๐Ÿ‘ธ๐ŸฝCrystal Banks ๐Ÿ“ธ

Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ there is talent right under your nose if you look or pay attention to it. With that being said, please allow me to introduce the melanated modelesque queen, Crystal Banks. 3 words to define her: FIERCE. ENCHANTING. MESMERIZING.

“There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty.”

โ€” Steve Maraboli

Photo credit: Kool Kreations

Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ she cannot be ignored. In fact, she has a face that you automatically notice, or perhaps maybe, it’s her glow & aura that hits you first. Whatever it is, when you come across her, you KNOW it. Her face is stunning, & it’s pure & alluring with beauty. Her modeling talent is in a class of its own. Her vitality is contagious.

As we all know, just because someone has a pretty face, doesnโ€™t necessarily make them model. However, in this case, Crystal is more than just a pretty face. She was MADE to do this. A model isn’t what she does, it’s who she is. Her confidence & sexiness blares through each photo thatโ€™s captured. The quality of the photos & the poses she strikes are intoxicating. From the hint of sparkle in her eyes to the structure of her facial features, she is a visual body of work. Time after time, she strikes poses that are perfectly formed & vary from sharp & precise to soft & subtle–powerful, yet gentle–strong, yet approachable.

Stereotypically, society used to deem a model as thin or small in frame or stature. Crystal defies these stereotypes as she embraces her curves & serves the body she has with perfection. In my opinion, this gives so much life! She has redefined the word “model,” & set her own standards. She is easily an inspiration to both women & young girls–ESPECIALLY those of color. I’m speaking for us all when I say, we salute you & appreciate you Queen โœŠ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ–ค.

๐Ÿ“ธPhoto credit : Kool Kreation

She is a work of fine art with even toned skin, & makes the viewer, both male & female, stop in their tracks to admire her. Though she wears no literal crown, she gives queen energy; however, her beautiful locs adorn her head creating her own crown of royalty.

She serves both body & face in timeless & breathtaking photos. Her work as a model creates two moods in the viewer: it draws you in, then it blows you away. Every time she attends a photo shoot, she delivers. DROP. DEAD. GORGEOUS. —๐Ÿ‘๐ŸฝEVERY๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ SINGLE ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸฝTIME! She is guaranteed to turn heads with her uncontested beauty. She’s beautiful. She’s radiant. She’s ravishing. SHE is Queen ๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿฝ Crystal Banks.

…& She’s a force to be reckoned with. I’m more than certain she will be one of the next big names in the industry.

Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ Be on the lookout, Queen B is on her way! And we are here for it! โœจ

๐Ÿ’‰Mister Enigma โœ๐Ÿฝ๏ธ

Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹, got ink? ๐Ÿ’‰๐Ÿ’‰

Wanna be dipped in ink? ๐Ÿ’‰

โ—๏ธOnce more, Twitter has struck again. Please allow me to introduce the talented artist, Mister Enigma–owner & mastermind behind the business & brand –>Safe Haven Tattoos.

If you have been tuning in to the Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ Show, you have probably heard his name a few times (and by now you should be following him because Stephy Said It).

โ—๏ธLet me explain a few reasons why he has been worthy of these shout outs:

โ€ข He creates with the utmost care & attention to EVERY detail

โ€ข His creative mind is unmatched. 

โ€ข His artistic style is a bold expression, & it is deeply infused with his passion for drawing & creating. 

โ€ข His art form is a multidimensional space where a variety of thoughts and ideas coexist. Creativity meets reality. The two worlds collide & burst into a mind blowing creation.


๐ŸšจIf you havenโ€™t had a chance to check out his work, (with his permission), I have included some pictures below.


Time & time again, Mister Enigma breathes new life into the art of drawing & tattooing. In each piece he creates, he helps us see his vision. I must admit, watching his YouTube videos have been satisfying to see an empty slate come to life with each stroke of ink. Each canvas he fills tells a story, & each time the story is different. I don’t know about you, but I LOVE a good story. He uses bodies & blank pages as a canvas, ready to be filled. His art appeals to your emotions & eyes. He flawlessly creates art for all ever changing moods that range from fun & flirty, medieval or explicit.

