Forbes 30 Under 30 is here

Forbes 30 Under 30 in the music category was released and we have some good ones and interesting ones on the list! Surprises for me include Cardi B, who is definitely Rookie of the Year if we had one, Khalid and SZA. Khalid's album American Teen went platinum! And we know the year SZA is having as well, reminds me of the run Bryson Tiller had a year or so ago. Check out more of the list right here: Read more...

Colin Kaepernick named GQ Citizen of the Year

Today GQ announced that they have chosen former San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick for its Citizen of the Year honor. I personally think it's awesome that Kaepernick received this honor because of what he has gone thru since taking his stance on racial and political issues. Sure, we all are not gonna agree in the tactics he might have used to get his point across, but how many players would go thru what Kaepernick has gone thru for a cause they felt extremely concerned about? That's why I admire Kaep because I'm not sure if I have to gravitas to do it but he did. You used to hear about stories of what Jackie Robinson, Jim Brown and other black athletes back in the day went thru. I never thought I would see an example of this in 2017! But I hope he gets back in the NFL and more importantly, I hope he keeps fighting for change! Check out more on this story here: Read more...
