ThrowBack Joint Ashanti "Foolish"

Ah yes the first lady of Murder Inc. Ms Ashanti @Ashanti  Singer, Songwriter,  Actress she was the R&B Princess of the early 2000's. She's worked with everybody from Mary J to Sheryl Crow. Just recently while studying the Ashanti Tribe of Ghana for an assignment.  I found that Ashanti was named after the warrior tribe. Her mother named her that because the Ashanti tribe of Ghana is a matriarchal society. Meaning the women are seen as powerful, strong and influential and Ashanti is just that. When she stepped on scene she made us all look and listen. I know you remember "Foolish" one of the first videos that was like a mini movie. I loved it. Although there was a lot of controversy about her receiving a "certain" award she has proven she is not only a phenomenal singer/ songwriter she cares about her community and gives back in many ways. Ashanti is currently working on a Studio Album on her Newly formed Record Label "Written Entertainment"

I take it this is Kelly coming out of her shell and saying I'm sweet but I'm also sexy as hell. Go Kelly! but next time know we've seen it all so try something different.

Xclusive Interview w/ CEO and Recording Artist "LAK"

Larry "LAK" Henderson also known as the HipHop Educator is on a mission to teach and reach the youth through Hip-Hop music. As soon as you hear the first lyrics off of any of his tracks it's easy to see that he has taken much time and effort in piecing together vital facts and flow atop some of the hardest hiphop beats Ive heard in a long time. As CEO, Recording Artist and Co- Executive Producer of Smart Music Entertainment he has taken full advantage of the knowledge he's gained and is not selfish about sharing (Thank God). During our conversation we spoke about his passion for gaining knowledge, his favorite books! and his thoughts on slavery in the 21 century. In his latest project Lesson One: Hip-Hop & Education he has succeeded in his mission to elevate the minds of the people!. It is a hit on Amazon's bestseller lists, reaching #1 in Hot New Releases and #8 in all Educational Music. Songs on Lesson One hit on topics such as money management, female empowerment, African-American impact, history, politics, and more. It is refreshing and exciting to see a young man be so prolific and passionate in his pursuit. He reminds me a lot of Rakim and KRS-1. Shoutouts to LAK keep Doin ya thing.

[BREAKING NEWS] Chad Johnson (Ochocinco) Arrested!

It's really sad that a lover's quarrel turned so ugly. However this isnt the first time that Evelyn has suspected Chad of cheating. Back in January she postponed the wedding because of his being unfaithful. Honestly, I think she knows what type of man she's dealing with. No offense but he has always been a "Ladies Man" I don't know what really happened only Chad and Evelyn do but I hope the truth sets everyone free... It's so unfortunate the wedded bliss didn't last too long for Johnson (Ochocinco) and his Basketball Wives star spouse Evelyn Johnson. According to reports in Florida, the Miami Dolphins receiver was arrested last night (Aug. 11) and charged with domestic violence after a heated confrontation. Police reports state that the conflict arose after Evelyn found a receipt for condoms while the couple was driving home and things erupted from there.
According to Davie police Capt. Dale Engle, Evelyn told cops that in the midst of an intense argument, the controversy the NFL star head-butted her in front of their Miami abode. Evelyn was taken to a hospital and treated for a forehead cut. Johnson, formerly known as Ochocinco, was charged with simple battery, domestic violence. All this, just as the couples Vh1 Basketball Wives spin-off series, Ev & Ocho, premieres next month. Hmm....Stay tuned!

Mariah Carey just released her latest single "Triumphant" (Get Em') off her upcoming album set to drop this Fall. She's teamed up with long-time producers and hitmakers Jermaine Dupree and Brian Michael -Cox. This track features current industry heavy hitters Rick Ross and Meek Mill from the MayBach Music Group better known as MMG.  First, let me say I'm glad she's back I've miss that voice... and the sincerity she brings to the game. You know Mariah keeps it 100. But, I feel the song itself is nothing special sorry "MC" I do like the hook and love the horns on the track, always inspirational. But having a hard time figuring out whose song it is. Why are you only singing on the hook? I want more Mariah! It sounds like she's the one being featured. Anyhow, Love the Single cover as well reminds me of "Honey"...  it's Mariah she on Fire! and we love her. Overall I give this track thumbs up! but next time I want more....Can't wait for the follow up - NBR
