The CRAZY part is, my boy Matt & I had been chatting about her for like the past few days! I was like- that is uber weird. So, I hit her up to see if it was really her or a fan page. She said it was really her. Man, I LOVED me some Blu Cantrell, with the rest of yall! Her music really empowered women to do them! We need her back asap! I told her about this blog and she said she'd keep me up to date with anything she has going on, and I'll be sure to let you all know! So, I decided to feature her today!We wish her the best!

The9000boyz Bring Keep It Classic Wednesdays to the Inferno!

This week has been an extremely busy week for me BabyKayKs!! Whew! Im extremely happy with the way it turned out though...Part of the lovely madness included a gig I had with the beautiful Promise, that I invited all of you to on Wednesday at Inferno. It turned out to be a great success. The event is put on every Wednesday by the9000boyz , a group of music professionals who also do events & online tv. The9000boyz consists of: I.L., KG, Leslo, Snotty, 2Fly, B Mann, and Black. Keep It Classic Wednesdays is just one of the events the fellas do.

It is an artist showcase that features the dopest acts ATL has to offer. Last Wednesdays show was amazing. Everybody did great! It was my first time getting to hear my girlie Brie do her thing w/ Sir Will & the Rose Parade live, and now I see what the hype is about- they KILLED! That Neveah & Brie shut it down, and of course Will just blew us away! Absolutely a fan now. Also my boys Dukes of Daville were in full effect! Its literally been years since I seen these guys live and I loved it just as I used to! They are an incredible band! Promise did her thing with a lil help from myself and a fellow songwriter PG. Even under the weather my girlie rocked out & she was super fly while doing it!

There were a lot of people in the buildin! My girl Heather one of the baddest dancers I know rocked the stage with singer Corey Mekell and did what she does, which is slay the dance floor! Those Kittys Litter girls, I tell ya! lol. S/O to some other dope industry people who were in the building/hit the stage: amazing producer DClax, drummers my boys JBake & Jeremiah, singer Sam Blair, crazy songwriter Chase J,Nivea was in the buildin looking great, photographer/blogger KodakBoi (, Nick Hagelin, Tayma Loren, dope hairstlyist Tokyo, and Jimmy Henne C! It was great to see/meet everyone! loved the energy in that place. Make sure you all check it out next week! Pics below, TNT BabyKayKs

Today's selection is by none other than the wonderfully talented, and equally beautiful Ledisi! This was her performance on the Monique Show, and boy oh boy. This woman's range is just stupid! I mean stupid in a good way. She's such a performer!!! Now, I usually shy away from the squallers, but I love her. Her album, Turn Me Loose is in stores now and Ledisi also is a 2010 Grammy Nom!!!! Love her, the album is great! When our First Lady Michelle Obama was asked who she listened to...guess who she said- Ledisi!!! LOL! Yes ma'am The First Lady knows great music when she hears it! This particular song is about self love- and I believe its something a lot of people, especially my sisters are missing!!!!! You have to love yourself before you expect any man to come a long and do so. Listen to the words! Enjoy BabyKayKs!

Music That Moves Me

This is a throwback but any singer/musician can appreciate the incredible harmony these fellas produced. Everything feels great about them a capella! I've always loved them because my big brother listened to them a lot. I mean, Im not sure anybody can say they didnt listen to B2M in the 90s.. Shawn's voice is UNBELIEVABLE... I had a huge crush on Wanya growing up- his voice is amazing..- they are just really talented. When I was a preteen my brother flew out to Philly to work with a producer and got the chance to be up under these guys for a while. He always pressed how clean they sounded together live and this is an example of what he meant!! I love these cat's music! Enjoy BabyKayKs.

Robby from City High has an Intervention

This is def not Season 2...but you get the picture!

One of my absolute favorite shows on tv is Intervention. It stems from my heart for people and my desire to see how people's lives can change. I have blogged before about substance abuse and how much I am moved by people's personal struggles...moved to help in some way. Last night's episode of Intervention featured a familiar face to some of us: Robby from the group City High. Below is a clip of the show for those of you who missed it. I pray he stays on the road to recovery for himself, but mainly for his daughter who needs her father's love and attention. The industry- though not responsible per se for artist's addiction- is like a grand introduction to all things bad for you and can be a very difficult place for someone not strong enough to fight the temptations.

