INTERVIEW WITH DJ LANCE PART 2

Here is the rest of this dope, but informative interview with a special man by the name of Dj Lance, but better known to me as my dad!

In the part 2 of the interview Dj Lance speaks on his downfalls with drug abuse, how he overcame it, and how he enjoys still entertaining people except now it’s entertaining the spirit.

It’s surprising to see how much a person truly loves their craft and found a way to evolve in it while spreading positivity through it! being the oldest child, I can say that I have seen my dad at his greatest as well as his lows. One thing I always keep with me is the fact that as long as I am living, there is always a chance to become a better individual for not just me, but for my family too!

Check out the rest of the this great interview below and if you guys are on Facebook make sure to follow Dj Lance at Lance Bell!

New Music Fridays

Hey! It’s your girl, Mz Slimgoody back with my views on recent music releases that in my opinion…you should check out! this list won’t be long like my next “New Music Fridays” posts will be, but it’s never about the quantity, it’s always about the quality!!!

LIL KIM – 9

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

First off….all hail to the Queen!!! OMG!! I was so pumped when I found out that Kim was coming out with an album, and even more happier to hear that Kim is still good on the lyrics, and has a great ear for productions!! Like you can really bump her album with a good sound system to really vibe too. I definitely love the hidden artist features including Rick Ross, Rich The Kid, OT Genesis, and the City Girls!! This album is definitely something to keep on replay. Love you Kim!!!

WALE – WOW…THAT’S CRAZY

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

Wale truly put his whole body and soul into this album! From the beginning to the end this album never disappoints. Ya’ll should know that I LOVE Wale!! Wale seems to be one of those people that even after I think I read his first page…I have to keep reading page after page to truly know Wale, which can be a good or bad thing, but when it comes to his music…this theory is definitely a good thing!

GUCCI MANE – WOPTOBER II

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

The main reason why I am writing about this album is because I do love me some Gucci Mane! I am that down ass chick for those I truly fuck with and Gucci is that man in my head OK!!! Honestly…there was nothing on this album that gave me that old Gucci feeling from back in 2013, but what I do respect is how much he is putting on the new artists. For example, the track “Big Boy Diamonds” that features Kodak Black, seems to be Kodak’s whole track, plus he needs positive press anyways while he is currently serving time in jail. That is those types of examples showing how Gucci Mane gives love back even though he tried to start a whole beef with DJ Envy and Angela Yee from the Breakfast Club smh

KASH DOLL – STACKED

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

Let’s give a shout out to one of my favorite females coming out of Detroit! We’ve been hearing her name since 2012 or 2013, and now it’s 2019, and Kash Doll has finally dropped her first debut album!!! Her album “Stacked” has dope features including another one of Detroit’s pwn Big Sean, Trey Songz, Summer Walker, and Teyanna Taylor! A very upbeat album that also tells Kash Doll’s story too! In my opinion it’s definitely a must listen, and also placed on Billboards top 100 too!!

Here are the other dope new music releases to check out!

INTERVIEW WITH DJ LANCE

Recently I was blessed to interview a dj who I have always been inspired by musically, my father, DJ Lance.

My father’s djing career spans over 30 plus years! Even my first memories of my dad was him, his turn tables, and hella records! I could’ve interviewed any other Dj, but no one truly inspired me the most like my dad. Every one has a story and I wanted his story to be told from his beginnings in Akron, OH to his life now as Pastor Bell!

I definitely enjoyed hearing about the very first time he had a dj gig while stationed in Alaska! Believe me when I say from that very first gig, he blew up like smoke….literally!! LOL Check out part 1 of his interview below!!

Stay tuned for Part 2!!!

NEW MUSIC FRIDAYS

Hey guys! Im back with my introspective on some of the new music releases that has come out recently!! I hope all is well with everyone especially since summer is officially over, and if you are like me, you will be so glad see it back again next year! But, in the mean time check out some dope music to vibe to in the process.

COMMON – LET LOVE

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

One of the most sexiest males in rap history who is better known as Common dropped an album that truly had me see a different side to him. Like I felt as if I was seeing right thru him! I seen an interview that he did explaining that he his goal was to be totally transparent with this album. He mentioned that he has been seeing a therapist to help deal with his own past/current issues, and this album gave him the voice to truly put his vulnerability out there! Ladies, it’s not often that a man will be transparent with his thoughts,and since Common is such a talent when it comes to his lyrics, listening to this album will allow you to see this artist for face value. Dope album!

SIR – CHASING SUMMER

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

The label TDE is know for having talented artists like Kendrick Lamar, SZA, and Schoolboy Q just to name a few, and singer, SIR, is another one you can add to the list! I swear he reminds me of some of the late 90’s r&b artists who not only could sang, but also told familiar stories of relationships, love and heartbreak. What sets SIR out to be different is his delivery…make sure to pay attention to what he is singing about I bet you will love this album, and it will be on repeat!

