FROM BRICK CITY TO MECCA GLOBAL
Posted at  in Interviews, New Releases interview done by [ FIERCE ]

“Grafton Ave projects in Brick City is where we lived when I was growing up. We didn’t know we didn’t have it. We were broke living in the ghetto. We weren’t homeless but sometimes we wen’t hungry.”-Mecca GloBal

**************************

No B.S…..this interview is by far my favorite. I wished everyone could have been on the phone I was speaking with Mecca. I honestly felt like she was an older sister. Same struggles just a different hood. I love when I am able to be in the presence of someone and I am able to feed off of their positive energy and learn. This woman is so humble and honest. She tells the truth, she is who she is and you have to respect that. You honestly do not get that a lot in this industry. This is a woman, that even though the odds might have seemed against her, she made a away. I thank her for the time that we spent on the phone, and she might not know this, but she has left a lasting impression on my life. And also I have to shout out Scamma Moe out of Newark, NJ, Brick City as well as Shine from Jersey, Shaquan Baker, Wahida Clark, DJ Kay Slay, and CeCe Vance. -Fierce

***************************

Fierce: Hi Mecca how are you doing?

Mecca: I’m good. I apologize I am running late I was in a meeting.

Fierce: You were born Sharonda Baker, where did the name Mecca GloBal come from?

Mecca: First of all my middle name is ‘Mecca’, and when I ran the streets I used alias. I added ‘Global’ because I knew that’s what I would be. I wasn’t thinking local and when I began rapping, I used Mecca.

Fierce: You were originally a solo artist back in the late 90’s, were you a singer or rapper and what happened?

Mecca: I was a rapper and I did not stop rapping I just flipped it into writing. The label I was signed to at the time had a distribution deal. It was a lot of politics behind the scenes. I was able to flip my skills from rapping to writing and use my skills the right way.

Fierce: With the industry being what it is now, are you glad you are no longer an artist?

Mecca: I actually am glad, I am able to use my talents in more ways than one. What’s dope with writing is that we all have a book or books inside of us that people can relate to. The drama, the baby mama drama, the late night calls that you read about in the urban books. It’s a wonderful thing to be able to relate to books. I encourage you all to read if you’re already not.

Fierce: How did you link up with DJ Kay Slay?

Mecca: I’ve been writing for him since 2010. I reached out to Kay Slay before I even came to his magazine for another magazine I was writing for who will remain nameless. I am cut from a different cloth and I will bow out gracefully. I called him and said I wanted to write for him and he called me back and said “yeah.” Certain ones are real niggas, I am from Newark, New jersey and they’re realer ones in the streets than in the industry. DJ Kay Slay is a real one. I’ve been writing with him since 2010 and he plugged me in with some of the artist that I feature on my tv show.

Fierce: Tell us about your TV Show in Newark NJ. Is it able to be streamed for someone who may not reside in Newark?

Mecca: It’s through CableVision In Brick City (Newark, New Jersey) on channel 19, we play independent artist music, videos, and spot light new artist. I’ve been so busy lately so I’ve been sending repeat videos to play or mainstream but the show is original.

Fierce: You also volunteer your time speaking to the youth, mentoring, and feeding the homeless. How does that make you feel when you’re able to give back and how important is that to you?

Mecca: First of all of mentoring the youth and feeding the homeless is something we’re suppose to do, it’s not something that we talk about. With the Big Sister Little Sister program I am a part of, I go there on Saturday mornings to mentor the girls. We are suppose to mentor our girls and it is important to give back and not forget where we came from. You don’t have to be a celebrity to give back or mentor either. Just go do it.

Fierce:What’s next for you?

Mecca: I want to expand my TV Show and also turn my book, The Heat, into a movie. I am also relaunching my radio show along with my book, magazine, and blog. Shout out to Wahida Clark. She’s another real one. I self published my first 3 books before linking up with Wahida Clark.

Fierce: What would you like your legacy to be?

Mecca: The only thing I want them to say is she was a real female from Newark, NJ. Remember she gave back, she was humble, and didn’t think she was better than anyone else. Everything my name is/was attached to I was humble. I want them to say I was a human being who gave back and cared. When you come from the streets, dating drug dealers, the flashy stuff doesn’t impress me. Show your face in the hood, give back. Put some of these kids through college.

Fierce: Is there any last positive words you want to end with?

Mecca: I was a teenage mother. We want to be grown and fast and we need to talk to our girls, these girls and mentor them. I am glad I had my son young; he’s now an adult doing his own thing working on Shades of Blue and OITNB. So to all the teenage mothers out there, make sure to keep your head up and raise your kids.

