On June 10, 2019 two great celebrations took place in New York City. A brooklyn street St. James Place & Fulton was given a new name Christopher Wallace Place recognizing the late great “The Notorius BIG aka Biggie Smalls” Right across the bridge in Manhattan at City Hall thirteen Artist were honored for Black Music Month. I was humbly blessed and excited to receive a call from Wonda Women Foundation to write and perfrom an original poem. The audience demonstrated their appreciation for the performnace given, raising the bar by opening up the 2019 Hip Hop Honorees Celebration which set a positive and uplifting tone resulting in a standing ovation..
Some of the honorees included Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, June Ambrose, April Walker, Hezekiah Walker, Slick Rick and Londell McMillian. (inside scoop) the list of artist changed twice after the poem was completed and being memorized this is where dedication, committment and preserverance kick in and flexibilty and adjusting is the nic name of the entertainment game and staying prepared and ready is key and of high priority. I am passionate about my work and give 150% with every performance. I respect and appreciate my audience from five to five thousand people watching me perform.
It was an uplifting bucket list experience and another reminder that our gifts and talents are giving to us to reach it’s fullest potential to share with others and should be used wisley. For they are not just for you but also for all those that your gifts and talents will reach and teach. If the Artist I honored did not take full advantage of there gifts and talents to the best of there abilty I honetsy would not be the Artist I am today.
I watched the Honorees in admiration as a child, researched them as a adult realizing the positive influence their music has had on me and some many. Rakim’s music intruduced me to the word conscouisness. Slick Rick taught me as child the world is mine, while Big Daddy Kane showed men smooth operating moves the real way to approch a queen. I encourage us all to do what makes you happy in life it’s a much better healtheir lifestyle to live. Don’t be afriad to believe and invest in yourself always remeber there are no smooth mountains.
