    Style Warz re-cap 1/26/06
    January's Style Warz Winner:


    The newcomers are coming out the woodwork!!! 2 months in a row first time contestants came through and smashed. Big Ups to you Big Guy. NYC was most def in the building! His man had been calling me all week telling me how nice this dude was. He came up in the spot all unassuming, chilling at the bar until it was time to take his spot on the stage. I was very impressed. I feel like everytime he got the mic, regardless of if he was feeling the beat or not....he did his thang with it. Not sure what it is about the NY swagger, but its very real. Dude had a real presence and a cocky stance that told you he could spit even before he opened his mouth. BRAVO CHAMP! See ya Next Month!

    Style Warz was a lot of fun last night! Thank you to all you fine folk that attended. I didn't really get to talk to many of you...sorry about that! I hope you enjoyed yourselves. People's confidence levels are rising and I see more and more people actually incorporating moves, gestures, mannerisms and facial expressions to their presentatitons. Things are getting really good! I felt like a proud mama last night (i.e. any body got to go potty- what up, Micki ).....all of you [MCs] are really coming along. I see the love that you all show each other (even when you lose) and I see how you all actually get each others math and make plans for the future. The "future"...wow! who would have thought a few years ago that so many people would be looking forward to the future at the same time.
    Big Ups to P-Funk! WOAH! I was loving the beat selections last night. You really did you thang on the 1s and 2s last night- for real! I heard no complaints...except on "Final" beat #2 .....that was crazy. Not sure how either one of those MCs rapped over that one. Big Ups to you, main!
    Thank you EBONY!!! you are the greatest! If anyone needs a reliable person to man the door at your events....Please see Ebony! She is very accountible ............and good help (especially with your $$$$) is hard to find.
    To our very respecful and courteous security!!! WE APPRECIATE YOU!!!
    I want to extend a sincere thanks to our 2 distinguished judges.
    Mr. PX7 a/k/a Easy Tee a/k/a Tee Original LA Dream Team 1980 "PX7" Thank you for the advice and Love. It was a pleasure to have you in the building. Not sure if these youngsters understand the homage that they should pay someone of your stature, but do not take it personally. It is not just rap....the is a total disconnect between today's youth and their forefathers. I appreciate you .....as I am sure many others do. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to come and build with us.
    Torcha of STREETZ Magazine Thank you for coming through with the promo copies of the mag. I am sitting right here looking through the issue with Trey Songz. WOW! The mag has come a long way. Thank you for coming through and checking out the talent and game......NOW????? where is my story at????

Midas (where was the energy you brought last month baby. Last time you made the crowd feel you. Also, it helped that it was a lot of women in the audience. Last night you faced a tougher crowd, but you could have made them feel you....you are gonna have MAKE them feel. Can't always count on a sympathetic crowd. In your defense, I will say that you didn't come to the spot ready to rumble....I convinced you to get in. But come prepared to rock and roll everytime. Also....I know you wanted to rock at the end .....hold on...hold on ) T.M. (he was so cute and nice. Plus dude could spit! I love the lil moves he was making on stage. It was very entertaining) RYU (I love his energy. I swear! he could be the one to do a hip hop/club track and that shit bump. His voice is crazy...like on some jazzy pha shit.

I can't remember you man's name (and the name is so common ), but he gave me the DVD. I appreciate that. I will check it out and give yall a review. Thanks for reaching out and I look forward to working with you in the future. Nick Soprano was in the building as well. Adversary! Not sure what the judges saw, but dude was nice as shit!!!

