The last couple of weeks have been really crazy for me with the school semester coming to a fast end. I’ve been bombarded with class projects, presentations, and studying for finals.  It’s all been a bit much when you factor in the rest of my constantly moving life; family,

"...I came from what they call a broken home but if they ever really called it a house, they would have known how wrong they were. We were working on our lives and our homes dealing with what we had not what we didn't have. My Life has been guided by women, but because of the

Erykah Badu’s latest album “New Amerykah, Part 2: Return of the Ankh” is finally here & I’m all in! Of the 12 tracks, I am cracked out 11. I’m sorry, but I just cannot get into “Jump In the Air and Stay There.” Lil Wayne is way too annoying and roach like in a

This evening I visited the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History for the Black Women Rock event, which was hosted by Detroit's foxy poet Jessica Care Moore. While enjoying the sites & sounds, I snapped a few images of FluxPhonic during their 1st performance. Yo

I had all the best intentions of waking up at 9am today to fix myself breakfast, & prepare for my 1pm photo shoot with Detroit rock group Fluxphonic. In my head the plan was solid! Well, it all went to hell when I woke up at 11am. I jumped out of bed, rushed to get dressed

I love when Negro pop culture blogs do those “who rocked it better” posts & always wondered if I would do that here. Well I’m not exactly out looking for fashion trends etc but I couldn’t pass this opportunity up. So anyway, I ask you, who rocked “Island Life” b

When I was a boy, I used to make mix tapes all the time from the radio. I thought I was a pro at it! I never caught the commercials or the DJ talking. This made my mix tapes popular with the ladies. Mix tapes required thought, good timing & effort. Making drag & drop

2010 is shaping up to be the year of good Negro music. By now, the entire world knows that Sade released her latest album “Soldier of Love” last week. An album that was 10 years in the making & well worth the wait! Interestingly enough, even the hip-hop world has been f
