Can She Live Part I

Google Images: Ciara and Russell

Well I guess the times we are living in has changed dramatically, It used to be when a woman had a child out of wedlock she was called a hoe or something worse. And I have never agreed with that at all and still don't agree with calling a woman names because she has a child before marriage.  It use to be that a child should come from marriage with both parents joined in one union under God.

That what we we're told over and over again since the beginning of the time. Well in the 21st century things has changed and not for the better.  R&B singer Ciara who has a child by former finance rapper Future. Now is pregnant with her second child with her husband Russell Wilson, quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks.  Once again she is with child by her HUSBAND Russell Wilson.  You would think this is a joyous occasion being that a new life is coming into this world.

Nope! social media decided other wise and has dragged Ciara like she killed a baby lamb on live television. She was called a hoe and many things, and even had folks questioning her baby announcement. Like how is this possible that she got pregnant so fast? That is why they got married she was already pregnant and so forth. Let just look at the fact the school system in the united states has failed a lot of people. Clearly they was not paying attention during sexual education and biology class, if they even teach that anymore.

Ciara and Russell was married on July 8th 2016 and the announcment about her pregnancy was made on her birthday which is October 25th 2016.  We do not know how many times they had sexual intercourse or if they were even trying to have a baby right now. However this is what married couples do they have babies. Black women get railroaded for being baby mamas and by our own community in most cases.

When Ciara had her first child by Future she was dragged during that time period as well. She was laughed at and mocked. Meanwhile Future has three other baby mothers and no one put him through the wringer.  Hell he is allegedly responsible for breaking up the marriage between former Chicago Bulls player Scottie Pippen and his wife. But where is the shame in what he has done being involved in that situation?..... Crickets

So Ciara and Future did not end up getting married after all, that happens things don't always work out like they suppose to. Russell courted her, then dated her and then married her; And he was called a simp for doing so.  Which I found to be ignorant as well, I believe everyone deserves true happiness and those two found their happiness in one another.

Whether it her latest album or who she involved with, Ciara cannot catch a break, at the end of day they are living out their wildest dreams and I say good for them.

Let Her Live!!!!

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…
