“1 LIFE”

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

1 life

Today I met 3 amazing young men(Jamal Williams, Terrence Shivers, & Quinten Williams), that’s out here trying to better themselves, not be in the street or behind bars. They drove from Atlanta just to met me and when i say i felt so honored and blessed just to be in their presence, I know more than they were to be in mines. One of the young men just gave his life to christ sunday and when he told me, chills just went all through me because you don’t often here of 20 and 21 yr old young men doing that these days. What really stood out to me the most was they quit their jobs and move from Cleveland, Ohio to Atlanta, Ga on HOPE, A DREAM & FAITH!! I was so in shocked but it touched my heart to see them be so excited and in tune with who they were and what they want. I can’t express enough of how they love music and most of their own. When you REALLY love what you do, you will sacrifice, do without, and move in a way that no one would ever understand but it’s really not meant to be understood by everyone. These young men out here putting in work, getting scammed by people, etc but they refuse to give up. I asked “Why go so hard for this music that you putting out?” They told me “Well if you don’t believe in yourself or what you do, who will!” I couldn’t have said it better myself. “1 life” has so many meanings that I could go on and on about, but the name actually speaks volumes for itself. You only get “1” so you better make the best of the one you have, cuz when this one is over you can’t get a repeat!! Check out these young men song, watch they videos on YouTube and give them some love, I promise you won’t regret it.  My Thoughts Of The Day

Getting To Know Mushiya Tshikuka From “Cutting It in The ATL”

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

MUSHIYA 1

 

On Wednesday June 3rd 2015, I was sitting talking to a really good friend of mines and in our conversation I told her that I would love to meet “MRS. MUSHIYA” from the show “Cutting It In The ATL.” She told me to go on Instagram and send her a message, I said why not It’s worth a try. Within the hour after I sent the message, I got a call saying that I could go with “The Heat Magazine” and do a write-up on Mrs. Mushiya the very next day. Oh you see how fast GOD works, that’s what i told my friend.  So I spoke it into the universe and it came to pass. I met Mrs. Mushiya that Thursday night and when i tell you that she is a FORCE TO BE RECKON WITH, honey that’s and understatement!! She’s so humbled and beautiful all in the same breath tho. When she found out about my battle with cancer, she was so amazed. She told me that I was beautiful, gave me a HUGE hug and kissed me on my cheek. I was so humbled, grateful and most of all shocked because she showed me that much love and didn’t know me from a can of paint. She told one of her colleagues about me, which her dad does nothing but research on cancer and took my info so that she could give to her dad for him to call me. I was so amazed myself, but I had to reflect back to why I was really there. That’s where GOD needed me to be at that very moment to do and get what he needed me too. When I say that I had a blast with Mrs. Mushiya and her crew from “THE DAMN SALON”  6780 Roswell Rd Ne. Atlanta, Ga, please believe me, I even won me a great gift! The Damn Salon specializes in ALL natural hair. She said “Who the hell says that natural hair has to be boring!!?” She believes that “BEAUTY” comes in many colors and shades no matter if they have kinky or straight hair. She also loves herself and want to teach more people to do the same. “Who cares what people think of you?” is what she always says. Can you imagine her face when she says that!? Yeah, I know right lol. You can find THE DAMN SALON in a more than just a few places like Atlanta, GA, Washington, DC, Charlotte, NC, New York, Houston, TX, and Montreal. You can also order the hair extensions from her brand called RUNWAY CURLS on her website www.thedamnsalon.com and any other info that you may want to know about this Phenomenal Woman. I’m so glad and honored that I had the pleasure meeting her!! My thoughts of the day!

BOBBY BROWN ANNOUNCES BOBBI KRISTINA IS OUT OF COMA

Sunday, April 19th, 2015

After several grueling months for the family of Bobbi Kristina, Bobby Brown has confirmed that his daughter is out of her medically induced coma.

The singer delivered the good news during his performance at the Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie in Texas on Saturday night. The singer was in attendance with Cameo and headliner Frankie Beverly and Maze, as he revealed the news. The 22-year old has been in a coma since late January when she was found face down in her tub by her friend and boyfriend Nick Gordon.

