Jada Pinkett-Smith On Possibly Boycotting The Oscars Should Be Considered

OPINION-The Oscar nominations came in last week, and once again all over social media, people are upset that Blacks who contributed to the film industry every year are notably absent from any of the nominations. Despite the fact that I am not surprised the “Oscar Black Snub Part Infinite” has taken place yet again, it […]

Adele Paying Homage, May Force Nicki Minaj To Finally Rap Again

  OPINION- Sometimes artists bring out the best in other artists, just by paying homage to another. Hopefully, in the case of Adele who was rhyming to Nicki Minaj’s “Monster” verse (with some extraordinary skills and hand gestures and all to match) will have some long term effects aimed at Minaj. In all honesty, Minaj’s […]

  The New Year has taken shape and New Year resolutions have also been announced. Without further ado Happy New Year! I have a few resolutions, but this blog post isn’t about me on a personal level.

GoFundMe Is Becoming, The Internet Version of Panhandling

  OPINION- When I’m on social media it is for a few reasons, which are to post mainly an update to this blog, upload a few pictures, like everyone’s new baby pictures (I love the bundles of joy), interact with associates, friends and family. I also usually partake in some foolery and discussing series topics, […]

Sharanda Jones: Crack-Cocaine Sentencing Guidelines & Clemency

  OPINION- President Obama started his yearly Presidential tradition by granting clemency to those who are serving time in prison with emphasis on non-violent offenders. One particular case that I wasn’t aware of until now is Sharanda Jones, who was sentenced to life in prison for conspiracy to distribute crack-cocaine. Jones was a first time […]

Old School Video of The Week: Cheryl Lynn – “Encore”

The year was 1983 when Cheryl Lynn released the single, “Encore” off her album Preppie. The video has some racial overtones, so I wouldn’t take too much stock into the concept. Looking back at how the industry participates in this type of thing, I would bet Lynn wouldn’t even co-sign to the concept of this […]

My Contradictions With BET and R-Kelly…

OPINION – Confession time for me and it has a lot to do with my contradictions. I turned to BET to watch the 2015 Soul Train Music Awards.

Don’t Blame It on the Alcohol

Share

When you do stupid stuff under the influence of alcohol, don’t blame it on the alcohol—blame it on your own stupid self! Alcohol has to take the blame for far too many things that it is not causing. Alcohol does not make people do stupid things—people do stuff things because they want to do them. […]

Rappers Are Dying Young: Time To Focus On Preventive Healthcare

Share

OPINION- Another rapper has died who did not reach the age of 50. Sean Price, who I loved, from the rap duo Helter Skelter passed away in his sleep, recently. Rappers dying at a young age has been a reoccurring theme in the hip-hop community for quite some time, but it’s a cause for alarm. I […]
