I literally replayed this joint about 5 times. Robin Thicke channels the Golden Hollywood Age in his new video for the song, "Pretty Little Heart," featuring Lil Wayne. The song is definitely something I can vibe, to.

At first I thought that this relationship would not last. Wiz and Amber have proved me wrong though. I looked at Amber going to Wiz as a downgrade, but she surprised me when she said in an interview, "When people say I've downgraded by dating Wiz, I say, have you ever dated Kanye?" That made me think about it. Unless you really know Kanye, you don't know how he acts or treated her and Wiz could be the best thing that ever happened to her. Apparently, he is. Amber posted her engagement ring today.
The song is inspired by the movie based on Steve Harvey's book, "Act like a lady, think like a Man." I love Ne-yo's part. It reminds me of a little situation I was in. Peep the video...

I haven't met this young woman of God in person yet, but we have connected via the social networking site Twitter.com and she is a friend of some people I know. Minister Danielle Matthews teaches at the W.O.W. Conference for women. An authentic New Orleans accent exudes from her mouth with a powerful yet profound word from God. I love to hear a New Orleans accent go forth. She is definitely annointed and I expect great things from her. Check out her 1st video...

So this past Saturday I decided to take my nieces to the Drake concert. It was last minute and spur of the moment, I made some calls to find tickets. Being who I am and having the favor that I have, I had no problem getting 6 tickets to the show. My nieces were stoked. My best friend was in town with her boo and her sister, so they joined us. I honestly thought it would be a kiddie show. To my surprise, Drake's "Club Paradise" had us rocking all night. The shows openers were Chase nCash, A$ap Rocky and Kendrick Lemar. Up until Kendrick Lemar came on, it was pretty lame. Kendrick brought excitement to the show. Then they began to prepare for Drake. Drake came out dressed in all black, slacks and a button up. A full band was behind him, bass, guitar, drums and 2 keyboard players. He opened the show with "Lord Knows." The crowd went bananas. He kept it rolling with "Underground Kings." I like this, because he went HARD from the beginning. He then went into "I'm On One" and expressed to the audience that this hip hop game is short lived and he may only have 2 more albums left before breaking into "Over."
The crowd was very mixed, mostly White. There weren't as many young kids as I thought there would be. But those White girls do have a tendency to look older and they all were dazzled up. Drake switched the tone with "Crew Love," "Shot for Me" and "She Will." We jammed to every joint. He went higher when he dropped Lil Wayne's "I'm Going In." After that He did "Up All Night," "Round of Applause," "We'll Be Fine" and "Forever." That set up "Club Paradise" for the ultimate party. The U.N.O. Lake Front Arena was definitely on full tilt after he did those joints. Loud screams exuded from all around the arena.
With the crowd on a total HIGH, Drake stopped and did something that Jay-Z does at all of his shows. He went to the right side and started acknowledging his fans. He pointed them out and let the cameras catch them on the big screen. He said to one guy, "I see you with the orange shoes. I don't know where you're going with those, but I appreciate you coming to see me." He shouted out people on the left side, and the ones in the middle. Surprisingly, Drake had alot of support in there with him. People who'd worked on his first mixtape were there, some of his employees parents and his YMCMB comrades. He shouted them all out as well.
Drake showed plenty emotion as he does in his music. During "Marvin's Room," "Take Care" and "Miss Me," he went ham. He fell all on the floor after "Shot for Me." He danced at the end of Take Care. He took his shirt off around the time he performed "Cameras." The crowd sang along, "We look like we're in love, but only on camera, only on camera, only on camera." The HIGHLIGHT of the night was when he performed "Stay Schemin" off of Rick Ross' "Rich Forever" mixtape. The entire crowd screamed as the music cut, "B**** you wasn't with me shooting in the gym," a line Drake wrote after Vanessa and Kobe settled on what Vanessa would get after the divorce. I was laughing historically at the men and WOMEN and the seriousness on their faces as they all shouted the line. It was also bananas when he performed "Practice" and shout out all the girls from the 504. It's funny to see White girls trying to back that ass up though.
Drake closed out the show with "Look What You've Done," "Make Me Proud," "Practice" and "Hyfer." The crowd gave him a standing ovation. All in all it was a LIVE show. Drake later partied in Harrah's Casino's Masquerade Room with DJ Hektik.
