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. 

Leah Still Wins Jimmy V. Perseverance Award/Devon Still Speaks On The Behalf Of Leah:

Recently, Devon Still accepted the 'Jimmy V. Perseverance Award' on the behalf of his sick 5-year old daugther, who is currently battling cancer. Leah was not able to attend, as she's in remission and undergoing daily radiation treatment to ensure the cancer stays away. Leah did however, leave a message to those at the ESPY audience from back home, along with a hello to her dad and Lebron James, who presented the award. 

Throughout Devon Still's acceptance speech, Still spoke on the highs and lows of the last year, including Leah's diagnosis and the cancer spreading throughout her body. Still also spoke on how much of a struggling experience it was for himself, having to leave his daughter to go to Cincinnati, and how he would have the thoughts of drinking vodka, but stopped himself from the decision, as he told his daugther that she couldn't let this battle get the best of her. Devon Still thought who he was he to find an escape through liquor, and his daugther didn't have an escape. He would instead pray with his fiance that he didn't lose his daughter while in Cincinnati.

Very emotional speech. Devon's bond with Leah is truly special, and I will continue to wish her the best.
