1. I’d like to thank the members of N.E.R.D. for my new found mantra (and future tattoo): Fly Or Die. Fly Or Die is the title of their sophomore album which had a significant presence in my collegiate life. While reading Charlemagne’s newest book Black Privilege it hit me out of nowhere. In this world it’s fly or die. Either you do or you don’t. Continue reading

Yesterday, I downloaded Snoop’s BUSH album from iTunes (Support good music) and I wasn’t too sure about it if we are going to be completely honest. Snoop is one of the most consistent veteran Hip-Hop artists of our generation and Pharrell of the Neptunes, the sole producer of the project, had a crazy year in 2013 with back to back radio hits (I liked “Get Lucky” with Daft Punk and Nile Rodgers but Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” ANNOYED the hell out of me) so of course many would expect a dope project from the two given their past collaborative history. But I had my reasons for being a bit doubtful. Continue reading