His knack for originality is unparalleled. In other words, Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ , when it comes to the tattooing & drawing thing, you ainโ€™t fw him! 

IMHO (in my honest opinion), his work is a portrayal of a mixture of his imagination & real-life observations, resulting an end outcome that is impressively & perfectly executed. In fact, his imaginative world transforms the visible world, and you are able to step into his mind through his artwork.

It is more than evident that his artistry is fueled by his passion for art, both drawing & tattooing. Honestly, his work & his talent is uncontainable and has no boundaries. His level of creating is out of the box & simply out of this world. EXTRATERRESTRIAL ๐Ÿ’ซ

His art does 3 words: CAPTURES, COMMUNICATES, & CONVEYS

His technique is both distinguished & deeply thoughtful. He pushes the limits & creates daring masterpieces. His artistic approach is an oxymoron as it is a simplistically complex one. Each drawing is original & never duplicated. Iโ€™ve enjoyed taking the journey with his art. In two short words, Mister Enigma is an ARTISTIC GENIUS!

๐ŸŽคThe Voice: Malik Davรกge๐ŸŽถ

Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹, once again, social media has introduced me to another dope unsigned artist. Ladies & gentlemen, please allow me to introduce, Malik Davรกge.

If you are wondering if you’ve heard this name or seen this face before; perhaps you remember him as a contestant on season 12 of NBC’S, The Voice as he won the support of Adam Levine resulting in Adam turning his chair around during blind auditions. Though his journey there ended, his music career is just getting started. His followers, likes, supporters, & fans continue to grow & soar.

In addition to his debut on The Voice, Malik has also performed on BET’s 106 & Park connecting with the audience giving them R&B vibes.

I’m not sure if you’ve ever heard him sing before, but his voice is pure & idiosyncratic (distinctive). There’s undoubtedly only ONE Malik Davรกge. The creative vibes & intoxicating energy he gives in his music will transport you to another realm. He creates “feel good” music, the type of music you can ride to AND vibe to. His music puts you “in the zone” and his works are ones to get lost in. He makes the kind of music that makes you want to sing with him, EVEN if you can’t sing. He, along with his music, can be described as memorable with quotable lyrics. He successfully captures emotions & place then into songs. I swear his songs get better with each repeated play. His ability to orchestrate each rhythmic tune is impeccable. In other words, he can put together dope music–rhythms & lyrics. As I follow his music career, I see the constant growth & level up as an artist. He reinvents himself & keeps himself current. I witness him work to become the best artist he can be for his supporters. Let me add that not only is he an artist, he’s an entertainer. Each performance he gives energy & stage presence along with delivering vocals.

I remember seeing one of his covers on Twitter, & constantly retweeting it just so it wouldn’t go away. Unfortunately, Twitter temporarily suspended his account, & his presence has definitely been missed on the TL (timeline).

I’ve been a top fan for a while ๐Ÿ˜

(Don’t worry Malik! We are fighting for you to return to Twitter ๐Ÿ˜‰)

Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ if you aren’t already, join the experience & follow the journey of Malik Davage!! He’s down to earth & relatable. You won’t be disappointed!

๐ŸšจFELLAS, SKIP THIS LINE! ๐Ÿšจ

The Difference in Candidates

Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ I would like to take a brief moment to blog about my personal beliefs & observations during this sheriff campaign. These are a few events & instances that have been on my mind since they have occurred.

If this offends you, I will apologize in advance.

During the Franklin Fall Festival on October 5th, there were tents set up with the sheriff candidates: Wyche, Potter, & Turner.

I spent a great deal of my day, (about 3 hours) browsing and roaming the festival. While I was walking, I would glance & see Capt. Josh Wyche mingling with different individuals: individuals of different races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and religious beliefs. The smiles the he was met with reassured me that the community feels safe & comfortable while in his presence. With the growing rate of police brutality, this is essential.

