Hiplet: Now Hip-Hop Is En Pointe (Video)

Hiplet: Now Hip-Hop Is En Pointe (Video)



I will admit to turning a 'side eye' to Hip-Hop dance brought into a ballet milieu. Though I was not mad like the why-are-THOSE-PEOPLE-invading-our-artful-dance ballet purists. I was mad like F##K-their-fancy-shmancy-dancy-sh!t, we got our OWN legit dance practiced by the WORLDWIDE Hip-Hop Nation!

But seeing this helped me realize that whatever we do that aspires to LOVE, PEACE, UNITY, and HAVING FUN (word to Africa Bambatta and Soul Brother #1 Mr. James Brown) is a good thing.

A man of color forges a new art form that allows anyone to be down; first and foremost the have-nots and those previously left out. That art form grows, gets embraced by those for whom it was meant and is spread to, through and by everyone who enjoys it. Sound like a fa ...READ MORE

A Closer Look At The Story Of King Kong (Video)

A Closer Look At The Story Of King Kong (Video)



Talk about knowing what you are getting into. The folks behind the latest King Kong movie declare they are doing their adaptation in a way different way than the way the story has been brought to screen historically... the way this docu-short makes clear. The math on the story of King Kong to date, King Kong's Story = The Tragic History Of The Slave Trade.

Megaton mic drop.

Careful watching this one in [culturally] mixed company. True, the revelations in this expose clip won't be so much so to Black people contentwise. Rather, we're more surprised that someone actually 'said it aloud for everyone to hear.' But for any who end up screen-gazing in wide-mouthed astonishment - that someone could draw such distinct parallels between the Kong story and the history of ...READ MORE

3 Great Ways to Get Your Followers Engaged

3 Great Ways to Get Your Followers Engaged

Gaining followers sometimes can bee extremely hard especially if you want to gain followers the right way! When I say the "right way" I mean not showing your body, buying followers, not being ratchet and not being a thot! That's just me being extremely honest!

Some people use those methods as an easy way out but honestly you don't have to do all of that. Some people think I have a lot of followers and some think I don't. I always get asked, "how did I get so many followers on Instagram?"And honestly by promoting myself and cross promoting with people I've interviewed in the past.

I have three legit tricks that have helped me gain more followers and how I keep people engaged.

Target Audience
I simply know my target audience. I know their background and I know they like real blogs! I've tried doing the whole blogger theme thing and it's simply not for me. That's not what my audience want! They want me to simply bee myself, and not a typical blogger.

You have to know what you ...READ MORE

Dame Dash Reveals Notorious B.I.G. Wanted To Ditch Diddy For Jay Z & Roc-A-Fella

Music mogul Damon "Dame" Dash may have just dropped the biggest hip-hop shocker of all time. The former Roc-A-Fella Records co-owner revealed late rap icon Notorious B.I.G. planned on joining his record label.

In a recent interview, Dame Dash said Biggie Smalls wanted to eventually leave Bad Boy Records to join longtime pal Jay Z at the Roc.

"Biggie's plan was to give Puff and them like three more albums because that's what his deal is, then come sign with us, and we was gon' do The Commission. We were looking for like a Charlie Baltimore, it ended up being her, that wasn't our choice that was his. But, you know, that was what was gonna happen, or at least that's what was talked about very seriously. I think that's why he did a double album. Then he was gonna do a triple album, and he was gonna be out his contrac ...READ MORE
