A Song For You


Been listening to The Testimony of Gemstones mixtape (Gemstones? Lupe Fiasco? FNF? educate yourself if you're still lost). Anyway this song is one of my favourites off it.





A Song To You - GemStones






He samples one of my fave songs, A Song For You. Originally performed by Leon Russell, Ray Charles and Donny Hathaway amongst other stars have sung their own versions of the song.

Remember I Told You!


Orange has been and still is MY colour for the summer. I think its OSS [Oh So Sexual], can be very flattering if worn and accesorized the right way. Try and stick to one item of orange clothing at a time and do NOT match with pastel colours...PLEASE. Think simple patterns, simple cuts, simple lines. Pair with fuschia, tan, gold, dark wash denim and accesorize carefully.

Who Loves It?


***LINK***

Meanwhile, will Marsha and Natalie PLEASE get it together and give me back Floetry??? Life is harsh enough already, I shouldn't have to go through it without Floetry!

...back when my world was alright...

SupaStar - Floetry ft. Common



...its not right, but ITS OKAY!!!


Super Bad (Ft.T-Pain & Cee) - Sophia Fresh


Came across this song over at The FADER. I can't help myself...I Love IT! *sings* '...I'm superbad, they want some of my McLovin'!'

While it may not be quite right, its perfectly okay to love this song, afterall it IS superBAD *!*, not to mention, very catchy, despite the cringe worthy lyrics!

now who wants some of my McLovin??? No pushing and shoving please!!! : D

BTW, forgive me if my sentences are not aligned properly, either blogger is messing with me or I'm just retarded. Sadly, I suspect the latter. : (

Throwback Friday


I used to love this song!!! Still do! Anyone notice Black Thought in the vid?

Tanya Morgan? I love HER!!!


Okay, I love that Cuddle Bums song so much I decided to do my research on Tanya Morgan. Now, I've been known to exhibit blond traits (no offence if you happen to be a blond), so forgive me if I'm the only one who thought Tanya Morgan was the lady who provided us with the hook.

Anyway, this is what I discovered... Tanya Morgan is a Rap Group
LOL...yes, Tanya Morgan is a rap group and if you dont believe it, click on the link above and download the mixtape aptly titled...err... Tanya Morgan is a Rap Group! Thanks for the clarification!!! : D

Kinda reminds me of that scene in the movie Clueless where the guy asks Cher if she listens to Billie Holiday, to which she replies with great enthusiasm, 'Billie Holiday? I LOVE HIM!!!' *LOL*



They've got that Little Brother (Big Pooh & Phonte) vibe going on, which I love!!!

Starship (Produced by 9th Wonder) - Little Brother

Tanya Morgan consists of Von Pea, Ilyas and Donwill. They've also got an EP out at the moment called The Bridge. Their debut album, Moonlighting (2006) was amongst Questlove(The Roots)'s Top Albums of 2006 (number 6). I'm guessing they realised that quite a few people would confuse them for the newest soul singer on the block and the album cover is a play on that.



So, for those who didn't know, Tanya Morgan is a Rap Group! : D

Lazy Days

Its summer time, no job, no baby daddy (LOL), which means I have nothing to do apart from listen to music, blog, listen to music and then some more music. : D
As I was listening to Adam's Case Files - 88 Keys, this one song came up. Lets just say it is officially MY song; in more ways than one : ) / : (



Cuddle Bums - 88 Keys ft. Tanya Morgan

dOpE shit
don't just skim through it...LISTEN

download the whole mixtape here 88 Keys - Adam's Case Files

FaB LIST


I came across these Giuseppe Zanotti shoes first, a while ago (I already told you I have a penchant for looking at things I can scarcely afford... : D). Anyway, I was reminded of them again while I was watching Samantha (Sex and The City) get wasabi in places wasabi shouldn't be (her words not mine!)...LOL...and the good news is this...they are now at a reduced (discounted is such a harsh word) price of £358 over at http://www.matchesfashion.com/



Now I'm not going to argue that the heel isn't a tad bit ugly, but there's just something sexual about that fish bone! Shoot me!

Dope Sh*t

I believe that in music there should be no boundaries. Why try to pigeon hole everything??? I think Mickey Factz agrees with me and this is how I know... 

Mickey Factz - Machine Gun

The original song is by a British group called Portishead. I think the drums are dOpE and Mickey puts the beat to good use.

While you're at it, here goes Jacob's Ladder off Heaven's Fallout (dOpE, inspirational sh*t)

Album art for Heaven's Fallout - Loves It.

