Interview with War Chyld: The future of hip-hop belongs to the fans.

Rap Artist War Chyld

Rap Artist War Chyld

Nowadays,   you might say hip-hop is the new sex: it’s everywhere and everybody’s doing it. Although we have our own perspective on the future of hip-hop,  it’s  great to get an idea of where our most favorite art is headed,  from someone who is actually doing it well.

War Chyld, independent rapper from Philly, who gave us songs like  “Google me Now,” and “Honeymoon” featuring Slim from 112, is no stranger to underground hop-hop ciphers, and the mainstream version of hip-hop we see everyday. “hip-hop is headed in a direction where, it’s what each individual  fan makes it,” says War Chyld. “You can go to Walmart and buy a little poppy CD that’s all over ICarly…or go buy an underground legend like Sean Price.  Hip-hop hasn’t gone away, its still here.”

I remember when hip-hop used to be a cult-art, where you could pick a fan out of a crowd from miles away could maybe guess what he  or she was listening to and be right 90 percent of the time. “Hip-hop use to be just hip-hop, then they started using it in burger king commercials… and people  started feeling like, ” well I could be a rapper,” says War Chyld. “They take our culture and say… take a 12 year old with a Mohawk  and put him in a  commercial, because it’s all good and anybody can rap. They made a mockery out of hip-hop, but  to me, the heart of hip-hop  still beats.”

It seems to me that there’s two versions of hip-hop now,  the version we here on the radio, and the heart of the music, which you have  to do a little digging to find.  Click here for part II.

WOMEN SURVEYED: Most easily aroused parts of a women’s body, even when she’s fully clothed

Have you ever been out with a girl and wanted to do something sexy, but didn’t want it to be something that was obvious to everyone else around? There are many super sensitive places on a woman’s body that are in plain sight even when she’s fully dressed, and every loves a little PDA sometimes.

1. The infamous neck.

The neck is a hot spot for men and women, all the time. A great way to get a woman aroused in plain sight is to whisper in her ear a secret.  You can whisper whatever you want in her ear, but make sure your lips touch her neck at some point, and say some words with the H sound in them so a bit of your breathe can tickle her neck.  If she’s into you, her eyes will sort of roll, in a “feel’s good” sort of way, or she might grab her neck when your done, as if she’s bracing herself for what’s next.  If she’s not into you, she won’t even let you get close enough to feel her neck. Give it a shot and let me know how it goes.

2. The ears.

The ears are really sensitive and can easily get a woman aroused, but there are some rules to follow when activating the ears in public.  A moderate level of comfort and attraction has to already be established before you can use the ears in public, otherwise it will just seem too creepy. Basically, If  you’ve had sex with the girl already, then it’s safe to use the ears in  public. The back of the ear is the most sensitive part of the ear itself and the best way to reach it in public is to actually touch it, more like, caress it.  If the two of you are sitting side by side, put your arm around her shoulder and sort of pull her into your chest, then lightly grab her ear, fingers in the front and your thumb behind the ear.  Once your hand is in place, rub your thumb up and down in a natural motion.  If she’s into you, she’ll sort of close her eyes in pleasure and she take a deep breathe when your done. If she’s not into you, she won’t even let you feel her ear.

Other places that were good, but didn’t make the list:

cheeks (the one’s on the face)

hands

shoulders

jaw line

Three things that men do that ALL women hate

man-upset-with-woman-630x423Let’s cut the chase, There are tons of things that men do, and that women do, that if one or the other would stop doing, the world would be a much better place, and probably with a much lower crime rate; but I digress.   If you want to know three things you, as a guy, can do to improve your relationships with the women in your life, then keep reading!

1. Once is enough…  

If you’re with a woman and she appears to be more quiet than usual. don’t keep asking her, “are you okay,” or “are you mad,” over and over and over again.  By the time you’re done drilling her on whether or not she’s mad or if she’s okay; irregardless to if she was mad before you started asking her, she’s definitely mad at you now for asking her the same question over and over and over again.  Ask once or twice at most, and then just drop it.  If she really has something to say she will say it eventually.

