MICHAEL YOU WERE AN INSPIRATION TO ME AND I AM GRATEFUL TO HAVE BEEN ALIVE TO WITNESS ALL THAT YOU'VE DONE IN YOUR AMAZING CAREER. OF SO MANY GREAT VIDEOS THAT MICHAEL HAD THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES. IT WAS SO AHEAD OF IT'S TIME... THE EFFECTS, COLORS AND IDEA OF CREATING NEW LIFE ON EARTH WAS SUCH AN AMAZING THOUGHT AT THE TIME AND STILL IS... HERE IT IS "CAN YOU FEEL IT" ALONG WITH A STILL THAT IS AS CLASSIC AS THE REST OF HIS WORK. REST IN PEACE.

I'm exited about this project! Recording an album about awareness is something I always wanted to do! This is truly a blessing to witness!

This is what I've been waiting for... Puff brought back that feeling I had when Total was around, when Faith was on top of her game, when 90's R&B got you through the tough times in your relationship! This is a steamer! Cassie looks amazing in the video, Puff's verses, flow and lyrical content was definitely on point. I would've loved to see Ma$e on that second verse though, I can't front... Either way this is a GO for the summer... Two times for Puff for bringing back that R&B sound I so honestly missed... Must Be Love!

life is funny... One week you're having what feels like the worst week ever and you question why God is dragging you through the mud in your favorite pair of dior jeans and your true blue Jordan 3's... But then out of nowhere he brushes you off and hands you so many blessings that you feel like you don't have enough room to receive them all! So by now it shouldn't be hard to tell I'm having an amazing week! Monday morning I get a call from a major record label asking me to write for a pretty well know group's album. I won't say who just yet, but just know God is working in your boys favor. Hold on... It gets better! I got an invite to open for Bun B on his up and coming tour next month... I mean it keeps getting better, and all I can say is when God drags you through the mud in your flyest wears... Just know he has a better outfit waiting for you in his closet! I'm Gone.. ENJOY THIS FLICK ABOVE... YOU KNOW I AM!! PHOTO BY DRO

Bentley Motors is really getting us excited about their all-new Grand Bentley which they have coined, “The Epitome Of Bentley.” The Grand Bentley is going to be a replacement of the Arnage models and so far they’ve only released a teaser image and video of the car. The first units of the Grand Bentley will start hitting the pavements next year. There is speculation that Bentley will unveil the Grand Bentley at this year’s Pebble Beach Concours. Peep the teaser video below and check out newgrandbentley.com for more information.

For Fall/Winter 2009 French label Sixpack has worked with Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama. The artist worked on a capsule collection for Sixpack, something that we are definitely looking forward to. Sorayama is best known for his robot women, which are also featured in the collection. The line consists of three t-shirts and a limited edition poster. Colette will be giving an exclusive preview of the collection on June 28th.

After showing off its wares at CES this year, LG has finally announced that its first 3D LCD, the 47-inch 47LH50—will be up for purchase next month. Well, in Korea at least.
The new TV is based on the 47LH50—even sharing its model number—and is functionally identical, aside from the fact that it'll occasionally require you to don polarized 3D glasses. That model number is significant, and bodes well: the old 47LH50 made it to the US, so it's fair to say that this one will, too. No price info yet, but the old one nudged $2,000.
Wow!!! This is cool... I have to have one in my place!!!! When I have kids this is definitely going in their rooms.

This piece was one of my favorites... I'm a huge fan of color and an even bigger fan oil paintings. I was amazed at how detailed most of the art was. Although I didn't purchase anything this go round, I might be coming back for this one very soon!
(Myself & Lowkey In Photo Above)
As you can see I brought out a few of my friends! Lol... My sneaker game is impeccable... Test me!
Anyway myself, along with Lowkey & Mrs. Summer J.A.E ended up doing our shoot at the same photo studio... I got a chance to see them do their thing in front of the camera which was cool, but I must say this was one of my best shoots. The day just felt right! I woke up and God was shining on me... So after eight or so hrs of shooting my people and I attended an art exhibit which was a mental pleaser to say the least. (Pics from the gallery coming asap!) I got a chance to meet some great artist & painters... Shout to Tina from underworld art! So in closing I'll just quote the west coast GIANT Ice Cube and say "Today was a god day!" God bless... Photo's coming soon!