Many artists/celebs struggle with some form of substance abuse, and it is obvious that coping with that lifestyle can be extremely difficult. Whats the moral? Though it hurts to discuss and even to watch your favorite celeb take a turn for the worst (as it is always obvious- even physically when they do) it is also very helpful in showing that these people are REAL, and have real struggles just as you do. Lets all send a prayer up for Robby and the other people who bring so much joy, love, excitement into your lives. Celebs help to create some of your most cherished memories, and usually we dont think much about the burden placed on them. My prayers are with Robby again, and his family! TNT BabyKayKs

Hope For Haiti Now!!

George Clooney the Hope For Haiti mastermind- thank you Mr. Clooney Thank you!!

Over the weekend, I was went on one of the biggest emotional roller coasters of my life. One minute my heart was filled with joy and the other tears beckoning at the edge of my eyes. Actor/Movie Producer (and one of the finest men I know!)teamed up with MTV and a list of the biggest stars/artists alive and put together a show that aired on almost every major television station and radio here in Atlanta and across the nation. Hope For Haiti Now was one of the most touching things to experience. They told real stories of hope, and had celebrities on line to answer the calls of the many people desperate to give relief the the Haitian people.

Among the artists were : Wyclef of course, Jay Z, Beyonce, Sting, A. Keys, Christina Aguilera, Dave Matthews, John Legend, Timberlake, Stevie Wonder,Rihanna, Kid Rock, Keith Urban, Sheryl Crow and Taylor Swift. If you wanted to feel a part of a bigger human connection, that show would've definitely done that for you. I know it did so for me. Some of my highlights were Beyonce, Wyclef, and Justin Timberlake's performances.I was SO moved moved!! All of the performances were available (Im not sure if they still are) on itunes the next day for .99 I love that we are all coming together for Haiti! We are all a part of a bigger plan, a bigger family, and a bigger purpose! Learn to help and you'll learn to live!

Beyonce accompanied by Chris Martin of Coldplay! "Halo" Ugh- this girl is just an AMAZING vocalist/performer!!!!! Kudos B!

Justin Timberlake "Hallelujah" accompanied by Matt Morris! I was in TEARS! From one singer to another this is a PERFECT vocal!

Earthquake, we felt the Earth shake, but the spirit of the Haitian people, THAT will never break!-Wyclef

Dont forget to help however you can! I love you all... Im tearing up writing this..TNT BabyKayKs

Whats Hannenin:Events In the A!

Rasheeda & Nivea, Sir Will & The Rose Parade among artists who hit the stage at ATL For Haiti Relief Effort at Obsessions!!
My girl Miss Brie (@MissBrieDidIt)1/2 of the Rose Petals in Sir Will & the Rose Parade, Rasheeda (@RasheedaGaPeach), Nivea (@1RandyWatson), and Miss Neveah the other 1/2 of the Rose Parade CUTE ladies!!

A few days ago, I uploaded a joint that Nivea & Rasheeda did for the MTMM feature. They remixed Timbaland and Drake's Say Somethin...and it is hot! Since I heard that record I dont care to hear the original. Its like when it drops on the radio, you're just praying its Niv's hook you hear come in, lol no shade to Drake, but that remix goes hard! Last night along with a few other artists, they came together and performed it live for the ATL for Haiti benefit show at Club Obsessions! I wasnt able to make it, but thanks to Freddyo and Kodak Boi I have a few photos and a video of their performance. Among the artists there were rapper, Diamond (formerly of Crime Mobb), & Sir Will and the Rose Parade which is another dope act s/o to my girly Brie - I know they ripped the stage as always!!!!!

