UPDATE NEWS LETTER: What’s Going On With Luvleeh Poetiklocks?

Greetings all,

It has been a long minute since I have posted a new blog considering I’ve been busy as bee here in Charlotte, NC. I’d like to catch you up on where I’ve been and what is to come, so feel free to read on and click links and join me where you can along the way.

First, I relocated to Charlotte, NC from Newburgh, NY in December- the transition was one worth remembering lord knows- cause it took nearly 7 months to finalize everything with my mother’s health. The day before we shipped out my grandmother passed, so it postponed the move a week. Nevertheless, we’re here and things are moving smoothly.

I traveled to Durham,NC, ATL, Savannah, & Decator (GA) about a week after arriving. It was a much needed experience to celebrate my sister’s Masters & my own move. It was nice performing along the way and meeting wonderful people like Ceelo, Tommy Bottoms, Theresa Davis and many more well known poets, producers etc. We (my Spirit siStar Gemynii & I) then went on a retreat to Azule in Jan : New Danger Artist/Activist Retreat— A MUST HAVE EXPERIENCE that occurs almost every 2 months for artists/ writers of all backgrounds.

Below is the pic-story of my travels…

I found a new place to call home for poetry @ Poor Richard’s Book Shoppe, Charlotte, NC. I had the privilege of being a live visual artist for the March 2nd show. I also had the honor of co-hosting a CIAA event @ Societe where I also performed 2 of my pieces. Prior to these events I met some of QC’s hottest upcoming hip hop artists from the Famlord Ent crew. The Real Wudd aka HollyWudd & Yung FamLord who also hit the stage with me.

Which brings us to the current state- I am now working with Yung FamLord on a track with Lil T coming soon 2013. I was asked to be on a track with Dynasty- a poet from upstate NY. Be on the look out for more on that. I traveled back to NY to see family and friends & had the honor of stopping by my RIGHT HAND Bettina Gold Wilkerson “Open Mic in The Valley”. I featured in Silver Spring, MD as a vendor/ poet this past week at the start of April. I have an interview with SUPERINK.
