Can't Stop Won't Stop

I am a girl who wants the best

Until it is mine.

When did you fall in love with Hip-Hop?

Someone once told me I remind them of Hip-Hop. Our relationship reminded them of Hip-Hop.

With that being said, a man who doesn't understand & love Hip-Hop probably won't be able to love & understand me.

Hip-Hop will forever be a part of me. Love is love. My first & only. On some Brown Sugar shxt.

"I remember the exact day I fell in love with Hip Hop. (...). Little did I know how much Hip Hop would be a part of my life. (...). Hip hop was as young, naive... confused... sometimes innocent, and sometimes as mischievious as I was. And as I grew up, Hip Hop grew with me... and along the way it took on all my baggage, my dreams... I felt Hip Hop and Hip Hop felt me. And I know that everyone who loves the music feels the same way I do.

For many people Hip Hop was that first friend... the first to talk to us, the first to understand. Hip Hop has always been that kind of friend to me. And like any relationship... I watched it grow, I watched it change.

The union of Hip Hop to the mainstream... was a hard thing to imagine. Hip Hop was always this personal regional thing that belonged to just me. Starting with "Fab 5 Freddie" and Yo! MTV Raps! Anyone with a television set and cable box could get a piece of hip hop. I knew I was gonna have to share... and that was hard to get used to.

Just when you think you know everything there is to know about Hip Hop, it finds a way to surprise you... and remind you why you fell in love in the first place.

So what is the difference between "Rap" and Hip Hop? Its simple... Its like the difference between saying you love somebody... and being in love with somebody. "Rap" is just a word!

I always thought... One day I would outgrow my relationship with Hip Hop. I never thought it was a "fad" like many, but I never thought it could grow and mature. I thought it would be an adolescent memory I'd look back on... like a crush on the captain of the football team. But I realize we have more than that... much more. We have a history... a friendship... We listen to each other... We laugh together... We finish each others lyrics. I dont have to pretend with Hip Hop, and Hip Hop doesnt have to pretend with me. My feelings have never been more clear, and I know they will never go away."

Quote of The Week

"Only give up on love if it means you have to give up loving yourself." -Diandra

Nigga I'm Still Me

This song has been stuck in my head for the past week and I play it every morning. It's called Still Me by Dom Kenney and it's off his 2010 mixtape From The Westside With Love.

Dom Kennedy is a rapper from Cali who's been tryna make it in the game for a minute. He has a lot of dope tracks you should check him out as well as Casey Veggies & Kendrick Lamar. I love how Cali is coming back strong!

But anywho here's a piece of me, this song puts me in such a great mood and I hope it does the same for you. Enjoy.

"Still love hip-hop, still got the same gift & everytime I see her I swear I get the same kiss..."

MIA No Collins

I know I've been M.I.A
I deeply apologize to you all!
I'll try and post more I promise!


Love should never mean compromising yourself. Love should never make you cry yourself to sleep. Love should never hurt this bad. & Love should never make you feel like Mary back in 95'.

Support Good Music And Great Talent

It’s very rare that I come across hip-hop artist that I am genuinely wow’d by. Lately it seems hip-hop is slowly but surely coming back and artist are finally grasping the true essence of why many of us fell in love with it in the first place.

First it was Drake, then J.Cole and now we have a newcomer to add to my list. Mr. Freshman aka Ashton Travis. A fellow Howardite who is surely on his way. I’m always one for supporting good music, great talent and HU artists.

This multi-talented Houston,Texas native not only raps. You can hear him belt out a melodic song or recite a poetic story all on one track. His mixtape “Mr. Freshman” is a hit around campus and creating a huge internet buzz. Keep an eye on Mr. Ashton Travis, he’s one you need to be on the look out for. ;)

Check out the video below where he visited Def Jam A&R Lenny Santiago.


Download his mixtape on entitled “Mr. Freshman”

Also be sure to look out for his new mixtape “Mr. Freshman 2.0” dropping this June.

*Big shoutout to his manager Shenick keep doing your thing hun.

#HU!YOUKNOW! (you know I had to do it)

"Hindsight is always better than foresight..."

Just A Thought

Love is a complicated thing.
One I have yet to discover.
But I know when I do it's going to be great.
Real great.
Extraordinary even.
Nothing more nothing less.

But I'm not in a hurry.
Just curious.
That's all.

The Crew

I know I've been slacking on the blog but you guys I promise I'll try to update regularly. My life is really hectic right now but I love it! I finally found my passion and I'm grinding for what is mines. But enough about me. I want to introduce you all to someone...

Shakiyah Ivory

When I went away to college I heard stories of, "you'll make friends that'll last a lifetime;" but I never really thought it was true. Let's just say I've been proven wrong.
On August 16, 2008 at Howard University, in the Bethune Annex room 210 Eastside;
this Philadelphia native took my heart away

She's more than just my roomate.
More than my "college friend."
& More than one of my homegirls.
She is my partner in crime.
My personal consultant.
My support system.
My ride or die.
 My sister.

"We are young and while we have much to offer, we still have much to achieve. Instead of pouring so much of ourselves into other people we need to keep it to ourselves. It's our time to be selfish with our time, love, career, and education. " -Shakiyah Ivory

Probably the realest female I know. 
 Hands down.

With aspirations of making it in the fashion industry,
 this girl is definitely going places.

Check out her blog which is doing exceptionally well,


&follow her on twitter

She’s amazing.
The End.

You Got Spark, You, You Got Spark
