"Kids" Rap Explicit Rick Ross and 2 Chainz Lyrics

Dec 18, 2013 -- 1:55pm

Some people are speaking out about how explicit the lyrics of some of the year's biggest hits are.

A video entitled "Kids" that features children rapping the offensive lyrics of some of the year's biggest hits has become viral, and was even seen on CNN.

The visuals were created by Jimmy Smith II and Jarrel Smith of Los Angeles-based agency Amusement Park, and they said this on why they created the video.

"We just wanted to hold up a mirror to the types of messages we pump into our heads all day," the Smiths said during an interview with fastcocreate.com. "We hope this film pushes some of our favorite, super-talented artists to push themselves toward more honest and balanced art. Not cleaner or censored, but honest. If rappers rapped about Hot Wheels and ice cream on every song it wouldn't be honest, either. But if you have 12 songs about money, where are the songs about the things money does not fix? Nobody is perfect, but as creatives we can always be honest. Honesty--it's what makes truly great art, great.”

Maino And Trinidad James: Are They really Beefin?

Nov 20, 2013 -- 1:34pm

Trinidad James probably never thought that his comments would set the hip hop world a blaze but they did! Just last week, the Atlanta rapper caused an uproar when he said that "Atlanta runs New York musically" at a New York concert.

 

Once the video footage of his concert rant went viral, New York rappers including a very vocal Maino spoke out on how Trinidad's comment were taken as disrespect to the city of New York. After the twitter rants and the release of an song called "F*ck These Industry Niggas," Maino called Trinidad up to address the issue. Check out their phone conversation below.

Soul Food - Get Rid Of The Family Drama

Nov 20, 2013 -- 12:32pm

With Thanksgiving a little over a week away we already know that we need to prepare ourselves to deal with the joys, and the stress that comes with spending times with our families. Don’t get me wrong I love my family and I’m sure you love yours, but when you get the whole family all together there are bound to be some issues. This is why all week long I plan to give you some tips on how to rid yourself of certain behaviors now, so that next week can go as smooth as possible.

Yesterday we learned to stop putting people on pedestals, and today lets try an put an end to all our family drama!

Are there people in your family that you just can stand? Do you have a sister that brags too much or a brother that’s always in trouble?  Are you angry with your father, and even angrier with your spouse? If so rid yourself off all those ill feelings before the holidays get here!

Reach out and try to make amends with family members and fiends that you are beefing with. Even if you don’t fix whatever problems are going on by next week, you will feel better knowing that you’re not fostering any resentment or anger toward your own flesh and blood, and you’ll have a more enjoyable holiday.

If there are family members out there that you haven’t talked to in a while, reach out and send them a Facebook message, write them a later, and call them up and catch up. The holiday season is not a time to live in regrets and what ifs. Know where you stand with people.

Stop the drama this holiday season. If you’re feuding with your family, arguing with your friends or beefing with anyone for that matter step up, take responsibility and do your part to rectify the situation. The holidays are a time to cherish and make amazing memories with our families and friends, not a time to hold on to hate and push people away. 

Soul Food - Stop Putting People On Pedestals

Nov 18, 2013 -- 1:06pm

With Thanksgiving a little over a week away we already know that we need to prepare ourselves to deal with the joys, and the stress that comes with spending times with our families. Don’t get me wrong I love my family and I’m sure you love yours, but when you get the whole family all together there are bound to be some issues. This is why all week long I plan to give you some tips on how to rid yourself of certain behaviors now, so that next week can go as smooth as possible.

 

First off, stop putting people on pedestals!

With everything be so corporately charged these days, we try to organize and put everything in its place including people. We treat our parents with respect because they are our parents; that’s the title they have. We treat our bosses we respect because they are bosses, and we want to stay employed. What if we stripped everybody of their title; would you still treat them the same?

In a recent conversation a lady told me we should not get so hung up on who’s who. We are all people and we should “treat people like people not by titles because God treats us as such.” This got me to thinking.

We place people in categories based on appearance, wealth, status, and popularity. We then put titles on these groups, and how you are treated usually depends on how high you are ranked in these categories.  For instance, managers, corporate CEOs, politicians, and even celebrities are looked as being more beautiful, wealthier, and powerful than average Americans, so they get treated with a certain level of respect. So much so, that unnatural curiosity moves us to go out of our way to please and provide them with special treatment.

Instead of treating people like we want to be treated, our treatment of people is based on how much money and power they posses; we live in a culture that glorifies people for what they have instead of who they are inside. Keep in mind that celebrities, politicians, and even your boss, are just people, so stop treating people differently because of status and what they can do for you.

Learn to be pleasant and genuine with everybody from janitors to Jay-Z. Most people can see through fakeness and playing a part can be exhausting. Remove the tension from your life and be yourself. When people see that you’re a genuine person, doors will begin to open because people will want to help you just because of the person you are inside. Try it! I guarantee it’ll work!
