J-Wonn featuring Tucka - "Pretty Girls"

I adore J-Wonn's music and think he's a really talented artist.  But maybe I'm getting old - I'm not a fan of the video.

Big G - "Last Pay Check"

Big G says he's paid child support to his baby's mama for 18 long years and stick a fork in him because he's done!! He said that his son knows that he loves him and that he can call him every day.  He can always come to him for whatever he needs and he'll always be there for him. But as for this girl, that's it!  He's made his last pay check and it made his day.  I love him!

Don't you call my house
Don't you ring my cell phone
I've done right by you for 18 years
Now go the hell on!!

Like a pitbull on a rope!

Sir Lawrence - "Walking Papers"

Oh man, this is real southern soul and I loved it from the first minute of the song.  Lewis Dee played it on his Grown & Sexy Show and I thank you!! 💕

This is a man who's tired of a lying and cheating woman and I think he's just had enough.  Seems like she broke this guy and he is through.  Here are some of the lyrics:

I'm packing my bags, I'm getting the hell out of here
I won't look back, I won't shed a tear
Cause being with you, I can't take no more
It's over baby, I'm walking out the door
I'm giving you your walking papers, oh yes I am
Your service is no longer needed
I'm giving you your walking papers, oh yes I am
You're free, free baby to see who you want to see

I'm giving you your walking papers, so long baby!

Ms. Jody - "Booty Strut"

What a great line dance song!! Ms. Jody is one of my favorite artists and with "Booty Strut," she'll make you want to get up and move!! She says that when she goes to the club she always looks her best, showing off her legs and her booty in a skintight dress.  Well alright now!!

The line of the song: I do more with this booty than a monkey with a coconut!! 😳😃

Strut it to the left, strut it to the right, I strut it to the front, back it up and work it all night!

Enjoy!

T.J. Hooker-Taylor - 12th Annual Southern Soul Celebration, Ladysmith, Virginia - Part 3

It was an honor interviewing T.J. Hooker-Taylor at the 12th Annual Southern Soul Blues Celebration in Ladysmith, Virginia.  T.J. is son of the legendary Johnnie Taylor.  He performs all over the country, is a great writer, and sings a lot of his father’s music. 

T.J. is a very down-to-earth brother and it was a joy to spend some time with him.  He didn’t try to rush our talk and he wanted to make sure that I had the time to ask everything I wanted.  He’s funny with a wonderful sense of humor and has a great personality.

I learned a lot of interesting things about T.J. and I started with the first commonly-asked question that many artists are asked – how did he get his start in the music industry?  He said that he started singing in the church with his cousins, The Young Golden Voices, in Kansas City, Missouri.  He kept singing through the years and later opened for Johnnie Taylor.  I asked what is his most favorite song to sing and he immediately said that it is his father’s “Soul Heaven;” it has the Taylor groove and he always loves to perform this hit.

I wondered what T.J. did before he became famous and he said that he worked on the grounds at the Forest Hill Cemetery in Kansas City, Missouri.  Ironically, this is also the cemetery where his father is buried.

I was also curious as to the new southern soul artists that he liked and he said that he really liked L. J. Echols and J-Wonn because they both are great musicians.

I asked T.J. what he does in his spare time and here are five things I’ll bet you didn’t know he likes to do:
1     1.  Fish
2     2.  Roller skate
3     3.  Cook
4     4.  Paint
5     5.  Spend time with his girls

T. J. currently lives in Kansas City.  He is a devoted father and takes care of all five of his children.  He continues to record new music and has a new CD titled “Don’t Do It For The Money.”

T.J. Hooker-Taylor proudly said that he will be attending the Arkansas Black Hall of Fame celebration on October 28 in Little Rock and that he will be accepting an award for his father.  I think that is awesome and I really wish I could be there for that.  His goal is to continue the legacy of his father and spread his love of music to the world.  He wants to keep recording and producing good music.  I believe his father, Johnnie Taylor, is smiling down on his son and is pleased with his work.

Here is a picture of my sister, Brenda, and T.J. and then a picture of me with him in Ladysmith!
 Here are a few pictures during his performance.



Listen to "Don't Do It For The Money."

Looking forward to more music from him and to see him perform again. Thank you T.J. Hooker-Taylor for a great interview and a wonderful show!!

Walt Love - "The Rabbit Got Da' Gun"

Walt says it's hunting season all over the USA and you just may be the one who's being hunted. He says that he used to cheat on his woman and acted like he didn't care.  When he finally decided to straighten up, she was having a hot affair and by then it was too late. Fellas, there's a message in the story.  

It ain't no fun when the rabbit's got the gun; it ain't no fun when you lose the one you love.
Amen!
