Malcolm X: More than the "any means necessary" mantra that has become his enduring legacy;
Malcolm X was eloquent, proud, and a messenger!
A powerful black leader who fought for human rights. He turned ideas into a compelling vision that, combined with his personal charisma,
attracted many people to his cause.
Malcolm's journey came to an untimely end on this day in 1965, at the Audubon Ballroom in the Washington Heights neighborhood of New York City,
as he prepared to speak at a political meeting.
Malcolm X died, in the end, how he lived: working, teaching and inspiring ordinary black people.

The Queen of Master P's No Limit Empire has been cooking and I'm not just talking about in the kitchen. Mama Mia X has been cooking up that fire in the studio with Jay Da Menace and Ms. Tasha. In her new joint, "Mr. Right," Mia lets the GOOD men know that they are appreciated, loved and that their good work isn't in vain. Her soft voice is perfect for this Man pat on the back joint. Any guy would appreciate her vocals on this one and ladies if you have a good man, bump this for him.
You're probably familiar with Strait Jigg from his features on Da U Boys albums. The younger generation of the U crew, Jigg's raunchy, rough & rugged style is proper for his "Ove Ya Dome" sequel. Take a listen to the mixtape below and leave your comments.....
New Orleans own Young Greatness hails from the 7th ward, St. Bernard Housing Projects. The mixtape features former Cash Money Records Rapper Juvenile, MMG's Meek Mill and G.O.O.D. Music's Pusha T. With a sound like Future, Young Greatness brings a touch of that N.O. flare to the rap game. "Dollar For Hate" is packed with jams, sounding more like an album than a mixtape. Check out his video below for his single, "Rolie on My Wrist" featuring Meek Mill and take a listen to the mixtape below --> http://indy.livemixtapes.com/mixtapes/26548/young-greatness-dollar-for-hate.html

As the 2014 New Orleans elections approached, tensions flared all across the city. Mayor Mitch Landrieu was almost sure to be re-elected again with no real competition until former Judge Michael Bagneris decided to put his name in the running. N.O. NAACP President Danatus King also ran against the Mayor. For a city crying out for change, the election results were startling. Mayor Mitch Landrieu won by a landslide.
Not only did he win, but City Councilwoman Stacey Head was also re-elected. Marlin Gusman and Charles Foti landed in a runoff for Sheriff and Jason Williams and Cynthia Hedge-Morrell will runoff for Council District B.
Several arguments were brought up about how Mitch is only rebuilding part of the city, the Uptown area in particular and how several city contracts went to big corporations like Costco, Whole Foods and Walmart. Little to no work has been done in the lower 9th ward area, the area that was devastatingly flooded after Hurricane Katrina. The East is also slowly coming back. Plus there is still no mental health care and no city hospital. Charity Hospital was severely damaged after the storm as well and has yet to be reopened. Jails have been the only help for mental health patients. Ordinances are being passed to quiet down the streets of New Orleans, taking away from our music in the streets tradition.
Speaking of jails, the Orleans Parish Prison System is being ran horribly, yet and still the two men in the runoff are the two men who have been over the system for the last who knows how many years. You call this CHANGE?
People want different results and so the SAME stuff. Re-electing people who are not making moves or the right moves won't move the city forward. Not showing up to the polls and not electing anyone won't move the city forward. When I arrived to the polls at 7 am in the morning, there were only 3 voters there with no wait. I walked right up, signed my name, voted and walked out. Where was everybody? Did the citizens of New Orleans who are crying out for a change know that it was election day or nah? Maybe, they were just too lazy to get out and VOTE. After all, it doesn't effect them anyway right? Ha.
