A real Oregon wine story. More compelling than it sounds on the first read. And once you check out the trailer above, you can support the effort at

Red, White, and Black highlights the lives of minority winemakers who have begun changing the face of Oregon’s winemaking culture. This documentary delves into the challenges and accomplishments of winemakers of color and the LGBTQ community who have traditionally been excluded from the predominantly White, high-brow industry. This is a story about entrepreneurs of different backgrounds who have removed barriers in pursuit of their dreams thereby closing the narrow opportunity gap in Oregon. Despite the gravity of Red, White, and Black’s content, this documentary delivers with an upbeat tone, a cadence of storytelling and camera work that helps to uplift the consciousness of its viewers, its wine drinkers, and dreamers alike.

The military strength of the United States eclipses that of the armed forces of the next 20 nations or so ranked behind it… together! So, let’s say America’s lead is “comfortable” to say the least. What if we threw more of that military money at NASA instead of shrinking its budget? We might already be living on Mars or something.

Gifted Gab Performs “No Days Off” in Convenience Store for Swisher Sweets Artist Project (Video)

Three years ago I traveled to Seattle to cover the annual Bumbershoot Music festival. That trip turned out to be as much of a networking and new artist discovery as it was for festival coverage.  I was introduced to a multitude of artists and Gifted Gab is one that I told people about after seeing her perform live.  She has continued to work hard, releasing new music along with performing at shows up and down the west coast.  She even rocked out here in Atlanta for A3C 2016.  Well she has caught the eye of Swisher Sweets who have made her part of their convenience store sessions.  Yes the title explains exactly what it is Gifted Gab performing live inside a convenience store unannounced, unrehearsed, with real customers.  Gab definitely has the personality to pull this off.  So check out this cool footage where the Seattle emcee controls the crowd while they are grabbing a six pack and some swishers!

Young M.A Speaks On Her Lifestyle, Her Style And Influences As An Artist And More (Video)

The Hip-Hop poster child for “I Did It My Way”Young M.A… stopped by the Breakfast Club for a very interesting sit down. Totally agreed that the groundwork for her meteoric launch & rise for M.A has been laid. I especially liked that she admitted that at one time she considered changing who she was as an artist and person to get on; but she now realizes that the time has passed. Any of the majors coming for M.A now better come correct – the right dollar split and situation. Pay her and let her do what she do! Great interview.

Up-and-coming Brooklyn rapper Young M.A discusses being influenced by 50 Cent, realizing she was gay at a young age, how she’s been able to break through and much more with The Breakfast Club.

Kwesy Mojo “Burn The Industry” (Video)

It’s no secret that Hip Hop is held in a higher regard in a lot of places overseas than here in America. Kwesy Mojo was born and raised in Africa but now resides in the states.  He like most youths when they hear HipHop fell in love with it and sought to add his own twist to the genre.  The first visual off his latest mixtape titled Self Help is for the track Burn the Industry.  Shot in his native homeland Ghana he brings to life how he plans to shake things up and Burn up the Industry.  Directed by Kobe N. Debrah and co directed by Kwesy himself you see instantly that a high level of production was put into making this.  So if you feel some heat coming at you remember you were warned that Kwesy is coming to burn down the industry.  We all can use Self Help so do yourself a favor listen to the new Self Help mixtape by Kwesy Mojo.
