Fat Joe brought new life into B.I.G.’s “A Story To Tell”. According to myth the story was about a New York Knick, Fat Joe cleared up decades of rumor by clarifying that the Knick who was jacked was none other than Anthony Mason. These short film by Aristotle explores what the night may have looked […]

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. […]

Poindexter gives a few shout outs and shares a little of himself.

“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 […]

  On April 21st, when the world lost one of our most valued royal gems, it felt like we all lost a friend, brother, cousin and most of all an innovative spirit of creativity and love. His music created an unspoken bond that connected so many of us for so many reasons. The words of Toshia Humphries articulated why […]

Not a good look!!! It is hot now and some of us like to bend rules a little. Or rather I say act like we don’t have any common sense. We throw fashion rules out the window once the temp goes past 75 degrees, all of sudden it is raid the closet and wear what […]

If you dabble in Love and relationships (of any kind really)…the break-up is bound to happen to you.  I happen to think that the break-up is just as much a part of the relationship as meeting and falling in love.  In fact, it may be the most important part…because it’s the memory that most people […]

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 […]

In honor of the continued success of our beloved Blog, I’ve decided to list a few ways for you to identify if you are, indeed, an Urban Mogul! You’re Probably an Urban Mogul If……. Even on your worst day, you feel like you can accomplish anything. Chillin’, for you, is a way of life. You […]

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 […]

Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society. Mark Twain Let’s be honest with ourselves, your choice in clothing speaks about yourself without you saying a word. Clothing is that first impression you give to the people you meet. It is that neck breaking effect  bystanders  catch as you pass […]

Just because you have a nice briefcase doesn’t mean you have to treat it as a carryall. The less you keep in your bag the better. You don’t want your bag to turn into a sloppy piece of leather because it has been stretched out of proportion. If you have items in your bag that you […]

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 […]

       

We live in a time where we want information at the pace of a fast food restaurant. Data is required two minutes ago and the resolutions to our issues is expected yesterday. To top it off, we want it all to be highly secure. Easy right? Well sort of! Currently Apple and the Feds are […]

    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 […]
