Drake Has Released The Video for “HotLine Bling” (I Dig It)


On the night of October 19th, 2015 Drake released the visual for the #2 song in the country “HotLine Bling”. Aside from the amazing women and the slight caribbean dancing at the end the video is something serious. Wasn’t too much going on like I thought there was going to be. All he had was some colorful lighting and a pretty much a box he was in and called it a video. Overall I give the video 9.5 distracting Drake hand motions out of 10. Now…I do enjoy Drake’s music but to me he is another Kanye when it comes to dancing like they try to dance and they feel the music but it doesn’t show just the way it should. I digress he can do that he has the money and the power I am just a little o’l blogger trying to get his 4-year degree. Here is the video (Click on the GIF):

Now, for my sneaker heads who are wondering where you can cop those Nike ACG Manoa Drizzy Drake had on they can be found on Foot Locker’s website. In my oh so cool technical savy way I have attached the link to the picture and it will take you right to the page to purchase them. I just might cop a pair these are in my budget.

The VMA Mess Has Sunk In (For Me) #ClapBackSeason


Now I know it has been a few days since the Video Music Awards but I still have to give my opinion. I am a college kid so I stay busy….BUT HERE I GO!!!

First let me start with Miley Cyrus who was the host. I mean no harm and I do not mean to offend anyone or her but….I DID NOT ENJOY HER AS A HOST!!! Now as a person miley-cyrus-vmas-inline[1]she is great and her music I do enjoy but as a host not so much. I mean let’s be serious we know Miley as a Disney star gone wrong in almost a positive way as if she branded herself into a new person even though we know where she started…Hannah Montana. Now her performance to me was kind of expected. I knew it was going to be something outrageous so that was nothing new to me. But overall she is cool but as a host she….IS NOT!!!

Kanye West is running for president in 2020. Along with him announcing that he also pretty much bashed MTV for flawing his image with the whole him getting on stage and stealing Taylor Swift’s shine. Now him running for president sounds pretty cool to watch if he really does because…What political party will he be tied to?kanye-prez[1]

Rapper Nicki Minaj and singer Taylor Swift made up after their little Twitter beef or whatever you want to call it going on as they performed together. Which was fun to watch nothing special there.

Now time for the biggest thing that happen….NICKI MINAJ WHEN SHE FLAMED MILEY CYRUS FOR RUNNING THAT MOUTH!!! I laughed for one whole hour and kept replaying it because Miley did not know how to reply back to Nicki. Now if you did not know what Miley said before the VMA’s she said to a New York Times reporter:

“People forget that the choices that they make and how they treat people in life affect you in a really big way. If you do things with an open heart and you come at things with love, you would be heard and I would respect your statement. But I don’t respect your statement because of the anger that came with it. […] If you want to make it about race, there’s a way you could do that. But don’t make it just about yourself. Say: ‘This is the reason why I think it’s important to be nominated. There’s girls everywhere with this body type.I know you can make it seem like, ‘Oh I just don’t understand because I’m a white pop star. I know the statistics. I know what’s going on in the world… But to be honest, I don’t think MTV did that on purpose. What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. It’s not very polite. I think there’s a way you speak to people with openness and love. You don’t have to start this pop star against pop star war. It became Nicki Minaj and Taylor in a fight, so now the story isn’t even on what you wanted it to be about.”

So of course with that Nicki Minaj felt the need to address it on the VMA’s with her acceptance for winning best hip-hop for “Anaconda.” Everyone was thanked including her pastor and then she said:

“And now back to this b— that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press,” Minaj snapped. “Miley, what’s good?!”

After those words parted her lips #ClapBackSeason began. Miley replied back by saying:

“Hey, we’re all in this industry, we all do interviews and we all know how they manipulate s—,” she replied. “Nicki, congratulations.”

With Cyrus saying that her mic has already been cut off and she was saying:

“Don’t play with me, b—- …don’t play with me.”

Real or fake it made my night.


Yeezus Tour Kickoff


(Source: AllHipHopFiles)

Hey guys, my name is Basile Shingu and starting today I’ll be making post for my bro Travis blog. I’m honored that he gave me the opportunity to do something as awesome as this.

One of my biggest inspirations and my favorite artist Kanye West kicks off Yeezus tour last night. I’m super pumped for this day to come, unfortunately I won’t be able to attend the show since Ye’ is coming to my city (Charlotte, NC). The tour kicks begins in Seattle. This Kanye’s first tour in 5 years and it will feature Kendrick Lamar and other special guest. If you are going to show and wondering if there will be any merchandise, don’t worry, Kanye’s barber Ibn Jasper and creative assistant Virgil Abloh posted pictures on Instagram of some the merch. If you want to see it go check out their Instagram @ibnjasper @virgilabloh. There are a lot of merch that I think fans would love to have their hands. I was hoping for Kanye to make a tee of the Yeezus tour cover art that’s on his website. This is a tour no one wants to miss out on, Kanye never disappoints when it comes to killing the stage. Yeezy season is approaching.

Kris the Day Time Talk Show…..CANCELLED!!!!



Now y’all know I mean no type of harm to anyone or anything but why did she have a show in general? Kris Jenner is a nice little lady even though she called TMZ and now has them reporting on Lamar Odom saying that he is on crack which is rumored. The Kardashian family are a cute family to me they are all doing something with their lives from my understanding. Just day time talk show is not for Kris she needs to be where she was before answering phone calls on Kim’s behalf she good at that.


Now you don’t got to lie Kris you know you don’t. Kris the U.S.A kind of doesn’t want to see you. I mean we already see the Kardashian family on a daily basis right or wrong?

“It’s a very crowded market and Kris didn’t do anything to set herself apart from the field. Believe it or not, most of America doesn’t want to hear about the Kardashian’s for an hour everyday,” ~ One source told Radar Online

Now the tweet says that they had a six week summer run. Please tell me where? Run on the track? Running Kim’s stuff? Running to TMZ? What cause I didn’t see anything on my television screen and this TWC bill is always paid. Once again though all the money they have I know there is something she can do. Why not open a pet store? Haven’t heard of a celeb do that. (Source: FunkyDineva)

The famous rapper Kanye West and the also famous Kim Kardashian child North West has been shown. It was rumored that Kanye & Kim were waiting for the highest offer from a magazine to get a picture of North but that rumored has been squashed. The 36 years of age dad joined Kris Jenner for the season finally of “Kris” her talk show and he brought a surprise with him…NORTH!!! All I know is this baby has Kim written all over her. Kim has some very strong genes. I’m happy for the parents and we all know this baby has some big things coming to her. 



Nominees For The 2013 BET Awards


File:BET Logo.svg

So from this list I see that the BET 2013 Awards took a good bit of care of the rapper Drake by nominating him multiple times. The rapper of the hit “HYFR” leads with a whopping 12 nominations including four for Best Collaboration, five for Video of the Year, and one for Best Male Hip Hop Artist which  he is lined up with 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar, Future, and A$AP Rocky. Even though nothing will be handed out till the 30th of June from what I see things are getting good. Chris Brown only got one nomination for Best Male R&B Artist but on the bright side he is a scheduled performer along with R. Kelly. Rihanna grabbed three nominations Best Female R&B Artist, Coca-Cola Viewers Choice Award, and Video of the Year, two of them are for her big hit “Diamonds”.  Not to far from Drake Kendrick Lamar and 2 Chainz have eight nominations right behind them is A$AP Rocky with five and Justin Timberlake with four with Jay-Z and Miguel. Sadly Frank Ocean came up empty even though he was a tad bit dissed for his Grammy performance of “Forrest Gump”.  With the music nomination’s there are movie nominations such as Jamie Foxx, Kerry Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Denzel Washington, and the oh so cute Quvenzhane Wallis from Beasts of the Southern Wild. Charlie Wilson will be receiving a lifetime achievement award.

MET Gala 2013 Fashions Bless Em


I’m a tad bit late but I just got to see all of the wonderful and just plain hideous outfits of the MET Gala this year and now time for me to speak on it. Of course all credit goes to the photographer of these photos because if I were to be at MET Gala you best believe I would be walking that red carpet in front of paparazzi. (To make sure you know) Now lets jump into the outfits I actually care to comment on:

Image Now y’all no I mean no harm little o’l Kim K but now listen she know that was way too much print. But I swore up and down my grandmother had that somewhere in her home I think it was either her curtains or her couch one of them them two. She probably did that print because that bump she has oh ya that baby bump. Plus Kanye was there…they had to show out. 


So I’m looking at this pictures and all I saw was skin so I wanted some hot sauce to be put on that thigh I see. Then I realized it was just Beyonce with a wonderful gown on that so happen to look like the breading at KFC. Jay Z must have bitten off some the dress/breading that is why that thigh is out. But overall Beyonce looked very nice I just want her to change up her hair once in a while…PLEASE!!!


Then this wonderful goddess appeared across my screen….*Eyes get big* Nicki Minaj to me looked like she came straight out of a Disney as a evil witch with that hair and dress of hers but that is still my lover. Overall she did her little thing and looked real good the hair now I’m loving. 

ImageLawd bless Madonna…..Old but still kicking.

The MET Gala 2013 this year was pretty nice but nothing too amazing. I enjoyed the fashions….and the laughs I got from it.
