early records

There was a trick to it. To feeling horrible without alerting Sportacus. 
It was all about walking that fine line between numbness and complete despair. 

From Amazing Spider-Man #130, 1974, by Gerry Conway, Ross Andru et al. While there is an album called “Aretha Sings the Blues,” it doesn’t look like that and it didn’t come out until 1985 (it’s a collection of her early Columbia recordings). This issue would have come out around the same time as her “Let Me In Your Life” album.

Jay-Z’s Streets is Watching compiles the music videos for tracks from his first two studio albums Reasonable Doubt and In My Lifetime, Vol. 1, using them to tell a semi-autobiographical story of Hov’s journey from the drug game to the rap game. “I didn’t live next to doctors and lawyers,” Jay-Z told MTV News at the film’s premiere, “they lived down the block. I lived next to hustlers, that’s the people that I grew up looking up to, that’s the thing that was most attainable to me… It’s material, but it’s the things I grew up seeing.”

Released in the United States on May 12, 1998, the Platinum-selling direct-to-video musical film had a budget of $320,000 and made over $10.7 million in videotape sales. In just over three months it sold over a million copies.

Streets is Watching was written by Hov and Dame Dash, and co-written and directed by frequent early Roc-A-Fella Records collaborator Abdul Malik Abbott. It was filmed over just seven days in Brooklyn, Manhattan and New Jersey in October 1997. The final film also contains Jay’s first two videos, “I Can’t Get Wit That” and “In My Lifetime,” which were both released before he signed a major label contract.

“[Jay-Z] and I got together and decided to put something out that portrayed his most graphic stories,“ Dame Dash said of the hour-long film that details the rapper’s struggle to find his place in the music world. "There is so much censorship in the rap game so, as a storyteller, this provided Jay-Z with an avenue to put out all the stuff that we couldn’t get on the air.” The movie would help to reinstate his street credibility after his shiny suit-influenced second album.

Def Jam Recordings wouldn’t fund the film due to the graphic content, so the Roc-A-Fella Records team came up with the budget themselves. When the label saw how serious the Roc were about the project, and saw how the final product come together successfully, they would later agree to chip in on a distribution deal. 

The film’s corresponding soundtrack complied tracks from artists such as Rell, Ja Rule, DMX, DJ Clue, Sauce Money, Noreaga, Christión and M.O.P., among others. It was released through Roc-A-Fella Records/Def Jam Recordings and peaked at #3 on Billboard’s “Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums” chart.

At the premiere at the Tribeca Screening Room in Manhattan on May 11, one fan’s review was captured by MTV: "Yo, this shit’s gonna get like four stars from the thugs and two from the parents. Yo, it needs to have like five or six warning labels on it!”

Streets is Watching was re-released on DVD on October 5, 2004 with an updated score and “lost video footage.” If you haven’t already, go pick yourself up a copy.

Requests:

  • Could you please do a threesome 5sos smut with ashton calum and the reader? The one u did with reader cal and Mikey was amazing!!! You are an amazing writer omfg!!!!

“We’ve got to get you ready baby” Calum mumbled against my lips. “Ashton will be home soon and he’s not in a good mood princess so you need to cheer him up”

“Why’s daddy Ash in a bad mood” I sighed. Calum’s hands slid down my waist as he nestled his head into my neck looking into the mirror. 

“He got told off at work, he was so pissed princess” 

“Is he going to punish me?” I whispered.

“Of course princess” Calum smirked, kissing lightly over my neck. This is how most Monday’s go. Calum would be home early from recording in the studio and Ashton would be pissed. You were there princess which meant each monday you had to pre-pare for them to come home. You honestly don’t remember how it started but you adored both men. They were both your daddy’s, Ash being the more kinky rough and Calum being more love rough. 

Calum had you in his and Ashton’s shared apartment and you were in Calum’s room. You were stood in black lace underwear with stockings. Calum had picked it out for today’s activities and to be honest the black lace was my favourite. Calum reached down for the cat ears and placed them on my head. I walked over to Calum’s dresser which had my make-up bag on it. I tend to stay here a lot, I practically live with them. I grabbed the pencil eyeliner and walked back over to the mirror. Cal was sat on the bed twirling around the black tail butt plug. I undid the lid of the eyeliner and flung my hair off my cheek. I drew three lines across my cheek giving me a wisker effect and did the same to my other cheek. I placed the eyeliner down and turned to look at Cal. The fur of the tail sliding around his fingers and he smirked at me. 

