300th Post: Summer Re-Cap

With the cold weather moving in far too early, I guess it’s a good time to wrap-up my summer and show you all some of the fun that I’ve been having.  I say it all the time, but I’ll say it again…I think music makes the world go ’round!  I didn’t quite have enough time to go away, but I managed to sneak in some fun when possible.  Between working and sifting through the many thoughts in my head about where I want to live in a year, it was MANDATORY to get in some dancing and friends/family time.  I will preface this re-cap with this statement: I spent time with the people that are nearest and dearest to my heart and people that I knew I could genuinely ENJOY myself with.  That’s so key!  So, if you take nothing else away from this post, remember that there is NO time for drama in this lifetime and so much time for daaaancing (lol)!

Keeping in line with the whole music idea, I was able to see some of my favorite artists this year.  I never posted about this (and I know this is a summer re-cap, but hold tight), but I got the chance to see DAVID GUETTA in concert (I even got media passes to go back stage)!  By far, one of the coolest and most amazing nights I’ve had at a concert.

Fast forward past the Rihanna concert that I went to because I already posted about it right chereeeee!

I made and impulsive decision with my friend Talia and decided to take a road trip to my hometown, Philly, for the Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake Legends of the Summer tour.  It was super duper cool to attend an outdoor concert (since it was arena tour) with thousands of screaming fans.  Check it out!

Had a freaking awesome time and had great seats (winning!)…to top the summer off I spent my Labor Day weekend in Philly again for Jay-Z’s Made in America Festival!  It was SO freaking hot outside, but I saw some great acts including: Solange, Beyoncé, Empire of the Sun, Calvin Harris, Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Khalifa, Dead Mouse and many more!

Meek Mill vs Kendrick Lamar: Is It Beef or Dangerous Waters?

Most people can appreciate a good Hip-Hop rivalry.  With some rappers turning to mainstream styles of music, it’s easy to feel like the Hip-Hop culture isn’t what it used to be.  Then there are rappers who remind everyone that Hip-Hop is still alive and their passion for wanting to be the greatest, turns into true rap beef.  Recently, rapper Kendrick Lamar has been catching some heat for stirring the pot with his “Control” verse that called out some pretty famed artists such as Drake, J. Cole, Wale and Meek Mill, to name a few.  In response, Meek Mill stayed true to his Philly bad boy persona and fired back in his new single, Ooh Kill em:

Man you claiming you the king of New York
What the f–k wrong with you n–ga, step back

Hundred shots, aim straight at your snap cap
Everybody want the crown so I snatch that

Heard your gun go doo-dooo-dooo
Well my gun go blap-blap-blap-blap

What the f–k I gotta whisper to n-ggas
To earn my respect just to get to these n–gas

Go Ether, Takeover or Jigga on n-ggas I really go 2Pac and Biggie on n–gas
What the f-ck wrong with him
Like really I’m sick of you n–gas

You’ve been in the game like a year and some change
And you feeling yourself so I’m killing these n–gas like…

What was Kendrick’s response?  Well, let’s just say he used a recent performance in Brooklyn, NY as his opportunity to set Meek straight:

I been doing this shit for years. I mastered this sh!t.
I have no time for irrelevant n—as [or] new n—as.
There’s one n—a in particular that needs to realize that there’s ‘levels’ to this sh!t.
I’m MOTHER F–KIN’ KING KENDRICK.

The drama spilled over to Twitter and let’s just say…things are heating up.  I hope the beef stays as beef and not violent.  We all know the reality of how wrong things could go.
