Sit back and relax with the MAD LOVE Loop Pack 🎶
America doesn’t deserve America 🏞
Oh you thought we were just dropping the MAD LOVE Loop Pack?? You can also pre-order your limited edition upcycled vintage tie-dye MAD LOVE t-shirt exclusively on @bandcamp ! Only 25 available, so don’t miss out 😢
Music has the power to be a force of healing. With the current state of the world, I decided that for this #BandcampDay I wanted to release music focused on collective relaxation. The MAD LOVE Loop Pack, exclusively on @bandcamp , includes tracks “Meditation,” “Affirmation,” and “Dedication.” So sit back, fill a bath, light something, do whatever you need to feel at peace, and let the music fill your soul. I love you all, I hope you enjoy it 🙏🏽🤍
What better time to record something really special for this INCREDIBLE @briccelebratebk lineup than a cross country road trip 🚙💨 Tune in July 25th & 26th to catch me and some of my favorite artists spread some musical love! PS - join the #TRYtribe on my @patreon for some exclusive BTS content of the performance!
Happy Birthday to my biggest brother @taylormcferrin 🥳 You’re the coolest person I know. Thanks for letting me try to be cool with you ❤️
Thank y’all so much for helping us raise over $2k for #BreonnaTaylor ’s family’s GoFundMe 🙏🏽🕊✨ Going forward 100% of the proceeds from any @bandcamp purchase of “Can You See?” will go directly to fighting for justice for the victims of police violence. None of this can replace the life of this beautiful, ESSENTIAL, Black womxn, but we can all do our part to ease her families pain. Oh, and we still need to ARREST THE COPS THAT KILLED BREONNA TAYLOR!
I VOTED IRL BC NY DIDNT SEND ME MY ABSENTEE BALLOT, WE STILL OUT HERE SINGIN & DOIN OUR CIVIC DUTY! 📥
Happy Father’s Day to a real one 🖤
Today marks 5 years since meeting this incredible human. I am so grateful for this beautiful, Black love now more than ever. This love holds me down and lifts me up in ways that I didn’t even know possible. The growing pains of partnership have been the most challenging and rewarding I have ever known, I’m lucky to be going through them with such a patient, caring man. Love is beautiful, y’all, it is so, so beautiful 🖤✨
[SOUND ON] Today is Breonna Taylor’s 27th birthday. SHE SHOULD BE HERE! She didn’t even get a chance to put her hands up cuz of that bs “no knock” warrant. It’s hard enough being a Black woman in Amerikkka, let alone an essential worker who was putting her life on the line during a pandemic. SHE DESERVED TO REST! SHE SHOULD BE HERE! I wrote “Can You See?” over 3 years ago, ain’t shit changed. For this month’s @bandcamp day, I want you all to purchase “Can You See?” and spread it far & wide. 100% of the proceeds go to Breonna Taylor’s family’s GoFundMe. No amount of money can make up for this loss. Bandcamp link in bio. Rest easy, Breonna 🙏🏽🖤 #CanYouSee #CanYouSeeBreonna #sayhername #blacklivesmatter
Thank you @whitneyrmcguire for sharing this information. Stay informed, stay strong, stand up, VOTE ✊🏽
I’m thinking a lot about when I was this carefree Black girl in Minneapolis. It breaks my heart to see my childhood home in such distress and to feel so helpless being far away from my friends + family in the thick of it. But we are ANGRY! This is centuries of bottled up rage! These people are fighting against injustice! Nothing will change in this country if we don’t fight for what we believe in and stand up against oppression. I love you, Minneapolis. Stay safe, stay strong, stand up (and please cover your faces ) ✊🏽 If you would like to help from afar, please consider donating to the @mnfreedomfund , a non-profit who pay for criminal bails and immigration bonds ❤️
Happy 35th to my big brother @jevonmcferrin 🎉 I’m so proud of the man you’ve become, thanks for always having my back ❤️
I’m so excited for y’all to see this beautiful collaboration between music & dance for TETHERED! It was fun to improvise and just let the music flow, knowing that these incredible @alvinailey dancers would do the same 💃🏾✨ Here’s a sneak peak of my love @jessica .a.pinkett doing her thang 👀 Tune in this Thursday at 9pm EST publicrecords.tv to catch magical movement from Jessica, @jagreen711 , @sfigg_udigg , and Jacquelin Harris, accompanied by yours truly! Presented by @fourfourpresents ❤️
Thinking about sunshine and fresh air and sky and laughter and why black joy is radical 🌤
When quarantine started, I made it a point to brush up on my piano/chart reading skills 🎼🎹🎶 “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout a Thing,” my favorite Stevie Wonder song, was the first song I decided to tackle. Learning it gave me more confidence in the foundational skills I’ve taken for granted, and made me feel closer to one of my idols ❤️ So here’s a little snippet. It’s not nearly as solid as I would want it to be (this 1 minute only took me ~30 takes to get right 😂 ), but it’s getting there! Happy 70th Birthday, Stevie, this world is so much brighter bc of you 🎂✨
[SOUND ON] Hugs are a way of saying “I love you.” A warm embrace just hits different, especially when it’s coming from the first person you touch - your mama. Thank you so much to the friends & mamas in my #TRYtribe who shared videos, and to @jasiaka for putting this together ❤️ I can’t wait to hug my mama.
Happy Mother’s Day to the most thoughtful, caring, generous, beautiful woman I know 💕 I wish I was waking up with you today as planned, but this pic will have to suffice in the meantime lol 😂 I’ve got something else special to share with y’all later today, so stay tuned!
The Last Show B.C. - I didn’t know this would be my last live show before the world completely changed… It was such a wonderful night in Brooklyn, filled with so many beautiful people and so much love. My heart is full of gratitude for everyone who came out for this intimate evening of music + conversation w/ @confident_leader for @offair @publicrecordsnyc . If this was the last in-person show I ever have, it was the perfect one to go out on. I also didn’t know that @jacobblick captured this beautiful moment. It warmed my heart to see this image of my #TRYtribe gathered together to share positive energy. When he approached me about collaborating for his project that gives, not just to the artists, but also to organizations doing positive work in the community, I jumped on the opportunity. With that in mind, we decided to add autographed, limited edition archival prints of this B&W shot by “The Last Show B.C. (Before COVID ) to my @bandcamp for the last few hours of #BandcampDay . 50% of the proceeds from the prints go to @chefjoseandres ’ @wckitchen 🍽 Don’t miss this opportunity to get some art/history while helping feed folks in need ❤️
The people have spoken! Thanks for helping me choose the cover for the “Stay TF Inside - Live Loop Pack” 🙏🏽✨ Get it now exclusively on @bandcamp ! Since they’re waiving their fee to give artists 100% of the proceeds, I decided to throw up some limited edition You + I vinyl from my personal collection that I was gonna sell on the tour (RIP 😢 ). Go support your faves! Link in bio👆🏽 . . 📸 @ameriky
Ya girl’s gonna be LIVE on @vicenews this Monday at 7pm EST! Stay tf inside and tune in on VICE News’ Facebook & Youtube 📺🕖🎶
Now that I’ve got all this free time to play dress up, I’m even more grateful for the folks at @eugenetaylorbrand for sending me this beautiful number 🕊✨
