  • FRSHRZ - A suit is the uniform of success. And elegance.

    Today was something special. I had the opportunity to spend the day
    with Artcha, SKANDOUZ, and Dray Styles - collectively known as FRSHRZ
    - a talented London hip-hop trio. It was great hearing them talk about
    their passion for music, Hip Hop Culture, and how they've made
    creating music into a career.

    They discussed how they each bring something different to the group;
    Artcha is an accomplished lyricist, producer, educator, and fashion
    SKANDOUZ contributes leadership, artistry, Journalism, and events
    management. Dray Styles is a hybrid MC who has flawlessly transitioned
    between Grime and Hip Hop and is also an innovator when it comes to
    bringing music to the fitness world.
    Dray Styles also has a fantastic new single out now “Love is” which is
    very much worth your time.

    We talked about their creative process, which involves bouncing off
    each other's ideas during studio sessions and learning from each
    other's experiences in order to create something new.
    FRSHRZ, have a combined five degrees between them. This makes them the
    most academically educated rap group I’ve had the pleasure of
    listening to so far.

    As I listened to their latest EP “Glass Ceiling”, I was
    captivated not only by their sound and lyrics but also by the story
    behind the tracks.
The rappers from FRSHRZ talked openly about how
    they overcame dyslexia in order to achieve success in higher education
    and music. Hearing about this made me have an immense amount of
    respect for these men, as it can be difficult for those on the
    spectrum to break into higher education and realise success across
    disciplines. It is inspiring that FRSHRZ refused to let dyslexia hold
    them back from reaching their potential.

    They recently put on an event to honor their late friend, (UK Hip hop
    Legend) Ty, who passed away in 2020. The group held a two tribute
    concerts at the Jazz Café in 2021 and 2022 managing to raise £4,000
    for Brixton Soap Kitchen.
The members of FRSHRZ are passionate about
    giving back to the community and they used this opportunity to spread
    awareness while helping those in need. It was inspiring to see these
    young artists put together these successful events and it really
    showed how much they care about their communities. The money raised
    went towards providing support for homeless people as well as meals
    for low-income families in Brixton.

    FRSHRZ are a Hip-Hop group that we can be proud of. They represent the
    best of our community with their unique style and lyrical proficiency.
    From their beats to the messages they send through their lyrics,
    FRSHRZ take pride in empowering others and inspiring positive change.
    Not only do they advocate for social justice, but they also carry
    themselves with excellence and portray an image that can serve as a
    role model for those in the Hip-Hop culture.

    Their dedication to creating meaningful music is evident in every song
    that they make. Every rap carries a powerful punch; each one is
    thoughtfully written to express what needs to be spoken about in our
    society today. They challenge authority by asking difficult questions,
    while also providing solutions for issues we are currently facing.

    Look out for the video interview on the site.

  • Is Beyonce evil or are people VERY very uneducated


    I am not a huge fan of Beyoncé, but I do think that she is immensely talented.

    She paid homage to many African cultures within the film, but one of the most prominent was in her up-dress which resembled that of Hathor from Ancient Egyptian culture. Many people found this dress to be a beautiful representation of strong African culture and heritage. However, some Black people have drawn comparisons between the dress and Baphomet a symbol associated with Satanism in Western occultism. While these two symbols may seem to be similar at first glance, there are several important differences between them that cannot be overlooked.

    To start, Baphomet is a symbolic figure that has been used by Western occultists since at least as far back as the 18th century; it is not an appropriation nor representation of any other cultures’ religious or spiritual beliefs.

    It is shocking to realize that African people do not know much about the gods that originated from their own histories anymore.

    Her outfit sparked a conversation in which many Africans were unaware of the source and meaning behind it.

    Despite our lack of knowledge, this moment proved to be incredibly powerful. Seeing my own cultural heritage represented in such a high profile way gave me a profound sense of pride and joy. It demonstrated how far we have come in reclaiming and celebrating our history, even if we are still not as knowledgeable about it as we should be.

