Tueazee - I Know #Flyah Review

Tueazee is an exciting music group based in Augusta, GA, and they have been making music for about a year now.  Releasing music under the J Tizzle Muzic label, the group recently unveiled a new, exciting single titled “I Know.”The song is a great example of Tueazee’s pure and uncompromising combination of new and old-school hip-hop, making for a driven, direct and fast-paced feel that knows no compromises whatsoever.

The twenty short stories detail infamous events such as Napoleon's rise and fall to American women receiving rights to vote. Another of the short stories was about Maslow's Theory describing the five steps of life and achievements. This book is inspiring and gives insight into the mentality of many great people who contributed to society, helped others in times of need and become more self-aware. Alla talked about her time as a engineer being changed from constructing buildings to bridges with no guidance given to her. Even after transferring from Africa to U.S.A. for an engineering job, Alla was puzzled that she earned the job but she strive to achieve her goals. In life, dedication can be the breaking point of a successful venture and a reflection of the steps taken to get there. Alla also theorizes about a time that women felt uncomfortable in a …
