Key Black History_Multi Media Players-1.gifI have a feeling this title will be a reoccurring one
because being a Multi Media Player is so much fun. So, let’s start with:

ANGELA BASSETT
She knows only to smash it!
Have you ever seen a show with her in it
and she didn’t win it?

BEYONCE is always about an intentional slay.
Learn the rules, and get in Formation if you want to play!

SHONDA RHIMES is a series network Dime.
Holding audiences captive is her M.O. shine.

QUI is WHO keeps
the Griot beat
and yields sublime rhymes
that chronicle our times.

OPRAH enhances the view inside of our homes
via the many positive morale shows on OWN.

She mastered adolescent success and transcended it to grown.
Kicking it with JADA PINKETT-SMITH is to listen strong.

She’s got a Podcast Show titled RED TABLE TALK.
She is a woman of will and she walks the walk.

Introducing Ms. SYLEENA JOHNSON – to those who don’t already know.
She’s new to me via  TV ONE’s SISTER CIRCLE show.

She is one of four hosts. Please tell me that you’ve seen it?
Once I tuned in, I realized just how much I mean it…

to support them.
Their union of love needs no alteration or hem.

On a recent episode I became a Syleena fan –
when I heard her new joint titled, WOMAN:

These are just a few skill capacity slayers
that I’m proud to list as Multi Media Players.

What about you?
What’s that thing that you do –
that you are into?

It’s because of you that each player get’s any play.
Big THANKS to you and your consumer ways.

Black History wouldn’t be the same without you,
I’m Qui
grateful and humble. This bow is for you.

Pat & Turn’er have nothing on Paula Patton

Talk about ‘walking a project through
Paula Patton is one of three Producers of TRAFFIK‘s truths.

Have you seen this relatively new 2018 film release?
I saw it on hump day and it is a beast!

It’s a Suspense/Horror piece based off of an ongoing, true scene.
It stars Paula and Omar Epps regarding a human trafficking ring.

Cali is the place where this story unfolded, resembling a romantic one,
but then certain hell rode in via Harleys & gin and killed all of the fun.

John and Brea were joined by Darrin and Mila for an impromptu date…
You’ve got to see what happened to Paula and the other three as the night grew late.

To add to my horror is the realization that this is happening in the United States.
Deon Taylor, the Writer/Director was inspired by headlines to create this screenplay.

traffik_paula-patton_omar-eppsDeon and his wife Roxanne are the other two producers of Traffik.
The film was budgeted at $4million and made $9Mil. That’s a reel hit!

Yes ma’am and yes sir! That is it!
Education and entertainment via a cinematic vent.

Please do not take my word for it – peep Paula’s Traffik
It’s riddled with edgy moments and eerie plot twists.

The title of this piece starts out introducing Pat & Turner.
If you aren’t familiar with the phrase, the aforementioned parallel will be a burner.

Pat & Turner are also known as your feet: ol’ right and ol’ left.
Paula did magnificent acting and producer-work on this tale.

With the statistics of human trafficking, I was impaled.
More than 60% are African American. We’re still for sale?

What the hell and why? If you’re stunned, then you are just like me.
Though the film laid out quite simply that it’s a million dollar industry.

This film kind of reminds me of GET OUT in the way that I was hanging on the edge – and for so long.
I recommend that you see Traffik with family and friends; its message and view is quite strong.

Pat & Turner are known for taking you from point A to point B
and Paula Patton not only walked this project through but she even acted in the piece.

Allow me to enjoy this sweet release. John Singleton and Ice Cube do it all of the time.
I just love when I get the opportunity to write about women of the same stock who are on their grind.

Women like Oprah and Queen Latifah, like Jada Pinkett-Smith and Vivica Fox.
That’s right! I’m doling out specific mentions because Black Girls Rock!

We can Write/Produce/Direct/Act, Pop & Lock! Now you know,
I’m Qui
Patting Turn’er and hoping you don’t overlook this film as a burner. Traffik is a dual show.

Entertaining + Educational

The most efficient way to go.

Springing Forward FUN

Alas! Alas, it’s finally SPRING BREAK:
14 days of fun for the adolescents sake.
Me on the give and her on the take.
She bakes cupcakes and I gain the weight.

Yep! It’s going down a lot like that.
I’m up working out – to battle the fat.

SPRING is at hand and I’m in Tha’ Zone.
At least on this Monday – I won’t be alone.

My 14 year old offspring is officially in tow.
To acquaint with the city, we’ll go to and fro.

We went to the Ostrich Festival Saturday & had a lot of fun.
Intel paid for most of our recreational sum.

We were there for 8 hours and nearly rode every ride.
We slept hard on Sunday (recharging our hides).

After waking up Sunday – we hit the road again
in search of the hood to schmooze with melanin.

We live in a suburb of Mayberry galore.
No Koreans to speak of, no beauty supply stores. lol!

In other words, I don’t live in the hood.
I’m reppin’ the suburbs and it’s all to the good.

So the kid and I will duly hit the streets
roaming in search of cool peeps and merchant meets.

Springing Forward FUN – the clocks time changed
around most of the world, but in A-Z: stayed the same.

Then I hear Jada Pinkett may drop her married name…
Will Smith and etux seek to exit the marriage game?
Dang!

I hope they can find a way to reconcile such.
The tabloids cry foul and speculate too much.

Tabloids hail: Tisha Campbell’s husbands is part of the reason
that Will and Jada are on the brink during this season.

Not necessarily fingering Duane Martin as being gay,
but at least point blame at him for Will yielding to “stray”.

Too much BOY TIME? Who the heck knows.
SPRING is at hand – may GOOD TIMES behold!

The President is the incumbent and poll numbers are crazy.
Campaigners vie for his job…the finish line looks hazy.

Me? I’m sipping jo’ listening to MORING JOE’s plight.
Me? I’m wondering what the heck is up with politic’ing WOMENS RIGHTS?

Me? I’m paying attention. I’m on the world news sum.
I’m Qui
Springing Forward GRIOT (part news, part support) and FUN.
