It's Because I'm Young

Blackness. Jazz. Rap. Politics. History. Religion. When I'm stressed I turn to Coltrane and when I'm angry it's Mingus. James Baldwin is my favorite writer and Yasiin Bey my favorite rapper.  “I am black; I am in total fusion with the world, in sympathetic affinity with the earth, losing my id in the heart of the cosmos -- and the white man, however intelligent he may be, is incapable of understanding Louis Armstrong or songs from the Congo. I am black, not because of a curse, but because my skin has been able to capture all the cosmic effluvia. I am truly a drop of sun under the earth.” - Frantz Fanon



Her Minajesty

Nicki Minaj by Jeff Bark

Styled by Robbie Spencer

I need that chaise and that sweater thing

They soaked gummy bears and pineapples in José Cuevo

I’m confused as to where I’m drunk or just tripping

I’m so special
I’m so special so special so special

Lord Willin was pretty much a perfect album, that coke talk was vicious


—Am I High (feat. Malice)

I never said I was an angel
