Check out Soulja Boy’s new video for “Work”. The strange thing about it is…not one dayum soul in it is actually doing ANYTHING besides standing in a ‘pahtment parking lot bouncin to the beat. Hmmmm….I guess that could be considered working if they got paid huh? *sigh* I’m so jealous….
Chris Brown says he’s “very sad and very ashamed” of his actions regarding Rihanna and has made a video apologizing to her and to all of his fans. He states in the video that he’s seeking help, will do anything in his power to prevent it from happening again and is leaning on his family and counselors for spiritual guidance.
The apology seems sincere to me…and if Rihanna can forgive him why can’t we? Video below:
I spotted this video a while ago but totally forgot to post it but I’m sure you Dungeon Family fans will appreciate this video footage captured during their Vibe cover shoot in Piedmont Park last month. I’m prone to believe the consensus that a Dungeon Family reunion is the only thing that could save this town.
The Dungeon Family. The first shall be last and the last shall be first. Anybody who has been here since the mid-90s can tell you that even moreso than Dallas and Jermaine and only second to LaFace, the DF made Atlanta cool, so only they can reinstitute the groove and save the city. If that fails, expect me to speak to you from New York or Los Angeles in 2010. ~ via TheUnderwriter’s “Why Atlanta is Dying Off”
There’s way too much infiltration going on and we need to bring it back full circle. Back to OUR sound….go straight NATIVE on they “A”zz. *sigh* In the meantime, we’ll all just burn out our “A”pods listening to classics like Outkast’s Southernplaylisticadillacmuzik, Goodie Mob’s Soul Food and Witchdoctor’s A S.W.A.T. Spiritual Healing.
Check out this new previously unreleased song from Keri Hilson produced by super producer Timbaland called “The Ring”. I’m still trying to figure out if I like it or not. The beat is OK…but I was expected so much more on the vocals. I dunno. I love Ms. KeriBaby but this song’s got me feeling some kinda way right now…
In partnership with Upscale magazine, super producer Polow Da Don along with his label, Zone 4, Inc, launched the F.O.C.U.S. foundation last week. F.O.C.U.S = Focusing On Completion Until Successful and concentrates on promoting a desire for education, interpersonal skills, networking and marketability within the community.
Polow was said to be out of the country but in his absence, R&B diva Monica held down the “Night of Stars” event, which took place at Club Opera. Most (including me) were totally unaware that Mo was also grabbing footage for her new BET reality show ‘Still Standing’ so I’ll definitely be on the lookout for my cameo.

Guests were treated to a fashion show which featured select styles from local boutiques, such as Jason Geter’s Striver’s Row and T.I.s AKOO label. There were also treats available in the form of liquor cakes created by “Get Cake” founder Renee Rosenthal and DJ Don Cannon kept the crowd hyped.

In addition to the red carpet fashion show, Zone 4’s newest addition, The Hemphill Kids also performed a tribute to Michael Jackson. Check out the video and more photos from the event below:
