Eminem – The Marshall Mathers LP 2
The Marshall Mathers LP 2. It took listening to this album to remind myself how long Eminem has really been around. With having been in the game for at least twenty years, millions of albums sold, and arguably being the most recognizable rapper of our time, the real Slim Shady has stood against the test of time and no album shows that any better than The Marshall Mathers LP 2.
RNazaire.com | The Solution
Good Morning, Good Afternoon. I’m here today to alleviate the Monday Blues for you viewers out there while at the same time, giving you an update on things from my end. As I mention in the video, special shout-outs are in order for Ink Fat’s own Fatty J, as well as Smooth McGroove, whose music was featured in this video.
RNazaire.com – Five Months Later, Pt. III [The Return]
Good Morning, Good Afternoon. Hopefully things have been well on your end. As for me, it’s been far too long, but I am extremely pleased to announce that RNazaire.com is officially back and better than ever..! A lot can – and has – happened within the last five months…so much so that I decided to put to kick things off by releasing a video talking about this featuring yours truly: RNazaire.
RNazaire.com – What It’s All About
Good Morning, Good Afternoon. Five months. It’s been five [long] months since the last major update on RNazaire.com and between then and now, I took the time to map out many things that needed to be addressed. With that said, I am pleased to announce not only the official relaunch of the site, but also the premiere video starring yours truly on Friday, November 1st.
Covering previous entries as well as featuring newer additions to the RNazaire.com are some of the big things to expect to kick off the new month so stay posted for updates. For those who have been along for the ride, I appreciate your patience. For those that are a bit new to things, welcome and keep your eyes open for very, very good things to come.
RNazaire – Playing With Time
Good Morning, Good Afternoon. There’s no real easy way to go about with this update so I was hoping that the title would make things easier…Here it goes…Let me start off by saying that this site, RNazaire.com, has been nothing short of a welcome challenge that I’ve been waiting to take on for a very, very long time. If it wasn’t obvious, a profession in writing is a long term goal/dream of mine, but I also realize that there are still day-to-day things that I need to focus on in the meantime.
A New Age of Heroes
I hope you enjoyed last week’s Top Billing: Superman II because I put together a new addition for the recent release of the Man of Steel. I feel as though it would only be right to tell you to hold off on reading the review until you watch the film for yourself. In case you would like to hear more about the title without spoilers, let’s just say that this film really did it for me. Though with a cast, director, score, and production like that, it would be very hard to drop the ball on this one.
Back to Basics
Good Morning, Good Afternoon. As far as site related updates are concerned, a lot of big steps were made that went above and beyond routine maintenance. It was a long time coming, but I finally got around to making navigating the site more convenient to you, the readers. While I still have work to do when it comes to “de-Engrishing” some of my posts, I’m looking forward to taking one step at a time with this project. With that aside, let’s get onto this week’s newest addition.
Pride & Prejudice
Good Morning, Good Afternoon. It has been some time since I put together an update for this website and between then and now, a lot of moves have been made towards taking this project to the next level. Though when I say a lot, I’m mainly referring to the fact that my business cards finally came in. I’m already down to my last handful so if you have one, consider yourself special.
Sky’s the Limit
Hello again. This week’s update pays tribute to the late great: The Notorious B.I.G. With Top Billing: The Notorious B.I.G. covering his debut studio album: Ready to Die, I couldn’t think of a better way to commemorate Mr. Wallace on his birthday.
A little history behind this: I’ve come to notice that the majority of people know more about the day Biggie died as opposed to the day he was born? Kind of a paradox, don’t you think? I also prefer focusing on May 21st as opposed to March 9th seeing how it kind of overshadows my birthday and all. Nothing personal…
Moving Along, Pt. III
You know Nathaniel Hawthorne said it best with, “Easy reading is damn hard writing.” I had two additions in mind when it came to this week’s update: Top Billing: Kingdom Come, and an entry titled “Take Care.” Though two additions may not seem like a lot on the big scale of things, I found it pretty challenging to put things together this time around. Let’s just say it’s been a long week…for almost three months…
What. A. Week. Just a quick update on what could’ve been: I was working on a Top Billing: Nas project for the site with a show that took place this weekend being the final piece of the puzzle. As things turned out, I got a lot more from that show than expected. So much so that I decided to compile a project that will take it to the next level. The release of this project will be disclosed at a later time but trust me, it’ll be well worth the time.
