Sean "Diddy" Comb is reported to be worth over 55 million dollar,s and in this case his son is the won who is the great athlete that has excelled also in the classroom. Before people applaud his achievement they start talking about this kid is robbing the school of money he does not need. As stated before they feel his father should pay for his education with no hesitation. Interesting, what happen to kids learning how to live own their own and discovering their own path in life. When did it become a good thing for kids to live off their parents and never know how to stand and walk on their own. This kid was not given this scholarship because of his namesake, he earned it. The people who are upset about his accomplishments should really be ashamed of themselves and should be encouraging this kid along with being proud he is not trying to leech off his dad to progress in life.
The real question is why are these people mad? It is not their money that is being used to pay for this kids scholarship. The other question is could this be because of his race, or could it be because of who his father is and maybe many people do not like his father's lifestyle. Either way people are making a big deal out of nothing. If he was going to school off of Government grants, maybe then people should be outraged that he is taking unnecessary money from us.

So Thursday it was proven that not every celebrity get special privileges. Lil Wayne tried to watch the game and was denied access into the arena. After these events happen he went straight to twitter to let his loyal fans know
Was going to go to the Thunder game tonight but was denied by the team to be in their arena. Wow. Smh. Go Spurs!
— Lil Wayne WEEZY F (@LilTunechi) May 31, 2012
Question is why was he denied, and the answer was he had no tickets. WHAT?!?!?!?!? Lil Wayne cannot get into an event with no ticket, what an outrage. That was sarcasm and I cannot believe that he forgot he is a regular person and that the NBA is a business. With the success of the Thunders season and them being in the playoffs, how could one person believe there would be great available seats no matter who you are. In some situation one has to be reasonable and him tweeting right after these events had happen like he was done wrong, was kind of childish. Sounded like a little kid that could not get the toy he wanted for Christmas. Business is business and Lil Wayne being at the Thunder game does not bring in business, the NBA players bring in business. It looks like some people just have to brought back into reality.

The first billion is a helluva lot harder RT @Drake: The first million is the hardest.
— T. Boone Pickens (@boonepickens) May 31, 2012
Seems now a days making a million should not be a goal one should have and should not brag about, the goal should be a billion. Seems reasonable and logically to have the goal not reached by many.

After looking at the video it brought to mind two things, 1) you can not judge a book by it cover and 2) If one focus on their selves they can overcome any obstacle.
in today society it is easy for people to judge another person without getting to know them and one might say that it is human nature to do this. But is it really human nature or is it that the media programs our minds to think a certain way. Most people say things or do things with out thinking bout how it will affect another person. They say words are harmless vocal tool, but at times it can be one of the most deadliest weapons. Some words can kill a person mentally and at times destroy their will to live.
With that said, looking at this video and how this girl was humiliated publicly, which seems the creator wanted to entertain and poke fun at this girl. Even though it was not immanently, she proved that planned had backed fired by not letting the video get to her and overcoming all odds.
This video should be a motivational tool for anyone that might not have the highest self esteem or at the time does not see a positive out look in life. With a dedicated mind frame, anyone can accomplish anything they set their mind to. I do not want to get too religious but the bible says you reap what you sow, meaning whatever work you put into the world, expect it in return. So hard work does pay off if you put the effort into it.

First off let me say that Nas is my favorite rapper of all time. I always appreciate his mind set and the way he delivers a track. In my opinion he touches subjects other rappers are scared to and through out the years has been in his own category in the hip hop domain.
Now listening to the tracks "Daughters", Nas touches on a subject most fathers go through. Even though I am not a father myself, but I have female relative below my age, when one knows how they have treated woman, one thinks bout the concept you reap what you sow. With that said I can just imagine having a daughter with that in the back of your mind.This track touches on those emotions and is something that has not been spoke on, but is reality in many guy's head. Holding a baby girl and depending on your situation with the babymama, at times can trigger flashbacks of ones behaviors towards the female breed. Most the times it makes one over protective and makes one very judgmental towards any guy that comes close to that female relative. Actually one cannot only speak on those female relative who are younger, because if you're a son and watch your mother dating, one might have the same mentality to protect their vulnerability. Maybe it is not right to think of the female counterparts as weak, but the thoughts of how a couple words that we have used to manipulate ones mind has took in affect, at the time is the first thing that processes.
Nas in the past has wrote a song about his daughter, which in my opinion was one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard, "Me and You" off his double album "Street Disciple".It was something that a daughter could be proud of that their father wrote about them. Even though the song "Daughter" was a subject never touched and could benefit a lot of father's ears, did Nas take into consideration his daughter's feelings. How this song would effect her, as these lyrics are coming out her own fathers mouth and in public. By now the whole world knows about her incident, but the fact that Destiny is 17 years old, most teenage girls deep down still long for the approval and love of their father. Question is does this song display that love and affection she needs or is this like a spanking in front of the world's eye view.
I don't agree with Carmen, because I am sure she has done her damage too. I have not read her book, but just the information I do know could bring shame to a child to know their parents business and the fact it is public is even worst. So this is something she should take into consideration as well.
The song in my opinion is a beautiful song, but the song is at the expense of his daughter. At the end of the day Nas gave the world another classic, but he has to re comfort his daughter and let her know that he meant no harm by his words.

