We recently celebrated the 1st Muslim Women’s Day so it is fitting I’m discussing my homegirl Love (yes, her name is Love).
She blessed me with the opportunity to be her plus one at David Banner’s God Box Lecture. She was one of many opening acts.
I have so enjoyed watching David Banner evolve. I will always twerk to “Play” and “Like a Pimp” but I too grew into my consciousness. He said something interesting though. “I didn’t just become conscious. I’ve been conscious. But that doesn’t matter when you’re hungry.”
I so identify with him because I’m Hotep but I got a little thug in me too. When’s the last time you were lectured by a black man with corn rows and a gold tooth? #Shoutouts to The Turn Up Show for bringing him to the city.
I’m not going to discuss too many details because he is intentional on not having the God Box information online and made everybody turn their cameras off.. Why? because it’s “none of their business” I so enjoyed David Banner though. He held no words and showed lots of love to the people. He’s a big ole country man too. Yall know I like em… nvm
Love performed “Shine”. It iss a coming of age song that tells her story and basically
encourages the listener to “Shine your light” regardless because she says “It’s easier to build strong children, than it is to repair broken men” -Frederick Douglass
At the performance, she added some drums to the track and a young emcee, Metez The Realest joined her. He has bars better than rappers old enough to be his daddy. Look out for this guy.
I am so thankful that I don’t have to leave town or my circle of friends for good music. Check out more of Love’s music here. Thank you for the opportunity to see you kill the stage! Let’s do it again!
