Season Four: In Their Closet Featuring Lil O

Oreoluwa “Lil O” Magnus-Lawson first exploded onto the scene with “Can’t Stop,” a success-as-the-sweetest-revenge anthem that featured a young Destiny’s Child back before Beyoncé would go on to take over the world. As his name alone will tell you, physically, Houston rapper Lil O isn’t exactly the biggest artist on the scene, but he just might be the most important. I’ve known Lil O for over 27 years, so he is the BIGGEST rapper that I know! And I am so happy to introduce my forever friend to the podcast and take a walk down the past to learn why he is still a legend today.

Already an underground legend at this point, Lil O has only grown more and more impressive in the years since he released H-Town classic albums like Blood Money and Da Fat Rat Wit Da Cheeze. His sensation, Back Back, went viral after the global pandemic caused the whole work to distance at least six feet. We will take a listen to O’s greatest hits and a lesson about how he worked for his start in the music business.

It was “Can’t Stop” that caught the attention of the legendary DJ Screw who invited O back to the lab just hours after he’d dropped off a copy of the single in the midst of buying some of Screw’s notorious mixtapes. We celebrate the anniversary of June 27th and the success of all the Houston rappers that have made our city the music empire that it is, by starting this conversation with my dear friend, Lil O.

Enjoy the sounds and history in this podcast.

Season Four: In Their Closet Featuring Brandi Holmes Part 2

Brandi Holmes is a Makeup Artist, Skin Expert, a Singer and a Preachers Kid. (I added PK to her list of skills because having the right foundation is beyond skin deep.) Upon her return to the studio, we discuss answered prayers to marry, start new businesses, enhance new talents and she helps me discuss my long delayed conversation of divorce. Together we dive into relationships; with God and with our husbands, and evaluate ourselves as wives.

A few months ago Brandi and I enjoyed drinks and dinner to catch up. Covid had us all in the house so when social butterflies can flutter, we like to spread our wings. Our chat turned into us closing down the restaurant! In that conversation, Brandi mentioned that I needed to talk about my divorce and how awkward it is to just remove photos from social media without an explanation. I still wanted my privacy but I agreed that it needed to be done and here is the conversation that I share with you, with the help of Brandi. She also offers me some dating do’s and don’ts and we discuss our challenges in this new arena.

Sometimes you think that your prayers will lead you to the perfect person but the reality is that we are all broken. May we trust God to equip us with the skills to love others in their brokenness as well as identify and correct our own flaws that are made visible to us. Instead of concealing, I have chose healing. We hope that this message can help in your healing, too.
