Allow me to reintroduce myself…  2019 is a special year for UML, it marks 10 years into this journey. Those A-1s since day 1 remember Urban Mogul Life started as a dream and a blog. From there we grew to what we are today, a media network with our hands in all things that make […]

For those of you that know me, you know I LOVE a fresh pair of kicks. This habit goes back about 30 some odd years ago to my first pair of Air Jordans. I happened to stumble upon my shoe affair, actually. See before I got my first pair of Bones I had a pair of […]

  “If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.” — Anne Bradstreet BLK WNTR was a necessary evil to get us to WHT SMMR. One thing any person ending a tough relationship soon finds out is with every […]

Genesis Renji dropped his latest solo effort S.I.N.S. Stories I Never Shared a little under a month ago and there was one track that stayed on repeat; Greenlight. This week he did us a solid and dropped the visuals to the joint which adds another layer of appreciation for the track. In this video Gen along […]

“Hi haters/ I’m back off hiatus/ UML made moves and some still hate us……” Hello, it’s me again. Glad you are still around. I know it has been a minute since you last read something from me. In fact, it has been about a year since my last post graced the blogosphere. And about 4 years […]

Welcome to another session of cracking open the Bank Vault. Today, we are going to talk a little bit about the future, and how to plan for it accordingly. No one wants to, or physically can, work forever. However, the concern is that you will still need money when you can no longer work for […]

Haize is joined by The Andrew Bello (@BelloBeingBello) to discuss Michael Cohen , an article about inner feminist racism, and a topic the fellas promise to pick back up. The Unpopular Opinion comes from Chaunice’s heart & Scoop Grady rebrands the Petty News. Plus Gerald L Cooper end the show with his thoughts on the […]

This picture sums up the determination and motivation that fuels your character. When I first met you, I recognized your competitive spirit. If someone said you couldn’t do something the fire inside responded to the challenge and you proved that person wrong. That is the flames of a champion. You once challenged me to a race, […]

We would like to take the time celebrate our own, Bonny K is 1/2 of Twisted Sisterz, a full-time mother and works full-time.  Congratulations  on your accomplishment, keep up the hard work.    

Kanye West done fooled around and went full blown Kanye West on us. Somehow playboy managed to piss me off this time, and I am somewhat unpissoffable!! When Kanye said Jesus walked we high stepped our ass to the polo shop to get Laurened up. When he told us that Yeezy jumped over the Jumpman […]

  The good folks here at UML have been working hard this year to continue to bring you content that reflects your lifestyle. We have been at this game since October of 2009 and some of you have been down from day 1. You remember when we were basically a 2 person operation churning out […]

What if I told you mixed people (for lack of a better term; mulatto sounds stupid, biracial sounds robotic, and multiracial could work, but mixed is shorter to type) pass for black the way some black people passed for white? Rachel Dolezal probably pops into your mind, but she did it for a different reason. […]

“You love to hear the story again and again….” You can always tell who went to an HBCU and who went to a predominantly white college/university. Those people who happened to live the life on the yard wear that shit like a poor cat wears his mink in the club with shades on. They will […]

  Growing up, I learned there was split between the 5 and the 6. You got your Peoples or your Folks and that’s who you deal with. But, don’t false-flag it because you might body-bag it. When you see a cutie you like you push up and try to tag it. When you see your […]

I have always been a good dancer. Ever since my aunts showed me how to do the Jordache in my grandmother’s kitchen, when I was 6, I knew I could easily pick up dance moves. Although, on that day, I learned more than the latest dance. I learned that music is something you interact with, […]

  I’m a soul rebel. Well acquainted with the devil inside, but if I kill all my demons then my angels might die. This life we live is a cosmic dance between light and dark, pleasure and pain, yin and yang. This dance gave birth to all of the manifestations of the universe. Eventually, this […]

I remember back in the day I believed that Iron Mike Tyson was the best boxer ever! He was so amazing in his knock outs that I bought a pair of boxing gloves and engaged in fisticuffs in the neighborhood with the homies down the block. Mike’s legend and mystique couldn’t be touched. He gave […]

There’s so many reasons for people to not do anything these except look out for self, we turn on the tv, social media etc…. and see political reasons to safety reasons. It’s very important to know the youth are watching and are picking up on what we are or aren’t doing. It’s great to be […]

TV/film can be a remarkable thing, can’t it? Sometimes it can make you laugh. While other times you might get touched. After witnessing Raina die which was perhaps the saddest scene in the history of Black television, I had to go back and recollect on the moments I got in my chest over a tv […]
