Burger King Plans 2 Have A Beer Selling Whopper Bar In South Beach

Burger King will unveil plans to sell beer and burgers at a Whopper Bar — a new BK concept to compete with casual dining restaurants — in Miami Beach's tourist-heavy South Beach. The South Beach Whopper Bar is scheduled to open in mid-February. Don't look for beer at conventional Burger Kings. That's not in the plans. But more Whopper Bars — which offer an assortment of burgers, toppings and beer — could be on tap in tourist hot spots such as New York, Los Angeles and Las Vegas, says Chuck Fallon, president of Burger King North America. A brewski at the new Whopper Bar — served in special aluminum bottles to keep them extra cold — fetches $4.25. Or, order beer as part of a Whopper combo and your bill will be $7.99 — roughly $2 more than the same combo meal with a fountain drink. The unusual move comes as the restaurant industry is reeling. Restaurant operators reported lower same-store sales in November, compared with a year earlier, for the 18th-consecutive month, the National Restaurant Association reports. Nearly 65% of operators reported a same-store sales decline in November.

Well I've taken a break from fast foods anyway cause the last 2 1/2 years I gained over 20 pounds eating that shit. I got a lil' fat in the cheeks & my gut so I'm tryin' 2 get my mojo back 4 the summer. I can gain & loose weight easy so I gotta control my weight, one year I was skinny as fuck & the next year I was gettin' thick.
Time 2 get that Mojo Back!!

I Got A Lotta Work 2 Do

I'm sitting here watching Obama's State Of The Union Address & he said jobs is the top priority 4 2010. I hope so cause I need some money, I'm tryin' 2 get money off this blog & it's harder than I thought. The recession put me outta college & outta work, I'm calm & confident now but in 2007, 2008 who knows depression would be @ an all time high. I'm afraid 2 think about what I would've done 2 myself but then I was able get some wack jobs. I guess what made me different then I was 2 years ago was my best friend D-Nyce who passed away almost a year ago & in our 12 year friendship I only seen him mad like 3 times, he's never mad. Even thru hard times he brushes it off like nuttin', me I can't do that as much as him. He tough me 2 smile more even when situations ain't good cause if you're not havin' a good day now 2morrow can be better. Damn I miss my nigga... Ok enuff rambling back 2 the drawing board...smh.

Drake On The Cover Of Complex Magazine

The first time we ever spoke, you said that you were more in tune with R&B artists than the current new guys rapping.

Drake: When you're coming up, and you're in competition with somebody, it's always hard to have a friendship. I think Cudi and I are realizing that we don't threaten each other. It's ended up being one of the greatest industry friendships I have.

Around the time that Kanye directed "Best I Ever Had," it seemed like there was strife between your camp and Cudi's camp because Kanye was so enamored of you while Cudi's project was being worked on.

Drake: I wasn't aware of that. Even so, I could understand. If Wayne were to be enamored—which is a great word—of another young artist, I would be like, "Damn, I'm here too!" But at the same time, it happens in more than one situation. It happens with 'Ye, and I have a great relationship with Jay, and Jay's got Wale and J. Cole, who's one of my favorite dudes rapping right now. I've happened to have had more success. I made the most money, I have number-one records, those guys don't have that shit. And it's just facts, it's not even my feelings or that I feel I'm more talented. That's what the game is about, making great music that earns profit. When it comes to my relationship with the new dudes, I'm just excited for them. I get to sit back in a cool position and be like, "Yo, I'm excited to see you do it now because I know what it's like, it's gonna be so much fun for you…"

You feel like you're at the finish line?

Drake: I'm at the starting line. Those guys are at home, putting on their tracksuits, getting ready to make their attack. When J. Cole gets it super-right, I think he's gonna have a place as a Nas-type character who really stands for hip-hop, but still makes ill records that everybody fucks with.

If J. Cole is Nas, then who are you?

Drake: [Laughs.] I'm the young big homie! (Jay-Z)

Of all your contemporaries, it seems like you want to be famous the most.

Drake: That's gonna change. When Cole's sound is the new sound that everybody wants to hear, he's gonna be like, "I wanna be as big as possible with this shit." I didn't jeopardize anything to be in the position I'm in. You're listening to the shit that I believe in, not some shit I did because I needed to get here. People just happen to embrace my shit. That's very rare—but I also think the younger generation appreciates that brand of music, so I think it's possible for one of these guys to emerge and do exactly what I'm doing.

How's the atmosphere at Young Money now that Wayne is about to go to jail?

Drake: We don't really talk about it. It's surreal to me still. I guess on the day that it really happens, I'll start thinking about what I gotta do. I wanna have a talk with Wayne and ask him what he needs from me.

You and Wayne share an ability to cross over to diverse groups. What do you think it is that attracts polar-opposite groups to enjoy your music? Is it the Young Money affiliation alone?

