Chris Brown Apologizes

Check out 'Cry No More' by Chris Brown:

R.I.P Big L

For all you 'Hip-Hop Heads' out there, you already know about Big L or atleast you should. If you don't here's a little excerpt. And to add some 'credit' to this post, if you're a Kanye fan, he definitely knows about Big L and his lyrics. In fact, he used his name in his song 'The Glory' off of Graduation:
"I hear people compare themselves to BIG a lot/ You know BIG and Pac/ You know to get it hot/ I guess after I live I wanna be compared to BIG/ Anyone Big Pun, Big L, or Notorious!!"

Here's a little knowledge about the man himself:

Lamont “Big L” Coleman was equal parts freestyle king, storytelling genius and punch line specialist. Sadly, a week before he was reported to sign to then-conglomerate Roc-A-Fella Records, he was brutally gunned down just blocks from his Harlem home. But to those who knew him and knew of him, Big L was more than just a hometown hero, he was a legend in his own right. Check out a playlist of his music below.

"Where is Waldo?" - Inaugural Edition ft. Lumidee

So I know you all know how it is listening to the radio, you hear a song that you like by a new artist, watch the video, make it your ringtone, put it on your MySpace, then you learn the lyrics to the point you don't even want to hear it anymore!!

Well as this happens to the best of us, we begin to like the artist more
and starve for a follow-up single with the same caliber. Well, what happens when the artist FALLS OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH?!

Well from here on out, when I'm listening to songs randomly, I will cast a "Where is Waldo?" report to try and find the artist.

Now don't bother me if I cast a report on an artist and they've actually put out tracks since their first hit and I just haven't had the time to hear it yet.
Thanks in advance!!

Well I would like to kick this off with Lumidee.
The woman responsible for the 2003 hit "Uh Oh" feat. Busta Rhymes & Fabolous! WHERE HAS SHE BEEN SINCE??

I don't really know but I was listening to Pandora and one of her songs came on entitled "In It For the Money" feat. Snoop Dogg and I was NOT impressed. Sorry but this song just didn't do it for me. I think it has a lot to do with the hook?! 'I'm only in it for the moneeeyyy, this whole industry is funnnnyyy'....what the?!

So anyway, to wrap up this report, Lumidee released an album in 2007 entitled
Unexpected and it sold 100,000+ in the U.S & 200,000+ in the UK!? Enjoy "Uh-Oh" & Check out "In it for the money" and let me know what you think!


~Peace & Soul~

Etta James wants to kick Beyonce's...well you know ;-)

Seems like Etta James wants to go in on Beyonce', and it was all on tape.

During a recent appearance in Seattle a few nights ago, Etta told the crowd: “You know, YOUR President, the one with the big ears-he ain’t MY President-had that woman singing for him at his Inauguration. She’s going to get her ass whooped.”

She went on asking “How dare Beyonce' sing MY song that I been singing forever.

H I L A R I O U S!!!

And for the record...I thought Etta James was dead??
