Sisterhood of Hip-Hop


I’ve never really been a fan of reality shows, whether its The Housewives, BGC, LHHA or some other similar show I never watch them because I consider those obstruction to our society and promotes too much negativity. Surprisingly I tuned into to Sisterhood of Hip-Hop this evening and I actually liked it. It features Brianna Perry (@BRiANNAtheYRB ), Siya (@Siya), Diamond (@DiamondAtl), Nyemiah Supreme (@NyemiahSupreme) and Bia (@BiaBrokeMyHeart). This show is showing us how the these young women are on the road to accomplishing their dreams of being femcees (female rappers). Usually in a premier of a show its filled with drama, hating and tons of negativity, but this was the contrary.

Brianna P. is not only a rapper in the making, but she’s also a college graduate who has a back up plan just in case her rap career doesn’t go as planned.

Diamond, former member of the group Crime Mob was in the spotlight as a teen, but she fell off for a while, but she’s still young, trying and not giving up. Usually women in her predicament would be bitter and blame their problems on the world. I don’t see this in her.

Siya and Bia both seemed to have it hard growing and it seems as if they overcame a lot problems and worked to be where they are right now, which just proves that hard work does pay off.

Nyemiah wasn’t really featured in this episode too much, so there isn’t much to say about except for the fact that I think Siya’s may be attracted to her which may cause for some drama in the future episodes.

This show is off to a good start and I wish all of the ladies so much success. I’m looking forward to watching and blogging every week, so stay tuned.

She Did That: The Queen of Rap Diss The Queen of Rap?

Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj has been going out for far too long and after Lil Kim’s recent diss on the ‘Flawless (Remix)’ to Nicki Minaj reaffirmed everyone beliefs that Lil Kim really needs to have a seat. Check out the diss below before I go any further.

What’s ironic about all this beef is Nicki emulated Kim when she first came out and she even showed loved to her on more than one occasion. Lil Kim it took upon herself to diss Nicki Minaj calling her a copycat, but I guess she didn’t understand that Nicki most likely considered her a role model, not her competition.

I do like Nicki’s music, but lets be honest they both sell sex and their bodies, which is where the majority of their fans and fame come from. Lil Kim needs to have a seat and let Nicki be the ‘Queen of Rap.’ She has a newborn and yet she’s worried about Nicki. Yes, her priorities are definitely screwed up.

Nicki and her beef with Iggy is humorous to me as well, but that’s a whole different blog for a different day. These people who been out for a while just need to realize that they’re not always going to be the hottest thing out. They call it beef, but I call envy

Sorry Bey: Jay-Z’s “Alleged” Mistress Speaks

Yes! Jay-Z’s alleged mistress (Liv) has come out, but according to her he wanted the goods, but she’s nobodies side chick, even if he is a bad, million dollar boy.
She claims she was going to respect Beyoncé until she “came in her lane.” I don’t recall Beyoncé addressing Liv, but I could’ve have missed it (sarcasm).
Of course Liv wants her five minutes of fame, but I believe there is some truth to her song. She did have a few relevant points and a lot of irrelevant as well. Check out the song below. I know Beyoncé fans are on full attack. How ironic is that Bey and Nicki both get dissed after the remix to ‘Flawless’ dropped!?

2. A bank account with three months’ living expenses in it.

3. Only the phone numbers, Facebook friends, weekend plans, and roommates she actually wants.

4. A best friend who is like a sister.

5. A space of her own.

6. A good idea of what she needs in a romantic relationship, not just what she wants, or what she thinks she needs, and the willingness to explore different people and other ideas to find what exactly that is.

7. A closet of what she considers to be her “staples,” and among these things, something to wear to an interview, funeral, wedding, impromptu Friday night drink at a casual bar and dream date if ever someone were to call…

Dope Chick: MarCista Bew For EyeKisses

I live for women that are doing something great outside of the regular 9-5. we don’t have to be confined to work and then straight home to cook and clean and take care of our kids. But, MarCista is the exception. She does all that and still has time to start her own business EyeKisses, which is an upscale line of 100% Mink or Fox Fur lashes. I had to link up with her and do this interview because I want to know how she did it. She explains it and she also lets women know that they can do it too! She looks like a 15 year old but don’t let her looks fool you, she’s a Boss Lady on the come up!

How did EyeKisses come about?
I have always been a ” Girlie Girl”. I literally can play in make-up all day long. And when I say…

Is Loyalty Owed?

