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…
After documents surfaced recently that Cedric “Alfamega” Zellars had once been a paid informant, T.I. wasted no time in hitting the airwaves of Atlanta radio station 107.9 to release the following statement…“You’re FIRED!” Just kidding. Here’s what he really had to say:
I am stunned and totally surprised by the news about Alfa “Ced” Zellers. Even though all of our artists and employees are asked by us to be honest and open about their past history, at no time did Alfa disclose to me or Grand Hustle what has now appeared in the media. He essentially deceived us by failing to fully disclose the truth about his past, and there is no place in our organization for dishonest and misleading behavior.
As I’ve always said, you must take responsibility for your own actions. We at Grand Hustle can not support or condone blaming others for our own mistakes. I hope and pray that God blesses Cedric’s plans, but i don’t foresee me or my company playing a role in his personal or professional business.
Alfa is said to be incapacitated at an Atlanta area hospital and is severely injured from unknown reasons. I have so many questions right now. Who leaked those old “A”zz documents? Why now? Why is Alfa in the hospital? What does any of this have to do with him making music? We may never know the full story but it’s interesting nonetheless…
Sheree´Whitfield from Real Housewives of Atlanta and her gay hubby Lawrence were spotted at Opera last night. *sigh* Just looking at Lawrence’s limp wrist makes my carpel tunnel act up…and those shoes?? Boy I know you coulda done better than that! Where’s Derek J…he could give you a few pointers on shoe selection.
I heard that there was a bit of drama in the club between Kandi and NeNe but since everyone signed a waiver, no one’s talking about it. Dayum! I knew I shoulda went by Opera with everyone else after the Girl’s Club social, but I chose lame “A”zz Luckie’s. My bad…
A few more photos of my 2nd favorite housewife without a husband below:
Y’all can talk bad about Sheree’ all you want, but that b*sh is Doin’ It!
[Sidebar: I heard Sheree´has finally given up possession of the mansion featured on the show for more *cough* “sensible” diggs. Word is…she’s now a proud apartment dweller. Can’t wait to see that on the show!]
You may recall the post I did about being inducted into the The Girl’s Club last year, well I finally attended my first social last night, hosted by two of the founding members, D. Woods and Mika Means. The 3rd founder, Shanell, was out of town and unable to attend last night. Carlysia Levert (singer/songwriter/Gerald Levert’s daughter), NecoleBitchie (NecoleBitchie.com), Princess (Crime Mob), Brian (Concrete Loop), Bola (Grand Hustle), Ebony Love (singer/songwriter) and more all came through to show love to the MOVEMENT at 404 Lounge last night. The only requirement was that NO HATERS were allowed…
Check out a few photos below:

Necole tried to front on Twitter…but I got her back with this pic!
