Old Fire Chunk Still not Hard to Catch

first_imgA. Ronald Freeman Jr., commonly known as Mighty Blow (formerly Nigga Blow) is one of the most talked about Liberian Hip-Hop/ Hip-Co rappers.Over the years, Mighty Blow has enlightened his audience with hit tracks such as “Old Fire Chunk (not hard to catch)” and “Strange Food In My Eating Pan”, gaining him a popularity and where he finds himself today as a international superstar/entertainer.Despite the many rumors and questions surrounding his music career and where he stands today in Liberia’s limitless entertainment industry, LIB LIFE caught up with the admired musician to find out the truth and to set the record straight once and for all about his career.LIB LIFE: Wow, I don’t know what to call you because I heard something about a name change, what’s up with that? (Laughter)Blow: Back in the days I was Nigga blow, but I changed it to Mighty Blow because of my manager. He told me to change it because of the general understanding that only a black man can call a black man “nigga”. It happened in Cellcom where I found white people calling me Nigga Blow and I understood what he was trying to say.LIB LIFE: Tell us things about Mighty Blow that we don’t know?Blow:  I was born and raised in Monrovia. I’m a Kpelle/Kru man from Bong County; my mother is a Kru woman while my father is a Kpelle man.  Back in the days in high school, I played football up to second division and thought that I would be a football player, but… (he laughs).  I’ve got skills up till now and plan on organizing a game with my crew Hip-Co All Stars and The State Runners Empire so people can see their musicians playing. From football I started break-dancing.  The dancing evolved into the whole entertainment business of music. I danced for 3-4 years.LIB LIFE: Wow, you’ve been entertaining people for quite awhile now, isn’t that so?Blow: Yes. Back in the day, even while I was playing football I used to like music. I’d rap at college shows imitating Tupac and Busta Rhymes, and it had everyone calling me Busta Rhymes in school. I listened to Tupac and learned his songs word for word. I used to listen to Biggie and Jay-Z, who’s my favorite rapper.LIB LIFE: With that said, how did you finally get noticed as an artist and into the recording studio?Blow: While dancing, a friend of mine named Ragga E, who works at Red Eyez Entertainment, heard me rapping freestyle one day and asked me if I had ever rapped in front of a crowd before. And I told him no. He actually inspired me to get into rap business because he said that I had a good voice.In that period of time, LIB records CEO Sammy Bokai Jr. came from London and opened auditions for fellas to come out and justify.  He wanted to form LIB records, and that’s how Ragga E took me to there and the CEO liked my voice. And I started to do my thing.LIB LIFE: I heard that your first track was prepared under troubling circumstances. Tell us about that.Blow: The 1st song I did was called “Tribute”. Our CEO along with George Weah took us to Sierra Leone (Salone) to record right after the war was over. While going to Salone, we had a serious accident and lost one of our friends named Tim. When we came back to Liberia we did a tribute song. After that incident, our CEO went back to London and LIB records split and everyone went solo.LIB LIFE: After going solo, what undertakings did you make?Blow: Well, “Strange Food In My Eating Pan” was my first single and also my very first hit song, which put me on the map. The track basically described me leaving my house with out giving my girl any food money, and then coming back home to meet chicken – chicken thigh in my pan – strange food in my eating pan. Where did she get it from because I wasn’t able to leave her with any money? (Laughter)LIB LIFE: That was your first hit single, but tell us a little about your second hit and how it led you to signing a contract with Cellcom?Blow: “Old Fire Trunk” made me popular and that’s when I signed a one-year contract with Cellcom.LIB LIFE: Must have been nice working with a GSM company, can you describe what it was like working with Cellcom?Blow: Working with Cellcom was straight up. But I only had problems with my own producers and manager.LIB LIFE: Rumor has it that Cellcom terminated your contract due to problems. Can you tell me about that?Blow: People contradicted the story saying that Blow had a problem with Cellcom. The truth is that people misunderstood this. I was with Cellcom and everything was fine. I signed a US$45,000 contract, was given a Nissan Pathfinder and we started operating. I used to travel and come back. The problem was with my manager and producer; they took a lot of money from me. Money I was to get from Cellcom. When they took the money and ran away with it, I went to Cellcom to ask about it when they told me they had already paid my manager. More contradictions came when one day I was in the crib when I heard my song off my album that I did with Cellcom being played by one of these street music vendors passing by. When I checked, I noticed that he had a duplicate CD of my stuff, and when I asked him about it, he confessed that he got it from the money exchange boys selling in front of Cellcom.  LIB LIFE: That really must have made you upset?Blow: I went to the boys that change money in front of Cellcom and met the duplicates there. I took the police for them and it had nothing to do with Cellcom. It was that scene that made people to contradict the story. In fact, my contract with Cellcom was already over by then, but I still used to visit the CEO and eat my small thing here and there. We were still cool.LIB LIFE: You just answered a major question that the Liberian community has always wanted to ask you. Now that we have that out of the way, what’s your relationship with Cellcom like now?Blow: I came recently and the CEO called me and told me to come over and sign another one-year contract and I’ve started doing the promotions and stuff. Cellcom is doing well for me, sponsoring me, taking care of my promotions, house, family and car.LIB LIFE: Now that you have again secured yourself and your career, what projects are you taking on right now?Blow: I’ve got my Hip-Hop and Hip-Co album coming out. Liberians only know me as a Hip-Co artist because of my two hit tracks that were done in Colloquia. But when it comes to Hip-Hop, I blow it as well. Liberia is my country and that’s why I do Hip-Co, but I want LIB to know that I can change my style and that’s why I decided to come out with a Hip-Hop album.LIB LIFE: That’s great and I wish you success in that. With the growing population of artists in the industry, do you think it will be a challenge to create a whole new image of your rap style?Blow: I just have to step up my game because in every area of life there is competition. When you look at music on the other hand, there is a lot of competition because if you sit there and don’t put any music out there and someone else does, people are going to listen to that other artist. As for me, I feel I have to work; being the best isn’t all about telling yourself you’re the best, you have to work towards it.LIB LIFE: Before we go, would you like to share anything with your fans?Blow: In the next five years I want to see myself hitting the world, not just Liberia, but internationally. I want to drop a song that will hit the whole market, that’s my focus right now. Keep on loving me because I am doing everything to strengthen my game to build up fire!Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Zidane says pursuit of history galvanises Real Madrid

