Bridget Kelly: Cut.... to Bridget Kelly EP

Now that I have got my feelings out about how Beyonce made us bow down and buy her album that magically appeared like a unicorn in the hood. Now we can move on to new artist and new music, today I want to talk about a EP that if it was a tape cassette it pretty much would be warped by now. The artist I am talking about is Roc Nation recording artist Bridget Kelly who has been making rounds on the music scene for few years now. She may be known as the girl who fills in for Alicia Keys on the song Empire of state of mind with Jay-Z when he performs it on tour.

2011 Bridget drop a EP called "Every girl" Which featured one of my favorite songs "Thinking about you" That is a dope EP definitely worth putting in your music collection. She has a new EP called Bridget Kelly EP. It has only six songs on there, starts off with "Goosebumps", "The Mouth" "Shit happens" "Friends" "Cocaine Heartbreak" and the very soulful "Special Delivery".

I love this EP from front to back, back to front and side ways, I am a self proclaimed music nerd there is no denying that. I listen to many different genres of music, my main type of music is R&B and if anyone knows me. Understands that I have not been happy with the current state of R&B Music for the last few years.

This EP brings life to the game of music and is in my top five favorite music albums that has came out this year. Her voice and tone is great, all the songs are sonically pleasing. Songs that I play back and forth is "Shit Happens" & "Friends". My thought if this is how her EPs sound than what will that album sound like? I expect nothing but wonderful things to come from Ms. Kelly.

I am loving the current state of R&B music today, I guess it can be called progressive R&B being that its has more of eclectic alternative tone but most importantly is the soul of it is coming back. And Bridget is definitely on the fore front of new artists who bring us back to the love and soul of this genre of music.

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…
