Dipset Chairmen Jim Jones and his Fresh NYC Play

Hip Hop artist JIM JONES' PLAY TAKES NY BY STORM


A few people I know went to the Jim Jones play last night. I heard Dame Dash was partly behind this masterful move in marketing music. I heard it was good. Peep the video .


I was looking at the twitter tweets of some people and they said Jim has started a new slang where he substitutes the N-Word for "My Obama." So now instead of saying "what up my n---a?" you would say, "What up, my Obama?" Obama wasn't at the play, but Dr. Ben Chavis was there as the minister and also the jail warden.



Jim's CD is called "Pray For Reign," but I heard all they got was rain. It rained all night and day in NYC.

MUSIC INDUSTRY WILL MISS SHAKIR STEWART


Rick Ross, Usher Call Def Jam Exec Shakir Stewart's Death 'A Great Loss For Music'
'He was the glue between the street and the corporate medium,' Ross says.

By Shaheem Reid
While many around the world were in a euphoric state Tuesday night as Barack Obama won the presidential election, Rick Ross just couldn't enjoy himself. Although he was ecstatic that the Illinois senator would be leading our nation, rap's biggest Boss was still in mourning.
"I lost my business partner and friend Shakir Stewart," Ross said about the man who played an integral part in him being signed to Def Jam Records. "After every one of the debates, I could count on receiving his phone call or giving him a phone call. My high of Obama winning the race is followed by a bitter depression [because] my comrade and someone I had so much respect and admiration for is no longer with us."
Stewart's still-shocked friends and family were in Atlanta on Thursday and Friday for a private funeral and open memorial service. The 34-year-old Def Jam executive vice president died Saturday of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. A week later, no one can make sense of the tragedy.
Stewart's image was of someone who conducted himself in a dignified manner and always seemed upbeat. Shakir — nicknamed "Shake" by his friends — was one of the most well-liked high-ranking executives in music. The respect that many of today's top stars had for him was unparalleled.
"From the aspect of production, writing, Shakir was everywhere," said Usher, who worked with Stewart a great deal over the years. "Whether it was working specifically for L.A. Reid, managing, giving advice ... just understanding the game and understanding the hustle and what this industry is — he was that dude. Whenever you saw him, he was always fly, always energy, he was Oakland [California]. He was always cool. He was always the guy bringing energy to the room. These last days, I heard his spirits was broken. So I'm pretty sure he had a very hard time before this incident."
"I feel he was the glue between the street and the corporate medium," Ross said. "He was my mesh. He was my go-to guy. It was a great loss for music. My condolences go to his family, his fiancée and children. For the people who knew Shake, regardless of the circumstances, his legend can never be tarnished."
Usher agreed. "To say the least, it was definitely earth-shattering to lose Shakir Stewart. An incredible commodity to this industry. Anybody that knew him knew the bright spirit he had. It came as a shock to everybody when we heard that horrible news. My prayers, my condolences and passion go out to his children, his fiancée and those closest to him. ... If anything, take this as an example as how you should cherish those around you.
"If you knew Shakir, you would say, 'Never. This could never happen to Shakir. It's not him. That wouldn't happen,' " Usher continued about his friend's death. "So, you know, I learned a lesson from this: to have compassion, to ask that question, to communicate. I think God put us here to communicate and help each other through our hardships. This industry can definitely take the worst of you or make the best of you. I've chosen to accept it as the best of me."
According to the police report, which was obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Stewart's fiancée had sensed a drastic change in his character and had called a family friend over to help talk to him. When the friend, identified as Herb Smith, stepped outside to call 911, he heard the fatal gunshot.

OBAMA DOES IT -FIRST BLACK PREZ


BARACK DID IT WITH CLASS AND STYLE AND THIS ELECTION WILL SERVE TO HAVE BLACKS VIEWED IN A DIFFERENT LIGHT (HOPEFULLY).THE FIRST WORD IN U.S.A. IS UNITED -LETS UNITE AND STAND UP TO BE GREAT IN THE EYES OF THE WORLD.

The following Viewpoint below is from Famous insider news Journalist Myra Panache she is over at panachereport.com and speaks the truth! see excerpt below



IT'S A NEW DAY-IGNORANCE IS OUT & CLASS IS IN!"

Brilliance, articulation, class and poise is in! Ignorance, self-hatred and buffoonery is out!

Barack Obama's education, intelligence and class put him on the path to the White House and now he's President of the United States.

It's time to pull up your sagging pants and get an education. Being a ignorant uneducated thug limits your choices in life and can lead to a life of crime which could land you in prison. Why not do what Obama did? Make something of yourself through education and intelligence, it landed him in the White House and not in a jail cell.

This is a new day. People have shown they are tired of negativity.

After Obama's victory, it was refreshing to hear "empowerment" music with meaningful lyrics. Example: "A Change Is Gonna Come," by Sam Cooke.


We also need to respect each other. Women, let men be men and support your man in his endeavors the way Michelle supported Obama in his dream to become President of the United States.

Men, respect your women. Oprah Winfrey (a black woman) was a huge help to Obama's campaign and used her show as an launching pad for his campaign. Michelle Obama, another black woman encouraged his run for the White House.
