Keepin My Brother Ft. Juice

March 18, 2019

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

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 ??

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.
