- A special friend of mine got me started with blogging (check out her page at http://iheartfashion-mcmaris.blogspot.com/). I'm 28, I LOVE music in every sense. I know a little about 70's music, more about 80's music, even more about 90's and a lot about the new millenium. Check out what I have to say...

All those hip hop lovers keep ya eyes on J Cole. The mutli talented artest can produce and right his own songs. His lyrics are crisp, with metaphores that make you say "hold up, rewind that", I think Cole is a shining star. Not to many artists these days can actually inspire. Influenced by artists like Jay-Z, the young rapper inspires all young emcees to step up their game. You might have heard him first on "A Star is Born" off Jay-Z's BluePrint 3 album. One of my favorite songs that still hasn't gotten old, is Miguel feat Cole "All I Want is You". If you haven't heard it, check it out. FIRE! Miguel's unique sound and Cole sharp lyrics, makes you wanna pick up the phone and call ya old girl lol. Keep ya eyes open for Roc Nation's first signee. "Cole World...."

HE'S BACK. EMINEM'S NEW ALBUM IS A SMASH COMPARED TO THE LAST TWO THAT WERE RELEASED (RELAPSE AND ENCORE). HIS METAPHORES ARE ONE OF THE REASONS WHAT MAKES HIM SO GREAT IN THE FIRST PLACE. IT SOUNDS LIKE THE INFLUENCES OF EMCEES LIKE LIL WAYNE HAVE SPRUNG THE PHENOMANOL RAPPER BACK INTO HIS OLD METAPHORICALLY MULTI SYLLABLLIC RHYMING SELF.. OFF DRUGS AND HIGH OFF LIFE. WE'LL SEE HOW LONG IT LASTS, BUT I'M HAPPY FOR EM. HE'S BEEN ONE OF MY FAVORITE'S SINCE INFINITE.
NOW YOU MAY THINK, "EM'S SOLD OLD, HE DID SONGS WITH RIHANNA AND PINK!!" BUT I BEG TO DIFFER. AS AN ARTISTS, YOU MAKE MUSIC, REGARDLESS OF WHO YOU'RE MAKING IT WITH, IT THE END RESULT IS GOOD MUSIC, THEN MORE POWER TO YOU!
"I'M SO HOT MY MUTHAFCKIN' FIRE TRUCK'S ON FIRE HOMEY"
ONE OF MY PERSONAL FAVORITES ON THE ALBUM IS "TALKIN' TO MYSELF". EM'S ABILITY TO MAKE A PERSON SELF REFLECT IS ASTONISHING. HE HASN'T BEEN ABLE TO DO IN YEARS, BUT LIKE I JUST SAID, AND LIKE HE'S SAYS AT THE END OF THE SONG "I'M BACK!"
