…this is not a militant message. I repeat, this is not a militant message.
While browsing through Pinterest I found these dope candles that were actually molded from artist/producer Pharelle Williams hand/wrist region (forehand).
Translated it means “enough is enough. Many of us relate to this as being the universal hand signal to “kick rocks”, “take a petrol shot”, or simply “f*ck off”. Depending on the situation, you may be in the right. ” Po-tatoes, pota-toes.
Dave Chapelle’s 2006 DocuFilm “Dave Chapelle’s Block Party” lead us to 1/2 of the controversy hip-hop group, Dead Prez’s M1. It was then that M1 so formally educated us on the true meaning of this gesture that we so fluidly emulate.
Since I can’t find the actual quote or clip, here’s some info via Wikipedia:
¡Ya basta! is a phrase in Spanish roughly approximate to “Enough is enough!” in English. It has been adopted by several Latin American insurgent groups as an expression of affront towards issues that sparked the original dissent. Its adoption by the EZLN in Mexico as the movement’s motto is exemplary of its popularity and ability to rally diverse ideologies under a common goal.
Rapper M-1 of the group Dead Prez endorsed the use of the phrase and the accompanying hand sign in the film Dave Chappelle’s Block Party. Dead Prez further used the sign in the inside cover art of their album RBG: Revolutionary But Gangsta.
Now on to the art. The candles were created by the artist at Artnau.com, whose vision lies behind seeing it all and then sharing it. There are several other designs in various colors, including Williams’ trademark StarTrak hand symbol. Check out more by clicking HERE!
I’ve got to keep it funky. I only came across the wondrous Fela Kuti only moments ago, but because I’ve yet to tear myself away from his music, story, message and living legacy, the journalist in me feels compelled to share.

Always enlisted to garner the exclusive, Oprah Winfrey has secured the “mother of all interviews” with the late Whitney Houston’s daughter, sister-in-law and brother – the first interview from the family since Houston’s death on Feb. 11.
With the obvious topics and reflections of Whitney’s life being the crux of this conversation, they also plan to dispel rumors and accusations regarding the icon since her passing. Many claim that there are hope that this will breath life into OWN’s Nielson’s rating, which have been less then stellar since the company’s unveiling in Jan. 2011.
One can only pray that Bobbi Christina has sought the proper channels and guidance for grieving properly over her loss. Both Hollywood and the entertainment industry have piss poor reputation for throwing the peace sign to the families of those they’ve so willingly exploited (ex. Maya Campbell). I won;t pretend to understand her pain and suffering at this time. I can only pray that she truly has knowledge of God and falls HEAD FIRST into her faith and will to live.
The interview will air March 11 on OWN, Winfrey’s cable network, as part of the “Oprah’s Next Chapter” series. The time has yet to be disclosed.

BIBLE: I was JUST thinking of @TeedraMoses and listening to every single last one of her EP’s on my ride back to the Panhandle this weekend.
I can never say enough great things about her. Phenomenal artist. Progressively consistent with her music.
Depending on what kind of fan you are of Ms. Moses, this can serve as either the 2nd or 3rd single off her “Luxurious underGRIND” project release shortly after her merger with MMG. The single “Another LuvR” features a hot 16 from MMG labelmate @Wale and if you are true connoisseur of hip-hop, you will automatically recognize and appreciate the sample from ATCQ’s “Excursion” from the Low End Theory album.
The resident historian/nerd in me had to let you know that.
Peep the reel. If you like what you hear afterwards, click the cover art in the side column to download the album!
SheGotPress.com was created as a direct response to the obvious lack of exposure and press for up-and-coming, independent or underground artists, businesses, brands, etc. Our main focus is to shine the appropriate light on artist who have been consistent with their work ethic and have made a “name” for themselves despite the slight from not being a mainstream artist.

Smart people do more listening than talking. Very often your silence in a room can seem louder than everyone that’s screaming at the top of their lungs to be heard.