2. Operate on a don’t ask, don’t tell policyMen-And-Women

This means that when you start a new relationship, or if you’re with a woman; remember that it’s 2013 and all the saints left a long time ago.  Don’t drill her about old boyfriends, how many men she knows and things of that nature.  The men she knew before are just the past. They helped make her into  who she is now in some way or another; so don’t let past occurences screw up a good thing.

3. Leave your friends out of it

I’m pretty sure this goes for both men and women, but when it comes to relationships, both romantic or otherwise, don’t let your friends’ opinions influence you too much; take each piece of advice with a grain of salt.  Remember, at the end of the day it’s you by yourself; you have to live with each decision you make. Don’t end up regretting not doing something or regret having done something because your friend thought you should. Just be yourself and make you own choices.

Three fool proof ways to get out of the friend zone

Sound like you? Don't worry, we might be able to help you!

Sound like you? Don’t worry, we might be able to help you!

It sucks when you get put into the friend zone with a woman you really like; on the other hand, it’s probably your fault why you got put there in the first place.  Here are three of the most typical friend zone situations , and how you can make your way out of the friend zone, and into the end zone.

1. Scenario: you’re in the friend zone with a woman who dates a lot of broke-ass fast talkers

For some women, being a good friend is not enough. She’ll date tons of losers that seem to have nothing beyond a nice face and decent conversation before she’ll even consider you  more than a friend.  If you’re trying to get a woman who gets caught up in “game,” and seems to always end up with guys who have a lot of style, but are all talk and no punch, you need to put your money where your mouth is …LITERALLY.  This girl is attracted to assets-like what kind of car you have, where you work, and most importantly, what you are willing to share with her.  To get out of the friend zone with a woman who is attracted to material things because the men she chooses never spend money on her, you need to show her that you’re no cheap-skate to get out of the friend zone. Buy dinner without her asking, bring her flowers, wear some  nicer clothes around her. Show her that you are willing to share not just your heart, but your wealth as well.

2. Scenario: you’re in the friend zone with a woman who’s dated a lot of guys who have money, and already makes good money on her own.

Some women don’t see material things as the deal breaker. If you are in the friend zone with a woman who is used to having nice things, or being with men who don’t mind spending money on her; to get out of the friend zone with  her you have to show that you care about her much more than a friend ever could, and that you only want to see her happy in the end.  In order to do this, during times when she really needs someone to be there for her, maybe she’s going through emotional struggles, maybe she’s very insecure about something, maybe she’s having a hard time dealing with something another guy has done to her; you have to be there for her until she is over the situation, without trying to make a move. Once the smoke is cleared she’ll realize that you are the one true person that will have her back through everything, and she’ll start to see you in a different light.

3. Scenario: you’re in the friend zone with a woman that you already do so much for, that you should be her boyfriend, but sadly, you’re not!

3. Here’s our last type.  In this case, let’s say that for this woman, you’re her door mat: you do everything for her, you buy her things, you listen to her problems, you’re always there, but you’re still in the friend zone; the only way to change your situation is to leave her alone. Stop doing things for her, and start putting your energy into women who are really interested in you.  After some time, this woman will realize how much you being there really meant to her and she’ll come looking for you.

Beware: these will only work if the woman is already physically/sexually attracted to you.  If not, FORGET IT!

Michael Kors: Watches that make women break their NECKS!

A lot of women love designer Michael Kors; he’s a judge on Project Runway, and one of the best designers known to man!  I think more women wear his fashions than men; and yes, his clothes are expensive!  Just recently, I took a trip to Lord and Taylor and noticed a whole collection of Michael Kors men’s watches. There’s nothing more timeless than a good time-piece! Check out some of my favorites for men.

Three Ways To Treat Your Girl That Don’t Involve You Spending Money!

