I've been vibing to "Love Galore" by SZA ft Travis Scott for a while now and posting lyrics. After seeing her timeline and seeing "CTRL" dropped I instantly had to listen. SZA is the home-girl for this one. She came through and sang about everything we think sometimes. Like girl you are all up in our cerebrum with these lyrics. Love it! SZA basically came through and put our group text messages, the text messages we write and delete, the clapbacks we say, and the moments we keep inside on full blast. Covering individuality, love, boys, side chicks, value, how guys play so much, and all of the feels.
Yes SZA! You snatched grooves with 'CTRL". From the tracks, features from Travis , Kendrick Lamar, James Fauntleroy, Isaiah Rashad, to the song titles SZA did her thang. I also love that her grandmother and mother are featured on her album as well! "Broken Clocks" yall know I love that one with the whole The Mogul Minute thing! So huge shout out to Top Dawg Entertainment and SZA for releasing a super special project that's 100% expressive and official. That "20 Something" record man oh man ! Girl you're the truth!
I was my parents jewel and yet I am treated like trash . I have been taken ? I am separated from my family. I do not know where I am. The conditions are horrible. I am abused, not fed, and forced to do unimaginable things every day. I am beaten . I am starved. I am not allowed to bathe some days. The room barely has light . I don't even understand how I'm still alive. I miss my family. I can not get online to see your hashtags although millions of you posted them . But you don't even know I am missing. Have you forgotten? I am more than a hashtag. I am a human being and a victim of human trafficking.
Human trafficking is a world-wide crime that forces women, little girls, teenagers,
little boys and men and exploits them sexually and forces them to do hard labor. This is a serious matter, that needs to be addressed. Can you imagine everywhere you are going , you are looking for your loved one? I was walking with a friend a few years ago and a lady was staring at me so hard. We kept walking and then she said said "Wait! Stop!" We weren't to far away from her so we did. She then said "You look so much like my daughter, I just thought you were her. She's been missing for a while and I really thought you were her." My heart broke for her. I couldn't imagine being in her position, that everywhere she goes, she is hoping to find her daughter. I pray she does one day. I think about that moment all the time because there's so many people missing and they're never returning HOME! Remember a few weeks ago when all of those girls went missing in D.C ? Did you forget ? Was it just a popular hashtag to post in the moment. Does anyone know if all of them were returned ? We may never know. Remember the Boko Haram girls? Some of them were returned and others are still gone. What about the thousands of others that our taken each year to foreign countries or other states? Human Trafficking isn't something to take lightly. Lives are being changed and taken for the worst. Some escape and return to tell the stories. Some people like flight attendant Shelia Fredrick who intercepted and saved the life of of a 14 or 15 year old girl whom was with tried to engage conversation with the girl but the older man she was with was angered.
During the flight Shelia left a note in one of the bathrooms and the little girl wrote back "I need help" on it . The pilot was notified and police arrested the man when the plane landed. Thankful to Shelia and all the flight attendants whom are trained to spot human trafficking victims . The criminal justice system has to work harder at prosecuting these horrible traffickers that our stealing lives and turning them into slaves.
Freedom is being ripped swiftly from so many lives to benefit others for profit or work. It's horrible and men aren't the only traffickers , there are women traffickers, and even family members whom sell their child for money or a pay off a debt . There's so much going on in this world. We can't just let social media post be a topic for a minute and not continue to discuss the true meaning behind it. Or to high light it's importance. It's importance because you could be in that position. What would you do if you were? We must unite to end this and help find the missing.
People might say "Well they ran away." It does not matter! Even if they ran away they do not deserve to be taken advantage of assaulted, held against their will . This is an on going problem and we need to do more to help this situation. The National Human Trafficking phone number is 1 (888) 373-7888 . I pray all victims of human trafficking out taken home.

THE MOGUL MINUTE : MEEK MILL, CHRIS BROWN , AND TY DOLLA $IGN ARE READY TO GIVE YOU "WHATEVER YOU NEED" (NEW MUSIC)
The Meek Streak continues. A few weeks ago Meek Mill played a few lit snippets of his unreleased tracks on Instagram live. I watched a few minutes and I remember hearing Chris Brown's vocals for a few seconds on one of the songs . So I highly anticipated hearing the full track . On May 6, 2017 Meek celebrated his 30th birthday and released a three track project entitled "Meekend Mu$ic" via MyMixtapez followed by music videos for "Left Hollywood" and "Litty" ft Tory Lanez. This week he released his new song and video "Glow Up" . One things for sure , Meek isn't letting up any time soon . I have a feeling that he's going to keep dropping banger after banger until he releases his full album . If you want to see Meek shut down the stage this summer , get your tickets to the "Against All Odds Tour" featuring Yo Gotti. Last night Meek Mill released his new single "Whatever You Need" featuring Chris Brown and Ty Dolla $ign. The song samples the 1991 single "Whatever You Want" by Tony, Toni, Tone. This new track is produced by DJ Mustard. All three of these talented artist brought their unique styles and flows together to create a perfect mix of rap and R&B . This track is straight heat . Meek , Chris , and Ty Dolla $ign did their things with this one. FACTS!!!
