Wise Intelligent Speaks On Hip-Hop Music’s Move Away From Positive Messaging (Video)

And when Rodney King got the beating, heads responded properly!

“Fight The Power”… for those who really felt that song… it was way more than a song. It was an anthem, a call to action, a we-take-no-more-sh!t CHARGE for us! And ‘they’ do not want us getting charged up like that. THEY, in turn, will deliberately, but quietly, shut the rally down; by taking away the bullhorn so we no longer here the rally cry.

Maybe you don’t get me. But watch and listen to the Poor Righteous Teacher Wise Intelligent… You will.

Wise Intelligent of Poor Righteous Teachers talks about the deliberate effort to silence positive Hip-Hop.
– Boom Bap Nation

(See. I’m not mad at ‘mumble rappers’… But why can’t we hear more positivity to balance it out? You KNOW the answer: We hear what THEY want us to hear more of… and NOT that positive ‘ish. NO Brother. NO Sister. THEY don’t want you to KNOW much about that.)

State Of The Culture: Season 2, Episode 11 (Video)

You know what. There is some good, DOPE media being made out here nowadays. Not huge in scale, so some (read: many) might miss it. But I am watching, and highlighting it as I come across it. Much richer than a ‘Black Entertainment Tonight’… This episode of State Of The Culture is epic. Plus, the eye candy on the bookends (Eboni K. Williams & Remy Ma though… mm mm MM)!

On the 11th episode of Season 2, Joe Budden and co-hosts Remy Ma, Jinx & Eboni K. Williams sound off on the following topics: Kobe Bryant’s Legacy (6:42), Wendy Williams (34:19), Community heroes (39:20), Oscar’s diversity (40:45), Janet Jackson (50:40), Lil Wayne’s album ‘Funeral’ (54:12), Drake (56:32), Quentin Miller (59:58), Lil Pump retiring (1:04:37), Jussie Smollett being indicted (1:05:11), Who Said That?

Comedy: The SquADD Debates To Determine ‘The Best Rapper-Turned-Actor’ (Video)

Best Rapper-Turned-Actor? Quickest episode of Great Taste ever. It’s Will Smith. But I do like the other contenders they argue about on here. But, as always, the way they jank the entire HELL out of each other is what keeps me watching (and laughing) throughout the video!

The SquADD Debates About Which Is The ‘Best Sex Position’ (Video)

No music… just the sound of belly slaps!

Hahaaa! Put it down then, Kev!

And look: Precious (with her sexy azz) is BACK… with a vengeance! I mean, the whole SquADD is hilarious, especially in this episode. But Precious goes IN… with rants AND jokes when she it talking (plus, she got BODY for DAYS)!

Great Taste is BACK!!! Watch the final 10 episodes of Great Taste as the SquADD debates the best sex position. What position are you “rocking” with? #GreatTaste
– All Def

And yeah, I see her (my crush). Shout to Meg with her cute self… but she is on that A-word ‘ish for this one. And… um… that’s going to be a NO from me (esp. if I am with Meg or Precious, because gotta get some of that)! Besides, abstinence is a position ON sex; not a sex position. So, Meg is disqualified from this debate!

The SquADD Argues About Who Is ‘The Most Influential Artist Of The Decade’ (Video)

Okay. Rihanna and Bey are a good look for this ‘list’ for the debate… but Meg Scoop is soooo good looking. Periodt! Glad she is still with the SquADD. Had to say that. This whole argument is hilarious AND worthwhile. They make points AND punchlines.

Professional Speak On Athletes Coming Into Money & How Much (Or Little) Their Leagues Look Out For Them [Video]

I went from a dorm room… a dorm room… to a million-dollar house, and did not understand it, but had to act like I knew what I was doing every day…

Real, REAL talk about money & wealth here; the comings and [unfortunately] goings of it. The NFL’s responsibility to make sure retirees aren’t broke? Interesting. Who wouldn’t be in favor of, at least, the idea of the athletes not being broke after years of playing a game that leaves their bodies broken.

Tommie Harris, Clinton Portis and Jack Brewer discuss the money they made in the NFL with financial expert Michael Bapis.
– The Players’ Tribune

And the revelations that come from this discussion… DEEP! Great clip.

Rapper Young M.A Speaks, Giving “Lip Service” To Her Old Player Days & New Relation Ways (Video) [NSFW]

Why is this post up so late/early? No nudity, but the discussion is RAW AF! Plus, M.A gets a special ‘gift’ that probably should not be on display at work.

Rapper Young M.A joins the ladies of Lip Service this week to promote her new album ‘Herstory.’ The ladies cover a range of topics including phone sex, meeting people in the DM’s, taking virginities, and much more. The ladies even surprise Young M.A with a special gift! Enjoy!

Killer Mike making the revolutionary rounds. Beating his drum for real revolution… and why we ain’t ready. SELF reliance is key. If revolution tears DOWN the system, but we are reliant ON the system, how will we survive the revolution?

Killer Mike

Okay, ComplexCon got something here. I mean, that Revolt TV panel event (here) was pretty dope… but this panel event is FIRE!

The rappers-turned-businessmen share their personal perspective on the importance of buying back, rebuilding, and transforming those communities for the better.

Politics: Jeff Johnson Leads A Power-Packed Panel Of Pundits In Discussing Today’s Black Agenda And Campaign 2020 (Video)

This feels like what a TV station calling itself REVOLT should be doing with its platform, at least in significant part. Very varied viewpoints from and in the Black community are presented and explored here, which is a good thing. Folks (e.g. we and the people who want our votes) need to understand that we are not a monolith, a block, a sector, a checklist item, etc. for the campaign… nor do we necessarily ‘win’ when ‘our candidate’ (whatever that means) wins.

Go get a snack and a beverage, and come back focused. ‘Bout to be some real talk. Necessary talk!

T.I., Killer Mike, Candace Owens, Steven Pargett Of Trap The Vote, Katrina Pierson, & Tamika D Mallory have an open and honest conversation about politics, and the culture we live in today.
– REVOLT TV

Be forewarned: You will get agitated and frustrated. Hang in there. Especially because there is thoughtful, useful insight shared EVERY TIME we get a chance to hear from Killer Mike. Much respect and respek on the name Michael Render!

Adult Film Star Lisa Ann Speaks, Giving “Lip Service” To Her Career Choices & Anal Sex Practices (Video)

She is definitely one of my faves, even though I dare not try to create a ‘top 10’ list of porn. I watch too much adult content for that. But let’s just say I am VERY familiar and have been VERY ‘entertained’ by her naughty flicks over the years. Plus, I’ve watched several interviews of Lisa Ann. She seems pretty cool. And this sit down, she seems even cooler. Yep, Angela Yee and the ladies ‘go there’ and of course Lisa Ann is right there with them…

Legendary Pornstar Lisa Ann joins the ladies of Lip Service this week and it’s everything you would expect. Lisa schools the ladies on the proper way to have anal sex, why its so hard to produce gang bangs, her marriage at a young age, and much more. Enjoy!

The SquADD Argues About Which Was ‘The Best Saturday Morning Cartoon’ (Video)

Okay. First of all, Tacarra Williams. SEXY AF!!! If you don’t think I stopped this video as soon as I saw her name flash on screen and search for her IG… Well, I want to thank you for all the ‘credit’ you are giving me but WRONNNNNG!!!

MORE TACARRA WILLIAMS ON INSTAGRAM

Yeah, I’m a horndog, but I do this for you. The Honey Hunt is ALWAYS on. And Tacarra is a bonafide Honey (re-THICK-ulous)!

Moving on: The best Saturday Morning Cartoon debate is absolutely the right convo for this panel. And they picked some good contenders. I would lean strong against any opposition and say that the “X-Men” of the 1990s was one of, if not THE, greatest Saturday Morning ‘toons ever. Certainly the best of this bunch in my opinion. But you watch, and YOU choose/debate yours!

The SquADD debates Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, X-Men, Darkwing Duck and more as they discuss their all-time favorite Saturday morning cartoons. Which cartoon is the best?

LeBron James & Lonzo Ball Speak Their Minds On Magic Johnson’s Departure From The Lakers Organization (Video)

Enjoy catching ‘The Shop: Uninterrupted’ on HBO when time allows. Good chit-chat based on the barbershop paradigm. Nothing off limits. Of course, LeBron and Lonzo are certainly too smart to risk multi-million dollar paychecks with controversial public reactions, but they are pretty candid in the clip above where they discuss how they found out about Magic Johnson leaving the Los Angeles Lakers.

Lebron came to the Lakers after talking with Magic. Think he might find a way to walk away now that Magic is? Well, hit the jump.

Watch The Full ‘In Living Color’ 25 Year Reunion Live Stream (Video)

Score for Comedy Hype! Would have been great to be there with the comedic greats. There was NOTHING that could touch these folks’ show when they were really on. Even if they called it a ‘Black SNL.’

Keenen Ivory Wayans, Kim Wayans, Shawn Wayans, David Alan Grier, and Tommy Davidson sit down to discuss “In Living Color’s” legacy at 2019 Tribeca Film Festival.

Enjoyed “Hollywood Shuffle” back in the day. Now I gotta go find a copy of that “Partners In Crime” followup to watch.

Food: Which ‘Secret Menu Item’ Is The Best? (Video)

Animal style! Never heard of that, so I would be an In-And-Out-of-towner dude. But that Chik-Fil-A secret shake… I should know that one. I am ALL about the Chik-Fil-A menu. Gotta ask and see about that.
