Everything About The Rock’s First Official Rap Verse Is Funny

I can still remember hearing that Wyclef Jean was going to have the Rock on his single. This was 21 years ago, when Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was on his fourth or fifth reign as WWF World Champion. The Rock wasn’t a movie star yet — he’d make his debut as a terrible CGI effect in The Mummy Returns a year later — but he already seemed like he might be the coolest person on earth. The Rock had been a shit-talking, egocentric heel who’d become a crowd favorite simply because he was so good at egoce...

9 Reasons You Should Check Out Jidenna’s Debut Album, The Chief

In 2015, the world was introduced to Jidenna through the hit single, “Classic Man,” a song directly catered towards Black folks that read and believe that ascots aren’t only a job, but an adventure. I loved that song as most people did. Jidenna as an artist, though, I was ambivalent about. Sure it was a dope song, but how many artists come with dope songs and disappear into the ether only to show up decades later on VH1 “One Hit Wonder” shows because they had nothing else to really offer. I coul...

Confession: I Went On 2.5 Dates With A Hotep And Lived To Tell The Tale

(Screenshot from Radha Blank’s “Hoteps Hoteppin“) Before Facebook memes about women making a plate for their man and Dr. Umar Johnson took the interwebs by storm, I was quite uninitiated to the world of the Hotep. I knew guys like Shazza Zulu from A Different World existed but I never thought I was the kind of dame to have one stumble into my life. And I certainly never thought I’d come this close to falling head over heels for one. Here’s my story. We met on a commuter train during rush hour. W...

25 Songs That Make You Miss The 2000s

It might be hard to believe that 2000s nostalgia is a thing. As in, people are yearning for some brightly colored, faux-leather flared pants. People miss shopping at Hot Topic. And most of all, people miss the music.That last one is pretty valid, because the music created during the 2000s is actually very good. Maybe not Beatles good. But definitely good enough that if you were to listen to the songs again now, you wouldn't be able to stop yourself from singing along.You might even start remini...

Aliya S. King’s True Hip-Hop Stories: That Time I Lied My Way Into A Job With The Source

Marcus Reeves, who had graduated a few years before me at Rutgers University, was now the News Editor. I can’t even begin to explain what a big deal this was. There was a person who had infiltrated The Source who actually knew my name! Someone I could actually call and say hello to! As much as I’d wanted to, I hadn’t majored in journalism in ...
