If you’ve never heard of Mommy Uncensored let me be the one to tell you! This web series is hilarious and packed full of the types of shenanigans our parents never told us about when we were growing up! The star of the show, Charity J, is hilarious as a young mom, “Karen Wright”, who tries to do the right thing for her kids and husband while balancing a household and crazy situations all at the same time. Charity and I were actresses together in the Freddie Hendricks’ Youth Ensemble of Atlanta and we went to highschool together and so years later its good to see her performing again. I love this show!!! It just may be the next “Awkward Black Girl” for all you folks familiar with the underground comedy web series, in terms of having the sort of cross over appeal but sort of more like awkward black mom. Mommy Uncensored is shot on location in Atlanta, GA, one of the entertainment industry’s hottest hubs, and also my hometown. Also starring in the series are the hilarious Reemo Rod Thomas, Shannon Byrd, recording artist D. Woods, Jelani Akil Jones, Kelly M. Jenrete, and Lillian Lee plus numerous guest stars . Produced by Shimone Woodberry, Nikki Towers, Adrian Dukes, and her husband and partner Justin Jordan.
The Pool Cover up episode is one of my favorites. I mean she goes in on the subject of post baby body! For all the folks talking about celebrities and the “snapback” body, this episode is for you! And for all my folks out there who dug the Southern Pin-Up EP my music is featured in Episode 6: Mission Impossible. I’ve been excited about this show for a while because the stars and co-stars and producers of the show are people I’ve known for years, my friends are truly talented, and making strides as independent artists! Add this series to your daily online watching! You won’t be disappointed I’m quite proud! Click the links below for more Mommy Uncensored.
I dare you to broaden your minds! Young African Queens of the Diaspora are here! Well, the latest playlist that is! Listen to something new for a minute or 1 hour In support of indie artists and musicians everywhere and divas of the African diaspora: English speaking, Spanish speaking, and those of various African or European languages are all on this short list together. I put a new Youtube playlist together to listen to while I write. Actually, many of the artists added to this playlist are not new, many of them have a huge following outside of the US but if you’re anything like me you may find yourself listening to America’s top 40 constantly and just might enjoy listening or learning about other artists you haven’t heard before. So I went on a search on Youtube, this playlist consists of what I’ve found. Start listening now!
Now not to confuse or leave anyone out this 1st list consists of female artists who are new to me and perhaps new on the landscape of music in the last few years, I could of course populate a list with beautiful queens like Angelique Kidjo, Miriam Makeba, and Celia Cruz. But this list is something different. Please hit me with more names of artists who fit this title I learn something new everyday and look forward to hearing from you guys. The Ask Saycon page is there for questions. Click the link to listen while you work. As a kid I’ve always had a fascination with maps imagine all the musicians of the African diapora making music throughout the world and check out a list of names below:

Did you catch 106 & Park episode featuring Kimberly Nichole? Well it was a great episode that featured new talent and gave a platform to new artists Kimberly Nicole and K. Michelle! I was thrilled to be part of the studio audience! I can’t wait to sing on BET too one day!Kimberly turned it out singing live with her band and K. Michelle debuted her new music video.
