Just in case you didn't know, I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York =). Its something about Brooklyn that separates its resident from the rest of the world. We take great pride in just simply being born here. Our tough streets coexist with generous amounts of love that shape and form us. Brooklyn is a melting pot of many cultures. This results in a unique bred of people who are not only exposed to the culture of ones family but also the many cultures of the world. I feel this makes us a tad bit more open minded and more adaptable to change. Adaptation and survival do go hand in had after all.
Here I have Fabolous's new single " If the Money Goes" Featuring Jay Z. Two of my favorite Brooklyn born artist on one track. Fabolous' newly released album "Loso's Way" was of course the talk of the town especially the week of the release. It even became a trendy topic on twitter. Yes Brooklyn goes hard! Check out the video and leave comments. Its currently on repeat on my Itunes and I'd love to hear what everyone else has to say about it.
I was on Twitter the other day (@StefSeyzSo) and a friend of mine sent me a song title and artist. Angus and Julia stone _ Just a Boy. I proceeded to go on youtube and watched the music video for said song. I instantly fell in love and started to look up more of the pairs music.
The brother sister duo are originally from Sydney, Australia and have actually been out as a duo since 2006.

Anyone who knows me knows that I'm big on old school music. I'm not just speaking R&B n Hip hop. I'm speaking of all genres of music, especially old reggae.
When I hear great artist such as Sanchez and Beres Hammond it brings me back to a time when music was music. Spreading words of love, praise, heartbreak, and unity. We might even hear a story. Today's music is filled with pride filled artist. People with thing to prove. Flaunting there money, jewelry, and women. Where has music gone? It pains me to hear the difference in the messages music send to us.
It humbles me and reminds me how simple and pleasurable life really is. Life is simple. People are complicated. We need to stop focusing on negativity even though its hard. Appreciate life's simple pleasure. The sounds of rain against a window, the sound of a breeze flowing through tree branches, etc. Positive energy is all around us. We just choose to not acknowledge it. On that note next time your outdoors just take a minute to appreciate your surroundings. Stay still and feel the positivity around you. You'll feel it. Then set your priorities straight and most of life's stress causers will disappear.
Here I've left you one of my Favorite Beres Hammond Songs. Enjoy.
Maxwell has returned. The man behind classic like "Fortunate" and "This Woman's Worth" has returned to remind people what R&B truly is. Black Summers Nightthe first album to we've seen from neo-soul singer in eight years is the first of his trilogy. With singles like "Pretty Wings" and "Bad Habits" its nearly impossible to not be taken back to the 90's; when R&B was at its best! I am anxiously awaiting the following two albums. I cant wait to see what he has in store. I'd rate this 4 out of 5 stars.
