Lyrics Of The Day

Mahogany | Rakim (Eric B & Rakim)

Me and Eric B was coolin' at the Paladium
Seen an all-world cover girl, I said "Hey lady I'm
Sorry if You're in a rush don't let me hold ya up
Or intervene or interrupt, but. . .
You got the look I wanna get to know ya better
I had to let her know but yo, I didn't sweat her
Cause if you would of seen what I was seeing
Almost looked Korean, but European.
When she spoke, her accent was self explanatory
Even her body language told the story
Her name was Mahogony twin's name was Ebony
I said "My name is Ra and this is Eric B"
Since the music was loud, I said "let's take a walk,
So we could talk and see New York.
Show time doesn't start until one o'clock
And once I entered your mind I wouldn't want stop
Caress ya thoughts till we was thinking the same
Calm ya nerves, massage ya brain
Each mic is a mineral, poetry's protein
Verse is a vitamin Affects like Codine
So tell me how you feel and I'll reveal
A pill that'll heal ya pain cause I'm real
She must of OD'd cause she couldn't resist
She spoke slowly when she told me this, she said
Over Me, She's going crazy
She rubbed me on my chest and called me Mr. Sexy
She said she'd have my kids and help me make my next G
Tell me I ain't finesse Mahogony . . .

LBJ + Furniture




















James will develop a furniture line with furniture company American Signature. His brand manager LRMR Marketing and his longtime girlfriend Savannah Brinson will also be part of the team. Brinson and James were high school sweethearts and she is the mother of his two children. Why LeBron James? While sneakers and apparel might be a natural brand tie-in for an athlete furniture is a bit of a stretch but American Signature is sold on both his popularity and reputation as someone who embodies certain wholesome values like teamwork and leadership. The collection will be launched this summer at Value City and American Signature stores and is American Signature's first license. No details on the products and design have been revealed.

I Got 5 On It

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The first U.S. clinical trials in more than two decades on the medical benefits of marijuana confirm pot is effective in reducing muscle spasms associated with multiple sclerosis and pain caused by certain neurological injuries or illnesses, according to a report issued Wednesday.

Igor Grant, a psychiatrist who directs the Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research at the University of California, San Diego, said five studies funded by the state involved volunteers who were randomly given real marijuana or placebos to determine if the herb provided relief not seen from traditional medicines.

“There is good evidence now that cannabinoids may be either an adjunct or a first-line treatment,” Grant said at a news conference where he presented the findings.

The California Legislature established the research center in 2000 to examine whether the therapeutic claims of medical marijuana advocates could withstand scientific scrutiny. In 1996, state voters became the first in the nation to pass a law approving pot use for medical purposes.Thirteen other states have followed suit, but California is the only one so far to sponsor medical marijuana research. After 10 years and nearly $9 million, the Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research is preparing to wrap up its work next year.

Along with the studies on muscle spasms and pain associated with spinal cord injuries and AIDS, the center also has funded research on how marijuana affects sleep and driving, limb pain due to diabetes, and whether inhaling vaporized cannabis is as effective as smoking it. A laboratory study supported by the center examined if pot could be helpful in treating migraine headaches and facial pain. In that study, rats given a cannabis-like drug exhibited reduced activity of nerve cells that transmit pain.

I don't even smoke, but now can we legalize it!!!

Death Row Dinner

I know at some point in your life you have thought about this. If you were on Death Row and could only have one more meal before being executed... What would it be? James Reynolds did a series of photographs documenting former Death Row prisoners' requests for their last meal before execution.

































I would definitely have to have fried chicken, candied yams, collard greens with turkey meat, my moms homemade pasta salad and biscuits and a slice of my dad's homemade chocolate cake! And wash it down with a Pineapple Crush soda. Then I could go peacefully...
