Vixen Next Artist: Nyemiah Supreme

Name: Nyemiah SupremeNyemiah Supreme
Twitter: NyemiahSupreme
Instagram: NyemiahSupreme
Stage Name: Nyemiah is my real name. My actual first rap name was 'Supreme' which means the highest in authority; but, the name Supreme in Southside Jamaica, Queens [NYC] where I'm from is associated with a lot of negative things. I decided to merge it with my 1st name to give it my own flavor.
Age she wishes to remain forever: I think I would stay 5 years old. I feel like life is so easy as a child. Dreams were so pure and there was no such thing as fear which I think comes into play much more as you get older.  I vividly remember the 1st day of kindergarten. It was just the true feeling of free and fearless.

Insteresting Facts about Nyemiah: I eat lemons like someone would eat an orange and  I am a complete computer geek. All my friends and family always come to me to fix their electronics.

Dream Collaboration: Definitely Kanye West. He's an incredible creator and visionary. I absolutely love the energy he brings to his music, interviews, and just his overall art. I think collaborating with him musically would be amazing.
Her sound: I would call it hip-hop 2k13 and it will keep evolving. It's not the original 90's feel but there are hints of it through out my music, whether it's in the beat, the lyrics, or my flow—90's hip hop and r&b is a huge inspiration for my sound.
Musical Inspiration: Truth. My favorite topic to write about is love and the truth about the pain and happiness it brings. I like to rap about the issues between men and women, double standards, and relationships. Although music can be used to distract us from reality, so many people love it when it's about something real and honest that can be related to.  If I can spark a feeling of passion, I've done my job.
Her style: "Sexy-tomboy-cute". It's like a fusion of how ever I feel when I wake up. I love colorful sneakers—Jordans, Adidas, Converse—Timberlands and Doc Martens. I wear one piece jumpsuits, cat suits, cut up jeans, flannel shirts, cropped tops and accessories! I like dope chains, name plates, rings, and my gold grills. But my coolest and signature accessory is my long blonde 'supremacy' braid.
Her story: I started entertaining by background dancing when I got the opportunity to go on a Chris Brown tour when I was done with high school.  After that I got to a place where I didn't wanna stand behind someone anymore. I wanted to be the entertainer in front. I always loved hip hop and being on stage so, I made my decision to do just that. In a nutshell I started writing lyrics, picking out production, and booking studio time. The day I started, it became an everyday job for me. My big break was when Jim Jones asked me to do the hook on his song "Everybody Jones" and I've been going hard ever since. That moment really gave me the push I needed to get going.
On Fans: I want loyal and honest fans. I want them to ride with me through my ups and downs. If my song is whack I want that honest response and if it's great I want them going crazy. When I perform I love crowd participation so I need my fans to be there turned up, dancing, and yelling in the crowd. I represent the supremacy, which is basically what I refer to all people who aren't waiting for anyone's approval or co-sign to do what makes them happy.
What she wants you to take from her music: The diversity and the message. I don't want to be an artist who makes the same song over and over. Your gonna be surprised every time your hear and new Nyemiah Supreme track.  I rap about being in charge and knowing what I want for myself as a girl. I want my female listeners to feel the same—it's your world girl, own it!
About her EP There can be more than 1: The title is personal for my view on life and female hip hop. I'm very open minded and I consider every option before I make a decision. I hate to to be stuck in one way of thinking when there is more then one way to think. Also I feel like hip hop is an one-track mind when it comes to femcees. The theory that there can only be one at a time is bogus to me. At one point there were multiple females in hip hop—Missy Elliot, Foxy Brown, Lil Kim, Lauren Hill, Left Eye, and Da Brat. I feel like now is the time for that again, since we have so many new female MC's emerging. I hope my EP title is thought provoking and every one realizes its time to open your mind.
The legacy she wants to leave behind: I came. I saw. I conquered. I tried and I accomplished. A lot of people talk about it but, they are not really about it. I'm really about my dream and I go hard every day to make that happen. When I'm no longer here I want people to say, "Nye put that work in like no other."

Linking with Timbaland: My manager met with him about a year ago and played him some of my music and videos. He thought it was cool until he saw my "Aim, Shoot" video which really impressed him. He said "that's it right there, this is the one".  Timb had me come in the next day and start writing and recording to his beats less then 10 mins after meeting him. It was mind blowing because I'm such a huge fan of his production. Getting to work with the producer of Justin Timberlake, Missy Elliott, Aaliyah and Jay Z is incredible and still somewhat surreal to me.

Learning from Timb is really dope. At first I was quiet and observant, watching how he creates and seeing the masterpieces come to life. He showed me how to take my time when creating a song, be free and push the limit, and not to be afraid to stop and start over 10 times if necessary. Every single time you are creating, create like this is the last thing people could hear from you. He told me "you want the music to be for everybody, even the people in the farthest places of the world". So I started creating from a place any person could enjoy.

Kush & Splendor: 5 CBD Beauty Products That’ll Take Your Self-Care Routine From 0 To 100

Lotions, creams, and salves—oh my! With cannabidiol (CBD) popping up in just about every product you can imagine, the cannabis-infused beauty industry is clearly on the come-up. In fact, analysts predict that the “wellness” movement—as well as the legalization of Mary Jane across the world—will help rake in $25 billion globally in the next 10 years, according to Business Insider. That’s 15 percent of the $167 billion skincare market.

