    If you are a Dog : A very loyal and sweet person.Your loyalty can never be doubted. You are quite honest and sincere when it comes to your attitude towards working. You are a very simple person, indeed. Absolutely hassle free, humble and down-to-earth!! That explains the reason why your friends cling on to you! You have a good taste for clothes. If your wardrobe is not updated with what is trendy, you sure are depressed. Popular and easy-going. You have a little group of dignified friends,all of them being quality-personified.
    If you are a Mouse : Always up to some sort of a mischief! The mischievous gleam in your eyes is what makes you so cute and attractive to everyone. You are an extremely fun-to-be-with kind of person. No wonder, people seek for your company and look forward to include you for all get-togethers. However, you are sensitive, which is a drawback. People need to select their words while talking to you. If someone tries to fiddle around and play with words while dealing with you, it is enough to invite your wrath. God bless the person then!
    If you are a Lion: Quite contradictory to your name, you are a peace loving person. You best try to avoid a situation wherein you are required to fight. An outdoor person, you dislike sitting at one place for a long duration. You are a born leader, and have it in you how to tactfully derive work from people. You love being loved, and when you receive your share of limelight from someone, you are all theirs!!!! Well, well... hence some people could even take an advantage, flatter you to the maximum and get their work done. So be careful.....
    If you are a Cat : An extremely lovable, adorable person, sometimes shy,with a passion for quick wit. At times, you prefer quietness. You love exploring various things and going into depth of each thing. Under normal circumstances you're cool, when given a reason to, you are like a volcano waiting to erupt. You're a fashion bird. People look forward to you as an icon associated with fashion. Basically, you mingle along freely but don't like talking much to strangers. People feel very easy in your company. You observe care in choosing your friends.
    If you are a Turtle : You are near to perfect and nice at heart.The examples of your kindness are always circulated in groups of people.You, too, love peace. You wouldn't like to retaliate even to a person who is in the wrong. You are loved due to this. You do not wish to talk behind one's back. People love the way you always treat them. You can give, give and give love, and the best part is that you do not expect it back in return.You are generous enough.Seeing things in a practical light is what remains the best trait of you guys.
    If you are a Dove : You symbolize a very happy-go-lucky approach in life.Whatever the surroundings may be, grim or cheerful, you remain unaffected.In fact, you spread cheer wherever you go. You are the leader of your group of friends and good at consoling people in their times of need. You dislike hypocrisy and tend to shirk away from hypocrites. They can never be in your good books, no matter what. You are very methodical and organized in your work. No amount of mess, hence, can ever encompass you. Beware, it is easy for you to fall in love.... ?
    If you are a Panther : You are mysterious. You are someone who can handle pressure with ease, and can handle any atmosphere without going berserk.You can be mean at times, and love to gossip with your selected group.Very prim and proper. You like all situations and things to be in the way you desire, which, sometimes is not possible. As a result, you may lose out in some relationships. But otherwise, you love to help people out from difficult and tight spots when they really need you.
    If you are a Monkey : Very impatient and hyper!!! You want things to be done as quick as possible. At heart, you are quite simple and love if you are the center of attraction. That way, you people are unique. You would like to keep yourself safe from all the angles. Shall your name be dragged or featured in any sort of a controversy, you then go all panicky. herefore, you take your precautions from the very beginning. When you foresee anything wrong, your sixth sense is what saves you from falling in traps. Quite a money minded bunch you people are!! check me out on

    Organic Soul 7.11.06
    I've been having a crazy week. I had to work 11-7 Wednesday night and whenever I do ..... it totally messes up my whole week. I slept all day yesterday. I still don't feel refreshed, but things are starting to return to usual. I do apologize to those of you that checked in yesterday and found that I'd added no NEW news....but like they always say....sometimes NO News is Ghood NEWS!-- Feel me!??!

