Arguing, Family, and Friends: Rap Pioneer Who Popularized Term 'Hip Hop,' Lovebug Starski Dies At 57 @balleralert Rap Pioneer Lovebug Starski, Who Popularized The Term ‘Hip Hop,’ Dies At 57 - blogged by @lanaladonna ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Kevin Smith, a DJ from the Bronx, and better known as LovebugStarski who coined the term “hip-hop,” unfortunately passed yesterday at age 57. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ RollingStone reports his death was caused by a heart attack he had in Las Vegas, where he recently relocated. Starski’s daughter, Tiffany Smith, confirmed the cause of death. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Starski was among a core group of DJ pioneers that include DJKoolHerc, AfrikaBambaataa, GrandmasterFlash and GrandWizardTheodore. Rolling Stone says they all helped shape hip-hop’s parameters in the days before recorded rap in the 1970s. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ DJ Grandmaster Flash told rolling stone what made Starski so different from the rest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "What set him apart was he was able to DJ and talk on the mic and do both at the same time, and he was really really good at this," explained Flash. “He played an extremely important role in the development of this. We all do it now, talk on the mic and DJ same time, but in the hip-hop world, Starski was probably the first to handle it." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Some may argue that Keith “Cowboy” Wiggins of Grandmaster Flash and the FuriousFive introduced the word “hip-hop,” but Smith accepted credit for the term in an interview with Amoeba Music in 2017. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "That was one of my rhymes when I would get stuck for words and I used to go 'hip, hop, the hip, the hip, hip the hopping," he said. "You know it was just a nursery rhyme that coincided with the music, and that's the God's honest truth." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Condolences are sent to Smith’s family and friends.

In fact, the divorcee has 22 girlfriends to prove it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In an interview with GQ Magazine, the 84-year-old entertainment mogul opened up about his love life, and none of us were mentally prepared for what he had to say. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I got twenty-two girlfriends,” he chuckles. “I was married three times, man. Was told not to marry actresses or singers. I ended up with two actresses—Peggy Lipton and Nastassja Kinski, and a superstar model. I didn’t listen to all the advice.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However—despite his marital past, Jones doesn’t have any plans to tie the knot again anytime soon, especially since it’d be extremely hard to narrow down such a high number of girlfriends to just one wife, right? We’d imagine so. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When asked if he was serious about having 22 lovers, Jones blatantly says, “Hell yeah. Everywhere. Cape Town. Cairo. Stockholm-she’s coming in next week. Brazil-Belo Horizonte, São Paulo, and Rio. Shanghai, [I’ve] got a great girl over there, too, man.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Surprisingly, all of the women know of each other, as Jones proudly admits that “he doesn’t lie.” And, allegedly, most of them are between the ages of 28 and 42. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, when the question came up about if he’d ever date someone around his age, Jones was quick to shut that down. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Are you crazy?” He gives the interviewer a startled look. “For what, man? There’s nothing; there’s no upside. You gotta be kidding. I got me some technology out there that keeps [the] fat and old away from here. [It] buzzes if they’re too old. But, you’d be surprised. These women, the young ones, are aggressive now. Oh my God, they’re fearless, man. All over the world.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As you can see, Mr. Jones is still a rolling stone, even in his old age.

Blessed, Children, and College: Ballerific Woman - Issa Rae, From Youtube Star to HBO Superstar @balleralert Ballerific Woman - Issa Rae, From Youtube Star to HBO Superstar - Blogged by @Climb_This_Hill ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In a perfect world, men and women would receive equal pay. African American women would be presented the same opportunities as their white counterparts. Rejection would be based on qualifications rather than race. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Unfortunately, this world is far from perfect, however, there are people, more specifically women, who have dedicated their time, money and education to make a positive change. They’ve used their experiences and their encounters with injustices to fight and-or create more opportunities for their children and their children’s children, in an effort to make the world a better place. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They've put our pain and problems on their backs and created space for change, new opportunities for our brothers and sisters to excel and succeed in a world that is designed against us. This is BlackExcellence. These are BallerificWomen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of those special individuals is Ms. Issa Rae. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Best known for her hit HBO series, “Insecure," after making her break with her hit Youtube series, "Awkward Black Girl," Issa has blessed us with over 20 visual projects, which she either produced, starred in, or wrote. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Her YouTube channel has captured over 260,000 subscribers and 20 million views and counting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Proving not only to be a strong force and inspiration for women in general, Ms. Issa Rae, is a proven example that black women can be bosses too....but we already knew that! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She takes pride in being an actress, writer, director, producer and web series creator.

Ballerific Woman - Issa Rae, From Youtube Star to HBO Superstar - Blogged by @Climb_This_Hill ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In a perfect world, men and women would receive equal pay. African American women would be presented the same opportunities as their white counterparts. Rejection would be based on qualifications rather than race. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Unfortunately, this world is far from perfect, however, there are people, more specifically women, who have dedicated their time, money and education to make a positive change. They’ve used their experiences and their encounters with injustices to fight and-or create more opportunities for their children and their children’s children, in an effort to make the world a better place. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They've put our pain and problems on their backs and created space for change, new opportunities for our brothers and sisters to excel and succeed in a world that is designed against us.
