De La Soul Reveals: It Wasn't Always Roses In 'The Daisy Age' (Video)

WAIT! Before you play this interview, look at the freeze frame (esp. at Pos). The expressions captured... if there was ever an image conveying exactly the opposite of what you would think of a clique/movement called The Daisy Age... that has to be it, right?

It follows that in this clip, the De La Soul trio goes deeper in depth about what most heads already know: The flowers did not really smell as sweet as we thought back then. Listen as they touch on some things you heard and saw, but probably dismissed because you believed in something beautiful... a Hip-Hop family of artists growing in a Garden of Eden of sorts. They weren't as tight-knit as we thought. There were actually comparatively few collabos coming out of the collective. Wowww.

Every garden has its weeds though. ...READ MORE

Your Potential...

Your Potential...

Life is often described many ways. Did you ever stop to think that life is biased? Yes, life is biased toward the positive. Just think, you can only fall so far, but there is no limit to how high you can soar. There are points at which life cannot get any worse, but there is no point at which things cannot get better. It is true that you can only lose so much, but there is no limit to what you can gain.

With every setback that life gives you there comes a real opportunity to grow and move forward. The same with every triumph, further triumphs become more likely. You have to realize that in every situation there is positive potential.

Yes, the risks are there. Yet the risks are finite. Possibilities are infinite. Consider the incredible upside potential of your own life. No matter where you are, no matter what circumstances you find yourself in, your possibilities always outweigh your problems. It is your perspective that will unleash your potential. Realize that those positiv ...READ MORE

Diddy Arrested For Assaulting UCLA Coach!

Diddy Arrested For Assaulting UCLA Coach!

Diddy was arrested yesterday for allegedly assaulting one of the football coaches from UCLA. He was watching his son Justin perform some practice drills while he was getting... lets say some pretty tough critique from one of the coaches. He went into the facility offices to speak with the coach and that is where the alleged assault happened. Diddy was arrested around 12:30 p.m. for suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. The weapon? A kettlebell. The charges were updated late last night to 3 counts of assault with a deadly weapon, 1 count of making terroristic threats, and 1 count of battery. Police say that no one was seriously injured. He posted bail and was released at 9:50 p.m.

Diddy, Diddy, Diddy...now what if you're banned from ever seeing another game in your son's college career? I know we can all loose it sometimes when it comes to our kids (remember Taraji P. Henson's tongue lashing against the officer who wrote her son a ticket only to find that there was marijuana an ...READ MORE

On June 13, 2015, Malinda Tyson, Robert McGee, Sean Long, and David Yarbrough presented Chi Circa 1989 at The Promontory in Chicago. This musical tribute to House, Hip Hop, and R&B featured DJ Sean Legend, DJ Yella, DJ Alicia, and myself DJ Kenny B.

"You Decide" by Tanya Miller-Holland

"You Decide" by Tanya Miller-Holland

#MotivationalMonday

Proud member of Blacktopia Tanya Miller-Holland wants to share some words of wisdom with other members of Blacktopia about the choices they have to make in their lives. 

You decide - You can decide how you feel about the world. You can decide how you feel about each day. You can decide what your attitude will be.  In your ability to decide there is great power.  You can decide how much to let things get to you. You can decide what to do and what not to do. You are not a victim of what happens to you. You are the result of the way you interpret and deal with what happens. You are the results of your choices. You are not stuck in any particular pattern or situation, unless you choose to be. You are free to make of this moment, and every moment, what you will. Decide right now to make it outstanding!
