Music Feed: The 2014 BET Hip Hop Music Awards

BET's much hyped about Hip Hop Music Awards aired tonight, October 14. The award show, which was prerecorded a few weeks ago(take note BET Awards) honored those in Hip Hop and included cyphers from veteran and upcoming rappers. The show was emceed by Snoop Dogg who did a great job by the way. Snoop was full of charisma and delivered in a series of skits that featured Nia Long in some of her famed roles.
Presenters: Keyshia Cole, Porsha Williams, and my mind just drew a blank at the rest of the presenters. Winners: DJ Mustard, Future, Pharrell, Casino(Move That Doh), YG, Jeezy, and Rich Homie Quan to name a few. Performances: Common, Vince Staples, Rich Gang featuring Rich Homie Quan and Young Thug(the first of many performances of the night), T.I., Doug E. Fresh(who also received a Lifetime achievement award I believe), Brandy, Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, and Yo Yo(I Wanna Be Down), Migos(Fight Night). Audience Sightings: Stevie J, Joseline Hernandez(Love & Hip Hop Atlanta), Mimi Faust(Love & Hip Hop Atlanta), 2 Chainz, Ray J, BustaRhymes, Bow Wow, Future, etc. Cyphers: Wiz Khalifa, Remy Ma, Papoose, Treach(Naughty By Nature), Lil' Mama, Snow Tha Produce, Detroit Che, Murda Mook, G Eazy, Chevy Woods, etc. All in all the 2014 BET Hip Hop Music Awards was very entertaining and I still feel that the 2015 BET Awards should be prerecorded next year. I'm over the live show full of technical difficulties, missed cues, and black outs. Aren't you? If you missed the awards they will reair on Wednesday October 15 at 7 PM EST.

Album Spotlight: Ne-Yo - In My Own Words

It's probably starting to look like a Ne-Yo fan site here with all the recent posts mentioning him; but I assure you it is not. The hype behind Ne-Yo's debut album; "In My Own Words" reached a fever pitch thanks to the debut single; "So Sick". The song was a huge success including its singles; "Sexy Love", "When Ur Mad" and more.

Ne-Yo definitely plays up on his buzz by writing and producing many of the tracks. This album would lead to Ne-Yo being a very sought after songwriter and producer. It is the album of his I favor the most. I think as he progressed as an artist; I somewhat lost interest.

*UPDATED* Music Feed: Janet Jackson's Most Sexualized Songs: REVISITED

You all, my readers, my visitors; my supporters; you have made this post one of the most successful posts on my blog. I kept wondering what it was about this post, that made it so successful; one word: JANET! The fact that Janet has new music on the way makes this post even more of a hot topic. As its been said before, no one sings about sex quite like Janet Jackson. Her songs, ooze with the right amount of sexuality perfect for a night of steamy sex. Take a look back at a number of songs Janet is responsible for delivering her in trademark breathy delivery. I took the liberty of adding a few other songs that didn't make the list before. 

"Warmth"
This song begins with echos of Janet saying "...in my mouth". By then you should already know what this song is about. Janet sings about the "warmth" of her mouth and how she pleases her lover; Jermaine Dupri at the time. This is a very sensual song and it is one of the most explicit Janet has ever recorded …

Album Spotlight: Beyonce - Dangerously In Love

If you were in love in 2003, it wasn't official unless you were living "Dangerously In Love". It was the title of Beyonce's 2003 breakthrough solo album which spawned the singles, "Crazy In Love" featuring Jay-Z, "Baby Boy" featuring Sean Paul, "Me, Myself, and I", and the title track. The album would serve as a precursor of what was to come from this bonafide superstar. Unlike her later albums, "Dangerously" was deep-rooted in southern soul and R&B melodies. This album also showed a more gentler, sultry, and relaxed(voice wise) Beyonce. As opposed to the last few years her style has been more abrasive and in your face. Never one to be outdone, Beyonce was set to release a follow-up to this album titled, "Dangerously In Love 2" featuring unreleased songs but it didn't happen. From the seductive "Speechless" to the cautionary tale of "Me, Myself, and I", "Dangerously In Love" is m…