Déjeuner

The weekend is upon us, AGAIN, I swear this year is on steroids the way time flies! Anyway, what better way to spend it than making like idle rich people who have nothing better to do than shop and do lunch!!! Enter Ladurée. This Parisian pâtisserie/tea room, renowned for its heavenly macaroons, is located in Harrods and the decor is nothing short of sexual.


Black Tea Room



different flavours/colours of macaroons




Blackcurrant Violet Religieuse



I think this dress would be perfect, very lunch appropriate, plus it doesnt cling to the body; perfect for when you've had one too many macaroons!

Alladatsh*t


I just saw the Sex and the City movie, so in continuing with the theme of LOVE, here's Miss Michele's Love Is You...as she sings, '...when the chips are down, love will stick around'...*grunts* (I have underlying issues which I shall explain sometime...or never...LOL)
Chrisette Michele - Love Is You

just don't O.D and get you a Love Hangover...LOL

BTW, The In Crowd by Kidz In The Hall (Ivy League graduates Double-O & Naledge) is 'flyer than giraffe p*ssy' (LOL), Snob Hop (pinkies up YOU BASTARDS!), Mr Alladatshit, Inner MeDrivin' Down the Block (& its remix), Love Hangover, Paper Trail (heart Little Brother, the song's got Phonte on it) are all hot tracks! Its been out for a minute so you might wanna give it a listen (BUY).

Snob Hop

Mr. Alladatshit


So is Estelle's sophomore offering Shine, I can't say enough good things about it...Pretty Please with Cee-Lo (that man is a beast-I mean that in a good way*!*) is MY song! On No Substitue Love, she tells him, whoever he is; 'If I wanted to be part time, I'd be working at the checkout line!' You ain't never lied darling!!! Come Over, In The Rain, So Much Out The Way and You Are are all hot as well. 

Pretty Please

Meanwhile, out today is Coldplay's Viva La Vida (Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends)


Sounds like typical Coldplay which is not a bad thing at all, hey, if it ain't broke, why fix it, no??? Although, I think they were trying to focus more on the instruments on this album as on quite a few songs, I can barely hear Chris above the instruments. 
Look For: Lost, 42, Violet Hill, Strawberry Swing, Viva La Vida and Death and All His Friends.

Catch them @ the Brixton Academy in London tomorrow (16th of June)

Its About That Time...

Okay, I have come to the conclusion that there is nothing sexier [maybe there is, but thats not the point... : )] than a man rocking a sexual time piece...I'm a leather strap lover but I f**ks with chain bracelets too...its whatever, as long he looks absolutely sexual wearing it!!!

Try these...

Citizen Calibre 8700 £225


or this white and gold one by BREIL for under £170




or make like a friend of mine and get you a G-Shock...Zsa Zsa would approve, very Mr.West



or this one by Baume & Mercier £ 1325

and just because I like to look at things I can't really afford, I've decided to throw this one in as well


It's from the very exclusive HAUTLENCE brand, from it's HL line. The brand was created in 2004 and there is a limited and numbered edition of 88 pieces per model and retails for about 35, 000 Euros. The name Hautlence is an anagram of Neuchatel, a canton of western Switzerland, which is renowned for watchmaking. Sexual!!!

Better Late Than Never

Been away for the weekend so i might be a little late but here goes...

Nas 'Be a Nigger Too'
I believe that the word is only as powerful as you allow it to be


Nas - Be A Nigger Too (New)

Nas has also put out a mixtape with DJ Green Lantern called The Nigger Tape and if this is any indication of what his album is going to be like I suggest people run out and cop it when it drops cos this mixtape is FIRE!



Look for Association feat. Stic Man, Black President, Legendary, N.I.G.G.E.R (Slave and Master) and Be a Nigger Too (remix) feat. Dante Hawkins.

Moving from one controversial MC to another, was listening to Tha Carter III and noticed that he sampled one of my favourite songs by the great Nina Simone, Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood on the Don'tGetIt track...both the original and the sample are HOT!

Here's Nina Simone's Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood

L*O*V*E B*O*M*B







Love bomb is nOice but the remix for everyone nose is FIRE!!. It features my booOoo Kanye (can u say SEXUAL) as well as Lupe and Pusha T. Loves it!!

***zsa zsa***

Drip Drop

I know you love it as much as i do when new/ unreleased music leaks. Theres nothing better than getting music before your supposed to. With that being said, I'v got something for you.





I ADORE Destiny's Child and although they have supposedly retired, we all know its only a matter of time before we hear some new music from the ladies; as there have already been rumours of the groups reunion with an extra member... Solange (who by the way; may i say, is on top of her game right now). Anyway, this tune still has that similar independent woman vibe (well it is called "Gots my own") and it pretty much a typical DC3 song. Listen
