This Valentine’s Day is a cool for me… even though I don’t have a partner this go round. But, I didn’t let a lack of romantic love stop my creative juices from flowing; and honestly, they were probably intensified by the relationship I’ve been building with myself. One tradition I did want to continue regardless of my involvement, was create special, culturally significant Valentines that my Hoteps and hip-hop heads could understand. Taking song lyrics from some of my favorite artists (Lil Kim, Left Eye, Eve, and Migos) and combining them with cosmic elements was fun for me and allowed me to think about love in a totally different way. It’s bigger than a day dedicated to chocolate and flowers. Love is all there is.
Get into these exclusive Valentines and share them with someone you love, even if that person is yourself:
