#MyVoteWillCount: YelloPain

A new rap star is emerging, and if you like the works of Hamilton but with a similar Kevin Gates sound then this artist will be the one for you.

#MyVoteWillCount: YelloPain

His name is YelloPain, and he is an informative 24-year-old, Ohio raised, and soon to be star. YelloPain began rapping at the early age of 7 in Dayton Ohio, where he was not taken seriously. It wasn't until he started rapping in the church that he was able to gain respect from those around him and really showcase his talent. After growing out of playing churches, he went on to partake in rap battles, perform at nightclubs and venues around his hometown.

With his career beginning to take off in 2019 and 2020, Yellopain has used this opportunity to educate the younger generations. This rapper is wise beyond his years and has a way of informing the youth about the political systems and the oppression that our country has placed on African Americans.

YelloPain has been an outspoken advocate of the BLM movement and in his video release of "The Impossible Game", he puts several things into perspective that will 100% give you the chills. By standing up for what he believes in, YelloPain is going to make history and be a strong leader for generations to come.

Aside from speaking out about oppression and systematic racism, YelloPain has taken a different approach to informing those about our voting system. This election is one of the most influential that we may see in our lifetimes. However, in YelloPain's newest song "My Vote Don't Count", he takes the leadership role in explaining the other branches of government. He really is able to explain that our voices need to be heard more than just every four years and the only way to really influence change is by being an active voter at local, state, and national events. Out of everything that YelloPain has released, this song is my personal favorite and deserves a high-ranking spot on the charts.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.
