PODCAST REMOVES T.I INTERVIEW [NEWS]

T.I Podcast

T.I has received major backlash for remarks he recently made on the Podcast “Ladies Like Us” regarding his 18 yr old Daughter’s visits to the Gynecologist.

The Atlanta rapper and entrepreneur stated he makes sure his daughter’s hymen “Isn’t broken” and went on to explain a time he went with her for a check up.

“So it’s this one time we go, I think this might have been after her 16th birthday,” he explained in audio captured by TMZ. “This is what we do… Usually, like the day after the [birthday] party, she’s enjoying her gifts. I put a sticky note on the door: ‘Gyno. Tomorrow. 9:30.’ So we’ll go and sit down and the doctor will come and talk and the doctor’s maintaining a high level of professionalism.”

As a result, the women who conduct the podcast Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham have taken the episode down and issued an apology for not properly handling the situation.

“To everyone confused, angry and hurt by the recent episode of Ladies Like Us, we want to start off by saying that we sincerely apologize for our knee jerk reaction to the uncomfortable topic,” an Instagram post reads. “We were completely caught off guard/shocked and looking back, we should have reacted much differently in the moment.”

 Mandi and Moham continued, “The comments that were made and the reaction that followed are not in any way a reflection of our personal views on the topic. We support and love Women and feel that their bodies are theirs to do as they wish. There was absolutely no ill intent towards any party involved & feel deeply awful about the entire incident.

“We are not perfect, take full accountability of our lack of action & are continuously learning along the way. We know an apology doesn’t make this go away but we welcome the discussion – that’s what our podcast is about.”

The rapper has yet to respond but social media is in an uproar calling him controlling and narcissistic, I’m sure he will be making a remark soon.

Along with the iPhone, Apple also announced changes to the Apple Watch and iPad. The Apple watch, which is now up to its 5th series has been upgraded with minimal but key details such as one button International emergency calls and titanium face cases, including two titanium models in White and Space Grey. GPS models start at $399 USD while cellular models go for $499 USD. They will be available in an assortment of colors in over 150 countries.

Here are some key takeaways!

Apple TV+:

1 Year Free with New Purchases of Apple TV hardware $4.99 USD a month for family use Apple TV+ begins on November 1.

Apple iPad: 10.2” “Base Model” +Pro  Features.

Now coming at a bigger 10.2” size it’s closer to the iPad Pro’s 11. Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard compatibility, Port upgrades you can now use a SD Card and Flash Drive, game peripheral pairing and more! starting at $329 USD for the base model 32GB. The new iPad will be released September 30.

Apple iPhone 11: Six Vibrant Colors

The phone will come in 6 vibrant array of finishes  including: green, purple, yellow, white, black and (Product) RED.  The green comes in a very mint-like shade while the purple is much more sweet with a shade of grey within its 100% recycled aluminum.

Apple iPhone 11: Ultra-Wide Lens, “Slofies”

The iPhone 11 has three camera lenses, the new addition being the Ultra-Wide angle. The new lens is positioned vertically below the standard wide, but captures subjects within a highly-impressive 13mm equivalent focal length. With iOS 13’s new software upgrades, the new angle will allow for seamless integration with the iPhone’s camera app, along with the phone’s video capabilities as well. The front facing camera on the 11 also receives upgrades — TrueDepth Portrait mode, 4K video, and slow-motion selfies a.k.a “Slofies,”

Apple iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max: Four Camera System

Professional photographers will particularly enjoy the new camera system. The three cameras positioned on the back can seamlessly switch from the phone’s standard 26mm “wide” lens, to a telephoto 2x 52mm “telephoto” to the updated “ultra-wide” focal length at 13mm. The lens undoubtedly  fantastic.  Lines remain sharp and straight, with no visible curvature commonly found in fish-eye lenses. The lens remains relatively fast at f/2.4 but for low-light photos it’s better to keep the standard wide lens which is brighter at f/1.8. Outdoor daytime landscape photos however will look epic with the new ultra-wide lens. Apple’s new products are sure to keep Apple heads happy, for the next year at least 😉

-BOOM

Oh and for all my New Yorkers the Apple Fifth Avenue Store in New York will reopen on September 20.

MUSIC: SkyZoo Releases Single “It’s All Good” From New Album Retropolitian

Brooklyn Lyricist @Skyzoothewriter has dropped the first single “Its All Good” off his latest project  Retropolitan. The highly anticipated forthcoming collaborative project with Legendary Hip-Hop Producer @RealPeteRock. The track screams classic New York Boom Bap and has Rock’s signature written all over it!  According to an interview with Billboard, Sky knew “within 10 seconds” of Rock pressing play he wanted to use the beat for the cut.

Rock States,  “The crazy thing about this beat is that I made it in ’94,’” . “This beat is 25 years old. I never retouched it or re-did it. It came out of the SP-1200. This was when I was making ‘The World Is Yours’ and those sessions.’”

Sky exclaimed “It’s a New York album, but whether or not you’re from New York, you’re going to love it,” he explains after touching on Rock’s everlasting prime of a career in music. “If you love hip-hop, lyricism, and incredible beats, you’re going to love what you’re hearing. [It’s] storytelling and production but it’s not dated.

Retropolitan was recorded in just two weeks at the top of 2019, which was when the 12-track project was originally announced. The joint effort has remained in the mixing stages until they felt it reached perfection for listeners. Simply put, the 36-year-old describes Retro as a “love letter and wake up call to the city.”

The Project is set to be released September 20th and as a fan I personally cant wait…. Stay Tuned!