“C’mere baby girl, bring the lube” I grabbed the strawberry flavoured lube and walked over to Cal. I placed the lube on the bed and bent over Calum’s lap. He ran his fingers up my back, over my ass and he pulled my panties to the side. He poped open the lube and squirted some onto the butt plug, some of it dripping over my ass. He made sure the plug was covered in lube before sliding it down my ass crack, lathering it in the lube that had dripped. The tip of the plug, circled around my hole and Calum gently pushed it into me. I let out a hiss and clutched Calum’s jeans. 

“Atta girl” he said, sliding it in all the way. He gave a slap to my ass and pulled me up. I looked in the mirror and twirled around. I wiggled my ass and watched the tail sway. I let out a giggle and looked back at Calum who was staring at my ass.

“Daddy” I whined. Calum looked up at me and smirked. God he looked so good with his drop dead t-shirt and his black jeans. I walked over to him and he leant back onto the bed. I climbed onto his waist, my groin pressed against his crotch and stroked my hands up his arms. His beautiful massive arms, one covered in the most amazing art and the other just pure naked, just how I liked Calum overall. I tucked my hands under his t-shirt and stroked up his beautiful brown body. Calum didn’t have a six pack or anything like that, but the small tummy he had was such a turn on. I leant forward and kissed Calum’s collar bones.

“Baby, if Ashton walks in on this he’s not going to be happy” Calum whined, but stroking over my back. 

“So?” I smirked. I kissed up his body and he gave me a warning look. He licked over his lips as I got to his chin, kissing over it. His puppy brown eyes were watching my every move as I moved my lips towards his.

“You’re going to be in so much trouble” he whispered tilting his head to the side. His lips brushing against mine, instantly I felt myself getting wet. Not only by Calum’s words but I knew I’d be getting in trouble with Ashton. 

“I don’t care” I smiled, I sucked onto his bottom lip as his eyes bore into mine. The brown eyes almost a black colour. I licked over his lip and pulled onto it a few times. My hands were on his waist and I grinded onto him. He let out a growl, one of his hands that rested on the bed coming to my face and pushing me off him. He closed his eyes, licking over my open lips and entering his tongue into my mouth. I sucked onto it and he run his tongue over my teeth. He took his tongue out of my mouth and he kissed me. I looked up at him and he kissed me again smiling. I heard a cough come from the door and I turned my head. Ashton was stood at the door with his arm’s folded and glaring at me.

“Sorry am I interrupting something?” he growled, I quickly climbed off of Calum’s lap and stroked my hair down.

“I warned her” Calum said eyeing me down. I shot him a glare as he stood up. Ashton walked over to me, but I took a step back. The pattern followed until my back hit the wall. Ashton smirked and my breath hitched in my throat. He stood in front of me and slammed his hand against the wall next to me. 

“Don’t you fucking listen to Calum now sweetheart?” He groaned

“Of course I do” I smiled innocently

“Fucking liar” Calum spat and smiled at me wickedly. I shot a glare in his direction and Ashton’s face came closer to mine. He bit my jaw, I held onto my breath as his long fingers came up around my neck. He lightly tapped his fingers and his hand tightened. I felt his tongue poke out of his lips and he dragged it across my jaw. I reached down tugging on his shirt and lifting it over his head. My body shivered and Ashton’s other hand came down to my lace core. I stroked down Ashton’s chest and grabbed his bulge. 

“Such a naughty girl” Ashton growled against my neck. Ashton’s hands tore my lace panties in half and threw them either side. I let out a gasp as he pushed my hips into the wall the butt plug pushing further into my ass. I let out a wince and Ashton fake pouted at me. 

“Did that hurt baby?” Ashton pouted. I folded my arms against my chest and furrowed my eyebrows at him. He laughed and pushed me on the bed. I sat on the end of the bed as both boys took of there trousers. I reached around, pushing the butt plug that was slipping out back in, biting my lip. I looked back up and the boys were stood closer and there hips pressed together as there covered boners were in my face. I reached both my hands forward stroking over there bulges and licked my lips.

“Do you want our cocks princess?” Calum teased, running his finger through my hair. I nodded, squeezing there bulges and fluttering my eyelashes at them.

“Use your words”

“Yes daddy, I want your cocks” I moaned. Both men slipped there fingers under the waistband of there boxers and slid them down slowly. I didn’t know where to look because I was so close. I shuffled back and took in the sight. Boxers dropped to the floor and both dicks slapped up against there tummy’s. I swallowed thickly as Calum climbed on the bed. I leant back as he crawled next to me, sitting down stroking down my sides. Ashton came and sat the other side of me. 

