Whilst solely providing the vocals for ‘Crazy´ – Elektrik DJ (Phonetic Recordings) & ´Believe In You´ – Wil Milton (Blak Ink Music).

Carlene has recently recorded her self penned & composed debut album @ Villalobos recording Studios, Almeria under the supervision of Errol Ross (who received his Gold & Silver discs for producing ´The Selector´- one of Ska Music´s biggest contributions to date).
Her four releases ‘Before I Go’, ‘Vibrations’, ‘Fast Food’ & ‘No Other Choice’ have received a lot of support & positive feedback thus far.

A CAUSE FOR CELEBRATION!!

"Mummy's got you..."

"Mummy's got you..."



So today’s entry falls only two days before my lil man’s THIRD BIRTHDAY & it’s fair to say that I am equally as hyped as he is!! I am seriously excited about his day!! 🙂
Without gushing on, Amari is an extraordinary character that has endured his fair share of challenges already in his short existence to date. Those of you that know, know. For those don’t, you can grasp a good idea from one of my earlier blog entries: Back On The Grind…March 2011 …now re-read it from from HIS perspective. Chokes me up everytime.

Today, he exudes sheer love & his sole purpose in life is to have as much fun as he can!! On a serious note, I can & continue to learn so much from him.

1) What do you do & how well do you do it?

I’m a Rap Artist that does it to my best of my ability.

2) Where do you foresee yourself 12 months from today?

In 12 months I see myself on TV shows and hearing my music everywhere.

3) What was one of the most memorable times in your life?

I remember when I was young my father and I use to play Kurtis Blow and Levert driving around the city. It starting me rapping.

4) Given the resources, what one change would you make in the world & why?

If I had the resources I will probably open up a after school center for low income families. That has variety of activities. Keep them out the streets. 

5) What do you think of my blog? (Message for my readers)

I Think QueenBrit is official. Not only is she promoting herself, but she’s promoting upcoming artists. She feels the hunger, making noise from another Side of the world. I love the Blog keep uplifting. 

iJohn Storm’s song selection of the day is:

‘All About The Benjamins’ – Puff Daddy ft The Notorious B.I.G, The LOX & Lil’ Kim
