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 […]

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

Cats be lost as hell when it comes to style and fashion. First understand that style is classic, fashion is temporary. So when you base your style off of fashion you risk looking like yesterday before you even step out of the house. That would be a no-no. But the problem lies in the fact […]

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 […]

I expected this track to be banging my eardrums to pieces but M.O.P. proves once again they can pretty much destroy any beat.  It’s much smoother than you’ll be used to hearing them rap over and Maino just adds to the ruggedness of the flows.

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 […]

I’m a huge Dilated Peoples fan.  Not so much Jurassic 5 though.  I got the chance to see them both when the “Word of Mouth” tour made a pit stop through my fair city.  I not only shot the show but I also weaseled my way onto the tour bus and hung out with Evidence and […]

Kendrick Lamars new single, “I”, is a little pop (ish) but that’s expected when you sample “That Lady” from the Isley Brothers for the 800th time.  I can’t complain though.  It’s his first single since 2012.  Take a listen below and let us know what you think. https://soundcloud.com/topdawgent/i-1

Singer, writer, inventor* and father of frank Ocean is suing Russell Simmons for $142 million.  Calvin Cooksey (Frank Oceans pops) claims he was “unfairly portrayed as a horrible father on Simmons Website, Global Grind” according to TMZ.  According to Cooksey, Frank was taken away and hidden from him after the age of 5. Besides lying […]

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 […]

Apart from raising my kids, my favorite thing to do in this world is travel. I’ve been everywhere I’ve ever wanted to go and used just about every mode of transportation to get there. In my “Urban Excursions” posts, I’ll share my experiences in many cities as well as a few other countries. Photos by Damon “Jank” […]

Danny P. told you about 1000 Posts ago that Moguls don’t show up to a party empty handed. Now I’m here to tell you…that they don’t carry their Party Juice in a brown paper bag. Walking in with a bottle, no matter how expensive or well chosen, in a brown paper bag says “I’m here and […]

No Catchy Title Necessary Here…Ladies and gentleman….this is one of the most fascinating photo captures I have ever seen…

No…that isn’t the official title…but if I was an Art Making Mogul…it’s the one I would choose! Intriguing piece… And, if you know the artist or the real name of it, drop us a note and we’ll call’em both by name. Enjoy the eye candy…

Rest in peace Soul Sister Number 1…Love, UML

So all this time I’m thinking…”Kanye’s not really serious about this chick…is he?”…and “He’s just playing on the jungle gym like ALL THE OTHER little kids”. Well ladies and gentlemen, cats and dogs, chickens and roosters….apparently he is. Kanye reportedly announced to the audience at his Dec. 30th show in New Jersey that Kim Kardashian is […]
