The Band is Back Together

In Communication, Griot, Networking, TV Shows on September 13, 2017 at 4:41 am

All eyes are now on Dre…

Episode 10, Season 4 of POWER did deliver
and dulled the stereotype of “being a killer.”

You had Budweiser, Coors & Miller together again…
Their government names could never contain the amount of sin

that they have on agenda; the mayhiem they intend to create.
Tommy and Ghost took out Uriel but meant to kill Dre.

Raina’s death was avenged but that doesn’t make all “right.”
Tariq showed up at Ray-Ray’s undercover cop spot and took his life.

He fired two shots and Rays life stalled,
Then Angela came after the fact and found a bullet lodged in the wall.

Tariq used Tasha’s personal handgun
Forcing Tasha to hire Terry Silver and end their romp fun.

Everything is different now…

Now the whole family is under the gun – they live by it.
Me? It’s a heck of a heap, the layers are so deep I had to write it.

For next season, I’m already excited, though I chose to write about Episode 10 today
because not long ago I read an article that indicated “limited episodes” are at play.

Meaning the producers asked for 11 or 12 episodes
to tell a thorough tale but we’re duly told “No.”

Is that so? I surely hope not.
Is STARZ the good guy or the dirty cop?

Why not grant the producers per their request?
Is the series worth it? [Answers] DO IT and HECK YES‼️ 🙂

Forcing the series to combine multiple scripts because there’s no episodic room
makes me wonder what it means to be a successful series boon?

Anywho, I loved every minute in Season 4 of the series POWER.
I pray the premium network STARZ considers yielding a couple of additional hours.

Mmmm. Delicious drama it is.
The highs and lows of life via scripted biz.

No one sits lightly during any scene where we loose a kid.
Tasha’s emotions
are the tumultuous ocean of a broken and bruised Ms.

Kiss-Kiss but let us not dismiss how the season came to a close:
In Tommy’s mustang with Kanan in back and @shotgun, Ghost.

The Band is back together and dare I say,
they’re all focused on their next hit, “El fatality Dre.”

Hey-ey. For the series to have been expressed via 10 episodes,
KUDOS to every facet and all involved – a relative tale was always told.

The POWER series produces juices that look like gold,
I’m Qui
Flexing POWER with thee about the game being told and sold.

POWER Moves & A Couple of Fools

In Communication, Griot, News, TV Shows on August 23, 2017 at 4:35 am

donshea-hopkins-power-rainaYes, I saw it all and yes it was purposefully sour.
Before I spill the beans please tell me that you saw POWER?

Bean spilling is about to commence
Tariq isn’t slick and Raina reaped consequence.

Kinfolk, I was sick. I truly thought I would throw up.
I was enjoying watching Donshea Hopkins grow up.

And now this:
The death of a child is hard to dismiss.

FOOL 1: Ray-Ray really messed up when he pulled that trigger.
Raina was just another nobody, the crooked cop figured.

Did you see the eyes of her brother as he stood over her last gurgles of breath?
Tariq looked up at Ray to see him running away then to Raina as she embraced death.

florida-evans-damn.gifCrooked POWER got her.
In specific it was horrific and Ray-Ray shot her.

Florida Evans said it best: “Damn, damn, damn!
Where’s that Dr. Seuss book, Green Eggs and Ham?

If only Tasha could read her little girl another bedtime story tonight.
The femme sibling role lost its soul; the writers will no longer write.

Raina St. Patrick has met her scripted demise.
But did you see her brothers eyes?

I did. They were charged with new and calculating views.
It just didn’t appear that his soul felt dear about bidding Raina ado.

In other devilish deeds
spawned from Sundays POWER‘ful seeds:

power-dre-smokingFOOL 2: Dre is definitely smoking but it ain’t weed.
I’m weighing this by the size of his recent misdeeds.

He orchestrated Julios death
And has the Toros Locos walking to the left.

They are under suspicion and now being watched…
Warehouse distributions for Tommy are up in smoke – shot.

Tommy is the one eyeballing the Loco’s and feeling a big testy,
He has duly reached out for help from his dad,Tony Teresi.

The show yielded to credits after Tommy fist bumped snow.
He was still on his vent at the episodes end – but of Raina’s – he does not know.

