great article. Starlito is one of few rapper that i feel like its easy to know the real him which is why i love his music. I feel like I'm laughing joking and crying with a distant friend when i play his music. Just started listen to him after Stepbrothers was released but since I've listened to about 8 of his albums/mixtapes
Not to be a nitpicker, but slipping the word "alleged" in before the suspects names would be more in keeping with our constitutional tradition.
You fucking suck. If you're going to analyze the film, you should spend more time actually dissecting what happens and discussing the meaning behind it. There's no point in just recounting the entire thing. For the people who have already watched the film, it's unnecessary, and for the people who haven't, it's a major spoiler. This is an interesting film. You could have taken the time to discuss the meaning behind the animals present throughout the film (i.e. the scorpion, the snake, the dog...). You could have talked about the relevance of the fact that Ellison was a True Crime writer. God, you're a moron. You don't deserve the position you have to speak on the matter. Go to hell.
J.Chris is amazing with his vocals. I was amazed with how this song moved me. So addictive it truly is. Great job Harvest Mill. I personally know the lead singer and his wife. One of the most heart felt couples I've met to this day. Congrats may we continue to hear more from harvest mill.

Sounds like an interesting perspective.
It also sounds like he should consider creating a new hip hop album that speaks the message he's trying to deliver.
I tend to agree with him that materialism is a big issue and our youth do tend to look up to athletes and entertainers more than successful businessmen. I was fortunate to have successful professionals in my family that served as role models for how you can achieve success through education and hard work.
For those that don't have those role models, the struggle is getting them to understand the value of education. There are other ways to be successful beside becoming a star athlete or entertainer, but unfortunately, for many, I think those people are the only success they see.
Why do you have to chestize a BLACK MAN on his grind! He got his hands in alot of pots that you may not know about. What are you doing with your free time since you have time to judge people. You can say he sold out and what-not but he did what he had to do to get his foot in the door and get his opportunity. Now he has his own royalties, catalogs and making money with numerous global companies. You can easily shoot blame but he his a choice. Just like he chooses to uplift the next generation of rappers, politicans, business owners, etc,etc. He can easily be like Lil Wayne's, Future's,etc,etc but he chooses like Killer Mike, Big K.R.I.T,
J-COLE'S,Kendrick Lamar's to use their platform to springboard the disappearing of the Black Community's struggle. "THINK ABOUT IT"
@B_Broadhead I didn't say Meridian had a racist past. I asked, "How was it growing up as an African-American in a STATE with such a racist past?"
@ Louis Goggans,
Where did you do research your about Meridian's racist past? Hollywood? Or maybe some of those racist hating liberals in Mass, NYC or Jersey? LOL.
Do you understand any better NOW that it was explained?
Hey, if you don't like what I post, don't visit my blog. It's that simple. By the way, those aren't gang signs. Do your research before you address me.
this movie is the most terrifying flick i have EVER SEEN other than THE EXORORCIST! But i was 13 yrs old when saw the Exorcist ,Iam 53 yrs old now! I have watched "SINISTER " at least 65 tines in 1 month and for some reason I cant seem to get enough of this TERRIFYING movie !My son has even purchased it for me because I have rented it on Direct TV 3 separate times! Oh well what can I say ,I am HOOKED!
"Take your lick." I like that. Words to live by.
I attended the lecture, and Mr. Goggans appears to have misheard the slavery comparison. David Banner compared the house slave to people working for the record producer, the yard slave to the rapper, and the field slave to the people listening to hip-hop.
He got rich enough selling gutter hip hop then decided to be conscious. He's a salesman trying to stay rekevant. If he cared he'd have stopped rapping degrading rap a Lon time ago.
It appears that Mr. Banner has figured it out. The Mayor of Memphis should give him the key to the city to counteract the ridiculousness of Triple Six Mafia getting it years ago!
Don't make him angry...you won't like him when he gets angry.
I dunno. Black History Month reminds me of Christians and Easter, a once a year pretending like it matters but definitely back shelf the rest of the time. And nothing about the past 40 years or 2000 respectively.
It's not because they were black but because I wanted to honor their contributions to a art form I love (blues music) that I bought two black men headstones this month. www.killerblues.net
Don't worry about me and Arlington. Last time I drove thru there, a mile or two below the speed limit, I got a ticket. Fortunately, the city was just being investigated for illegal speed traps and it was dismissed. Hell, they looked schocked that I even showed up to contest it.
I have nothing what-so-ever to do with Arlington.
Btw, unless cops tell on other cops, we will have this problem. I understand that is a hard thing to do, but, I can hope.
