KELIS SPEAKS HER MIND ON NAS


"My feelings about it are not really relevant, but at the end of the day, Nas is an artist and for whatever it's worth, he's one of the greatest, especially for what it is that he does. For me, I feel like, especially for someone in Hip Hop, to really kind of be genuine and honest - whatever the honesty is about - I think it's awesome. So my feelings about it aren't necessarily valid, it's just the fact that, as an artist, I can respect that he wears his feelings on his sleeve. I like that."

THIS MAY SOUND GENUINE BUT, TRUTHFULLY I DONT BELIEVE SHE TRULY MEANS WHAT SHE SPEAKS ON. KELIS HAS A HISTORY OF HAVING ANIMOSITY AGAINST FORMER LOVERS.. WHAT DO YOU ALL BELIEVE?

Daley ft. Marsha Ambrosius - Alone Together




UK ARTIST AND BBC INTRODUCING INDUCTEE DALEY HAS BEEN SHAKING THE MUSIC SCENE UP SINCE 2009. THE QWEENS HAPPEN TO COME UPON HIM JUST A FEW HOURS AGO AND LOVE IT! A CROONER INDEED HE IS AND TO ADD MARSHA AMBROSIUS ON THE TRACK IS THE ICING ON THE CAKE. HOPE YOU ALL ENJOY

FANS LASH OUT AT ERIC BENET OVER "REDBONE GIRL"



I think it’s its own form of racism,” he told CBS Local of the controversy. “I did a song called “Chocolate Legs’ about my experience with a dark skin lady. There was no anger or uproar of ‘How dare you.’ So ‘Redbone Girl’ is one song about one experience about a girl who happens to be light complected but there was quite an uproar.”

IF THE COMMUNITY OF BLACK WOMEN CONTINUE TO LASH OUT OVER THIS, EVERY TIME AN ARTIST DEPICTS A CERTAIN COLOR OF A WOMAN, THEN YES WE NEED TO SPEAK ON IT. WHEN WE FINALLY SPEAK ON IT THEN IT NEEDS TO BE LET GO. IF THE COLOR OF YOUR SKIN DEFINES WHOM YOU ARE DESTINED TO BE WITH THEN THAT'S SAD.

D.C. PASTOR GETS TESTED FOR HIV IN THE PULPIT!




HIV IS NOT A GAY DISEASE

I PERSONALLY DON'T BELIEVE THAT THE AIDS EPIDEMIC IS JUST ONLY AFFECTING THE BLACK COMMUNITY. IT SADDENS ME, TO COME ACROSS THOSE THAT ARE HIV POSITIVE AND HEAR THEM SAY "IF ONLY I COULD GO BACK IN TIME" OR "WHY DIDNT I USE A CONDOM? " THE YOUTH OF TODAY ARE SO PRONE TO ILLICIT SEXUAL EXCURSIONS THAT THEY BELIEVE THEY ARE INVISIBLE OR UNTOUCHABLE FROM THINGS LIKE STDs&HIV. THIS VIDEO WITH WASHINGTON DC PASTOR REV. ANTHONY LEE SPEAKS VOLUMES OF WHAT MANY CHURCHES, ESPECIALLY BLACK CHURCHES DONT SEEM TO SPEAK ON WITH THEIR YOUTH. OUR YOUTH ARE CRYING OUT BY THEIR ACTIONS. GIVING UP THE TREASURE YOU HOLD DOWN YONDER SHOULDNY LEAD TO A LIFE FULL OF SICKNESS IF THEY WOULD JUST "WRAP IT UP!" THE QWEENS COMMEND THIS PASTOR AND PRAY GOD BLESSES ALL HIS ENDEAVORS

Resilience: The WOMEN OF Haiti



The earthquake that shook the Caribbean island of Haiti didn't shake the determination of the dozen of people in Haiti. Each day they grow stronger,weary and frustrated. Yet they don't quit they Survive... Once you see this video you will probably understand as I do why many Haitians are proud to be Haitian but not proud of what they see in their country on a daily basis. I am quite taken aback when I do hear one young women vent her frustration and yells she wants "Duvalier" back? From all that I have read and seen, President/Dictator Duvalier put Haiti into the ruins its in now. Especially financially. Anyone Haitian understand why this is so, for so many to agree for his return over the new President that currently resides there?

