The End of the CD! What’s Next?

20140726-170158-61318664.jpg

When was the last time you walked into your favorite store and purchased a cd? How many CDs do you still own? I’m asking because lately I’ve been talking to music execs about what’s next? Cd sales are at an all time low and soon all CDs will be extinct besides your personal collection. Most people are downloading/stealing songs right to their personal devices. Will this mean iTunes and similar sites will have total control over sales in the future? how will the smaller mom and pop stores compete to sell online music?

Nicki Vs. IGGY

20140726-143909-52749431.jpg

Seems like Nikki Minaj is worried about losing her place as the TOP female Hiphop Artist. Lately she has been throwing a lot of shade towards IGGY from saying she don’t have to work hard for what she is getting credit for to saying T.I. is ghostwriting her songs to help her out. I just think that she don’t like sharing the spotlight and she is mad that ‘Fancy’ made the #1 spot on the charts. What do you think???? Leave a comment!

ALGIERS (Reuters) – Authorities have lost contact with an Air Algerie flight en route from Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso to Algiers with 110 passengers on board, Algeria’s APS state news agency and a Spanish airline company said on Thursday.

APS said authorities lost contact with flight AH 5017 an hour after it took off from Burkina Faso, although other officials gave other timings, adding to confusion about the fate of the flight and where it might be.

Spanish private airline company Swiftair confirmed it had no contact with its MD-83 aircraft operated by Air Algerie, which it said was carrying 110 passengers and six crew.

Would You Be Happy If Your Kids Grew Up To Be just Like You???

20140721-113106-41466757.jpg

This post isn’t to bash anyone or focus on the negative but I’m sitting here thinking about all the mess I’ve been through in my life and where I am now. I’m thinking about what if my son grows up to be like me. I would hate for his life to be like the old me but as I sit here thinking the old me helped me become the new me. The things I went through in life were important for me to grow. as I still continue to grow I look at all the bad that helped shaped my transition. IF IT WASNT FOR THE RAIN HOW WOULD I APPRECIATE THE SUN?
