Passion For Fashion: Chris Brown Sporting A $140 Aston Mozie The ‘Holy’ Crew Tee-Shirt For His XXL Cover Shoot

Singer Chris Brown is now back to doing press and interviews after taking a little over one year off. Hopefully, during that year off, Breezy developed some type of media training. He was spotted on the set of XXL’s January 2013 cover shoot. In the Ugo Mozie styled shoot, Breezy sported a $140 Aston Mozie ‘The Holy’ Crew Tee-Shirt. He accessorized his outfit with a $625 Versace Oversized Gold-Plated Crystal Ring. I’m dying to see what Breezy talked about in the cover story. This issue should hit newsstands sometime in December.

Meek Mill Is The True Meaning Of A Dreamchaser By Don Bleek

Maybach Music Group (MMG)/Warner Bros recording artist Robert Williams better known by his stage name Meek Mill is one of the hottest MC’s in the game. Last February, he was voted as the #7 hottest MC on MTV’s annual ‘Hottest MC’s In The Game’ list. He defines dreamchaser which is someone who chases their dreams and turn them into reality. That is exactly what Meek did!

Before signing a major record deal, Meek started his career by rapping on local DVD’s and mixtapes in the Philadelphia and South Jersey area. As a teenager, Meek and a few of his childhood friends formed a rap group called ‘BloodHoundz’ and they released a series of mixtapes including 2008’s ‘Flamers’, 2009’s ‘Flamer 2: Hottest In The City’ and ‘Flamers 2.5: The Preview ’and 2010’s ‘Flamers 3: The Wait Is Over’. Because of the success of those mixtapes, Meek Mill was introduced to Grand Hustle’s rapper/CEO T.I. by his former manager Charlie Mack. T.I., eventually signed Meek to his label. Unfortunately, Meek and T.I. both caught two separate legal cases which ended in both of them doing time in prison; therefore the business agreement did not translate. However, during his short time at Grand Hustle, Meek released his ‘Mr. Philadelphia’ mixtape in August 2010.

His music is an inspiration to a lot of young Black and Latino males including myself because most of his fans were raised in the projects and inner cities just like he was and we faced some of the same struggles that he rap about in his music. Whenever I listen to Meek’s music, I hear the passion, hunger, pain, struggles and success in his voice and lyrics.

He is just a 25-year-old young man from the streets of Philly who chased his dreams and turned them into reality.  In February 2011, it was announced that Meek signed a new record deal with Rick Ross’ MMG imprint. He released his debut single “Tupac Back” later that year. The track appeared on the group’s ‘Self Made Vol. 1’ compilation. In 2012, MMG released ‘Self Made Vol. 2’. Under the MMG imprint, Meek also released his 2011’s ‘Dreamchasers’ and 2012’s ‘Dreamchasers 2’ mixtapes which received over three million views/downloads in three days. This past spring/summer 2012, Meek was featured on Drake’s ‘Club Paradise’ tour alongside Waka Flocka, 2 Chainz and French Montana. In August, he wrapped up his own 25-date ‘Dreamchasers’ tour which sold out in most cities. Yesterday (October 30), Meek released his debut album, ‘Dreams & Nightmares’. The lead singles “Amen” Ft. Drake and “Burn” Ft. Big Sean are in heavy rotation. I’m so proud of Meek’s success and he will forever be a “dreamchaser”. Please go buy Meek’s album! It is worth the $12.

Update: According to HDD, Meek Mill is projected to debut at #1 on the Billboard top 200 with between 175k-200k units sold in the first week. Congrats, homie!

Ladies Styling On The Scene: Adrienne Bailon, Toya Wright & Teyana Taylor Spotted Making Their Rounds

As far as music, I haven’t heard any new material from Adrienne Bailon in years. She did sign a deal with Island Def Jam a couple of years ago but she was dropped from the label. She was also managed by Ne-Yo’s Compounds Entertainment but I really don’t know what the status of that situation. Did any of your guys tuned into her reality show? She was recently spotted at the Samsung Galaxy Note II Launch in NYC. For the event, she styled in an olive trench coat which features leather sleeves. She paired her coat with black leather shorts and booties.

Toya Wright is still on the Atlantic coast in southeastern Florida celebrating her 29th birthday. She was spotted making her way to a nightclub with her girls. The business woman and former reality star styled in a BCBGMAXAZRIA Fola Contrast Print Dress paired with BCBGMAXAZRIA Ripley Haircalf Booties. Nice outfit Toya!

G.O.O.D. Music recording artist Teyana Taylor was photo’d rocking a pair of Air Jordan XI “Cool Grey” paired with white pants and a grey tee-shirt.
