Sitting down with Adina Howard was much more then I imagined.  Just by talking with her I could feel how warm hearted, true, and genuine of a person she is. She’s a true gem, and a beautiful person inside and out.  I sat down with Adina after her performance in Roanoke, VA where she had the crowd screaming for more. She gave a performance that had everyone on their feet.

First off Adina Prestige would like to thank you for allowing us to interview you after your great performance tonight.

Are you working on any upcoming projects?

Right now my main focus is getting my education. I’m currently enrolled in culinary school, working on my culinary degree but I will be working on getting an album to my babies (fans) because that’s important.

 

I see you’ve been doing great in culinary school, because I’ve been seeing those A’s and B’s you’ve been posting on Facebook:

Look let me tell you, when I got a B, because my goal was to get all A’s, my goal was to be suma cum lade. When I got my first B, my heart hurt so bad so much so I was ready to cry, but magna cum lade is good, so right now I’m rocking A’s & B’s, and the experience is amazing, it’s absolutely amazing. I’m loving it.

Do you have a favorite dish that you love cooking:  

I don’t have a favorite dish but I love international cuisine

Are you thinking of collaborating with any Artist:   

Absolutely,  I know one artist that is totally under rated that I would love to work  with he’s a rapper that goes by the name Tech N9ne, I would also love to work with Tank, there are so many more out there that I would love to work with also, whether it be doing a duet together or working doing some productions or songwriting, the thing is if they would like to work with me, I would love to work with them, but it’s kind of difficult because a lot of times we artist have our egos, and most of us want to work with who’s hot at the time verses saying  let’s just go ahead because you’re a great artist and I’m a great artist too. The industry is about selling records, and they want to jump on the band wagon of who’s hot right now, and being that I’m kind of on the back burner and out of site out of mind, but in due season, and if not I’m alright cause I can hold it down on my own.

When you started in the industry was there any artist that inspired you the most:

So many. Prince and Madonna, those are my main two because of their brash forward and mentality of expressing themselves however they choose.

Of all your songs that you have recorded, which one is your favorite:

My favorite I don’t believe is on the album or one of the ones that people focus on. One of my favorites, actually I have four that I enjoy. One of the songs I wrote is called What Do I Do, it has that neo soul type of vibe to it. The other one that I wrote is called Missing You, it has a 50s jazz harmony type vibe. And then there a song on the Private Show album called I Forgive You. And the other song I love is called Too Close

You never said Freak Like Me

No I enjoy performing Freak Like Me for my fans because they love it, and I love to see them happy and getting up out their seats and dancing. That for me moves me when I sing it.

READ THE FULL INTERVIEW IN THE FALL ISSUE  AVAILABLE 10/21.

 All of us here at Prestige would like to thank Adina for taking time out to speak with us and we would like to say congratulations on her upcoming marriage to Mr. Sherman Jordan.

Lizzo Trying to Manifest Banging Drake After New Song Name-Drop

Published

on

Lizzo says she name-dropped Drake in her new song to turn the tables on an age-old trope of rappers doing the same for women — but it seems she’s actually trying to bang the dude.

During an interview with Zane Lowe, the singer mentioned Drake on her new song with Cardi B, “Rumors,” because she felt it’d be fun to give society a taste of its own medicine — and in this context, that means flipping the script on rappers/male musicians name-dropping fine women in their tunes.

If you didn’t hear the bar yet, it goes … “Last year, I thought I would losе it // Readin’ s*** on the internet // My smoothie cleanse and my diet // No, I ain’t f*** Drake yet (Ha).”

The Drake thing seems to have come out of left field … but Lizzo explained further in the ZL sit-down, jokingly saying she hasn’t quite been able to manifest some bedroom boom with Toronto’s Certified Lover Boy — even though it sounds like she’d love to take a dip.

All kidding aside, Lizzo says she included the line as a way to turn what rappers have often done in music — namely, name-dropping ladies/would-be sexual exploits — upside down on its head. It’s true … fellas have done that for a long time in the genre .

