Exodus, The Black Version


So I gave Exodus: Gods & Kings a chance, I really did.

The Wedding Ringer Movie Review


I liked this movie.

Nigga


Little over a year ago I was in bondage
And now I'm back out here reaping the blessings
And getting the benefits that go along with it
Everything that's out here for kings like us
The reason why we like this this jewelry and this diamonds and stuff
They don't understand is because we really from Africa
And that's where all this stuff come from
And we originated from kings, you know what I'm saying
So don't look down on the youngsters
Because they wanna have shiny things
It's in our genes, know what I'm saying
We just don't all know our history so...
- Pimp C

We have the power.

Blurred Lines


The first time that I heard of this, I chose to keep my mouth shut, somewhat.

Daughters

Waitin' for the Lord to rise,
I looked into my daughter's eyes,
And realized I'mma learn through her.
The Messiah, might even return through her.
If I'mma do it, I gotta change the world through her.
- Common

Winter Wonderland


I opened my eyes to the wintry wonderland that was my backyard. The snow fell slowly to a ground that was as white as a the eye, and has calm as the breeze. Snow covered shed, with tree limbs draped in snow, it was a sight to been seen, the best vision of wonder that one could possibly get.

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Movie Review


I'm more disappointed than anything that this movie sucked.

Race Relations | Interracial Dating


She can't love me, I can't love her
Cause they say we're the wrong color
Staring, gloating, laughing, looking
Like we've done something wrong
Because we show love strong, get real, come on
Calling us names too bad to mention
But we pay them no attention
For color blind are inner feelings
If we feel happiness
And know our love's the best, forget their mess
- Stevie Wonder

Interracial dating is something I have no quarrels with.

SNL40 Review


Easily the best thing on TV I've seen on TV in recent memory.

Loving YOUR Lover


With my hands held real tight
Always ready to fight
For the few pieces of joy I have now
You have turned on a light
And I've lost my sight
But my heart still remembers the sound
Of a dream of a love one day found
- Amel Larrieux

One of the most common mistakes in relationships people make is loving someone they want them to be, rather than loving the person that they are.

In Jackie Robinson West I Trust


This is just sad.

African Prince, African Princess


I wrote a blog back in September called African King, African Queen, it cited how sides are pivotal roles in the protection, growth, and nurturing of our community. Without each side there's nothing stopping various entities from destroying our community. But today I was taking a gander at my timeline on twitter, and I saw something interesting. The initial thing that caught my eye was a tweet about how there should be a law sagging pants, and other various comments about how unappealing and trifling it is. But the thing that made me want to talk about the youth was the subsequent remarks about how there are more pressing matters than ticketing young black men about their attire. It was pointed out that broken homes, lack of opportunities & modern day oppression all play bigger roles in the current sabotage of the African Americans in this country.

50 Shades of Grey Movie Review


This movie sucked so bad.

In fact this movie sucked so bad that I don't even want to review it. I don't know whether it was the over the top marketing for it, the annoying soft porn, the repeated butt slaps, or the stiff ass acting; but I hated it.

Honestly that is the only thing you need to know about this movie. I read the cliff notes on this book and it seemed to have all the elements of neuroticism that would make a big budgeted movie like this work; but yet they did literally nothing from the book. In fact I heard they made they made Ana look weaker than she actually is from the book.

Well whatever the case is, I tried watching this movie twice, once with a chick and another time so that I could review it for the blog. Both times I fell asleep on the movie, and both times I was mad with myself because I wanted to watch something else. The fact that makes me even more mad is the fact that it made money after everyone said the movie was spotty at best. But I figure that's all of those lonely housewives, old single women, loyalist to the book and fans of  Jamie Dornan that allowed the movie to do strong numbers.

Personally I'm giving this movie a D- and the only reason it's not an F is because Dakota Johnson has a decent body. I'm not recommending this movie to anyone that I know who has a brain and a legit thinking process. Now I know some women who actually liked the book, so if you're a female reader of mine, then go for it if you like that kind of thing, I guess.

But my parting shot to you guys is the YouTube channel CinemaSins movie review on it. If you're not familiar with CinemaSins then he's a guy who basically tells you why your favorite, and not so favorite movie sucked. It's really great and I urge you to check out the channel for some really great laughs and tidbits on movies you would've never notice.



Until next time guys.

H.E.R., Part IV | The War For You


But you to taught me how to feel,
When nobody ever would.
And you taught me how to love,
What nobody ever could.
- The Weeknd

It sounded like a good idea at the time.

The Future of HBCU's


I've been asked to give my thoughts and opinions on what's going on with legislators wanting to close South Carolina State University down until they fix their current financial problem. If you're unfamiliar with the situation, you can catch up here.

Self Love, The Best Love


Don't ever criticize yourself.
Don't go around all day long thinking,
'I'm unattractive, I'm slow, I'm not as smart as my brother.'
God wasn't having a bad day when he made you...
If you don't love yourself in the right way, you can't love your neighbor.
You can't be as good as you are supposed to be.
- Joel Osteen

I saw very few trailers on this movie, and even then I still had high hopes for this movie.

20's By Lauren Gayle


Over and over again, I have read this statement, stopped, thought about it and read it again. Can I relate to this? Can you relate to this? Yes, I certainly can relate to this!

My Favorite Rap Artists, Vol. 2 | 2Pac


Remember me as an outcast, outlaw
Another album out that's what I'm about, more
Getting raw till the day I see my casket
Buried as a g while the whole world remembers me
Until the end of time
- (From Until The End of Time, 2001)

It's safe to say that Tupac Amaru Shakur (1971-1996) was unquestionably a one of a kind individual.

So 2014 was just a bad year all around for a lot of good people it seems like.
