NEW MUSIC: @JOETHOMAS-DILEMMA



BRAND NEW music from rnb singer, Joe Thomas, called: Dilemma. I'm so happy and excited for this album. Check out the new single and pre-order the album: Bridges.

NEW MUSIC: @OFFICIAL_JE-HOPE



If you came up in the '90s and listened to R&B, there was one debate that never died: Dru Hill vs. 112 vs. Jagged Edge.
And while that dissension still leaves the VIBE office divided, only one of the three legendary troupes that soundtracked the late '90s and early 2000s—J.E.—is making its return nearly two decades after its arrival on the music scene.
The Atlanta quartet—brothers Brandon and Brian Casey, Kyle Norman and Richard Wingo—earned a beloved spot in modern R&B with soulful ballads like 1998’s “I Gotta Be” and the perennial wedding favorite, 2000’s “Let’s Get Married.” Now, three years after its last studio release The Remedy, Jagged Edge debuts its single “Hope” just in time for June’s Black Music Month.
Co-produced by Bryan-Michael Cox, “Hope” serves as the lead in to the group’s upcoming J.E. Heartbreak Too album (slated for a fall 2014 release) and new label deal, which finds the men reunited with longtime collaborator Jermaine Dupri. Jagged Edge spoke to VIBE about the uplifting track and embarking on its next chapter. —Sowmya Krishnamurthy (via Vibe.com)

[MINISTRY] LOVE DOESN'T COME WITH UNTIL





1 CORINTHIANS 13:5,7-8
"Love....it keeps no records of wrongs. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails." (Amp)

What another marvelous day The Lord has given us to enjoy. Hello to all that are daily seeking fresh manna from heaven. Today the Holy Spirit has given me even more glorious insight to LOVE (Himself). How wonderful the Father is. Now let's take a moment to talk about LOVE...not man's version of love (that is experienced fleshly) but LOVE ...TRUE LOVE..GOD'S LOVE (which is only experienced where you LIVE FOREVER...SPIRIT). We know that true love is spiritual..how? Because the bible tells us that God is Spirit. So attempting to experience true love in the flesh is what leads us to the "until!" And love is never "until" Love is a forever thing..why because it's spiritual!

Now let me help you understand this a little bit more. As you read this always remember that God is Love. (1 john 4:8)

In today's society love is looked at in the manner of emotions. Meaning as long as you make me happy, I love you. It's like as long as I'm emotionally okay..my love for you is never questioned, nor yours for me, but as soon as my emotions turn negative, or I'm unhappy, now there is an "until" that comes along with my love. Yet the scripture does not say that love is determined by our emotions. As a matter of fact emotion is not connected at all in the description of love anywhere in this chapter.



Now let's take Christopher and Robyn for example...I have people ask me, "how can you even think that Robyn would forgive Christopher for what he has done to her in the past?" or there is no way that Christopher will forgive Robyn for hanging with a guy that he doesn't like." Yet they don't have an understanding of how forgiveness and love are tied together. See LOVE IN IT'S PUREST FORM not only displays sacrifice, it also makes sure that it keeps no RECORDS OF WRONGS. Meaning that when you truly love someone you don't continually bring things of the past back up. When you forgive, you absolutely forget. Yes it's possible. We must remember why this is so. In Psalm 103:12 the word says "as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us." Understand what is being said here, our awesome Father in heaven is saying...I remember your sin no more, less I remember and have to judge you accordingly. See this is why REAL LOVE takes no records of wrongs..see it would be impossible to love unconditionally if we constantly have to be reminded of what someone did wrong.

Take Christopher Brown and Robyn Fenty. Everywhere they go, people are constantly reminded them of what was wrong. People have taken RECORD of the wrongs, and continually remind them of 2009, whatever happened in 2013, as a way to say they should not be together. Yet for them, they are operating in the latter verses stated here..they haven't given up hope, cause they know Love never fails. And I don't care what language you look never up in ..it still means NEVER. That tells me that no matter what love will always win. The power of Love, there is no match in this universe for it..you know what..cause the by it the universe was created. So the created thing can never trump the creator. Remember God is Love.

