Anticipation

So I stalk a few my faves on Instagram and… So I watched the trailer, per their recommendation. And, my. god. It truly warmed my heart. Like I’ve never been so sprung for a Marvel movie in all my life. Like…. uuuuugh. All that melanin. Being bad bitches. Bravo. I want more. I just might…

Dammit, Yachty!

I really want to like ya boy, Yachty. After that whole Joe Budden situation and the way he handled it, I thought to myself “This is a cool ass dude.” If there’s one thing I admire, it’s composure. Check. From what I’ve seen of his interviews, he’s awkward as all hell, but it’s endearing. There’s really…

Give Em Their Roses

We’ve all heard the saying “Give them their roses while they’re living.” And shit, since I have this blog, I’d like to pay it forward. Y’all realize how many treasures we have in the world that we just take for granted? In honor of 4/20 the first to be honored in this series is none…

Cynthia is my Soul Mate

If you haven’t been watching Chewing Gum, I don’t know what you’re doing with your life. It’s so fucking funny. I take so much delight in knowing that I was on this shit before it got popping. I was watching season one on YouTube when it was still only on BBC programming. I feel like…

DAMN.

In the final analysis, this album knocks.

Guess Who’s Back?

In the treasured pantheon of black comedians, Dave Chappelle holds a special place in my heart. I used to watch Chappelle Show clips on YouTube when I was younger and I definitely remember watching Killing Them Softly on Comedy Central way waaaay past my bedtime. It’s still one of the funniest specials I’ve ever seen….

That Time of Year Again

I officially have one semester of college left. This is my last “summer break.” And in truth, I’m excited. Every student gets excited around this time of year. We can practically smell the summer breeze and the absence of copy paper and expo markers. But there lies one last hurdle before we can all yell,…

Oh, Aubrey

Sidebar: Drake is the spitting image of his father. I like(d) Drake. Like I don’t give a flying fuck about him being mainstream or pop or him having a ghost writer. Who really gives a fuck? He had his lil bops back when I was in high school and I thought, “I see you, nigga. Ole…

Endless Woman Crushes

2016 was the year of the Awkward Black Girl. Hands Down. Issa Rae is everything. Just Google her. I remember the ABG days as if they were yesterday and I’m extremely happy for everything she’s accomplished since then. Her HBO debut, Insecure, landed her a Golden Globe nomination and even though she didn’t get it,…

Chance is for the Children

The World’s Best Dad sat down with Complex to discuss some real shit earlier this week and as a Day 1 Chance the Rapper fan, I clung to every word with bated breath. For about 25 minutes Chance and @N_C_B waxed philosophic on the joys of fatherhood, his personal qualms with the music industry, and…
