The great prophet Puff Daddy P. Diddy Sean Combs warned us back in 2009 of the b*tchassness epidemic sweeping the nation-unfortunately, none of us took him seriously. Almost a decade later, here we are, glued to our phones, watching Chris Brown and Soulja Boy threaten each other across the interwebs. In our defense, who among us could’ve ever predicted n*ggas would take it this far? We’re sorry, Puff.

You gotta live your life like you only get one!!! Spend less time doing what makes others happy. You gotta first make sure you’re a whole person and fulfilled. Of course you do good for others and help to fulfill other people, but you have to be at peace with yourself at the end of the day. When your head hits that pillow. As long as you aren’t harming anybody (or yourself), do what you want! Don’t be afraid to try new things. And don’t be afraid of what other people are going to say. People got mouths so they’re gonna talk regardless! Stay strong. Stay focused. Have goals. But above everything else, live your life. THINGS don’t make life worth living. EXPERIENCES and PEOPLE do.
And make sure when you die, you can say, “Yo. It was LIT fam!”
Wow. After weeks of internet buzz and built up anticipation, I was finally able to sit down and see this movie for myself. Last night, I joined some of Atlanta’s movers and shakers as we kicked back and enjoyed this awesome film. I’ll be the first to admit that it takes a lot to impress me, but after last night, I was moved. This film definitely lives up to its name.
Like many people, you’ve probably been wondering where Musiq Soulchild has been. Time and time again, since he stepped on the scene back in 2000 with his classic album Aijuswanaseing, the Philly native has delivered nothing but hits. Smooth, and pleasing to the ear, his music has always been so relatable, leaving a lasting impression with REAL music lovers all over the world. Now, the entertainer is trying something new. He’s switching things up. He’s reemerged as something none of us were expecting…a Hip Hop artist called “The Husel.”
“Character Matters. We are Accountable for Our Influence.”
I hear a lot of people people, especially celebrities telling people that they aren’t role models. If this were a year ago, I would’ve agreed. But now, I know that simply isn’t true. Every one is a role model to SOMEONE. You don’t have to be rich or famous to be a role model. Whether you’re working as a school teacher, a CEO of a major company, or a Pop Star, what you do and who you are matters. How you treat people means something. I know it’s difficult to accept, (I had a hard time accepting this) but somebody is always watching. And whether we like it or not, we have an impact on the world. In my opinion, this generation has lost sight of what it means to have character, integrity, HONOR. We are accountable for our influence, and we have to start acting like it.