Eh yo! It was emotionally pulling to say the least,
I’m Qui
On these POWER Moves & a couple of Fools. The entire production is beast!

As for the host, the black and gold STARZ:
Take care of this series – its relativity goes hard!!!

POWER Gripping

In Griot, Networking, TV Shows, Video on July 19, 2017 at 5:58 am
Power Season 4 2017

Tony Teresi threatens to reveal Ghost if he doesn’t have Tommy deliver 20 Grand a week to his dying wife.

OMG and Ooo Wee! Did you see POWER Sunday night?
Angela, Ghost and Tommy all have their fights:

  • Ghost is still in jail.
  • The prosecution team is still giving him hell.
  • Angela is focused on her own vengeance spell.
  • She is  the ‘hold up’ in preventing Ghosts’ bail.

My goodness, kinfolk, Sunday night was a familial hard selll:
Kanan is building Tariq a rap sheet; to secure his future FAIL.
Dre’ knows Kanan’s kicking it with Riq but can’t tell.

Accessory to Burglary
even for a minor is a felony…

Participate? This time Tariq did not still the episode was further hard hittin’
revealing Teresi is on lockdown with feelings that he should be winnin.’

With thoughts of swindlin’ and grinnin he approached Jamie in the yard,
identified him as Ghost and insisted on bribing him for 20 large.

Ghosts told Proctor when he came to visit him
To give Teresi what he wants —  because he’s divvying Ghost’s grim.

power-prosecutor-john1st chair D.A. John enlists Teresi to get info on Ghost.
He’s looking for a move that could render Jamie toast.

While Tommy delivered the first bribe of 20 grand
He chatted it up with the “bribe receiving” hand.

He asked a series of questions that Jamie sent via Proctor
and when he mentioned the “Stoletti case” he could tell, he got ’em.

Now I personally don’t “know” the Saletti” case
but it was clear Tommy hit a nerve by the look on the guys face.

So the next time the two inmates met in the yard it was a viewers blessing.
Ghost duly set things straight between him and Tony Teresi.

Ghost slipped a rip about the Saletti case and stuff
and nodded condolences on Teresi’s wifes cancer being rough.

Though in light of “Saletti” – he won’t be wearing Teresi’s bribing cuffs.
Still I feel for Teresi, Jamie’s speech may not be enough.

Teresi’s wife is dying of Cancer and she doesn’t have long to live,
so him bribing Ghost is more of a necessary and a not a negotiable give.

So we will see where that goes…
Will Ghosts’ checkmate on Teresi end his woes?

The writers are not showing their hand on that piece
but there’s chaos on every page – a scripts slow release.

power-julio-dreDre told Tommy that he and Julio were Federally hauled in
and that Julio talked to the Feds longer than the span of his begin-to-end.

Julio on his beat ran into Cristobal
who complained about his soldier who is currently on the fall.

Cristobal complained to Julio of his injured hot headed grunt,
and how he doesn’t appreciate Tommy running over his legs – a wreckless stunt.

Cristobal further questioned how Julio is the boss
and let is slip it’s not a title bestowed, but comes at a cost.

Then he dropped the mic and walked off
leaving Julio looking like he wanted to bawl.

Julio took that conversation to Tommy to file a complaint.
But only soldiers talk to Tommy and a soldier Julio – AIN’T!

Tommy had no sympathy for Cristobal’s bedridden goon
and told Julio he better pull it together soon.

Something tells me,
Julio ain’t gone hone this beat.

power-cristobal

Cristobal never smiles in character.

Dre ran into Cristobal at the club
and the two of them discussed Julio “screwing up.”

I’m not really sure why Dre was talking to him,
but it’s likely because Dre wants to be the DISTRO gem.

Enough about him, what about Tasha and the fam?
Tasha dropped by the prison to speak to Ghost and say, “Damn!

Angela’s has been calling me quite a bit as of late…
she said she offered you a deal that you didn’t take.

She said it was an offer that would save the kids and me?
She thinks that she and I should be on the same team.”

Basically Tasha stopped by the prison in short
to prove to Ghost that he still has her heart,

but she also meant
no future deals are to be made or spent

before running it by her – because it’s a huge part of her life.
After all Ghost created this situation that cleaves to his wife.

power-lakieshaAnd then there’s LaKeisha and all that she’s got:
Tommy, her kid and OH LORD! Not the shop?!

