Notorious B.I.G.


It is a legend’s birthday today everyone. I know by now you all have seen multiple posts on social media about Biggie Smalls and Bad Boy Records. As we all know P. Diddy is currently doing the Bad Boy Tour reunion and the day that he performs in New York just so happens to be the same day as Biggie’s birthday! Can we say perfect timing?

Biggie was literally the anchor for Bad Boy Records and it’s only right for the reunion to tour in New York and for a performance to be done on the legend’s birthday. Have any of you all seen the movie done for Biggie explaining his life, called: Notorious BIG? If not, I strongly recommend it. It is an awesome film and it just confirms once again, how talented artist live through their music and connect with people. Legends are Legends and there is nothing else that compares.


Even though Biggie’s life was cut way too soon, we are thankful for the stories that he was able to share of his struggle while living, through his music. Being at that level of fame can be more than a lot to balance but it’s more than evident that it can be done and mastered with the right team of people and energy surrounding you.

May God bless Biggie’s family and allow us to continuously honor his legacy!

“She looked at a few places and her manager Jay Brown has taken over the search. The plan is that when her tour is over in November, she’ll move here.”

This week it was revealed that Rihanna has moved out of her Pacific Palisades mansion plagued by trespassers, stalkers and attempted burglaries.

Miley + Kanye = “Black Skinhead” Remix?

Kanye-West-Miley-CyrusMiley Cyrus is the talk of the nation, and it appears that her VMA antics may have landed her the opportunity of a lifetime.

The New York Post reports that Miley will be featured on the remix of “Black Skinhead.”

According the New York Post’s Page Six, 

“Cyrus skipped her own VMA after-party at No. 8 and went into the studio for what her reps described as a late-night, “top- secret” collaboration, which sources said was with none other than West. The “Yeezus” rapper was one of the few artists not spotted out at Jay Z and Diddy’s bash in New York, which went into the early hours of Monday.”

“Black Skinhead (Remix)” is rumored to appear on a Yeezus remix EP that Kanye plans to release later on this year.