More times often than not, Life has a very interesting way of coming together. When thinking of how to start things off for this month, I was kind of at a standstill. I have special certain Album Reviews lined up this month, so I didn’t want to overdo it when it comes to Top Billing.
And as far as features go, there are ones that just make more sense to be released at a later date. With new additions to the Image Galleries being out of the picture – no pun intended – I decided to look at what the month of May means as a whole and given the options, I found one that really stuck out: Haitian Heritage Month.
Moving Along, Pt. II
This past April has been one to remember. For one, I found myself actually looking forward to stepping up to the challenges that have presented themselves. I have also come to embrace this as more than ‘just a website,’ and I am really impressed at the steps that have been taken towards improving things for the better. With that said, I have thought long and hard about some decisions that deal with RNazaire.com.
Lost in Paradise
I’m not too sure where to start on this one…Between the last update and now, I’ve made a couple of changes here and there with the most notable one being the ‘Entries’ section. Formerly ‘RICKonBLOG,’ I did some work to make the changes from last year’s way of doing things that more obvious.
From there, this month has put a lot of things on my to-do list. I never looked at this as a way to vent or anything, but the entry I put together was written to shed light on some recent events: “Balance.” Last but not least, I’m pleased to announce the namesake of this update which is newest addition to the Top Billing library: Top Billing – Rihanna. In the same vein of what was done with Tyler, the Creator, I put together a piece on Ms. Fenty and reviewed two of her most recent albums: Talk That Talk (2011) and Unapologetic (2012).
“Back to Business”
New month, New Season, New everything. Going off of the title, its Back to Business. Vacation, for what its worth, was very good. It was great to see familiar faces, and it was even better to get insight on a lot of things. The majority of upcoming entries will show that and the most obvious example is through the newest addition to the Image Gallery, “Away From It All.”
Hello again. The hardest part about putting this entry together was probably the title. I wanted to reference entries that I put out around this time last year but then I realized that the last entry of 2012 was ‘Not For Play.’ Speaking of that, I think this year’s follow-up was done really well. For those interested, I posted a feature titled “Swag, Yolo, and the Self–Destructive Nature of Today’s Youth” that’s a pretty interesting read if I may say so myself.
”Not For Play, Pt. II”
“Who ranks as the Highest? One who has no desire at all, not even for enlightenment. One who has no attachments, One who is free from doubt. One who has gone beyond that which you can understand.”
Buon Giorno again. For the past couple of days, I was trying to figure out which was the best way to go about updating on and around my birthday. While I didn’t want to do a complete blowout like I did with the original Not For Play, I still wanted to do something that would really stand out.
Life is Goot
One of the first things I did when I came home was shut off my alarms. They range everyday, anywhere from 5am to 8am depending on what is going on, but I didn’t even have to worry about that. Things like work, the grind, and playing with time haven’t even crossed my mind.
The closest thing to ‘work’ I’ve done lately has been me playing Mr. Bigshot: Making calls, meeting up with people, and all of that tom-foolery. So far, it’s been pretty good and part of me wishes it could be like this forever, but its true when they say that all good things must come to an end.
The weeks and months leading up to this vacation have been interesting to say the least. When it came down to the wire, it seemed like something out of the blue came again and again again for more “story of my life” moments I get all too often but through it all I made it, and we’re here.
Rest, Relaxation, and The Return of the Tablet
After what seemed to be the one of the longest weeks in recent memory, I’m glad to say that this weekend was very much appreciated and well spent. And by well spent, I mean I finally caught up on a lot of the sleep I missed out on earlier in the week. That and I was able to bring my tablet back into commission which is just in time for (and a perfect chance to bring up) my flight out home this week.
One Year Later
Buon Giorno. Whether you are new to the site, or all too familiar with this project, consider this a re-introduction to the one formerly known as “RICKisBOSS”.
Needless to say, that was a bit rude, but not as rude as not getting everyone on the same page. While there is content lined up for you the reader to view at your leisure, I definitely recommend the featured “Why We Fall” and the considerably less lengthy “End of an Era” to give you an idea of what is going on.
