Young Entrepreneur Cory Nieves [Written by @KoffeeB]
9-year-old Cory Nieves is the cutest thing! Not only has this little boy started his own business, but he’s also looking fashion forward while doing it! The CEO of Mr. Cory’s Cookies started his business to help his mother purchase a car after their move from New York to New Jersey. His thought process is elevated from most 9 year olds. To be a CEO, you have to look like a CEO. Imagine where he’ll be in 10 years? The movement was built to bring creators together no matter what age or creed. Follow young Cory and purchase some cookies.

YP Mixtape Release Party hosted by Urban Fetes [Written by @WahlaSmalls]
Last night Urban Fetes hosted rap artist, YP’s Mixtape Release Party at Riff Lounge (2239 S Michigan Chicago, IL), the event was also sponsored by Bacadi. If you’re not familiar with YP get familiar soon before the whole world gets to him. In 2012 YP was named one of “10 New Chicago Rappers To Watch Out for” in Complex.
He recently released his mixtape BackWood Jones on Aug. 27th on Livemixtapes.com with so much love from his home city, Chicago.
The love was really shown last night by the amount of people that came out to support his mixtape release as well as just supporting YP as an artist. Dj Jamal Smallz and Dj Commando were on the one’s and two’s while YP performed a few songs and had the crowd rocking with him hard. The energy from the Dj’s is very important because they set the tone of the event and both Dj’s were rocking with YP heavy, which made for a better performance. YP didn’t perform the whole night, but for the few minutes that he did he owned the stage and put the cherry on top of his party.

LET’S BE COPS #MovieReview [Written by @KoffeeB]
“LET’S BE COPS" was an action packed comedy full of suspense and well… comedy! (Spoiler alert! Read on at your own risk!) Damon Wayans, Jr. Playing Justin, a video game designer and Jake M. Johnson playing Ryan, an ex football player are down on their luck after moving to L.A and not making it big as they initially thought. As they prepare for their college reunion they decide to dress up as cops after getting the invitation to the “costume” party. From that point on their lives changed! People thought they were real cops! This movie is absolutely hilarious because while Ryan is completely dedicated to the roll of being a cop, Justin is scared out of his mind fighting crime and the fear of getting caught! This movie is a must see! I give this film TWO THUMBS!
Rising Star [Written by @De_Misha]
Over the summer ABC introduced another music talent show called “Rising Star”! It features talented ordinary music artists looking to become the next rising star in the music industry, and I must say I give it a thumbs up! It brings something different other than shows like the “Voice” and “American Idol”. On Rising Star the people at home vote who moves on from the beginning through the end and the judges (Ludacris, Kesha, & Brad Paisley) only make up 7% of the vote counting. It’s almost at the end of its season, but don’t fret you can catch up on episodes by visiting your On Demand!
Our Children, Our Kids, A Country’s Champion [Written by @De_Misha]
This pass weekend proved why I love my city Chicago so much!! The togetherness, the positive energy, excitement, and the support that we showed rooting for our children as they took on some of the best in little league. Quick fact: This is the second time Jackie Robinson West made an appearance in The Little League World Series since 1983, it’s been around for about 43 years. So as you can see we have a lot to be excited about. I’m personally overjoyed to have been apart of something so great!
So August 27th Chicago will host a parade to celebrate the boys, coaches, and parents!

In 68 years, Mo’ne Davis is only the 18 female to play in the Little League World Series. Pitching a ball on average at 70MPH, this 13year old has been turning some heads. Playing for the Philadelphia Taney Dragon’s, Mo’ne has been setting the bar pretty high!
She’s the first girl to throw a shutout in the Little League World Series, the sixth to get a hit in World Series history, and the first Little Leaguer to get front-page of Sports illustrated! Davis also has a bunch of endorsement deals on the table and this is all while getting ready to start 8th grade!
Even though her team is now out of the World Series, Mo’ne plans on playing basketball. Hope u don’t plan on seeing her playing Baseball in the future because her ultimate goal is to be point guard for the University of Connecticut women’s basketball team and then play in the WNBA!
ONCE UPON A TIME… [Written by @KoffeeB]
So y’all know I live for Netflix right? Well I just got done watching season 2 of ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” and maaaan am I addicted! I won’t give it all away, but if you like shows that take your imagination into far far away then this is it! It’s a dark mystery that switches between various fairytale stories, such as Snow White and the Seven Dorfs to Cinderella and Prince Charming. “In this fantasy series, a young woman is drawn to a small Maine town and discovers that it’s filled with elements of the fairy tale world.” The twist is that no one knows that they are from a fairytale but the evil queen. I’m telling you, I’m not usually into shows like this but yup… I’M HOOKED! . Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis have created a wonderful spin on our childhood storybooks.
