THE MOGUL MINUTE : IN ORDER TO CATCH A DREAM YOU HAVE TO CHASE IT FIRST. MEEK MILL RELEASES YBA FT THE DREAM
Meek Mill third studio album "WINS & LOSSES" is on the way. Meek has let us hear a couple snippets during his live Instagram sessions and let's just say he's in his bag with bangas!!! He just released his new single "YBA" ( Young Black America ) ft The Dream produced by Street Symphony . The song discusses various issues that blacks deal with here in America including poverty, drugs, blacks being killed by whites and there's no conviction, black on black crime, felons not being able to get a good job so they turn to the streets for money, family issues and kids not having a wide perspective only thinking they could rap and play ball instead of going to school or being a lawyer . He talks about the system , males doing life sentences , pain a mama feels when her son is gone. This song is relative for so many reasons because a lot of young black males don't have the right influences so they get influenced by the wrong things just to make it , to feel love, or try to be accepted in circles they don't belong in . The video even includes the campaign speech from Donald Trump in which he directed towards blacks and said "You're living in poverty, your schools are no good , you have no jobs , 58% of your youth is unemployed-- what the hell do you have to lose ?" . As chilling as those words are the reality is that the system wasn't designed to treat us equally or to make things better for us here in America at all. It's a sad reality but our faith in God has to continue no matter what. Meek shares a lot of his stories as well as things he's been exposed to in his music . So check out the song below and watch the video and stay tuned for the official release date of "WINS & LOSSES"
The new movie Transformers : The Last Knight is directed by Michael Bay. The film stars Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Anthony Hopkins, Laura Haddock, Jerrod Carmichael, Isabela Moner , and Santiago Cabrera . The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).
There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours. So don't miss Transformers : The Last Knight

New Orleans singer and songwriter August Alsina recently sat down with the beautiful Jada Pinkett Smith for a one on one session. Over the years August and the Smith family have become really close.

Watching August speak to Mrs.Pinkett touched my heart in a special way. It really made me open my eyes . I'm literally in the hospital right now writing this article.
I admire his strength, love, and honesty. The fact that he shared so many personal details about his life shows absolute strength ,courage, and freedom .

Ms.Debra Lee the CEO and Chairman of BET looked beautiful presenting the Humanitarian Award. I think its very important that she addressed that this summer marks the 50th anniversary of the civil rights act of 1964. She said "The government action that outlawed discrimination based on race, color, sex, religion , or national origin. Signing that act took a pen but getting to that act took passion, patience, tears, blood, pride and lives. Segregation was a national scourge and groups of people many of whom were only in their twenties refused in different ways to allow America's future to look like its past. They made this countries shame a global story. One that brought attention to African American second class citizenship and courageous young people that refused that status.
