Forget that I've known Ogun for like 13 years. Forget that my brother Street Scott produced and is featured on a song on the CD. Forget that I got a shout-out on song #9. Forget all that. This is the most solid body of work Ogun has put out to date! The original songs that he has up to this point would make a great album ("GO LONG" better be on there!!!). From running around with him and Street on a mini tour of sorts, I've heard a few of these songs during the performances. And finally getting to hear a CDQ version of Stardom! Real Life is dope....the song and the beat...produced by Traum. Goon's verse on Why You Acting...dope. That B A-A-A-A-A-A L-T-I! that should be an anthem. Although the CD version seems to be different from the version is was used to. And the brother always has a few uplifting songs on a project for the ppl to feel good. If this is the product that he comes up with in his "Spare Time," imagine what he could do in Prime Time!

Another spot myself and my bro encountered was Andy Nelson's. Named and owned by a former Baltimore Colts Football Player, Andy Nelson's serves up great down home style BBQ. The service was fast! The food was moist, flavorful and just delicious. I don't even like corn in my cornbread but this stuff was great! The chicken fell off the bone as soon as I picked it up! I only got the pit beef because they were out of Beef Brisket at that time. But I must say that it was paper thin and super moist. The only annoyance was the flies! It's kind of an indoor outdoor establishment so the flies get in pretty easy. Next time I'll just get it to go.

I have that bookbag -- mine is black and the seams are busted which is pretty odd since I'm sure he carries way more stuff than I do. But.....this Black and white shot interview follows Diplo (Dj, Farmer, Paleontologist) through his travels, ventures and events. It's short but cool. And he is pretty funny.

This is the story of the birth of Facebook and the death of friendships. This movie is shot brilliantly and the dialogue is Gilmore Girl-esque but not as annoying. What I like about the film is that its oddly so current. The movie opens in 2003 and follows Mark Zuckerburg's journey into becoming a Billionaire. It involves blatant (although much better received and way wider thinking) idea theft, alienation, a crazy Asian chick, the guy that started Napster, and ALOT of Lawyers. It's hip, it moves fast and its educational. I learned about the guy that started Victoria's Secret (SAD). The lighting of the club that displayed on Justin Timberlake's face during the aforementioned scene wonderfully makes him look sinister and devilish. Very smart! Good real life movie.

"This song was written and sung by me Nova Starz. Produced by Street Scott formally known as Street Heat. The tone of this song is similar to every ones favorite "So High" most of the songs on my project will have the same tone and feel, dark, sexy, with deep emotion. I changed the title of my project to "dARk lOvELy PlaceS" because the songs I have created are far from glamorous."
This is Nova Starz newest song "Cruisin'" produced by and featuring Street Scott from her newly retitled album dARk lOvELy PlaceS.
As much of an avid Street Fighter fan as I am...these joints are wack!! When you think about "Ryu Dunks" -- Capcom x Nike, that seems like a big deal. These flop harder then fish outta water. The best ones are the Akuma dunks, but even they leave much to be desired. Nike do me a favor...re-release the Air Yeezy and let this never happen again!
