New Music: Handsome by Pete Genesis

Well it’s about time! For quite some time I’ve been hearing word of Mr Pete Genesis aka Craig Irish being in the studio putting in work and finally we have the fruits of his labor. Pete Genesis is a rapper/producer from Toronto who’s trying to make a name for himself.

This is a little preview, a freestyle over Kanye’s “Gorgeous” beat.

SOTD: Upgrade Ya

Tying into my previous post, there is no way this couldn’t have been song of the day.

This was the FIRST song I fell in love with off of this album B’Day. I remember around the time the video dropped, everyone had their bullshit rumors swirling around that they broke up. When she dropped this video, at the point where Jay-Z starts to rap everyone was like “see see, he’s not even in it…” then they were shamed one scene after. The strength of a relationship is never truly known by the outside world looking in it. Unless you see things firsthand everyday, everything else is just speculation.

Who’s Mad?

Upgrade Ya- Beyoncé feat. Jay-Z

Hiiiii baby 🙂

Fresh Princess

I’m a little late on this, but oh well… I do what I want.

By now, you must have seen Willow Smiths (Will Smith + Jada Pinkett Smith’s child) video for her banger “Whip My Hair”.  Doesn’t it just make you want to dance? She’s only 9 and already has so much personality.

Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way. Is it Willows mission in her young life to continue to come for Rihannas Elmo Red wig? Clearly. The newest blastoff is beginning her performance as shown in this video with Rih-funds “Only Girl in the World”. Message?

Loves this kid.

Cover time: Single Ladies

Yessssss!

I love a good cover and a cover of my wife Beyonce? Yes, I am all over that. Sara Bareilles does a sick version of Beyonce’s “Single Ladies”. I love me some Sara, so this was a win all around for me.

I love when someone can flip a song and make it their own, without completely jacking it up a la Fabolous’ teeth. I’ma need Frostwire to acquire this version, my iPod needs it like yesterday.

Phill at it again.

Good Morning Folks,

Yes, I know 3 posts in a couple days with this gentleman however you know music and laughter are my life. This is the man behind the Trey Songz video, his name is Phill. Whatever music he shall be bringing out, I will be buying. His voice is something serious. He reminds me of Jamie Foxx, incredibly sexy voice but also jokes around while singing and keeps you entertained. This video made me exhale, the words are so simple ( I think it may be a freestyle). Either way, take a listen.

SOTD: Who do you love?

I shouldn’t have much to say for the description. This is CLASSIC 90’s music and the lyrics still ring true.

“..who do you love? Are you for sure?”

LL in his fine days.

LL Cool J feat. Total

JOTD: Hold Yuh (African Remix)

This is hilarious.

Femi you make me laugh man.

By now unless you’ve been living underneath a rock, you should be familiar with the Reggae song “Hold Yuh” by Gyptian. Well here is the African remix to it.

*Swoon*

This man, does wonders for me. Ever since I was introduced to him over a year ago, I’ve been hooked. Who am I talking about? Well it’s none other than J.Cole!  If you haven’t heard about him by now, I’m not sure what to say about you or your life. This man should be the next big artist to blow out of Hip-Hop, I’m really rooting for him. The lyrics and DELIVERY (I’m real big on delivery) not to mention he fine as hell (Yes, I’m still female lol). Rumor has it he will be performing at tomorrow nights BET Awards and I shall be watching 2 inches from my TV screen.

You know I don’t usually post “new videos” but I love him too much not to.

Here is his video:

Who Dat

POTD: Butterflies

This song makes me smile.

Marsha Ambrosious (Previously of Floetry) singing “Butterflies”. Yes, this is a Michael Jackson song however she wrote the song and her cover was always better to me.

1 Year Later.

*Sigh*

We all remember what we were doing when Pandemonium broke out one year ago today. I was at home when I began to see bbm status updates “Pray for Michael Jackson”. My heart immediately started racing and thoughts of “what happened” began running through my head. That night was a bunch of confusion mixed with scare and prayer.  When the news finally were confirmed that the King of Pop aka Michael Gary Jackson had passed away, I was devastated. As I stated last year when I made my posts about him, you never expected him to be ‘Invincible’ however you expected him to be his ‘Bad’ self until at least his 80’s. The measure of a man should not be realized only in death but in life as well. Michael Jackson was and always will be the greatest of all TIME. Point blank period.

Before I go on and on, I’m going to finish off with a poem. This was written by my longtime friend Maria about Michael Jackson and she was gracious enough to send it to me to post on my blog. Thanks Maria!

Forever Missed, Never Forgotten

(When a tear drop falls in your name,

it is because you are missed)

 

The innocence of your beauty,

purifies the world’s heart.

Your rays of light reflect in our mirrors,

like a shining star.

Your existence overshadows

all negativity on earth,

like an illuminating light

that hovers over the moon

during a solar Eclipse.

Where there is darkness and loneliness,

we are cured with your endless love.

No shape, color or size,

can escape your overwhelming kindness.

The earth’s blue waters and green lands

shine brighter within the universe

from having your magical feet

and selfless hands touch down on them.

Your time spent on our planet

was too short for us to cope with,

but an infinity for what lives on in your name.

Life is short, but yours was a million lifetimes

in half a century.

Your being was larger than life,

louder than words,

faster than light,

and forever remembered.

This world is a better place

because you lived.

You are forever missed

and never forgotten.

 

♥ <R.I.P Michael Jackson> ♥
