I love music, and if you read this blog, I am pretty sure you know that. And when I get the chance I love going to concerts. Last Monday May 15th 2017, I took a trip to downtown Phoenix for a night of live music at the arena. Typically the headliner that was performing that night, in past instances I would not even have thought twice about to his concert.

I would have shrugged my shoulders been like meh I'm good. In the beginning of Chris Brown career, he was a sweet and charming young boy with sprit of Michael Jackson in his dance moves. By 2005 I was already in my twenties, and already out of the bubble gum music phase. Don't get me wrong, I would tap my toes to, "Run it, Wall to Wall, Poppin, Kiss, Kiss" to name a few.

Pop darling Miley Cyrus recently did a interview with billboard magazine and she shared her thoughts on hip-hop music and why she not longer partake in it. "That’s what pushed me out of the hip-hop scene a little,” she continued. “It was too much ‘Lamborghini, got my Rolex, got a girl on my cock’ — I am so not that.” (Billboard). And twitter was like hell to the no Miley. In 2013 Mi…

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…
