Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) When I was growing up as a youth in the YouTube era (2005-2011), downloading music was the not just a thing to do, it was the thing to do. It was that or buying the music from iTunes. We chose the former route. During this time, songs would take the time to build an audience, starting with internet leaks to gauge its popularity.... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Much fuss is being made about the state of rap music today. Many fans my age (25) and older have a bitter taste in their mouth about rappers that have come out the past few years. Their names? Lil Uzi Vert, Desiigner and de facto leader of the pack, Lil Yachty. Yachty, along with the two aforementioned rappers have collectively... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) As I write this letter, I can’t help but express my frustration and concern for “US.” I also can’t help, but question my contribution to the status of where we are. I understand that I, too, have been guilty of doing the very things that put US here. Even still, right now, the state of our community is more alarming... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) These days in our community, when you walk around the hood, you will see so many of our young African boys in this country growing up with single mothers and it’s egregious. What pisses me off the most about this single mother epidemic that is currently happening in our community is that it’s being force fed down... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) We have so much to consider as a collective community. Our kids need us to fight for their right to a competent education in a safe environment. We have a President that is about to be sworn in that does not carry our interest at all. He has appointed an Attorney General that has a past laced with the support of racial injustice.... [Read more...]

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

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) J Cole’s new album “4 Your Eyez Only” is a thought provoking. It shows the growth of Cole as a storyteller. The amazing concept of the album is from the first listen you’d think maybe it’s about him…or you’d ask yourself did Cole sellout. However, when you listen again you’d realize he’s allowing the dead an... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I guess anyone with an album that claims to be a rap artist can be considered a “lyricist”. Maybe having some degree of money means one can degrade other working people. I guess disrespecting black women simply trying to do their job is okay when you consider yourself a rapper…regardless of how low grade you are. If you... [Read more...]

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

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) April 21, 2016 we were forced to say goodbye to the man we know as Prince. To me that was one of the darkest days of this year. How do I acknowledge the passing of an artist whose music meant to much to my life, and whose music saw me through so any rough times? I know I’m not the only person that feels this way, but I feel... [Read more...]
