Beyonce is getting a divorce.

Beyonce ditches Jay Z and her wedding ring.

Beyonce adds dates to her formation tour.

Beyonce and Jay Z are expecting another baby.

Beyonce didn’t carry Blue Ivy.

Beyonce’s breath stinks.

Beyonce lost her virginity to Jay Z.

Beyonce has been proven to plagiarize songs also she doesn’t usually write her own songs.

Beyonce becomes the first woman to chart 12 songs on the Hot 100 at once, passing Taylor Swifts 11.

All 12 of Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade’ Tracks debut on the Hot 100.

I will never knock this woman for anything that she’s done. She’s a great singer, an amazing entertainer, she can act, she can rap and she’s a bad ass businesswoman. But, to be honest… I AM TIRED of hearing about “Queen” Bey. Firstly, when she dropped ‘Lemonade’ I think it was a bit disrespectful due to the fact that we just lost the legendary Prince himself. He couldn’t rest in peace because one minute everyone was mourning his loss, then Bey ‘dropped ‘Lemonade’ and all eyes were on her. She doesn’t deserve the title “Queen’, I’m sorry she doesn’t. She is clearly a well polished marketing tool. Talented nonetheless but so are many other performers. It’s easy to see that her prepackaged persona of cultural versatility is what makes her seem easy for many to acknowledge. This makes her a perfect front to sell anything from sociopolitical agenda to a cold can of Pepsi. Secondly, she hasn’t done much revolutionary lately in all honesty. As a mater of fact, by taking a closer look at her attempt to seem deep, it becomes apparent that she has never been a political revolutionary. All her endeavors to tap into political issues have ended in blunders. One of the most memorable moments is when she openly declared herself a feminist. Remember her “Drunk In Love” Grammy’s performance in 2014 with hubby Jay-z? There’s a line in that song that made many feminists second guess her views on women’s rights. During Jay’s verse he stated “I’m like Ike Turner/You know I don’t play/Now eat the cake anna-mae/Eat the cake Anna-mae.” Beyonce was rapping along to every word leaving many confused on what she really stands for (watch What’s Love Got To Do With It, and you’ll understand why that Jay verse had many women’s rights advocates upset). If that’s not enough to annoy anyone with a sound mind, then let’s take a look at how it’s like she’s her own fucking religion – it’s sickening. i.e “If Beyonce say we leaving our ni**as, we leaving our ni**as. You not gonna catch me out of formation.” You leave your man if you want to, following her lyrics. When it’s all said and done, she’s going back home to her man – Jay Z and her baby girl Blue Ivy. She’s typical now, we know she’s known for dropping albums without notice. She’s also not that beautiful either. Sorry not sorry. There are several artists who are more talented than Beyonce vocal-wise i.e Chrisette Michele, Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia. I can go on. Kid Rock said it best “Beyonce, to me, doesn’t have a fucking Purple Rain, but she’s the biggest thing on Earth,” he said. “How can you be that big without at least one ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ or ‘Old Time Rock and Roll?” Let’s not forget when her belly rolled over during her Australian talk show “Sunday Night HD”. Sorry, I ain’t sorry. I ain’t thinking ’bout you. Middle fingers up, put them hands high.

Niko Brim – “Bonita”

Published

A new era for hip hop artist Niko Brim has begun, boldly detailed in his New York grit and bravado dripped record, “Bonita” – produced by GRAMMY® Award-nominated producer Tank God, co-producer of Post Malone and 21 Savage’s* mega-hit, “Rockstar.” The track leads the E.P. “B4 The Throne” out December 15 on V-Records.

“Bonita’s” release treks the debut of Rapsody’s latest music video “12 Problems” – which features a performance by Niko Brim, who delivers a moving rap dialogue with Reuben Vincent, detailing the impact of police brutality.

“B4 The Throne” is the prequel project dropping ahead of his forthcoming album, “King Has No Crown.”

“This record is for the underdogs; I wanted to crown the kings who’ve not been crowned and remind them, ‘Yeah, You got it.’ It’s to inspire us to keep going. With everything going on is easy to feel small and question our power,” said Niko Brim, who hails from Mount Vernon, New York.

“It’s something for all my people out there working every day and hustling. It’s a reminder of who you are and where you’re headed,” added the 23-year old artist who’s been collaborating with super-producer Tank God since they were teenagers.

A major basketball fan, Brim dropped a visual tribute to LeBron James, after he won his fourth N.B.A. championship leading the Lakers to their 17th, laced to “Bonita.” His bravado on the bridge of the song, “Bonita,” where he rhymes “Looking for the king, well here I am?!” is the perfect rim anthem to celebrate the M.V.P.

Niko Brim’s monthly Instagram show, Power Hour, returns, Thursday, November 19. Each show is hosted via @Niko Brim and starts at 6:19 PM EST– a homage to Juneteenth.

The last installment focused on the election and included Raymond Santana– a member of the Exonerated Five, Hector Flores of the band Las Cafeteras, voter advocate Onida Coward Mayers and recording artist MVXMILLI. Follow Niko Brim for more information.
