Giveaway: Enter to Win Two Pairs of Glasses From Firmoo!

Well folks, it’s that time of the year again. Summer is almost over and before you know it, it’ll be time for you to be heading back to school. Or maybe some of you already have. In any case, this could only mean that it’s time to go back to school shopping. 
Not your typical back to school shopping, though. If you’re a four-eyed little nerd like myself, then this calls for new glasses. Who ever said you had to stick with the one pair you were prescribed by your optometrist anyhow? Glasses are also accessories and should be worn to spice up your wardrobe.

Tone Trezure – Universal Soul [Music]

Flint Michigan’s own Tone Trezure who has worked with the likes of Rick Ross and Snoop Dogg  gives us “Universal Soul” a cover of “@FatBellyBella,” Originally by Jay Electronica, signee of Jay-Z’s label Roc Nation. Electronica’s original song is a dedication to his ex-girlfriend, and the mother of his child, Erykah Badu. Flint who has given us Jon Connor, now gives us her, a woman with a beautiful voice. Check out the video below filled with pictures from times that have  passed and enjoy the soul that fills her voice. It definitely gives me an old school feel that I like. I love receiving feedback about indie artists so be sure to let me know if you like the song or not. Enjoy!

Liebster Award

I wasn’t necessarily awarded a Liebster Award, but I happened to like the questions that Tisha Jade over at Never Jaded asked in her Liebster Award post, so I’m going to answer them..and tag some people, probably. (;

By the way, a Liebster Award is when a blogger awards you and upon acceptance of the award, you nominate approximately 3-5 bloggers (some people have exceeded that number) and you post 11 questions that you would like them to answer in their Liebster Award post.
Here are the questions that Tisha asked.

Where are you from?
– I am from Antioch, California which is located in Northern Cali.

▪ Can you describe yourself in three words?
– Introverted. Creative. Passionate.
▪ What makes your blog different than any other blog?
– Although there are a lot of music blogs, my blog is different because I don’t post all of the artists that you see on EVERY other music blog. Also, since I do major in journalism my posts contain a lot more writing than other blogs. More often than not, my blog posts showcase how I would write if I were writing a professional article. Basically, I always try to blog in AP style. (:

▪ What’s the meaning behind the name of your blog?
– My blog name is derived from my undying love for music. I’ve always been very passionate about music and I’m constantly listening to it. I eat, sleep and BREATHE music. Pretty self-explanatory, right?

▪ Initial thought on KimYe’s baby news?
– I don’t really have an interest in their personal lives.

▪ If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
– If I could live anywhere in the world, I’d live in either New York or Italy.
▪ Dream career?
– Dream career: Music journalist. Music executive.

▪ If you could sit down and interview one person in the world, who would it be?
– If I could sit down and interview one person in the world, it’d be Kendrick Lamar (Pac, if he were alive).

▪ What are you looking forward to in 2013?
– I am most looking forward to growing as an individual, strengthening my relationship with God and becoming more knowledgeable in the profession that I work in.

▪ Any tips/advice for aspiring bloggers?
– Quality over quantity yet be consistent. 

▪ Biggest lesson learned in 2012?
– Man, I learned a lot of lessons in 2012..but I guess I’d say the biggest lesson I learned is that you shouldn’t stress over something that you have no control over. Just let nature take its course. If it’s meant to be, it’ll be.

J. Cole’s Sophomore Album "Born Sinner" Pushed Back

Does it come as a surprise to anyone that “Born Sinner” has been pushed back? I knew when he announced the title and release date in the beginning of November that there would be a “delay.” I never got my hopes up because the only promotion I’ve seen for this album was the announcement video that he released. 
I wouldn’t have wanted the album to be released this month anyway. I mean, yeah J. Cole may have mentioned that he’s been working on his second album after “Cole World: The Sideline Story” was released, but I get a sense that it still may have been rushed. And we do not want that, do we? I’m expecting a FLAWLESS album from him.
