WILDIN' OUT WEDNESDAYS

0 comments
IS JAIL TIME NOT ENOUGH?
I'm not even a football fan but I have to address this Michael Vick situation. You do the crime you do the time. But clearly commissioner Goodell isn't satisfied with that. Hard time in a penitentiary isn't enough nope folks not in the NFL. Goodell thinks that it is only appropriate for Vick to be suspended for 5 games and wait until week 6 (October 18) for further consideration of his reinstatement. Not only is this bogus but it makes it even harder for him to get back into the swing of things. He has to deal with trying to get a team, the press (and we all know how relentless the press is), proving that he is a "changed" man and trying to prove he can still play the game. Teams are already looking at him as damaged goods now he is damaged goods with a 5 game suspension? Good luck with that! Why 5 games? Why suspension at all he was suspended before getting locked up and then he was locked up for 18 months! Goodell gets the wildin' out Wednesday award! Let Vick get back 2 basics and play some football!

DON'T MATTER IF YOUR BLACK OR WHITE: OR DOES IT?


Ladies and gentleman it doesn't stop there. The media gets the next wildin' out Wednesday award. Why you ask? Because they are kindly focusing on Michael Vick and have shoved Ben Roethlisberger to the back. Roethlisberger is a 27 year old QB 2x Super Bowl Champion who plays for the Steelers. A week ago he was accused in a civil suit for allegedly raping a casino hostess at a lake Tahoe resort last July. Many of you probably don't even know this. You would think, as they always do, the media would be relentlessly reporting this story day in and day out right? Absolutley not. Instead, the story was merely touched upon. In fact, ESPN waited two days after the story broke to even report on it. 2 days? 2 days? Isn't this breaking news??? Guess not!

If you go to ESPN.com right now you won't even see his name mentioned anywhere on the top news stories or the headlines. Who knew all you have to do is hold a press conference and say the allegations are "reckless" and "false". Maybe Kobe should have tried this and the media would have backed off. What if Roethlisberger was a black athlete would the media still cut him slack? Since when did the media become so courteous? Many would argue that there haven't been that many news stories on it because they are waiting until all the facts are revealed. BS! The media doesn't go by "Innocent until proven guilty" they leave that up to the courts. In the meantime, they look for any and everything to suck the life out of a story. The media needs to be equally as relentless regardless of skin color, but in this case they have clearly decided not to be! I guess Roethlisberger has dodged a bullet, at least in the media, with this one. Gotta love white privilege!

A WOMAN SCORNED
R. Kelly sang it best, "When a Woman's Fed Up". This woman was really fed up with her husband and decided to pour scolding hot water on his crotch for cheating on her! WOW! Talk about wildin' out! Click here for the full story! And just for your pleasure here is the R. Kelly song for you to enjoy, after all it is a classic!

TALK TUESDAYS: Relationship Status

1 comments
The Infamous relationship status has taken on a new life with the influx of social networking sites. Before Facebook, the relationship status part of a person's profile was an after thought. Facebook made sure to put this aspect of the profile to the forefront by displaying everyone's relationship status right underneath their profile pic and kindly letting everyone know when the status changes! "Kerisa is no longer in a relationship" or better yet "Kerisa and Joe Smo have ended their relationship" all that's missing is a detailed explanation of why the break up happened. Talk about being put on blast. And you have to love the broken heart when someone goes from in a relationship to single...CLASSIC! In talking with people I have come to realize that your "status" is a big deal. It has caused fights in relationships, break ups, tears, anger, and excitement (for those who were waiting for that fine ass guy to break up with his girl). So the infamous relationship status has become another potential obstacle right along side infidelity and lying! Crazy right?! Or maybe it's not?

I personally don't see the big deal and consciously omitted my relationship status from my page altogether. Does it matter if a person is in a relationship and leaves their status as single? What about changing their relationship status from in a relationship to single when they are clearly still in a relationship? How much does this matter? Is it worth arguing over? Is it a deal breaker? Some people just don't like their relationship business put out in the open. Is that equivalent to not introducing your significant other to your closest friends?

I say we get back 2 basics and not let these social networking sites take over our lives. Talk to Me!

"RUN THIS TOWN" MY 2 CENTS

1 comments

Now that I have listened to Jay-Z’s new track, Run this Town, on repeat and the hoopla over it has died down a little, I can put in my 2 cents. After all that’s what this blog is for right? First things first, the track is FIRE!! It’s a track I can listen to over and over again and not feel the need to hit my skip button as I have done with so many singles that have come out lately. Now with that said, before I go in depth I must say sometimes songs are to be appreciated and enjoyed and not to be over analyzed and picked apart until you have nothing but a snare drum standing by itself. Unfortunately, there are so many people Hatin’ on this track!! People are entitled to their opinions after all this is an ART form, however, there is a difference between critiquing and Hatin’. A critic has evidence to back up their claims, Haters sum up all of their claims in 5 words or less!

