MONICA STILL STANDING {new music}

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

MONICA ft. LUDACRIS - STILL STANDING

With the new release of her highly anticipated reality show, STILL STANDING, airing on BET, Monica keeps it completely real with everything, by taking you behind the scenes of her life and music career. Monica is a strong independent woman, but you will see that her peace of mind didn't come easy. She had to take a break from the music industy to regroup...determine not to become just a trick of the trade. She is an example of how intelligence and real talent can still reign over the f#ckery that usually takes place with females trying to hold their ground in the industry. Monica's show will also tie into her upcoming 6th studio album entitled Still Standing due out in December

BONE THUGS & HARMONY ARE BACK TOGETHER AFTER 10 YEARS!! RECORDING THEIR NEW ALBUM !!!!

[STORY BY DJBOOTH.NET]

After millions of albums sold, a Grammy and worldwide adulation from fans, the legendary Bone Thugs-n-Harmony are looking stronger than ever for the upcoming release of their ninth studio album Uni5: The Word's Enemy, an album made possible by their reunion with formerly imprisoned fifth member Flesh-n-Bone.

When asked to speak about the process of reuniting and recording an album with Flesh-n-Bone after his nearly decade long incarceration, Lazy Bone explained that while it’s taken a little time to learn how to record together again, the results so far have been overwhelmingly positive.

“Us recording together on this project, I wouldn’t say it’s been the easiest process in the world. It was a lot of hard work for all of us to get back on the same page after so much time. “The chemistry has always been there but it was more of a challenge than any other album we’ve done,” Lazy said. “It took a lot of thought and calculation to let the world know what we wanted to say and the message we wanted to bring."

LUDACRIS FOUNDATION TAKES WASHINGTON D.C.!! GIVING HAND-UPS, NOT HANDOUT!



Ludacris represents his foundation and the Hip-Hop community with his exclusive interview with CBS NEWS. TheLudacrisFoundation.org is awarding Congresswoman Maxine Waters, for all of her efforts in urban communities. I posted this video because I would love to see just as many rappers in Washington as we do in the strip clubs, no offense. I believe Ludacris is continuing a trend of stepping up to the power-players in Washington to represent us, the Hip-Hop community, accurately. Hopefully his actions will spark others, in his position, to do the same.

Potopia: Oakland leads the way in marijuana legalization



[pic from AP]

Newsweek: A nine-block section of the city has become a marijuana mecca — and a model for what a legalized-drug America could look like.

On the corner of Broadway and 17th Street in downtown Oakland, nudged between a Chinese restaurant and a hat shop, Oaksterdam University greets passersby with a life-size cutout of Barack Obama and the sweet smell of fresh marijuana drifting from a back room. Inside, dutiful students flip through thick plastic binders of the day's lessons, which, on a recent Saturday began with "Pot Politics 101," taught by a ponytailed legal consultant who has authored a number of books on hemp. The class breaks for lunch around noon and resumes an hour later, with classes on "budtending," horticulture, and cooking, which includes a recipe for "a beautiful pot pesto." There are 50 students in this class, the majority of them Californians, but some have come all the way from Kansas. In between lectures, the university's founder, Richard Lee, 47, rolls in and out on his wheelchair greeting students, looking the part of a pot-school dean in Converse sneakers, aviator glasses, and a green "Oaksterdam" T shirt.

Locals refer to the nine-block area surrounding the university as Oaksterdam—a hybrid of "Oakland" and the drug-friendly "Amsterdam," where marijuana has been effectively legal since 1976. Nestled among what was once a rash of vacant storefronts, Lee has created a kind of urban pot utopia, where everything moves just a little bit more slowly than the outside world. Among the businesses he owns are the Blue Sky Coffeeshop, a coffeehouse and pot dispensary where getting an actual cup of Joe takes 20 minutes but picking up a sack of Purple Kush wrapped neatly in a brown lunch bag takes about five. There's Lee's Bulldog CafĂ©, a student lounge with a not-so-secret back room where the haze-induced sounds of "Dark Side of the Moon" seep through thick smoke and a glass-blowing shop where bongs are the art of choice. Around the corner is a taco stand (Lee doesn't own this one) that has benefited mightily from the university's hungry students.

