Fashawn delivers his most melodic project so far with Champagne & Styrofoam Cups. It goes down smooth just like title suggests.

In this day of rampant cynicism it feels good to know that there are people who believe that they can make a difference and then really do something about it. I’m honored to know one of those people, his name is Jordan Wagner and he’s the executive director of Generosity Water. Him and his team are dedicated to fixing the clean water crisis around the world. Limited access to clean drinking water, insufficient sanitation and poor hygiene kills more people than wars, famine and AIDS combined, an estimated 3.6 million annually.
Each year Generosity Water throws a fundraising event called The Night of Generosity and I’ve made a point of donating at it for clean water wells to be built in my fathers homeland of Haiti. What’s great about the way Generosity Water works is that they believe in complete accountability and transparency about where donated money goes. This video is a prime example of that.
It’s so incredibly fulfilling to be able to see the well I funded and to see the community who will have clean water because of it. I traveled to Haiti earlier this year and I was reminded of how amazing and deserving Haitians really are. Please check out the Generosity Water website to see how you can make a difference too.
After being on the set of this video I’m not surprised it turned out as good as it did. It’s the kind of imagery that triggers the imagination and makes you consider the duality in all of us. When you’re done watching it check out the episode of The Q Side where we take you behind the scenes with Janina to see what went into making it and hear the moving story behind the song.
Barack Obama being re-elected as the POTUS is obviously something to celebrate (as you can see in the picture above, I definitely got some of that in). I got a bit nervous over the course of the campaign about whether the outcome would be as favorable. Mitt Romney wasn’t a push over and the frustrations felt by a lot of Americans can’t be underestimated. Thankfully, America got it right and now Barack has 4 more years to fulfill his promises. Personally, I’m looking at the next 4 years of my life as an opportunity to exemplify everything I want to see in Barack. How are you planning to step up and be the change you want to see?
Heard this gem on Broke Mogul and it’s been on repeat since.
Kendrick tweeted out his appreciation about the support for his album good kid, m.A.A.d city which sold 241,000 copies in it’s first week, landing him in 2nd on the Billboard chart behind Taylor Swift. What better way to celebrate than by recording this song with J. Cole and Canei Finch on the beat then sharing it with us.
Great performance of the single from their new album Beacon which is out now!
