Blog Post ★ (Financial Struggles of an Artist: The Creator of the Walking Dead Explains)

As an entertainer or artist, we have difficult choices to make!  There's the beauty of being creative and chasing a dream.  But there's also the harsh reality of MONEY, or lack thereof.  Many of us quit our day jobs...in order to pursue our passions full time.  Thereby, leaving us in the "poor house" or unfavorable lifestyles.  Just think about it!  That "9 to 5" gives you financial stability, but it also hinders the growth of your craft.  So you quit (which is a great move).  But what happens when your PASSION...doesn't produce the money you need for survival?  What happens when it takes YEARS for you to receive any monetary value or recognition for your efforts?  Recently, I watched a video that gave me insight on this matter.  It's an interview with The Walking Dead's creator, Robert Kirkman.  At this point in his career, Kirkman is rich, with an estimated net worth of $20 million!  Yet and still, the comic book creator recounts those initial rough years...







This interview details the "artist struggle!"  Being dead broke, engrossed in debt, and second-guessing your life goals.  It all goes to show you... no one is above the painstaking commitment of artistry!  If you want to follow your ambitions, you MUST sacrifice something!  Maintain your faith...and keep the belief that everything will work out (even if it looks bleak). Keep creating, keep writing, keep believing!  BECAUSE YOUR $20 MILLION IS CLOSER THAN YOU THINK!!!

Blog Post ★ (Only One Black Comedian At A Time)



In the year of 2015, who would be considered the funniest black person in America? A vast majority of people would exclaim… “Kevin Hart!”  Kevin has been the golden black comic since 2010, with the release of several films, stand-up tours, and tv shows.  But we don’t include other African American comedians alongside him, such as Deon Cole, Hannibal Burress, Jerrod Carmichael, and Dandrell Scott (yea, I threw myself in there…so what?).  Why?  Because Hollywood chooses one "colored" comic at a time!  Before Hart, there was Katt Williams (who exploded in the mid-2000s but hindered his own success due to drug use).  Before Katt, there was Dave Chappelle (who stepped away from comedy and the politics of Hollywood).  The list continues from there, where every decade seemed to have their "golden negro."  

Kevin Hart, the funniest black man in the 2010s.

However, this is never the case with Caucasian joke tellers!  America doesn’t pick one white guy and states, “This is our chosen one for the next few years!”  Think of the 1980s.  Ask someone who was the BLACK comical genius of that decade, and they would say, “Eddie Murphy!”  Ask someone who was the WHITE comical genius of that decade, and the list grows. “Jerry Seinfeld, Sam Kinison, Roseanne Barr, Richard Lewis, Ellen DeGeneres.”   

Jerry Seinfeld, one of the pioneers of the 1980's comedy explosion.

To understand this “hand-picked” acclaim, you have to go back to the civil rights movement of comedy.  Before the introduction of television, several comedians performed in bars, lounges, and after-hour spots.  But late night TV changed the game, where funny performers made it big from network exposure.  And the first black man to be crowned, “America’s Funniest Black Person,” was Bill Cosby.  People dislike Cosby now (due to sexual assaults and allegations), but he could do no wrong in the 1960s.  He was a favorite on The Tonight Show, had a lucrative deal with Warner Bros. Records, and starred in the weekly TV Show, “I Spy.”  Sure you had other successful people cracking jokes, like Dick Gregory and Flip Wilson.  But Bill received much more attention and love from the mass public!  Consequently, this started a trend in Hollywood, and made people of color battle each other.  All for the hopes of having solo fame and recognition.   


Bill Cosby, the first black comedian to receive mass appeal.

So, who will take the crown once the reign of Kevin Hart is over?  Honestly, I hope no one does! I would love to see a group of black comedians take Hollywood by storm.  Thus, making it hard for the public to choose one king.  I reminisce on the days of Def Comedy Jam…where there was so much talent, you couldn’t pinpoint who was the best.  Individually, you can laugh or root for any entertainer you choose.  But speaking to the entertainment industry, I say this… “There’s more than one black person on the field.  And each of us can hit a homerun, so stop allowing just one person to take a swing.”  Bad analogy, I know!  But you get the point.

Blog Post ★ (Top 5 Foods To Eat When You're Broke As Hell)



Everybody’s been broke before!  And I know all about poverty…just look at my mixtape, “Broke and Still Telling Jokes.”  Now, your ass might be broke for different reasons. Maybe you spent too much money at the strip club…on some chick who smell like ass and basement stairs.  Maybe you got fired from your job, because you showed up drunk.  But you worked at a sobriety clinic.  Whatever the case, I’m going to show you how to eat for a week on a $10 budget.  I present to you “The Top 5 Foods To Eat When You’re Broke As Hell


#5 - PANCAKES
 


Aunt Jemima been hooking niggas up for years!  If you look at a pancake box closely, it’s got poverty written all over that b!tch.  I think it’s one of the main ingredients.  But this is a great way to stay full.  Just add water and you can eat them all day.  Some people like to get fancy and add chocolate chips or bacon into the mix.  I say…if you got money for extra ingredients, then your ass really ain’t poor. It’s a luxury to put syrup on them motherf*ckas!



#4 - OATMEAL



I call it oatmeal, but white people call it porridge.  The same stuff Goldilocks was eating in that old fairy tale.  That’s why the three bears were mad. Because they’re broke as f*ck, and you eating all the damn oatmeal.  Anyway, oatmeal will stick to your bones and quench your hunger.  Plus, it has lots of health benefits such as reducing heart disease and cholesterol.  So you don’t have to explain your financial woes. Just say, “I’m getting oatmeal because I wanna stay healthy!  Do you mind, b!tch?



#3 – TACOS



God bless those Latinos!  They must’ve known I only had $20 left, and created a cheap meal for me.  Just get some ground beef, taco shells, cheese, lettuce, and sauce.  You can make them in large amounts, so they’re great for feeding families.  If someone invites you over for dinner, and they’re cooking tacos…just know they’re in DEBT!  They probably just paid off student loans, child support, or rent.  My nickname for tacos is “THIS IS ALL I CAN AFFORD” meal.



#2 – SANDWICHES



The possibilities are endless!  You can make all types of sandwiches!  My favorite is BLT (Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato).  But sometimes I can’t afford the B, the L, or the T.  So I’m stuck eating an OTB sandwich (Only The Bread).  Whoever created a loaf of bread was a frugal genius!  Bread can also show you how desperate you are.  If you eat the booty end (which is the end pieces of a loaf), then your ass is “third world country” poor!  No one eats the booty end…unless they’re on the brink of homelessness. 



#1 – RAMEN NOODLES



We’re finally here!  It was hard to think of the number one food item for broke people. Some may say spaghetti, but I had to go with ramen noodles!  Every college student will agree with my decision.  When you remove it from the packaging, the noodles look like plastic.  Honestly, I don’t know what this sh!t is made from.  But put it in some boiling water, and it becomes dinner!  You can get it for 30 cents or cheaper. My mom was so poor, she couldn’t afford the noodles.  She just gave us the mix sauce. I’ve seen people put sliced hot dogs or chicken into the noodles.  Others will turn it into a full meal…with corn bread and cabbage.  To those people, I say… “You’re doing too much!  Sit your broke ass down!