Thank you for continually supporting this endeavour (in all the ways that you do )....your contribution is felt! Since he capped off the night....Ima end this post with praise for him: VERB Its one thing to say a person can spit off the dome....its another to spit off the top for like 10 mins straight. LOL! 10 mins straight & everyone enjoyed it. Funny thing, Verb asked me for 40 seconds.... he mustof thought I was slow....LOL! That is why I told him to wait until the end....I could tell he was itchin. The need to rap is like a drug for some. I could tell as soon as he started rapping that he was in a zone. The sheer enthusiasm and joy that could be read on his face was magical. THAT IS WHY I DO THIS! For that moment in time...he looked so happy and that seemingly made everyone in the audience happy. That, my friend, is charisma. Verb had heads that were heading to the door ....turning around and coming back...as if there was a surprise act on the card...LOL! that was funny. Thank you for sharing your love for this life. If I think of anyone else ....I will follow up- FO SHO! If I forgot cha...please dont take it personally....I am only human! But i still love ya!

    Fake it til you make it!

    "Fake it til you make it"

    ........all fashion conscious women know this line. I was and never will be one to rock a fake Gucci or prada bag, but I wll rock the hell out of some pink, green , yellow & blue cubic zirconias.

    For many, the aforementioned is not a motto, but rather a lifestyle. But....the rappers of today...take it waaaaaay to far. Many of them are "fakin it" even after they've made it. What is wrong with looking like you are having fun?

    Your boy GAME cannot be serious!!!! LOL!

    Can't get mad @ a mutha 4 keepin it real!!

    Did anyone else notice that everyone stopped talking about voting all together???

    Do you think Hip Hop will be used again during the next big election? I think in many ways hip hop hurt the democrats chance of winning. I think the Christian conservatives are sick of rap and all things "loose" and they came out in the numbers in which they did to make a point. Perhaps...this is a far fetched notion...who knows...LOL! I am such a damn conspiracy theorist.

    First, the NBA makes grown ass men pull up their pants and leave their jewels at home when they go to work......Then they protested when Master P's non dancing ass didnt get voted off of "Dancing With the Stars" .....what the hell is next???? The slippery slope begins...

    Humanity in the music biz: Somthing to think about!
    I hear everyone talk about how "currupt" this biz is...

    & .....I will admit that I have had some rough experiences during my few years on the scene.

    I also hear people say things like, "if one is not strong they should stay out of it",.............. but to me its not that simple.

    Is it that simple to you?

    I know am a strong person [according to my def] and could be percieved as very POWERFUL because I am smart, ........but I don't have all the answers so to me its "frontin" to act better than the next person just because i have the personality to pull it off. But I am sure you know people that do! I know plenty! I admit, I cry....I get stressed and say Im never coming back after every Style Warz....I've jumped the gun....I've opened myself up for criticism..

    ...am I weak for that? Am I missing the clues?? What is the definition of being strong??? How does one grow stronger??? After every setback should one feel like their strength is deminishing? Does self esteem factor into any of this?

    SO many give off this air of confidence and are so prepared to deal with the heartache that comes with this biz....... and compared to them....I think I may not be cut out for RAP!

    I struggle with this. I like a challenge, but fighting a losing battle is not an endeavour I would gladly take on. All I want to do is help spread the good news..... not deal with bullshit and ignorant people that think it makes them seem more official to be a prick.

    I deal with people involved in the industry from all over the world.....there are similar personality traits that they all display, but some of the stuff that you all think is acceptible is not the "norm"--so please stop saying that!

    True, this biz attracts dickheads on a power trip, but that doesn't mean that everyone accepts that. We need to ride for the right shit! If you let people be disrespectful to you in your hometown....they will do it again and others will think that we are cool with that. If bad behavior on the part of person not involved in the struggle was not accepted - you'd be surprised how much respect we'd recieve.

    You have the be the change you want to see in the world- Ghandi

    ^^^^What it means to you..... the "guard" will change one day...life is a cycle....new label heads...new regional directors...new PDs....could be you ...or me even.....

    Stay true to you...never let anyone tell you that you aren't cut out for something because you aren't like everyone else.

    Be ORIGINAL! There is nothing wrong with being a good person in a currupt environment. That is what will make you stand out. This true for rappers who do their own thing, hip hop ambassadors that cry, rugby players in wheelchairs. The blanket descriptions and preconcieved notions that many of us hold on to are what hinder us....feel me or not! holla back!

    Hope you all have a good day!
