The Grammys went down LAST NIGHT in NYC and there were a lot of CHEERS and JEERS!  JAY-Z was nominated for 8 awards–sadly he won NONE– but still was a good sport and CLAPPED for the winners.  His precocious daughter, Blue Ivy, didn’t appear quite as GRACIOUS..

 

The cute kid appeared to SHUSH her SUPERSTAR parents as they enjoyed the show from the audience! -lol.

Blige was on the roster and TORE THE HOUSE DOWN!  Let’s go back to her UPBEAT version of ‘Reminisce’! Continue reading WAKE UP JAM: #MaryJBlige ‘Reminisce’ #MTV Uptown Unplugged [vid]

Moods & Moments: #KendrickLamar ‘LOVE’ [vid]

love-kdot-thegamutt

LOVE/LOST
Do you even
Just to get even
Do you want?
Want what I want?
Only for the now
Do you know what
I need
Lost.

Do you you even love me
I need to love me like
I want to be loved
Am I in the way
The space is occupied
I went to the window
An asked do I qualify
I want to be with you
Just not all the time
Lost.

Cold
The air is cold
The vibe is cold
You tried to talk
But all I do is scold
Selfish
Falling all over
Falling in and out of
Love.
Lost.

Hot and heavy
But after the 3rd
It’s tense again
Then the 5th it’s
Off.
Completely off.
Leave my sight
Then panic
It’s a fight or a flight
Games.
The games we play
With no regard
The directions made up as we go
Past go.
Get no
Get none
No love
Lost.

You know me
The worst me
And sometimes the best
The secrets you keep
I know some too
I be looking for you
You looking for me
But trust not
Want not
No love.
Lost.
Just lost in the sauce
The glaze of it all
The gaze before the fall
Then you threw it all away
Tore the hem before the fray.
Ran it away
Sexed it away
Blew it away
Tucked it away in the big book on the farthest shelf
Where the dust falls…
I just ran away.
Ran away from
Love.
Just
Lost.
—–Zam Zhinga

Just something that came organically from my mind while listening to ‘LOVE’ by K-Dot, so I ran with it and THAT was the outcome…  Let’s MELT INTO THE NIGHT with the MOODS & Moment jam of the day…. Continue reading Moods & Moments: #KendrickLamar ‘LOVE’ [vid]
