So I started writing and pressed the delete button ten times. I still can't embrace the fact that The Obama's have officially left The White House after eight years. I just can't accept it or better yet I don't want to. However to see their last speeches as President and First Lady and to see them carry themselves with pride, excellence, strength, and love through out the years will never be forgotten. Even today as they exited the presidential realm they still stood strong, hopeful, and proud. I am forever inspired and moved by their leadership, kindness, family, intelligence, and vision. I voted for the first black president of the United States with my grandmother and mother in 2009 and again in 2012. Now at 25, I can say that I've witnessed eight years of a black family that powerfully and lovingly called The White House home. As parents, as President and First lady, and as two individuals that cherished education showed the world that "Yes We Can" achieve greatness in the United States of America. For months we've witness the ups and downs of debates, protests, and racism at high levels during this campaign and election. Some of us thought that 2017 would be the first time we'd have a woman serve as president. Only for things to not go as we imagined ( but we will one day ) . Today as I viewed the inauguration ( do you think I was going to not see my President and First Lady shine ?) I literally watched the television in shock. Did the though of is this really happening ever cross your mind, anytime ? Yet the new president was sworn in and the crowd cheered. Protesters all across the U.S let their voices be heard and that isn't going to stop. We can be hopeful, we can be strong , we have to really continue to unite as the people and speak out about change in this country. We all come from different backgrounds and we may not relate to the new president or agree with what he says or does. We just have to remember that we have to do our part we can't rely on just him to do everything. So as we get ourselves together, cope, and focus on our families , dreams, and how we can make each other better , here's a few songs with a message to listen to this weekend. Here is your Time For A Change Playlist .

KeKe Palmer wears what she wants, says what she wants, and does her own thing. She's officially in her own lane. Whether she's rocking a short cut, curls or colorful waist long braids she's defining her own style and living her own truth. She definitely serves up fashionable flavors daily from jeans , crop tops, to gorgeous red carpet looks. It's a given that people tend to think that just because she's a celeb she's isn't suppose to show emotion and just be the way the public wants her to be. When all in all, the gag is that she is comfortably KeKe , she's proudly being herself , and she doesn't belong to you. People may throw shade on social media and internet blogs but none of it is stopping the young beautiful actress, song writer, dancer, entrepreneur, and business woman from winning and continuing to succeed. She's still growing as an adult as we all are. This young history maker has tons of accomplishments under her belt already and she has so much more to achieve. There's a quote by the great Alice Walker that says “Don’t wait around for other people to be happy for you. Any happiness you get you’ve got to make yourself.” KeKe Palmer isn't waiting . She's making her own happiness. That's the true gag! Like it or not she doesn't belong to you. You as in the media, you as in your opinion, or you as in haters or you as in anybody that tries to block her shine. She belongs to herself and God. Dig that!

Lloyd's single "Tru" is definitely one of my favorite songs of 2016. After hearing it for the first time a few months ago I instantly fell in love with the track. It was kind of ironic because a few weeks before that I was listening to "Street Love" thinking man we really need another Lloyd album. I reached out to Lloyd via Twitter to tell him how much I liked "Tru" and he tweeted back. The TRU EP released 12/9 on all music arenas including iTunes, Google Play, Tidal, and Spotify. The single "TRU" is an anthem about being true to yourself. Lloyd touches on the trouble he's had in his personal life and industry life. How he had to revamp and get a new team to keep his dream alive. He wants to be accepted for being himself and doing what he wants to do. If you've ever felt neglected or not accepted you can relate to this song. A lot of times so many downs happen that we try to hide them and high light the ups. Meanwhile we're hurting. However freeing ourselves comes from just being ourselves and letting the hurt pain and trouble out others not only can relate but can understand. He also talks about the pain of losing a baby and not understanding why. Yet he kept his relationship with the Lord and took care of his family through it all. He just wants to be true and that's all it's about. All in all the TRU EP is a sincere project from the curly head black boy named Lloyd. It features Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, and 2 Chainz."Heaveny Body" featuring Rick Ross is sexy, sultry, and smooth. This is definitely going to be a ladies favorite. "Holding" featuring Lil Wayne is definitely a much needed track. Lil Wayne and Lloyd collaborated in 2007 on the chart topping song "You". So for them to link up for this steamy track is super lit. They have a chemistry that just fits perfect together. "Excited" is just like the title of the song. It's exciting . This track has an old school yet new school vibe. It definitely makes you want to dance and rock out to song. It just one of those sizzling hot songs. Lloyd turned up all the way with this one. The beat on it is super duper duper alluring ! Tru Remix featuring 2 Chainz added the hardship of not having heat , hot water, and having to leave people behind to just love life. S/o to A-Major, Jasper, Big Mike, Justice League , Ralph Cee, and Firas on the production and engineering . Okay let's all agree that we're so happy to have Lloyd back. I sure am! Now I can't wait for the full album.