Is Loyalty Owed?

Loyalty means to be loyal to a person, to be faithful to them and to be honest with them, but who deserves loyalty? That bestfriend of 10 years who dated a boy in high school, but still wants him off limits to you? That cousin who will sleep with sleep your childs mother, but says “no fun if the homeboys can’t have none.” Loyalty has been proven to be broken time and time again over the years whether in film, music or reality. That’s why when Chris Brown said “these h–s ain’t loyal,” the world couldn’t help but to agree. Ronald Isley and R.Kelly was some of the first people to display what unloyalty is for the public. They were good friends, but somehow Ron Isley women always found a way into Kelly’s bed. But the question is did Kelly owe Ron something?
There more intense situations when a man/ woman can have their best friend back through thick and thin, they can clothe, feed and shelter this person and yet this same best friend will double cross them in a heartbeat. This brings us back to the question is loyalty owed? Is it earned? Or does it even exist?

Safety First



Whether you live in the south, the east, the midwest or somewhere else in the country, one thing you want to do during the upcoming summer is keep your children safe. The world is violent, especially in urban cities, and as it gets hotter and summer quickly approaches, the violence only increases which often leads to death. For parents who work full time and need their children to be occupied, there are a number of things you can do to keep your child active and out of the streets.

The Boys & Girls Club is located in cities all across world. The club  provides assistance and support to kids in youth program development, resource development, marketing and communications, and more. The facilities offer several different programs. For these programs the age usually varies depending on the program you choose.

In cities such as South Bend, which is known and popular because of Notre Dame, they offer different camps and events for children to do, whether the kids are local or if they’re coming from miles away. So check out local universities, or even community colleges near you and see what they offer.

Big Brothers Big Sister (BBBS) programs are located all across the word and it gives your child that big sibling they’ve always wanted. Personally experiencing the BBBS myself, I was a Big Sister for a couple years and I’d pick my sister up, we’d have picnics, go skating. If your child is involved with this program, they will probably get picked up once or twice a week and go on an outing. They also offer different camp activities.

The YMCA  offers different programs and activities for youth with the hopes of building “human community of justice with love, peace and reconciliation for the fullness of life for all creation.” There’s numerous ways to keep your children off the street and into something productive. Check your city’s website and see what all there is to offer. It isn’t impossible to keep your child safe during the summer, you just have to search, seek and find.

Only Cowards Run


I can’t even begin to count how many friends, peers, neighbors and strangers I’ve seen die due to violence in South Bend. It only seems to get worse as time goes by. The first thing I hear people say or see people type is ‘South Bend is a dead end, South Bend isn’t safe, I have to get me and my kids out of here.” This comes from the same people who talks crazy on Facebook and act tough in public, but one of your friends die and the first thing you want to do is run? What is running going to do for you? Where will it lead you to?  I suggest you help prevent things like this from happening to other innocent people again. Its true it is the police duty to protect us, but they can’t do that with our help.  I know that not all cops are good cops, but you never know until you. Right?  Violence is a public health issue, because it affects not only the victims, but their family & friends and their community as well. It’s already obvious that gun laws won’t decrease violence because there always seem to be away around them, and if a person wants a gun, they’ll get one- whether they steal it or pay an extremely high price for it. So, the question is where to begin? Those who have pull in the city  and is popular can begin it all. They can speak to people, inform them that isn’t route to go. Maybe we can look into a crisis hotline, a number people can call 24/7 when they’re going to something, which may be contemplating murder. Talk to your loved ones, remind them how important life is. There is so much we can do as city to decrease the violence, but we need a place to start, we need a person who wouldn’t mind taking a stand. When it comes to parties and music, everyone is quick to volunteer to make moves, but who can we call on it our time of need? Especially when a lot officers haven’t gained the trust of the public. If no one else will tell you, I will running is for cowards. You can’t run from your past. So stand up and take a chance, you never know, you just may save a life which  will save millions of tears and hundreds of broken hearts.

Happy Birthday Einstein!



Today (March 14) would have been Albert Einstein’s 135th year of life, but as most people know his life ended in 1955 when he was 76. Born in Germany, Einstein was the scientist who created the Theory of Relativity (1905) and the mass-energy equivalence formula. So let’s wish the man who created difficult formulas and equations such as E=mc(2) a happy birthday!

Let’s end on this quote: 

“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage — to move in the opposite direction.”
