Ashley B. is an aspiring Music Blogger from Edison, NJ. At 28Yrs old she is finally following her dream of Music Blogging!

Notorious BIG

Inspired by an Inspiration

"It was all a dream, I use to read Word Up magazine..." - Notorious B.I.G.

Since I could remember, music has always been a big influence in my life. My earliest memories are of the long car rides with my dad blasting his favorite oldie but goodies on the radio. Neither of us able to carry a tune but still bopping to the beats of the greatest artists of our time. My mom playing her favorite records throughout the house letting us know it's time to get the hell up and do some cleaning and my cousin who would often put music videos on and laugh as I tried my hardest to keep up with the latest dance moves... (& failed!).

Music has always been there for me. I've always had an ear for the "next best thing" often discovering the early records of artists who would years later become "mainstream stars". I always remembered thinking no body knew or cared about this artist that I've been following for years and overnight they are now the worlds most loved artist! It was always such a weird feeling. At about 18 I decided maybe I should start some sort of blog and begin to share with the world these new talented artist who are on their way up (In my opinion of course)... So I did.. & failed lol ! Not because I didn't have the knowledge or platform to do it, but at the time blogging was JUST becoming a thing and honestly my motivation and ambition at 18 was almost non-existent. So although I did a few blogs on artists like EB Wright (Eazy E's daughter) and got multiple responses from her and others in the industry thanking me for following and sharing their work I still just let my poor little dream dwindle into thin air.

Now 10 years later at 28 years old and the world of blogging now a total gold mine, I often find myself thinking about all the "what if's" in my life... What if I had kept up with my blog? What if I put my all into it like I should have? Would I now be living the life I've always dreamed? All signs are telling me its never too late to follow your heart and your dreams... So here I am... Again !

My first blog comes just a few days following the 20 year anniversary of The Notorious B.I.G.'s untimely passing, so I found it only fitting to name this post "It Was All A Dream" and for once actually take the first steps to following mine. I don't know who will read or follow this blog, find it interesting or educational, but at least THIS time I can say I gave it my all & there will be NO regrets! Thank you Biggie for inspiring my first post! We Love you!
