Rah Digga, Lord Jamar, And Godfrey Get Into A Real Independence Day Conversation (Trailer)

Another ep of “Yanadameen.” Godfrey is a frequenter over on VladTV, as is Lord Jamar. Jamar gets up with the brother and brings him onto the Godcast. Got it!

Rah Digga puts a series of topical questions to Lord Jamar and Godfrey to get their thoughts in typically raw and unfiltered fashion. The first talking point is the protestor who scaled the Statue of Liberty in protest against President Trump’s hardline immigration policies; Godfrey praises the actions of the protestor but takes a moment to call out Mexicans for their anti-Black racism and highlight the fact that they’re getting their wake-up call now with Trump in office. Rah Digga also asks about the incident between Dame Dash and Lee Daniels over a 2 MILLION DOLLAR loan/investment. Was it right for Dame to step to Daniels like this?

Gary Vaynerchuk Speaks On Happiness (Video)

Of course Gary Vee is gonna talk about way more than ‘happiness’ in this vlog ep, but you can tell that dude is happy on the grind. Flossing a bit about having the office in London, as he should. Happy about that and other things…

Becoming happy is, in my opinion, a factor of whether or not you are valuing someone else’s opinion more than your own…

Super happy that I got to spend some time at the new VaynerMedia office in London over the past few days. Even though I didn’t get the chance to share a ton of the content with you guys, I think you’ll enjoy this episode 😉

Science: Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Take on Aliens And Why We Should Become A Multiplanetary Species (Video)

Worried about the possibility of aliens enslaving us based on the way WE (humans) have acted throughout history? You would not be alone. Great minds hold that opinion, too. Minds like Dr. Stephen Hawking (like many others) assume that any advanced culture would conquer one it finds inferior. Dr. Tyson respectfully (and optimistically) disagrees.

Neil deGrasse Tyson responds to Stephen Hawkings view on aliens. He also discusses artificial intelligence.
– JRE Clips

Great heady theoretical talk that we can all follow. Cool.
