I’ve been a fan of Musiq Soulchild for so dayum long that I can even tell you what I was doing when I first heard his hit “Just Friends” from his first album Aijuswanaseing…. but that’s personal so I won’t go there.
I had the pleasure of dining with Musiq (real name Taalib Johnson) yesterday at Maggiano’s in Buckhead as we broke bread together in the private dining area (along with 29 other invited guests).
Musiq discussed the details of his sixth album MusiqintheMagiq and played the video for the album’s single “Anything” feat Swizz Beatz (click HERE if you haven’t seen it.).
Musiq explained the song’s meaning:
“‘Anything’ is really about jealousy and insecurity. In relationships, it’s not wise to automatically assume that whenever you feel suspicious about someone, that something negative is going on.
If a man is saying and showing that he loves you, then give him some credit and have a little faith.”
Ok… great advice!
Musiq and I sat down for a lil one on one time, where he shared details regarding his decision to make Atlanta his home. He also gave more words of wisdom to new artists who travel here in hopes of shining in the “A” aka “Black Hollywood”.

Some guy has actually took the time to write a theme song for the infamous “Fat Ho” Burger joint.
If you recall, Fat Ho Burger opened in Waco, Texas about a week ago amidst controversy over the name.
The young woman who opened the now famously named restaurant, claims that the word “Ho” in the name is merely meant as a lighthearted term and her restaurant welcomes ho’s of all sizes. (I added that last part, but I’m sure it’s true…)
At any rate, if you have some free time check out the Fat Ho Burger Theme below… *sigh* Continue Reading…
I got a chance to talk to Antonia “Toya” Carter yesterday and she shared a bit of info about her new BET reality series, “Toya: Family Affair,” which will focus on Toya’s trials and tribulations with family issues.
We had a great time chatting about everything from the show to the latest gossip. I even had to give Toya an impromptu class on the proper way to display the “A”. I assure you it was Heeee-larry-us!
Toya has been walking in the shadow of her famous ex, Lil Wayne, but that’s about to be a non issue as she’s doing her own thing now.
She’s currently engaged to her boo, Memphitz and has several business ventures including her new boutique “Garb”.

In our one on one interview, Toya says she wants people to move on and let that go… because she definitely has.
“I want people to love and respect me for me and not for who I was associated with. That’s only a part of my life.
Sometimes you get drowned in someone else’s shadow and people only look at you as that person’s “ex” or that person’s “baby mama”, when you were much more.
I was much more than that, I was his ex-wife… Continue Reading…
A Chicago teacher is under investigation and may face a lawsuit after she took a photo of one of her seven-year-old pupils’ hairstyle.
Of course taking the photo wasn’t the issue.
It was the teacher posting the student’s picture to her Facebook page and her making fun of the little girl’s candy laced african-american hairstyle, that made it a problem.
Is this yet another case of Facebook gone wrong or ghetto hairstyles on blast? You be the judge…

Word on the curb is that former NBA baller Allen “Money Bagz” Iverson lost his ride last night on the mean streets of Atlanta.
Iverson was riding around town in his silver 2009 Lamborghini when he was pulled over last night by Atlanta Police for riding with expired dealer tags.
According to TMZ, A.I.’s Lambo is now sitting in an Atlanta impound lot after authorities towed the whip and gave him a ticket.
Iverson didn’t seem to sweat the matter though. He merely cleared all of his belongings out of the Lambo and hopped into a friend’s Rolls-Royce, who so happened to be following behind him.
I’m so sick of all these “ballers” getting caught up in dumb sh*t! *sigh*
