‘Feed Them the Fruits of Eden’ #AmethystList

Amethyst List Album

“I seduce you with this Aston Martin I bought today.”

Future- Hallucinating

Temptations

An #AmethystList dedicated to the natural feelings brought up towards vices.  In a world where we are constantly shamed for our desires I’m a person of full admiration with lifestyles that harm no one.  Honouring people is an important part to coexistence & what better way to do that but through music.

Now like all of my playlists this is shuffle-friendly but sounds really amazing if you play it in chronological order.  Let’s explore this list we have here:

  • Wild Love
  • Ignorant Sh*t
  • Plastic Bag
  • Hallucinating
  • Insecure
  • Stuck With Me
  • Paradise
  • Aston Martin Music
  • Cherry Wine
  • First World Problemz / Nobody Carez

Let’s get into the breakdown but if you want to dive right in click here.  For the music lovers here we go.

An eerie sound to tune the mind we have “Wild Love” from Cashmere Cat featuring The Weeknd & Francis and The Lights.  Abel’s voice is so haunting here I can play this song on repeat.

Inner City Vices we’re picking up the tempo with this classic “Ignorant Sh*t” by Jay-z & Beanie Sigel spitting catchy lyrics & punchlines for days.  It plays right into “Plastic Bag” by Drake & Future.  Magic City on a Monday, this is probably one of my favourite stripper songs off of the beat alone.  Followed up by “Hallucinating” we have Future again. ‘I’m a young n*gga with this cheque & I f*ck it up, the freshest thang I ever bought was that Bentley Truck.’

The Vice Of Love we snap into “Insecure” by Brent Faiyaz.  ‘Please don’t think I’m insecure, I just can’t trust no one else.  Please don’t think I’m insecure, I just feel safe by myself.’ Now, understand I love to add a reply to songs that sound extremely similar production wise.  So “Stuck With Me” by Tamia was a perfect rebuttal. ‘Baby, you’re stuck with me.’

Matching the vibes I bring to you a fairly new artist Malcolm Jabriel that reached out to me & immediately I knew where to place this song called “Paradise.”  Jazzy tones & a sexy ballad it opens the door for another classic “Aston Martin Music” by Rick Ross, Drake, & Chrisette Michele. ‘Would have came back for you. I just needed time to do what I had to do. Caught in the life I can’t let it go. Whether that’s right I will never know.’

Now a little pick me up “Cherry Wine” by Nas & the late Amy Winehouse.  These lyrics are powerful beyond measure & always makes me feel like Nas is talking about me, take a look,“I want someone who like the champagne I like. My a-alike, someone to talk me off the bridge any day or night. She teach me how to live, she ain’t afraid of life.  Not easily impressed with the rich and famous life.  Cause she done been there and heard all the rumors before.  She loves art, she ride out with me on my music tour.  She like the herbs, natural medicine, she cooking good. She tell me everything is cool when it ain’t looking good.”

Now this final song to follow up I pat myself on the back for noticing how amazing these tracks play together.  “First world Problemz / Nobody Carez” by Brent Faiyaz.  I love this 3 piece song with a poem at the intermission.

Now your palate is wet & savory take a listen here on Apple Music.  Also hit follow on my Apple Music Profile to get ahead of the curb & hear my other lists.

Sound Cloud Amethyst List

The first SoundCloud #AmethystList!!!  These lists are going to be solely focused on the music with an emphasis on mixtapes & underground artists mixed in.

Childish Gambino

Childish Gambino

“But stay woke, n*ggas creeping.” Childish Gambino

What an inspiring creative Donald Glover is.  So much so over the summer I was compelled to paint him.  From music, live performing, and his shows I’m always amazed.  Many people say it’s impossible to pursue so many endeavours at once but this gentleman here is proof to how you can create with a holistic approach.

Mushrooms & Roses

Janelle Monae

A queen with power.  I am in awe of her work ethic & brilliant creations.  This painting was like a Tinkerbell vision all majestic & her top was designed to be a heart of gold.

Romantic Call

Banana Leaves & Royalty

This painting was a quick manifestation inspired by a combination of the musical artist Patra, the photography of my good friend Reesee Ziggazagga, & the beautiful voice of singer Brent Faiyaz in the song “No one Knows.”

 

Instrument & PRAY.

When You’re Reminded of Real Friends

These two paintings brought up full unconditional love I have for my friends I gifted them to.  I love that art can catch the moments your heart swells up with love for someone.

My second artshow was nothing short of amazing.  It was blessed with healthy vegan soul food by Cocktail Andreena! (@cocktaildreena) , we displayed photography from my photoshoot with my mentor Reesee Ziggazagga (@ziggazaggastudio), and had the dopest DJ Killa Kels (@killaxkels).

I’m always grateful to create events that fuse creativity, love, & passions!

Keep an eye out for pictures!*

Glimpse of Poetry

We Don’t Stop Growing🙏🏽

Amethyst as a Baby!


I carried & brought three goddesses into this physical world.  The lessons they have taught me in the last 6 years have varied. One lesson though will always hold weight.

Growth is inevitable. Children grow so rapidly before you but never forget you are growing in front of them. I prayed to be free from my unhappy life so I could actually reach my truest potential. I saw many times over, the people I was surrounded by were a by product of my own mind being hazardous.

Take that in. I noticed my environment and the people within it were a by product of my mind without clarity.

It takes away my power to say anything outside of the truest realization… that I create my own world.

We constantly believe well something outside of me happened that is bad and then we create a paradigm where there is something opposing you.

No one wishes bad on themselves. Don’t misinterpret this as God, Universe is ever punishing you.

There are no punishments.

There is only the Universal Laws & how those laws respond to your Vibration. Frequency is an inherent feeling within us all whether it’s high or low is dependent on the condition of the subconscious mind.

My children are my honest to Gods greatest gift. I never understood the responsibility I hold to flourishing until I realized they look up to me.  That not only am I in charge of my frequency but I’m in charge of allowing theirs to unfold the way it’s meant to without any influence of my beliefs.

This desire to be a great mother has manifested more for my life than anything else.

Heir, The Artshow

Gratitude is all I feel.  I’m beyond grateful to have seen my art finally placed on a wall.  The team was amazing. The energy was amazing.  The club Bunda Lounge was so accommodating that they even played “Amethyst List” prior to the DJ’s set.

It was an empowering experience for my art to fulfill my first show!


I am beyond excited for June 9th, my second show!!!
