14108_413933761498_1851604_n

Grammy Nominated artist/writer, Omniscient has been tremendously busy this year.  Rising to become one of Miami’s most established artists is not easy, yet Omniscient has achieved just that. He has earned the respect of his peers through his extensive resume which started off at local open-mics shows; shortly Hip hop began to take on a new form for OM, and it placed him as one of Miami’s most talked about performers.

In 2004, Omniscient started working on his crew, Flow Official’s E.P. Europe took notice that lead to a brief international tour, establishing great connections, Omniscient returned home with an even bigger vision of the future. However, in 2005 OM took a backseat when he was diagnosed with cancer.  He had to make a choice, knowing very well that time waits for no one, he placed everything on hold to undergo treatment, once he was given a clean bill of health he returned a year and a half later  going in full throttle.

2008 After connecting with Locos por Juana, OM, showcased in some well-respected venues, and festivals which later lead to a GRAMMY nomination. Hard work truly pays off.  His collaboration ‘La Verdad LP’ released by Universal/Machete was nominated for Best Latin/Alternative album of the year.   Omniscient has opened up for legendary artists such as Earth Wind & Fire, Gangstarr, Ludacris, Smiff & Wesson, Tego Calderon, The Roots and countless of other acts.  The man is a force to be reckoned with, and it comes as no surprise that he has pulled yet another successful year in 2013.

You can see OM performing live  on Saturday, August 17, 2013 when he opens up for Mobb Deep at the Stage  in Miami, tickets are on sale now. Also don’t forget to stop by his page to listen to his latest single out today called, “Grape Dutch”.

A New Kinda, John Mayer!

Monday’s Eye Candy- LL Cool J!

When I was growing up it was a must, that one of the men you should listen to before going to bed was always, LL Cool J. I have been an LL fan for as long as I can remember… not only did his music make its way into my boom box, but his body was plastered all over my bedroom walls. I remember hanging out with my girls in the park listening to ‘Bigger and Deffer’ if anyone was going to make you swoon over the boy in school it was sure to be, James Todd Smith.

Last night while watching him host the GRAMMYS, it took me back to hoop earrings, and sitting on the bus stops (well maybe not much as changed since the 90’s) however somethings have…somewhere down the line I had lost my passion for Hip Hop and R&B. But I guess your first crush will always be you first crush and damn…I haven’t had one of those in years.


GRAMMYs Take Over LA!

 

While the talk of the GRAMMYs was: “What is Lady Gaga wearing” I was looking forward to two things: John Mayer and Eminem.  Before you roll your eyes at me, like Marc Anthony did to JLo last night, let me explain.  I haven’t seen Mayer in five months, (NO) pictures on the web do NOT count, so it was nice seeing him again.  Moreover Eminem, wow…his performance last night left me so pumped up that I couldn’t even begin to explain how hard it was for me to fall asleep last night.  What an amazing show the GRAMMYs gave, hands down the best I have ever seen.  Here are my highlights of last night’s event. 

 

 

 Florence

 

Rihanna’s dress was amazing.

 

Easter Bunny came early this year and left a little Gaga on the red carpet. LOVE!

 

Cee Lo Green, decked out in full feather form, performed hit 'F--k You' with Gwyneth Paltrow.

Perez’s pet was let loose at the GRAMMYs

 

OMG! Best performance of the night! 

 

 Mayer looked so sweet last night (despite of the Depp comparisons he had been getting as of late, which I would like to know who the hater was that started that mess, because it’s getting OLD!) 

 

 

How awesome that Arcade Fire  The Suburbs won Album of the Year?!?

 

 

And the best dress goes to Kelly Osbourne who looked stunning  in a Tadashi Shoji’s, amazing!

 

What were yours?
