NO R.I.P: No reckless Internet posting






I created this blog because I like being on the Internet and being creative in giving my thoughts and points of view on the things that I am interested in. As a blogger I try my best to post things that is tasteful and not harmful to the world. Yes we have freedom of speech to say and post the things we want in this country, however just because we have those rights does not mean everything is to be said or read

The saying sticks and stones may break my bones and words will never hurt me.  Well words do hurt because they hold power, the tongue is mightier than the sword or these days the fingers punching keys are lethal and destructive.

The reason for this post is that I was watching Love and Hip-Hop Atlanta (hey guilty pleasure) on this current episode manager Debra Antney and mother of rap artist Waka Flaka Flame was talking about the death of her youngest son "Caodes "KayO" Scott"  who committed suicide at the end of 2013. After her son death Debra learned that her son was going back and forth with people online defending his mother, brother and other family members. 

The pressure of how cruel this world can be got to Kayo and unfortunately he decided to take his own life. He was only twenty two years old, Kayo is one of many who committed suicide due to online bullying. Debra created a foundation in her son honor called No R.I.P: No Reckless Internet Posting and to learn more about this movement please go to

"Caodes "KayO" Scott"  1991-2013 may peace be with you young brother

I agree. Words can be so hurtful and cruel, and people online can be the worst online because of that false sense of anonymity.

June 11th 1996 Mona Lisa released her debut 11-20-79

As I continue with my series of great albums of 1996, this album that I am featuring on this post is probably in my top 10 of  my top 100 favorite albums. I promise I will treat you all to that list one day soon, I have been mentally creating that list forever, as old albums stay the same, new albums come out so stay tuned. Anyway this album featured on today's post is an album that I still play on a regular basis to this day.

Movie soundtracks was big in the 90s, sometimes even bigger than regular albums, the Wayans brothers had this hilarious move called "Don't be a menace while drinking your juice in south central" a spoof on all the hood classic films in the 90s.  The soundtrack was even better, R&B singer Joe had one of the biggest hits that helped him become name in R&B. He had a song called "All The Things…

What's Going On?

I may talk about music and culture, It is my way to ease the pain with all the things I see going on in this world. But it is too much to ignore, last weekend there was bomb explosion in Mogadishu, Somalia. As of right now it has been reported that 300 lives has been lost due the terrorist attack.

I do my best to keep up with what is going on, whether it's in pop culture, local or national news. And with this recent terrorist attack. The one thing I don't see flooding up and down my time lines on my social media feed. Is  #PrayForSomalia, that is something that is very scarce across the feeds. But I bet your bottom dollar I can see the endless memes of bitches not being shit and its numerous likes.

That goes without fail, I posted a few links about this horrific incident and all I have heard is crickets. If I posted a joke and made fun of reality star. It would have been likes and comments galore. I am not tell…

1997 Part II

I was sixteen years old in 1997, music was life back then for me, and in that year I needed it more then ever, My freshmen year of high school was 1996 - 1997 and during that school year I was at a school I did not want to be at. In the city of Buffalo at that time, during 8th grade year students had to pick the top choices of the high school they wanted to go to. It was all based on grades during 7th grade year and first grade quarter of 8th grade.

Math was my weakest subject, and the schools that I chose at the time a student had to excel well in the area of math. And me not being on my A game it caused me to loose out on all of my choices of the schools I wanted to attend. So in fall of 1996 I was at my district school. While all my Jr. high friends was at the school of their choices living the high life.

I had to make a daily trip to south Buffalo, a place I did not want to be, what kept me calm to and from schoo…