Sometimes if you’re in a relationship or dating, it’s hard to tell what she really wants from you after about a month in.  When it comes down to it; it’s not always about gifts, going out, or spending money all the time.  Here are some things you can do for her that speak volumes over an expensive date (for a girl that really cares about you).

Help her take her weave out

First of all, It might be a while before the girl even let’s you know officially that her hair is not real, but you’ll find out soon enough. If she doesn’t wear weave, do things like: take out her ponytail of help her flat iron the back of her hair. Helping take out her weave will let her know that you think she’s  beautiful even without all the bells and whistles; that you accept her the way she is.  This will make her feel even more comfortable around you, and with that comfort comes more trust.

If she’s trying to loose weight, buy her a milk shake

Women are ALWAYS trying to loose weight, no matter what.  We do it because we are constantly trying to be prettier than the next chic. Messing up her diet plan (with a milkshake or one of her favorite foods)  shows that you like the way she looks, and that even if this diet doesn’t go well (which it probably won’t) , you’ll still tear-that-ass-up

PDA in front of her friends

If she’s got three friends, trust me, at least two of them are haters and would hop into bed with you in a heart beat. No matter what, don’t act on your impulse to do charity for bumb-chics; neither one of them are half the women that your girl is, that’s why they hate on her. When she’s around them, give  her a good kiss and/or hug her  tight and grab her butt at the same time.  This will make her feel really special; and more importantly, it will show her friends that you are down for her and aren’t hardly thinking about any of them.

If the woman you are dating is a good match for you, these little things will mean something to her.  You’ll always take her on dates and buy her gifts; but not every man will do these kinds of things for her.  Just be careful what kind of girl you do this for; all of these will lead to increased trust, which means more vulnerability on her part. As a result, she’ll want more trust and vulnerability from you.

Man Food: finger lickin hot-ass wing sauce, YOU’LL NEVER ORDER WINGS AGAIN

So, everyone loves a good hot-wing.  Wings (my personal favorite) are so delicious that I could eat them everyday, but some restaurants are really inconsistent; one day they’re good the next day they’re really bad.  With this really simple wing sauce recipe, I promise you’ll want to put it on everything: it’s THAT good!

Ingredients

1 bag of frozen chicken wings

1 stick of butter

1 cup of hot sauce (whatever brand is your favorite)

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)

Basil (optional)

1 tbs honey (optional)

Bowl of "Wings"

Chicken

Fry the chicken without any salt or flour: just plain. Fry the chicken until the skin is completely crunchy; don’t burn it though.  I guess you could bake the chicken too, as long as the chicken turns out nice and crunchy.  If the skin is not crunchy, the chicken is going to be nasty.  Make sure your oil is really hot before you try to fry the chicken.  An easy way to check if oil the hot is to take a tiny pinch of flour  (if you have it) and drop the pinch into the oil.  If it sizzles, then the oil’s ready. If it sinks to the bottom, the oil’s not ready yet.

Sauce

Start the sauce at the same time you start frying the chicken.  Add one stick of butter and one cup of hot sauce in a sauce pan.  My favorite hot sauce is Louisiana  or Tabasco   If you don’t think the hot sauce will be hot enough, add a half teaspoon of cayenne pepper.. Let the butter and hot sauce combo simmer for 30-45 minutes.Keep the pan on low, and  Don’t forget to stir it about every seven minutes.

The sauce will go through three phases:

Phase one: butter and sauce will be melting together.

Phase two: butter and sauce will appear to be nicely melted together.  You’ll think it’s done but it won’t be.  Let it simmer a little longer.

Phase three: the oil from the butter will separate and rise to the top.  That’s when the sauce is done.

If the sauce is too acidic for you, add a tablespoon of honey to it, or three tablespoons of brown sugar.

Once everything is done, pour the sauce over the chicken. Be sure to stir the sauce as you pour. You can sprinkle some basil on top for taste, after that, go H.A.M!

