Nicki Minaj has graced the cover and photo spread of yet another magazine. This time Nicki is covering "King Magazine" for their March/April issue, out on newsstands now.
In an excerpt from the interview the leading lady of Young Money reveals what she looks for in a guy:
“Um, I look for someone who is calm, someone who is strong enough to not have to win every argument, someone who allows a woman to be her crazy self and someone with a conscience not to feel less of a man. You know, someone who is able to honor his woman but also bring out the freak in his woman.” Read More
If you are a hip hop lover and especially a fan of LIVE music, you need to be at U St Music Hall on Sunday, February 13, 2011. Twenty20, Life Massive & SolSource Presents The Indie Life: Concert Series. The series will feature Detroit's own Black Milk and his live band and also performing on the bill is SmCity, Godsilla & XO. Black Milk is one of the most known un-known great talents of the Hip Hop world. He has been compared to the great J. Dilla but still carries his own weight in the ever changing music industry. Some information to support the opening acts is as follows: SmCity (Founder of The Indie Life movement, The Indie Life: A Motion Picture Album short film which debuted on Okayplayer), XO ( 1/3rd of the critically acclaimed group Diamond District, and also an artist on Studio 43) & Godsilla (Creators & force behind UAU, the #1 open mic in Washington, DC).
The Indie Life: Concert Series is the creation of Hip Hop artist SmCity. With SmCity being a a very well respected artist based in the DC/MD/VA (DMV) area he realized that there needed to be a platform to showcase the indie talent in the correct light. His goal is to bring a nationally known indie artist to Washington, DC and pair some of the most decorated indie artist based in the DMV with that headliner. Tickets can be purchased at: http://theindielife.eventbrite.com. In addition, for your enjoyment before attending the show, The Indie Life: Concert Series Mixtape Vol.1 was created. SmCity states that "Incorporating a mixtape to accompany the series just made a lot of sense to me. For individuals who are not familiar with each artist, but still want to support Hip Hop, I want them to feel included as well." The mixtape is hosted by DJ 2 Tone Jones and can be downloaded by clicking the following link: http://hulkshare.com/q5vo0wok2aju.

This is for the single ladies out there like me, hard working and always on a grind. We would like to be in a relationship but, it's just so hard to find the right partner. Once you find "the one", it's always a problem like the lies, the cheating, the headache's and heartache's. Now, I'm not talking about all men, but when I'm speaking on this it has been my experience. Today, I'm always wondering to myself, when will the day come when I find "Mr. Right". Ladies in my situation listen up, I think that when he does come along we have to start thinking that this is a new guy and not shut him down or judge him because of the past relationships. Just go with the flow and have fun. What happened in the past should stay in the past and just let the new guy know that it's a long Way down, with that being said check out the video of the weekby Keyshia Cole"Long Way Down" This is the second single off her latest album "calling All Hearts".
P.S Feel Free to comment on this topic ladies and gents
Snoop Dogg, once again has managed to jump on another remix by an artist that hypes up their own city. We all know Snoop Dogg as "Mr.West Coast", but has featured on artist such as Jay-Z ft Alicia Keys song Empire State of Mind about New York and now Pittsburgh's own Wiz Khalifa's Black and Yellowhit. Snoop need to holla at us here in D.C for that "Welcome to D.C" remix by Mambo Sauce, I'm just saying: Check out Wiz Khalifa new remix to Black and Yellow ft Snoop Dogg, Juicy J, and T-Pain.

Okay, so who knew that Lloyd Banks had a new video out? I researched and just found other blogger's stating that the song has been out, but their has not been any real promotion for the video.The video is real sexy, Jeremih looks hot as usual. The ending of the video was a big surprise to me. Check out Music video from Lloyd Banks for “I Don’t Deserve You” featuring Jeremih. “I Don’t Deserve You” is the fourth single from Lloyd Banks’ third album H.F.M. 2 (The Hunger for More).
It may still be blisteringly cold out, but with the Pre-Fall 2011 collections just wrapped, no one in the fashion industry has this season’s winter collections in mind. Staying on-trend when all you want to do is cozy up by a fire is no easy feat, and while it may not be appropriate to bust out the all-white looks and oversized floral print dresses just yet, no one says you can't make those trends work in some capacity. By remixing what we already own, and doing some wise shopping, we can all avoid the faux pas of showing up to the Fall/Winter 2011 shows in Fall/Winter 2010 trends.
1. Pack on the layers by opting for a Pre-Fall 2011 favorite, the cape (think Yves Saint Laurent), over your top and under your coat.
2. When wearing a white piece, opt for one made out of a heavy fabric and, if possible, go for a creamy off-white shade.
3. Play up the nautical trend of the Pre-Fall season (seen at Tory Burch and Derek Lam) with some accessories. Striped scarves, hats, gloves, and mittens are all perfect options. Remember, you don’t have to limit yourself to the classic Breton stripes – pops of color are a great way to fight the winter doldrums!

On January 23, I had the opportunity to attend the one year anniversary of DMV helps Haiti event that took place at The Loft in Washington, D.C. Last year, after the Haitian earthquake, marketing consultant at Talk of DC Yodit Gebreyes decided to organize her friends to host a fundraiser to help the victims of the 7.0 measuring earthquake that killed over 200,000 people and displaced 3 million. They held two events, one at Busboys & Poet and larger one at the 9:30 club. That event was a huge success and raised $37,000.
To commemorate the one year anniversary of the quake, Gebreyes and crew put together a benefit concert featuring some of the most talented artists in the D.M.V (D.C MD VA) acts included DeAngelo Redman, Fat Trel, Kingpen Slim, XO, Yeah Lano, Da Phuture, Ra The MC, Greenspan, Locke Kashaul, Harmony Muzik, Bear Witnez, Amber Mimz, Alison Carny, Vince L, DJ QuickSilva fr WKYS and more. All of the proceeds from the concert will go to Partners in Health, a charity group that provides medical care and social services. To donate directly to the charity, please visit Partners in Health website atwww.pih.org
This is DeAngelo Redman’s second year participating in DMV helps Haiti benefit concert; he said, he “will continue to help as long as it takes to help the country of Haiti and will definitely participate in future charity events.” Check out DeAngelo Redman performance of “Dreams” featuring Mel. He also performed “Doin it” which will be his second release with Ricky Rozay.

This winter I've been really into leggings, ladies let's be real when it's freezing their is no need to go out in 10 below weather with a little mini dress on, instead rock a pair of leggings with a cool top, accessories, and hot pair of shoes like booties, knee or thigh high boots, pumps or rock them with a pair of cool sneakers like how Angela Simmons wears them as a casual look. Leggings come in many colors, for the edgy look rock a pair of hot pink or patterned leggings. You can wear them with an over sized sweater or shirt,a blazers, for the night look wear them with that cute mini dress.Check out these example.
