[Visual] Memories Back Then x T.I. + B.o.B. + Kendrick Lamar + Kris Stephens

I had to post this video because this is my ish. T.I.P., B.o.B. & Kendrick Lamar link up to share memories of past females in their lives while the beautiful songwriter, Kris Stephens, lays smooth vocals over beat produced by Maurice ‘Kenoe’ Jordan. T.I. has always had a great delivery so him opening this record was perfect. He explained the story of the hood jump I’m sure we all are familiar with.  B.o.B. did his thing  explaining how the one that got a way dipped because of groupie love and Kendrick came in for the finale with the bust down gold-digger  Shouts to that guy rippin’ everything. Every day I thank Compton for the sacrifice.

Blue Ivy Watches the Throne

Blue Ivy Watches the Throne

This picture speaks for itself.

Tons of rumors have been going around that Beyoncé is possibly pregnant with her second child. Blue Ivy reminds us that there is only room for 1 in her parents’ lives… at least for now. This little personalized chair was made for the Princess of Hip-Hop while she’s on tour for her mom’s Mrs. Carter World Tour.

(I’m just happy that someone finally did my little cousin’s hair and put her in some pink! She was starting to look very tomboyish. Always cute nonetheless.)

Oh, Kelly!

Kelly Rowland looks so good. SMH. She needs to be cut in slices and served with ice cream.”

– Charlamagne Tha God.

He wasn’t lying either.

Kelly Rowland is finally coming into her own and is representing for the slim thick girls, the chocolate sistas & good girls everywhere. She released the album cover for her fourth studio album, Talk A Good Game that will hit stores on June 18. I might have to buy the hard copy just to have the poster and hang it on my wall like it’s the late ’90s again.

Woo lawd.

[Visual] A$AP Ferg + A$AP Rocky + Schoolboy Q + Trinidad James + French Montana x |Behind the Scenes| Work Remix

I cannot wait until tomorrow to see the complete video of   Work Remix. A$AP Ferg is ah’chea. NY is ah’chea. Shouts to homie in the Coogi and hair bobos. Oh, Rocky was looking like Celie during his interview in the shade with the white collared shirt & one braid out. I love him though. Schoolboy Q, Bucket hat Puffy. They all look like they had a ball shooting this video. I’m tight I wasn’t there? oh.

[Visual] Kendrick Lamar – Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe |Director’s Cut|

 Kendrick Luh-Mahr drops a visual to the crowd’s favorite. Loving the all white everything for the funeral, turn up scene (always celebrate life), open field shots & of course Mike Epps. Oh dear, he would be the one to actually attempt to baptize someone in alcohol.  At the end of the video, “Death to Molly” appears in white. Could this be the b*tch that kills vibes? Who knows considering the MDMA’s popularity has been skipping hand-in-hand with Mary through this hip-hop lane. I hope it dies soon. People get influenced much more easy now and I’m tired of the alleged Molly sweats. (woo!) And since shorty can lead you into other things that won’t just kill your vibe, I’d be careful.

But hey, whatever your vice.

However, peep Schoolboy Q‘s snippet of Man of the Year at the end.

Ouuuh.

[Then & Now] Demi & Selena

I can openly admit that although I’m not officially a teenager any longer, I am still a fan of the teeny booper/pop tunes. Whether it’s One Direction, Miley Cyrus, or Justin Bieber— I love it all. These two young women are no exception.

Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez both got their early rise to stardom along some of my old time best friends Barney, BJ and Baby Bop. We probably didn’t know it was them because we were all the same age at that time but here’s a quick flashback:

Weren’t they just the cutest? Well, both girls will be turning 21 this year and definitely have their sexy, grown woman swag turned up to the MAX.

________________________________________________________

Demi Lovato will be releasing her fourth studio album, Demi on May 14th, 2013. She  released it on iTUNES for her die hard fans a week early. This album includes her smash first single, “Heart Attack.” The song has already debuted at number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100. “Heart Attack” currently holds the third-highest opening week sales of 2013 (selling over 215,000 units in the first week.) Number one was Justin Timberlake’s “Suit and Tie” and Ariana Grande’s “The Way.” Here’s a look of the video where Demi gets down and dirty…literally.

Between acting in roles such as Faith in the independent film, Spring Breaker and returning as Alex to the show-turned-movie that made her famous, Wizards of Waverly Place, and publicly dealing with her on-and-off again relationship with the famous pop singer, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez is a busy girl. Selena dropped the video for her latest single, “Come and Get It” off her first solo album titled Stars Dance.  There is no release date yet for this album but it be hit stores Summer 2013, just in time for her “Stars Dance” world tour that kicks off in Washington DC October 10th.

Who knew Barney and Friends would produce such megastars?

[Let’s Rap] Robin Thicke on The Breakfast Club

The incredible Robin Thicke graced the Power 105.1 studio  this morning. I must mention that waking up to him speaking with my favorite breakfast crew turnt up my morning.

Peacefully commenting on the much talked about  Justin Timberlake comparisons (both white, with similar soul music influences and married to actresses), his comical relationship with Kevin Hart (gun on my waist! straight face!), the gorgeous Paula Patton (“that’s my girl! my girl fights harder than I do. You’ont wanna mess with her”) and an upcoming short film, Mr. Thicke shared some great things with The Breakfast Club.

Most importantly was his take on R&B music right now:

“R&B has lost a lot of it because it’s not soulful anymore. everybody’s popping bottles and getting girls… no one has any invulnerability and soul music and what R&B was always about was being vulnerable for love, being vulnerable in society and talking about those problems and trying to find hope within it.”

PREACH! Shouting out Miguel for being great at delivering soulful music as well as mentioning Drake, Kanye West& Kendrick Lamar (“I think is the new god of lyricism right now.”) as his inspirations.

Love the fact that after dibbling into the pop side more, Robin Thicke appreciates and wants to create more of his original sound. I think it works extremely well. Excited for Blurred Lines.
