I am not on Facebook too often but I definitely noticed a change within the posts I see and also the user interface…
Six years to this day I started Miss Dimplez.com, and never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that it would become something this big. Never did I imagine that I would be able to afford living on my own terms, in the city of my dreams, off of something I made in my freshman year college apartment.
Over the weekend, Trinidad Jame$ took to Arizona to headline Power 98.3‘s Turnt Up 1.0… In performing his single, “All Gold Everything”, Trinidad brought out Pedro, a 16 year old suffering from multiple sclerosis, who had waited outside of the venue for nearly 6 hours with hopes of running into Mr. Jame$.
#12For12: As an urban publication, Miss Dimplez.com has the pleasure of literally listening to almost every record released throughout the year… It would be in bad taste to not acknowledge the producers that made the records that were huge this year.

If there isn’t something I hate more than lists, it’s lists that reflect poorly on the work we as digital mavens deliver on the daily… No disrespect to The Source or their original Digital Power 30 list, but with the strategic placement of certain publications the validity and the weight is easily called to question. Without further adieu, here’s the REAL hip-hop/urban digital power 30 (in my opinion).
Common is one of my favorite performers of all time, so when he took to the Rock The Bells (2012) stage, in San Bernadino, I made sure my camera was in hand to catch the magic… Although I literally wound up taking hundreds of pictures, I narrowed it down to 4 of the best shots. Check out the images and the video of his full set after the break.
Last week, Big K.R.I.T. came to Arizona for the first time, and High Point Shoes (an Arizona Hip-hop boutique) held a private meet & greet for a few fans… I came on a mission. Determined to snag an interview with Big K.R.I.T. because he would be the perfect person to serve as the fourth installment of my Closed Sessions series.
It’s official, as predicted Rick Ross‘ God Forgives, I Don’t has leaked onto the internet… Now you won’t find the pirated link on Miss Dimplez.com, but you will find the answers to the questions you REALLY want to know. — What does this leak mean for Ross? Will this affect his sales? Does it leaking really matter?
