Season fries known as “Shake Shake” have been popular in Asia for years . They debut in Hong Kong in 2005 and spread into other countries. The fries premiered in the U.S at Sacremento & St Louis McDonalds and now they are here in Philly. President & Region/Owner of Operations John Durante of Greater Philadelphia said “ Our customers love our classic French Fries , so we are so excited to offer them the option to fully customize this classic with the seasoning of their choice.” There are three seasonings: Garlic Parmesan, Spicy Buffalo and Zesty Ranch .

On August 24,2014 McDonalds celebrated their exclusive “ShakinPhilly” launch at the North Shore Beach Club. I attended the super-sized flavored DayLoad event and I had a great time. It was bursting with McDonald's lovers, North Shore Beach club members and Movers & Shakers. DJ Rich Kid & DJ Quiana Paris kept the party going with hot music and pumped up remixes. Everyone was smiling, dancing, swimming, posing for the McDonald's photo booth and having a ball bar or pool side . The “Shaking Flavor Fries” were definitely the star of ShakinPhilly. Shakers were shaking bags of fries and lovin it. So if you’re a Garlic Parmesan, Spicy Buffalo, or Zesty Ranch lover, there is definitely a seasoning for you. Senior Account Executive Alicia Gentile coordinated an awesome event. Jen Wallington, Yinka Adedji, and the entire McDonald's Philly crew were super friendly and definitely made sure everyone was smiling and enjoying themselves. The ShakinPhilly launch was a fantastic way to shake up what’s new and hot at McDonalds.

In May of 2012 Tyrese Gibson announced that Ginuwine, Tank, and himself were in the studio working on their first official "T.G.T" album. In September of 2012 these three kings signed their deal with Atlantic Records and were ready to reign as "The R&B Avengers". The first single " Sex Never Felt Better" proved that they were bringing the heat and pure R&B realness. Tyrese, Ginuwine, and Tank have each dominated and succeeded in their solo careers but together they've created a victorious master-group.
T.G.T hit the road for their first tour last summer. On August 20,2013 T.G.T released their "Three Kings" album world-wide. "Three Kings" debut at No.1 on the R&B/Hip Hop Album Charts. "Three Kings" is more than a classic and a must have . Its a R&B and soul-packed piece of epic masterwork. It has officially been a year since their royal release . Congratulations to T.G.T may God continue to let your visions prosper. If you are reading this and you don't have this album , go get it right now (here) and remember to #TGTLife.
In 2002 Drumline directed by Charles Stone III got us all off our feet with their ATL flavored sounds of the saxaphone , drums, and trumpets. The story of a recent graduate "Devon" played by Nick Cannon and his challenge to not only succeed as a college student but as a new member of the marching band , and his crush on the beautiful Lailah played by Zoe Saldana was an immediate favorite. Well 12 years later Nick Cannon along with Leanord Roberts from the original Drumline with a few new faces are back for the VH1 original movie "Drumline : A New Beat". The new film is also starring singer/actress Letoya Luckett, Jasmine Burke , Alexander Shipp, Lisa Arrindell Anderson, Rome Flynn, Jackie Goldstone and many others. This new film is directed by Billie Woodruff. Watch the trailer below and don't forget to #DRUMLINE on Twitter.

"Somewhere I read of the freedom of assembly. Somewhere I read of the freedom of speech. Somewhere I read of the freedom of press. Somewhere I read that the greatness of America is the right to protest for rights. And so just as I said, we aren't going to let dogs or water hoses turn us around. We aren't going to let any injunction turn us around. We are going on" - Dr.Martin Luther King Jr .The murder of eighteen year old Michael Brown has ignited Ferguson, Missouri to protest against this unjust, cruel, and despicable death of a teenager. Numerous reports have been released about this case . Its absolutely disgusting how the protesters are being treated. The rubber bullets, tear gas in residential neighborhoods, and threats to shoot reporters whom are trying to cover what's going on in Ferguson despite media being asked to leave. The violence between police and protesters is outrageous and sickening. Bloggers, citizens of Ferguson, and people whom have traveled to the area to record footage on their phone, take pictures, and record video and audio are continuing to make the world aware of this foul and horrific injustice. It is more than heart breaking , more than stomach turning to see the images and video of people being shot down or fired on in city in the United States in 2014. What is being done? When will this end? So many questions currently fill our heads. Michael Brown was headed to college and had a "life" his life was important as well as the many other people whom have been unjustly murdered by police. Dr.Martin Luther King said in his "A Time To Break Silence" speech that "A time comes when silence is betrayal". At this time people are speaking up and are not being silent. People from all over the world are watching and some are silently protesting in their cities and sharing it on the internet. Celebrities such as John Legend, Tyrese Gibson, Jadakiss, Talib Kweli, Keri Hilson, Larenz Tate and various others have all expressed their feelings about Michael Brown's death and the protests in Ferguson. J.Cole and his Dreamville members traveled to Ferguson , visited the area where Michael Brown was gunned down and spoke to Captain Ron Johnson about what is taking place in Ferguson. To all the reporters and bloggers whom are doing everything possible to share this news , thank you. To everyone whom is speaking out on this and not just letting this atrocity be swept under the rug, thank you. The multiple accounts of attacks and wrongful deaths by police is ridiculous and its time something is done about it. Remember the words Dr.Martin Luther King Jr, spoke. Remember that peace, justice, and love is needed in this world and we all must live that way in order for this world to be better. My condolences go out to Michael Brown's family and to any other family whom have lost someone to this act of violence. I am praying for Ferguson and I ask you to pray as well. There are good police that have done good things and have followed the rules of their job , don't judge them all together. In the words of Dr.Martin Luther King Jr "now its time to make justice a reality for all God's children".
