Mogul

  I’m a soul rebel. Well acquainted with the devil inside, but if I kill all my demons then my angels might die. This life we live is a cosmic dance between light and dark, pleasure and pain, yin and yang. This dance gave birth to all of the manifestations of the universe. Eventually, this […]

Some of you Moguls may be new to the game, but back in the day (’bout 6 yrs. ago) when UML was brand new, and before we had 3 million hits :-), I used to write a piece known in these parts as G.O.A.T.’s. The title doesn’t refer to the furry little critter that lends his face to […]

Pretty soon the parties will be brought indoors and you need to make sure that if you are offering drinks, you are well prepared. It is important that you not only have a variety of drinks, but you should also make sure you offer quality drinks. You don’t need to have every liquor that the […]

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 […]

I’ve hustled across this great country of ours and even balled out in a few other countries.  One place I’ve gone to an absurd amount of time is New York (not Manhattan though…yuck).  I love the freedom of style, art and life in general.  One of my favorite spots to visit there was, the “graffiti mecca”, 5 […]

Sure, Tech N9ne’s fan base is a little different from the average rapper.  The guy even wears make up during his performances.  There are a few things that make him better than the average though.  First off, his energy on stage is phenomenal.  At the age of 43 he makes most of our young favorites […]

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 […]

When I think of fathers I think of cats like James Evans, dudes who provide for their family no matter how much the odds are stacked against them. James Evans would find a way to make $3.28 pay the rent, buy a week’s worth of greens and catfish, and have a nickel to send Michael […]

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’ […]

A Mogul never gets so big that he/she can say or do things that make other people feel small. A Mogul never lends more money that he/she can afford to loan and never borrows more than he/she can pay back. A Mogul always introduces a younger person to an older person. If a Mogul is […]

I’m not a rapper so how can I possibly discuss anything about the rap world you ask? Here’s how.  I’ve been involved in every facet of this rap shit for the last 20 years.  I’ve produced, I’ve written, I’ve been an A&R, I’ve deejayed, I’ve promoted, I’ve marketed and blah, blah, blah.  Everything I’ve done […]

Femi Kuti, son of the legendary creator of Afrobeat; Fela Kuti, has stopped through my town a few times during our festival seasons.  Since I am a huge fan of him and his father I was honored to be able to be that  close and shoot.  Take a gander below. https://flic.kr/p/eYkUuv https://flic.kr/p/eYxi6G https://flic.kr/p/eYxgQS https://flic.kr/p/eYkUuv

I’m not with all the glitz and glam when I’m on a trip.  It just doesn’t do anything for me.  Like most though, the first time you go to New York you will most likely stay in Manhattan; mostly because you don’t know any better.  I’m a victim of it myself.  My first actual vacation to […]

So, we can finally put this story to rest….Your Old Droog is a white dude from Brooklyn, like he said from the beginning, and Nas apparently has nothing to do with him.  He used the ominous gossip contrived by the media to push his career ahead a few steps; and rightfully so.  While Droog obviously digs […]

  Music is an integral part of our society. Nearly everyone is enthusiastic about a particular genre, singer, band, or composer. As an individual you will have your picks, but do you really know how to listen to music? Are you able to appreciate and hear the many wonderful offerings that the world has to […]

Everyone runs a little late from time to time. But  a Mogul knows how to play it and still remain smooth throughout the ordeal. If you are running late, you should call and let the party know immediately. (Not a party-party because they may not care when you get there if at all, but the […]

We all need the time to get away from all the monotony and all that hardcore that that comes with being a Mogul. It’s nice to be able to seat back with your feet kicked on a beach and enjoy a beverage of your choice. Depending on where you’re located in the world this isn’t […]
