Hey my fellow Sinsationalists,
This is Mr. Nkognito bringing you my pick for artist of the week. Bad Boy recording artist Janelle Monae has been killing the game with eclectic, smooth, funky vocals for years. She reminds me of Andre 3000. Her concerts are amazing and full of surprises. Here is a live performance of her singing "Smile". Brace yourself, and have a Kleenex or two handy.


Hump Day Headlines

April 28, 2010


Tyra Sanchez was crowned winner of "Rupaul's Drag Race". Personally if she didn't win I would have jumped out of the 5th floor window with concrete shoes on; just to add drama to the situation.

The balloon boy's parents who thought it was a great idea to fly a saucer like object in the air, and proclaim that their six year old son was inside; just to add drama to the situation. Now see adding drama to a situation can have its advantages and disadvantages. In this situation it back fired. The parents had to dish out an estimated $36,000.00 for the hoax. I bet they won't fly anymore balloons anytime soon.

On to happier news, remember little Elian Gonzalez, the little cuban boy who sailed into the hearts of Americans and just as quickly sailed out?, yeah him. Well, rumor has it that he has resurfaced again (this time not on a tiny water raft), rather he is a part of the Cuban armies dictatorship division. Thank God Cuba has free healthcare, because in America the only way we disappearing and reappearring is if we running from the cops. Psst!

Stay tuned for my favorite picks for artists you should be listening to to get you moments in your life where it seems like you're walking in quicksand. Well, until next time...stay blessed, keep your eyes on the prize, and win baby win!

April 26, 2010

Top of the morning to all of my fellow New Yorkans. This is the one and only Mr. Nkognito, lending a few words to the Sinsationalist.com blogspot. I would like to begin with a big shout out to Eury for allowing me to bless all of you with my words of wisdom. Sintationalist.com will prove to be an outlet for young entrepeneurs on the hunt for fame and fortune... not in that specific chronological order. Feel free to respond, request, criticize, communicate, enlighten, stimulate, engage, and incorporate all of your thoughts so that we will be able to convey to one another exactly, and precisely what is meant to be understood. I'll keep it short and sweet for the initial blog. However, stay tuned for the latest fashion, entertainment, music, and gossip news.

New Music.

Melanie Fiona- "Ay Yo"

This is the 4th single off of her studio album "The Bridge".  Ms. Fiona is a slept on very much by the music world, her music is very reminiscent of Lauryn circa '97, that good music.  Any ways take a listen:

Dope new artist, check out the site: bobatl.com && the album drops April 27th!

The Sinsational Series, No. 2

The Garden Collection only at H&M

"The Garden Collection by H&M is made with environmentally adapted materials like recycled polyester, organic cotton, and organic linen. By choosing these garments you contribute to a more sustainable world." [more]
I must say, I am really feeling this line, and I think the whole green- friendly fashion is very fashion forward and affordable for the frugalista!

Here are some tips when trying to achieve this look:
  1. Mixing patterns is a great idea for any season, but remember to keep the same general color palette to avoid looking too busy.
  2. Floral can be sexy, feminine, and edgy-- as long as you have the right accesories to wear with these peices.
  3. Be fearless! You might start a new trend.
  4. Recycle any old floral patterns you have at home, make it a DIY project-- Instant Vintage!
Hope this helped!

The Sinsational Series, No. 1

Drake/Lil Wayne\BirdMan- 4 My Town

Raheem Davaughn- I Don't Care

This blog spotlight goes to Mr. E Dot DizZy over at E Dot DizZy check him out.
His last post, titled "If it was this simple.." discusses how men and women should just keep it real with one another:
Hey my name is Mike. I think you cute as hell and I also think your home girl is cute as well so I am going to holla at you and if you don't give me the time of day I will try your friend. I kinda only want to have sex so I will only hit you up at night. I have a girlfriend but I keep that info hidden from you until we have sex IF we have sex but if we never get that close then I have nothing to lose. I don't have a car but the car I stunt in is my sisters. I drive it when I drop her off at work. I don't have a job and nor will I ever get one. I stay broke but I stunt as if I am the richest guy you have ever met. I am a want to be rapper. I have no good songs but I will always say I'm bout to make it. But aside from that, I'm cool... So.. Wassup?

Ke$ha is said to opening up for RiRi but there's no word yet if Nicki Minaj will be replaced ???


Young Mula BAY-B!

Here's the official video for Drake's first single "Over" off his Debut album "Thank Me Later"

The video was directed by Anthony Mandler and I like!

The album, orignally scheduled for a May release, has been pushed back to June 15tn.  Trying to build even more buzz Mr. Graham?  Either way, can't wait!

In other news, Young Money first Lady Ms. Nicki Minaj did a spread for XXL magazine.

She also passed up going on tour with Rihanna in order to complete her album, lets see if the extra time pays off.

Aspiring rapper, Keys, is still sending hate towards the Harajuku Barbie, even after Nicki has told her she will not respond...  I hate to add to the beef or give this chick anymore celebrity, but check it out lol

...she's prettier than I previously believed && she got bars*kanye shrug*

Tyga &&Chris Brown have a new song out titled "G Shxt"

do we like? Not his best vocal performance && I don't know how I feel about these 'singas turnt rappas' [Trey Songz, Tyrese, && now Brandy] but still love him....

Looks like Young Money is doing an ok job despite set backs [Kat Stacks, Weezy's imprisonment lol]

Sinationally yours,


Attention Whore.

April 5, 2010

'Memba Keys? No... click here.

Any ways, for those who have been questioning her skills her team has leaked a few tracks off her upcoming mix tape [self leaking is corny, in my humble opinion..]

...still sounds like a diss track to me, but hey what do I know?

Ironically enough, Ms Minaj released a video response to her haters...

I love how she says "I don't need to respond, I don't need it for publicity"...

Sinsationally yours,
