Power 94

1994 I was a thirteen year old young girl and during that year I was in between sixth and seventh grade life was good back then. I was growing up in my hometown Buffalo NY, that same year our NFL team the buffalo bills had lost another super bowl and that was the last one they lost. Being a kid at that time I spent a lot of time listen to the radio day in and day out. The station I mainly listened to at the time at the most was W.B.L.K 93.7 and at time the station was going under the moniker Power 94. At that time I did not realize it but that title had a very significant meaning to my childhood and being a music lover. In 1994 some great albums came out that year. As of recently my favorite rap artist Nas celebrated the 20th anniversary of his debut album Illmatic (Oh what a classic that is) That same year along with Nas there were more up and coming artist and also some other great album releases from established artist as well.

So here goes my top five albums of 1994

What About Him.....

Well I am pretty sure you know by now about  love and hip hop Atlanta stars Mimi Faust and her boyfriend Nikko infamous sex tape that  has been released through  vivid entertainment.  And you may heard about the true star of the video  which is the shower rod, I am not here to talk about the theatrics of the video. What I want to discuss is why is it that Mimi catching all the flak and not her boyfriend?  In 2014 double standard in my opinion is at an all time high. I am not applauding or condoning this video, my gripe is why is it every time one of these videos come out the women in these videos catches all the heat. Every single time from Pamela Anderson to Kim Kardashian, they were being labeled the slut, the whore you name it. Meanwhile Tommy Lee, Ray J and now Nikko walks away with a clean slate, and getting props from the male audience as usual. Its not cool at all both participants should be found at fault.  Since people want to point fingers. Yes Mimi is a mother and this is …

A change has come

A change is going to come Well this blog was originally called Shemacomplex, Hi I am Shema; any who I changed it to Fresh complex and the reason for the change is that I was looking for something different and something what’s the word? Or yeah fresh, well I am trying to be clever. Anyways what I realize is that the music nerd in me has completely taken over this blog as you can see below I do EP (extended play) reviews, gripe about how music use and all that jazz. Even though the blog is heavy on the music content, I still will speak on social issues that affect me and other as well. Welcome to a new beginning

Mixtape Sessions: The Black Hystori Project By Chyi the Prynce

Well I have introduced to you the extended play section of this blog and I now I am introducing you to another section called Mixtape sessions; originally a mixtape was actually music audio recordings on cassette tapes. In the hip hop culture the mixtape started as DJ’s putting live recordings of their shows on tapes to sell to the public as the 1990’s progressed mixtapes would become a collection of different rap artists acappella vocals being rhymed over instrumentals of R&B or other hip hop artists songs.  Mixtapes are no longer on cassette tapes  they either are on CD or digital download. Today’s hip hop artists put out Mixtape as a pre release before the album of original music comes out. The mixtape project that I will be highlighting today is from an artist currently signed to Kanye West’s good music label his name is Chyi the Prynce he is a rap artist based out of the Atlanta GA area. Chyi has been in the game for a minute and I am familiar with him and his other projects, …