“Take our cocks baby” Ashton husked out. I spun myself around, so I was facing them. I stroked my hand up both of there thighs and bit my lip. I spat onto the palm of my hands and rubbed them together. I first took Ashton’s cock into my hand giving it a pump before grasping Calum’s. I shuffled forward a bit so that I was equally in the middle jerking them off. They both let out grunts as I pulled equally on there cocks. I swiped the tip of there cocks, Calum’s letting out a small dribble of pre-cum. I took my thumb in my mouth, licking over Calum’s cum and staring into Calum’s brown eyes. The corners of his mouth curved up into a smile and I shut my eyes moaning. 

“Suck my cock princess” Ashton growled. I shook my head at Ashton and he furrowed his eyebrows and looked shocked as I bent towards Calum’s cock. I licked over Calum tip and smirked at Ashton. Calum let out a chuckle and I looked up at him. He was mouthing words to Ashton, who was not happy with me sucking on Calum’s cock, he roughly pulled onto my hair and I fell off the bed with Ashton catching me. He sat on the bed and bent me over his knee roughly.

“You fucking bad bad girl” Ashton hoarsely said. I giggled and Ashton’s hand came down onto my ass. I let out a moan and squeezed Ashton’s thigh.

“I want you too count pretty girl” Ashton grumbled. His hand came onto my other cheek, his fingers tapped against my ass as he waited for me to count.

“Two” I squeaked out as he stroked over my ass soothingly. I felt a small burning sensation but kept counting every time his hand slapped down. He spanked me a few more times and each time I let out a moan of a number. Each time the spanks got more harder with Ashton’s large hand covering the space of my ass. 

“Nine” I whimpered out, a pool of wetness dripping down my leg and onto Ashton’s thigh. I felt another presences behind me as Calum had the last spank, hitting me so hard my ass cheek bounce like jelly and it stung like a bitch.

“Ten” I whispered getting off Ashton’s lap and clutching my ass. Ashton stroked over it and bit down on my hip as I rested into him. I giggled as Ashton strict demand was slowly fading as his cock was leaking and he stroked over my back.

“You’re such a good girl taking them spankings Y/N.” Calum grinned, he walked over to me and placed his hands either side of my face and pulled me in for a kiss. I moaned onto his chapped lips as Ashton played with my tail. I stroked over Calum’s chest and wrapped my arms around his neck. I sucked onto his lip as Ashton thrusted the buttplug in and out of me. Ashton ran his fingers over my back and unclipped my bra. I dropped my arms from Calum’s neck and the bra fell off my arms. 

Calum lightly pushed me back onto the bed and I fell back with him, he had his tongue in my mouth as he sucked down on my lip. I crawled up the bed with him and threaded my hands through his hair. I felt his dick slide against my pussy as he hovered over me. My body shivered and I pushed my hip up into his beautiful long cock. He let out a laugh and wet my lips licking over them and leaving a trail of salvia as he pushed his head up.

“How do you want it princess?” he said whilst licking over his lips. I ran my thumb over his lips and he sucked onto it.

“Hands and knees, daddy” I moaned as his tongue licked up my thumb. 

“Dirty girl” Cal whispered pulling me up and flipping me over. Ashton came up in front of me as I looked up at him. I opened my mouth and stuck out my tongue he tapped his cock onto my tongue and licked the corner of his mouth. I felt Calum move my tail buttplug against my ass, resting it on my back. I sucked onto Ashton’s tip as they both roughly thrusted into me. I let out a choke around Ashton’s cock as he held my head. 

“Take it Y/N” Ash growled. I sucked onto Ashton’s thick cock as Calum started moving inside my pussy. I moaned around Ashton’s cock feeling Calum’s long smooth rub against my walls. Ashton pushed further down my throat and I coughed around him. He pulled out, a string of salvia attached to his cock, I gave a deep inhale and rested my head on his happy trail for a second whilst Calum moved inside me.

“You like my cock pounding into you Y/N?” Calum questioned. I whined pushing back onto him and licking over Ashton’s cock. Calum’s hand came slamming down on my ass and jolted forward head butting ashton’s lower abdomen. The sharp sting went through my body, I kissed over Ashton’s dick, trig to relive some of that tension. He grabbed a hold of his dick and slid it into my mouth and rotated his hips, lifting one of his legs so that one of his feet were flat against the bed. I swallowed around him feeling his pre-cum dribble down my chin. 