    I've been corresponding with Lionel Lyles of the Lionel Lyles Quartet for some times now. I am a huge fan of jazz (& have been forever!!!) and his band is one of the best our city has to offer. It just seems like Thursdays have become the busiest days of the week for me.....& for whatever reason I keep missing their weekly jam session at Cobber's Pub (Charles & Preston Streets). I made a promise that I would come through this week (I didn't make it...LOL!)
    ..... I hate that! I'm really not a liar. MY BAD!!! The events begins at 8 ( I think).....my session started at 7 (which really didn't start until 8:30 PM...LOL!).....then After spending 4 + hours in the studio yesterday....and still needing to run by the 5 Seasons to give out flyers (BIG UP BEKATAINMENT!!!)..needless to say! There was no way I could be everywhere I ought to be!
    ............ Soooooo join me yall......next Thursday at Cobber's...first drink on me!!!
    .....drink of water that is....LOL~ sike nah! come get a sip and bite and listen to some good music! I will follow up with all the details in a few days!
    in the meantime.......ENJOY!!!
    Its just so happen that some of the members of the quartet were playing at the Organic Soul Birtday party. I captured these pics (below) as they accompanied Che Ray during a set that had us in that joint partying. That's lionel with the horn. Anybody that has never visited Organic Soul........you are missing out on a real gem. Hosted by my fellow Aquarian, Olu Butterfli, every Tuesday from 8-11PM.....ANYONE LITERALLY....is liable to come through! Expect a GREAT show everytime! ..........& for 5 bucks (& its BYOB!)....you can't go wrong! Live band, sang-uuurs, poets, MCs, refreshments, vendors and more!

    A man with a horn makes me weak in my knees!

Since then, she's been on stage with hardcore gangsta MCs and Kanye West - impressing audiences & DJs alike with smooth, pillowy singing that has a slight edge to it." - quote and photo courtesy of realnewyorkersknow

    Company announces the launch of an online version (BETUNCUT.net)

    New York, NY, July 9, 2006: This past Saturday marked the end of an era in late night television. In the early hours of July 8th 2006, BET pulled the plug on one of its most popular and controversial shows BET: UNCUT.

    As the statement at the beginning of the show warned: UNCUT was created specifically for mature audiences. This show which aired Thursday - Saturday, 3:00 – 4:00 a.m. (ET/PT) offered uncensored, explicit versions of videos from artist like Nelly, 50 Cents and Snoop Dogg that could never be aired during normal BET viewing hours.

    Although UNCUT has become the anchor of BET’s late night programming, pressures to make the network more family oriented has forced the company to go in a different direction.

    Uncut fans will not need to mourn for long though. To fill the void created by the cancellation of the show, V-News Group has announced the launch of an online version of the uncensored classic: www.BETuncut.net.

    BETuncut.net will be a free site which features hundreds of uncut videos, many of which have never been seen on network television, as well as interviews with featured artist and video models.

    For more information or video submission please contact:info@betuncut.net

    SOHH.com "My Spot" features Baltimore, MD

    Name: E.S.Q. Locution
    Favorite Spot: The Harbor
    Reppin: Baltimore, MD

    I live in Baltimore, MD, where it's real grimmey & gritty. Only spot I really dig is The Harbor. It's always tons of honey's down there, its right across from the Gallery Mall, and In the summer they have all kinds of festivals. The Harbor is my spot to chill, but I also go to the Chinese Express on 33rd & Greenmount for the bomb ass Hot Wings. Some of they Chinese food is good too, but the Hot Wings are slamming.
    Posted by Aali123 at July 5, 2006 11:26 AM
    Please read the people's comments....LOL!
    he said the Harbor??? WOW! I ain't mad at him tho! I am so mad I've been sleepin on this one. I've had it on my "to do" list for ever. Anybody know this guy????
    Kelly, did you take this pic?....you don't have to be humble.

