Q Da Kid recently completed the video for a song called “A Letter to Shakir” and dedicates it to all who have passed and to those who mourn them. I’ve been wondering what’s been up with him, but JD explains via his blog:
EVERYBODY BEEN ASKING WHERE Q IS HE’S BEEN WORKIN…

Thanks for this Q. It’s a beautiful song and video…
Jermaine Dupri held his Grammy afterparty at Hyde in LA last night. Queen Latifah & her brother (above), Big Boi, Dallas Austin, Jay-Z and more all came out to party as JD held it down on the ones & twos:
Heeeyyyy Twan! I see you boo
Dallas was rasing the roof… woop woop!
No comment on the lack of women of color in the building! Just kidding JD! Of course there were tons of parties to choose from last night. Check out a few flix from more Grammy celebrations below:
Rapper/Producer/Entrepreneur Lil Jon was spotted partying it up at the Universal/Motown party.
Keyshia Cole arrives to the GlobalGrind.com launch party.
Jermaine Dupri, Usher, Johntae Austin & Bryan-Michael Cox, and Tyrone (JD’s assistant) dubbed themselves ‘Ocean 5′ as they took over Vegas. JD documented their fun times on his Global14 site as they partied the nights away. Folks began to comment that the group were only spotted chillin with white girls and Ty aka “InTYnational” issued the following response:
This is a response to the comment made that the Ocean’s 5 don’t party with women of color. What ya’ll need to know is that we go wherever the party is… Whoever decides to come out is beyond our control, life is a menu and this what the nite ordered up at the time. The women of color need to get out of the crib and come party with us. Don’t worry about sweating out your hair. Don’t worry about having to get up in the morning. JUST COME OUT TO HAVE A GOOD TIME AND PARTY!!!! Get some alcohol in your system and go crazy! PARTYING IS NOT SITTING AROUND LOOKING AT EVERYONE ELSE PARTYING…THAT SHIT IS DEPRESSING, YOU MIGHT AS WELL STAY IN THE HOUSE. And for the record the Ocean’s 5 love ALL women! ESPECIALLY WOMEN OF COLOR!
Moving on…check out JD’s recent video escapades with the ‘Ocean’s 5′ below:
I’m personally hoping the March 24th release date for her upcoming CD, A Perfect World is written in stone cause I’ve been anticipating this one. Keri really making the rounds now that judgement day is coming soon. She also performed “Turnin Me On” live the other day during a hosting gig on BET’s 106 & Park. Check out that video below courtesy of NecoleBitchie:
Monica’s still working on her comeback album and taped a message for all of her fans while working in the studio with Jermaine Dupri and Bryan-Michael Cox. They’re working on a new song called “Never Give Up” and Mo wants everyone to know that she’s not dropping any fly by night hits. This is REAL MUSIC she’s working on and they’re making sure it’s right. So be patient dammit!!! BTW…I see you Mo shouting out the “A”…Love you boo!