As I continued browsing, while walking past the Potter & Turner tents & tables, I noticed that not one of them nor their campaigners approach me nor my family–as if we were invisible. We weren’t even met with a smile, a wave, or a friendly gesture. I’ll admit, this bothered me. Was I not worthy of speaking to? My vote should count too, right? After all, I am a registered voter.

In addition to that observation, I did not see a person of color as a campaigner or being recognized. This issue is important & noticeable to me. I observe the differences that I see, probably BECAUSE I’m a person of color.

As an African American, it is important for me to be seen & treated as equal & to not have other races seem “uncomfortable” with me, around me, or approaching me. In no way am I insinuating that neither Potter nor Turner are racist, however, it may be presumed because of the action, OR the lack thereof when they noticed people of other ethnicities at the event.

Recently, I saw a post on Facebook that endorsed Mark Turner with Evelyn Fancher -McKinney stating, “The good thing about retirement is that you can support the best qualified Candidate without fear of retribution. Also, anybody can study budgets and other reports, but Mark knows the County and the people that reside here. I’ll take the commonsense candidate any day over the power hungry. ๐Ÿ™‚(See Screenshot)

To which I responded, “Evelyn Fancher – McKinney unfortunately, as a lifelong resident of the county, I do not know Mark & he does not know me.

These moments are vital because, during the Franklin Fall Festival, Mark Turner was presented with the perfect opportunity to introduce himself to me & get to know me as a resident of Southampton County, yet he failed to seize the opportunity. He allowed me, along with my family, to walk past his tent without so much of second glance.

The other concern is Mark Turner has been rallying his campaign by his campaigners & supporters taking personal attacks on Capt. Josh Wyche’s character rather than inform the community of what he could do to assist us and make the community a better place to live. If you have been paying any amount of attention to the campaign, there hasn’t been an instance in which Capt. Josh Wyche nor his endorsements have taken low blows at the character of either component. In the words of Former 1st Lady Michelle Obama, “when they go low, we go high.” These are the things that are important to pay attention to with meticulous detail.

During a Power Palooza, a free event open to the public, I remember the heat & humidity. It was scorching hot, yet Lt. Josh Wyche rallied with the people of the community & gave us his support during this event. He encouraged the citizens of the community, and spoke on the importance of voting overall. I do not recall seeing any other candidate, perhaps they were there and left before I arrived. Maybe, they were there and didn’t make themselves known. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ Whatever the case may have been, I remember Capt. Josh Wyche standing in the heat with us & for us.

Capt. Josh Wyche has been genuinely taking time to acknowledge citizens of Southampton County & the City of Franklin. That’s why you should take your time & hit the polls on voting day.

Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ take into consideration all things when you visit the polls on November 5th.

๐ŸšจDisclaimer: This post was not influenced or requested by Capt. Josh Wyche & does not represent his personal or political views. ๐Ÿšจ

๐ŸŽถAlex Jay

Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ meet Alex Jay, the angelic voice behind my favorite covers & musical genius behind his original musical art.

I began following Alex Jay on Twitter after coming across a video of him playing the guitar in the most melodic rhythm & singing with the most pure voice (Don’t believe me? Take a listen here).

His love for singing is apparent by the passion in his vocals. If you were to ask me what his music is like, I would use the words: refined, distinctive, & invoking. His voice is soothing & has a way of creating emotions, jarring feelings, & reviving life. It grasps your attention the moment he opens his mouth.

Normally, I am a reader, however his music & voice does for me what a good book does; it impacts me. As a listener, it affects me in unanticipated & unmeasured ways. It echos long after the music has come to an end.

The rhythm & tone he creates is distinctive & unique to him. His voice becomes an art of storytelling & causes you to reminisce about a particular moment. Not only do you reminisce about the moment, his voice seems to place you in that exact place. He sings in a way that makes you remember the moment, the feeling you had when the moment occurred, & brings it to the present.

