Flavor In The Street

Hello World! Flavor In The Street was something I wanted to do, because I felt I had grown since my previous websites. I feel like I was seeing blogging from a different perspective. At one time, I saw this as more of something I did for fun, and I still continue to see blogging as this, but I also have grown a passion for it. I'm getting a platform, where I get to fully express my views on topics in music. I feel like my opinion is rarely heard, and I want to be viewed as the voice of my generation soon. We never get a platform to talk, and it's now just the beginning. 

The idea of Flavor In The Street was just to restart my brand. I had gotten the idea of the title from one of my favorite shows, "Living Single" along with the slang, 'Word On The Street.' As many of you know, Khadijah James had owned a magazine company titled, "Flavor." I got the idea by combining the two, which later birthed 'Flavor In The Street.'

I'm quite a hard-working kid. I manage to keep my grades together, while running this blog. I've never quite looked into adding more writers to help grow the brand, but of course I'm open to trying new ideas. I plan to adventure quite a lot when I get older, and my taste in music varies.

Migos and Joe Budden Get Into Altercation at 2017 BET Awards

Migos were involved in a altercation on Sunday night at the pre-show of the BET Awards. The rap trio were being interviewed by the hosts of “Everyday Struggle.” The exchange that led to the clash began with Everyday Struggle co-host DJ Akademiks. Akademiks described the absence of Takeoff on Migos' breakthrough hit,“Bad and Boujee” as a running joke. “You said I’m left off ‘Bad and Boujee?’ Does it look like I’m left off ‘Bad and Boujee?’” A bothered Takeoff says to Akademiks. Tension arises as co-host Joe Budden repeatedly tells Akademiks to "wrap up" the interview, to which Quavo responded, “Wrap it up then.” A few moments later, Budden chucked his microphone to the ground and walked away from the set of the interview. Quavo, Offset and Takeoff quickly rise from their chairs one after the other. “What you trying to do,” an offended Quavo can be heard asking. Members of Migos' entourage and security arrive to the scene.

Watch the interview below:

Listen To Usher's New Club Banger, "Still Got It" ft. Migos + Focues On Backlash From The Media:

Earlier, Usher teamed up with Migos for a track titled, "Still Got It." Now, let me just be clear, and say, like many of others who visit this blog, I don't know who Migos is, and before you press play, this new track, "I Still Got It" won't be on Usher's album.

Now, I recently just listened to the track, because I was actually very curious to see how the track turned out, and I can't say I'm quite impressed. Clearly, this is more like a song set for the media, as Usher sings about how he still has it as an artist. Many, including me, know that Usher hasn't done so well lately on the charts, and based on his singles commercially. I think that Usher, personally has had many switch-ups as an artist, based on his sound, and I know I've said before, that I love when an artist goes for an organic route, because you want your listeners to have fresh material, and with this track, in general, it's your typical mainstream track.

Now, while this may be seen as a success commercially based on the production and lyrical content, it's not what his fans are looking for. He needs to target his audience, which prefers R&B, with a mix of Hip-Hop. Is it possible we'll ever get the "Confessions" Usher back? Most likely not, but I just want this to be a succeeding era for Usher. With the album being pushed back, it's like his label is setting him up for failure. I mean, they aren't giving him the time he deserves. Usher could bring something to the table, if everything was organized properly. I don't only speak for this single, but Usher's career in general.

Lambs, don't call me crazy, but I think Usher should work with Jermaine Dupri. (Once Again...) Just so everyone reads that clearly: I. THINK. USHER. SHOULD. WORK. WITH. JERMAINE. DUPRI. Even if most of Jermaine's work hasn't been a success lately, he knows how to deliver what the fans want, and on top of that, he worked with Usher on "Confessions," so I'm sure he'll help Usher find his direction as an artist. For proof that Jermaine Dupri is still a beast, at production and songwriting, check out his latest work on Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse. Now, for this single, it's a skip for me. I do still, really hope things get better for Usher's sound musically next year though. I'm sure he'll win me back, because I do plan to see what Usher has in store with his new album. Take a listen to "Still Got It" below: (It's Your Choice! I mean, I don't recommend it. You aren't missing out on much if you ask me.)

"Still Got It" is lifted off the upcoming Digital Trapstars and WeGlobal mixtape, 'Screens on Lock: 4th Quarter Press.'
