It's been a long time coming...

Wow, it has been quite the hiatus, hasn't it?

I'm just shooting out this quick little post to tell the masses that I will be slowly, but surely, getting this blog back in order.

I've missed you all dearly. Thanks to everyone who has and still are checking up on me. Much love, and see ya soon!

Andre 3000 trumps Weezy

Green Light - John Legend Ft Andre 3000

Big ups to my boy Patrick over at Get Your Own for putting me up on this song. This will most definitely be my new jam!
And you're right Pat....Andre over Weezy, easily.

Spazzing out

Earlier this month I randomly ended up at the shoot for N.E.R.D.'s "SpaZ" video. Pretty much are a few pics:




And yes, Pharrell is more attractive in person. I no longer care if the man is over 30...I'd break him off something crucial! haha

As Seen On TMZ

So you would never know this, but I've always had this fascination with 'little people.' I don't know if maybe it's because I'm a taller girl, but I've always been pretty amazed that they are just like you and I...but just smaller. But does that mean that EVERYTHING about a little person is small??? If you get my drift....
I may be weird, but Verne Troyer aka Mini Me has got my mind racing these days. Check out this story from TMZ:


Verne Troyer has filed a $20 million lawsuit, claiming TMZ violated his rights by publishing and airing portions of his sex tape.

In the suit, filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in downtown L.A., Troyer claims TMZ violated his privacy rights and infringed on his copyright and trademark by running portions of the tape on TMZ TV and He also alleges TMZ violated his right of publicity and misappropriated his name and likeness.

Troyer says the tape was stolen and ended up in the hands of Kevin Blatt, the guy who distributed "One Night in Paris." Blatt is also named as a defendant.

In addition to damages, Troyer wants an injunction prohibiting further dissemination of the video.

I mean, of course little people have sex too....but until I saw clips from his sex tape, it never really hit me that little people have sex too! And Mini Me must not be so "mini" after all since his girl looks to be about 5'6"....on her back anyway.

We gone show you how to hustle...

About a year ago, I happened to stumble across this really catchy song called 'Day n Night' by a fella named Kid Cudi. I took an immediate liking to it, even gave it the elite honor of being my profile song on myspace (now you know that's special). But, that was that. Times changed, new profile songs stepped up their game, and I never heard from that Kid Cudi guy again.....until today. I swear, I was just doing my usual browsing, checking in on the usual sites and blogs or what not, and KC was getting so much love! Shout outs left and was crazy. Talk about being on your grind though...and that's what it's seriously all about. If you really want something, if you really believe in your dream....go ahead and go after that shit. But don't just try and go after it, you better DO it. If some people act like they don't want to hear you, snatch that option from them and MAKE them hear you. Be in control of what you do, because it's no secret....NO ONE can DO YOU better than you can.

With that said, let me go ahead and shout out some peeps:



Yeah, you probably remember the interview I did with this fella awhile ago. Well, I'm back to tell you that there's more where that came from! This kid stays on his hustle, and I'm here to tell you to look out for his first project titled 'The 99' Lakers LP" on July 19th!



Unfortunately, I never got the chance to get my interview with this kid, but I still gotta show love anyway because he pretty much embodies the true definition of 'staying on your grind'. If you haven't already, go and visit to download his project, The Birth.

I'm SO sorry

I know it's been quite awhile since my last sincerest apologies.
I don't even know where to much has happened over these past couple of weeks. So here is my short & quick run through of things I will further expand on in later posts:

1. The Carter III...less than mediocre. But then, I already knew that it would be.
2. Usher's new album...definitely in no way better than Confessions.
3. Seeing Sounds....dopeness.
4. Shawn Chrystopher dropped his debut EP on June 3rd....its a MUST download. An interview is still in the works, don't fret people.
5. Possibly an upcoming interview for the blog with Inglewood's finest, C-San.
6. I need to repair my iPod.
7. Lakers v. Celtics.

There's so much more, and don't worry, I will cover it all.

Los Angeles Fever...


This is life people. Look at Fish draining Parker of all of his powers. That's how LA gangsters roll.

Game 2, Lakers vs. Spurs....tonight.
Be there.

Attention all wannabe players

So my girls & I just had to say it:

When you're out doing "your thing," please keep in mind that it's a very small world.

If you're gonna play the game, play it better than that. Keep your shit tight man.
Real talk.

Thank the heavens!

