The mothers of a three musical superstars have banned together to create their own show. “Dinner Table Discussions” will feature three women who gave birth to hip-hop/r&b icons, as they create a real “down to earth” atmosphere (ala ‘The View”) where they ‘ll discuss current events, important topics and interview guests.

In case you haven’t heard, the anticipated release date for Usher‘s Raymond v. Raymond project has been pushed back to early 2010 but that hasn’t stopped a few leaked tracks to hit the net. This time, Ursh has teamed up with T.I. for “In My Bag” a Scott Storch produced track where they both brag about their pimpin and globe-trotting VIP Status.

Two very talented chicks teamed up for a video spoof of The Baby Mama’s Club The Tiny & Toya show. I really appreciate y’all sending me this cause it really made my day. The girls are spot on in their speech as they attempt to “tawk” like our two favorite reality show castmates, Tameka ‘Tiny” Cottle and Antonia ‘Toya” Carter.
When we first saw the ads for BET”s” Tiny and Toya” we thought what you probably thought : “What kind of hot ghetto mess is this going to be”? It turns out that the show cast the women in a positive light. They come off as genuinely sweet and and trying to be the best and do the best for themselves and their families. That being said-there were some things we couldn’t help poking fun at. We hope you enjoy and hope they have a sense of humor!
Steph Jones is not only one of THE most cutest polka dotted men I’ve encountered thus far, he’s also the one of the most talented. Step was in Atlanta last weekend recording a few holiday songs and decided to set up a listening session for his “Gravity” mixtape. Invited media and industry tastemakers all traveled to Patchwerk Studios to experience “Gravity” which Step refers to as a LIFETAPE instead of a mixtape. He may be onto something cause the first single, “You’re So Delicious” is a refreshing, feel good song that might possibly breathe some life back into this blah music industry. Take a minute to check it out:
Welcome to my heart, soul and thoughts thru melody and if you’re sleeping then stay sleep because i have this extra loud alarm clock that will wake you right on up. This is that real good feel good music! ~ Steph Jones
