Would you rock this?

Keyshia Cole was on BET's '106 & Park' this week in an outfit that looked like Prince circa 1986. Hmm, sometimes Keyshia gets it right, other times not so much. What do you think? Would you rock this?

If you want to try a more tame version of this look. Might I suggest downsizing the fur, keeping the belt, and putting on some pants goddamnit! Leggings don't work with everything.

Here are some fur vest from, and Baby Phat. More wearable for your real life.

Who says she doesn't date black dudes?

Here are exclusive pics of the real diva herself, Naomi Campbell, with her latest boy toy Lewis Hamilton. And you thought she only dated Italian billionaires. Well reportedly this Hamilton fella is a Formula 1 race car driver worth $200 million. So there-when it comes to dating the only color she sees is green...

Besides so what if she prefers the company of blondes, no one says anyhing about these characters and their preference for the caucasian persuasion.

And the list goes on.

Big Check, Little Check-Winter Coat Edition

Celebs with dough know that a good coat is the most important staple of a winter wardrobe. And if you're Gwen Stefani, Hillary Swank, Rihanna, or Jessica Alba then you know that houndstooth is the latest craze. Why not reflect this classic trend in your outerwear?

Big Check...Little Check Part II

Here are some options to get in on the houndstooth trend.

These are from Dr. Jays, Newport News, Banana Republic, and Oscar De La Renta. Can you match coats to the names?

Ok, OK mine is definitely not the De La Renta, its $25 from Conway! Hey!!

He Could Get it!

What's his name? Who cares? Ok if you really must know this is Will Demps and he's some sort of football player. And yes, he is the reason why Letoya Luckett's single sold so many units-did you see the video, damn! All I can say is-ahhhhh.

Dance too much booty in her pants!

Meet Angel lola luv, the latest Video girl to grace the cover of King Magazine and countless videos. Listen I am not one to hate on a chick, and I do think her face is quite pretty, but is this what you negroes want? I'm sorry but her ass looks like it's full of sugar honey ice tea! Buffy-nice ass, Kim K-nice ass, Serena Williams- nice ass, Angel lola luv-deformed freakish tumor ass. I'm sorry fellas but I have never been more proud to be a pancake butt in all my life. Angel girl, you went too big on the implants-gross.

Here's what nice ass looks like:

The Shoe Report

Feet need love too. For your feet, long boots will keep you warm and stylish. In slender cuts or the trendier balloon style, and Grey is the in color this season. These are from Bakers, Alloy, Dr. Jays, Macys, Saks and Payless! See if you can figure out which styles belong to each store.

The Bag Report

Yes it's winter here in the big big city. What should you be wearing on your shoulders? Let me fill you in on something: Satchels are hot, the bigger the better I say, and if you can't afford that infamous YSL Rihanna's been toting around, you can always find a few that have a similar design. These are from and Urban Outfitters.

Puppy Love?

Seems like my man Rashid "Commonsense" gets around like Digital Underground. First Erykah, then Taraji, then Kerry Washington, now Serena! Whew, thats a mouth full. Well I'm not even mad at that cause at least he gets around with the sistas unlike some brothas who shall remain nameless (ahem John Legend!). So go ahead an ho it up Rashid. Oh, and by the way, can you do me next cause you are fine as red red wine.

I'mmmm BaaaacccKkkk!

And more opinionated than ever. Get ready for the goodness, the Ave is back in full effect.

The Look from Check to Check...

Big Check
A new album calls for a new look and Alicia Keys is definitely stepping her fashion game up these days. No more fitted caps for her, her new m.o. is skinny jeans, tailored feminine blouses, and major platforms or boots. Her new look screams feminine with a touch of urban edge. Check her out...

Little Check.
For that Alicia Keys Urban fashionista look on a budget might I suggest the following:
Blouses and supper skinny jeans for under $100 each from Alloy, Bebe and Urban Outfitters.

And don't forget the shoes both from Payless, yes payless biach, did you forget that your check was the little check?


I know I am late, this happened like two weeks ago, but I can't pass up the opportunity to talk about this. Bill Cosby was on the Oprah Winfrey show on an episode people are referring to as "airing out our dirty laundry". I've only read some excerpts from this show, but I don't know why people are saying Bill aired out our business. In order to "air out" our business it has to be under wraps to begin with. Wake up black folk, it aint no secret- everyone knows you'd rather buy some new rims for your benz instead of paying for a tutor for your child who reads two levels below their actual grade level! Ok OK, that was harsh, I take it back, but you know who you are. Don't hate Bill and Oprah, they're already wealthy and educated. Like Michael Jackson said maybe it's time we all take a look at that man in the mirror. Heeheehee.


