The LHHATL Reunion Part 1 aired last night. Besides the usual ratchet and ghetto antics of the Atl. crew, two things stuck out to me:
- How much Joseline Hernandez (@MsJoseline) has changed.
2. How disrespectful Lil’ Scrappy (@reallilscrappy) and Erica Dixon (@MsEricaDixon) were towards each other.
Marie Holmes and her winning lottery ticket
Last February when single mom, Marie Holmes won $88 million dollars in the Powerball Lottery. It was a triumph for all black folks and an even a greater victory for single black women all over the world. It was portrayed in the media that Marie was raising her four children alone and one was a special needs child. She said that she would spend her winnings on a new home, her children, and a charity. Well, she must have made a contribution to the “Desperate Women In Need of Men” charity. That’s the only explanation I can come up with as to why Marie Holmes would spend $9 million of her lottery winnings to get her boyfriend/fiancee out of jail.
Florida A & M University’s troubles continue to mount. It’s like a car spinning out of control as the university struggles to save face and regain its place as one of the top HBCUs in the country. James Ammons, President of FAMU, has resigned, effective October 11, 2012 and will become a tenured professor at the university. Should he have resigned when the circumstances surrounding Robert Champion’s death first surfaced? Some say that hazing has been on ongoing issue at FAMU for several years. School administrators were aware of it, but they never did anything about it. As a matter of fact, a few days before the infamous game between Bethune-Cookman University and FAMU, several band members reported that band members were being hazed and a suggestion was made to suspend the band prior to the game. But knowing how we love money and recognition, it was decided that the band would perform as planned. That’s not to say the same incident would not have happened at another time, but maybe Champion would have lived longer than he did. I have no doubt that he would have gone through the same beating he endured prior to his death, just not the night that he died. We may never know the whole story, but what we do know is that Robert Champion, a drum major at Florida A & M University, is dead.

VH1 honored ‘The Dirty South’ Monday night at The Hip-Hop Honors show. If it was honoring hip-hop music from the South, why was it held in New York? I could not get with that lame crowd. The South is called ‘crunk’ for a reason. I’ve seen every Hip-Hop Honors show to date on VH1, and this has to be by far one of the worse. First, the host was Chris Robinson. He is a funny dude and all, but come on when they honored Def Jam last, the host was Tracy Morgan, and his alter ego, Scoopy Giles, was interviewed by Nancy Grace when they promoted the show. They had skits throughout the show with Tracy and they were hilarious.
Even when they interviewed the honorees it was well…….boring. The show started out pretty good but fizzled out like a wet firecracker. I don’t think the Dirty South show was put together or thought out as much as previous shows. To sum up the show, I would have to say it was……….wack.
