Big Ups! Lauryn Hill’s Album ‘The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill’ Is Entered Into the Library of Congress





The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill is arguably one of the best albums I've ever heard. There are so many people who will agree with me on this. When it came to the release of the album from lyricist, singer, actress Lauryn Hill the music world was thirsty for someone who was super talented and who had a message. Since it's release, Lauryn (and the rest of the people who contributed) have been praised for their work on the album.

Rihanna Dropped New Single #BBHMM & It's Trapanna in Full Effect



Trapanna is back with another song that the clubs and stunters will love.. only Rih's not actually stuntin'. It's been proven especially over the last few years that the pretty Bajan is about her business and her money. It gives me the same ballsy approach she had with her hit song, Hard. Rih is basically braggin about how much money she spends, how much you won't play with her money, and ultimately how much money she makes.

J. Cole Plays A House Slave in New Video- G.O.M.D.



J. Cole has come through with a pretty incredible visual for his single, G.O.M.D. The new video takes place on a plantation where Cole is in character as a house slave. It's a pressing storyline because it's so obviously close to the history we as blacks have in this country. In the video, J. Cole is not loved by the other slaves on the plantation mainly because they see him as better than them.

Jill Scott is what I like to call Motha Bae. There has always been something so alluring and beautiful about the Poet/Singer/Actress. Everybody loves Jill.

KayKi Speaks With India Shawn in Live Twitterview



India Shawn is becoming a name music lovers around the world are passing around. It's not just the fact that her voice is angelic and smokey some how at the same time, but it's also this unrepressed energy and light that exudes from the singer. I've been a fan for years, sort of in the background just watching her career blossom petal by petal into something beautiful. For some India is new news even though she's written for some of your favorite artists (Bassline by Chris Brown is one of my faves). I wanted to give her longtime fans and new found fans the opportunity to get to know her a bit.

Meet 16 yr. Old Chase Reed -Black Teen Whose Sneaker Shop Is Breaking the Mold



There is so much a black teen can get into these days. The idea of immediate gratification and an imbalanced scale of opportunity often leads them to paths of destruction. Even those on the right path find themselves having better things to do than opening their own business. This is why the story of Chase Reed and Sneaker Pawn USA inspired me so much.
