First & foremost I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the fact that Geisha presented this wonderful idea back in 2013! I wonder why they didn’t make her a cast member 🤔

I was scrolling down my TL and I saw a post by Bobby Lytes making the announcement about the Inaugural Season of Love & Hip Hop Miami. I promptly reposted the post on @thechunkychickz IG and I’m glad that I did, because it looks like Bobby edited his original post but we still have ours up on our page check it out!

With that being said I present to you the cast of Love & Hip Hop Miami sans Lattie, Latta and Geisha…

Ok, so first of all kudos to Monami Entertainment I think they did a great job with the casting… I don’t know some of these people but so far it looks like Trick Daddy, Trina, Gunplay, Miami Tip, Bobby Lytes, Veronica Vega, & Shay Johnson will be on the show. I can’t wait to see what Mr. Hoe problems ain’t no problems aka Miami’s very own JT Money of the Poison Clan has to say about his sons relationship with Bobby Lytes! We interviewed Bobby Lytes on the Chunky Chickz Radio Show a few months back and he would not spill the beans about this relationship.  I can’t wait to see this show.

2 LIVE CREW FRESH KIDD ICE DEAD AT 53

2 live crew

Gah! My childhood… *tears*

The world is mourning the loss of one of the originators of Miami Hip Hop Christopher “Fresh Kid Ice” Wong Won, the co-founder of Miami’s legendary rap group passed away yesterday at the age of 53.

His passing was confirmed by the groups manager and member Luther “Luke” Campbell on twitter…

Born in Trinidad and Tobago and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Fresh Kid Ice formed 2 Live Crew with Mr. Mixx and Amazing Vee in 1984 while serving in the Air Force stationed in Riverside, California. After releasing their first single “Revelation,” 2 Live Crew realized the reach of their single in Florida and permanently relocated to Miami soon afterward. Once Vee dropped out, Fresh Kid Ice, a.k.a. the Chinaman, became the only rapper on records like “Throw the D” and “Ghetto Bass,” until Brother Marquis and Uncle Luke joined the squad.

In 1986, 2 Live Crew dropped their debut album The 2 Live Crew Is What We Are, which reached gold status. They followed up with their sophomore LP Move Somethin’ and their most popular yet controversial album As Nasty As They Wanna Be, which featured their smash hit, “Me So Horny.” Although it was the first album to be labeled legally obscene by the U.S. government, the album went double platinum, was No. 29 on the Billboard 200, and No. 3 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.

RIP to a real Miami legend, Fresh Ice Kid.

An Open Letter From Empress: Don’t Ask My Neighbor…

 

Don’t ask my neighbor….

Here’s the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth… I needed a break!!! With all of the additions, subtractions, gossip, twit beef, she said, she lied, she using your name to get venues… Wolves in sheep’s clothing, my immaturity, my ability to see the good in all people and soo much more… I had to take some time away for myself, my family and my mental well being.

The Chunky Chickz Story from the beginning…

The whole reason I started Chunky Chickz was because I wanted to dance again. Having studied various forms of dance since the age of 4 and being afforded the opportunity to travel because of my talent…. I wanted to continue doing the thing that I loved most. So I contacted my best friend who at the time was Co-Captain of the Miami Heat Dancers and we did a casting call for plus size dancers. Needless to say I was disappointed at the outcome and I made the decision to go it alone and I began to promote events with Jay from Dime Breed Ent./Zoe Pound. After a while I noticed that Miami didn’t have any all female promotional groups, so I conducted a casting call looking for confident, attractive plus size women with little to no experience who were looking to make an impact in Miami with my movement. It may have been naive of me to think that people wouldn’t link with me without having their own motives. I mean we all have personal goals. What I didn’t know or understand at that time was the length people would go to, to sully your name and gain your trust only to turn around and slander you to get ahead. Long story short, DJ Affect saw one of the CC fliers on the beach he called us, we went in for a meeting and Chunky Chickz Radio was born, first we were on w305.com, then 89.1fm, then Street Connect Radio. As most of you may know during that time we experienced a lot of changes and now I am the last Chunky Chick standing. Many former members have broken off and started their own thing and I wish them the best. I believe everything happens for a reason and I am grateful for all of the lessons I learned from this whole experience. But, life goes on!

 

With that said it’s still all about the Chunky Chickz Movement stay tuned and you’ll see just what I mean…

 

This letter is not about placing blame… I’m sure you’ve heard several versions of the story, but you’ve never heard mine, & you never will… Not my style!

 

Its a new day… I took a much needed break and I’m back armed with some new chit!

 

First and foremost Chunky Chickz Radio is coming back to a station near you, official announcement and launch COMING SOON!

 

Miami Renaissance is on the way as well (whole new concept)…

 

ChunkyChickzWorld.com is still popping so stop by and take a look see at what I’ve done with the place.

 

Oh and we will be hosting a casting call in Atlanta for what will be called the A-Team in the next few weeks. S/O to my girl Britt Bratt!!!

 

& I’ve been working on the new concept for CC and I promise not to disappoint! Just taking it back to the basics for me… Doing everything that I love, and staying far away from the negative energy.

 

Lastly, I have to thank my right hand man for sticking in there with me @haztv love you boo! As well as the select few that have reached out to me to check on me, and yell at me when they noticed that I fell back! I can’t forget my two boos @DJLuckyC & Bree-Not @iAMSABRINA who always have my back… & I can’t forget to mention an old friend who has really been the catalyst behind my new focus & outlook on things… Preciate you Mayne!!!

& S/O to my Street Connect DJ fam & 365Voice.com !!!

 

I said all of that to say, I’m back bishes!!! So hit me up… ((for interviews, website features, promotions, hosting gigs, & performance opportunities)) I’m ready to work! It takes a village so you know what that means,  if I can help let me know.

At the end of the day, they can take everything away from you. But one thing they can never take away from you is your mind, that gift that God gave you called Talent & your creativity. If you did it once you can do it again, and again & AGAIN!” – My Mother 😀
