I really love books and magazines. Vogue, GQ, fiction, autobiographies, and even books for dummies. I love them all. I sometimes find myself in Barnes and Noble for hours just browsing through the aisles. I end up sitting at a table with a dozen books and mags to look through but on my most recent visit, I decided to pick some things up.

Anticipation is moderately high for the release of the “Successful” video, the Drake song feat. Trey Songz. Arguably one of his most mainstream singles, it was able to open up his array of listeners from the monster radio love it got earlier this year and throughout the summer in general — but then again, so did almost everything on “So Far Gone”.

This was almost not even newsworthy enough to post. Who DIDN’T see this coming!? I wanna know what the deal really looks like though. They always spill the beans money wise on everyone else. What gives?
Either way, big shouts to the homie Drake… He’s doing it right now.
Peep the MTV news story with what some industry cats have to say about him.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!!! Yup. The holiday of love isÂ uponÂ us yet again. I hope you are with someone you love today, even if it’s a family member. I’ve got a date with my beautiful daughter but I’m pretty sure she can’t eat a whole box of chocolate yet. She’ll still get my love though. But enough with the mushy stuff. Let me put you folks on to a few things I’ve been loving recently.
1: Drake. This kid can seriously flow. And he can sing!! It’s not every day that you get a good rapper and good singer in one package (sorry Kanye). If you haven’t heard this kid do his thing I’ll hook you up with 3 links to my Drake favorites. So check out “Say Whats Real“, “Unstoppable remix“, and “Little Bit“. He’s a monster.
2: I’ve laid off of buying Nike sneakers because theÂ exclusivityÂ of dope sneakers has rapidly plunged over the years. And that’s not just Nike. But lately I just buy boots and shoes with the occasional pair kix. The Black History Month Air Force 1’sÂ are about to cause me to relapse!! The premium leather, detail, and overall craftsmanship makes these the first pair of sneakers that make me proud to be African-American!
3: The Louis Vuitton website has a great Valentines Day layout. With this recession, their merchandise doesn’t really make for practical gifts. But you can always go Windows shopping!
4: Most guys love Danity Kane. And it’s not because of their vocals. So I’m wondering how many men picked up this months Playboy magazine with Aubrey on the cover. I also wonder how Diddy feels about this. I know I’m happy!!
5: It’s NBA All Star Weekend Ladies and Gentlemen (if you can get her to stay in the house with you for V-Day, tune in!!). I’ve been watching All Star games since back when Jordan could still fly. The greatest commercial EVER was debuted a few years ago during All Star Weekend; the Nike Basketball commercial. Yea you know the one i’m talking about. If not, check it out here!!!
