Video: Kay Cola – “Royal”

With the release of the official visuals for “Royal,” Kay Cola responds to the tragic loss of lives at the hands of police brutality. The Lucid Dream Queen proclaims, “We will never run from the fight,” conveying the message that royalty is not about monetary status, but a mind state of spreading truth, wisdom, love, and light.

Domangue ft. Lil Flip – Hell Or High Water

Domangue seemingly raises the stakes with his latest venture, “Hell or High Water” featuring fellow Texan Lil Flip. Once again, Domangue shows us that he’s not one to be trifled with on this intoxicating new single laced with smooth melodic rhyme schemes & colorful trap-style percussion. With the freestyle king in rare form & Domangue on the rise, the collaboration is further proof that the torch has been passed. Bottom line: “Hell or High Water” is all thriller – no filler. Enjoy.

The July IPSY Summer Lovin Glam Bags have some pretty amazing goodies inside. This subscription allows you to try products that you may have otherwise not purchased.  I find that it’s sometimes good to change up your beauty products, just to explore and see if there are other products that work in a different way to give you a different result. Any who, let’s see what in this bag!

I was totally happy with the bag itself. The colors are so vivid and bright and they just SCREAM summer to me. The bag is not cheap (which was a surprise) it is made of durable material (including the zipper). This was a BIG PLUS for me because, I love collecting beauty/makeup bags. (You can never have enough of them).ipsy, glam bag, ipsy summer lovin, summer loving glam bag

  1.  Be A Bombshell Lip Balm – Ruby- This lip balm retails for $14. It’s very hydrating and leave a tint of color to your lips. Perfect for teenagers and adults who don’t want a lot of color to their lips.

  2.  OFRA Eyeshadow/Highlighter – Bliss – Retails for $15. This eyeshadow/highlighter is extremely pigmented and suitable for most skin tones. It is formulated for sensitive skin. It can be applied with a wet or dry brush for a shimmery finish.

  3.  Tarte Bronzer – Park Ave. Princess– Retails for $30. This is a highly pigmented, yellow gold, bronzing powder. I was in love at first swatch!

4. JOR’EL Parker Classico Perfume– Retails for $16. This perfume has gotten mixed reviews. I actually like it. It comes in a roller ball which makes for easy traveling and carry. It has a sweet, yet, unique scent, which has impressive staying power.

5.  Eau Thermale Avene Cleanance gel– Retails for $20. Deep-penetrating, soap-free cleanser eliminates impurities and excess sebum without stripping the skin.

As you can see, this Ipsy bag has certainly paid for itself with the quality of products received.

J Spoolz Bio:

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is a city popularized by its humble steel background, successful sports teams, and its blue collar attitude. As a Pittsburgh native, J-Spoolz brings these elements to the forefront of Hip-hop music, giving you a glimpse into what its like growing up in the Steel City.

A solo artist, J Spoolz has been putting his thoughts to the page for over 10 years. Gaining popularity in the city with his first release, The Way I See It (2004), was just the beginning of the road ahead. Focused and assertive, Spoolz began attending music conferences, including the popular TJs DJs and Tastemakers Music Conference, spreading his name and his music past the boundaries of Pittsburgh.

Garnering interest and respect from a few names established in the music business through his networking, Spoolz continues to set his goals toward spreading his music to the masses. He has been getting features from such names as Wiz Khalifa, Stat Quo, and Graph among others, and producing mixtapes with DJ S1, DJ Smallz, and DJ Furious Stylez.

With the ever growing attention, he has opened for acts like Rick Ross, T-Pain, Bun-B, and Lil’ Wayne. He has been touring to different parts of the country all while consistently releasing top quality music with his Pittsburgh State of Mind (Vol 1. &2) and Obsessions and Hangovers (Vol1 & 2) series. You may have heard him on Sirius/XM Radio on Eminem’s Shade 45 station, and markets out west like in Bakersfield with the highly acclaimed Baka Boyz.
