Lola Falana

My dad would always treasure his JET magazine with Lola Falana, he had a thing for the redbone and I could dig that major! Lola was born Loletha Elaine Falana to a Cuban father and an African-American mother, which explains her beautiful complexion. Discovered by Sammy Davis Jr.  Lola was the triple threat in the 70’s she could sing, dance and act and was referred to by many as the queen of Las Vegas. Her eyes are what gets me the most………She’s Dope b.

New Muslim Cool

new-muslim-cool1

I seen this on the Social Light Sounds page and almost fell out my chair! My brother Jay now known as Hamza will be on PBS tonight in a documentary called New Muslim Cool. I remember making a few beats for M-Team back in the day but what I  remember most is my experience working with Hamza through the YMCA. I was in a situation where I had to make moves quick, my sons couldn’t wait they needed to eat and i was going to feed them by any means. Hamza was my boss at Youth net (YMCA), we already had a prior relationship from doing shows etc throughout the local scene which made it easier for me to respect him.  In a matter of days we became very tight and he started teaching, putting me onto the world and not what we see on the news. He made me realize there was more than just selling drugs and getting money, he made me look within myself. I had no car and this man would pick me up every single day to work and build, it was deeper than rap (excuse the ross pun).  Hamza when you read this, know that you did reach a young brother for real. Allahu Akbar. -Brother Menelik Ebna la-Hakim (Av)

What We Do – Freeway ft. Jay-Z & Beanie Sigel

Gotta kill witnesses cause Free beards stickin out

Three of the ROC’s finest go extremely hard on this classic Freeway track from the Philadelphia Freeway album in 2002.  The beat was crafted by Just Blaze at a time when Bleezy could do no wrong.  Unfortunately because Universal Music Group is wack and won’t let youtube embed the actual video for this song you’ll have to settle for the audio.Download/Stream–>http://www.zshare.net/audio/607824846dd21bd7/

Man Shot For Talking at The Movies

Movie Noise Shootingcircus_cinema_seats_0_preview

A man pissed that a family was chatting during a movie threw popcorn at the son and shot the father according to Philadelphia police. James Cialella, 29 was charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and weapons violations. I guess the story is Cialella told the family in front of him to be quiet during a showing of “The Curios Case of Benjamin Button”, a argument ensued and then the shot was fired and popcorn thrown.

 

Cialella was holding a .380 caliber handgun clipped inside his sweatpants police reported. Oh yea this all happened on Christmas day, I guess the movie is worth licking shots for.
