Oh Mack. .~*

A good friend of mine called me last night. .
"Yo L!! You've got to hear lil dude from the Wire's album". .
Of course I was like "Who? What?" (mind you I am sick too. .Glory. .LoL!!)
"It's FIRE!! GO to iTunes and cop it stat!!"
The way I was feeling at that moment. .was "Child BYE!!"LoL!!














However I am a sucker for GREAT music. He text the name and album title. .Low and behold. .





















It was the debut LP from the oh so Handsome Tristan Wilds aka Mack Wilds!! I have been a fan of the young actor since his days on "The Wire". .90210. .and of course "Red Tails" (Yes Lawd!! That was an outstanding and HANDSOME cast) so I honestly didn't know what to expect from him pursuing music. I remembered seeing the "Own IT" video this summer. .but didn't think to much about it.

















Over the past few months there has been a buzz about Tristan taking a break from acting to pursue a career in music.  We hear this A LOT from actors, athletes , etc and sometimes they just don't deliver.  (Sad but true) With Mack Wilds. .that is not the case!!

I purchased the album and immediately began to listen. .and I was SHOCKED!! Now I am the type of person that I don't start with the first track on the album, I listen to the first title that jumps out at me. .and that was "Art of Fallin'". People giving their opinion on what "fallin"/"love" is put against an almost old school track (reminisce of a Slick Rick beat).  I then listened to "Keepin It Real", "A NY Love Story" (I love to rock my french manicure!! Signature mani for a SophistiKat), "Wild Things" feat Method Man, "U Can Cry to Me" feat Raekwon and Dougie Fresh (It doesn't get any more NY than that). . then. .Child. .Glory. .I listened to "Don't Turn Me Down" and BayBAE it was a wrap!! I melted straight out of my bed!!  (I also found the video to this track. .and I must say. .Mack is a MAN!!)

This brother has delivered!! So many people are truly blessed to multi talented and Mack is one of those people. I was a fan before but I am sold on the music now too!! Please don't sleep on this album and purchase it today. I promise you won't regret it!!

Purchase via iTunes:

Check out his brief documentary "New York: A Love Story" and get a glimpse at who Tristan "Mack" Wilds is. .(I seriously was wondering where "Mack" came from. .)



Enjoy~*

He became known as the "pioneer of ragtime" because he brought in ragtime music to the concert stage as an encore or when the audience became restless, saying "Let's put the cookies on the bottom shelf where everybody can reach them.".

Today we highlight and pay our Respects to the Life and Legacy of Harriet Tubman!! 


Harriet Tubman is perhaps the most well-known of all the Underground Railroad's "conductors." During a ten-year span she made 19 trips into the South and escorted over 300 slaves to freedom. And, as she once proudly pointed out to Frederick Douglass, in all of her journeys she  "never lost a single passenger."

Tubman was born a slave in Maryland's Dorchester County around 1820. At age five or six, she began to work as a house servant. Seven years later she was sent to work in the fields. While she was still in her early teens, she suffered an injury that would follow her for the rest of her life. Always ready to stand up for someone else, Tubman blocked a doorway to protect ano…
