Beloved Jackson Music – E.P. Supernova – Now available on Pandora, Tidal and Apple Fallin for You – Available on all Major streaming networks

Beloved is an American Singer and Songwriter who is creating her own music, as well as breaking the barrier on music-making in the music industry. She is a songwriter who will customize a song just for the musician and give it that perfect sound that they’ve been searching for! She is very creative and gifted when it comes to the manipulation of words and is willing to go the extra mile to make sure that you have exactly what it is that you had in mind. Remember that the song will be customized just for you! This means, she will study the artist, study their likes and interests as well as speak with you about the types of things that you like to talk and sing about. Then you would give her a concept of what you would like your song(s) to be about and let her take over from there. She writes for men, women, children and teenagers.

Beloved Jackson was born in Japan and moved to California at the age of 3. She started singing at the age of 3 years old. Beloved was a part of a group at the age of 11 called “Perfect Praise”. This was a gospel rap group who sang at local events around their community. She has always been interested in creating things, along with sounds and lyrics for music. Singing and writing has always been a passion of hers from a very young age.

Formerly in several Christian choirs, Beloved performed solos at her hometown church and was also involved with events held for the children; wanting to make a difference in their lives. They are one of her main focuses and motivations for pursuing her career. One of her ultimate goals is to help those in need, which are victims of poverty stricken areas.

Beloved likes to use metaphors to help paint pictures of the music and bring it alive. She will use something as small as a butterfly to something as big as the country of Japan.

She does not discriminate when it comes to genres. With some songs having an RnB feel, and some showing the neo soul side of her. She loves the Lord and is not afraid to throw a gospel song in the mix to show it. She believes that you should go with the feeling and take everything as it comes, while having a plan at the same time. The plan for her music is to express herself, and she is able to do that with different genres of music styles. She does not put herself inside of a box or put a label on herself.

Beloved released her new EP titled “Supernova” and a single in SEptember titled “Fallin for you”.

In Memory of: Betty Davis (July 16, 1944 – February 9, 2022) #bettydavis #condolences #blackmusic #funk #soul #blackart #art

Betty Davis (July 16, 1944 – February 9, 2022)an American funk and soul singer. She is remembered for her controversially sexual lyrics and performance style, and as having been Miles Davis’s second wife.

Davis — who died on Wednesday at 77 — made music that felt ahead of its time, but maybe only in the sense that it came from the mouth of a Black woman who liked to wear sexy spacesuits. Her music’s central theme, desire, is eternal human life-force stuff, and Davis approached its scalding hotness as a form of truth-telling. “I wrote about love, really, and all the levels of love,” she told the New York Times back in 2018. “When I was writing about it, nobody was writing about it. But now everybody’s writing about it.” Washington Post

As a model in 1966, Betty first met jazz musician Miles Davis, who was 19 years her senior. At the time he was separated from his first wife, dancer Frances Davis, and was dating actress Cicely Tyson. Betty began dating Miles in early 1968, and they were married in September 1968. In just one year of marriage, she influenced him greatly by introducing him to the fashions and the new popular music trends of the era. In his autobiography, Miles credited Betty with helping to plant the seeds of his future musical explorations by introducing the trumpeter to psychedelic rock guitarist Jimi Hendrix and funk innovator Sly Stone. The Miles Davis album Filles de Kilimanjaro (1968), which features a photo portrait of Betty on the cover, includes a song named after her.

In his autobiography, Miles said Betty was “too young and wild,” and accused her of having an affair with Jimi Hendrix, which hastened the end of their marriage.Betty denied the affair stating, “I was so angry with Miles when he wrote that. It was disrespectful to Jimi and to me. Miles and I broke up because of his violent temper.” After accusing her of adultery, he filed for divorce in 1969. Miles told Jet magazine at the time that the divorce was obtained on a “temperament” charge. He added, “I’m just not the kind of cat to be married.” Hendrix and Miles remained close, planning to record, until Hendrix’s death. The influence of Hendrix and especially Sly Stone on Miles Davis was obvious on the album Bitches Brew (1970), which ushered in the era of jazz fusion. The origin of the album’s title is unknown, but some believe Miles was subtly paying tribute to Betty and her girlfriends. In fact, it is said that he originally wanted to call the album Witches Brew—it was Betty who convinced him to change it.

Davis briefly dated musician Eric Clapton, and she refused to collaborate with him.

