#BLACKGIRLMAGIC #BLACKGIRLSROCK - CARDI B On BILLBOARD MAG!!!



TRINI-DOMINICAN BRONX-born Rapper CARDI B covers The YEAR IN MUSIC 2017 Issue of BILLBOARD Magazine!!!


Here are some interview interludes:

On being the first FemCee to reach #1 on the BILLBOARD HOT 100 since LAURYN HILL in 1998:


“Lauryn Hill is like a goddess. For me to be in the same sentence with her, and one day a new female rapper to be in the same sentence with me...” 

CARDI B is very proud that her single, BODAK YELLOW, unseated TAYLOR SWIFT hit, LOOK What YOU MADE ME DO, to hit the top spot.


“I really like that song, but it do make me feel good because Taylor Swift is freaking Taylor Swift -- [being on top] is what she’s known for, and it felt like I was doing it for the culture.” 
On what motivates her to be such a hard worker;


“This is my work ethic: I do not want to raise my future kids where I was raised, and I know the only way to do it is working, working, working, working, working. I don’t want to live in a small Bronx apartment. I don’t want to have three kids that got to share one room. I don’t want my kids to go to school and get gang-affiliated. I don’t want to do welfare. I don’t.”

On still adjusting to stardom:


"When women come up to me like, ‘I am a freaking senator,’ or, ‘I’m a doctor.’ It’s like, ‘Damn, y’all like me? I look up to y’all! It’s not that people want to be like me, but some want to say the things I say and can’t, because they’re afraid. I say it for them.”

On dealing with the Bad Energy that seems to accompany fame:


“A lot of fake people, a lot of people throwing you hate, trying to discredit your work, a lot of men always talking shit, the drama, the pain, the tears, the sweat, the stress. It’s annoying. I suck it up. I cry sometimes. I get very upset.”

BUILDING UPON The GREAT AMERICAN ICON - The 2018 JEEP WRANGLER!!!

Image result for 2018 jeep wrangler

The mere mention of even tweaking the design of the Jeep Wrangler is sure to draw some attention, thanks to the immensity of the fanbase for the vehicle, an appeal that extends well beyond its popularity as a rugged, open-air SUV with insane off-road capabilities!!!

When news first broke that JEEP was revving up to introduce an entirely new model of its iconic off-roader, it sparked a lot of interest—along with a few concerns. After all, the Wrangler is considered the “King of the Hill” in the world of SUVs, which pretty much guarantees that talk of a new model will likely be met with a degree of skepticism.

With that said, the 2018 JEEP WRANGLER, is, without question, the most well-rounded vehicle among the long lineage of great open-air off-roaders that have worn the Jeep nameplate. Whether cruising the highway or climbing a seemingly impassable steep mass of rock on my off-road excursion in the 2018 model, the new Wrangler builds on everything fans have come to love about the iconic Jeep, just in a far more refined package.

Head of JEEP Design MARK ALLEN said;
 “I wanted to reinforce and enhance what’s there. There are so many things that are special about Wrangler that I don’t want to lose.”
The biggest buzz around the 2018 Wrangler, the first entirely new model in ten years, involves the new range of engine options, which now includes a four-cylinder turbo model, a V6-powered diesel, as well as a more enhanced version of the standard V6 with engine stop-start. Jeep also plans to introduce a plug-in hybrid model in the near future. But the new scope of powertrains, as impressive as they are, don’t even begin to tap the surface of what makes the new Jeep so special. 
One of the 2018 Wrangler’s most alluring elements is the design cues pulled from classic Jeeps like the CJ, detailed in features such as the front headlights, which now overlap into the outer slot of the vehicle’s signature seven-slot grille. 
The homage to some of the popular “old-school” Jeeps has been carried over in the new Wrangler’s cabin, too, with a number of heritage-inspired details mixed with features like a hand-wrapped instrument panel and accent stitching on the more premium Wrangler Sahara models. The latest reiteration of the American icon also now features a push-button starter, bigger storage areas and reclining rear seats, along with a host of new tech features, including an all-new Uconnect infotainment system that’s available with a mega 8.4-inch touch screen.

