Lil' Uzi Vert seems so humble, says wassup to kids on school bus (video)

And, my new favorite rapper is .... *drum roll, please* .... Lil' Uzi Vert!

I must admit, I'm out of the loop when it comes to all of these young, new rappers and I don't even know most of their names. But, Lil' Uzi - who had one of the biggest songs of the year with "XO TOUR Llif3" - is different. There's something about him that I really like. His free-spirited personality, his smile and overall how humble he is. 

The 23-year-old rapper casually walked over to kids on a school bus and said "What's poppin?," and he continues to talk to the kids as he's eating his Popsicle.

The video is just a feel good moment and makes you smile from seeing how carefree Lil' Uzi seems to be. His personality is just so dope, with his lil' happy self!

Azealia Banks throws hella shade at Remy Ma during Instagram beef, Remy responds!

Remy Ma and Azealia Banks went back and forth trading insults on Instagram this weekend.

It all started over Remy's interview with Ebro in the Morning where the "Wake Me Up" rapper spoke on the status of women in hip-hop. 

"When I came home it was nothing. It was tumbleweeds blowing through as far as female artists is concerned," Remy said during her interview.

Well, here comes Azealia Banks - who has gotten in plenty of social media spats with a number of female rappers - who jumped all over it and responded to Remy with a long rant: 

"Remy - the hottest things you've released since you've been out of jail are Nicki love letters and she's still miles more important than you," Azealia wrote with a screenshot of Remy's quote.

Azealia then changed her caption and wrote:

"Ahem.... let me rephrase ... Remy ... you absolutely must step your shit up," she added. "The music you have been releasing is some serious old head rap shit and it's 100% unfair that you stand up on your reality tv booster seat and make any statements about female rap as if you have done a single thing to move the cultural needle since you've been home. It is not 2000."

This didn't sit well with Remy Ma who responded by exposing old texts she received from Azealia making her look desperate. 

"Ayo, I know you ain’t talkin about me, dog. You? What?! You been on my dick; you love my style," she captioned the screenshots. 

"Ps: I know you don’t want no smoke so I’ll play ya lil social media games until I allow my team to convince me to stop."

Remy even exposed an alleged text where Azealia supposedly vents about the appearance of her vagina and several more where she disses Nicki Minaj, who Azealia recently publicly made amends with.

"DONT FUCKIN CHANGE YA CAPTION NOW!" Remy wrote. "I got a year and a half more of u stalking me, hating on ya new fave, & getting ignored... I’m officially airing out ALL y’all chicks that was on MY line heavy when I touched down & now all of a sudden got amnesia."

Peep the back and forth Instagram exchanges below (click arrow on pics to view more).





If only Azealia Banks spent this same amount of energy towards her music instead of trying to shine in social media beefs.  

Remy also went on Instagram live and talked even more about Azealia and even threw in a couple of shots at Nicki Minaj about her brother

Yikes! 



UPDATE: Azealia responded to Remy's response in a near 10-minute rant on her Instagram stories and says to leave Nicki Minaj alone.

Grand Harvest Wine Festival review + 6 wine tasting tips

I attended the annual Grand Harvest Wine Festival (for the third time) at Fosterfields Living Historical Farm in Morristown, NJ.

I'm adding a new wine tab on this website. So, stay tuned for more wine updates and recommendations from me!

The wine festival always takes place outside in October which is the perfect month - after the summer heat and right before the extremely cold winter weather kicks in. For the wine tasting, it costs $25 for admission, $20 in advance, and this includes a wine glass.



When you walk in a little further, you'll see a bunch of tents set up in a huge circle on grass with different wineries where you can sample hundreds of wines. In the middle, you can find tents for artisans and crafters.

6 Tips To Make Your Wine Tasting Experience Flow Better

- Get there EARLY! The festival starts at noon and ends at 5 p.m. The organizers usually start letting people in at 11:30 a.m. and the tents are often crowded. At least if you're early, you get to hit up a couple of tents before the crowd really kicks in around 12:30 p.m.

