What a weird day it was your typical “earthquake” weather. Gloomy, humid, drizzling and grey I was craving something hot and healthy. Phô seemed like the perfect meal warm, natural and flavorful but I couldn’t go to my favorite phô spot alone.. So I said “what the phô; I’ll make it myself!” Not a bad job I must admit ;)

[Street News] Top 5 Weekly Recap: Stevie Wonder is having triplets and Erykah Badu flops in Time Square?!

5.  I WILL REMEMBER YOU…

THE DEATH TOLL is rising especially if you’re a “celebrity” or someone that everyone knows in the words of Roxy Hart from CHICAGO. AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY actress Misty Upham was found dead along the river in Washington State earlier this week. Latin actress Elizabeth Pena, who was last seen on MODERN FAMILY died of a brief undisclosed illness also this week. Saturday Night Live alum Jan Hooks also succumbed to undisclosed illness recently as well. Our prayers are with their family as they go through this time of grieving and moving on.

4.   FOR ONCE IN “OUR” LIVES…

I guess Viagra is working and babies are still being created even in a man’s advanced age. According to sources R&B legend 64 years-young Stevie Wonder is about to be a father again for the seventh, eighth and ninth time, yass to triplets, with his 25 year old fiancé. He just called to say…he is going to be bringing new life into the world when many his age are retired, chillin, and wondering where that social security check is located. Well keep up the good work and popping out them albums Mr. Stevie, cause you got some more mouths to feed.

3.  CABLE WHAT? CABLE WHO?

Pretty soon all you would need to access your favorite shows is an internet connection, a lap top, smart tv or a HDMI compatible device such as GOOGLE CHROME to watch them. HBO has announced that as early as next year customers will be able to stream their show of choice without having to have purchased the channel on their cable package.  CBS has followed suit, and it’s only a matter of time before commodity purchasing will take the technology market by storm.  Seems like the days of HAVING TO HAVE ANIMAL PLANET in order to watch the I.D. Channel are coming to an end.

2.  A DECENT TIP? RIGHT?

Going “undercover” last week, Neo-Soul Performer Erykah Badu took to the streets of Time Square in NYC to perform as a street performer. Recording the event, Erykah said that this was a social experiment and was no statement on homelessness or people who do this daily. The singer, who hasn’t put out an album in some time made an outstanding $3.60. To this the singer was proud. But in actuality that’s probably how much the singer made on the last c.d. she released. Watch for yourself in the video above.

1.   DADDY! MAKE HIM SAY SORRY…

Twitter, Instagram and Facebook were on fire last week as the beef between Snoop Dog and Iggy Azalea played out. The ending result was that of Snoop Dog apologizing to the T.I. repped “rapper”. The beef started harmless as anything else by Snoop posting a picture of an albino woman with braids with a captioned that stated, “Iggy Azalea without makeup.” To this Iggy got her panties in a bunch and questioned the rapper about their relationship and the fact that she is always so nice to him when they run into each other in the streets. Snoop popped back at her, and she in turn did the same.  This went back and forth for a while until T.I. stepped his FATHER KNOWS BEST game up and asked Snoop to apologize, which he did. That was so FANCY of him…

Finally, The Top 11 ANSWERS to Jadakiss’ “Why”

