  1. Rest in Peace to Super Producer/Composer Carl "Chucky"Thompson, I used to play keys when I was in middle school and I think that it was his keys and lush arrangements that set him apart from the rest of "The Hitmen" on the scene in the late 90s. It was not only lush, it was live instrumentation, intricate background vocals, and literally this man helped to create "MY LIFE" (Mary J. Blige), timeless hits for The Notorious B.I.G. , introduced amazing new artists like: NONCHALANT, FRANKIE, EMILY KING and others. His music moved me then, and made me wanna take songwriting seriously. I'll miss this brother and praying peace for his remaining family.

  2. I can not believe that I even remembered my password on here, after all these years. Omg. I talked to Jamie and was coming over here a while back but my sister died and my world turned upside down. How is everyone???????? I hope everyone is staying safe in this covid-19 situation. And hope this is in the right forum .

  7. Unless you're referring to something I'm not recalling, I don't really fault him for not putting his business out in the street. Some of the personal stuff that came out later wasn't really the public's business. I wouldn't consider him keeping some things private lying. I'm also hoping he focuses a lot on the early days and music, but I'm prepared for this to be aimed at the mainstream audience.

  10. As an optimist, I always thought he was going to pull out of his health issues. In recent years, Biz has lived about an hour from me and frequently DJ's at a venue I like, but I never made it out on the nights he was spinning. I'm really regretting that. I did see him spin at the Will Smith & Friends event years ago. I also saw him at the recording for MTV's Back In Black, Men In Black special. The last time I saw him was when I saw TLC in 2015, in which New Kids On The Block brought him out in the middle of their set to perform. Biz Markie is one of a kind. He is Hip-Hop's class clown. Few emcees are as fun-loving as him. I think because he can be so silly, we don't recognize him for the song writer that he is, the producer he is, and how much music knowledge he has. There have been some great tributes over the last couple days and they shed more light on that side of him. There's a reason he was tight with JJ+FP. We lost a legend. It's a shame that it took this loss for him to get some light shed on his music, but let's hope it's recognized the way it deserves to be.

  14. DJ Jazzy Jeff, The Fresh Prince and a Grammy boycott that set the tone for three more decades of rap — and culture https://theundefeated.com/features/dj-jazzy-jeff-the-fresh-prince-and-a-grammy-boycott-that-set-the-tone-for-three-more-decades-of-rap-and-culture/ ------------- It's an older article but it's still interesting. I knew about the boycott but it's always great to read more about it.

  15. It's been slow as heel lately with any new news so maybe this will count for something. Warner Bros has released a short clip highlighting all of its 2021 premieres ... including King Richard ... so you can see the film's logo and a half-a-second clip of Richard with venus and Serena :) https://youtu.be/k5HSGjg4FRg In the time of nothingness even half-a-second counts as something :)

  17. What a wonderful reunion! Touching and emotional, with great behind-the-scenes footage. A fantastic gift for all the fans. It's amazing to see how many people and generations this show has touched. And after all these years, it feels 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' is more popular than ever. So good to see them back together! The James Avery tribute was perfect. A beautiful moment where words were not necessary to express how they feel about his loss. Very emotional so them all crying The Janet part was also a big one. I'm glad Will and she could have an honest conversation, and that she could express how she has felt during all this time to his face, the pain she says she's gone through. Hopefully they have a better relationship from now on. And I also loved that she asked to join the rest of the cast too, it was very nice to see them together. But I'm wondering, why wasn't Alfonso there when she entered the set? It was strange that he wasn't with the rest in that moment. Maybe it was because that part was filmed at a different time, who knows. But I'm hoping it's not because he didn't want to see her. Anyway, at the end of the day, it's their business. I also feel they didn't give enough time to Joseph. It would have been interesting to hear him talk about hot he got the role too, like the others. Or to hear him share some stories from his experience on the show. I'm definitely watching it again. It brings back so many great memories.. What a legendary show!!

  20. Incredible. Uncle Phil tribute, Janet reconciliation, Ross Bagley showing up, it was everything it needed to be. I quite like that it was an intimate setting for the cast, made it feel more like a reunion than a documentary. Loved it. My allergies kept playing up though, which was annoying ;)

    Yeah, I love Volume 2. I posted it on my Facebook after I got the heads up for Speech and Eshe about it. I should have tagged you in it. I'm glad you posted the new R&B one here, because I've wanted to watch it, but haven't had the time yet.
