Roll and Coasters: Nice for What

R&Cs: Nice for What

I think that Drake deserves a lot of props for his woman-lauding, Lauryn-Hill-sampling, Southern-bounce-reviving hit single, “Nice for What”. What’s more, I can’t see any better way to drive the point home than the dope star-studded video directed by the talented future powerhouse Karena Evans. (Can you?) And all the women in the video commend much praise and admiration. The “Nice for What” visual treatment celebrates some outstanding women from the entertainment industry. There are so many words one could choose to best describe this feminine vanguard that has been inspiring and motivational through their activism, their endeavors and their professionalism. You ask, “They’re nice for what?” Here’s my modest attempt to explain…

…when I watched “Nice for What”, I saw:
– Consummate, resilient professionals: Michelle Rodriguez, Emma Roberts, Tracee Ellis Ross and Zoe Saldana-Perego;
– Future icons: Dej Loaf, Yara Shahidi, Bria Vinaite and Letitia Wright.
– Mavericks: Elizabeth Lejonhjärta, Victoria Lejonhjärta and Tiffany Haddish;
– Multidimensional creatives: Rashida Jones, Issa Rae, Syd and Olivia Wilde; and
– Trailblazers: Misty Copeland and Jourdan Dunn

I wrote as kid. (I'd die if you'd ever get your hands on those poems.) And I wrote as a teen. (We thought our raps would spearhead revolution.) I write these days to share my joys and perspectives. I am as subjective as they come. I found a bunch of blessed souls that are just as expressive. And Africa is all the better for it. (I think I never really changed.)
