Posh Interviews Meek Mill & John Wall Kicks For Kids! [Event]


I had the opportunity to interview Meek Mill and John Wall during the Kicks For Kids charity event that was held at Shoe City at the Mall at Prince George's. I had the chance to ask both Meek Mill and John Wall about the charity event and their contributions,in which both gentlemen were honored to give back to the charity and to make underprivileged and sick kids happy to receive a pair of new sneakers. 

During the interview I also had the chance to ask Meek Mill about his twitter rants about "the haters" that he is faced with on a daily basis, also associates that were not around during his come up.He stated that he is not going to let haters or his past from stopping him from making music. 

Meek Mill is also going to be dropping a new mixtape with his MMG label mate Wale as well as a new album in 2012 so, look out for both dropping in 2012. 

As for John Wall I spoke to him about his up coming season with the Washington Wizards and he stated how he is looking forward to this season and the fans support. 

I joked with John about the John Wall dance, which was created by him as a  remix of the dance "The Dougie", and I asked him how did it feel that the dance was still hot. He stated that although the dance craze is still going he really doesn't do the dance anymore especially with the NBA rules. 

I had a blast speaking to both gentlemen and was excited that both men were giving back and involved in community charity events. Both men gave out autographs to fans and later Meek Mill performed at the 9:30 club. The event raised over $5,000 providing D.C's sick and underprivileged kids with 500 pair of sneaker.  To learn more about Kicks For Kids go to : www.sneakersuite.com

I would like to give a special thanks to the event coordinator Ian Callendar & my videographer/photographer Deryck "Jupitar" Seasons Greeting & Happy New Year:

Feature: Up and Coming D.M.V Hip Hop Artist: Petey Green [Interview & Video]


Hey DC, Maryland & Virginia with many new artist on the scene, I had the opportunity to interview Petey Greene one of many up and coming artist from the area. What is most unique about Petey Greene is that his sound is very unusual for our area. He has that Cali boy swag and he sounds dope. Check out my interview with Petey Greene and tell me what you think:

Posh: Tell me a little about yourself and how did you get into the rap game?

Petey Green: Is really Pascal Nuwame.  A musician from Silver Spring MD. I was born in DC and I've been involved with music in the dmv since a very early age. I caught on to rap in the 9th grade and started writing songs and performing at rec centers and churches in the area. I remember spitting some rhymes for my crew and they just looked at me crazy like i was dmx or jay-z or something. I took that motivation from my friends and I've been rapping ever since.

Posh: So, there are so many hip hop artist from the D.M.V area, what sets you apart from them? How do you compare yourself to other artist from the area?

Petey Green: The difference between me and a lot of other dmv artists is first and foremost I've been rapping on and off since 1999. That's over ten years doing my thing. I've been through almost everything an artist can go through before making it big in the game, from bad record deals to death, jail, beef and just trying to survive and make it in life period. I think I have a story to tell, and also just my creativity and truthfulness when I rhyme. My overall natural energy, stage presence on stage and interaction with the crowd sets me apart. I don't think anyone else can duplicate my style because its unique to my experiences in life.

Posh: That's pretty dope to hear. Not a lot of artist have that experience that you have and it's great to know that you have a story behind your rhymes. So, now when I first met you at the Lounge of III showcase, I asked you if people say you look like Devin the Dude and you said "yes". You also spoke about how you both have the same sound. Can you elaborate on that?

Petey Green: Lls yea I remember you saying that. I've heard that before, I've also heard Omar Epps and some other crazy stuff. I think people like to put us together because my style is laid back and I'm not afraid to make u laugh. Me and Devin share in common our love for Mary Jane, fine women, and hip hop music. That's as far as I'm going with that one tho.

Posh: Haha I feel you on that. So, have you worked with any artist from the area, if so who? Who are some other artist that you worked with or would like to collaborate with?

Petey Green: I've had the pleasure of working with a lot of great and legendary artists from the dmv. Of course my brothers The 211 Crew, The Band Subject to Change, Evie G, Acito and Manny Perez who does a ot of production for me along with Phenom, Adversary, Ghost, Teardrop, Shellz, Pressure Boy (RIP), Tokes Eastwood, Carl Rushing who is a great engineer, Dj Momo and a bunch of others. Im getting ready to go into the studio with my man Tricky Dice soon also. 

Posh: Okay, that dope. So, who are some of influential artist that has inspired you?

Petey Green: I think all the music I listen to is influential in one way or another. I like soul music a lot so artists like Teddy Pendergrass, Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield always have some effect on how i approach a lot of songs. As far as rappers I consider Devin the Dude, Scarface, Ugk, Biggie Smalls and Outkast some of the most ingenious rappers ever and they all have definitely influenced my sound.

Posh: That's crazy listening to your music, I thought you had a soulful sound along with that Cali swag. Can you tell me about any current projects and shows that you have coming up?

Petey Green: Right now I'm working on a few projects. Me and my partner E.Waters from the group P-N-E just dropped our mixtape "Since Ceana" which is doing well online. We're also finishing up our album "The Catalina Winemixer Soundtrack". Me and Trust from The 211 Crew are finishing our debut self titled album also which should be coming early 2012, and I'm set to be going into the lab to start working on my new solo mixtape this month which will be called "The Greenhouse".

Posh: Last, I love fashion what is your fashion style and how do you incorporate that into your style as a hip hop artist?

Petey Green: My style of fashion is really whatever I'm feeling for the occasion. I am comfortable in a white t some fresh Levi's and some Jordans, but I like to get clean sometimes and keep it funky on some grown man shit. I just went out and bout a couple tailored suits the other day so I got something to rock at the next players ball.

