Music You Missed Vol. 2

For the second installment of Music You Missed, I went all the way back to the year 2000. For those of you who remember, there was a track that garnered some decent radio play at the time by Dynamite Hack. It was an acoustic cover of Eazy-E's "Boyz-N-The Hood."
It came off of the album "Take a Bite Outta Rhyme: A Rock Tribute to Rap." Most people were content with the Dynamite Hack tune and didn't dig any deeper on the album, which is a shame. One of the best songs on the album is a cover of the Run-DMC song "Sucker M.C.'s" by The Lordz of Brooklyn (now just The Lordz) with Stoned Soul and Everlast. Darryl McDaniels -a.k.a DMC- has called this his favorite cover of any Run-DMC song to date, and with good reason. The Lordz took a great, old-school rap song that was largely based on the sound of programmed drums and turned it into a well-crafted acoustic song with a bit of electric guitar edge to it. Everlast's gritty vocals are the perfect accompaniment and the end result is a new song that stands on its own merits.

A 'Jerseylicious' Split!

Such has been the case for 'Jerseylicious' star, Tracy DiMarco , who always went head-to-head with Olivia Blois-Sharpe on the show based around the never-ending drama at the Jersey salon, The Gatsby.

She continued to pursue her passion, have three kids, develop a wildly successful podcast, and work on clothing and accessories.  But, when you are in the public eye, boasting 541K followers on Instagram , almost everything you do is up for scrutiny. Fans (and haters) began to notice a lack of presence when it came to her husband, Corey and questioned if their marriage was okay. There is an abundance of photos of daughters, Skylar and

'The Real L Word' Cast- Where Are They Now?

  photo courtesy of With the return of the hit Showtime series, 'The L Word,' it makes fans of the original show and ultimate reality spinoff, 'The Real L Word,' quite nostalgic. Actors can keep acting but reality stars can drift off into the clouds after their 15 minutes of fame are over. TRLW lasted three seasons with a revolving door of lesbians who soon became like friends and family. Initially based in California, the show followed the lives of a handful of gay women, somehow intertwined in life, and what it was like to date, fall in love, have sex, try to make babies, propose, be successful, and so much more. By the final season, the series went bi-coastal, utilizing NYC as a playground, as well. The show ended in 2012 with two weddings and a lot of tears. So, where are they now?
