INTERVIEW WITH LINI NEXT RATED RAPPER – AmericaMedian
It makes me mad when I go to Apple Music and see Soca music identified as "Modern Dancehall." No offence to Apple, but I'm offended.
Hey, so of course like everyone loves music. My father was a musician, but I was into sports so did not really pick it up. I wrote poetry in high school, but that was it. I wanted to learn the intro to la bamba and then I was done. I spent time in a church where the entire pastors family made music and were super impressive! After leaving the church and trying to find my own way. I headed out to Austin, Texas not really knowing that it is heavy in putting out musicians. I didnt really explore and while I was over there my father send me a guitar from Mexico. It wasn’t the best quality, but somehow he planted a seed to spark my interest. I actually barely even touched it. I let my musician friends mess around on it. Here I discovered my first girl crush even though nothing came of it, I left back to Houston for family reasons. I was in between jobs and I spent time on this farm called the last organic outpost. I heard about this place through word of mouth. So when I was not getting my hands dirty I was rediscovering my own city after 4 years in Austin and came across an art space named TXRX labs. I met this aspiring artist and professor. She became my first muse. I wanted more, she was not gay, but I felt we had a great chemistry. That day I felt so excited about meeting her that I picked up the guitar and started whaling on it and used my poetry skills to come up with a song. I swear I had no since of tuning or rhythm and I could not sing, but I came up with two songs and recorded them. Her art was in how music helps us remember better and I was invited to come to her show. So I had them recorded on a usb and when the time came, I told her that I didnt know really what I was doing, but that I felt extremely inspired to do this. She would later that night contact me and tell me that I should continue to keep making music and I never stopped. Being a urban farmer I had planted these loofahs for the first time on my gate, but they over grew onto the neighbors fence. My father and I had managed it, but they were so happy they flourished down the fence and into a tree. I let them know that they are more than welcome to partake. Loofahs when ready to eat , are like a cucumber and squash and when left on the vine they turn into sponges. They come with this yellow vibrant flower and it created such a beautiful landscape. I went away for the weekend and cameback to half the the vine being dead. After inspecting, they were cut at the base of the vine in 3 different places. I rushed over and ask the neighbors who did this. They were renters and said the landlord did it. I never met this person and I got their numbers to call and paced back and forth thinking of what I was going to say. I was so furious that I told my muse about it and after I shedded some tears. She told me to plant some more. This inspired a song. I told my father that we were not going to take down the dead vine, that they could do it themselves and to let it serve as a reminder that every time they see it , it is the ugliness that comes out of them . It took awhile to take it down and I never did make the call. This is the story I tell when asked about the flowers on my left sleeve and I believe it is my muses’s favorite song.
"....... & the Love Below". DAMN! Honestly, I painstakingly resent the lack of wave not had especially by black men who didn't take to The Love Below. Says so much for such a little bubble pock universe of this multiverse I dwell in.
Mind Compression.(Manifestation of a High school drama project.)
Who am I? That is the question that pops into my head when I watch Break The Silence: The Movie, a documentary movie that shares about a popular K-pop group, Bangtan Sonyeondan (BTS) while they were on tour last year.
Why am I so interested in Russian music?!
Both Tidal and Spotify are excellent platforms that are popular for providing phenomenal user experience to its users. But which streaming service should you buy? That’s not an easy question to answer, to be honest, because both the platforms have their own unique features and benefits. So, today we will make these two phenomenal platforms compete against each other to identify their pros and cons so that you can make a prudent decision.
