Bitter Woman’s Day

Bitter Woman’s Day

father's day card for momFather’s Day has just passed and I cannot help but cringe at the  inappropriate and downright bitter posts that have flooded my timeline wishing single mothers a happy Father’s Day. All I can do is shake my head because it’s a childish, passive-aggressive way to say “my (or my child’s) father ain’t sh*t.”

Is that even necessary?

What purpose does it serve to have women showboat, take credit for,…

Red is the Rose of Love and Passion one seeks out their entire Life to find in a Beloved, only to discover Love has surrounded them all along in many Forms. The illusion of Life is that we are Separate from the Love of our Creator, but we are not. Aphrodite was the Greek Goddess of Love, but unlike her Roman counterpart Venus, she represented not only sexual love but also of affection and all…

Is There Mass Hysteria of Unracism?

Is There Mass Hysteria of Unracism?

Don Sterling did it. He has opened the flood gates and made a mentality amongst the good ole’ boys known flat out, red handed, its O-V-E-R.

I will state that the media has yet to authenticate the audio but it doesn’t look good for big belly Sterly. He hasn’t adamantly denied the allegations, which I am sure someone would do if the audio was a lie. But he hasn’t, which makes me lean more toward…

Hell hath no fury like a MAN scorned

Hell hath no fury like a MAN scorned

Everyone knows the famous saying, “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned”. That may indeed be accurate, however I’ve found out that a MAN scorned is ten times worse than any woman scorned. They may not want to admit it, but a man that has been dumped by a woman or has experienced infidelity can’t handle the pain. Some men that have been treated wrong in a relationship,will totally shut down…

Shaven or Unshaven: A Discussion for Today’s Man

Shaven or Unshaven: A Discussion for Today’s Man

The title of this piece may throw some of you off mainly because the question of shaven or unshaven usually pertains to how men prefer their women to be around their most intimate area.

I’m flipping the script on this as to the men taking the time to groom down their in what might be their most prized area.

Today’s world has brought us the metro sexual male, the male that takes extra care of…

Even though I am not a West Coast native; I am fully aware of the great contributions made to the rap game by one of the super producers of rap music  DJ Quik and when I was invited to the release party of his protégé, Gift Reynolds, I had to make sure I was in attendance for his introduction to the music industry.

He gave a blazing performance of his new single, “Mayweather”, a hot track produced by De-Capo Music Group. I know this brother has what it takes to be successful in this industry as he left the mic smokin and to my surprise he was not afraid of the stage!

I was able to have a sit down with Reynolds in the “Spotlight Lounge”, when I tell you not only is he talented, handsome,  and very charming –Gift speaks from a genuine place, he’s an open book. Ladies he keeps his phone unlocked he says he has nothing to hide, and he is looking for that special girl too (we may have to give him the Spotlight Diva boyfriend application and find him some special ).

I was allowed access to a special VIP reception where guests’ enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. Many came out to support Gift Reynolds accomplishment such as Boxer Marquis Prince Snead, Comedian Ray Grady (who is hosting the  BET Experience and will be on BET’s Comic View airing May 7, 2014) , and Actor Richard John Reliford.

De-Capo Music Group, Noah “I-Create” Nwachukwu and Darius “Droyd” Bryant, were in attendance – its always refreshing to see young brothers working hard in the entertainment industry; this goal oriented duo plan to have long-lasting careers in this industry. Check out the pictures and video of Gift Reynolds “Mayweather” release party…

art laboe block party

How many of you have been to a good old-fashion block party? When all the neighbors get together, cook food, play games and listen to music – real music. The days would be filled with laughter and as the sun went down, the kiddies went to bed; all the adults would gather around the house who played the best music and dance until the sun came up again. Well, if you went to Hot 92.3 and Art Laboe’s Block Party – everyone felt like your neighbors of old and the music bought back memories you may not have reflected on lately.

Art Laboe

Music!! The kind with live bands playing as an artist or group sings songs with depth and meaning, lyrics that healed you and feed your soul. The days of the “live band” seem few and far between and music that touched your soul and not directed you to touch various body parts on a woman or man in a manner most (back in those days) would not have dared to say out loud is still alive – you just have to know where to go to hear it. Art Laboe pulled together some of the most amazing artists whose hits you are sure to remember…