first_img“What drives this club is to try to do the maximum, all of us, to regret nothing,” he said.Real is at home on Tuesday and leads 2-1 after the away leg.“If we execute well with desire and motivation we have a great chance of reaching our objective.”Sergio Ramos, the Real captain, added that the chance to play in a third final was “reward for all our work, our perseverance”.“We are making seem easy what is practically impossible. No one has won two in a row,” he said, which hasn’t happened since 1990, before the competition was enlarged switched a to a group format. “What motivates us, is to keep breaking records and winning titles.“One of the strengths of Real is that opponents are not all the same and we study them carefully to learn how to hurt them,” Ramos explained.“At 1-1 in the first leg, Bayern had to chase a victory and we knew we could do damage on the conter-attack. We would have liked to score more, but the result was good. The scenario tomorrow is very similar, the other team must overcome a bad result and we will try to exploit that. I hope we stay committed in defence.”While Ramos, the defender, emphasised defence, his boss talked of attack.“The key is to try to win the match,” Zidane said. “Not to retreat and not to do anything stupid. We must try to score quickly.“Bayern will not be worried,” he said. “They will come to play without inhibitions. We must be ready.– ‘We have not won anything yet’ –While Real are still chasing the Champions League, their chief Spanish rival, Barcelona, completed the Spanish domestic double on Sunday, clinching the league title to go with their cup victory.Sergio Ramos and Zidane were asked which achievement was greater.“Barcelona deserved to be a champion, we have to congratulate them, nothing more,” said Zidane. “We have not won anything yet, they have won two trophies and have had a great season. We do not minimise what they have done, but what interests us is what we’re going to do.”Ramos could not resist a dig.“Barca have done the double and that’s a good year for them,” he said. “But winning the Champions League, that’s worth two titles, maybe more.”Against Leganes on Saturday, Zidane coached his 200th match (57 with Real’s reserves and 143 in charge of the club).He was asked how has he improved.“Of course I have a little more experience, but experience of big moments, because I experienced them last year,” he said. “There are tons of coaches more competent than I am. But I have experience of being there and of the changing room.”Ramos said he had no choice but to sound as if he was giving in to flattery.“The results speak for themselves,” he said. “He is a great coach, we are proud that he is captaining this ship.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Zinedine Zidane said on Monday that Real will try to score quickly against Bayern © AFP / GABRIEL BOUYSMADRID, Spain, Apr 30 – The possibility of reaching a third straight Champions League final is “galvanising” Real Madrid for their semi-final second leg against Bayern Munich, Zinedine Zidane told a press conference on Monday.“It’s an extra motivation,” the Real Madrid coach said.last_img read more

