Personal lessons I learned that can be a stepping stone/guide to anyone.

Let’s revisit how we “rap” to women

Time for change: A woman’s reaction to anything a man says is her choice. Here we are with another overdue post about issues I feel need to be addressed with my fellas. As black men we are continually taught to control our emotions when dealing with cops, employers, teachers and more. Why aren’t we taught ...

Love x Pride

p.s I wasnt listening to Drake's "Scorpion Side B" when I wrote this. Strictly written for the youth dem. Bless up! This is for my younger 21-25 crowd. Fellas, pull up a seat, I think I qualify as an OG now lol. A few years ago I was in your shoes, with the perceived world ...
