Last Minute Stocking Stuffers:: Sun Goddess Wines by. Mary J Blige x Raekwon "From Staircase to Stage" Memoir

Christmas is 5 days away!  If you have a wine or hiphop lover to gift, this post is for you.  Ms. Blige is sharing her world of wines as she teams up with renowned Fantinel Winery (Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy) for her collection, Sun Goddess Wines.  The collection features limited-edition Italian Pinot Grigio (Rosé) and Italian Sauvignon Blanc.  

“I’ve always loved the sun, and as a child I always tried to capture the sun’s warmth and energy. It was magical to me, and it’s with that spirit, that my mom began calling me “Sun Goddess.” 

You can purchase either wine or both at a Total Wine & More near you.  Also, check your local liquor stores that carry a nice wine selection.

The new york time side

We've learned a bit from the Wu-Tang saga hulu series, but now we are presented with Raekwon's own origin story.  The legendary Chef is always cooking up fire and this time... it's a memoir.  I read an excerpt of this via RollingStone of how Leonardo DiCaprio backed his idea for a Wu biopic, similar to that of N.W.A's Straight Outta Compton film.  However, RZA shot it down. 
It was said that RZA insisted Wu's story was too complex for a two-hour film and that a tv series was better suit.  Rae wasn't feeling it as the only one who would be making real money from the series would be RZA. 
This is just a summary.  The actual reading was more detailed and juicy.  320 pages of real, raw, rugged, and inspiration.  You can purchase this from Target, Walmart, Amazon, Barnes & Noble etc.  Even better, check out a local mom and pop book store to see if they have it, also.
