NYC Subway Dancing

If you’re from NYC, you no doubt ride the trains sometimes.  You’re no doubt going to see the dance routines performed by the NYC youth in order to make a few dollars for themselves.  Most of the routines you see rate from just terrible to simply amazing.  I’d like to share an absolutely amazing video of one of the mentioned NYC subway routines.  I’m from NYC and ride the subways a lot, I’ve seen many dance routines and this is probably one of the best I’ve seen.

Music Art

We all appreciate artwork, but music art is especially enjoyable for us, whether it’s through sculpture, Photoshop, drawing, painting or whatever.  Graffiti in the 70’s and 80’s brought a special element to Hip Hop, that paved the way for art of today.  I’d like to share some music art that I’ve ran across, let me know what you think.

 

 

Amber Rose

Amber Rose came to fame by being fine and being Kanye West’s girl.  Then she started dating Wiz Kalifa and eventually married him.  They broke up, but she continued to be famous by creating slut shaming and eventually getting her own reality show.  So now that all fame came from her keeping up her looks, but Daily Mail posted some pictures of her looking not so fine as usual.  You can see she’s not as shapely any more and is gaining weight.  She started her career as a stripper and always got over on her looks.  While in these pictures she doesn’t look horrible, but if she keeps this downfall going, she eventually will.  So let’s see what her next move is going to be.  I’m going to imagine that she will continue to hit the gym and get her awesome shape back.  Full picture below….

Soulja Boy Charged With Felony Gun Possession

Souljah Boy is being charged with felony gun possession of an assault weapon and possession of a firearm as a felon.  These charges come from his arrest over a probation violation back in December where cops found firearms in his house.  One of the guns found at his house was reportedly stolen from a cop car.  The also found a Mini Draco AR-15, an assault weapon which is illegal to own in the state of California.  Soulja Boy is facing up to 4 years in prison for the charges.  He is also supposed to have a boxing match with Chris Brown in March, his latest social media story.  I wondering what he needs all of those weapons for, he must be on someone’s hit list to risk his freedom like that.

New School vs Old School

I’ve had this debate with people for so long, I’d like to end it with the opinion of you.  Are the new school of artists not as talented as the old school artists from back in the day.  We all know the answer to that, but it seems the younger generation seems too always go for the new school artists.  But I only think that because they refuse to listen to any music that is more than a few months old in the first place.  I’m going to post videos of songs from the old school and compare them to new school artists that are actually in the same class and let you decide which is better.  This list will be added to on a regular basis, so check back often.  Please leave your answers in the comment section below.  Hope you enjoy and let me know what you think.
