Anaconda, Beyonce, and Billboard: Today in Hip-Hop: One Year Since the Death of Shawty Lo @balleralert Today in Hip-Hop: One Year Since the Death of Shawty Lo-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ One year ago today, the world lost Atlanta native and rapper ShawtyLo. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Born Carlos Rico Walker, Shawty Lo got his start in music in 2003 as a founding member of the rap group D4L. Alongside other group members, Fabo, Mook-B and Stoney, the group had much success with their debut album 'Down for Life' which brought us chart topping hits like 'Laffy Taffy' and 'Betcha Can't Do It Me'. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ In 2007, just two years after D4L's album release, Walker released his debut solo single 'Dey Know'. The single was an instant hit, charting in the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 and earning him three Bet Hip-Hop Awards. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Walker died Sept. 21, 2016 from a car accident in Fulton County, Georgia. The accident happened around 2:20 a.m. when Walker's car went over a guardrail, hitting two trees, and catching fire. The rapper was ejected from the car and pronounced dead at the scene. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ While Walker died rather young at the age of 40, his career was impactful enough to earn him tributes from other great artists such as Beyonce, GucciMane, LilKim, Future, and many more. rip

Leonardo DiCaprio Calls Out Trump For Refusing to Acknowledge Climate Crisis; Says Hurricanes Should Be a Wake-Up Call – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Tuesday, LeonardoDiCaprio called out the Trump administration for their neglect to recognize the seriousness that is climate change. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ DiCaprio discussed the warnings about the realities of the climate crisis during a speech at the Yale Climate Conference, saying: “Quite simply, we are knowingly doing this to ourselves, to our entire planet, and we’re risking our very future. And the cost of our inaction these past couple weeks has become even clearer.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The actor and activist highlighted the recent natural disasters that have plagued the country, the Caribbean and Mexico, and used his platform to address the administration’s refusal to act on these important issues. DiCaprio also mentioned that he met with Trump late last year to discuss a plan to combat the climate issue, however, since then “the world has watched” Trump deny the important issue. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “We listened as they said that these powerful hurricanes that we’re seeing with Harvey and Irma did not change the president’s mind about climate change,” he said. “I still believe that the United States has the potential to lead the world on this issue. We can only hope that the president begins to see it to, before it is too late for all of us.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While, Trump is to blame for turning a blind eye to climate change, he is not the only one at fault. DiCaprio also called out Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Energy Secretary Rick Perry for their role in “perpetuating the lie.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Time is up. The current events have become a global wake-up call that must be heard all the way from you to the private sector, all the way to Washington, D.C. It is too late for any of us to be timid, or too ignorant or too silent. We all have to take action together, now.”

Ayesha Curry, Chef Curry, and Children: Ayesha Curry Becomes New Face of COVERGIRL @balleralert Ayesha Curry Becomes New Face of COVERGIRL - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The real Chef Curry is expanding her brand and lengthening her resume with a brand new partnership in the beauty industry. AyeshaCurry, best known for her work as a chef, author, television personality and dedicated mother-of-two will now be the newest face of the beauty brand, COVERGIRL. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “My philosophy is all about seeking joy and creating balance in life. I’ve shared a lot about how I do this with food, family and faith, but now = through my partnership with COVERGIRL – I want to share how makeup helps create those moments of happiness, confidence and self-expression,” Curry said. “People love when I post about beauty on social media, and of course it’s a big part of prepping for my TV show or an event. But I’m also a working mom without much time to spare, so I’ve figured out how to dial my looks way up or way down, and also to use make up as a way of bonding with my daughters.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The self-taught chef, with the help and support of her husband, used her life-long interest in food to build her brand. The idea, which started as a blog and slowly turned itself into a YouTube channel, ultimately transformed into a TV show called “Ayesha’s Home Kitchen.” Curry’s drive and constant pursuit of her passion is what drew the brand to her, as COVERGIRL continues to partner with people who “fearlessly and relentlessly pursue their passions and boldly express themselves to the world.” Mrs. Curry exemplifies just that. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “We love a self-proclaimed beauty junkie who speaks her mind and offers strong viewpoints and perspectives,” SVP Ukonwa Ojo said of the brand. “Ayesha has a joyful energy and a big personality, but she’s also extremely relatable. Dealing with things that so many woman face – from raising two children to running a business, to creating healthy meals for her family – she’s found a way to create balance. COVERGIRL loves spotlighting inspiring stories of women achieving their dreams, and inspiring other women to do the same.”
