The “Black Pack” takes a look at The Notorious Big’s seminal and final album Life After Death. It’s been 20 years since the album dropped and the crew examines the impact of not only Life After Death but also Biggie’s legacy and where does he stand in 2017. Is he still the GOAT, or does […]
This segment SpeakEASY, El Fatiah and Poindexter sit back and celebrate the life that was Michael Jackson. El Fatiah elaborates on why he feels MJ is the GOAT.
2016 sucks in a major way thus far. Today I come to the realization that the GOAT of all goats has passed away. Today I mourn the loss of Muhammad Ali. Ali meant a lot to me. The first time I remember seeing him was on an episode of Diff’rent Strokes. Where Arnold had to […]
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 […]
This discussion in The Mogul Lounge for this segment is athletes in strip clubs, G.O.A.T.S and the UML a year in review.
And just like that, one of the GOATs will be calling it quits ladies and gentlemen. Kobe Bryant will always hold a special place in my heart. Not that I was a Laker fan, I’m a die-hard Bulls fan. Not that I was the biggest Kobe fan either. But to me Kobe Bryant was the […]
Outside of kicks, clothes, music, cars, and cigars I enjoy a nice bottle of smell goods. Ain’t nothing better than picking a fragrance to match your style for the day. This year the #1 scent of choice is Aventus by the House of Creed. I’m not going to play like I am a fragrance expert. […]
This segment Danny P Ocean and Poindexter discuss Lamar Odom and if Rakim should be in the GOAT category.
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 […]
After 14 long years, D’Angelo’s Black Messiah fills every hunger pain you may have had as you waited for the chef to cook his main entree. Over the years we were fed lil appetizers in the forms of released incomplete tracks or occasional appearances on different songs. But nothing held us over, and we just waited […]
Last week I did a post on the greatest runs of classic albums. In this feature Classic Album Series, I will take a look at each of those albums in depth. Sharing my thoughts on why I feel each album is a classic. First up this week is Marvin Gaye – I Want You. Black […]
If Big Daddy Kane would have battled anyone in the 80’s, I would have bet a 3 piece, honey bun and a grape soda that he would have came out victorious. Even if the opponent was Rakim Allah. In this interview with VladTV he discusses how he almost battled Kool Moe Dee. He also touched […]
9/11 will forever be marked as the day that the Twin Towers fell in what was the worst attack on American soil since Pearl Harbor. So with all respect let’s have a moment of silence……… ………. ……… Ok. However on this day Jay-Z dropped what could arguably be his greatest album, The Blueprint. Many hip […]
Over the weekend me and the wife checked out Get On Up at the theatres. With all of the spotty press it was getting I wasn’t expecting much. And although at times the movie seemed a little too after-school specialish it served it’s purpose to me, and that purpose being to (re)introduce James Brown to […]
To me back in the day, Iron Mike Tyson was the GOAT. In his prime I felt that he could have knocked out an elephant in 96 seconds. So it is funny to hear him say that he doesn’t think he would be able to beat Floyd Mayweather Jr. in his prime if they were […]
I’ve heard rumors of this here, but I never saw the visuals of Marvin Gaye singing on the couch. Who else can do such a thing? This cat was laying on the couch running thru rehearsal better than most singers!! Especially in the days of this techno watered down studio hyped performers, it is always […]
If I had to pick a single rapper from my early Hip Hop days who I wish I could have bottled up and sold to the upcoming rappers of today; it would be Big Daddy Kane. This cat was the coolest of the cool. The type of cool that makes the room chill the hell […]
The Summer and I have at least one thing in common; we both love Hip Hop. In fact you can’t have a summer without Hip Hop. They go together like catfish and grits, white tees and Air Force 1’s, you know Ashford and Simpson. As far as I can recall Hip Hop has been a […]
25 years ago on June 20th, New Edition and Bobby Brown both released albums that helped shape the next 5 years in music, and arguably the next 20 or so years. In fact these two albums are the plates that music acts still eat off of. Ask Usher, Justin Timberlake, Boyz II Men, Jodeci, […]
This Thanksgiving you can watch a little Michael Jackson after you finish your turkey and dressing on ABC. The last few years ABC seems to have must watch TV Thanksgiving Night.
