Repost via jonathanmannion: “BABY GIRL. I’m blessed to have these images to share with the world! This #NeverBeforeSeen image of #Aaliyahwas taken on the West side of NYC around 28th Street and 9th Ave. I like that this image represents an old NY with the playground from the 70s/80s. #Timeless. The original "YES” on the image I believe is her handwriting from marking up the contact sheets! She is missed! Big love to all of her family, friends and fans on this day. Remember to celebrate her life and to be joyful about her many beautiful contributions!!“ | From one of my favourite photographers! Thank you so much for sharing!

|Album artwork created by my beautiful sis 'Legacy Of Aaliyah' :D|
Only one day to go till Lili's Birthday, and I couldn't help but to start the Birthday celebrations early! ;) Here is a special dedication and tribute to our beloved Babygirl titled 'DANA' from my boy John Taylxr, who released 11 tracks in honor of our Queen's 37th Birthday tomorrow!
I'm so grateful to of had the priviledge of getting to know you, and would like to say that this is a beautiful dedication for Aaliyah, one which she would of been very proud of, as I am too! :o) Having just listened to it all, I can tell that you have taken a lot of time, hardwork and effort into every single track! There are so many favorites to choose from, but I particularly love the Intro, Try Again, Rock The Boat and We Need A Resolution! The creative process of mixing those beats is just too dope! Thank you so much for sharing with all of #TeamAaliyah.
I would also like to give a special shout out to my amazing sis Legacy Of Aaliyah for creating yet another amazing edit! Love the album cover hun! ;) I can see why you were chosen to be a part of such a special project! :o) But without further a due...peep the entire track list below, and happy listening! :D

As you all know, Aaliyah's birthday is approaching in the next few days, where we normally come across some amazing rare images, tribute mixes, videos, artwork etc... All of which I always look forward to seeing! :o) So I was merely just browsing away, and happened to come across a post Eric Seats posted via his Instagram page. Soon as I found out it was Aaliyah related, y'all know I was mad hype! lol :D And of course, I wanted to share this with you all!
I have to say...whilst listening to this interview I did get rather emotional when he talked about his memories on Aaliyah and Static Major. However, it was also quite refreshing to learn more about Mr. Seats as an individual alone, who I can honestly say is the most nicest, most humblest person I have come to know. I can definitely see why Aaliyah wanted to work with you! A big thank you for sharing your memories with us all and The Balance Room podcast for having the pleasure of interviewing Mr.Seats. You can listen to the full interview below here! ;)
Also since this is podcast related, some of you may be aware of this, but for those who are not, I would like to give a special out to my boy @AlmuqicmanLeon and my girl @ChocolateLatina for all their continued love and support. They both run a podcast called 'Your Best Friend On The Mic' touching on a wide range of interesting topics and of course, repping our Babygirl to the fullest! ;) You can check out all their latest podcast episodes via the link here. You definitely won't be disappointed! ;)
