IT’S NEW MUSIC FRIDAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Guess what??? It’s 6 days until my birthday Goodies!!!! My birthday is also the start of the Gemini season, which is also known as the best sign ever!! I can admit that due to this Coronavirus outbreak the thought of celebrating my birthday is like a love/hate thing right now. Yes, they do plan on opening restaurants for dining in, but I decided that I will have a small get together at my home, and fix a crab boil while I sip on some tequilas!!!! Usually I don’t even be home on my birthday, but I’m happy to still be alive celebrating a new year of life so think of me next Thursday. My cash app is $tinanita if y’all feel like showing ya girl some love for her birthday.

Future dropped a new project that I think is another meaning to him not drinking Lean anymore. Dope features that include: Drake, Travis Scott, NBA Youngboy and Young Thug gives this album something to anticipate, but still has a feeling as if something is missing. I realized what was missing….Future’s original style, music to turn up to. I know people will hate me for saying this, but I miss the music he made that I can see myself at someones after hours vibing off to. This album didn’t have me ready to shake my ass to…just none of that. All I did was listen to the lyrics and bobbed my head. Maybe a 2nd listen may help with my perception of the album. Just not now. IJS bring back my original Future Astronaut LOL
At first I thought that Polo G album was going to be as depressing as this rainy weather I am feeling, but I am proven wrong!! The Chicago native made sure to shout out deceased artist, Juice WRLD, who is also featured on the album as well as King Von, Lil Baby, and BJ The Chicago Kid. You will start to see the album turn up once you get to track 5 then it’s smooth sailing after that. I do appreciate Polo G and his stories that sound very relatable to the normal man.
Deante Hitchcock first album has me smiling. He really put his all into this project, and it delivers that same energy back to it’s listeners. I can guarantee that this album will stay on repeat especially with dope features from JID, Young Nudy, 6lack and Miguel will have you thinking to yourself that this guy must be dope as well, and to be honest…he is.

IT’S NEW MUSIC FRIDAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What it do Goodies??!!! Singing…it’s the first of the month, cash yo checks and get up!!! I am feeling great today, and its the month of May!! For those who don’t know, this is my birthday month. My bornday is on the 21st, which is also the first day of the dual sign Gemini. Fun fact, I have the same birthday as the legend the Notorious B.I.G., singer Ronald Isley from the legendary group The Isley Brothers, and even famous wrestler & actor Mr. T!!!! #bossshit

Drake decided to bless us with some music while we wait on his project which is coming out sometime this summer. This project is litty! It has some old music as well as a couple of new joints. If you are still having Playboi Carti withdrawals…he is featured on one of the dopest tracks “Pain 1993” that I swear you will have on repeat like 5xs LOL
Mozzy is one of the best artist from the west coast. His music not only gives me a front seat in the eyes of his life or what he has seen around him. This album is one to really vibe to. Once everyone is done with the Drake rush…Mozzy will be next to chat about. He deserves a conversation…don’t y’all think so? This project has features with G Herbo, King Von, and Eric Bellinger to list a couple. The track featuring both Chicago artists on “Body Count” is a banger.
JoJo has one of those type of voices that makes me think she is something or someone else. Basically a small compliment saying that she can SANG!! LOL With a feature from Tory Lanez, this new project has a few female anthems to chant along, some club joints I can shake my ass too, as well as some tracks that makes me think of my bae. Overall, I feel like she has matured since her last project, and it shows.
Terrace Martin new project is literally a vibe!!
Flint, Michigan needs to stand up!! Artist Jon Conner is a whole talent and vibe all wrapped up in one. His whole album is fire…every song doesn’t sound alike, and his flow is dope af, and has dope features like “Work of Art” with DJ Paul. This is definitely a must listen as well as a honorable mention.

IT’S NEW MUSIC FRIDAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Whats up my goodies!? Hows everyone doing during this quarantine? So far, I am staying very grateful that I have my health and family by my side, and am able to work from home. Even if things aren’t going how you would wish things to go right now, just know I got all of y’all in my prayers, and please believe that hard times will not last always!!!
Now…let’s get into this week of nothing but dope as releases! OMG…I live for these days LOL Music is great for the soul. Speaking on how music is great for the soul…my fav…K Camp dropped today with an album that is definitely worth the listen. I’ve been rocking to K Camp since 2012…Im a mixtape girl, and it was a single that the Atlanta native was featured on and I used to play it out LOL then he dropped his project in 2013 that literally was getting played out at all the spots I used to hang at. Singing “It aint nuttin to cut a b***h off” was my normal thing to do around that time!! A true artist who gets better & better with each project he puts out, and Kiss 5 is a must listen in my opinion.
Kali Uchis has me ready for a new project, and the cover to this ep has me feeling like I am alive just staring at it!! Please dont keep me waiting too long for your album beautiful!!
Now yall now on every 4/20, Wiz Khalifa always drops a weed smoking project, and he made sure to come thru with that pack for the holiday! Get Lifted!!!
Fivio Foreign has a sound reminiscent of deceased rapper, Popsmoke. I see that drill sound is really taking over NY right now. Foreign’s project sounds like I took Popsmoke’s manuscript and added his voice to it LOL I do like his flow and that’s what will carry this artist until he develops his own drill style.
For Jackboy to be signed to Kodak Black’s label, for one, you can definitely hear the connection, but Jackboy has one hell of a flow that will grow on people plus be a reminder that Kodak Black will be home soon. I love the fact that his project his a self titled one…it gives the listeners a chance to judge his album with an unbiased thought.
Asher Roth always comes with good music to listen and vibe to, and he made sure sure to stay consistent with his new project. One of my favorite singles on the project is the album titled track Flowers On The Weekend. The project also includes a dope ass feature with Lil Yachty that will have you looking at him different for he came with a delivery that we are not used to hearing.

