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. 

Did You Miss It? Dr. Luke Disses Beyonce Over Kanye West Rant During "Album Of The Year" Win:

Looks like the "Party In The U.S.A." producer has received some backlash, after retweeting a tweet on Twitter, based on Sunday night's controversy at the Grammys, as Beck won "Album Of The Year." Of course, many took to social media expressing their opinion, toward the winner, and I personally didn't expect Beck to win, as I don't know much of his music, and it seems like he didn't have as much success as the other nominees with his album, "Morning Phase," commercially. During the win, many were outraged, as neither Sam Smith or Beyonce took home the Grammy. Kanye West, even expressed his views toward Beck winning the award saying during an interview with "E!" saying, "I don't know what he said, all I know is if the Grammys want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us. We ain't gonna play with them no more. Beck needs to respect artistry and he should have given his award to Beyoncé, and at this point, we tired of it. Because what happens is, when you keep on diminishing art and not respecting the craft and smacking people in the face after they deliver monumental feats of music, you're disrespectful to inspiration and we as musicians have to inspire people who go to work every day, and they listen to that Beyoncé album and they feel like it takes them to another place."

Dr. Luke recently took to twitter, retweeting a tweet, that dealt with what went down on Sunday night at the Grammys, which read, "Kanye West told a ni**a who plays like 14 instruments that he needs to respect the artistry of a woman who needs 4 writers for one song." Just the fact that Beck plays 14 instruments, already gains my respect for him as an artist, and it shows that he is much more talented, and capable of more as an artist, than Beyonce as she does actually need about 4 writers for one song. (Fun Fact: Beyonce needed eight writers to help with the songwriting of "Drunk In Love.") A song that barely has any true meaning to it. (smh..) Well, of course if someone else retweeted this, they wouldn't be the center of attention, as you wouldn't expect this from a successful songwriter and producer like Dr. Luke. He's not lying though. Still, do you guys think the media should put Beyonce in this, as she had nothing to do with Kanye's rant? Also, do you think Dr. Luke has the right to express his views toward this?