Another warrant and FBI cops locked the shop down as she left one night.
In a panic she called Tasha looking for the light,

Tasha knew nothing; Her problems are overwhelming and by a few.
Dre placed a call to Tommy, because the FBI also shut down TRUTH.

All of Jamie St. Patricks assets are frozen and what was further not cool,
is that when Tasha retrieved the kids at 3, she was informed they’re suspended from school.

Because of insufficient funds.
They usually auto-draft, but there was none.

Could things get any lower? The script was going downhill and strong,
Then Angela looks over Truth surveillance footage and concludes she was wrong.

She watched minute-by-minute footage before and after Greg died
and saw not one minute that Ghost had a gun to hide.
It became obvious the mole is still active and alive…

Like I said the writers hand is invisible and I’m not even tripping,
I’m Qui
and it’s that kind of skill set that keeps Starz POWER Gripping.

This is a strong liq that I don’t mind sipping.

POWER Full

In Communication, Griot, Networking, TV Shows on July 16, 2017 at 3:45 am

power-raina-confronts-angela.pngWe’re 3-feet in, as in 3 episodes into the series Power
And not one darn moment has been boring or sour

even and amidst the in-house and familial quarrels.
The FBI has not been shy in serving up warrants.

First at Tasha and Ghosts’ place– though now we are to call Ghost James.
Second the FBI raided TRUTH & introduced a gun into the game.

The gun was planted in Ghosts office behind the wet bar
Turning certain evidence from probable to gold star. ⭐️

What about Kanan? Or shall we call him Slim?
He’s the power source to Tariq’s dark & grim.

Kanans evil intents are finger prints all over Ghosts’ fam,
While Angela presses forward on ‘not giving a damn.’

The FBI warrants were a slam to further embolden the line
That Angela believes Ghost indeed took Greg’s life.

Wow. All of this from the chick
Who was trying to assume Tasha’s schtick.

James was Ghost-thick and for one moment he lost true sight
Of how dangerous his life could really be shagging an FBI agent at night.

Webp.net-gifmaker (4).gifAngela is the changing variable in the St. Patrick’s way of life.
Yet the burden to clean this up this mess belongs to “the wife.”

It’s a bumb-deal but Tasha really has no choice,
She’s got 3 reasons to push on: 2 girls and 1 boy.

The Death Penalty is waiting for James as he sits in the legal stable.
Angela’s colleague, good ol’ John filed for it and now it’s on the table.

TRUTH, James’ nightclub is dealing drugs and  in mode: creative throttle.
They’re funneling drugs as liquor sales when patrons buy 2 bottles.

It’s a risky business. Angela assumed they could nail Tommy and James via a drug operating – ploy.
But for every person the agents interviewed James sounded like a choir boy.

Hardy-har-har! That’s how it all went down –
Leaving the prosecution team looking like clowns.

But James is still on prison lockdown
The whole “quick bail thing” hasn’t come around

And his new 2nd chair defense attorney Terry,
Is a realistic brother whose analysis isn’t so merry.

Proctor is 1st chair and Terry is the heavy hitting muse.
Terry told Proctor if he’s Tommy’s lawyer too, he needs to recuse.

But Proctor said, ‘No way.
I brought you in to Death Penalty slay
.’
…Well, that’s my little paraphrase.😊

During Terry and Proctors visit with James this  recollection came to light:
Agent Knox pulled James over in traffic before he died that night.

power-agent-greg-knox.jpg

RIP Agent Greg Knox

This is as important as wind is to a sail
Because Agent Knox had James’ DNA under his finger nails.

That FACT alone was duly solidifying
that James was the killer and probably lying,

To: Angela

To Me: Angela is so wrong
to sing such strong and questionable song.

But what can I say?
Jamie made this bed in which he lays.

Tariq is still stewing in trouble and too hormonal to say;
Tommy suspects foul-play and leans in for information from Dre.

Lord help me today because there’s another episode coming.
I just hipped you to  episodes 1-3, tonight 4 is gunning.

Will you be watching?
There’ll be a lot of Power clocking.

