Cardi B

Album Review

Fiesta 4/19/18

I am sure I am not the only one that thought Cardi B would be a one hit wonder! We always loved her for her out going and crazy personality but we would soon to fin out that she is way more than that. Over the last couple of months we have truly seen Cardi transform and grow into the “Trap Selena” a true legend.

After dropping this album Cardi shortly after Cardi B announces that she is pregnant with a Baby B and Off Set( a member of the rap group Migos) is the baby daddy. Rewinding a couple weeks back, Off Set was allegedly caught cheating TWICE. The fact that she had pressure of producing new music, pregnant, rumors of her baby father, and the media constantly judging her. I’m going to say she did beyond an amazing job.

This may be my personal opinion but I truly believe she made this album for ALL MY BOSS BITCHES and INDEPENDENT Women out here grinding. She literally including Kehlani and SZA on this album and if you listen to their music that proves my point on what kind of album this is. I may sound bias but I literally love the whole album (every song  but one) and it will defiantly be in rotation this summer. With that being said I’m going to get right into it and start with the album from start to finish!

 

Get Up 10

Soon as I heard this song I instantly thought of the song  “Dreams and Nightmares” by Meek Mill . It gave me that raw and hard vibe, it gave me ambition! I honestly thought she was gone drop / switch to a more up tempo beat mid song how Meek did but it never happened which was find because the whole song still went hard. You really have to remember in life it is always going to be down falls be that is the perfect opportunity to come back 10x harder and stronger.

Drip (ft. Migos)

I hate how this song is already mainstream and the radio stations are playing out but that’s what happens when you have a banger on your hands! She featured her boo and soon to be brother in-laws in this song so you know it automatically bangs because the Migos can do no wrong. I haven’t been to the club lately but I can definitely see this being a club hit if it is already not.

Bickenhead

This is the “BUT ONE” lol real simple, I don’t like this one because she mentions, “pop that pussy in church”. I’m not trying to troll or be negative just personally that’s too much for me.

Be Careful

Yes I love sweet and sensitive Cardi ! Us as females we love to talk shit but are feelings are still delicate when it comes to being in love especially if we really love you. With that being said; to my fellas if you have a good girl please do not miss that up. Because “Karma for you is who you end up with”.

Best Life (ft. Chance the Rapper)

With every year comes new trends and new phrases to say. In 2018 we’ve been hearing and making it a goal/responsibility to “Live our best life”. I like this song not only because I like Chance but because when you put Chance in the mix you already know it is going to be an uplifting song. If you are the kind of person that needs a pick me up song on the way to work, this is definitely one for the road.

I like It (Cardi B, Bad Bunny & J Balvin)

This is my top 5 favorite I was for sure served Trap Selena vibes. I did not Bad Bunny and I barely know what he is saying but I love it! This song is so catchy and you cant help but dance when you hear it.

Ring (ft. Kehlani)

“I know he see me calling him”

*20 calls later

Naw but forreal we don’t care how mad we get or how bad the argument was, we still want yall to call and pick up the phone as petty as it sounds. When calls and txt stop being replied too it just feels to real that the relationship is over. So fellas keep that in mind, Yes you still need to call.

Money Bag

Tis the season to get a bag aka every day all day all year round. If you not in you bag with everything you do then what are you doing? Need some inspiration Listen to this one.

She Bad (Cardi B & YG)

Thru Your Phone

I really hate that she did not mention the girl that was signing on this song because her verse is actually my favorite part! I am not scared to admit but I am guilty for going through a couple of phones in my past but who cares we all do it even if you admit it or not I know you do booboo. I love this song because it venerable and it stating facts; that if we go thru that phone and see something we don’t like you are definitely going to feel the raff.

I Do (ft. SZA)

I live for SZA and I live for CTRL the FUTURE IS FEMALE and if you don’t know now you know. We need yall to understand we gone do what we want and how we want and I DONT WANT TO HEAR ANY DOUBLE STANDARDS. If a female is already doing A-Z for herself it is nothing you can really tell her.

ItsFiestaTeaV “One Take” SXSW Edition

For those who do not know SXSW is one of the biggest music events in Texas held in Austin, Texas. People come from all over the world to participate, even if it’s just to check out new talent or to showcase their own talent. This was not my first year at SXSW but this year I made my presence known. My first year I had no clue what I was doing I was literally just a  pedestrian walking up and down back and forth on 6th Street.

One Take

This year I wanted to actually participate, so I decided to give upcoming artist the opportunity to shed some light through my platform. All in “One Take” on sight I let them tell a little bit about theirselves. I also got to speak with some SXSW party goers! I wish I could’ve interviewed way more people but enjoy what I have !

 

1a.m Bounce/ Live

 1a.m Bounce & Live is two of the craziest showcases I have been to! This showcase was hosted by YesJulz/ 1a.m Radio. I love the fact that this platform gives people the opportunity to showcase their talent with our having to go through major record labels. I personally myself got to hear a lot of people I have never even heard of before and now I love ! Check out this recap video & SN: she will be in Dallas which is my hometown so if you’re from Dallas be sure to come out!