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, ENDURES all things. Understand that nothing that these two have endured to this point or beyond will LOVE not be able to conquer. That's every ill word, every reminder of what they have done wrong, said wrong, it does not matter...none of it matters..LOVE NEVER FAILS. I can't wait to see these two when the world finds out they are together again..not only that but when they let the world know they are married...or maybe even the day they reveal they are having their first child. So many people will be saved simply off the testimony of their love that was persevered by the Holy Spirit. When they see how God can change your heart, when they show how the word can transform your thinking. Or when they begin to speak to this generation about the good of God, and how He single handily changed them, gave them the words to speak to this generation that will lead them back to Himself. How he took to superstars and transformed their hearts and expanded their platform from simply being entertainers but being speakers of the gospel by the Holy Spirit.



Never underestimate God. He uses who He chooses. There is not one that He has called for His purpose that He could not equip to do the work. The same is for these two. His LOVE for this generation is to such a degree that before the foundation of the earth, He purposed Christopher Brown and Robyn Fenty to come together to lead a generation back to Him. And soon, we shall all witness the glory of The Lord.

So understand, love has no until...love is forever! Simply because love is spirit!

THE EXIT-@CHRISBROWN







It's been a long 9 months. I mean a long 9 months. It's funny how you think you are truly in control of your life, until you see it spiraling out of control, and you can't put your finger on where the spiral actually began. I mean it was just 15 months ago I was probably the happiest I have been for some time. On the verge of releasing my 6th studio album, hit single on the charts, rolling with the female icon of the world as my woman and then just as quickly as I was up, I was down again. Lies, and rumors cause a break up with my love, outburts on social media, "friends" to keep the space occupied in my life, disagreements with my mother, a stupid altercation in DC, a voluntary rehab stint where they begin to tell me that this shouldn't be voluntary and that I really need this time, and should consider staying in their, to being ordered to stay. A female who I continually to try to be a friend to, showing me her true motives of using my name simply for promotion, and growth in an industry that she doesn't even understand will chew her up and spit her out if she not careful. And is there even a reason to speak on the dudes..probably not. It's amazing how my thinking has changed from the time this process started to now...finishing up a 1yr sentence, spending the last 3 months in jail.

You know when this thing first started, back in 09 I would have quickly went to jail, so that she would never have to experience a trial, or be questioned as to what took place that night. I swear it was not to protect me at all, I simply didn't want anyone to look at my baby girl in a negative manner. I would die first. And today I realize I still feel the same. So now looking back at these past few months of my life...as I prepare to exit this place, I know now, this had to happen. (chuckles) It's funny she always says I won't listen..well when you on lockdown for 23hrs a day, it's funny how you find yourself doing nothing but listening..listening for the clank of keys at your cell, the fumbling of the sliding door to push your food tray in, the breathing of the person in the next cell, hell, your own breathing for that matter. It's crazy you know..a nigga was thinking he had this thing just where he wanted it. But life never goes as you plan it. Now I realize we better be grateful it doesn't. I had this grand plan where I was going to soar back to the top of the charts, have my lady by my side, keep all the friends I gathered around me, and live it up. It's not until now, that I realized that plan would have been settling. It was no way even close to what the Big Guy upstairs had planned for me.

Since I was a little kid, I would pray to God and ask Him to please make me into something. I told Him I wanted to do something great in the world. That I wanted to be somebody that my mother could be proud of. I wanted to have the baddest woman in the world as my wife. You know the type of woman that every man would envy me to have, and yet she had to have some brains, and yet be fun all at the same time. Heck I asked for a female version of myself. (smiling)...That's exactly what I got. And then when I seen her, I thought so little of myself that I couldn't even believe that she was for me. I think now that was a big part of our demise. But beyond her, I realize the things I was praying for...there was no way the devil was going to let all that happen without at least challenging it. Man for all the days in church and Sunday school I spent I realized I had no idea what I was going to be up against. Yet how could I when I really put my most important relationship on the back burner as the things I prayed for began to come to manifestation. How cocky was I to think that now that I had what I prayed for that I didn't need God to help me keep those things. Yet this time spent in jail, I understand wholeheartedly now that anything God gives, you need Him to maintain it.

