whats-up-scary-movie-spoofWhat’s up, what’s up, what’s up?
Does this evening have you feeling like LOVE?

Mine does. It is beautiful and chilly in this place where I sit.
I’m near a window, it’s perfect to compose a Griot spit.

So I am.
Last week did you eat enough turkey, beef or ham?
Are you working it off today? I surely am.

2018 has been good to me so far,
minus the political petty and food in my belly
the Science of Cinematography is the star.

I love filmmaking! We just wrapped at 5,
and kinfolk I’m here to tell you that I feel all-the-way-live.

I think I’ll mingle with good company tonight,
grab a couple of drinks and maybe a bite.

But I didn’t want to do any of the such
without stopping by and sharing some of this LOVE!

Ain’t nothing like enjoying life to-the-fullest and hugging your passions,
I’m Qui
Good evening to thee. 5-4-3-2-1, carry-on and let’s make some more ACTION!

Let’s start at Pappadeaux’s!

 

Out of the darkness

In Communication, Griot, Movies, Music, Networking, Self Improvement, TV Shows on September 7, 2015 at 5:58 am

Queen-Latifah…and into the light,
it appears QUEEN LATIFAH has been out of sight

but that’s how things look when you’re film producing –
you spend a lot of time behind the scenes leverage juicing.

So last week I wrote a little piece on that grunting Master P
just to log onto Facebook and find him posting about the Queen.

She has signed onto another reel deal and soon she’ll be in front of the cam
playing the role of young Master P’s mother in an upcoming film: The Ice Cream Man.

Remember that jam? I just linked it – here, last week.
Though today is about Queen Latifah and her journey of many peaks.

She’s always been a bit classy and not to be associated with the messy.
The Queen showed up and rocked the scene via reviews on the show BESSIE:

.
I hear she went all out. I hear the production went hard.
I heard the choice critics loved it & it’s been nominated for awards:

Bessie-the-movie

Well good Lord, that’s why we haven’t heard from the Queen – she’s about her larkness.
She’s so busy singing and acting it only appeared she was consumed by the darkness,

the fade-to-black scene that a lot of black actors vanish into.
I’m excited to report Queen Latifah did not resort and keeps a project or two.

If you’re like me and you miss the Queen Latifah show
take comfort in knowing she’s not in the dark – yo!

She’s all up in the light, on her mark and ready for the next scene,
I’m Qui
lighting up the dark with productive sparks and this one’s about the Queen.

All hail her bright and universal appeal
on music, tv series, show hosting and film.
Queen Latifah’s the real deal.

TBS-talent-house-of-payneSome just talk whilst others are ‘doing the damn thang,’
He’s all work and no chat —  he’s Mr. ALLEN PAYNE.

Tyler has claimed Allens talent and the two are actively engaged in a successful series flirt.
The HOUSE OF PAYNE lives in the TBS lane – it is classic Perry work.

Looking at Allen has never hurt.  My eyes are happy to see him when he works.
He’s been acting since the 80’s and dazzling the ladies; he’s quite the visual flirt.

His resume has been the -ish since 1989.
He has aged very little and my God he’s fine.

Did I already mention that? Pardon my stutter,
but anytime he’s on the scene, I’m glad to see this brother.

I love his network loyalty, but of diversity I am inclined to pull.
Besides I’d love to see Allen Payne on the set of Shonda Rhime’s SCANDAL.

I bet he’d be good. I remember his performance in New Jack City.
The people demand to see you more – Mr.Payne please take  pity.

Allen is anything but lost in the darkness, perhaps multiple roles are not his plight.
I’m Qui
just asking the good-looking he, if his future plans include more diverse script writes?

I’m obviously inquiring because I think his craft is out of sight
and, well… like I said, he’s so darn easy on the eyes.

Anywho, I figured if I spent the day on topic Out of the darkness,
it would be good to add this brother to the 411 list.

He made me say UGHHH!

In Communication, Griot, Music, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows on September 2, 2015 at 10:24 am

romeo-masterp-vh1He made me say “Uhhhh! Nah-nah-nah-nah.”

Have you ever said that before? Say it. Did your lip curl when you said it?

It was crazy to hear those words come out of my own mouth and furthermore, I was shocked that I was relatively jamming to it. I remember the very first time I heard of Master P it was via 2 purchases: a double CD compilation called DOWN SOUTH HUSTLERS and an album CD called ICE CREAM MAN. We bought them at a local neighborhood store. Now that I think about it, we may have even bought it at a car wash in Arlington, TX. The cd’s had a lot of hardcore southern rappers – some of them I knew of and some I didn’t so I thought I’d give it a try. Well actually, my guy bought the cd’s and I just agreed to give it a try. Once in the car and blasting the tracks I found myself feeling slightly annoyed with one of the branding chorus lines of the up and coming, young Master P. It was this line in particular: Make ’em say Uhhh! Nah-nah-nah-nah.”

