Lil Wayne How To Love

I’ve been a Wayne fan for a long time and I must say that I enjoy his  real/sensitive side. Usually he’s saying things like “I might go crazy on these n****’s I dont give a motherf*** Run up in a n**** house and shoot his grandmother up, what” lol. But on how to love he’s speaking about compassionate things that make you think about how to really love. This video is juicy to me, but what do ya’ll think Juicy or Dry? {Carter 4 coming soon!}

Food Stamp Nation

I was browsing the web when I fell across an article on yahoo via Reuters by Kristina Cooke entitled, “USA becomes Food Stamp Nation but is it sustainable?” While her focus was on the growing concern of how in the world can the gov’t afford to fund this program with the current state of the economy, I was stuck on the fact we’re becoming a food stamp nation. Many of us know someone on food stamps or use to be. Just as many aspects of life society has this distorted image of the people reaping the benefits of the program. One being the young single black mother of 5 in flower flip flops, old dry weave, and tats all over. Sadly, this is true for some but if you’re like me you’re more likely to know the crowd of hungry college students in Wal-Mart swiping that good ol card. Maybe the gov’t doesn’t do a good job at screening its applicants or the unemployment rates are taking their tolls but for whatever reason behind this new “food stamp nation” the article had some shocking facts that can’t be overlooked ….

  1. 46 MILLION PEOPLE (15%) are currently on food stamps in the USA
  2. 74% increase of people on food stamps since 2007

How much is this costing the USA? 68 BILLION In 2010 to be exact! We have to do something! Yes there are those people who are abusing the program and “milking” us for what it’s worth but what about those individuals really trying to do better and are just stuck? What can people as an individual and we as a nation do to climb the social ladder and minimize the use of this program?

Is Money Needed to Have a Successful Relationship?

Out of 100%, what percent of that is based on finances when it comes to having a successful relationship? I hear a lot of men say that finances should not be a priority in a relationship, while a majority of women are quick to say, “Love don’t pay no BILL’s”. However, it is my belief that financial stability from both partners plays an elite role when it comes to having a successful relationship. I also feel that those who say having money is not an essential part of a relationship, have the word relationship confused with the antonym, “LAYING UP”…Because that’s all both parties will do if there are no funds circulating. What yall think?


To Lurk or not to lurk? That is the question

Okay readers this topic is a huge controversy. Should people go through their mate’s phone? I personally believe that there is no way you should go through your mate’s phone. Where is the trust? Lurking through their phone makes you insecure right? Well I must admit I am GUILTY! I looked through my x-boyfriends phone before. My intent was only to use the phone because my phone was broken at the time, but then I became curious. The infamous quote written by Eugene O’Neil is “curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought it back.” My heart shattered when I found things in his phone that I didn’t expect to see. There were photos of other women, dirty text messages, and more dirty texts! Eventually I was satisfied and glad that I now knew the truth about my man because I honestly didn’t know that it was like that. But it shouldn’t have taken all of that for me to find out the truth. I would rather have him tell me that he was cheating than for me to find out that way. If I have any doubts in the future even the slightest doubt I will trust my impulses. The hurt that I felt from looking in the phone was so painful that I never want to feel that again. I asked Team Flavor to help me distinguish some pros and cons towards searching through a phone but we came up with more cons than pros.

+ (If they are cheating you will now know for sure)

– (If you get caught lurking and their innocent, they will not trust you)

+ (searching through their phone will reveal their true self)

– (Lurking will get addicting,)

– (now your partner has ground to search your phone)

– (they will keep throwing it in your face when in the middle of an argument)

– (you will be labeled as insecure)

I’ve learned from my past and after reviewing the pros and cons list I don’t want to lurk through another phone. I’m going to trust my intuitions and be aware of any red flags that may occur throughout the relationship. Most likely when you feel like something is not right you are correct.

Some obvious red flags that your mate is talking to others are

  • Flips the phone over after texting and  receiving text messages
  • Takes the phone everywhere with them, even to the bathroom
  • Flips out if you slightly touch their phone

Okay readers what do you choose? To lurk or not to lurk? Choose your destiny!

Dread Interview

 Juicy Peach: Explain your love for music?

Dread: Music is so powerful. Almost bigger than religion. A classic will be played 100 years from now and the feelings will still be there.

Juicy Peach: When did you first decide to become an artist?

Dread: Probably 11th grade of high school in La, I was in this rap group called gooniez. We did local talent shows and after a year we all decided to go solo.

Juicy Peach: Are you still cool with the members?

Dread: Yeah some of them.

Juicy Peach: How did you come up with your name?

Dread: I looked up the definition of dread and it said to be cautious of someone. It fits me with my music. To dread me is to know that my music goes hard. It has a double meaning. Many people only assume my name comes from my hair.

Juicy Peach: What are your music goals for 2011?

Dread: For 2011 I plan to drop 5 music videos. Big videos. I plan to release crayons my new mixtape September 11, at least that’s the plan. I want to start tour in December. My biggest goal is to be on xxl top 10 freshmen. Everything is planning out how I wanted it to.

Juicy Peach: What can you bring to the music industry?

Dread: Money will never get into the creativity of my music. A lot of people creativity and music is influenced by money. When money starts to get into the way of your music things will start to go wrong. I will never at one point put money into the creativity of my music. I will always talk to my fans like I’m normal. Cause I am normal. The only difference between me and my fans is that I’m on TV. I told my mom when I get on I want her to be in charge of my finances. I don’t want her to tell me how much I have. I just want to know that we’re good.

Juicy Peach: Who is your favorite artist?

Dread: As far as creativity I mess with two people and that’s kid cuddi and kanye west.

Juicy Peach: What artist would you like to work with most?

Dread: The first person I would like to work with is Jill Scott as far as a dude goes I will work with Wale.

Juicy Peach: Who is flight league? How did that begin?

Dread: Sophomore year at JSU I needed to create a team of people that was self made, a team where we didn’t have to hit up other people to get photo shoots, graphics, or beats. I wanted to show young people like me that there is talent out there. Flight League is the reason why I came this far. When I get on the labels can’t tell me shit. I have my own team. Really, labels want to see that. I have a producer, photographer, graphic designer, and other artists that I’m trying to come out with. 70 percent of flight league is from Chicago.

Juicy Peach: I know that you are focused but explain your love life. Are you single? In a relationship?

Dread: Well I’m single right now Jackson doesn’t really give you a big choice. The  reason why I’m single and so focused is because when I get on the real test to find love will begin. I’m looking forward to the challenge of peeping out whose real and who’s fake. And who will love me generally or who’s looking for the money. Lol I want to see if I can handle it.

Juicy Peach: If you could be any color crayon out of the 24 box what color would it be?

Dread: I would be black because black defines the lines. It’s such a strong color, nothing can overpower black

After this intriguing interview Dread blessed me with a sneak peek of his new song titled unfaithful. Unfaithful is not released yet but will be when it is ready.