So a lot of folks have been coming to me asking about new music, artists they should listen to, just basically in search of some good music because they're sick and tired of the same ol', same ol'. People, I feel your pain!

But just when you thought all hope was lost, I'm here to tell you that your prayers have been answered! And you can thank the one and only Shawn Chrystopher for that.

His debut EP, No One Knows You, drops June 3rd with the first single "Me" due to be released soon. And trust me, you ALL need to cop that. The cover artwork is sick...and best believe the music is sicker.


Here's a little taste with one of his latest freestyles..which isn't on the EP, but dope nonetheless.

Hmm....possible interview here on the blog with Shawn Chrys himself sometime soon?
Cross your fingers & Stay tuned kids!!!!

If you don't know by now....

Rissa Riss is the shit, shit, shiiiiiiit!
Hahaha...sorry, I crack myself up sometimes.

Anywho, here are a couple pics from last Friday, when I modeled in The Freshest Kids on the Block Hip Hop Fashion show.




Why weren't you there?
Your bad!

I believe that children are our future

Because of a conversation I had yesterday with a friend, I'm now, more than ever, convinced that kids truly rule the world.

You see, kids dominate everything. They are the reason why music is censored on the airwaves. They are the reason why there are 5 second delays during live broadcasts over the television. They are the reason why you have to wait until the wee hours of the night to get your dose of BET uncut. Seriously, they control everything.

Specifically, they have began to slowly rule the music industry...when it comes to record sales anyway. And when you think about it, that's MAJOR. Artists, no matter how much they may say they're making music because they love it & it's not about numbers and blah blah blah, make music to make a PROFIT. Every artists wants to sell a crazy amount of records. Every artists wants to go platinum, triple platinum, or diamond, because that's what they've dreamt of their entire lives.

But, seriously, when was the last time YOU honestly bought a record from a legitimate store? Yeah, it's been awhile right? But, you know who is out there buying albums? Those parents of those snotty nosed, sticky fingered, angelic kids.

So, in essence, in order to sell and put up crazy numbers, artists need to tap into that Disney market, brainwash these bubblegum fiends, and milk these parents for all they're worth.

Look at Miley Cyrus' rich ass. Hannah Montana is her golden ticket, and she's cashing in on it every opportunity that she gets.


I know what you aspiring artists are thinking, it's not all about the money right? You don't want to go against YOUR music and sell out to sell records, right? Well, that's completely fine. I'm not knocking that in the least...I actually encourage it. Go ahead and be completely happy with being broke, making the music that you want to make for yourself and your friends, and only selling those records to yourself and your friends.

And I'm out.

If you haven't heard it by now...

Here's some of that new new for you.

You're welcome.

Jeezy ft. Kanye

This makes me really wish that I had a voice synthesizer for my personal use in my everyday life.

And, Ye...if you miss Alexis that much, just call two were my IT couple, right behind Bey-Z. I'm rooting for your don't let me down.

I know I'm a little late...

But if you don't have this album, go ahead and cop that.

Gnarls Barkley- The Odd Couple.
Just for those days when you're feeling a bit...out of this world.

Madonna got Jungle Fever...

Being that Madonna is a veteran in the game, she's obviously a very smart woman. And being that she's been so successful for the entire span of her career, it's no overstatement when I say she knows exactly what to do to keep her style fresh, and keep her records profitable.
Thus, on her new album, Hard Candy (due to release April 29th), the 'Queen of Reinvention' teamed up with Kanye and Pharrell on this nice 'Beat Goes On' track. Take a listen kiddos...I know you'll dig it. It's something that everyone can definitely groove to. Kanye gets down too...of course.


I'm kind of intrigued now. There's some production by Timbo as well...Madonna might have some tricks up her sleeve with this now.

I know I'm going to hell for this...

But, is that her hearing aid that falls out of her ear around 55 seconds?
How embarrassing...

And why would that lady lie to her like that?
"You look so cute."
Seriously? You couldn't think of anything better, and more realistic, to say to her? This is the girl's first steps of freedom in ages...come on now.

Anywho...Foxy is supposed to be releasing an album this year. Let's see what incarceration has done to inspire the Ill Na Na.

Oh and, here's her first freestyle after being released.

I'm hopnig we don't see her on the next season of Miss Rap Supreme right next to Khia's old rugged ass.

One more time please Wayne...

So, I guess he doesn't want to make a statement.

And seriously? June 10th? With all this delay Wayne, this album better be climactic.

To all my L.A. friends...

