The Ladies (& Gents) of the 'Garden of Peaches and Shade' are back after a BRIEF HIATUS! The housewives take the drama to Cozumel! But before that, Marlo Hampton gets a bit more screen time, with Kenya, revealing that NeNe ALLEGEDLY told her to pick a team, Team Rich or Team Twirl! If she was hanging with Kenya, then there was no HANGING with her! Sounds like 5th grade, right. At any rate, the clan head to Mexico with Miss Lawrence in tow. Seems Kenya can't make any moves without her good GAY friends. I guess Brandon wasn't available....
Taking a page from NeNe's 'Pillow Fight Talk', Kenya plans a trip and STIRS the pot EARLY! ANd EARLY, Kenya ARRIVES in Mexico a day before the couples to 'make sure everything is on point.' Who Doesn't want a GIFT BAG with a photo of Kenya in a BIKINI!? Peter becomes Wendy Williams on this episode, stirring a little pot of his own--meeting with Kordell and interrogating Porsha. But tempers flare when the tables are turns over on Porsha. Almost everyone seemed to want a piece of her and Kordell's BUSINESS, with Kenya and Peter being the aggressors. So was Porsha a BEARD for Kordell or was there any real LOVE there?? Check out the EPISODE...
Everyone's FAVORITE, MOST KEEPIN' IT REAL,'HOUSEWIFE', Kandi Burruss graces the latest edition of 'Jet' Mag! The photos were done by celebrity photog, Derek Blanks and hair by none other than Derek J!
In the mag, Kandi answers the question, can black women have it ALL? Career, family, and marriage and at what COST!?
Since we are CELEBRATING the LIFE and TIMES of The Notorious B.I.G., the Sunday Energy Shot HAS to REPRESENT for arguably one of the GREATEST LYRICISTS to ever to it!
SOME people forget that although the track interpolates Diana Ross' hit 'Im Coming Out', it is actually Kelly Price singing the HOOK. ALSO.... 'Love & Hip Hop ATL's bad boy, Stevie J was one of the producers of this MONSTER HIT!
The legacy of Notorious lives on today.
Wallace mostly rapped on his songs in a deep tone described by Rolling Stone as a "thick, jaunty grumble", which went deeper on Life After Death. He was often accompanied on songs with ad libs from Sean "Puffy" Combs. On The Source's Unsigned Hype, they described his style as "cool, nasal, and filtered, to bless his own material".
Allmusic describe Wallace as having "a loose, easy flow" with "a talent for piling multiple rhymes on top of one another in quick succession". Time magazine wrote Wallace rapped with an ability to "make multi-syllabic rhymes sound... smooth", while Krims describes Wallace's rhythmic style as "effusive". Before starting a verse, Wallace sometimes used onomatopoeic vocables to "warm up" (for example "uhhh" at the beginning of "Hypnotize" and "Big Poppa" and "what" after certain rhymes in songs such as "My Downfall").
On Life After Death, Wallace's lyrics went "deeper". Krims explains how upbeat, dance-oriented tracks (which featured less heavily on his debut) alternate with "reality rap" songs on the record and suggests that he was "going pimp" through some of the lyrical topics of the former. XXL magazine wrote that Wallace "revamped his image" through the portrayal of himself between the albums, going from "midlevel hustler" on his debut to "drug lord".
Allmusic wrote that the success of Ready to Die is "mostly due to Wallace's skill as a storyteller"; In 1994, Rolling Stone described Wallace's ability in this technique as painting "a sonic picture so vibrant that you're transported right to the scene". On Life After Death Wallace notably demonstrated this skill on "I Got a Story to Tell" telling a story as a rap for the first half of the song and then as a story "for his boys" in conversation form.
BIGGIE HITS after the JUMP!
