"Let the weapon of choice be your voice" - Nasir Jones

"Let the weapon of choice be your voice."- Nasir Jones





My favorite male artist Nas; is a graceful, humble, well rounded, down to earth and distinguished gentleman. The quote above is meaningful and something to live by. Words are truly powerful and being vocal can make a difference. Nas utilized his mind, platform and skill set to put words together and create a body of work, great music that is both inspiring and influential. Each and every album has something relative, unique and special for the listener. This blog is called HerStory but part of my story is sharing what inspires me, what motivates me upon my journey.There are lyrics, subject matters and quotes that Nas has addressed that truly touch my soul and are heartfelt. Nas covers topics of changes, challenges,growing up in the projects, finance, speaks on injustice, relationships and education. He made a song dedicated to his mom on the God's Son album. A song for his daughter titled "Me and You" and "Daughters" which is a heart to heart conversation. A private person, parent and a prophet is an open book through his music. He's a great artist and a great person who is for the people. There are other ventures Nas is involved in besides music. He moves quietly but he's definitely heard; his qualities, his character are admirable. I salute him on his journey and evolution. Thank you Mr. Nasir Jones.

On the evening of August 27,2015 I was attacked by my ex boyfriend. I was feeling overwhelmed at his house because of some information he mentioned to me. It made me feel uncomfortable. I wanted to leave. He got upset that I wanted to leave. I told him he didn't care. He slapped me in the face with the remote control.I cleaned up in the bathroom & he came and got me. We laid down back to back to each other. I was upset with him about a text message a girl sent to him. There was verbal abuse for sure. He leaned over and punched me in th
