BGLU News- Toya

-Idris "Yes All That AND A British Accent" Elba now has a video out for his song "Private Garden". I'll be really honest with yall and say that I did not care at all what this sounded like. It's 3+ minutes of Idris Elba...on a beach...rockin' an ill two step. Now after the first two times I was able to focus and you know what? The song has a cool vibe and I'm diggin' it! I think it's great that he is able to express himself creatively in various ways. Did you know that he is also a DJ? Seriously what CAN'T Idris Elba do?

-File This Under "Toya's Future Aspirations": Aevan Dugas of New Orleans is now the record holder for the world's largest natural afro according to the Guiness Book of World Records. At a circumference of 4 ft 4 in, she can hide the world's smallest man in her fro! Dugas says that her afro is her "natural hairstyle and there can't be anything more beautiful than that." We completely agree. Go girl!

- Common can now add the title of author to his list of accomplishments. He recently penned a memoir entitled "One Day It Will All Make Sense" that talks about his days growing up in the South Side of Chicago and his rise as what many hail as the quintessential conscious rapper. There's also passages woven in from his mother as well as letters to the reader from Erykah Badu, Kanye West and his daughter. Seriously, how can you not love this dude?
