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,…

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…

Can’t Stop Our Blackness

I don’t think I’ve ever been more invested in an awards season. I have to say with the past two years of Oscars-so-white frenzy, I was beginning to think things would never change. And maybe all the blackness on display, this year, is a fluke, but if I’m being honest. They can’t continue to ignore…

One Time for the Culture

Let it be known that on the 1st of February in the year of our lord, 2017, the Queen herself announced the coming of not one but two heirs to the throne of Carter. Congratulations to the Carter family. I can rest assured that the seeds of generational wealth will be sown deep into the…

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…
