One Time For Ya Mind

Adjusting the rearview mirror once again, Davey drops a post on the “slim picking population” and how everyone needs a self-evaluation before becoming someone else’s problem. Very good read. Shouts to Mike and CultureLP. I won’t say much. Take heed.

“Slim Pickings” – Davey

Meanwhile, Pappy brings up one of the most repetitive topics in our culture, double standards.  Shining light on the standards that ring the loudest bells, Trey gives his raw opinion on the complaints. Again, tune into these short summer session for they can possible assist with building understanding. Seriously.

Video: Jay-Z Running all Towns

Two days ago, seeing the Made in America teaser had me… inquisitive. Not knowing if it was a music video for the record filmed through a kaleidoscope or a documentary, the Hova gawd spilled the beans by announcing the two-day Budweiser Made in America Music Festival. Jay stood side by side with the mayor of Philidelphia, Michael A. Nutter at a press conference mentioning the event is set for September 1st and 2nd, filled with 28 acts from hip-hop to jazz, and a portion of the proceeds will go to local non-profit organizations in Greater Philly and South Jerz through United Way. The Roots already hold it down for the Roots

Mind you, Barclays Center is due for opening at the end of September with Jay christening the stage first night.  Along with Rihanna, the two Roc Nation stars will star in BBC Radio 1 Hackney Weekend in London June 23-24; their cultural festival before the Olympic Games, starting July 27.

Hmph. 2012 summer will be realer than I thought.

Shouts to Rapdose on the footage.

Allow me to first introduce myself…

I’m Q. For those who already know me, wuddap doe! Newbies: Why hello there? I’m some redheaded jawn doing what I can how I can. In my other life I was a creole housewife living in Lousiana; hence the red top and the motherly mentality.  I love to bake, spell out accents, and express myself through sound. I believe I am a product of my culture. 80’s baby to the fullest though technically to the least.

I have a good understanding of how the world works. For me that is. The swindles, the fine print, the rewards. Not saying I know it all, but I know enough to manuver in the sewer that I’ve grown up in. Wanting to have a career in the music, I really live this. So you will see me rip apart a song, artist, production, or label as well as adore, fiend, and appreciate  it.

 Those born ’85-’91, this is for you. We are the future leaders of this thing we call the world. So what if our ambition and creativity is powered by drugs, music, and coonery. Greatness was always understood. Don’t matter how we get there, as long as we get there. It’s all a journey at the end of the day so make sure you look out the window, don’t want to miss the best part.