Rasheeda is just that chic right?! I mean, I love her style and she went super hard on this remix. She's not a joke on the mic people, and everytime I hear her the more convinced I am that sooo many rappers male & female swagger jack her on a regular, but each his/her own. She def was killin in those SB shades (Im gonna have to interview this cat- his shades are everywhere!)!! I must say again that Im so glad to hear Niv back doing her shade to the other female singers out, but we just need something refreshing...and I have a feeling Nivea is gonna bring it with this next album. She's killing us w. the fashion as well-- ha! Dont act like yall dont remember, Niv was rocking the funky colored hair way before anybody else... I guess its safe to say...sheeee's baaaaack. lol. Enjoy the pics and video and again s/o to Freddyo & Kodak Boi TNT BabyKayKs

Music That Moves Me

Today's selection was actually sent to me by someone I met on twitter, a songwriter, Thee Underclassman from the production team, The Lion's Den. We met while on a ustream with my girl Cristyle "the Ink" Johnson. I get a lot of songs sent to me to RT, or listen to. Im gonna start showing these indie/underground artists some love, and after you hear this you'll know why! Im a writer myself and its kinda hard to get noticed, attention in this game even when youre dope! So today's selection is by Jeramy Bailey produced by Lions Den! Enjoy BabyKayKs

Music That Moves Me

Or maybe we should call this "Music That Moves Jayde" lol. Every now and then I ask on twitter what songs people would like to suggest for this section. The other week I chose Niece's "Bad Romance" by GaGa...and today we're gonna go with Jayde's pick because its her birthday!!!! I'd never have posted this/listened to it before, but its actually kinda hot. Jayde is a sweet heart and she has shown this blog SO much love, so hey its the least we can do right!? Happy Bday mama...I hope you have a blast this weekend w/your big sis!! Im not sure the A is ready for ya! lol Enjoy BabyKayKs

Christina Milian says Get it Right MTO!
Click to follow Christina on Twitter!
The gorgeous singer/songwriter/actress/mommy to be/wife of producer Dream *whew* lol Christina Milian took to her twitter page to defend her recent trip to a Sushi restaurant. MTO posted a story entitled "Dangerous Meal" reporting that the singer was seen leaving a sushi restaurant and posted pictures of her walking down the street(which didnt have any sushi in them, but hey..its MTO).

The implication is that Christina is set to have a baby here soon, and everyone knows that raw fish is not good for pregnant women. Christina took to her twitter page to make sure that people understood she was not putting her child into harms way! Blogs should be more careful about what they post- some things are just not worth implying! Get your stories straight- obviously this mama will be no joke once her little one gets here!!As always we wish her a happy/healthy pregnancy/birth/and baby :) Christina has visited us before :) You can find her comment in the Twitter love section! TNT BabyKayKs

There are cooked things to eat at a sushi restaurant @Mediatakeout... Duh, I have done my research and would never put my baby in danger so

Hope I don't sound harsh, but yeah I am very aware of the dangers. And no, I didn't eat any sushi. I am just already very protective

PS: Have yall seen her lately? OMG..she is carrying SO well... she's one of those adorable pregnant

Wale on #ThatThing

Rapper Wale recently spoke to Honey Mag about Love..... and now I think Im in love with him, lol. This is for the grown ups, but I feel that he's making lots of relevant points! Read on BabyKayKs.


The irony in the pursuit of success is that once some of us achieve the dream we swore we wanted, the things that were important on the road to it tend to deteriorate — family, “friends” and often love.

When I was in early high school, I would chant nonsense like money over bitches. Looking back, I cringe. After failed relationships, failed “flings,” failed attempts at being a gigolo, player, or anything under that umbrella, I made a self declaration that 2010 will be the year of #thatthing. #thatthing is an absolute anomaly. It’s unexplainable. It soothes, it kills, it holds, it harms. It literally can grant life or death with one touch. And for this reason, many of us wear masks, metaphorically of course. Masks that cover insecurities. Masks that prevent #thatthing from capturing you in its relentless clutch. The fear of being hurt, for some, is far more important then the joy of being in love.

