It happens to be Black History Month, now it can be debated how much we need this month and even how significant it is. I’m going to use almost the same argument I’d make for Valentine’s Day (because tbh how significant is V Day really) Black History Month is 1 month of 12 that gives people the collective spirit to embrace being black the same … Continue reading Black Recent Month
Let’s just all pretend that I’ve been posting blogs and that uni hasn’t stopped my progress 🙂 Now I’m EXTREMELY opinionated, some would call it caring to much but f that cos turning a blind eye to what everyone is doing is why we’re living in this world of sin. That line ironically leads me to something I hate girls that tweet about wanting a Jay-Z … Continue reading That’s Just The Way It Is
Damn it feels so weird to be typing again, I’ve missed blogging so much but you know how university gets. I had to work on my dissertation but FINALLY I’ve finished so I can come back and rightfully take back the game! You know you missed me Mike and Robert Well, well, well what do we have here. If you know the saying ‘young tings … Continue reading Just Beat It, You’re Not a Smooth Criminal
This post needs your FULL attention! Not because there’s any controversy like last time but because I really want to speak on something important and attempt to spark a necessary conversation. Potential Power! Black people for as long as I’ve been alive have been oppressed, have been at the bottom and have been basically powerless. I was in a discussion the other day and someone … Continue reading No One Race Should Have All That Power
We are back again with a topic that we should all have fun discussing. Quite frankly we’re only here because of Oloni, her meddling threads and frequent female resistance to logic. Funny enough this blog was supposed to be a piece advising hoes to stop hoeing and to ask you lovely people to not be like the girls that replied to Oloni’s thread that think doing … Continue reading Oh You Want to Be Equal Equal: We Aren’t Built to Be Equal Pt. 2
This blog may leave a very bitter taste in people’s mouths, I’ll be throwing out ideas and thoughts I’m sure some of you won’t want to hear but I’ve always vowed that on my blog I won’t censor myself or cater to others. Love-Hate Religion is a beautiful thing, it provides people with a lifestyle and a beacon of hope that is unmatched but I … Continue reading Preying On You
It’s probably just me but I’m not liking these long breaks in between my blogs I can’t lie smh. As much as 2018 has been good to me by finally giving me a job, it definitely is an adjustment I need to make cos my free time is more limited. BUT when I’ve been gone for a while I always try to come back with … Continue reading Discipline or Abuse
With the release of Drake’s new album he gave us a lot of gems like him asking if Keke loves him but none greater than track 4 “Emotionless”. Drake painted a picture of a few different types of people that really only live for social media, instead of their own happiness. Due to how I am I can’t relate to these silly acts but we … Continue reading What’s Your Life Worth
Guess whose back, back, back Back again, gen, gen. After a week of struggling to think of a topic to discuss because quite frankly the TL and life as whole has been boring. I finally came up with an idea… I used Rhea Ellen as inspiration and thought why not do a blog on things that I hate which annoy me. Now I can’t lie … Continue reading I Hate It When
Through blogging I’ve been given many opportunities, one that was really special to me was when I was invited to do my first university talk at Northampton University called ‘Dear My Black Kings’ with Keith Dube aka Mr Exposed. Not a lot of guys turned up to the event at all, why? I’m not sure but that didn’t stop us from having a great and … Continue reading Am I That Much of a Threat?
“Hold on wait a minute ya’ll thought I was finished”… What a great way to start off my comeback blog after I haven’t posted in a while and of course… FREE MEEK! It’s only right I come back with some fire because a lot of people have suggested I write more controversial topics and what’s more controversial than triggering some females. “Girls are finished” Guys … Continue reading We Aren’t Built to be Equal
Public Service Announcement ! *No female’s feelings will be hurt in the making of this post* (or at least I hope not) Right now I know the title doesn’t make sense but here I am to break it down… A masquerade ball is a type of high status party in which the participants wear masks that will conceal their identity. In this day and age … Continue reading A Masquerade Ball
*DISCLAIMER* this blog is kind of different from my previous ones, in a sense that I am venting and ranting about my feelings so it may not be the most politically correct or censored piece of writing but sometimes this is necessary… so without further a do. Age is a construct that has been around since forever, age can be defined simply as the amount … Continue reading “Age is just a number”, yeah right!
For many people my age, university is their current focus but this doesn’t apply to every 20 year old. Others are spending their time being out of education ensuring that they have experience in their desired field with apprenticeships or they are making some money being in full time employment. But we are all united around one thing…THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF BEING SUCCESSFUL AND HAVING … Continue reading Drive, Determination & Destiny
We’re in a time now where EVERYBODY is screaming ‘squad’, ‘gang’, ‘my g’ and a whole bunch of other endearing terms that are exchanged by friends… and how can we forget the lyric that took over 2017 “If gang pull up, are you gonna back your bredrin?!” Now the general consensus is that people will answer yes without hesitation but if we change that question … Continue reading Together We Stand, Divided We Fall
Title Breakdown H.I.T.H is the name of Stormzy’s highly anticipated sophomore studio album, it’s an acronym for Heavy is the Head. The idea of the phrase can be found in Shakespeare’s play King Henry IV, where he said “uneasy lies the head that wears a crown”. The phrase speaks to the fact that being the king and top of the game isn’t short of problems, … Continue reading King Stormzy of House Merky-H.I.T.H Review
In this day and age it’s risky business to go against the grain, having opinions that others don’t agree with will leave you often time with no reward. It’s funny that most of the people that are loved on socials all do/say the same type of things… coincidence. The theme of life seems to be fall in line with what the majority love or fall … Continue reading Do I Have To?
All of us have grown up watching things like Fairly Odd Parents, Aladdin and Cinderella. Shows/films that involved people having magical people that are able to grant them wishes in order to make life better. I definitely wish this was my life because I can’t lie I have so many things in my life that I regret and would love to change. There’s a particular … Continue reading If I had One Wish… I’d Do Some Things Differently
For those that care, I know I’ve been gone a long time but if I’m honest I had no topics that I could write about (I wanted to write about a few things but you we live in a world where you must be politically correct). For you today I have a reflective topic “growing up & parenthood”. As much as I’m not a parent … Continue reading The Parent Trap
I want to start this blog by saying this is going to be the most special blog I’ve written so far. This piece is also an open letter to my sister Syria who sadly died on 30th October 2004, she was only 6 and I was only 7. Today is/would’ve been her 21st birthday! She isn’t able to celebrate it and feel like a princess … Continue reading Happy Birthday Sis!
After 3 years I’ve finally finished uni… This is rather bittersweet because as much as lectures are boring and revising is far from ‘lit’ I can’t deny that I enjoy learning and being at university was fun. It’s the type of experience that really builds you as a person. Now that my three years have come to an end life has to get real and … Continue reading Final Year Blues
Shout out to J Cole for the title of this blog, if you don’t know then check out Middle Child. I can’t lie this is the first time that I’m going to be speaking on the murder of Nipsey Hussle since it’s happened and it’s for a particular reason. To be real I wasn’t someone that listened to his music at all, I knew who … Continue reading The Real Ones Is Dying, The Fake Ones Are Lit
Drake once said once said ‘from the concrete who knew that a flower would grow’. Meaning that at times you get unlikely positives from bad environments but The Slumflower certainly doesn’t fit this description. It seems she came from a bad situation and turned into a stinging nettle. I’ve been aware of The Slumflower for a few years now, she has honestly done some amazing … Continue reading Good Girl Gone Bad
