Bell Biv Devoe Returns With Three Stripes

Never trust a big butt and a smile. Ronnie, Ricky and Mike (a.k.a. Bell Biv Devoe) took the world by storm in the early 90s with hits like their smash single “Poison”. However, the group was birthed from New Edition’s massive success. Bobby Brown, Johnny Gill, Ralph Tresvant, Ronnie DeVoe, Ricky Bell and Michael Bivins […]

The ‘Sting’ Is Coming In 7 Days

I have always loved poetry for as long as I can remember. The emotion, the voice inflections through spoken word, the word play. All of it is so intriguing to me, especially when you hear or see different poets in action. However, people have to live poetry in order to write about it. My new book, […]

Keyshia Cole Preps Epic Comeback

My feelings towards Keyshia Cole have been quite indifferent lately. I thought she struck gold with her first two or three albums. Everything after that has been hit or miss for me, with the exception of a few singles. Her last album, Point of No Return, has gotten two full spins to date on my […]

3 Things You Should Continue After Your Daniel Fast

Last year was my first time doing the Daniel Fast. My wife and I did it with our church and it was brutal for me. The 21 day plan basically excludes all meat, dairy/eggs, sugar (even honey and agave) an caffeine. Eeesh!! I know. Vegetables, fruit, legumes, beans and potatoes are all fair game though. […]

Ed Sheeran Gets Ready For The Great Divide

Ed Sheeran took Pop music by storm in 2015. His last album, x, was a huge crossover success. He obviously didn’t believe in taking much of a break. He released two new songs, “Castle on the Hill” and “Shape of You”, earlier this month. The singles are the predecessors to his upcoming third studio album, […]

Opinions Change Like Underwear

Many of you have heard the old saying, “opinions are like ________ and everybody’s got one”. I’ll let you guess what the blank symbolizes if you don’t know. I talked with a friend recently about a new milestone she’s about to accomplish. Her excitement was obvious, but there was also an uneasiness in her tone. […]

LeToya Luckett Snaps Back 2 Reality

2017 marks the 20 year anniversary of the start of Destiny’s Child. They are one of the biggest girl groups in history, selling millions of records worldwide. Although Michelle Williams made more of the chart topping hits with the group, I still liked the idea of the original lineup more. LeToya Luckett has been the more […]

It Takes 21 Days To….

  We have all heard the saying, “It takes 21 days to break a bad habit”. I am actually doing a 21 day fast right now. So, believe that there are some bad habits being broken. However, 21 days means something different today. The official release date is February 4th (my birthday). I am extremely excited about […]

Kelly Price: Say It Ain’t So

I’m going to make this as quick and painless as possible. Let’s start with Chris Brown and Soulja Boy. You have likely heard murmurings of the two artists’ social media feud. How did it start? The drama began when Soulja Boy liked a picture of Chris Brown’s ex, Karrueche Tran. Chris Brown got upset, words […]

Elle Varner: A Long Overdue 4 Letter Word

Elle Varner has left fans pining for a refill since her solid Perfectly Imperfect debut album dropped in 2012. That was four years ago. She has released some hot like fire singles in the interim. However, the absence of a new Elle Varner album has left some supporters with some four letter words. Oh, yes that […]