Women, how many men have you met who surround themselves around so many women, they wouldn’t be able to distinguish “the one” if she were right under his nose? I propose the same question to the dudes: Have you ever courted someone and did everything in your power to make her “open her eyes” (Bobby Caldwell x Common)? Yet she still wants to be in the club every other day or she tells you she doesn’t want commitment. That is her trying not to be vulnerable. That is the proverbial wall that can’t be penetrated because even the briefest daydream of #thatthing will send her into shock. #thatthing has the staring role in life’s movie. A nigga may have never experienced #thatthing, but his mother/father/sister/brother/teammate’s experiences may have been enough to instill the fear. A woman may never have experienced that thing, but her homegirl/bestfriend/play-cousin just may have made a fool of herself at a local club, go-go, movie theater or mall because of #thatthing.

I’ve decided to pursue monogamy this year because #thatthing is beautiful. I literally drove down South Dakota Avenue with a North Face coat (the big joint) some basketball shorts, a wifebeater, and Timberlands. (Nike boots were muddy) on a summer night, because I wanted to show her “how real these tears are.” I can laugh at myself now, but at the time #thatthing had me lunchin’.

Ladies, Gents — #thatthing don’t give a * what she/he looks like, either. Many of us have fallen victim to the I-can’t-believe-I-used-to-sleep-with-that-monstrosity syndrome. Another result of #thatthing. For fear of hurting someone’s feelings (and encouraging an angry woman to stalk me), let’s just say I once was so caught up in #thatthing, I looked past several character flaws (as well as physical) for an extended period of time.

I have to ask myself why. Is it the thrill of chase? Spending nights under the covers talking about nothing? Your partner is so “perfect” that just to hear their breath is the most tranquil feeling in the world (and completely trumps a quick nut from a jump-off.) Her sex is so good I look past the fact that she has no job, no car, no ambition, and no drive. Or ladies — maybe he f*%cks so good that you forget that he has six children and he’s only 25. The most proud can be publicly foolish. The shy guy can transform into the most outspoken. The moment your heart and hormones start to fight for control of your brain, you’re probably caught up in #thatthing.

My pursuit of #thatthing is a difficult one. I like to consider myself an unrecognizable famous person, meaning I can still do the things most 25-year-old employed black men can do, without too much attention. But at the same time, a lot of these women know who I am, (albeit never heard a song. LOL.) This is where the pessimism starts to creep in. And the paranoia that guides my judgment when exchanging numbers. Why does she want to talk to me? How long till she tells me she’s a model? I met Jay-Z in ‘99 he said he was gonna sign me. Can you ask him if we’re still good? Situations like this make the pursuit of #thatthing just as hard as shaking it off once acquired.

Well... he speaking knowledge right!?

I love your blog and one of my favorite sections is KayKi's Closet. I love the section but cant afford any of that stuff! Can you post stuff that us regular people can afford lol?! Thank you soooo much for your blog. I let my lil sister read it, she's 13 and Id hate to think of her reading those other blogs!

Dear BabyKayK,

I love that your lil sister can read my blog. I try to keep it light around here. Ok, you have quite a few things that I need to address. About your Ask Kayki about SB... Im working on it!!! I promise!!!! I am actually in touch with him now regarding an interview. You are 1 of 2 people that have inquired about him, lol...and I promise asap I will have your interview posted! SB has been really busy lately with Nicki, so he's gonna get back with me when he can, but its definitely coming!! Also I have a few Ask KayKis that I havent answered. Some of which because I personally reply to them, or because Im still trying to get good enough answers for you all. Sorry for the delay! Dont worry, if I will not post it I will let you know!! If you havent heard from me, that means Im still working on it :)

Now about the KayKi's Closet! Girl, thats a great idea! I will definitely find more reasonably priced things to post for us regular people (including me!! :) ) I just post what I think is hot for inspiration or whatever. I'll be sure to find something super hot and generally affordable and mix it in with the regular posts!! Great idea, sorry about that! muah!

Tell The Truth


Have you ever watched a movie where someone was being harmed and you wanted revenge for them because you felt their disparity. Then some kind of way the bad guy is caught and you feel a sense of overwhelming peace -even though the movie isnt real? Well, I just had a real life moment like that. I, honestly I cant form my words very well right now because Im so overwhelmed with these videos. Let me try to speak my piece in a concise way-the videos speak for themselves. Dont forget to donate to Click the link on the right panel of this blog to go straight to the donation page!

Excuse the title, its just a random one that was sent to me.

Ok, Mr. Pat Robertson. Here is an example of where a leader needs to know when to shut up! I dont care if God in the flesh came down with an army of angels and revealed to you that Haiti made a deal with the devil. This time, right now; while their babies are dying, friends/fam helplessly buried under mounds of concrete and years & years of poverty and ignorance on our part prior to this- is NOT the time to say such a thing. Are you kidding me? You are a man of God, but you feel it ok to say that these people are suffering right now because they have sold their souls to the devil? What part of that makes sense? IF you want to talk about people being full of hell...lets talk about the fact that Haiti has for as long as I can remember been a place on the brink of destruction because WE fail to acknowledge the value of the lives over there. Lets talk about how America is made up of a gazillion Christians, and churches but the most we do is send a mission trip or two over once a year while these people barely have food/shelter.

Lets talk about the fact that very little pressure is put on the Government by tax paying citizens like yourself (I hope) until something like this happens. You sir have to be a better steward of your position. When you hold the opinions of many in your hands/ must cherish that. What you say can encourage/discourage people to action. While you're talking about people shaking hands w/Satan somebody's child, mother, father, sibling, grandmother, pastor(Oh prob dont think they have those) is laying under a building praying to our God for help. I would think you of all people would be sending one up too instead of taking on the role of God and saying who's damned and who isnt.

Limbaugh... I dont like talking about fools and he's shown me over the years that he is I'll use the next few words to say how I feel about him. Limbaugh has built an empire off of hate! He gets off on being evil and spreading hatred. Someone who is consumed with bashing, I mean this is his job- has no life. He has no sense of what it means to be a human being, to love people, to build each other up instead of always ALWAYS tearing someone down.

Unfortunately you've bitten yourself in the ass this time. Your whole point is about how America is in need too and how Obama should be helping America, as if these arent people in Haiti too. No life, yours, mine is more valuable than another. To say that he came out within 24 hrs. to respond to the natural disaster that was the Haiti Earthquake totally negates your whole argument. If he ran to save a life in Haiti- it means he values life- but you are mad because we are struggling as a whole a little bit here in America. Life is life. How dare you down play what has happened in Haiti as if it equates in anyway (or has ever equated) to our little economic downturn????? Really? No, really?

Ok, BabyKayKs watch this one! This guy, Mr. Keith Olbermann speaks all of my frustration and Im glad. I think he addressed this situation very well!

Ok, I have no more to say- well I do, but I said I'd try to keep it short for yall sake so here my Please watch all three videos from start to finish! TNT BabyKayKs...walk in love.



This day in 1929, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was born. Now, I really dont have to go into detail about all that he was/is to this country and countries around the world. The fight for freedom on any level is a fight for freedom everywhere! IF you dont know who he is for some strange reason, use this day to research how his life changed yours. If you do know who he is, do the same! Familiarize yourself with his work. I think we often take it for granted just how much work he did for us.

We live everyday free to walk in and out of public places, free to vote, use public rest rooms when just a short while ago our parents/grandparents couldnt enjoy such things. So, please take this day, his birthday to really consider all of the repercussions of his life. I thank God for him, and his life, for losing his life for the cause of people he'll never know. We should never forget. Monday is the national holiday in his honor. Use it to help is a day of service!TNT BabyKayKs

Music That Moves Me

Have you all enjoyed the MTMM section this week. I said at the beginning of the week that I would strictly feature all inspirational music, and thats what I've done. I listen to lots of music and I'll be sure to make sure that this section reflects that. Today's selection needs no introduction. Its Kirk Franklin, everybody knows him! lol. I love this song, lyrically and musically. It goes from contemporary to straight church at the end. Enjoy BabyKayKs.

