Not Hiding In Hip-Hop: Gay & Lesbian Rappers…“Out” and “Proud!”

Not Hiding In Hip-Hop: Gay & Lesbian Rappers…“Out” and “Proud!” By Khalil Amani

Step Your Shoe Game Up!

Step Your Shoe Game Up! By Khalil Amani



So I was in Miami this past weekend (thus, the lack of blogs written) and was livin’ li vida loca. I ate some authentic Cuban food—black beans & rice, plantain chips, Red Snapper and some other good stuff. I also went to this fabulous club called “M-1”, which was crazy-stupid-hyped! Thanks to my best friend David, whose nephew is an international model, who models for the club owner’s company, we got in free and sat in V.I.P.… Continue
