Get a Passion for Jeremy Passion

Jeremy Passion is an artist out of the Bay are that makes some of the best music I've heard in a really long time and you need to know about him. Let me tell you how I found out about him.....When I was a freshman in college I heard this song 'Lemonade' being performed at an open mic by this guy I went to college with. Chile, I got my LIFE when I heard this song #facts. I followed this guy all around just town so I  could hear me some 'Lemonade'.  Anyway, eventually this guy graduates and I don't hear this song again until early this year when I randomly stumbled upon Jeremy Passion on YouTube and found out that he was the person who wrote 'Lemonade' #Boom. [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BReizDgcj1c] Turns out Jeremy Passion is something like a BOSS....

Make Kony Famous 2012

There is a campaign asking celebrities and other public figures to bring attention to Joseph Kony, the leader of the LRA and the gross acts he's initiated on Ungandan people, more specifically, children of Uganda. The video below is asking for help in making Joseph Kony famous this year, 2012. Watch it... [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4MnpzG5Sqc&w=560&h=315] Ok, I'm not going to lie.... I'm incredibly annoyed after watching this video, and it's not because people don't need to know about Joseph Kony...

The Misunderstood Side of Aubrey Drake Graham

So this month's issue of Vibe features  Nicki Minaj on the cover and with a tag line to the right of her head asking "Why Is Drake So Angry?" Inside of the magazine features an article on Drake entitled 'The Dark Side Of Aubrey Graham'. (Full article in mag) Facts you should be aware of: Drake initially was supposed be on the cover. It didn't happen due to a wardrobe conflict that ended with him leaving the shoot. Drake reportedly wasn't feeling the direction of stylist provided, peaced out, compensated everyone for their time and Nick Minaj got the cover. So I figured when I opened the magazine a venetian Blind was going to straight fall out that jawn #shade. Instead what I read was not unlike a lot of things I've read, heard and seen recently in reference to Drake. Perhaps I shouldn't say recently...I'm going to go with post 'So Far Gone'. I mean aside from the fact that Drake is referred to as a diva for leaving the cover shoot, most of the pseudo shady things put forth in the article are basically par for the course when discussing Drake. As a Drake fan I've heard him be called emo, or soft, or accused of T-paining it more times than I can count. It gets old. But it did get me to thinking about Drake's fair share of critics and I'm basically convinced that he is misunderstood. (Or hot in these streets, your pick.) ...
