Put a ring on it

Well last night I was watching, VH1 reality show the black ink crew, and on last night's episode Puma the curator of the tattoo shop, told the other guys that he was going to purpose to his girlfriend, who is also the mother of his child. And he was met with some flack from the other fellas in the shop. The owner Cesar and Teddy was like they don't see the point in marriage it makes no sense, blah blah blah. Really can't be offended by two men who refer to the women they date as bitches, I mean they act as if there in high school chasing girls. Meanwhile Cesar is having baby mama drama and his current girlfriend just paid his child support, so he has no room to put another man down for doing the right thing which is stepping  up and being a man. The look on Puma face showed that he was disappointed by his friends. When I was younger I didn't see the point of marriage either, at one point and time the only example of marriage i seen growing up was my maternal grandparents, but that was short lived because my grandmother passed when I was ten. My mother was a single parent she didn't date, so i didn't have a template for a relationship or marriage. But now that I am older it do see the importance of marriage, it's not just a piece of paper it's a spiritual union that connect two people who have unconditional love for one another for life. Listening to the guys of BIC put down there friend because he want to get married is disheartening. I hear the jokes and things a lot of men say about marriage, but when are these guys going to grow up and respect the next man choices. Not everybody wants to sleep around for the rest of there life. I come from a generation of the broken homes and according to recent marriage reports more and more people are putting it off. I am single, I am not opposed to marriage, I have not met the right man that is suitable for it as of yet. If i never get married I am okay with that, I will never put down the next person who is heading towards marriage. In conclusion what I learned from last night episode is that sometimes its best to keep things to yourself and let it happen. And I love the fact that after Puma purpose to his fiance he walked up and said to Cesar, I don't have to worry about child support or baby mama drama. Well puma from your mouth to GOD ears let's hope not....

June 11th 1996 Mona Lisa released her debut 11-20-79

As I continue with my series of great albums of 1996, this album that I am featuring on this post is probably in my top 10 of  my top 100 favorite albums. I promise I will treat you all to that list one day soon, I have been mentally creating that list forever, as old albums stay the same, new albums come out so stay tuned. Anyway this album featured on today's post is an album that I still play on a regular basis to this day.

Movie soundtracks was big in the 90s, sometimes even bigger than regular albums, the Wayans brothers had this hilarious move called "Don't be a menace while drinking your juice in south central" a spoof on all the hood classic films in the 90s.  The soundtrack was even better, R&B singer Joe had one of the biggest hits that helped him become name in R&B. He had a song called "All The Things…

What's Going On?

I may talk about music and culture, It is my way to ease the pain with all the things I see going on in this world. But it is too much to ignore, last weekend there was bomb explosion in Mogadishu, Somalia. As of right now it has been reported that 300 lives has been lost due the terrorist attack.

I do my best to keep up with what is going on, whether it's in pop culture, local or national news. And with this recent terrorist attack. The one thing I don't see flooding up and down my time lines on my social media feed. Is  #PrayForSomalia, that is something that is very scarce across the feeds. But I bet your bottom dollar I can see the endless memes of bitches not being shit and its numerous likes.

That goes without fail, I posted a few links about this horrific incident and all I have heard is crickets. If I posted a joke and made fun of reality star. It would have been likes and comments galore. I am not tell…

1997 Part II

I was sixteen years old in 1997, music was life back then for me, and in that year I needed it more then ever, My freshmen year of high school was 1996 - 1997 and during that school year I was at a school I did not want to be at. In the city of Buffalo at that time, during 8th grade year students had to pick the top choices of the high school they wanted to go to. It was all based on grades during 7th grade year and first grade quarter of 8th grade.

Math was my weakest subject, and the schools that I chose at the time a student had to excel well in the area of math. And me not being on my A game it caused me to loose out on all of my choices of the schools I wanted to attend. So in fall of 1996 I was at my district school. While all my Jr. high friends was at the school of their choices living the high life.

I had to make a daily trip to south Buffalo, a place I did not want to be, what kept me calm to and from schoo…
