Mogul Life

  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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

In the recent months, I have really been considering the roles of men and women in relationships. More than that, I have become seemingly obsessed with how the trajectory has changed in the roles that our great-grandparents and grandparents have played in relationships and how that defined family as opposed to the roles in modern […]

One morning before work, I decided to stop into a small diner for breakfast. It was a Monday morning, but the crowd was pretty light. As I was checking out the crowd, which consisted primarily of older Caucasian women, I was intrigued by a somewhat feisty group of four elderly Caucasian women who appeared to […]

The other day while driving back from an out of town business meeting, I was listening to one of my favorite artist, Drake. It was one of his older albums, Take Care, I believe. In addition to being a writer, I am also a poet so I tend to listen to music differently. Nonetheless, I […]

  For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed. Remember, if you […]

In the blink of an eye … time jumped from the mid 1970s to 2015. Yep … Just like that. WELCOME TO THE 40/40 Club. Not the infamous restaurant lounge but the age of 40. Many have flooded social media timelines and news feeds with a barrage of pictures celebrating high school graduations, while many others have […]

The idea of “The Right One” is something that floats through everyone’s mind; from the single, to the involved…and even the unhappily married. From the time we are born we begin to formulate a recipe for that One person that we think will curb our appetite for all others. Over time, we narrow down the […]

One of my favorite producers/emcees, Oddisee, dropped a new single “That’s Love” that will be featured on his forthcoming album The Good Fight which drops on May 5th.  Check it out below! The Good Fight by Oddisee

Okay UML fam…let’s get down to the nitty-gritty. We didn’t launch this blog solely to focus on pop culture, music, and the shiny things in life. After all, any true Mogul has figured out, or will, that in order to master this lifetime, it will require a balanced being, strong in Mind, Body, and Spirit.Here […]

I know, I know, the headline is cliche’, and the topic has been beaten into the ground, but the conversation continues to intrigue every woman I have ever met. Almost to the point of wondering if there is an answer that any woman will really accept, or truly consider for the purpose of enhancing their […]

I just wanted to let everyone know that we have so many new things planned this year. Everything is falling into place PERFECTLY! Our team has assembled. I really believe you’re only as good as those that support you. I’m going to go before I start letting the cat out of the bag. I’m going […]

So you saying you need something to do when you get off of work tonight because um… well you don’t want to go home and all. And errrr…… you want to chill in a #ClassiclyCool spot and meet #ClassiclyCool people. Don’t worry, UML has you covered. Come on down to the Brenner Brewing Company for a little […]

Your Bachelor Pad by Allen Thompson Yes, the term “bachelor pad” may be a little dated, but the concept is still the same. You’re a single guy. You live by yourself, or maybe you have roommates. No matter. The place where you stay is your bachelor pad and eventually, if you’re lucky, a woman or […]

Danny Ocean graces us all with the Daily Fresh, which is always ripe with the visual fruit. But I want to take a minute to be very deliberate about what I think is beautiful. It’s not news to anybody that I’m big on eye candy. As a matter of fact, i think I’ve got cavities […]

Everybody knows I have some strange tastes.  This list encompasses that with the hopes that you find something new to enjoy if you haven’t already indulged.  I can’t say the rest of the MOGULS will agree but hey….I don’t really care. Without further ado, here are my top hip hop picks from last year.   Jank’s […]

Do something today that will  move you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.  Whether it’s one inch closer, or a mile…progress is everything.  Feed your inner Mogul a little taste of success everyday, because success is addictive.  Develop a healthy addiction to life and all that it has to offer. Enjoy, I.B.Edubl

Of all the rappers I’ve shot throughout the years, Talib Kweli remains one of my favorite.  His energy is explosive from beginning to end and he always gives you an unforgettable show every time.  I shot Talib quite a few times but here are some of my favorites from the ‘Taking It To The Streets’ […]

Have you ever been to an art museum and saw a beautiful statue or painting that was just too perfect? The lines, colors, shapes, vibe etc. seemed to be an extension from God himself. However, nothing seems to be what you remembered. That same statue/painting that seemed so gorgeous before, upon further inspection was not all it […]