Ok, some of my BabyKayKs may be surprised by this selection. Remember I said at the top of the week that all of this weeks posts will be inspirational/Christian Music...and I keep telling yall I listen to EVERYthing! LOL. This is one of my faves by Casting Crowns, and quite relevant right now I feel. With all going on in the world- we cant sit around as if people dont need our help.

Well, we've heard what everybody else has to say-lets hear it straight from Jay's mouth- thats only fair right? Is he or isnt he a part of some cult? LOL! Jay was on his good friend Angie Martinez's show and used the time to speak his peace. For all who care- here's his answer.TNT BabyKayKs

Rest In Love: Teddy Pendergrass


I may be young, but I come from a very musical family. I am blessed to have grown up hearing all of the dusties/motown hits ever made. My parents to this day still have Records/45s and they still play them. I can remember hearing, "Turn out the lights..." or "Looks like another love TKO.." any given summer blazing at my Grandma's house in Chicago. I will never forget those sweet memories and Im indebted to Teddy P. for being a part of making them. We have definitely lost one of our greats! The wonderful thing about music though is that it lives on!!!!

Teddy P. passed away yesterday at the age of 59. Our prayers are with his family, friends, and fans! He will be greatly missed!

Haiti Still Needs Help!


A lot of times when these types of things happen, because we dont face them on a regular here in America its easy to become numb to the reality that others are facing. Dont just go on with your life as usual and forget that the people of Haiti still need your help. I heard on the Steve Harvey Morning Show this morning that not only do the people in Haiti not have access to fresh food/water, but they are also lacking the machinery necessary to maneuver all of the rubble! They are using their hands and some people are still trapped.

We have leaders such as Dr. Gupta saying things such as the situation is hopeless. Leaders, as Steve said today have to be very VERY careful with their word choices. When you have people's opinions (therefore actions) holding on to your every word, you can kill or birth their desire to help. I was displeased with Dr. Gupta's wordchoice w/ Steve. The situation in Haiti may not be hopeFUL, but its never HopeLESS. I know that there are too many good hearted people in the world who are willing to help! Please visit Wyclef's organization to donate- I recommend it. * Also below are a few more ways in which people are reaching out to help!

American Airlines are flying credentialed doctors over for FREE!!

UPS is shipping anything under 50 lbs to Haiti for FREE!!

*See the How to Help Haiti article for more info!
Also dont forget to pray! If you cant do anything else BabyKayKs dont feel bad. To those of you who make it rain in the clubs every weekend... Im gonna need you to help! TNT BabyKayKs!

How To Help Haiti


Please read Wyclef's (a native of Haiti and long time advocate-even before this!!) statement on the disparity in Haiti, and if you can, please help them. While it is great to donate to charities such as The Red Cross, be mindful that it is a general relief organization and your monies may not actually go TO Haiti victims who need them RIGHT now. I have supplied you all with a direct connect to someone who this is very personal for. Thank you from my heart. In lieu of this disaster, this will be the only post I put up today. TNT BabyKayKs
Click to Follow Wyclef for more updates!

Haiti today faced a natural disaster of unprecedented proportion, an earthquake unlike anything the country has ever experienced. The magnitude 7.0 earthquake – and several very strong aftershocks – struck only 10 miles from Port-au-Prince.

I cannot stress enough what a human disaster this is, and idle hands will only make this tragedy worse. The over 2 million people in Port-au-Prince tonight face catastrophe alone. We must act now.

President Obama has already said that the U.S. stands ready to assist’ the Haitian people. The U.S. Military is the only group trained and prepared to offer that assistance immediately. They must do so as soon as possible. The international community must also rise to the occasion and help the Haitian people in every way possible.”

Many people have already reached out to see what they can do right now. We are asking those interested to please do one of two things: Either you can use your cell phone to text “Yele” to 501501, which will automatically donate $5 to the Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund (it will be charged to your cell phone bill), or you can visit and click on DONATE.

Stephen Stafford II 13 yr. old Triple Major at Morehouse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Click for the full story!

