LEGITIMATIZING DIDDY: NEVER UNDERESTIMATE WHAT A COLLEGE DROPOUT CAN TEACH A GRADUATING CLASS

Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs, now Dr. Combs, delivered the commencement speech at Howard University’s 2014 Graduation.  Prior to the graduation ceremony, many were opposed to Diddy being the selection.  The argument was that he was not a positive example for encouraging the graduates to embrace dreams and the “real world”.  Well,

It’s Okay To Be Amazing

I went home for spring break to say good-bye to a dear family member. A beautiful soul and cousin who was taken by breast cancer less than a month ago. I wish you could have met her. I wish she’d written a book on how to live your dreams. Start

An Extreme Case Of Inspiration

Sometimes it takes a good talk with dad watching the sun set in Bimini. It takes the wind crashing into my shirt while my arms are wide open like I’m waiting for God to carry me home. And I’m standing there with my dad just talking about entrepreneurship. I’m asking

First, Love Yourself – The story behind the ‘Evolution Of Love’

John Harris III newly released book Evolution Of Love: A See You. Be You. Do More Story, has been a motivating work of art, to say the least.  He has traveled the East Coast sharing poetry and educating the youth on self-actualization.  I had the pleasure of talking with Mr. Harris

“My Ni***. My ..?” – X the N-word or nah?

YG’s song frankly titled “My N####” is, what I like to call, a banger. I like it. I vibe to it and I am known to call my good buddies “n####” every now and then. However, there’s been much debate and discussion on eliminating the word. In fact, the NFL is

Is It Just Me or Has Fashion Become Totally Unisex