Back in 2004 rapper Jadakiss came out with his catchy single “Why” featuring Anthony Hamilton. In the song he questioned pop-culture itself, raising awareness and speaking what was on most of our minds. Let’s face it, the new millennium threw all of us for a spin with cheesy fashion trends, thousands of one hit wonders and a government we all want to forget! By him dealing with the 2000’s and the decade’s most influential moments, here are the answers to the top 11 questions from Jadakiss’ – “Why”.
1. Why is the industry designed to keep the artist in debt?
360 deals do suck, but really why is McDonalds still in business if their food doesn’t mold after 360 days? CDC? FBI? USDA?.. I need that answer first.
2. Why you ain’t stackin’ instead of tryin’ to be fly?
The 2000’s were full of cheesy style. It’s when hip hop took over the fashion industry and ANY and EVERY body wanted a piece. Why save money when you can buy a FUBU jersey or dress like Allen Iverson on the bench?
3. Why they kill Tupac n’ Chris?
Too early for illuminati suspicions so let’s call Puff on that one.
4. Why did Kobe have to hit that raw? Why did he kiss that whore? Why?
He signed up for his free retreat to the “White Women Society”, No other reason. 
5. Why did Bush knock down the towers?
Why he did it, scared money don’t make no money. He was the decades most certified gangsta. 
6. Why Aaliyah have to take that flight?
To make the Rock The Boat video. Thanks for that visual baby-girl, we miss you. 
7. Why they gotta open your package and read your mail?
Because anthrax or cell phones for cell block selfies is NOT acceptable.
8. And why do niggaz lie in 85% percent of they rhymes?
This goes back to #2, the 2000’s was the decade where frontin’ became the norm, just ask Ja Rule baybeeehh.
9. Why they let the terminator win the election? Come on, pay attention.
No seriously, they wanted the state of California to be terminated. 
10. Why Halle have to let a white man pop her to get a Oscar?
Like c’mon, did you see that sex scene? It was pretty, well.. Oscar worthy. “Make me feel good” lol
11. Why Denzel have to be crooked before he took it?
I didn’t mind bad ass Denzel, plus, King Kong ain’t got nothing on him!

[Street News] Top 5 Weekly Recap: Raven Symone tells Oprah she’s not African-American and Walmart almost killed Tracy Morgan

5.  Young Hollywood…

eonline.com

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunas have taken this That 70s Show reunion to another level as they have produced That 2014’s baby. They welcome a baby girl Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher last week right on time and in perfect health. The TWO AND HALF MEN star has been teasing the public by releasing random baby pics and those of a dog and a llama on Instagram to thwart those who are trying to get a glimpse at the latest instant MILLIONAIRE. Congratulations to the happy couple.  You know Demi Moore is somewhere about to check into rehab…Oh, No…

4. I’m not African American, says the mixed black girl…

own.com

After starring on The Cosby Show to Thats So Raven, child star Raven Symone went out to talk to Oprah about her being categorized and classified as a “Lesbian” and “African American”. Basically stating that she wants to be seen as a human who loves humans so to speak. An every thing for everybody type of person. That’s cool and I don’t judge her it’s just so far left for a far right or even the older generations to understand. She also came out to say she’s not African American simply because she doesn’t know where in Africa or wherever else her roots come from, something we all cant really put a finger on but Oprah as well as Twitter and the entire world had an opinion about it. You know when mama Oprah calls on you to speak, you better watch what you say!

3.  Drake knocks the Beatles off of their Billboard!

vibe.com

From all the buzz going around the internet with Drake throwing the #HoodGrammys on social media (more so Instagram) there’s something worthy of applause that most people looked over. Drake, rapper/ actor, has surpassed the record holding -hit group, The Beatles, earning his 72nd spot on Billboards Hot 100 chart surpassing them in 8th place. Good job Aubrey! He can keep a hit single on the charts but he can’t keep a woman, eh, but he don’t need no award for that (Trophies).

2.  That’s the way to deflect…

truckerslogic.com

Walmart has officially released a statement regarding the accident that left comedian and actor Tracy Morgan great bodily harm. The company ostentatiously stated that if Mr. Morgan had been wearing his seatbelt, that most of his bodily injuries would not have occurred. Let me get this right. So, basically Walmart is blaming Tracy Morgan for the accident? Lest us not forget the world’s largest retailer, that if their driver had had adequate sleep, he wouldn’t have fallen asleep on the road and crashed into Mr. Morgan, thus killing his friend and badly injuring the star. This just seems like a mangled mess and I’m not just talking about that car or truck either.

1.  No shot for that, yet?.

cnn.com

A Texas Hospital is on high alert as well as the CDC in Atlanta as they are trying to control an Ebola outbreak from taking place here in these United States of America. Patients in Liberia, Africa had died weeks ago, and the patient that began to exhibit those symptoms in Texas was apparently on vacation in the African country. To add insult to injury, the patient even told the staff that he had visited the country, and the nursing and doctor team released him promptly stating that he could just have a small cold. To their surprise, the patient is now in critical condition and could be dead within days. Let’s be vigilant and keep this thing under control CDC, we don’t need to control population this way.
