MTV Video Music Awards – Fun, Flash, and Fuckery

I don’t know why I do this to myself. Wait, I lied: I do it for you all. I do it for the “fans” that I imagine I have. I also do it for the sake of doing it. This pays no money. Most people don’t pay me any mind. But for those that […]

Manti Te’o and the Catfish Scam – Plain Truth 46

Now this song is another one of those classics that cannot be denied. It is so classic that there is a hand-clap-gesture that people do with this song. Plenty of rappers have sampled its instrumentals. Plus, it precedes the inclusion of social media and the internet into society. Thus, it is safe to say […]

The Art of Self Confidence – Plain Truth 40

B. Rabbit Eminem came hard with this track right here. This is the song about getting over yourself and becoming the person you need to be. This song is about capturing the moment. This moment is about clearing the hurdles. Sometimes, success is all about realizing that you have to do what you have […]

After Going Hmmm: My response to Diggame – Plain Truth 32

Some will wonder why I’m answering someone else’s questions. Well, Boss Man Diggame (Of Ashy 2 Classy) came up with these questions to make us think. Personally, I always wanted to answer rhetorical inquiries. Plus, I can entertain you all. So, in my eyes, this situation was a win win.

Peep my answers and be […]

Sex Over Relationships – Plain Truth 25

Now THIS was just an interesting song altogether. Maybe it was my age when it was popular (teenage years). Then again, I think it was the fact that they were talking about “risqué” topics. Sex was slightly taboo during the 90’s. There was overt sexuality out there. However, talking about it makes a bigger […]

Compatibility is Overrated? – CCL 39

Many times, people think of having a relationship with someone that is compatible with them. Easily, they want to get with someone that has their same interests and enjoyments. When you match up with someone that likes what you like, it is usually easier to date. This tends to lessen the conflict at certain […]

Getting Lazy In The Relationship: Plain Truth 18

I wonder how many of us remember this Big Daddy Kane jam? All the ladies could recall BDK doing the dance moves and making motivated lyrics. Plus, the message was pretty clear: BDK was the man for the job. What did this job entail? Oh, that is easy: he was a principal of pleasure […]

Just Plain Truth 2: Different Types of Love

Can you start love over? Miles Jay wanted to back in the 80’s. Maybe people can. Or maybe, just maybe, people need to handle the situation from where it is at the present moment.

What options are available when you and the companion you are with love differently? In which one seems happy but the […]

Good Ole Days: What Once Was Will Never Be (CCL #26)

If you live in America (especially within the African American community), you have noticed the influx of commentary about “divorce rates”, “single women epidemic”, and “men not being worth the effort”. I know that it seems to be cliché at this very moment. However, there are some serious concerns for the viability of relationships […]

Seeking the Infinitely Impossible: Imperfection within Seeking Perfection (CCL 18)

                Growing up, I always worked to make things happen the way “I felt” they should happen. I tried my hardest to make sure things “worked”. Whether it was at school, in relationships, or even at certain jobs, I wanted things to “roll smoothly”. I had the thoughts of the pretty wife, […]