I remember my guy driving down the street bobbing his head. I had my lipped turned up. “Why the curled lip,” he asked, I explained that Master P’s little “chorus branding” is either going to propel him big or shoot him to country hell. Well, history has revealed that Master P mastered that hook and it propelled him to heights that I couldn’t have ever foreseen– and am so glad to witness and behold. I’m giddy that we opted to #SupportTheArtists and purchase those CD’s. They were so underground that BEST BUY hadn’t had a chance to stock them. Now they are collector items.

I’m into collecting artifacts poised for historical value – sure, but there’s nothing that I like to collect more than knowledge. So imagine the twinkle at the base of my cerebellum to find out that Master P has a master’s degree and that his son, Romeo is in hot pursuit of his own. My lip is forever uncurled. That’s another reason to say “Ughhh! Nah-nah-nah-nah.” #KnowledgeRules.

.
Ughhh. Who knew that sound would be synonymous with successful heights that a lot of Percy Millers earlier peers would never know. But Master P wasn’t selfish with his art, he quickly expanded out of the music studio into the movie studio. I’ve not ever thought of him to be much of an actor, though. I’m convinced that his intellect, talent, and comprehension of business is what has gotten him into the film productions he’s been associated with it, but I wouldn’t say “acting” is his forte. Master P is a producer and seems like the family acting gene will have to go to his son, Romeo.

Did you see Lil Romeo a few episodes ago in SURVIVORS REMORSE?

Nah-nah-nah-nah: Please tell me that you have been watching Tichina Arnold and Mike Epps head up this series that is based on circumstances that propel you from poor to rich – in an instance? Lucky for you – if you are a STARZ subscriber – the first season is not too far gone that you can’t catch up, laugh and learn a little more about folks who win the lottery, (via a sports contract, inventive propriety or scratch offs). It’s an awesome show. The writers are real with the script content which is exactly where Lil Romeo’s performance came in. He was the childhood friend of the recently rich athlete and he was looking for a handout. At first, the writers made it appear that Lil Romeo’s character was ISO an opportunity to perhaps ‘try out and make a professional team.’ However, after given the opportunity to try out and the childhood friend overslept from a previous night of partying — it was clear that he was more interested in a handout. Romeo Miller is anything but a moocher, but he certainly played that part to the letter. It’s clear that his early NICKELODEON acting days have ripened and are ready to pay off. Catch S1 – Episode 5: Out of The Past and then refrain from being “that guy,” — the slacker.

Master P uses his education to encourage Romeo and propel ICDC:

Percy and Romeo are spokespersons for ICDC college. Click pic to see video.

Master P has mastered quite a few banging tracks, television shows, film projects, business deals, and now he’s mastering being DAD. I am so glad Romeo recognizes his fathers accomplishments and is in hot pursuit to meet and even surpass them. God speed.

Now– when I look back on it, I yield more of a smile & less lip blah.
I’m a jovial singer of “Ughhh! Nah-nah-nah-nah.”

It obviously is not a word or phrase, but my goodness does it have meaning.
When it comes to wrinkling the lobes, Master P adds a hustlers seasoning.

And I like it.
He writes, produces and mic’s it.

He’s a knowledge holder and a productive creative barter.
I’m Qui
an observant she – jamming the hustlers chorus of Romeo’s father.

If you plan your life and point-for-point you slay it –
respect will manifest without request & folks will just say it:

Ughhh!”
XO!!

Are You Not Entertained

In Communication, Griot, Music, News, TV Shows on March 19, 2014 at 6:19 am

Lion tamer — I am so very entertained, and long after the cameras have stopped rolling. Obviously.

So the Nina Simone biopic never did get the green light to hit the air,
but worry not, for to Zoe Saldana, Hollywood remains favorably fair.

The industry buzz is, that she’s up – to star in a different biopic.
This time Zoe will portray the banging hay-day of Ms. Eartha Kitt.

It seems the announcement of Eartha’s biopic didn’t cost the project as much
loss-of-love due to the non-black-principle-role-casting stuff.

Yet, for all of the still shots from the Nina biopic – one would think the film would be ready,
but when you don’t poll family and friends at the projects begin, things could easily become less steady.

Speaking of family, Master P is having trouble with his estranged wife,
as she gives statement to the press that she’s living a paupers life.

She and Master P are no longer an item – this fact is not hid.
It is also true, that Mrs. P was the guardian of 4 of their kids.

And something else about ‘needing support’ and someone said ‘no way,’
then someone stormed out yelling, ‘you’ll rue the day!’ – I paraphrase, 

but don’t take my word for it, the horses mouth always says it better.
Curious as to who said what? Read Master P’s open letter:
Master P's OpenLetter

Now Master P may not get out of this so easily. After all she is his wife.
And by the law of many states, community property is a part of his life.

Chris Brown has no children to support and that’s a good thing,
right now he needs to self preserve and concentrate on his ‘sing.’

It seems he and Justin Bieber have quite the testosterone motor,
the two of them on a reluctant whim, are filling Cali’s court and taxing quota.

Entertainment is all around us, whether behind closed doors or in the public square.
It is constantly being broadcasted over radio and television air.

