There is always a lot of talk about the lacefront wigs. I'm always seeing them everywhere I go and truthfully they are not impressing! I understand Beyonce and other celebs have been wearing them for years but since they've been popping in the black community lately they look like glued on helmets. Ladies would you rock a lacefront? And fellas how do you feel about them?

The checkpoints will begin at approximately 8:00 p.m. and terminate at approximately 1:00 a.m.
The checkpoints will be conducted along the 3300 Block of Mission Road and the 1700 Block of Hermitage Boulevard. The purpose of these checkpoints is to detect drivers who are too impaired to operate a motor vehicle, detect vehicles with faulty equipment, and those operating a vehicle without a driver license.
In 2008, Florida had 22,259 alcohol related crashes and a total of 1,169 alcohol related fatalities. Approximately one-third of all traffic fatalities were alcohol related.
These check points will be well marked by signage, marked patrol vehicles and uniformed officers. The checkpoints are designed to have minimal impact on traffic flow and to save lives.

Hot Yella is a fast rising name emerging from the Tallahassee area. Recent cosigns from DJs Storm and Supastar J Kwik have a lot of people checking for Yella, and her new song “Miss Me” is taking off in Florida.
By Ms. Rivercity
Introduce yourself and tell us how you started rapping.
Well, I started off singing. The first time I ever recorded anything I was in 7th grade. I actually rapped a little back then, but I started out singing. I also write music – I write R&B and Hip Hop records. I’m an artist on Triple Threat, so a lot of people know me for my tagline “Triple Threat.”
Where are you from originally?
I’m from Tallahassee. I was born in Florida. I’m also from Madison, Wisconsin and Las Vegas. I moved around a lot. In high school I went to three different schools. I moved around a lot in middle and elementary school too, so my versatility comes through in my music.
Do you still sing at all? Or are you strictly rapping now?
Yeah, I still sing on some of my hooks. I’m mostly rapping right now though. I’m making a lot of fun records, a lot of club records right now. That’s what I really love to do – make feel-good, happy music, stuff for the ladies. But I also write R&B records and sing.
Tell us about the “Miss Me” song you have buzzing on the net.“Miss Me” is out right now. I really wanna give a big shout out to Supastar J Kwik in Tallahasse, also all the DJs on Twitter, Facebook, and Myspace supporting the record. “Miss Me” is a song for the ladies. There’s a free download on HotYella.com.
What’s the situation with you and DJ Storm? Are you her artist or is she just helping you get your name out there?
Storm and I work together. I had been doing music for a while [before we linked up]. We worked in radio together. I interned at the station Blazin’ 102.3 for about a year and we became friends. She hosted my mixtape that I put out last June. I was gonna put out the mixtape anyway, and Storm was like, “I’m all about my ladies, chicks in charge.” So she wanted to host it. It turned out to be a real good mixtape. It’s called Life of a Triple Threat. You can also check that out on my website.
Are you doing another mixtape soon?
I’m working on singles right now. I’m coming out with something every couple months. Right now I got “Miss Me,” I got a freestyle to Jay-Z’s “On to the Next.” It got on a mixtape this week and “Miss Me” got on two mixtapes this week. I also got a new single coming out called “Cat Walk.”
You mentioned interning at the radio station. What were some things you learned in the internship that have helped with your music career?
It was a promotional internship and I also did a couple call-ins. It helped me. Radio and doing music is somewhat alike. You have to be good at networking and dealing with people. There’s a lot of good information you can learn in radio and bring that over into music.
It seems like Tallahassee would be a good market to gain a fanbase with all the college students living there. Is that an advantage for you?
Yeah, 100 percent. We have all these universities here. If you can’t touch the people here and make a mark in the music industry, then it’s probably gonna be way harder for you to do it in a different market. There’s so many students and people thirsty for entertainment and clubs.
As a representative for the ladies, what do you feel is missing from the game as far as that goes?
There’s an obvious lack of female artists. I think a lot of it has to do with how women present themselves as a business entity. A lot of men look at it as more of a business. But with Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj, people like that, I think it’s going to be changing soon. People are really thirsty to hear a good female artist. There’s gonna be more to come from “bad bitches.”
What else do you have in the works?
Look out for my new single and keep yourself updated on HotYella.com. That’s where everything is, links to my Myspace, Facebook, Twitter. For booking you can contact 26 Talent at 850-320-1030. All my ladies, keep your heads up and you’ll hear more to come. //

Lil Wayne, Rick Ross and Snoop Dogg will also take part in the Cartoon Network special.
With his penchant for top hats, we suppose this was inevitable: T-Pain is getting his own animated special.
On March 7, Cartoon Network's Adult Swim will premiere "Freaknik: The Musical," an hour-long extravaganza detailing a group of kids' quest to "successfully resurrect the spirit of Freaknik ... the biggest spring-break party known to man."
According to a Cartoon Network press release, T-Pain — who is also listed as an executive producer on the show — will voice "a party ghost" (no word on whether he'll use Auto-Tune). Other musicians lending their voices to "Freaknik" include Lil Wayne, Big Boi, Rick Ross, Kelis, Snoop Dogg, George Clinton and Bootsy Collins. Comedians Andy Samberg and Bill Hader also appear.
"Back in the '90s, Freaknik was Atlanta's version of the ultimate block party. It was Mardi Gras-meets-spring break, at your crazy cousin's bachelor party, and anything could happen," T-Pain said in a statement. "A decade later, I'm bringing it back for people like me, who didn't get to experience it the first time around. We've recreated Freaknik's vibe and energy with amazing animation, new music and an all-star cast of characters."
Pain isn't the first hip-hop star to team up with Cartoon Network. In 2006, Outkast's Andre 3000 produced "Class of 3000," an animated series set in Atlanta's Westley School of Performing Arts. And Danger Mouse and MF Doom released an album and EP — 2005's The Mouse and the Mask and '06's Occult Hymn — that featured beats taken from Adult Swim programming (and more than a few cameos by Adult Swim stars).
"Freaknik: The Musical" premieres March 7 at 11:30 p.m. on Cartoon Network.
