Flavor In The Street

Hello World! Flavor In The Street was something I wanted to do, because I felt I had grown since my previous websites. I feel like I was seeing blogging from a different perspective. At one time, I saw this as more of something I did for fun, and I still continue to see blogging as this, but I also have grown a passion for it. I'm getting a platform, where I get to fully express my views on topics in music. I feel like my opinion is rarely heard, and I want to be viewed as the voice of my generation soon. We never get a platform to talk, and it's now just the beginning. 

The idea of Flavor In The Street was just to restart my brand. I had gotten the idea of the title from one of my favorite shows, "Living Single" along with the slang, 'Word On The Street.' As many of you know, Khadijah James had owned a magazine company titled, "Flavor." I got the idea by combining the two, which later birthed 'Flavor In The Street.'

I'm quite a hard-working kid. I manage to keep my grades together, while running this blog. I've never quite looked into adding more writers to help grow the brand, but of course I'm open to trying new ideas. I plan to adventure quite a lot when I get older, and my taste in music varies. 

Black Excellence: 5 Things to Know About the History-Making Little League Pitcher, Mo'ne Davis!

At 13, Mo'ne Davis boasts two assets any baseball player would covet: a killer arm and fierce confidence. "Throwing 70 miles an hour – that's throwing like a girl," the star of the Philadelphia Taney Dragons told CBS News of her famed fastballs. On Friday, the South Philly native became the first girl to throw a shutout in Little League World Series history, allowing only two hits, striking out eight batters and walking none against Tennessee. "It's the Mo show out there," Philadelphia manager Alex Rice told The New York Times. Here's what you need to know about the breakout player, whose next game is Sunday night in Williamsport, Pennsylvania:

1. She's not to be underestimated.

"You won't see her fall apart on the mound," Rice told CBS. "You can't get to her. It's a real poised group, and she's at the head of it." Davis is only the fourth American girl ever to play in the Little League World Series, and the first since 2004.

2. She's on a tear.

The right-hander also pitched an impressive three-hit shutout game over Newark during the Mid-Atlantic Regional Championship on Aug. 11. "She was on, she was in control from start to finish," Newark manager Tim Bush told thePhiladelphia Daily News. "She was great. I tip my hat to her."

3. Even the Major Leaguers are impressed.

After her win against Tennessee, she earned a shout-out from a reigning MLB MVP, Andrew McCutchen. And her favorite athlete, NBA star Kevin Durant, offered a sweet tweet as well.

4. She's humble.

When it comes to her status as a trailblazer, "it does mean a lot to be the first American girl, but more girls should start joining boys' teams," Davis told thePhiladelphia Daily News. "The attention should not just be on one girl; more girls should join boys' teams so it is a tradition and it won't be so special."

5. Baseball is not her primary sport.

Basketball is. The honor-roll student dreams of playing in the WNBA – but at this rate, MLB will need to make room for her, too.
