to receive their medicines while in school by assigned caregivers.

“After beginning a therapy of full spectrum cannabidiol (CBD) tincture three times a day, Nina and Osiris’s beautiful son Aiden’s seizures have dropped dramatically to 5-10 per month from 100-200 per day. However, widespread confusion about the use of medical marijuana in New York State, schools and mental health care facilities have made it hard for children like Aiden to receive this critical treatment while pursuing their educational studies,” said Senator Benjamin. “The bill we are introducing clarifies that medical marijuana therapy is legal at schools, and requires that schools have policies in place for the administration of these life changing therapies

“The states senators support the bill but are concerned that federal funding for schools will be pulled away.” Says Osiris.

A child’s education and health is in the federal government hands.
