Preach On, Sermon: the Red Eye of Big K.R.I.T.

Big K.R.I.T. is an artist; one of the greatest of our generation at that. In this position, relationships are difficult. You’re buzzing, touring and focusing on building a career.

Preach On, Sermon: My Distaste of Online Dating

Preach On, Sermon: My Distaste of Online Dating

Online dating sucks, and I suck at it. Despite so many people turning to them, admitting that I’ve tried these sites still feels embarrassing. And several tries later, not a single thing has happened. No relationships, no friends, no nothing, which is why I suck at using them. I’ve gotten more chances off Twitter than, say, OkCupid. The most success I’ve had on a dating site was this year. I can’t tell you why I randomly decided to sign back up on POF, but I did. I dreaded every minute about it. Filling out the profile information was terrible. WHAT… continue reading

Preach On, Sermon: Ya Boy, 100 Bars & Failed Opportunity

Preach On, Sermon: Ya Boy, 100 Bars & Failed Opportunity

“I suggest you keep me healthy, West Coast,” Ya Boy says on the outro of his monstrous “100 Bars of Death.” It’s 2015. The song still resonates, but it begs the question: who failed to keep Ya Boy healthy? He was supposed to be outta here. The same position that, say, Ab-Soul is in should be where his popularity resides. Sadly, YB is merely a memory to many. The days of DJ Skee hosting his tapes are long gone. Even Jayceon couldn’t realize the gem he had back when Black Wall Street Journal Vol. 1 dropped. So, who failed Ya… continue reading

The Sermon’s Curation: Best Reads of the Week (2-16 to 2-22)

The Sermon’s Curation: Best Reads of the Week (2-16 to 2-22)

This week’s curation is pretty much full of Drake. Analyzing his newest mixtape, If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, is big on the internet. Is he really a legend? What does his lyrics (not necessarily just the new tape) really mean in art form? Another big topic is Cash Money, Birdman and Lil Wayne. Learn more about the lawsuit that Weezy is serving his daddy, and debate whether Puff Daddy or Birdman is hip-hop’s biggest mogul. I also tossed in a nice profile about Colt Cabana (indie superstar), and why the X-Men don’t matter as much (and how to… continue reading
