Im always reluctant to post songs when ppl email/tweet/dm/facebook me and say its my friend/bro/sis/cousin etc, especially if its someone I know. Why? I dunno...I always feel obligated to post things from my friends. Lol. Im kind of a pushover that way. BUT in this case I am beyond estatic that I posted Henry's song. I absolutely love it, and look forward to hearing more music from him. He has a super smooth flow, and although the video is simple its fits perfectly with the overall theme of the song.And he is quite the looker! Be sure to follow him on Twitter @HenryOgirri and subscribe to you his YouTube channel.
In a day and age where female emcees are almost non existent Lady Jazz is quickly making a name for herself, and nope that name isnt Tami Roman's daughter. Im not a huge fan of underground artist...mainly because their topics dont interest me...but Jazz is ahead of her time. Her lyrics are realistic and appropriate for her age. Her punch lines are on point. Her flow is solid; she rides the beat in every track. Check out her YouTube and get acquainted. She is def TammyTalks approved. Check out her remix to Drake's "Underground Kings" = Underground Queens "Sometimes I need a reality check cuz I bank on those that dont come through"
Well I think we all saw this coming in Season 3. Well, Jennifer recently did an interview with I Power’s TT Torrez where she finally confirmed that her and Ev are no longer friends. Ummm yeah, as if we didnt see the subliminal tweets this summer. Lol. Anyways, shout out to NecoleBitchie for the info. Check out Jennifer's interview after the jump
This song is crazy...I absolutely love it. Like everything about it from the beat to the flow to the lyrics. Ive been a BOB fan since day 1...and the fact that he teamed up with 3 Stacks is epic. 3 Stacks killed his verse...I cant wait to see the visual for this song.
Im not a huge xFactor fan (didnt watch the entire season) but I completely believe Melanie deserved to win based on the last performances I saw. This performance touched me...damn near had a tear in my eye. Lol And yall thought Kelz would never sing again after his surgery. Yeah right....
Now I was getting sick and tired of all of Jennifer Hudson's Weight Watchers commercial with that same song. LoL. But when this one was released it made me actually believe in the program. This commercial shows the tremendous physical difference in J Hud since using Weight Watcher. Take a look
Ive loved this song since it first came out, the beat is so hard. I didnt expect a visual but hey cool. Its a super simple video but gets straight to the point. The definite highlight of the video is Lil Wayne randomly dancing...but his boots were distracting as hell. LMAO
R Kelly has written 32 more chapters to Trapped In The Closet...sigh...I was over it after the like 6th one. Lol. However R Kelly seems to not be over the never ending saga. Check out the clip below and look how excited he is. LoL video platform video management video solutions video player
Luther Vandross "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" Luther has a voice that just makes you wanna melt. Lol. His smooth velvety voice just makes it feel like Christmas. Boyz II Men "Let It Snow" Boyz II Men have always had perfect pitch and harmony so of course they sound awesome on a Christmas song...while Let It Snow isnt a traditional Christmas its still one of my favs.
So a Dutch magazine decided to run a story about Rihanna...seems harmless right? Well not if youre called a "nigga bitch" WTF is that?! Sigh...below is their description of a nigga bitch “She has street cred, she has a ghetto ass and she has a golden throat. Rihanna, the good girl gone bad, is the ultimate n***abitch and displays that gladly, and for her that means: what’s on can come off. If that means she’ll be on stage half naked, then so be it. But Dutch winters aren’t like Jamaican ones, so pick a clothing style in which your daughter can resist minus ten. No to the big sunglasses and the porn heels, and yes to the tiger print, pink shizzle and everything that glitters. Now let’s hope she won’t beat anybody up at daycare.” I know Rihanna has been on sort of a downhill spiral but damn....that is so disrepectful. Rihanna then fired back on Twitter with @evajackie I hope u can read english, because your magazine is a poor representation of the evolution of human right
So is anyone surprised? Tamar Braxton has been the life of Braxton Family Values..she is the main reason a number of ppl tune. Well she is certainly earning her keep on WETV; they recently ordered 8 hour long episodes of her new show. Her new reality show will follow her and Vince through their everyday life but more specifically we will get to see her singing career blossom. While I am interested to see the show....I hope this doesnt end Braxton Family Values, I like seeing the sisters dymanic together. Filming for Tamar's show starts in march of 2012
Nicki Minaj's alter ego, Roman, is back with another Lil Kim diss song. LMAO While its not official if it is a blatant diss on the Queen B...we all know. Honestly I think the song is stupid. The whole lets bash Lil Kim routine is getting kinda old...I want Nicki to get back to spittin like she did on her mixtapes. But check it out...she has some slick punchlines and the song is quite entertaining.
I came across this song yesterday on FlyeRadio, now Im not big on Milwaukee's music scene...I listen to very few faithfully. But Ive obviously been sleeping on Pizzle. Wow is all I can say about the song. Pizzle teamed up with Milwaukee's own Rico Love, yep the Grammy award winning songwriter. The song seems like a big bro talking to their young brother giving advice. I like the concept...and yep Rico shit on someone. Lol. Check it out below.
