D R O G A S Light – Lupe’ Fiasco

Lupe’ Fiasco is back with DROGAS Light. After several posts alleging that Lupe’ was retiring from the game, this album drops.

I must admit that Lupe’ was putting out sleepers for awhile, IMO. I have always been a fan of Lupe’. I liked his stance on certain subjects, his fearlessness when came to speaking his mind and his lyrical prowess. After awhile, I think, being in the industry takes a tole on artists like this and they tend to become a recluse and begin to HATE what they once loved. True fans understand but we’re the ones who tend to suffer because we’re left with listening to the same old album over and over and other artists who over saturate the game.

I’m happy to see that Lupe’ is back like he never left. The album opens with a banger and lead into NGL featuring Ty Dolla $ign and moves into other features with Rick Ross, Big K.R.I.T.  & others.

This is a solid project. The production is A1! Most conscious rappers tend to lean towards softer more solemn beats; Lupe’ brought the heat with this one!

Jidenna – B A M B I [TRK]

Jidenna is back with ‘Bambi’. The track is filled with island vibes and woes of a man who croons over losing “the one” who is aptly nicknamed ‘Bambi’.

Make America Great? “The Film | Dramedy”

Make America Great? “The Film | Dramedy

“It’s 2021, the beginning of the second term after the most anticipated Presidential election in 2016. The 13th and the 14th no longer exist.”

 

This film has a perceptive concept and will have you on the edge of your seat and waiting for what happens next, meanwhile laughing uncontrollably. This is a film that will demonstrate the thoughts of some in America right now during such a historic time.

 

The story of this film is that minorities have become illegal Aliens in an attempt to throw all disenfranchised groups in concentration camps, separating them from normal society as we know it. In Los Angeles, we meet a small group of runaways hiding out in an abandoned church debating how to get out the country. While the tone is overly dramatic and comical, it is through their conversations we learn about each character struggles with identity and self-acceptance. Although they butt heads in the beginning they ultimately form a bond of unity to survive.

 

The award-winning film writer, director and commercial producer Candice Vernon is set to premiere her newest body of work, “Make America Great?” this January 2017. Vernon is best noted for her work Apartment 309 co-starring Ice-T, featured in Elle Magazine, and many more. Vernon’s two episodic series that she wrote were semifinalist at the Sundance Episodic lab.

 

Candice Vernon dropped everything including her job as an Executive Producer in New York and moved to Los Angeles to use her voice as a tool to educate and entertain through media. Ever since Vernon has made this move the cards have been aligning in her favor. The trailer views for this film alone she has been offered an indie feature film to Direct and is being packaged to direct it by the end of the summer. Vernon is under the tutelage of Director Shyam Madiraju and TV writer/showrunner Eunetta T. Boone.. The past year a few notable accounts have followed Vernon such as: Pam Grier, Sundance Film Festival, Ava Duvernay’s Film Company, Difficulty People (TV Show), The Mindy Project (TV Show) and Hulu.

10 Things To Do on A Snow Day

10-things-to-do-on-a-snow-day

 

Cleveland, OH has the type of weather that sneaks up on you but somehow you’re always prepared. Our city can experience 3 seasons in one day, but we’re used to it. Just this week Cleveland Public schools shut down 2 days in a row for snow days and today we walked around in jackets avoiding melted puddles running from mounds of dirty snow.

Although, 2 days isn’t enough for Cabin Fever to set in, it’s still long enough to become restless from boredom.

I came up with a few ideas to relieve said boredom.

10 Things To Do on A Snow Day

  1. Catch up your favorite shows. Try Nexflix, Hulu, or your favorite streaming service provider.
  2. Catch up some reading. Try Amazon, Audible, or visit your local library or bookstore’s website for suggestions.
  3. Organize your closet. Watch a few YouTube videos or check out Pinterest for inspo.
  4. Tryout a few DIY ideas.
  5. Catch up a few Zzzzz’s. There’s nothing like sliding in a pair of cozy pajamas and curling up under a warm comforter.
  6. Journal. If you’re anything like me, you have a million thoughts and ideas swirling around in your head. A snow day is a great time to finally turn those thoughts and ideas to written plans for execution.
  7. Update your blog, website or clean out your overcrowded email.
  8. Give yourself a spa day. Try that new homemade mask, soak your feet, and use that new polish that’s been collecting dust on your nightstand.
  9. Text, call or email someone that you haven’t spoken to in awhile. Life is too short to forget those who you love and care for.
  10. GO OUTSIDE AND START A SNOWBALL FIGHT!!! What’s the point of having a snow day if you don’t take advantage of the snow!!
