Music Artist Young D of Wealthy Civilians putting on for Baltimore, Maryland

Ranisha: What makes you more valuable than the other artists in your same market? Do you feel like you have competition? Why or why not.
Young D: I think what makes me more valuable is that I’m unique. I’m coming with my sound and delivery and I’m building my brand and buzz all alone, as far as competition I’ll always say I’m my only competition but I know Rap is a competitive sport so you have to stay on your toes, because you never know what someone is bringing to the table.

Ranisha: Who is your audience & target?
Young D: My audience and target are pre-adults and up age 19- and up because I get a lot of love from that age group. I feel that my music can touch all ages anytime the elders in my family and kids under 9 can recite a song I know I’ve created something good.

Ranisha: How do you like to reach ppl when making a connection? Is it through social media or do you rather pull up on them?

Young D: Social media is definitely the wave now, but I rather pull up and connect with the people. You know meeting a person online is one thing but actually getting to know you in person is another. You never know the impact you’ll have on a person unless you make the connection.


Ranisha: What is your lifestyle like?

Young D: My lifestyle is very laid back, I’m humble but a hungry individual, a person that lives by morals and principles, and I’m a guy that grinds 24/7. On the other hand, I definitely like to indulge in a little turn up here and there ….. lol


Ranisha: When it comes to the music what kind of skills do you bring to the table? What is your expertise?

Young D: I feel as tho I bring something to the table that a lot of artists can’t bring, you know I’ve been studying the game for a while and I’ve picked up different tactics to perfect my craft that a lot of artist lack. As far as the music goes I can say I definitely can create any genre of music, even though my style is more soulful,  but when I’m in that studio cooking you never know what comes out of the pot.


Ranisha: Who do you trust with your legacy and what do you want to be known for?

Young D: At this day an age I trust my mom with my legacy. I mean who would be more trustworthy other than the woman who birthed you. She knows about me more than I do lol …. but when it’s all said and done though I’ll leave everything to my beautiful baby girl Lyric. Lyric will own it all. I want to be known for being an individual that started from the bottom and climb the stairs while others took the elevator. Showing the world that anything is possible as long as you stay committed.


Ranisha: What can you see yourself doing for your community in the near future? What will that take? Is that something you always wanted to see done as a kid?

Young D: In the near future I can see myself opening centers for the youth, parks, recreational centers, giving back to schools, holding concerts and donating the money where it’s needed in my hometown. I feel as though some of the higher-ups here lack that sort of thing. It only happens when a big situation has occurred and then everyone is a hero. When in reality a hero should have his cape on 24/7.


Ranisha: Tell us about your up and coming EP you are working on and your earlier project? What should we expect from this project in the works?

Young D: I’m currently working on my new Ep Titled “To Whom It May Concern”. On this project, I’m basically going for the throne lol. I’m creating songs that when you play them through your stereo or whatever you’ll say this kid is undeniable. That’s the impact I wanna leave on my listeners every time. If you heard my last project “So Much More” you’ll know what to expect.


Ranisha: What do you want to say to those who look up to you as a word of encouragement to keep going and not give up?

Young D: I want to tell anybody who looks up to me, Thank You, that’s first and foremost but I also want to tell them that if you have a dream or goal you’re trying to reach you don’t stop until you get it. Anything is possible. A wise man once told me that, “the day you decide to quit could be the day you receive your big break” so you have to stay consistent and keep working.


Ranisha: When collaborating with other people what is it you look for in a person? Do you want a different style from yours? What has to be different?

Young D: When collaborating with an artist I love when an artist brings a different style to the table, it makes the song more organic and unique. I just want the artist to be as hungry as I am while we’re working. If we’re both working at the same level, it’s no way we shouldn’t create an extremely dope project.

The Significance​ of A Rose

Blossom as the Rose 

What are the odds I decided I post about roses during the month of February? It’s no coincidence I also want to ask women why do we expect flowers and roses from a man we are not in a committed relationship with? What does it mean for you to receive flowers from anyone? So pretty much you’re asking for traditional classic red roses because I doubt some men know the meaning of each color rose. Why can’t we buy our own flowers the way we like them instead of putting an expectation on a man who doesn’t even understand our vision. Stop demanding things from ppl you don’t even do for yourself.

For this half of the blog post, I’m here at one of my friend’s house after getting back from a day of shopping. All the Rose pictures are my own I was actually having fun in the grocery store taking them I probably creeped some ppl out by taking random pictures of roses. When the idea popped in my head I had to act on it right away. My friend said if someone gave her flowers it’s more than likely going to be roses but she’s not that big of a fan she’s the sunflower, daisies, lilacs are the best for her.

