FOOTBALL IS NOT JUST A SPORT IT’S A FAMILY

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Have you ever wondered why a woman would want to play in such a rough sport such as football? Or wondered what do these women get out of being part of the Cleveland Fusion?

Look no further!! We got members of the team to express their real thoughts and feelings on how they truly feel about playing for the Cleveland Fusion. According to one of the Fusion’s centers, Sophia Pagan, the reason she plays football is ““Football will introduce you to lifelong bonds. It’s an experience like no other. It’s more than football. It’s family.”

What Sophia said is exactly the feeling we want to spread amongst the team. The feeling as if everyone is a family and is willing to work together as one to accomplish a common goal. Mind you, everyone that comes together to make the teamwork all come from different parts of the globe with the dedication to push women’s football forward!

Roxi Valdina, player #18, stated “I play to be the best version of myself. Mentally, physically and emotionally. Football has all these things at once. And the person I see when I rise to the challenge is someone, I want to be proud of. So, I give my all. For myself and my team.” We all know that playing football is not an easy sport. It can be very stressing physically as well as mentally. When picking the best team, I would suggest going for a team who puts their all into making sure that each member is ready physically and mentally and will teach anything that is needed in all regards to the game prior to getting on to the field.

Per Quarterback Cassie Brown, “I play for the young girls who think they can’t. I play football so I can continue to build the family I have because of the sport. I play football to prove everyone else wrong.” And Running back #27, E. Lewis, also states ““Football has revealed my character as a woman on and off the field. It’s about the TEAM, the COMMITMENT, the JOURNEY. To be better than you were yesterday. Most importantly to conquer the one sport they once thought would remain only for man.”

I do not know how much more motivation you need. These women who all come from all different walks of life, ethnicities, and backgrounds all have one common goal which is to prove that women can be football players too and can still lead their regular lives when the game is done! It’s you that must believe that you can do it too!!!

New Music Fridays

On August 23, 2019 was one of the best days for new music. The reason why I say that?? OMG!!! It had nothing but great and the most anticipated releases I can say for the year, and as I list them I bet you an 100 that you will think so too! I mean literally from every genre it was nothing but dope ass music released!!!
Let’s start with one of my favorite groups of million men Brockhampton!

BROCKHAMPTON – GINGER

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

You can not beat a group that’s filled with nothing but guys who literally are dope ass lyricists, and anytime they drop a project it is literally worth the listen. The album “Ginger” may not hold up to their previous project, but I still enjoyed it never the less. I truly love when the production does not overshadow the voices telling a story. As a listener I feel that you can overall get what you expected from this album.

MISSY ELLIOTT – ICONOLOGY

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

What can I say about Missy “Misdeamenor” Elliott???? OMG…the fact that I am truly a fan and has been one since the 90’s. The fact that I was one of the first people in line at the music store waiting to buy her first solo debut back in the fall of 97…yes…I am completely dating myself but so whaaatt!!! Thaty woman deserves it all! From artist, to songwriter, to producer, to innovator, to just being a dope person overall she is the epitome of what I had aspired to be back as a kid…a song writer/producer. This Ep included only 4 tracks, but to have not heard anything new from Missy in a few years, literally was a breath of fresh air! Trust me when I say that when a person has mastered there craft, regardless of how long it seems that they have been away, when they return, it feels like they never left!

RAPHAEL SAADIQ – JIMMY LEE

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

One of the original member’s from the group Tony, Toni, Tone also the group Lucy Pearl even was featured on Alicia Keys classic “Diary” the list goes on and on of the classic work Raphael has put in! Just like Missy, this man has many talents too which sustained him for all this time! Mind you his original group came out in 1989!! This new album “Jimmy Lee” tells a story of a man who is going through some ups and downs in his life, but the way Raphael constructed this album you would think that it was just a jazz piece..oh no! It’s a story told from the soul, and I believe that some parts of it is a true recollection of Raphael’s memories of one his older brother who is currently deceased.

RAPSODY – EVE

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Can I just put it out there that this is a Grammy winning album already?? I am just saying LOL Rapsody literally made an album with each song titled, and spoken about powerful Black women!! Ladies Stand Up!! I can not stress how much I truly believed that the year of 2019 is for the women, and this album proves all of it! From the surprising features like J. Cole and Queen Latifah to how Rapsody lyrically breaks down her thoughts very meticulously about each individual truly had hit my soul. Do beleive that this album has been played literally too many times in my car so for right now I had to give it a break!! LOL

I can go on for days about the rest of the albums that was released that day, but I do not want to bore you guys! Check out the rest of my picks below.

Pompano Runna Interview

On the last episode of Hit or Miss Sundays Ms Cream, Dj Raven, Dayson, and I had the pleasure to have artist, Pompano Runna, as a featured guest on our show! During the interview we listened and voted on three dope tracks that sounded completely different from each other, but allowed us to feel the many depths of Pompano. On the track “Cool Young Nigga” I swear we all voted the track as an “hit” all at the same time. I could imagine deceased rapper, Bankroll Fresh on the track. The other 2 tracks we played, “Dedicated” and “Drippin” are dope too! We did have a moment mimicking his Florida slang LOL me and Cream kept saying “whoop de whoo” LOL

Pompano dropped some real gems during the interview to pay attention to, and even tho he rocks out like a rock star, he speaks well enough to be taken serious & to be understood. I have a feeling that we will be hearing more from this artist very soon!! Check out the rest of the interview below!

Make sure to follow Pompano @pompanorunna_ on all social media platforms!!

Just last Monday, he had the chance to showcase his skills for the WNRV 108.1 World Famous Club Style show which was held at the Nerve Djs Studio!! This live event was hosted by Cleveland’s own Casper Cee, Telace, Tasha Beatz, one of my favorite Djs, Dj Ellery, and Shonny Shon!!!

NEW MUSIC FRIDAYS

Hey guys!! It’s your girl Mz Slimgoody and I am back with my list of new releases to check out!!! I have a new way that I will be posting about the new music releases that I like, and I hope you guys will love it, so make sure to stay tuned!!! Trust…that you will be seeing more of my lovely face!!

Now, lets get into this list!!! Since July came in I can say that majority of the music has been pretty lit providing hella fun energy into any situation. Beyonce did a great job with the soundtrack to The Lion King even Blue has made history by being the youngest person to contribute to an album!!! That deserves a major shout out!! Iggy Azalea finally dropped her project since 2014!! It’s not my particular vibe , but very high energy packed with a couple of twerking songs gives the album a decent vibe. Yella Beezy has a nice project especially the song that features Chris Brown on it, y’all do know that anything with Chris Brown on it is guaranteed to make somebody’s charts. I was shocked to find out that the rapper Cassidy had dropped a project, and even more shocked to hear that he still got it!! I was on his Instagram the other day just in awe that he still has the persistence to keep going with dope lyrics to match.

I am a new fan of Burna Boy…he makes that type of African music that resonates with my age group or even younger! I love the vibe of his album, like I can not imagine being in a bad mood while listening to his album. A guy to whom I never heard of before, who goes by the name, NF, has a really nice album out, and I just heard today that he his numbers are pretty high to be somewhat unknown, but once you hear his album you can see why his streaming levels are high! E40 dropped a dope project as if he was back in his prime!!! All the tracks are dope, and he got hella features from some of your favorite artists which makes his album even more enjoyable!

Check out all the other new music releases!!!!