LIL TECCA – WE LOVE YOU TECCA

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

Can you imagine being a regular teenager from New York than BOOM you drop a project that people like Dj Akademiks are speaking nothing but positive words towards it?? Well…I will say that’s Tecca’s life right now!! I literally never heard about him until he dropped this project. I will be paying attention now tho!! This project has dope beats and his delivery reminds me of that wavy music and I admit it’s lit!!

POST MALONE – HOLLYWOOD’S BLEEDING

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

Post Malone dropped this new project that I can already assume will be doing numbers especially once more singles from off the album start to be on regular rotation. You know that same formula he worked on his last album. While being a hater I just could not deny the fact that he makes hits! Everyone is not lucky to say the same. It’s too early to speak on what this album will do, but stay tuned and watch his magic flow.

CHARLI XCX – CHARLI

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

I love pop artists who love to collaborate with hip hop artists to create real dope ass music! Charli XCX is that type of artist who stays very consistent with that formula! This woman has worked with the Migos guys and the single still was LIT! I definitely love the album especially the album cover! I see you girl! Her album is something you can listen to with your kids in the car, and if you have teens they are most likely jamming right with you too! I can tell her subject matter has matured from the last project as well as a more rough around the edges type of style! I think she is all around dope, and her music and this album reflects that!

GASHI – GASHI

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

Gashi is a new artist that i believe will be gaining more clout going into the new year. He’s a New York artist, but his style sounds way more upbeat and energy driven. I can see him being a crowd pleaser as well has the hood clubs turn up captain in the summer. I truly like his energy! Hopefully he stays consistent so we can hear more of him in 2020!

BOOSIE BADAZZ – BAD AZZ DAY

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

Whoever told Boosie to hook up with producer Zaytoven was smart!! I am amazed that no one has told him this before. This whole project is dope! Boosie gives you his normal Louisiana bounce music while also dropping knowledge for the youngstas on other songs too! Y’all just do not understand that I am truly his fan, and I loved the fact that I had this project on repeat for almost 2 weeks straight!!! This project is definitely a must hear!!!

MAKE SURE TO FOLLOW ME ON ALL SOCIAL MEDIA SITES TO SEE MORE OF MY DOPEST PICS OF NEW RELEASED MUSIC!!!!

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.

New Music Fridays

Hey guys! It’s your girl Mz Slimgoody back with my reviews on some of the most recent New Music Friday’s releases!! I hope everyone is doing well…for me…I have my head filled all in music, and working on something new for the Mz Slimgoody brand so make sure to stay tuned!!!

Some of the music I am going to talk about in this post I had to go back and listen to more than once to gain a better perspective of these projects to give a real opinion. Starting with Uncle Snoop!! I call him uncle for I see him as my uncle in my head LOL came out with a dope project last month!

SNOOP DOGG – I WANNA THANK ME

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

Snoop’s album sounds like a self reflection as well as analyzing the present around him, and putting it into words. Of course Snoop already has a way with words that tells a vivid story so imagine a mature Snoop really breaking his thoughts down on dope beats makes a great project to me!

QUALITY CONTROL – CONTROL THE STREETS VOL.2

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

If you guys know anything about me you will know that I extremely love the Quality Control label from their structure, marketing, even production!! On this project it starts off with QC’s top hittas the Migos, Lil Yachty, and others..you will start to hear the newbies from the label towards the end of the album…mind you this album has over 20 songs! So you truly had to keep the patience to even get down to hear those tracks LOL Overall I love the project…It’s what I expected to hear from them even though I thought a Migos album would’ve came prior to this, at least this project will keep me patiently waiting until they do! Gucci Mane made a guest appearance on the project complete with dope beats, hard lyrical flow, and even hot girl summer anthems, QC will never lose!

RJMRLA – ON GOD

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

This man right here is tight with the flows, with straight West coast productions, but hard tho!! I swear I will not be quiet about him until I hear people in Cleveland playing his music LOL I was wondering when he was going to come out with something new for the last project was back in 2017!! Thank you RJ for shutting me up! RJ always seems to come with dope features, and with this project you can tell that he has grown or I should say lived life…enough life to have more stories to tell, but with depth starting with the first track “On God” allows you to get ready for a RJ that you didn’t hear from his other projects..oh no… he was making sure that not only his fans will know that he plans on staying!

YOUNG THUG – SO MUCH FUN

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

I swear there are some artists that no matter what they do…I see nothing wrong!! Young Thug is that guy! For the last year we have been getting to know his Slime partners from Lil Keed to Lil Gotit and others, but kept wondering when will Thugger drop?? God answers all prayers, and sent “So Much Fun”. This prject from beginning to the end is FUN! I mean if I was to throw a party I can add this album to my playlist and I swear the party will start to get LIT! I notice alot of people love the track that has Lil Baby featured on it. This project is truly a must listen, and has already been placed on the charts top 10!!!

BLAQ TUXEDO – BLAQ TUXEDO

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

This was my first time ever hearing of this group whose project is titled the same name as the group has gained a new fan. Sometimes when you think of 2 guys who seem to be an R&B duo actually come with dope content that everyone can relate to as well as very groovy… I swear you find yourself very intrigued! I started to stalk there Instagram pages an everything LOL I believe this duo may be around for awhile so stay tuned!
