Childish Gambino – This is America Music Video is not revolutionary art.

I can’t express how tired I am of seeing black death on my screens. I can’t seem to escape seeing a video of someone killing a Black Person, it’s even shown on the news on replay every hour. I am a Childish Gambino fan and I have to say this music video was disappointing to watch. I listened to the song before watching the video and I liked the song before the video but now I can’t stand to hear it. If you’re on the internet you will end up watching it because everyone is sharing the video, screenshots, memes and think pieces breaking down every meaning of the video. I wonder if it still okay to mention the triggers this video may contain for some people even though it has well over 72 Million views which means there’s a chance you saw the video already and was introduced to the chaotic scenes of death, massacre, suicide and chaos all while black people dance in the foreground.

Soulcial Sunday

It’s been a little while since we’ve written a Soulcial Sunday post and I have to say that this year has been pretty busy. 2018 started out on a good note and we want to keep up the momentum continuing to make this year better than last. We’re working hard on new content that we are trying to get out and with Convention Season about to come in full swing we’ll be busier than ever between working on content and going to these events.

Black Panther: The Album

We’ve been blessed again with another gift and that is The Black Panther Album. The album had high anticipation since it was announced that Kendrick Lamar was producing it with Anthony Tiffith. I have to say this album really did meet expectations after listening to it a few times. With the growing momentum around the Black Panther movie, I’m pretty sure there is going to be negative reactions towards this album because of the artists on the album but overall it turned out better than I expected it to. The album has great replay value and introduced me to a few new artists I’ve never heard before. Continue reading

Artistic Expression with Takeia Marie

takeia_marie 
My first encounter with Takeia Marie happened randomly while attending New York Comic Con back 2012.  A rap cipher gone wrong in the middle of the artist alley show floor. She nice with the pen in more ways than one. She can spit.  And even though I embarrassed myself, it made that experience that much more memorable.  How many people can honestly say that they met in this type of manner at Comic Book convention. Not many! But we’ve been chopping it up ever sense.
So when I reached out for an interview.  This is what she had to say.
