Damn Shame What They Did To That Dog!

Damn Shame What They Did To That Dog!(Deconstructing the Biblical Polemic Against the Pharisees)By Khalil AmaniRemember that scene in Coming To America where the landlord shows Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall that dirty-ass apartment—complete with a chalk outlining of a dead dog? The slumlord says, “Damn shame what they did to that dog!” Well, that’s kinda the sentiment I feel for how we have been mislead about biblical stuff. Our minds are mentally dead.The biggest problem with the New Testament…See More

Mumble Rap: This Ain’t That!

Mumble Rap: This Ain’t That!By Khalil AmaniI don’ took all I’m gonna take! These young hip-hop heads tryna play musical gymnastics and somersault Mumble Rap into the pantheon of rap genres by saying certain old school rappers gave birth to this genre—they’re trying to bridge that gap between Mumble Rap and what rappers like Busta Rhymes, Twista, Jaz-O, Bone Thugs & Harmony, Eminem—and even an early Jay-Z were doing. I’m not buying what they’re trying to sell and I’m not having it!The term…See More

Midlife Crisis or Born Stunna?

Midlife Crisis or Born Stunna?By Khalil AmaniAs I’ve become a “man of a certain age” (57) I’ve had the opportunity to reflect on my own mortality—the realization that I’m getting old. Looking around, I see my brothers and cousins and friends of a similar age getting older too.As I’ve gotten older I hear younger people…See More

FAMILY RANT. (15,000 mile in 3 weeks!)

FAMILY RANT. (15,000 mile in 3 weeks!)By Khalil AmaniI just need to address a familial shit-uation, so indulge me please? If you ain't family it's just gonna be some good reading. Might even make you feel better about your OWN shit-uation. LOL.I once traveled 15,000 miles in 3 weeks all for family. Let me explain.I’m so glad I’m a writer because I can set the record straight in print when people try to cast aspersions on my character. Such is the case with my baby sister, who seems to have…See More

Khalil Amani: The Irregular Regular!

Khalil Amani: The Irregular Regular!By Khalil AmaniWhat it do? For the 10 year anniversary of Straight Stuntin Magazine I was supposed to write this awesome article on Brother Polight, the new-jack, Rolls Royce-driving, Beverly Hills-living, conscious, Kemetic thinker—a guy who broke away from the traditional black consciousness mold with his ostentatious show of wealth; something that I’m really feeling, but after two DM’s on IG where he said it’s a go! Home-dude left me with my pen in the…See More

Zumba and the Old Guy!

Zumba and the Old Guy!By Khalil AmaniThis is a fun blog for me to write! As some of you already know, I’m a Zumba practitioner. I’m 57 years old and I’ve been doing Zumba religiously for one year and three months. I ain’t gonna lie. When I first started doing Zumba that shit used to kick my arse! Not learning the steps, mind you, but the aerobic workout! I was so out of shape that it was shameful.Some you know me through writing hip-hop blogs. To you, I say, you'd better start working out while…See More

Wack 100: Anti-Suge or Boss Bully?By Khalil AmaniI got beef with Wack 100! When I see him again it’s gonna be on-and-poppin’! I’m gonna walk up to him like I did at the last DJ Kay Slay party and ask him for a picture! If he slights me I’m gonna do exactly what I did the last time he blew me off—go sit my bitch-ass down somewhere…See More

Young Thug’s Dress: Our Collective Conscious Conundrum

Young Thug’s Dress: Our Collective Conscious Conundrum.By Khalil AmaniI admit it! I’ve done some things that hip-hop heads would consider “suspect” (i.e. gay). Yes I have!—from being a ballet dancer (something that Tupac and I have in common) and a “Magic Mike” stripper (something that Blood gang member & rapper The Game and I have in common) who wore a G-string wedged up between my butt-cheeks—to repping for gay rappers—to wearing Prince-like poet shirts with lace & frills. Some guys…See More

The Grandparent Show!

The Grandparent Show!By Khalil AmaniWhat kind of grandparents did you have? My grandparents (on my mother’s side) were old (as grandparents were back in those days). Their house smelled of old people—moth balls, Ben Gay, hot Florida humidity and other old people smells. We kids never really liked going to spend the weekend with our grandparents because my granddad was basically bedridden. He couldn’t do anything with us, save tell us old people stories. I mostly remember having to help him cook…See More

On Killing Cops: When “Chickens Come Home To Roost!”

On Killing Cops: When “Chickens Come Home To Roost!”By Khalil AmaniWe are living in tumultuous times! As the cartoon character Yosemite Sam would say, “What in Tarnations is going on?” It would seem that violence in America is at an all-time high, even though the statistics say that since President Obama has been in office violence has actually decreased—dramatically! But if you let Donald Trump tell it, America is on the brink of anarchy. (This numbnut is the ultimate demagogue.)What happens…See More

Boosie’s Cartoonish Rant Against “The Gays.”

Boosie’s Cartoonish Rant Against “The Gays.”By Khalil AmaniFirst things first! I’m-a need Lil Boosie Badazz to holla at Andre 3000 about that verse on the remix of “Walk It Out”—“Even Jesus had 12 disciples on the level/trigga/whateva!” Tell 3-Stacks that I know he read my book and copped the lyric from my book. (Yes! I met Andre 3000 on 7-22-2002  Smokin' Aces tour in Denver and gave him my book, “Ghetto Religiosity 2000…” the chapter, “Jesus in Da Hood”) If I can’t get any residuals at least…See More

Orlando & Our Christian Hypocrisy & Complicity

Orlando & Our Christian Hypocrisy & ComplicityBy Khalil AmaniWhen that white boy (Dylann Roof) went into an all-black church (Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church) in Charleston, S.C. and gunned down those 9 black people we were sympathetic—and outraged! We talked about how the police handled the shooter with kid gloves, even taking him to Burger King before taking him to jail. Oh, we were appalled! The only people that lauded the church shooting were Redneck crackas who just got…See More

Dying Without Jesus

Dying Without JesusBy Khalil AmaniConsciousness. As the child of former slaves of the Diaspora I consider myself “conscious”—meaning aware of who I am as a black man in America—meaning that I’m aware of my history, culture, and native land—meaning that I am thoroughly familiar with how black folk got their religion. Indeed, as a conscious black man who has studied the ins & outs of our “shit-uation” here in America I cannot subscribe to a religion that was heaped upon my people by European…See More