Even though it is not well known, we at Quarantine Radio were the first ones to conduct an interview with Asia Monroe which took place 1/1712.Our establishment try to reward people that we see that have a hustle and drive for success, and that was seen in Asia when I first contacted her for an interview. By doing this, we made a rookie mistake and did not do a deep investigation of the person we were bout to interview. All I knew is she was a up and coming model trying to make a name for herself, and a hour before the show she surprised me by revealing to me that she was a transexual, which was a total shocker. I try not to judge people so I still proceeded with the interview. During the interview when my partner found out her situation he was highly upset and said somethings which our listening base found funny, but being the person that I am, after Ms Monroe disconnected from the radio show, I tried to make sure that this person was alright and that no comments were offensive towards them.
Like all of the guest that come on my show I try to keep a constant communication with them, after awhile this person eventually told me that they lied about being a transexual which was puzzling to me. While wondering why would anyone lie about something like that, a few weeks later she texted me telling me that some photos had leaked from her phone onto the net, then another week later another story had "leaked" about her. I started becoming very suspicious of what was really going on. Bout a day later someone had informed me someone was talking about listening to our show with her, which happen to be one of the websites that was posting these stories. After the show leaked she then again was telling people she was a transexual again. By this point I was high confused on what to believe any more, few seconds later someone brought to my attention a girl was claiming that the pictures being posted were hers and that Asia was a fake. When I question Asia about this she was highly upset that I would accuse her of being a fake. After following the other girl on twitter and Facebook she proceeded to block me on those social networks and said I was not being supportive. With the truth finally coming out I felt it was my responsibility to apologize for everything that took place.
I am honestly sorry that this poor girl Karin had to go through this whole thing. It really makes me wonder why someone would go through all the trouble of pretending to be someone else and at the same time ruin that person reputation. We have recently taken down the young lady picture from the interview segment and really would like to apologize for the part we took in this scandal. Like I said before it was a rookie mistake and we take full responsibility for not getting more information about the person to make sure they were who they said they were.
We at Quarantine Radio would like to wish Karin luck in her future venture and hope this whole situation does not damage any opportunities that might become available to her.

Alasia Ballard who comes from Marietta, Georgia USA was among the 32 models vying for 1 spot in Tyra Banks' America's Next Top Model (ANTM) Cycle 14 which first aired March 10, 2010 on The CW network. (ANTM) is aired in over 37 different countries.
Alasia recently attended Miss Southern Africa beauty pageant at Stratford Old town Hall as one of the celebrity judges. She was currently in the UK representing Positive Runway: Global Catwalk as their American advocate.
Positive Runway: Global Catwalk to Stop the Spread, is a voluntary global HIV/AIDS response campaign that tours the world working with beauty queens, models, fashion designers and celebrities from fashion, film, music, television, sport and other arts as effective advocates for the young generation in the fight against the spread of HIV/AIDS and to sensitise the public against other scourges affecting today’s young generation such as child trafficking, sexual responsibility, drugs, substance abuse, violence, peer pressure etc. Founded by Ms. Justina Mutare.

Alasia Ballard is scheduled to attend the Pre-Grammy Awards and Grammy Awards show in Los Angeles, California in early February also representing Positive Runway: Global Catwalk to Stop the Spread.
At the Start of the show Mya calls into #QuarantineRadio to talk about the Marathon she was preparing for
I chose the name "Lex La Rue" after my best friend Kathy Pegram said that people at her office called her "Kat the Seductress, Dutchess, La Rue" and that I should go by the name "Lex La Rue"... I loved the name, "La Rue" even though I didn't care for the meaning which translates to "The Streets" in French. I later changed my mind when I told my Mother about my rapping career and my new name. My Mother told me that her favorite singer Michael McDonald had a song called "Taken it to the streets" and that Lex La Rue would take her music and message to the streets! I loved the idea and new name and took my music straight to the NC Music Factory where I recorded my first song ever with producer Krazy Figz in September of 2011. The song was called "Fully Laced", and the second single written by Cash P (who is my rap mentor) called "Saturday Love" (a remake of the same titled song). Currently I’m working on my Mixtape which should be ready in january 2012. You can hear one of the songs from the mixtape on reverbnation called “I’ma Floss”. “I’ma floss” shows a harder side of rapping and with the three songs created shows my versatility. While I'm not in the studio writing and creating hot music for the streets, you can find me modeling, pursuing my career as an actress or working on a clothing line called Vintage Dreamz.
