In These Podcast Streets

A month ago, I didn’t even know who Janet Mock was. I don’t know how I came across “Never Before with Janet Mock” but the shit is lit. Her first guest was none other than the queen mother, Tina Knowles – Lawson, and for a little under an hour they waxed philosophic about the princesses…

Backshot Heard Round the World

Bitch. Insecure season 2 kicked off on Sunday and… Wow. Wow. Wow. Issa Rae is truly a treasure. So season one: We get to know Issa’s world. Her friends, her relationship, and the dynamics of both. Even though Insecure was becoming its own thing, I couldn’t help but compare it to Awkward Black Girl, an…

How Do I Measure the Time?

In episodes of The Read, quite honestly. I really feel like they’ve perfected this podcast shit. Like they’re funny, witty, intelligent and just plain relatable. And don’t let both of them come in the studio fucked up – GOLD. I think I discovered the show around this time last year and ever since, I have…

Bad Mutha Shut-Yo-Mouth

I really can’t even lie… I fucks with DJ Khaled. Like on some real shit, the man is the shit. Not only is he business savvy, but he puts on a damn good show. In every sense. I start my days, most of them, with his snapchat story. Sidebar: I’m a loyal one. I still…

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…

DAMN.

In the final analysis, this album knocks.

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,…
