Cardi B Makes Money Moves, Files Trademark Application for “Okurrr” Because She Wants ALL the Bags

While the appeal of Cardi B lies in her simple, relatable nature, don’t mistake her for a fool. She’s a woman who’s serious about her business in more ways than just topping the charts or scoring Fashion Nova deals.According to the Los Angeles Times, Cardi B has filed a trademark request for the phrase “Okurrr,” for use on “paper goods, namely paper cups and posters.”Honestly, I’m not sure if she’ll get this or not, but if she does, good for her. Even though Tyler Perry’s Madea character probabl...

We need to start treating producers in hip-hop fairly

It’s become all too common to hear of producers getting screwed over or unappreciated for their work. This has to end. Producers are a major artery in the blood flow of the music industry and that isn’t seen anywhere more than in hip-hop. Producers are often the key to hip-hop artists’ success, setting the stage for rappers to jump up and knock them down. Despite the key role they play in hip-hop music they are so often undervalued and it’s terrible. So today is another day, and another...

Which genre of music makes the best cheese? This study found out

Speaking to plants helps their flowers bloom, playing classical music to baby bumps helps them grow up to be intelligent, and apparently now playing music to cheese makes it taste nicer.
