For the last two seasons, Issa Rae has done an incredible job of portraying the semi-bougie, Black millennial experience. From brunches to bedrooms, Insecure is a must watch because it’s so relatable, and so on point. Season 1 was definitely full of gems, but this season, there were a couple of things that I think we should all take note of.
I love me a good biopic. I think most people do. Who wouldn’t jump at the chance to get a behind the scenes look at their favorite celeb’s MESS? The last time Black America got the opportunity to enjoy a well put together biopic, it came courtesy of a highly unlikely source-BET. There’s no debating that the New Edition biopic was AMAZING, hitting the mark with the script, cast, styling-the whole nine. So it got me thinking-there are a couple of celebs who deserve a biopic in the very near future. Just as long as Lifetime doesn’t have anything to do with it, these stories have HUGE potential to go down as classics!
These days, it’s not often that I’m impressed with a newcomer in the rap game. But I think the tables have turned. I’m kinda diggin’ young Donny Bravo. Check out his track “Police Man.” I think you’ll like it too.
Also, for more from Donny Bravo, check out his single “Whole Lot of Love” feat. 112’s Q Parker on Bossip
Hey Kool Kidz! “Husel Music” is finally available to the masses! Featuring tracks with T-Pain, Rah Digga, Bone Crusher, Pastor Troy, and more, this is a MUST LISTEN.
The lead single “Yeauh” which has gained over 10K listens via Soundcloud and counting, is one of my faves. “Husel Music” is filled with hard hitting beats, complete with uptempo vibes that will have you dancing in the car, to in the club to in your house! It is available via his website www.iamagroup.com and via iTunes HERE
“Saying we rock is a response to our neglect.” That’s a quote from #BlackGirlsRock founder and executive director Ms. Beverly Bond. Bond, a visionary and social innovator has changed the game in more ways than one. Noted as one of the most influential DJ’s and trendsetters of our time, Bond is now taking the world by storm by empowering not only Black youth, but also Black women with BGR!. In 2010, Beverly Bond partnered with BET to share her BLACK GIRLS ROCK! vision with the rest of the world, and last night, we had the pleasure of taking part in the experience! Here are my top 10 moments that ROCKED from BGR!
