After creating art work for 20 years under the moniker, CRAOLA, the artist readies his latest exhibition at the Merry Karnowsky Gallery entitled "Stop Haunting Me." Recently, we caught up with CRAOLA as part of our ongoing Artist Driven series to explore what brought him to the art world in the first place and the various experiences that have helped him during his diverse career.
From Teck & #WindyCityWednesdays This past Saturday March the 23rd I met up with Asend in Chicago's South Loop to capture him painting his most recent work of art. It was a cold windy day which made it difficult to work (for both of us) but we got it done. Please take the time to share, we appreciate your support!

Sheila V. and I came up with a intro to a performance set, while doing shows. It featured an acapella to an original song she wrote called "I Cry Tonight". We had no beat that fit it at the time, so decided to have me, cut transition N.O.R.E. - Baby Girl (Instrumental) after acapella, then Sheila V. would spit the verse she wrote. I would stop the Instrumental and she would go back to the acapella. We decided to make a video out of it so you can get a idea, the 2 part of the acapella I decided to leave out because I want feedback first. Let me know what you think, this will be up for a week or shorter...I edited it, first time and used a free program to do so, I have Adobe Premier but I don't think my computer is ready for that, to much music on the DJ tip...Anyhow, enjoy, hate, whatever...#Peace #BHZLife

Sometimes you feel that by saying "YES" you are opening your heart but what you are really doing is binding yourself, unable to move... Today I said "NO" to someone I love and much to my surprise, the effect, on me was liberating, empowering and self-freeing...so today I would like to invite you to SAY NO as an act of self-love...I use to think that leading a life of love meant being a "yes person" but I have now learned that love starts with compassion and compassion starts with honesty. And in all honesty, saying No to others is sometimes the only way to saying yes to you... If I think back on all the "yes" I said in my life, I realize that many were not a act of love. Quite the opposite, they stemmed from my fear of rejection, my eagerness to project a positive self-image to others, a desire to be accepted, an anxiety that comes from feeling intimidated by another...and those "yes" moments took me further away from my self-worth. Saying "no" from a place of love and selflessness is the hardest lesson of them all. The very concept is paradoxical because "no" is always equated with being selfish. But hold on a minute! I asked myself today "if I say no, I am being selfish towards WHO?" And the answer is "selfish towards ME... So think about all the things you said and will say "yes" to, and give yourself permission to change some of those to a NO! NO to high-maintenance friendships that drain you, NO to allowing another to abuse your kindness. No to being taken for granted. No to letting someone intimidate you into saying yes when in your heart you just want to say no. No to feeling guilty. No to self pity. No to being a people pleaser. No to putting yourself down. No to thinking you are not enough. SAY YES TO YOU! Set yourself boundaries and know that LOVE is more POWERFUL when it is HONEST. #DM #ShonRoka #BHZLife #AllIGot #Heart #Love #REAL #OneLife #FH #AboutThatLife

PHENOM speaks nostalgically about his experiences as a youth and the experiences of those he observed "Growing Up". Visually Aaron Perkins, Jr captures that nostalgic value as PHENOM sits on a park bench beside his real-life son "Ju-Ju", telling the stories of his past as his son symbolically lives out similar experiences in his youth. "Growing Up" "Kids With Guns" is visual commentary of the present day black on black youth violence that is plaguing Chicago minority communities and the nation abroad. Past and present; PHENOM's lyrics are just as relevant in his youth that his raps about, as they are in his son's youth! Directed and Edited by Aaron Perkins Jr @apjfilms http://www.apjfilms.com Mp3 Link: hulkshare.com/t8phgyvr8c4b Produced by Sean O From PHENOM's critically acclaimed Street Album "A Closed Mouf Dont Get Fed" http://tweetmymixtape.com/241dww @PHENOM18 @PROJECTBORN @ELITEMIND

Detroit Hip Hop producer Lord Jessiah (Black 7 Productions) has been hard at work developing the brand of Black 7 Productions along with Sun Tzu Cadre crafting his unique blend of soulful beats with hard core socially conscious hip-hop. Coming full throttle with the premier single, "Blitzkrieg", from his forthcoming solo release, G.O.D.. Having initially establishing himself within the production team of the Michigan based group and Wu-Affiliates Dezert Eez, Lord Jessiah is now poised to release his first full length studio album entitled Grounds Of Detroit (G.O.D.) March 2013. The "Grounds Of Detroit" (G.O.D.) album presents a collage of their hometown (Detroit) which is illustrated through rugged beats and aggressive lyrics. Lord Jessiah boldly warns that this project is the opposite of current contemporary hip-hop that has taken over the airwaves, and promises to deliver the cutting edge hard core fundamental hip-hop that has been missing for over a decade.

This song definitely holds a mirror up to society and shows the emotional/ mental perception of the current generation (ladies and gentlemen, alike). If only people could see the positive message in the lyrics and look at them from a symbolic/metaphorical point of view, instead of literal. #Wale #Lyricism #SheenaKimbrew

"Nobody is perfect until you fall in love with them." Think about how many people in your life now, that it took a while to really get acquainted to and love. We may not have many people like this in our lives, and we may have a lot of people like this in our lives, depending on who we are. The fact is simple, these special people are all almost perfect to us. Which also points to the fact that finding love isn't about finding someone who fits a unique list that you feel will qualify a person to fall in love with, but instead, finding love is about being able to love someone perfectly despite however many imperfections they have in life, and despite how many preferences that you always thought you needed to qualify a person as your mate. In no way am I stressing that we should settle for someone who we know truly doesn't deserve our love, but I am saying that many times we get a picture of who we want in a lover, and choose to look past many people because we don't care about what kind of heart they have if they dont look the part. #BHZLife #ThoughtsOfKnowledge #MovingForward #Happiness #Cherish #TheMoments #CherishLife #SheilaV #ShonRoka #Love

My girl and I have a funny relationship, we always laugh at things even on a sexual level. I remember her sending me this "Baby..."I'm wild about that thing!" LOL... You know this can boost any mans ego, but it just really made me pay attention to her humor and sense of musical interest. She is one of my favorite people in the world, she will always be someone that helped me LOVE again and inspired me to be a better man. - Shon Roka Bessie Smith (jul 9,1892 or apr.15,1894 - sep.26,1937) was Americas most popular female blues singer of the 1920s and '30s. Smith is often regarded as one of the greatest singers of her era, and along with Louis Armstrong, a major influence on subsequent jazz vocalists. As a way of earning money for their impoverished household, Smith and her brother Andrew began performing on the streets of Chattanooga as a duo, she singing and dancing, he accompanying on guitar; their preferred location was in front of the White Elephant Saloon at Thirteenth and Elm streets in the heart of the city's African-American community. In 1904, her oldest brother, Clarence, covertly left home by joining a small traveling troupe owned by Moses Stokes. "If Bessie had been old enough, she would have gone with him," said Clarence's widow, Maud. "That's why he left without telling her, but Clarence told me she was ready, even then. Of course, she was only a child." In 1912, Clarence returned to Chattanooga with the Stokes troupe and arranged for its managers, Lonnie and Cora Fisher, to give her an audition. She was hired as a dancer rather than a singer, because the company also included Ma Rainey. By the early 1920s, Smith had starred with Sidney Bechet in How Come?, a musical that made its way to Broadway, and spent several years working out of Atlanta, Georgia's 81 Theater, performing in black theaters along the East Coast. Following a run-in with the producer of How Come?, she was replaced by Alberta Hunter and returned to Philadelphia, where she had taken up residence. There, she met and fell in love with Jack Gee, a security guard whom she married on June 7, 1923, just as her first recordings were being released by Columbia Records. The marriage was a stormy one, with infidelity on both sides. During the marriage, Smith became the biggest headliner on the black Theater Owners Booking Association ( T.O.B.A.) circuit, running a show that sometimes featured as many as 40 troupers and made her the highest-paid black entertainer of her day. Gee was impressed by the money, but never adjusted to show business life, and especially not Smith's bisexuality. In 1929, when Smith learned of Gee's affair with another performer, Gertrude Saunders, she ended the marriage, but never sought a legal divorce. Smith eventually found a common-law husband in an old friend, Richard Morgan, who was Lionel Hampton's uncle and the antithesis of her husband. She stayed with him until her death.

Just paying some respect. If you don't know about this guy, it is what it is. BAD BOY BILL TOUR Behind The Decks (A3TV 2006). A special full length documentary behind the scenes on tour with Bad Boy Bill. A 5th & Ocean Production. Hard-house DJ Bad Boy Bill was born and raised in Chicago, and began mixing records at the age of 14. An avid fan of Chicago radio station WBMX's Hot Mix Five mixing team, Bill landed his big break when none other than Farley "Jackmaster" Funk gave him his first broadcast gig; he went on to emerge as one of the hottest turntablists on the Windy City scene, and in 1988 took top honors in the Midwest division of DMC's Battle DJ competition. Bad Boy Bill went on to spin records throughout the world, even maintaining a long-term DJ residency in Germany in addition to hosting "Street Mix," a top-rated weekly radio mix show on Chicago's WBBM. He also founded his own label, International House Records, and through its Mix Connection Multimedia Inc. subdivision issued a series of mix tapes, the ongoing Bangin the Box series. Utilizing up to fifty records -- a reflection of his hip-hop background -- where most DJs would use only ten, Bad Boy Bill gained a great reputation for playing fast and loose with the mix, rarely pausing to rest on his laurels. Along with the Bangin the Box series, he's issued several volumes in a four-turntable battle series (with Richard "Humpty" Vission) titled The House Connection. In May of 2000 the bangin' series continued with the release of Bangin in London. He is an investor in Beatport.com along with Jonas Tempel, Eloy Lopez, Richie Hawtin and John Acquaviva. He also runs Ménage Music. http://www.badboybill.com http://www.behindthedecks.com http://www.myspace.com/Djbadboybill
