Lil B Is Cooking On Youtube And In The Studio

Lil B has established quite the reputation for himself on social media, which has been a mixture of extreme positivity and sometimes, random beef. Arguably, there’s no one rapper who has achieved more interest for social media first, music second than he has. The coolest thing about Lil B is that despite the “curses” he’s put on people, the conspiracies about Twitter stunts, and the other sensationalism surrounding his name, the music is actually pretty good.

How Combining Hip-Hop With Therapy Might Help The Next Generation Of Rappers

Lauryn Hill was a trendsetter in many ways, some quite unexpected. When she wrote “Superstar” back in 1998, her words tapped into one area of hidden potential for hip-hop music that’s only just now being realized: “Come on baby, light my fire Everything you drop is so tired Music is supposed to inspire So how come we ain’t getting no higher?” She, like many of today’s hip-hop heads, turned to the genre to relieve stress and to feel like she wasn’t alone...

Seeing Lake Mead With Taye Diggs Will Remind You To 'Find Your Park'

Imagine being an megawatt actor and your agent calls to tell you you’re going to be on a speedboat tour of freezing cold Lake Mead in mid-autumn. Afterward, you’ll explore the other side of the Hoover Dam on a raft down the Colorado River. And you’ll do it all with a bunch of journalists. It’s probably not the kind of call you’d be used to (or relish), but Taye Diggs answered it anyway. The actor/writer/singer felt that it was important to support the National Park Foundation in its push preser

A New Website Hopes To Make 'Adulting' A Lot Easier For All Of Us

Between Google and my mama, there are still a lot of things I, as a full-grown adult, have not learned to do, or did not know I needed to know how to do. Sometimes adultier adults act like when we turn 18 we are handed a guidebook to teach us how to fill in a tax form, what a tax form even is, how to deal with the government, what to do if we get into trouble with the law, etc. That’s why I breathed a millennial sigh of relief when I learned about AllShitAdult.com.

Burger King released an anti-bullying ad Tuesday that will make you think twice before you let bullying slide. The short National Bullying Prevention Month PSA “Bullying Jr.” commercial pits a high school junior against a Whopper Jr. to see how many patrons would report their sandwich being “bullied,” or a little bit roughed up by one of the restaurant workers, yet ignore the plight of a real human who is experiencing similar treatment.
