Homecoming ft. Justin Tuitt

May 1, 2019

This week i speak with former performer, filmmaker, and CAU Alum Justin Tuitt. Because Mrs. Carter dropped an inspired BTS documentary about her and ensemble’s journey to Coachella performance, I thought I have yet to have an HBCU centered episode so we talk misconceptions of Black Colleges, power rankings of TV/Film depictions of “HBCU experience” and just stan on how they should change them to Black Ivy League Institutions, enjoy

Damn Skinfolks

April 15, 2019

This week I'm back with a quick evergreen episode. I wanted to set the record straight on how to approach people who share your race but don't share the ideal of the advancement of your specific ethnic group. Biggest example in the news lately was Candace Owens and the rhetoric she proclaimed at the Congressional hearing centered around the rise of Hate Crime in the past few years, check out the links below for others that were featured and provided a real historically factual argument on how hate crimes is apart of the fiber of America.

Separate ?

Separate ?

March 25, 2019

This week I give my take on the highly debated philosophical question of " Should we Separate the art from the artist ? " My girl inspired this topic due to the interesting series of events I believed my confliction let me to do more research and I stumbled on an article by Vox.com written by Constance Grady. I believe that it ultimately directed me to the conclusion that this isn't one that is black or white but forever grey... Enjoy and share and review

This week I have a listener turned guest, Lawrence “Juice” Pierce . A Delaware native, dancer, aspiring actor, upcoming content collaborator/creator, and of course a CAU alum. We had the necessary controversial conversation about Black men and obvious divide between Black men who are gay and straight. We speak on the gap of understanding on both ends of the spectrum, unpacking the hate and ignorance, and most importantly discussing solutions on how we can better keep our brothers, all of our brothers

When I Get Right ft. Vei

When I Get Right ft. Vei

March 4, 2019

This week I featured a favorite of Simply King, the poetess Vei. We unpacked another worthy topic of recognizing your potential, challenging your beliefs to reach your new levels of self-mastery and understanding that your destiny is in your control. We also had to speak on sonic masterpiece that is "When I Get Home" by Solange which served as the theme for this episode. The takeaway is that we are all gifted and special but we must see that we are our biggest barrier to growth...

What’s Reality ??

What’s Reality ??

February 18, 2019

This week I ask a simple question, How does media distort reality ? Our news comes with more than just facts. With the emergence of phrases like fake news, alternative facts, political correctness, etc. it makes it so hard to consume the facts on current events. The cloudiness of news and other forms of media has the nation divided by platforms. Let me know who you trust for information now, see links mentioned below.
