Prince influences New Artist


Although we lost one of our legendary performers, the artist known as Prince, his music and legacy will live on for generations to come.  Prince's music is timeless and so powerful that it has even inspired young musicians and even artists from other genres of music.... such as songwriter, producer, keyboardist, singer and rapper Mr. Boom Boom Bang.

In the winter of 2015 the artist, Mr. BBB released a single titled "Let's Make Love Like The 90s" and DJs, critics and taste-makers compared Mr. Boom Boom Bang's vocals on the chorus to a late 80s / early 90s Prince!  When asked, in several interviews Mr. Boom Boom Bang explained that he was indeed inspired by the vocals of Prince which influenced him to sing the hook of the song in the style of the late "Purple Rain" singer.  

Listen to the song for yourself at the link below and voice your opinions.  Does the young artist's singing on the chorus of "Let's Make Love Like The 90s" remind you of an early 90s Prince?  Check it out and weigh in.

Single Mother of 4 expresses what BLACKTOPIA means to Her

I'm a 41 year old single mother of 4 children. I come from a mixed 

background and grew up very differently. 

I'm from New York but live in NC now. It's a struggle having a career 

in the South. Being a woman is always hard but 

when you add being a minority to it, things can be a challenge. 

I appreciate Blacktopia and what it represents. It's gives people a 

place to express themselves whether it be good, bad or 

sad. It opens opportunity to hear what others have been 

through or are going through. People need to listen. Sometimes 

it's the smallest things that provide insight into our own lives.

I give back daily in my career and I try to help whenever 

I can in my own community to empower others to make the 

choice to take a chance on change. - Angelica Maas

The Benefits of Iaso Tea from

Detox Benefits of Iaso Tea
TLC Iaso Tea, herbal detox Iaso Tea is an all natural, 100% organic tea which includes a special blend of 9 safe and edible herbs: Holy Thistle, Persimmon leaves, Malva leaves, Marsh Mallow leaves, Blessed Thistle, Papaya, Ginger, Chamomile, and Myrrh.

This blend of ingredients allows gentle cleansing of the whole body with just 2 cups per day. Modern processing of foods and the pasteurization of dairy products destroys the enzymes that are necessary to our daily diet in order to support a healthy colon. With Iaso Tea, we now can get back to enjoying the perfect poop!
What Is Iaso Tea
It is like a white tea, a green tea, a weight loss tea, and a great-tasting herbal tea – all wrapped up in a lil’ black pouch.
For over 20 years, just 2 cups of Iaso Tea each day has successfully helped tens of thousands of people to cleanse their body of toxins and flush excess waste. Iaso Tea is not available in stores or advertised on TV or radio – it can only be bought through Total Life Changes’ Representatives. It is often referred to as a “Miracle Tea” because it addresses troublesome health issues that diminish the joy of daily living. It effectively cleanses your system and by comparison to other diet “fads” is surprisingly affordable.
Remarkable things happen when you drink 2 cups of Iaso Tea daily. It’s gentle, yet surprisingly powerful. It is used as a colon cleanse, a parasite cleanse, a Candida cleanse, a blood purifier and a whole body detoxifier. The formula works like a general health tonic and is a home remedy for many ailments listed below. Great with irregularity and constipation, even for small children, seniors and the physically challenged Improves overall digestion and absorption of nutrients Sheds unwanted pounds and burns fat Provides sustainable energy, allowing you to smile more – because life is short, enjoy it
Removes toxins from the entire digestive system
Restores mental clarity and improves memory caused by having too many toxins in the blood Provides relief from allergies and hay fever Cleans out pharmaceutical and/or recreational drug residues, including heavy metals Keeps the colon, kidneys, liver, and lungs healthy, clean and clear Helps detoxify chemicals created by parasites, fungi, yeast, and bad bacteria in the colon and digestive tract
Removes parasites such as worms and flukes from the colon…you may not think, but they do.

#WCW (WomanCrushWed / WedClassyWoman): Mieesha Hutchinson

          We are sure that this next Blacktopian #WCW (WomanCrushWed / WedClassyWoman) Award recipient has lots of hidden talents (aside from being an amazing cook), but unlike the other recipients today she's not in the spotlight, however Blacktopia would like to spotlight this small woman with such a big kind heart because although she may not be a singer, poet, designer, model, etc. etc., her role is just as important because without her.... the singers, models, poets, designers etc. wouldn't have an audience!  Mieesha Hutchinson is a dedicated follower and supporter of all the talented women featured in Blacktopia.

She's there to listen to the singers perform their music, watch and compliment the models on their photos and beauty, admire the designers work, read the poets and writers material and she gladly enjoys every moment of it!  

Mieesha may not be in the spotlight, but without dedicated viewers like her and may others, there wouldn't be anyone there to admire the talented individuals featured under the spotlight.  Well, Blacktopia would like to shine that light on one of the members that help keep Blacktopia alive just by admiring the work of the other Blacktopians, and we all would like to thank her for that!
