    Reason First: Can Social Media Save OJ Simpson's Image?

    Reason First: Can Social Media Save OJ Simpson's Image?

    OJ Simpson is looking like he never had a double homicide charge against him or served nearly a decade for robbery. All of this, of course, is allegedly orchestrated propaganda to boost the former NFL star and actor’s profile. He donned casual clothes by a poolside, showing off his ring, watch, and sunglasses in one Instagram video. In it, he addressed all of the dads out there on Father’s Day. In a Twitter post, Simpson provided much more substance. He outlined the rumor that he is Khloe Kardashian’s father and that Kris Jenner and he engaged in trysts.

    Reason First: Rapper Key Glock Avoided the Penal System... Now What?

    Reason First: Rapper Key Glock Avoided the Penal System... Now What?

    The trappings of the rap game include mostly carnal urges, firearms, and the persistent chase of banknotes. Such topics have fueled the genre for decades. Rapper Key Glock is no different in his expression of such subject matter. And his once legal woes turned into a win as his charges for gun and marijuana possession were eliminated. With the simple message “charge dropped” on his Twitter, Key Glock announced to the world that he has been cleared legally. A month after being arrested on these charges, Key Glock seems poised to advance in his rap career, which should see a boost in interest due to his brush with the law. In just a little over a month, Glock secured his placement in the pantheon of rappers whose charges were dropped like the Dow Jones Industrial Average in a bear market. Glock brings to the game more of the same in many respects, but his ability to combat the obvious role of law enforcement seeking to lock up as many rappers as possible appears to be at the forefront of his message. It’s raw, unmistakable and dedicated to street themes. So, Glock’s subject matter coincides with his lifestyle. What else is new?

    Reason First: Is Shotti Way out of Line or on the Right Path When It Comes to His Opinion of Tekashi69?

    Reason First: Is Shotti Way out of Line or on the Right Path When It Comes to His Opinion of Tekashi69?

    Though the YouTube video of the conversation between Shotti and DJ Pvnch is no longer available, the fallout from the talks has rung through the corners of the Internet like a church bell. Former manager for Tekashi69, Shotti, has called the young MC an “ungrateful rat bastard.” He then goes onto say that he’s fine without his protégé. In the vein of Jay-Z’s classic “Dead Presidents II,” Shotti says in a sense that hustling just ain’t Tekashi69 and that he forgives him.

    Why I Think R. Kelly Is Guilty

    Why I Think R. Kelly Is Guilty

    The things that make me believe that R. Kelly is guilty is his over the top emotional reaction with his interview with Gayle. Before that interview, I was sort of on the fence about whether he did all the things he is accused of. Once I saw his over the top reaction and his constant invasion of questions come that put no doubt in my mind about his guilt. I always believe that R. Kelly had an unhealthy attraction to underage girls. There is no getting around the underage marriage to Aaliyah I believe she was only 14 or 15 when she married R. Kelly.

    R. Kelly and His Legal Peril: So Not Funny

    R. Kelly and His Legal Peril: So Not Funny

    While I acknowledge that "I Believe I Can Fly" is a song that can be empowering for many people, I've never been a big R. Kelly fan. His music has never really been that appealing to me, and once he started facing some serious legal trouble—dating back to 1996—I simply get a bad vibe from him.

    Is Society Punishing R. Kelly?

    Is Society Punishing R. Kelly?

    For decades, the business of music and media as a whole have been fueled by the secular and the profane or the grand and the coarse or God and sex, drugs, and nowadays, hiphop. Seemingly, it would be because most acts grew up in homes espousing faithful values in America. The late, great Prince Rogers Nelson built up an entire career based on the ideals of trying to coalesce the notions of some alleged floating consciousness outside the bounds of reality with the urges of the flesh. Corporeal thoughts and actions meant greater dollar signs to the companies that produce everything from music to pornography and everything in between. The recognition that some mystical force would one day save the makers and consumers of such fair through the blood of the son continues to resonate with audiences. R. Kelly is just a pawn, a freak that has only brought upon himself the indignation of a nation.

    Is Jussie Smollett the Spokesman for Millennials?

    Is Jussie Smollett the Spokesman for Millennials?

    Tupac Amaru Shakur was a revolutionary figure, a prophet, and one of the foremost legends ever to be produced by the hip hop genre. His outspokenness mixed with his ability to cater to street sensibilities and the THUG LIFE (“The Hatred U Give Little Infants F–– Everyone”) movement solidified his place as one of the most controversial, poetic, and timely figures of his day. Jussie Smollett is a marginal actor who claims that he is the “Gay Tupac.” This is offensive to the estate of Mr. Shakur and the LGBTQ community. But both Mr. Smollett and the representatives of this faction of the world are in error for propagating the notion of an anti-concept, the “hate crime.” Even if (which appears to be doubtful based on the facts) Smollett had been attacked for his being a gay African American man, it would not mean that his chemical makeup or life as a gay person grants him special privileges before the law. Smollett brings the thought of a scared little boy in a man’s frame. Sensing that he would lose face over the whole debacle, he hid behind both the Pan-African and the rainbow flags.
