His album, Lesson One: Hip-Hop & Education, has hit Amazon bestsellerlists (#1 in Hot New Releases and #8 in Educational Music), and has received airplay on major radio stations around the world, due to his combination of deep insights and authentic Hiphop sound.

    Lak travels the country sharing his educational Hiphop soul music, offering "lessons" on topics that are rarely discussed, including current events, history, empowerment, political science, money management, and more. CBS calls Lesson One "creative, innovative, and informative." Dominion of New York Magazine says, "Most people who use Hiphop to educate do so badly. Lak does it so well."

    Lak is a youth activist, social critic, history and religion intellectual, and 
    an innovative education advocate. He is a Hiphop ambassador, and a noted speaker on the impact of the Hiphop culture. He holds degrees in Africana Studies, Communications, and Labor Studies from Rutgers University, and studied studio engineering at the Institute for Audio Research.

  • AFC South - NFL Preview; will Luck be on anyone's side in this division?

    in Sports

    "With the second pick in the NFL draft, the Tennessee Titans select Marcus Mariota" and "With the third pick in the NFL draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars select Dante Fowler, Jr."  The AFC South proudly had the Indianapolis Colts, in the AFC Championship game.  However, they also had two teams that drafed second and third, respectively.


    The Indianapolis Colts have won back to back AFC East titles, and played in the AFC Championship.  Andrew Luck has been everything the Colts hoped for when they drafted him with the first pick.  Offensively, they can line up against defense and put up points. The finished third in passing offense, but a disappointing 22nd, in rushing.  Defensively, the ranked a modest 11th, in yards allowed.  The lack of pass rush was evident, in the AFC Championship.  Through the draft and free agency, the Colts added Andre Johnson, Frank Gore, and Phillip Dorsett.  Two areas of concern: the offensive line and defense.


    Houston finished 9-7, and made the division race interesting, at one point.  However, J.J. Watt can not do everything even though he tried.   This team is the complete opposite of the Colts.  They win with defense.  They added Vince Wolfork, and are hoping that Jadeveon Clowney can return from his knee injury, and be as good as advertised.  Adrian Foster is going to miss significant time, which will hurt an already struggling offense.  The biggest question will be quarterback play.  They traded for Ryan Mallett last year, let Ryan Fitzpatrick leave, but Brian Hoyer is listed as the starting quarterback.  There should be no concern about defense, but offensively there are huge question marks.
