Let’s Talk About Hip Hop – Lyrics For The Soul

With the hip hop making it's way into mainstream popular culture, the overall view of hip hop can easily be centered around a few themes in music. Hip hop today can feature lyrics and stories about Guns. violence, pimping, and selling drugs. As well as, having a difficult childhood and becoming rich by "making it" in the rap game. Being a fan of the hip hop genre for as long as i can remember, I always grew up hearing the same songs over and over again on the radio. During the early 2000's, … [Continue Reading...]

My Visit to the Sokiku Nakatani Tea Room

Recently, I visited the Sokiku Nakatani Tea Room here on campus. I was initially surprised AS I thought it would just be the small space of the tea room but that space was actually on display in a larger room. It reminded me of a stage because of the raised platform and it being on display for the rest of the room. The one idea I would associate my visit with is Time. When you first enter and sit down, you are given time to quiet your mind. We sat in silence, to let the rest of the world and … [Continue Reading...]

“Men Lie, Women Lie, Numbers Don’t”

This is one of my favorite Jay-Z lines of all time. It’s so damn hard and so true. Well kind of true. Okay, not really true at all. But I still love this line.

But I did notice something … [Read More...]