  • Jay-Z Just Earned "Multi" Billionaire Status After Cashing Out His Stake In D'Ussé Cognac


    Back in 2012, Jay-Z launched a cognac brand called "D'Ussé" as a partnership with liquor behemoth Bacardi. For the next decade it was a great partnership. Jay handled marketing. Bacardi handled production and distribution. And since this was Jay-Z, it wasn't a lopsided partnership with the huge liquor conglomerate owning 95% and the celebrity doing all the work for a sliver. It was a perfectly equal 50/50 joint venture.

    Unfortunately, that decade of prosperity ended in late 2022 with a flurry of lawsuits. The lawsuits centered around the overall valuation of D'Ussé. Bacardi wanted to buy controlling ownership of D'Ussé, and Jay was totally open to that concept… but they were very far apart on how much the brand was worth.

    According to court filings that were made public last month, at some point in 2022 Jay offered to sell his 50% stake to Bacardi at a $3 billion valuation. In other words, he was offering to accept $1.5 billion. How kind of him!

    Bacardi rejected that valuation claiming that it had a handshake deal with the rapper from December 2021 in which he agreed on a deal at half the valuation. AKA, a total valuation of $1.5 billion. Bacardi claimed Jay arbitrarily doubled the price.

    In his lawsuit Jay also accused Bacardi of purposely mismanaging D'Ussé to drive the brand's value down.

    Yada yada (it's Friday night at 10pm as I write this)… everything came to happy conclusion today…

    After months of back-and-forth bitter legal fighting, today Bloomberg Law revealed that Jay and Bacardi had squashed their beef.

    According to the reported terms of the agreement, Bacardi bought 25.1% of Jay's 50% stake, leaving him with 24.9% and them with 75.1%. The purchase price valuation used in the transaction was apparently $3 billion – the amount Jay demanded after initially agreeing to half that much in December 2021. So it sounds like Jay got his way.

    Assuming Jay sold basically 25% for his stake at a $3 billion valuation, that means he just earned a cash windfall of…

    $750 million

    After taxes that will add around $300 million to Jay's previous $1.3 billion net worth. So let's call his new net worth $1.6 billion. But that's not the whole picture!

    At a $3 billion valuation, Jay's remaining 24.9% stake is worth…

    $747 million

    So even if we're very conservative, Jay's current net worth at least $2 billion. Easily enough for Jay to have achieved the coveted "multi" billionaire status.

  • Roseanna Cox is getting ready to fight on the Floyd Mayweather under card.

    Roseanna Cox is getting ready to fight on the Floyd Mayweather under card. This is a huge opportunity and Roseanna knows it, so she has been training hard for this moment. She's pushed her body to its limits and worked on her techniques for months in order to be ready for what will surely be one of the toughest fights of her life. With hours of sparring sessions, shadowboxing drills and self-defense classes, Roseanna has prepared herself in every way possible to take this match head on.

    Roseanna Cox is about to fight Carla McKenzie in a boxing match on the 25th of February. It'll be an intense face off, but I'm confident that Roseanna will come out the victor in the end. She's been training and has improved her technique significantly. Her dedication to this sport and determination to win have made it clear that she's not going into this bout unprepared.
    Roseanna has worked hard to make sure she can defend herself against her opponent's punches and land a few of her own as well. She knows exactly how much time she needs to put in each day in order to ensure that when the bell rings at the start of the fight, she'll be ready for anything thrown at her. With all that hard work behind her, I'm certain Roseanna will take home the win on February 25th. Roseanna has taken this fight against Carla at only two weeks' notice.

    pictures taken by @Either Haruki

    In 2018, Roseanna Cox was diagnosed with having a cyst on her brain and was told she wouldn't be able to box again. This news came as a shock to the boxing community who knew of Roseanna's great talent in the ring. Despite this diagnosis, Roseanna pushed through the challenge and continued to fight for her dreams. Now, in 2023, she is fighting on Floyd Undercard despite her initial diagnosis three years prior. As soon as Roseanna got the all clear she was back in the gym training.
    This incredible story of resilience has become an inspiration for many. It shows them that anything is possible if you have enough determination and faith in yourself. Roseanna has faced tremendous odds over the past couple of years but continues to stay positive despite these setbacks. Her courage and strength are admirable qualities which will continue to guide her forward on her journey within boxing circles.

