Pass the Courvoisier…ROSE’????

For all those that like takin’ that YAK to the neck check out the new Courvoisier Rosé. It’s a smooth, refreshing taste with notes of blackberry, black currant, and a touch of cherry as well as vanilla, honey, and vine-peach flavors. Courvoisier Rosé is made from both Courvoisier cognac and premium French red wine grapes. Here’s a way for the wine lovers and cognac connoisseurs to kill 2 birds wit one stone all in the same bottle.
Courvoisier Rosé can also be enjoyed straight with no chaser.
If you haven’t tried cognac before this would be a great starting point.

One day it will all make sense…Common

Rapper ,Vegan, Actor, Activist and now Author…

Lonnie Rashid Lynn’s memoir will acquaint you with the beginnings of “Rash” which lead to Common Sense.. (for the og’s) then Common.

Read about his upbringing in Chitown with his mother, Dr.Mahalia Hines  and things that give him passion ..He will lament about life in Chicago, being raised without a father, the ladies, etc.. but it is not a boring read.

This Harper Collins/Astria,  published narrative will take us through Chicago back in the day, where a young Common hooked up with NOId and formed CDR . He breaks down the meanings behind songs and lyrics and basically presents his full story to the reader. It’s out now..

Kendrick Lamar………………… A.D.H.D…………….

I have been listening CONSTANTLY to ,  Mr. Lamar since like  May or June….

I am very impressed with this young man because I am very familiar with the area that he was raised in and the types of traps he could have fallen prey to.     These streets don’t usually produce young brothers this swift.  He is on some “other” and we dig it and bamboobanga keeps Section 80 on Rotation.. …

Two of my personal faves Rigamortus and Hiipower are classics … the entire joint is good.. ONE MO’ FOR THE WEST COAST …

If youhaven’t hollered at Section 80 yet.. “For real”.. (sucks teeth) Take it to Itunes.. do that ..

and now, Compton’s own...Kendrick Lamar.. follow him on Twitter,  in his Vashtie Kola directed video ….ADHD

Aaliyah Dana Haugton was not extra, just laid back and fun…  she was always.. COOL.. 10 years already ..DAMN!!

Either they don’t know… don’t show…..

Although we kee kee alot here at Bamboobanga420 , the world’s conditions do not fall short from our view.  It is an absolute travesty what is happening at the horn of Africa.  Somalia suffers , in the last 90 days , there has been a loss of over 29,000 children alone. Unfortunatley more losses are expected.

By all accounts, the famine is the worst humanitarian disaster to strike the region in decades, made all the more dire by Somalia’s isolation and inaccessibility to aid workers. “If this were Haiti, we would have dozens of people on the ground by now,” Eric James, an official with the American Refugee Committee, told the Times. “It is safe to say that many people are going to die as a result of little or no access.”
