She's Luenell

lunelle_cover

Up The Way Magazine is constantly growing. With hardtimes upon many, we all could use a good laugh. I could tell you a joke or two myself. But, when I'm not working and have a minute or two to kick back, this is who makes me laugh. She's definitely funny and a Super Star. She's appeared in several films and music videos. She's constantly on tour around the globe. With a schedule that's quite demanding, she's shared herself with me for you. Ladies and gentleman, I present Luenelle.

 

Q: For Luenell, where did it all begin?

A: I was born in Tollette, Arkansas. At two months thru the age 5, I was brought to California. I lived in Berkley and Oakland. I was mostly educated in a white suburb of the Bay area called Asheboro Valley, California. I went to college in Hayward.

Changing The Music Starts At Home

1219020_notePeople keep saying the music today sucks; that it’s oversexed, arrogant and materialistic.  That may be somewhat true, but that doesn’t mean it’s completely shallow.  By compassion today’s music may not seem as poignant as the past, but it must not be dismissed.

Popular music, especially from black artists, is a window into who and where we are as a society. It isn’t the music that causes the problem, but rather the converse. It’s time we learn to read between the lines.

The music is materialistic because of our distorted sense of success. It's just like the times when black kids were inspired by the allure of neighborhood drug dealers, pimps and pickpockets.
