As soon as he became the first artist to be signed to J. Cole’s label Dreamville, Bas has had big shoes to fill. Born in Paris, France, Bas moved to Queens, New York, at the age of eight. Before Bas was particularly interested in music, older brother, now known as DJ Moma, did everything he could to introduce Bas to various musical styles, including the electronic influences of the European music scene, which, at the time, was quite different from the popular American music of the era.


Sagging pants and fouled mouth children…”N” this, “N” that…
Slow walks approaching the school building
Prep to take the belts off…
“Hurry…hurry” a friend yells out to hide their cell phones
Metal detectors…
“Empty your pockets”
beep…beep…
“Go!”
No ‘Good Mornings’
No smiles—


To be 100% honest with ya’ll, I almost fainted when I walked into the room where songtress, Leela James had been relaxing on the couch. I greeted everyone and introduced myself and like the cool and beautiful person Ms. James was she said, “Hey sweetie, you got to excuse me for laying down we been traveling all day, but you can lay down and relax with me.” Totally blown away by her “down-to-earth” approach, she was every thing I imagined her to be in person.

I want to start by saying that if you are a young attractive vibrant woman who happens to be a resident of another country, living in the United States, but wish to become a citizen of our great nation, I’ll gladly marry you for a green card, money or insurance. All I ask is that you be able to cook, clean and keep the sex coming on a regular...

When I was doing article’s called “A.D’s Soapbox” I covered this topic already but I think giving this another look, with more insight should help expand on the opinion I was trying to make before.

I am still NOT married and I'm still very much ANTI-Marriage. I don’t believe anyone should get married, gay or straight. If you can find someone who wants to be with you “forever” then have at it. Who am I to stop you from love? I may like pizza but I couldn’t imagine having to eat it forever. If marriage is such a sacred institution, why does divorce exist?

"Isn't there anyone out there who can tell me what Christmas is all about?" That's a question good ol' Charlie Brown asks in the TV classic, A Charlie Brown Christmas. Which of us hasn't asked that question before? Our Christmas holidays get cluttered with more and more stuff as life goes on. Every year gets more hectic and we have more and do more. At the same time, we wonder if there shouldn't be more to Christmas. We are often left wondering with Charlie Brown, "Isn't there anyone out there who can tell me what Christmas is all about?" I recently meet with married couple, Kevin & Karen Byrd who took a simplistic stance to answering Charlie Brown's question.

Some people get into rough patches in their relationships and either don't know what the real problem is or how to solve it and save the relationship. In order to actually know if and how you can fix problems in your love life, you have to know when it is time to fully admit that you're at fault.

 Leaving an Unhealthy Relationship.

You remember lying awake at 2 o’clock in the morning, staring out into the darkness while you reflected on your life up to that point. As you lay there restless, you replayed the poor choices you made to stay in your relationship. With each difficult memory, you struggled to find the peace of mind to go back to sleep. You were tormented at the inability to move on from a bad situation even though you know it was slowly killing your spirit.
