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 Music: Mariah Carey – “Infamous” Ft. Jussie Smollett 🐐

Ahead of its release, Mariah Carey's Empire cut, “Infamous” has arrived.

Carey, who'll be guest-starring on the musical soap opera collaborates with Jussie Smollett (Jamal). While it was scheduled for release on Friday, it premiered on EW two days prior. 

In the Jermaine Dupri-produced cut, Carey remains in her mid-range. Hopefully, the diva intends on keeping this specifically for “Empire” as it sounds unfinished. 

Carey's voice sounds very current. (Meaning, it doesn't seem like her voice was enhanced or mixed.) However, Smollett's voice is autotuned on his final verse which was unnecessary. While his tone comes off as annoying, autotune still isn't necessary for support.

The two will be seeing more of each other soon as Smollett will be opening for the chanteuse during her three shows in Honolulu on Nov. 23, 25, and 26.

Listen to “Infamous” below and catch Mariah on “Empire” next Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET.