Now is this the hottest song HOV has ever put out? No…Are his lyrics going to make aspiring artists call it quits before they even put their pens to a pad? No…But it’s still HOT nonetheless. Personally, I feel Ye (Kanye for the Hip Hop challenged) killed it on his verse and with only one verse outshined Jay-Z on this one. The last 1/3 of this collabo that many seem to overlook is, Ri Ri, Ms. Rihanna herself whose voice sets off the hook and compliments these two musical beasts, making the track complete! All in all these three definitely went back to basics on this one and gave us Hip Hop heads hope that Hip Hop isn’t dead…to quote MC Lyte, “Nas was just pulling your leg cause it ain’t dead.”

TAKE A LISTEN TO...

AMERIE FEAT. NAS, JADA KISS,  RICK ROSS, KAIN- WHY ARE YOU (REMIX)

"I need the mics to sound like 1987 on this" I don't know if it was the mic or the Whodini  sampled track but you definitely get a nice old school hip hop vibe from this track. Makes you want to have  a cookout and play some spades in your backyard with the homies.  I'm loving the combo for this track could have probably done without Kain but it still is good nonetheless! Definitely a summer banger!

LETOYA LUCKETT FEAT. LUDACRIS- REGRET

I can see myself bumpin' to this with the windows down! The ultimate song you sing at the top of your lungs to that one that let a good one go! "You left the best you had baby don't look so mad" CLASSIC!! 


I must say it's refreshing to hear a track from a real MC! I have always loved MC Lyte and I appreciate the fact that this track is simply rap.  Now she won't get lyricist of the year for this track but it's definitely something I can rock to without learning some new off the wall dance! No jerkin or Stanky leggin here! Just pure Hip Hop! Back 2 Basics!

TALK TUESDAYS!

2 comments
Well today is Tuesday and this is when I just say what is on my mind aside from music! And yes this is where you TALK to me!

So I've ben talking a lot about relationships lately with my friends and family members and just thought I would put some things out there.

TODAY'S TOPIC: INFIDELITY

Well I guess we should start by defining infidelity so that we are all on the same page.


Infidelity is a violation of the mutually agreed-upon rules or boundaries of an intimate relationship.


T
here are two types of infidelity: The Emotional kind and the Physical kind. Just as to not get into any gray area let's focus on the PHYSICAL!

Now Why the Heck do people cheat? Is it something we should just accept and hope that it doesn't get out of control? How many relationships or marriages do you really think have not experienced infidelity? I would say there is probably a good 20% of relationships matter of fact let's say marriages that don't experience PHYSICAL infidelity. THAT'S CRAZY!! 

Why be involved in a relationship? In my opinion if I am going to cheat then there is something lacking in my current relationship and it needs to be reevaluated.  Maybe that is my instinct telling me that I am not happy in my current situation and need something else!  What is the purpose of being with someone, telling them you love them, they are the only one for you and then having a one night stand or many night stands with a side chick or side dude?

Once this infidelity occurs do you ever really recover from it? Do you ever really forgive yourself if you are the cheater? Do you forgive your mate if you've been cheated on? Is the trust gone? 

What about having a Don't Ask Don't Tell policy? Or a One Time Pass for either partner to use during the relationship? Yup sounds crazy right but hey maybe it will save some relationships. I say we just get Back 2 Basics and have some good old fashioned relationships and be able to celebrate 30+ years of marriage!  But did those marriages survive on unspoken infidelity?  

Here are some facts for you to let marinate:

In a recent study...

  • 27% of people who reported being happy in marriage admitted to having an affair.
  • In a recent survey of 16,000 university students in 53 countries, 20% of long term relationships began when one or both partners were involved with someone else.
  •  Studies suggest that around 30% to 40% of dating relationships and 40% to 60% of marriages are marked by at least one incident of sexual infidelity. 
  • Men are more likely than women to have a sexual affair, regardless of whether or not they are in a married or dating relationship.


What's on your mind? Talk to Me!

Dru Hill: Indrupendence Day

3 comments


Thanks to a good friend of mine I was informed of Dru Hill's new single that is supposed to drop on their upcoming album, Indrupendence Day, later this year.   I did a little research and not only came up with one but four potential singles off of that long anticipated album.  I must say I am THOROUGHLY DISAPPOINTED! Yes I said it DISAPPOINTED! At First listen the tracks sound like mediocre singles from a brand new group trying to step "outside of the box". Well clearly Dru Hill didn't have time to read my blog, it being new and all, but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE step back in the box! Embrace the box, Love the Box, shoot make me wanna make love to the box lol.  

It's definitely not what I was expecting. The only thing that seems tru to the Dru we used to know and love is that YEEEAAAAHHH from our boy Sisqo.  Don't get me wrong the single, "Indrupendence" is catchy but I can't say it would stop me from hitting the skip button and with that said definitely not getting anyone prego.  It's all good every CD is entitled to it's club dance R&B track which leads me to single #2, "Sold Out Love" SMH no words just click on the link and you'll see for yourself!

