Los es Fuego

I’ve never heard him come wack on a track. For me, that’s major. There are  few emcee’s that I can put into this category. He is one of them. Los Debes or “Debo” is an artist. He is an indie artist whose lyrical genius can rival most of the commercial bullshit that is clogging most of black radio’s airwaves. He is a part of Atlanta’s “Nawfside” movement. He’s reppin’ his family, S.T.P “The Brand”, and […]

COON SHOES: Flyy like a Slave.

When I first seen the pictures of the new “Slave Adidas” last week, all I could do is shake my head and sigh….. Sooooo…… Adidas somehow got the idea that putting some flavored shackles on your ankles is a hot fashion commodity. After never having lived as a real slave, I guess they thought that people wanted to know what it felt like to be a slave with fashion sense. Nothing says, “fly” like tacky […]

Happy Juneteenth!!!! –Blaq Independence Day

It’s a day that is said to be commemorated in at least 41 of the 50 states. Oddly enough, I tend to come across more people that have never heard of it. Juneteenth or  June 19, 1865 Was the day that the slaves in Texas got word that they were free. Abraham Lincoln had signed the Emancipation Proclamation  on September 22, 1862. It didn’t completely go into affect until January 1, 1863. It took over […]

The Tyler Perry Effect…

Over the past decade, it’s safe to say that there has been a whole lot of shifting going on with Black Hollywood. I remember watching the 90’s rebirth of black sitcoms and the silver-screen seemed to be LOADED with hip hop classics like, “Juice” and “Belly” premiering. The 90’s  was a further ground breaking time for black actors, directors,  and productions teams. Both Spike Lee and John Singleton openly showed the world their artistic visions. […]

Kardashian Kulture

It’s hard enough keeping up with food inflation, Georgia Power, and bullshit legislation, but the Kardashians? Why have we been giving 2 shits about this family? The last name only got to be  SUPER popular in 2007 when Kim Kardashian made her sex-tape debut starring her and her then boyfriend, Ray J. I didn’t figure out until later on that  she is supposed to be famous because of her father Robert Kardashian. Robert Kardashian was […]

Zombies: A scare tactic

When I first heard of this cannibalism incident in Florida I thought, “They’re here” I literally got an eerie feeling when I read the details to this story. In South Florida A man was found eating the face of a homeless man. Mind you, he was naked and had already raped the poor  guy. The cops had to shoot him several times in order to kill him because he could not be subdued and he […]

Octomom: America’s Train wreck

Why are we watching this horrible downfall? What are we getting out of it? It’s like watching a train wreck. When Nadya Suleman first shocked the world with her pregnancy of octuplets  in 2009. Not only was this woman carrying 8 babies, she already had 6 kids waiting on her  at the house. To add insult to injury, there is no father in the situation. She is a single parent by choice. She conceived all […]
