SheeRo

In a world where men are consistently idolized, Id like to use my platform not to idolize woman

but to appreciate their everyday

fight to do something more than what the norm expects of them.

They say its a mans world

But it would be nothing without a WOMAN’s touch.

To put Woman on a pedestal highly, back where they belong

Is for nations to never suffer again!

Today my SheeRo is

Ty Black, also known as Queen Blizzy age 27 from East New York, Brooklyn,

known for her Hip Hop, activism, and community work.

Here are a few questions i asked to help get to know her better.

BWB

How do you use what you do to create social justice awareness to your people?

QB

By placing social topics in my music, activism, and community work. Spreading awareness, knowledge,

and solutions for social justice in all avenues I embark on.

BWB

What does culture mean to you ?

QB

Culture means a way a life. A bond with communities and race.

BWB

How do you feel about the current white washing of black and brown communities? And what

message/advice do you have for white people moving in?

QB

I feel, just like damn near everything else in America, gentrification is a way to keep black and brown people

oppressed. I also feel that after years of this, we should be tired of the cycle, and fighting harder

then ever against it. I don’t have any advice for white people moving in. I do have advice for the

black and brown people being pushed out. Unite and build.

Understand that all this oppression is coming from the same source. The people united can never be defeated.

BWB

What are some of the projects you a are currently working on?

QB

June 17th makes 11 months since the murder of Eric Garner. Im assisting Jewel, the mother of

Eric’s 1 year old daughter with an action. This action is powerful and creative. People will be organizing

together to spell out Eric Garner on the ground with  their bodies. This is something I encourage everyone to partake in.

For more info like the page facebook.com/LegacyGarner.

Another program I’m working on is “Warrior Queen Wednesdays”. Stay updated on facebook.com/TyBlizzyBlack

BWB

As powerful as your voice is, is their anything you fear?

QB

What I ultimately fear is staying still. Not growing and progressing. Life is constant and about evolution.

If you aren’t growing, your dead.

BWB

What does black and brown success mean to you ? How does it look ?

QB

Black and brown success is black and brown people being Creatively great and powerful. No oppression, and no

boundaries of fear. Peace and unity among one another.

Corrupted Minds

Ariel age 15 Bushwick Native

My life in motion pictures so you know how I was raised/
Worked hard to be where I’m at so you probably amazed.
How hard I worked and the stress having to get here/
Yeah that was ignorant but still what does it matter?/
When you seen friends leaking away like blood splattered
My melon leaking knowledge to educate these fruits/
Know my history before you realize bumps in the produce.
Section where I’m from, a place where lives get taken/
But when I’m gone my spirit always reawakens.
And I reincarnate to build another mindset/
And 26 bodies as much as the alphabet.
But really I’m about making the music and show my movements/
Of how much I changed matured so you can see my improvements.
Please choose him, the pokémon’s you never noticed/
And find better drum kits than the flying lotus.

“What I want in the Future”

When I grow up I only wanna have 2 kids
One son and one daughter thats 2 bibs
One pink the other one is a blue bib
No twins so ima be getting 2 cribs
But this is how i want it
exactly in this order
First son and then comes my little daughter
Cause if her mother and own father is not there
God for bid, her big brother be right there
Nightmares is something that THEY will not have…
Cause they got mom
and they got dad
And as a real man ima be there for them
Ima tell them daddy is right here for them
Take care them and give them what I never had
Starting off with a dad
that wont leave them sad
The only time that im leaving is to get money
Cause I ain’t gonna be having my kids dress bummy
THEY always gonna be having food in and out the tummy
And that’s real talk
ain’t nothing funny
As a kid I was going through alot of shit
But my kids ain’t going through what they father did
And that’s word to my mother and my lil sis.

Ro lives in Brownsville, Brooklyn but also spends a lot of time in Bushwick.  This kids way of releasing words is completely amazing.
