Lauryn Hill -Stronger Than Pride(Live)

I won’t pretend that I intend to stop living
I won’t pretend I’m good at forgiving
But I can’t hate you
Though I have tried
Mmmm
I still really really love you
Love is stronger than pride
I still really really love you
Mmmm
I won’t pretend that I intend to stop living
I won’t pretend I’m good at forgiving
But I can’t hate you
Although I have tried
L-Boogie.....jpg
Mmmm
I still really really love you
Love is stronger than pride
I still really really love you
Mm mm mm mm mm
Sitting here wasting my time
Would be like
Waiting for the sun to rise
It’s all too clear things come and go
Sitting here
Sitting here waiting for you
Would be like waiting for winter
It’s gonna be cold
There may even
Be snow
I still really really love you
Love is stronger than pride
I still really really love you
Love is stronger
I still really love you
Love is stronger than pride

Hempress Sativa- Kushite Love

Sativa

I listen to a couple of different reggae artists. When I was searching for some music on Youtube I stumbled upon this beautiful  sista. This is a beautiful live performance. Her name is Hempress Sativa. I had never heard of her before. The title of the song immediately caught my attention for obvious reasons.lol  I knew I had to feature her on my blog.  I think this may become the new anthem for Kushite Kingdom!

A little  background on this talented woman.

Kerida Johnson known as Hempress Sativa was born to Rastafarian parents Doris-Ray Johnson and legendary Jamaican Selector /Musician Albert ‘Ilawi Malawi’ Johnson of the Jah Love Sound System. It was her exposure to music at home that sharpened her skills and has manifested today in her expressive writing and delivery.Hempress Sativa, who has been performing since the age of 13, with lyrics spiritedly influenced by her Rastafarian culture, as conveyed in her song “Judgement” in which she begins by chanting “No More Illusion, Rastafari is real …. Her music although generally rooted in traditional reggae rhythms, also at times, crosses genres and may reflect traces of Rhythm and Blues, African and even Hip-Hop influences as evident in the Anthem “Jah Have Mi Back”. Singles such as “Get High” and “Children of the Emperor” have been creating a buzz both locally and internationally, exemplifying her musical agility as a melodic singer and a lyrically skilled DJ. Sativa lists her musical favourites as Sade, Sister Carol and Ijahman Levi, to name few.She has worked with artists such as Micah Shemaiah, Sugarcane and the East village pharmacy, Bread (from Chalice) and producer Jahnoi Nunes. Dubbed “Hempress Sativa: Your Highness”, she intends on premiering her Ep in 2013, then the Album to be titled “UnconqueRebel Lioness” which is already near completion for its debut in the later part of said year.An artiste to definitely watch, after an electrifying performance at the recently held Revel Salute 2013 earlier this year-listen out for her latest single “Marching Outta Babylon” produced by J.O.E/ Flow factory and her feature in Backayard Magazine for the upcoming issue of 2013.Hempress Sativa is an extraordinary young talent, propelling Jamaican music into the future while strongly remaining rooted in a traditional foundation that makes her music timeless.