You don’t want to miss this – it broadcasts tonight on STARZ.
I’m Qui
Good Sabbath to thee – get your strongest Power from the Lord.

and yeah, the show goes hard – that ain’t no bull.
This production never fails to be POWER Full.no-bull.gif

POWER is necessary

ghost-vs-milan-power

Milan assumes Ghosts position….

Who has the POWER to “CALL THE SHOTS?” Did you watch last Sunday night?
STARZ had the POWER for a whole hour and in HD – it was pretty tight.

The script writing is succulent tender – though the bite is still solid and tough.
Ghost and Tommy are at it again, chickens in the pen, but pills are the rush.

Milan is the cannibal whose ‘CALLING THE SHOTS and running the block.
Tommy is his new protege’ and Ghosts ropes have officially been docked.

He and Tasha had an intimate moment that lead them straight to the bed
afterwards Ghost mentioned “taking out Milan” and it wore heavy on Tasha’s head.

She called ol’ Tommy-boy and told him that he “needs to stop Ghost” 
because if his “Milan execution” fails – she and the kids life would be toast.

Tommy knows this all to well, Milan threatened Tommy’s life to his face.
Tommy’s mad at Ghost for ‘plotting-the-most’ and is off to a half cocked race!

ruiz-greg-power

AUSA Greg Torres and Ruiz

So fast off to the races he headed up the breeze
that he used to chauffeur and then OFF Ruiz!

Yes indeed. He personally knifed him up.
Ghost was using Ruiz for the Milan – FBI bust.

Without Ruiz in the cut, Greg is waiting empty handed for the wire.
AUSA Greg wired Ruiz up in hopes to catch some “Ghost convo” fire.

And if Greg ever retrieves that recording device off of Ruiz’s dead body
Tommy will have fingered himself as GHOST while killing Ruiz. Loddy-doddy.

Before episode 9 ended, Tommy was back at Milans warehouse post
where he sat down with Milan and said, “We need to kill Ghost!”

Power Season 3

Tasha’s goto is Tommy now?

 

Do what? Things are like THAT now? Ol’ Tommy-boy is scary.
Ghost is in the dark, Tasha requested the dim spark
and once again the POWER is necessary.

Whose holding it and how exactly are they executing?
I’m Qui
following the hand of the writers – as they do character rebuking.

Ghosts is feeling quite cellophane.
Tasha and Tommy are back-dooring his game.

kanan-tariq-power-ep9

Kanan connects with Tariq on everything but the right thing…

What’s most insane is that there’s 1 more episode left.
Kanan is doing the underbelly thing – spinning a nasty web.

He’s taken to Ghosts son, Tariq, and is manipulating him well.
Kanan has plans to mold the childs hands
to continue “Ghosts generational hell.”

Are you still watching are you locked in and clocking?
The season may be wrapping up but the cold writing isn’t stopping!

PS… Where the “L” is Keisha (aka LaLa)?
She’s been missing since Tommy visited her spot.
Kinfolk, I tell ya, the script writing is….

POWER Plays and Executions

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows on July 22, 2016 at 6:54 am

Power S3 2016There’s a whole lot of POWER
During that Sunday prime time hour
that’s broadcast on STARZ.
Situations, bizarre.

They’re back at it again. It is now Season 3
Watching this – is where, you want to be.

 

Are you watching?
Alliances are dropping.
Jaws are wide open
And Tommy is hopin’
He can MUSCLE the game together.
Ghost or no Ghost – it’s all about that cheddar.

Yep! Lobos is alive & well and is doing just fine,
He’s back to moving weight and Ghosts life is on the line.

By the end of Episode 1, amidst POWER, all was going to hell —
power-tv-seriesThat’s when Ghost rose up and placed a call to Tommy’s cell.

This episode seems to have awaken Ghost, and with that – out goes last seasons change.
Discard the namesake of the episode 1, which was then appropriately titled: Call Me James.

The POWER is mine today – it’s Friday and my energy is claiming this one to be a FUN DAY,
I’m Qui
Saying Oui-Oui — I’ll see you post the second hour of POWER on next Sunday.

Let your hair down and go out to play.
The POWER is yours on this awesome day.

It’s over now! We’re done!

