2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 39,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 14 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Artist in the spotlight; Fash Cash

Born In Daytona Beach, Fl., and raised in DeLand, Fl., Fash Cash is an up and coming artist with a style all her own.  Representing Hav-Not Muzic Group, the R&B singer has been singing since the age of 6. Her passion for music led to her to begin song writing at 12 years old. Where most young girls were worried about the latest fashion trends and hairstyles , Fash Cash had her own agenda and becoming a star was in her plans. Read the article below to get a glimpse into her life.

  • What was it like growing up where you’re from?

When I was growing up, I was back and forth between Daytona and DeLand, so I experienced life growing up in Daytona Beach, as well as in DeLand. I would say growing up where I am from is no different than any other hood. You have your good experiences and you have your bad experiences, but for the most part you experience a lot growing up, whether it be good or bad.
Life has taught me to continue to be humble because being humble and having a personal relationship with God will take you further in life than trying to do everything yourself.

  • What was you turning point in life or an eye opening event that made you understand your purpose more clearly?

The turning point for me was when I wrote and recorded my first single “Lullaby Music”, because for years, I did nothing with my voices or writing abilities -I shied away from music. When I recorded that track, I felt it… I knew that I was to be sharing my gift with others, moving them through music.

  • What are some of your influences in the music field?

I grew up in one of the greatest eras of R&B history! So, naturally I was influenced by the biggest names of 90’s like Mariah Carey, Mary J Blige, Faith Evans, Aaliyah, Deborah Coxx, Brandy, Tamia, the list goes on…

  • Do you have any songs or videos the readers can check out?

Yes! I have “Lullaby Music”, “Married Man”, and “Without You” which can be listened to on my SoundCloud at https://soundcloud.com/fash-cash and also on my website at http://www.fashcashofficial.com.
The video “Married Man” can be viewed on Daily Motion, MUZU, and VEVO.

  • Your track “Married Man” is really deep. A lot of women settle for married men, what is your take on this?

I don’t want no married man! I don’t want nobody that belong to somebody else! I feel that in any instance, if you are aware that you are involved with a married man, you should leave. There’s no sense in carrying on a relationship with someone who doesn’t belong to you; someone who is already spoken for. You have to respect yourself and know your worth.’Cause everybody deserves someone they can call their own.

  • Tell me about your video shoot “Married Man”, I heard it was interesting.

I had a good time on the set of “Married Man”. I initially went in to do a photo shoot with Skyy Johnson, the photographer over at Skyy Johnson Studios. When I came on the set Dannie Ace was just finishing up her photo shoot. I was a little nervous because it was my first photo shoot, so when my shoot began, we cued in “Married Man” so that I could loosen up a bit. “Married Man” brought a different vibe to the set and Skyy decided that we go ahead and shoot the video for “Married Man”. I was combative at first because i just knew I was not prepared for a video shoot, but I came around to the idea. Dannie Ace agreed to feature in the video and we started filming. Just so happens, it came out GREAT!

  • Do you prefer to be on stage or in the studio, why?

Honestly, I haven’t been on stage in a while, but I can say that I enjoyed the feeling. I’m always in the studio, so at this moment I would rather be on stage performing.

  • What project are you currently working on?

I am currently working on some material for both my EP “Lipstick” and my mixtape “Beach Girl”.

  • Do you have any shows coming up?

I am currently studio bound, finishing up music for my EP “Lipstick which is set to release Spring, 2015. But shows are definitely in the works for 2015.

  • As a performer, you are a public figure without even trying to be. Will you stand with Keedie’s Corner and speak out against the senseless killings that are happening in America? How do you feel about the relationship between black men and police / authority figures?

Honestly, I feel as though the relationship between black men and police and other authority figures is the new form of the relationship between slaves and slave owners. The hatred, the oppression, the profiling, the killings, the inequality, the public displays of injustice gone unjustified against black men forces me to believe that we are entering an age that the police must be policed. But each individual’s heart will be judged in due time. We all have to answer to someone higher than ourselves.

FASH COVER

*****FLAME TIME*****

Right now, people keep up with “Love & Hip-Hop : Atlanta” stars as if they were part of their own families! The Vh1 show has taken off well beyond it’s expectations since its 2012 launch. The show has spawned off individual celebs…and power couples as well.

Benzino (All Hip-Hop Magazine) and his fiance, Althea Heart, have been on a tear these last couple of months. The couple has been rocking stages performing songs off their latest projects and the world has taken notice.

One song in particular has been getting a lot of talk and has also created it’s own replay value. Althea’s single “Ghetto Love” is what the crowd of Axess Event Center (Daytona Beach,FL) anticipated anxiously!

In her interview with Kaynah Lassiter (of Trinity Enterprise) she stated that the song described the love story between herself and Benzino. She also stated that they planned to get married and have yet to decide whether it would be on the television show or not.

We wish them both well and God bless the couple with a great future. Check Althea & Benzino’s performance of “Ghetto Love” below

Security guard quickly rushed to Brown and the rest of his table, and they were soon evacuated.

Miss me with the bulls–t!!!”In 2005, Knight was shot in the leg at Kanye West’s pre-VMAs party in Miami. He was also in the car with rapper Tupac Shakur when he was fatally shot in 1996.
