Author: 7th Sign

I’m an author who has written four poetry books, Blurred Vision, Hindsight 20/20, Honesty Box and most recently, Stingrays. I released my first novel, Fortune Cookie, in 2015 and I’m finalizing the follow up, called No Cream In The Middle, for a July 2017 release. I enjoy helping other writers reach their goals, which inspired me to launch my own publishing company, 7th Sign Publishing.

Introducing Ms. So Fine

I have always been a fan of music with a big brass sound. Don’t mess around and throw a deep, bass guitar line in there. There’s something about that type of music that really lifts your spirits and stirs up your soul. That’s exactly what I experienced when I first heard Raphael & The Ivory […]

Lil Kim: “The Break Is Over”

Although Lil Kim has remained to keep her legacy vibrant since her last full length studio album (The Naked Truth, 2005), she has remained quiet. Motherhood seems to have calmed her down. Nonetheless, she is still touring, making music and reminding Nicki Minaj where her style originated from. So, it’s not much of a surprise […]

What Happens When Love Alters Life?

Love is a feeling we all have experienced at some point in our lives. Whether it’s the love of a romantic interest, family member or friend, we have felt the ups and downs of love. However, society tends to highlight women as the weaker sex when it comes to matters of the heart. There are […]

Lalah Hathaway: Honestly Raw, Sensual & Real

I have always been a fan of Lalah Hathaway’s voice. However, she really captured my attention when she was featured on Snarky Puppy’s song, “Something”. She did some amazing vocal acrobatics that I still haven’t recovered from. Check out the video for yourself below. I also got a chance to see her live in concert […]

Everywhere You Should Be (In The ‘Moments’)

The London alternative rock band, Everywhere, has been on the move in just a few short years. The group recent released their critically acclaimed EP, Fiction Act. Now, they are back with a brand new single, “Moments”. The group was inspired after hearing Swedish singer Kev’s original version of the song. However, their version peppers […]

Watermelon Under The Cherry Moon

I get it. Fall is officially here and watermelon season is out the door. Give me pumpkin spice or nothing else! I know. However, today’s Thirsty Thursday is worth you putting down that pumpkin spiced latte for just a moment. I recently discovered the WTRMLN CHRRY drink at Target. I was looking for something I […]

112: The Return Of Q, Mike, Slim and Daron

Q, Mike, Slim and Daron, better known as 112, are back. Their infectious blend of Hip Hop inspired R&B has been bleeding from speakers for the past two decades. However, nearly half of that time is the break since their last album, Pleasure & Pain. The Atlanta based quartet has returned with their new album, […]

He’s Just That Amazing

I recently had some self inflicted body damage on my car. I was so angry at myself, although it wasn’t totally my fault. Nevertheless, I had to wait to get my car fixed. I didn’t have $1000 just laying around to fix the damages. I was really starting to stress about how I would get […]

Snoh Aalegra: Catching FEELS

Snoh Aalegra, the Swedish born songstress, has finally released her full length debut album, FEELS. She’s the mentee of producer No I.D. Although this is her debut album, you should do yourself a favor and check out her EP, Don’t Explain. She credits the 70s, 80s and early 90s as her strongest musically influenced eras. […]

P!nk: Trauma Never Felt So Good

  Pink has always had a knack for conveying heartbreak through song in a way that resonates with her audience. She can be quirky and witty (“So What” and “You Make Me Sick”) or seriously gritty (“The Great Escape” and “Just Like A Pill”). Although it’s hard to believe all of these sad love songs […]
