Flashback Who's That ???

'FirmBiz' by The Firm, blasted its way to the airways and clubs.  The hype was strong about rap trio.  It was an American hip hop supergroup that formed in New York City in 1996. It was created by rapper Nas, his manager Steve Stoute, producer Dr. Dre and production team the Trackmasters. The group was composed of East Coast-based rappers Nas, Foxy BrownAZ and Nature, who served as a replacement for Cormega after he was ousted from the group.

Unfortunately the group didn't live up to the initial hype and high expectations from fans upon their formation after collectively signing to Dr. Dre's Aftermath label, The Firm's debut album, The Album (1997), generated disappointing sales and generally negative criticism. The album, which featured predominant mafioso rap-themes and production from Dr. Dre and the Trackmasters, was criticized for its mainstream, pop-orientation. Their debut album was the group's only release and they disbanded in 1998 with each member continuing their solo careers.

Happy (69) Cher ...

Happy Birthday Cher ...

Goodbye 'Ol' Friend ...

The love affair started in 1982. Jumping a beat for a minute let's agree and acknowledge this fact Dave Letterman is the ONLY person that Johnny Carson wanted to replace him ... It was a blow to his ego, feeling second best, when NBC choose Jay Leno over him.  You can't keep a good man down, he left the network for CBS.

Tonight 'Late Night' Television marks the end of my childhood comfort zone.  We had Johnny Carson AND Dave Letterman, both had a certain flair, a vomfortabality about themselves.  They were the perfect tag team. 

David Michael Letterman was born April 12, 1947 he is an American television host, comedian, writer, producer, and actor.  His Late Show with David Letterman, broadcast on CBS. Letterman has been a fixture on late night television since the February 1, 1982, debut of Late Night with David Letterman on NBC.  In 2013, Letterman surpassed friend and mentor Johnny Carson as the longest-serving late night talk show host in TV history, at 31 years.  On April 3, 2014, Letterman announced he would retire in 2015.  CBS announced that Stephen Colbert, comedian, writer and host of Comedy Central's The Colbert Report since 2005, will take his place. 

We witnessed his quintuple by mass on 2000.  He dealt with personal controversy in front of the public eye,  On his October 1, 2009, show, Letterman announced that he had been the victim of a blackmail attempt by someone threatening to reveal that he had had sex with several of his female employees, and at the same time, he confirmed that he had had such relationships.  His intelligence always shone through, you always understood his opinion of his guests, if he liked you, you knew it, also if he didn't, you knew that too.  He was sharp, witty, uncanny, unapologetic, but above all HE WAS COOL!!! So long 'Ol' Comfort Food friend, it's best a therapeutic ride.  Take a bow ... Well Done!

Thank you Mr. Dave Letterman ...