Now that I'm about to exit out of this place, it's like a spiritual release as much as a physical release. I know that i will have to deal with everything that I didn't want to deal with while I was out. But I believe with all my heart now that it's time to cut my losses with certain people, and to let go of those who were never meant to go where God is leading me. Imagine how small I felt when The Lord said He called me to a generation? Me? Christopher Brown called to speak His word, by telling my testimony to bring people to Christ. It's just crazy to even think about. I mean I can step up on a stage and sing to millions, but I know without a shadow of a doubt to stand before that same crowd and speak of all that The Lord has done for me, I will definitely need His Spirit to do. Yet I get to do it with the woman He created to help me. The woman He gave a dowry that was fit just for me. I get to do this thing with her by my side.



You know it's so funny, because when we started to communicate again back while she was on tour and from the time I sent her the roses, I somehow believed that she was going to realize she had everything all wrong and she would just run back to me..but no..she so petty..lol. Naw seriously I know now it was all of God's doing. Man if she had given in, there is no way I would be walking in the clarity I have now. When The Lord revealed to me that He was humbling me from my personal life...my heart was in complete rebellion mode. I'm like Im the most humble person I know..lol. Yet The Lord is so merciful, and began to explain to me how He had humbled me from the fame right after the '09 situation when I almost lost it all, He let me know, I was never going to lose it all, yet I was humbled (the devil meant it for me to never have a career in this industry ever, but God said no). Yet I played this game with Rihanna. She knew that Kae was never someone that I truly loved, but I used her to take my "time" with truly committing to a relationship with Rihanna. I never told her this but it was because I was so scared that she would leave me again..and I could not even imagine going through the pain I went through in 09-10 again. So I was feeling my way around. I told her that because we were sleeping together that i would not sleep with Kae, but the waters became so muddy, that I myself didn't know what I was doing. I was so cocky that it didn't matter what I did, being seen giving Kae money, walking into the hotel with her, just nonesense. I was so caught up in public opinion that I decided to make a video hoping to depict my true feelings and somehow be able to walk away from Kae without the world thinking I was this big butthole, but in the meantime I messed up. I ended up making it sound like the two loves was equated to each other. Although the video showed two entirely different relationships, I said "is it possible to love two people" as if it was the same type of love. Little did I know that actually gave Kae all types of leverage to make our relationship look like more than it was. I swear the more I tried to explain that she was just a friend, or called her the homey, the more ppl kept calling her my ride or die. Yet in the meantime no one had any idea that I was still communicating with Robyn.

You know being locked up, I swear you hear news almost as quickly as being on social media. The news of Robyn flying behind Drake was probably the worst thing ever to endure..and to a point that i prayed asking The Lord to please remove her from my heart. I mean that was the ultimate slap in the face to me. I had the right to be angry...right? And I heard The Lord say, "No. To remove her from your heart would be to violate my word. My word that I spoke into the both of you, before you were ever placed into your mother's wombs. And I hold My word above My name." That statement left me in tears. I mean I thought I would die the first time I lost her, and after that and all I was going through in 2013, I just knew then there was no way I would make it out of here alive. I have been diagnosed as being Bi-Polar II, Insomniac, Stress Disorder, and now I'm being told no to removing this woman from my life, because surely was the cause of my downfall...right? And again The Lord answered No. He said understand the spiritual order of things My son. Remember that the man was not made for the woman's benefit...she was made for man's benefit, to help him. Then you know that means I have given her something (a dowry) that is fit for the one I created her to help. Eve had in her everything needed to help Adam to do all I purposed him to do. For you Christopher, Robyn was created to help you do the same. Just as the enemy came after Eve to bring dissension between the two...the same he did to you and Robyn. Yet I have spoken My word over the two of you...ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD FOR THOSE WHO LOVE THE LORD AND ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE. So what he attempted to do to make sure we never come together is the very thing that strengthens our bond. Because it's like the world vs us. Because no matter who side is taken, no one knows what happened so we are able to protect each other in a way.


