Today has been epic! I can’t believe it! I met, The Queen of Rap, LIL KIM.

Lil Kim arrived at the event but due to circumstances out of her control, Lil Kim was unable to perform at this event. This led to, The Queen of Rap, holding a meet and greet session at the ANdAZ Hotel in Liverpool Street. You can watch the video below to see the fans waiting outside for The Notorious K.I.M.

Paying Homage

Today I feel like its time to throw some light on aspects of the music industry and its preoccupation with young talent. From the likes of Nicki Minaj, Drake (Young Money) it seems that they are intent with promoting a new movement which represents an in with the new and out with the old mentality. I feel like the young black generation are missing a piece of the puzzle.

In trying to gain attention and mainstream fame they are neglecting the very basic duty which all humans have to do; which is paying homage. In order to excel in life it is necessary to acknowledge those who have laid the foundations apon which you walk on.

I’m not  just bleating on about Nicki Minaj vs. Lil Kim which is a microcosmic aspect of my point! What I am mainly talking about is the discourse of history which is neglected by the younger generations. We live in society which is full of instant gratification, sampled music, credit cards and free sex. People are growing apart from their knowledge of their past.

I believe today it is time to start paying homage to those who have helped you achieve your goals and contribute to the person you are today.

Love Hurts!

Inspired by my previous blog titled ‘R&B is Dead!’ I went off on one of my youtube never ending journey’s flicking through clips of R&B artists trying to establish which were in my opinion credible and authentic.

On this trip I faced a further dilemma. One of the artist on my list of authentic R&B artists, was receiving a lot of criticism on the youtube blogs. I couldn’t understand why people were being so rude!

The artist in question is Nivea. But what was all the fuss about? Well she had a baby after a divorce. Yeah that’s it really!

Ok maybe that’s not the full story!!

Nivea’s Ex-Husband is the R&B singer and super producer The Dream. And if you did not know well now you do. He is the man behind Rihanna’s Super-Hit ‘Umbrella’ and has also produced some Nivea’s music. Yes Nivea was married to The Dream and they have three children together. After the split The Dream moved on to Christina Milian who gave birth to his fourth child.

After Nivea’s divorce with The Dream. Lil’ Wayne and Nivea recently became proud parents of a healthy baby boy. Lil’ Wayne had another child in the same year by another women and is now in prison.

SO thats all the B.S! Out of the way.

I think the critic’s need to grow up. People get together and sometimes split-up. Thats life! What that has to do with the quality of the music they produce is NOTHING!

Nivea’s new music video ‘Love Hurt’s’ is quite self explanatory if you ask me. I think it highlights the dynamic to the word love. The video is an emotional roller-coaster and compliments the lyrics. Watch the video below. And look out for the cameo. Continue reading
