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. 

New Video: Tinashe - 'Bet' + 'Feels Like Vegas'

Tinashe funded her recent videos from ‘Aquarius,’ because her label stopped financing her music videos. I try not to judge harshly considering Tinashe funded this music video herself. I’m actually proud of Tinashe for continuing to release music videos, because it shows her drive as an artist.

The video is dark, as a sweaty Tinashe is seen in a tunnel and parking garage dancing and doing acrobatics. I think Tinashe’s fan base has expanded since her debut, and many are interested in hearing her second album, including myself. I try to hold back from some of my thoughts, because I’m aware that Tinashe funded this video. That says a lot. The video is still suiting for each song. The quality could’ve been better though.

I wish her label would’ve supported her more. It’s clear both Tinashe and her label weren’t on the same page in regards to her vision, which is why ‘Aquarius’ was so slept-on. I’m glad she still continued to put in her effort, despite her label not backing her. I’m excited for her second album.
