There are often debates about how much a guy should spend on a first date. The answers that I’ve seen range from absurd to completely absurd! I’m often at a loss for words when I hear this stuff. I’ve got a story that should give ladies an inside to what we go through when it comes to these expensive dates and you’ve done nothing to earn it. There was a girl that I was really feeling, her and I would often talk. She had an ex she broke up with like 3 months ago, so I figured things should…

At the time that I started writing this, it is 4:58:21 on July 11, 2015. I wrote that down to say that this moment in my life will never happen again. It will never ever be 4:58 and 21 seconds on July 11th, 2015. Every moment in your life is precious, especially when you’re busy. So if someone decides that they want to waste your time, than yes, I believe you have a right to be upset. When someone is trying their best to achieve something in their life, that normally does not happen overnight. It takes years of precious…

You know, one thing that is always a topic in the black community is hair. Whether it’s about black’s joking about naps and weave, or talking about how someone has good hair. For some reason hair is one of the most important things, and I just don’t understand it. While I was at work an older black man came up to me and was just staring at me. So naturally I was uncomfortable, so I asked him “What’s up man?” He was just staring my hair down, then he said “man, what you tryna do? Kill those naps with that…

You know when I first started embarking on my own, I was told this “Don’t take business personal.” It’s truly hard to do that, especially once you’ve put your heart and soul into your dreams. You have aspirations of not only helping yourself, but possibly helping others as well. So you sweat and grind just to be able to present this to someone only to have them tell you that it’s not good. You feel as though these people have just told you that you weren’t good enough, and you almost want to quit. The reason why you’re truly feeling…

You know it’s tough to get up for work, you’re barely awake, and the last thing you want to do is think. Sadly, that’s all you do as the light mercilessly makes you wait. I know EVERYONE has had these thoughts before. “Shoot, I’m gonna be late for work!” “Why is the radio playing such wack songs?” “Damn, I forgot my phone cord, NO MUSIC.” “Damn, people really do get up early just to go running. Do I have that kind of will power?” “Why is this light taking so damn long?! No one is coming from the other side!”…

People, Wayne is here to reintroduce himself and man does he deliver! For years Lil Wayne has been disappointing us, he seemed to have been a little loss, but it was probably something he had to go through. Lil Wayne truly seems to be a more mature adult, rapper, and business man, and he is basking in that on this album. First let’s start with this flow. Wayne is back on his A-1 with this one. He’s back to riding the beat and getting your head nodding the whole way through. Man it’s truly a breath of fresh air to…

The beyhive is a complicated thing, especially for a male. You see so many females devote their lives completely to Beyonce and it frustrates a lot of guys. It frustrates you because you consider yourself a huge Beyonce fan, and you could see yourself as being in the Beyhive. It’s just that looking like those crazy girls in the Behive is out of the question, so you keep quiet during Beyonce debates. But you know good and damn well you got something you want to say. The worst thing is that you know it’s ok to be apart of the…

The long weekend was coming to a close and I was getting ready for the work week. So I called my dad and told him “I sincerely do not feel like going to work.” He simply told me “Welcome to the real world.” I think it’s absolutely absurd that this is what so many of us consider the real world. The corporate way of thinking has truly weaved itself into the fabric of this nation, and it’s made everyone’s ambitions go down to sewage levels. If living in the real world means being miserable every time you get up in…

As the Independence Day festivities begin to come to a close and everyone begins to get ready for the work week, I just have to wonder how free we truly are. I was downtown, where a festival was being held, and I couldn’t help but shake my head. I saw people showing how patriotic they were by simply waving the confederate flag instead of the American flag. Either they don’t know, or they don’t care about what that flag represents, but it’s truly embarrassing. I read something that said “The black community is often forced into immediate healing, without truly…

You know, when people look at Eminem, all they see is a troubled white guy who hates his mom, loves violence, and can rap good. Eminem is had far more impact than that, in both the white and black communities. He’s proved himself to be a legend, he’s gone through some of the best and has come out on the winning end. Eminem has scratched and clawed his way to the top, and the respect that he’s garnered is endless. He is a walking example of someone who is going to remain himself, and that will make both sides uncomfortable.…
