Hey Myron Monday: "The Fire is Gone"

Hey Myron Monday: "The Fire is Gone"

Hey Myron, I don't think I love my wife anymore!! Now don't get me wrong, I do care for her a great deal, but the truth is the "fire" is gone. You see when we first met I couldn't keep my hands off of her. She had me so gone Myron. I'm talking baby was BAD! Shaped like a Coke bottle, ass like a Georgia peach and her hair was always on point. But after we said "I do" she just let herself go.



I've asked her on several occasion to "spice it up/ switch it up" but her response is "we're married." Well Myron, I've recently found myself thinking and dreaming about other women especially one co- worker. Myron this chick is the truth (36-24-36). She's single, no kids and has the prettiest lips I've ever seen. Look, if my wife doesn't shape up I'm shipping out! Help a brother out! -Ready to Bounce


Hey Ready to Bounce, don’t say you don’t love her anymore, because you know that’s not true. You do SO love her. You’re just in a slump right now and the fire has dissipated a little bit. Every marriage suffers “lulls” every now and then. It’s easy to get caught up in the everyday routine of everyday life. And by the time it’s get down to the two of you, all of the energy has been used for other things. But you have to fight for this.

You said you’ve asking HER to spice it up, but what are you really asking her to do? Does she know? Have you given her any ideas?

True, things may need to be spiced up a bit. However, someone has to be the one to take charge and make things happen. Why not you? Don’t wait on her! Take the lead! You got to be that one to bring that fire back in your marriage! 

Now, as for this lady on your job…really bro?

You think she looks fine and all, but she could come with a set of issues of her own. Everybody has their own issues. But right now, you know exactly what you have at home. And although you’re interested in this lady, you didn’t even say that this woman was interested in you. But, you’re ready to throw away your marriage for her? Right now it looks like this chick is just a guess and a fantasy. This is not really making any sense to me.

Before you make a bad move, here is my advice. Come back down to earth! Shift your focus back to your wife. Do things to encourage her to spice it up. Get her up and out of the house! Really make a conscious effort to get the fire back!

Yall go somewhere you’ve never been and do something you’ve never done! Sometimes, you have to get out of your normal environment and focus on each other while leaving the stressful aspects of your life behind. This will do wonders. Try it, youll be surprised!

Bringing Hip Hop back one song at a time... Jay DaSkreet

Bringing Hip Hop back one song at a time... Jay DaSkreet

Chicago born and Mississippi raised, hip hop artist Jay DaSkreet is on the rise. Writing at an early age became his early escape from the rough roads of the Mississippi Delta. He transitioned into writing poems, short stories and eventually entire songs. Even though Jay is considered a hip hop artist, he has written and co-written songs in almost every genre and is currently working on the release of Walk The Line Vol. 2. As the second installment of the Walk the Line project, this masterpiece picks up where Vol. 1 left off, introducing Jay and his love of the craft to everyone that will listen. Jay DaSkreet is bringing hip hop back one song at a time.

Walk The Line Vol.1 it's now available on all digital download sites including DatPiff.com  There are several visuals on YouTube that feature songs from the project. Jay has worked with artists such as Queat Harris, Japan, Latoya Bright, Ya Boi Slicc, Duce Hare and the extremely talented Saxophonist Dr. Gregory Shaw aka The Don Gregory just to name a few. He has also worked with countless producers including Haywire, Slim Pro Beatz, Know Good Productions, and Trackman just to name a few. In addition to the Walk The Line Vol. 2 project, Jay will also be releasing an artist family generated mixtape entitled "No Chill." No Chill is a "listener's choice" project that only includes songs requested by his fans.  

Jay DaSkreet’s music has been picked up by iHeart radio and can be currently heard on his own iHeart Radio station. He can also be found on Soundcloud. There are big things on the horizon for this artist so in his own words "Expect Greatness."




Chasing the Rap Dream in your 40s

Chasing the Rap Dream in your 40s

"Got skills to open eyes, Same time blowing minds, Thats why I still rhyme"....... "Why I Still Rhyme" Iron Mic Coalition

Recently, my children and I attended a show of self proclaimed "King of Memphis" hip hop artist, Jason Da Hater. Now before you frown and wonder why would anyone call themselves a "Hater", hear me out. "Everyone likes to refer to others as a hater, so why not be the person everyone is talking about."  Jason da Hater has been on the local scene for over 10 years.  While opening for and performing with major hip hop pioneers such as KRS 1, Dead Prez, and Common, he is apart of Memphis hip hop group or Memphop group, Iron Mic Coalition. IMC consists of  The Derelict, The Mighty Quinn, General MacArthur, Milkk, Empee, Dj Capital A, Jason da Hater, Duwu Black Face, and Avenging Wind (R.I.L.) . And Guess what! They are all in the 40+ club (or almost). So why continue to chase the dream of rocking crowds all over this country and others. Most would say, if you haven't made it by now why pursue it or better yet why continue to perform?  If you ask Jason da Hater, he will jokingly respond, "Because I don't have anything else to do" (which we know is not true along with being an emcee, he's an educator and coach) and then reply seriously with, "Why is it a singer can sing for several years and not be asked why? Its not a physical sport where the body wears down. So, why not?" Why not is CORRECT! Who says that you stop pursing, stop listening, stop dreaming, or in this case stop rhyming at a certain age. And whoever that person is, Forget them! We have seen people wait until retirement to go off and do what they really wanted to do before life happened. Before the job, the kids, the mortgage, and car notes, you had dreams and aspirations of running your own business, acting, or modeling maybe even rapping. These cats just never stopped nor did so many others like them. Along with being an emcee, they are educators, business owners, blue and white collar workers, etc. The dream doesn't die with age. A person just kills it before it can flourish or mature.

