I'm still in shock..Still at a lost for words..2 nights ago I was in my studio working. 1:30 am I look up and in walks the Legendary Big Gipp from Goodie Mob. I tried not to go into fan/groupie mode and kept it professional. He gave us an ATL music history lesson for about an hour before we even started working on the record. This is 1 moment I'll never forget.
New music on the way.
Runway Richy x Big Gipp x Mo Diggidy Beats - How you feelin
Runway Richie's new video for "Keep Getting It" takes us on a journey through Atlanta's slums as one young man lets his thirst for riches get the best of him. I enjoy most of Richie's music and I've got to host more than a few shows where he's performed. This is probably my favorite song of his, glad that it got a Motion Family video treatment.

BET Rip the Runway hosts Pooch Hall and Selita Ebanks
BET's 'Rip the Runway' debuted Wednesday night (March 21) and the spectacle of designer threads was supported by a live soundtrack, where rappers and R&B artists dropped lyrics as models strutted down the catwalk at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.
Wale hit the stage for 'Lotus Flower Bomb,' all while dressed in a camouflage vest and red kicks. His Maybach Music Group affiliate Meek Mill, donning an Indian yellow jacket, got the crowd on their feet for 'House Party.' Diggy Simmons brought crooner Jeremih along with him for 'Do It Like You' and B.o.B. showcased his new single 'So Good.'
An opaque catsuit-wearing Lil' Kim made a return to the stage with classic tracks like 'Crush on You,' 'It's All About the Benjamins' and her song 'If You Love Me.' Robin Thicke got the ladies attention by crooning through 'Pretty Lil' Heart' sans Lil Wayne and Estelle gave a thrilling performance of 'Back to Love.'
Model Selita Ebanks and actor Pooch Hall hosted the fashion extravaganza.
Not long after the Diplomats reunited and started working together again last year, it seemed like Cam'ron and Jim Jones were up to their old tricks again as they released a freestyle over Kanye West's "Runway" production.
In an online clip of the rowdy pair in the studio, Cam'ron takes a couple of shots at 'Ye before he lays his verse. A couple of months later, though, in a puzzling move, West recruited Cam and Capo for his "Christmas in Harlem" track. According to Cam, however, there had only been a minor disagreement between the two in the first place. And that rift has since been patched up.
"The reason I took a shot at Kanye, he needed something done for his album [a couple of years ago, and] when he needed it, I sent it back to him in about an hour," Cam told MTV News during his appearance with Dipset on "RapFix Live" on Thursday. The Harlem MC was referring to the song "Gone" from West's 2007 LP, Late Registration.
Kristin Haskins Simms, progressive fashion designer has moved on to the next step of her meteoric rise to the halls of fashions elite.
On last nights Project Runway, Kristin's innovative dress design fell short of Project Runways sometimes rigid judging process. Kristin spoke to Black Vibes about her experience on Project Runway:
"Even though I was eliminated early, I was not outraged or upset about it. In fact I was relieved because it just wasn't my place to shine. There was a great disconnect between my portfolio of work and what I produced on Project Runway. And I only have myself to blame. I am more organic in my design process and the unnatural circumstances of Project Runway affected my capabilities. I applied on a whim and dare after being encouraged by strangefruit customers, family and friends. I felt like I had already won by simply being casted on the show and I am so grateful for the opportunity."
For all of you fashion followers a hot new designer has entered the race! Kristin Haskins Simms has been grinding on the indy fashion scene for years with her cutting edge Strange Fruit Clothing line. She has finally broken through to the mainstream with her addition to the cast of this season's Project Runway which started last night (and she made the cut!!)
Kristin a graduate of The University of Pennsylvania seeks to win this years Project Runway and the accompanying large cash prize to jump start her cutting edge fashion line.