Stars go glam

first_imgMoments later, a divine Hayden Panettiere of “Heroes” came floating by with her flowing Marc Bouwer empire-waisted gown, frayed at the seams and embellished at the cleavage with a sparkling brooch. Her hair was rolled back in a loose bun, showing off her H. Stern clustered diamond earrings. “Ugly Betty” star America Ferrera looked stunning in a strapless electric blue gown with a jeweled waist. Judith Light, a frequent guest star on “Ugly Betty,” wore H. Stern jewelry around her neck in the form of a vine-and-leaf-inspired necklace in diamonds and other precious stones. It was a perfect complement to her strapless Morgane Le Fay princess gown in off-white, a color trend adopted by a great many on the carpet, including Anna Paquin of the HBO miniseries “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee” and Jamie-Lynn Sigler of “The Sopranos.” Jeweled tones, from reds to purples, were another fashion favorite, including “Heroes” star Ali Larter, who called her strapless goddess gown by Reem Acra “a little sliver of nothing.” Sally Field wore a simple magenta strapless gown by Valentino and another “Ugly Betty” cast member, Ashley Jensen, bragged about her fuchsia gown that she said, “Nicole Miller made just for me.” And Julia Louis-Dreyfus of “The New Adventures of Old Christine” looked delicious in freshly picked plum. Speaking of sweet, did everybody get a glimpse at “Don’t Forget the Lyrics” host Wayne Brady’s daughter, Maile? The 4 1/2-year-old clutched tightly to her father’s hand and scowled at reporters from behind her long, straight hair. When a publicist handed her a coat, the girl put it over her head and walked on.

