The line has been in existence for a few years now but only on an independent level.

The first store in the Carol’s Daughter chain opened in Harlem this past week. About the venture Jay-Z says, “The sky is the limit, we plan to open stores in Atlanta, Washington DC and Philladelphia and we may even go as far as France someday anything can happen.”

And you thought award show season was done right (well, for black people atleast) ? Nope! Hip Hop Honors will air on VH-1 Monday night at 9 pm. Finally, an award show I probably will be able to stomach. I didn’t get to watch the first show when it initally aired in ’04 (was busy with school) but I did catch it this year. No one cooning on stage? I was impressed. Let’s just hope that they won’t disappoint this time around.
- The OG Mr. and Mrs. Smith (and I’m not talking about Jada and Will) are still together.
- Ice T and Coco Puffs looking a H.A.M. (hot ass mess) as usual.
- We’ll always love Big Poppa! B.I.G’s Mom and kids smile for the cameras. Doesn’t little Chris look so much like his Dad but only 50 times cuter?
- Salt ‘N’ Pepa look decent after all those years of pushing.
- Um, why did he decide to show up? I hope he’s not a presentor.
- Queen Latifah looks like she’s been to one too many cookouts.
- Snoop looks ‘blown’ as always.
- Okay I’m going to have a big problem with Cuba Gooding Jr. if he didn’t show up to help accept the award for Boyz N Da Hood. I know that nigga gave his ghetto pass back a long time ago but damn. But what’s up with the weird facial expressions? Looks like John had a stroke.
- Last but not least, En Vogue looks tired. Somebody please let them take a nap! I hope they don’t pull a Fugees at the BET Awards. They even looked tired at rehearsals. Lord help us.
