Napoleon Da Legend 

 
Once in a millennium rapper, lyricist Napoleon Da Legend is a Paris-born, East African (Comoros) and Washington DC-raised, Brooklyn-based artist uses his voice as weapon of hope, social-critique, conquest and joy. N.D.L.’s innovative short-film “Wise Men” featuring the late great Sean Price quickly became a cult hit among Hip-Hop heads with its overt challenge of the music industry establishment. 

Following the release on his "Steal This Mixtape" series in 2016, Napoleon Da Legend has been touring in the US and in Europe. He has been featured on Statik Selektah's Show Off Radio show, Tony Touch's Toca Tuesdays, DJ Eclipse's Rap Is Outta Control and Sway in the Morning. N.D.L. later performed two shows on Center Stage at his first ever Essence Festival 2017 and was featured on the Recording Academy website and Revolt TV among others. In June 2017 he was invited to perform his buzz-hit "Black Privilege" on the Fox 5 News' Good Day DC program. He would then rock the stage at the prestigious Rocksteady 40th Anniversary on SummerStage in Central Park alongside of Mobb Deep and DJ Premier, as well as 2017 Bastille Day in Manhattan.

In 2018, he released “Tupacrypha”, a full-length Tupac Shakur (RIP) homage, "Brooklyn To Mulhouse" EP, on French Label Media-pop, "Path of a Warrior" album on UK label, Chopped Herring Records, "Steal This Mixtape 3", followed by Afrobeat, Dancehall and Hip-Hop album “Afrostreet” and recently “Steal This Mixtape 4”. His mix of social commentary with introspective sensibilities paint a unique story seldom told in rap music making him poised to be placed among the most highly regarded names in Hip-Hop.

Stephen Hill 

From plays and stand-up routines in front of his elementary school classmates; talent shows and statewide art competitions in middle school; to TV productions, and professional modeling gigs in high school and college, Stephen has always been a man of artistic expression. Upon graduating with honors in mass media/broadcasting from Hampton University, he began his professional career as a copier salesman in his native New York City. After a few years of door to door sales for Xerox Corp. by day and intense acting classes with famed coach Susan Batson by night, he received the fearful news that his mother had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Witnessing her fatal bout with the debilitating disease at the young age of 61 was the catalyst that thrust Stephen back into the artistic world. Having raised five children, the youngest of whom with Downs Syndrome, his mother never got the opportunity to fully express herself creatively. So Stephen honors her sacrifice by pursuing his acting career with physical and emotional vigor.

Armed with the memory of his mother, the blessing of his father, and the support of his tribe, Stephen soon left behind the perks of a steady paycheck, healthcare, and printing free headshots and scripts, to pursue acting full-time. After years of student/indie films, plays, film festival circuits, and continued study he developed a hard-earned reputation for solid work in drama, comedy, voice-over, and commercials #ByIndieMeansNecessary. His dedication has filled his resume with work on Law & Order SVU, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Political Animals, Blue Bloods, Boardwalk Empire, HBO’s Lewis & Clark, Luke Cage, among others. Stephen’s most recent work includes Steve McQueen’s feature film Widows, Terence Nance's HBO series Random Acts of Flyness, Manhood (The National Black Theater), and the Cary Fukunaga helmed Netflix series Maniac. Follow Stephen's social media accounts for BTS postings of his most recent work in the role of Theodore TC Calvin in the 2018 reboot of Magnum P.I.

Summer Treat: Pineapple mint basil popsicles enjoy !!!



Ingredients
  • 4 cups fresh pineapple, cubed
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil and mint leaves, loosely packed
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 pinch sea salt
Instructions
  1. Blend pineapple, maple syrup, and sea salt in a blender until mostly smooth.
  2. Add herbs and blend again until the herbs are speckling the pineapple puree. If you'd like the herbs to be invisible, continue blending until they disappear.
  3. Pour puree into popsicle molds and place in the freezer. If your mold doesn't come with handles and you're using wooden sticks, soak the sticks in water and insert them 1 hour into the freezing process so they'll stand straight.
  4. Freeze 4 hours or until completely solid.

Evie Rhodes

EVIE RHODES was born in Newark, New Jersey. She authored the critically acclaimed novel, Expired. Black Issues Book Review called Rhodes a master writer, gifted and skillful. Romantic Times Book Review said her work holds the reader’s attention as if the pages are magnetized. Evie is now taking her first step into theater with the workshop production of her stage play, Looking Through the Stained Glass Window. It is a witty and illuminating coming-of-age story about Crystal Waterman a forgotten, Black, female voice in 1992 during the AIDS epidemic. The explosive portrayal explores the cyclical effects of trauma and addiction through reflection and humor in the middle of Harlem’s Hip Hop era. Evie Rhodes is a Social Activist at heart, and her many works speak to her love of humanity.
