Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson star in No Good Deed, the tale of what happens when a criminal escapes from prison and finds his way into an unsuspecting woman's home. We've seen this story before but with a full African-American cast, and no Tyler Perry involvement, it feels like a fresh idea and a worthy watch. Plus the stars make for pretty great eye candy, which I think the production team knew would be good for the big screen.


I was first introduced to Jhené Aiko on Kendrick Lamar's "Growing Apart." Her voice is gentle and somewhat tinged with a sultriness that often encroaches on cutting aggression. Aiko understands where to emphasize her voice, wrapping it around the lyrics to achieve a hypnotic mix of hip hop and R&B. Souled Out, the debut from the singer is made up of mid-temp melodies that emerge as freestyles, rather than songs. This is not a bad thing because Aiko has stated that her process of recording music is one of letting it unfold rather than rushing.

Originality is such a hard thing to come by these days that it’s no wonder you’ll see so many movies, TV shows and music that look and sound the same.
 When is the last time you heard a song or movie that you couldn’t compare to something else prior? Probably never. That doesn’t mean that originality or creativity has died, but just means that people have a brand new way of seeing things. One of the greatest movies of all times, Star Wars is often compared to Star Trek. They have forums of geeks and nerds sighting the familiarities between these two, I’ll save you the time and say that I’ve seen all the Star Wars series and none of the Star Trek franchise despite their many TV shows and spin-off movies but I'm aware of how they tend to overlap each other in some aspects.


Blacc Hollywood is the fifth studio album from Wiz Khalifa - the rapper known for creating chill songs about getting high and living the high life. Being more of a fan of his mixtapes because he seems to offer more impactful, heavy-hitting rhymes on those, listening to Blacc Hollywood solidified my opinion even further.


Fresh off the stage of the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, performing alongside Beyoncé, Alvester Martin—dancer, singer, and songwriter has been accustomed to a dim limelight for many years as a back up dancer for several top celebrities.  But it’s the bright spotlight he better get ready for!


Being born in the 90’s certainly touched the new up and coming triple-threat artist Jo’zzy aka @dopebyaccident in a special way. She’s the protégé’ of super producer Timbaland and a talented singer/songwriter/rapper. Not only is the 90’s an inspiration and influence, but a way of life for this 24 year old; whose real name is Jocelyn Donald. She says of new single “Tryna Wife”, “It’s just nostalgic music and only the beginning. Some of today’s R&B and Hip-Hop can be so watered down and cookie-cutter, but my style of music makes you think of the 90’s.”


 
 

 

 


The names Warren G and Allure Moscato typically don't sound like they go together. In all honesty, Warren G, the Hip-Hop veteran, who made a huge name for himself during a span where he helped create the G-Funk sound, isn't even known for making music that goes with the idea of sipping out of wine glasses. But there is a surprising connection between the "Regulator" and the moscato brand. Warren G is the face of Allure Moscato, a Bronco Wine Company liquor based in California and also available in pink moscato flavor.

Queen by Queen Latifah is the absolute opposite of most female perfumes. While the majority of them are sweet and delicate, Queen is very bold and powerful. The scent embodies the name in every sense of the word.
Long lasting, the scent is strong and slightly overpowering at first splash, indicating that not much is needed to make a final statement. Queen screams a strong and self assured woman has made her entrance. As the day goes on, Queen remains bold and alluring on the skin, but not overpowering. The fragrance lasts for hours and doesn’t need much upkeep throughout a busy day when you are trying to make that transition from board room to the afterhours play room.
While the bottle is a bit bulky for a woman’s perfume, with its studded heart in the center, it is very fitting for the fragrance. If you’re looking for the clean, mature and bold scent to last hours on end, Queen is definitely what you are looking for.

Reb’l Fleur is the new fragrance by the rebellious beauty, Rihanna. The fragrance is a light mixture of flowers which include tuberose, hibiscus and violet with a splash of coconut water.
With a light, subtle and airy smell, the fragrance is best worn during the day to leave you feeling fresh, sweet and delicate. While the smell is not overpowering, it strongly favors the scents of body sprays that one can purchase at Bath and Body Works, Victoria Secret and the like. Halfway through the day, the scent is all but nonexistent and requires several splashes in subtle areas to refresh.
Aesthetically, the bottle does not reflect the name or the artwork on the box that it comes in. While the spray bottle is slender and very feminine, I could do without the black and gold art around the bottle.
If you’re looking for a signature scent that will take you from the workplace into after hours without effort, this is not the fragrance for you.
