Downtown’s Sweetheart, miss Vashtie Kola, announces that she is the first female to collaborate with the most prestigious of kicks, Nike Air Jordan. Checkin a first look at the extra girly design of the VxJ collab. Lovin the lavender leather; the silver foil laced in the laces is straight reminiscent of a little girl in the 90s, as what we would expect coming from hostess of her NY party, “1992.” Va$htie will soon breakdown the design process & a color story, so keep up.

The sapphire nail file is more of an essential purse accessory than most women may realize. Available at all local drugstores for usually around one to two bones, it’s affordable & functional.. Functional, in more ways than one, that is. True, having a file on hand is convenient when ones nail chips, but having a file like this is convenient when a lady is being hassled. If ever need be, it’s smart to have a sort of protection tool in possession. To be frank, the sapphire nail file can double up as a weapon. With it’s metal pointed tip & handle for grip, I find the item to be an appropriate shank. Though the file is quite light & thin, to make considerable damage, it’s all about technique. Find soft spots, like the trapezius (where the neck & shoulder meet), stomach, inner thigh, etc; stab quick, & twist; repeat if necessary. This should give enough damage for you to run or stun the assailant for further self-defense methods. So remember ladies, stab & twist.

VIDEO OF THE DAY:
Lil Kim – “Crush On You”
Lil Kim > Nicki Minaj
I genuinely enjoyed Kim’s music. I was a preteen listening to that raunchy sh– on Kim’s debut album “Hard Core.” How is that compared to little girls listening to Nikki Minaj today?
It’s obvious the quality in today’s mainstream music is “different” then that of just a couple decades ago..
Besides the fact that Junior M.A.F.I.A. was that deal, Kim brought that originality, that real raw sh–. Nicki Minaj is straight Lil Kim x Lil Wayne. & I personally don’t approve of Lil Wayne, but that’s just me.

Hopie Spitshard ft. Donwill – “Trunk (The Remixes)”
Wordemup. Femme rapper, Hopie Spitshard a.k.a. The Diamond Dame hails from the same land as I. With that, I instantly related. This track has Bay Area written all over it: the slaps, her Del-esque flow, the sauciness. I’m with it. It really takes me home.. Yadida.

I personally could give a shit if it’s American Apparel & if the print seems to be M.I.A. trendy. I, first of all, have always loved ethnic patterns since my days of being a Lay-Hippie years ago, BEFORE the likes of M.I.A. emerging through FRUITION. I, second of all, have always been a huge advocate for baggy cuts. I, third of all, love jersey, being its so comfortable to move in, especially as a bgirl. Admittingly, one of my biggest pet peeves are seeing people wear something I own, & to purchase this from AA would definitely mean someone, somewhere, would have it. But trust, no one will rock it like I would.
