I Launched A Show!!

Image
Hey ya'll!! Checking back in again. 😁 I really can NOT believe there is only 2 weeks left in September, which means this year will be over in about 3 months. Crazy!!!! Time flies they say.

Well just an update about my media company and new blog The Double Scoop. Me and my sister took it to another level and launched a web show at the end of July. We had been talking about creating our own show for a while. After we got our feet wet hosting a music podcast in Atlanta for about a year, we knew eventually we would go in this direction. The show in Atlanta was actually created by one of our friends and when I saw he needed new hosts I hit him up to see if we could step in.

It was cool! We got a lot of experience being in front of the camera and we got a chance to  meet some dope artists and other people! Stepping stones..  😊

Our new show is based in Charlotte, North Carolina. We feature film makers, music artists, entrepreneurs and other creatives making moves and grinding for what…

I Really Wanted To Love The Tupac Movie......

Ya'll I really wanted to love All Eyez On Me.  I wanted all of the years we waited for the movie to be made to be worth it, but I was so disappointed with the outcome. When I saw the low ratings and negative reviews I got a little worried but still decided to see the movie on opening day because I wanted to give the film a chance. About 30 minutes in I felt like I was watching a Lifetime movie! I told myself with the movie being over 2 hours there was still a possibility it could get better and it did slightly..... but that was mainly because of the concert scenes and music.

I honestly thought the movie was wack, rushed (storytelling aspect), corny, and not well written. No disrespect to the production team, writers, and cast but that's just my opinion. It annoys me when some people say you're hating or you are not old enough and that's why you can't appreciate the movie. That's not the case. True enough when Tupac died I was still a kid but as I got older I was…

I'm Tired of Posting Hashtags

Ya'll I'm really tired and drained of posting hashtags every time another person dies from police brutality. When my sister told me the officer that killed Philando Castile was acquitted, I was a little shocked but sadly not surprised. I was shocked because even with the videos that were released  showing excessive use of a weapon..... there was still no conviction. I was shocked that even though this man complied with the officer........ he was still killed. When I watched the dash cam footage of the day Philando was killed my eyes teared up, and I thought about his daughter and girlfriend who were in the car watching him being shot to death. They will probably be traumatized for the rest of their lives.

I understand I'm not an officer so I have no idea what it is like to wear a badge and put my life in harm's way, but how many times are officers going to continue to get away with murder because they said they felt "threatened" or feared for their lives? Wher…

Just Checking In.....

Image
Ya'll it has been soooooo long since I've written anything on this site! I don't know who out there follows my personal blog but I just wanted to check in and say hello and update ya'll on what has been going on in my crazy world. 

I've been channeling all my creativity and writing into my new blog that I created two years ago with my twin sis called The Double Scoop. Check it out here! Both of us have been blogging individually since about 2012 but we decided to put our twin brains together and create something much bigger than just a blog. We are trying to build an empire and leave a legacy....ya dig? Both of us are lovers of music and film so our new blog focuses on that as well as lifestyle/personal topics like I write on this blog. We cover events and spotlight people making moves as entrepreneurs and just creatives in general putting in work for their passions and hustles. 

Our blog/media company is really growing and I'm proud of the progress. I'm not …