    Mixx Mondays @ the Good Love Bar
    Not sure if you've ever been to the Good Love Bar, but the spot is very cool. Located on Boston Street in Caton, the vibe of the spot is very modern and cosmopolitan. Very mellow and dimly lit, it is the perfect spot for a couple to go together. I went there on 7.3.06 for the special pre-4th of July party and had a ball. The spot was packed (people were willing to pay $20 at 1:30 AM to get in the door) thanks in part to the fact that Lil Mic was dj-ing. I ran into so many people....it proved to be a great networking experience.
    Mixx Mondays goes down every Monday Night (9-2 AM). I definitely reccomend this spot to adults looking for a relaxed place to go on a Monday night...drinks are reasonable...sexy people are in abundance and the music is groovy -- very jazzy, old school, dirty house, soul with a splash of new school here and there. I am not sure about the admission cost($10 or less 4 sure), but you can get you a great martini (no french tho) for $4 - you can't beat that.
    Tuesday is Organic Soul's 5 Year Anniversary! Congrats to the entire black out studios family. This will be a celebration you don't want to miss. The night will include performances from several OS All-stars including Brown F.I.S.H, Ab Rock and J- Soul (The J-Rock Project). I'm going to be out in the streets (@ "EVERYTHING") this whole week...promoting and toasting.....so get at me if you want to get advance tickets for the show on the 26th.

    One of my favorite stores and biggest supporter of the Baltimore Hip Hop movement is SAMOS. Owned and operated by Ty and Fred, SAMOS offers totally original designs for the fashion conscious man or woman. Co-owner Ty, a graphic designer by trade, creates designs that really set them apart from everyone else out here tryna make their mark in the very lucrative and highly competitve urban clothing industry.
    They sell a few items for women but their main focus is on the male consumer. I have been a fan of theirs for a min. (at least '99 - their first store was in the basement of the building that housed my girlfriend Margaret's nail salon) and they have never ceased to amaze me with their ability to stay ahead of the game. They are constanly evolving. What started off as iron-on designs on T-shirts and sweats has morphed into a whole line that includes denim, jackets, book bags and acessories.
    I never realized how particular men can be about their clothes until I spent a day in the store. Some men are FAR worse than women. "what color shoes should i get"...."can I wear that shirt with these shorts instead of theones you have them matched up with"...."last week I bought the green shorts with the white and black stripes...you think you could get the tailor to add a yellow stripe so it will match my Rhasta airs"...LOL!
    The original SAMOS store was located near the corners of Reisterstown and Gwynns Falls......TODAY they can boast about 2 locations (WEST - North Ave and Druid Hill and EAST - North and Gay) with plans to expand even more in the near future (Website coming soon!!!). Several local celebs are proud endorsers of the SAMOS brand.....in particular, DJ QuickSilva (pictured - grey. He is always FRESHLY DIPPED!), Dirty Hartz and Q (pictured - brown). If you are ever in town and needs something stylish and comfortable to wear....DEF stop by SAMOS & tell them I sent ya!
    Skarr Akbar is droppin a new DVD soon that will follow up the widely acclaimed, Stephan Tatum Story ( Documentary), that was featured in several film festivals last year. They wanted to capture a lil footage of what I think about Skarr and the Batimore movement. I picked the SAMOS EAST store for the camera guys to meet me (come to find out it was Ryan and SL Danga - R.A.R.E. Ent & Yung Hustlas. NOW, that's what I call multi-tasking). For me....this ended up being another example of how God is in total control of everything I am involved in. I wanted my peoples get a lil shine for their new store, but come to find out ppl in the store knew Skarr (on a personal level - like have watched him grow up)...so they were able to add sooooo much to it....much more than I ever imagined. This was a great day!!!! This segment is gonna be nice. I am sure the whole DVD is going to turn out great! Skarr is a real interesting character. Stay tuned ....I'll let yall know when it officially drops! Below are a few pics I took that day....inventory changes regularly...so stop by often to see what's poppin. Usually when a new sneaker comes out...they have an outfit to match. THEY WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU!!!!

    Also....next door to the EAST location is a store that sells mixtapes & they carry local music.
    mmmmmmmmmmmmmmh...check out who's on their J-O-B!
    Dude prolly thought i was the FEDS...LOL! He looked at me like he wanted to snatch my camera away.....I had to explain to him that I just wanted the pic for my blog!!! If you are reading this....SEE!!! mwah!
