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. 

Discussion: What Were Your Favorite Albums Of 2015?

With a blog where I write about music, it keeps me updated. I think this year I’ve really branched out with the artists and music I listen to. I wish I could’ve taken a photo of what my music library looked like last year, and what it looks like now. (Like a before and after photo) I’m not sure on whether I would say this was a good year for R&B. R&B has had its highs and lows. Some of the highs in R&B this year was Tyrese, Jill Scott, and Janet Jackson debuting at #1 this year. The lows would be some R&B artist underperforming, such as Monica, Tamar Braxton, and Ciara. R&B is still in a state of emergency. Anyway, I wanted to name some of my favorite albums this year, which are below:
