I ask that you all to join me in a round of applause for Ms. Shellbe Raw for her recent profile, "RAW NERVE" in the Baltimore City Paper. Shellbe, now folk are gonna ALWAYS expect you to be on top of your game. Im sure you'll be able to handle it tho!
I think you touched upon some really great issues and really expressed the heartfelt sentiments of many up and coming performers. I applaud you for being so open and fourthcoming - the truth will always set you free. Word of advice: get ready for fan mail.....& some may not be the kind you want...LOL! With the ghood always comes a lil bad. My city paper picture/article has netted me a whole slew of NEW male admirers..... Be careful, girl!!! In fact, one coudn't contain his "genuine love and affection" for me any longer ...so he wrote me a letter before he got out of prison.....droppin quotes from the article ...actin like he knew me from back in the day. I kept that letter in case I ever pop up missing....he goes up for parole in November .
All the seeds you planted are starting to root....doesn't it feel nice to see the little sprouts coming up out the ground. Buuuut don't make the mistake of just sitting in your garden and smelling the roses...be proactive [with an "e"... not the bump cream]....& periodically prune for weeds ....they will stiffle your growth.
On a serious note....Today is a glorious day.....ride the wave, but don't let it consume you....you need your strength. It don't get easier from this point....it gets harder....or in your case....RAW-ER...LOL!
For those of that want to see why the call her "pretty, but gritty"......I have an idea:
