acting along with cudi and shannon sossaman is one of my favorite jewish actors, bryan greenberg, and funny man Luis Guzman.
i'm very interested in this new production.
enjoy the trailer, and lets hold TIGHT!
remembering no doubt, and moby. Lil bald dude and cool blonde chick.
I always thought he (moby) was some sort of guru.
But here is their video, "southside" debut in early 2000's i believe.
a film called, "Anti Christ" directed by Lars Von Trier
"When nature turns evil, true terror awaits."
made my heart rate go from normal to bizerk after watching this trailer.
its just that raw, and edgy, makes you ponder about alot of things.
realeased in early october, this is a film i look forward to watching very soon.

When I was a young girl,
I used to watch this show called
"New York Undercover"
I had a really big crush on
the 2 detectives, Williams and Torres.
I was so smitten on crime and action, the romance and of
course the ACCENTS!
made me wish that I could live in this city.
*they also had great music too.
(peep 112 singing an earth, wind and fire joint with the silky suits)
here's the clip of what I got to watch today.
this show really showed a really great side of new york,
along with the MUSIC.

ladies and gents
i present to you MALUCA
who is also a NY-dominican bombshell,
i saw her perform this song at SXSW last year at the fader fort.
and now lazlo from MAD DECENT has officially done the video.
i didn't understand too much of what she said but it sounded sexy as hell!
her fusion of dominica-tronica-ghetto-techno is what makes me go crazy!
production by diplo.

so it's official,
Philly MEGA producer, INTERNATIONAL pimp and DJ
(my baby's daddy)
DIPLO has decided to do a MIX to Gucci Mane's Cold War mixtape series, in support of the rapper's upcoming album The State Vs. Radric Davis. He is remixing the mixtapes in light of Gucci's recent legal woes.
I'm SPENT. only because now THIS should really boost
the cross genre we see taking place in music. in a good way tho.
I think DIPLO x GUCCI is something i look forward to because it gives a chance
for people of different likes of music to come together..
heres a link to listen to DIPLO's mix of Gucci mane's
"Danger not a stranger" mix-via maddecent blog.
i luh him.

just spoke volumes to me today.
By: Maya Angelou
A hater is someone who is jealous and envious and spends all their time trying to make you look small so they can look tall.
They are very negative people to say the least. Nothing is ever good enough!
When you make your mark, you will always attract some haters…
That’s why you have to be careful with whom you share your blessings and your dreams, because some folk can’t handle seeing you blessed…
It’s dangerous to be like somebody else… If God wanted you to be like somebody else, He would have given you what He gave them! Right?
You never know what people have gone through to get what they have…
The problem I have with haters is that they see my glory, but they don’t know my story…
If the grass looks greener on the other side of the fence, you can rest assured that the water bill is higher there too!
We’ve all got some haters among us!
Some people envy you because you can:
a) Have a relationship with God
b) Light up a room when you walk in
c) Start your own business
d) Tell a man / woman to hit the curb (if he / she isn’t about the right thing)
e) Raise your children without both parents being in the home
Haters can’t stand to see you happy.
Haters will never want to see you succeed.
Most of our haters are people who are supposed to be on our side.
How do you handle your undercover haters?
You can handle these haters by:
1. Knowing who you are & who your true friends are *(VERY IMPORTANT!!)
2. Having a purpose to your life: Purpose does not mean having a job. You can have a job and still be unfulfilled. A purpose is having a clear sense of what God has called you to be. Your purpose is not defined by what others think about you.
3. By remembering what you have is by divine prerogative and not human manipulation.
Fulfill your dreams! You only have one life to live…when its your time to leave this earth, you ‘want’ to be able to say, ‘I’ve lived my life and fulfilled ‘my’ dreams,… Now I’m ready to go HOME!
When God gives you favor, you can tell your haters, ‘Don’t look at me…Look at Who is in charge of me…’

i heard a lady by the name of ragen fykes who is another up and coming artist out of portland, oregon..(i couldnt point to it on a map) but she has released a 3-track LP, called "with love", that is something worth investing some ear time in.along with dj/producer ohmega watts, this duo is known as M64.i would say that these guys are definitely on yazzawatch!
check her out here: http://hernameisragen.tumblr.com/
went for a little drive today and vibed on some j.cole...HARD.
then i went on to listen even deeper to his rhymes and just kinda zoned in on life.
if u don't know about j.cole, he's THE FIRST AND THE FINEST member of rocnation
coming from fayetteville, north carolina.who graduated from college (on scholarship and magna cum lade) and pursued a career in nyc there after.
his mixtape "the warm up" released in June of 09 provides a very distinctive sound...it's actually RAP music.
and good rap music at that.what i mean is, you hear THIS man over his songs, no autotune, no guest appearances (i don't think).it's about the rawest form of poetry i could ever want for in rap music right now.since it's been kinda hard to find decent rap artists, i can truly say that's always a pleasure listening to him spit.
now mind you j.cole is educated and very explicit at the same time.Lol.but his forceful and meaningful tone just kinda makes you wanna submit to wait for the day his album comes..hail king cole.

i stumbled on an article about a houston native that
is turning some heads in the indie realm.
y'ppah, also known as Joe corrales is an electronic magnet,
and pretty suede dj.(shout out to cellar bar)
i had the pleasure of meeting him, and finding this
article on him quite interesting. he's currently signed to
Ninja tune records, and lookin at goin on tour soon with
a good frined of mine that goes by Polymath 7.when forces combine..
check some of y'ppahs music here:http://games.softpedia.com/progDownload/Alone-in-the-Dark-Near-Death-Investigation-Yppah-Music-Trailer-Download-26228.html

i was really tryin hard to resist writing about this,
but as a music patron, i kinda felt like this was the only way for me to get it out.
KID CUDI MAN ON THE MOON:END OF DAY
YAZZA'S REVIEW (DEEP BREATH/TAKES A STEP)
ok, first of all, if you are a RECENT cuddler fan (you only know about "day and night" and a kid named cudi mixtape) , or someone who just simply enjoys his style of music, you're definitely going to enjoy this album.
IF you are somewhat of a "cudi follower", "secrect lover" or FAN and feel like you really know this fella, its definitely gonna ease your spirits cause he's speakin to y'all.
I say, that this album is a great breakthrough attempt and a wonderful listening experience. Scott capitalizes on his vocal range throughout most of his tracks providing very catchy and alluring melodies with rhythmic hooks over these eccentric beats.
Plain, Dot, YEEZY, emile and everybody else who had a hand on this tracklist, I applaud you, and i applaud cudi for pickin such a great team to go in and give you that "moonish" sound. i would say futuristic..but its 09.and that term is kinda played out.
NOW the RAP factor of this album is kinda mediocre.if u dont know about cudi, u need to understand that he ISN'T in the genre of HIP-HOP, nor POP.he's just cudi..ya know?Lol. He's rappin from that skinty lil soul of his, so it's not too intricate and not too basic.its just right.if you understand where this man has come from and where he is NOW...you'll be alright.he has a few one liners, a few lip-biters, and a few that'll make u say "WTF...did he just say?"..seriously.
this is one of the most anticipated ALBUMS of 2009,(think about it) and I'm happy that he finally made it thru.SHIT.but this is one of the most honest pieces of pure sound and music i've heard inna minute. he spits some real shit in there, its up to you to determine how u wanna take it.cause at the end of the day, we're all just tryin to get our dreams.can u blame him?
hipsters, i plea to you to keep this in rotation, and to my indie vixens, invite you a super-boo over, get you some juano, drink some brewski and have some pillow talk and enjoy the man on the moon as you lift off..

(i love this picture btw)
at any rate, i was told to read up on an article about one of my favorite vocalist in the pop world collaboratin with one of my most favorite DJ/PRODUCER/BEECH I LUBMESUMHIM
people in the world that goes by the name of (drumroll please, make it lonnnnnnnng)
DIPLO??!! (i hopped outta my chair when i read it)
in this article here, we have a ms.christina aguileria talkin about talkin on her next album and who she brought in on some electro-reinforcements.
peep the article here:http://www.rollingstone.com/rockdaily/index.php/2009/08/31/christina-aguilera-talks-search-for-new-electro-sound-on-e-special/
<--you know u my baby daddy right?
mess this up
christina.or i will
find you, and throw paint on you...TRUE STORY.
But in all yazzaseriousity, im kinda lookin forward to hearing this collab, and hearing what the pop-people and the indies like myself have to say about this.i believe she will be unveiling a piece of the underground "hipster" culture that people like myself truly hold precious, because electro-dance-diplo music is so moving to me, and not alot of people around here really understand this kind of music.it will DEFINITELY put a new mark on pop (anythang my baby dip touches is afro-gold) and christinas voice is like no other.santi, m.i.a, sia, le tigre are also in on this too...I'm crossing my fingers, and keepin one eye open on this....

but i stumbled across a guy who is making himself known in the industry as far as video
direction goes. he's worked with the kardashians, to j cole, to busta buss and even the cudder.
i enjoy his style of cinematography along with his smooth transitional editing.in my book, he captures music video production with a very big vision and maximizes on a small budget. LOL. three cheers for bbgun.
if you know yazza,
you know that she loves her some janet.
here we have ms. jackson on the cover of harper's bizarre,
and speakin on the death of her brother, single life, kids, marriage,
and her future projects.without janet, none of these hoes would exist.
(there i said it)
check the interview here:http://www.harpersbazaar.com/magazine/feature-articles/janet-jackson-interview-1009
i have discovered another article that has inspired
and motivated yazza.
this article was from a man that goes by the name of 20+1
very informational piece about hip-hop music, and some artists that i have yet to know about but will very soon listen to.
here it is..enjoy!
"Hip-hop" is about as useful a descriptor as "rock" or "socialist" these days. Everything from deliberately incomplete, over-indulgent instrumental noodling (bismilldilla) to gentrifying-skinny-jean-fuckboy theme music can trace its roots back to some Bronx kids in the '70s who just didn't know any better.
I begin on that negative note because nothing's more hip-hop than complaining about hip-hop and the cream of the crop hasn't given me any good reason to stop in 2009. Jigga's Brett Favre. Nas is noodling with a reggae album while his ear for beats is still playing wingman for Pac somewhere in Havana. I guess Andre 3000 still thinks being a bad actor is more fulfilling than making Stankonia was and Jeezy dropped a banger late last year so he's off the hook for now. Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 2 and BlaQKout are damn good albums but they're dignified throwbacks by un-semiretired generals filling up the tank one more time. Dr. Dre sure won't save us or whatever Detox is supposed to accomplish (and I am so Richard Dawkins about that)."
he pretty much gets it in on his blog, and talks about artists attempt to "change the game"

i've come to realize all that glitters aint gold, and if its shiney u might
needa put it in some "heat". moral of the story is some people are cubic zirconia flea market pebbles, while others are simply diamonds in the rough. its up to you
to dig, dig really well, and when "looking closely at the specks, ridges, and facets can also give you a clue into the identity of your gem. Diamonds do have inclusions, tiny bits of other minerals that got crushed into the diamond while it formed deep under the earth." real friends are like diamonds man..its all i can vouche for. they may not be perfect, BUT you'll know when its real.
im not here to blast on anybody, nor to put anybody out there.this is your path.you chose this route.we're all human, and i dont hold no grudges.yazza aint no dummy.
But in all seriousness, a series of events took place, which REALLY put alot of things in perspective for me, as far as how i viewed people, and what i expected out of them, yea i did some things that I normally wouldnt do, but, shit happens. u know me, u know who i was before this. so therefore im gonna continue to be that same person and im still in school and goin to another school, but in a different environment, at a different pace, with a WHOLE BETTER MINDSET.
i will be back to pv next year,but for right now, at this very second, im focused on my school, my craft, my path, my family and my friends, and this little light of mine, I'm about to let it shine.
So i'll catch u on the flip, and i hope years later we can all laugh at this and move on.but until then i'll see you at the finish line. i love you all.

so...u really wanna have a good time?
blast off to cubic zirconia.
here's a pic of their EP, London mixtape VOL.1
check em out in urbmag:
"The new quartet which includes the playfully sexy Tiombe Lockhart, best known for her vocals on tracks for the Hip Hop band PPP, and electro/funk musicians Nick Hook and Todd Weinstock, formerly of Men, Women, and Children, and Daud Sturdivant, filled Santos with an eclectic mix of music heads, hipsters, fashionistas, and dancers, for an also eclectic show. The evening featured live DJ sets by Afro-beat head Chico Mann, Mike the 2600 King, Kool Hersh, DJ Assault, and Stones Throw’s Dam Funk to bring that galactic funk. Head Automatica was the opening band that gave an explosive electro punk performance to amp the crowd. Expect more ridiculously crazy and fun nights when Head Automatica and Cubic Zirconia tour this summer. "-via urb.com

"FYI this movie used to be called just Push but it's official title is now Precious: Based on the Novel "Push" By Sapphire,which is really real. You know Sapphire got real pissed she wasn't getting her due and went to town and things got gnarly and someone had to agree to get her a credit in the title to get her to calm down and let the movie come out. Fierce! You know who else isn't getting credit? Mariah Carey! Did you know she was in this? This was just the "Mo'nique as a crazy abusive jerk" movie? Mimi is in this shit! And Lenny Kravitz, but he's not in the trailer."
GO SEE.im truly inspired.

Nike Womens Air Max 1 Metallic Silver/Turquoise
This sneaker uses a predominately metallic silver upper with minimal hints of turquoise on the inner lining, eyelets, shoelaces amongst other places. Coinciding with the turquoise accents is a fresh turquoise midsole combined with a grey outsole. Could this be one of the better Nike Air Max 1 colorways of the year?
