Before Tameka & The Lil U-rshers

Boiiiiii!! Do I miss the Usher that used to take off his shirt and grind on the microphone stand while sweating perfusley! Prior to him making babies and bumping ugly’s with someone’s great auntie, Usher used to be a young curly haired Thunder Cat with a face full of dimples. Let us also reflect on when knowing how to dance (& box braids) was once a requirement to be in a video. Take notice at Usher’s “boo” in this video….yes, that is “Kisha” BKA Taral Hicks that co-starred in Belly alongside DMX. Close your eyes and listen to the smoove grooves of Usher….B.T(Before Tameka).

*Side Note* If you aren’t already a proud owner of it….please go out and purchase Usher’s first album “Usher”. He’s talking a bit nasty for a (at-the-time) 14 year old teenager on this album but I believe that it is rather good.

If I had one WISH....

You would sit your bee-lack a*s down!!! When will these celebrities realize you CAN'T find true love on television. I guess its safe to say that "Cocktail" has evaporated cuz Brandy's brother is back at again. He's looking for some "Sexy Ladies"!! VH1 has a announced Season 2 of For the Love of Ray J.... Ummmmm I just don't see it! Ray J is a cutie and I always had a slight crush on him but these shows where people are trying to find life long partners aren't realistic...and it AIN'T gon happen, not now, not NEVA!!!

Now I'm not reporting this as "BREAKING NEWS" I just wanted to chime in and put my two cents in if you will! For those of us NOT living under a rock..we all know that Usher and Tameka are NO LONGER an item. I think I speak for 99.9% of the people when I say I'm not the least bit surprised. His fine ass ain't have no business with Tameka Foster old ass (in the words of B. Scott) GUTTER BUTT TROLLOP! I mean she isn't even cute..her face is all hard and masculine looking..she got the head of a lion and the mane of one two..nappy head hoe! AAARRGGGHH...if Mr. Raymond wanted an old hoe he shoulda just stayed with Chilli! Quiet as kept I was hatin' and throwin' shade on this so call union from jump because anybody who knows me know Usher is my future baby daddy..and he just had to go and breed not 1 but 2 with this (_zzz_)* tramp! *

Feeling the Love: Song of the Week (Throwback)



Ooooh! C'mon hits! I used to love this song! Although Tatyana's baby pony's were all but dreadful, the tune was catchy and I always knew she could sing (or at least after that one episode on Fresh Prince where she went INN at the Peacock)!

Recession: Album sales aren't SPECTACULAR anymore!



I told ya'll this RECESSION was REAL! Hell, I just heard Ciara was sellin' "CAB RIDE" "Fanstasy Ride" LPs in the back of a KGC (formerly known as KFC) while opening for Britney Spears tour! 


Kenzo Lee Honsou

Yay! My first cousin Kimora and her man DJ (cause the rest of his name is a smoove fool wit' it) welcomed their first child together, a baby boy, at an L.A. Hospital on Sat, May 30. His name, titled above, was inspired by the famous Japanese fashion designer Kenzo Takada. I, for one, am elated. As shallow as this may sound, I love Blasian kids! They are truly going to make the world a more beautiful place and replace the Blatino race that is trying to emerge as a new race! I mean look at Ming Lee and Ayoki (my heart, the two cutest lil' girls), these two are gonna be true heart breakers when they grew up! Vanessa and Angela who??? RIIIGGGHHT!

How 'bout a Round of Applause...

Turns THE HELL out that the whole Em/Bruno production at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards this past Sunday night was STAGED! Em says that he was approached by Bruno, while in Europe, to do something crazy and wacky at the award show and Em, being a big fan of Bruno's work, agreed with no hesitation. I'm not sure if this was a publicity stunt for Bruno or Eminem, but I will say that this was all anyone was talking about for at least that Monday morning (In the afternoon, everyone thought Eminem was LAME all over again)! Well I will give them a slight clap cause Em sure fooled me!

Hey, I know I'm late in posting this video up! But whatever, Rihanna is f*cking ART and it's always a Kanye SET! Holla...

I've Decided

Ummmmmm....Instead of walking the streets of WeHo (West Hollywood), maybe the Simmons sisters should be somewhere working on some new colorways for their new line of Pop-Tarts,Strudels,Doughnuts Pastries; you know, some colors that actually match with sh*t that people wear or I don't know, some colors that coincide with the season??

