Mary J Blige Talks New Kanye Record, The LOX with Flex

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

Mary J Blige recently sat down with Flex for one of his in-depth #WeGotAStoryToTell interviews and she spoke on a few notable subjects, including the new record she has with Kanye West (Flex says it’s super hard), the history of the “Who Shot Ya” beat and how she personally brought the LOX demo tape to Puff. Beyond that, she speaks very candidly about her recent divorce, LA Reid coming to Schlobohm projects in Yonkers to try and get her to sign a deal, her still living there when “You Remind Me” popped off, attending parties at iconic Yonkers Hip-Hop institution School 12, her relationship with Faith during the Bad Boy era and much more.

Take a Tour of Yonkers with Jadakiss

Tuesday, November 10th, 2015

In the latest episode of Complex’s “The Neighborhood,” Jadakiss takes us on a tour of some of his early haunts in my hometown, the Home of the Brave, Yonkers, New York. He shows us the first building he lived in on Pier Street which is right off the main strip of Riverdale Avenue and a few blocks from the building where I grew up.

Then he takes us to his old grade school and walks us through the Woodworth/Glenwood area where he later moved and started hustling. Those streets, including Ravine and Warburton are the blocks that inspired all of those legendary bars we all love. Finally he hits up the barbershop for a cut, although I don’t know why they didn’t go see the big homie Norm on South Broadway, or swing by 354 or Juices 4 Life for that matter.

The new album, Top 5 Dead or Alive is out on November 20th.

Video: Mary J. Blige Opens Center for Women in Yonkers

Friday, October 30th, 2009

I love Mary for this. This is something that will directly impact the community that we both grew up in. The Mary J. Blige Center For Women is located @ 489 South Broadway in Yonkers, between Valentine Lane and St. Andrews Place, which is about 2 blocks from that sign you see at the top of this site, and about 3 blocks from the building I grew up in.

The center came about through a partnerhip between Mary and Steve Stoute’s new foundation (FFAWN),the Westchester Jewish Community Services and Gucci (the design house, not Mane). According to the FFAWN website:

…the new center will serve as a “one-stop shop” for women, making resources more accessible and more customized than they are now and allowing women it serves to gain access to services from which they would not otherwise benefit. The serves offered directly at the Center will initially fall primarily into three categories: education, parenting skills, and career training.

Mary and Stoute plan on opening several more centers in communities across the globe.

Props to Boss Lady for the coverage of this. I know she had to pass on the Better Recognize Showcase because she had to be at this early the next day, and I completly understand. Sometimes there’s more to the news than entertainment.
