Buzzing: Is 5x Grammy Award Winning Singer LAURYN HILL a 1st x Time Granny?

‘Unsure what the balance held’ when she ‘touched her belly overwhelmed’ by what she ‘had been chosen to perform.’ When that angel came down one day, and told her to kneel down and pray, for unto her a man child would be born.

It was just before the blast and popularity of social media.

NICKI MINAJ: The Backlashing of the Big Barebottom Barbie

Purple Reign: PRINCE Signs With Warner Bros & Regains Creative Control

  Spring solstice is actually the “New Year” and is the universal/astronomical fact that the sun is in constellation Aries (beginning March 21 through April 20).

NIPSEY HUSSLE Sells ‘Mailbox Money’ for $1000 Beginning December 20

Nipsey Hussle’s doing it again. Last year, we wrote about Nipsey being in the lineup of rap trendsetters-trendsetters who went, or go at it and out on that limb on faith, courage and of course: talent—doing non-trite, nontraditional marketing and advertising for their projects [and promotion for those projects]. It’s the rule of the shrewd,…