Who will be going to Kanye's concert this week, I just want to let you know that I hate you dearly.


Have fun and take plenty of pictures for me!
(Even though I will secretly despise you as you're gloating and boasting about how incredible it was.)

Real Music

Yesterday, to my surprise and pure honor, Mulatto performed at CSUN. Ahhh, I couldn't even begin to tell you how real these guys are. They really do go hard.
Some of my favorite parts included their cover of Mint Condition's 'Pretty Brown Eyes' and the Kanye instant classic, 'Flashing Lights.'

I can honestly say that those guys are the absolute truth.
If you're not up on the greatest band ever, check them out at


And trust me, they're even more amazing LIVE!
They truly are bringing real music back.

Trojan Love

USC Springfest

Saturday, April 12th.

12:00 p.m.

Lupe Fiasco and De La Soul are on the roster to perform.

Be there. It's FREE people!

I'll Definitely Be Here...

And you should be here too!



Get your tickets here!

I just don't get it

Seriously Papoose, I really don't get it.

Answer that for me please.

I guess jailhouse love is where it's at.


I'm still waiting for someone to jump out and yell "Siiiiike!"

Anyday now...

I don't wanna wake up from you

If you haven't heard it by now, here's a new track from my girl Beyonce. The song was leaked a few days ago, here's what B had to say on her site:

Yesterday, “Beautiful Nightmare,” a demo I’ve been working on for possible inclusion on my next album leaked on some websites. I want to thank all my fans for the positive response to the song, but I want to tell you that this is just a work in progress. It is not my time to put out new music. If you really want to hear some really great music now, you have to support my girls Kelly, Michelle and my sister Solange. Kelly just re-released her album digitally in the US, so check out “Ms. Kelly: Diva Deluxe.” Michelle is about to put out the first single, “We Break The Dawn,” from her album and Solange’s single, “I Decided,” is already one of my favorites.


This is exactly why B is such a star. Listening to this song, it doesn't sound like typical Beyonce, but it still works. I love that she's never afraid to branch out and try new things and new sounds. I'm very interested in where she's going with this...

Beautiful Nightmare- Beyonce

You go get yours, and I'mma get Mine

Here's a few new tracks from that awesome talent, Estelle, who I told you guys about awhile back.


You know, for once, I would really love it if Swizz Beatz would shut the hell up. Stop featuring yourself on every track you produce dude. Can you give me the opportunity to read the damn credits to find out you produced it instead of yelling your life away on every song?
Seems like a bit of an attention whore if you ask me.

Anyway, check it out kiddos.

Shine- Estelle

And peep this one out too; It's featuring your man Cee Lo.

My New Obsession

I have a confession to make, and please don't judge me.

I'm a closet Danity Kane fanatic.

I really don't know how this happened because I'm usually not the one to pay any mind to any of Diddy's shenanigans. But, for once, I think he got something right. If you haven't copped their latest album, Welcome to the Dollhouse, you need to hurry up and be put on game. I seriously listen to it everyday. It goes further than any pop girl group has ever gone before. Yes, I vouch for Danity Kane.


I feel so much better now that I've gotten that off my chest. I'm no longer living a lie.

Here's one of my many favorite tracks off of the album. Listen to this beat arrangement...I love it.

I'm a Beast

I don't know how many of you have heard about the whole Lebron and Vogue controversy. Basically, there have been many raised eyebrows and complete chastisement towards Vogue for their latest cover, featuring superstar athlete Lebron James holding supermodel Gisele Bundchen. The problem is that some feel as though the way the basketball star was depicted was racially charged. They feel as though he was made out to look like the monstrous King Kong rescuing this blonde-haired, fair-skinned woman.

I don't know, by looking at it, I can definitely see the whole beastly ape similarity. Plus, I know that the editors over at Vogue knew exactly what they were doing by picking that particular photo, out of many other photos, to be the cover. Yet, then again, Lebron is a beast, and I say that with complete respect.

Hmmm, it can go either way for me. What do you think?

Public Service Announcement


There has been an alarming, drastic increase in 'thirstiness' over these past few days. If you, or anyone that you know, start to get that thirsty feeling, you need to handle it immediately! There's no need for thirsty boys & girls in the world; it makes my life a lot harder.

Cop you a Sprite to obey your thirst kid.


You do the hokie pokie 'til you turn your life around

If you haven't heard it by now, here's some new Outkast for you. This shit is crazy. If you don't feel it, then I'm not feeling you! haha I'm just kidding.

