What are you anticipating the most about motherhood?

Yandy: I’m really excited to hold this baby. I can’t wait to see what all these kicks in my belly look like on the outside. I can’t wait to kiss him, smell him, play with his toes, sing him to sleep. And honestly I’ve spent so many years taking care of artist now I can take care of something that is all mine (well me and daddy’s).

A baby boy is such a joy. What do you imagine him to be like?

Yandy: I hope he’s just like his dad with some of me mixed in there. Smart, confident, caring, compassionate, a leader and want to see what the combination of us looks like.

Do you have a name yet?

Yandy: Not yet. It has to be just perfect. And dad and I haven’t found a name that gives us the warm and fuzzy feeling we’re looking for.

Will he make his appearance on LAHH next season?

Yandy: If I make an appearance my son will as well. No one will be able to separate me from that lil boy for a while.

You are about to witness the greatest love of all. In one word please tell me how you want your child to describe you?

Yandy: My Everything

What is the one thing that you will instill in your son the most?

Yandy: To have a respect and love for God.

As a new mother, what worries you the most?

Yandy: Lol! Everything. Balancing work with being a mommy, will I be able to breast feed, will I be a good mom, will he get sick, will I always be able to provide for him, what child care will be best, what school will he attend, who will he date…you name it. I’m nervous about it. Lol

Meagan Good Covers Rolling Out: Talks Her Future Plans, Preacher Fiancé & Being Completely Celibate

Personally, I like and respect Meagan Good because she is a positive role model for young girls and has a lot of respect for herself. We don’t read negative stories about her in magazines or on blogs. She is not out in the public acting all crazy. She is also a devoted Christian. The 30-year-old talented actress is covering the latest issue of Rolling Out Magazine. On the front page, Meagan is wearing a nice colorful top with a pair of spiked heels. Inside, she reveals her future plans, talks about her preacher fiance, people’s perspective of  her and much more. Megan also reveals that she is now completely celibate and trying to quit smoking. Below are some excerpts:

Over the next few years, what are some of the personal and professional aspects of your life that you want to improve upon?
Well I definitely want to start making more films, and I also want to start writing and producing more. I want to create projects with my fiancé, and just help people in any way that I can. I just want to get my hands on different areas of the business, and soak in everything that God has given me a passion for. In my personal life, I just want to work on being a better person every day. Really working on quitting this smoking, and zoning in on letting go of the people who shouldn’t be in my life. I want to start focusing on spending more time with my mom, because life is short and precious. I want to be there for my younger sister, who turns 17 next month … I just really want to begin valuing more the things that are valuable to me. My focus is on giving them more attention than I have over the last couple of years. When you’re in your 20s, you’re ripping and running, and you can forget about the things that are so much more important than what you’re doing. Now that I’m 30, my mind-set has been altered in a great way, so I’m going to be focusing more on that.

Exclusive Interview: Lil Durk & Lil Reese Speaks On Signing To Def Jam

The other day, I reported that up & coming Chicago rappers Lil’ Durk and Lil’ Reese have both signed solo deals with Def Jam. A few hours after signing their solo deals with the prominent Hip-Hop label, the Chi-Town natives phoned in to FSD  from Los Angeles to discuss their new deal and future plans. Read below:

Lil Durk

First and foremost, Durk, congrats to you… Shout out to Fake Shore Drive and Andrew, man. Much love. Shout out to Def Jam for believing. Shout out to all of the artists in Chicago. Stay tuned for the new music, because we’re coming. Know that.

Any idea when we can expect an album or a single on Def Jam? We workin’ on that right now. It’s a work in progress, but we’re trying to figure that all out now. But we’re working.

Last time we spoke, you were supposed to turn yourself in to do a short stretch in jail. Is that still happening? Yeah, yeah, yeah. Def Jam got me an extension of an extra week, which got me out here to LA to sign the deal. I’ve gotta come back to Chicago to do my time, though. I go back in Monday for two months.

Despite that, this is very exciting Yeah, man. Also, Reese and I are the first acts from Chicago to sign straight to Def Jam. No other imprints. We’re straight to Def Jam — no middleman.

Lil Reese

Congrats to you, Reese…Drew, what’s the deal?

Happy for you, homie. What’s the next move? I’m happy to be in position, man. Not too many people get to be in this position I’m in right now.

Did you think it was gonna happen this fast? I mean, I knew it was gonna go happen. But nah, not this fast.

How long was Def Jam scouting you? They’ve been scoutin’ for a little minute.

What’s the next immediate move after signing?  Man, trying to be the best I can. Working on my mixtape. It’ll be here real soon — within the next couple of weeks, for sure.

Even Lil Wayne Gave Up On Juelz Santana: Weezy Scraps ‘I Can’t Feel My Face’ Album With Ju Ju

Last year, I interviewed Def Jam rapper Juelz Santana and during our interview, he stated that he was working on his long-awaited I Can’t Feel My Face collaborative disc with Lil Wayne, “Wayne and his camp just released a statement, I was going keep quiet because I was tired of telling people about the I Can’t Feel My Face project, but we back working on that. We definitely are trying to get that out to the people. Hopefully, I probably let that fly out before my album too. Just to create that platform and then drop another mixtape, probably the continuation of the Reagan Era.” Apparently, things didn’t go as planned and the album was recently scrapped by Lil Wayne.

In a recent interview with MTV, Weezy said that he reached out to Ju Ju when get got out of jail but Ju Ju didn’t send him back the material in time because he is having his own legal woes. Weezy has moved on from the long-awaited project, added more verses to the songs that he had left open for Ju Ju and will be releasing those songs on his upcoming I Am Not a Human Being II.

I actually got at Elz when I got out [of jail] and told him, ‘Man, I think it’s time we really capitalize on that,” Weezy explained. “[Now], he can’t work how he wants to work because they shut down his studio. I sent him some music and he didn’t send them back in the time-fashion that I work. I started putting extra verses on those songs and I’ve moved on. Now what probably would’ve been I Can’t Feel My Face, has now turned into I Am Not a Human Being II.”