Is it WORTH it, lemme WORK it...

   As I was watching the news this morning, I caught the end of a story involving two American journalists that were being detained by the North  Korean authorities for "illegally intruding" on the Communist's nation's soil around the China/North Korean border. 
   At first glance, I immediately thought of OPRAH! Ling was the name mentioned and I was like hell naw, KK, they got Oprah's girl! Now what in the hell is Oprah's @ss doing about this! This story really bothered me because I have always heard horror stories about how people are treated overseas when captured and I felt like that may be the end of Lisa Ling.
   After doing some research, I found out that the Ling I was worried about was not the notable Oprah show correspondent Lisa Ling but rather her sister, Laura Ling! Still important right?? Ok, I'll go on! Press officers for the U.S. State Department are supposedly working with Chinese officials to find out the whereabouts of the two American journalists and express concern. Now while I thought that this was a big deal and was all types of concerned, they interviewed Daddy Ling and his thoughts were a bit different from mine. "I worry quite a bit but I'm not losing any sleep over it," he told KCRA television in Sacramento. He says before his daughter left, he saw and spoke to her and she assured him that it was a very routine assignment to the North Korean-Chinese border to do a report on refugees. Ling says that he's become used to his daughters adventurous careers and is  "more or less used to it." We sent Lisa Ling a Blackberry Message (and she read it) but she never responded to us (slore) so we paid it! We will continue to keep Laura and Journalist #2 in our thoughts and prayers, but like Father Ling won't be losing ANY and SLEEP over it! Live from the News Desk (dramatic pause) KK REPORTS!

SONG OF THE DAY (Throwback)


You couldn't tell me NAY-THAN when this song/video came out! Missy, Timbaland, Magoo and Aaliyah (and sometimes Ginuwine) were a effing DYNASTY! Between this union, music was at a great place! I miss those days! And watching this video makes me miss Aaliyah even more because she was coming up on her brink here!

"Please please Bru Brother, don't slam my car doe..It costs too much money to get that shit fixed, I need all my money to pay all my bills wit..."

STADIUM MUSIC, Soccer Field Budget!



        Bad Boy Records has released the second video from Day26's sophomore release entitled STADIUM MUSIC! While the video and concept seem to have been on the left side of the Bad Boy budget, the guys personal opinions of the video is the root of the problem. Now, let's take a second to remember the economic crisis we are in! Ain't nobody really buying CDs anymore and with Day26 only coming in a little over 100k sold the first week, it would seem as though they have little to say about their project. But according to the Twitter pages of Que, Willie and Robert (my favorite vocalist of the group), the guys seem to not like the video and would have preferred to have input. My question to them is: Where you all ready to put down some more money to make your vision happy? Exactly; see what happens is that these groups forget who is in charge...P.Smickle! That's right and that H.N.I.C. can do whatever it is that he pleases!

        Clearly Diddy decided that the video was not worth all those damn theatrics and such and just went with a simple, basic concept to get the video/song back out there and keep the LP "Forever in a Day" relevant. This is what I be talkin' about people! Beyonce has the game going MAD! This skank,whore,slut,Diva...terms of endearmentwoman comes out with a myriad of simple ass 1,2 step videos that prolly cost her a smooth $49.99 and has the internet and fans going CRAZY! But everyone can't be like Bey! So until Que and Dawn can scrape up their pennies and Will can hold some back from his barber for that edge up (Horrendous) and Robert can get the regular Winn-Dixie brand relaxer instead of Dark & Lovely, then they will just have to go along with what Diddy says! But airing your frustrations over Twitter about how you don't really like the video isn't going to make your fans like it even more! Where is their PR team because they are actually digging their grave right next to a certain all-girl band that was disassembled as of late! Question: Do do you have a FIRST AID KIT HANDY?

M&M Plain with NUTS!