No, but seriously.

Royal Flush- Outkast ft. Raekwon

Now do it for the Ladies

Here's some new music for my hot mamas when you're out in the club, doing your thing!

Christine K.- I got a Boyfriend

K-young- Do it

Danity Kane ft. Missy- Bad Girl

And I don't know about you, but I'm starting to believe that Diddy's brainwashing techniques combined with MTV's overpublicizing methods actually work, because I'm planning on copping this Danity Kane album...even thinking about getting that Day 26.

New PAC-DIV!!!

You know I had to show my boys some love, especially since they represent the best coast, aka the WestCoast! This is the latest track & video from Pacific Division.I saw it a few days ago, and it stuck. So if you haven't heard/seen it by now, here you go! You're welcome!

Just a year ago you fell in love with the flow. Now you just like the Rap Game, in love with the dough

Get to Know: H.O.P.E.

In the world of Hip-Hop, the words hustlin' and grindin' are terms thrown around freely. Every up-and-coming rapper says they're 'doing their thing' or however they'd like to phrase it, all in the hopes of taking the throne and becoming the 'best rapper alive.' Yeah...a lot of them talk a big game. However, Compton native, H.O.P.E., can actually talk the talk, but with the skills to back it up. With a drive and determination that's simply unrivaled by his peers, and with an effortless 'leading man' capability, this guy is already on the track to becoming bigger than big. The 21-year-old, born Marquis Wright, sat down with The B.B. Rose Scenario and gave us an honest peek into the person behind the mic:


B.B. Rose: So the last time we talked, you were working on a few new tracks for your new album, and things were pretty 'stressful.' That was a couple weeks ago, so how's everything with that coming along now?

Right now everything is just how they should be, you know? All the stress comes from the fact that you're taking something that’s YOU and making it everyone else’s. It’s not the business that stresses me, it’s more so the creative side. But the project is coming along great; just imagine what I’mma say next.

Is it true that you're also working on a new mixtape?

‘Mixtape’ is a tainted name to me. 'Street Album'. That’s what the last one [“Fresh Hell”] was, so the same applies to this next one. I’m big on titles and names. I don’t even consider myself a ‘rapper’ a lot of the times. It’s embarrassing. Why would I put myself in the same category as a lot of these other dudes? It’s all low quality, so I titled this next project "Follow The Leader". you obviously consider yourself a 'leader.' What qualifies you to be one? And what qualities are other up-and-comers lacking?

You tell me. Everyone raps, right? There’s over a million rappers in the city alone. And this is just L.A. Now multiply that. A lot of these other guys are just great mimics. Take that and put a backwards hat on them and there you go, "Rapper". But creatively, in my opinion, no one is doing it for me, with the exceptions of LITE and CIRE. Most of everyone else sucks if you ask me. Some of them get passes because I’m cool with them, but most of them are just bad rappers in general. But in their head they’re tight, they’re cutting edge. In my opinion, these other guys listen too much if you ask me. you've been apart of the indie Fresh 2 Def label basically since it began. Do you feel as though f2d has what it takes to get you to the level you want to eventually reach in the industry?

Yes, and we will. We have good chemistry over here. It’s a family.

The fact that f2d is a family is something you're quite vocal about, even made a song about it. But isn't it true that an artist recently left the label because of you getting 'better treatment' and being more favored than other artists on the label?

Okay, the REAL questions huh (Laugh). No, our roster is still the same unless you know something I don’t know. We’re all young, and some of us are more advanced than others, some have a more direct approach than others. But the support is still there. "Better treatment" sounds like jealousy, and we have none of that over here.

I feel lets take a step back to your last street album 'Fresh Hell.'Your 'The Life' track has to be one of the most open and honest songs ever. In it, you talk about so much, and there's even talks of abortion....can you further explain what that's about and is that story personal to you?

Well that song just happened. At the time, I was given the beat, and when I heard it, all these feelings came to mind. I honestly went through at least seven different verses before I chose those three. They all needed to fit. First verse was about both a girl and how us rappers romanticize Hip-Hop and the "Game". That was the last verse I came up with actually. But the last one, of course, was the most heart felt one. Someone I knew just had an abortion and, I don’t know if you know what they do, but that shit is bonkers. So I wanted to tell that side of the story from my perspective. The anguish-- the hurt of such a hard decision. It makes you appreciate shit a little more.