First s/o to bossip for actually posting something I care to read. How amazing is this kid BabyKayKs? I am a Spelmanite so it does my heart well to know that he is attending my unofficial (Morehouse's sister school is Bennett College-didnt know that huh? lol) brother school Morehouse. I am in awe of this young man and how Morehouse has embraced and nurtured him. Im just confused as to why this is not national news and how is it that he started at 11 and it wasnt national news then. Not only is he a student there at 13, but he is a not double but TRIPLE major!!!!! Umm... on top of that its pre-med/math/&CS! Un be freakin lievable! I love it! I wish him much success in his future endeavors. Shout out to my lil Morehouse brother too precious (he's way smarter than me, let me stop!) LOL TNT BabyKayKs

So as you all know KayKi's closet is not just for the ladies. I had to be reminded that I havent posted anything for the fellas in a while. Shout out again to my oldest bro Frank for putting me on to this bangin D&G hoodie for the fellas (though I'd rock it any day!). Its simple but fly at the same time.

This joint is pretty popular! These ladies are as well. I give Mary Mary credit from the door for being artists who arent afraid to do things a little differently to reach different people. Many people who know nothing about gospel music still know MaryMary and that is great. I had someone text me who only knew of Mary Mary to ask for other artists just because they wanted to hear more. We are meant to plant seeds in people and thats what the Marys do.

If by chance you dont know them. The real life sisters Erica and Tina popped up on the scene a few years back with another great record "Shackles". Ever since that album they have been comfortably sitting as one of gospel musics greatest artist of our time. They are known not only for their crazy sense of style and fashion, but for their love of Christ and absolutely amazing gifts. They both are wives and mothers and still have strong on going careers. You may also know them as judges on BET's Sunday's Best show or one of the numerous other ventures. I thank God for Mary Mary and I pray that they continue to break boundaries and present the gospel to more people!

Sarah Palin for Fox News??

You read that correctly seems as though former Republican Vice President candidate Sarah Palin just inked a deal with Fox News to be a contributor. I dont have much to say about this at all, but I figured maybe some of you cared. Click the photo for the full story.

Music That Moves Me

So, I decided yesterday that all of this week's MTMM sections will feature inspirational/Christian music. For many reasons: first off, I think I have a great insight on this music and I'd be a great person to recommend a few artists for those of you looking to build your collection, also a good friend of mine hit me up yesterday asking for some recommendations after I'd already said I was gonna do this. I took that as confirmation. There are SO many great artists out there, and Id love to put my readers up on some!!! So to start of course I've chosen my FAVORITE (since I can remember) artist Fred Hammond. Since I was a child, he has always been my favorite. I remember my mom buying me his Speak Those Things Live DVD one day and bringing it home, like "I know youre gonna love this!". I'll tell you what it has always been for me.

Fred writes songs that are about God! A lot of gospel music is about us and our hard times and how God is gonna see us through them. Fred has been writing Praise & Worship music (that everybody is so into now) since I can remember. It doesnt hurt that his melodies are sick & his songs are guitar/bass driven a lot which I absolutely love. So, he just makes music that I love to listen to both lyrically and musically. On top of that, its great how small the world is. My sister ended up marrying one of the most talented musicians that I know (Phillip Feaster) and just because God favors me (LOL!), he now plays for Fred. He cowrote & produced the latest project, "Love Unstoppable" along with a few others.

OK, Ok! Phillip has that gig because he deserves it! But it sure works out for me! LOL. Anywho, Fred's latest is absolutely insane! I love it! You cant say gospel without saying Fred Hammond in my opinion. Google him, he's incredible! Today's feature is a single from the latest project called , They That Wait. It features another legend in the game Pastor John P. Kee. This song is SO encouraging! Its definitely one you can jam too and one that will help motivate you to get up and keep going! Enjoy TNT BabyKayKs

The BBC goes Bowling for Scrappy's bday!


Click the image to visit Freddyo & see more pics!

