Music Gives Life : Beyonce "7/11"

I awoke…. and life was given




Shoulders sideways, smack it, smack it in the air
Legs movin' side to side, smack it in the air
Legs movin' side to side, smack you in the air
Shoulders sideways, smack it, smack it in the air
Smack it, smack it in the air
Legs movin' side to side, smack it, smack it in the air
Smack it, smack it in the air

***Not only is this song and production completely off the charts but the visual is crazy. It definitely makes me want to just dance around oh so joyously while in my spray painted panties sipping from a red cup. Beyonce let us in and gave us the business. Every woman can relate to dancing around with her friends, maybe in underwear, while drinking and just having fun. That's what this reminds me of for sure… a hell of a slumber party! ***

In My Feelings, As Usual: Jhene Aiko "Pressure"


It's that moment when your body and your mind are at war with one another. The temptation to want that in which you should refrain from causes havoc on the emotions. The pressure to stay away when you are so drawn toward. Self has no control over the visions of ecstasy and LUST…. So the pressure told me to run away!





"Up till the sun rises
There's no compromising
I know, I know, I know
You are such a liar"

Artist: Jhene Aiko
Album: Souled Out

Sundays Jam: ScHoolBoy Q ft. Kendrick Lamar "Blessed"


"Stay blessed my nigga, blessed my nigga
Really think about it, could be worse my nigga
Don't stress my nigga, yes my nigga
We all blessed my nigga"






After a difficult weekend I needed this for sure. Feeling a little discouraged yet trying to fight through the mistakes I figured life could definitely be a lot worse. In life there will be heartbreak, disappointments, discouragement, darkness and more but they never last forever. We have the ability to cause ourselves to think too much at times when the moment should be executed naturally. Over thinking for me is a sign of insecurity as if you were already as confident in self then you wouldn't second guess that in which should be natural. Most of the time our past has shaped us into who we think we are, want to be, and who our spirit knows we are destined to become. It's time for some mental change over here. Anyway, enjoy another powerful song from ya boy ScHoolboy Q.

Love Day B!

PARTYNEXTDOOR "Thirsty"


"Thirsty, baby bring it over here"




I am slightly embarrassed for the amount of lust that I have for PARTYNEXTDOOR. Not only is he 21 but his music makes you want to party, fall in love, fall out of love, dislike that lover, but still want to be with them. LOL. This singer, songwriter, and producer from Ontario is about to dominate $hit if you ask me. Melodic verses, accompanied by amazing production, and an oh so seductive storyline has me on a PARTYNEXTDOOR binge.  He is signed to Drake's OVO Sound Label and if you ask me he is one great addition to that already epic team. Party released his first mixtape, PARTYNEXTDOOR, in 2013 and his first album was released in July of his year. I have taken a listen to both and I can promise you I am in love completely. SIGHS.  "Thirsty", "Sex On The Beach", and "Recognize" ft. Drake are a few hits from his latest self titled album PARTYNEXTDOORTWO.  Enjoy!

Open up to me and drop your guard, I need the proof
Constantly to know if you still have a heart"- PND

Aaliyah "I Care For You "



Paying Homage





This song is definitely one of my favorites from the beautiful angel Aaliyah. It seems as if all the great artists' leave just short of reaching those plateaus of Greatest Of All Time. She will always be remembered as the Queen of RnB.

Flashback Fridaze: Do Or Die featuring Twista "Po Pimp"

"They peep those, p-i, m-p, and they think that automatically

Cause he's a pimp, he gotta be, full of that
M-o, n-e, but why? "




*** Being from Chicago this is the music that we grew up listening, partying, and vibing to. This was that era where Do Or Die would deliver that smooth flow with intricate bars that told a story. Twista would provide that Tsunami Flow that I was oh so eager to learn so that I could spit it on point. Sighs…. sit back, close your eyes, and allow AK-47, Belo, and Twista to take you to a serene space. Happy Friday… Enjoy!  

Quick Bio: Chicago's Do or Die gained a hit with their first single, Po Pimp. Released on a tiny Chicago label, the track became a local hit and sparked the group's signing by Houston's Rap-A-Lot Records. Given a wide release in the summer of 1996, the single hit number 22, increasing the buzz for a full-length from the group. In September of that year, Picture This was released on Rap-A-Lot. Do or Die returned to action in the spring of 1998, releasing their second album, Headz or Tailz. Victory followed two years later. Back 2 the Game (2002) and Pimpin' Ain't Dead (2003) did well in Chicago and on the West Coast, but nationwide the group was being ignored by radio. With R. Kelly, Kanye West, and Twista all making guest appearances, 2005's D.O.D. was an attempt to change this. A year later, Do or Die went in a totally different direction by releasing the hard, street-minded Get That Paper with Bun B the lone guest star. (BVM Underground HipHop/YouTube)

Jam of the Day: Childish Gambino "Telegraph Ave" "Oakland"



In Oakland





I was introduced to this artist's music about 2 years ago by a co-worker and at first I wasn't too excited. After a few more listens and a reading of his many other talents I was then very intrigued. Learning that he was also a writer for the NBC comedy series 30 Rock, as well as an actor, and producer I now had a newfound respect for him as a true Jack of Many Trades. I respect all who have the ambition and determination to master their talents and LIVE pursuing the passions within the soul. Recently, a special friend of mine sent me the link to this video and I fell in love. It features singer Jhene Aiko as the leading lady and Childish Gambino delivers soft melodic tones of lust vs love. You can catch Lloyd "In Oakland" throughout the song as well which provides even more serene vibe. Being that I had no clue Childish Gambino could also sing the combination of him rapping and singing on this song makes my soul slightly joyous. Check out his album Because The Internet for other awesome music. Enjoy! Thanks MJ……

Freestyle's With Flex : Chris Brown

An Artist Is A Jack Of All Trades

Chris Brown hit Funk Flex with nothing but bars and crazy flow in this joint. He is definitely a true artist as he continues to exude his many talents. He has already conquered RnB, Pop, Electronic, intricate dance moves, fashion and now he just bodied the art of rap. He may have his mishaps in life as we all have but no one can deny that he is beyond talented. Anyway enough of me blabbering enjoy this video courtesy of YouTube lol.