1970s blaxploitation films: a lot has changed, but much has stayed the same

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
[PAM GRIER PLAYED FOXY BROWN IN THE 70's]

Say what you will about the roughly 150 black action, horror and comedy films that came out between 1971 and 1976, the height of the blaxploitation era: that they were cheaply made, poorly acted, hyper-violent and glorified pimps, prostitutes, criminals and con men -- all those things are true, to a certain extent. But they were also utterly empowering, gobbled up by African American audiences desperate for strong, and recognizable, working-class heroes.

"These films made me feel proud in a way Sidney Poitier didn't; he was detached from the inner-city experience," says Josiah Howard, author of "Blaxploitation Cinema: The Essential Reference Guide."

"These people spoke to me because they spoke like me, they looked like me, they had simple dreams like me," Howard says. "I came to these films as a young teen, and I could not believe I was seeing people like me, with big Afros, living in the ghetto. I thought, 'That's my life,' so it was uplifting for me."

FIRST OFF!!! WHAT’S ON LISA FORD’S MIND!!

BROTHAS, I LOVE YOU…
PLEASE!!! DON’T GO TO JAIL !!
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
{a picture of my ex from behind bars}

The picture you see above was all I had to hold on to. The man that I use to love spent 8 years in a State Penitentiary, serving time for trying to get rich the easy way. He wouldn’t agree that the route he chose was the easy way, because day in and day out he risked his life for the dollar bill. He fought tooth and nail for every dollar that he made, did a lot of things that he wasn’t proud of, so he definitely wouldn’t say it was the easy way.

But here’s why I think it was the easy route. While he was in jail, I had to work two jobs on top of being a freelance writer, to take care of me and our daughter. With him, I enjoyed the finer things in life, taking the easy route, but that came with a hefty price…always looking over my shoulders, sleeping with weapons under my bed. But I didn’t care about any of that because I was blind and dumb. Eventually I went to college, grew up, and moved on.

It’s easy to take the route already laid out for you (ie hustling drug-dealing, gang-banging, violence), but it’s very difficult to chose to go on a different path and make different choices in the midst of your surroundings. To break cycles and to rise above takes a different mindset that is self-developed and constructed. And the reward of placing yourself in a different dimension is greater than you can imagine because it benefits the entire world.


In lieu of the Derrion Albert case, not only is he gone for good, but so are the young black teens that murdered him So that’s five African-American men who could have grown to be doctors, lawyers, teachers, husbands, fathers. But instead, their lives will be wasted behind bars. Mothers are left without sons, and women without husbands.

Did you know that in Illinois (state where Derrion was murdered), 60% of all inmates in their 22 Correctional Institutions are black males. According to a 2006 study by The Consortium for School Research at the University of Chicago, only 3% Black male students who attended Chicago public schools were projected to receive a Bachelors Degree by age 25 and, according to a 2008 study by the Schott Foundation for Public Education, only 37% of Black males who attended Chicago public high schools graduated in 2006. Compared to Illinois 22 colleges and universities, where the average is 3% black male students. (read study HERE)

With these statistics, who are young African-American women going to marry?
Who is going to father children in the African-American community? Who is going
to help the African-American community compete against the world?

So this is a plea to all of my brothas…We need you. We need your swag, your strength, and your guidance. Fathers, teach your sons to love themselves, and sons please DON’T GO TO JAIL!!

THE COOLEST INTERVIEW EVER starring ANTHONY HAMILTON

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

ANTHONY HAMILTON'S RADIO INTERVIEW WITH DJBOOTH.NET


I am still feeling this dude. I can't stomach too much R&B because most of it is the same whining and crying with the men using synthesizers to make their voices even more feminine. I'm just not with all of that. But Anthony Hamilton is soulful and relevant. You can hear the struggle of urban life in his voice. There is no falseness, no begging, and it's not all about sexing somebody. What a refreshing change to all the bullshit R&B that's being played on the radio. Hopefully Hamilton is here to stay forever.

Who Do I Have 2 F$ck To Get Famous!!

3 RULES TO BECOMING RICH & FAMOUS!!!





Kim, Amber, and Coco are rich, successful, and pretty much famous for being famous. I mean why go through all the motions of trying to walk a straight and narrow path, when you don't have to. Because of Ray J, Kanye, and Ice T, these ladies have all the capital they need to launch their projects without having to slave over it. Unnecessary Hard work sometimes don't pay off. Sometimes...it's all in who you f$ck!

