Barack Obama has teamed up with Chance the Rapper and Steph Curry in a new PSA supporting the MBK Alliance. My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) was created back in 2014 to address opportunity gaps that many young men of color face. In the commercial, you’ll hear a snippet from a previous speech that Barack Obama gave, “I want you to know, you matter. There is nothing, not a single thing, that’s more important to the future of America than whether or not young people all across this country can achieve their dreams.”
Chance and Barack have collaborated together previously, but given Steph’s recent controversy in turning down the invite to visit The White House, many see this as a dig to President Trump. Whatever. 🙂
48 posts and counting! I’m convinced that writer’s block is a thing that happens to everyone. I can still remember being in college and becoming upset at myself when I knew I had waited until the last minute to complete a paper. Typical. Writing always came easily when it wasn’t out of desperation and when it wasn’t at a time that I needed it the most. These “A Collection” posts are my favorite because they don’t ever require writing, but I like to write a little piece to go along with it anyways. It’s nice to just sift through a bunch of images and decide on the spot if I want to include them or not. I will usually know within a second and if I’m thinking about one for too long, that might also mean something too. I like to think that all of the images represent the mood that I’m in or a period in my life. I never actually write out the exact feeling at that moment and we’re completely okay with that. If you read into these a bit though, you can always sense a type of pattern.
This year, we missed both the Grammy awards and the red carpet. We’ve been on a pretty good streak so far with awards shows, but today I wanted to take the day off and instead, I went to go see “50 Shades Darker” with a couple of my girlfriends. At dinner later on, the show happened to be airing at the restaurant we were at so I caught a few glimpses, but we’re likely going to catch up on all the notable performances and speeches in the next day or two. As always, Grammy fashion is sometimes the award show that produces the most talked about outfits so with that, here are our favorites along with ones that we feel we have to highlight just because!
It’s the eve before Christmas Eve! I don’t know about you all, but every year, I always look forward to hearing how some of my favorite artists from the year will put their spin on things for a Christmas album or mixtape. One year, I couldn’t stop listening to Ariana Grande’s and this year, I’m glad to be listening to a joint project by Jeremih and Chance the Rapper. Have any of you listened to it yet and what are your favorite tracks? We’re listening as we type and using this as our soundtrack for the night as we get some work done and continue blogging for Yow Yow!
