Melanin & Chlorophyll – Similarities and More!

All our lives we’ve been taught that too much sun is bad for us. We’ve been taught about how cancerous it can be. How hot it is. The list goes on. Yet, we are hardly taught the benefits of the sun.

As of recent, I started sun gazing. It is a practice that has been dated back since ancient times. It’s a practice where you stare at the sun during sun set or sunrise. Most people might say “Wait, isn’t that harmful?”. Well, contrary to common belief, if done correctly it actually has great health benefits.

If you think about how plants use the sun then you can further understand how we can also. As children, we were taught about photosynthesis and how plants turn sunlight into food. Green substance in producers that traps light energy from the sun, which is then used to combine carbon dioxide and water into sugars in the process of photosynthesis Chlorophyll is vital for photosynthesis, which helps plants get energy from light.

This same process is essentially the same in how melanin works for us. If you never noticed, which I’m sure you have, only fair toned people get sunburned. That’s because they don’t have enough melanin to protect them from harmful UV rays.

Although these processes are very similar chlorophyll can withstand a higher dosage of UV rays. Plants sit under the sun light all day with minor to no harm. That wouldn’t be the same case for humans.

Why we should have plenty of chlorophyll (green plants) in our diets.

Studies have proven that chlorophyll, in its various forms, has been proven to fight carcinogens in the body and reduce cancer risk. It also helps detoxify the liver and can expedite the healing of wounds. On top of all that, some have attributed improved digestion and weight management to a chlorophyll routine.

This Mom Stayed In Shape After 5 Kids!

Meet Venus Tutu! We stubbled across her after the picture below went viral!

Of course curiosity flew around wondering how in the world did she manage to do it! Most women are concerned about how their body will bounce back after pregnancy. Their bodies endure so much between weight gain and the stretching of the skin. So I asked Venus what her post pregnancy secrets were. This is what she revealed.

Venus was born in Liberia but moved to the states and was raised in Philly. She had her first child at the tender age of 17

“It was a drastic change for me, especially from my native background beliefs. Due to me having a baby so young and out of wedlock I became an outcast to my family. I went from having a roof over my head to being homeless/sleeping in laundromat bathrooms. I was still in high school, raising a baby with no knowledge of how to do so. I struggled a lot but my son kept me sane and pushed me to better both of our situation. He’s literally my life.”

Being so young, Venus felt like her body didn’t suffer much. She bounced right back into shape. She humorously replied “My breast didn’t get the same memo”.  It wasn’t until her second child where she actually started to take fitness seriously.

Venus explains that after her second child the “gym” was a trending thing at the time. It just so happens that it helped her stay in shape. Her wanting to workout in hopes of bouncing back after pregnancy didn’t happen until after her 3rd child. She explains how she focused on foods she saw the best weight loss results from

“After my 3rd baby my snap back wasn’t as quick. I still had some weight left on me. Once I noticed that I started going to the gym more and changed my eating habits(not entirely). I also discover the foods/drinks that made me drop pounds in days”

Venus’s grandmother birthed 14 kids and her body was amazing afterwards so she feels a lot of it had to do with genetics mixed with hard work. She says she loves her body. She lives to show it off as much as she can. She inspires the be a model at some point in her life.

Her latest test was recovering from having twins! Especially since the previous child wasn’t even a year old yet.

This took a real tool on her over all energy levels. She’s explains thats the hardest part about staying in shape,at this point, was simply getting up.

Venus understands the struggle of parenthood. Especially being a single parent. These are her words of advice.

“Take them kids with you ! Find a gym that has a daycare center inside and go workout ! Most mothers want to workout but can’t due to them not having anybody to watch their kids. So find a gym that has a daycare center and go ! You may not see results in days or weeks but don’t give up ! Pick certain days to work on certain things and stay consistent! You know it’s working when it hurts. Pain should encourage you even more! Build up your confidence and kick ass when you’re working on your body goals ! Please don’t go to the gym just to post pics on social media…focus on the goals you set”

artworks-000299534814-xgeaqe-t500x500

Crown is a rapper from Daytona Beach,Fl (Orlando area). He has branded himself as an elite lyricist. Something that Florida may not be heavy on. Crown has an outstanding hustle and team to back him. Along with his talents on the beat his also has branded himself on the threads.

“Shop Open” isn’t just a label it’s a brand of clothing. Crown and his team has made quit a name for themselves in the clothing market. I have some tee’s myself. The link to the website is below.

Shop Open Site

Now to the task at hand. Today we are here to review his most recent project “4 Da Love of the Game”. Its a free tape Crown put out to keep the followers focused. It has a lil Wayne mixtape kind of feel. Hard remixes. Crown has always delivered in the past so let’s see what he has in store. Track for track.

Track 1 – “Practice”

Track one is a remix to Tekashi 6ix9ine’s hit single “Gummo”. It’s starts off with a sample from the infamous Allen Iverson interview about practice. Crown goes on to spit through the entire beat wit uno hook. Fiery song full of punches. This tracks he definitely raps as if he has a chip on his shoulder!

Track 2 – “Pick Up Game ft DK Guwop”

This song has a funky beat. Crown switches of his flow a bit. The songs has a strong energy and is fun. Featured by another artist, DK Guwop (Part of the group 300lbs of Guwop) who is known for his eccentric uptempo style. This is definitely a beat knocker for the car.

Track 3 – “Away Game”

This track slows the tempo down. This is  definitely a vibe song. Something to smoke to, if you smoke. A stand out lyric, for me, was “Can you scream my name so loud that I don’t hear them hatin’ “. Flow is fire on this track. Almost like he doesn’t pause or take a breath

Track 4 – “Blouses”

This track had great swagger. Baller type song. Could see this being a single type of song. With a fun video. Would have loved to hear him rip this entire beat with no hook. The song ends with a line from the infamous Chappelle Show skit which featured Chappelle playing Prince as he beats Charlie Murphy in basketball. He ends the game with the line “Game…blouses”.

Track 5 – “HOF”

This song has a classic Jay-Z feel. Some great flow changes during the track. Cocky and brash lyrics. This track is a definitely a “I’m feeling myself” type of track. Great punches, lyrics, and metaphors. Dope track

Track 6 – “Foul Out”

This is another track where  Crown spit through the entire beat. Crown’s has a major presence on this track. He defiantly wants you to know that he is here. The beat and the aura go together perfectly to create this track. It gives you a triumphant feeling. Like the underdog has won.

Track 7 – “Down By 20”

We go back to a slower tempo. Another vibe track. He’s speaking a lot from his heart on this track. Very relaxed at points. Then suddenly he changes his flow and hypes the track up. Great mix in the track. He even squeezed some great subject matter.

Track 8 – “Buzzer Beater”

The beat definitely gives me a Cali feel. His flow is A1 and seems to be a great trend on this tape. He tells a deep and detailed story of his come up in this music and how he built his team. He definitely played this very well. Creative. Probably one of the best songs on the tape.

Track 9 – “MVP”

Unique beat. Hot. I can hear this being a single, as well.  Great mixing on this track. This track has a great feel. Great lyrics and punches. And, once again, a crazy flow.

Track 10 – “Overtime ft Castle”

The beat is insane! The person featured on the song sounds like Andre 3000. Over all this track is fire. Great cadence.

Final Opinions

This is a great tape if you’re trying to get the just of what Crown does. Fire lyrics, fire flow, and great subject matter. Great project teaser to lead to a major album or big mixtape. The theme was very well intact and I can appreciate the work put into the samples. I give this a 8.5 out of 10. Definitely industry level. The only critique I have is that he let the fans hear what he would sound like in album mode. I know those type of things take patience so we will be waiting. I’d definitely be on the look out for this Florida rapper. I left the link to the Soundcloud tape below.