Over the years, we have seen hip hop artists from the 90s reappear and do shows allowing us to relive those school days where hip hop was a huge part of our lives. Those artists continue to do it for the love of hip hop and a few dollars. Hip hop never dies. It lives within. The art continues to flow through the veins of emcees. As long as hip hop lives, so will the emcee....

Pac Man & Super Mario Bros: 80s Childhood Video Games (From the Mind of V Diddy)

Pac Man & Super Mario Bros: 80s Childhood Video Games (From the Mind of V Diddy)

Last weekend, my children decided that they wanted to challenge their mom on a video game. Looking at the fact that video games are a huge part of my 13 year old son's life right now, I quickly obliged. The Brooks Museum has an exhibit called "The Art of Video Games" and as a part of the exhibit you get to whoop your kids in a game of Pac Mac or in my case, Super Mario Bros. I haven't had that much fun in a while. I couldn't believe that I remembered the old strategies of getting extra coins and secret passages on a game that is nearly as old as I am. Take your children out for some inexpensive fun at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art.

"The Art of Video Games is the brainchild of Chris Melissinos, founder of Past Pixels, an organization which records and preserves video games. He planned the exhibition in collaboration with the Smithsonian American Art Museum, but relied upon the public to decide its contents. The Art of Video Games reflects the choices of 119,000 people from 175 countries who cast 3.7 million votes to decide which, among hundreds of games, were the most important. Featuring the work of the most influential artists and designers The Art of Video Games explores eighty-five examples of the genre, ranging from early works for Atari VCS to the cutting-edge games of PlayStation 3.  Five playable games—Pac-Man, Super Mario Brothers, The Secret of Monkey Island, Myst, and Flower—allow visitors to interact with diverse virtual worlds, highlighting not only their innovative techniques, but their legendary, almost addictive appeal." 

"The Art of Video Games is organized by the Smithsonian American Art Museum with generous support from the Entertainment Software Association Foundation; Sheila Duignan and Mike Wilkins; Shelby and Frederick Gans; Mark Lamia; Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk; Rose Family Foundation; Betty and Lloyd Schermer; and Neil Young." ~From the Memphis Brooks Museum website http://www.brooksmuseum.org/

The Art of Video Games ends September 13th at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art located at 1934 Poplar. Admission costs are $7 Adults and $3 Youth (7-17).

Hey Myron: "Porn as the Replacement"

Hey Myron: "Porn as the Replacement"

Hey Myron, I’m dating this man who loves to watch pornography.  When he first introduced me to it I was totally against it. However, now I have grown to enjoy it so much that I don’t even care if my boyfriend is involved or not. I actually prefer that he isn’t. I love being alone and touching myself while I watch the videos more than him touching me when we watch together.  As a matter of fact, I’m not even all that interested in my boyfriend anymore.  We have been together for 4 years.  Should I leave my boyfriend? Or should I stay with him in hopes that my interest will return? Totally Addicted


Hey Totally Addicted, if what I’m reading is correct, you have all but replaced your man of four years with pornography…and he introduced you to his replacement.  What I gathered by reading your letter is that the most important thing you two seem to have had in common was sex. And now that the sex in jeopardy, the interest is no longer there for you.

You asked me if you should leave your boyfriend. First of all, I would never tell anyone to leave their mates. That one has gotta be totally up to you. But I’m curious. I’m wondering what type of relationship the two of you had before porn entered the situation. Did the two of you actually care for one another? Did the two of you ever go out and do things together? Did you enjoy spending time around each other? If you spent the last four years of your lives together and you answered YES to any of those questions, it’s obviously clear that the two of you have something in common outside of sex?

However, whatever that may be doesn’t hold much value, because now that porn has entered the picture, you have pretty much checked out and you’re now ready to walk away. And I gotta be honest, I’m very curious to know what type of porn causes a person to walk away from a four year relationship? Sounds pretty powerful to me.

Again…I’ll never tell you to leave your mate but staying with him in hopes that your interest will return is not fair to you nor him. However, if this is solely a sexual thing for you and you have no real feelings involved and pornography is all you need, then it’s senseless to string someone along when you’re no longer interested in them.  If you don’t love him and cannot see any kind of future with him, he most certainly needs to know that. But remember this…pornography is not a substitute for a real person.
