Nelly visited Atlanta’s Lenox Square Mall last weekend to promote his new Apple Bottoms Fragrance. During his visit, I was invited out to get spend a lil one on one time with the MO rapper who actually visits the “A” quite frequently.

Steph Jones is not only one of THE most cutest polka dotted men I’ve encountered thus far, he’s also the one of the most talented. Step was in Atlanta last weekend recording a few holiday songs and decided to set up a listening session for his “Gravity” mixtape. Invited media and industry tastemakers all traveled to Patchwerk Studios to experience “Gravity” which Step refers to as a LIFETAPE instead of a mixtape. He may be onto something cause the first single, “You’re So Delicious” is a refreshing, feel good song that might possibly breathe some life back into this blah music industry. Take a minute to check it out:
Welcome to my heart, soul and thoughts thru melody and if you’re sleeping then stay sleep because i have this extra loud alarm clock that will wake you right on up. This is that real good feel good music! ~ Steph Jones

The party was billed as a birthday celebration for both Lil Rocko and Romelo but Monica let me in on a lil secret. It wasn’t actually either of the boy’s birthdays but Lil Rock wanted a day they both could share, so being the great Mom that she is…Mo gave her babies what they wanted.
