Waka Flocka said he is black and didn’t sell his soul at ‘Wild N Out’ tour in Chicago


If you are anything like me you probably though Waka was buggin on Sway in the Morning the other day. He mentioned he was not Black and it caused a frenzy on the internet. Well on the Chicago stop of the Wild N Out tour where Waka was a musical guest he took a moment to clear the air.

What does it mean to you to be a Cubs fan? 

Being a Cubs fan for me means loyalty! I have been a Cubs fan for over 30 years and I have been waiting for a long time for the Cubs to reach the World Series. My very first professional sporting event was a Cubs game when I was 3 years old and I have been a fan ever since.

Why are you a Cubs fan?

I’m a Cubs fan because I lived on the North Side of Chicago when I was a kid and that’s all that I saw. My Uncle also used to live with us when I was a little girl he’s a Cubs fan. He took my sister and I to our very first Cubs game in 1983.

What were your feelings when they won the pennant? 

I was absolutely elated! I cried that night and was very overwhelmed at the notion of it even happening. It was something that I had never seen in my lifetime and I was completely overjoyed!

Who is your favorite African American Cubs player of all time and why? 

My favorite African American Cubs player is Andre Dawson. He was just so cool to me and represented us well.

How will you celebrate if they win the World Series?

I will definitely be at any parade that the city will have for them, and the night they win I’ll probably do a lot of screaming and crying.

Dedication, loyalty and patience are what it means to be a Cubs fan.

I grew in the inner South Side of the city surrounded by Sox fans. I became a Cubs in 1984 when I was a member of the Jackie Robinson West Cubs little league team.

What were your feelings when they won the pennant? 

I was very elated and felt satisfied with the results.

Who is your favorite African American Cubs player of all time and why? 
Andre Dawson is my favorite African American Cubs player. He played with intensity and had an awesome swing!

First, I will probably cry tears of joy, after that, I plan on going to the parade.

How long have they waited for a Cubs World Series: 40years

What does it mean to you to be a Cubs fan?
Being a Cubs fan means having pure dedication through thick and thin, good and bad times.

Why are you a Cubs fan?
I’m a Cubs fan because when my grandparents were living in New Orleans there was no team to watch on television. WGN was everywhere so they got hooked. When they moved to Chicago it never changed I would come home from school while moms and pops were at work and I was not allowed to touch the TV while the Cubs were on. So I became hooked and it’s been that way ever since.

What were your feelings when they won the pennant?
When the Cubs won the pennant, I had so many emotions. I thought of my grandparents my aunt and uncle who have all passed away. They were true blue Cubs fans.

Who is your favorite African American Cubs player of all time and why? 
My favorite African American Cubs player was and always will be Shawn Dunston because of his passion for the game.

How will you celebrate if they win the World Series?
I will celebrate with plenty of Jack Daniels mixed with tears as I stand outside of Wrigley Field.

Watching Tv While Black – The Empire Scandal

Ok I get it. The Cosby show is no longer on television. Serious allegations are swirling around someone many considered the nations dad. Positive representation of African Americans are almost non-existent. The Oscars are too white according to most media outlets and Iggy Azalea and Macklemore are stealing Hip Hop. OK I GET IT!!


The truth of the matter is that all forms of media are influential and have an effect on our psyches. With that being said, I have a confession to make.

Hello ….My name is Precise and I watch Scandal and Empire. 

Now that I have confessed to the world one of my deepest darkest secrets allow me to say that even though I watch these shows I am STILL a BLACK MAN and an Awesome guy.

For some reason there is a divide in our community. Those who label themselves “conscious” have a total disdain for these telvision shows and feel like they are setting black people back 100’s of years.

Many black men have decided that these shows are for women, and if a man watches them his masculinity is questionable.


Look…some of you take yourselves much to seriously. I agree that the portrayal of black people on television leaves a lot to be desired. Around the world we are viewed a specific way because of what is being fed through the media. It is important for us to take responsibility with regards to this.

Shonda Rhimes and Lee Daniels have taken some of this responsibility and boldly share a narrative of our lives that is complex and interesting.

I don’t know about you but I like to peel back the layers of who we are. It’s interesting and our experience extends past the history of slavery and civil rights.

We all have complexities and quirks. Just because I’m black doesn’t mean I should have to watch Eyes On The Prize  and Hidden Colors Vol 1, 2 and 3 all the time.

I like watching television with my 5k friends on Fb and sharing reactions in my status. I don’t post “spoilers” contrary to what some people (my sister) may think. Wendsday and Thursday nights are cool. It gives us the opportunity to come together and share something, even if it’s just a television show.


What do you think about Empire and Scandal? Do you feel these shows are horrible or great? Let me know in the comments. 🙂

Are you a Rapper or a Nigger? – 12 Years A Slave


I wasn’t really sure what to expect when it came to this movie. When it comes to movies that have the intention of telling the story of the African American Holocaust/Slavery I find that something always seems to be missing. The depictions are watered down. “The Butler” which is a great movie is an example of this. The African American Holocaust/Slavery and Civil Rights can not be summed up in stock videos and a few pictures of Harriet Tubman and Dr King. It is a complex, layered, and gruesome history that must be told in its totality.

“12 Years A Slave” does an exceptional job at pulling the curtain back on the history of America when it comes to its mired past.

**SPOILER ALERT (Not really)**

“12 Years A Slave” is based on a true story from the 1853 biography of Solomon Northup. Solomon Northup played by Chiwetel Ejiofor was a FREE BLACK MAN from Sarasota Springs New York, who was kidnapped while he was in Washington DC in 1841 and was sold into slavery. He spent 12 yrs as a slave.

There were a few scenes that stood out. One scene in particular involved Solomon who was renamed Platt after he became a slave. William Ford his master at the time was having difficulty moving lumber down the narrow Indian Creek in Louisiana. Platt explained to him that he could build log rafts and use those to ship his lumber down the creek. As he was giving his explanation one of the overseers Tibeats was looking extremely confused and jealous because of Platt’s extensive knowledge. William Ford looks at Tibeats and explains how he is impressed with Platt’s knowledge. Tibeats turns to Platt and asks him “Are you an engineer or a nigger?”

12-years-a-slave-paul-dano-600That specific question resonated with me specifically because of the hyper racial society we live in now.

Solomon/Platt maintained a dignity that seems to be lacking in our society today.

In  2013 we have people who are comfortable with being called and labeled niggers. We are bombarded with buffoonery. Many times the worst examples of who we are broadcast throughout the world as a representation of our culture.

It’s time to draw a line in the sand.

filesWhen I tell people Im a rapper I get a look from them….a confused look. :-/ They may say “You don’t look like a rapper.” or ” Where is all of your jewelry?”. I could go on and on with the assumptions and judgements people make with respect to me being a rapper, but that would take up my entire post.

I come from a school of thought that understands the ability that all of us have as human beings. I represent a culture that at its best is truly the voice of who we are. We educate, we learn, we have fun and influence the world.

I feel like Hip Hop has been enslaved for the past 20+ years and its time to free ourselves. We must never forget who we are. We can never forget our purpose.

Our purpose is to change the world.

I am a Rapper not a nigger.
