Cop This....
Mix beauty, brains, spunk, sensuality,love/admiration, proud sense of self and social consciousness and you have "Just Me and a Mic." From the rhythmic female empowerment "I Am Queen" to jazzy rifts of "The Gift" Melissa JustMe Ellis takes you on a journey of social and seemingly personal issues that are surely relatable to all within earshot of this powerful and passionate collection of thoughts and expression. I'm happy to have the chance to add this awesome project to my collection, even more proud to be associated with such a beautifully talented humble spirit as Melissa. Peace, Blessings and continued success!!!!

A soundtrack of conciousness
This was a wonderful project to be a part of and witness at it's conception. Melissa Justme Ellis provided the narration to my original score to this movie that we've created. MeMe gave us highs, lows, peaks, valleys, made us cry, made us think, made us pump our fist, gave us a much need lift, told us our worth, held us accountable for our dirt, made us blush and made us smirk and started the CD off by letting our people know that we were first. I love that the words and the music does a symbiotic dance and stand in agreement like an equally yoked union. In all, I love how this album has variety. My personal favorites are the smooth and sexy pieces like Profess my love, Skin Deep, and when He speaks. I write this not just as the producer but as a fan and listener of Melissa " Justme" Ellis. I highly recommend this digital or physical album! P.O.P.

just amazing
To hear elegance, passion, and a playful vibrant tone take control of attention within earshot. I just got hold of this dope project just a few weeks ago and I am so surprised at the smooth range of topics and emotion. JustMe, is a phenom, and I look forward to when I can hear her live in the NorthEast region of the country, or at least a ticket to any of her shows, if not "JustMe" & this cd will continue to spend good times together.


Only Half Way Through CD... and I LOVE IT!
I'm always looking to support artists and have purchased items in the past and have often wanted a refund at times ... and I proudly say THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM!!! I'm glad I purchased the poet's cd and while I'm only HALFWAY through listening -- I had to share my thoughts on one particular track that my 16 year old son actually hit REPLAY on... #7 Young Brothas -- It spoke to MY CHILD DIRECTLY and after listening, he said "Geesh mom, she sounds just like you." So the confirmation of hearing what I constantly am preaching to my young man-in-training made the ENTIRE cd worth it to me!
Now moving on to a couple of my faves ... #4 HAIR PEACE... yeah, I dig that one!! and #9 was a little bit of a tear jerker for me, having lost my mom at 21, and now 20 years later... it has gotten easier -- but there is still a void -- like when I want to cry out to my momma for parental advice for her grandchildren, whom she never lived to see born.
Again -- only half way through -- and IT WAS WELL WORTH THE PURCHASE -- can't wait to jump back in the car, take a ride ... and JUST LISTEN!! Kudos!! Snaps!! Applause!!


I heard this beautiful artist perform LIVE in Atlanta at The Black Poetry Fest... and I was totally blown away! I'm so very glad her poetry and beauty has been captured and is available as a recording!!!! EXCELLENCE!!!
