    Historical Motown Records & Jack the Rapper w/ Author Walker Smith

    in Relationships

    Welcome to the QPKS Network! Today we welcome, Author Walker Smith to talk the Historical Motown Records, Jack the Rapper and more!


    ABOUT WALKER SMITH


    As the child of a jazz drummer and a book-addicted beatnik, Walker Smith grew up in a house filled with music and literature. The music bug bit first, and Walker was signed as a recording artist with the prestigious Casablanca label (under the name Bobbi Walker). But between studio sessions and appearances, she quietly pressed on with her creative writing and history studies. Three solo albums later, she walked away from the music business and headed for New York to pursue her real dream to write. She wrote interviews and articles for African Voices and Vertigo magazines, features for the Reel Sisters Film Festival, and a collaborative biography with black radio pioneer Jack the Rapper Gibson. After releasing her first historical novel  The Color Line , Walker Smith began work on what would   become her most personal novel--Bluestone Rondo.

    Brianna- Rapper

    in Entertainment

    This 19 year out South Carolina is taking the world by storm. Stay tuned.


    As an 19 year old, I’m always looking for unique and innovative ways to grab people’s attention. With Nas being my all time favorite rapper, I find it very hard to rap about only material things. I like to speak on the truth and real aspects in life. After doing this for about two years, I have released three mixtapes. I try to improve with each song I write and that’s my number one goal. The better the greater. I do want to bring out music that’s missing in the industry. Being a female I feel that there is a stereotype of females being weak MC’s these days. However, I want to change the stereotypes, bring back music that represents the ladies, but also relates to anyone. No matter the age, gender, or race. Music is love to me, and I want to spread that love across the world.