You know people were calling for my baby's head because she wasn't showing up to my court dates once I was placed in jail...but what people don't know is I asked her not too. Man look, it was hard enough for a brother to walk in shackled knowing that not only would possible team breezy members be in there, but my mother as well, and they would see me like that...but my BIGGEST FAN, naw...a nigga would have broke down for real. Man ya'll think she so tough, listen..I know she would have cried like a baby every time they brought me in and when I would have to be taken back again...I would die, before I let her see that.

Hmph standing at this this gate waiting for my ride, one thing I have reconciled in my heart...that the only plan that is good for me, is the one that God set forth. I have lived this life 25yrs and realized that without His guidance downhill is where I will end up. As I see the black SUV drive up, I take one last look at prison (physically and spiritually), determining in my heart I will not be snared by the tactics of the enemy again, instead it's time to apply all that the Lord has taught me during this time. While in mid-thought the door flew open and there they were, my two favorite ladies in the world, my mother and my soon to be wife.



As I am being tackled by them both I simply lift my chin to the sky and mouth a thank you. And I silently asked my Father to let this EXIT be for good, and to cover me for where He is taking me.

NEW MUSIC: @HAVOKJONESMUSIC-WHO CAN I RUN TO (COVER)



Do you think they did Xscape justice with this cover?

The quadruple force that is Havok Jones, uniquely comprised of Kea Aleis, MaiDai, Aire B. and Neiko, embodies the vocal ability of En Vogue, charisma of TLC, star power of Destiny’s Child and strength of Xscape. United as one with four daring, Atlanta-savvy personalities, the resurgence of the girl group starts and ends with the multitalented Havok Jones.

Ambitiously paired and given their name ‘Havok Jones’ by group creator and vocal coach Ms. Queen, the ladies quickly defined their new alias: “Similar to the cliché, instead of keeping up with the Jones’, we wreck havoc on them,” said Havok Jones. “Since the Jones’ are the pinnacle of success, we want to overachieve and surpass the standard – humbly.”
In 2012, Havok Jones was founded on the principles of live vocal ability and since then has developed into an untouchable singing powerhouse with defining tone, diction, breath control, technique and exuberant flair. From East Point to Decatur, the Atlanta influence on Havok Jones’ music and unity is undeniable.

The Southern hummingbirds credit their hometown girl group heroes for their relatable, quality sound. The wild, crazy, weird, fun, classy, lady-like combination of talent has just begun their voyage to the top. Their continued ethic to succeed and drive for excellence solidifies this notion: Four leaders. One sound.
Kea Aleis – Goofy. Strong. Reserved. Confident.
MaiDai – Wild. Fun. Crazy. Care-Free.
Aire B. – Realist. Forward. Feisty. Energetic
Neiko – Awkward. Innovative. Weird. Emotional.

NEW MUSIC: @NICKIMINAJ-PILLS N POTIONS



[Pre-Hook]
Pills n potions
We're overdosing
I'm angry but I still love you
Pills n potions
We’re overdosing
Can't stand it but I still love you


[Hook: Nicki Minaj] x4
I still love, I still love, I still love, I still love, I still lo-o-ve

[Verse 1: Nicki Minaj]
Ayo, they could never make me hate you
Even though what you was doin’ wasn’t tasteful
Even though you out here lookin’ so ungrateful
I'mma keep it movin’ be classy and graceful

I told 'em it’s no friends in the game, you ain’t learned that yet
All the bridges you came over, don’t burn that yet
Niggas want respect, but niggas ain't earned that yet
Self-righteous and entitled but they swearin' on the bible that they love you
When really they no different from all your rivals

But I still don’t wish death on ‘em
I just reflect on 'em


[Pre-Hook]

[Hook: Nicki Minaj]

[Verse 2: Nicki Minaj]
Yo, people will love you and support you when it’s beneficial
I'mma forgive, I won't forget, but I'mma dead the issue

