So Sad: 90’s Star Maia Campbell is Allegedly Back on Drugs

mm

Published

on

Over the weekend there was a disturbing video released of 90’s actress Maia Campbell indicating that she has relapsed and is back on drugs. For those who do not know who Maia Campbell is, she was an actress in the 90’s who was in some of our favorite movies, TV shows, and music videos like In the House, South Central, Poetic Justice, singer Tyrese’s Sweet Lady and Lately music videos. Maia was deemed one of the most beautiful women in the entertainment industry, unfortunately, things went downhill.

Maia’s mother, profound author, Bebe Campbell revealed that the actress suffered from bipolar disorder and was to take medication. I truly think Maia went on a destructive path after her mother passed away in 2006. She stopped taking her bi-polar medication and started to self-medicate with hard care drugs such as crystal meth and crack cocaine and lost custody of her daughter. Maia was no longer receiving praise for her beauty and acting talent but rather in the news for her run-ins with the law and erratic behavior. I did not know things were that bad for Maia until I saw the mug shot a couple years ago and almost did not even recognize her due to her alarming transformation.

Eventually, things started to look promising for Maia, in 2012 she appeared on Iyanla’s Fix My Life and revealed she was living in a sober house, taking her bipolar meds, and even started to reconnect with her teenage daughter. She started to look like the Maia we grew to love in the 90’s. A few years passed and I guess Maia lost the battle to her addiction (like most addicts do). Some man posted a video of Maia looking real disheveled, unkept, and even missing a tooth. She was at a gas station in Atlanta looking for some drugs and talking all over the place. It was really unfortunate that this man was willing to post the footage of Maia in this condition but it was even more disheartening seeing this beautiful woman is destroying her life in front of our eyes.

At the end of the day, I hope that Maia is able to get the help that she needs not only for herself but for her daughter’s sake. Like I said in a previous article, mental illness is real and people who suffer from it should not self-medicate with hardcore drugs but take the necessary actions to get well.

Update: LLCoolJ is trying to reach out to his Mai Campbell. He posted a tweet that was later deleted.

 

Do you think LLCoolJ is serious about getting Maia Campbell some help?

    Wow! This is so sad! I will be praying for this young lady. The guy that told her to pump his gas and recording her is TRASH! The girl clearly needs help! But he found humor in recording her! Why can’t we support each other as black people? Very sad! She will be in my prayers!

All of This is Yours, The Series, Takes Off!

mm

Published

on

Discover the world through the eyes of the children who live in its four corners!

In an era plagued by hatred and hyper-nationalism, an ebullient teacher takes young viewers on a global journey. Along the way, she’ll share the ways that children in vastly different cultures live, learn and experience their world. Costa Rica to Capetown. 13 episodes/13 international destinations. Adventure, learning, hilarity and joy ensue in the global community.

Short Summary

All of This Is Yours provides young audiences with the educational tools they need to begin creating the world they want to live in as global citizens through an episodic journey filled with unique cultural experiences and practical lessons that children can use in their everyday lives. The campaign will raise money for a pilot episode which will take Robin to San Jose Costa Rica where she will meet Amanda, a young girl ready to share her life, and her extended family, with the world.

Robin Hancock has been an avid traveler all her life. While working on a doctorate in education, she got the idea to create a series that blended her love for travel with her passion for early childhood ed. Her life’s work examines the ways that identifying as a global citizen can empower children to walk in the world with confidence, pride in their communities and awareness of their positions as members of a large and vibrant global community.

This is Robin’s passion project and her heart’s desire for the last ten years has been to make this series a reality. Your contribution to the creation of the pilot episode will contribute to a field desperately in need of new and exciting voices. No gift is too small (or too big)!!

The Impact

Nowhere on television is there a travel series that is  1) hosted by a woman of color 2) geared towards educating children and 3) focused on teaching global citizenship. The travel genre remains a deeply segregated space and very few series in the genre are created intentionally for children. This series will counter the negative messages of division and hyper-nationalism that are so prevalent in our society. Our goals for the series are to:

– Provide the (near absent) representation of central characters of color in the travel show genre.

– Provide a travel series that is geared towards young children in a genre that is tailored almost exclusively to adults.

– Create an educational platform for children to learn about the world through observing the experiences of other children like them who live in and negotiate that world as well.

– Create a context where children are learning the primary tenets of Global Citizenship early in life.

– Challenge the messages of separation and division currently being taught through our government, media and social spaces.

Ways You Can Help

DONATE!!!!

Please make a LOT of noise about this project. You can do that in a number of ways:

  • Post this on all of your social media pages
  • Circulate it to ALL of your friends and social networks
  • share in your frequently visited spaces
  • Stand on corners and knock on doors (just kidding…kind of…)

Alleged Abuser Rapper XXXTentacion Pronounced Dead

mm

Published

on

Broward Co. Sherriff Department pronounced controversial rapper XXXTentacion dead today in Miami. Witnesses say that he had no pulse at the scene. The shooting happened while he was shopping for motorcycles and things took a turn for the worst. People on the scene reported seeing a black SUV leaving the scene of the crime.

According to the dispatch call the suspects were described as 2 black males wearing hoodies, and the shooter was wearing a red mask.

The car has been confirmed as a black Dodge Journey, with dark tint and black wheels.

2:14 PM PT — Witnesses told cops a Louis Vuitton bag was taken from XXX’s vehicle.

1:57 PM PT — Additional dispatch audio has revealed XXX was transported as a “Level 1” trauma patient … dispatchers described him as comatose. via TMZ

Audio of the 911 dispatch has been obtained by TMZ.

XXXTentacion was experiencing a lot of commercial success even with his troubled past being brought to light. In an interview with Grandmaison’s YouTube podcast, No Jumper, we were given a bit of insight into just how violent his past really was. In this interview, the rapper details how he almost killed his cellmate who he assumed was gay because he was staring at him.

XXXTentacion: So I’m like strangling him, and he’s like leaking, leaking, leaking type shit, and I’m strangling him so he doesn’t scream
 Don’t think I’m trying to be clichĂ© or a fucking weirdo when I say this, but I was going crazy. Like, I smear his blood on my face, in my hands, I got it in my nails, bro, I had it all over me.

Grandmaison: War paint. That’s tight.

 

A year ago he tweeted this.

“Next time make sure you kill me so I can’t talk shit.”

 

 

 

 

WARNING GRAPHIC VIDEO AHEAD!

 

 

 

Will you be mourning his death?
