Janet Jackson returns after years away chilling with her husband with a new album. Unbreakable is her first new joint since 2008’s Discipline (which I enjoyed very much.) The last time we saw Janet musically she was still with Jermaine Dupri and Michael was still alive. So naturally one would wonder if her new life […]

I remember watching Bugs Bunny as a shorty and one of the lessons I took away from that episode was that “music calmed the savage beast!” That phrase always stuck with me as I got older. Not that I am calling myself a savage beast, but that music has the power to calm, seduce, hype, […]
About a week or so ago I posted about the dumb shit rappers have said, and it got lots of hits. Thanks Moguls. But this week I will touch on things I have learned from hip hop music. As we know everything isn’t all ignorant when it comes to rap music, if it was we […]
If you have followed UML for a minute you will remember that last year your boy Danny P Ocean jumped the broom. Got hitched. Tied the knot. Hung my player jersey in the rafters. And if you know Danny P personally you know that marriage wasn’t always on my radar. I was happily living the […]
Every so often an incident occurs that catch us basically with our pants down looking like a deer in the head-lights. The well prepared Mogul is the Mogul who escapes unscathed, while the others fall by the wayside. Don’t think that wherever you chilling the spot can’t get hot, those be the fools who usually […]
If you know me you know I love music. Old music, new music it don’t matter if I once liked it, I probably still like it. Well the other day as I was rolling thru the streets, I was listening to a playlist I composed of old school tracks I once bumped back in the […]
SPEAK Easy – As I sit alone in my four cornered man cave with my Beats by Dre headphones on staring at my DSM-5 book I begin to ponder how Andre Young can openly admit that he has ghost writers yet makes the best rap album of the year. The last few weeks, the internet […]
We don’t know whether to believe this or just dismiss it as radio talk. Dr. Dre is supposedly dropping a new album August 1st according to Ice Cube and it is going to be “mega”. Not sure who gave Cube the license to spill the information that if true was probably suppose to be a secret. […]
Sometime in the early 80s I was a Dukes of Hazzard fan. Not just any old fan, I was possibly the biggest fan of the Duke boys who wasn’t white. I was such a big fan that one year for Christmas all I asked for was some Dukes of Hazzard action figures and the General […]
The past year my life has change in oh so many ways. I went from forever single to gaining a loving wife and daughter. Fair enough? Well to top this fiscal year off, I have been blessed with my first child two weeks ago. Life is Good! I think it is safe for me to […]
After 5 games in the NBA Finals, a couple of things stand out for me. A) LeBron is a cold muthafucka. B) LeBron and all of his coldness can’t do shit with the Warriors if they are on. And that is no slap against LeBron, once Love went down and the young Kyrie popped a knee-cap […]
Moguls I need one of these in my life. Hopefully you will catch me in a town by you turning corners in one of these.
Skyzoo breaks down the inspiration behind his new album Music For My Friends.
Moguls everywhere like a good drink, don’t we? Well what better way to smooth out your whiskey than with a Death Star Ice Sphere? If that sounds like something the man in your life would like why not make his day? Shop
Poindexter will be proud of me. As some of you longtime readers know Poindexter is the resident Apple head of the UML office. He loves everything Apple….. Mac, iPhone, iPad, Beats Music. Shit if Apple comes out with iSlippers playboy will probably get two pairs, one for the office and home. He is so serious […]
Last night I turned on ABC and to my amazement the Finals were on!! LeBron was running down the lane like a blindfolded bowling ball knocking over anyone in sight. Chef Curry was cooking as per usual. And Dellavedova was taking someone’s knees out once again. Sounds about right don’t it? Except that didn’t happen. My […]
After 10 years of being a part of the drift scene, Phil Morrison and James Robinson from Driftworks took a tour of Japan, accompanied by film maker Al Clark, and guided by Mitto Steele. The goal was to see where drifting originated. To find out why it has advanced so much, and why the drivers […]