I wrote that in the dark by the way (Laugh).

Yeah, well it definitely struck a chord. So, let's get personal. What was your childhood like?

Regular. I fell in love with everything as a kid, as a kid should.

Hold on, let me ask you a question. You heard ‘Fresh Hell’, it’s pretty advanced right? What do YOU think of it?

(Laugh) Ok...well yeah, I think it's pretty advanced. There’s some great beat selections...and lyrically, I feel like it's quite amazing.

Well thank you; I aim to please.

(Laugh) I'm sure you do. But back to what I was you had a 'regular' childhood. How was your relationship with your family?

Regular. Mom and Dad type stuff. Brothers, sisters, and cousins, and some more shit.

So you do have a good relationship with your pops?

We’re good.

Just good? Last time we spoke, you didn't know where he was...

He's alive. We're good.

We speak through people

I long has your relationship been that way?

We’re still on good terms. I’m grown now. I’m on my own.

You're grown now...and in the past year or so, you've gotten into a bit of 'grown' trouble with the law. Can you tell me about that?

Well, I’m on probation now. I'll be all right. I went out my mind briefly but I’m back. When you jeopardize your freedom by your own doing, it makes you take a step back. I was right in the middle of recording ‘Fresh Hell’ too. And that place kills anything you have in you. But I'm straight now.

“That place” being jail, right?

CCU/Jail. We'll just call it "Jail"

Well, I guess you aren’t a great rapper until you have your run in with the law...

I guess so.

So 'Follow the Leader' is your new do you think it will top 'Fresh Hell'?

‘Fresh Hell’ has nothing to do with this next project. ‘Follow the Leader’ is something new. New producers, new rhymes, and a new sound. I’ve been feeling stale since the last one came out. Plus, in my opinion, that void needs to be filled right now as far as us regionally. Some of these other guys misrepresent the city in so many ways it’s crazy.

Speaking of your sound...even though you represent Compton, when people hear you, they don't get that typical 'westcoast' style from you. Why do you think that is? And was that a deliberate decision on your part?

That’s funny, Kurupt is from Philly, and he's the most "westcoast" sounding MC out there to me. Snoop's whole family is from Mississippi and Pac was from everywhere. As a fan, the guys I listened to may come out from time to time too.
I’m big on ‘Blueprint’ and Pac.

Pac was the first rapper that caught my attention creatively.

So would you say that you’re heavily influenced by Pac?

Yes. Being a Compton kid, hell yeah.

I feel you...earlier when you said you're “big on Blueprint,” you were talking about the Hov album, right?

Yep. That’s the one that did it for me. Made me wanna rap. The people that knew me for rapping knew I was the best then. But hearing those 15 songs was the biggest inspiration boost ever.

I definitely feel you on that...but you were careful to say you're big on Blueprint instead of being big on Jay. Which is funny to me since some say you have a way with words like Jay. So how do you feel about him as an artist?

Jay is a great artist. He has the best musical catalogue in Hip-Hop, bar none. He has a dope mind. a recent interview you did over at Urbansteez, you said that “hip-hop has conditioned its fans to have tunnel vision.” Further break that down for me.

Yeah it has. Like, I used to listen to both Big and Pac. I listen to Big and Nas. But now, Clipse fans don’t listen to Wayne, Jadakiss fans don’t listen to 50. It’s all different now. Everything is so segregated. Like, you even said I don’t sound like a traditional Cali rapper. I don’t know, most people feel it though. It’s hard to describe. And it’s been going on for so long now, that it’s normal. The fun is almost being taken out of the music kinda.

Yeah it is...but hopefully you're here to bring it back. What's your overall mission in this 'rap game'?

Good Music and Conquering All.

That was good...You have anything else you want to say?

I’m the best.


To hear some of H.O.P.E.'s music, to find out about upcoming shows, or to find out how to get a copy of his last mixtape, Fresh Hell, visit his MySpace page at:

So what does it taste like?

Today as I was cleaning up around the house, I rediscovered Kelis' "Tasty" album. My goodness, I had forgotten for a second just how much I loved it. In my opinion, it's her best album....completely trumps 'Kelis Was Here' by the way. I don't know, everything about it just worked...right down to the cover. I still can't believe it's been 5 years since it was released. I was definitely in middle school, not really knowing what the hell my 'milkshake' was, but was completely sure it brought all the boys to the yard.


