SAINt JNH is currently on his Ghetto Lenny’s Ignorant Tour. He has been international and will soon be in the states. Yesterday (March 7th) the hip hop artist preformed in Auckland New Zealand. He has upload a clip from the concert to his instagram today. The clip is nothing short of amazing.

The stage presence from the artist is impeccable. The clip starts off with him preforming his song “Trap” as the artists jumps up and down his fans are in complete unison with him. The music then cuts off and his fans continue with the song. SAINt JNH then jumps in and goes A Capella with his fans. The connection he has with the crowed in remarkable. The clip is truly inspiring.

Carlos St. John is SAINt JHN’s birth name. The 33 year old artist was born in Brooklyn New York and is not only a rapper but a singer and song writer as well. He started his career back in 2010. During those earlier years he racked up many song writing credits form other artists. Around 2016 he started to focus more on his independent material. Since then his music has grown in popularity. As we can see in this video his fans are very loyal. That was clear to see when the entire audience could go A Cappella with the artist knowing every word.

We are all use to Moneybagg Yo’s amazing diamonds sparking in his mouth. His Grill has been one of the flashiest ones I think I have ever seen but a few days ago the artist posted a picture of his new pearly whites grill free. When it comes to artists having grillz they have a few options. One option is to have a gill made that is removable. The grill can simply snap on and off the teeth. Is it easily removed when eating, sleeping or brushing teeth. The other option is to have the teeth permanently altered and crowns made that look like grillz are installed. This option is more permanent. Many artist feel this is the real way of getting a grill. Several years ago a trend of having a permeant grill swept America. Moneybagg Yo’s grill has always been dazzling in phots, videos and in person.

Even though sparking grillz are exciting and flashy, a lot of artists are going back to their white teeth. This is no easy task though. In order to go back all white teeth, new crowns that look like teeth are made. They are then swapped out in place of the old grill. The plus side to this allows the artist to have an unnaturally white set of teeth that look perfect. I would say that is the result of Moneybagg Yo’s trip to Columbia to get his new million dollar smile. His beautiful sparkling white teeth are just as eye catching as his grill was. Even though grillz are striking and beautiful. A set of pearly whites never go out of style.

Check out his new teeth at:

New York Fashion Week showcases some of the most cutting edge fashions currently out. Celebrities are always trying to wear a fashion that will have people amazed and the media talking. It is safe to say that hip hop artist Mariahlynn accomplished this task. Her amazing see through lace jumper was sparking with rhinestones. The design she entitled in a post as “Caged”. I think this was the perfect title to call the amazing design.

With the help of Kendra Boutique she matched the show stopping design with an extremely long blonde pony tail that was half straight and half curly.  The outfit “Caged” is a Amiri design and styled from Joe Exclusive. The design was absolutely breath taking in my opinion. It showcased the small frame of Mariahlynn and her show stoping personality. Her outfit was by far my favorite during NYFW. You can see more of her style by clicking the link below.

Jay-Z has responded to the claims that he and Beyonce were protesting by sitting through the National Anthem during this years Super Bowl. Jay-Z has explained this was not to protest the National Anthem. He also explained that his family and him were basically just watching the show. He spoke about some of the things they were talking about and thinking while the Anthem was on. This is what led to the not standing during the Anthem. He has spoken out in order to clear up any misunderstanding. It is good to know that the family was intently enjoying and watching the show. Often times celebrities are criticized for not doing everything that society expects. Celebrities are human and sometimes they are just simply enjoying the moment.

Yo Gotti has finally dropped his new album entitled “Untrapped”. The album has been long awaited. Was the wait worth it? I would say the wait was well worth it. The artist clearly poured his heart into this album. Yo Gotti expressed his reasoning for the wait in a instagram post that explained he didn’t want to take short cuts and he wanted his album to be real and felt by fans. Yo Gotti relates to his fans about real life in this album. The messages are raw and the insane lyrics are cutting deep to the hearts of its listeners.

Many hip hop fans and artists have made it clear that hip hop has lost its realness in its lyrics. Artists are mumbling and rambling with no direction in their messages. The music is not speaking to the listeners the way it once did. Although it has been entertaining, maybe it is time to bring realness back to the art of hip hop. Yo Gotti has captured this in the release.

The album “Untrapped” not only brings its fans real lyrics but is also brings fans 15 songs all unique and all have endless replaying power. The album features artists Lil Baby, Megan Thee Stallion, Moneybagg Yo, Rick Ross, Estelle and Lil Uzi Vert. The music video for the song “pose” ft. Megan Thee Stallion and Lil Uzi Vert is now out. The Album “Untrapped” can be dowloaded on all major music platforms.

The world is experiencing a devastating loss. Not only have we lost many athletes but have also lost children, parents, friends and mates. Kobe Bryant was excellent at inspirational quotes. His words can be read and heard all over social media. One of these quotes stood out for me and reads ” The most important thing is to try and inspire people so that they can be great in whatever they do”. The world has lost truly nine inspiring people. May Kobe’s words bring inspiration to more.
