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.)

[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?

[Bars of the Day] Money Trees x K. Dot xx Jay Rock

I’ve been waking to this song for some days now and it’s so necessary to be today’s pick. Last night during the last Presidential debate, one of my followers mentioned Mitt Romney saying “you just lost another debate, ya bish” so it was only right I quoted Kendrick ,“A silver spoon I know you come from, ya biishh.” (BTW Please vote, don’t fall into the art of peer pressure when it comes to “not caring” about your future in this country/world because you do count and WILL be affected.) With that being said, here’s los bars:

Hot sauce all in our Top Ramen, ya biiishh (ya biiish)
Parked the car then we start rhymin’, ya biiishh (ya biiish)/
The only thing we had to free our mind (free our mind)
Then freeze that verse when we see dolla signs (see dolla signs)/
You looking like an easy come up, ya biiishh (ya biiish)
A silver spoon I know you come from, ya biiishh (ya biiish)/
And that’s a lifestyle that we never knew
Go at a reverend for the revenue/

Besides me loving every song in the movie, this one gets a lot of repeats. This record is one that screams relative situations in our culture. Hustle by any means necessary. Jay said, “if I need it, imma get it however, God help me.” Banks shouted, “I die for a bill, believe in the dolla’, for the chips, anyone gets it, even Estrada.”  And K. Dot explains it in a song with the most nonchalant, but straight-forward attitude with a hook letting us know a dollar can easily influence a decision.

It go Halle Berry or hallelujah
Pick your poison tell me what you doin?/
Everybody gon’ respect the shooter,
But the one in front of the gun lives forever/
And I been hustlin’ all day, this a way, that a way
Through canals and alleyways, just to say/
Money trees is the perfect place for shade and tha’s just how I feel
A dollar might, just fuck your main bitch that’s just how I feel/
A dollar might, say fuck them niggas that you came with tha’s just how I feel
A dollar might, just make that lane switch tha’s just how I feel/
A dollar might, turn to a million and we all rich tha’s just how I feel

Shouts to DJ Dahi on the beat and Jay Rock‘s verse was cool. Gotta appreciate the way Money Trees explains the motive of the situation in “Art of Peer Pressure.” I am grateful for artist who make all of their music connect and Kendrick is so amazing at telling his story in a way that you must listen to it all to circle back to the connections so it can hit you like, “ohhhhhhh.” (Not saying other artist don’t; if you listen to Kendrick like I do, you know what I mean)  But I mean what do I know? I just live this hip-hop/music shit.

tha’s jus’ how I feel.

[Bars of the Day] Drag-On x Spit These Bars

Now if you don’t know me personally, you don’t know how much of a thug I am. Duh. But today’s pick for Bars of the Day solidifies my G. When I think of songs like this, it reminds me how much I live and breathe hip-hop culture on all of its levels. The whole Ruff Ryders movement had most of us screaming “Ruff Raaahhduuhhhz” and trying to pop wheelies on whatever allowed us. I remember always bumping my mom’s Opposite of H2O heaavyyy. To this day, I spit “Spit These Bars” off the top as if it was released within the last two years. Swizz blessed the hook and it was perfect for our 8-10 year old asses to sing along considering mothereffer would have easily fit perfectly.  Drag-On’s voice was similar to DMX, but a bit calmer; flow was nice nevertheless. The record was just…. Double R. Daws really it. Slick lyrics, raw beat, hood party track.

A-yo I spit these baaars to make ya head shake
Fuck bitches ’til the bed break/
Let’s see how much lead you can take
Never let a nigga pay for what I give away/
We can all share
Clip to my waist it’s all spare/
So run dammit, run 
When I bust my gun/
I miss none-
Put y’all in critical condition/
I’m the-talk’uhduh town when it comes to fuckin’ bitches
Or- layin’ niggas down/
Drag bust the most rounds

It took me so much not to write out all the lyrics and the video got me excited. *looks for a four wheeler.* Check it out.

Sings *do my laydaays, run this uhh-uhh? yes-they-do-run this mutha-uhh-uhh.*

Jheni Aiko @ SOBs 10/19

:Emoji praise hands 10x:

AHHH!! I have been waiting for this moment for too long. I remember the B2K Remixes Vol.1 and Jhene Aiko had some records on that jawnt. I vividly remember though,  her on Pandemonium! features and “Dog” and No L.O.V.E. was. my. shit. Now recently this beautiful being has been the songstress of the West Coast collaborating on tracks with Schoolboy Q, Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, and others. Sailing Souls melts me every time. A mixtape that was written from the heart of a sailing soul. With her late big bro Miyagi‘s angel right beside her, Jhene’s strength and perseverance is on the high. And the talk on the low is that the Souled Out Queen will be at SOBs in NYC this Friday night!

Ugh. uh. Ah. (I’m dramatic, you’ll get used to it, trust.) NYC has been anticipating this and I’m sure it will please us all. Special guest that night will include Roc Nation’s Bridget Kelly and the dynamic music duo, Christian Rich.

Shouts to CMJ Festival! The lineup is love. Appreciate your team for appreciating new talent.

Yeezy turned a nice 35 years today. We thank you for the last 11 years that you have made incredible music (publicly). Whether it was from all 5 of your platinum albums or the production you handed to many of our favorite artists, doing five beats a day for three summers did you well. From cheers to the ROC to toasting assholes, you have never failed me. We , your true fans, get you and that’s really all that matters. The little brother to my idol and my fake cousin, We love you Louis Vuitton Don! Enjoy and give thanks.