- I suggest buying your tickets in advance to save money and to avoid the separate line of people who still have to pay. If you purchase in advance and print out your ticket, it's much quicker to get in.

- You are allowed to bring a cooler and chairs. I definitely suggest bringing your own snacks/food, water, and chairs. This year, us wine festival attendees were blessed to have beautiful warm weather verses the other years I've attended where it was much cooler. A lot of people brought their own chairs to kick back and enjoy the music and nice weather. Every year there is a different band that performs. There are a limited amount of chairs infront of the stage and a limited amount of tables near the food trucks.

- Food truck lines were extremely long! I felt like I was at Six Flags waiting to get on a new roller coaster. I waited at least a half hour in line for The Guac Spot truck. Instead of completely wasting my time, I made sure to drink some wine while waiting in line. If you don't want to wait in long lines, I suggest bringing your own snacks.

- Wine tasters are given a pencil and a couple of sheets of paper which includes the wineries and all of the wines they sell. I highly suggest making notes of all of the wines you absolutely love and perhaps cross off the ones you don't like at all. This makes it easier to remember which ones you like so you know what to purchase.

- You can open bottles of wine that are purchased at the festival (no outside liquor is permitted). If you're doing the wine tasting, I say, don't drink too much of the wine you buy so you have time to walk around all of the tents. The same wineries are pretty much there every year with most of the same wines. So, if you're a vet like me and already know what wines you like, you can attend the festival and skip out on the wine tasting all together so you don't have to pay the admission fee. Just purchase your wine bottles, kick back, drink, listen to good music and relax.

The Yummy Wines I Purchased

- One Nation Blueberry, Pink & Red from Villari Vineyards, $27.50 for the entire box (three bottles come in a box). - Santa's Little Helper from Valenzano Winery, $11. This is one of my personal favorites. A great wine for the holidays! - Red Raspberry Moscato, $12.95, and Artisan Orchard Apple/Cranberry Blend, $7.95, from Tomasello Winery. - Give Peach A Chance from Auburn Road Vineyards, $12.83.

Lil' Mama says she has forgiven and grown since her infamous 2009 VMA's moment of crashing Jay-Z's performance

Jay-Z celebrated his 48th birthday yesterday and Lil' Mama decided to drop him a birthday message on her Instagram page. 

The "Lip Gloss" rapper posted a photo of her and Jay, the photo that was snapped in 2009 of her crashing his and Alicia Keys' Video Music Awards performance

This was the infamous moment when she took the stage uninvited and tried to pose next to Jigga and Alicia. Afterwards, Lil' Mama apologized and Hov called the act "outta line." She was ridiculed by fans. She also revealed that she lost a lot of work because of it. Lil' Mama meant no harm by it and said she was just trying to celebrate New York where both her and Hov are from. 

Eight years later and on Hov's birthday, Lil' Mama brought up that moment, again. Many people were confused in her comments as to why she would post that particular photo of her and Jay along with the caption: "IM STILL STANDING WIT YOU ... HAPPY BIRTHDAY HOV."

A post shared by N I A T I A (@lilmama) on

But, Lil' Mama didn't stop there. 

She posted another photo, this time a picture of Jay Z alone, and she wrote a longer message to clear up what her first post meant. The 28-year-old rapper says she has grown and forgiven.

"My Last Post was Intended to acknowledge growth. That night, two of my hometown Heros felt disrespected and in return I felt neglected. However time heals all and give us the gift of hindsight (20/20 vision) where we can see things clearer, learn and grow from them."

She continued, "Even having to overcome the scrutiny that came with my choices, I still find it in my heart to forgive and LOVE in Hopes That it is returned upon me."

"I recently watched Jay Z’s interview with The New York Times editor and chief and leaned so much about forgiveness and pushing culture forward. I am inspired by your honesty, vulnerability and maturity. I’m ready for dialogue."


If I was Lil' Mama, I wouldn't even bring this up anymore. It happened. Shit happens. Now, just let it go.
