When UML first opened shop back in October of 2009, we were primarily a “Blogzine” that focused on night events periodically. Starting an entertainment branch was nowhere in our sight. However, here we are standing on the verge of another big step for Urban Mogul Life. We started Mogul Squared almost by accident. Back in […]

Tick – tock – tick – tock We are 3 days away from officially kicking off the next phase of Urban Mogul Life. Some of you have RSVP’d so you are good. Some of you have said you are going on the event page, but you ain’t good yet until you RSVP. Some of you […]

Well, Kenny is back like your up North cousin who came to spend the summer with you every year. You know the one that pulls up in his family’s Cadillac with some crispy Air Jordans and enough tricks up his sleeve to turn out a small country town for weeks! Yep, that is what a Kendrick […]

  Some of you have been down with UML since day 1 back in 2009. You have seen the progression and the stunted growth of the brand as we moved from year to year. And to those of you that are still here holding your UML orange flag after all of this time, we salute […]

Sometimes a man just needs to sit down and have a good conversation, that is something that has gone on since man wrote on walls. Either in a barbershop, campfire, or a man cave, men have gathered to share stories of triumph or defeat. Cigars and Conversations, which launched this week, aims to play a […]

Well, the moment that 80s kids everywhere has been waiting on finally arrived last night; The New Edition Story premiered on BET. Now I must admit as much as I love NE and all that they stand for, I was understandably nervous for this made for tv movie. The number 1 reason is because as […]

I wonder if the people doing the mannequin challenge with children have gotten the parent’s permission before they post the video online? Hmmmm…… Did Donald Trump pull history’s greatest sike move? Could he really be a Democrat in Republican’s clothing? Dave Chappelle has become my all-time favorite comedian. Speaking of Dave….. oh how I miss the Chappelle […]

Once upon a time there was a group called The Beatles, you may have heard of them. They were 4 lads from Liverpool who happened to take to Rock music and change the world in the process. Well, they made a string of good albums in their heyday but the group dynamics began to crumble […]

  1. Who knew after all these years Jarobi has flow? Imagine if he would have stayed with the group? 2. Where has Ali Shaheed Muhammad been during the promo run? What is Quest without Ali Shaheed Muhammad? 3. What’s up with these pancakes that are so good you don’t need syrup? Syrup is the […]

A few weeks ago in Milwaukee, we had a riot that resulted in some businesses being set on fire. The next day in those neighborhoods it looked as if a small tornado struck the block. What did the people in that community do? They assembled the next morning and cleaned it up. They did what […]

Damn here we go again, Moguls. The Summer of Discontent is the gift that keeps on giving. And before autumn leaves fall, Summer had three more gifts to hand out; the shootings of Tyree King, Keith Lamont Scott, and Terence Crutcher. Damn! It is beginning to seem like police officers are getting points for shooting […]

  We have waited so patiently for a new De La Soul record. The last legitimate release we got from the trio was 2004’s The Grind Date. That was a minute. Long enough in most circles to put a tombstone on a career that has last decades. However, in this case, I believe that absence […]

It is funny how hindsight makes everyone a winner. A few months ago we as a nation were celebrating Muhammad Ali and ALL that he stood for, from his brash loud mouth antics to his refusal to serve in the United States Army. Now many of the same people who gave Ali high fives are […]

Yeah, I understand that to some of you think Chris Brown is the second coming of Jesus Christ. I get that. But please let’s not get carried away. Chris Brown cannot carry Michael’s Jheri curl juice bottle to the party. And that’s not a knock against Mr. Brown, but we have to keep it 100 […]

The Morning After… Day 2…… Tension is at an all-time high out in the community and that is understandable. However, attacking each other and trying to create a “social media” civil war is corny and wack. This morning I was accused by a local police officer who is a friend of two things. A) That […]

The morning after……. I sit here thinking as my city still smells like smoke, What’s Next? We should have watched the clues that were laid out before us all summer long and knew at some point this could possibly happen. We should have noticed the current temperature in the United States and realized that something […]

So in case you missed it, Paul Ryan decided to take a selfie with all of Capitol Hill’s interns. Over 100 of them. And of course, the internet, being the internet pointed out how white his picture was. In fact, I like to call the picture 100 Shades of Whiteness. Somehow Paul Ryan managed to […]

So while America was coming off of it’s BBQ high, another Black man was murdered by police. While we Facebooked, Tweeted, Instagrammed, and hashtagged our anger, another Black man was murdered by the police. While we Facebooked, Tweeted, Instagrammed, hashtagged, and peacefully marched, 4 officers were murdered. When will this end? How many more Black men […]

Well just like that 7 short years later Maxwell has returned with the second disc of his trilogy blackSUMMERS’night. Last time we had a new set from Maxwell, Michael Jackson had just passed away, now he returns with SUMMERS’ a few months after we lost Prince. I’m not liking these coincidences. blackSUMMERS’night was supposed to […]

The past few days I have been sharing the message on social media for cats to “Count your blessings, not your problems!” As of late, my Facebook feed has been flooded with negative message after negative message. So much in fact that I think some people run to the phone to post about whatever negative […]

So now that the presidential candidates have been narrowed down to Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump the real fun begins. Over the last month or so once it became clear that Bernie Sanders would not get the Democratic nod from the delegates and the people they represent, his supporters huffed, puffed and proclaimed that they […]
