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. 

Nicki Minaj Hints At Remy Ma Collaboration/ Refers To New Album As ‘Epic’

Nicki Minaj's Barbz will have to regain trust in the rapper after tweeting a faux album announcement.

Last Monday, Minaj spoke to the New York-oriented radio stations, Hot 97 and Power 105.1. While the station rivalries focused on similar topics, Minaj spilled more details to Hot 97 on her forthcoming project (Not “Pick My Fruit Out” by the way).

She reveals that she wanted to bring more female unity to her latest effort, “Pinkprint” with a collaboration featuring Foxy Brown and Remy Ma. However, Minaj still has hope in the collab saying, “I love them both so I think that’s only a matter of time before she and I do something.”

As for the highly anticipated follow-up to Pinkprint: “The album is so freaking epic,” she explained, “but it’s a journey. Before my first album came out, I was on everybody’s song. I had my own campaign without realizing it. Right now, I have to complete a few things for other people…What that does, throughout my career, it makes me get back to my fun side and it makes me push my pen.”

Hear the full interview below:  

Flavor's Two Cents: However, there’s a difference between now and then. When Minaj debuted, there was mystery behind her. She had just stepped out and was already collaborating with acts such as Mariah Carey, Trey Songz, and Usher. While Minaj’s image was obviously influenced by Lil’ Kim, to the new generation it was perceived as ‘outlandish’ and ‘different,’ which garnered more interest behind her. Now that she’s become a household name, the frequent collaborations could instead overexpose her.
