Beyoncé. Then Jay Z. Now Eminem.

Adult R&B and Hip Hop is speaking to our here and now. It is nice to have all of the other music that talks about little to nothing. You can take all of those songs and pile them up.

I will listen to Beyonce’s Lemonade, Jay-Z’s 4:44, and Eminem’s Freestyle that he released on Oct. 10, 2017.

Eminem has always been able to use his voice to tap into your emotions, but this freestyle reached into my heart and expressed everything I ever wanted to say and more.

According to Eminem, a line has been drawn, and it is time for America to stand up.

Eminem, you, sir are right.

Enough is enough.

Jemelle Hill has the right to speak on political things, as I see other people on ESPN saying much more than she did on ESPN. They are black. She is black. What is the difference? Is it her gender? Can a black woman speak about sports?

She is right. After all of Jerry Jones and the NFL Commissioner issued individual statements saying that the NFL players must stand. Now, this NFL will let a person who has beat women, beat kids, raped women, committed robbery, committed assault, driving with drugs, and the list can go on. But, the league draws the line at players protesting for equal protection under the law. It is that pesky 13, 14, and 15th amendment that they are fighting to see fulfilled. Along the way, let’s add more amendments, but the NFL owners want it to end not because the issues are addressed, but it is bad for business and the President wanted it to end.

We cannot ask the NFL players to shoulder this burden alone. They are playing under un-guaranteed contracts. This means if they don’t play, they don’t get a check that week.

Are you willing to give up your means of support for a day or days? Are you willing to risk being fired from something that you have been doing for 20+years of your life?

No. Most of us cannot afford to just not have a check for the cause. We need to respect the fact that many of them cannot afford this either.

Thus, the NFL Players Union needs to either collectively stand or collectively kneel in order to make a statement. Individual players should not be making this statement alone.

“It’s a Dream Come True” Porsha Williams Announces Pregnancy

Published

Our favorite Atlanta housewife, Porsha Williams, is expecting her first child after suffering from a miscarriage six years ago.

Williams told People Magazine,  that once she heard the news she was excited, yet fearful. Fearful because the reason she lost the first baby due to suffering from fibroids and having to have a myomectomy. The thirty-seven year old is leaning on her boyfriend, Dennis McKinley, for support.

Williams exclaims, “The thought of me getting that blessing after praying for it for so long and getting that blessing with someone who is just as excited as me — it’s Dennis’ first child, just like me — and it’s something we’ve both always wanted … It’s like a dream come true.” While the pregnancy is a surprise for the both of them, Williams says that it has brought them closer together and they’ve become a family overnight.

Hopefully we get to witness Williams’ pregnancy journey on the upcoming season of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”

We wish Porsha a successful pregnancy here at King of Reads.

Frank Ocean Clarifies Cease & Desist on Travis Scott “It Wasn’t about the Music it was about the LGBT Community”

Travis Scott’s “Astroworld” has caused its fair share of controversy, more-so the one-sided beef with Nicki Minaj. This past week the “Sicko Mode” rapper had to deal with a cease and desist letter from the hands of Frank Ocean. Rumors started swirling that the “Pyramids” singer didn’t like the effects that Scott added to his vocals on “Carousel.” Frank Ocean took to Tumblr to clear up the rumors and give his side of the situation. Ocean says,

“I think the song sounds cool, I did it in like 20 minutes and the mix sounds the way Travis wanted it to sound for his record. I also approved it before it came out so the cease and desist wasn’t about 🔊 it was about 🏳️‍🌈. Me and Travis resolved it amongst ourselves weeks ago. 💖”

The pride flag emoji symbolizes how transgender, Amanda Lepore, was removed from Scott’s album cover. Now that the issue was resolved between the two musicians, Scott posted his own response to the situation, via Instagram.

It’s great to see that the two settled their issues outside of the courtroom. Shoutout to Frank for fighting for LGBT rights and now standing down. Let’s hope the two will continue to make great music together.