Hearings offer some insight into Guantanamo detainees

first_imgSAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – The evidence against the Kazakh apple seller showed he had been captured by the Taliban and forced to work as a cook. In fact, the man told his U.S. military tribunal, he was only a cook’s helper, and had never heard of al-Qaida or the Taliban until he was kidnapped and conscripted by Afghanistan’s former hard-line Islamic regime. “I never had a weapon. I never carried a weapon with me and I’ve never been in any kind of armed fight,” he said in one of hundreds of military hearings to determine whether detainees at the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay are being properly held without charges as “enemy combatants.” These and other details emerging from about 5,000 pages of transcripts released Friday suggest the Bush administration has cast a wide net in its War on Terror but often come up empty. “They’re all armed,” said John Pike, director of GlobalSecurity.org, a military policy think tank in Alexandria, Va. Mohammed Gul, from Afghanistan’s eastern Khost province, told his military tribunal at Guantanamo that he was captured at his home. A Kalashnikov assault rifle was found in the house, but Gul insisted he was just a farmer and not linked to forces attacking U.S. and coalition troops. The Bush administration scoffs at such claims of innocence. “They’re bomb-makers,” Vice President Dick Cheney said recently. “They’re facilitators of terror. They’re members of al-Qaida and the Taliban. If you let them out, they’ll go back to trying to kill Americans.” Only a few detainees openly acknowledge taking up arms against the United States. One is Abdul Hakim Bukhary of Saudi Arabia, who told his tribunal he fought in Afghanistan during the 1980s against occupying Soviet troops, then returned to battle invading U.S. forces after the Sept. 11 attacks. Bukhary said he had a change of heart in American custody and now would support democracy. There is no indication from the transcript whether his tribunal believed him. Other detainees were nabbed far from any battlefield. Bisher al-Rawi, a Londoner with wealthy Iraqi and Jordanian parents, was arrested in Gambia. He was accused of harboring radical Jordanian cleric Abu Qatada while in London. Videotapes of Qatada’s sermons were found in a Hamburg, Germany, apartment used by three of the Sept. 11 hijackers. The United States classified al-Rawi as an “enemy combatant,” a status the Bush administration says deprives detainees of rights afforded by the Geneva Conventions to prisoners of war. Al-Rawi said he was innocent and that he had helped MI5, Britain’s domestic spying agency, keep tabs on the Muslim community in London. There is no indication from the transcripts whether Gul, Bukhary and al-Rawi or any of the other hundreds of detainees who went through “enemy combatant” hearings remain in custody at Guantanamo Bay. The U.S. military will not comment on specific cases. What the documents do suggest is that in hearing after hearing, the unclassified evidence seems frustratingly inconclusive. Witnesses are not reachable, testimony may be twisted and unanswerable questions – such as whether a detainee would attack the United States if released – are left hanging. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Captured in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 terror attacks, the apple seller and dozens more men are identified for the first time in Guantanamo Bay transcripts the Pentagon delivered to The Associated Press. People from many walks of life were captured and brought to the prison at the U.S. naval base in eastern Cuba, where most remain held without charges. They range from peasants to millionaires, from illiterate villagers to college graduates. In a typical guerrilla war, conventional forces struggle to distinguish friend from foe. But the U.S. war against terrorism is unique. It is being fought across the globe, against enemies operating from the shadows of the Hindu Kush mountains in Afghanistan to the alleyways of Islamabad to the neighborhoods of London; Madrid, Spain; and Jakarta, Indonesia. In Afghanistan, men often carry a rifle. Unless they are caught red-handed firing on U.S. troops, it is hard to tell the terrorists from the farmers. last_img read more

first_img 3 3 3 Stoke 0-3 WiganWill Grigg bagged a brace to inspire Wigan to a dominant 3-0 win away at struggling 10-man Stoke.Grigg opened the scoring for the Latics three minutes before the half hour on a rain-sodden night in Staffordshire, converting Gavin Massey’s pinpoint cross.Massey got on the scoresheet himself shortly after, showing excellent determination to burst down the right and double the visitors’ advantage.Grigg notched his second from 12 yards on 57 minutes to complete a memorable away performance after referee John Brooks awarded a penalty following Joe Allen’s foul on Nick Powell.Late into the fixture, centre-back Ashley Williams was sent off for a second yellow card for bringing down substitute Josh Windass, compounding the misery which was felt around most of the bet365 Stadium.

Blackburn 2-2 ReadingCharlie Mulgrew netted a brace of second-half penalties as Blackburn mounted an impressive comeback to draw 2-2 with Reading and preserve their unbeaten start to the Sky Bet Championship season.Reading looked to be heading for their first win this term after a dominant first-half in which Jon Dadi Bodvarsson notched a brace of his own with a deft 12th-minute finish and an emphatic second midway through the half – the Royals’ first away league goals since March.They will be aggrieved not to have taken the points and captain Paul McShane was chief culprit, twice committing needless fouls in the area. Both times, Mulgrew tucked away penalties.It means Rovers stay unbeaten in the league at home since September 2017. Reading, meanwhile, have still not tasted victory on the road since January, and their difficult start to the season continues.Norwich 2-0 PrestonNorwich finally got their SkyBet Championship season up and running as two late goals earned them a flattering 2-0 victory over Preston at Carrow Road.Finnish striker Teemu Pukki fired home his third goal for his new club to break the deadlock with just 10 minutes remaining – and the points were quickly wrapped up with a 25-yard stunner from Alex Tettey six minutes later.The result was tough on the visitors, who had more than their fair share of the play, but it was the Canaries who came out on top to secure their first league win after taking just one point from their opening three fixtures.
