Tyler Best loves his family, his friends, and his life, and he plans on living it to the fullest after nearly losing it. But Tyler didn’t bank on running into a beautiful blond with blazing green eyes and temper to match his. Tyler always thought he wasn’t ready to settle down, but Dani and Noah make him rethink his playboy ways …Only just as these two start to build something, a shadow from Dani’s past comes back to haunt them.
But Tyler will do anything to keep her and Noah safe … anything.
UGH Gary says he doesn't know how to handle sharing his daughter with another guy but has been so insensitive to Amber when it came to her not knowing how to handle another woman being in Leah's life. Gary is such a fake ass
gary doesn't know how to share his daughter because he's been her primary care giver her entire life and her sole care giver for a long time. they are not parents of equal caliber and the situations aren't comparable imo.
We had the pleasure of speaking with MJ Parker. An upcoming rapper from the West Coast. He is one with the mic, get to know him in this IN DEPTH one on one interview below!
1.Who are you?
My birth name is Malcolm Jeffry Parker & I’m a VIRGO born on August 28th, 1991, the day before Michael Jackson, who was born the same year as my mom & born in the same ‘hood of Gary, Indiana as my mom & also died the day before my mom’s 51st birthday in 2009. So these circumstances coerced me to recognize my stage name as MJ Parker because it certainly is. I will say lyrically when I’m jotting my thoughts or rhymes I’m Malcolm Jeffry Parker, which is what I would consider my alter-ego, because my stage name MJ Parker is actually & really who I am. See, I was born as an alter-ego. When I release my thoughts from the paper onto the microphone whether in the studio or on stage I become who I really am & that’s MJ Parker.
2. What state are you from and what area do you rep?
I’m from Cali or as I say SoCali… From the Long Beach, Compton, & Torrance area & you’ll catch me on YouTube performing in downtown Los Angeles sooner than later.
3. Who are your biggest influences/inspirations?
Michael Jackson, Tupac, Notorious BIG, The Pharcyde, Naughty by Nature, The Fugees, Bone Thugz N Harmony, Common, Busta Rhymes, Ace Hood (who I hope hasn’t really retired from rap), Chip tha Ripper, GLC, Nas, Akala, Mobb Deep, MF Doom aka The SuperVillian, Q-Tip, Talib Kweli, The Roots, Mos Def, Gang Starr, Eric B. & Rakim, Goodie Mob, OutKast, Gil Scott Heron, Bobby Womack, J.Dilla, ohGr, Skinny Puppy, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Fugazi, Nirvana & the Foo Fighters & a lot of late 80s/90s punk or alternative rock. Also I’m deeply influenced & inspired by the instrumentals from my producers that I select to be songs I include on my LPs, mix-tapes or freestyles.
4. Why did you decide to make Hip-Hop music?
I found myself different from the world in a way that wasn’t typically different at a very young age when I was ten in 2002 & vented those sentiments into poetic diatribes about 21st century life for an African-American male like me through my high school years & then went to college for few & decided then to pursue a music career as a rapper when I got drawn to my favorite productions from a bunch of mystic, avant-garde hip hop beat tapes in the spring & summer of 2012. I was 20 & decided to make hip-hop music because I thought it needed a voice of ingenuity that wasn’t anchored in materialistic shit, yet still feeling doper than or as dope as the material shit. I decided to place my lyrical compositions on the microphone to distinctive productions in the summer of 2012 because I felt hip-hop needed songs with vitamins & minerals in them.
5. What makes you different than every other artist ?
Well my latest LP ‘Idiosyncratic Paradigm’ ( 6 of the 16 songs are available for streaming here: soundcloud.com/mjsharker2015/sets/idiosyncratic-paradigm It explores this notion & this question because it was early when I first premiered my music in Long Beach & LA, California that I was told by those who heard & appreciated my music, that I was pretty much different from EVERYONE, at least as an artist & emcee, for sure. The steps I take to find out how much I was different from every single person out there can be explored better through the lyrical musical compositions on my soundcloud page (https://soundcloud.com/mjsharker2015 ) instead of me ruminating & bragging how I’m just so different from everyone.

People, humans, & humans that once they cease to live have their souls inside of their physical bodies become “alien” can find me on these social & musical media outlets
