MCM Wizpak

 

 

Before this product was made available on November 8th it was in my hands and available for my clients to purchase! Reference my instagram page

 

My best practice is to take photos and email my clients as soon as a new product is available.

Earlier in the year I was one of the first experts in the world to learn about the MCM’s celebration of Hip Hops 45th anniversary from a corporate MCM rep.  I was also told to expect to see more product from Celebrity Stylist Misa Hylton and a major celebration with women in Hip Hop.

The MCM X Wizpak backpack has a charger included, and guarantees 14 hours of playback.  The products in this photo is  $1,850.  If you like to purchase the best before anyone else I recommend that you shop with a luxury professional like myself to ensure that you will be ahead of the trend.

Happy Thanksgiving,

Natalie

Open letter to  BenjiRich Here is why Creatives like us need to own this album!

Saturday, November 11th,  after a long few weeks of meetings and ups and downs, my husband who was born and raised in the “D” switched our Sirius radio from talk radio to music per my request!   I hated much of what I heard so he continued to skim until we landed on Shade 45. That moment while I was venting about a situation something magical happened!  A song called True came on and I freaked out because I saw the name DJ ASSAULT (Huge fan of his music) then I read the other names Royce Da 5’9” (Detroit rap legend), RSXGLD, and JMSN.  Hubby and I immediately stopped talking and focused more on the Detroit catch phrases in the song.  Royce Da 5’9”  comes on and we both were geeked (Excited) because we do not hear many Detroit artist on the airwaves, or in the clubs aside from  Big Sean and Dej Loaf we immediately  wondered who was RSXGLD, when did this song come out and why are we just hearing their song TRUE!

Just as the song was coming to an end my husband said, “Nat,”  I wish they would have added some Jit to this song, as soon as my husband said, “Jit” the rhythm switched to 808’s and Detroit techno/Jit, we both were shouting as if our favorite athlete made a score!  The moment that rhythm changed it reminded me of when I lived in Toronto and had a girls weekend July 1st Canada Day and July 4th Independence Day with Ernestine to visit Nicole (Carlos Rogers cousin In-Law). That was the weekend Destiny’s Child had a concert and the Club was packed to see Beyoncé, Kelly, Latavia Roberson and Letoya Luckett.

It also brought me back to the days when I worked in Fairlane Mall at Coach with Tanya, Nakisha, Adriana, Deon, Kimica and Cyntara.  I enjoyed my days  living in Detroit and Farmington Hills driving Downtown Detroit on the Jefferson Freeway in the tunnel during 4th of July Weekend with my best friend Nicole.   After hours on the East Side where you can only get in with secret knocks on the door!  8 mile,  7 mile and SouthField Freeway,  Lodge 10 Freeway, Northland Mall, Wing Dings at Crystals, Fish Fry’s with our family, 2 for $60.00 Moët and Chandon, Better Made hot chips, and getting my hair done by Otha White.  While the visuals rapidly went through my mind of my time living in Detroit I quickly searched for the song on iTunes and tweeted about it before I started my shift at work!  Thank you Ro Spit and 14KT for painting beautiful memories with your words and for sharing your art with the world!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here I am today Sunday, November 12th

Listening to the entire album for the first time this morning and I realize why I am so drawn to it!  This album is the soundtrack to my current mood! It’s  a reminder to creatives like us to focus on what’s  important, do not get distracted by negativity and that steadfastness is key!  Spectators watch what you are doing, get inspired by it and create it for themselves without acknowledgment.   The spectators  don’t realize that when you finally reach your peak it’s because of all of the sweat, tears and endurance that it took. BenjiRich  the formula that we create remains silent, many won’t celebrate you when you get there and get uptight while  they watch you accomplish your dreams.  Check these songs out and let me know what you think!

My favorite songs were selected based on how it related to me and what I am going through on my path to greatness and dodging B.S

 

RSXGLD album are:

True 

“I laced them boot straps and got my ass up! I ain’t never going back”
Days and Nights of hard work and sacrifice!

“You reminisce I remember”
“N a product of Reganomics slaving for dollars”
The mentality that was forced on many and they were lost and turnt out!  In my current situation when people try to keep up with the Jones’s and do wicked things to take money away from some of us honest hard workers to pay the bills of what they tried to keep up with!

