MUSIC: “Prolly”– Don Trip ft. Yo Gotti

31 Oct

Mr. Trip is dropping a tape tomorrow titled “Help Is On The Way.”  But before he does that, he gives us a remix to what I think will be one of the best singles off the tape “Prolly” and enlists Gotti to help out.  Nice hood banger. Listen and download below.

MUSIC: “The Jig Is Up (Dump’N)”– Kendrick lamar Prod. By Jermaine Cole & Canai Finch

31 Oct

 

Let’s first give K. Dot a round of applause (clap clap) for selling 240,000 copies  in his first week.  Pretty good numbers considering his album leaked.  Kendrick and Cole match up again for another banger.  Kendrick also finally shoots back at Shyne rapping

I pray to God this beat is good enough for Shyne, if not J. Cole your shit is traaaaash…
But at least my opinion just made everybody laugh.”

Ha! & P.S Cole is a dope producer, right?

MUSIC: Stankonia Sessions: A3C Edition Project Produced by SKMA & The Flush.

24 Oct

I missed A3C this year. Again.  & i’m still pretty sour about it so i’ll just move on….

 

 

So a few of the artists that participated in A3C got together at  legendary Stankonia Studios to record  somewhat of a compilation project.  Super dope idea.  The first drop that we have from that project comes from HURZ, Los and Skyzoo titled “The Sparks”.  i’m pretty excited about the project… you know, since i missed A3C & all.

Watch the trailer about the project and listen to the track below.

 

 

MUSIC: Emily King “The Seven EP”

24 Oct

 

 

hear me when i say, this is one of the best EP’s i’ve heard from a somewhat underground artist since hearing KING’S “The Story” EP. it’s amazing. from start to finish.

Emily King is a Grammy-nominated American singer and songwriter. She started her career in 2004 and her debut album East Side Story was released three years later in August 2007.  I just recently stumbled across her latest EP while scrolling through my instagram dashboard.  & just like KING”S ep, I listened to it for hours on end.

It’s sweet, kinda funky and definitely catchy.  I catch myself singing her songs all throughout the day.

Her EP “The Seven EP” is completely free and is something that I promise you will love.  catch the video below of Emily singing one of my favorites from the EP, “Every Part.”

let me know how you like it!

MUSIC BREAK: Mila & Fire College Ambassador Program

22 Oct

annnd they picked ME! 🙂

This morning, I found out that I’ve been selected to represent Mila and Fire at my university, UNCC.  I’m extremely excited! This is something that i wanted pretty badly so to find out that I got it completely made my Monday. As of now, I am one of five ambassadors that will be spreading the word about Mila and Fire around various college campuses.

before you ask, “What’s Mila and Fire,” allow me to introduce them! Mila and Fire are based out of DC and feature inexpensive, sexy, one of a kind clothing for all us fly girls. Read a little more about them below.

Mila & Fire are long-time best friends who have always had an eclectic sense of fashion and an eye for things that are different. Going out and hunting for unique finds and finding amazing pieces, gives them a high no drug could induce.

Mila & Fire have always been viewed as fashion-forward individuals, and found themselves always being asked to be a personal shopper, or to go out and find unique one-of-a-kind pieces for their friends. After graduating from college, Mila & Fire decided that sharing their passion with their peers would not only be fulfilling, but would be something that allows them to connect with other fashionistas.

“We only buy things we would wear. Mila & Fire gives us an opportunity to connect with other fashionistas with similar ideologies on style. We understand that everyone is on a budget. Why can’t you be fly, sexy, and have amazing clothes without spending your last dime?” M & F

 

I applied for this program about a month back because one of the many avenues that i plan on pursuing after graduation is clothing. Sometimes you just have to put yourself out there.

So in the upcoming months, i’ll have lots of new goodies to share with y’all! i’ll be posting my outfits, where i search for my clothes and keeping you up to date with all that is Mila and Fire. As i said before, i’m super excited and grateful for this opportunity. Visit Mila and Fire to get more information on their brand and lots of other funkyness.

& I just have to say, I was just thinking last night on how i wanted to integrate more of my personal style into FTL and this morning i receive an email telling me that I had been selected as an ambassador of one of my favorite boutiques. God is REAL, y’all!