Is it me or has television been really wack these days? "I Love New York" is played out, same gay guys, same big weaves. "Kimora Lee Simmons Life in the Fast Lane" seems like the same four episodes on a loop. Luckily I have two shows to recommend.

"The Game" comes on the CW on Monday nights at 9:30pm. It's basically about a young black couple and the ups and downs of their relationship. The lead character is Melanie, a med student who is torn between academia and her boyfriend Derwin's flashy pro-football lifestyle. For a sitcom its cute, fresh, and often very funny. Watch this with your boo boo to get a real good "discussion" going.

"Keyshia Cole The Way It Is" has it season premiere tonight at 10:30am on BET. First Mario now you Keyshia? Is everyone's mama on crack? I guess that explains why I can't sing a lick, cause my mom worked a 9 to 5 sober. Needless to say I will be tuned in tonight to see if Keyshia too will force her jailbird mom into couldn't ask for a better storyline.


Ok, ok, so I don't know if this is true love or silly gossip, but what I do know is that these two would make some fine looking babies. So Kerry you have my blessing, and Common I forgive you for cheating on me.


Last week in NYC, Mayor Bloomberg and City officials continued to prove that they hate poor people.
In an effort to fix a "loop hole" in the housing system. Homeless Commissioner Rob Hess announced that they would be putting restrictions on the emergency housing program that grants homeless families a room for the night when they come to shelters after 5pm. Hess and other anti-homeless city officials argued that these families are putting a financial strain on the city's resources by stayig in shelters every night when they can stay with family members. Hmmm, how can I say this without sounding ignorant? What the f&^^%$% are these people smoking? City Councilman Bill DiBlasio said it best, "For someone to keep coming back to that office and sitting for hours on end, that's not someone playing a game, that's someone who doesn't have an option." Are these city officials crazy? Did they personally go into each house and inspect every family's living situation? How do they know they have a safe, stable place to stay, without hostile, violent, or potentially dangerous relatives? Better question what kind of crazy person would stand outside every night for a room in a nasty shelter when they had other housing options? Obviously Rob Hess must be smoking that good ish. Mayor Bloomberg and his whole operation need to be put out of office.

The Bizness!!! Underground Artist of the Month

Meet some of New York's realest beat makers, two artists who are trying to make their name known to the world. They have real raw talent and thats why they are our artists of the month.

AnimositY is his name.... given by street legend mayhem from the ruff headz crew
killed by the jakes due to wrong
identity... animosity grew up in the best borough in ny... brooklyn.. he remains a street legend, known for his androic poetic scrolls, which captures the ears of true hip hop headz.... his crew name is WORDSMITH.. peep his new mix c.d. coming out very soon... Featuring his comrades, one!

***************************Name: Ambush 
Birth place: Brooklyn N.Y. 
Ht: 5ft 5in Wt: 170 Eyes: brwn  Lt Skin. 
Interest: Sports, music, fitness, and money

Motivation: My family and spiritual beliefs are what fuel my hunger. I do not fear failure, I accept the challenge to find ways to improve myself. Through personal growth and failure, I realize that there is strength in weakness for those who seek it. The loss of my mother at an early age provided me the strength to overcome many obstacles.

Favorite Artist: Nas because of his ability to lyrically assault beats while giving vivid details telling stories. Fifty because of his ability to make your head bop while giving you an unbelievable rush.

Old School Favs: Kool G Rap is the original fifty to me and he still gets it in. Big Daddy Kane the RAW album is my favorite of all time. Lord finesse the original funky man nuff said.       

Animosity and Ambush are the future of Hip hop. Remember when Teddy Riley introduced the world to 'New Jack Swing', or The Neptunes made you want to skate board to their outerspace/paired down sound? Well get ready for a new era in sound. If you used to head nod to artist such as Wu-Tang Clan, Mobb Deep, or Az from the firm, then this is for you. Apex Prductions' sound harkens back to an era when hip hop made you do more than dance, it made you think. These guys are the anti-'Cupid Shuffle'. So when your done doing the superman at your best friend's wedding or bah-mitzvah, check out Animostiy and Ambush, your head will nod, and your brain will definitely thank you.

If you don't believe the hype, check out one of their songs for yourself, here's "Morning Hustle"