Condolences to Tameka Foster-Raymond&Family


I am a mom and have been fortunate to not have to know what it is to lose a child. The media and fans dont understand the depth of hurt that affects a mother when losing a child. They are only looking from the outside in. The Qweens send their condolences and pray she finds peace and comfort in the arms of Jesus. RIP KILE GOVER ALSO TO THE YOUNG LADY WHO PAST AWAY AS WELL

New music: Wish-Everything From You

Everything From You



New Artist on the scene to the Qweens but apparently shes been out for a while. This cutie "WISH" comes to you with her 2nd single "Everything from you"  off her soon due mixtape "Me against Her" . Yes she has a 90s flow to her ... She some what reminds me of loving heart-breaker former Bad Boy artist Cherri Dennis. The artist known as Wish seems to be a hot blonde beach babe whose only wish is to romance you and keep you desiring more from her musically. The tune is nice and it gets you dancing. What do you all believe?

New music: Mel Carter (Jay-z's nephew)



Mel Carter releases first single off sophomore album; signs with PR firm CCTM, LLC.

New York, NY – July 18, 2012 – Brooklyn born, NJ bred rapper Mel Carter is ready to step out from the shadows of his powerhouse uncle Jay-Z and take the rap game by the reigns. His uncle may have inspired Mel Carter to turn his poetry into lyrics over dope beats, but the heart behind the music comes from the young star himself.

Gearing up for a Fall 2012 drop of his sophomore project "Popular Stranger", Mel Carter releases his first single today entitled "Dark Shades". Inspired by the obstacles faced as an emerging artist, love lost and gained, and Mel's dedication to his hustle and success, "Popular Stranger" will surely set Mel Carter apart and above the rest of his rap classmates.

words by publicist Carolyn Ortiz (Mel Carter's manager/publicist)
S/O to Carolyn Ortiz for all her recent and soon to come success we are humble to know her, congrats to you lady!

Women business's Suffers to a Mans World

The following video revels the statistics and data collected during a survey/research project about women struggling in the business world due to the typical favor toward men in this current economy.

D.ChamberZ Mixtape Release event



I arrived at the HLL (High LIFE LOUNGE) yesterday evening for a night
of good drinks and good music. The last thing booming out of Coney
Island I thought was the Warriors(the movie), but I was wrong, artist D. Chamberz is the
next thing smoking out of Coney Island.  He dropped his
latest mix-tape “Warrior Mentality” hosted by Dj Messiah. My favorite
song off his mix-tape is track 4 “Holla @ Ya Boy” featuring Fred the
Godson
who was in the building last night and my favorite rapper
Jadakiss.

 I’ve never been to the HIGH LIFE LOUNGE located in the village off
west 4 and to my surprise, it’s a small lounge that’s not really high
at all. I think my best part of the lounge was the bathroom. Very
girly and very clean. It was so weird they had like 4 bartenders all
women all catering to the guys … So much for good service; it took me
nearly 20 MINUTES to get a drink. But that’s wasn’t the only thing that
I had to wait for. The Dj was having technical problems that nobody,
not even the manager knew how to fix. But no need for worry as soon as
Dj Zeke came thru the door aka “The Go to Kid” he was waved down and
eventually fixed the problem. It’s always nice to see familiar faces
in the crowd, s/o to Buda the producer. It was nice seeing him. There
were a lot of battle rappers in the building as well. When I saw this
guy walk by me with what looked like a wrestling champ belt I was just
like are you serious? Who is he supposed to be? Ha, he looked like he
was winning with a girl on each arm …really? Oh how can I forgot D,
must be doing it big in C.I between him and his boys they had girls in
and out of the stretch SUV that was parked in front of the spot while
the party went on. Some were a yes an others were a HELL NO.

What started off as a slow night ended out ok. I grabbed me a gift bag
said my goodbyes and was on my way.
