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 […]

The blurred lenses are starting to clear up and many people starting to looking the same to me. We live in a time when social media magnifies everything that occurs, everyone is holding a camera ready to go LIVE. I find it nauseating that you can have proof in hand of injustices but it’s never […]

“Curses are like young chickens, they always come home to roost!” – Robert Southe I am sure you were like me and spent a good chunk of your Saturday morning mesmerized by the foolery that unfolded in Charlottesville, Virginia. Although I was far from surprised at the happenings in Virginia from the White Supremacist, what did baffle me […]

This Sunday Tasha sent out the shot that was heard around the world when she called Lawrence a Fuck Nigga. Lawrence felt it, his father felt it, and even his great grandfather felt it. There are only a few words that can rock men to the core, and Fuck Nigga is one of them. Why? […]

Social media debates can bring out the touchy side of folks, especially when there is a topic that both sides have strong opinions about. I’ve seen people threaten to kick ass outside after work at 5:00 sharp!! These last few months folks have been catching feelings like colds around my timeline, and the whole situation […]

So the last few weeks my timeline on Facebook has been flooded with folks trying to bring me over to the dark side like Anakin Skywalker or some damn body! The wave #BoycottTheNFL has turned from a whisper to a pillow talk.  Even some of the cats in the UML office have decided enough is […]

  Back in the day when little Danny P Ocean was a young lad in kindergarten, I used to know a little white girl named Beth. Beth always will hold a special place in my heart if not for nothing more than the fact that I remember her name. When you get my age only […]

  Well, some of you may know this by now if you follow us on Instagram or are connected with us on Facebook. But if you ain’t in the know let me fill you in….. UML is taking its network to the radio baby!! That’s right TheRealMidWestRadio.com will feature the Mogul Squared Network daily on […]

So in case, you haven’t heard Jay-Z dropped a new album that once again shut down the internets. Well not in the way that apps crashed anshit, but in a way that had him the most talked about hip hop artist from 12:01 am Friday morning to 12:01 Saturday morning. Folks went crazy for Jay-Z. And […]

The irony of life is woven into the fabric of every human’s journey. To have sight but no vision, Ms. Helen said it best, is the only thing worse than being blind. As both exist independently, the inter-reliant nature of their existence holds infinite context. Sight processes and identifies objects through the human eye as vision […]

So LaVar Ball released a sneak preview of his Big Baller Brand shoes that will be endorsed by soon to be drafted son Lonzo Ball. Well with a price tag of $495 beans you can imagine the backlash that the pops, the son, the shoe, the record label, and staff received!! Folks got legitimately pissed off […]

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 […]

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 […]
