I felt like vibing to some 90’s Hip Hop. Until Next Time…

The Return of R&B Music

“Soul music touches people. We got back to just wanting to be ourselves, and I think once we stopped trying to compete, we eclipsed pop music.” – PJ Morton   If you’ve been following this blog then you know that my favorite genre of music happens to be R&B (Rhythm and Blues). And for the…

On November 8, 2011, the world lost a Hip Hop Icon. Dwight Arrington Myers, better known as Heavy D. My family (my mom especially) was a huge fan of his music, so it’s only right that I pay my respects on this day. Labeled Hip Hop’s original overweight lover, Heavy D’s career began in high…

On Saturday, August 25, 2001, the world lost an angel. Aaliyah Dana Haughton. For those of you who don’t know, Aaliyah was my baby/wifey/mother of my kids/everything. I remember seeing her for the first time in that iconic “One In A Million” video and immediately falling in love. Her melodies, style, and messages in her…

Afro-Caribbean Tunes

Greetings Everyone, In a previous post, I expressed my disappointment in the music that’s being marketed here in the United States; namely Hip Hop and Trap&B (formerly known as R&B). It feels like the industry’s primary goal nowadays is to promote degeneracy and socially engineer the masses, particularly young people, to take pride in it….

The Vault

Greetings All, I tend to go through cyclical moments of nostalgia where I thirst for pastime events and information. As I’ve mentioned before throughout this blog, I’m a student of Black history; not only when it comes to our Freedom struggles or African ancestry, but within the arts as well. I have a great deal…

Dream Fury Comics

Greetings All, Ever since I saw Frank Miller’s 2005 film Sin City, my interest in comic books has been somewhat of a roller coaster. I’ll try to start one but then stop, and I won’t pick it back up again until months later. Well, divine intervention recently led me to a webcomic that has me…

Afrobeat

Greetings Good People, In a previous post, I discussed why I no longer listen to the radio and why I have become more selective with the type of music that I choose to support; most people would call it mental digestion, I just call it being allergic to ignorance. However, one of my mentors from…
