First things first…my MAIN DAMMIE is BACK. Just like Face! That’s right, Toyosha is back on da roads of the H. As you may have read in an earlier blog she was out of commission didn’t want to move. Her converter failed and dumped a bunch of metal into the transmission. Needless to say she was down for the count, but she is back!! After a few days in the shop she is like new. I missed her. I didn’t know how empowering it was riding up high. After using my mom’s car and the compact rental I feel like I have room for days driving TT. Now don’t get me wrong, I did love the great gas mileage I was getting in those little motor scooters!
NOW ON TO THE TRIFE…
My baby daddy, Allen Iverson, is expecting a fourth child with his wife, Tawanna, this summer. She was his B-A-B-Y M-A-M-A first. This one goes out to Tawanna!! Cause I would have that man’s children any day and y’all know I’m all scared of that motherhood thing. LOL! Did you see that spanking Philly put on Detroit Wed? Wooo hoo that’s what happens when you put AI and Chris together. Now that is a BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUTIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIFUUUUL thing! Mmmph mmmph mmmph and the basketball was nice too.
Star Jones’s husband, Al Reynolds, quit his job as an Investment Banker!!! Sources say he is looking to explore other options. OTHER OPTIONS? What are those options Mr. Star Jones? Manicures and Pedicures… hanging out with your boyfriend- er I mean your boys!! Well he has made plenty of money and we know Star don’t mind letting him do his thang. So go on Stoney Jr. make it happen. I ain’t mad at you. DO U
So there is beef in H-town. Yesterday TI, another one of my bd’s (he is also on my short man list -a list of shorter brothers that can get it from me despite being vertically challenged), was in town yesterday. He was here for a concert in Beaumont with Nelly and Fat Joe (which was cancelled- Nelly’s sister died yesterday. RIP Jackie D.) So TI, went to Cloverland to shoot some footage or something. For those who don’t know, Cloverland is the hood of Houston’s own Lil Flip. The story goes like this … someone from Flip’s camp sucker punched TI. Shots were fired and there was drama. No one was shot or hurt. I guess TI don’t know Flip. LOL Bring em Out!! Bring em Out! Now, you didn’t hear ANY of this from me…cause I ain’t one to gossip.
So this morning I was listening to the local hip hop station’s early morning mix. Man oh man that DJ GT (I remember when buschick and I use to hang out at the Mahogany Cafe and he Steve Nice would be there…GT has a mad flow- he’s a NYC boy) he got off this morning. He gave us that late 80’s early 90’s mix. I was jamming so hard I could barely finish getting dressed. Yes, I do jam that hard in the mornings when the music is good. LOL!
The mix just took me back to my oh so super trife days in college. I was just telling a friend of mine about the first time I ever heard Tribe. Nope it wasn’t I left my wallet in El Segundo. The first time I heard Tribe, which was actually the second time now I come to think of it, (the first time I heard Tribe was Bonita Applebaum and I was putting someone on for the first time in my life…anyway you’ll get that on the way home), was at KTRU (Rice’s radio station) hanging out while a friend was doing his radio show Base917. He played Its Like Buttah…I was like who is that. He replied Tribe Called Quest. Man that Q-tip he is the REAL SHYT (also another baby daddy). Tribe, Jungle Brothers, LNOS, Dela Soul, Black Sheep and all that East Coast rap became a part of my life soundtrack. Those songs and artists always take me back to my youth. I was so young and silly then. Not old and silly like I am now.
