what would you guys considered as “gifted“? what is your criteria for someone who is gifted?

I know this may sound like an odd question to ask, but I ask this question out of genuine curiosity as I am sure that everyone may have their own interpretation/ definition of how they define someone to be gifted or even someone who simply has a “gift”.  We, or especially in my experience I see a lot of these terms such as “gifted” or “talented” to be thrown around in the public especially when it comes to certain abilities that are subjective like the arts/ music. But I would like to put this up for discussion and just to see it from others’ perspective. Hopefully this post may also aid you in any questions you might happen to have on this subject as well. To make it simple, what is your own personal telltale signs of someone who may have a “gift”.

Comment below, can’t wait to hear ya’ll responses ~

This song puts me in a different space, the beat, Nao’s vocals, the message, everything.
Just recently discovered her, and I love her style as an artist. It definitely strikes me as Neo-soul/ Funk, I would love to create something similar to her style of music. I would say this style of song would resonate more to the younger generations, but also deviates from the typical pop songs we hear on the radio today. It’s new and refreshing.

Definitely one to keep in the playlist when cruising down PCH in the middle of night, or simply when you’re chillin the room lookin’ for some jams to unwind to.

You will definitely be seeing more of her on this page.

Here’s her single:

Lo,

I know I’m a bit late, but happy belated birthday to the King, Notorious B.I.G. ♕

Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York originally known as Christopher George Latore Wallace, Biggie became one of the faces of the hip hop culture. His craft as a rapper slowly became iconic in the game and he gained the respect of many in the community reaching nationwide commercial success. Biggie’s has carved a path for aspiring artists to never stop believing in oneself, even in the face of rejection and doubt. Confidence comes from within. If one doesn’t believe in himself or herself, then who will? Notorious B.I.G. is continually celebrated even in today’s music culture and will continued to be missed.

R.I.P. to one of the greats.

“Stay far from timid only make moves when your hearts in it and live the phrase skys the limit.” – Notorious B.I.G.

♪ You know very well
Who you are
Don’t let ’em hold you down
Reach for the stars
You had a goal
But not that many
‘Cause you’re the only one
I’ll give you good and plenty ♪

Hi guys,

So as you may have noticed, I have been including affiliate links at the very bottom of my posts on new& old songs I have discovered or simply thought was worthy enough of sharing with ya’ll. At this point, ya’ll know how passionate I feel about good music and how much adamant I am about keeping it alive through the medium of this blog. And that was my intention when I created this music blog for ya’ll. Though this seems far-fetched, I would love to make blogging my full-time job. While others may not understand why I would love to do so, I know for me, this blog is a way to connect with ya’ll and finding my happy place in doing so (selfishly so I suppose). I never thought I had the ability to monetize this hobby of mine, but as I found that it brings me joy to invest in this little baby blog of mine and that it somewhat brings my followers satisfaction (or at least I hope so) the thought of it became feasible to me— with plenty of time, energy, and dedication of course. Anyway, this is the part where I ask ya’ll  for your support and if you could purchase from the amazon links that I include in my posts if and only if you enjoy the songs I post about! (Sorry I had to!) However, it’s only if you like the songs and have the desire to purchase to them. It wouldn’t mean as much if you don’t enjoy the songs. The songs are downloaded as MP3 files which saves in the music library on your computer. The songs run from any from $1-3. I Again, thank you so much for your support this far. Your support keeps me going and delivering the best content for you guys. And as always, I have more news to share with ya’ll very soon. Stay tuned.

much love, much peace.

Lo.

Yet another song with great melody and message.
In the video, it appears that he addresses the social injustices
that we see happening with the law in relation to society today.
Word means nothing with no action.
Legend will always have my heart.

♪ I can’t sit and hope, I
Can’t just sit and pray, that
I can find a love, when
All I see is pain
Falling to my knees
And though I do believe
I can’t just preach, baby, preach
Whoa, oh
I can’t just preach, baby, preach ♪

Song Title: Preach
Artist: John Legend 
Release Date: February 15,2019
Record Label: N/A

Hi guys,

As I promised ya’ll, I have a new piece I just cooked up. I have yet to record it, but just jotting thoughts and ideas down was a huge step for me. And one I have been looking forward to sharing with ya’ll. Though not huge, it definitely helped to get my creative juices flowing again. This particular piece is a message for those heads are always above the clouds, but their feet always grounded. Life can be full of distractions when one isn’t focused on their goals and ambitions. And life is short one could potentially get carried away and before they know it, the void that they try to fill with trivial things is still very much there. For me at least this was my case, I can’t speak for everybody. Music for me truly helps to fill some of that void. This is for those who live everyday fighting for their dreams, keeping that fire alive and believing in themselves to make it happen.

♪ sittin’ here, watchin’ the sun go down
went through your phone, saw shit I shouldn’t have found
listen, I know it’s all a game and
I ain’t about to lose
I’m only getting started 
we both know I ain’t no fool

tell me what I want to hear
got any hope, any dreams, your fears
none of that crap that don’t mean a thing
like that superficial shit that only end in a fling

look can’t let nobody fuck with my ways
for me, there’s so much to lose so much in stake
I know I ain’t no accident
I was born with a purpose
something the anxiety over take me
then I just gotta wake up & focus

this music thing suppose to be a reminder
I was born for something great
I don’t listen to the doubt
never paid attention to the hate

I pay respect to the legends— the cream of the crop
gotta stay winning, gotta make it to the top
wherever I go, I leave my mark
bout to show them the light.. gotta free ’em from the dark

Music frees me, & that’s all I know.
Thanks for reading ya’ll.

Lo.