Posh: Versatility, that's what's up!   
Can you tell the readers how they can contact you and where to find your music?

Petey Greene: Your readers can catch up with me on twitter @PeteyGreen211 reverbnation.com/peteygreen211, youtube.com/northstarunlimited .

New Video: Cory Gunz Ft. Meek Mill – YMCMB MMG


This joint go so hard. I spotted Cory Gunz new video featuring Meek Mill on i am boi genius site see what he has to say here: 

Cory Gunz reps his posse as well as Meek Mill rep his and the two come together for “YMCMB MMG“, a joint collaboration from the young emcees–who are both respectively diamonds in the rough of said crews. The track is lifted from Son Of A Gun, Gunz’ mixtape that dropped earlier this year.
Meek Mill is on fire at the moment, featured on some of this seasons’s most-buzzed about records, after being listed as XXL’s “Freshman Class of 2011″. Gunz made a name for himself with his feature on Lil’ Wayne’s platinum-certified “6 Foot 7 Foot”, which debuted in the top tenth of Billboard’s Hot 100, but lacked label hyping from Young Money Entertainment thereafter, leaving fans to wonder whether he’d ever see the release of an LP.
See what he delivers until then in the John Colombo-directed video…

Recap: Celebrity Make-Up Artist Maise Dumbar BluffaJo Spa & Lounge Featuring Bluffa Jo Cosmetics!

Minx Nails service was excellent.

On December 14th I attended the "On The Road" with Bluffa Jo event in Silver Spring, Maryland.  This event was fun fun fun! I felt like a little girl that got to play in her mother's make-up box that evening. 

So, you might be thinking to yourself  who or what is BluffaJo

BluffaJo is described as a person that "makes a conscientious effort to look their best from head to toe."  A BluffaJo's face is flawless and fierce. A BluffaJo is a sensuous, sophisticated, cosmopolitan individual. While he or she has an ultra and visceral air of confidence coupled with class, the one referred to as a "BluffaJo" never leaves home without looking their absolute best. BluffaJo is the local vernacular in Liberia used to describe one who embraces inward and outward beauty. Although BluffaJo is a term out of the heart of West Africa, the spirit of a BluffaJo transcends all cultures.

I had an opportunity to sit down with Maise Dumbar owner of BluffaJo Spa Lounge & Cosmetics to speak about her cosmetic line and BluffaJo Spa & Lounge perks. Here is what she had to say:

Posh: Thank you for inviting me to this great beauty event, so I let the viewers know who is a BluffaJo woman. Can you tell me about your goals and how far you want to go with your make-up & skin care line?

Maise Dumbar: My goal is to be the M.A.C. of Africa.  I'm very passionate about what I do.  The fact that I made it here, I have to make it there.  I've been blessed to do some events since I started from fashion week and doing a lot of fashion events. That has been a blessing.

Posh: So, tell me what was your inspiration to start BluffaJo cosmetics? 

Maise Dumbar:  My inspiration was the death of my mother. My mother passed away and I wanted to do something that would create and empire for my family.

Posh: That's very touching and inspirational.

Posh: So, now that you have started your cosmetic line, what differentiates your brand from the other popular brands?

Maise Dumbar:  The name is catchy, and what sets us apart from the M.A.C's, NARS, and Bare Minerals is that we're not only a mineral based make-up, but also skin care; which is my background. We are a mineral based make-up with more gold colors that are very conservative. You can use the color for everyday use, night, and runway.  When you think of BluffaJo cosmetics you think of the everyday woman, but also a fashion conscious woman.

Posh: Thank you Maise for taking the time to speak with me about BluffaJo cosmetics & Spa Lounge. It's absolutely fab. To make reservations for BluffaJo cosmetics, skin care, and nails go to www.bluffajo.com or call 1-866-585-4771

Swagga Jackin Alert: Rihanna vs. Photographer Solve Sundsbo [VIDEO]


So, on my daily web surfing on the internet I saw this post on my fairy blog mother site Necole Bitchie about how Rihanna's director swagga jacked the look for her new video. The same thing happened with Kelly Rowland a few months back in her video. Here is what the blog post said check it out: 

It was just months ago that Rihanna settled a lawsuit out of court after famed photographer Dave LaChapelle sued the singer for stealing and copying his work in her music video for ‘S&M.’ Now RiRi’s under fire yet again for her latest music video, ‘You Da One’ directed by Melina Matsoukas. It’s pretty obvious that many of the scenes were influenced by ‘A Clockwork Orange’ but now a fashion photographer by the name of Solve Sundsbo claims Rihanna blatantly stole concepts of the video from his ’2008 Numero 93′ collection photo shoot.
The only difference between the two shoots is that Rihanna sports a blonde bob wig and the woman in Solve’s photo rocks a black bob. According to Ace Show Biz:
Both Riri and Melina haven’t responded to the plagiarism claim. Instead, the Bajan beauty continued to hype up the video on her Twitter. She gave update on how many views the clip collected on YouTube by retweeting her fans’ messages. “#YouDaOne video was released a day ago and already has nearly 4 million views,” she posted before adding hours later, ” ‘You Da One’ video has 7,060,407 views.”
Ironically, Melinda Matsouka also directed the ‘S&M’ video that took concepts from David LaChapelle. Are video directors running out of ideas or is it the norm to steal concepts from photographers in hopes that they will take it as paying ‘homage’.