So here are a few of my key favorite tracks which helped make this record such a classic. Sorry for the 30 second crap. Imeem is a bee-yotch:

And besides...pretty much anything Star Trak puts its label on is bound to be pure gold.

Throwback Moment

Talk about the ULTIMATE act of frontin'...

Got everything in my MAMA'S name

Tsk Tsk Tsk

And look at Lil' Wayne's cameo before he was the mind-controlling, all-powerful 'Weezy F. Baby' that we know today. Seriously...what kind of exclusive crack did he create and put in his music that's got everybody hooked?

A Fashionable Love


So my good friend Nerd (the devilishly handsome guy kinda seen above between Killa & I) e-mailed me this picture of Alexis & Kanye because he "thought I'd like it." Well, he was right! Thanks Nerd!


My goodness, they are the epitome of fashion, perfected.



By the way, I believe this black leather jacket Alexis is wearing is actually mine.

What a perfect mesh of great style & great music. Kinda reminds me of what my future will be like haha...but with me heading my own empire, of course.

Betsey Johnson: Fall 2008 collection

If you didn't know, Betsey Johnson is one of my favorite lines (yeah, that's what I'm on). So here is a quick overview of this season's new collection, highlighting a few of my favorite pieces.

Those who really know me should know that I'm really on this very 70's, Jackie Burkhart-inspired look.

These whimsical, short cut dresses are perfecto!


And I am definitely ON these one pieces!


This one piece short set, minus the little red riding hood bear fur cape.

And this is just heavenly....the fit, the flare...just everything! Can you please get this for me? Pretty please?

And this gun sweater is to die for (no pun intended)

Starting Something New

So, as many of you already know or have sort of picked up on, I'm a very music oriented person. In some way, everything revolves around a certain song to me. So, I decided to start this "Song of the Day" feature here on the blog. Each song I post will definitely reflect a certain mood and/or tone that I'm going through on that particular day OR, just an overall theme I'm feeling. And with that said, here we go.

Song of the Day:

Tuesday, March 18, 2008

She's like a caged bird...

Isn't it funny how sometimes you don't even know how to explain what you're feeling? Be it that the emotions are far too great & scattered, or that you just don't have the strength in you to find the right words.

But then, there's always that one song, written by someone you don't even know or probably will never know, that perfectly sums up everything you feel. And it does it with such ease, and probably better than you ever could have...right down to the very last note.

"Just let her fly...for the whole world to see."

Throwback Moment

When I woke up this morning, this was the first song that popped in my head.
Why you ask?
I have no idea.
Just sit back and enjoy.

The visual effects in this video are amazing by the way haha

The Maybach is bananas...Peel back

This is a track off of Rick Ross' latest album 'Trilla.'

'Maybach Music'- Rick Ross ft. Jay-Z

I bullet proof the Maybach
Got a killer's intuition
Holding on that mac-11,
Makaveli's premonition
Waiting on my Suge Knight
One nation under God
Since I chose a thug's life
Guess I gotta play my part

There's some things your money can't buy, like heaven in the sky..even a better ride.

What I'm Groovin' to...

I heard this song a couple days ago, and it stuck. Yes, it's cheesy, but sometimes cheesy works for me.

'Check Your Coat'- O'Neal McKnight ft. Greg Nice

And of course, when Snoop and Pharrell get together, it's bound to be a hit. This is off of Snoop's latest album 'Ego Trippin.' Blame it on my LBC roots ya'll!

'Sets Up'- Snoop D O Double G

What the heck is going on?

I swear I thought I was listening to my iPod just now because just a few minutes after they played Kid Sis, 'Black Mags' comes on.

Looks like Power 106 is jumping on board now.


Big ups to the Cool Kids!

"Got her toes done up...

And her finger nails matching."

So, for some reason, I was just listening to Power 106, and they were playing new music. When lo and behold, they play 'Pro Nails.'
I find that so funny since I was listening to that track since last Summer. But it's still my shit! Lol!


Big ups to Kid Sister! Do your thang ma!

Great Idea #1


Today, why don't you try something new? Like, no longer frontin'.
I know, I know....that may seem like an outrageous request for some of you, but I promise you can do it.

Just start in small steps rather than jumping right in.
For instance, stop frontin' for about 5 minutes.
Then, gradually increase the time span until...hooray!, you're front-free.

Trust me, you'll feel a lot better and less stressed when you give up that bogus, frontin' lifestyle. The world would be a much better place.

She's just a fry short of a Happy Meal, if you know what I'm saying...