===============================================================================================================================================================

Mecca Global has been doing her thing from the streets of New Jersey to New York. Just like her heroes Queen Latifah and Salt and Peppa she was out and about living the life and in the midst of the hustlers and dope boys.  Growing up fast exposed her to things firsthand that her peers only heard about and she credits the streets for keeping her focused and giving her a colorful cast of characters to  draw on for material for her literary endeavors. From the drug corridors of the East Coast Mecca Global journeyed down to the Black Mecca of Atlanta and let her inner artist come out. In the atmosphere of creativity that exists in the ATL she started writing and continued with her social butterfly persona, making connections and getting know in the entertainment world. Besides writing she started rapping with some fanfare, taking her talents to new heights. But at the end of the day she quotes Jay-Z, I’m not a rapper, I’m a hustler. Just so happen I know how to rap. Back in New York she set to writing her novel Heat and hooked up with the Queen of Thug Lit fiction, Wahida Clark. Together they devised a plan to bring Mecca Global’s literary talents to the world. But don’t let us tell it. Here is the Mecca Global exclusive-

Why did you decide to write a book?

 I decided to write this book Heat last year. I had already self published 3 books before in the past the years 2004, 2012, 2013 Heat code of the streets. Sold the books out my trunk, and a few stores. But it was not until after I nurtured my craft of writing when I decided I wanted to do another book. But I did my research this time around on WHO I wanted to publish with.  Wahida Clark been doing her thing in the book game, and she from the streets, so she understands my style of writing one hundred percent! So  it was a no-brainer.

What is your book about?

Without giving too much of the book away –  it’s  about a hood love story.  Heat is from a decent family, fascinated by certain type of street dudes, Dope boys from the trap. The book shows you the other side beyond the flashy, money, and clothes. It’s focused on the drama that comes along with a certain type of lifestyle. Heat does not know  the extent of how deep Samad  is in the streets. He is one  of the most ruthless, dangerous,  arrogant type of drug dealers. Over time she starts to see his other side behind closed doors. Which is not  the person she fell in love with.

 

Why should someone read your book? 

Well first of all they should read my book because  it’s official, a page turner from the first chapter to the last because I know what type of books I like to read that keep my attention.  The editor Linda did not go easy on me either, during the process making sure she sent my book back to change anything boring! Second of all Wahida Clark set the bar so high making sure it’s right and on the level of the quality  type of books you expect when you pick up any book with Wahida Clark name on it. I take my writing serious, and I take constructive criticism even more serious. Just off GP making sure I deliver A page turner  Heat is worth the read to keep you interested.  Not to mention, whenever  you see my name MECCAGLOBAL  attached to anything  regarding WRITING  its QUALITY!  I make sure I write what I like to read. This writing shit is not a game, not a Hobby for me. So you will get Quality work!

Would you classify your book as urban fiction, why or why not?

I would classify Heat  as urban STREET fiction because regardless of what state you are  from everybody can relate to relationships. No relationship is perfect. There will be drama at some point,  maybe a chick calling your man phone or vice versa you need  to scream on his ass for acting thirsty with another chick making you look stupid out here!  If you ever lost a  loved one  to violence in the streets, the pain and  heartache of any type of tragedy is universal.

How did you get the name Mecca Global?

I started rapping under that name Mecca and, when my record deal fell through I started writing for a different magazine doing music reviews, and write ups under MeccaGloBal. I just added the name GLOBAL to the end of my name knowing one day I’m not just going to be local in my own hometown … So in other words just speaking it into existence…Global..

What does getting published mean to you?

Getting your work published and getting your work out there to people feels great.  I love my craft of writing, so from the first time I had my writing published in the first magazine I wrote for doing music reviews, I also had my first book self published by then too. I left that magazine and started writing for Straight Stuntin Magazine in 2010 my columns and the artist interviews in every issue.  I take pride in my work it  feels great seeing your work not only in books, but in a magazine also.

MECCAGLOBAL COLUMN

==============================================================================

How did you get down with Wahida?

I actually reached out to Wahida I called her directly and let her know what I was trying to do with my writing and she was official from the first phone call. She set up a meeting for me to come to her office,  Long story short  by the  2nd meeting  we put our heads together, that was 1 year ago August 2014 — fast forward now Heat is here, she kept her word.  And now the world is getting Heat the street Series stay tuned for more…

What is next for Mecca Global?

I’m  going to keep Executive Producing with my TV show, been on cablevision for 6 years and counting channel 19 out in Newark New Jersey Saturday nights 11 pm.   It’s  a music video show.   I play Independent artist music videos and I do artist interviews viral video interviews. I air it on my TV show along with their music videos. I come out and cover events (Photography still shots, video footage recording your events. I am going to continue writing for Straight Stuntin Magazine. My blog SBakerMediaGroup.com  I’m a blogger when I feel like it.  I been busy  with my writing.  My  street series books Heat coming now with Wahida Clark Presents.  Maybe this upcoming year  I will focus on a relationship I’m single but these men out here– I don’t know I’m not with all this soft stuff / glittery sneakers and lip gloss men looking more pretty than us women. — Thank you for this interview.  I appreciate it. Shout out to Shaquan Baker, Shout out to  WCP. Shout out to DJ KAY SLAY –  Straight Stuntin Magazine, and all the day 1 supporters, and believers. I appreciate all of you!
