Prblms

Today’s post comes from the enigma known as 6black as he releases his new single “problems”. This song speaks on the many levels of relationships with back and forth arguments between him and his lady.

Bare Soul Yoga

Yoga represents many things to many people but for me yoga means a connection between the mind and body, yoga represents peace, tranquility and concentration. It is a gateway exercise to release stress and stay grounded to the universe and yourself. With the recent health renaissance taking place we are seeing people take responsibility for their own health and using organic and ancient practices opposed to trusting the doctors and hospitals whole-heartedly. With this increase in healthy living we are still only seeing a small percentage of black woman participating in yoga, whether they feel out of place or intimidated by a different body structure its plain to see that more black yogi teachers are needed. With only two percent of Black women in the United States practicing yoga out of the 16 million women in the United States, only 30 thousand black women do yoga. Which is why we are here to break the mold with ‘Aziza Love’ a talented yoga instructor in training aiming to put some color in the yoga world. Aziza uses yoga to promote physical as well as mental wellness, understanding the many chronic diseases that plague the black community which can be reversed with daily yoga routines. Brining peace and serenity to a community that suffering from anxiety and confusion. Creating the platform for folks of color with different shape bodies to be included and not fell intimidated. Black women are not the face of yoga but that doesn’t mean that they are not meant for it. Inclusion is necessary, we all need to feel welcomed and supported and at Bare Soul Yoga you can do just that, a place to heighten the mind and body.

B.A.S.I.C

Eric Williams II better known by his stage name B.A.S.I.C. (an acronym for Be About Success In Controversy) is an up and coming American hip-hop artist with much promise. Born in Honolulu, Hawaii and raised in Virginia Beach, Virginia, the Aspire To Inspire Music Group representative came out of the shadows when he made it to the final round of Norfolk radio station’s 103 Jamz Fest in the summer of 2012. Since then he has been in the studio working hard and hitting the scene, especially after the release of his project in March 2013 titled “XXV (25)” collage of lyrics that express feelings, stories, and lessons learned from his journey as a 25 year old man in Virginia. Shortly after its release, B.A.S.I.C. won Hip Hop Artist Of The Year, as well as winning the Mixtape Of The Year Award sponsored by DS Magazine. While constantly connecting with people via social media on a personal level to organically build his fan base, B.A.S.I.C. has performed countless times all over within his hometown and has also gained notoriety by performing in North Carolina, New York and Connecticut.

Super Origami

This past week Da Bassment had the opportunity to sit in on a residency night in Cincinnati at The Comet. The vibrations were elevated and the music was electrical, Super Origami put on a show. Combining music art and  culture in one building, using their sound to break down social stereotypes and speak on injustices as well as everyday life. The room was packed and filled with people from all walks of life connecting through the music. There was a cohesiveness between everyone who attended last night’s show and the love was truly felt and genuine. The live instrumentation quickly got the crowd to their feet, within seconds more than half of the audience was front and center dancing laughing and having a good time. The nostalgic vibes of the venue (The Comet) accented perfectly with their sound, placing you in a different time zone similar to the 70’s with free spirits, righteous hippies and revolutionaries.