It gets no better! Apparently, the camp over at Eminem's record label has released a statement regarding the situation that happened last night! In case you aren't up to the date in important news from MTV, yeah right at last nights MTV Movie Awards, British comedian Sacha Cohen got into his alter-ego BRUNO and in his attempt to fly to the stage, landed smack dab in the middle of Eminem! LMAO...the sh*t was funny but what made it even greater was the fact that, supposedly, Eminem wasn't in on the joke and was seemingly very perturbed by it! Em and his entourage exited stage left and never returned! LOL! I thought it was brilliant for Em's up-tight, suicidal @ss! You be the judge after you watch it and let us know what you think!

iPhone HOME!


With a new Social-networking site popping up every other week and my slue of business ventures that I juggle simultaneously, I have to have a mobile/cellular device that can keep up! But being the person that I am, I always want the latest and greatest (hence my BB Curve)! With this phone, I can reach any and everyone via any and every way! But, I'm bored! While the BB is a great phone and it seems like most business-savvy like minded individuals have one, I want something new! iPhone: This is just not going to work for me because me and touch screen just don't get along like that! I left the TREO series for this reason! While friends of mine who own Ms. 3G say that it doesn't give that problem, I'm not a fan of not having a Qwerty (full-press-able) keyboard! And AT&T and my pocket NEVER came to an agreement!
Instinct: Umm..If Im going to get a top of the line touchscreen, it would be an iPhone duh! So sorry Instinct, you just lost for being a biter! 

Is there really any other competition? I will say that I do like the BB BOLD (pictured below)by AT&T because I have played with it and it's nice ! So I guess what I'm really asking for is for SPRINT to step their game up and give me some options! 

Remember when their used to be like a new cell phone every other week that came out and you HAD to have it?? Have we reached the top??? Is there no where else to go from here?? Feedback KK, FEEDBACK!

Usually I'm HUMBLED, right now I don't CHOOSE...


Beyonce has released her fifth video EGO from her 3rd studio LP entitled "I AM...Sasha Fierce" on the brink of one of the largest vacationed holidays in the U.S. (Memorial Day Weekend). In my opinion, Bey knows exactly what she is doing! Over are the days of extremely costly video sets and over the top THRILLS! Bey has captured and catered to her largest fanbase "the kids" and is simply giving them dance lessons via her videos! Makes sense, it's Marketing 101: Target Segments! Don't believe me? Remember the hype surrounding the SINGLE LADIES video? All of the YouTube response videos immitating Beyonce and her moves? Well, this is just another way to showcase her talent while still keeping her fans at the heart of her work! Brilliance at it's best!

It pays to be a SUPERSTAR: Now that's ILLY!

Rapper T.I., as you know, was sentenced to approximately a year-and-one-day prison sentence after pleading guilty in March to federal weapons charges in Atlanta. Well, it seem as though Harris will be credited for 305 days of home detention that he already has served after being charged, so his stay at the Forrest City prison likely will be only two months. According to court filings, T.I. has to report to the court no later than noon on May 26Th! HOW U LIKE THAT???

Intro Intro Introducing:: She by Sheree

Despite all the rumors about Mrs. Sheree Whitfield robbing Peter to pay Paul she was able to debut her fashion line titled: "She" !! During season one of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" she tried to debut her signature line but instead of going the professional route she let "Bonkeisha" sew her garments; and she ended up with a "fashion show with no fashions" <----Classic line from Dwight Eubanks!!

On her big night Sheree received support from fellow cast mates as well as some of the ATL's elite such as: Kandi Burruss (formerly of Xscape), Angie Stone, and Bobby Valentino; just to name a few. Ms. "I need 7 figures" looked stunning in her turquoise strapless dress with gold and hot pink sandals. But that nappy a*s ponytail was straight out of the wardrobe archives of the movie "ROOTS"!! Aside from that I can honestly say I like the look of her line. She has some couture pieces as well as your everyday chilling on Peachtree St. gear!
Take a look at what She by Sheree is giving. I wish her much success and hopefully this lines pops off Worldwide and not only in the "A"!

Must Read:: Choose Me

Bless me KK for I have sinned; its been a few days since my last confession. It took me forever and a day to read "Choose Me" by Xenia Ruiz...it was sitting on my shelf collecting dust. I had to put my Swifter to work just to read the darn thing!! N T Who...this book is very inspirational and uplifting. Since I'm in a confessing mood I must also add I wasn't to pressed to read it because it talks a lot about religion and the main character "Eva" is celibate. Two things that are not a consistent effort in my life!