Fact: This woman's name is Billie Jean Jackson.

Fact: She was arrested for trespassing at Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch.

Fact: She claims that the King of Pop is her husband.


Fact: This bitch is crazy.

Mark my words...

"I promise Mama, I'mma do it, 'cause I know I put you through it.
And I just want you to sit around with your friends at a dinner table and say my baby's famous and I knew it."


And ain't nothing to it.

Big things to come for your girl.
Stay tuned kids.

Oh yeah...
Been hearing rumors of an exclusive one-on-one interview with Los Angeles based rapper H.O.P.E.?
Maybe they're not rumors after all.
Stay tuned!

I've been gone for a minute...

Now I'm back with the jump off.

Yes, yes ya'll, I know it's been a minute since I've posted on here.
But hey, it's midterms season. Shouldn't you be studying?
Anyway, I do sincerely apologize to you all...and to make it up to you, I thought I'd give you a few treats to look you can see what I've been up to these past few days.






You're welcome.

Don't trip, I know what's up...

Just a little FYI in regards to my last post!

The only reason why Lauryn Hill wasn't in the contest is because she is, in my opinion, the best female MC of all time. So there's absolutely no way of comparing her rhymes to any other female because she's just on an entirely different level. This was one of the points brought up during the debate I had with my friends. Clearly, if Lauryn was apart of the contest, it'd be an easy decision. But, since Kim & Fox are more "gritty" and "raw" than the more lyrical, more witty, and more gifted Lauryn, we decided to compare the best verses of the two. So, don't trip everyone, believe that I know what's up. I know that Ms. Hill shits on Foxy and Kim even on her worst day.

The homegirl Tiffany brought it back to "The Score" with one of Lauryn's sickest verses:

Zealots (The Fugees: Lauryn's verse)

Behold, as my odes, manifold on your rhymes
Two mc's can't occupy the same space at the same time.
It's against the laws of physics.
So weep as your sweet dreams break up like eurythmics
Rap rejects my tape deck, ejects projectile
Whether jew or gentile
I rank top percentile,
Many styles,
More powerful than gamma rays
My grammar pays,
Like carlos sanatana plays
Black magic woman
So while you fuming, i'm consuming
Mango juice under polaris,
You're just embarrassed
Cause it's your "last tango in paris"
And even after all my logic and my theory,
I add a muthafucker so you ignorant niggas hear me.
And you remember take notes,
As i sow my rap otas
And for you biting zealots, here's a quote.

And the homie Andre is feelin' "Freedom Time."
It happens to be way too entirely long to post, so I'll just put up an excerpt:

Freedom Time (Lauryn Hill)

There's no escapin' when
Your whole philosophy is paper thin
In vanity
The wide road is insanity
Could it be all of humanity?
Picture that
Scripture that
The origin of man's heart is black
How can we show up for
An invisible war
Preoccupied with a shadow, makin' love with a whore
Achin' in sores
Babylon, the great mystery
Mother of human history
System of social sorcery
Our present condition
Needs serious recognition
Where there's no repentance there can be no remission

"Nah I ain't gay, this ain't no lesbo flow..."

So the other day, the topic of which female MC has the best verse of all time came up. And today, the argument came up again. So after careful deliberation, we settled on 2 verses...Foxy on 'Ain't No Nigga' and Lil' Kim on 'Get Money.' Man, these ladies did come off hard on these songs, so it was hard for me to choose. I'm still going back & forth as I'm listening to both these ladies spit. But as of now, I'd say that Kim has a slight edge. Damn, you guys decide for yourselves:

Ain't No Nigga (Jay-Z ft. Foxy Brown):

What up boo just keep me laced in the illa snakes
bank rolls and shit, back rubs in the french tubs
Mackin this bitch, wifey nigga
so when you flip that coke
remember them days you was dead broke
but now your style and I raised you
basically made you into a don
flippin weight..heroin and shit
you know my pussy is all that
thats why I get bagets 5 carats and all that
From Dolce Gabana to H Vendell I'm ringin bells
so who the playa, I still keep you in the illest gators
Tailor made so we can lay up in the shade reminiscin
on how I fuck the best and shit
specially when Im sippin Baileys
dont give a fuck about how you move with them other mamis
I push da Z, eating shrimp scampi with rocks larger than life
Fuck them Reebok broads, you made it known who your wife was
I got you frontin in Armani sweaters
before this rap shit
when you was in levers and bullshit berattas
and E classes with mo in the glasses
shows in Cali wit all the flavor suede Bally's
now all your mens' up in your benz's
high post, I swear you be killin me
playin inside my pubic hairs
I never worry bout them other chicks
cuz you proved who was your wiz
when you was spinnin that bitch
I took a little when you was up north
your comisary stay pilin
how you livin large on the island
all them collects have me vex
but when you come home
knew I was comin off wit half of dem checks
now we on the rise
your diamond mami wit the slanted eyes
holdin this grip cocked the green and shit
Fucks no, I see half the dough
Made you into a star, pushin hundred thousand dollar cars

