We are dealing with the State of Music and in particularHip Hop and the effects it has on the people. You have to ask yourself what happened? What happened to music? If you remember in the 70s and even the 80’s and into the 90’s music was socially conscious it was politically correct. Everything that was going on in the world was mirrored in the music and vice versa but today things have changed.
What happened to the music?
The one consistent that you see with all of the genres of “rap” is that it is not uplifting life anymore. It is not socially conscious. The so called conscious rap does not get any play on radio or tvat all.
It is by design that the gangster, young swag, and dance rappers get pushed. The people who are in control do not need money they just want to control the music.
The music is the soul.
The music is the people.
If you can control the music then you can control the people. Our intellectual property, the things that influence the music, the things we write say and do. We have to learn to hold on to it and control it for us.
We have to take that back. ~Sol Messiah

Momma’s Hip Hop Kitchen Vol. 5 , “BE THE CURE!” is excited to celebrate our 5th YEAR ANNIVERSARY Concert and kick off International Women’s Month on Sat., March 3, 2012 at Hostos Community College in the South Bronx. Our goal is to initiate dialogue and inspire actionin supporting healthier nutrition, more physical activity, and increased community involvement among women and their families through the vibrant culture of hip- hop. We will use hip-hop as a tool to address and bring awareness to both reproductive cancers (i.e. cervical, endometrial, ovarian, vaginal) and breast cancer which disproportionately affect communities of color.
WE GET IT!!!! We see the women in our communities dying of breast and cervical cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, AIDS and domestic violence in our hoods all of the time. We know and understand that poverty is a human condition marked by substandard housing, low educational attainment, and subsistence-level employment. We understand that the poverty which plagues our communities has enabled high rates of unemployment, exposure to environmental toxins, and poor access to health care. Yes, WE GET IT!!! So we, at Momma’s Hip Hop Kitchen choose to BE THE CURE. We acknowledge that we cannot depend on our government to bring equality to these disparities. We can no longer wait for politicians and government officials to get it together. Time is running out for our families and communities who are in desperate need of proper healthcare. It is up to US to use preventative measures to lessen the mortality rates.
African American women have the highest breast cancer death rate among minority women—32.8 per 100,000 population. Latinas have the third highest death rate death rate of 15.0 per 100,000.
In 2011, more than 12,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with invasive cervical cancer. Most of these women are younger than 55. Women suffering most severely from this disparity include African American women in the South, Latina women along the Texas-Mexico border, white women in Appalachia, American Indians of the Northern Plains, Vietnamese American women, and Alaska Natives.
Sexually transmitted HPV infection is believed to be responsible for 90 to 95 percent of all cervical cancers.
Momma’s Hip Hop Kitchen, Vol. 5: Be the Cure! will assist in introducing healthier alternatives to our families and communities. We believe that hip-hop is a healing instrument that can be used for mental, emotional, and physical wellness. We encourage you to become a b-girl, deejay, emcee or graffiti artist who will disseminate positive information and create a more holistic culture.

