AGE: old enough for your fine, swagger-jacking , Barack Obama looking Daddy
The Rauls and the Malaya are coming in a strong 1st and 2nd for their fall must haves on my list.
So I stumbled across this track while perusing other sites when I’m supposed to be completing homework and researching grad school (f**k the future!)
Anywho, I pretty much hate Rihanna, but curosity made me listen to this cat-ass track. I don’t like it. WTF is T.I. doing? I mean her style’s fly, but her voice, her so-called “talent,” sounds like a damn cat.
It’s called “Living my Life,” kinda like an inspirational track or something. And she sounds worse than ever…
But here it is. 🙂
Of course, I will continue to post the newest videos of interest or debate but I will also begin to post new songs as I stumble across them.
I present… **drum roll please**
NEW MUSIC TUESDAYS
In honor of John Legend’s recent video posting on my site (Green Light, check out his swag), I have new diddy for you…
“If You’re Out There”: it’s a little stadium sounding to me and quite African-inspirational, like Lion King ish. So I’m not really feeling it, but here it is.
Next up is the newest quotable song in hip hop
In all respect, I thought this track would go just a teensy bit harder but, nonetheless, each rapper offers their usual “Facebook status”-worthy rhymes. Of course all these other artists make me forget about T.I., I’m sorry! But he’s not really the one-liner guy, and all of these men are really. But ah well…
Since 3 is the number of completion, here’s one more for your eardrums.
She was the inspiration for the title of my blog and I definitely have to show here love. I have been listening to all kinds of Keri Hilson, basically anything I could find on Ares. This song is no exception, but I guess it looks like it’s gonna be released to the public so your turn to enjoy it.
This song is called “Slow Dance” and she sounds great and the groove of the song is nice too. 😉 I hope you enjoy her as much as I do. I have a little crush on her too. Probably more than I have on Solange. Enjoy please and thank you.
And one more thing about New Music Tuesdays… I went to Best Buy AND Target today to go BUY Solange like the responsible music lover I am and… NEITHER THE STORE HAD IT! W-T-F!!!
Now I have to download it and shit… damn!
I’m definitely a Barack Fanatic! And honestly, not because of his political stances, so sue me!
He has the best swagger of any would-be President, he is married to an intelligent and strong black woman, he has two beautiful daughters that you can tell are a major force in his life, and it doesn’t help he’s kinda fly to look at too.
So here’s an excerpt from the end of Michelle Obama’s speech at the first day of the Democratic National Convention.
I loved how he shouted her out like he was proud she had his last name. That’s love!
Also, here’s the opening to Michelle’s Speech at the convention as told by her mother. It’s beautiful.
Sorry for the delay, school is ruining my life.
I’m posting this video just because I can and because I love both artists on the song. Enjoy and I hope I won’t stay away as long.
John Legend f. Andre3K “Green Light”
Now for a little tomfoolery for your day…
T-Pain f. Little Wayne “Can’t Believe It.” I had to post it, just because he’s a fool. Enjoy it… or don’t. I don’t care. Cuz it particulary didn’t like it, but T-Pain is like a car wreck, you wanna watch him but you hate what you see.
Took a little break… a thing called college interfered in my blogging. *sad face*
But now I’m biz-ack and I and have definitely been all up and through the other websites and have seriously developed a crush on Solange. Not like I like her, like her… but a crush on her personality and style and whatnot. Like she’s the famous, curly weaved-out equivalent of myself.
She likes bright colors, taking chances in shoes (I love a good fugly shoe), short dresses and skirts (my fav wardrobe pieces) and just funky things and alternative lyrics n sounds n stuff.
So I decided to dedicate a blog to her. With a few videos and pictures that I enjoy of her.
First, her new video for “Sandcastle Disco,” a song I have been listening to for so long that it is in my iPod’s Top 25 Played list (to be discussed more in detail later). Love it… or hate it, but I love it and every outfit in it! 🙂 I’m kinda disappointed that Q-Tip isn’t in the video tho I dig both versions of the song.
Next up is an entertaining video from the DC Soul Stage Concert in which she performs “I Decided,” another one of my favorites for the moment. It shows Solange performing her set as usual and then being interrupted by a fan but showing him much love. I love it.
I would rock this… but prob couldn’t afford it even with my M.B.A.
Okay, I’m officially done hanging on her proverbial nutsack. (Don’t question my vocab choices, this is my shit!)
I hope you enjoy her as much as I do and plan to download her ENTIRE album as soon as it become available on Ares
Everyone that knows me knows that I believe in conspiracies and the like.
So, we are all we aware that the comedic genius Bernie Mac has left this Earth but Isaac Hayes has recently joined him. Both died of what appear to be natural causes.
Bernie appears to have passed from a recent battle with pneumonia with an already compromised immune system due to a previous illness.
Now Isaac Hayes has been found in home unconscious with the treadmill still running next to him. He was pronounced dead shortly after.
Normally, this would just be a freak occurrence, but both of them are set to start in an upcoming movie. Soul Men
I hope this is all just freakish random happening otherwise Sam Jackson better be careful. Not to make light of death, but seriously, what is going on with this movie?
