Yooo... A few months ago, I had the opportunity to sit down with @realtamiaworld! Prior to that, I was introduced to Tamia in 2 different ways: My mother has always been a fan of her music, and when Tamia & Grant Hill (cause as a 14 year old basketball fan, that's just cool) got married.
To have sat down and discuss her new album 'Passion Like Fire', was full circle for me. Tamia ditched the chair she was sitting in to actually sit with me on the couch, says a lot about who she is. Thank you for your light. You're as genuine, beautiful and cool as they come!
Hip-Hop is my DNA! *Takes A Moment To Salute*
I took this photo a few years ago, catching legendary DJ Tony Crush (aka DJ Tony Tone) in his element, an element that stretches to the start of Hip-Hop.
One day, while chopping it up on the phone with Tone, he noticed that his mother and I have the same last name, family from the same town. Since then, we address each other as family. "I'm raisin' the status quo up / I'm overchargin' niggaz for what they did to the Cold Crush" -Izzo, Jay-Z.
