Everyone likes to look fresh, that a known fact, we all have our own styles and even favorite brands that we wear, and it is even when your favorite celebrity comes out with their own clothing line. 

The latest celeb to come out with his own clothing line is Chris Brown, and team breezy is over joyed about this. Not quite, when brown released the pieces and prices to the clothing line black pyramid some of his fans were less than thrilled with what the prices are.

A couple of his shirts are priced around seventy to ninety dollars and of course in the age of social media, some folks took to his page to express their disappointment. And in typical Breezy fashion he was very vocal on the opinions of his fans displeasure with his clothing prices, so brown states “What the f*** you be talking bout when you say buy 10-15 albums? How much is that b**th?”  and then he continued with, “You b***h n***as killing over Jordan’s waiting outside for yeezys for days”

Mr. Brown has young a fan base that are mostly young adults, and mostly young women, so let’s look at the details the average person who is young adult between the ages let’s say they are 16-25 years old.  that is pretty much around the age range of the average Chris Brown fan. So in some regards depending on the fan, more than likely parents are still buying their clothes, some still get an allowance or work part time jobs after school.

And those fans that are in the higher end of the age spectrum in his fan base, are either college students, who pay money for books, student loans, room and board and all the things that comes with being a college student . And some maybe branching out on their own from home, maintaining a car and apartment, just getting started in the world so there income is not as disposable.

Fans may have brought ten to fifteen albums when he was singing "Wall to Wall" and the people killing over jordans escape route is lame. First of  all people are loosing their lives over a sneaker is a serious matter and instead of berating folks maybe you Chris could lend your voice and aid help stopping the sneaker violence. 

And those that stand in line and wait for yeezy's are not your fanbase bro so let that go my friend. Instead of snapping back to fans who complains about your clothing prices, engage in conversation with and provide reasons why your prices are like they are. 

At end of the day fans are the reason artist are able to thrive in their platform of creativity, if you turn your back on them then who are going to buy your clothes.

Pre 911 July 2001 I was twenty years old and boy that was an interesting year, to say the least. And as always  my summer tradition I made my trip to the local record store. During this month one of my all time favorite artist was releasing their third album which went to become a forever favorite of mine and is on my lifetime music playlist
On July 17th 2001, Aaliyah released her third and final self titled "Aaliyah" after a five year full album hiatus from her second album one in a million. At the time she had finally released a full album, of course to hold the fans over. We had the singles from the movie soundtracks  such as 1998 Doctor Do Little  SDTK "Are You That Somebody?"  and in 2000 Romeo Must Die SDTK, "Try Again, I Don't Wanna, Come Back In One Piece and are you Feeling Me?.
It was an exciting time for Aaliyah it was a year after a successful movie and soundtrack, she had entered into legal adulthood She w…

What's Going On?

Google Images: Devastation from Bomb Attack in Mogadishu, Somalia

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…
