Flying Lotus ft. Kendrick Lamar “Never Catch Me” Video

OMG! I’m feeling both happy and sad after watching this. These Flying Lotus videos always take my breath away and leave a pit in the bottom of my stomach.

…And the song is trés trés dope.

"AN AFRICAN CITY", GROUNDBREAKING WEB SERIES DEBUTS
An African City tells the story of five beautiful, successful and determined African females who return to their home continent in search of the life and love they’ve always longed for.  You can watch the series on the show’s YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/anafricancity
Billed as the Sex and the City of Africa, the show delves into the lives of these women as they struggle to find new ways to deal with being modern and successful while not falling victim to the pressures put on them by their traditional African parents and society as a whole.
Created by Nicole Amarteifio and produced by Millie Monyo the show was shot in Accra, using a multi-talented Ghanaian production crew.  The show will give viewers a peek at the amazing landscape that exists in urban Accra – a city dubbed by The New York Times as the 4th best travel destination in the world – as well as showcase the gorgeous fashions by top African designers.

Carefree Black Girl Mixtape Vol. 1 
click the link below: 
https://www.mediafire.com/folder/5alj9icfu5ve0/Carefree_Black_Girl_Mixtape_Vol._1 
I wanted a mixtape that compiled many different carefree black girls from  past to present that showcased our diversity. From artists like Nicki Minaj to Anita Baker I find all these women to be significant and inspiring in some way. With 33 songs this mixtape, if played in order, has a storyline that is kind of obvious but I thought would be cool. Anyway I hope you enjoy this.

I like’em older, slightly nerdy, artsy, and cultured but down to earth… Jesse L. Martin will forever be my #MCM. Been crushin’ on him since Ally McBeal.
