The Fight for Light

The Fight for Light

This weekend I had a wonderful holiday retreat at my brother's home in Springfield, Massachusetts. Each year he goes all out with his festive décor, but this year he took it to a whole new level. In his front yard you can find everything from your typical toy soldiers and reindeer to a fully illuminated elephant and hot air balloon. Upon my arrival I could see that he clearly had the rest of his block beat with his elaborate display...

That is until his neighbors came out on that sunny Friday afternoon, and even the following soggy Saturday morning and got to work. My brother and my brother in law peeked through the windows and the door like super sleuths. I teasingly told them that they could easily be the stars of a new hit reality show that might be called, "Christmas Light Wars: Springfield Edition." They kept me thoroughly entertained throughout the weekend with their silliness, snickers and sneers about how their neighbors were trying to copy their seasonal style. I couldn' ...READ MORE

Chicago vs. Chiraq: It's not Spike Lee's fault

Chicago vs. Chiraq: It's not Spike Lee's fault


The name Chiraq just kind of popped out of thin air. No one staked claim to it. Based on statistics as it relates to the deaths of soldiers in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, it made sense. Chicago, which is compared to Iraq in the popular moniker, has always been riddled with violence. "Chiraq" is not some new phase that is happening because of the youth. It is in the nature of the city; it is in the nature of many cities across America.

When I first heard the term Chiraq, I didn't like it. I knew what it meant to the city as a whole and what it means to the inner-city more specifically. The term promotes visuals of war, flying bullets, fire, fear and destruction. I was one of the individuals speaking against this moniker because I didn't want people thinking those types of thoughts about my beloved city. Fast-forward and Chief Keef becomes the newest rap music sensation promoting a new genre of rap music called Drill. Drill comes off as a dark and eerie form of production wit ...READ MORE

The Remix (11-21-15) @The_Black_Amigo in the Mix and The Billboard Top 10 Rappers





Download Entire Show

In this episode of The Remix, @The_Black_Amigo came through and did a dance music set.

Later we (Big Dee, Kool Kila and Yogi) discussed the Billboard Magazine's Top 10 Rappers List. It is funny how over time perspectives have changed. So many great MCs were left off of this list. We scrutinized and bantered about this article. Good conversation piece.

Learning to Keep My Mouth Shut

Learning to Keep My Mouth Shut

I think often times we talk and react to every situation that doesn't need a reaction. If you are stubborn like me and always feel like you need to defend yourself all the time. Well, I am right here with you.

I don't know why I always feel like I have to protect everything that comes out of my mouth or if someone is debating with me I have to always keep going. But I'm learning to let certain things just go. Everything and every person doesn't need a reaction from you.

My story: I am a stubborn Scorpio and if things don't go my way, I will have a BF! I've realized that I let a lot of people get to me. I reacted to things knowing that I know this person's personality and that they will not change. It is best to pick your battles and every battle you don't need to bee in.

This year as a goal I am really trying to not always have to defend myself and react to things. Because after every reaction there is a consequence. It can either go great or terrible ...READ MORE
