WHAT IT DO WITH LUE: Tamiko Kirkland

It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood and this is What It Do! This week I want to shout-out my girl and the very, very funny comedian Tamiko Kirkland, straight out of COMPTON.

This talented young lady is the TRUTH. She is a loving wife and mother who is slaying folks all over the Inland Empire and beyond with the funnies. How they say keeping it real, that’s exactly what she does.

She is not afraid to talk about her personal relationships in her sets. Tamiko has a unique way of capturing the audience through her sassiness mixed with a little gangsta’, which keeps the crowd laughing. I have seen folks fall out of their chairs with laughter after she has told a joke. She can go there if need be too. Her joke about the SMART CAR is one of my favorites.

You can catch her performance this month at our LUE Productions “TOP COOK COMPETTION/COMEDY FUNDRAISER” as a judge on Friday, October 24 in San Bernardino at 114 S. Arrowhead Avenue. Tickets are on sale now for 8 bucks. Don’t miss out! You can find her performing in Barstow and Victorville this month as well.

I need everyone to pay attention to the name “TAMIKO KIRKLAND”! A COMEDY QUEEN ON THE RISE! I say it all the time that comedy is good for the soul. Laughter is something that is needed in everyone’s life. It’s a great stress reliever. Until next week!

LUE PRODUCTIONS: ARTIST SPOTLIGHT, AARON SWIFT

So, who will it be this week folks! Ya’ girl is back and Aaron Swift is What It Do! The first time I heard him spit, I was like, okay then. His style and flavor is definitely UNFORGETTABLE and UNTOUCHABLE.

Aaron Block, known as Swift, was born in 1982 at Gardena memorial. This talented artist grew up listening to artists such as Ice cubeDigital Underground, and other well-known legends in the industry. Swift developed the talent for writing poetry before ever knowing how to write music. After the passing of his beautiful mother Jean Shaneatha Hall in 1991, Swift found a new way to express himself which was putting his poetry into bars and making Hip-Hop music.

Since then he has developed in every aspect and is known for his witty metaphors and catchy hooks.  In 1999, Swift was fully confident in his delivery and decided he was going to let the world know what he is capable of, but some were still skeptical as to how versatile he was, but that didn’t stop him from pursuing dreams.  Skipping a couple rough patches and shady deals with record labels and management, Swift has come into his own, working with artists which include Tony TouchWestside BuggSylk-E-FyneDirty BirdyWay2Much, and many others. Swift is currently running a full studio production company called Swifts Production and is currently the CEO of an upcoming filming company called OnMyMama.tv. Please check out his music on face book and YouTube. Till next time, Peace & Blessings!