As far as their real-life relationship … Lizzo says she kinda knows Drake, and that he’s super cool.

Still, it seems she does, in fact, want some of what he’s got — at least based on her Twitter activity shortly after this interview aired. She tweeted right at Champagne Papi for the whole world to see, writing … “Hey big head @Drake.” Classic “wyd” vibes for modern dating.

Aubrey hasn’t publicly responded yet … but wouldn’t that be something if he did??? Unfortunately for her, he seems to have his hands full with
Johanna Leia and other things these days.

Boxer Gervonta Davis Involved in Minor Plane Crash, Documents Aftermath

Published

on

Gervonta Davis just, miraculously, walked away from a plane crash relatively unscathed — and it sounds like what’s hurting him the most in the aftermath are his feet … and his caboose.

The professional boxer went live Saturday to document a terrifying encounter he says he and his crew had just gone through after boarding a private jet … which apparently failed to properly take off and crash landed back down to the airport grounds it was trying to leave.

Thankfully, it doesn’t appear the aircraft got very far up before coming back down to Earth — because Gervonta and other passengers seemed more or less okay … with their health and bodies intact.

That’s not to say Gervonta wasn’t feeling some hurt afterwards — on his live feed, he noted that his booty was aching like no other … this while he wrapped his feet in gauze. He’s pretty jovial about the whole thing, which is great to see, but this could’ve easily been way worse.

Gervonta also was able to get some shots of the downed plane, and it sure looks like something went wrong internally. There were also fire engines that showed up on the scene to evaluate the damage and tend to anyone’s injuries. Again, though, most everyone seems to be fine … which is absolutely incredible, because it appears there were even children aboard, based on a photo Gervonta posted shortly before getting on his flight. His video doesn’t capture any kids, though.

It’s unclear what exactly caused the malfunction — but you can hear Gervonta and his friends speculate on what happened … seems like there might’ve been some overheating of some sort. They also appear to be discussing some of the flight maneuvers the pilot(s) were using in the air … and the group seems to think that may have attributed to it going down.

Stay tuned while we here at Prestige try to get a hold of Gervonta’s team for more answers.

Drake Takes Shot at Kanye in New Verse, Calls Him ‘Burnt Out’

Published

on

Drake is stirring the pot again on his rap beef with Kanye West — taking a new shot at the guy in a song he just dropped with Trippie Redd … and it might be the ultimate insult.

The rapper is featured on TR’s new track, “Betrayal,” and at one point in Drizzy’s verse, he brings up Mr. West by name … acknowledging that they are, indeed, still apparently beefing — while also going so far as to call Kanye “burnt out” … and noting it’s irrelevant to him.

Here’s how the Kanye bar goes … “All these fools I’m beefin’ that I barely know // Forty-five, forty-four (Burned out), let it go // Ye ain’t changin’ s*** for me, it’s set in stone.” He adds … “Rollin’ stones, heavy stones (PinkGrillz) // Precious stone, let me make my presence known.”

The “Ye” reference could possibly be interpreted as “they” or “you” — but based on Drake touching Kanye’s exact age (44) … it seems clear he meant the former with some clever word play. The folks over at Genius heard it too … they wrote out the lyric as “Ye.”

Now, for some analysis — as to why Drake is randomly bringing up Kanye again after years have passed since they beefed, with Pusha T in the mix, is anyone’s guess at this point.

However, some people have a theory on these old foes — there’s been speculation of late that Kanye is, perhaps, trying to set up his “Donda” release so that it lines up with Drake’s “Certified Lover Boy” album … which he’s on record as saying would be out by the end of summer at the latest. That’s just a few weeks away … and neither project has dropped.

There’s no evidence to prove it one way or another … but the fact that Kanye continues to delay the release date — with seemingly no end in sight — is curious in this context. That, coupled with the fact that Drake’s going after him anew, is even more eyebrow-raising.

In any case, we’re always here for some new beef. And, if it means more music from these two in the process … we’ll take it and then some. Ball’s in your court, Ye (we think).