In Communication, Griot, Music, Networking, TV Shows on August 19, 2015 at 6:09 am

PlumQui-2015cropI knew this day was coming and as much as I prepared myself for it, week after week, when it finally did happen… well, I’d be lying if I said I was ready. I have been on the edge for weeks now thinking about POWER‘s seasonal fade-to-black and I knew that LOVE & HIP HOP [Atlanta] would be following their lead. Yes, I knew it all had to end at some point, I watched intensely with bated breath.

POWER chose to execute rather than rebuke therefore Kanan found himself in a cellophane situation. He and Ghost were going at it in a tussle, Kanan had a gun, he dropped it. The two beef sided brothers went at it and broke up the surrounding decorum in the process. A body slam maneuver was executed and the men landed hemselves in a floor scuffle. Ghost picked up a dagger shaped piece of glass and slid it into Kanans side. He collapsed; eyes closed. Ghost then took  jug of gasoline and dowsed the premises around Kanan and lit the place on fire as he exited the door.

Yep-yep! That was it and it was cold. Karan got what was coming to him, however before the credits could run the fire investigation revealed there was no body found on the premises. Ghost is unaware of this fact. Who has the POWER now?

kaleena+tony

Kelenna and her Manager/Hubby Tony

LOVE & HIP HOP [Atlanta] was pretty serious. Kaleena is getting the help that she needs and Tony is back in the managers seat of her career. Margeaux told Nikko that the person that she is currently in a relationship is a woman.  A couple of episodes ago we witnessed Margeaux tell Nikko and his mother that she wanted a divorce. Nikko’s mom asked her was she seeing someone else – Margeaux positively affirmed. Afterwards, mother, son and the viewing public were left to assume with whom? At least now we can appropriately direct her affections for her new love to the pronoun “she.” Nikko asked her if she were gay or bisexual now? His wife responded, “I love from the inside out.”  Well said Margeaux.

Jessica Dime finished up her performance that Mimi arranged for her shortly thereafter she ended her career with MF Management and told Mimi and Stevie J to ‘f@#k off’ right before she exited the scene kicking and screaming.

Do whaaaaaat?

Yes. She did and Stevie J called it “stripper behavior,” after Jessica said more than once (to Stevie J), “I fight N#%%#’s too.” But she wasn’t fighting Joseline – remember when Dime came to see Jos’ at the studio? She chunked her clutch bag, but she wasn’t really stepping to fight.

Speaking of Joseline, the end didn’t look good for her this season. She and Stevie J closed this one out on the rocks. Stevie asked Mimi to consider moving her and their daughter to LA with him. Well not “with him” as in the same home, but he did ask her to relocate and no – I do not think he talked this idea over with Jos prior, but Karlie tried to give her a heads up…

Karlie-Joseline-LHHA

L-R: Karlie Redd & Joseline Hernandez of LHHA

After Joseline’s GAYBORHOOD performance Karlie went backstage with roses and congratulations for Joce’. She told Joce’ that she had run into Mimi and Jos face turned sour. Karlie then dropped the 411 about Mimi saying that Stevie asked her to move to LA. Joseline responded by kicking Karlie out of the dressing room and hitting her in the forehead with the very flowers she bought for Joseline. The 2-women almost went tit-for-tat, but security was quick.

Now in all fairness, I think that Joseline overplayed her response to Karlie due to misplaced emotions. Before hearing Karlie’s 411 Joseline noticed the flowers and note from Stevie J., she opened the letter and began to read the first 2-lines of the letter and put it down and said something to Karlie like, ‘Un-un. I don’t want to read this right now, because Stevie ain’t here,’ and then encouraged Karlie to continue her conversation.  Naturally when Karlie dropped the bomb Joselyn was poised on the edge – ready to react like the ticking time bomb, that she can be and then BOOM! She exploded. It wasn’t a good look, but it happened and kicked Karlie out of her dressing room with he help of security.  Joseline went home alone to that evening to enjoy a mono-bubble bath and champagne for 1. Life is rough sometimes.  Meanwhile Stevie J is in route to LA. without his Puerto Rican Princess.

decorative-line-divider1
What is HIP HOP without LOVE? Nikko and Stevie have at episodes point – lost theirs.
Each was a casualty of the music in part, yet both men were surprised and unprepared.

