Pretty Girls have issues too…

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. And although today is May 31, I specifically wanted to use the very last day to open up and talk about my own personal about with mental health, more specifically anxiety and depression. I was diagnosed with PTSD and severe anxiety last November. And as many people would guess it was partially military related.

Artist Spotlight feat. Co’Ke OneHunded

One of St. Pete’s hidden talents is Co’Ke OneHunded. This artist may not look like the philosopher but that is exactly what he is.

Under no 🙅🏾 circumstances should a grown man wear women’s attire. Leggings, skirts, blouses, dresses, none of the above 🚫. That applies to the norm and the famous. But as we all know, the famous influences a great portion of hip hop culture. Fashion trends among rappers stayed pretty consistent through the 90’s and 00’s but dammit man have these n*ggas taken “originality” too damn … Continue reading The Emasculation of Hip Hop Fashion
