Celebrated Black history month, appropriately by touching the mic for ArticulateNYC’s “HER”story open mic, which focused on celebrating women of color. I was more than honored to bring Tunisia on stage at The Nest with me, for the first song I’ve actually created with someone — and a woman at that! ArticulateNYC’s founder, Anya, is also a woman and that just made it all sweeter.
I met Iixel at PYNK Wednesdays and am so glad I got to see her perform. The most important thing about being on stage is your presence. Iixel popped out with all her girls who held it down for her all night. When he song came on, you better believe they knew every word. After checking on her soundcloud, it’s hard to deny that honey girl has a banger.
PYNK Wednesdays at the VYNL is practically headquarters for leading women creatives in the tri-state area. The new event, hosted by FindYourIDNYC, highlights women & is open to all art forms , providing opportunities to showcase talents from poetry, singing and rapping to clothing design, modeling and entrepreneurship. This networking event is “the element” any driven and artistic woman wants and needs to be part of.

Cardi B, born Belcalis Almanzar, has solidified the summer 2018 sound. The Bronx native’s first studio album was worth all her work and worth the wait. Her personal and network growth are evident on this project as she stepped up to bat with eat beat and knocked it out the park. I can’t say I was in love with anything on her previous mixtapes (or Love & Hip Hop), but can acknowledge how far she has come.