Gordon previously denied any foul play at the time of the incident. Since then, Bobbi”s family has kept him away from her hospital bed. After calling out Bobby Brown a few times on Twitter, the 25-year old appeared on Dr. Phil. After a staged intervention gone horribly wrong, Gordon decided to head to rehab to deal with his alleged problem with substance abuse. He’s expected to enter a halfway home before his release from rehab.

Check out Brown’s video above.

Tyga To “Drake You Still A B__ch”

Friday, February 13th, 2015

capture-20150213-175002-crop

Without clearly stating his name, Drizzy appears to be referring to Tyga.

Upon its release, the “Rack City” rapper caught notice of the track and took to Twitter to address his concerns with the content within the song.

“Drake u still a bitch,” Tyga tweeted. “All that sneak dissing is weak. Just pull up. I know where u live and you know my address.. U been ducking the fade from Brown.”

The tweet was deleted shortly after.

The fued between Tyga and Drake came to a head last year when Tyga said in a cover story with VIBE that he doesn’t “like Drake as a person.”

“He’s just fake to me. I like his music; you know what I’m saying? I think his music is good, but we’re all different people,” Tyga said at the time.

Listen to “6 PM” below and Check out Tyga’s tweet:

US Central Command’s Twitter and YouTube accounts hacked to send threatening, pro-ISIS messages

Monday, January 12th, 2015

capture-20150112-122442-crop

The Twitter account for U.S. Central Command was apparently hacked on Monday, with pro-ISIS messages plastering the account’s profile.

The first message was posted at 12:29 p.m. ET, with the words “AMERICAN SOLDIERS, WE ARE COMING, WATCH YOUR BACK. ISIS.” and the hashtag “#CyberCaliphate.”

The profile’s image was replaced with a photo that includes the text “i love you isis.” Just before 1 p.m. ET profile and banner images were reverted to their default.

“ISIS is already here, we are in your PCs, in each military base,” reads one of the tweets.

Meanwhile, the Central Command’s YouTube page now displays propaganda videos in support of ISIS.

The Twitter messages imply ISIS has infiltrated deeper into the Central Command’s networks, and included images depicting what appear to be spreadsheets listing names and addresses of US Army members.

The hackers also provided a link to a .zip file labeled ‘US Army Files’, which included what appeared to be lists of names, addresses and contact information for army officers, as well as budget documents from last year. None of the documents appear to include terribly sensitive information, however.

UPDATE: CENTCOM’s Twitter account has now been suspended.

Birdman Will Not Let Lil Wayne Leave Cash Money

Sunday, December 14th, 2014

capture-20141214-185045-crop

Birdman is NOT letting Lil Wayne out of his recording contract, no matter how much he bitches.

Sources close to Birdman tell us … he’s deeply offended by Weezy’s public rants … claiming Birdman has tried to derail his career by refusing to release his new album. Weezy didn’t mince words, tweeting, “I want off this label and nothing to do with these people.”

Birdman is unmoved and vows to duke it out in court if necessary, because a contract is a contract.

As for the delay in dropping the album, we’re told Birdman says there’s lots of administrative work that goes into releasing a record, and Weezy is just a rapper, not a businessman, so what does he know?

Birdman still intends to release the album, but on his time, not Weezy’s.

Wayne has thrown down the gauntlet, calling himself a prisoner of the Cash Money music mogul.

Lil Wayne took to his official Twitter account at Lil Wayne WEEZY F ( @LilTunechi) to complain about his record company, and blame Birdman for holding up the release of his next album.

Lil’ Kim has been feuding with Nicki Minaj for years, but the new mom now has beef with VH1 star K. Michelle. Last night on her Instagram, Lil’ Kim posted a photo with the singer, attempting to expose her as a liar, a “psycho,” and a “Prozac popping bipolar bitch.” How did this name-calling mess start? Read more to find out.

Let’s go back to August, when Lil’ Kim called out K. Michelle for tweeting that Nicki Minaj is the “Queen of Rap.” The two engaged in a brief Twitter war, and things seemed to be fine until earlier this week. On Tuesday morning K. Michelle was invited to appear on The Breakfast Club, otherwise known as “the world’s most dangerous morning show.” While there, she talked about Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart?, her sophomore album, and also spilled about her former friendship with Lil’ Kim. Referring to Lil’ Kim as “Plastic Penny,” K. Michelle mentioned that Lil’ Kim had asked her to be the godmother of her child. Lil’ Kim responded to this claim with the following Instagram picture and long-winded commentary below.
