Why Food Stuff Exportation The New Goldmine??? There is nothing that can stop a man that understand the beauty of starting something he has passion for.

Listen, young man or woman! Will you rather study history/sociology/whatever, or enroll in a promising program, say, computer science, which guarantees you a good pay (most importantly, self-sustenance) – think again? If you can’t train yourself up to a PhD level in the above-cited fields, you are better off with a diploma in computer science than a bachelor of arts in any of the above-cited fields. Is it cool to be able to write/research/talk about Abraham Lincoln/Awolowo? Yes, but it takes years of training before you can become a well-respected social scientist/historians. On the other hand, if you are a…

1. Pusha T – Daytona A flawless album. Helmed by Kanye’s production, everything was just perfect. Lyrics, delivery, punchlines and birthing one of the coldest beefs of 2018 against Drake (not that Eminem vs. MGK nonesense), Pusha outdid himself. This is what pristine hiphop in its purest form should sound like. The Grammy nom is an icing and I hope he gets it, but we all know how the Grammy’s work. 2. Saba – Care For Me There’s something good about Chicago and the way it gives us unforgettable musicians from Common, Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, Chance The Rapper, Vic…

1. Nas – NASIR! Nas album was a bit on the disappointing side. Kanye’s production was exceptional, but at times, stifling. While tracks like “Everything” and “Adam & Eve” are excellent, others like Simple Things, Cops Shot The Kids, production just doesn’t suit the verses. Nas rhymes are okay but then I expected a better subject matter. I don’t expect a 40 year old man telling me about how he is still owed for 89 fixes and *itches when allegations of domestic violence are hanging around his neck. Though he later addressed the allegations off-record, it was a bit late.…