No matter how much air space we utilize mayhem is always on the rise.
And I’m more than a little concerned about the plane that we’ve lost in the skies.

Where is Malaysia flight 370? Where in the world could they have gone?
Did a sky portal open up and take them or did it land in brush, overgrown?

Could the pilot and/or co-pilot have pulled some sort of theft and hostage situation?
This is turning out to be a real mystery page-turner – I’m so following the investigation.

I don’t know yo!  I really don’t know,
but Diddy’s babys moma may have to go.

She’s in a bit of a crunch, a financial bind,
to the tune of a ‘$622K back mortgage‘ chime.

Much like Master P’s wife, but Diddy never married this lady.
She was just the woman he knocked up and then put up, because she had his baby.

The baby is 21 years old now. The baby is fully – a grown man,
And Diddy doesn’t feel responsible to put more dough on that piece of land.

She thought he ‘wouldn’t stop – because he couldn’t stop,’
but that was just a line he used to build chic stock.
Gosh her past really rocked!

I’m not being cold, I’m just making fun.
I’d be thrilled if Diddy broke her off some.

I’d be thrilled if Master P spoiled his wife too,
and I’d be giddy if politics were based on truths.

Oh you! For a Feel Good Feeling – I tend to go far,
even farther than folks do, for that Klondike bar.

But I don’t make the news, I’m just chopping it up with you,
I’m Qui
it’s HUMP DAY baby – thanks so much for coming thru. Ooo!

Join me in jamming this tune:

VH1 Hip Hop Honors Awards went HARD

In Griot, Music, TV Shows on June 7, 2010 at 10:35 pm

The 2010 VH1 Hip Hop Honors Awards Show

This years broadcast was OUTSTANDING and was a 2 hour show
For the first time in a long time I prayed that time would pass slow.

The span of land distance and variety that was covered
Reminded me of why I’m a Southern Music Lover!

Tonight I was one jamming mother & enjoyed every state and its voice;
To give it up uninhibitedly (without censorship) has always been my choice.

Much like Uncle Luke of 2 LIVE CREW
Did you hear what he told the TEA PARTIERS to do?
Ooooo!

[hint: He extended to FREE SPEECH HATERS: An offer to kiss his arse]
Yes sir – Yes ma’am…the Hip Hop Honors broadcast went hard.

Didn’t you love BIG MAN Jermaine Dupree and how the ATL REPPED?
Last years show was strong but this year has got to be among THE BEST!

Organized Noise’s song performers really got down —
I enjoyed the white dude w/the black socks whose skills rocked & “the dance moves” of Sleepy Brown.

I enjoyed Bun B reppin’ the “Lone T” and Mr. Paul Wall too.
I was also entertained by Lil’ Jon “hype man’ing” like he do.

What most excited me was the informative interviews
That served as a great foundation; an educational hue.

J. Prince is a man that I’ve long known could hit the spot
He’s the brain child behind the joints we’ve jammed to through RAP-A-LOT.

Bow Wow Represented — his performing skills were definitely in the house–
Though the party really picked up when we dropped in on VA’s “South”.

Timbaland represented and Missy held it down
Reiterating their position in Hip Hop hailing “the VA crown”.

Pitt Bull flavorfully repped Florida and Trina deliciously thickened the scene
The outfit she wore was leotard short but she kept the performance clean.
The entire production was mean.

Please tell me you saw it? Do tell me you tuned in,
I’m Qui
A pretty happy fan of The VH1 Hip Hop Honors Awards 2010

F.Y.I. — The credits said Fab5Freddy Co-Exec‘d it
…he’s always associating himself with HITS!
Can this guy do anything else besides WIN? 🙂

Facing the MUSIC

In Griot, Music, News, TV Shows on June 6, 2010 at 9:45 pm

Tomorrow @ 9/8c The VH1 HIP HOP HONORS AWARDS is going down
Set your DVRs (for later review) and activate the surround sound.

They’ll be focusing on the South and the joints they’ve produced;
Highlighting the excitings of Luke, Master P and ol’ Mystikal too.

Not to mention J. Prince, Jermaine Dupree and (flicky-flicky) Timbaland
Jamming in between skitted comical throws by this years host: Craig Robinson.

Lil’ Jon, Gucci Mane and Juvenile will be there
as well as T-Pain, DJ Khaled and doo rag Chamillionaire.
(I’m not sure about the attendance of his hair) lol! 🙂

David Banner, Trina, and Dem Franchize Boys
will be in the house parallelling Organized Noise.

Artists who ‘relate to’ and ‘incite us’ through hip hop tracks
That were created and formulated from the Southern parts of the map.

Tomorrow night we’ll sit back and laugh,
bob our heads and give brotherly dap.

We’ll thank God for the opportunity to relate to a variety of regions
that have all come together in the name of another ‘Honorable Hip Hop Season’.

VH1 Hip Hop Honors Awards — will continue to focus on the music,
I’m Qui
Focusing on SUPPORT — Join me – Be a sport & tune in to it.

The party airs on VH1 Monday 9/8c
