Side note...
Some of you are aware that I have not been active on here as much. Due to personal family reasons outside of this online realm, is why I have not been as active. Family always comes first before anything else, and sometimes it's good to have a break in awhile from everything. However, I have been on Instagram for those who follow me on there, so if you wanna check out my latest posts feel free to have a look! 😊
I will be updating posts soon, so please do make sure you keep your eyes out for the latest rare pics and news that has currently surfaced these past fews months. With Aaliyah in our hearts. Peace and love πŸ™πŸ½πŸ’š

[…] She was a really sweet person. We took about 10 pictures with her like we were doing a photo shoot! LOL. She had no problem with it. Class act. […] Tracy and I were standing outside the hotel when her van pulled up and Tracy said "That’s Aaliyah!” Then I said “No its not!” When I realized it was her, I said get the camera! LOL"

Aaliyah: Paris, 2001 (Rare Photo)


πŸ” via @kerribrownmusic on Facebook “My #tbt photo!!! In 2001 I was on a trip to Europe, and while in Paris, I ran into the singer Aaliyah by the ferris wheel at the end of Champs Elysees. Completely star stuck, as she was filming for MTV, we asked for a picture and she so sweetly said of course! One month later, her plane went down when she was leaving the Bahamas after shooting her last music video for "Rock The Boat”. This picture […] I have a blown up amazing quality shot on my wall. Only 22 years old and made such an amazing mark in the music industry. “If at first you don’t succeed, dust yourself off and try again…”
My heart πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ’”

Original sources are very important so that we can trace it back to the story and have better, high quality images! So yes it’s good to see, but crediting original sources is very important y'all, so whenever you guys tag, make sure it’s from a true source. That goes with anything! ✌🏽❤
