All I have to say is “she is a baddie”. I love Amber, Amber Rose that is. She is confident, super curvy, she embraces it with no apologies with style, sex appeal, poise, personality and beauty. Amber stole the spotlight on the red carpet of the 2014 VMA’s. Wearing a Laurel DeWitt chain dress Mrs. Rose posted “Not one single f-ck was given” on a video of her walking the red carpet yesterday. If my body looked like that after having a baby I would rock the hell out of that dress too.
If you don’t have anything nice to say, your simply a hater. That’s how I feel and that’s all that matters on PrettynPoppington. Smooches

Under this Facebook photo the caption read REST IN PEACE MICHAEL BROWN…THIS ONES FOR YOU! #HANDSUP When I saw this It brought joy to my heart for the simple fact that individuals from my city are supporting this national tragedy with now a world wide gesture, holding both arms in the air with palms faced forward.
Charleston has experienced similar heartbreak, tragedy and senselessness in the case of Denzel “Jaba” Curnell, 19 who died from a bullet wound to the head after an encounter with a South Carolina police officer. I do not know the victim or is family at all, but when I heard this story it literally hurt my sole to the point where I couldn’t continue with the rest of my day. I’m not sure why I felt so emotional, but never the less I did. In Denzel “Jaba” Curnell’s case things have became silent in the “good ole boy” city and state of Charleston SC, but the movement, situation and cause to end murder of black men by white authority figures will continue through Michael Brown.
These two black men had promising futures, they were someones children and maintained positive influences for self and others…they were growing young men embarking on higher education and thriving lives. Now they’re gone due to hatred, fear, and the lack of value due to the color of their skin. #HANDSUP
I was asked to post on a young artist by the name of Lil Tia so that she could gain more exposure for her talents and debut album. I typically do not post on artist by request, but I must admit, I’m glad I made the exception. Lil Tia started rapping in class when her teacher developed a game to help with math. She enjoyed rapping her math lesson and fell in love with the lyrical content of word play and began writing songs. She then started a short live group that left her in July 2012. Lil Tia has been on her own ever since, with the guidance of her mom, and manager Colors. She is a true teen growing into her music. It’s refreshing to see a young artist with talent releasing music that relates to her life as well as her peers. Lil Tia is a well rounded young entertainer stepping into other areas of performing. Her film debut will be the highly anticipated indie film, A COUGAR STORY, by Sandra Wilson, where Lil Tia plays her teenage daughter. This fifteen year old is driven for success and making all the right moves to get to where she wants to be. Her debut album “THEY AIN’T READY FOR A GIRL LIKE ME” dropped AUG 10th 2014 it featuring: COLORS, SLIM, MAG, HARMONY ELLA, G-STEEL, PREZ DUKITT, FETTI BOI, SHAUN TREEZY, LUL RENA, JV, and EBONY JENKINS.
J-Vive another dope artist that has something to actually talk about besides having sex and selling drugs. Don’t get me wrong, I have and do listen to trap music and mainstream music from time to time, but it’s refreshing and soul cleansing to listen to good music. It’s that simple, good music, music with a meaning, a message, lyrical content, and the best part, it’s independent. J-Vive is a true musician, his musical talents surpasses one style or genre. He’s musically inclined in all facets of music in general. Check him out below.
This next video gives you a feel of Vive’s personality and what goes on behind the scenes, and not to mention a cypher takes place…I love a good cyphers, for a minute there I thought he was gonna hop on those drums, yes he does that too.
A few weeks ago I came across a great article that was posted on the Women of Hip Hop. They featured Miami Blaize, and her hot single off the Firerella Ep, I Got It. Listen to the lyrics of this song. She has something to say and she is not afraid to express her thoughts. They lyrics are nice. Below is a snippet of what the article had to offer. Keep your eyes on this one, she is going to the top, and that’s not a bias response slipping through because she’s from the Chuck aka Charleston SC, that’s the truth. I’m proud and a little bias…lol
Miami Blaize has Got It while She keeps it Gone with the Wind Fabulous repping South Carolina and making MFs Masturbate as She Rhymes while lettin em know signing Her to a deal should be a no brainer. Listen to the up and coming Miami Raptress do Her thing below and stay tuned for the September release of Her upcoming “FIRERELLA” Ep! ~Woman of Hip Hop~
Beyonce has given everyone the response they were looking for to the elevator brawl between her sister Solange and husband Jay-Z. I love her response by the way, it was a boss ass statement to make, while rapping, and to put some stank on it she has Nicki Minaj as a featured rapper. All of this you can catch on the Flawless remix . She’s a baddie can’t deny it. The lyrics that were recited by Bey are below and the tack may be down there as well so you can hear Nicki’s verses, Check it out.
These thots can’t clock me nowadays
You wish I was your poundcake
Boy you know I look good as f-ck
Wish I was your baby mama
Want me to come around and give you good karma
Up in this b-tch like elevators
Of course sometime sh-t go down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator
Of course sometime sh-t go down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator
Goddamn, Goddamn, Goddamn
Would you like to hear it?…oh ok, press play below

Messy Mayweather is at it again. Floyd Mayweather was questioned about T.I during a press conference for his upcoming Marcos Maidana fight. He was asked by a fan in the crowd, “what about T.I” and his response was not so nice. Messy Mayweather responded by saying, -what about the b-tch? I was f-ckin’ his b-tch. Money Mayweather gon’ make it do what it do, baby!- Come on Floyd, why rehash a dead situation and make things so nasty after you gave such a heart felt apology to Tiny and her family on Necole Bitchie in an exclusive interview.
