A$AP Ferg - Hood Pope [Trap Lord the Mixtape]
Earlier in March A$AP Ferg sat down with Q Deezy while in Philly for an exclusive interview. Accompanied with mob member A$AP Nast, Ferg discussed the first verse he ever wrote along with artists he’s worked with for his upcoming mix-tape. I can’t help but to still be infatuated with Ferg’s freestyles during this interview. Ferg spits a verse from a track on Trap Lord entitled Hood Pope. Amazingly three months later the anticipation for Trap Lord still lingers. Check out A$AP Ferg on The Q Deezy Show now!
Trap Lord is scheduled to release August 20th, 2013.

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.
