If you’ve any of Mike Valli’s dishes, I’m sure you’ll agree with me when I say that they are nothing short of appetizing. It’s one thing to cook a delicious meal but totally different thing to plate the food into a complete beauty. Follow him on Instagram and you will understand exactly what I mean. I think it definitely takes talent to do what he does. His talent doesn’t stop there. He designs chef cooks that are quite fashionable. Read the interview to find out about Chef and Artist, I must add-Mike Valli.

When Kidd Kidd stepped into the front of the New Orleans music scene he was determined to be heard. Kidd Kidd was one of the first artists signed to Lil' Wayne’s Young Money Records with members Gudda Gudda and T-Streets as the group, Sqad Up back in 2002.

Originally from the south side of New Orleans where he was introduced to the streets, Curtis Stewart aka Kidd Kidd had to find ways of survival. The gift of putting words together over an instrumental was his ticket out of his hostile situation. He chose to surround himself with people who would uplift him rather than pray for his downfall.

She’s dainty, down to earth and dynamic. Shvona Lavette holds many titles including actress, singer, model and wife, the list steadily developing. I was excited to meet with her and discuss her journey, her present projects and creative plans for the future. She has so much going on!
