Aaliyah: Focus With Jonathan Mannion: Hip Hop's Iconic Photos Revealed (Parts 1 to 4)

Perspective Edit Made By Yours Truly. Photography By Jonathan Mannion.
Sorry I've not been posting as much everyone! I was ill a few weeks back, plus it was my birthday a few days ago too ๐Ÿ™ˆ, but I am back, and ready to share everything pertaining to our beloved Babygirl! So for anyone who has missed out, you can keep tabs on our site! ๐Ÿ˜‰

As some of you may be aware, yesterday BET uploaded a few videos via Youtube, as well as BET.com, showcasing a 1 of 4 parts documentary titled 'Focus: Hip Hop's Iconic Photos Revealed', which features photographer Jonathan Mannion (one of my favourite photographers of all time!) who gave us a sneak peak into his archives (Aaliyah's last ever photoshoot before she passed away) of never before seen, rare images of Aaliyah (Videos 1 & 4). 

All I can say is wow! Once you watch these videos, you'll be in complete awe of how he captured such a fun, care free side to Lili (something which we rarely ever get to see in her photoshoots). And for all those who are Hip-Hop heads, all of these videos will definitely give you an even more in-depth look behind the scenes, as well as shared memories from Mannion himself.

I was unable to embed their video into the site, but here's the link! Hopefully they'll upload this to Youtube! ☺️ Also, as a little treat I was having fun by making perspective edits, so here are a few I have made so far...


As you can tell, they're not the best quality, but it gives us an idea as to how the images look at the right perspective. I plan to make a few more, so be sure to keep tabs via my Instagram and Tumblr page! Enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Aaliyah: Promoting 'One In A Million' Album In New Orleans (1997) Video Snippet (RARE)



๐Ÿ” via @adellhenderson101 “Here’s a #tbt with me and Aaliyah from 1997 that’ll never get old. She was promoting her instant classic ‘One in a Million’ album, and I was in college doing my local music video show 'Flexin…wit Adell’ on location in New Orleans long before YouTube. My bro @iamthahitman put me on that album early.@timbaland and @missymisdemeanorelliott turned a game changing corner sonically with this project which started a helluva run. I never saw babygirl again in person but I felt a huge reconnection to her at the time of her death in 2001 because I had just reviewed her self titled album 'Aaliyah’ for @YahooMusic. Shout out to @lyndseyparker and@billyjohnsonjr for looking out. So crazy to think it’s been 15 years. I’m definitely not new to this. #Aaliyah #RIP #MichiganMade #Flint #Detroit #Brooklyn #MSU #OG #HipHop #NewOrleans#YouTube #Yahoo #Flexin” | Thank you so much for sharing! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’š

Aaliyah Archives News: MUGA SHOZOKU Official Trailer | A Short Film By Rashad Haughton


Hey #TeamAaliyah be sure to check out this short, Sci-Fi Japanese film titled 'MUGA SHOZOKU'which is written and directed by Rashad Haughton ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ve always loved Japanese cinema! Some of the best Sci-Fi and Horror films I’ve ever seen, all come from Japan! There are literally so many classics! ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ’• For more details, the synopsis of the film based from the youtube video says...

"* * * Remi Winner Worldfest Houston
* * * Sitges Official Selection
* * * Asian Film Festival Dallas Official Selection
* * * Sapporo International Official Selection

In the wilderness of Iga, Japan, a young robotics student named, SHIN, ignores the warnings of his sensei, TAKU, and takes it upon himself to unleash the power of an ancient book called MUGA. This mysterious power is also desired by, RYU, of the ONISHI GROUP -- a military tech company that will destroy anything in its way to possess it."

Definitely sounds like something I would watch based on the description alone! I’m so proud of you Rashad! This looks dope already! I can't wait to see it! ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ‘ Peep the trailer below and be sure to spread the word! One love!

Jonathan Mannion - Shares Stories On Aaliyah, Biggie, DMX & Jay-Z


On the 15th anniversary of Aaliyah's passing, photographer Jonathan Mannion was featured on a live interview broadcast courtesy of VICE. Mannion talked about his early works, as well as personal, in-depth stories of iconic artists whom he worked with alongside his journey. He also mentions how he fell in love with photography, becoming one of the most important photographers throughout Hip-Hop history and culture.

I was very eager to see this video and noticed that it was only available for US citizens. I thought this was pretty unfair since something as interesting as this, should be shared with everyone. So I managed to pull a few strings for my international fans out there! Enjoy! ;)