Fair or not Fair the heart loves whom and what it wants.
And Stevie was wrong for singing “the family song” and expecting Mimi to LA haunt.

This was the part that crushed Joseline’s heart and now it’s all messed up.
The Puerto Rican Princess feels hurt and dissed in her bubble lathered tub.

LHHA‘s season finale was a little bit rough,
my patience will pique on until next season, ’cause I can’t get enough.

Everybody needs somebody, Kelenna has T, Rasheed has Kirk and the ‘hustle’ keeps the ‘flow,’
but who the hell is keeping Tasha and the kids? Because Angela is laid up with Ghost.

Oh-oh-oh no. POWER had an exciting finale hour.
Kanan was Copperfield and Ghost’s thing with Tasha is going sour.

Tommy doesn’t trust Ghost either because by golly
Ghost is the one who hosted the name change and relocation of his Holly.

No. Nobody seems to be on Ghosts side.
Even Ange’ has issues that she can not hide.

She turned in her partner – on a charge that’s a lie.
For the consolation of Ghost. Jamie is the big prize.

The episode was titled: GHOST IS DEAD and the resonation of actions were heard,
I’m Qui
and I tell you what, Ghost will be dead soon enough if Kanan finds him first.

I know Kanan has his reasons,
so I’ll sit tight until next season…

POWER

I love it and I know that you have been watching.
The series is ON FIRE and I pray there’s no stopping.

I’m hooked. I’m addicted. I want it in the vein.
The writers are exciters of money, sex and drugs mane’.

It’s an accent thang’ – mane’ is my accented way of saying man 
and mane’ I’m on the edge with what Tommy‘s got planned for Ang.’

Are you watching? Curtis Jackson’s producing is juicing green.
I’d love to sit with the writers and spit about this creative thing.
column-seperation-divider

POWER has life. It is a being, it’s breathing and sometimes it causes me to hold my breath.
I’m hooked and I love it,  it’s rugged and the sound track is fresh to death.

column-seperation-divider
Season 2: Episode 7 aired on July 25th and I DVR’d.
I like to get a couple on the books, so I can spend 2-hours HARD.

Good Lawd! Please tell me that you’re watching? I’m gonna drop this spoil-filled review.
If you missed Season 1, STARZ got the fun – ‘gone head and catch up to Season 2.

On Episode 7 Angela went to Ghost
and professed that she wants Tommy the most.

Before she stated that, Tommy was coked up and noid,
with his gun and his intentions – he was going to make Angie a VOID.

Tasha stopped him because Ghost advised her, that he [Tommy] would be on that route
and that he shouldn’t take it. It’s the wrong ‘choice for his pick of bouts. ‘

Angie went to Scranton to find Holly. Holly is under alias as Monica Monroe.
Holly was on alert that Ang’ was coming, then connected her speaker phone to Ghost.

To whom POWER is yielded to the most, let it be known that
Ghost got game and that’s a myriad corner fact.

His bases are covered and he looks good in season two,
there’s so much tribe going on, not mention Stern and TRUTH.

Truth is the night club Ghost owned that Stern has mobbed away from him.
Stern is trying to divorce his wife at current and Ghost is making the ease of – grim.

In Episode 7 Ghost gave a ‘heads up’ to Sterns estranged wife
and told her about Ravenna Holdings and Sterns off-shore money life.

I think Ghost has found a new ally.

Tasha slept with Shawn again — you know how that went down,
but then Ghost checked Shawn for ‘phone fidgeting’ and looking like a clown.

Every time Ghost seems to catch Shawn in view
He’s on the phone and looking goofy too.

By the time Ghost get’s closer to Shawn during such,
Shawn says, “I gotta go” and then he hangs the phone up.

Ghost checked him but he doesn’t know that Shawn’s talking to Tasha.
He said ‘he doesn’t trust Shawn,’ – he has no idea about his own baby’s Moma.

Each hour of POWER is filled with drama and I just couldn’t help but series flex,
I’m Qui
and STARZ is on it, Kudos to all who put-in on THIS – I can’t wait to see what’s next!

You know, even if they all steady their own course
in the end there’s still going to be a lot of Survior’s Remorse.

Ghost has got some serious game, balls and POWER.
Will Kanan, Tommy, Lobos or Angie’s plan sour?
