Hey everybody! This is just a quick post of me gushing over what I experienced at the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. the other day. So, because my professor is the G.O.A.T.

Alright, here’s my review of Chris Brown’s new album, Heartbreak on a Full Moon… I haven’t listened to it yet.

It’s just too much (unless of … Continue reading To Listen or Not To Listen: Heartbreak on a Full Moon

Let’s start with Kari Faux… sis has this fun, down-to-earth … Continue reading Syd: Always Never Home Tour
I have been so behind with posting so, I’m playing catch up a bit and covering some past topics. So, last Monday on “Indigenous Peoples’ Day”, Vic Mensa came to Howard University for an informal Q&A in the historic Founders Library before his show at U Street Music Hall. Now, as great at my university is, it has been known to fall short at times … Continue reading Vic Mensa Visits The Mecca
The other day, I happened to see two tweets that I just couldn’t resist retweeting because they made me think about something that I often question: how have we allowed these basic rappers to become the face of hip-hip today? By the way, being a “rapper” does not mean that the music you make is “hip-hop,” but that’s a story for another day. One of … Continue reading We Get It. Now, Be Original.

Don’t Take It Personal… In the last few days, artists have just been winning left and right like it’s nothing! First off, my girl SZA announced that her song “Love Galore” from her debut album, CTRL, which just oozed with carefree black girl magic, went Platinum! https://instagram.com/p/BZkKpNKDdqz/ And speaking of “Love Galore,” SZA also blessed us with a video that just oozes ‘carefree black girl’ … Continue reading Last Week’s Winners!
