The Artistry of Jazz Horn


Jazzmeia Horn has a name that speaks for itself, capturing her very essence. She is a strong and passionate vocalist that I had the pleasure to meet many years ago and befriended her. Jazz not only getting a precious gift from God she used every ounce to her best advantage; by attending Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing Arts and then leaving off to College in to the Mecca of culture and talent New York City. For some people music is just jamming to it but with Jazz she gets emotionally “involved” like it tells a special story of her own. Some of Ms. Horns influences include people such as Sarah Vaughan, Carmen Mc Rae, Nancy Wilson, Billie Holiday, Teri Thornton, Bobby McFerrin, Betty Carter, and so many more.

Jazzmeia has a name that expresses who she is and what she loves to do. This young lady has a God given talent and isn’t afraid to use it. She will make it to the top, POINT BLANK…..

CyKeem White A Model On The Rise


We all have our own digital camera it’s how we use it to express our creativity. And one person who accomplishes that is CyKeem D. White. This young man to the camera that was given to him and took it to the next level; creating a whole new swag with his name. Checking out his facebook pictures you would see what I am talking about. CyKeem is a 21 year old college student who took his pictures to the modeling stage. Mr. White has been modeling for about a year now but his works are exquisite, from vintage styles, the GQ look and that sex appeal aura. He has done countless shoots that continues to build his portfolio that will soon supersede others in his field. This up and coming model out of Dallas, Texas takes his inspiration from God and his motivation and creativity from his family. CyKeem repeatedly expresses how much his family means to him and how they give him the will to continue his dream. If it was me I would have it no other way. I give kudos to this young man for his work ethics and his own personal style, and hope that he continues this route.

If you want to watch him in action follow him on twitter @whereisweirdo or look him up on facebook ( and you can checkout his blog at

Coon Really???


Today the word “COON” for the young African American (blacks) have became popular. Yes such a derogatory word like this has. Some are replacing the word nigger and using the harsher word. The word coon is used as an action, or a noun. Such as two people can be talking and joking around and one of them says “shut up you coon,” instead of saying “man shut” or “shut up my nigga”. Either way it is wrong. Even saying “that is just plain coonery.”

Taking this word and using it as a new term is ridiculous. I admit that that I have used it until I further my knowledge on the word. Especially when an older woman overheard some children say the word and had a talk. She explained that her brother killed a white man for calling him a coon. And her brother was then hung. I find that the word is not a joke, it is not funny. Neither is using the word nigga but it is used sadly to say by our black youth today. This is keeping us in the “white man’s” stereotype.

For those who don’t know Coon is a Derogatory term for black people. Similar to "nigger." Originally a shortened form of the word "raccoon," used in reference to the animal. The black eye masks and nocturnal habits of the animal paralleled the characteristics of typical robbers and thieves. The stereotype was then applied to black people, back in the late 18oo’s early 19oo’s. Your tongue is a sword so be careful how you use it.

This is for my grandmother who passed away from breast cancer, my cousin who fought it and won. This is for all the ladies and their families who are fighting this disease. Breast Cancer is one of the most common malignancies in women of the U. S.

Breast cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the breast. It is considered a heterogeneous disease, differing by individuals, age groups, and even the kinds of cells within the tumors themselves. Each year it is estimated that nearly 200,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,000 will die. Approximately 1,700 men will also be diagnosed with breast cancer and 450 will die each year.

October is Breast Cancer awareness month and we as a community should take this into huge consideration and become involved in raising the awareness. It could be your mother, sister or best friend who is fighting it alone and feel that they can’t tell you about it. I support with my I LOVE BOOBS t-shirt and watch! Breast Cancer is NOT a joke. Become active, become AWARE.

Man On The Moon:End Of Story


(This is easy Sunday morning ... and we're right here on a beautiful morning in Cleveland, Ohio ... and it's chilly, kids are going to school ... the grass is frosty ... this should be my theme song to life...Hello, Cleveland ...) Bobbin’ my head to just the right beat, smooth, relaxing and putting me in the zone. My ipod is playing Hyyerr by Kid Cudi ft Chip The Ripper. I’m mellowed out not from weed cause I don’t smoke but I’m mellowed from this song. I’m steady writing lines after lines because this is the kind of vibe Kid Cudi gives. It took me a while to really just get involved in his music but once I did, it became end of story. His first appearance on 106 and Park leaking of his new video and song Day & Night is where it all began. It did take awhile for the song to grow on me I just wasn’t feeling it. The beat got me but the lyrics just didn’t have me quite hooked. I played it more acapella and started to feel it more. The Cleveland, Ohio rapper is something amazing people wants to compare him to Wale and Kahkifa but that’s not possible because dude style is wicked different. Yeah a lot of his songs might have to do with drugs but the way he delivers each song and the mad creativity he puts forth in his work. Like his song Soundtrack To My Life which is killer as well Cudi delivers his own personal story over grating guitar beat with futuristic drum pattern and beeps, getting real introspective as he looks inside his soul to the depths of depression, discussing his upbringing, drugs/alcohol as problem solvers. Another hit on his album Man On The Moon: End of Story is Simple As, taking the sample from 1983 Dazzle Ships (Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark: “ABC (Auto-Industry)” smashed it and made it his. Many artist sample from others rather they admit it or not but they do the original no justice, but in Kid Cudi case I beg to differ. He added other instrumentals to it and dope lyrics. It When the song starts off makes me this of some old white/ hippie songs from the late 60s and early 80’s.

Kid Cudi music is creditable something I can’t say for rappers now days.
