Jhené Aiko released an M.A.P Mission. (Movie, Album & Poetry Book). Also known as “Penny”, Aiko uses this M.A.P to navigate through the suffering of her brothers death.
She says “I never thought of him as a separate person but, as an extension of myself.”
Aiko also referes to herself as “Penny” in her new album named Trip, her Movie and also the poetry book 2Fish.
“This Map was made by me, for me. But I feel obligated to share because I know that I am not alone in my suffering. If there is one thing I’m sure of is that everyone on this planet is suffering. Not a single soul is immune to the pain of losing someone they love. The reality of this life is that at some point we will all lose someone we love. By sharing this M.A.P I hope I inspire others to be more present in the lives of the people they love. I hope this inspires others to share. “
“Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Jhené Aiko Efuru Chilombo has developed & refined a method of emoting through writing. 2Fish is a collection of intimate poems (and a few short stories) written by Chilombo from adolescence to adulthood, in no particular order. This book offers her thoughts in their most raw & honest form taken directly from a collection of notebooks she has kept since age 12.”
I’d like to talk about Jhené Aikos New Poetry Book named 2Fish. I heard she named her book 2Fish because she is a Pisces. The Pisces symbol is two fish facing different directions representing two different perspectives or personalities. Jhené Aiko, Also known as “Penny” describes the M.A.P as a journey to find inner peace & learn to deal with the death of her older brother.
Ever since her brother passed away, she has turned to her journals therapeutically. Since, Penny has gone on ‘Trips’ on her own peradventure with different kinds of drugs, hoping she might be able to reach him. I highly recommend that you READ her poetry book 2Fish, SEE her movie(down below), & LISTEN to her album because they are all impressively personal, compelling, linked & poetic!
Thank You for Reading.
