nick drake forever


nick drake was incredible i think.......way before his time...its a shame that he could not appreciate his own talent...most people that had the pleasure of being around him,always experienced a certain sadness within him,,pitty pitty i think...his songs are more popular now than ever....i was lucky  enough to catch a documentary about his life on the tele,and thought it was the right time to turn u on to mr nick drake...please take the time and discover his music as i did,,i will assure u ,u will not be disappointed,,,and u will thank me in the morning.......
 muahhhhhhhhhhh

Stand Up 2 Cancer w/ Us

In 1999 my father was diagnosed with Liver cancer. He was a very proud man. Didn't complain...just did what he had to do & fought like a champ...He went into remission....But in Jan. of 2002 he was struck ill w/ what we thought was a stomach ailment.  We were stunned to learned that he had stage 4 inoperable liver cancer.  He fought hard and lived longer than doctors determined.  My father Oxzel Slade transitioned on Nov. 18, 2002, 25 years & one day after my mother passed away of (ironically) different liver ailment.


I have been a advocate to fighting cancer since the loss of my grandmother in 1996 &my HS alumnus Jill Wilson- Halmett in 2005.  Now I have another HS friend who is fighting as well Willma Diaz-O'Kelley. 


When I approached Alexie F to get support, he did not hesitate.  He knew my history and wanted to do whatever he could. He also requested that I reach out to his fans.


I have a piece of art that I am auctioning off on Ebay entitled Dancing Lady II which symbolizes strength.


If you want to help my cause. Please bid on Dancing Lady II on Ebay. If you win the bid on this  piece,  30% of the proceeds goes to Stand Up 2 Cancer.

Thank you all for your Support. & Thank you Alexie for allowing me to use this forum to get my cause out there.

2508.... GOSH...GOLLY...GEE..WILLIKERS

What does that # mean? Well yesterday I was checking numbers on the different vids for Afro Boy... The Randy Mason interview had 2508 hits on the launch date Aug. 27th.......after I picked my jaw up off the floor I told Alexie...who did something that sounded like hyperventilating....lolol you know us artists...we get a little mellow dramatic








All of this made me think about how all this got started...including my current involvement. When I located AF back in Aug 29, 2007 I had no idea that he was involved in music. Knew him in the Marble Hill days when we were 12, he was quite the conversationalist even then. So when he asked me to check out The Zro Hour, I wasn't surprised when I heard his interview w/Sandy La Loba & Mexicano 777 down in South Beach.






When the decision was made for changes to be made w/Zro....my husband said on Father's Day 2009 that Alexie F should be doing his own thing that embraces his identity.






Ant & my experience in image building different types of artists go back into 1992. So when Alexie asked me to assist him w/building his image...I was flattered. It made it easy because he was supporter of artists I represented. He had already acquired some of the art work that Anthony & I had produced and respected the craft.......It was a natural merger.






So Afro Boy (find the reference to the name in an archived post) was born. Oct. 29, 2010 will officially be one year of its release. The plan is to celebrate with a big celebration. Afro Boy became a partner w/A.T.B. Fine Artists Designers LLC http://bit.ly/bIaiZ1  July 2010. We designed the updated Muah T-shirt.


Besides working in music & production for Afro Boy, Alexie F. made a decision to also rep art on behalf of A.T.B. in the NYC/NJ area.


A lot has been accomplished for Afro Boy...but you know a lot more is yet to come.


Never knew it would be quite like this...But it has been a great ride so far.

2 years & still hittin'.....

Warpaint is a 2008 album by blues-rock band The Black Crowes. Released on March 3, 2008

In 2008 Alexie had been talking about the release of the Black Crowes new CD. He talked me to death about it to the point that I was now looking forward to it. As soon as if dropped I was on Amazon ordering my CD assuming that he being, in the big city would just go down town & pick up a copy.  Well I didn't realize that  like here in Florida, record stores (yes I said record, so yes I am dating myself) we closing left & right.  So in July 2008 Alexie F got a copy of Warpaint via yours truly for his birthday.

Hot CD for those who are into Black Crowes or just Blues-Rock in general.

On Hiatus...............Where you At


Well although Afro Boy's Alexie F is on vacation, that doesn't mean he is not working. He has been busy working on several projects TBA....He is sorry that he has been offline. But he has not forgotten about you all. You know how he feels about his fans.

He just recently made a rare appearance @ the Highline Ballroom for the Black August Hip Hop concert a couple of weeks ago in support many underground hip hop artists including Hasan Salaam & Rugged n Raw of the 5th Column camp performing tracks from Mohammad Dangerfield. They also released their video BBQ Joint, that Alexie F. has a cameo in. This vid has already received over 2000+ hits on youtube since it's release a couple weeks ago.

puerto rican weekend.....

The Young Lords Party, also known as the Young Lords Organization, was a primarily stateside-based Puerto Rican organization dedicated to liberation, independence, and justice for Puerto Ricans both in the States and on the island and for all oppressed people. They were inspired by and worked parallel to organizations like the Black Panthers, the Brown Berets, and the American Indian Movement. Like those organizations, they were targeted by COINTELPRO and the other powers that be which, along with internal conflict and political shifts, lead to the organization’s disintegration in the mid-1970s. They continue to remain an important, revolutionary and inspirational movement for Puerto Ricans and other Latinos living in the United States.

louder than love

freestyle music was the hottest thing  in new york back in the early 80s,,it made its way into most Latin clubs at the time,,,bringing something different away from hip hop...by the mid 90s its started losing its steam on the radio,,and hip hop took its rightful place soon after..even though freestyle is not blowing up the airwaves like it did back in the day,,it is still considered a very respectable style of music that dwells in our hearts to this day..the popularity of (Latin hip hop)another well known name for it,,will live 4 ever,,,cuz the memories left behind never die...i was lucky enough to do shows with most of the freestylers that were so popular then,,and still are now....if ur in Miami ,,new york,,and even California,,I'm sure u can find a club that will take u back to a time that will last 4 ever ...