To those of you not on twitter and not familiar with who the BBC is let me give a brief introduction. Rasheeda (@Rasheedagapeach -s/o to her for being so darn COOL! love her! lol. Always showing me love.), Diamond(see pic), Toya(see pic), Tiny (@tinymajormama), and (@kandiconnection)Kandi(and a few others from time to time- but thats the core group I'd assume) have branded themselves the BBC (Boss B Clique). They are all fly, and getting their money, working hard and they all are good friends. The tweet & meet I attended (see archive) was done by them as well. So, this past weekend they all(minus Tiny) went bowling to celebrate rapper Lil Scrappy's birthday! The tweets were hilarious! They kept twitter informed of who was winning, and who was sucking at the game, it was pretty fun to read.

Y.S.L. I really like these... Hot right? has em for about $400.. they are on sale!!!!!!!! lol
Sorry about the pic it resizes itself!? lol

Tell The Truth

We havent heard much from Keyshia Cole lately, but we have heard a lot about her! I got an email (not an Ask KayKi) just an email asking me if I am a K Cole fan or not and why I havent posted anything about her being married already. Well again..I never try to post anything that is not a proven fact. Other blogs post rumors/hateful things because thats what survive off of...I will never do that here. Freddyo did post a letter today straight from KC that I felt would help to solidify and questions her fans may have about whats happening in her life at the moment. This is not only a great point of clarity for her fans, but its also the reason why I dont post rumors. Now that KC has come out and said that the reports from her family are false, Im sure those other blog readers are like...what?! Thank God you read here & wont have that issue! TNT BabyKayKs

“To all my friends and fans – It’s time that I clear the air. It’s not a secret that I haven’t been in contact with my mother Frankie, and my sisters Neffe and Elite and I never wanted to air out our differences to the public. While I won’t go into detail here I find it necessary to let you guys know I decided to stop communication with them because I was at a point in my life where I needed serenity and peace to move forward. Please know I love my family very much but it was time to let it go. You guys are a witness to a lot of what was happening from watching on air and online. Now that I am becoming a mom my passion for having a loving and peaceful home for my child is my #1 priority. It’s very important to both Daniel and I. My plate is very full; I have a new baby coming, we are planning our wedding and I am working in the studio on a new album that I am close to completing. The stress that my family is giving me with their constant false reports is not healthy and it’s not what I need at this time in my life. Please understand that there are only a few people that can officially confirm or deny anything that’s happening in my life and that’s me, Daniel, and my publicist, Tresa Sanders. And my girl Monica never lies.”
Love Your Girl,

Click the photo to follow Tweet on Twitter!

Tweet has to be one of the most classic artists of our time. I recently sat in a meeting w/ a mutual friend Victor (its always I sing w. him& he knows a'erbody lol) and a few others and we went IN just talking about her albums and how her music just speaks through to your heart. Lyrically & vocally tweet is simply amazing! I remember going through some things in my relationship and I lived/ate/slept "Southern Hummingbird" as if it had just been released! You know an album is classic when you can pull it out literally years later and it still FEELS relevant and timeless.

I personally appreciate tweet as a vocalist because as a vocalist myself its comforting to hear someone who can very well riff you to glory, but she knows how to approach a song. She knows that all of the riffs and such are not always necessary, and that her tone & lyric alone can carry a listner to where ever that song is meant to take them *Take notes singers*. I recently had the pleasure of singing with her in the audience and when I say I was nervous because of that. OMG! lol..and I dont really get that way often, but I just respect her so much vocally that its singing for you? ummm..maybe next time :)

Also on a whole other tip... follow me BabyKayKs... There is something special about Tweet's voice. Something different. Something that heals you. I always have said that she should do a Christian (ok..gospel lol) album because of that. Some people when they open their can just feel and know that God gave them something special on purpose. Like Brandy or Whitney, like really God...thats how You feel? lol! Tweet is an example of that. I could have very well chosen any song by Tweet as a MTMM feature because they all move me! The industry (her peers) is long awaiting her next project and that alone says a lot about someone's work! So enjoy this new record from the lovely Tweet and also look out for her daughter/twin (they look JUST a like! lol) StarChild who is just as dope. They remind me of my family in that everybody is just walking around with crazy vocals. TNT BabyKayKs
