What’s Galentine’s Day? Oh, it’s only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home and just kick it breakfast style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus, frittatas!

First introduced in 2010 during the second season of Parks & Recreation, Galentine’s Day is another Parks & Rec holiday that became a reality just like Treat Yo Self. Whether you are going out for drinks, having brunch, or just staying at home with your girls, check out a playlist below for your Galentine’s Day festivities.

Also, check out a clip from the first Galentine’s Day episode.

Big Sean Announces “Unfriendly Reminder” Tour Where Fans Can Choose The Setlist

unfriendly-reminder-tour

Big Sean announced his new Spring tour called “Unfriendly Reminder.”  The name is fitting since Big Sean is celebrating about a decade in music and throughout his career he is often underrated.  Also, sometimes some of his songs don’t get their due while on tour. This time around, fans get to submit their own setlist for the tour and the songs that get the most votes will be played.  Each city has its own voting system, so because of this, each city could have an entirely different show.

I think this is an incredible idea and I’m surprised that this isn’t more popular for other tours.  Usually during a tour, artists only perform their singles, or just songs of their most recent albums and a lot of B-sides fall by the wayside.  In the voting system, Big Sean included all his albums, mix tapes, and most songs that he is featured on.  You can also write in songs for your vote.

I’ve seen Big Sean live a couple times and know some of his go-to songs to perform live, and some are my favorites, so I included them in my setlist, but I also did include songs from the Detroit mixtape and my favorite songs for The Social Experiment album, Surf, “Wanna Be Cool.”  Also, one of my guests verse “Paper Scissors Rock” from Chris Brown’s album F.A.M.E. was also included. I love the line “we connected, then need space. I swear all love was written in cursive.”

Check out Big Sean’s tour announcement and my setlist below. You can also check out pictures and the setlist from his last Chicago show here.

Kendrick Lamar and SZA release video for Black Panther’s “All The Stars”

Kendrick and SZA released the first visual for the Black Panther soundtrack.  The video was directed by Dave Myers & the little homies, who have directed all the videos for Kendrick’s Damn. album thus far.

A lot of times when a music video is made for a song from a movie soundtrack, its usually just filled with clips of the movie.  However, Dave Myers & the little homies did not take that shortcut and created a visual that kept with the spirit of Black Panther will its African influences, but still is able to stand as a video on its own.

My favorite scene is the gold room. It definitely plays a trick with the eyes will all the layers, and you aren’t sure what is physical and what is digital.

✊🏾 @socialworks_chi

A post shared by Chance The Rapper (@chancetherapper) on

 
Chance The Rapper’s non-profit, SocialWorks, is hosting a Black History Month Film Festival in Chicago. Movies will be shown every Friday and Saturday this month, with The Wiz first up. Other movies that will be shown to the public are Malcolm X, Black Panther and Ali. There will be a pre-show party for Black Panther including a DJ set, photobooth and giveaway for people who show their Black Panther ticket. There will be a private, invite only event for a showing of the movie Shot In The Dark, a basketball documentary that Chance produced.

Tickets for these events are $7 online or in person. Also, with a ticket for any movie that is bought online using promo code SMGChange, $1.50 will be donated to Social Works. For more information, click here.

I find this to be exciting because I feel like their aren’t any huge celebrations for Black History Month. I think it is important to celebrate the culture in all its forms and I hope to see more events like this.

Migos Explains The Difference Dripping and Spilling While Getting Ready For The Grammys With Vogue

Vogue went behind the scenes to see Migos get ready for the Grammys, and we got a lot of insider information about the group.

First and foremost, we got to see Migos without their glasses, which doesn’t happen often.  It was funny to see because when they all where glasses, they look very much alike, but without glasses, they are all different and don’t look that similar.

Migos shared their fashion inspiration being Michael Jackson.  Offset sang some Michael Jackson and his mom said that he has loved Michael since he was a little boy.

Quavo explained the difference between dripping and spilling when it comes to fashion. Dripping means there is a lot going on (adornments, etcetera) and slipping means there is too much going on.

It was great to see the guys lighter side in this video.  Check it out above.

 

Acts To Make Sure To Check Out At Rolling Loud Miami 2018

rl18final

The very anticipated line-up for Rolling Loud Miami was just released, and I have to say it was not overhyped at all. Every act I am willing to see, even acts that I haven’t heard before because hip-hop is definitely my wheel house. I also feel like I would discover a lot of new music here.

Acts that I for sure would want to check out each day are:

Friday: J. Cole, N.E.R.D., Young Thug, Jaden Smith, Juvenile, Smino

Saturday: Travis Scott, Migos, Wiz Khalifa, Cardi B, Gucci Mane, Metro Boomin, Fetty Wap,

Sunday: Future, Lil Wayne, 21 Savage, Juicy J, Machine Gun Kelly

Friday is the best night in my opinion. I’ve said several times I’m a fan of Smino and he puts on a great show. I’m very curious on a Jaden Smith show and what Juvenile will bring to the stage.

Tickets go on sale February 2 here. Prices have yet to be announced.
