Emphasizing the loneliness that has came over time through the winter months forcing her to look toward her own solitude for some time to  introspect the entire situation. It is hard to dwell on the former memories and impact your significant other brought  to your life. Continually reminiscing and ruminating indefinitely freezes you in a season full of barren branches and/or life growth. For you cannot move on holding onto old what if’s, and maybe’s. With seasons changing Lorine reminds listeners to hold on to your proper Queenhood or Kingship by strategizing and internally allow the current change to grow you and not wither your status. Remember you hold your status in life and  dictate future. Make sure you stream the video below as Ms. Lorraine Chia brings us to a place of germination….Appreciate the Art| Admire the Craft

Rest In Power

Tupac’s mother, Afeni Shakur, has died at the age of 69. The northern California police department confirmed her death Tuesday morning. (May 3, 2016) Shakur, a political activist and member of the Black Nationalist group and Black Panther Party, has been an active presence in our nations fight for equality. In 1969 she was arrested for conspiracy in New York, she was accused of plotting to bomb buildings and landmarks, she was later acquitted in 1971 and gave birth to Tupac the month after. Afeni was also the subject in Tupac’s famous song “Dear Mama” which was released in 1995. The single accumulated much success by going platinum and touched the hearts of millions who could relate. She also is credited for being the moderator of Tupac’s estate since his death in 1996, as well as establishing the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation, which supports art programs for children. Afeni Shakur was a voice for the voiceless, a human activist for the less fortunate and her presence will be missed. We personally want to thank her for all of her efforts and endeavors while living and continue to carry on her message. Rest in Power Afeni Shakur!
