Fleet Week is Here!

So i just finished watching a SATC rerun of the “Anchors Away” episode which was on tonight and it reminded me that it is officially the beginning of Fleet Week here in NYC. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Fleet Week, i’ll give you a brief rundown.It began in 1984, specifically to honor those in the U.S Navy and Marine Corps. During this week, there are so many events and public tours where you can visit the ships near the Piers and Harbor. Us ladies love Fleet Week because I mean who doesn’t like seeing a man in uniform 😉 . This week is perfect to check out some of the events that are going on for fleet week since Memorial day is also this weekend and we cant forget the most anticipated and awaited movie of the summer, Sex and the City 2 !! So go out and enjoy all the fun things the Big Apple has to offer, the weather will be beautiful, heard we are expecting temperatures in the 90s. And who knows, you might just find yourself swooned by a sexy Sailor!

Zac Posen for Target

Today is the release of Zac Posen’s collection for Target. As expected, many of the favorite items are sold out online and some Target stores only carry a few pieces. I managed to score the Tuxedo Jacket which Dakota Fanning has been seen wearing, and the Yellow Rain Coat that i thought would be awesome for the Spring Season.  Check out some of the Items at Target.com  or visit your nearest Target store to get some Goods!

RIP Guru

Keith Elam – Guru (July 17, 1961 – April 19, 2010)

Thank you for the music you gave us, Gangstarr will forever be the epitome of Hip Hop.  No more Mr. Nice Guy, Step In the Arena, Daily Operation, Hard To Earn, Moment of Truth, & The Ownerz, speak for itself when you listen to one of the best duos Hip Hop has ever heard. A visionary and emcee with genuine rhymes who had a distinct monotone style, graced us with the Jazzmatazz Volumes that mixed the sounds of Jazz and Hip Hop that had never been done before.  You will always be remembered and cherished in my heart for showing us how beautiful Hip Hop is. Thank you  for being Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal!

Positive Energy for the MC Guru!

Guru to the left, Dj Premier on the Right

Gang Starr MC Guru is currently undergoing surgery after suffering a heart attack and falling into a coma. We need to definitely pray and keep him in our thoughts through this time. He has been a light in the hip hop game since the gecko and his lyrics always had a depth that made him a legend in his name.  I remember when i first began listening to Gang Starr and being intrigued by the vocab he used in his rhymes combined with DJ Premiers dope technique, it completely reinforced my love for hip hop.

Lets keep sending out the love! #prayforGuru

Put it On for Big L – R.I.P

Today marks 11 years since one of the illest emcees to touch the mic was fatally gunned down in his own stomping grounds, Harlem. He was a lyrical genius, a wordsmith who was an expert in punchlines and gritty rhymes, and always came with full delivery. He came on the scene in the 90’s. on Lord Finesses’ B side and then formulated Children of the Corn with fellow Harlem natives Killa Cam, Ma$E, McGruff and Bloodshed. Big L was then signed to Columbia where he debuted his first solo album in 1995, Lifesetylez ov da Poor & Dangerous . Due to its non commercial success, he was dropped from Columbia and not long after Big L created Flamboyant Entertainment. Under his new label, he released his second album The Big Picture and connected with Bronx based collective Diggin’ in the Crates Crew. After his death, Gang Starr released Full Clip, a tribute song to his life.
