Fresh off the success of her album, The Light of the Sun, Jill Scott was banking that fans would ‘hear her call’ when she decided to heat up stages all across the country with Anthony Hamilton, Mint Condition and Doug E. Fresh for Jill Scott’s Summer Block Party.
When the tour hit her hometown of Philadelphia, you know it wasn’t anything but a party. Watch in the clip below as Doug E. Fresh provides the beat while Jill Scott freestyles for the audience, there’s also commentary and performance footage.
“I just cannot believe this is my life, this is what I get to do” - Jill Scott

This weekend Las Vegas welcomed Black entertainment’s A-list celebrities for Steve Harvey’s 9th Annual Hoodie Awards. For four days, Steve Harvey and his morning crew, Nephew Tommy, Shirley Strawberry and Carla Ferrell partied all weekend long, this morning Steve was so tired, he joked about not giving advice to the Strawberry Letter, LOL!
The weekend was filled with celebrity hosted events and famous faces to help celebrate winners of the Hoodie Awards. Kem, Jill Scott, and Kirk Franklin were part of the evening’s entertainment for the Hoodie Awards, which honored community favorites in categories from Best Church to Best BBQ, and my favorite Best Community Leader.
Other celebrities at this weekend’s events included Kevin Hart, Tank, Tichina Arnold, Letoya Luckett, Antonia Carter Wright, Toccara, Johnny Gill, Faith Evans, Frankie Beverly and Maze, Sheryl Underwood, Raphael Saadiq, MC Hammer and many more!

Flashback Friday :: @TheRealKiss “Why” featuring @HamiltonAnthony
Jadakiss released Why in 2004. The first time I heard it, I happened to be home in New York City; the airwaves were loving it back then and I still do. Seven years later… and still, there are unanswered questions.
It’s so official. Jill Scott has made my week. I’ve been missing my sister Queen, and now following the release of Shame with E-V-E and the A Group, she drops So in Love featuring the voice that is Anthony Hamilton!
I knew that today was going to be a good day *Ice Cube voice*! Light of the Sun in stores this summer! :)
Today, the R&B singer announced she was pregnant with a boy, and plans to name him Kingston! Source.
According to her web site, she is gearing up to release her new album, Underrated, sometime this year!
One of my favorite songs is her duet, More, with Anthony Hamilton from her 2005 album, Chapter 3: The Flesh; check it out here.
The first time I saw her live, she was opening for R. Kelly in Grand Rapids, Michigan, it was just after the release of her first album; I own every one of her LPs. Her vocals are nothing to be played with. If you are unfamiliar with her music, Google her.
Again, congratulations Syleena!
