    Did someone say QUEEN BEE? Lil kim said she wants IN on this Flawless remix!! Now you all know Kim was going to respond to Nicki Minaj especially since she said she's the Queen of Rap. My females are doing their THING and I love it. Kim verse is actually cool. Almost sounds like the old QB. Remy's home, new female artists making noise in the game. Hip-Hop is a competitive game, keep it friendly ladies and be sure to BRING IT!!

    Iggy Azalea looks mighty F A N C Y on the August 2014 cover of Cosmopolitan Australia. I'm super proud of her success. Her singe "Fancy" has spent six weeks at no. 1 on the Billboard 100 and her duet "Problem" with Ariana Grande is at no. 2. Ok Iggy do your thing mama. I remember posting on her a coupe of years ago and to see her doing her thing makes me want to KEEP PUSHING.

Angie Martinez Resigns From Hot 97 And Heads To Power 105.1

Angie Martinez Resigns From Hot 97 And Heads To Power 105.1

06/19/2014  |  No Comments


    Yesterday the net was buzzing after radio legend Angie Martinez shared the news of her resignation from Hot 97 radio station after 15 years on the air. I was completely shocked. Angie Martinez is a female radio personality that I admire. So when I heard she was leaving I thought it was going to be for a different nope!! I guess its no longer about being HOT.Its about making POWER moves. Get into the story below.
    It looks like Angie Martinez — “The Voice of New York,” as even President Obama calls her — isn’t going too far after all.
    On Thursday morning (June 19), Clear Channel announced that Martinez would be joining the team at rival radio station Power 105. 1, in addition to airing on 103.5 The Beat in Miami. She’s set to host a new afternoon show, running fro 2 – 6 p.m in New York. Power 105 and Hot 97 have been fierce competitors in recent years, so the move is definitely unexpected.
    Martinez announced her resignation on-air Wednesday, and that was followed by an Instagram post saying goodbye. The outpouring of reactions was immediate, with colleagues and artists like Q-Tip paying their respects.
    “This was one of the toughest decisions I’ve ever had to make but ultimately it is time to move on, to grow and to be challenged in new ways,” she said in her farewell post. “Saying goodbye is always emotional and bitter sweet but I am extremely excited about the future.”
    Hopefully her next move is the best move.

    For ELLE's seventh-annual Women in Music Issue, they selected Miley Cyrus to be their cover girl. But I was actually more excited to see the girls inside! Yessss Iggy Azalea & Angel Haze repping real hard for the Hip-Hop genre.
    Angel Haze pulls off what must be a very heavy Dolce & Gabbana coin belt with matching earrings and a silk fringe top by the fashion house. Iggy, meanwhile, wears both some crazy bedazzled arm cuffs by Maison Martin Margiela and the wet-hair trend. SLAYED!!!

Nas Celebrates A Milestone: Rapper Set To Release

Nas Celebrates A Milestone: Rapper Set To Release “Time is Illmatic” Documentary At Tribeca Film Festival

02/19/2014  |  No Comments


    Illmatic was/is the blueprint for many rappers coming up in the game after Nasty Nas. The album was a classic and I am eager to see the documentary "Time Is Illmatic".
    via MTV
    It's hard to believe that it's been 20 years since Nas dropped Illmatic, on April 19 1994, so the Queens rapper is celebrating the milestone with a little refresher course on his debut album.
    Three days ahead of the LP's anniversary date, on April 16, Nas will kick off the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival with the premiere of his new documentary "Time is Illmatic." The film, produced by One9, Anthony Saleh and Erik Parke, retraces his influences and journey to create the album, and explores its lasting effect on hip-hop culture, which has already spanned two decades.
    Nas will follow the premiere with a live performance of the entire album, making it a pretty special event.
    In addition to debuting his documentary at the Tribeca Film Festival, the Queensbridge rapper will also drop Illmatic XX in April, featuring both original and remixed versions of the songs that appeared on his original album.
    Still, that's not all. Nas will be rolling out a new, half-hour autobiographical drama series called called "Street Dreams" on Xbox. The series will be set in the 90s in Queens, New York and follow the early stages of his career. A premiere date hasn't been announced as yet.
