The bloody wedding dress of a bride either defines the death of her heart or the transition to a new love that can save her from pain. Gail Campbell drops her new visual from the 2019 award winning classic project "Bloody Waters". Exclusive to Heritage Hip-Hop, we get the first look into the mind and visual story of what Bloody Waters means to a person that has been mislead by the heart and has to overcome the sorry of defining what love is, looks like, and feels like. Shot by Al Jacobs of Black World Films, and produced by super producer Stan Ipkiss, You Don't Know Love shows the continuing story of Bloody Waters and we present to you Love in it's most horrifying and liberating expression ever shown by an artist that is telling her story vocally and visually from one note to one scene to one graphic conclusion.
Blerd-Hop was born on Heritage Hip-Hop after we went to our first Khem Fest 5 years ago. We saw the fusion of Hip-Hop and comics forming due to the rise of anime and comic book references returning back to the genre in high details. Within beats and punch lines people have referred back to the days of Spider-Man, Batman and other superheroes. Naseed Gifted bought the Khem Fest to the people that loved Comic books but wanted to see more than Caucasian superheroes in the world but to see more people of color in the genre as well. Now we see that there are many that feel the same way and they showed up and showed out at the 2019 Khem Fest.
This year the venue was in the Hahne Co. building in Newark, NJ and the fans were greeted by tables full of people that are creators of their own specific brands. There was a table for heroes that come from Africa, web series of superheroes based on people of color. There were heroes of East Indian descent, Puerto Rican decent, and books based on not only Science Fiction but on revolutionaries like The Black Panther Party, and also Hip-Hop characters. People who are deep thinkers and that are woke could also find heroes based on Khemetic foundations of thought to challenge the status quo of what is "traditional" when it comes to the make up of the motivation and background of what a hero is.
As a comic book fan I feel that the mainstream comic book companies have done a horrible job at creating good stories that teach and entertain the reader. The stories are recycled and independent companies are keeping the genre alive. Khem Fest gives people a chance to experience more than just the "norm" of characters and stories. With Luke Cage and Black Lightening being great hits on Netflix and CW11 the mind has opened to a lot of people on where can they find more heroes that represent them in the field of comics and literature. Khem Fest has helped to expose this by not only bringing books to the people but helping to expose People of Color that write books, create animated series and web series to the masses to be seen and heard.
Where many Comic Cons fail, Khem Fest succeed because they fused the genres with music to aid in the atmosphere. Live performances by Lyle Omolayo, Queen Legend Gail Campbell, Tha Gata Negrra, and The Ronin of Rap helped to aid in the culture of bridging music and comics together to solidify that Hip-Hop culture is not only music, but the expression of talent God has given you and how you sew those seeds back into your people and the community you share your gift with. In 2020 Khem Fest will be back and we invite you to come be apart of it. Not only that take the time to look for more outlets that produce heroes that reflect your face, and values in all media to learn and teach the generations that come after you about their importance and gifts they bring to not only comics but to life as a whole. We are our best heroes and now the world is watching and taking notice.

Tonight the world was introduced to the beginning of a new era of sound. Bloody Waters release party came and went making the world a more soulful and forgiving place. The world knows many people that can sing, but not too many people know of Gail Campbell. Tonight the world was introduced to Gail Campbell and a renewal of faith in music started to grow when music from her Debut album, Bloody Waters, started to play. The crowd swayed back and forth with joy in their hearts. Young women praised danced to the music giving God worship and praise for the creation of music that was delivered by Stan Ipkiss and Gail Campbell. The hood came out to celebrate and the listeners were given a reason to believe that real music still exist. I call this the Genesis because in the book of Genesis God began the world giving people the commandment to take control of the world and make it our own. Gail Campbell is taking the world ear by ear, soul by soul and giving them a renewed understanding of music coming from the soul, not a program director or someone telling you how to think, sound, or feel. When Gail danced with her mother to the classic track Overdose and brought out Tha Savior to rhyme over the gritty 70s dance track the crowd was moved by the soul and spirit that moved through out the room.
This night was a celebration not only for Gail Campbell to release her voice and emotion on music. This is the night that real music came back to the forefront and people were treated to not only the depth of emotions that came from Gail's inner self. We were all treated to her pain, her joy, her growth, and the genesis of her new life as healer through musical expression. If you crave good music go buy and stream Bloody Waters and contact Gail Campbell and tell her what that album has done for you. For 1 night in Montclair, NJ it made the world still and gave us a reason to rejoice at God's Plan for 1 soul.
