[Throwback Thursday] Hip- Hop

kool herc

There is no better way to start the year, than with a little Throwback Thursday. My goal this year is to do nothing but educate and have fun in this process. Now i know everybody has there New Year Resolution and that is all fine and dandy , some may follow thru and others may not but that’s okay because I am adding a resolution to your list now! Every Week you will get a history fact rather its it the Hip Hop culture or the African American culture you will learn something.

Of course in honor of our great Fleet DJs let me tell you how Hip Hop started. In the early 70s
Kool Herc a jamacian spinner discovered the “break”or the “merry go round” which is so common to get one song mixed into another. This was done with two turntables, now when this is happening usually the “DJ” is either rapping or giving you “The Hype”- dang they do more than you know! That my friends was the start of something new and revoultionary you see thats how other became MCs.
Yes you had rap where the people always told the stories but without the mixture of music and sound it wouldn’t be what it was or is today. So hats off to New York the city of the creators and further more hats off to all the DJS because without you Hip Hop just wouldnt be.

Check out this video on how he felt about it :https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hw4H2FZjfpo

The Quest Chronicles: Dating An Entertainer

DAN

Lights, camera but maybe no action! Being an entertainer, dating an entertainer or attempting to date at all is not what it cracks up to be. Well, at least not for me. I personally feel it’s a gift & a curse trying to balance out having a music career while bringing some normalcy to my life.

Shout out to all my independent women! Boss Ladies stand up! As a woman who is a boss, it’s rewarding. I call the shots, they report to me, I am the head lady in charge but once clocked out, things change. There is nothing wrong with having your own but some of us desire to share it with someone special.

I’ve tried to date regular men as well as men who work in the entertainment industry & so far, it has not worked out whatsoever. Let me write a few of the situations I been in to give you a taste of my dating experiences.

Let’s talk about going out. Whether it was a regular guy or an entertainer (Music artist, Djs, etc) I ended up having the same problem or issue. As a well known public figure, when I’m out and about people tend to come up to me, say hi, catch up,& possibly want a picture. I’m an entertainer so this shouldn’t be shocking. As for the men I was dating, they had a problem with it. Some felt left to the side, some showed insecurities, feeling uncomfortable to the point they started to think the worse. “Who’s this person?” “How well do she know him?” I wonder if they ever been intimate or is this really a fan?” Usually people assume only females think like this but I know from personal experience that so do men.

To a certain extent I can understand why regular guys would feel some type of way because they’re not use to this lifestyle. At first they may feel they can handle it until they actually have to. As far as entertainers, I was very shocked! You work in the same field as me. I expect you to have a better understanding of how it is. Women come up to you but I don’t feel no type of way. Either way, if a person is not secure within themselves, there will always be a problem.

Another big issue is TIME. We’re always on the go, appearances, performances, bookings, meetings & more. Not just entertainers neither but in this case, we are the topic. Many understand time is limited but still complain when they don’t get enough of the other person’s time. I know it can get hard as well as very challenging but as I stated earlier, this comes with the territory. We have to sacrifice and compromise but don’t try to make us feel bad because we can’t give you all the time you want. That’s not fair, especially if you see many of us trying to balance it all out, the best way we know how. This goes back to knowing and understanding your mate or potential mate. It’s not for everyone.

Social Media: With this topic alone I can write a book series but I’ll keep it short.LOL Social media will have you walking on egg shells if you don’t know how to use it properly. From fans, to stalkers being flirtatious to sliding in Dm’s, It can get messy if you allow it to. But let’s not focus on others, let’s focus on the two in the relationship or “talking” to possibly be exclusive. Some will see all your posts, notice what you click LIKE on, pay close attention to what people write on your page , how you respond and if you interact according on their page as well. Guys I may have been interested in, definitely took the fun out of it all! They were too into their feelings not realizing that it’s nothing but social media and if they paid more attention to me and not others, they would have noticed that.

  • How long is your studio sessions?
  • Who were those people in your Instagram video?
  • How come you’re not home yet?
  • You have to go out of town again?
  • How come I can’t go?
  • Do you have something to hide?
  • Who are you with?

