Last night at the Silver Room for the official release of “Ladies Love Mixtapes The EP” was truly one of the best experiences of my career. After putting in so many nights of work and focus on this project it is fulfilling to see so may people come out to support it.
My sister Joelle Lamarre kicked off the festivities with her rendition of “Summer Time” from the George Gershwin production of Porgy and Bess. She totally brought the house down.
Jennifer Ligaya of Intellectual Radio held down her duties as the hostess impeccably. The discussion about relationships covered everything from the first date to the first “kiss”. She also did a piece called “Curiosity Killed The Cat”…lets just say the room was STEAMING!!!…lol
Simple Beauty Naturals provided well needed spa treatments and provided some amazing gift bags to a few guests who were able to answer some tough questions.
Nicole Malcolm the amazing artist provided her flair with some live art.

As we played the EP I was surveying the room checking for responses and I loved what I saw. “I Like It” and “Take Our Time” seemed to get the best responses. My supporters let me know how much they loved the project.
K Love The Poet being her usual amazing self.

I am so very grateful for the success of this event. I want to give a heartfelt thanks to everyone who was involved. A Special shout goes out to Eric Williams the owner of The Silver Room who opens up his doors for artist throughout the city. We truly appreciate him.
If you were there I would love to know what you thought about it. Would you attend another “Love Sessions”? Let me know in the comments and please share.
Kerry Washington pulled a Shug Avery this week “She’s Married Now!” My plans were to deliver some information regarding another character…but uhhhh…thats not gonna happen.
Congratulations Kerry Washington – Asomugha. 🙂
Kerry Washington is an amazing actress and has appeared in various movies throughout the years. Her portrayal of BroomHilda Von Schaft in the controversial Quentin Tarrentino film “Django” adds to her resume of great work. Her performance as Nikki Tru in the Chris Rock film “I Think I Love My Wife” is my favorite. She was a powerful, seductive and sultry woman trying her best to get Chris Rock’s character to cheat on his wife. Without giving away any spoilers lets just say that Chris Rock was having a difficult time staying faithful. Her power of persuasion rivals only that of Olivia Pope.
Kerry’s portrayal of Olivia Pope is sexy, confident and vulnerable. Not to mention the fact that SHE IS SO FINE!!! DANG!…….Ok… let me get back on track…The moments when she introspective and vulnerable are the times when I understand the depth of Olivia. This powerful woman who has the ability to wreak havoc on the most powerful government in the world and has everything that a person could possibly want still desires one thing. She wants to be loved. I understand that. I can relate to that. This is probably why the affair she is having with Fitz touches the fans so deeply. So many are in search of love with such a passion that they will overlook immoral and unethical behavior to have love. No judgements. 🙂
Some of Kerry’s best moments are when she delivers her range of the emotion with just one look.
When we last saw Olivia she officially kicked Fitz to the curb (Yeah Right) and he went and laid his head on Mellie’s lap asking for forgiveness.. (Whatever)…lol. Im sure these two will find themselves in some computer room somewhere in the White House again. Maybe they’ll get really creative and pledge their love on the White House lawn. Whatever happens she is going to have to answer A LOT of questions. The cameras are on her this time and the media will be focused. I expect Olivia to be her own client for the bulk of next season. And who knows, maybe Kerry being a married woman will affect her portrayal of Oliva….hmmmmmm.
So…do you think married life will change Olivia? What do you like about Olivia? What do you hate? I would love to know. Leave a comment, like the blog and share. 🙂
I think sometimes you are scared to be who you are. I think you are focused on issues that have no bearing on your life. I think you do not have enough confidence in yourself. I think you forget that we have a limited time on this earth. I think you worry too much. I think you get offended to easily.
I think you forget how powerful we are.
I think you are AMAZING!! I think you add value to to the lives of those who are around you. I think your influence reaches further than you think. I think you are wonderful. I think you are wealthy. I think you are blessed. I think Gods connection gets stronger everyday. I think you are talented. I think you are a genius. I think you are LOVE! I think you are AWESOME!!!
Traditionally in Haitian Households Good Friday is celebrated by a feast of different fish and salads….I remember when I was young I asked my friend Nate Hampton if he new what Good Friday was…he looked at me and said “The Good of the Friday” HA!! I always thought that was hilarious. Now I know it’s true.
2013 has been exciting year for me. Amazing projects are on the horizon. Lets go down the list.
1. Ladies Love Mixtapes Ep
This will be released the spring of 2013. This project was inspired by relationships. This seven track..(at the moment) Ep is a loose story about a relationship between a man and a woman. This is a project that focuses on the start of a relationship to the start of a relationship. My intention was to create a project that had some type of loose narrative that would cater to women’s sensibilities and be more inclusive with respect to rap music and Hip Hop as a culture.
The bulk of the production is done Tye Hill. Eddy Lamarre and Crankz from Poland also provide solid production.
The lead single “Take Our Time” produced by Tye Hill is a smooth laid back track that is an introduction to the project and sets the stage for the rest of the Ep. Feel Free to Listen/Buy the track below.
2. The Guild A Hate You Can Trust
I collaborated with some of Chicagos best talent to create a project called “The Guild. A Hate You Can Trust” This project is the brainchild of Marshall “Mars” Lindsey and Dj Kwest On and is inspired by the Cartoon Network Animated Series on Adult Swim called The Venture Brothers.
This project enlists the talents of Nicole Sampshon (singer), Sean Ace (producer/rapper) and Cya (rapper) who form Brown Audio, Jus cuZ (producer/rapper), and Vision 77 (producer) and yours truly Precise… Check the Promo Below
3. The Anti Skinny Jeans Lp
I am super excited about this project. The Anti Skinny Jeans Lp is the brainchild of rapper/producer Rkitech from Long Island Ny. He has produced for notable artists such as Mary J Blige, EPMD, Redman and a host of others.
This project features the likes of Keith Murray, Buckshot, Hakim from Channel Live, Prime Meridian and ME…Precise. The lead single called “Back to the Basics” Ft Rkitech and Hakim fro Channel Live provides some good insight as to what you should expect. Check the video below.

