Look, Up In The Sky… It’s The Kitty Hawk Flyer!

Maaaan what is it with all these flying car joints as of late?

The Kitty Hawk Flyer is a new, all-electric aircraft. It is safe, tested and legal to operate in the United States in uncongested areas under the Ultralight category of FAA regulations. We’ve designed our first version specifically to fly over water. You don’t need a pilot’s license and you’ll learn to fly it in minutes.

History: The Cruel Ads Of Andrew Jackson And ‘The Master Class’

Full disclosure: This sh!t will probably make you cussin’ mad.

You’ve heard that former Presidents all the way back to the Founding Fathers of the United States owned slaves and did terrible things to Black people just ’cause with no just cause… right? Please tell me you know this. Well, if you ‘heard about it’ and sort of dismissed it as heresay, how about you take a read of the article linked below and see the $50 bounty ad that Andrew Jackson (yep, Andrew Jackson that was the President) put out for the capture of his “Mulatto Man Slave” wherein he offered “ten dollars extra, for every hundred lashes any person will give him, to the amount of three hundred.”

DAMMIT! So infuriating. I’d call him a son of a b!tch, but I actually like dogs. But I don’t like Massa Jacksun. Not a bit.

He was not the only one, of course. But this hard evidence was gathered – and must serve as a reminder – of what America at even its highest levels did to Black people, and how they viewed Blacks as less than ‘people,’ not so long ago. Read on…

‘Close Range’ With Ray Allen (Documentary)

Very interesting tidbit from Ray’s wife in there: What do the ultimate competitors do when they retire? That fire has to go into something. Fortunately for the NBA ultimate shooter, Ray Allen is a golfer… with some competitive pro-athlete retirees that golf. GQ covers that and much more in such a short docu-series episode.

Ray Allen is a living legend. He’s a ten-time NBA All-Star who has won two championships, in 2008 with the Boston Celtics and 2013 with the Miami Heat. He holds the NBA’s record for most three-pointers made, with 2,973 buckets. Since his retirement in 2016, Ray has shifted his focus – to fatherhood, golf, and an organic fast-food restaurant. Take a look into the life of a champion, and his obsession with greatness.

The Making Of “Strength Of A Woman” (VH1 Trailer)

Watching the trailer for “The Making Of: Strength Of A Woman” (debuting on VH1, May 2nd at 11pm EST) you get a sense that Mary J. Blige is laying it all on the line in a few ways. First, she mentions a couple of times that this “Strength Of A Woman” project she is dropping is about healing herself; sharing her struggles, not prescribing or preaching for anyone else. That more than infers a second; Mary putting her business all the way out there (which she has done before, but that “that’s my Becky With The Good Hair” line implies some SCANDALOUS storytelling is in store). Third, The Queen Of Hip-Hop Soul declares that this LP is the ‘real Mary‘… almost like a love-it-or-leave-it decision point will be laid out for the fans who cop. Risky, but hey, it’s Mary J; so folks will likely love it.

Now, we’d be pound foolish not to mention the coup of leveraging Mary’s brand in pushing an ‘album documentary’ timed around the release of “Strength Of A Woman” on VH1 where her target audiences (longtime fans of hers AND longtime fans of reality show level DRAMA) will be watching. Plus, peep all the contributors’ cameos, from Diddy to DJ Khaled.

There’s a reason the Queen is the most powerful attacking piece on the board. The Queen Of Hip-Hop Soul is on the move, starting with tomorrow’s release of “Strength Of A Woman” followed by this tell-everything documentary on May 2nd.
