Da Last Don from Master P Released 20 Years Ago Today

20 years ago, today Master P released what was supposed to be his final album. Da Last Don turned out to be a double album as it followed his most successful project, Ghetto D. As we all know, he dropped another the following year, Only God Can Judge Me. MP Da Last Don went on to sell over 4 million copies. Many people didn’t give Master P his props then because there’s always some hatred towards the south. Master P has always been one of my favorite rappers, not for his lyricism but his ability to make good music. Master P went on a good 4-5 ... [read more]

Instant Lather and Savings with Dove When Shopping at CVS

This Post is sponsored by Mirum but all opinions are 100% my own. It seemed like we had one of the longest winters that I could remember. It’s crazy to think that we have less than a month before we start our summer. With summer around the corner, that usually means more time spent outside. Whether I’m outside playing basketball or throwing a football with the neighborhood kids or doing some yard work, it’s hot. This is the time of year where I’ll stock up on body wash because I take more showers throughout the summer more than any other ... [read more]

Game 7 Houston Versus Golden State for Trip to NBA Finals

After witnessing another epic performance from Lebron James last night, we turn our attention to the Western Conference. The Cleveland Cavaliers once again proved to be the Kings of the East and held off the young and tough Celtics. Honestly, I said if Lebron put up another clutch performance and get some help, Cleveland would advance. Now let’s turn our attention to the Game 7 taking place tonight between the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors. Coming into this series, my thoughts were that it would go six games with the Warriors ... [read more]