In 1975 Davis’ lover Robert Palmer helped her secure a deal with Island Records. Shortly thereafter she released her album Nasty Gal.

Davis died on February 9, 2022, at her home in Homestead, Pennsylvania, from natural causes at the age of 77. [Wikapedia]

Tribute to Bell Hooks art by Brett Cook

#repost From Brett Cook …sad. Thank you #bellhooks for so much: “If I were really asked to define myself, I wouldn’t start with race; I wouldn’t start with blackness; I wouldn’t start with gender; I wouldn’t start with feminism. I would start with stripping down to what fundamentally informs my life, which is that I’m a seeker on the path. I think of feminism, and I think of anti-racist struggles as part of it. But where I stand spiritually is, steadfastly, on a path about love.”From the Models of Accountability Series Acrylic and Spray Enamel on Mirrored Plexiglas, Books 50” X 48” X 16”Books by bell hooks Ain’t I a Woman: Black Women and Feminism All About Love: New Visions Art on My Mind: Visual Politics Be Boy Buzz Black Looks: Race and Representation Bone Black: Memories of Girlhood Breaking Bread: Insurgent Black Intellectual Life (with Cornel West)Communion: The Female Search for Love Daughters of the Dust: The Making of an African American Woman’s Film Feminism is for Everybody Feminist Theory: From Margin to Center Happy to be Nappy Homemade Love Home Grown: Engaged Cultural Criticism Killing Rage: Ending Racism Outlaw Culture: Resisting Representations Reel to Real: Race, Sex, and Class at the Movies Remembered Rapture: The Writer at Work Rock My Soul: Black People and Self-Esteem Salvation: Black People and Love Skin Again Sisters of the Yam: Black Women and Self-Recovery Space Soul Sister: Women, Friendship, and Fulfillment Talking Back: Thinking Feminist, Thinking Black Teaching Community: A Pedagogy of Hope Teaching to Transgress: Education as the Practice of Freedom We Real Cool: Black Men and Masculinity Where We Stand: Class Matters The Will To Change: Men, Masculinity and Love Witness by Brett Cook

With supreme respects to Music DeWolfe, KPM Music Recorded Library and Bosworth Music library, just to name a few, plus of course my all time favorite soundtrack; Blade Runner (Vangelis), I present to you at the spark of Spring Equinox, Full moon and Aries (my birth season):


This is autobiographical…my philosophy is “A MIND WITH NO CEILING” The sky having a limit is an oxymoron. This is a soundtrack dedicated to the skies and shifting a dream into reality by all means necessary, no matter the distractions all around navigating through this system (man made boxes/genres/borders/walls, RACE, etc)

Produced within/between various cities and seasons over a year; Berlin, Chicago, San Francisco, Oakland, and finalized within Los Angeles, cover was shot in Brussels, Belgium.

In addition to telling my own life story, the goal is also to get this project licensed for film series, commercials, movies and video games. There are no samples, everything is played and recorded similar to the original library music record companies mentioned above; One take no overdubs, wide ranged, experimental and moody, perfect for sitting in your crate and sampling for your future productions as well….I ENCOURAGE IT, JUST GIVE ME CREDIT!!!

*want to see this on vinyl?!? Down for a preorder?!? Holla! *

Doc TMK: AN INTERVIEW WITH @INFINITO2017 #repost from @OverBlog @culturepower45

Posted in infinito 2017, music with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 12, 2019 by Brother Perspective Magazine


An interview with Infinito 2017

In March, the label Culture Power45 will release the vinyl record “Prolific Hits 3” of Infinito 2017 AKA Marcellous Lovelace. It’s therefore an opportunity for me to question him about his Art.
You were born in Chicago, in the year of 1975 then growing up there. At 13, during the summer of 89, you realized you wanted to be an MC. Who were your first Hip Hop influences?
Infinito 2017:

– I actually started freestyling Hip Hop raps, writing graf and B – Boy / break dancing when I was 10 years old. The first songs I was able to record on a tape deck were made when I was 12 years old. Freestyling was just like writing graffiti to me because it was just free flowing styles and expressing self. I never intended to create my art forms for others, mostly everything you see me do and release to the public is my personal expression. The worst feeling in the world to me is collaborating with others who do not share in my spirit or my views because it distorts my expression in its totality. I’m a free spirited thinker and I think all people should only express for themselves first and if someone else likes it then that’s cool too. My first influence was my cousin Fatnice and my Uncle Pat. Fatnice is still one of the best Hip Hop Emcees to me and Pat was a Dj who schooled us on Run Dmc, Grandmaster Flash and BDP etc. Some of my early influences were KRS ONE (BDP), Chuck D (Public Enemy), Ultramagnetic Mc’s, Busy Bee, Jungle Brothers, Run Dmc, Stetsasonic, Gangstarr,  Just Ice, Fat Boys, Dj Pete Rock, Brand Nubians, Son Of Bazerk, Kool Herc, X Clan, Rock Steady, Kase 2, Skeme (Writer), Style Wars move etc ..Many more from this generation taught me the lessons. I grew up on positive love of self and kind!

In the early 90s, you were forced to move in Fort Knox, then Memphis. At this time, you disliked these places. What the subject matter of your Art (as a lyricist and a painter too) in this hectic era of your life?

My music and art have always been personal creative expressions. I never use outside influences as ways to create my own art. I never thought no one should bite, copy or clone others. No one should have the same voice or cadence styles. My subjects are normally based on the moment of self awareness; I’m using myself as a reference of understanding. When I and my late cousin Shon (LDP) first started recording Nelson Mandela was being released from prison, Apartheid was a major crisis on stolen land in Southern Africa (Azania), Ronald Reagan / Bush destroyed Black America even worse then what Nixon and others had. These were my topics in the 80’s early 90’s. Most of my Black art and Black Cartoons, Black books etc consisted of these topics as well. I never create from another person’s view point I just create from experiences and my life’s understandings. If you research my black art, black music, black books, black movies and other ethereal creative expressions you will learn I’m a documentarian who is writing my biography.

LDP stands for Lamont (My middle name) and Dariel’s (Shons Middle name) Posse, Shon passed away in the 90’s he is the son of my Uncle who is the Nephew of Frank (my independent label dedicated to my family after my cousin Shon died from senseless violence in Chicago). Also Pat is one of his mothers brothers. My independent label Joe Left Hand Records is a label dedicated to my late Uncle Joe Lovelace who is a left hand Scorpio like myself who was a creative soul.

 In the 2000s, you are in your peak of productivity. Some years, you’re able to record like 10 albums. In this decade, who are the producers and other Hip Hop artists you have worked with?

I normally created up to 25 to 30 albums a year from 1999 to 2017; you would have to do in-depth research to find all of my aliases, no person on earth has ever been able to find them all. I have created albums using over 25 monikers. This is more because I’m introverted on purpose, too much of the wrong energy hurts and serves no purpose. The producers are to various to count but it was mostly Memo from the Molemen, Dion Brown (COOL D), Fatnice, Mr. Skurge, Mixx Massacre, Thaione Davis, Insight and many more. I released over 400 records during this time. I have over 17 different albums coming out this year.

By the way, in view of your astronomical number of recordings, how did you proceed to select the tracks on the “Prolific Hits 3” project?

I wanted to release some of the songs I liked to perform the most on vinyl because they have never been on vinyl. Prolific Hits 3 is just a continuation of me being consistent in my life, void of others viewpoints. My music is my heart in audio format.

Did you already come in France? I hope we get a chance to see you here on stage! 

Yes I have toured France twice; I’m willing to come back only if someone else books all the shows and buys the tickets, I can sleep in the many hostels throughout the country. Otherwise you have to catch me in Phoenix in Arizona, Bahia in Brazil, Honolulu in Hawaii or various parts of the African Continent. I tour impromptu alone (sometimes with DJ) … booking at or @infinito2017 @joelefthandrecords (Instagram)

Who would you like to thank for the release of Prolific Hits 3 and more generally for your artistic journey?

I’d like to thank my Father rest in Peace, My Mother and My Grandmother. These people are the only support system I have on earth and they always helped me have a space to create without limits. No one helps me make music in any consistent way, many people try to use me, it’s truly a personal solo consistent quest and I love it like this alone! I spend more time creating than anything else on earth. Never Waste time or share space with those who have nothing useful to offer. You can pick up the vinyl and other releases from also visit / to get other Infinito 2017 and Crew collection.

Thanks to Infinito 2017 for answering my questions
Wish his new record “Prolific Hits 3” being succesful.
