It’s Super Bowl time and I don’t know about ya’ll but the fam always wants me to make some finger food for the game. So here’s one that I plan to make that’s REALLY GOOD!
1 (16 oz.) can black beans (drained and rinsed)
1/2 can (16 oz.) pinto beans
2 tomatoes (chopped and seeded)
4 onions (sliced)
1 tbsp. minced garlic
1/4 cup fresh cilantro (chopped)
2 tsp. vegetable oil
2 tbsp. lime juice
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Drain excess liquid right before serving and transfer to a serving bowl. Serve.

The queen is definitely a business woman! I love that she sends out a positive and inspirational message to her thickettes.

So for those who don’t know, Lil Kim is pissed about how she was portrayed in the Notorious movie. Well first let me say this, if you haven’t seen the movie please go check it out. Even though there was certain parts that were kind of boring due to the fact that if you were already a Biggie fanÂ (like me), you already know about certain events that happened in his life so it was nothing new seeing it on screen. However this movie really took me back to the 90′s and how good music really was back then. Now I felt that the casting was great! All of the actors/actress did an excellent job with the script that they were given but there was one exception………….
The person that I felt didn’t do a great job with his character is the person who is talking ish about Lil Kim in the video below. Anthony Mackie played Tupac in the video and personally I thought he was just average. To me he was trying to damn hard and his role as Tupac was not believable.
Now check what he had to say about Lil Kim
(Shout out the VIV from Hip Hop Gossip Site (Where I saw this video))
Wow really Anthony? She’s not a human being? Do you even know Lil Kim? I personally don’t think Lil Kim is stirring stuff up just to get attention after seeing this movie I can see why she could feel that way.
Now if you NEVER seen any documentaries about Bigge or Kim you would think all BIG did was buy Kim a sandwich just to get into her legs told her what she wanted to hear and when he got married treated her like ish the whole entire time and Kim just continued to try to win Big’s heart. I don’t think this was the case. I just can’t see any female in her right mind (no matter how insecure she is) would continue to stay and sex a dude that doesn’t show her any love and constantly treats her like she’s nothing. Even though Kim was young I think she was getting mixed feelings from Big and she knew she deserved better but she was already in love.
This is just a common thing that ALL women have gone through so for Anthony to talk ish and disrespect her just shows that HIS PUNK A** is the one who wants the attention. Lil Kim has the fame that you haven’t reached Anthony and if she didn’t talk about you then keep her name out of your mouth.
Ugh I can’t stand men who disrespect women. Hasn’t Obama taught mofos anything yet? Speak on it thickettes. What are your thoughts?
The Queen of Soul’s Hollywood star was vandalized this week. The words “fur-hag” were tagged by a anti-fur protester. Rumor has it the anti-fur organization PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) is behind the bullsh*t.
Now don’t get me wrong,Â I am allÂ for people standing up for what they believe in but sometimes they take things too far! Defacing property with the words fur-hag is childish and solves nothing.Â
Hell they should know by now Aretha is a DIVA she will still rock her furs after this BS and she will probably start rocking them everyday just to piss them off!
It’s funny but I always seeÂ these anti-fur orgsÂ pick on people who they know won’t fight back. I dare them to come at Lil Kim, Diddy or Cam’ron! Ha!
And just in case somebody from PETA or another anti-fur orgÂ comes to my site and emails me about some BS. I DON’T WEAR FUR. I live in Cali so I clearly don’t need one but I still think you take things to damn far.