[WOULD WE KNOW AMBER ROSE IF SHE HADN'T DID KANYE?]

NO we wouldn't, but I can't say I'm mad at Amber for meeting the right one at the right time in terms of her career. Kanye lost his mother, broke up with his fiance, and Amber stepped in with perfect timing. Is having perfect timing a talent within itself? If we look deep enough, we can find where the real talent lies. So... [RULE #1 HAVE PERFECT TIMING!!]




























[WOULD WE KNOW COCO IF SHE HADN'T DID ICE-T?]


NO, but maybe it took knowing Ice and more...Coco stressed on her blog on Global Grind that to get the type of ass that she has, you have to be born with it. And there are certain butt exercises that she does on a regular basis. So if you want to take the route that CoCo took, then it takes some natural physical attributes as well as butt exercising. I exercise hard, but I've never put two and two together that it could make me rich!
[RULE #2...INVEST IN YOUR BUTT!!]

Coco promises that her butt is real. But real or fake, she invests of lot of time on it. She works on it at the gym , she take pictures of it, and she writes about it, hwerself, on blogs. If that's not dedication, then I don't know what is. So ladies, get you a High-maintenance booty!!













[WOULD WE KNOW KIM KARDASHIAN HAD SHE NOT DID RAY J?]

We already know the answer to that is NO!! But what difference does that make to Kim now? Do you think she cares that it took photo proof penetration to get her point across? She's RICH BITCH!! So what, if she will forever be linked to RAY J's...(no description of him comes to mind right now) ASS on videotape!! Hell, doing a sex tape is better than starving to death with no no lights on! I mean, I wouldn't necessarily let Ray J put his hands on ME!! But what would you do?? STARVE or SEX TAPE it? Which brings me to #3.

[RULE #3.. SEX THE RIGHT ONE]

And if you're really bold, tape it! These are the rules these ladies followed and it worked. Their methods almost say that it's better to just F*ck the right person to get ahead. Is this a new standard to follow in the entertainment industry?? you tell me...

Meet Jennifer Hudson's Newborn Son!



Motherhood definitely seems to agree with Jennifer Hudson, who gave birth to her first child, David – named after her fiancĂ©, David Otunga – on Aug. 10.

"I love being nurturing and caring because I love to see other people happy," says Hudson. "Who better to devote my time to than my own child?"

From singing lullabies ("He can be crying at the top of his lungs and just turn off like a switch") to frequent bottle-feedings ("I’ve never seen a baby eat like he does!"), the singer (who chose not to address the tragic loss of her family members last October) offers PEOPLE an intimate look into her new life as a mom. (following interview by Julie Jordon at People Mag)

How hard was it keeping your pregnancy under wraps?
"David and I were the only people who knew for a long time. I would forget I was pregnant, it was so easy. I didn’t have any morning sickness, no cravings either. I just thought, ‘Oh, well, we’ll wait until it’ll tell on itself.’ I didn’t show until I was seven months so that made it easy right there."

Your son was delivered via C-section, what was your recovery like?
"Everybody told me how much it was going to hurt afterwards but I think I have a different tolerance for pain than others. By that night after I had the baby, I'm like, 'Look, I can’t sit in this bed anymore. I’ve got to get up!’ I’ve been up and about since he was born. To me, the pain is no different than when you work out a muscle you’ve never worked out before and it’s sore."

Has his personality emerged yet?
"He has a lot of personality, like David. He’s always been a good sleeper. His favorite time to smile now is diaper changes. Or when he spits up on you – he just cracks up like he thinks it’s the funniest thing. And his bottle is his pacifier. With a pacifier, it’s like he knows, ‘Ain’t nothing come out of here. No, I don’t want that. Where’s the real deal?’ His best friend is that bottle; that’s all he wants."

Would you be supportive if he wants to pursue a career in entertainment?
"We'll definitely encourage education. His father is an education fanatic so we definitely want him to get an education and go to school. My mom always said, 'Whatever you want to do, I'll support you as long as you’re happy.' So I will do the same."