From the inside cover: Two people. Two voices. Two unforgettable walks along life's most difficult roads. And two hearts struggling to understand God's divine plane--and the blessing of love...

Eva: "I've survived Mr. Not-Right, Mr. All-Wrong, and Mr. No-Way. I've had one bad marriage and had to raise my sons on my own. It took me a long time to learn how to be independent and find out who I was. I became celibate to clear my head and to get back to what I thought God would want me to do with my life. And I was through with romance unless I found a good Christian man (and I wasn't gong to count on that happening any time soon...if ever). But I didn't expect someone like Adam, a social worker committed to the community and spreading the Word through his poetry. He's also a man struggling with an illness that almost killed him and shook his faith. And he is challenging me in ways inspiring and tempting--and I pray to God that I will have enough strength to find a way for us..."

Adam: "I'll admit it, I had let my Christian walk slide. No, let's be honest --I found my faith was not where it used to be. Then I got sick, and it took everything I had to hang on until my cancer went into remission. Suddenly, there were too may doubts, too many questions... too much unresolved anger. Eva has more than enough love to help me look to something beyond my strength and come to terms with my past. But we both have so much distrust--and so much to overcome. And I know we're going to need an extraordinary love and trust to walk through this thing together and into the blessing God has planned."

I don't consider myself to be very emotional but when a book can get my tear ducts to work overtime than its damn well written! I love the fact that not only did this book offer up inspiring scriptures from the Bible that related to real live situations. It also let you know that there is ALWAYS someone in a worst situation than you. Keep faith and you can and WILL get through it! I took a journey with Xenia Ruiz through: Love, Faith, Death, Tragedy, Infidelity, Sickness, Health, and the Will to carry on! This book was wonderfully written, and a definite staple on my bookshelf. I enjoyed it thoroughly!!

This living' is soooo....MAGNIFICENT!!


Late; I know but KK puh lease understand that I D'Maine Truth do have a life outside of blogging, with Sir E having me jet set here and there on any given day covering numerous events, as well as my daytime job it gets "Deeper Than Rap" ! Word to the wise A.K.A. Mr. Curtis Jackson: you may not want to start beef with someone when there album is slated for a release during the midst of this beef. It will only heighten the curiosity of the album and make people like myself go and cop just to see what they will say back! The "Boss" doesn't dwell on 50 2 much he addresses him oh so cleverly in "Mafia Music"..and I quote "I love to pay her bills, can't wait to pay her rent, Curtis Jackson baby mama ain't askin for a cent. Burn the house down, we gotta buy another, Don't forget the gas can, jealous, stupid muthaf*cka. " *whispers* Curtis pick up ya lip and exit stage left, annnnnd thanks!

Not to let his album be out shined with just addressing the hatas he has some really nice cuts. As I said for a Rap album to hit home with me I need a few bangers for the ladies and I got 'em: "All I Really Want" feat. The Dream, "Magnificent" feat. John Legend (both have very nice videos to accompany the infectious chorus) as well as one of my favs "Bossy Lady" feat NeYo which gives props to all the HBIC's in the world (myself included). Not to mention he keeps it street as well with such tracks as: "Usual Suspects" feat. Nas "In Cold Blood" which the title is self explanatory. And what Rap album will be complete without a song braggin' about how you running thangs in his case MIA ; he put pimpin' to lyrics in songs like: "Maybach Music" feat. TPain, Kanye West and Lil' Wayne; as well as "Yacht Club" feat Magazeen.

I must say that I really like this album, and I like "Rickety Ross" his style of rap to me is very nonchalant. Being that he has West Indian roots he also infuses Patois into his music which comes off real smoove! Spittin' rhymes over the beats is effortlessly, he has this calm to his voice, even on the "hardcore" tracks he appears real melodious! LOL...quietly I have a slight crush on his big Teddy Bear a*s and was looking for him last year during Miami's Memorial Day Weekend!! I'm gon' go right ahead and give ya'll the go ahead to go and spend ya coinz on this album if you haven't already. It's definitely worth the duckets!

You can have....WHATEVER YOU LIKE!!!


