Millennium Tour 2019

Hey y'all!

I've been gone for a minute but I'm BAAAACK!  Seeing that I wrote my last post back in 2017 😲.... I have decided that I'm going to stop setting a goal to be more consistent with posting on this blog. LOL! I'll just drop a line when I can. I might finally start vlogging, who knows. "My 2 Cents and a Biscuit" will always be my baby though because it was a way to keep my love for writing alive once I finished school and joined the daily 8 to 5 grind. I'll talk about how the working grind can make us lose our passions in a later post though. Today I want to talk about The Millennium Tour!!

Sooo it was announced at the end of last year that the Millennium Tour was happening. When I saw the line-up my adrenaline started rushing! These were artists that practically made up the soundtrack to some of my high school and early college years. B2K, Mario, Pretty Ricky, Chingy, Lloyd, Bobby Valentino, and the Ying Yang Twins all on one stage! I made it my mission to be at one of those shows lol! There was a show on me and Amy's birthday in Atlanta that we originally planned to go to but of course when you're trying to plan anything with a group of friends nobody has their money together. 😒 By the time everyone had their money all the decent seats were taken. Luckily another show was added and there were still plenty of good seats that were reasonably priced. We bought our tickets and patiently waited for the day of the show.

We attended the April 4th show at the State Farm Arena in ATL and it was lit!! 💥💥 I mean I'm still on a high and don't want to come down. I really did not want the night to end. I was a little sad when the show was over, I guess because it gave me such a nostalgic feeling. It took me back to those carefree days before "adulting" consumed our lives. Just being there with my sister and longtime friends listening to music that coincided with so many special memories over the years made me a little emotional. And it was so special because the show ended a little after midnight, so we brought in our birthday there. It was definitely a celebration of life. Remembering the good ole days but still looking forward to what’s to come from the years ahead.

At first I was salty because we were late getting to the show, so we missed Chingy, Bobby V and Lloyd. I think I was the most upset about missing Chingy because I wanted to do the chicken head like I use to back in the day. I got over it though. The show overall was an amazing experience for anyone that were fans and who grew up to these artist's music. Mario had a really good set. I forgot how great of a performer he was and how well he could sing. He glowed up and got sexy on us! Pretty Ricky was on point too. Their set brought back a lot of memories. Their Late Night Special album reminded me of when me and Amy got our first car that we had to share. It was a white Dodge Stratus. We loved that car! Ohhhhh the memories. Keith Sweat who I didn't really care to see made an appearance. Bow Wow and YoungBloodz hit the stage for a second too.  The Ying Yang twins got the crowd turnt up with their classics.

Between sets a comedian walked through the crowd randomly giving the mic to people who wanted to show off their vocals. It was hilarious to see how many people wholeheartedly felt they could actually sing. Some of the people were talented though and they tried to use the moment to get discovered. lmao

The show ended with B2K. Me and Amy were stans for them back in the day! J-Boog was my favorite and Omarion was Amy’s. The group picked up right where they left off 15 years ago. I remember seeing them for the first time when I was in high school and to see them present day was epic! Their dancing was still on point, but you could hear them breathing hard in the mics! LOL! They didn't hide that they were tired, but it was still a great performance. The boys.... well men all still looked good too! It was definitely a night to cherish and remember.

Is Cheating Inevitable?

            When most people think about what it means to cheat in a relationship, they automatically think about having sex with another person outside their relationship; but cheating is so much more than just sex. Have you ever made a strong connection with another person while you were in a relationship to the point that you thought about that person frequently and started to develop feelings for that person? What if it got to the point where you started to lose interest in the person with whom you were in a relationship? Have you ever texted or talked on the phone with someone you were attracted to, someone unknown to your man or woman? A lot of people say they have control over how far they will allow a situation to go, but eventually after spending so much time with another person to whom you are attracted and with whom you have a connection, emotions tend to get involved. I think developing a strong emotional relationship with anot


    One of my old classmates reached out to me in November and asked me to check out a track called "Dreams." I didn’t get a chance to listen to it until mid-December, but I must say when I finally heard the song I was impressed. Anyone who knows me well knows that I’m an avid music lover, especially when the music has meaning. "Dreams" is without a doubt a song with substance; it definitely speaks to the mind of the conscious thinker. The song sheds light on certain taboo issues in the black community, issues people are reluctant to address. These issues include the constant occurrence of senseless violence and people’s lack of morals and priorities. The verse below which is actually one of my favorite verses on the track speaks on one of those issues: “We conditioned to the violence…… black and brown riots, to the point that our alliance follows moments of silence, and it’s sad that the people never see the evil…….. so long as the Gucci belt mat

12 PLAY (Part 1)

*This story is based on an actual event. Special thanks to the trifling young man who inspired the story.* As I was heading back to my car to get the remainder of my groceries, I noticed a small note on the windshield. I hesitantly opened the note and read the tiny words written inside of it:            “ Hi, I think you’re cute, and I would like to get better acquainted with you if  that's possible..... call me...." -Diego Enclosed in the note was a business card with his number written on it. Diego was one of my neighbors who lived in the same building; his apartment was just below mine.   Thoughts quickly fluttered my mind, as I began to go into deep contemplation of even calling this guy. I wasn’t the least bit excited about getting to know him because I had reached the plateau on meeting new people and dating . As much as I was tired of the single life, I was just as tired of forming relationships that were not going anywhere.   I decided to play detec
