"No Love Remix" August Alsina feat. Nicki Minaj




Watching August Alsina evolve as an artist is truly a pleasure. The collaboration that we all have been waiting for is finally here. The “No Love Remix” feat Nicki Minaj is definitively a straight banger and Nicki Minaj just heightens the songs sexual, sensual and intoxicating nature. Minaj starts off singing on the track and then begins to rap; I am in love with her versatility and evolution as an artist as well.  The “No Love Remix” is a must listen, click to listen below.

Love +1? [Love Theory Series] Part 2

Wanna hear an oxymoron? Simple love

I've come to the conclusion that there is nothing simple about love. There's nothing simple about the feeling, nothing simple about the results, nothing simple about the explanation, and most definitely nothing simple when it involves a plus one. 

This is part two of the #loveTheorySeries and we hope you brought your calculators because, as if love itself isn't a messy enough equation, we just added another factor into the equation.... Something as simple, yet so complicated as PLUS ONE. 

Love by nature is not simple. You have to consider it's counterparts. There's love. And then there's loving someone and then, if you add the little word that makes a big difference, IN love, love for, etc. you get the picture. 



I heard that "all is fair in love and war" but someone forgot to mention the fine print. Someone forgot to shine light on the fact that 'all' is, in actuality not fair in love and war.

Okay, wait! Allow me to renege on that statement --I do think it's fair. I think that once you love someone you give them the power to hurt you, but you trust them enough not to. You accept their baggage while also hoping they have a little extra room for yours. It's like an unspoken contract.

We all know the crazy world we live in, the infinite possibilities of complete disaster and joy. While we desire the latter of the two, sometimes it doesn't work out that way. One of you breach the contract and now here comes the war, or as this column is ever-so-appropriately named, bullshit! 

So, did you ever go into a relationship with someone expecting a monogamous bond? Only to find out somewhere down the road that BeyoncĂ© in fact doesn't know much about ALGEBA because 1+1 doesn't equal 2. Well at least not in love and bullshit! 

1+1 usually equals: you + mate = love (+1) and by 1, I mean everything except for 1 matter. The possibilities are infinite. That +1 can be a secret about a weird foot fetish that changes your points of view on your mate. That +1 can be you/your mates career that is flooding the relationship. That +1 could be the church, a degree, the attitude, hurt, pain, previous love(s), fear, maybe even a whole other human! 



OK. Now we like to think of love as lightening. It doesn't hit the same place twice. It may come pretty close, but never a repeat attack. A person can love two things but never the same way, it's never equal.

Now aside of the infinite possibilities of +1 being other things, it has a great possibility to also be another human. Like the last series theory topic, "What is Love," the topic of being in love with more than one person is complex beyond measure.



Personally, no. I believe that you can love two people at once, but being in love is something that can't be shared, it can't be divided --at least not equally.

We hit the streets again to ask people their opinions about that +1 in relationships.

Before you watch the video, take a second to think about the same question we asked them: Is it possible to be in love with more than one person at once??

While you figure it out, check out what these people had to say!


Thought about it? Even if the question/answer was too much for you to capture in just one thought, we want to ask you one more question: If another human isn't the +1 in your relationship, what is?

It is important that you find that extra factor and FACTOR IT OUT! It may be insecurities from a past relationship, trust issues, an attitude problem, arrogance, pride; whatever it is, subtract it. 

P.S. Love is not easy. No matter how many +1s you subtract, there will be another +1 knocking at the door. FIGHT FOR WHAT YOU LOVE! Don't allow +1's at your table if it was only reserved for two!

We would love to know your response to the questions! feel free to comment below, DM us on IG/Twitter (divisionELITE), or email us (divisionELITE.org) and give us your two cents!

In the meantime, stay tuned for our third installment of the #LoveTheorySeries - She loves me, she loves me not on July 29th!!

What is love? [#LoveTheorySeries part 1]



Hey guys!

So we decided to converse with the big elephant in the room: love!

