Mediamyxx:Hip Hop Hooray

As a girl raised in the hip hop era I was overjoyed to find out style maven June Ambrose was getting her own show. June is responsible for the Shiny Suits Puff wore and the Mary J that was so hood and so fly. She is responsible to emancipating Mimi’s breast from a shirt and turning Jay-z into a grown man burning his jeans and jersey for a more refined grown up look. June is the official stylist of the US version of the X factor and that is great considering she got her start working at MCA Records.

Mediamyxx:40/40 closed for Health Code Violations

In not surprising news Jay-z 40/40 club was briefly shut down for health code violations. The restaurant received a grade C by the state after an inspection. This is even more interesting since the club just reopened this week after being closed for renovations and repairs. I know that Jay is loyal to his friends that came through the struggle with him but just maybe he should look outside his group of friends to manage this club. The 40/40 has a long line of documented issues over the past years.

Mediamyxx:Hard Knock Life

The devil worshiping Illuminati  must be teaching Jay-z  lesson for all the mentions of God and prayer in the ode to his baby girl Glory because according to the NY Post his Rocawear clothing line is laying people off. Apparently 28 out of 56 employees were let go for economic reasons. Jay-z doesn’t seem to care recently tweeting “Best Week Ever” while basking in the glow of new fatherhood. I guess he has 99 problems but Rocawear aint one.

Mediamyxx:Black Exellence

On January 7th Blue Ivy Carter entered planet earth and since that date the internet has been turned on its axis. Her birth produced everything from ridiculous conspiracy theories tying her to the devil and a surrogate to outrage over her VIP treatment at Lennox Hill. Two parents went to the press to let the world know they were not able to see their children on the sixth floor because of Beyoncé’s security. The two outraged parents however didn’t think filing a complaint with the hospital or state would be needed and, to this day they have not file a formal complaint. The hospital confirms seven other families agreed they had no issues seeing their children and just noticed higher security on the floor . The State of New York dismissed any wrong doing on the hospital’s part as the complaints that were actually filed   were instigated by people not even at the hospital during the Carters stay but some outraged by the media reports. As the fifteen minutes of fame wears off for those parents, Lennox Hill also disputes the 1.3 million dollar price tag the tabloids gave the glorious event and gave it a measly eight hundred dollars per night.  It’s clear all the outrage over Baby Blue’s birth was for naught but it also got me to thinking so what if Jay-z spent 1.3 million dollars to bring HIS baby into the world? Who are you to tell a man who earned his money how he should spend it. What if he did decide to paint the sky blue for his daughter? In the nursery rhyme hush little baby the song focuses on what Papa’s going to buy his baby for their happiness and Jay-z seems to really take it to heart and despite the public deciding what would show more couth it’s ok that man has every right to spoil his princess in any way he sees fit. The media has gone to great lengths in the past year to put the spotlight on the relationships of black heavy weights from how they raise their children, to how they spend their money. Days after Blue Ivy’s birth Tina Fey and Jane Krakowski were asked by Matt Lauer if they were upset at the treatment Beyoncé and her baby received while at Lennox Hill. The two actresses revealed they got treatment like anyone else at the hospital, however if the truth is allowed in this scenario the rooms weren’t available at the time they gave birth. Even  Mayor Bloomberg wasn’t immune to the press and their thirst to paint the joyous event in a bad light as the mayor defended the hospital’s right to compete with the luxury room market. Blue Ivy’s birth is one of the most covered stories on the planet and it’s refreshing to see the world celebrating the birth of a black child. If you are tired of the coverage take a nap, but after years of having Suri and the Jolie-Pitts shoved down my throat I celebrate the Carters bringing their baby into the lap of luxury. The one percent vs the ninety-nine percent you are trying to paint in the media ends when a man wants to make sure his wife is comfortable while giving birth to his baby girl. I hope going forward Jay and Beyonce take a strong  stance when asked about this debacle and continues to nurture their “greatest creation” like the princess she is and who gone stop them?
