Before I sat down to write this “The Walking Dead” Season Five Episode One review I re-watched the entire episode on my DVR. Now that I am actually writing, I am watching it for a third time. BTW, I cracked open the good old legal pad and pen for this recap because its just that crucial. Yes, it was just that f*cking EPIC people. So much so that the show broke a television viewing record with 17.3 million viewers between the ages of 18-49. WHAT?!? That is major with a capital MA! Enough with my Walking Dead propaganda. (maybe that wasn’t the best word to roll with, but imma roll with it, lol) Here are the 6 Reasons The Walking Dead Season 5 Premiere was Beyond Epic.

Jagged Edge: breaking hearts all over again

IMG_0972.JPGRemember the award-winning R&B group, Jagged Edge, from the late-’90s and early-’00s? Under the leadership of producer Jermaine Dupri, the group, which rolled out such hits as Let’s Get Married and Where the Party At, plans to release their 8th studio album on October 27. We were fortunate enough to attend the album-listening party Sunday in Atlanta, Georgia. Group members Brandon Casey, Brian Casey, Kyle Norman, and Richard Wingo hosted the party. For about an hour attendees were immersed in the sounds of their newest album, J.E. Heartbreak II.  The album overall maintained the same R&B feel as J.E. Heartbreak (2000), their second and biggest-selling album to date. Don’t let that fool you, though, because there are a couple of tracks in which the group went with a completely different sound. If you’re nostalgic for the R&B sounds of the early-’00s, be sure to pick up J.E. Heartbreak II on October 27. If you’re super anxious to make sure you receive the album, you can place your preorder here.

New Video: August Alsina feat Nicki Minaj ‘No Love’

Last night, August Alsina premiered his latest single “No Love” visual on 106 & Park. I just happened to be tuning in, caught a glimpse and fell in love with it. In the video Nicki Minaj (featured on the track) plays August’s love interest similar to The Game in Nicki’s “Pills and Potion”; however, in August’s video we actually get to see him stepping out on Nicki who plays his “main” with two “sides”. August plays a dude caught up in the hype and mistakenly cheating on a seemingly good woman. When have we not heard that story before.

In a recent interview with Rap-Up TV, August opened up about shooting the video with the “Anaconda” rapper, who also wrote the treatment.

“Nicki was very, very deeply involved with this one in particular, as far as the video goes,” he said. “She had a vision for it and she really, really is a big fan of the record, which was real important to me because it makes it that much more special.”

As I write this post I am deeply sadden. The news broke that Simone Battle for girl group, G.R.L, passed away on Friday (September 6 2014) from a suspected suicide and I could not bring myself to move even hours after reading the news. Is it me or is it really that death is becoming more frequent. Yesterday it was Simone, last week it was Joan Rivers and on a more personal note 3 days ago a guy from my old neighborhood.

RIP Joan Rivers