Love is such a consumingly broad subject so we decided to do a theory series.
This is part 1, WHAT IS LOVE?

Of course we can't begin to even scratch the surface of love amongst ourselves so we reached out to a few lovely supporters to see what their outlook on love is.

Before we get to the juicy part, we want you to open your minds to the idea of love.
We want you to ask yourselves what love means to YOU!
Now some of us have a greater understanding and acceptance than others. But regardless of your encounter with love, its an experience, YOUR experience, YOUR story and YOUR love.

When I think of love, I think of a trick question.
Seriously, how can I fit all of the emotions, feelings, and opinion about love into words?

Love is a drug --a strange addiction. Some may experience the placebo affect, feeling something that is nonexistent but going through the motions of a cure. And then there are some who experience that rehab love, that drunk in love-love, that gluttonous love. And then there are those who experience that tough love, the love that tarnishes, love that devalues, and love that hinders.

You would think love only pairs with positive connotation, and thats the thing about love, it pairs with life, and circumstances. There's no cookie cutter definition or feeling of love.

A few weeks ago I saw the movie "The Fault in our Stars" and there was a quote that stuck with me when I left the theatre, "some infinities are bigger than other infinities." That quote only begins to define what love is to me.

In between the infinities of love do lie bigger infinities --an infinite amount of feeling, emotion, and growth; so infinite that no matter who you ask, its not likely that you will get the same triplicate of answers describing love. That's the cool thing about love, no matter what your definition is, it is something that you've felt, something that we've all felt in our own time.


We asked 23 people at random what 3 words they use to describe love, these are their answers:

-Faithfulness, completion, and sacrifice
-Pain, gain, and trust
-Selfless, patient, and unconditional
-Personal, universal, and unconditional
-GOD IS LOVE
-Determined, optimistic, and caring
-Married with children
-Indescribable, Uncontrollable, and complexed
-Pain, happiness, and powerful
-Altruist, unpredictable, Ecstasy
-Amazing, intriguing, and powerful
-Inconvenient, everlasting, and unexplainable
-Passion, protection, and comfort
-Lifelong, passionate, and indescribable
-Eternal, Agape, and God
-Deceit, Hurt, and forced
-Pure, raw, and true
-Rare, comforting, and selfless
-Powerless, fearless, and vulnerable
-Intimate, personal, and overwhelming
-Honesty, trust, and security
-Gentle, patient, and consistent
-First Corinthians, thirteen


WOW! See? Just within those 23 different responses lie different emotion, different stories, but they are all someones love.

Have you thought about what love means to you yet?
While you continue to gather your thoughts, check out our first short video to the #LoveTheorySeries!





Have you thought about what love means to YOU YET?? We want to know your thoughts because of course this is a subject that can go on for days and we are sure we missed your point of view!

Email us, comment below, DM us, whatever your heart desires and let us know your 3 words to describe love, and what love means to you.

Keep an eye open for part two: Love +1 (July 16th)!

Meek Mill Calls out Wale

All was well in the music world and then Meek Mill went from 0 to 100...real quick.


As some know, Meek Mill has an LP dropping, "Dreams Worth More Than Money," Sept. 9.

 Well it seems as if he broadcasts animosity against fellow MMG-mate Wale via Twitter.
He tweeted: "Wale just aint gone tweet a thing about my album.... He's been hating on me long time now ...don't even text me cornball! #UNOTMMG"
WHOA!
So what happened? Long story short... or short story even shorter:
There was heavy promotion for DWMTM via social media --including a release date. Meek Mill and the rest of MMG followed suit, except, according to Meek's tweets, Wale. So our question is, was there 'animosity' or ill-feelings toward Wale prior to him not helping promote Meek's LP? Or is Meek just super upset over the lack of a few tweets??
We hope it's something more because Meek went as far as to hashtag #UNOTMMG. 

Let's hope this doesn't result in industry beef. Especially within the same 'family'.

Check out Meek's Tweets:
