We recently, lost one of the greatest visionaries and directors of our time, the legendary John Singleton. The Hollywood vet passed away at the age of 51. Instead of focusing on the circumstances involving his death, we would rather celebrate his life and his work!
If you know anything about the man writing this article, you know one thing...I am a R&B fan! When I'm riding down the highway watching the sitting light flash before my eyes, the soundtrack for the expedition is usually a playlist full of slow jams. Whether I'm lounging around the house or getting dressed to hit the streets, I'd prefer to catch the mellow vibes of some 90s R&B than turn up to some trap music. With that being said, I thought it was only right that I put together a Top 5 List of my favorite R&B groups. To all you millennials looking to discover some good R&B, start with these groups and go from there!
If it is at all possible to OD on concerts, I think I may have accomplished that in 2017. When I tally up the number of concerts I attended in 2017 alone, it outnumbers the total numbers of concerts I attended in the 5 years prior to 2017. It is very possible the reason I attended so many concerts this year is because of the press passes and VIP treatment; but I mean c'mon son, it's VIP.
Over the years rap music has gotten a bad...well, rap. The music that has been seen as the voice of the streets has been accused of being misogynistic and sexist toward women. Traditionally, rap music's hard hitting, defiant nature didn't really leave much space for anyone to express love toward the ladies. I mean that's what R&B music was for right?
As of late, there's been a lot of discussion about whether or not Black History Month should be done away with. This is in large part due to some comments made by Clueless actress, Stacey Dash, on Fox News recently. I won't say I disagree with her entirely; I wish there wasn't a need for a Black History Month. In a perfect world, there wouldn't have been a need for it to begin with. This world, however, is far from perfect and Black History Month is still needed. So we've comprised this list of five reasons Black History Month is still very much necessary in 2016.
With just a few days left until Christmas, I have to be quite honest...this year doesn't exactly feel like Christmas season. I don't know, maybe because it feels like spring time outside, or maybe because people just don't get in the "holiday spirit" anymore, or because I don't have cable so I haven't been bombarded with Christmas ads every time I turn on my television. Who knows? All I know is that it's a few days before Christmas and I'm definitely not as excited about this time of year as I was when I was a kid.
