Originally posted on Global Grind:

D.C. native/L.A.-based singer Kelela has announced her new six song EP Hallucinogen and released an innovative new video for the project’s first offering, “The Message.”

It’s been 16 months since Kelela released her debut mixtape Cut 4 Me, which received favorable reviews. In a written explanation, Kelela revealed her forthcoming EP Hallucinogen will take people “on a journey through lust, longing, delirium, and ecstasy.”

Meanwhile, her Daniel Sannwald-directed “The Message” is described as “the stage that comes before lust, the darker realization of love; the rejection and amputation.” Kelela symbolizes this description by cutting off her locs in the thought-provoking music video.

CRESTLINE, Ohio- A man wearing a wig threatened a clerk during a Richland County robbery on Monday.

It happened just before 10 p.m. at the Dollar General on East Main Street in Crestline.

The Richland County Sheriff’s Office said a man, wearing “strange glasses” and a wig, demanded money from the register. The cashier told deputies he threatened to shoot her so she handed over all the cash.

Before fleeing, the suspect ordered the woman to lie on the ground and stay there for 20 minutes. The clerk yelled to her manager for help and called police.

Two deputies with K-9s searched the area, but did not find the suspect.

Anyone with information should call the major crimes unit at 419-774-5611.
