Born and raised in San Francisco, Ca, I've been a local sports fan for about 26 years now. Have a passion for the 49ers, Giants, Warriors. Have a respect and a disliking (hahaha) for the Raiders and A's. Following Cal and Stanford College hoops, College football, NFL, WNBA, and NBA. Will be giving you perspective from a young black male growing up here in the bay area. Holding no punches. Hope ya'll enjoy
Ahh Come on people! You don’t remember this song? When white boys were soulful? Man Lou Gramm was singing his ass off on this song. “Deep in the night” that is my favorite part.
The Notorious B.I.G. f. 112 ‘Sky’s the Limit
I think this was my favorite Biggie song ever. I wasn’t a huge Biggie fan growing up. But I really loved this concept. While Niggaz flirt/I’m sewing tigers on my shirts and alligators/ya wanna see the inside, ill see you later. They did a great job using little kids who all look like, Biggie, Faith, 112, and Puff Daddy.
Man remember when buying the CDs to your favorite movie? Yes buying the soundtrack. I loved the 1996 movie Set It Off. En Vogue was my favorite Woman’s R&B group in the 90s. That passion though? Hahahaha.
This song is dope. It samples The Fugees “Killing Me Softly” which samples Roberta Flack’s “Killing Me Softly” Rap is always sampling something, right? But I love this jam because it’s paying homage. This is off of Fabolous’s Summertime Shootouts album.
Well thank you for looking at my 1st music post last week. I got a good response so let’s do it again.
Alessia Cara “Here”
Lmfao yes! I love this song. When I was a tour bus driver, my co workers daughter would always sing this song. I had no idea what she was singing about but I loved the story. About a teenage girl who gets dragged to a party by her friends. She clearly did not want to be at said party. Hahahaha. She was singing her lil ass off tho.

Hey there everyone. I hope you have a great weekend. If you have 5 minutes to spare, please watch a VLOG I did on my break. It’s a quick 5 minute VLOG on IggyAzelea‘s new song called “MoBounce.” I also talk about Sexism, CultureAppropriation, Sex, Misogyny, Rap, Ladies, Fatherhood, Feminist etc. I really appreciate the love and support and would love to hear from you, The Reader. Thank You
Ok, I figure I share with you good folks some music from my library every Tuesday. I will be selecting 3 songs. Seeing that I listen to a wide variety of music. Meet me in the comments to discuss.
Marsha Ambrosius “Stronger”
The beautifully gifted singer had T-Money’s blessing to redo Sade’s “Love Is Stronger Than Pride” off of Sade’s Stronger Than Pride album, which was released in 1988. You can find Marsha’s version off her 2014 album Friends & Lovers.
I remember always listening to this song every time my Uncle Renaldo would take me out for one of our crazy adventures. It was always playing in the speakers outside where he hung out at. This song is off of Ann’s Straight from the heart album. Ilove the pain on her voice.
Man y’all remember Link? The 69 song called “Whatchagonnado”? This song right here though? Man oh man. Hahahaha don’t hurt em Young Tareau. I had to bring it out of retirement. A lot of people do not remember, so it’s my pleasure to take it back. Link also wrote “My Body” by L.S.G. You can find this song on Link’s debut album called Sex Down.
AAAhhh Yes. This was a long time coming. It’s School Daze all over again. Light Skint Vs. Dark Skint. Real Nigga Vs. Black Guys like me. Jokingly it is very funny and I have no problem with the jokes,but it is when people actually feel this way about each other. Imagine being me for a day growing up. Yes I’m light Skint and I’m proud. Does that comes with any benefits? Yes. Honestly it does. I’m not going to lie about it. There is a lot of cocky arrogant Light Skint Brothas who have a lot of self hate about themselves. Problem is when a Light Skint Brotha is cocky, he gets called all kind of bad names. When a darker Brotha does it, it’s ok! But somehow in todays Black culture Light Skint has been labeled weak or frail. Nevermind that Muhammed Ali, Huey Newton, Malcolm X, William Alexander Leidesdorff are all Light Skint. But because of…
What’s up motown. Yea man, I’ve always admired the Detroit Pistons style of play. Tough, rough, rugged, physical. When I was growing up in the late 80s and Early 90s, my 2 favorite teams were my Golden State Warriors and The Detroit Pistons. Too bad I couldn’t play ball at a young age, but as I got older, in the mid 90s, I rebounded like Rodman. Here’s my 10 Favorite Pistons in my lifetime and with respect to RickMahorn, BillLambier, AdrianDantley, DaveBing, and yes even you BrianCardinal hahaha they didn’t make my list. Nothing personal.
Hopefully the 2017 DetroitPistons will see our posts and gives them motivation to move up in the standings. I’m rooting for y’all Motown so no more inconsistency. Snatch that 6th seed as the underground voice of the Pistonshas been telling y’all. Let’s get it.