And what better way to up the ante on one’s wellness routine than with all-natural CBD? Just ask Dr. Lana Butner, naturopathic doctor and acupuncturist at NYC’s Modrn Sanctuary, who incorporates CBD in her treatments.

“CBD is a fantastic addition to acupuncture sessions for both its relaxation and anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving effects,” Butner shares with Vixen. “The calming effects of CBD allows for patients to deeply relax into the treatment and really tap into the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for rest, digestion and muscle repair/regeneration.”

She adds that CBD’s pain-relieving effects are “far-reaching,” from muscular and joint pains to migraines and arthritis—and even IBS and indigestion.

The magic lies in CBD’s ability to impact endocannabinoid receptor activity in our bodies. Without getting too wordy, our bodies come equipped with a system called the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is the HBIC over our sleep, appetite, pain and immune system response. Also known as cannabidiol, CBD teams up with this system to help reduce inflammation and interact with neurotransmitters. According to Healthline, CBD has also been scientifically shown to impact the brain’s receptors for serotonin, the neurotransmitter responsible for regulating our mood and social behavior.

All that said, it’s important to note that not all CBD products are created equal. Many brands cashing in on the green beauty wave use hemp seed oil, sometimes referred to as cannabis sativa seed oil, in place of CBD... which doesn’t make them any less great! Hemp seed oil is actually high in antioxidants, amino acids, and omega-3 and -6 fatty acids—all of which are thebomb.com for your skin.

“It’s generally viewed as a superfood and is great for adding nutritional value to your diet,” Ashley Lewis, co-founder of Fleur Marché, told Well and Good last month. “In terms of skin care, it’s known as a powerful moisturizer and skin softener that doesn’t clog pores or contribute to oily skin.”

However, when companies start marketing CBD and hemp oil as one-in-the-same, that’s when things get a bit tricky.

“The biggest issue is that hemp seed oil and CBD are two totally different compounds that come from different parts of the hemp plant, have different makeups, and different benefits,” Lewis added. “Marketing them as the same thing just isn’t accurate and does a disservice to consumers who are expecting certain benefits that they won’t get from hemp seed oil and who are often paying more for what they think is CBD.”

So if you’re looking to benefit from the perks specifically attributed to CBD, make sure you’re reading labels before buying, and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Hell, ask for a product’s test results, while you’re at it. It never hurts to be sure.

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, are you ready to see what all the hype is about? For this 4/20, we rounded up a few CBD (and hemp!)-infused products to help give your self-care routine a bit of a boost. Looks like your holiday just got that much kushier. You’re welcome!

Note: Data and regulations surrounding CBD and its use are still in development. That said, please don’t take anything written in this post as medical or legal advice, and definitely double check the laws in your state. Also, please do your body a favor and hit up your doctor before trying any new supplements. We’re just tryna look out for you. Okay? Okay. Read on.

Vivica A. Fox Explains Past Hesitance Behind 'Two Can Play That Game' Script

In a new interview with Essence, actress Vivica A. Fox discussed how she initially turned down her role in Two Can Play That Game based on the script. The established entertainer said it's her mission to ensure that black people are positively portrayed onscreen, and noticed the aforementioned film's prose didn't live up to those standards.

"I think the reason why—no I know the reason why—I've been doing this for such a long time is that I fight," Fox said. "When we did Two Can Play That Game, I fought for the way we talked, walked, the way we loved each other." The Set It Off actress continued to state that she consistently declined Two Can Play That Game before signing on to play the lead role. "Because the script, when I first got it, I turned it down three times because it just wasn't a good representation of African-Americans, so I fought them on everything," she noted. "I want to make sure that the images of African-Americans are as positive and as true as they can possibly be."

In 2001, the romantic comedy debuted to fanfare, boasting an all-star cast of Morris Chestnut, Mo'Nique, Anthony Anderson, Bobby Brown, Gabrielle Union, Wendy Raquel Robinson, and more. Directed by Mark Brown (Barbershop, Iverson, How To Be A Player), Fox plays a career driven person named Shante Smith who navigates a curveball when her boyfriend Keith Fenton (Chestnut) cheats on her with a co-worker.

After its release, Two Can Play That Game raked in over $22 million at the box office.

BET To Unveil Edible Billboard For 'Being Mary Jane' Wedding Finale

As Being Mary Jane comes to an end, BET is willing to offer fans a taste of what's to come in the series finale.

The network has enlisted the help of Ayesha Curry, celebrity cook and cookbook author, to create an edible billboard that also doubles as a wedding cake. The sweet treat will commemorate Mary Jane's (played by Gabrielle Union) nuptials in the two-hour series finale.

On April 20 from 1:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. at Brooklyn's Atlantic Terminal in New York, fans will be presented with the edible billboard. At the intersection of Ashland Place and Hanson Place, the closer Being Mary Jane enthusiasts get to the billboard the quicker they'll notice that the four-tiered wedding cake is created from individual boxes, each containing a slice of Curry's prized wedding cake.

All fans have to do is pull a box from the billboard, snap a picture for the 'Gram, take a bite and enjoy. Although lovers of the show won't be able to celebrate with Mary Jane herself, biting into a slice of her wedding cake, for free, is the next best thing.

Don't forget to tune into the series finale of Being Mary Jane on Tues. (April 23) at 8/7 c.