And what she wanted was consummation of their relationship! Sorry ladies; this one is officially "off the market!" *whispers* Ya'll know he's still up for grabs cause apparently he likes to share the goods; look at how many d*mn kids he done had on her!! It was reported that "T.I." and "Tiny" were going to seal the deal this weekend. Sources close to the future Mrs. Harris have said Tiny and her bridesmaids are working feverishly - making last minute plans to make sure that everything turns out perfectly. Tameka emailed me my invitation just this morning so I know they must be working hard at making this happens cause a traditional mail invitation would have taken too long! I WILL be in attendance and will be trying to snap some photos (low-key for you all) of the happy couple! Quietly I feel as though he can do sooooooo much better thou!  Am I the only one that thinks Tameka "Tiny" Cottle's is AWFUL!? I just don't see IT; there isn't N T thing cute about her to me..99.9% er'time I see her in photos she is a HAM = HOT A*S MESS!! ****SHADE****

Ya Lost Won One!! Epiphany: An epiphany is the sudden realization or comprehension of the (larger) essence or meaning of something. ...and I must say that I had an "Epiphany" and realized that Chrisette Michelle will be a staple in my music collection.

I remember hearing her voice in Jay Z's song "Lost One" and was wondering to myself who is this girl who is d*mn sure holding her own next to one of musics best rapper!?! *Whispers* I didn't get her 1st album I Am but my mom did, that has to count for something. Either way I was still able to listen to it and found a new appreciation for her eclectic, soulful R&B sound mixed with Jazz, she was definitely giving me a modern NeoSoul vibe!

The title track "Epiphany (I'm Leaving)" sealed the deal for me and was the reason I copped her 2ND studio release. She stays true to form and delivers another solid CD! The duet with NeYo "What You Do" is a classic her ode to telling men I'm just not an arm piece "Porcelain Doll" is very nice and I hearts the message! And who doesn't adore a nice love song "Notebook" does that for me and makes me think of that someone special. As well as one of my faves "Blame It on Me" where she takes a stand against a man and tells him she's basically over it she's not going to cry N T more and you can say N T thing you want! Be sure to check out her official site where you can see clips of performance as well as get info to upcoming tour dates and appearances!

VH1's reunion special host LaLa Vasquez A.K.A. Carmelo Anthony's baby mother got into it with some unruly fans last night in Dallas. Per LaLa: “Obviously playoff games bring out the best and the worst in fans but what happened on Monday night with the racial slurs / threats, verbal attacks on my son and physical attacks to myself by irate fans was completely unacceptable; the fans were totally out of control. What the cameras captured was me defending myself and didn’t show the abuse that was taking place.”

Ummmm just because your WHITE doesn't mean you're RIGHT!! What's wrong is wrong and LaLa had er'right to do what she did. I'm backing her 100% fan or not SWEET T; in the famous words of Mrs. Houston "Watch what the f*ck you say!"

Blind leading the Blind....



From the Baltimore Sun:

For the past two months, the murder of Lemuel Wallace was another unsolved crime in Baltimore. The blind, mentally disabled man was found shot to death in a bathroom stall in Leakin Park February 5. Now, city police have charged a 32-year-old pastor with the slaying of Mr. Wallace and their account of the crime is a tale of greed and deceit made all the more despicable by the chosen victim, a vulnerable disabled man.

Mr. Wallace lived in a group home in the 4500 block of Maryknoll Road that was affiliated with Arc of Baltimore where the accused, Kevin Jerome Pushia, worked until he resigned in January. The alleged circumstances of the Wallace murder: a contract murder to collect on a series of insurance policies that were fraudulently taken out. Police allege Mr. Pushia convinced Mr. Wallace to name him as a beneficiary on several policies.

When someone tried to collect one for $200,000, the Globe Life Insurance Co. made a routine check with police, which tipped investigators off to a possible motive for the crime and their first suspect.

Entire Story

Sidebar: see this is why its so hard for majority of people to go to church now. Someone who is supposed to be above the average citizen; a "Christian" committed the most horrendously horrendous crimes and not only that he broke the 6Th Commandment "Thou Shall NOT Kill"!!! *Whispers* see why I continue to party on a Saturday night and then praise him on a Sunday!?!

Fantasy Roller Coaster Ride?!?