His music sends sweet vibrations to the core of you heart & soul. His style of singing is intimate, inviting, & he puts you at ease. Personally, his voice has a way of calming my anxiety, enough to keep me grounded.

He has a sound that will transport you to your own world. Each song, whether it be a cover or an originally composed work or art, is written & sung with passion & heart wrenching emotion. His passion transmits to his listeners. Each rift & run that he flawlessly completes resounds within his listeners.

One of his goals & desires is to appear on the Ellen Degeneres Show–๐Ÿšจ๐Ÿšจcomplete this form to request him as a guest. ๐Ÿšจ๐Ÿšจ

Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ I personally won’t stop tweeting, retweeting, or completing request forms until the world knows the starโญ๏ธ he truly is!

๐ŸคชThe Weirdo : R.A.W.E

Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ I first stumbled across Devvon Terrell some years ago on Facebook recording covers (which I’ll admit, I enjoyed more than the artist version). I instantly became a fan & began saving all of his videos, liking his page, & following him on Facebook. During this time, he was known as the Living Weirdo. That name stood out to me, partially because of the logo & the other part was because it was relatable. He made being a weirdo kind of cool, something to wear on your chest as an honor.

I became such a crazed fan, that I joined the group Devvon Terrell’s RAWE group. The group is so much more than a group, we are Devvon’s extended weirdo family. Shortly before I joined the group, (July) Facebook sent a notification giving me a badge as a top fan โญ๏ธ.

Here’s why I HAD to write a post on Devvon Terrell: First, he DESERVES this recognition plus so much more than I could ever give him. He worked his way to this spot, & put in the time to build this fan base. I’ve said it before & I’m going to say it again–he’s completely UNDERRATED.

(One of my common questions is, “do you listen to Devvon Terrell?” If the answer is no, I’m sending a link to his music–right that second. If the answer is yes, I insert how amazing he is & they agree.) If you’ve never heard of him– click here & you’ll see he’s a big deal. He’s reinvented himself & his brand–& leveled up.

He & his music brought together fans & supporters of different races, age, & gender. Because of the growing hatred in the world today, this is big because Devvon Terrell has accomplished a common goal–unity. I guess it’s true after all, music is a universal language.

Secondly, he has OVER a million fans, followers, & supporters, but still takes time out of his busy schedule to actually comment & interact with his fans.

**(He’s made my night on a few occasions by liking my tweets & responding to my comments)

When he goes live, he actually reads comments & responds to them by calling names. Not a generic, “thank you” or response, but an actual acknowledgement of you as an individual.

Thirdly, his music (along with himself as artist) is RAWE —Real And Well Evolved. Musically, his sound is unique, but signature. His voice is intoxicating, notable & one you can never forget. When the beat drops, you know he’s going to snap on the mic. You get lost in his music, & his music comes complete with songs to fit any mood you may be feeling. New dimensions in his music are discovered with each subsequent listen as his songs get better with each repeated play. The bar is raised with each song, but he continues to outdo himself. The combination of dope songs & superb production make for very strong albums. His music not only evoke feelings, it creates an experience. He has created albums that are well versed and profoundly executed. Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ his music & albums can be described as:

โœ…a perfect treasure of melodies sung with passion

โœ…exclusively unique ventures

โœ…works of instrumental genius

โœ…melodies that seep into your brain that will leave you singing

โœ…memorable with quotable lyrics

โœ…embroidered with polished effects

โœ…some of the most intriguing albums of the year

โœ…proves to be a rousing showcase of the artist’s talents

โœ… rich in quality and balanced complexity

Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ Devvon Terrell comes highly recommended because he is highly listenable, & highly humble. From start to finish, his albums grasp your attention.

AU Wood ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ meet AU Wood, the lyrical genius behind some of your favorite songs & dopest hits that you probably haven’t heard yet.

On a day to day basis, Wood is a respectable & friendly individual, but drop a beat & watch him transform into a beast as he bodies a beat.

