    ONCE UPON A TIME IN HARLEM PT2

    in Hip Hop Music

    Two years ago a friend of mine asked me to say some emcee rhymes
    So I said this rhyme I’m about to say, the rhyme was def and it went this way:
    Took a test to become an emcee, and Orange Krush became amazed at me
    So Larry put me inside his Cadillac, the chauffeur drove off and we never came back
    Dave cut the record down to the bone, and now they got me rockin on the microphone…”
    “You’re a five dollar boy and I’m a million dollar man
    You’re a sucker emcee and you’re my fan


    You try to bite rhymes, all lines are mine, you’re a sucker emcee in a pair of Calvin Kleins
    Coming from the wackest part of town, trying to rap but you can’t get down
    You don’t even know your English, your verbs or noun
    You’re just a sucker emcee, you sad faced clown

    Don't Hit Your Children: Alternatives to physically disciplining black children

    in Women

     


    There is a major question in the black community about whether or not physical punishment is a viable option for disciplining children. The practice has been around since slavery and is so ingrained into black parents, that it isn't viewed as something that is problematic but rather a necessary component to parenting. In her Book Beating Black Kids, author Asadah Kirkland, discusses why black parents have got to change their thinking about this tradition and gives effective alternatives for parents who may be uninformed about how to be effective at parenting in a way that doesn't involve corporal punishment. Asadah Kirkland is the featured guest on the show. Please call in and share your views. WE WILL ALSO BE DISCUSSING THE LATEST IN THE NYPD BROOKLYN POLICE SHOOTING. CALL IN 347-215-8933
