Well I made the move! It’s been one huge whirlwind. On Thursday January 12th I gave birth to my daughter Kendall. Four weeks after my c-section I was packing my house to prepare for my new chapter in Atlanta. I learned a serious lesson in this experience…..NEVER EVER EVER EVER try to move cross country right after having a baby. I must have thought I was superwoman or something. A sister is worn OUT!!! loll
Nevertheless, I’m excited about this new phase in my career. Atlanta is a beauuuuutiful city with charming people. V103 is a Monster station so this is a big moment. I gotta thank everyone who came out to welcome me to ATL….
Brandy, Monica, Marsha Ambrosius, Musiq Soulchild, Rozanda “Chilli” Thomas, Keith Sweat, Nelly, Toya Wright, Trina Braxton, Waka Flaka Flame, Dr. Steven Perry, Nicole Paultre-Bell, Mona Scott Young and More lent their support for my midday radio show, “On Air With Egypt,”from 10 am- 2 pm.
Marsha Ambrosius called in to not only welcome but me, but revealed that she is hard at work on her new album, the follow up to the Grammy Nominated, “Late Nights Early Mornings.”
Reality TV Star/Author, Toya Wright, “called out” Grammy Award nominated Atlantic Records recording artist, Musiq Soulchild, for standing her up at her wedding to Memphitz Wright. She said Musiq was supposed to sing at the ceremony. I had Musiq give Toya a “make good” with an impromptu serenade live on the air of his smash record “Love.”
Music Superproducer Jazze Pha weighed in on who he thought should play the roles of Whitney Houston & Bobby Brown in a movie about their lives. He also played a new music exclusive from his new artist, Gasner Allen.
Keith Sweat and I led a conversation about President Obama’s recent visit to ATL and the racist bumper stickers that are now being sold in Obama’s name. “Don’t Re-NIG in 2012,” “Lincoln freed the slaves and now Obama is enslaving the free.”
Nelly & Chilli gave their opinions on a phenomenon that has been discussed at length: “Why women can’t seem to find Mr. Right in Atlanta.”
Trina Braxton, Demetria McKinney and I shared details about our childbirth stories. PUUUUUSSSSHHHHH!!! lolol…
Veteran music executive turned reality television producer, Mona Scott Young joined my show to discuss the upcoming season of “Love And Hip Hop: ATL.” She also confirmed that the original cast of “Love And Hip Hop” would have another season, but perhaps Chrissy would not be joining them. Mona eluded that Chrissy and Jim Jones were working on a spin off of the show. She also mentioned that she’d like to possibly do “Love And Hip Hop” Cali next!
Rap’s Most Buzzworthy Newcomer, Waka Flaka Flame, and I laughed about some of the jobs we had as teenagers. I revealed that I used to be Chuck E Cheese in high school…..now that everyone knows that I’ve gotta kill ya! hehehe
This past Thursday I was the host of an exclusive V-103 “Soul Sessions” performance and Q&A session with R&B stars, Brandy and Monica.
Nicole Paultre-Bell, fiance of slain New York City groom-to-be Sean Bell and Dr. Steven Perry, author and CNN education contributor, each called in to share their thoughts on the Trayvon Martin killing. And I witnessed the most amazing thing……6,000 students from Clark, Morehouse, Spellman and Georgia Tech rallied on the steps of Georgia Capital Building for the “I AM TRAYVON MARTIN” RALLY.
This is only the beginning…
“On Air With Egypt” can now be heard daily Monday-Friday from 10 am-2 pm on 103.5 FM in Atlanta and via the internet at www.V-103.com.