Welcome to the fifth topic in this series entitled What Ladies Love.
Last week I asked “When is the right time to introduce your mate to your children? How do you do it?” I can tell by many of the responses and the comments that I read that our children are paramount in our lives. We should take precaution when involving them in our relationships. Many of the choices we make for our own lives affect our children deeply. Thank you to all of you who took the time to answer last weeks question.
This weeks question comes from my cousin Cool V. I think thats awesome because the ladies have been asking fo some input by the gentleman. So…Here it is!!…..
What is your idea of a soulmate? How do you know when you have found them? Have you found your soulmate?
Cool V has had the privilege of finding his soulmate. WAY TO GO CUZ!!! Check out a few comments below. Leave comments. Im curious to read what you think. 🙂
Ebonie said: “To me I think people misconstrue what a real soul mate is. To me it’s not a perfect person it’s not the perfect man is the person who takes all of your fault and looks at you for who you are and said I still want to be with that person I can be with that person forever no matter what if they’d never changed from this day forth that is the person for me. And vise versa. Everything in your being attractions to this person no matter if they make you mad one day piss you off to next that person is forever connected to you by some type of force and if it’s not something that you can let go. You will fight to the ends of the earth to stay with this person. And that person will also fight for you. What you lack they make up and vise versa. That’s my take on it.”
Danitasaid: “My idea of a soul mate is someone who you honestly are not seeking out but someone who lives you for who you are. The love that is shared may be unknown to the woman but as it says in the Bible…a man is suppose to seek his wife and not the other way around. You have to be patient and wait. You can not rush or try to make someone your soul mate. It’s natural!!”
Charlene said: “Good question. I believe you will just know. It is something I can’t put into words. I believe in soul mates only because I have seen people so connected to each other they must be soul mates.”
Gwen said: “A soulmate is someone who is totally connected to you mentally physically and emotionally. You know you have found that person when they instinctively know what and how you are feeling as do you there is an ease of communication..and yes i have found mine.”
Carmella said: “Our souls must be connected to God in order to be directed to our Soulmate. You must both put God first in order to Love each other! Remember God Is Love! I knew I found mine when his love for God was as deep as mine! I also believe the eyes are the key to our souls and the truth. No matter our differences our flaws we will stay strong as long as our foundation (Which is God) can not be destroyed. What God put together may no man tear under! So stop looking for perfect love in imperfect people and let him lead the way!”
I love that these ladies are being so honest. As for me, at one time I thought that I did find my soulmate.However I was mistaken. I still believe they do exist. Sometimes I think I forced the issue as if I wanted this person to be ment for me so bad that they had to be my soulmate. I must admit I am kind of a romantic at heart. What I think is important is that the idea of the search has to be eliminated. I feel as though we are always connected to the people that we should be connected to. The moment that we come across the one who is the mate for our souls, our soul will tell us. I get excited just thinking about that moment. Anyway…I want to read what you you have to say about the subject. Leave a comment below. –Precise

Welcome to the third topic in this series entitled What Ladies Love.
The last few weeks have been eye opening. Once you are blessed to meet the person who can meet a majority of what you seek and can add joy to your life you must cherish them. I know Im not the only one who has been on this “search” for a while. I have been in a few relationships and we have parted ways for a number of reasons. Most times we separate is because of something that either of us could not tolerate. A #DealBreaker.
What do you consider a deal breaker in a relationship?
Im anticipating some great answers to this…check out a few below. Leave comments. Im curious to read what you think? 🙂
Nakisha said: “The deal breaker for me is allowing me to be with u and u never really wanted to be with me, and lying not giving me a choice.
Carita said: “No comprise and not wanting children.”
Shaquira said: “This could be a good or bad thing but truthfully, a deal breaker would be the fact that the attraction is not there anymore, and this maybe selfish but maybe the relationship is just not what you want anymore.”
The Pr Guru said: “I won’t date man with kids, who smokes,gambles and drinks excessively! My type of man is a manly man sort of speak! Lol he takes charge and wears the pants and goes beyond to make me feel loved and safe!”
I know there are going to be some interesting answers to this. Comment…click the area right beneath the blog that says “reply” or the speech bubble at the top of this blog entry. -Precise