I Really like it when an artist puts thought into their albums. Whether it be the album artwork, or the of beats they chose. As long as you push to do more than the expected, I'm with it!

Although it’s true that the iPhone 3G S looks exactly the same as the current generation iPhone 3G from the outside, it’s not. On the inside, this new Apple device boasts a plethora of features fans have been fiending for some time, including longer battery life, a 3 megapixel autofocus camera, video recording, voice operation and a compass. The device also comes loaded with the new iPhone OS 3.0 that allows for Cut and Paste, landscape keyboard and more. Priced at $199 for a 16GB model and $299 for a 32GB model, the iPhone 3G S will be released June 19, 2009 and is available now for pre-order from Apple.
These are phenomenal! Even though I own a pair of aqua Jordan eights I'd love to have a pair of these in my collection.
Low we need these!!!

I really love when the video is used as a creative expression and instead of a reply of what 106 & park displays daily. I mean no
disrespect to anyone but I'm just tired of videos with rappers running from police or throwing money in the sky! REALLY BORING!!!
This is dope though!

What's funny is for years my father and I had never spoke and here it is, June 7th on my birthday we're sitting down discussing joint venture business and how we can benefit each other in the future by doing so. I put the past behind me and moved on. I'm a grown man and with each year I become better at all I do and stand for. Including forgiveness! So anyway we sat down and had a great convo about some future business ventures we'd like to enter into and I must say the world of sports and entertainment is in for a surprise. God I am grateful for the restoration of my relationship with my father. It's amazing to know what both parents are like... I now know what half of me comes from Jo-ann and Which half of me comes from Eugene. For 16 years all I knew is my mother and tales of the famous father I had. But now I've thumbed thru that chapter of my life and it's good to know where I come from first hand. Thanks pop & Thank God for another year to fight for what I believe in, ME!
P.s. if you have no idea who my father is click HERE
These are dope! As you know I only post things I like... there are a million different blog sites up but Here at GHOSTWRIDAH'S BLOGSPOT I'm only posting things I'm interested in or clothes/shoes I'd wear. So in case you don't see something you've seen on the net somewhere else... This is why! I hope you enjoy my post...

I can honestly admit when I wrote my first rhyme at 15 my perception of the music business was totally different. I thought by doing something I love, which was rap... "I can get rich, buy cars, clothes, and a new house for my mother." My vision was being driven by the glamour I'd seen on the television. All I could think about was what kind of car I was going to buy or how many girls I was going to have. To a 15 year old kid this business can be very misleading. Wait a minute... What am I saying... To an adult this business can be misleading! All I'm saying is for years I had it all wrong. I thought that hip hop was about being flashy, arrogant, and gangster! So guess what happened to me??? I BECAME A MAN.
Although it took me from 15 to 22, 7 years to figure out that music is an expression of ones self and not a depiction of what BET displays. As Cliche as this may sound, I began to find myself. I figured out what it takes to become a true success. It felt like I struck gold! Now my goals and aspirations at 25 are extremely different. The things I once hid from my peers in fear of flack or that I just wouldn't look "STREET ENOUGH" I no longer hide. I like to read, I enjoy fine art, I listen to Bob Dylan, and Daft Punk... All things that I always thought was cool but wouldn't express it because where I come from it makes you soft to like anything other than 2pac, and sitting on a crate on the corner all day.
When I think about it now... The nerds in school were cooler than we were! Why, because they were themselves regardless of how many jokes or punches they took to the face for being different. I'm more comfortable in my own skin then I've ever been and I love who I am. As a result my music sounds better then it ever did. My values have changed and I want more from the business than a nice house and women. I want to be AN ICON! I want to be a contribution to music rather than degrade it. I WANT A GRAMMY!!!!!!!!
My mother always told me God never gives a person what they aren't prepared for. From 15 to 22 I experienced some of worst heartbreaks in this business. Bad deals, terrible management and untruthful people. But think about this...... Had I succeeded back then, I probably wouldn't be alive. My path then was more DEstructive than CONstructive. See you at the Grammys........ God bless
