Keep your grass cut...


Where to begin??

I guess I'll start here...KEEP YOUR GRASS CUT, MAN. Everywhere you turn there are people looking to get ahead just as much as you are; the only thing is...there are certain individuals in this world that will do the unthinkable to win, make money, get a man/woman or become known. Snakes in the grass, if you will.

It's sickening to me to know that someone can completely sh*t on the very people or person that they swore allegiance to. How can you be for something 100% only to turn your back on it? How can you gas somebody up only to steal the chair out from under them? How can you tell bold-face lies knowing that you don't/won't/can't feel that way??

Snakes. Snakes. Snakes.

In this entertainment industry there are 10 snakes for every 1 genuine person, and if you're not in tune with your 3rd eye, you will get taken for a ride everytime! It's hard to I.D. a snake...they usually are the most charming, charismatic, coolest people you ever meet initially. They talk a good game, seemingly look out for you, give you advice -- all that good stuff. But when they strike, it's just like a cobra. Unexpected and extremely painful for the one that got bit.

You thought it was sweet. You thought you was a shoe-in. You thought everything was all good. Then you find out you were being played the whole time....it's rough. But, it's also the business. Everybody gets bit at one point in time, it's just what you learn from it and how you bounce back that determines who you are.

Are you going to run and hide? Or are you going to get up on your sh*t so that you can be ready for the next time you encounter a snake? If you have faith in what you're doing in life then an unseen snake in the grass shouldn't deter you from pressing forward. After all, the snake/serpent has always been the representation of the devil -- an evil agent placed in your path to get you off track. Stay focused. You have a purpose that must be fulfilled.

Keep your grass cut.

HOLLA.

Decisions, Decisions...


Here in the Carolinas we have alot of aspiring musicians of all types of genres; but, let me ask my NC hip-hoppers this -- If your buzz was on "bout to go National any moment"-status right now, would you turn down offers to partner with Rick Ross and/or Drake?

Well, that's what Wiz Khalifa just did. Some people agree, some people don't...but at the end of the day (did I really just say that? smh) it's not our career futures being decided. I heard a story that T.I. turned down Diddy because he was focused on building up Grand Hustle -- now look at him. Convicted felon. LMAO I'm playin, I'm playin. I think T.I. the last of a dying breed...one of my top 10 favorite MC's of all time.

Jump on over to allhiphop.com to soak up the rest of the story.

She'll file your taxes and spit hot fire....AT THE SAME TIME!!!


LMAO! OK...not quite at the same time, but both talents take up residence in that pretty, young lady up top.

Ciera Young -- Tax Office Director by day, Mz. AM (Analytical Muse) the spoken word artist by night.

She wants you to know that if you need a notary, some taxes filed, an amend filed, any debt resolved, a lien removed or a payroll provider -- go visit her @ TFS Tax (1801 N Tryon Street, Charlotte, NC 28206) or give her a call at 704-948-6966.

Go check her website out here.

Follow her on twitter here.

Go check out her creative side, along with her Triple Goddess family over at their blog (or on FB). They're always out and about in the city and making noise on the ever-present poetry scene in Charlotte. These ladies are the truth at what they do. Much love & respect.

HOLLA!

Carolina Love - Scion





Check out these two vids of my dude Scion. Presented by Raplord.com

I was able to meet homie a couple of months ago....and I thought I was a cool dude! This guy is the epitome of chill. I ride with him...PLUS, he was the first artist to get back at me about a project I'm putting together. Gotta respect that.

Also, if you're going to be in Raleigh on September 4th, check him out at the Brewery!!

So boom. Here you go. Distant Relatives: from a fan's perspective



Now I just need her to get that video clip on youtube and we in there like swimwear!

GOOD LOOK AGAIN CANDENCE!!

HOLLA.

You ever..

...saw somebody that could draw real good and say to yourself, "man, I can do that"? lol...it's funny because I used to swear I could draw when I was younger. I look at some of my old drawings now and be like -- negative. LMAO!