“Such a pretty toy for us to use” Ashton moaned. I clawed at his thighs as he let out several groans, I could tell he was close because his groans were getting more frequent and louder. I also felt his cock throb inside my mouth. I started deep throating him the tip of his cock hitting the back of my throat.

“I’m gonna- ohh” he moaned. Hot spurt of cum were realised down my throat and I swallowed it up tasting the salty flavour. Ashton pulled out of me and ran his fingers through my hair. I grinded back on Calum feeling my pussy quiver. 

“Fuck” I whimpered, sliding up and down Calum’s wet dick. Calum reached underneath me rubbing my clit in his fingers. I threw my head back and Calum smacked my ass. I rocked up and down onto Calum and I felt myself cum undone.

“Cum for your daddies Kitten” Ashton smirked. Calum relentlessly pounded into me and my pussy clenched around his dick as I came. I shut my eyes and fell forward into Ashton’s hands that were keeping me upright. My pussy shook and I whined out, Calum didn’t stop thrusting and my pussy was overly sensitive.

“Shit” I moaned into his hands. Ashton pulled my face up and kissed my lips as I moaned into his. Calum clutched my hips and roughly brought mine to his as he came inside me, his hips shaking. I pulled up and Calum’s dick slid out of me and kissed Ashton. 

“Lets get this make-up off of ya” Ashton smiled, grabbing my make-up wipes from the side.He pulled one out the packet and wiped it over my eyes and cheeks. The coldness making me cool down from how sweaty I actually was. I turned round on the bed and laid down, pushing my hair out of my face and Calum and Ashton laid down next to me. 

“You’re such a good Kitten Y/N” 

But does anyone notice?
But does anyone care?
And if I had the guts to put this to your head…
And would anything matter if you’re already dead?
And now should I be shocked by the last thing you said?
Before I pull this trigger,
Your eyes vacant and stained…
And in saying you loved me,
Made things harder at best,
And these words changing nothing
As your body remains,
And there’s no room in this hell,
There’s no room in the next,
And our memories defeat us,
And I’ll end this direst.

On this day in music history: January 19, 1974 - “I’ve Got To Use My Imagination” by Gladys Knight & The Pips hits #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart for 1 week, also peaking at #4 on the Hot 100 on the same date. Written by Gerry Goffin and Barry Goldberg, it is the sixth R&B chart topper for the Atlanta, GA family vocal group. After seven years with Motown Records, Gladys Knight & The Pips depart from the label just as they score one of their biggest hits with the classic “Neither One Of Us (Wants To Be The First To Say Goodbye)” (#1 R&B, #2 Pop) in early 1973. Buddah Records eagerly snaps up the group and puts them in the studio to work on their first album for the label. Among the people that then label president Neil Bogart has them collaborate with are songwriter and producers Kenny Kerner and Richie Wise. Best known for producing Kiss and The Stories chart topper “Brother Louie”, Kerner and Wise are initially concerned that the group might not want to work with them, being white and Jewish. This does not prove to be problem with Knight and Pips, who love their work on The Stories record. On the day they first meet with the producers, Gladys breaks the ice, exclaiming “hey, you’re white!!!” when they walk into the room, with everyone immediately dissolving into hysterical laughter. Among the dozens of songs reviewed as potential ones to record, they narrow it down to three songs they produce for the group. Among them are “I’ve Got To Use My Imagination” written by veteran songwriter Gerry Goffin (“Will You Love Me Tomorrow”, “The Locomotion”) and Barry Goldberg. The group love the song and agree that it should go on the album. The producers record a demo with singer Tasha Thomas (“Shoot Me (With Your Love)” performing the lead vocal as a guide. The basic track is recorded at Bell Sound Studios in New York City in mid 1973. Afterword, Kerner and Wise fly to Detroit to record Gladys and The Pips vocals on the track at Venture Sound Studios. Capturing Knight’s soulful and fiery lead and the Pips tight and precise harmonies, everyone agrees that it is a smash, and make it the title track of their first Buddah album “Imagination”. Released as the follow up to the classic “Midnight Train To Georgia” in November of 1973, “Imagination” also races up the R&B and pop charts simultaneously. “I’ve Got To Use My Imagination” gives Gladys Knight & The Pips their third million selling single in under a year, becoming one of their best known and loved songs, and a highlight of their live peformances for years after.  "I’ve Got To Use My Imagination" is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.