Which brings me to Single #3, "Rain" yes this title leads me to believe this is the song I'm looking for right? HELL NO!! Lyrics would be nice the song says virtually NADA...now in their defense, this very well may be an unmastered track.  The beat has some potential and has a vibe reminiscent of a Prince track but still not making me drop the draws!

Last but not Least is the sampled "Rule the World".  Tears For Fears for you 80s babies definitely ripped it in the 80s with this song so really hard to mess this one up.  The song is cute and catchy but yes ladies and gentlemen still no babies being bred here.  Let's cross our fingers and hope that these singles are as bad as it gets! I'm hoping that maybe in the end some of these singles will get chucked and Dru Hill WON'T disappoint and give us a good 2 or 3 songs we can turn the lights out to! Back to Basics people!!

Michael Jackson: His Music Will Live Forever!

1 comments

I definitely can't have a blog that focuses on music and not pay homage to the Greatest entertainer and artist of All time...Mr. Michael Jackson.   There are no words that need to be said! I leave you here with links to some of his best work as well as a brief bio for those of you who need to touch up on your Michael knowledge!
Respect REAL talent!!



Michael Joseph Jackson was born in Gary, Indiana on  August 29, 1958.  He was one of 9 kids in the Jackson family.  Dubbed the King of Pop...(I prefer King of Music), Michael was an American recording artist and entertainer from 1964 up until his untimely death at the age of 50 on June 25, 2009 in Los Angeles, California. He is considered as one of the most commercially successful artists of all time.   He has three children, Prince Michael Jackson I (1997), Paris Katherine Michael Jackson (1998), Prince Michael Jackson II (2002).

SOME of His ACCOMPLISHMENTS include:
  • Being a DOUBLE inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
  • Philanthropist-donating millions to 39 charities
  • Founder of the Heal The World Foundation
  • Guinness World Record Holder-"Most Successful Entertainer of All Time"-13 Grammy Awards, 13 Number One Singles, Over 750 million records sold
  • Six days following Michael's death, he continued to be King of Billboard's as 9 out of 10 of the albums on the charts belonged to Jackson as a solo artist or Jackson 5
  • Thriller remains best-selling album of all time
  • The Moonwalk
  • Transformed the music video into an art form with Thriller, Beat It and Billie Jean
HERE ARE SOME VIDEOS FOR YOU TO ENJOY! R.I.P. MICHAEL JACKSON THANK YOU FOR BEING AN INSPIRATION TO THE MASSES!

R&B Where art thou?

0 comments

O R&B O R&B where for art thou R&B? Sorry for the corny ode to Shakespeare but I'm an English teacher what did you expect?  Don't get me wrong I love a hot 16 but I am feenin' for some good soul, turn off the lights, make me moist kind of music.

Now there are a few R&B singers that have made their attempt to make more club worthy songs i.e. Jamie Foxx, Mary, Ne-Yo, to name a few but it's not what I am looking for.  I am really missing the good ole baby making I'll be pregnant in 9 months fa sho type of music.  With Maxwell's latest release BLACKsummer's Night, which I will refrain from giving my in depth review on (but if you don't have it GET IT NOW!), true R&B heads are left longing for more.  I think I don't speak for myself when I say that we have enough in the club, stanky leg nonsense and need some more kick back, light the candles music.  So I am calling out some R&B soul singers that I wouldn't mind hearing from...Jaheim, Tyrese,  Avant, Anthony Hamilton (he is pretty consistent with album releases but still can't get enough), Dru Hill, Shoot I'll take a K-Ci and Jo-Jo album or even a Jodeci remastered anniversary edition with one or two new tracks.  I want to say Ne-Yo because he's an AMAZING singer and songwriter but I would love it for him to do an album that is strictly prego music lol. 


Last but not least with all his mixtape drops I am patiently waiting for READY , Trey Songz next masterpiece (crossing my fingers)!  And for those of you who have yet to experience Anticipation I leave you here with the link for you to download! Enjoy! And use protection! Back to Basics!

IT'S UR GIRL!!!

So I figured I'd give this Blog thing a try just for the simple fact I have so much to say!! LOL!! Well those of u who are wonderin' or not wonderin' I'm a free lance writer for the Source magazine and XXL LMAO!!! yeah right nah j/k I'm just an average consumer like you who has things to say about the ish I consume.  This blog is going to mostly be about my opinion on music! One because I think that there is a serious recession going on in music and like the blog says we need to get back to basics ASAP!! 

Here I will comment on music, new music, not so new music, things that people claim is music, the game as a whole, up and coming artists, established artists, artists that need to be retired, artists that need to come out of retirement...I think you get the drift and every now and then I'll probably throw something else in like a random thought about relationships, celebrities, bball, fashion, etc. 

So read, tell a friend to read, skim through, hate, comment I don't give a damn because regardless I'm still going to keep writing! So enjoy or not! Holla!! 

LET'S GET BACK TO BASICS!
