What a major move for Houston’s Legend Rap Artist Brad “Scarface” Jordan to run as Member of Councilman for District D. As former member of “The Geto Boys” and Facemob, the Artist is taking on a new journey in his life.
Three days ago, he posted on instagram “Should I Run For Houston City Council?” He announced via social media (Saturday June 8th) that he will be running.
Social media has went into a frenzy about Gucci advertising their blackface sweater. The sweater becomes questionable and the black community becomes furious! Why would Gucci even put out such a design, even during black history month?
Many in the hip hop community blasts the high end fashion brand. Soulja Boy, T.I., Waka Flocka, and more goes in on Gucci and how they no longer will be supporting this brand. With most of blacks buying and flaunting the brand, this becomes a slap in the face to one of their biggest buyers.
Gucci sends out an apology:
As a whole, we should stop supporting these brands that still embrace to racist acts from the elite. We need to become more supportive of our black owned businesses that create clothing for our body design. These European brands don’t even fit us properly. Why do our black people complain but never make a call to action not to support these brands that care less? We are in high hopes that our people get the picture one day to end The ill mannered actions.
Gucci deeply apologizes for the offense caused by the wool balaclava jumper. We consider diversity to be a fundamental value to be fully upheld, respected, and at the forefront of every decision we make. Full statement below. pic.twitter.com/P2iXL9uOhs
Across the world, the sleeping giants are trying to keep the community afloat. Ever since we met Sandra Massie Hines, we continue to keep up with her hard work within the city of Houston. As The Honorary Mayor of Sunnyside, Community Outreach Service Specialist, and Activist, she contribute a large amount of her time with the community.
Every first Saturday of each month, Metropolitan C.M.E Men’s Ministry does their part. They conduct the “Doing Our Part” Senior, Homeless, And Community Luncheon. Mr. Henry Durley is the President of the Men’s Ministry. He does a pleasant job accommodating the people and that the are fed.
November 10th, Nyte Lyfe Lexx was requested to become Mistress of Ceremony for the Fellowship Meal. With her efforts of gathering young hip hop artists, she insisted that a few come and volunteer with her at the church. She reached out to several artists. Houston Artist BG Kenny Lou and The Lyrical Angel JR were the only ones to be present. Kenny bought a few friends with him including Artist Ghost Magneto. They came introduced themselves as well as announced they were going to feed the homeless afterwards. We were thrilled to hear these guys are going to use their time to give back in the community.
Kenny Lou and Ghost were collaborating at this time with their music. They were steady in the studio planning the next move.
November 27, was when these young men passed away. They were both killed in Houston in a club parking lot. This became one of the most hurtful deaths to happen in Houston this year.
All over the news and the internet, media portrayed these young men as gang members, and Gang affiliation. This deterred search of the killers, as the media gives us a negative narrative of these young men.
This had Sandra Hines upset. The fact that these men were in her church home wanting to do positive things. The police and media may not be aware of their right doings. Sandra makes sure of that by sharing their story all over social media.
The Honorable Al Green, Member Of Congress presented both Kenny and Ghost flags flown over The United States Capitol. They were the same flags given to Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr. The deepest condolences were extended from the Men’s Ministry as well.
In today’s generation, we suffer with having a wide range to outlets to give back in the community. We will continue bringing awareness to resources our people need in Houston.
We give special thanks to Metro Ministry To Men, The Metropolitan CME Church Family, JR Achievers and Sunnyside Silver Hair Seniors Group Inc, MOSS Committee , Connie Ford (Russell & Smith Ford), Angelia Reese, Dori Wolfe,and Efrem Jernigan, FNM $hoota, and Vision4Productions.

Drake definitely put on for the city of New Orleans with his hit single “In My Feelings” from his latest project “Scorpion”. Drake is well aware of New Orleans culture, as a member of Young Money/Cash Money Records. With the “KeKe Challenge” stirring the Internet into a frenzy, he also gave the world an overview of New Orleans Bounce Music. Having Super Producer BlaqNMild on the beat is the perfect example of a bounce track!
Having New Orleans own Magnolia Shorty on the track “I Got A New Boy, & That Nigga Trade” puts smiles on the cities face. Everyone in the city should have brightened up, having this track placed repeatedly across the globe. We salute to her family as she Rest In Peace. He also have the City Girls Featured on the track.

Having The Diplomats on tour in Houston was the highlight of this summer. Fans anticipates the long awaited Dipset Reunion with Jim Jones, Cam’Ron, Juelz Santana, and Freeky Zeeky.

We all then knew what time of day it was. The rest of Dipset was not coming out to perform. It was said that business was not squared away as planned. (They didn’t get paid!)
Big ups to Jim Jones for allowing his fans to get a brief experience of what A Dipset show would consist of. The fans were in an uproar! We are not sure who was the actual janky promoters but it was a huge upset for us and the people of Houston. It is understood Dipset had noting to do with not presenting themselves. It’s just that business is business, so pay them guys!!!! We teamed up with The Texas Plug and were able speak to fans about what were their experience of show. We even had a chance to speak to TMZSOUTH from Houston. Check out the video below to see what really happened!
