I caught up with R&B singer Faith Evans on the red carpet of the 2010 Soul Train Awards last week. [PHOTO GALLERY] Faith looked marvelous that night and was such a joy to speak with.
You may have heard by now that Faith has been tapped to play the lead role in an upcoming biopic by Spirit of Life Films entitled, ”BLONDIE” – THE FLORENCE BALLARD STORY.
Evans will embody the spirit of the Supremes’ original lead singer, Florence Ballard.
A Detroit native, Florence Ballard paved the way for female entertainers but she has yet to be accurately portrayed so Faith, who’s never acted, has a heavy burden on her shoulders!
Check out video of my red carpet one on one with Faith Evans below: Continue Reading…

B.o.B.’s new video for “Don’t let me Fall” features the talented musician in several positions.
B.o.B. is shown upside down, right side up, and everything in between as he plays his guitar and sings the hook “They say what comes up must come down but don’t let me fall…”
There’s even a cameo from his mentor, rapper T.I. [Sidebar: I swear it seems like it was just yesterday that Tip proudly introduced B.o.B. to us in that private “boardroom” meeting and now he’s a certified Supa-Stah! My how time flies.]

I guess there will be no SNOW this winter. Not from Jeezy anyway…
Reports are coming down the pipe that Young Jeezy’s release date for his highly anticipated Thug Motivation: 103 (TM103) has moved from December 14 to Nev-uary 1st… i.e. NEVER! This is the third change since the first due date (September 28th).
Word is… Jeezy’s singles “All White Everything” [official video] and the Plies-assisted “Lose My Mind” have failed to make noise on the radio airwaves, iTunes, or in even in the clubs.
Def Jam hasn’t said much but rumor has it that Jeezy’s response to former correctional officer-turned-Rapper Rick Ross’ hit “BMF” may have been a factor in the executive decision.

Young Jeezy, who has a known affiliation with the notorious drug trafficking organization, boasted about his connections on the street remix. Jeezy squeaked past a federal investigation back in 2008, so it would seem that rapping about it wasn’t a very smart thing to do.
Oh well… I guess we have still a few Jeezy tracks on the streets to hold us down in the meantime.

I had no idea Tameka Foster Glover Raymond was receiving awards around town! Seriously… I didn’t.
Tameka Raymond was recently honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Art Institute of Atlanta’s Passion for Fashion Scholarship Event for her contributions to the fashion and entrepreneur industries.
Many people do not know that Tameka attended Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising and went on to work in buying offices and before she started styling for celebrities.
Tameka is now a proud owner and buyer for her two boutiques, Estella and Estella Home, located in Roswell, Georgia in addition to running her foundation Lost Ones and being a mother to her five boys.
The photographs below are of Tameka, a designer and a student at AiA and with her son Ryan.