I had an interesting discussion with my friend about my sneaker and suit post.
The truth is some dress shoes are very comfortable. In fact some dress shoes are equally, if not more comfortable than sneakers. So I wanted to post about one brand that does it well.
Cole Haan is one brand I can fully endorse. Using sneaker technology created by its former owner Nike, Cole Haan combines style and comfort.
Below Taye Diggs sports a pair of Cole Haan Cooper wingtip oxfords ($280).
I love these shoes!

TBT: songs that should be on your pre-date playlist

Every women has a pre-date playlist: a playlist of songs that make her feel sexy, irresistible and powerful.  So guys, I know you have some songs that are a MUST for you to hear, whether you’re going out with a new girl or out with friends.  With all the rituals that come with going out and having a good time, consider adding these throw-back joints to your list of confidence- boosting jams

Diamond In The Back-William DeVaughn

This song has been covered many times, but the original is my favorite version.  This song is really smooth, it’s the perfect jam to get dresses to.  It makes you feel cool; like you are “the shit.” It has a really sexy, beat and the lyrics are dope.

Flashing Lights- Kanye West

okay, so this isn’t really a throw-back, but its a hot song. This song will definitely make you want to “stunt” when you put it on.

Beautiful People- Chris Brown

This song Rings Bells all over-the-place.  It’s really fun to listen to.

Crew Love-Drake

This is one of the songs that you and your crew listen to on the way to where ever you’re going; cuz doesn’t every one have luv for your crew??? I thought so:)

 

How to get your girlfriend to try new things

caution-tape-naked-woman-232x270

After being with the same girl for over a year, you should know a lot about her.  Most women are very adventurous and want to try just as many things as you want to try, but overwhelming afterthoughts keep them from being as free-spirited as they want.  The difference between you and some guy she doesn’t care about is that no matter what she does with him, she can choose not to see him again at any time, and could care less what he thinks.  With you, she cares about what you think of her, and doesn’t want anyone or anything else jeopardizing how you feel about her. Some of the most common explanations for not wanting to try new things, that women who have been with their boyfriends (or husbands) for a long time share, range between three categories:  worry of humiliation, regretting the morning after, and finding something that she (or you) might like more than the usual.  Here are some things you can do to release her inhibitions (that don’t include drugs or illegal substances), that you might not have already tried, just in time for Valentine’s Day!

Embarrass yourself

One way to help your girlfriend try new things is to show her that even you have a great sense of humor, and can embarrass yourself without taking it too seriously.This will help her see a vulnerable side of you, that is not so serious and will help her  be more accepting and welcoming to new experiences that might be  embarrassing.  Doing things like skinny dipping, or streaking is a great way to do something embarrassing together, who knows what creepers might see you guys!

Let her be herself

Not every couple talks about intimate fantasies, but everyone fantasizes about not-so-typical  things.  Let her tell you her fantasy, without getting offended or giving her the, “wow, you’d really do that” face.  Letting her discuss her deepest most secretive fantasies with you will make her feel even more comfortable with herself and her sexuality around you.

Let her tell you what to do

Being adventurous takes a certain amount of confidence.  She needs to know that no matter what crazy situations the two of you get into,  you will respect her feelings, protect her, and always take her side, no matter what.  Building this type of trust with her  comes from you (as the man) respecting and trusting her judgement, and in some situations, being able to “see” what she’s feeling, without her having to say what she’s feeling all the time (you know how women make those faces).

Complement her body

Make your girlfriend feel comfortable about her body, by showing that you like all her parts, not just the fun ones.  It’s impossible for your girlfriend to be completely free with you if she’s worried that you don’t like the way she looks.  It’s more than telling her that she’s beautiful; but you have to really show her.  Once she truly believes that you love her body, and no other woman could steal the physical love you have for her, she will definitely be more willing to try new things with you, and you’ll be able to recognize this change in her.

man-and-woman-embracing

If you’re not willing to take this journey with your girlfriend, trust me, you guys are definitely going to break-up!
