It’s their decision! These players are walking away from millions, they make the conscious decision that their health is more valuable than […]
And just like that Kendrick Lamar is back ladies and gentlemen. Sometime during the black night of Sunday Kendrick dropped his new album To Pimp A Butterfly.

The other day I read that a “Different World” is coming to Netflix….. FINALLY! I was a surprised because with the recent allegations that Bill Cosby has experienced I assumed eventually everything with his name attached to it would catch stray shots; Fat Albert, Pudding Pops, ugly sweaters, and A Different World. However, I was happily […]
