VISA And Friends...
Visa On The Radio
So what do you want to know? How this fairy tale started? I can lie to you and tell you that it all came easy and with the snap of my fingers but like I said thats a lie! Lets get straight to it! My name is Visa, your Night Show host from 6p-10p. Born and raised in the Bay Area, went to San Jose State and started my radio career in San Francisco at KYLD- WiLD 94.9 where I worked for free, interned, stickered stuff, did everything including cleaning the restrooms. From there I got the chance to be on air weekends at WiLD which was a dream come true since I grew up listening to the station. Few years later I got a call from Sam Diggedy asking if I wanted to come down to KDON and be the Night Show host and for the next 5 years held it down from 6p-10p! During this time I got the chance to be on the air in LA at KPWR, Las Vegas at KLUC, WiLD 106 in SLO and KMVQ in SF. Then October of 2011 I left KDON to further pursue my dreams of becoming an astronaut and explore space. I then went to Space Camp and on the day of my shuttle launch I asked the captain 2 vital things of importance that could be the deciding factor of my space career...1.Are there night clubs that play house music in space? and 2. Can I still wear hair gel under my space helmet? Few days later I left space camp angry that my two questions were followed with a NO. Soon after I remembered the people of the 831 and how I missed them and how I left the 6p-10p shift a ghost town. And a light bulp turned on, I must return to my people. I called upon my white horse jumped on it and ripped off my shirt and galloped in to the 831 like a valiant hero returning to his people. And now I am back on your radio 6p-10p every night. I know just a ho-hum story right?!
Nicki Minaj had her 31st birthday party at "Philippe" Restaurant in Beverly Hills. Nicky's birthday cake was of a pair of knockers that said ' Shake your Breasts Love Nicki'.
Rapper Macklemore says it feels "very surreal" that he and his partner, Ryan Lewis, have been nominated for seven awards at the upcoming Grammys.
Following the Grammy Nominations Concert Friday, Macklemore pointed out how far the duo has come in the past year and a half.
While the duo has been on the winners board at numerous awards ceremonies over the past year, Macklemore says picking up even one Grammy trophy would be a "lifelong achievement" for both he and Ryan Lewis. As they worked on their hit album The Heist -- which was nominated for Album of the Year -- Macklemore says neither of them had any idea that their hard work would result in multiple Grammy nods.
Until the January 26th Grammy Awards ceremony, the rapper says he and his partner will try to show gratitude to those fans who supported them over the past year.
During Friday's Grammy Nominations Concert, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis racked up nominations in three of the major categories, including Best New Artist and Song of the Year for their hit single "Same Love." They also received nods in the categories of Best Rap Album, Best Rap Song, Best Rap Performance and Best Music Video. Meantime, Jay Z is leading the nominations board with nine nods. Kendrick Lamar received seven nominations, while Drake landed five. The 56th Grammy Awards will be televised live on CBS from Los Angeles' Staples Center.

Being a musician is dangerous work - at least according to Kanye West.
In an interview with syndicated radio show Saturday Night Online Live with Romeo that aired over the weekend, Kanye compared his job to that of a police officer.
"I'm putting my life at risk... this is like being a police officer, or like war or something," Kanye told Saturday Night Online's Garrett. "You're literally going out to do your job every day knowing that something could happen to you."
He seems to be following in Tom Cruise's footsteps, who recently compared his job as an actor to being at war.
Other highlights from the interview:
Kanye equates himself with other great artists: "I'm great like Michaelangelo... Disney."
Kanye's response to people who don't appreciate his rants: "What you call a rant I call a visionary stream of consciousness."

A six-year-old boy was taken into the mountains to help a goatherd, but when the man died, the boy was left alone—until a mother wolf nosed some meat his way. So says Marcos Rodriguez Pantoja, now in his late 60s and long back among humans in the Spanish town of Rante. He was discovered at age 19 by police after years with the animals, he tells the BBC. It all started in a cave, where he was playing with wolf cubs. When the mother arrived with food, she ultimately shared it with the boy.
Saturday Paul Waker passed away following a tragic car accident. We all know him from the Fast And The Furious Movies. This guy was good dude, did a lot to help out people and was one of those celebrities that you never heard in the news for all the wrong reasons but for being a stand up guy. He's donated a ton of money to charities and he will be missed.
RZA from Wu Tang penned this track that night... heres his message
This song, entitled "Destiny Bends" was written last night after hearing the tragic news of the loss of a good man named Paul Walker. I met Paul on the set of the film Brick Mansion, where we talked, laughed, and exchanged ideas of life and fatherhood. I only knew him personally for less than a year, but we knew each other through our work and art. We saw in each other a kindred spirit of men coming from unlikely circumstances, and rising to be the light and beacon of our family and loved ones. Men who learned the joy and pains of love in life, and success, while coming to realize that nothing is more important than family, friendship, and the brotherhood of humanity. Millions of people get to know an artist or movie star through their work, but few are allowed to cross each others' paths and see through the veil of stardom and find the common denominator that we share. As all physical things will decay and wither away, film, art, and music remain longer than the vessel that delivered them. In this vein, the one thing we can't take away or give back is time. So, thus, time is the most precious gift. I dedicated my time to compose this song with my two sons and new friend Will Wells, who was kind enough to sing and perform it for me. We dedicate it to Paul Walker. A good man. We had plans to continue working with each other in the future. It seemed destined, but "destiny bends". *Note* This song is not for criticism, it's just a sketch demo. Please enjoy and reflect.
