The Martin Luther King Estate Battle in 5 Lessons

As a patriarch, the one thing you do not ever want is your kids arguing over what you left behind for them. Also, you do not want their issues to go public. Many people don’t realize that “home issues” need to remain “inside the home”. The outside world doesn’t need, nor deserve, the chance […]

Understanding The Power of Prayer

(Sidenote: this isn’t a post about religion. This post is about the importance of something being “bigger than ourselves”. When I get into it, you will finally figure out where I was going with everything.)

One faithful day at work, I was on “hall way duty” (making sure the kids went to class and not […]

Jordan Sneakers, Artwork by Zimmerman, Materialism, and Other Questions Answered

I can’t help myself. Diggame keeps asking these intriguing questions. Within myself, I have to give these insightful and intriguing answers. I could be writing about other things.

Hip Hop and Mental Health Part 2 – Getting Gucci with Kanye

This year has been an interesting one.
On one hand, I have had the pleasure in making posts about the help that people need with their mental health. On the other hand, I have seen more and more examples of people in need of a talk with a shrink. I didn’t make those posts to […]

Your Relationship is Unhealthy For You – Plain Truth 79

Oh, now this was one of those songs that went under the radar. Rza, better known as Bobby Digital, deals with relationship issues and domestic violence.

Men That Do Not Know What They Want Out Of Life – CCL 74

Growing up, my father made sure that I did things in his image of “being a man”. Whether it was “taking care of family” to “paying your bills on time”, he was particular about what he felt men were responsible for. Even when it came to relationships, he has a few ground rules. Things […]

Please Want Better For Yourself – Plain Truth 71

All feminine activities and foolishness aside, Marvin’s Room by Drake does explain how some people feel when they lose the ones they love. I don’t approve of the haterism and jealousy. However, I do admire the will to admit the feelings that do still exist. Drake actually gets honest with himself by explaining “she […]

Stop Beating Yourself Up – Plain Truth 69

Kendrick Lamar had it right with this jam right here. Some people just need to be left to their own devices. As much as you love and care for them, their burdens become YOUR burdens. When that happens, then there has to be a change. Either they lighten up the load OR you cut […]
