This song was sent to me over on my Twitter a few weeks ago and had been way too busy to listen to it. I finally got around to it and actually liked the song. Now…I’m no music critic by any means, and have never professed to be, but people are always tryna get me to listen to their music. *sigh* I fell for it this time only because I thought the song was about me. Yes. I’m so vain. LOL.
I’m probably a bit biased because of the title of Yung CEO’s “ATLien” but feel free to comment and let him know if he rep’d his city well in the song.
Y’all got y’all’s free chicken yet? Did you wait in line at your local KFC with your pre-printed coupons to take advatage of Oprah’s gift? I, personally, didn’t buy into the nonesense. It’s not that I don’t like chicken…but saving $4.00 is not worth me waiting hours. I value my time. Shoot! I’m with ole boy in the video….I’ll just head over to popeye’s where there ain’t no line!
I haven’t heard any ATL horror stories, but I did see where those crazy New Yorkers acted up….again! Click Here to read about the recent ‘chicken riots’ sparked by Oprah’s free chicken give-away. It’s really no surprise, I expected worse. Hell…we act crazy even when the chicken ain’t free! SMH…drop the price $1 and see what happens.
Yet again, I’ve creeped over to my friend’s site and snatched up one of her good O.S.A.Ms (Old School Atlanta Memories). This week it’s the Youngbloodz. Remember them? You never really miss something until it’s gone and I realize I really miss these two together. The duo behind today’s “A” Pod classic jams “Damn” and “U-Way” have gone their separate ways, but are still quite active in the industry. And in honor of Flashback Friday, take a moment to reflect with my friend as she shares what she learned while working on the set with Youngbloodz and the attic crew:
It may not be headlines like when Jay Z split with Irv or Snoop with Dre but one of my favorite groups in Atlanta has always been the Youngbloodz and to know that they are not a duo anymore puts me in a melancholy state of mind. Now the fan in me is MAD AS HELL, I love their swag as a rap group, I knew they were having their difficulties but damn if Dre and Big Boi can do it then why not the Youngbloodz. The picture taken above was from one of their last videos Chop Chop, I was the assistant director and it was a long cold day but somehow, I just didn’t mind because I love these guys.
Finally one day I decieded to stop being selfish for one minute and was able to realize the SECRET TO THIS ENTRY, ITS VERY SIMPLE – FOR EVERYTHING THERE IS A SEASON.
Now I’m gonna take you back to a night I can recall at Club 112 a few years back; it was an album release party for Ludacris, and all of Atlanta’s royalty came out to support. The VIP was an Atlien who’s who list. I was sitting down near Michael Vick and my friends were asking me if was I going to follow them back to his house.
Just because it’s flashback Friday…and just because I still rock this CD on the regular, I’ve chosen T.I.’s “Motivation” today. There’s so much I could say about this video, one thing being this song is my all time favorite and numero uno on my ‘workout playlist’ and another being Tip always expected to be infiltrated by the feds. I’m just sayin…
