Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) My heart goes out to the family of Nipsey Hussle, to his fans, his community, and the millions of lives impacted by his words, and community upliftment. It is heartbreaking when another black man leaves this earth in such a violent manner, and definitely too soon. One can only wonder how much more work he would have accomplished,... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) It has been sad for many, and heartbreaking, to hear that rap artist Nipsey Hussle was gunned down in the same community he was actively working to uplift. It was even more disheartening to read that a gang member is suspected as the gunman as Nipsey Hussle was working very hard to help put a stop to gang violence on those very... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I have been blessed beyond measure to have been special enough that God allowed me to be loved, nurtured, and guided by not one, not two, but three grandmothers — my paternal grandfather, the original James Thomas Jones, was married twice. Before I go forward, I feel compelled to state that each of these great women poured... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Initially when I was told Cardi B incriminated herself by saying she drugged and robbed men I thought that was foolishness. Why would someone admit to something like that in this climate? I low-key defended her to the person that told me, because I found it hard to believe. I’m not a fan of her music for many reasons. A person... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) It takes a genius musician to get a guitar to do his talking. Gary Clark Jr. did that Saturday night at the Beacon theater in New York City. Sure, he sang and bantered with the audience, but when he wanted to get a message across, his flaming red guitar did the screaming and yelling. It had a lot to say, Clark rocked the house... [Read more...]

Filed under Education, Ent., Music, News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) There is a crude joke told by poor and working-class Black urbanites. The joke goes as follows. When someone from our “community” goes to prison, others humorously state that they are on their way to ‘college’. Put simply; this is our way of saying that the prison sentence is akin to receiving a scholarship to pursue... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Recently, R&B singer R. Kelly did an interview with Gayle King for CBS. Knowing his history with being put on the stove over these underaged girls, you’d think he’d avoid interviews in general. Even if he has a show, tour or album to promote just avoid interviews, man. Now with Surviving R. Kelly, his kingdom is starting... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Whether it’s on social media or conversations offline people are weighing in on R. Kelly. The Surviving R. Kelly documentary really did a number on the R&B legend’s reputation and that’s concerning. There’s Nothing New Here With R. Kelly No, this isn’t a “Leave R. Kelly alone!” stance, oh hell no.
