Campaign 2020: Watch A Quick Recap Of The Biden Vs. Sanders Debate (Video)

Okay, so now that we have boiled down the HUGE field of Democratic Presidential candidates to two, Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden, the choice is an actual ‘choice’… Now, watch the “boiled down” version of Biden and Sanders’s first one-on-one debate. And get ready to vote if you have not already made your voice heard in this race.

Former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) debated each other for the first time on March 15. Here’s what you missed.
– Washington Post

Of course, there was more to it than this. This is a gist. If you want to dig for real, I am sure you can watch the whole thing on-demand a la your local cable provider.

Politics: Now The Choice Is Clear For Democrats. It’s Bernie Sanders Or Joe Biden (Video)

Okay, so now we have thinned the herd of Democratic opposition for President Trump’s position in 2020. I was clearly on my #FeelTheBern with Senator Sanders last go ’round, but now Papa Joe Biden is in the race for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Presidential race; Barack Obama’s Veep and right hand man. What to do?

I’ll leave the who to you. But the what… you gotta VOTE! My state’s vote is coming up. And I will be voting for one of these guys, so I really have to study up. Up first (above), I am putting my ‘incumbent’ choice, Bernie Sanders. Hit the jump to see Joe Biden’s speech.

One Vibe Africa Presents: Year Of Return (Trailer)

From the U.S. back to Kenya. Yes indeed.

You KNOW we are about travel abroad (e.g. from The States to overseas destinations). But this one hits home. As in Mother Africa, being home to ALL humanity and civilization. And this… this is epic. Of course, you know plenty of Sisters and Brothers who have declared that ‘one day’ they are going to make that pilgrimage back Home. Making it a big deal; maybe ‘too big’ a deal. But what if that ‘pilgrimage’ was less of a ‘trip’ to take. Like, let’s just say the family, the homies, the homegirls… are going to make it to an awesome event… and take in some of The Motherland while over that way. We could do that, right? We already do it for other festivals.

And like those other festivals, maybe we make it a yearly thing; or trips more often if we find things over there that draw us back.

Moving Madaraka Festival from Seattle back to Kenya signified the importance of not only arranging for individuals to travel back to Africa as it was with the case of Ghana’s year of return initiative, but getting significant events back to Africa and keeping them in Africa as a way to build a sustainable bridge allowing people of all backgrounds to travel to Africa to enjoy a festival of a lifetime, immerse themselves in the African culture, and inspire global change and collaboration towards mitigating climate change, which does not only threaten the climate but is an existential threat to our music, culture, and livelihood.

Dope music and culture do it again. Let’s get together; for the community and the cause. It’s a Vibe. One Vibe Africa! Matter of fact, why not show love and SUPPORT right now: Cop the EP (linked below) #ForTheYouth #ForKisumu #ForKenya #ForOurWorld

Hit the jump for more on that. The fam Mazzi really blessed with the knowledge on this one. Knowledge and blessing right to mobile #Mobilize

D Smoke – “LA Clippers vs Miami Heat Halftime Performance” (Video)

Lowry’s with black pepper. I’m fully seasoned!

You know, come to think of it, D Smoke is rapping like he’s rapped to thousands before. Solid performance here. I could actually see him holding down a halftime slot at the Super Bowl. The talent, energy and swagger… already big time. Given time, grind, and marketing push (of course), D Smoke could be a real force. That last element, the marketing, is probably what’s needed to wake this crowd up a bit more; because they got a show for sho’. Most times the masses have to be told to act like they know though.

Yeah, I said it.

Keep it pushing, D Smoke. Great performance during that Deontay Wilder entrance at the big Fury vs. Wilder rematch, too.

Gary Vaynerchuk Speaks On What Is Really Important: Happiness (Video)

Just in case you need a bit more help in the “What Do I Have To Be Grateful For?” department, listen to what the GaryVee has to say. The real game is HAPPINESS, people. Reset your sights and go for that. That money and bling-and-thing game… your ‘score’ will NEVER be high enough when you hear that final buzzer (playing a no-win game sets you up to lose). Go for happiness.

Gary says it better. Check him out above.

We put money and financial success on a pedestal at the expense of our own happiness. So many of you would be much happier if you quit your current job that you hate and made 20% less doing something you actually love every day of your life. Of course, we all need money to survive but once you are living reasonably, the money will not make you significantly happier.

Advice: Gary Vaynerchuk Says If Your Social Media Is Not Popping… It Is YOUR Fault (Video)

Shout to #ThisChrisEdits over on YouTube. I’ve been looking for this, at least clips of GaryVee at A3C last month. But check it out: Above, you can see the whole talk!

Mr. Gary Vaynerchuk knows his stuff about following attention. When he came to the A3C conference in Atlanta, he spoke about CONTENT, CONTEXT, and HUMILITY.

Now living in the era where content is KING , and context is QUEEN, Gary Vaynerchuk knows where the under-priced attention is of the people that you could potentially sell to in the future.

He’s been proven to be right over the past decade, so why not execute?

Listen closely, for he has some great information that he doesn’t mind giving away for free. All that we have to do is EXECUTE!!

Music in the intro was made by myself, and I was also the editor and videographer of this video.

Note to self: Get my LinkedIn and TikTok game up… STRONG… NOW! SO much WISDOM in this clip!
