Quadruple Threat…beyond DOPE!

“Thursday and Friday I performed in Detroit. Saturday I performed at the University of Dayton. I had three finals on Tuesday, a show at Duke Wednesday, did a song with Wale and 9th Wonder Thursday, and Friday I had a meeting with Jay-Z.”

“feels like I’m running on walls/and I don’t wanna touch the ground/and if they say that I’m lost/then I don’t wanna be found”

“Most college boys spend their free time playing beer pong and hooking up with hot chicks. But Southfield, Michigan-bred producer/singer/songwriter Mike Posner, 21, doesn’t let the hedonistic side of life at Duke University derail him from his musical dreams.”

Have I been living under a rock?! How did I not know about this man? lol. The man I’m talking about is Mike Posner. If you know who I’m talking about I’m POSITIVE you think he’s dope. And for those of you who don’t, well you’re about to understand why. In fact, open his myspace, in a new tab, press play and then finish reading, our time’s not done. lol 🙂
So here’s how it happened. I was sitting in my room trying to relax, and I was in desperate need of hearing something new. I love discovering new music, the way art is expressed in different ways by all kinds of different people around the world just amazes me… I like finding “hidden jewels”, well in his case not so hidden. 

Anyway so I’m looking through my iTunes library and nothing’s appealing to me… So I go on a lil music hunt, and happily stumble upon Mike Posner. I am so impressed…
So who is Mike Poser? I can’t give you an accurate description as I’ve never met the guy. Yet. 🙂
He’s a 21 year old producer/singer/songwriter, currently in his senior year at Duke University, majoring in both sociology and business. AND his web series just premiered. Damn… Talented, Driven, and Educated. He’s like… perfect. lol
You know how people start learning about networking as they get older (late teens, early 20s, some never lol), well he started making beats at only 13, and began networking with other musicians through Internet message boards. What were you doing at 13?? 
He’s collaborated with artists like Kid Cudi, Wale, Big Sean, Jackie Chain, Donnis, One Be Lo, Eric Holljes, BMR, and 3OH3. He’s also worked with Don Cannon and DJ Benzi on A Matter Of Time. 
He wrote, produced, and recorded EVERY track on his debut mixtape; A Matter of Time in under 3 months! (he started in January, and it hit the web in March) His mixtape sparked a months-long bidding war among record labels, in which major recording label J Records were the proud victors.
A Matter of Time is OUT OF THIS WORLD. It’s like Hip Hop, R&B and Pop came together and made babies… tracks whatever, it’s crazy. I definitely recommend that you download it right now, if you haven’t already *wink wink*
Check out Episode 1: Back To School…And Off To Atlanta of Mike Posners webs series “One Foot Out The Door”. This is the premier episode where Mike heads back to Duke University for his senior year, while taking on Music as his full time career. Enjoy!

I can’t wait for his album and next mixtape!!!


So I’ve had thee worst case of writers block, or as Cahill would call it “blog choke” lol. Okay, no not really, that’s impossible as there’s tonnes of stuff that I’d like to share with you guys. As I’m back in school full-time, and just started a new full-time job (yay!), my time’s been kinda limited; but it’s all good I’ve handled it. I honestly didn’t wanna bore you guys with just anything, there’s nothing worse than reading a piece you know is a “filler” on a blog lol (i’m jus sayin, this is not a shot at anybody lol). I just like to put effort in everything I share with you guys, giving you an experience through my words and pics… 🙂
A lot has happened in the last week, but I’d rather give you guys some current ish, so stay tuned… B’s Back In Action baby!
*big red kisses!*


The 2012 Phenomenom

There’s tonnes of talk about what’s going to happen on December 12, 2012… Some say it’s the end of the world… the apocalypse…doomsday etc; this belief is based primarily on what is claimed to be the end date of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar, which is said to last 5,125 years; ending on December 21, or 23, 2012, as well as various interpretations of scriptures, numerological constructions, prophecies etc. We’ve all heard em’!
Others believe that during this time, we will undergo a positive physical or spritual transformation (a global “consciousness shift”, and that 2012 may mark the beginning a new era for us as well as our planet… *dances around happily*
And then there’s those that believe that people have simply mis-interpreted and manipulated Maya history as well as the calendar…
I’m an optimist, I like to see the glass as half full; so if anything IS going to go down, I’m FOR the “global consciousness shift” 🙂

Google Wave

HELLS ya…. Google Wave hopes to replace e-mail as the main way people communicate online.

I am so excited about this.. You should be too. The Web application from Google Inc. combines elements of e-mail, chat, Wiki documents, blogs and photo-sharing sites to create a form of Internet communication called a “hosted conversation,” or a “wave.”
Google demonstrated Wave at the Google I/O developer conference in San Francisco, California, in May. The closed group of beta testers will help Google fish bugs out of the application before a public release by the end of the year, according to the Google Wave Web site.
The app was created by Jens and Lars Rasmussen, the Australian brothers who developed Google Maps. The Rasmussen brothers said they hope Google Wave will eventually replace e-mail as the main way people converse on the Internet. “This should be something everybody uses and something everybody knows,” Jens Rasmussen said.
In Wave, e-mail-like communications can be edited by several users simultaneously. And users can chat about certain sections of Wave documents in real time, where all users see what a person is typing as it is typed. If a person comes to the conversation late, they can replay everything they’ve missed.

The Rasmussens hope these functions will make online communication more efficient and collaborative.

100,000 beta testers will be released Wednesday. So if you have one, please send it to me!