I chose roses because I think roses have more sentimental value they’re more heartfelt vs random flowers not everyone know that different color roses have their own meaning. it’s like oh flowers to where roses it’s more like “where you going with this” getting a red rose may sometimes mean more than just “I’m thinking of you” a Red Rose symbolizes Love & Romance expressing your love for someone without actually saying I love you but you mean I love you. Take a look at these roses and tell me what you think.

YELLOW: FRIENDSHIP | JOY | GOOD HEALTH

WHITE: MARRIAGE | SPIRITUALLY | NEW STARTS

A MIXTURE OF RED & WHITE

When was the last time you bought yourself some flowers just because?

XOXO Ranisha

 

Love Lounge Dating Blueprint Journal

The first steps toward transforming your dating life

I have agreed to review Love Lounge: A Journal for singles in exchange for a review. Views and opinions are my own. The journal is created to accompany her new coaching & matchmaking services set to roll out in 2018.

DE’VIZIA & COMPANY is a place where you can get dating tips, relationship advice, deals on services and products.

Have you ever had someone assist you in love, from matchmaking, dating, or maybe even family coaching? Now is the time to consider it.

LOVE LOUNGE has about 4 sections and 44 pages from Dating History – 1st Impression. One of my favorite “Quotes For The Heart” that is quoted in LOVE LOUNGE is “A bitter woman says “all men are the same” a wise woman decides to stop choosing the same type of guy” How real was that? I definitely agree. I believe having a standard will help you “stand” your ground to what you really want and stop going for the same type of guys.

There’s a question asking about our last date and details about our date. In my opinion I feel like this is a time where men are asking you out to eat instead of an actual date, because the “dinner” is a way to think they’re just taking it straight to 3rd base, but then most guys are not even going that far by asking you out anymore they just want to “Netflix and Chill” the last date I been on was in 2015 and it was nice to be taken out but it also turned me off for him to jokingly say “we could have gone Dutch” at the time I was like what’s that? It’s when you pay your half of the date. Then he also mentioned that we were not going to be doing this all the time I’m thinking like “excuse me” we are not even married and he’s already putting restrictions on our dates. I understand being broke in college but if you want to penny pinch through life leave me out of it.

Section 2 of LOVE LOUNGE is all about ME, MYSELF, & I . . .

I reflected on one of the questions. Did your partner give you hints to their unhappiness, challenges with communication, etc? I feel like when someone is done with you they are not looking to work things out whether you’re right or wrong they just want to leave. If someone wants to go let them it’s not a marriage you are trying to mend back together and even with that you still can’t force it I’m divorced I know. Not all men want you fighting for them.

Section 3 of LOVE LOUNGE is all about Writing The Vision . . .

I think this is a really fun section because you get to write out what you want. I want to ask married couples. How many of them wrote out what they wanted in their ideal mate? And actually, have been fulfilled with the traits they looked for. When you really think about it and ask yourself what is it about this person that I allowed their non-negotiables in my life? Do their non-negotiable makeup for who they are?

Here’s another fun exercise asking where do your ideal mate spend their leisure time? I never really thought to hang out where my ideal guy would be I guess depending on your type you’ll know whether you should be at the library or a sports bar. Not that I am the one to go to church and expect a man after service.

Section 4 of LOVE LOUNGE is all about The 1st Impression . . .

What kind of first impressions are you making?

One of my favorite things to do. Cut out styles that closely reflect my personal style It’s like making a mini style vision board. This turned on the lights in my head to think hmm… being mindful of how people (men) are perceiving me. Do I look presentable, are they turned away because I have a style that doesn’t match them, or maybe the women who want to be found but come out with scarves on their heads and pajamas (ikr) sidenote: this is my actual style and how I dress I didn’t make this up I went through a lot of magazines to find my style for less or more. I couldn’t fit everything.

And last but not least the 1st date tracker? Yeah, I know we gotta relive and backtrack our last 3 dates and no I don’t have plans on seeing any of them again.

Again DE’VIZIA & COMPANY journals are created to accompany her new coaching & matchmaking services set to roll out in 2018 and if you would like more info and this is something you believe you need that will help you on your dating journey stop by DE’VIZIA & COMPANY

Love Lounge Journal for Singles was a great accompanying resource to my previous “Wifing it Network” training with Pastor Cora Jakes Coleman teaching me how to become a great wife. I definitely recommend the journal to all Single Women. It is and will be helpful to you as well. I learned a lot about myself on why I stay to myself and rather not date and what I look for when I date. I’m telling you DE’VIZIA & COMPANY will make a difference in your dating life.