This blog only scratches the surface but I’ll end it here for now. Just beware of who you date, trying to date & know what may come with it.

As usual, I only gave a tease on the topic. Why, because I love for you all to chime in with your personal experiences & opinions so you know what to do below.

This is Ms Gotta Love Me herself, it’s T-Quest Tuesday & you’ve just been Questified! Show love by sharing & following me on social media at TQuestGLM

Email me topics to discuss & QUESTions you may have. To learn more about me or to hear about certain topics in dept please download my app “T-Quest” in your google play store & visit my website GottaLoveMeWorld.com

*Press Play: I Look Up/ Capital P album review by DJ Layne Luv

IMG_1866

“….so where’s he from?” …”Delaware”…”The State?” ….”haha nah bro the city, right there from your state Ohio” This is how Capital P was presented to me via a constant DM on IG through his business partners. I must admit that for a few months, I didn’t follow up as well as I could have. Being a music critic and state manager for all of Ohio with The Fleet DJ’s, I tend to get a lot of submissions regularly. However, after I had a phone conversation with Byrd and Jamezz Bonn (Divine Engineering), I instantly felt a connection. They insisted that Capital P was the one that was going to make noise from Ohio. So I invited him up to the studio to kick it wit us just to see how he vibed with my crew. So one Wednesday, he came up to the WTMH Studio and right there on the spot, we said we were going to premier his single on our live Workout Wednesday broadcast just to see how our audience felt about his work. The single they submitted was El Hombre. I will testify, from the very first note we heard from that song, we were believers in this man’s music.

Being in this business for a while, a DJ hears a lot of music, so it really takes something special to keep an artist’s body of work from going in the pile and moving on. If you listen to Capital P’s / El Hombre first, you will be fooled into thinking he’s just another trap rapper no matter how great the song is. But when you play his entire album of Capital P/I Look Up  you’ll bear witness to artistry coming from the Delaware city. It will actually blindside you of how good Capital P really is. One of my favorite songs of the project Tuck It In takes you into the mind of a person that has seen a lot of ups and downs and of someone just trying to make sense of the world. The live guitar on this songs helps the listener drift from a stressful day into a bliss of funkdefied melody. It may actually be one of my most favorable tracks on the project.

Throughout the album you can hear the pain in the rapper’s voice. It’s a beautiful pain like that of a Bob Marley meets the rap-from-the gut-flow like Tupac Shakur. Not to even try to compare the Delaware rapper to these Legendary figures, it’s just that you can hear the same determination to change the minds in his songs. The song Good is a perfect example of that determination. As he says in the song…“I’m a get it till I’m good” the listener can truly understand Capital P will not stop until he sees some success for his labor. Once again I have to go back to the erie guitar riffs that wail, to paint the picture of a rapper with a big gift trying to push this sound out of his small city.

State of Mind you can hear Cap P making a statement. He is getting the listener to understand that the happening that go on in big cities happen right there in the city of Delaware. He wants the audience to not underestimate the crime and violence that happen where he is proud to be from. As the heroin epidemic continues to stay on the rise in Ohio, he is sounding the horn the same way Grandmaster Flash did with “The Message” when he said, “It’s like a jungle sometimes it makes me wonder how I keep from going under” State Of Mind takes you on a day in Delaware where anything can and will happen.

Tell You What… I’m predicting will be a “ladies” summer song for 2018 in the Midwest. It’s a melodic song where the rapper tries on his vocal skills for size and delivers nicely. It’s always been a formula for rappers to come out with the radio song right before the summer. This is that song. When Cap P actually played that song for me on my radio show, I asked him “So when do you come in on the song?” they all laugh and he says “That is me through the whole song” I’m like “That you singing?”….and he grins . That was another time when I became a believer in his music.

Overall, I give this album a high rating because of the production and arrangement of all the songs. It’s a solid project! You can tell time was taken on the mixing and mastering of all the songs. When I listened to this entire album, it’s like reading a book. The content has to be just as exciting as the title. I Look Up is just that exciting to listen to.

****

Out of 5 stars I would give it 4 based on production and lyrical content….5’s are given for classic albums and only the rest of the world can give him that. Let’s see if I Look Up is a game changer for OHIO.
