  • The Real With Reese: Young Parenting

    - As seen in the April/June 2012 issue of The INDIEgator, Page 38. - Article Short Link:   by Reese Kirkland Jr. (R.I.P.) What I want to discuss with you is a topic dear to my heart. It’s about parenting, young parents. As young people, we seem not to get along with our parental partners; what I see is a lot of ya’ll not allowing the children to spend time with the other parent. I can understand all kinds of reasons for that, definitely being if the other parent is not a good person, their lifestyle, mannerisms or whatever it might be. But really I see a lot of it just being jealousy, whether that person might be doing a little better than the other or if they have someone new in their life. Unless it’s very serious why the child is not allowed to be around that other parent, please let your child, please let your child, get some time to know themselves. As a person brought up in a single parent home, having a stepfather, I had everything until I got older,

One of the stand-out contestants I gave a big fat, no doubt about it “Yes!” to was Stevin Marsh. He came in with his bigTexas cowboy hat, that sexy Guitar (I love guitars) and he did his thing! We all asked him a few questions and then he gave us a LIVE performance for part of his audition.  I found him to have a very Beautiful and Powerful voice, excellent string skills and I’m sure he’ll do quite well in this competition as he has in many music competitions over the years. I was so impressed by his sound that I couldn’t help but want to get to know more about this Artist and see how

  • Prince Stamina Says: “Stay On Your Craft”

    - As seen in the April/June 2012 issue of The INDIEgator, Page 67. - Article Shortlink: The INDIEgator: What is one of the things you think some of the New Upcoming Artists’ biggest mistakes are? Prince Stamina: The biggest mistake artists can make right now is to be too focused on the money, because if you’re too focused on the money then you’re letting your craft slip away. You’re not focused on what you’re doing in the music industry. If the music deteriorates you’re not going to make any money regardless. You may have a side hustle but we’re talking about the music right now. You may go on stage and rock 15,000 people but if everybody’s standing there not doing anything and not feeling your music, you’re not selling any units at the end of the day and therefore you won’t make money. So stop being focused on that (money); start being focused on getting your craft up, stop making this B.S. music. I’m serious. Music is getting worse and worse right now.

  • On The Shelf: Playin’ In The Streets and The Virgin Memoirs

    - As seen in the April/June 2012 issue of The INDIEgator, Page 23. - Article Short Link Review by Kitty Y Williams Above are two books that I’ve had the pleasure to read recently. Demetrias D. Charles and Miah Gamati grew up on the rough side of the streets in big cities thousands of miles apart from each other. A common theme they share is suffering abuse and the absence of love early on, followed by getting caught up in “the life” as they attempted to fend for themselves in a cold world at young ages. Both Playin’ In The Streets and The Virgin Memoirs share deeply personal details in a chronicled approach, about the journeys of these two souls through all of their tribulations and learning experiences. As cliché as it may sound, I laughed a bit and admit I even got a little teary eyed at some parts as I found myself able to identify with and relate to some of the harsh life lesson’s they’ve learned. In reading these, I was also reminded never to judge anyone
