Nas Collabs With The National Symphony Orchestra For Live Rendition of ‘Illmatic’ - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ An upcoming PBS concert film has teamed up Nas with the National Symphony Orchestra for a live performance that takes you back to the 90s. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The iconic rapper will be doing a live rendition of his legendary, 1994 album “Illmatic” at the Washington, D.C. arena on Feb. 2. It is titled by PBS as, “Nas Live From the Kennedy Center: Classical Hip-Hop, the concert film musters the energetic appeal of the profound collaboration and wistfulness of the audible hip-hop Queensbridge fable.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "It’s crazy, you know, I wrote this in the projects in New York City. Here we are in the capital of America, Washington, DC, and, you know, a bunch of white people with strings and all that, playing this album, and they feeling it," Nas said in the film trailer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The recording of the concert film took place in March 2014, when Nas was celebrating Illmatic’s 20th anniversary. The film will portray the Queens native’s upbringing, career, and musical background. It will also feature rehearsals, preparation and Illmatic’s journey to Kennedy Center stage. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "This was the first time me as a classical orchestra conductor was going to branch out into the realm of doing hip-hop music and rap music. And the idea of finally tackling this genre was something I was really looking forward to do," National Symphony Orchestra Principal Pops Conductor Steven Reineke said in a statement. The performance is set to premiere on the PBS network nationwide on Friday, February 2 at 9 p.m: Nas Collabs With The National Symphony Orchestra For Live Rendition of "lllmatic" @balleralert Nas Collabs With The National Symphony Orchestra For Live Rendition of ‘Illmatic’ - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ An upcoming PBS concert film has teamed up Nas with the National Symphony Orchestra for a live performance that takes you back to the 90s. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The iconic rapper will be doing a live rendition of his legendary, 1994 album “Illmatic” at the Washington, D.C. arena on Feb. 2.

11-Year Old Wearing Earbuds and On Cellphone Killed By Amtrak Train While Crossing Tracks - blogged by @peachkyss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ An 11-year-old of Haines City, Florida was struck and killed by an Amtrak Train as she returned from getting soda and snacks for her and her brother. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, Yazmin Smith had earbuds in her ears and was looking at her cellphone as she walked towards the tracks. The train was traveling 68 mph. The conductor told investigators that he blew the horn for about a quarter of a mile while trying to stop the train. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Yazmin walked up and over the tracks with her earbuds in and never, ever, ever heard the train until the absolute last second, when she looked up and it was too late,” Judd said. “She tried to jump off the tracks, and she died as a result of being hit by the train.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yazmin was a fifth grader at Davenport School of the Arts, who was home with her 9-year- old brother that day. Smith’s brother was home napping when she decided to go to for snacks. The children’s mother was on her way home from work at the time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to investigators, the earbuds have not been evaluated yet. “If you have noise-canceling earbuds, plus you have your favorite music in your ears, the end result is what, apparently, at this point in the investigation, we saw,” Judd said. “She never heard the train.”: 11-Year Old Wearing Earbuds and On Cellphone Killed By Amtrak Train While Crossing TrackS@balleraler 11-Year Old Wearing Earbuds and On Cellphone Killed By Amtrak Train While Crossing Tracks - blogged by @peachkyss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ An 11-year-old of Haines City, Florida was struck and killed by an Amtrak Train as she returned from getting soda and snacks for her and her brother. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, Yazmin Smith had earbuds in her ears and was looking at her cellphone as she walked towards the tracks.

If you feel like you're too old to achieve your dreams or feel like your time has past, this post is for you. The other night I was reading the incredible life story of Colonel Sanders. If you're struggling with failure or feel you are too old to accomplish your dreams, you need to read this below... - At age 5 his father died. - His step-father and him had a bad relationship. - In seventh grade he dropped out of school. - At age 13 he left home. - By the age of 17 he had already lost 4 jobs. - He got married when he was 18 and had a son who died from infected tonsils. - Later his wife left him since he couldn't keep a job. - He joined the army, but was discharged 4 months later. - He was a railroad conductor, but got fired. - He applied for law school and got rejected. - He became a fireman and later got fired. - He became a lawyer, but lost his license after a courtroom brawl. - He became an insurance agent and again got fired. - At the age of 65 he retired his life up until this point was nothing but failure. - He decided to commit suicide, but he again failed. - One day he decided to write out a will, but instead of writing what he would pass on when he died he wrote down what he would accomplish with his life. - During the Great Depression he began serving chicken dishes out of his living quarters it became such a big hit that he opened a restaurant. - With his recipe he went door to door selling his chicken. He gained so much popularity that he was commissioned as Kentucky Colonel. - Later, he acquired a motel that he attached a restaurant to. That was burnt down by a fire shortly after. - He went back to work on his chicken recipe and got a job cooking - He later started the franchise Kentucky Fried Chicken and built his empire. - The story of Colonel Sanders is a powerful one of perseverance. No matter how many times you fail in life. No matter how old you become. You can always do what you have dreamed of. - Think if he would have given up after any of his failures. Think if he would of actually committed suicide. Think if at age 65 he stayed retired and just coasted until death. Never ever ever give up!!!: SUCCESSDIARIES YOU'RE NEVER TOO OLD TO BECOME WHAT YOU COULD HAVE BEEN If you feel like you're too old to achieve your dreams or feel like your time has past, this post is for you.
