Legend Dirt Bike James

Legend Dirt Bike James

James Cedric Hayden, affectionately known as “ Dirtbike James” was born January 9,1971 in East Harlem , New York.

Dirtbike James was a legend in the streets but most importantly in the Bike World.

Growing up in Harlem around the 80s era money was the most important thing on every hustler’s mind and unfortunately for James who was only 23 as a result he was sentenced to 48 years in federal prison for drug charges. Of course the FBI tried their hardest to convince James to cooperate so he can receive a lighter sentence. But James was an honorable man and deeply believed in DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR.

But his story doesn’t end there. Thanks to our FOREVER President Barack Obama James was able to come home earlier. Obama signed the Fair Sentencing Act of 2010 into law that dramatically reduced a 100-to-1 sentencing disparity between powder and crack cocaine, which disproportionately affected minorities. His administration also advocated for, and the U.S. Sentencing Commission approved, the retroactive application of these sentencing guidelines which became effective

Thankfully for this new law Dirtbike James returned home on time served after completing 19 years and KEEPING HIS MOUTH SHUT!

While James was away a childhood friend would tell him stories of a bike club Go Hard Boys and he would also share his vision with James , a vision to gather the best riders and supporters to make the GHB family. Celebrities such as Fetty Wap, Kirk Frost, and Ronnie Faisst are also members and major supporters of the bike organization. But GHB is bigger than bikes.  GHB is heavily involved into the community . GHB 100 day is a day where the organization gave  the homeless sandwiches,water, and socks sponsored by Vans. For the past 8 years GHB has also hosted turkey giveaway drives for the less fortunate sponsored by Jim Jones, Fetty Wap and Saucey Extracts. Dirtbike James would soon be renamed and internationally known as “The General” of Go hard Boys.

Unfortunately James passed away March 3, 2020 due to a heart attack.

James is survived by his only daughter Jasmine Jones. Jasmine received her Bachelor’s Degree in Sports Management from Barry University , a major she pursued inspired by her father’s love for sports. Years later Jasmine would open up her own Sports and Entertainment firm where she worked closely with the NBA,NFL,WNBA , Showtime Sports, and much more! Carriyng her father’s legacy for his love for sports and especially the Dirtbike Culture, Jasmine was able to gather over 100 riders from NYC,Philadelphia,DC and other cities to ride through the streets of Harlem to show love and respect to the one and only  LEGEND DIRTBIKE JAMES.

Safaree and Erica Mena Finally Jump The Broom

Reality TV stars, Safaree & Erica Mena got married and most Love and Hip Hop viewers are surprised. Viewers had a chance to watch Safaree and Erica Mena throughout their relationship on the show which actually showcased a lot of turmoil.

In the episodes there were lies, fights and tears but the couple still got married. This makes me wonder is this what marriage looks like? I mean yes relationships are hard and people argue but is this what reality is?

I am happy if they are happy, everyone deserves love and happiness. Safaree used to be in love with superstar, Nicki Minaj and Erica Mena used to date Rich Dollaz, also a cast member on Love and Hip Hop.

I am happy these two found love because sometimes when all of your fights and drama are in the public eye people can tend to only see your faults.

Although, Safaree and Erica Mena are both on Love and Hip Hop New York they did not receive a spin off show or wedding episode. I wonder why because both of them have wild and entertaining personality. Yandy, Chrissy and Remy Ma had a spin off or special episode but maybe we will find out why later on.

Many people took to twitter to say they don’t think Safaree & Erica Mena will last. What do you think?

Trey Songz sued for 10 Million? Who’s telling the truth?

Trey Songz is back in the headlines but this time he is being sued for $10 Million. There has been allegations in regards to sexual assault and this is not the first time. However, the details of the current situation involve a female stating the singer touched her inappropriately specifically placing his finger in private areas.

He is known for making sexual music and having the ladies by his side. The past allegations were taken lightly as his fans are extremely loyal and his music always surpass the allegations. However, this start to 2020 is not going well as many people believe this story could be the real deal.

The problem with artists and fans is the disconnect. If you are a fan, you are essentially a stranger. The artist doesn’t know the fan, and most of the time the fans see dollar signs and beautiful vocals. There is no trust and no relationship. In business you can barter services or pay for what you want. In a friendship you are there for your friend. What is the relationship between fan and artist? Should it be a selfie and keep it moving?

So how do we know who to trust. I wasn’t there, you weren’t there. On one hand why would she lie about being sexually assaulted. But then again, suing for $10 Million dollars whether it took place or not is a lot of money that would help anyone’s bank account.

I would personally like to think he can have almost any woman he wants and wouldn’t violate someone especially with the vast amount of woman he’s been with.

It’s sad there has been so many stories, not just about Trey Songz but male entertainers in general because women have rights. They should not be afraid of going out and being sexually violated.

