Keyshia Cole Unveils ‘Woman To Woman’ Artwork; Wears Ka’oir Cosmetics Doll Blue Lipstick On The Cover

Keyshia Cole is scheduled to release her fifth studio album, entitled Woman To Woman on November 19 (maybe Keyshia should choose another date because Rihanna is dropping on that day). Earlier tonight Thursday (October 11), KC unveiled the album’s artwork and on the cover, she is wearing Ka’ior Cosmetics Doll Blue Lipstick. KC’s Lil Wayne assisted single “Enough of No Love” is struggling on the charts. The album’s second single “Trust and Believe” will hit iTunes on October 22. Ashanti, Meek Mill, Boi-1da and Redd Stylez all collaborated with KC on this album.

Honestly, I am NOT feeling KC as an artist anymore! She got too Hollywood; I like that urban girl from Oakland much better. By the way, her reality show Keyshia & Daniel: Family First sucks!

What is your opinion on her album cover?

Jay-Z, Will Smith, Rick Ross, Wale, Victor Cruz, & The Dream Accompanied Meek Mill At Album Listening Party

As I always say, I am so proud of Meek Mill’s success“. It has been a long time coming for the Philly bred rapper. His life story is similar to mines. A few of his love ones were killed in a senseless act of violence, he caught numerous drugs and gun charges which resulted in jail time, and he still deals with many issues such as being a father and other life ills associated with living in the hood. Overall, this 25-year-old Maybach Music Group recording artist overcame most of his struggles and is living out his dreams. His music embodies the streets! The young talented rapper is a diamond in the rough and the true meaning of a Dreamchaser.

Last night Wednesday (October 10), Meek Mill held his Dreams & Nightmares album listening party at Electric Lady Studio in New York City’s Greenwich Village neighborhood. Hot 97‘s Angie Martinez hosted the D’USSE Cognac Party which brought out some of the biggest celebs including Jay-Z, Will Smith, Rick Ross, Wale, Victor Cruz, The Dream, Desean Jackson and Estelle. The guests sipped on D’USSE cocktails as Angie Martinez assisted Meek with introducing the tracks and the influences behind each record on the album.

Dreams & Nightmares arrives October 30th!

Passion For Fashion: Meek Mill Wearing An Alexander McQueen Tee-Shirt & Louis Vuitton Damier Jacket

Last night Wednesday (October 10), Philly’s own Meek Mill held his Dreams & Nightmares album listening session at the Electric Lady Studios in NYC. For the event, Meek styled in an Alexander McQueen Skull-Print Cotton Tee-Shirt which is available at Mr Porter for $195. This black cotton-jersey version incorporates interwoven birds into the infamous pattern for a delicately dramatic effect. Meek layered his tee-shirt under a Louis Vuitton Damier Hoodie Jacket which is believed to be from last year’s collection and is sold out. I called the Louis Vuitton store on 5th Avenue in NYC and they didn’t have this particular jacket in stock. Dreams & Nightmares arrives October 30th.

Are They The New Huxtables? The Harrises Family Portrait For In Touch Weekly

Well, I don’t know about this one but it is being reported that T.I. & his wife Tiny and their beautiful children believe that they are the Hip Hop version of the Huxtables. If you guys are not familiar with the Huxtables or forgot who they are, I will refresh your memory. The Cosby Show was a scripted sitcom that aired for eight seasons on NBC from 1984-1992. The show focused on the Huxtable family, an affluent African-American family living in Brooklyn, New York.

The Harrises (T.I. & Tiny family), channeled the legendary and iconic Cosby Show family portrait for the spread in the new issue of In Touch Weekly. This is a nice family portrait and it does resemble the Cosby Show portrait but I wouldn’t compare them to the Huxtables, even though they’re filthy rich. The Huxtables are more conservative and comes from a different environment than the Harrises.

What is your opinion?

Ask YDBR: A married man is sending inappropriate pics!

Dear Ask YDBR,

I have a problem! A married man who is the father of a student in my child’s class has recently begun contacting me and making advances!!!!! The MAIN issue is that he is sending me naked pictures of himself and asking when can we go out. Now I know of his wife, but do not her personally, so should I contact her to let her know her man is a cheat or just ignore him?


Not his Mrs.

Dear Not his Mrs,

The great news is that in today’s modern tech world, you can simply just block him from sending messages to your phone! But before you do that, I would let him know that if he attempts it again, you will forward the messages to his wife! Some men (not very many though) are smart enough to heed to a threat like that! Now if you have to be in presence more often than you would like, it may a little uncomfortable at first but just stand your ground and remember your threat! If you never have to see him that makes it even better… You block him and you move on!!!! Hope this helps.

What do you guys think? How would you handle the unwanted advances?