Quotes that sound like Benji Rich and my conversation

“Like,  (blank) think,  (Blank) think we doing ish just to be doing it, like we ain’t got a method to it you feel?”  I will explain this to you via phone but I think that you already know how we get down like Voltron Phase 2 almost complete!

“For real this ain’t got nothing to do with us!  This coming from a higher place, that means there’s more at stake, so it’s more to hate! This ‘ish more than great!”  God bless us

I Believe

Belief in our visions and crushing our goals!

What’s Happenin’  Brutha
Anyone who lost a loved one will relate to this!  I remember calling insurance companies, the government and lawyers December 2007 when the tragedy in our family happened.

Thought Bubble

“We live next to the demons and heathens”

“The thoughts in my mind flying like a car with a drift”

Busy But My Bills Paid

CNOTES Rocking the crowd.

I am very selective with who I use this platform for, but the conversation that I had with this young star made me actually listen to his music!  His song Busy But My Bills Paid peaked my interest when I saw several people making youtube videos rapping along to it!  I also relate to this song as I work a full-time job, I collaborate with other creatives and internationally promoted  a few tours for my Luxshop4u community members one of whom I styled for.

Natalie:  What caught my ear was your use of words! Busy But My Bills Paid represents many of my fellow creatives and I who work around the clock!

CNOTES:  Yea, when I wrote busy but my bills paid, I already knew it related to everyone!  The single mother, the nine to fivers the hustlers, the women who own their own businesses and each one of us who know they have responsibilities and having our bills paid are always on top of the list!

Natalie:  When I spoke to you earlier in the week you mentioned the Crab in a barrel syndrome!

CNOTES:  Yea especially out here in NY we don’t collaborate much down here! Look at  Atlanta, even the producers are making beats together.   So when u say crab in the barrel if u ever see them in a barrel they are all pulling each other down so the other can get to the top.  That’s what I meant.

Natalie:  How did you get a viral Busy But My Bills Paid challenge going?  That’s a great marketing tool!

CNOTES:  Again the song is undeniable so I just figured it would  be a cool idea for people to really join in on this I wanted to see who is busy and who’s bills were paid.  Lol,  I appreciate everyone who’s joining in on the fun.

CNOTES  filming for the BET Cypher

Natalie:  “Close mouths don’t get fed, that”what mom’s said” What else did she teach you that stands out?

CNOTES:  That’s exactly what she taught me to stand out, lol.  I get so much from my mom and grandma who’s no longer with me in the physical.  I mean even down to my swag my cadence.   I miss them man!

Natalie:  My condolences for your loss!  Aside from them most likely being your number one fan who else would you say is your number one fan?

CNOTES:  I believe I’m my number one fan and worst critic at the same time.  Sometimes I rewind a song I did and I be like damn are they not hearing what I said! Lol

Natalie:  Congratulations on shooting your Bet freestyle last week Friday!   Do you have a team that connects you with media outlets or do you contact them?

CNOTES:  Yea another marketing tool, my team and I thought of you know!  I just network, if I see something that looks authentic and interesting then I inquire, but if it’s not gonna push my career or push the culture I won’t bother.  “Busy But My Bills Paid is a hit record but it’s more to get you moving than me just showing you how lyrical I am.  So I just wanted to give them bars on this freestyle, shout out to all of the legends that I named.

Natalie:  What’s your favorite spot in Brooklyn?

CNOTES:  Uhhh, too many to name  and a few I can’t name gotta keep ’em low lol.  But for the recently it’s been the Barclay center I still be excited like there’s really a stadium in Brooklyn!

Natalie:  Do you think that you would ever partner with a Brooklyn Legend like Lil Cease, Lil Kim, Fabulous for a “Busy But My Bills Paid Remix?”

CNOTES:  All bets are on the table!  I just want us to unite and help each other, follow BIG’s advice and keep Brooklyn moving.

Natalie: Any plans to somehow perform during The Do Over outdoor party on October 1st in Brooklyn?

CNOTES:  Yea that would be great, sign me up!  Lol, if it’s BROOKLYN it’s me