As one of the founders of Momma’s Hip Hop Kitchen , I am moved to tears at the thought that one little dream would turn into something so big and powerful. I have watched our audience grow from 500 people to 1,500 in 5 years. I have watched over 200 women perform with all of their love and might to bring healing to the audience, to their community and to the globe. I have worked with over 300 exceptional organizations and vendors like La Pena del Bronx, RDAC-BX, Mothers on the Move, Casa Atabex Ache and Guerrilla Republik. I have met new lifelong friends in the volunteers, the photographers, videographers, backstage managers, tshirt designers, muralists…..this list goes on. I have seen people come out from all over the world for this event from Denver to Germany, Chicago to Venezuela, Minneapolis to Mexico.
As an artist myself, I enjoy seeing other artist be a vessel! I am inspired by the “Artist Meet N’ Greet” that we host a few weeks before the event, so that the artists can know each other for the big show. No room for competition when our goal is to heal. What happens backstage is magic because the day of the show the women come in knowing each other and it’s all PURE LOVE and POWER!!!!
I have watched people of all kinds be in awe of amazing young artist like NeNe Ali Spokenwordpoet. I have seen people jolt as if they have been invoked with the spirit from Queen GodIs Ink and Akua Naru Olatunji. I have witnessed the crowd scream with pride as they watch the Legendary Ana Rokafella Garcia and her beautiful crew rock that stage and end in the dopest B-Girl stance. I have seen Latina mothers high-five each other at the end of La Bruja’s super poem with her daughter at her side. What I have seen in this lifetime through MHHK is an incredible women in hip hop social justice and self-respect/love movement.
I have grown way more than I could have ever imagined.
I just wanted to say that I don’t regret DREAMING. God has always met me where I need it most. MHHK Vol. 5: “BE THE CURE!” concert is not only a celebration of 5 years of community awareness and impeccable talent, but of souls who are willing to be the cure in the midst of the fire and the ridiculous brutality that we endure.
I wholeheartedly respect and honor families that are willing to be healers and be healed through HIP HOP, through art. I am infused with an undying commitment and dedication every year that I see an old face who brought a new friend or family member. I know that Kathleen Adams and I ( Lah Tere) believe that this platform was sent to us as a mission from our Creator. We are humbled by the support and passion of our international community. We are pleased to serve you the best Soup for the Hip Hop Soul! ♥
Last year’s theme was : “Let’s Get Active!” and so we are doing it by “Being the Cure!” through the arts. Join us!
I am very mercurial about what I purchase especially products I have to put in my mouth. Also, I truly am the loud mouth that sees something
and always says to anyone willing to pay attention, “I can make that at home”. Speaking of that, look forward to the ACOA Home Eco(nomics) Store opening in March 2012. Back to this spa for your mouth! This tooth powder is one of the best things I have purchased next to my first purchase of Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint soap in 1993.
So I smoked cigarettes for 5 years. I noticed that the bottom of my teeth (they are closer together) were getting quite stained. Also, I do not floss as often as I should….In steps Holistic Height’s Mouth Spa Tooth Powder. Do you know that feeling that you have after you get your teeth cleaned from the dentist? Well no dentist that I have went to (and I have been going on the regular since I was a child (my mom did not play when it came to our shoes and our teeth, lol) has been able to produce results like one (yeah 1) application of the tooth powder. I feel like a I have a brand new set of teeth and gums right now. No dentist visit ever made me feel like that.
This powder is child friendly as well. Both of my daughters love it. One of the ways that I use it is without water. I ether use it straight on the tooth brush and rinse when complete. Sometimes, I want a total spa experience I use it in conjunction with a natural fluoride free tooth paste. Either way it is ALWAYS a satisfying experience.
The reason I was prompted to write today is because two occasions this week I felt a scratchy throat coming on. I could feel the build up all in my sinus areas. When I wake up one of the first things I do is brush my teeth. I noticed that my throat felt immediately better after brushing with the tooth powder. Later in the evening I felt it again. I decided to brush again….Bammm! Scratchy throat done…Sinus irritation Done! I woke up this morning …my voice was hoarse though?. You can listen to me tonight on AC LIVE . I already brushed my teeth and my voice loosened up a bit. I am sippin on some tea right now and making sure I continue to only eat raw…but I can assure you if you tune in tonight the hoarseness will be gone!!!!

Finally! The tooth powder has officially made my AC HOME ESSENTIALS list also because it is economical. One jar lasts wayyyyyyy longer than your average toothpaste AND it is wayyyy better for you. All I am waiting for now is a commercial so I can advertise it on the Abundance Network. I love this stuff.

Yes yes she’s the best, you the best, yeah she’s fresh. rose gold on her wrist, amethyst on her neck. You impressed? She cares less. your whole style compressed in a box like the rest, on a shelf in fedex. Who is she? the seed, she’s the blood that u bleed, the amniotic fluid that the unborn will feed, she precede pen and paper she’s papyrus and the reed. she’s the earth, she is stars, She is first, watch her lead.She is space, She is dark,She is noah and the ark, She is heaven, She is light, She is stillness,She is flight,She’s the heights and the depth, and all the in between. She is good when she’s good, but a beast when she’s mean. Danger danger she’ll eat your rhymes up with a spoon danger danger she’ll beat ur rhymes up with her goons. she can settle beef under the darkest side the moon. But you betta make it quick cuz she’ll be outta here soon. Rraaaahh!
Mic check, lets connect, you on deck, yeah she’s set. Headphones on her dome, yellow beads on her neck. You gon wreck? She’s a vet. Since the days of KMT rock shows with her crook and her flail on her chest. She is 2 hydrogens plus a oxygen. Melanated so they calling her a afrikan. She is yaa asantewaa, queen champion, give her an enemy and she will battle em. who is she??? She’s the truth, She is 1 hundred proof, She is now, She is then, She is old, She is youth. She is joy, She is love, She is pain causing hurt, She is stone cold jewelry in a rakim verse. She’s mahogany, ladies first, run’s house, black cop. Rock and roll, reggaeton, r&b and hiphop. Djembe, beatbox, turntable, planet rock. Bambataa, jam master, monie love and sa-roc.
Press press, press record, you are serf, She is lord. She will slice up your lines with her personal sword. She is sharp like she’s mensa with groundbreaking scores, you stay mad cuz she tower and you falling short. She is life,She is death, She is all things between. She is most times invisible, but seldom unseen. She the queen, She is pauper. Mother, daughter. Air, ether, fire, water. Sorcerer, shaman, sekert, amen. Kali, lakhsmi, Vishnu, brahma. She’s a vessel, balanced level. Chaos, discord, heavy trouble. Single, double, wormhole, tunnel. All and nothing. Lightweight-crushing. Highest-lowest, teacher-poet. Greatest mc-think I’m bluffing?