Drake: I'm not talking about a thousand rounds in a chopper or payin' 24, 23. It's just delivery. One of my favorite rappers in the world, Jeezy, is somebody who loves my music. For him to not only co-sign what I'm doing but also to want to make music with me is crazy. Wayne had this conversation with me like, "You're in a position where you could be a star. Not just a rapper star. A true star." Me being biracial, me being from Canada but having success in the States, I have all these moments in my life where I'm jumping roof to roof. Black to white. Singing and rapping. My mom's friends listen to my music and don't feel weird about it. They feel weird listening to Wayne.

Does anybody in your extended team ever push you to be more...anything, I guess?

Drake: Never. Nobody's ever come to me and said, "Yo, you need to start rapping about this." Not Sylvia [Rhone, president of Motown/executive VP of Universal], Wayne, Doug Morris [CEO of Universal]. Nobody's ever said that to me in my life. I don't think anybody could ever do that. I talk about my real life. That's undeniable shit.

Are there other rappers you bounce ideas off of that may give you a line?

Drake: I've done it with three people. You don't want to have clowns in the studio being like, "You should do it like this!" That shit'll get annoying. But when you have a valid opinion around, it takes a lot of the pressure off.

Is one of those "valid opinions" from a rapper named Nickelus F.?

Drake: Not really. Me and F worked together at a younger stage in my life, but I can't really say that I all-the-way utilized Nickelus for anything on So Far Gone. F's one of the most gifted people I know at finding flows. I like to write for myself, though. He's helped me before, just not on a consistent basis. But yeah, F is dope.

Bad Day .... My Cell Phone Is Broken

Yesterday I was walking 2 A&P, (Long walk from my house) my phone clip fell from my waist & on to the street & I didn't even noticed. I came outta A&P & finalized my cell is not on me so I panicked. I search around A&P then I retraced my steps... nothing, it was dark out so I really couldn't see but I stayed out for 2 hours looking 4 it. I got home thinking somebody took it but was determined 2 get it back. I woke up this morning @ 6:30AM went out 2 find the cell phone, since it was light out side. I found it broken after a H2 Hummer passed me by. I have a strong feeling that H2 hummer crushed my celly, that & other cars. I lost my cell phone before this so a discount 4 a new celly is outta the question.

4 NOW ON I HATE H2 HUMMERS!! EVERY TIME I SEE ONE IT'S GONNA REMIND ME OF THIS DAY!! WTF!?!? I feel naked witout my cellphone :(

Late Nite Warz!!

This reminds me of wrestling back in the day but 4 wrestling it was Monday nites. They had WWE Monday Night Raw vs WCW Monday Nitro. What's interesting to me is 2 see which wrestler would switch shows & of course WWE Monday Night Raw won the war. That's how I see it wit the late shows: The Jay Leno Show(NBC), The Tonight Show w/ Conan O'Brien(NBC), The Late Show w/ David Latterman (CBS) & Jimmy Kimmel Live(ABC). All these guys are throwing shots @ Jay Leno cause NBC wants 2 move Leno @ 11:30 & push Conan back 2 midnite & that pushes Jimmy Fallon & Carson Daily back an hour as well. Conan hates the idea & would rather leave so Jay gets The Tonight Show back.
So here's Jeno Leno as he speaks about his side of the Late Nite Warz goin' on from New York to L.A.

Now here's Conan O'Brien expressing his feelings about NBC & Jay, check it out...

Now here's Jimmy Kimmel as a guest on The Jay Leno Show. This is classic rite here, Jimmy killin' Jay Leno on his own show...ouch!!

Now David Latterman adds his 2 cents into the warz. Talks about his time on NBC in the 80's & mocks Jay.
Stay tunned for the continuation of LATE NITE WARZ!!

January 16,1979 - August 25, 2001
Damn I remember when she dropped her 1st album, my older brother introduced me to her music & I quickly became a fan. When she dropped "One In A Million" she put out a classic, Timbaland produced the album & Aaliyah was in control of her career. 2 Grammy award winning singles "Are You That Somebody" (Dr. Do Little Soundtrack) & "Try Again" (Romeo Must Die Soundtrack). She dropped an mature self titled album "Aaliyah", a great follow up to "One In A Million". It kills me cause I saw the last time she was on 106 & Park, she indeed said she was gonna catch a flight 2 The Bahamas right after the show & she never came back. Aaliyah & 8 others were killed in an plane crash after filming her "Rock The Boat" video. She was only 22 years old. If she was alive today she would be 31 years old, she's truly missed but never forgotten. Here's a video she film before her death "More Than A Woman". Losing Aaliyah in the Hip Hop community was like losing Princess Dianna to the world.

Enjoy the video...