MARK ALLEN continued;
“It’s really grassroots. It’s me showing up with [concept] vehicles. People come up to me…and want to talk about the vehicles. We’ve been doing that for ten years, just listening and listening, wanting to get to this date where we actually make the new one.”
The most drool-worthy appeal of the 2018 Wrangler, which starts at roughly $28,000 for the base Sport model, comes to life on the open road when you find yourself growing more in awe of how smooth the new Jeep feels behind the wheel. The overall ride is a drastic improvement over the outgoing Wrangler (known as the JK), but probably far more advanced than the ride experience associated with the Jeep among those who haven’t been in one in years.
The Wrangler Unlimited is also now available with a one-touch power top for the canvas-equipped models, in the event you prefer not having to tackle the four-door Jeep’s 130-pound hardtop when you get an urge to be closer to nature. Still, the overall weight of the optional hard roof has been lightened by roughly 15 pounds, compared to the previous Wrangler. In addition, all the zippers on the removable side windows for the soft-tops have been swapped out for an easier to use sliding-track setup, which also makes the conversion to a convertible a lot easier. 
The steps it takes to fold down the Wrangler’s windshield have also been reduced to four bolts, making it simpler to enjoy the military-inspired feature. 
The thing that Jeep purists and thrill-seekers will appreciate most, however, is all the meticulous work that’s gone into improving the Wrangler’s off-road chops, which includes better ground clearance, unparalleled crawl ratio, and the ability to now trek through up to 30-inches of gushing water, making it the most capable model ever. The more terrain-ready Rubicon model also now comes with 33-inch tires standard, giving the rugged SUV more menacing, beast-like abilities when out on the trail.

RUSSELL WESTBROOK On ESPN MAG!!!




OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER Point Guard #0 RUSSELL WESTBROOK covers the new ALL I WANT For CHRISTMAS Is The NBA ISSUE of ESPN The MAGAZINE!!!


Here are some interview interludes:

ESPN: Has becoming a daddy changed you?
Russell Westbrook:
 I think the moment we knew we were having Noah was the moment it changed me. For the good, obviously. You start to think about the things that best benefit him. Everything in life revolves around him.
Do you look at your job differently now that you're a dad? Are some things less important, more important?
Yeah, you know what, it's a balance. I like to get to the gym early. I get here first and work on my game. But Noah wakes up really early, and I might have been gone on the road for six or seven days, and he hasn't seen me in a while. Then I'm staying at home. Which is OK, because that's more important to me than anything. That's just something I've had to get used to.
You're a pretty big routine guy. Has all this been hard?
For me, family's the most important thing. So regardless of if anybody needs anything, or anything happens, if something's going on in my family, I always put that first.
Important basketball question: How has your newfound dad strength been an advantage this season? Or has it kicked in yet you think?
You know what, I don't know if it has...
It looked to me like you came into training camp a little bigger, though.
Yeah, I definitely did. That was either dad strength or me being on my ass, one of the two. But I don't know if it's fully kicked in yet. My son only goes to a few games, but I feel like when he comes, I get excited that he's there. Although he was asleep yesterday.
You're a superhero to a lot of kids. They've got your jersey on, some try to dress like you, they look up to you. But as your son gets older, how do you think you'll balance that?
For me, I think it's more important to be a father to him rather than for him to look at me as a superhero for what I do. My dad's a superhero, but not because he plays basketball but because he's the best dad in the world. That's the thing I want to accomplish.
What does the word "legacy" mean to you? Is it what you accomplished on the basketball court or -- 
I think in life, I think there's so many great things you can do in the world to help other people, to impact different communities, to impact the world through basketball. This is a great platform, and I can use it to do other things, whether it's through education or Christmas or Thanksgiving, whatever it is.
Do you like being kind of a mysterious figure or do wish people had a better idea of what you're really like?
Yes and no. I want half and half. I only say that because I'm a private person, I don't like everybody in my business. But I also don't want people to just see me on the court and believe that's who I am. That's what happens to me all the time. So they think, 'Oh, Russell's an a-hole -- I don't know him but he looks like an a-hole.' Right? First, I'm not. People that know me, they'd look at you like you were crazy. Like, 'He's a what?' But the problem is, when people see me here, the stuff people hear on TV just from basketball, that's the only part that I sometimes try to give people. That's why social media, I think, is great for me. People get a chance to see what I do just on a normal basis, because they only see me on a basketball court.