Get Money (Junior MAFIA ft. Lil' Kim):

Niggaz.. betta grab a seat
Grab on your dick as this bitch gets deep
Deeper than the pussy of a bitch six feet

Stiff dicks feel sweet in this little petite
Young bitch from the street, guaranteed to stay down
Used to bring work outta town on Greyhound
Now I'm Billboard bound, niggaz press to hit it
Play me like a chicken, thinkin I'm pressed to get it
Rather do the killin than the stick up jooks
Rather count a million while you eat my pussy
Push me to the limit get my feelings in it
Get me open while I'm cummin down your throat
Then, you wanna be my main squeeze nigga
Don'tcha?, you wanna lick between my knees nigga
Don'tcha wanna see me whippin your 3 down the Ave.
Blow up spots on bitches because I'm mad
Break up affairs lick shots in the air
You get vexed, and start swingin everywhere
Me shifty?Now you wanna pistol whip me
Pull out your nine, while I cock on mine
Now what nigga?I ain't got time for this
So what nigga?I'm not trynna hear that shit
Now you wanna buy me diamonds and Armani suits
Adia Vinadini and Chanel lime boots
Things that make up, for all the games and the lies
Hallmark cards, sayin, 'I apologize'
Is you wit me?How could you ever decieve me
But payback's a bitch motherfucker, believe me
Naw I ain't gay this aint no lesbo flow
Just a lil somethin, to let you motherfuckers know

MySpace has really made you dudes bold...

No lie.

Ever since the MySpace boom starting around, I'd say 2004, dudes have just been acting "hella" (shout out to my peeps from the Bay)out there.

I mean, wow, here came this free opportunity for you to instantly be connected to thousands of girls, some of whom you guys KNOW you would never have the balls to talk to in person. I mean, not to sound any kind of way, but you pretty much instinctively know what level you're on when it comes to the "attractive" factor. You naturally know what types of girls you can pull, and you naturally know which ones are a far reach. Then of course you understand which ones are way out of your league.

So why would you aim so high over the Internet? Shooting over a message talking about "What it do ma?" Boy, you know damn well you're not on that girl's level first of all. Secondly....over the Internet? Really dude?


Then, over the past few months, I've really started to see the transfer of that MySpace confidence into actual, real, live and in color life. I mean, you know that something is all out of whack when a guy wearing an "off-white" tee, with grease stains & a drunk neckline, faded and way oversized Enyce jeans, and all white Air Force Ones, but you can see the spots where he used white shoe polish, tries to spit game at BROAD DAYLIGHT.

But hey...I guess MySpace is the gift & the curse (big ups to Hov). It's a gift to the fellas who lack that natural debonair quality. I guess anyone feels like they can just bag the flyest chick in the room. Then it's a curse to us fly chicks, because now anyone feels like they can just bag the baddest chick in the room.



MySpace confidence will leave you looking like this guy. It's a horrible disease, and a cure must be found immediately.

18 and Grown...

Just wanted to say Happy Birthday to the homegirl Jade!
18 and grown and all that good stuff...welcome to the club...finally! = )

On that note, I just wanted to say that I've been feeling way more "grown" these days. My mindset is on another level and I truly do see things differently. Mark my words, I'm making major moves...and I refuse to let anything get in the way of the amazing things life has in store for me.

You feel me?

Come on Q!

Tonight on Making the Band 4, Q pulled the ultimate of the ultimate bitch moves ever! Dude, what were you thinking? You don't set up your boy like that, for any reason...ever! Brian really should've beat your ass for that weak shit.

Go sit in a corner somewhere and think about what you've done.


If you, for any reason, missed tonight's episode, don't trip because you know MTV will air it at least a good 50 more times.

No homo, but....


Lisa Bonet...still one of the most beautiful women of all time. I'd definitely take her homo.
