Danny P Ocean

Danny P Ocean First off let me preface this by saying I love hip-hop and the culture that it gave me. I probably have been affected more by hip-hop than any other single culture. The culture of hip-hop introduced me to Malcolm X, jazz, and a multitude of books I may have never picked up. […]

“It is a peculiar sensation, this double-consciousness, this sense of always looking at one’s self through the eyes of others, of measuring one’s soul by the tape of a world that looks on in amused contempt and pity. One ever feels his two-ness, an American, a Negro; two souls, two thoughts, two unreconciled strivings; two […]

Did I ever tell you all about what I like to call The Barney Stinson Sweet Spot Theory? After years of writing articles,  I can’t recall everything I wrote and I said to myself… “Self… why don’t you tell the readers about your Barney Stinson Sweet Spot Theory? It will surely make for great water […]

Somewhere out of a pool of purple tears from a dove Beyonce emerged last night and proceeded to shut the internet down as only Beyonce can. While the masses were sitting back trying to get back on with life, Queen Bey was plotting how to take over the web once again. To help the world […]

So today I was sitting at a meeting learning some good things mind you when all of a sudden my text messages started blowing up. I didn’t pay much attention to them figuring it was Nike.com sending out their tweets. (You know I have to stay on top of releases.) But at the rate they […]

  A Tribe Called Quest meant a lot to me growing up. In fact, The Low End Theory was the first cd I ever purchased.  For me, ATCQ represented how one can evolve from rayon to throwbacks and still keep it hip hop. See in high school I was a Daisy Age wearing, left my […]

    Life is a funny experience that can expire any minute. Yesterday as I was coming home from the UML offices I saw one of my neighbors getting ready to pull off. I waved to him as I usually do not expect nothing much, but this time, he rolled down the window wanting to […]

Yeezy, Mr.West, Kanye to the… Whatever you call him,  you can’t call him boring. The Life of Pablo is here. This album is sonically light years ahead of any album per usual.  Dr. Dre would even marvel at the arrangement. If you’re expecting the boom bap, sample based ‘College Dropout ‘ vibe then you’ll be […]

Picture the scene. You at home trying to figure out what you want to wear to the party. You know that everyone will be there in their spiffiest digs, so you better come correct. As you look into the closet you realize it ain’t anything for you t throw on, so you decide to hit […]

For some reason when Kanye seems to be winning he ends up losing at the same damn time. Like Craig in Friday, Ye is the type of cat who gets fired on his day off. For the last few weeks all the talk surrounding Kanye was positive. He has a new album dropping on the […]

So it looks like we are in the midst of Yeezy season once again. And from the noise on the internets it seems as if Ye is heating shit up this winter. Over the past 2 weeks Kanye has dropped two singles “Real Friends” and No More Parties in L.A.” Both of these tracks have […]

My Facebook feed has been off the chain the last few days. Everybody seems to have an opinion about Mr. Bill Cosby. Either you hate him and any old man that looks like him, or you riding out with him throwing the middle finger to his many haters that are lined up like skinny pants […]

Moguls things got really real, real quick. The past 6 days I have been living the life of a single parent while wifey Dukes was out of town handling business like a true Boss Lady. I never knew how hard it was for a single parent on a day to day basis, but these past […]

At some point Don Lemon has to look in the mirror, and I wonder is he happy with who looks back at him. For months Don Lemon has seem to embrace playing the devil’s advocate for every national Black issue that has come across his desk. From Ferguson to the N word Don is like […]

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 […]
