Chicago’s About to Pull the Trigger on Blackness

By Keantre Malone 12:33 pm June 12, 2011 I am watching the most beautiful “mile” in the world turn into a war zone where black bodies embody the spirit of the enemy. For those that don’t know, Chicago’s downtown area has been taken over by groups of violent teenagers looking to steal Ipads, for which […]

Jew Hip Black Hop

By Keantre Malone 1:12 pm June 2, 2011 Bonded by our survival of near extinctions, Jews and Blacks always leveled with agendas for ending racism.

Word From Big Brother

By Keantre Malone 1:38 pm May 26, 2011 Last night my younger brother asked me for help with a project that he was about 2 weeks behind in work. Of course it was due the next day so I automatically adopt an attitude: have no mercy for what doesn’t get finished, but give all that […]

Distant Relatives: Tomorrow Kings and OFWGKTA

By Keantre Malone 2:16 pm May 19, 2011 The word around Chicago whispers about those young cats in LA, Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, and it supposes that OFWGKTA probably bumped some Chicago tracks on their iPods.  Crowd hoppers of the last decade, from Wicker Park to Lakeview, can immediately see the similarities […]

Most of our experiences in high school, acknowledging the fact of the transition, owe their thrill to finding that “sweetheart”. Soon, however, all the […]

Conscious Hip Hop Still Here

By Keantre Malone 3:29 pm May 8, 2011 More often than not, we get the occasional talk show hosts and news correspondents ignoring the uplifting advocacy of Hip Hop and it irks me.

On the Origins of Our Sexuality

By Keantre Malone 12:00 pm April 28, 2011 So it has come to mind lately that sexuality begins with responses to someone else’s arousing actions.

Loosen the Ties that Once Were Nuses

By Keantre Malone 1:44 pm April 24, 2011 There have been too many occasions in which a Black business has taken advantage of its customers for the sake of maximizing their income. A boatload majority of the support for these businesses comes from other Black people, and in effect, the profit-focused regulation creates a sad […]

We Trade Toys for Oblivion and Prisons

By Keantre Malone 12:51 pm April 14, 2011 Dedicated to Theo Hike III, Lawrence, and Jalyn – One Love Adulthood feels strange and comes early when all your clubhouse friends (from kindergarten up) become institutionalized. We tell time by the progression of life’s complexity: homework piles up undone, small crushes that explode into sexual exclusivity, […]

Spoon-Fed Nickelodeon: Some Shows We Wish Would Re-Run

By Keantre Malone 12:00 pm April 7, 2011 Television rarely comes on in my dorm room, guess that’s how it gets in college with paper after paper and the guilty slippage into partying.
