This may be old news but it something that needs to be resaid.

A$AP Rocky Does He Say Who Stays Who Goes Judge Of Fashion? Possibly.

"I ain't fuckin' with that Been Trill swear them niggas booty like Tip Drill" and "HBA shit is weak, you can keep that" (which he said twice he must be pissed with them) are lyrics rapped on A$AP Rocky's Multiply track featuring Juicy J. With those lyrics it coins the question does A$AP Rocky have the say so with who stays and who goes when it comes to fashion? Some say yes others say no. My honest opinion I say yes he does have the power due to his strong force within fashion when it comes to bringing some brands and designers to the forefront for example Raf Simmons and Rick Owens. Let me put this in perspective in 2011 when his debut mixtape Live Love A$AP was released a close relationship was being made with designer Jeremy Scott (one of my favorites) from seeing a pair of Jeremy Scott for Adidas sneakers in his Out of This World music video and even mentioning him within the song while listing a list of designers/brands to doing an interview together for Complex to releasing a sneaker together for Adidas. On top of that Jeremy and Rocky having a moment while having a mini documentary SVDDXNLY by Noisey. So would you say he gave Jeremy Scott his big break? Even though I knew of Jeremy Scott before Rocky not too many other people did until he wore a pair of his sneakers and clothing. Now on to the slight diss by A$AP saying those lyrics he started a small revolution against the brands to where folks have started burning their Been Trill and HBA (Hood By Air) clothing. HYPEBEAST?!?!?! Very much so. But that's none of my business. The lingering questions from the lyrics would be "What credit is he speaking of?" and "Didn't those brands give him his start?" "Didn't they give each other a big start?" Here are my answers to these questions if I was asked about the topic. These are my opinions *Uses interview voice*:

- What credit is he speaking of? The credit I think he is speaking of is how it was almost not recognized by these brands that they had a big artist like him endorsing their brand. Maybe a collection devoted to him.
- Didn't those brand give him his start? They made him a bigger artist within fashion rather than musically.
- Didn't they give each other a big start? Once again within fashion they made him bigger but with the brands he slightly did make them more prominent.

Overall I say A$AP is doing his thing when it comes to fashion he is a big piece of real estate when it comes to brands when he wears it others follow within the urban fashion community so maybe he is the judge and jury. Cause he did say in this lyrics

"I'm the motherf*ckin' Lord of this fashion shit
Don't I deserve just to brag a bit?
Set the blueprint, fuck your two cents
Number 1 stunner, ask Tumblr if I'm accurate
My motherfuckin' swag is immaculate"

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.

What you did sounds dumb to me

An open letter to my father
The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.
