As the man in the red pinstripped suit and white tee tells you at the beginning of this classic video, “Atlanta is the capital of the DANCE…We started this here and we’re gonna finish it here.” We may get clowned by all you northerners who just don’t get it, but ATLiens have been making up dances way before SouljaBoyTellem was born.
I catch a ton of flack for riding hard with Mr. Collipark’s mini me. But regardless of what y’all think or say, SouljaBoy is one talented individual and a muthaf*ckin MARKETING GENIUS! Hate on haters… but I digress.
Crunk, Yeekin,’ Bankhead bouncin, Two-Steppin, Birdwalking….we’ve had it all. I know y’all can recall the old days of sweating it up on Bankhead Highway (one block away from where T.I. posted Club Crucial) at ‘The Silver Fox” or over on Gresham at Sharon’s Showcase, or waaaaay back when you’d hit up Greenbriar Skating Rink. Well, the clip above will probably refresh your memory. It showcases Atlanta’s wide array of dances in a classic dance off competition. Our music & beats were meant to move to. It’s addictive so there’s no use in fighting it. Y’all northerners can try to catch up but it’s useless…we’re already two-steppin ahead of ya!
Video below: (*Sidenote*: Special “A” Town Crunk award goes to Rashan Ali for showing em how it’s done down here! Whe shestarted “yeeking” at about 1:45 I almost fell outta my chair!)
Former Atlanta Falcon’s quarterback Michael Vick returned to his Virginia Home this morning after being released from federal prison. He will serve the remainder of his sentence on home confinement and may try to resume his professional football career.

Four cars pulled up to Vick’s five-bedroom brick home at the end of a cul-de-sac at about 8:25 a.m Thursday. The caravan was led by a black Kia Sedona with curtains shielding the back seat from view and sunshields on the front side windows. Vick was in the Sedona along with his fiancee, Kijafa Frink, said Chris Garrett, a member of Vick’s support and legal team.
He was also greeted by his 19 month old daughter (London) who was born just weeks prior to the start of his sentence.
Mike was fitted with an electronic monitoring device, which he’ll wear for the two months he spends under home confinement. He and law officials walked outside on his back deck briefly to make sure the device was working properly. Mike will spend the next two months being monitored at home but has been permitted to work outside the home as a construction laborer wtih WM Jordon Construction in Virginia. He will be a $10 hourly employee for at least the next two months. The job is part of his probation, but of course his ultimate goal is to return to the NFL. Hopefully he’ll be given the opportunity, since he has paid for his crime. (Source 1 and 2)
Ahaaa…Fooled ya didn’t I?? I know y’all thought this would be another Jeezy post, but er um… I have a big heart so I spread it around! I was watching the NWA documentary the other night and realized how much I really loved me some O’shea Jackson. Then I saw these photos of he and his family at the “Dance Flick” premiere in L.A. and was like for real…Ice Cube is the truth! Apparently “sexy” runs in the family! Check out his sons:
Yeah…I almost forgot Mrs. Jackson was there too! She’s responsible for the eye candy as well as Ice Cube’s transformation from doughboy to $dough$boy…good lookin out!
Beyonce’s hot new video for “Ego” premiered on her website earlier today and as usual…that bish is doin’ it! This is my favorite song from I Am… Sasha Fierce and we all know who she’s sanging too. *sigh* Isn’t love great!! Enjoy!
“Boyonce”…the devious mind behind the f*ck Keri Hilson videos is back with more divalicious drama. This time he/she has set out to reveal tips on DL men and those who don’t know yet that they are G.A.Y. I know one of my best friends is gonna squeal with disgust once he sees this. He can’t stand gay males who act “extra” and feel that they portray the group in a bad light. I…personally, just like to laugh at ANYONE who would rock a bone straight perm with a goatee. But that’s just me…
