Rapper Foxy Brown recently posted a message about her Jingle Bels 2014 performance with Fabolus, Fat Joe, Lil’ Durk and Audrey Rose. I’m not sure if Bobby Shmurda will attend as scheduled, btu the performance will go on TODAY at 7:00 PM. Check ticketmasters.com for more details.
The reigning Queen of Love & Light that, in 2004, bestowed upon the world a quintessential collection of truths and melodies aptly entitled Complex Simplicity, is back with a pre-cursor to her upcoming album, and we’re in complete and utter infatuation. The Lioness, also known as Teedra Moses, dropped California Vibes EP this past Wednesday, not only as a gift to herself as she celebrated her birthday, but also as a gift to us substance-starved stans that can’t get enough of the good stuff….and Miss Moses is surely as good as it gets.
The five track piece, produced, in part, by Moses herself, opens with a vibrant presentation, echoing the title with a feel that is truly “sunny,” making even the gloomiest of wintery days eons brighter. The singer/songwriter/producer allows her voice to flow freely and assuredly, and is filled with the warmth and delight, and most importantly, the extreme authenticity she’s managed to seize and disperse with every project throughout her career. The EP keeps up with the precedence set in track one, sprinkling dynamism like pixie dust all over the record, enchanting the listeners ear with effervescence and soothing the soul with sincerity. Short but oh so sweet, California Vibes oozes “July in December,” toning down the brick east coast temps, and highlighting the abundant talent and truth that lies within this petite powerhouse.
California Vibes EP is available for streaming after the jump, and stay tuned to MusicXclusives for details on the release of her upcoming album, Cognac & Conversations.

Move over Teyana Taylor, there’s a new girl joining the team and her name is Kacy Hill.