Soon as you out a nigga’s life is when they start to miss you
They see you doin' good now it’s kinda hard to diss you
Niggas be sick when they remember all the bad they wished you
Niggas be mad when they can't come and live lavish with you

But I sped off in a Benzi
I see the envy when I’m causin' a frenzy
So I pop pills for 'em
Cop cribs in the hills on ‘em

[Pre-Hook]

[Hook: Nicki Minaj]

[Bridge: Nicki Minaj]
I get high off your memory
I get high off your memory
I get high off your memory

In due time we’ll be fine
In due time, aah

[Hook: Nicki Minaj]

[FULL VIDEO] @SOLANGE LET'S LOOSE ON @S_C_ AT THE MET GALA

So a video just surfaced from none other than TMZ that shows Solange throwing hands at her brother-inlaw, Jay Z. I have no idea what the younger sister could have been so upset about, but it definitely was no love lost in that elevator. What I can't understand is why Bey literally did nothing? I'm not talking about fight her husband or fight her sister, I'm talking about grabbing her sister, or her husband or something..but she literally DID NOTHING. Now again..who knows what was happening, but we know how protective Solange is over her big sis..and for the people thinking Solange is broke, ya'll better start checking the SONGWRITING CREDIT'S for her, specifically on Bey's albums. Check out the video below.

I have to ask myself is this part of the word I received 1/12/14
RocNation is coming down..the only one spared will be Rihanna. It's funny because I always thought how would that happen Lord Rihanna is not signed to RocNation..but it was announced a week ago that the Bajan beauty has left Def Jam, and indeed signed with RocNation.

NEW MUSIC: @ITSOB FEAT. @DRAKE-2 ON/THOTFUL



So the Ovo crew strikes again. Drake new artist OB OBrien, drops a brand new track with the boy called, 2 On/Thotful. The rapper has everyone wondering if he is dissing Rihanna in the new track..stating  On the second part of the song, entitled “Thotful,” he toasts to the thots. “We’re not in this for commitment / Your man’s gone and you don’t miss him,” ....yet is he really dissing the Bajan beauty? I don't know. I mean please. Yet as the twitter dragging of Drake commence by the Navy..I'm just so happy that this Aubrih stuff is put the rest. Rihanna has separated herself from the Canadian rapper for over a month now..what really look more like a publicity stunt for the rapper in my opinion..cause there never seem to be a true 'love' connection.

 The Word of the Lord 3-30-14
Concerning Drake and Rihanna, there is nothing to worry about. Her HEART is for her HUSBAND CHRISTOPHER. Drake tried, yet I raised up a standard against him. he will RETURN BACK to what he knows.

[MINISTRY] AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE




Happy 21st birthday Christopher D. Young

Today I sat and thought about what I have this day brought forth for my life. And I wanted to share with you all today briefly how good out Heavenly Father is.

Most who are dedicated visitors of this blog knows that my son passed away 17yrs ago when he was 4yrs old. So I won't go back though that story but let me tell you how 17yrs later I realized how completely HEALED I am from the pain and depression of him passing on.

After everything happened people would come up to me and say "time will heal your wounds" and I would nod my head in agreeance saying yea as time goes by it the pain will lessen. Let me tell you this...NO! That's not true. Time heals nothing. There are so many people right now who are harbor in gall types of pain, hurts, depression, for years and the pain hasn't lessened but gotten worse. Let me tell you what HEALS you!

The FAITH IN GODS WORD...is where healing is manifested. Why? Because the WORD MADE MANIFEST died and was resurrected that we may be healed! It wasn't until I began to "eat" the word and allow it to make an indelible impression on my heart to the degree that I agreed with it, and began to speak it in faith that I realized speaking about my son no longer came with PAIN.

Now there are times where I'm emotional, but not in a bad way..just the feeling if missing him. Yet I know it's because of his life that I gave my life to Christ. I know I will see him again! Glory to God.

Now let me end this by saying...your life has purpose. It doesn't matter if your 4, 24, 44, or 104...if you breathing you matter. Take the time to be healed. Christ died for it so take advantage of it! Get the truth f God's word in you! It's the WORD spoken in faith that heals!

Love CM
