“The Keyboard is Mightier than the Gun!”

“The Keyboard is Mightier than the Gun!”

By Khalil Amani

 

In 1839, Englishman Edward Bulwer-Lytton wrote a play entitled “Richelieu; Or the Conspiracy” where he coined the phrase, “The pen is mightier than the sword.” No truer words have ever been spoken! Why is “the pen mightier than the sword?” Well just think…

“I Ain’t Tupac! I’m the New ‘Pac!”—

“I Ain’t Tupac! I’m the New ‘Pac!”—Lil Wayne

By Khalil Amani

 

Tupac was no lyrical assassin. Tupac was no “MC.” I can name twenty (20) rappers that would shit on Tupac’s rhyme-scheme—Nas, Biggie, Jay-Z, Big Pun, Rakim, LL Cool J, MC Lyte, Lauryn Hill, Canibus, Eminem, Twista, JadaKiss, Busta Rhymes, Chuck D, KRS One, Andre 3000, Big…

Lil Wayne: NBA’s #1 Groupie!

Lil Wayne: NBA’s #1 Groupie!

By Khalil Amani

 

When that cracker on the airplane slapped that black baby across the face and told his mama to, “Shut that nigger baby up!”—he was just being himself! He would say, “Hey! I am who I am!”

 

As a corporate executive, he was used to telling employees to go fuck…

God’s UFO: The Biblical Evidence!

God’s UFO: The Biblical Evidence!

By Khalil Amani

 

If you were thrust 3,000 years into the future could you name the things that you saw? Of course not! Your vocabulary would be limited to your 21st century usage of the English language. We have seen airplanes and understand that humans have invented flying aircraft, but imagine had you lived…

Keep the Kilt! Damn the Demagogue! (Answering Lord Jamar)

Keep the Kilt! Damn the Demagogue! (Answering Lord Jamar)

By Khalil Amani

 

Confession! I bought a black Scottish kilt in 2004. That shit was baaaad! It was pleated all the way around with a over-sized silver bobbie-pin and a leather belt attached to it. I never wore it though. Ended up giving it to this white dude who was into that Gothic…

Jezebel: The First Ride-or-Die Chick!

By Khalil Amani



Forget all that “jazziebelle” (Shout-out to you ma!) stuff you’ve read or heard in church about the Old Testament character named Jezebel! Since time immemorial, her name has become synonymous with “whore,” “slut,” and any word demeaning women.…

DJ Envy: You’z a Condescending Bitch!

By Khalil Amani

 

As “gay hip-hop’s” self-professed “straight advocate” and homophobe killa, I’ve been following transgender singer Sidney Starr ever since she came on the scene going back to “Chingy-gate.” I’ve watched her on Worldstarhiphop.com and seen her recant any sexual relationship with Chingy or…