Mr Wrong is one of my favorite songs off of MJBs latest album. The video is simple yet draws you in and you cant stop looking. At first I was kinda upset Drake wasnt included, but the second go around I realize the song is better without him (yeah not all songs new a rap verse). Check it out below.
Michelle Williams is super underrated...maybe because Destiny's Child put her in Beyonce's shadow. I have always loved Michelle's voice! Something about that raspy southern twang her voice adds to songs makes them 10x better. So number 6 on my list is her rendition of "O Holy Night".
Every year Billboard posts the "Critics' Picks: 20 Best Songs of the Year" and the list for 2011 is intersting as hell!! Ummmmm I have some major concerns about it. LoL. There are some songs that shouldnt have made and some others that should have. Is your favorite song of the year listed? Find out after the jump.
Christmas is in a week!! Yikes!! Lol. I absolutely love Christmas music...I listen to it year round....no seriously I do. So all this week I will be posting my top favorite 7 Christmas songs. #7 Goes to Stevie Wonder "Someday at Christmas"... I absolutely love this song, its not a traditional Christmas song but the words are so powerful. It would be dope if Stevie's wish actually come true.
This past week Vanessa Bryant filed for divorce from super star baller Kobe. Why you ask? Because she thinks he is being unfaithful. Ummmm Vanessa duh!!!! Dont you remember Colorado a few years back? No here is my question.....you stayed with him after that, oh and after the $4 mil ring but NOW you want a divorce....something isnt right about this. Word is there ISNT a prenup...maybe if Kobe had went to college for at least a semester he could have taken a business class about protecting his assets and would have had one drawn. But dah well...good luck to both of them.
Chris Brown released a new video for a track off of his upcoming album Fortune, which is due out next year. The video shows a Chris Brown and friend, Kevin McCall, having numerous parties just hanging out having fun.
Lemme just start this post off by saying this is not 100% factual. Lol. After going to several blogs this story popped up numerous times so thought I would post it to assume yall. So we all remember last season when Jen and Ev's friendship hit a snag when Jen was on the radio calling Ochocinico an "attention whore" and what not, and Ev got offended. The remainder of the season it was obvious there was tension between the two fo them. Then there was the mysterious subtweet war between the 2 of them this summer that left fans wondering if they had ended their friendship. Well lets fast forward to now. Season 4 of BBW is currently being filmed, and Jen and Ev came to blows at Shaunie's bday party. Once source that was at the party claims to have seen the fight, this is what they are reporting:
When Steve Harvey first wrote the book Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man he set the world on fire. Now that it has been adapted into a feature film that buzz is back. The star studded movie hits theaters March 9, 2012. Check out the trailer below.
According to a report in the New York Post, the singer will continue the 10-year multi-rights deal with Live Nation — said to be worth as much as $100 million — that she signed in 2007, but has inked a three-album pact with Interscope at a base of $1 million per album. Billboard.biz’s source could not confirm the terms of the deal at press time but said the report sounded right. Sources indicated to Billboard early last month that Madonna was likely to ink with Interscope. Catch the rest of the story over at Global 14 by clicking here . Now what will this mean for Lady Gaga...you Madonna's prototype? Will Gaga have to switch up her style and be original and stop jockin old skool Madonna swag? LoL We will see.
Tyler Perry is hitting the silver screen again in February to bring release his latest feature film Good Deeds. And guess what?! Madea was no where in sight. Lol Now dont get me wrong I love Madea....but lets give her a rest. So I watched the trailer for Good Deeds and it looks awesome!! I really cant wait to see it. Of course the movie was written, produced and directed by Tyler Perry. LoL It also stars Thandie Newton, Brian White, Rebecca Romijn, Jamie Kennedy, Eddie Cibrian,Jordenn Thompson, Beverly Johnson, with Phylicia Rashad, and Gabrielle Union.
Collin Gibson is a Milwaukee bred rapper living out the dream in Atlanta...if you recall I interviewed Collin right here on TammyTalks...click here to check out the interview. The first time I heard Collin rap was in highschool at our Ethnic Fest and this man switched it up and started rapping in Spanish. Lol. Ive been a huge fan since then. So of course when I heard he had a new song/video I had to check it out and it lived it up to the hype he put around it. The track "Milatlanta" paints a picture of his transition from Milwaukee to Atlanta and life as a rapper. I love it...and the video is simple but effective. Check it out below and follow him on Twitter @Collin_Gibson
Remember that awkward moment when Mystikal signed with Cash Money? Lol. And we all thought it was a joke or rumor....or we at least hoped it was. Well its official and to prove Mystikal has put out his first signal as a member of the Cash Money. Featuring none other that Weezy and Baby. I am still so undecided as to whether I like the song or not. Mystikal still has the same ratchet/crazy flow, but it doesnt seem to gel with the beat or with Wayne's and Baby's style of rap. Check out "Oriignal" below.
So after months of lying and hiding her pregnancy Fantasia finally admitted during chairyt event that she was pregnant, it was later revealed that it was by her lover Antuan Cook, (yep the married TMobile man). Well she finally had her baby, a healthy baby boy named Dallas Xavier. Ummm yeah congrats Fantasia. Lol
