Bloggers note: As we observe what is currently happening in regards to Police/Civilian relations in the United States, I wanted to share this piece written by Desmond Cole. This article appeared first in the May 2015 issue of Toronto Life.
The summer I was nine, my teenage cousin Sana came from England to visit my family in Oshawa. He was tall, handsome and obnoxious, the kind of guy who could palm a basketball like Michael Jordan. I was his shadow during his visit, totally in awe of his confidence—he was always saying something clever to knock me off balance.
One day, we took Sana and his parents on a road trip to Niagara Falls. Just past St. Catharines, Sana tossed a dirty tissue out the window. Within seconds, we heard a siren: a cop had been driving behind us, and he immediately pulled us onto the shoulder. A hush came over the car as the stocky officer strode up to the window and asked my dad if he knew why we’d been stopped. “Yes,” my father answered, his voice shaky, like a child in the principal’s office. My dad isn’t a big man, but he always cut an imposing figure in our household. This was the first time I realized he could be afraid of something. “He’s going to pick it up right now,” he assured the officer nervously, as Sana exited the car to retrieve the garbage. The cop seemed casually uninterested, but everyone in the car thrummed with tension, as if they were bracing for something catastrophic. After Sana returned, the officer let us go. We drove off, overcome with silence until my father finally exploded. “You realize everyone in this car is black, right?” he thundered at Sana. “Yes, Uncle,” Sana whispered, his head down and shoulders slumped. That afternoon, my imposing father and cocky cousin had trembled in fear over a discarded Kleenex. Continue reading

GET READY FOR A NEW TYPE OF HUSTLE!!! The new reality formatted show is about 8 people who are going to be living in a house in downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada together for one month (30 days) this upcoming Summer 2015. It is set to begin production in August where popular attractions in the city of Toronto, such as the Toronto Caribbean Carnival a.k.a. “Caribana” and the C.N.E. (Canadian National Exhibition) a.k.a. “The Ex” can be incorporated into the show.
Everyday will be a new hustle; for example day 1 selling water bottles, day 2 selling t-shirts, day 3 selling chocolate. The very first episode each contestant on the show will be given $100 dollars and that’s all they’ll have to flip, double and/or triple up everyday with the different hustles they choose. Also another cool catch about the show is that the money they make, they have to use for food, so it’s a pretty serious hustle. So if you don’t hustle hard enough then you don’t eat! Continue reading

As Jay Z sees it, there is a clear solution to the problems facing musicians in the streaming age. They should band together — behind him, of course.
On Monday, Jay Z, the rap star and entertainment mogul, announced his plans for Tidal, a subscription streaming service he recently bought for $56 million. Facing competition from Spotify, Google and other companies that will soon include Apple, Tidal will be fashioned as a home for high-fidelity audio and exclusive content.
But perhaps the most notable part of Jay Z’s strategy is that a majority of the company will be owned by artists. The move may bring financial benefits for those involved, but it is also powerfully symbolic in a business where musicians have seldom had direct control over how their work is consumed.

Drake once paid respect to the Wu-Tang Clan with his “It’s Yourz”-sampling homage “Wu-Tang Forever,” and it turns out the admiration is mutual — at least for certain members of the Staten Island rap institution.
After that song dropped, some fans sketched unflattering comparisons between the lyrically simplistic Drake single — which reached No. 52 on the Billboard chart — and Wu’s hyper-intricate rhymes.
One meme positioned Drake’s Continue reading
