Solange ft Kendrick Lamar - Looks Good With Trouble (Remix)
Many people sleep on Solange Knowles as she’s unfortunately overshadowed by her sister Beyonce. Depsite having to overcome comparisons and criticism Solange has definitely established a place in the music industry. Most are unaware of Solange’s most recent EP ‘True’ that debuted on the US Billboard 200. ‘True’ contains seven 80’s-like tracks that are very reminiscent of the funk/soul era of R&B.
Solange has now added Kendrick Lamar to the mix of one her tracks off ‘True’ as a promo single. ‘Looks Good with Trouble’ has just been remixed to feature the on fire Kendrick Lamar. This combination of sound suits the track so well as Kendrick never fails to execute on a feature.

Have an agenda..
A couple nights ago I attended a Mayoral Forum bringing together all former mayors of Charlotte that are still living today. Former Charlotte mayor Richard Vinroot stated during the forum that “It is not enough to want to be mayor, have an agenda.” This statement resonated with me instantly as I applied it to my own life. Specifically in my environment so many people seek positions of leadership without an agenda. Individuals feel worthy or qualified for certain roles and pursue them without a plan or purpose. This social pandemic has had a deeper effect on our culture than just individual status. Our culture is beginning to be built on the principle of ‘do what it takes’ in respect to achieving certain goals or tasks. This idea of involving yourself in areas even if you lack interest may seem necessary but at what expense? We are gradually adapting values that ultimately kill the concept of genuine. Who is really passionate or who is just trying to get ahead? As a result people are conforming to a culture that is unknowingly decreasing individuality. Whether joining a certain organization or becoming a member of a club. many become involved in certain areas without any true interest. I clearly understand that being involved in things we truly don’t care for is necessary; But where is the line drawn? Where is the line drawn between requirement and fabrication? We are losing what it means to live a life of authenticity and integrity. A sincere concern for what we impact and become involved with is the meaning of a genuine life.
Have an agenda, have a purpose. Live an authentic life.
After a somewhat considered hiatus, many have questioned whether or not Kanye West would produce another groundbreaking project..
I can just imagine the frenzy of fans rushing to various locations last night to witness Kanye West make history. In just the past 24 hours we were shown once again Kanye’s phenomenal ability as an innovator in artistry. Kanye West premiered his new song “New Slaves” last night setting the Social Network World on fire. The visual of “New Slaves” was projected onto 66, yes 66 different buildings at various locations. Sites included Northwestern University in Chicago, the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, and even the Bondi Junction in Sydney, Australia! Fans that had no access to seeing the premiere first-hand scrounged social networks such as Vine, Twitter and Youtube to catch a glimpse of the phenomenon that had taken over their timelines.

The Vince ‘Nina’ Flat featuring Delmy Rivera
Over the years I have taken a keen interest for Women’s Fashion due its endless versatility and appeal. Going skinny trousers with flats has been a go-to look for quite a while and here it’s executed flawlessly. The balance of proportion is what sets an outfit apart and Delmy Rivera clearly knows how to accomplish that harmony.
“Every minute, Kobe Bryant makes $162.55. By comparison, a family doctor—what most of us consider a decent occupation!—makes $1.35. In that same amount of time, an elementary teacher makes $0.43 (yes, forty three cents). And a minimum-wage worker pulls in just over a dime—a mere $0.12.”

On April 29, 2013, President Barack Obama said he would nominate Mayor Anthony Foxx to be the Secretary of Transportation.
What if God was a her? Would I treat her the same? Would I still be runnin’ game, on her? In what type of ways would I want her? Would I want her for her mind or her heavenly body?
