Being as though Juicy is one of my favorite Biggie tracks, I’m not sure if I can handle another remix to the original Mtume song. However, Tamar is trying her hand. I’m not sure how I feel about it, only because “Love and War” has become one of my favorite songs of the year and she pretty much has to outdo herself. Let me know what you think!
It seems like we lose someone from the celebrity world every day now and it’s never an easy pill to swallow. Of course, I was in the midst of the hype when hip-hop duo, Kriss Kross, had kids wearing their clothes backwards; I was a youngster when they blew up, so this is surreal. Sadly, Chris Kelly (on the left) passed away in his Atlanta home yesterday at the age of 34. The cause of death is still unknown, but an autopsy will be performed this week. Prayers go out to his family during this difficult time of mourning; may he forever Rest In Peace.

Some people are chattering about Beyonce and Andre 3000 covering Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black” for the much anticipated “Gatsby” film. Surprisingly, I like the song and I especially like Beyonce’s part. Check the song out (try to ignore the radio promo in the background) and the official trailer for “The Great Gatsby”.
He may be trying to spark some interest for his upcoming project, but whatever the reason, I’m loving this montage of “gifted” individuals that Wale highlights. It’s about time that artists start encouraging others to follow their dreams and also start realizing their own God-given potential. Check out Episode 1 of “The Gifted”:
