Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I’ve been racking my brain for years trying to figure out why black entertainers are expected to be great role models and leaders. It’s interesting that only within the black community does one who seeks “success” owe something back to the black community.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Nicki Minaj, aka Onika Tanya Maraj, disappoints me.  As a fan of quality hip-hop, I immediately concluded that Nicki Minaj is every bit as talented as her male counterparts.  Her flow is smooth, creative and powerful, and she could easily make hit records and perform battle rap at the highest levels.  Most rappers can’t... [Read more...]