What happen to the third time around being a charm? Instead of CiCi biting off more than she can chew, she needs to be in the studio working on some better tracks and/or vocals. Some of the tracks on her third studio release unexplainably entitled, "Fantasy Ride," are just as lame as the album cover!! KK's verdict: the album should have been titled "Roller Coaster Ride" = the album's flow and song selection go up and down leaving no room for consistency at OIL!!
Ballads like: "Lover's Thing" feat. The Dream & "Keep Dancin' on Me" are better than her uptempo songs such as: "Turntables" feat. Chris Brown which sounds like a knock off to Micheal Jackson's "Smooth Criminal" ! Not to mention that the swaggeriffic message in "Pucker Up" is over powered by a whack a*s pop, rave like beat! Of course, her radio released singles "Love, Sex, Magic" and "Never Ever" are bangers, but er rah her album leaves a lot to be desired. Don't be fooled by track #1 "Ciara to the Stage" because after that, it gets real mediocre!

NO SHADE, we here at KK still adore Little Miss Harris but this album really didn't do IT for us. But as sure as my shower is steamy, we'll support her because my girl can "1, 2, Step" with the best of em!

Heidi and her BURPLE @ss husband, Seal, renewed their vows over the weekend in Malibu! I don't know if they were going for a "Thriller" themed ceremony or what, but Seal definitely scared the hell out of ME! Question KK: What will this kid that Heidi is baking in the oven come out looking like??? Hmmm...I, for one, CAN wait to see that!

Parent, please talk to your children! Stay relevant in their lives and try your hardest to be a source of comfort to them so that they can confide in you! The last thing you want to do is have someone come tell you something about your child that you didn't know

So, I think Justin Timberlake has found a new part-time job while not being in the studio! I think everyone remembers the "D*ck in a box" skit he performed a couple of months back! Well this parody is a follow-up to it celebrating Mother's Day and it aired over the weekend!

Must Read:: Who Does She Think She Is?....

Well if we're referring to Benilde Little I'm gon' go ret ahead and say a talented a*s author!! I really enjoyed this book. It was a definite page turner and kept me coming back for more and more. This is the 1st book I've read by Little but it will NOT be the last. Little is actually the best selling author behind the bestselling smash hit "Good Hair" ! What else can you expect from the creative genius that's an editor at Essence?!
This book touches on love, race, gender issues, as well as sex and fashion! I love the style that this book is written in; as if you are watching a movie IE: flashbacks, and POV from each main character. You get to know the life of the main characters.



From the inside cover: Aisha Branch is getting married, and if she has her way, the wedding will be the event of the millennium. At twenty-six she is still the "baby girl," the indulged only child of Camille and the only grandchild of Geneva. As the wedding draws closer , the Branch family is turned upside-down-a $7,000 designer wedding dress? A fiance' who's a "white boy"? But that turmoil is nothing compared to what happens when Aisha falls hard for another man. All the excitement stirs up old feelings in the Branch women, and they reflect separately on their won lives and relationships, and the things they wish had turned out differently. Geneva, a seventy-year-old powerhouse who always strove for "Negro respectability," has never approved of Camille's decisions-single motherhood, a career in social work, dreadlocks. Aisha, the light of Camille and Geneva's lives, is a bright, beautiful, impulsive woman who is used to getting what she wants, even if she has to fight for it. Her real father's absence still looms large in her imagination, but her stepfather, who came into her life early on, has always treated her like a princess. Now Aisha has to choose between marrying her staggeringly wealthy fiance' and pursuing an elusive older man. For her part, Camille grapples with watching her adored daughter live the kind of life she didn't dare to dream of, and is just a little bit resentful of Aisha's ignorance of how hard Camille worked to make it possible. As the drama of Aisha's love like unfolds, the three woman take turns narrating their own stories in Little's most expansive novel yet.

I'm all for a great novel and good read, and I must say "Who Does She Think She Is?" is a very good read. If you are tired of the hood books (my boyfriend is a drug dealer, I wear all the latest designer clothes, my baby daddy dies, and I'm on the come up...) the this is something you'll enjoy. I know I did...tell me whatcha think. Hit me up at Keyboard.Khronicles@gmail.com or leave me a comment below.
