As you all know I went ahead and did the big chop!!! Yes I cut my hair. My friends were surprised and to my surprise they loved it! I love my friends, but in this big decision their opinion didn’t matter because I was ready and comfortable enough in my own skin to go for it!

I only been going back natural hair for 3 months now and already I put in a sew-in (there is a reason for this).  It is a lot of maintenance, but I’m maintaining it. I just need a break for a while with school finals coming up and my current relocating, my hair is the last thing I wanted to worry about.

Vanie's Resume

The energy from her was so pure and genuine which reiterates her stage name. I had the pleasure of interviewing her and learning more about her journey in music. Her music is soulful and full of life and her sound is remarkable. Please listen to the relaxing and sensual music of Earthtone and read her exclusive interview with yours truly, Ms. Vanie.

D.A. the Future’s (of Hip Hop) like many artists, introduction to music began at home and in the church where music was the driving force for inspiration in his family’s life. It wasn’t long after he picked up a pen and started writing lyrics of his own. By his tenth birthday he began experimenting with recording and from that point on, he knew he was going to be a star. He would soon be reciting lyrics in front of audiences like a natural performer. Realizing his relationship with the entertainment industry was fate, his passion for music began to grow and he has been committed to his craft ever since.

Words from D.A. The Future:

“On a ordinary day you’ll more than likely catch me at Earl’s barbershop 359 broadway, Amityville, NY cutting hair playing chess and writing rhymes. By the end of the night in the studio or dumbin out in a bar with my homies and some fly females rolling blunts, or low planning on my next epic move.  All I want people to know is I am a MisFit 4 Life! Live Life To The Fullest”.