Women’s History Month Luncheon

DeDe’s Women’s History Month Luncheon

Earlier this month I had the chance of attending DeDe’s Women’s luncheon. DeDe McGuire is one of the biggest radio personalities in Dallas, Texas. She has done so much for the city that her coordinating this luncheon for women was no surprise.

The luncheon held so many beautiful and  powerful women that it was nothing but vibrant energy flowing through the room one could feel it on their skin causing goosebumps. All the ladies were so different and successful in their own way. Women from Pastor Sarah Jakes Roberts,  The Mavericks Office DJ “Dj Poizen Ivy, To the most creditable lawyer in Dallas “Amy Witherite” and of course many more.

The menu choice was nothing extraordinary but just right for this occasion & happen to be some of my favorite foods. We started with an ice berg salad topped with blue cheese crumbles, bacon, red onions, & ranch which happens to be my favorite combo. Then we had a chicken breast on top of mash potatoes and mini carrot sticks topped with a lemon butter gravy. Of course the best was for last which was dessert, for dessert bread pudding was served and when I say it was so good, I think about it till this day!

A couple of weeks before the luncheon I was introduced to some of Sarah Jakes Roberts YouTube videos so I was more than ecstatic to be blessed her words in person. She is such an inspiration and her words are so moving she brings me to tears every time!

I can not wait until next year because I will definitely be in attendance!

ItsFiestaTeav Production: The Giving Back Edition

This project was very near and dear to my heart because I love helping other people! I love doing things for my family and friends and to do something for those in need is just more rewarding and makes me happy. Last year I did a project called Code Red , which was nothing compared to this years production!

This year I partnered with Austin Street Homeless Shelter located in my home city Dallas, Tx. The goal was to make between 200-300 care-packages and I exceeded that goal and was able to make over 300 care-packages. I asked for family and friends to donate snacks and bottles of water, for those who were not able to meet me or just wanted to donate money, I set up a GoFund Me that received $300!

The video of production day captures a little of how the day went. If you take a look at Code Red, it was no where as close as being big as The Giving Back Edition. Which excites me because I know next years production is going to be way bigger.

Sonny Digital

The Rolling Grams Tour

I’ve been to a Sonny Digital concert before when Sonny was opening for Gucci Mane in Dallas this past summer. During this time he was performing hits that he produced, which one can imagine that was a lot of songs. This go around Sonny was set to perform his hit songs that he produced & rapped on. I personally never knew Sonny Digital had this rapping talent but doing the interview he expressed that, “he has been doing this way before producing .” That’s why I feel this interview is so important because I know a lot of people are   not knowledgeable of this. Lucky for me I follow Sonny on twitter so I’ve been able to follow him and his new emerging music over the past couple of months. The Dallas concert was held at The House of Blues at one of there nice size venues, not too big not too small, just the right size to have personable interactions with fans.

During the interview we discussed: How easy Producing came to him, How support in the industry basically sucks, The beat is the foundation of a song, & much more. If you listen to the end Sonny releases the date for his upcoming project!

(This interview is Audio only Ft cool pics)

 

Sonny Digital was so opening & chill that it made the interview go so smooth. His confidence and persona makes me so eager to see what he has in store for us in 2018. As he says in the interview he , “is going to be around forever.” I truly believe that because at such a young age he has so much credibility. We’ve seen what he is capable of and just from this one conversation with him I know it’s more to come.

Dallas Observer Music Awards

I am so humble that I got to experience and be apart of the Dallas Observer Music Awards(DOMA)  production this years . It was truly an experience, I got to meet and listen to so many different artist it was amazing and some how eye opening.

Saturday / The Showcase

DOMA got over 100 of Artist, Musicians, & Djs to perform in 1 of the 6 venues Dallas Observer  provided. On Saturday all the artists performed and put on a showcase for that particular venue to which they was assigned . I stage managed at the venue Club Da Da where musicians ands bands like Pearl Earl, Sudie, T.Y.E, Gary Owen, & many more put on a show! The venue I was at had so much talent I can only imagine what was going down at the other venues! I had time to slip into Off The Record and caught Dj Mike B on set and he was jamming ! He made OTR a whole vibe! My day started from 1 pm to 2 a.m so you can imagine when the last set was over , I was over ! It was a long and beautiful day. I admire everyone that came out and showed support.

(It was such a busy day I have no pictures)

Tuesday (The Ceremony)

The Ceremony was held at Canton Hall sister to The Bomb Factory. The Ceremony was held so that the Dallas community could come out and see some of our best artist get  recognize. Throughout the Ceremony  different artists & bands performed, the performances that caught my eye was M3CCA, Medicine Man Revival  & 88Killa. Whom all performed covers of popular Dallas Musician.
