Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Nas released his long awaited-eleventh album Nasir last Friday, but it was met with mixed reviews. Fans raved about the style of production supplied by Kanye West and even loved the political awareness brought on by Nas. But the main criticism was that the lyrics were subpar while his energy was lacking. But even with all that... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I must admit the loss of life is very disturbing to my soul. Our children are being buried at a rapid rate; no one can predict the future, so we never know what could have come of them. I’m the first to admit, outside of a handful of artists, I couldn’t tell you who is new on the Hip-Hop scene. The direction of many of the... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I’m not one to dive into what I call “Super Fandom”. I don’t love any celebrity to the point of worship, and if we differ on music that’s cool too. Music, like art and literature, is very subjective. What moves on of us won’t make another budge at all. I don’t agree with fans of any artist that would shame another... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) One of the most discussed recent videos of the year was premiered recently by Donald Glover via his moniker, Childish Gambino. In the video, a shirtless Glover gyrates across the lot of a huge warehouse while an assortment of comical yet vengefully wretched acts of violence take place in the background. Commentators point to... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) There is a small part of me that feels for the man that lost his mother. As someone that lost a parent I understand that the very nature of that situation can drive a sane person mad. When you internally question yourself regarding the death of said parent like you are on trial there is always something found that you could... [Read more...]

Was Kayne West Right??

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) “When you hear about slavery for 400 years … For 400 years? That sounds like a choice.” Let’s see. The first enslaved Africans were brought to what later became the United States in 1619. Add 400 years to 1619 and that brings us to 2019. Are we still not enslaved? If the police can shoot a Black man 50 times... [Read more...]

Three mistakes Rapper Kanye West made.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Is it possible that Kanye West is rich and famous today and 99 percent of the “victimhood cheerleaders” on the left are not because he refused to accept the premise that a black man can’t get ahead in America? Is it possible that God, or in Kanye’s words, “the universe,” had bigger plans for him that couldn’t be... [Read more...]

Yeezy and Sleazy.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) “That boy done lost his mind” I can hear my late father saying after Kanye West’s twitter praise of his “dragon energy” brother Donald Trump. And, as surprising as Kanye’s support can be, I was even more astonished to find that public opinion polls show Trump’s support among black men at roughly 1-in-4. How can... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Some people you just can’t get to shut up. They will stand on what they believe, and they won’t care what “experts” or anybody else says about it. They’ll listen, but they won’t budge on what they know is true. For two weeks, President Trump and artist Kanye West have expressed love and affection toward each other.... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Life asked death: “Why do people love me but hate you?” Death said: “Because you are a beautiful lie and I’m the painful truth.” Kanye West’s incomprehensible and mindless comment that “slavery was a choice”, this along with his support of Trump have stirred up the wrath of many in the black... [Read more...]