If Trey Songz is innocent, this is tragic because now the public is going to have a “bad taste” in their mouth whether its true or not because the story is literally everywhere. He makes really good music and I hope a resolution is found and the rest of 2020 turns out better for him.

To solve this common problem, there should be more barriers between artists and celebrities and the fans. Look social media gives you all the access you need, when you go to the club with the artists or wherever cameras need to be rolling. Protect the artists and the fans, everyone is getting to close. If they knew each other she wouldn’t ruin his reputation and he wouldn’t sexually violate her. Simple.

In 2020 keep your circles small…. Periodtttt.

Rich The Kid Proposes To His Girlfriend Tori Brixx

Rich The Kid has proposed to his girlfriend of 2 years, Tori Brixx and she said yes! Although, the couple was on Instagram live having a dispute it seems the couple has fought through the hard times and are ready to make a mends and this time for good.

On Instagram live Rich The Kid had an argument with Tori Brixx and the altercation was disturbing for some of his fans. Although there were curses flying and possibly a shove seen on the instagram live, I am happy they made up.

One thing I will always say is, it is difficult to live in the public eye. When you are famous regardless of whether you are a music artist, dancer, model or any form of entertainer you will be watched and you will be judged.

Rich The Kid apologized on Instagram to Tori Brixx and made it very clear that he loves her and and is truly sorry for his words and actions.

Rich The Kid, 27 years old had a baby with Tori Brixx this past April. Rich The Kid has two other children from his previous marriage.

Rich The Kid took to Instagram to say, “Honestly there are not too many words that can explain the feelin, it was magical, I was nervous af but I did it 😌💍.”

Rich The Kid is a very popular artist with his hits such as “Plug Walk” and “Richer Than Ever.”

Congratulations to the wonderful 2020 waiting for Rich The Kid and Tori Brixx.

Drake Sits Down For An Interview With Rap Radar

Wow! The time has finally come for an over 2 hour long interview with Rap Radar and the rap legend, Drake!

During the Drake interview, one very important thing that stood out is Drakes confidence. Drake knew how great he would become way before it became reality. 

“Things that I repetitively think about or say I’m able to manifest.” 

Drake always knew where he wanted to live and he lives exactly where he planned.

During the interview, Drake mentioned how much respect he has for the young artists breaking the boundaries of what music is. YNW Melly was mentioned in the interview  about how he’s able to create music with pain and the craziest melody.

You’ll always be chasing when people are like who are you?

Be in the Who is this moment .. trying to keep people interested you’ll be chasing that moment throughout your career. I love when Drake said this because this seems like one fact most people wouldn’t know unless they were famous.

“Your who is this moment is a big moment please be present in that moment and you’ll be trying to get that back forever.” 

Drake talks about Thank Me Later and mentions it had the least amount of personal touches and really was all about how many features can you get. A lot of pressure at that time. It’s so nice to have Drake open up about everything. 

Drake started out as an actor and many people didn’t believe he could become a Hip Hop artist. He even talks about the stigma of coming from Canada and no other artists making it.

The interview addresses family, dreams, music of course and more! I love how open Drake was in the interview and his ability to be humble and real.

This interview is great for all upcoming artists interested in becoming a successful music artist because there’s a lot of gems in the interview. Fans will have the answers they’ve been waiting for and all I can say is its worth every minute of the 2 hours.

Below is one of my favorite Drake records, What is yours?

Love and Hip Hop stars Erica Mena and Safaree are expecting a baby!!

I am beyond happy for Erica Mena and Safaree. We’ve saw firsthand both of their failed relationships and witnessed their relationship journey through the television screens and radio air waves. Now the time has come for them to procreate and I couldn’t be more happier. After the break of Nicki Minaj and Safaree I often wondered how the two would move on under the spotlight of the world.

Erica Mena was all over the tv screens known for explosive moments on Love and Hip Hop New York. She was even in a serious relationship with beauty Cyn Santana. They revealed her pregnancy with Safaree yesterday through social media. Erica Mena and Safaree have been together for a little while now and they seem to be really happy and I am very happy for them both.

Safaree has a lot of energy and Erica Mena can match it. I’m glad they have a family in the making, can’t wait to see what’s next for these two.

Woo Woo! Congratulations Cardi B on delivering a beautiful baby girl whose name is Kulture Kiari Cephus. Offset must be such a proud father right now. Kulture’s mother, Cardi B is a superstar and it’s beautiful to see a New York artist reach the type of success that Cardi B has seen. With such an immense amount of music artists trying to survive in an ever-growing changing industry sometimes success can seem impossible.
We watched Cardi B on Ig, saw her move on to the TV Screen, watched in aww at her live performances and now she is a mother. Talk about living out your best life in your 20’s.
Congratulations!
