EAGLE NEBULA

A progressive emcee who creates trends instead of bending to them Eagle Nebula possesses the power to energize the most weary soul and add color to the most dreary places. She has shared the stage with Dead Prez, Black Thought, Pharoah Monch, Bahamadia, Brand Nubian, Pete Rock, J-Live, Ursula Rucker and many more. All who have seen her live agree that there is something about her that is quite magical. It could be the cosmic headphones she wears, or one of her other ornate self made head pieces, but most likely, it is her spirit overflowing with joy that she feels compelled to share with hip hop and all humanity. In due time, her bright brand of optimism will have reached every corner of the world as she inspires everyone to GO COSMIC!!!!! Eagle Nebula’s album “Cosmic Headphones” is the second imprint on Georgia Anne Muldrow’s Epistriophik Peach Sound label and was released worldwide in October 2008. www.eaglenebulamusic.com

BLESS ROXWELL

The beautiful and talented Bless Roxwell was birthed by The Golden Age of Hip-Hop. Always reading and writing poetry & short stories, the music made an impression on her at an early age.
The 2005 self release of her first full-length project, "8.2-3.95", solidified that progression and garnered heavy interest and praise, as well as earning Ms. Roxwell a solid fanbase of support among the die-hard and hard to please hip hop fans. It also got the attention of Blackout Ink Records, which re-released it in 2006 and an alliance was born.  So, these days, you'll find Bless writing for her blog "RANDOM REVOLUTIONS" which spotlights her series, "She's So Fresh" Fridayz! where she profiles female MC's and women in Hip Hop and is also featured on Fiona Bloom of The Bloom Effect's "The Bloom Blog". She's also writing and recording her newest project, a free mixtape for her fans, "revolutions", in addition to rocking shows and promoting tracks from her third effort, "Bless Roxwell:evolutions", released in 2008. Production on "Bless Roxwell:evolutions" was again spearheaded by the one and only, beat-wizard Ayatollah, however the two tracks from newcomer MFutures have been well received by exploring a new sound and claiming new fans for Ms. Roxwell.

J.A.G. Music and Media Hosts the 2nd “She’s So Fresh” Showcase


J.A.G. Music and Media Hosts the 2nd “She’s So Fresh” Showcase

"She's So Fresh" Showcase Overview

There was a time when a woman in Hip Hop held a microphone and not only created music on par with the men, but were treated as equals. For reasons that will be debated for years to come, that has changed. In recent years, the presence of the woman in Hip Hop has been reduced to one of visual physicality and sensuality.
J.A.G. Music & Media, via the “She’s So Fresh” Showcases, is ensuring that the presence of women in Hip Hop reflects one of respect, honesty and strength by partnering with entities that share similar values and a desire to support Hip Hop and the Woman Hip Hop artist in particular.
Enter stage left: the “She’s So Fresh” Showcase
You may have checked out Bless Roxwell's "She's So Fresh" Fridayz which appears every Friday on The Bloom Blog as per the always wonderful Fiona Bloom of THE BLOOM EFFECT, where she profiles a different Woman in Hip Hop every Friday, from Woman MC's to DJ's to Filmmakers, Dancers and Writers! The positive response has been amazing and surprising, as the Hip Hop Community, lovers of Hip Hop, supporters of Women in the Arts and supporters of women in general have embraced the features and the idea of "She's So Fresh" overall.
Going one step further, the “She’s So Fresh” Showcase serves as a performance platform for women in Hip Hop and Urban Arts. Being a female Hip Hop Artist, Bless Roxwell is acutely aware of the necessity for venues and outlets for the Woman MC to showcase their skills. The “She’s So Fresh” Showcase is bringing the female voice to the front and center in Hip Hop while realigning, reinforcing and solidifying the strength, talent and genius of the female voice in Hip Hop music.
Infused with the heart of the art form of Hip Hop, the “She’s So Fresh” Showcase will feature an assortment of female artists from different backgrounds and experiences. Highlighting the strength and creativity of women in the Hip Hop and the Urban Arts community, it is an unprecedented event giving voice to the unheard, untapped market for female Hip Hop artists. Focusing mainly on the Woman MC, it is providing a unique opportunity for sponsors seeking to reach the young urban female market in major urban enclaves, starting with NYC.
The first “She’s So Fresh” Showcase took place on August 6, 2009 and was a huge success! Karma Lounge reached near capacity and everyone had an amazing time, with some describing it as "The best Hip Hop Show I've been to in a long time.." -Timothy Hopewell, Street Cypha Magazine! For this second installment of “She’s So Fresh” Showcase, we want your help to make it even FRESHER! We will again be bringing it to you from Karma Lounge NYC, which holds a capacity of 100 and boasts an easy to reach location, a wide assortment of tobacco for their beautiful Hookah pipes as well as a bar upstairs and a bar downstairs where the event will be held.

Be a part of Herstory and Witness the 2nd "She's So Fresh" Showcase

Kool Bob Love on CNN

This Friday - THE BLACK BOOK MASTER CLASS by PART ONE

Piecing Taught by Stylemaster Enrique “Part One” Torres & Jacob Kimvall
Part One started painting subway cars in the early Seventies and took part of the downtown gallery scene in the Eighties; and the goal of his master class is to create a deeper understanding of the black book tradition. The “undergraduate” students will develop their skills in, for example, laying out a page, formatting the book and using different marker techniques. They’ll achieve general knowledge of different markers, paper preservation, and last but not least get a feeling for the possibilities and complexity of the black book. Master class students will deepen their knowledge and skills with a true master of the arts.
