* Did yall know that Lil Cease's character was played by Isiah, from Losing Isiah w/ crackhead Halle?
* Wasn't Puffy's dancing the funniest part of the movie?
* Wasn’t Biggie so damn charming? Did you think for a second that you could give big guys a chance? And then took it back once you saw the love scenes… ewh gross yucky!!!
* Were you reciting ALL the words to the Biggie songs?
* Lil Kim’s character… Was she that raunchy? Is that how she got put on? I hope not.
* The quote “We can’t change the world unless we change ourselves.” You think that was Obama-inspired? I think so.
* Young Biggie was left-handed and Grown Biggie was right-handed. Did yall peep that?
* Also, when they were in Cali out and about, did yall see the Bank of America in the background? I coulda swore it was called Nations Bank in the 90’s, no?
* Big was Sergio Techini down, wasn’t he? From the visor to his lil sweat towel. Lol.
* Were yall terrified when Big attacked Faith? Hell, I was!!
* Didn’t you want to see 112/Total cameo?
* My homie Tyler Dirton noted this earlier... Where the hell did they find a Craig Mack look alike?
Speaking of which… Here’s a Craig Mack video “Flava in yo Ear (Remix)”
My weekend was pretty eventful. Witnessed 2 fights (not including the Mosley joint). Saw Notorious (I'll get into that a lil later) Went to a wack, I repeat, wack comedy show. CHARLIE MURPHY!! Ate like a PIG!! And, picked up a bad a$$ pair of pumps.
I skipped last Monday (King Day) in the name of Obama. Today, I have a double dosage of Man Laws. Enjoy!! (Thanks Tyler)

I like Silver (pictured above). But for some reason, I want Lauren London's character to "hook up" with Dixon's (Michael from the Wire). But sneakily, her character is a lesbian. Something tells me she's going to swing both ways this season. Don't you think?
See Story Below:
BART Police officer involved in fatal shooting resigns
Scheduled to meet with BART police investigators today, the BART Police officer involved in the tragic shooting New Year’s Day at Fruitvale Station submitted his resignation effective immediately.
On Monday, the officer’s attorney postponed a meeting that had been scheduled by BART investigators for Tuesday and sought to defer the meeting until next week. BART investigators declined the delay and scheduled a meeting with the officer for this morning. At this morning’s scheduled meeting, the officer’s attorney and his union representative submitted his resignation letter. The officer was not present.
BART investigators have urged the officer to meet and cooperate with the transit agency’s investigation into the fatal shooting. BART Police investigators have notified the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office of the resignation and this development. The District Attorney’s office is conducting an independent probe of the January 1, 2009 shooting.
The BART Police investigation will continue to seek and examine all available evidence and will continue its full cooperation with the ongoing independent investigation by the District Attorney. "This shooting is a tragic event in every respect for all involved," BART General Manager Dorothy Dugger said. "We recognize that the family and friends of Oscar Grant are in mourning and we extend our condolences."

Keyshia Cole "A Different Me"
Beyonce "I AM/Sasha Fierce"
Kanye West "808s & Heartbreak"
Raphael Saadiq "The Way I See It"
These are great albums!! I'm just blown that I waited so long to purchase them. You know how it is with Itunes... You gotta get that credit card balance down before you can make that next purchase. My last purchase (before these) was Jazmine Sullivan...that was back in October. I need to do better. Anywho... I'm still listening to my new purchases. I got it on shuffle! So far, Raphael's joint is in the lead. Check out my favs off his album:
"Never Give You Up" (featuring Stevie Wonder)
"Just One Kiss" (featuring Joss Stone)
Thanks for listening... More reviews this afternoon. Look out for my New Music Tuesday post in a minute.

Go through your cell phone, caller id, calendar, and email addresses and discard all the people and events that mean you no good or don't benefit your life!
Stop making excuses about your life and make changes!
Keep your opinion to yourself! We all know what others should do, but what about you?
If you are involved w/ a person, job, or circumstance that is doing more harm than good, do yourself a favor - LET IT GO!
Get your debt in order! Eventually you'll want a nice home and car in your name!
Stop spreading senseless rumors and try to get your own life in order!
Listen more! Talk Less!
Give without worrying about it!
Tell him/her no for once!
Tell people you love them before you hear about some great tragedy in the world or lose a close friend!
Speak clearly and not ignorantly! Anyone can be a fool.
If you are between the ages of 22-35, please start listening to more than Hip-Hop!
Stop waiting on Tax Season and Save Now!
Eat what you need and not just because you can!
See how long you can go without checking your cell phone when it's not ringing. (Good One)
Be more positive and stop being a grouch!
STOP HATING! If you don't like my style, DO YOU!
If you aren't in relationship, it's not the end of the world! Self love is waaaaay more valuable!
FORGIVE! FORGIVE! FORGIVE! All of us have been forgiven for some low life things! So open your heart! Remember - God forgave you.
Men, stop trying to be so hard when it comes to relationships. Let that guard down before you lose the one that's meant for you! (Church!)
Speak up for yourself!
Learn a new hobby! Broaden your mind.
If you're single, start going on more dates with different types of people. Don't just stick to the same type of woman or man!
Live today like it's your last day, love like God taught us, and laugh like you've never laughed before!
Lastly, if it's only 5 minutes a day have a little talk with Jesus! Let Him know you want to be better today than you were yesterday and watch Him turn things around for you! "God determines who walks into your life....it's up to you to decide who you let walk away, who you let stay, and who you refuse to let go."
WISHING EACH & EVERYONE OF YOU A VERY A WONDERFUL NEW YEAR!!
Go into 2009 with more gratitude than attitude......it will keep you healthier!!
No matter what the situation, always SMILE and count your blessings!
