Lyrical Interlude

Lyrical Interlude

Purple haze all in my brain

Lately things just don’t seem the same

Actin’ funny, but I don’t know why

‘Scuse me while I kiss the sky

Purple haze all around

Am I happy or in misery

Whatever it is, that girl put a spell on me

Purple haze all in my eyes

Don’t know if it’s day or night

You’ve got me blowin, blowin my mind

Is it tomorrow or just the end of time?

Jimi Hendrix

WTF is this about –  Jimi Hendrix’ estate not wanting to release the rights for his music to appear on the soon to be released biopic?  What the hell are they smoking?  What will a movie about Hendrix be without his music?  Rolling Stone Magazine named him the greatest rock guitarist of all time and he only made 2 albums (yeah albums – remember those) in his short life time.

According to the tabloids, Andre 3000 seems to be perfect for the part of Hendrix.  With bell bottom pants, platform shoes and that historic wild, crazy fro, they could almost be related. It’s been 42 years since Hendrix died and we finally have a chance to bring his music back to life.  Not playing his music is like making a movie about Michael Jordan with no basketball scenes.  That’s just plain f%&*ing dumb.

Will you go see the movie without Jimi’s music?  Highly unlikely.

Motown of the South

A-T-L Shawty

The ATL has a new name, but not so much a new game, “Motown of the South.”  Best known for its sports, strip clubs, crime and Freaknik, Atlanta is being recognized for its hip hop scene.  From new hip hop artists to some old favorites, the ATL is steadily making its contribution to the multibillion dollar industry, including clothing, fragrance brands, businesses, recording studios and top of the charts music, Atlanta has finally come full circle.

Popular hangout spots for hip hop artists include Castleberry Hill district, Club Crucial, Justin’s (Diddy’s spot), and the ever popular Lenox Square.  Lucacris had a party at a store in the mall and T.I. threw a party at Louis Vuitton.

The South is on and popping.
