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 […]

What Mogul doesn’t love the taste of good alcohol, especially after a long day.  We all like to come home, go to our bar and pour a drink JR Ewing style and sit back and drink the days lumber away. At least I know Danny P does. And Danny P doesn’t like to drink…. how […]

  Yep….. no need to hide it. You feel good about yourself, so do we. And we can all feel good together in our brand new Black Excellence shirts. If you are feeling excellent and want to let the world know visit our store to preorder. We are Urban Mogul Life….. join the Movement!!! Preorder […]

Yep it’s week 4 of the NFL season and I’m only one point out of first place and I intend on being in sole possession of it by the end of the day on Sunday.  I had a monster week 3 performance, this group thought I was going to let them freestyle on me, they […]

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 […]

   Who is Tiana Marshé? Well it depends on who you ask. To some, a writer, poet and prolific speaker. For others, a counselor, motivator and mentor; sweet, kind hearted and friendly. Very witty and charismatic. To a lucky few, a ride or die, confidant, who is funny, passionate and loyal. But to the most […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Moguls for the last 3 weeks we have been on Facebook debating, questioning, and validating the top 20 albums in the history of Hip Hop. It has been a process that not only kept my debating skills sharp, but it has also sent me back to the vault to listen to music I otherwise would […]

As we get older, hopefully our dress code turns into some mature steez. However as I look around, boys seem to be getting older and older. Old young acting dudes are walking around with their azz hanging out, not to mention wearing pants so tight that you can see their pulse. So what can a Mogul do […]

Last night I made a Facebook post on the perceived difference of treatment the biker gang in Waco, Texas received as compared to the protestors in Baltimore and/or Ferguson. Overnight my post was liked and shared by multiple people. Most people agreed with my observation, however a few people had a difference in opinion. I find […]

Last year about this time I was preparing for my wedding. This year about this time I am preparing for my first child. Funny how that goes ain’t it? And just like the days leading up to the wedding people are asking me the infamous question…. “Are you scared??” And my answer is the same […]

Maybe I am too revolutionary. Maybe I am the Grandson of Malcolm X. Maybe one of my downfalls is that I am too analytical. I can accept that. Cool. But one thing I know I would have a problem with is playing for a professional team that has Ben Franklin as one of their logos. […]

Little dogs are so cute, cuddly and look like they smell like puppypowder. In the real world the only thing that ranks cuter than little dogs are Lauren London waking up with the sunrise on her face, baby Ewoks, and fresh off the grill brisket. But the other day my whole understanding and love for […]

I didn’t have the privilege of growing up in an environment where my likes and dislikes in music were predetermined and spoon fed. There was no way you could be an 80’s child without being exposed to multiple genre’s of music. The radio was dominated by pop/rock, my household was filled with Motown oldies, funk, […]