But on the real...this next dude I'm about to introduce to y'all can DRAW. For real.

A friend of mine from high school, Ashley, shot me a very genuine email putting me on to her talented family. I respect that because the #1 thing she said was "I SO APPRECIATE IT WE'RE TRYING TO GET IT IN". That's real to me because it shows humility and ambition...two critical things you need in order to succeed. So, this is her brother Sean, or perhaps better known by his pen name ~Onimempo -- a very, very talented artist right here in the Carolinas:




Check out dude's blog over here.

HOLLA.

AIN'T NOBODY UPLOADED PICS TO THE NAS CONCERT?!?!

lmao...I'm already salty I didn't get to go. Y'all need to hurry up.

for those that don't know, Nas & Damien Marley played in Charlotte tonight at the Fillmore. I wanted to go so bad, but my son's education comes first. PRIVATE SCHOOL AIN'T CHEAP. Well daycare ain't either, but either way I salute all my real parents out there. Especially the fathers.

Carolina Love - Erica Nichole

You know, we -- black people -- more importantly, all my black people in or from NC, aren't all about music and entertainment. There are some of us that have talents that most people in the world would never believe...

With that being said, I'd like to introduce you to Charlotte, NC's own, Erica -- San Francisco 49ers Cheerleader & Software Engineer.

I've had the pleasure of knowing this young lady since my high school days and I know she's always been about her business. So honestly, seeing what she does now doesn't surprise me. I'd be disappointed if she was anything less. :-)

So please...check out her out! Leave a comment! Let her know that NC supports her. Because the more comments we leave and views she gets, the greater her chances are to get invited to the USA Science and Engineering Festival. A great opportunity for her to advance her career in making noise in the software industry!!

All while reppin' NC.

HOLLA.

in slo-mo....

What up peoples? I don't know what's wrong with me but I'm in slo-mo right now....maybe I need to eat. I don't know. BUT....I got mad posts that I'm about to publish in a hot lil second. I'm trying to get my bruh show cd together too -- multitasking.

Check out more Grammer music here.

He'll be performing at Tremont Music Hall on October 26th as well. Doors open at 4 -- GO SUPPORT NC TALENT!

HOLLA.

Take that, take that, take that


hahahahahaha...I don't wanna believe Diddy keeps his artists under his thumb, but dude's perception in the hip-hop community is undenieble.

From the rumors about the fees he charges his artists to appear in their videos, to the rumors of the Mob-like fashion that Bad Boy is ran, to the factual disappearance of multiple former Bad Boy artists -- it's clear it made Diddy feel some type of way or else he wouldn't come out to address it:
"There's an off perception that needs to be addressed about me that I have ever robbed somebody or mistreated somebody. Or tried to be ruthless or whatever in this game. Like, all this year I've heard people say, 'Where's Carl Thomas, where's Black Rob, where's G.Dep? Where are these artists?' And for some reason they go ahead and equate that, cause those artists aren't with me, that I've done something wrong or malicious or conniving. It's something that I do have a problem with because they don't have no proof that I've ever done nothing like that." (Rap Radar)
Hahahahaha...ok Puff -- like we would be able to find out if they had proof or not. SMH.

In the name of Hip-Hop...

Say what you will about these two (I don't know buddy on the left) but Jim Jones and Russell Simmons are about to partner up do something major for the NYC community. Peep this excerpt from allhiphop.com:
Harlem, New York rapper Jim Jones will join Hip-Hop mogul Russell Simmons during the "Tsunami of Peace: Ride, Walk & Rally Against Violence" this week.

Jim Jones and Russell Simmons will be joined by rappers like Juelz Santana, Fat Joe, Maino, Salt and former New York giant Michael Strahan during the rally, which takes place in all five of New York's boroughs.
It's a beautiful thing when we are hip-hop artists can buck the trend and demostrate that we actually do care for our communities. Click here to read the whole article.
