#ThrowbackThursday: The Return of BET Uncut

Gather ’round little perverts!

If you were born 1984 or later, then you have probably stayed up late to watch BET Uncut back in the day. Before the internet, and before everything was buckwild and free, BET Uncut was the closest thing you were going to get to porn. Unedited grainy ass music videos were everything around the late 1990’s-early 2000’s and many are very happy to hear that BET Uncut is officially making it’s return.

With how graphic the media is today I don’t know if BET Uncut will have the same taboo impact it had on me during my childhood (these kids today done seen it all), but in honor of BET Uncut making a comeback I will like to present my…

Meek Mill and Me

So…I figured that I would hop out the motherfucking Porsche and let the people know what has been going on with me. With the developments involving my fellow Philadelphian, Meek Mill, I feel like I should:

A. Unleash my feelings as well.

B. Show that those from my city aren’t completely petty (just a lil’ bit petty).

If you haven’t been under a rock, then you know that Meek Mill made the unwise decision of starting a Twitter beef with Drake. Drake allegedly had a ghostwriter write a verse on Meek Mill’s track “R.I.C.O” and also most importantly, Drake did not tweet out a link to Meek Mill’s album when it dropped. *crickets*

Since then it has been all downhill for Meek…kind of like my life had been for the last two months.

sad meekInstead of dragging other people into my issues via Twitter, I am choosing to go a better route and just tell y’all why I’m really mad (Meek everyone knows it’s more to this story. Let’s just be honest, let’s just be real). Continue reading

Throwback Thursday: In College I Enjoyed Nasty Songs

There should be no surprise that my semi ratchet ass cannot get enough of raunchy misogynistic music.

 I never missed an opportunity to dance in a basement and hear underrated classics like Lil’ Ru’s raunchy and appropriately titled, “Nasty Song.” Now that is clever naming!

Get into this video and I dare you not to be inspired to “put your pussy” on someone, or give/receive a wallie.

Hey Black Culture 

It seems as if no bit of black culture is ever recognized until it goes mainstream.

We use the term mainstream, but let’s call a spade a spade; mainstream is really a politically correct word for “white culture approved.” I personally have no problem with black culture becoming popular and being adopted by other races. I take great pride in my culture and when others embrace it I find it cute in a Paul Mooney sort of way.

My only issue with black culture becoming popular is when it becomes overused and corny due to it becoming mainstream.

Think of it this way:

It’s the same idea that once your parents know about the new hottest thing, and start to embrace it, it’s no longer cool. The same goes for black culture when it becomes mainstream

For example, remember the term “Bling Bling” popularized by B.G? Of course you don’t remember the origin of the term, but I bet you do remember getting sick of hearing it. 

This is what I fear will potentially happen for two people in specific that I have always loved:

Pharrell Williams and Taraji P. Henson

With mainstream pop culture finally “discovering” you guy’s talent (like y’all haven’t been hot since “Baby Boy” and the Neptunes), I am afraid that mainstream culture may see you guys as a novelty and use you up until you’re corny, like Bling Bling.

Taraji and Pharrell have been around and notarized by black culture for years but both have only started earning accolades in 2014. Though I am happy that they have been noticed for their talent, I still can admit that I am a bit selfish with my black culture and am mad that it took the attention of white culture for them to receive recognition.

On one hand Taraji and Pharrell deserve to be noticed by EVERYONE for their talents, but on the other hand I don’t want them to be a fad and something that will go out of style once white culture is not checking for “Empire” and they stop playing “Happy” in department stores.

Will black culture ever win by becoming mainstream, or does it just work for Beyoncé and Jay-Z?

Throwback Thursday: Leather So Soft

I credit Cash Money Records for doing so much for me during my developmental years, looking back…I don’t  know if that’s such a good thing now. This video was by far the worst thing that they ever did to me.

This edition of”Throwback Thursday” honors the worst music video I have ever seen in my entire life. If you have never seen Birdman and Lil’ Wayne’s music video for “Leather So Soft” please consider yourself blessed and highly favored.

I’m so sorry those blessings have to end today.

As you watch this music video please note the following:

  1. Violent dancing
  2. Fake guitar playing
  3. Tiger
  4. Interpreter
  5. Panther

Enjoy… Continue reading

Throwback Thursday: Go Head

In honor of Throwback Thursday (since this is what all the cool kids do) I want to start a new series called….. Throwback Thursday!

This series will be dedicated to moments in pop culture’s past that now directly correlate with personal memories in my life. These pop culture references vary. Sometimes it’s music, sometimes it a movie, sometimes it’s clothing, but I know that most things that are ingrained in my mind all have something to do with some type of cultural reference.

Come stroll down memory lane with me: Continue reading

The Power of Unpopular Opinion

I Don’t Mean To Cut You Off But…

I don’t really like Michael Jackson.
I don’t think he was the greatest pop star of all time. I don’t think he was the greatest entertainer of all time. His music is just okay.

This is my opinion.
