No matter how much sex there can be or how generous your pay checks come, you still have not experienced real amazement until you’ve been to a Chicago-style poetry slam. For four years, the end of February and beginning of March has marked the season in which I unleashed my craft. As a freshman in […]

Whitney and Bobby? No, Chavez & Qaddafi

There are some relationships that are just doomed from the start: Bobby and Whitney, Amy Winehouse and drugs, Lindsey Lohan and alcohol, etc. It seems as if every time Ms. Winehouse says “no, no, no, no” to rehab she says, “yes, yes, yes” to climbing psychedelic trees. Although she claims that her penchant for indulging […]

#WINNING?: The Unprecedented Meltdown Of Charlie Sheen

I spent most of this past week trying to figure out what in the hell is going on in the mind of Charlie Sheen. And I’m ashamed to admit that it’s been pretty amazing.The obvious question: Is Charlie Sheen #WINNING? The real question: Should we really be cheering him on?

A Letter to Lil’Wayne From Three Black Girls

“Letter to Lil Wayne” is a direct statement of justice from Watoto From The Nile. Growing tired and fed up with the constant degradation of Black women inside of Hip Hop music, they voice their views and opinions on this melodic track.

The Real Problem with the WNBA

This summer, the WNBA will tip off its 15th season. Some are surprised that it has lasted this long. Most whine that women’s basketball isn’t entertaining.

The Dark Continent: Holy Capitalism

Ever had a song stuck in your head? “Its the money, money and the cars, cars and the clothes…I just wanna be successful.” This past Sunday I would not help but repeat the Drake rap song in my head. What caused this hip-hop hook rotation? Nothing other than a South African mega church that I […]

American Workers Vs Multi-Billionaires

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwpSh66aEUwv Since we’ve released the video “American Workers Vs Multi-Billionaires” the response has been overwhelming! It’s seems once again we touched a nerve and spoke to the hurt of millions of working class Americans that are tired of being manipulated by Fox News and Billionaire puppeteers.

God’s iPod

I was going to serve up a nice little nihilistic rant to begin the week, but I’ve thought better of it.  Instead, I will provide you with a list.  It’s been a while since I’ve done a list, right? Last week, I failed to give a special birthday shout out to Nina Simone.  After posting […]

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78_loMbmKJ8 Welcome to the world of Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All (OFWGKTA) by way of 17 year old Earl Sweatshirt. You thought Chicago youth were bad, peep the hard truth of LA. This is your first day of millennial purgatory, complete with super drugs, aggressive sexuality, and lyrical violence.
