Go Shawty, It’s Yo Birthday!

A-T-L Shawty

Hot 107.9 in Atlanta held its 15th annual Birthday Bash this past weekend (June 19) at the Philips Arena. Celebs came through from all over to show love. Ludacris, Plies, Rick Ross, Busta Rhymes, Pastor Troy, Shawty Lo, and closing out the show was Atlanta’s own, Gucci Mane.  The disappointment for the night by far was Ciara’s performance. She has the hottest video out right now, ‘Ride’, featuring Ludacris. The video has been banned from being shown on B.E.T and MTV, so you know it’s on point. Ci Ci’s first single, ‘Goodies’ proved that although she didn’t have the best voice, her dancing could outshine all of that. But she was a fool if she thought she could get by with just sanging.  (Even Janet Jackson ain’t that stupid).  So, she should have taken full advantage when she got the chance to perform ‘Ride’ at the Birthday Bash. Her performance looked like she and Ludacris met up backstage and said ‘Let’s do this’ and just walked on stage and did whatever. It was awful! Here I am all hyped up, and it looked like rehearsal. Ciara, girl you better quit hanging with yo new BFF’s Kim Kardashian and La La and get yo game together before you fall off again. Hopefully she’s saving it for the B.E.T. Awrds. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

What do you think?

No Love For Hov?

Jay-ZTour_Revised

The Jay-Z/Ciara concert at Chastain Park in Atlanta was cancelled Sunday July 12, due to “rain”.  Some say Jay’s private jet wasn’t able to land in the bad weather, other’s say he was at the venue at 9:30 but didn’t perform. The concert promoters, Live Nation were surprised because of poor ticket sales so rumors started that Jay-Z never even showed up. Hov’s been called everything from too old, too corporate and plain washed up. Say what you want but one 16 from Jay-Z will crush some rappers whole CD. Maybe he should have picked another city. People in the South have never been huge Jay-Z fans anyway. Then to top it off his latest single D.O.A. (Death of Auto-tune) is knocking the hustle that’s making Southern rappers like T-Pain and Lil’ Wayne millions. He offended a lot of people, including East Coast rappers like Jim Jones, and Juelz Santana by trying to influence millions of people to stop supporting music where auto-tune is being used. I’m tired of all the songs too, but  instead of Jay-Z and other hip-hop artists trying to bash it, give us some hot music and we wouldn’t have to listen to it.
