Some songs strike you from the get-go. Glued from the first few bars; this became my motivational anthem of the year. Recorded well over a year ago but unreleased until now, MeLo-X joins forces with Jesse Boykins III and Theophilus London on “She Is Forever”; a metaphorical celebration of black culture, packed with fierce quotables, emotive sentiments and passionate delivery over galactically epic production by MeLo, who also impresses with his own lyrical prowess on this number. We’ve been sitting quietly on this track for most of 2010 so it’s with immense pleasure that I can now exclusively make it available to you all for free download. I LOVE it. I hope you do too.

So I’m a day late and probably even a dollar short as the saying goes. Well, actually I am a year later (almost) and usually a few dollars short. But in my pocket where money used to be there is now hope. Sure… I guess the hope isn’t like money but it keeps my mind rich. A few people know my story; the close ones. I tell it often to people who are going through things to let them know that things will be okay because they have to be. Behind all of my nice pictures is a man shaken by the fears of failure with his back to the wall and his fist swinging. Some of you reading this will say… “What is he talking about?” Well what I am talking about is being “Lost In Translation” so to speak. Almost a year ago on November 18th, 2009 I was laid-off from a career. THIS LETTER IS A DIARY ENTRY A YEAR LATER. What was my job? It doesn’t matter at this point really. I became one of the stories I often saw on the news before it happen. The guy that has been in a job for years feeling secure and comes into work one day and it’s over. The moment? Man, It felt crazy. I had a little heads-up about it so I knew it was coming. But in a “Union” job you’d like to think “Naw, This can’t really happen right?” But it did. I still remember the day I returned home and I just stood staring at a corner in my bedroom, eyes welled up in tears. Damn, not again.