Wood delivers metaphors & punchlines bar after bar with an effortless delivery. He drops so much fire that you literally have to start the song over so you can hear the bars again–so much heat that you have to pause, regain your composure, & let others hear it. Overall, itโ€™s safe to say he delivers real music.

His level of humble confidence makes you do one of two things –love him or hate him. For most, it’s the first one. Whether it’s love or hate, either way he’s respected.

He studies the art & the technique of the art to develop his rapping technique. He pays homage to the greatest rappers in the industry through his music & his verses. His music production is crisp, high quality, & professional which makes it obvious that he takes pride in his art. The structure of his songs are is flawless & has a way of leaving you wanting to hear more even after the song is over. The harmonic blend of instruments & melodies gives you smooth beats that you can vibe to or hard beats that slap & hype you up with an old school vibe. His creativity is unmatched as seen by cover art of his album.

The ingenuity of his music capitalizes on his individuality & places him in a league of his own. Hear some of my favorites here:

Ms. Cookies Baby

Summer’s Mine

Open Letter to Jay-Z

Amerikkka

His voice over the beat is smooth yet authoritative, but the confidence is what grabs your attention. He recently dropped Summer’s Mine & it painted the Facebook timeline with profile pictures of the album cover in support of him. Since it’s dropped, it’s gotten nothing but positive feedback & reviews. (If you Instagram- #Summersmine ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ) In addition to Summer’s Mine dropping, he added a fire jersey to pay respect to his block ๐Ÿ”ฅ

He is lyrically a genius & places his words strategically so the flow is undeniably sick. He speaks on relatable real life issues & tells stories through his music.

His music has thousands of streams on Spotify & his fans & supporters continue to rock with him because he continues to put out dope music. Catch the wave, you may be listening to the next GOAT ๐Ÿ.

โš–๏ธChris Brown Weigh In

Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ I wasn’t going to give any attention to the whole Chris Brown fiasco.

However, Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ here’s my stance. Sure, Chris Brown caused some controversy by using “nice hair” in his lyrics. I can understand why someone would be offended because I understand all views & perspectives.

Butttttt…..

Here are my thoughts:

1. He said nice hair not good hair. That’s open for interpretation, and only he knows what he means.

This outrage is coming fans with their own view of what “nice hair” is and societal views of what hair pattern is considered to be “nice.”

However, let me add, it’s usually within our own culture that we define what’s “good hair” or “nice hair.”

Let’s admit as females we see waves as “good hair” or “nice hair” over dreads. Even as females, when we see females like Rasheeda from Love & Hip Hop ATL or any celebrity with slick edges or a bouncy girl pattern, even down to our own friends, we tend to say things like “girl, you got some good nice” or immediately begin wishing for hair like theirs. The trick I found is just complimenting hair as “looking nice.”

We (both genders) have been conditioned on both sides to think that nice hair or good hair is seen as Traci Ellis Ross hair. The thing is, I see more outrage when men use the term versus when women use it. If we are going to be offended, let’s be consistently offended. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

There wasn’t this much outrage when Beyoncรฉ’s lyrics included, “Becky, with the good hair” in which she chose the word “good” rather than “nice.” ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

2. It’s just hair & with as many weave & wigs are available, if you feel offended by the “nice hair” lyrics or don’t feel like you fit the description, then ๐Ÿ—ฃgo buy you so nice hair.

3. It’s his personal preference. Just as I prefer thicker & solid men. No offense to the slim ones, it’s just my preference for the bigger ones.

I have friends that prefer long hair or short hair, some that prefer mates with no kids, some that prefer lighter skin or darker skin & vice versa.

Could this be considered or seen as a form of discrimination or offensive? Absolutely, but it’s just a preference. ๐Ÿ—ฃPreferences are always going to be offensive to those that don’t fit the criteria.

The thing is everybody has their own preferences, & people just need to learn to let others have their preferences without the sensitivity.

4. Everyone is so sensitive nowadays, it makes it difficult for artists or anyone to name their preference without being ridiculed.

5. It’s not that deep. He’s not dating any of us sooo we should all let it go

The end.