Instead of just sitting still, check out these new releases! Me, I had my own listening session while working from home, even my kids listened to a few of the new tracks from Dua Lipa, who I think is one of there favorite artists. Partynextdoor dropped his album FINALLY, and it doesn’t disappoint, but I suggest listening to it about 2 times before coming with your own perspective on the album. Keeping on with the vibe, Jessie Reyez, new project is really nice! I love how her voice sounds on all her songs, and features with Eminem and 6Black are dope too! Ari Lennox has me ready for a whole new album from her…she’s super dope and I love her voice as well!! Doja Cat’s rap on the “BMO” remix is too lit!!

New Music Fridays

We’ve only been in the month of March for one week, and out of nowhere it’s an explosion of some pretty nice projects that I bet you will enjoy! First off….LIL UZI VERT FINALLY DROPPED!!! If you’re a fan of Uzi Vert like me, you’ve been waiting for this day for the last two years like DAMN IT MAN! I found myself playing all of his previous projects like Love is Rage or The Perfect Luv Tape just to keep him in mind, but then Lil Baby drops his sophomore album and guess who’s featured on one of the hardest songs on the album?? So needless to say that Lil Uzi Vert has made my day…thank you!
My queen of all the songas about fuck boys, Jhene Aiko, released her new project Chilombo….for those who may not have known, Chilombo, is her last name. She’s another artist whose music has been missing from my life. Do yall know how hard it is to find the perfect song when your man has pissed you off? Jhene Aiko’s music is always on time especially when I am in one of those moods.
For all of my Bankroll Fresh fans…make sure to check out his new posthumous album In Bankroll We Trust. This month marks the 5th year of his untimely death, and his fans will always stay shouting out RIP Bankroll Fresh!!!
King Von, Yung Mal, and Jay Whiss are my “Must Listen” of the week.

Long Live Kobe Bryant

One of the United States greatest basketball players, Kobe Bryant, tragically passed away in a helicopter crash yesterday.

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

A total of 9 people passed in this terrible accident. I am still in shock about it myself! Kobe is in my age group. I am a mother of 3 children with one on the way, and I can not imagine having to bury my partner and child at the same time.

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

Sad incidents such as this really makes you analyze your life and the people who are involved in it. I bet Kobe and everyone who was on that helicopter woke up on Sunday only looking to attend a girls basketball game. It makes you realize that when we get up in the morning getting ourselves ready for work or school that we may not make it back home to our loved ones.

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

I decided that I could’ve spent my time just going in on Kobe and his legend status, but he was not the only one who passed. I feel so much remorse for not only Kobe’s family, but for the other lives who were lost too! I too have dealt with losing very close people in my life some whose death I knew was coming eventually due to long term illnesses, while the others were so unexpected.

During a time where mental health is being stressed, I just hope that everyone takes this time to grieve, and to take into consideration that even though a lot of us have never met Kobe, his daughter, or the other families involved, does not mean it did not touch our hearts or make us hug our own kids real tight. I know for me, I have to give myself atleast 5 years to really grieve. I remember when my god sister passed from complications due to Lupus it took me about that much time just to be able to speak about her without shedding a tear.

Losing a loved one does add a void in your life. I chose to always remember the greatest in a person or to reminisce on the fun times that I will always treasure. Like Kobe, I can remember when he took singer, Brandy Norwood, to prom back in 1996. Or how he was one of the first people to get drafted into the NBA right out of high school like LeBron James. Or the one year the Lakers and the Philadelphia 76ers were in the 2001 NBA finals, Kobe found his self going head to head with Allen Iverson, who was also drafted in the NBA the same year as him.

Just so many memories, that I know we all will treasure forever. Always remember that what we all have in common is that everyday is granted to us. Make sure to give people their praises while they are alive, and to cherish this day like it is your last!

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.”

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

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.

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

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!!!

For more information make sure to follow us on all social medias @clevelandfusion to keep up with updates & any cool events the team is sponsoring.
