The 1st Thread/Music Wakeup Call Returns For 4/30/15: Chedda Da Connect - Flicka Da Wrist (2015)

Image
(Listener and Viewer Discretion is Advised, especially if you are not black or grew up in an American ghetto). 
It is really along the same lines of "CoCo" from OT Genasis, but undeniable that "Flicka Da Wrist" has popularity in the party scene, even with how it is the same terrible club song only made great by the beat. But the comedy of Chedda Da Connect's hoodness makes it even more memorable.

The Music Wakeup Call returns to The Whole Delivery, and it's from Chedda Da Connect.

And please at some time today, especially if you are black, say "Kitchen Plate......Kitchen Plate."



More to come, stay tuned.

The 1st Thread/The Charm City Curfew Thread For 4/29/15: Baltimore Riots Highlight the Delicate Balance of Using Police Force

Image
A myriad of criticism has been directed at Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s restrained handling of her city’s massive riots the last two days, as the delicate balance of whether a government should enforce strong action on its citizens is once again under debate.
That conundrum has placed Rawlings-Blake into a current "Damned if you do, damned if you don't" place, where she will inflame social media activists if police force is continuously active like it was on Tuesday night, or further incensed outsiders that have slammed her for her police department's lack of aggressive on Monday. 
Rawlings-Blake adamantly defended her decisions for a calm, hands off response from her police department hours after mostly young adults and teenagers began their raiding of local stores and locations throughout West Baltimore. Over the weekend, the 45-year-old mayor and native of Baltimore emphasized her support of first amendment practices.
"I made it very clear that I w…

The Sports Thread/A Live Thread For 4/14/15 : The 2014-15 Champions League Quarterfinals, Day 1 (Version One)

For Atletico-Real: 
The law of advantages say that it is time for Real to take back ownership of the Madrid derby, a derby that Atletico has dominated this season as much as Real use to before the days of Diego Simeone on the Atletico touchline. But there just isn't a clear sign for that to happen other than.....the law of advantages. 
With both teams full strength, there are just going to be no excuses for who doesn't make it the semifinal. Pepe and Sergio Ramos were unavailable for the 4-0 demolition in the Calderon (so too Marcelo), completing the 6-game winless streak los Blancos are suffering under their beleaguered crosstown rivals. Couple their return with Carlo Ancelotti's side regaining some of their first half of the season form, it seems the world champions could save their season just in the nick of time. 
But matchup wise, they will have to finally be able to outcraft, outsmart and, most importantly, outmentally tough Atletico. 
Can James Rodriguez help Marcel…

The Flashback Fridays #2 For 4/10/15: Ludacris - Act a Fool (2003)

Image
In honor of Furious 7 being the biggest grossing debut ever for a movie, here is the lead song to the series' second movie after the shockingly successful first movie. It's from Sir Ludacris with a song that isn't played that much anymore. It's "Act a Fool" from Ludacris, the second Flashback Friday choice after the first one.

Again, his flow & genius is so underrated.

The Flashback Fridays #1 For 4/10/15: Omarion - O (2005)

Image
With him getting back to some relevance thanks to "Love and Hip-Hop", Omarion is back on the scene with decent momentum now. Despite how lazy the video was, "Post to Be" with Chris Brown, Jhene Aiko, and DJ Mustard's similar pattern is a "club hit."

So it's only fitting that we take it back a decade ago at this time with the first solo single of Omarion's career after the B2K drama ended. Though "IceBox" is his most popular song to date, for me, this one has been the best from him.

It's "O", the first Flashback Friday song of several for this Friday.



More to come in TWD today, stay tuned.
