Dear President Trump: I Don’t Have to Prove Anything to You

This is a guest post from writer May Amoyaw   On Friday, January 12, I came to work mad. I didn’t know how I was going to function that day because I was infuriated. I couldn’t believe what the President of the United States — a country of immigrants — had said. Many people were upset, but living in […]

Why Being From A Shithole Country Doesn’t Matter

It has been a week since reports came out that Donald Trump referred to immigrants of Haiti and African countries as being from “shithole” countries. And like many of the things Trump has said, there was a very calculated playbook utilized to deal with the comments. We have seen it time and time again from […]

Monkey See, Monkey Do

How much do I really care? Monday 5:42 am: my Amtrak train from Maryland departs on its way to New York Penn Station. 7:30 am: I wake up from sleeping on the train to find myself somewhere between Philadelphia and new Jersey I believe. I go back to sleep 8:47 am: my train is delayed, […]

Are Yall Not Tired Of Being Lied To?

One of my favorite rappers and the urban philosopher, Jay Wayne Jenkins aka Jeezy once stated, “if a nigga lie to your face, how you respect him.” That bar has always stuck with me for because it speaks to some of the most basic truths of life. One being respect and another integrity. While these […]

Regret. Pride. Stubborn.

Happy new year. Holidays. Merry Christmas. Happy Kwanzaa. Hanukkah. All that good stuff. Let’s talk about faith. Faith, to me, is believing in something you can’t validate but knowing it’s the right choice. Faith is going with ya “gut feeling”. Faith is going through the lows knowing the highs will follow. That gut feeling, that’s […]

The NFL Fucking Sucks

The NFL playoffs begin this weekend and while fans of both football and sports in general should be excited, I’m not. See, for the last three months I’ve tried to convince myself that the NFL doesn’t suck ass. This isn’t hyperbole either. This is the worst nfl product I can remember watching with my own […]

How Lena Dunham Made Odell Beckham Jr. A Misogynist And Herself A Victim

On Friday Lena Dunham decided to publish an interview with Amy Schumer and for some strange reason Dunham thought it would be wise to share a part of that interview where they talk about Odell Beckham Jr., New York Giants football player, ignoring her at the 2016 Met Ball. Jezebel has made our lives easier […]

All Colin Kaeperick Wants Is To Make America Great

It’s been a week and some change since Colin Kaepernick first took his public and peaceful stance against police brutality by not standing for the National Anthem. In the week since much has been written about Kaepernick and the statement he made, even on this website. The Kaepernick situation has taken another wacky turn. This […]

Cam Newton Can Never Say The Right Thing

Cam Newton can’t win the battle of public perception, on either side. Going into his sixth season as the Carolina Panthers quarterback, the biggest challenge of his career may be on the horizon, and it has nothing to do with football. But he should be use to that by now. For much of Cam Newton […]

Listen

Rest In Peace Fredo Santana

I never met Derrick Coleman better known to the world as Fredo Santana, and if we’re being fully transparent, I seldom gave his tracks much play. However, that doesn’t change his notable impact on the music that I regularly consume. Rewind back to 2012, when drill music was at its peak. Chief Keef is a […]

What A Time Pt. 2

We’re back. More interviews. More stories. More entertainment. If it’s too much? Enjoy anyway.  

City of Sorrow

Over the course of the last, damnnnn, at this point 7 years? Chicago has been on the forefront of America’s top tier cities. Whether it be for a negative or positive situation. You hear so much bad though, that you become desensitized to the reality of people’s environments. That’s why it’s always good & refreshing […]

Back In Eighth Grade

I can’t say I recall a time where a 16 17, 18 year old man child captivated so many children & adults, genuinely, at once. Youngboy NBA may be a true 1 of 1. Hailing from the infamous Baton Rogue, he wears pain on his face. Literally. Unstoppable & unbreakable, he dropped out of school […]

I Feel Like Shawdy Lo, I’m Da Man

Coming off a tremendously independent 2016, Young Dolph had entered 2017 scorching. So when all the Gotti riff-raff came about, I wasn’t shocked but like ‘ok!?’. But I’m not really here to talk about all that wild shit, more so to highlight how Dolph’s brand remained invincible throughout it all. Unfortunately shot at & shot […]

Real Ni**as Do Not Deserve P***y, Meaning…

Not a particular SZA follower, of course I was aware of some records & her brand, but was never fully drawn in. Comes 2016? Maybe earlyyyy 2017 the buzz for CTRL starts to bubble HEAVY. The following & loyalty was there, as it usually is with great entertaining female acts, but there was something different […]

Donald Trump Is American As It Gets

The reason many hate Donald Trump is not because he’s a bigot, racist or alleged sexual predator, it’s because he doesn’t go about it in the right way. Donald Trump didn’t just become the president on November 9th 2016, he became the President long before, when Americans all over the country decided he was a […]

What A Time

Getting to know the artist these days is very important for the consumer, or fan if you will. That’s why you see so many publications & platforms are able to report on the culture, or feel they can. Too many times are artist trash at expressing themselves or don’t want to give too much away. […]

Sunday Reflection: Close Out Remarks

As we close out the year, I’d like to take this time to reflect on how fast it passed. Time is of the essence & while the future is very important, milking the now is just as rich. Personally, it wasn’t the absolute best year I’ve experienced, but I believe I’m going into the new […]