There is a Bantu Proverb that says " The eye never forgets what the heart has seen." J.Cole released his fourth album "4 Your Eyez Only" December 9, 2016 after releasing his "Eyez" documentary, and videos for "False Prophets" and "Everybody Dies". J.Cole always shakes the internet and music world up with his lay it on the line, solidness, and straight forwardness. "4 Your Eyez Only" takes you on an expedition through the mind, heart, soul, and eyes of J.Cole as he recounts everything that has made him into the man, husband, father, and vessel he is today. Have you heard the quote " The eyes are the mirror to the soul?" Mirrors are used in this saying as a reference to reflecting on ones life. Sometimes we have to reflect on the past to be able to deal with the present and the future. So let's get into why this album is so powerful.
1.) For Whom The Bell Tolls
English Poet John Donne wrote a poem entitled " For Who The Bell Tolls" the poem emphasizes that because we are all alive , that the loss of one of us a humans is a loss to everyone. On this song J.Cole refers that pain , pressure, confusion and death can not be escaped. That even through hopes and prayers death still comes to us all. So the loss of some one close affects others.
Growing up in the hood isn't easy. Wanting more and having less. The pain is unforgettable. Crime , selling drugs, losing friends to the streets. Watching a family member being taken to jail. All of this is forever immortalized because the pain never leaves. J.Cole touches on the fact that people tend to love you more when you die. He also sheds light on how black you men are categorized to either be rappers, sell drugs, or play sports instead of being educated or having other careers. He also mentions "Strange Fruit" a poem by Abel Meeropol sang by Billie Holiday which talked about the blood shed of blacks whom were killed by lynchings. Yet modern day lynchings are still happening by cops against black young males.
3.) Deja Vu
This track embraces a story of unexpected young love, being attracted to some one even though they may be with some one else. Beauty and dreaming. He raps about "Every winner got a lose some day". So he's referring to the person she's dating . The guy is obviously winning cause they have her, but he's about to lose her to him.
4.) Ville Mentality
This song is major . Often times where we grow up shapes our minds, personalities, and actions. J.Cole grew up in Fayetville, North Carolina. He had a close-freind to gun violence. On this song a little girl tells how her father was setup , shot and killed. She also mentions how she didn't go to his funeral and how sometimes she gets mad at her mom for being mean to her and she wishes her dad was here. The street mentality often leads to more pain . His friends life was taken. The little girl who is speaking on the track expresses the pain of losing her father.
5.)She's Mine Part 1
J.Cole is a married man. This song is a staple on his album. For one social media has affected so many relationships. J.Cole doesn't blast his personal life or marriage on social media. Their relationship and marriage is beautifully theirs. On this song he expressed how love changed his life. Men sometimes have a problem with opening up because they haven't had a father or male figure to show them how to express themselves and how to really let someone in. That hurt from growing without a proper example affected one so deep that love seemed so distant. Yet the love is found and here to stay.
Having a relationship with the Lord can change your life like never before. Better days come when you reflect, meditate, get stronger, and asking for forgiveness. J.Cole expresses how God knows us so he understands all of are faults and that no matter what God is still around. Change comes from inside. He also talks about the battle with fame and being himself. But he states he will be a vessel for the truth. It is at the end of the song that he talks about his friend "22 year old James" who was killed.
When you get the chance to move out the hood into a good neighborhood and you're black , the neighbors assume you are a drug dealer. J.Cole discussed wanting privacy, getting away from the fame, not having fancy cars, and just trying to live a better life. He mentions "So much for integration" Stating that even though the laws were passed for blacks and whites to be together, they still don't want blacks in their neighborhoods, stores, schools, establishments, etc.
8.) Foldin Clothes
It's all about the simple things in a relationship and life that show love. J.Cole talks about seeing his wife pregnant asleep and that all he wants to do is make her happy and be with her. So he talks about folding clothes as an example to show that something as small as that can mean so much. He talks about being present and balanced. We get so distracted by our phones and life problems that we aren't really present our minds are somewhere else. Yet this time J.Cole is saying that he wants to just spend time with the woman he loves and connect, watch movies, and just enjoy each other. At the end of the song he states that "N*ggas from the hood are the best actors" because they have to not smile and be tough all the time to the point where they believe it so much they forget the simple things like love, happiness, and a future beyond the streets.
9.)She's Mine Part 2
It is here that we hear the pride and joy of J.Cole's heart. His daughter has arrived. We hear her cries. This song just opens you to his heart as a man, husband and father. That his daughter is a gift from God. That all his life has been a fight to get to this very point where his daughter is born. He said " F*ck this album look what God made". This song is just perfect and soul-felt.
Congratulations to him and wife Melissa. Cole also discusses greed from corporations , spending money with big business meanwhile the people that can't afford it remain in a no money cycle trying to fit in for things such as Black Friday.
10.) 4 Your Eyez Only
J.Cole delivers the story of his friend James who he informed us was killed earlier in the album. His friend had felonies and couldn't get a real job to support his daughter so he remained in the streets although he wanted to stop and J.Cole tried to steer him away from it .His friend feels like he might not see his daughter grow up because he might lose his life but hopes he doesn't . Yet James prays that he could be with her in spirit if he does. He prays she won't date a guy simialar to himself and how she might have misuderstood feelings about him for not being around. He refers to the fact that he also lost his dad to gun violence so he know what it feels like. He tells how he told her mom to name her "Nina". Nina is the little girl you heard speaking on "Ville Mentality". James wants his daughter to date a guy with goals and not someone that would leave her future child fatherless because he's either dead or incarcerated. He says he hoped that this story doesn't have to be told because he'd still be around but he already has a feeling he won't be. J.Cole talks about the last convo he had with James. That even though they grew up from children to adults their paths were different. James was having premontions of his death and that he wanted J.Cole to be the one that told his story to Nina. He even tells Cole he thinks life would be better if we stayed segregated but J.Cole realizes if that happened he himself wouldn't be here because his father is black and mother is white. Yet J.Cole tells the story to Nina that her dad wasn't real because all of the street life , he was real because he loved her. In other words James risked everything about his life to go get it and provide for his daughter that he loved but he ended up losing his life because of it.
J.Cole tells multiple intertwining stories on this album that connect to a bigger picture. From his eyes to our hearts. This verisimilitude of this album is one to be respected and held dear. The album sheds light on so many situations including mass incarceration , growing up with out a father, lack of affection, maturing, love, success, racial categorization ( assuming blacks have to be in entertainment, sports, or sell drugs) , econimic greed, killings by blacks or whites, and so much more . There's so much you can learn from this album. I literally sat there listening to the "4 Your Eyez Only " blowed away by J.Cole's truthfulness and his ability to put this album together so poetically raw. He also talked about having a relationship with Lord Jesus is important and I must say honestly the more you walk with him , the more things change for the better. The album is amazing ! Congratulations, J.Cole again on another successful album, your marriage and daughter.

Over a hundred ladies joined together to network, honor, and support business, philanthropy, and entertainment. Founder and CEO of WEEN, Valeisha Butterfield coordinated a star studded pink carpet for such a glamorous evening. Midwin Charles, Meagan Goode, Jazmyn Nology, DJ Olivia Dope, Shantelle Tamara, Teyana Taylor, Geneva Reed-Veal ( The mother of Sandra Bland) , Dia Simms, Elaine Welteroth, Angela Yee, Yara Shahidi, Kristi Luv, Xo Necole, Keri Hilson, June Ambrose, Ethiopia Habtemariam, Sabrina Thompson, Giselle Phelps, Lil Kim, Lauren Lake, and so many others attended the show . A few of the women even scored an award for their hard-work and dedication. You can read the award recipients below. All in all it is a must that we as women continue to come together and celebrate one another's victories instead of putting each other down. The ladies were all smiles as they slayed in their stylish attire. The Source Magazine's own L. Londell McMillan , and so many happy guest attended the sold out show. Although I wasn't in the building , I attended vicariously through social media. I definitely hope to be there next year. The sisterhood is strong and the love and excitement for epic greatness is real. I am so proud of every woman that is going after a dream , defeating the odds, exploring new journeys, and not letting anything stop them. We are amazing, empowered, and beautiful.

THE MOGUL MINUTE : THE LYRICAL POWER OF LIN MANUEL, NAS, DAVE EAST, AND ALOE BLACC ! ( @THEMOGULGIRL)
There's an African Proverb that says a "Roaring lion kills no game". In other words you can't achieve anything by just sitting around doing nothing. The following men decided to make things happen and picked up their pen. Artist Lin Manuel, Nas, Dave East, and Aloe Blacc all chose to use their ink and voice to tell their stories to the world. Their new song "Wrote My Way Out" which will be featured on the The Hamilton Mixtape weighs in on their personal lives and how writing their thoughts and sharing their thoughts, and ideas on tracks changed their lives forever. Listen to the song below and look out for the official mixtape release.
