Dear ChiiNa,
My baby momma is so crazy it don't make no sense. My daughter has
been living with me for a little over six years and she refuses to take me
off of child support . Her excuse is that she isn't going to take me off
because if I had just stayed with her I wouldn't be on child support in
the first place. I honestly think she keeping my baby's money for her
other 3 kids. She hardly ever sees my daughter and when she does my
baby always comes back being mouthy saying her momma say she
don't have to listen to me . I don't know why this girl trying to make my
life hell . I hate the fact I had a baby with this damn girl and I'm tired of
her playing with my baby. What should I do? Please help!!
Dear Super Save A Hoe,
Im going to need you to toughen up and stop saving this trifling hoe.
Clearly she is a poor excuse for a mother and doesn't deserve to be one.
First things first you need to get your daughters records and file for
custody or shared custody which ever you prefer. Why you ask? You
got to stop paying this girl for nothing if you got your daughter twentyfour 7, why are you on child support!! I will say that it seems like you
are a great father but you need to make better decisions. Your daughter is young so of course she is going to be confused on who to listen to
its nothing to be alarmed about. Just make sure you correct her when
she gets home . It sounds like your baby momma is miserable and trifling. YES THERE ARE SOME TRIFLING BABY MOTHERS OUT HERE
TOO. Trust me I know!! She is probably just upset with you because she
knows she lost a good one. Maintain being respectful in front of your
daughter at all times . Remember that kids remember everything. I seriously hope everything works out for you dude .
Peace & Love,

ChiiNa

Let us know a little bit about who you


are?

Who is SHAI-GIRL? I am a sensitive,


humble, ambitious, intuition guided
person. I'm very laid back and observant and it comes off as being shy
but naturally I'm very silly and like to
crack jokes. It takes time for me to be
able to show who I am in my personal
demeanor probably because of my
struggle throughout the years socially,
which is funny because I have been told
by a psychic that I have a societal purpose. That wasn't news to me tho, I've
always wanted to change certain things
about society by just giving my take on
things and being more outspoken about
it. That is what being a recording artist
is about for me. Behind my calm and
sometimes standoffish nature is a woman with a lot of insight that I have gathered through the years that have helped
me in coping with the traumatic things

music.
Do you feel you get enough recognition in the local music scene? If not,
why do you think that is?

I do not get as much recognition I feel

new on the scene. That's what I have
been grinding to do, to be heard and
seen by a broader audience. In a way I

Do you feel like there are any biases
when it comes to how males are treated vs. how females are treated in the
industry?

There is definitely biases, especially in


image. Men can dress any way, act any
way and be supported. There are so so
many males and very few women when
Spring 2016

it comes to hip hop. Men are able to be


diverse but women are expected to just
be beautiful and sexy but that isn't realistic because there are different types of

Democrats wanted to keep it going, but in


2016, black people have such disgusts because we know them as the party of rich
white people. We know how the black
community cheered for Barack Obama
because hes a black democrat but will Ben
Carson get the same support from the
same community being that hes a black
republican? Through reading, some of the
policies that he proposes seem to be better
for the community than what Obama has
proposed while running or what he has
done since being in office. For example,
Carson has a decent economic plan and
instead of shuffling people on and off welfare, he wants to provide them with better
jobs so that they dont need it. He wants to

P.L.: Where is the name derived from?

my sons' first name Chayse. I decided to
spell is backwards. It's pronounced
[Es-Siah].
P.L.: So apparently were nosey as well
(LOL), we see the pictures you post of
you and your son all the time, how does
being a father fit into your schedule with
all of the professional hats that you
wear?
Troy: Not being a father to my son is
NOT an option. I dont even associate
with any deadbeats. There isnt a better
feeling than knowing there's someone in
the world who loves you unconditionally. I'm not going to lie, sometimes I use
my son for his energy (laughs). For example, if I've had a bad day, I'd go
straight to see my son or call him, because I know he's going to change my
mood INSTANTLY. Enough of the
"soggyness", but I also know that in order for me to be able to provide for him
& give him things he ask for, I have to
make a sacrifice. So for me, it's all about
balance and prioritizing.
P.L.: Do you plan on creating any other
lines/designs?
Troy: As of right now I'm just focusing
on this one project. I'm a novice in this
field and have a lot to learn.
P.L.: We know you from being a promoter and host, what made you transition into a designer?

understand the power of having a team
and delegating others to assist me. So
I'd say my style of promoting is in transition, from clubs to an actual BRAND
promoter. "Hollywood & Troy" was and
still is a brand, but its more of an ambiance associated with club parties,
"Esyahc Soles" is something tangible
people can see and wear.
P.L.: What were some of the major setbacks you experienced over the years?
Troy: Some of the major setbacks I've
experienced I would say would have to
be monies invested into events and
some relationships that were built, that
took time to build.
P.L.: How do you remain positive
through different hardships and experiences?
Troy: I'm able to remain positive
through hardships and different experiences because of my faith and trust in
God. I know what it feels like to be on
top and lose it all. So with that being
said, I'm prepared and not afraid to experience any hardships. One must be

you need the GOT TALENT? Concert


Series..The GOT TALENT? Concert Series started out as a music and fashion
showcase. We provided exposure for
artist, designers and models. But as we
were doing this over a few years, we noticed that these artist are really lost and
being taken advantage of.The industry
was selling them BIG DREAMS, and the
artist was buying everything in sight. A
Lot of these Artist could produce when
they needed to they were being robbed
of all there publishing and royalties. The
label would throw 50 grand in there faces and they would sign over everything.
Artist interested in participating in the
GOT TALENT? Concert Series can contact BIG TY @917-601-9743 or BIG P
@347-641-0561
