S1, Ep. 103 – “Thy Will Be Done” Let me first finish dabbing my brow because Ralph Angel and his thug tendencies did a little something to me and my hormones. I can’t lie. I like a man who will give somebody the business if necessary. I’ll explain below. Let’s run this back. Shout out… Read More What You Not Gon’ Do: Queen Sugar Keeps Getting Sweeter
S1, Ep. 102 – “Evergreen” This episode is full of: You can’t help who you love. I don’t like you but I love you.

They performed “Freedom.” All I could picture is some young girl in the audience being pissed because a few drops splashed in her direction, onto her… Read More BET Awards: Purple Reigns
So… What I won’t do is give a play-by-play, because I hate when people do that and totally spoil a movie for me. What I will do, though, is share a few of the highlights of this amazingly executed biopic. First of all, if you’re an 80’s baby like me, you remember Miki Howard mostly… Read More Miki Howard’s Story MOVES
Hosts: Ciara and Ludacris Let’s run this back. I read on social media that a decent amount of people didn’t like the performances or maybe the majority of the performers, but I didn’t mind MOST of them. It could be because I’m familiar with most of the artists or at least their songs because I… Read More 2016 Billboard Music Awards: The Good, The Meh, & The WTF
