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. 

Kanye West Will Boycott Grammys If Frank Ocean Isn’t Nominated

Kanye West has shown that he's defensive over Beyoncé, and apparently he's defensive over Frank Ocean as well. This doesn't come as a surprise, as West went on a Twitter rant earlier this year urging radio stations to support Frank Ocean.

As for the rapper's recent rant which took place at his show in Oakland, he threatened the Grammys committee by boycotting if Frank Ocean isn't nominated. This comes after reports that Ocean is ineligible for the 2017 Grammys as “Blonde” nor “Endless” were submitted for consideration. 

Despite that, West believes the Grammys have an opportunity to change their rules to have Ocean involved in the show, mentioning that they’ve done this action for Gaga. “The album I listened to the most this year is Frank Ocean’s album,” said West. “I’ll tell you this right now: If his album’s not nominated in no categories, I’m not showin’ up to the Grammys.”

Clearly, Kanye is using his star power to his advantage. Personally, it wouldn’t make a difference if he attended or not. Also, I wasn’t fond of Blonde. Perhaps it was because I compared it to his debut, which was excellent. Blonde was a cohesive and mellow album, but not deserving of a Grammy in my opinion.
