Ha ha I thought #LaurenZander was my lil secret. Even Halle knows what time it is. I’m certain one of my books will be about how LZ got me to a new amazing place in my life (people ask “what kinda diet am I on?” I answer truthfully: “MENTAL HEALTH leads to all types of freedom and infinite possibilities!” (Most of us default to alcohol/drugs/sex/food/overworking/cutting/or whatever lie we live to get us through the day 🤷🏾♂️ ) good to know Lauren is changing our way of thinking about ourselves one painful step at a time. #Repost @halleberry ・・・ Hey hey hey...it’s SELF CARE SUNDAY! In honor of that, today’s #HBBooksFromBed is for any of you, like me, who find times when you need to make shifts in the way you do life so you can live out loud and reach your full potential! Whether that be in work, love or friendships. Maybe It’s YOU, by #LaurenHandelZander offers up not only sound advice, but clear road maps to guide you along your path. This read recently inspired me to make huge shifts in my life and I’m already seeing the benefits! Enjoy 💥 #SelfCareSunday
Lot of us are fatigued. Most of us are weary and gave up. I heard it all before “system is rigged” “system don’t include us” etc....I dunno what it is...but keep an eye on @repayannapressley #AyannaPressley. Walks it like she tawk it. She a real one. She needs accomplices—not just support and likes. We can’t do this lying down y’all.
I’m telling you. There will never ever be another @DaveNewYork Damn this hurts. I know he is in the new reality, the new world making a beeline to Dilla listening to a new batch. Strength and love to his family and loved ones. He was such a good person. Beyond that “ride or die” “give you the shirt off his back” stuff. He was truly loved and was love. We will miss him.
Almost forgot to acknowledge HipHop’s birthday Aug 11th 1973 @officialdjkoolherc 46 years of hip hop
You may not know her but damn if #KatreeseBarnes didn’t effect us w her music in some way shape or form. Rnb/Boogie genre fans (& hip hop heads that have #AZ’s Do Or Die Album ) of course remember her forever classic jam #SugarFree back when her band with her brother Jerry (#Juicy ) was hittin (old school heads remember #BeatStreetStrut too from the movie )—- In a move that I’m borderline certain she herself couldn’t call, she made her mark in history as co-writer/producer of some of the most hilarious memorable musical moments of SNL’s history. Including the groundbreaking mega viral and Emmy winning #DickInABox (but all of those songs from 2006-2011 era —-including my fav jam The Mcgruber theme & the “Yay/Nay” Senate song Will Forte did in weekend update that I prolly watched 50leven times. She was really supportive and so happy for us when we took the Late Night gig w Jimmy. She ALWAYS took time out to school/show us ropes on this new MD/musician union/tv scoring life we just got into. I also recognized she looked out for all of the true masters often hooking them up w gigs too (was always wonder for the longest “Why all the great session singers of NYCs past were ALWAYS at NBC?” Such a sad loss for the music community on a whole. Kind soul and beautiful sister. Rest In Melody
2155158031....text a bro. Imma bout to take this communication jawn to the NEXT LEVEL (note: already put this on IG story and 8000 texted—-got overwhelming after 200 responses—-but seriously this is me and I’m sane doing this )

Aug 3 83 the legendary Purple Rain recordings took place (also of note @wigmusic ’s first show as a member of @therevolution ) my fav performance was the #DMSR encore which offered a glimpse of the future. The whole “stop on a dime”/well tuned machine that the unit displayed for the next 2 years in my opinion was forever unmatched. Historical night at @firstavenue

Just heard about the passing of Brother Todd this morning. So sad man. This was a crucial foundation that helped build my hip hop knowledge (especially in territories I didn’t know about ) rest in power Brother Todd.

& here it is: book number 1,2,3,fo,FiF!!” My first cookbook (drumroll please! ) #MixtapePotluck I mixed together my passion for music & food by bringing together over 50 of my pals– a mix of chefs, entertainers, artists, thought leaders & musicians – for the ultimate potluck party. They brought the recipes. I brought the music by pairing each personality with what I think best reflects them. Together we vibe with good food and music and highlight the beautiful synergies between the two.

#TheListening, the 2002 debut by #LittleBrother is for hip hop what the self titled #NewYorkDolls 73 debut was for punk culture. What 1974’s #InspirationInformation by #ShuggieOtis was for abstract funk. What @GaryNuman ’s 81 “Dance” album was for @Prince ’s Minniapolis creative assault & perhaps the entire #Sylvers MGM/Pride catelogue was for bubblegum soul. It provided context and a vision for the future very quietly. When history is written, many a revisionist will bestow #CollegeDropout w accolades and props on introducing the world to a 3 dimensional flesh and blood view of modern black struggle. Something hip hop avoided its first 2 decades. Truth is North Carolina’s Little Brother was Ye’s blueprint long before he had a deal. Drake has gone on record to sing Little Brother’s praises in how instrumental their line blurring of singing and mcing was for him. This album pioneered SoundCloud producers & blog mcs. I laughed so hard when @9thwonder told me he used something called #FruityLoops & garage band to record this entire album. “Fruit What!!!??”—-I’m not laughing no more. Until the @westsidegunn movement (we can add @freddiegibbs @anderson _paak & @rocmarci too ) LB was truly the last hip hop movement I cared about AS A FAN w/o dissecting & listening as a peer. Peep the documentary on @okayplayer tomorrow on the making of a revolution that you don’t even know about
Yo!!!! I was 6 secs old before I was made aware that 😏 was a flirt emoji In my head that 😏 was a shameful/embarrassed/defeated expression. As in: “My bad i been dragging my feet all day imma be late for rehearsal y’all 😏” “Yo man y’all did y’all thing! that game was crazy!!! I’m proud of y’all journey! I know y’all tried 😏 next year will be the year!!!!!” Or “Can we workout day after tomorrow yo? I worked late and got caught up binging Doctor Who 😏” “I slipped and had a tastykake 😏” I just got roasted something awful for not knowing this!—-the gazillion times I’ve used this in the wrong context and NOT A SOUL CORRECTED ME. Now I’m thinking about all the secret group chats discussing my apparent flirt game I wasn’t instigating. Why did no one correct me?! (Then again....my band let an entire 24 hours go by w/o letting me know my shirt was on backwards AND inside out—-(I got home, looked in the mirror mad af they said nothing....😏 )
All respect due to one of my fav comedies. 30 years ago tonight #Seinfeld made its tv debut. Still solid. Still funny.
A 4 year old drew this. Happy Independence Day.
I deed It! #BottleCapChallenge!!!!!
🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔 Am I Doing This Right? #BottleCapChallenge
A tutorial for everyone in the OTHER post asking how to play #ShuffleCulture—- you have to swipe down on your iPhone and you will see the RECORD OPTION that lets you record anything from clips to your own FaceTime conversations (it gives you 3 secs to record so switch to Spotify/Apple Music/Tidal etc ) press random option then record! )
