The New Marriage Of NASCAR & Hip-Hop?

By | 25 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=164509"> The closest I've seen Black folks get to car racing is when everybody wore those god-awful Jeff Hamilton jackets, now relics from a sad sad time in urban fashion history. "Hardly anyone associates stock cars with musical sensations such as Lil Wayne and Gucci Mane. But NASCAR, a rival of the Indy 500 for fan dollars, is trying to bridge the countrified world of race tracks and the urban aura of hip-hop. "Music chronicler Vibe magazine is slapping its logo on rookie driver Darrell Wallace Jr.'s race car and promising extensive editorial coverage in support of NASCAR's Drive for Diversity program. Vibe is working with Wallace's race team, Revolution Racing. Team drivers were chosen in a tryout camp catering to women and minorities." <a href="http://www.indystar.com/article/20110123/BUSINESS/101230349/1003/BUSINESS/Watercooler-NASCAR-driving-hard-hip-hop-fans">[Indy Star]</a> There's no way I'd watch a race.

The Morehouse Dilemma

By | 65 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2009/10/all-mens-morehouse-college-bans-cross-dressing"> Life is all about addressing issues. Mississippi has a history of teaching abstinence instead of safe sex practices as if kids aren't going to actually have sex until they're married. This is one of the reasons the state perpetually has the highest teenage pregnancy rate in the country. There's a failure to address the real issue: teenager hormones trump all have put the state in the situation it's in. A couple of days ago, <a href="http://www.vibe.com/content/mean-girls-morehouse">Vibe.com posted a feature that focuses on the homosexual community in Morehouse</a>, causing a hell of a firestorm.

<a href="http://www.vibe.com/content/full-clip-raekwon-breaks-down-wuchef-catalogue"> When considering the best qualifying member of the Wu-Tang Clan to give a thorough analysis of every project they've conceived, the RZA easily bests his brothers, seeing that he oversaw each compilation as a general and executive producer. Seeing that <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/raekwon">Raekwon</a> has adopted the role of the Clan patriarch as of late, his input is highly valued in 2010.