    Roseanna Cox is a beacon of hope in our community. The video interview will undoubtedly spark joy in many hearts and motivate us all to lead more meaningful lives by giving back as well as help others realize their full potentials.

  • When your mental Health fails.

    The stigma around mental health can be a strong one, especially for men. Even with the growing awareness of mental health issues, many are still too ashamed to speak up and seek help when something goes wrong. I know this first-hand because I am a man who has had his own struggles with mental health.
    I was always taught by society that my emotional state is something that I should “man up” about and that it doesn’t matter if I feel down or anxious from time to time. Eventually, these feelings became overwhelming, and it felt like there was no way out of them. After trying different strategies to cope on my own, nothing seemed to work - until a friend reached out and encouraged me to get help from a professional.

    That's when I made the decision to join the gym and begin exercising regularly as part of a holistic approach towards self-care. Physically moving around helped me get out of my head and into action while providing a sense of accomplishment each day through completing exercise goals.

    I eventually realized that if I wanted to be healthy and take care of myself, then exercise had to become part of my routine. Finally, after mustering up enough courage and strength, I started going regularly.
    The results have been nothing short of extraordinary! Not only do I feel more confident in my own skin but also my overall health has improved immensely too. Exercise has become a form of self-care for me because it helps keep both my mental and physical wellbeing balanced.

    I am now planning on using writing as an outlet for my thoughts, feelings and ideas so that they can be heard by others. This is my opportunity to express myself in a completely different way than before; It is both exciting and intimidating at the same time! I feel like this could be the start of something beautiful – or it could just be another flop of mine.

  • Real love doesn't abandon you.


    Real love doesn't abandon you. It's the kind of love that you can trust and rely on. Whenever times get tough, real love will be by your side to help carry the burden and offer a listening ear. Real love is patient and understanding; it never forces or pressures someone into making decisions that they're not comfortable with or don't agree with. Even if things don't always go as planned, real love is there for you providing reassurance, comfort and emotional support through it all.
    No matter what obstacles life throws our way, real love never stops believing in us and pushing us towards our goals. When we make mistakes or fall short of achieving something we had set out to do, they forgive us unconditionally and encourage us to keep trying until we succeed.

    Fake love can be destructive, leaving you feeling betrayed and heartbroken. It's hard to fathom that someone would pretend to care about you when in reality they are manipulating and taking advantage of your emotions. When fake love abandons you, it is difficult to process the suddenness of the situation. You question yourself - where did I go wrong? Was I not worth their time? How could they simply discard me like an old toy?
    The realization that someone so close to you was never actually on your side hurts much more than any physical pain could ever inflict. You feel foolish for believing all their sweet words and gestures while they were constructing a false relationship with no intention of lasting commitment or loyalty. All that remains is loneliness as the person who once professed love for you is now gone without a trace or explanation.

    Having an intimate partner who truly loves and cares for you is the greatest feeling. It can be quite difficult, however, to ensure that your partner loves you instead of what you can do for them. To make sure this happens, open communication is key. This will allow both partners to express their needs and desires in a way that leads to understanding and compromise.
    In a healthy relationship, each person should strive to show up authentically as themselves without worrying about how they can please or appear better to their partner. By respecting one another’s boundaries and taking care not to manipulate the other person through guilt or control tactics, it will become easier to focus on simply loving each other rather than what one might be able to do for the other.
