Google Music Storage Locker Details


Over the past few months Google Music has been leaking more and more information about how their new music database will work. Unlike iTunes and others who store music, Google has said that their program will create what is called a Storage (Cloud) Locker which can be accessed from ANYWHERE and not just by logging onto a computer.

This is a very good look for those who want to listen to their music but are not at their computer. You could log, access your cloud locker, and download or stream any music you have uploaded.

However, this feature is not free, so far it's said to start of a cost of $25 per year. More details on this can be found by checking out CNN: Wired website.

Mac: First of all, I want to thank you for giving me the time for this interview. I just felt it was only right to learn more about the person behind the photos.

Nike Air Max Lebron VIII "USA"


I'm far from a Lebron fan, even though he BALLS. Neither have I been a fan of his shoes, other than the Nike Air Max LeBron VII "All-Stars", but the ones I spotted yesterday (pictured above) are NIIIICEEEEE!!!

NiceKicks gave us a preview of these sneakers dropping sometime this fall. It reminds me of the Jordan VIIs for some reason. They are most definitely a DOPE PAIR and I will be copping!

However, it is still all about the LAKESHOW!

Red & White Blackberry Torch
Coming Soon


I found this mosey'n along over at Crackberry recently. Looks pretty nice, I remember back in the day everyone wanted an all black phone because there were not that many out, now it's like everyone wants an all white one. Read more about this phone here.

Trey Songz: Passion, Pain, & Pleasure
Album Review

First, I have to say I went into this album with low expectations. I know he's the hottest r&b act out at the moment, but to me, until he stops talking about SEX ON EVERY SONG, I really can't take his music serious. With that being said, I've listened to the album 2 to 3 songs, all the way through and I must say I'm impressed.

Yes, there are still a whole bunch of sex songs, but they are nice I can't front. I really can't wait to SMASH off this cd. That's what really matters right?

Some of my favorite songs are 'Massage, Alone, Can't Be Friends and a few more I will place below.

Overall, nice! Worth the $9.99. Get it!!

Trey Songz - Red Lipstick


Trey Songz ft. Drake - The Usual


Trey Songz - Unfortunate


You can purchase Trey Songz: Passion, Pain, & Pleasure on iTunes.

DJ Finesse IPhone App


I have to admit, THIS is THE ONLY TIME I've been jealous of iPhone users. Yes, you all win this one. Why, because of the DJ FINESSE iPhone App! For those of you who have never heard REAL DOWN SOUTH MUSIC, this is for you!!
This is a major look I must admit. Once it comes available for Blackberry, you can believe it's copped! Until then, iPhone users, download this app from the iTunes store and you can thank me later.
Also, if on twitter, you can follow DJ Finesse for all sorts of entertainment. Trust me!

DJ O Sharp's
mIDnIgHt maYHEM Vol. 1


A few days ago the Usual Suspects sent me a mix by DJ O Sharp and after sitting in my favorites for a day or two, I got the chance to listen to it and I must say, it's FIYA!! I mean, you probably wouldn't expect anything else if it's on this site, right? I knew you wouldn't take my word for it though, so I went through the trouble of uploading this mix JUST SO YOU COULD LISTEN TO IT from this site. After the first few minutes, you'll want to download the entire mix. Thank me later. Check out the mix below. Major look for Columbus might I add.

Freddie Mac x Marsha Ambrosius - Cheats On You [Video]

Without further adieu.. enjoy.

"Can We Talk About Marriage?"


Yesterday before the football games kicked off, I popped the question, "Can we talk about marriage?" Didn't think I'd receive THIS much feedback but I had a lot of people chime in and give their opinions and we had a REALLY NICE CONVERSATION before the 1:00 pm KICKOFFS. I may try this again next week.

This question came up because I had been conversing with a few friends who were talking about marriage and the importance of it. Also a time frame in which that "marriage" conversation should come up if you are in a relationship.

So I took to twitter and these are some of the responses I received:

I would like to thank all who gave their opinions and shedding some light on the topic at hand. If you have anything to add, please feel free to leave a comment!

Flocka ft. Wale & Roscoe: No Hands [Video]


When I heard this song on Wale's More About Nothing Mixtape it was kinda catchy. It's one of those songs that wears off after the first 30 seconds but best believe it comes on in the club, I'm getting it in! Nice video, I guess.

Freddie Mac x Marsha Ambrosius:
Cheats on You

You know I couldn't let Marsha get away with that 'I Hope She Cheats' record, right? It was only right that I revamped this, for the BETTER OF COURSE. After hearing this song a few times over the weekend on the radio, and ROCKING to it, I had to do it for the guys who felt the same. Take a listen below and REPLACE THE ORIGINAL on your ipod.



I gave twitter a sneak peak Thursday morning around 2:00 am [shouts out to the insomniacs] and here are a few things they had to say about the record.

Reggie, Reggie, Reggie

Over the last few weeks, Reggie Bush has been under fire about the Heisman Trophy award and whether he'll be able to keep it or not. I find it sad that they would even be THINKING of taking this trophy back, something they've NEVER done in it's entire history. Whether Reggie Bush took money or not, his performance was what won him the Heisman a few years ago. He was the most explosive, dominating, aggressive running back to watch that ENTIRE SEASON. He deserves it.

Does SEX really matter?

Ok, numerous people have told me before, SEX doesn't play ANY type of role in their relationship. It's all about caring, loving, trusting the person you're with. If the birds are chirping and dogs are barking when you and your lover walks Lover's Lane, then everything is right with the world. My thoughts; you've gotta be f#@king KIDDING ME!!

Let's start off by saying that I am in NO WAY, one of these sexual maniacs who puts sex above breathing. Sex is what it is, it's SEX. On another note, I do think that sex plays a major part in a relationship. You may think different, and that's totally cool. That's you, but what about your partner?

If the sex is terrible, what happens then? Are pointers given out? Do you move on? Do you go the drastic route and get it from someone else? I would most certainly hope not, but there are are some who have AND has used that as an excuse!!

How much of a role does SEX play in your relationship? Can you stick around if the sex is horrible? If your guy or girl has NO CLUE of what's going on in the bedroom, what is your next move? Does SEX REALLY MATTER?

I've given you my take, let me know what you think on the issue.

With that being said, it you have any questions you like to ask them about me, living in Mississippi, or being the parents of a FAMOUS RAPPER, please let me know and I will ask them during the segment.

Meet Ciroc Clark


I came across Ciroc like I usually do with everyone else, randomly searching Twitter. We all know twitter is full of a couple things; models,bloggers, rappers, promoters, and djs. When I saw that she was an artist, I decided to give her a listen, like I do with most artists. After visiting her page, I was impressed with a few tracks. Not what I expected, mostly because I'm use to female artists rapping about how bad they are and niggas aint shit, she came across much different, in a good way might I add.

After listening to a couple more, I was sold that she was very talented and had a few skills on the mic. I could tell she took time and put a lot of effort into her recordings, some people can't notice that off the top, but I did. I think she's really going to be a fresh ear in hip hop. To read more about her, check out her Reverbnation page. As for the music, skim through the tracks below.

You can also follow her on TWITTER.
