It's almost that time of the year and I find myself comfortable even amid the Muni Long's "Hrs & Hrs" phenomenon. Although, people are playing it like it's the air we breathe in, no one can deny the greatness of it. "Hrs & Hrs" is quite the catchy romance song of the moment right now, and as a result it has become the soundtrack for every couple video on social media. I would argue that is the anthem for love or being in love as we know it today. If you still don't what time I'm talking about by now, I'm referring to Valentine's Day, also known as Single Anonymous Day, the hallmark day of love, or plainly put just February 14th. The spotlight isn't just on the couples, but it's on the single folks too. This day weeds out the lovebirds from the rest of the world unlike any other day.
Should Growing Up Hip Hop Be Canceled?
The Growing Up Hip Hop franchise has been on air since January 2016 and I can't help but ask myself is it running out of time? I was first became interested in the show when it featured the original cast: Romeo Miller, Master P, Dame Dash, Boogie Dash, Pepa, Egypt, Kristinia DeBarge and T.J Mizell (Jam Master Jay's son). The premise of the show was about the lives of kids with legendary Hip-Hop parents as they conquer the world under their own spotlight on their terms. Since then, there have been numerous seasons and spinoffs from Atlanta to New York. Thus, leading to an expansion of the cast and more explosive drama all originating from the popularity of the original show in Los Angeles.
What We Can Learn From “The Meaning of Mariah Carey”
"The Meaning of Mariah Carey" became a memoir of sheer curiosity for me when the release was teased in June 2020. The book was slated to release in September of that year, and I was dying trying to figure out how I was going to get my hands on it. I have been an avid bookworm since I was a kid in elementary. I also happened to become a fan of Mariah Carey around the same time.
Hard Truths: The 9 to 5 American Hustle
The daily grind for most people today is working eight-to-twelve-hour shifts. Subsistence living or more commonly known living referred to as "paycheck to paycheck." The wait until pay day can feel like forever and even like all that labor wasn't worth it. The pay and the cost of living these days just isn't adding up. No matter how much money we make the costs of everything just continues to increase. Minimum wage has not yet caught up to the price of gas or rent.
