On February 11, 2012, the world lost an icon. Whitney Houston. I don’t know too many people who didn’t love her, so it’s only right that I pay my respects on this day.

Lupe Fiasco

You would never know what you could ever be. If you never try, you would never see.   In a previous post, I paid homage to one of my favorite lyrical scholars—Nas. Listening to his music always makes me appreciate the art form that is Hip Hop. Artists like Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, and Drake…

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…
