Oh, Chrisette

Charlemagne the God now holds the blue ribbon for Biggest Troll. I’m just now getting around to watching Chrisette Michelle on The Breakfast Club and damn that shit was painful. Now I’ve only heard this woman’s name in passing these past few weeks. I don’t listen to her music. She’s never given me a reason…

2017 Oscars not-so-white

The oscar noms are in and bitch, we outchea! Anyone who knows me knows i stan for Ava DuVernay. Aside from the fact that, as a filmmaker, her work is some of my favorite, she’s also just a gem of a human being. And even though they snubbed her with Selma back in 2013, she’s…

Inaguration Day Blues

I choose to pretend that none of this is actually happening. I’m sure that’ll bite me in the ass at some point, but hopefully, I can get away with it for as long as I can. Donald Trump has been inaugurated as the 45th president of the u.s. and honestly I throw up in my…

Michael Eric Dyson was on TBC

… and I’m grateful to Dr. Dyson’s mouth that DJ Envy’s time on the mic was minimal. The Breakfast Club is my top pick for urban radio listening. Though Envy is hella dumb and I still haven’t figured out what Angela Yee’s function is, Charlemagne usually seems to pull off some decent interviews – especially given a particularly impressive…

Your PEOTUS, ladies and gents

So, Donald Trump allegedly likes golden showers and I can’t shake the feeling that stories like this are going to be a staple in the Trump administration. You know, this bullshit doesn’t shock me in the slightest. In fact, I’m glad this is happening. I think it’s indicative of the fall of an empire, the…

*takes earbud out* what

Podcasts help me keep my brain busy when I’m waisting time. And I also like hearing intelligent takes on what’s going on in the world. I’m carrying these with me into the new year. Insightful, funny, relatable shit, these are my favorite podcasts. The Combat Jack Show I’m a huge hip hop head. It’s never…

All Praise to da Migos

I paid $1.50 for chicken nuggets at burger king – 10 of em, got some dank ass weeds, and made it home just in time to see the Golden Globes. And I’m glad I was listening to the voice that reminded me to tune in on sunday night Tracee Ellis-Ross took best comedy actress at…

i like it better wit a dip

When I say I’m proud of this nigga like he was my own brother… Hometown hero, Kway, is here to give you a taste of some deep south flavor with his new mixtape and I promise you’ve never heard anything like it. Twelve16 This is not a review, but rather an appreciation post. My fav…

Privy to the BS

Disclaimer: No shade is at all intended toward the people in their (early) 20s that jump the broom. Sometimes, it works and it’s cute. I see former classmates on Facebook with their rings and their smiles and their Cancun cruises. One of my former teachers married her high school sweetheart and after a decade they’re…

Arbitrary Bullshit

Another year down and the general feeling of being ill-equipped to deal with life still lingers even though I’m almost 21. When you’re younger 21 seemed so adult but must of us just out here ruining our credit and making bad decisions. The more shit becomes real to me, the more I ask myself what…
