What does Jim Brown, Ray Lewis, and Kanye West all have in common? President-elect Donald Trump.

The two NFL legends, along with deranged rapper Kanye West all met him at his Trump Tower offices earlier today. Not to mention they were escorted by the Coon-Ambassador Omarosa Manigault.

Trampled by the outrage on social media, Kanye tweets what he thought was an explanation to the bizarre meet up. 

Am I shock? absolutely not. Once Kanye announced that "if he did vote he would have voted for Donald" I knew this would happened. Next he'll be performing at the inauguration. Many of times we have dismissed Kanye's odd behavior for a mental health issues but he told us the truth a few years ago - 'I'm a hypocrite, bro"

ForeverMeah says...New Slaves wasn't just a Kanye song. 
What's the cost fame?
Whatever it is I hope I'm broke enough to afford it.


Maybe watching Kanye Pest and Scott Dipshit spiral out of control with drugs and alcohol abuse, ex-junkie NBA player, Lamar Odom decides to give sobriety a shot by checking himself into rehab.

According to sources, Lamar has been in a San Diego Rehabilitation Center for 4 days, and
 “did it for his kids” and “also wanted to feel 100 percent again. He did not relapse, but felt like he wanted to get away and start fresh for the New Year.”

Back in 2015Lamar Odom was found unconscious at  the Love Ranch due to drug overdose. 

ForeverMeah says...
It's safe to say since Khloe and Lamar have officially divorced we won't catch this on KUWTK. Get Well, brother. Peace.


It's Monday and although I could've shared my thoughts on J-Cole's new album "4 Your Eyez Only" on Friday when it dropped - I decided to wait and let it sit with me for a moment before I shared my thoughts.

Before I get started - I love J. Cole - ok, we clear on that.. cool.. continue.

Disclaimer:
I won't act as though I am one of those OG's that preach about needing to hear real hip-hop and I'm tired of the "dopehead" music that is out now... (well not in this post anyway). I too like my dosage of ratchet-mumble music. But there are some artist that understands the need to have BALANCE and I look for that balance from the artists such as J.Cole, Kendrick Lamar, and Big K.R.I.T. to name a few.

Immediately after my first listening I wasn't ready for the ride J. Cole was taking his listener. As I should have known better than to think I was going to be able to shuffle through Cole album. I knew I needed a quiet moment in time to dissect this album and listen to the message that's always lost between the music.

The album story starts off with an emotional J. Cole contemplating rather he wants to live or die while tethering on the lines of right and wrong.   

Lord, Lord—
The bells getting loud, ain't nowhere to hide
Got nowhere to go, put away my pride
Tired of feeling low even when I'm high
Ain't no way to live, do I wanna die?
I don't know, I don't know
Bells getting loud, ain't nowhere to hide
Got nowhere to go, put away my pride
Tired of feeling low even when I'm high
Ain't no way to live, do I wanna die?
I don't know, I don't know - 

While not quit done with the ways of streets Cole finds his soulmate in Deja Vu and She's Mine Part 1. 
I know you were made for me but

Darling don't you wait for me
Cause I can see the promise land
But I can't do no promising
I know you were made for me but
Darling don't you wait for me
Cause I can see the promise land
But I can't do no promising [Deja Vu]

I must say the next track - Change - stole my heart. Directly and indirectly understanding the battle some have within themselves with Good and Evil. 


Yeah, my intuition is telling me there'll be better days

I sit in silence and find whenever I meditate
My fears alleviate, my tears evaporate
My faith don't deviate, ideas don't have a date
But see I'm growing and getting stronger with every breath
Bringing me closer to Heaven's doors with every step
As we speak I'm at peace, no longer scared to die
Most niggas don't believe in God and so they terrified
It's either that or they be fearing they gon' go to Hell
Asking the father for forgiveness—God, I'm overwhelmed 

(Please God, I want to go to Heaven) - [Change]
Halfway through the album Cole paints a beautiful portrait of Life, Death, Religion, Love, and Friendship. The happy-new-dad even opens up about his fears as a new father in the track, She's Mine, Pt. 2. 
Am I worthy of this gift

Am I strong enough to lift, into a place that I can see
Someone more important than me?
Am I worthy of this gift? (Am I worthy of this gift?) [She's Mine, Pt.2

Now somewhere between track 8 and 10 I realize that J. Cole wasn't just giving us a glimpse at his story but of a friend. A friend of Cole's who must have died in the streets and left behind a daughter. He breaks this all down in the last track "4 Your Eyez Only". 

"Nigga what you talking 'bout? Fuck is you getting at?"

He said, "Listen, I got no time to dive into descriptions
But I've been having premonitions
Just call it visions from the other side
I got a feeling I won't see tomorrow
Like the time I'm living on is borrowed
With that said, the only thing I'm proud to say, I was a father
Write my story down and if I pass
Go play it for my daughter when she ready"
And so I'm leaving you this record for your eyes only [4 Your Eyez Only


ForeverMeah says...Classic. 


Early last week the The 2017 Golden Globe nominations were announced and although it wasn't completely white-washed as the Oscars, the cast of the Starz scripted drama POWER was left out in the cold for December.  

This snub however didn't sit too well with the executive producer, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson. He took to his social media to vent as usual. 

50 Cent captioned this on his IG post:
“Golden Globe’s can suck a d**k. I accept my series POWER was not intended to be a signature show for the network, but it is the highest rated show,” 50 Cent captioned on his Instagram post. “I know my audience very well. I’m done promoting this outside of contractual obligations. SEASON 4 KANAN MUST DIE, I got other sh*t to do.”

But more importantly for the first time in award history, three black women (Viola Davis, Naomie Harris and Octavia Spencer) are all nominated for Best Supporting Actress. The success of Moonlight earned nominations in six different film categories including Best Director.  As for TV, Issa Rae's years worth of hard work earned her a best actress nomination for a comedy series with Insecure. Not to mention, Donald Glover's Atlanta is up for best comedy and best actor.

fall for something or stand for anything. (Did I say that right? IDK, maybe.) 


During a recent appearance in New York City, the Maybach Music Mogul, Rick Ross, has some things to say about Kanye West and his recent "circumstances"

What may have started out as a message of positivity turned out to be a bit more confusing than just that. 

Rozay had this to say recently of Kanye: 
"One time for Yeezy ... My homie a genius. For everybody who thought he was wigging out, he played y'all niggas."
Rick Ross seems to be implying that Kanye West's mental breakdown that led to his hospitalization may have been a stunt. To make this statement even stranger, producer Mike Dean was in attendance, and is actually in the background of the video. Mike Dean is as close a collaborator to Kanye as it gets. Do you think he was pissed by the remarks?

Check out the clip below, and let me know if people are reading too much into this or Rozay dead-on about Kanye. 



ForeverMeah says...we shouldn't make fun of Kanye West during his time of need even if he played himself.
