Beyoncé is coming for blood and degrees only accredited by Everest University on this duo track! Toot it and boot down below to hear Mrs. Carter curse like a sailor and speak on her childhood dookie braids in an H-town, chopped and screwed vernacular. You mad?
Yesss, Miguel premiered the video for my favorite song from his sophomore album Kaleidoscope Dream!
Watch below and get into the lyrics. Heavy shit.
“It’s like watching great photography in motion.”
Prayer, makeup primer, and piles of clothes was the scene before the start of the 2013 Miss Black & Gold Scholarship Pageant Sunday [2/10].

To some it’s considered trivial and amateur but I find real beauty in capturing a moment that would’ve never been seen or otherwise forgotten altogether.
This year, the Kappa Eta Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. asked me to photograph their annual scholarship pageant. Never missing an opportunity to expand my portfolio and learn more about the art form I fell in love with ages ago, I obliged. Though family, friends and the campus of The University of Memphis prepared themselves to see the essence of beauty offered by 10 young women I geared myself up to view all the pacing, practicing and preparation that went on backstage.
