The idea formulated from my personal journey within revolutionary work. If you know me then you know I switch it up often.. to a certain extent I’m unpredictable. I’m this way only because I don’t like the feeling of being boxed in. I know there are plenty of bad ass black girls just like me. I’m speaking of those girls who are in love with who they are and the culture of being black. Those who have causal “black lives matter conversations” but still have a cocktail and listen to Future. The girls who are socially aware but aren’t overly consumed (Even if you are I’m talking about you too!). The happy medium of turnt and woke. I want to shine light on women similar to me.. those girls who love fashion, love music, love knowledge, and enjoy a good time. Those girls who are not afraid of doing their own thing but do their thing in the essence of being fully aware of their crown. Those girls who get in their glo and don’t shy away from what makes them unique. I crown these girls “bad ass black girls.”
In society it’s such a big stigma on who we should be, what we should be doing, what we should eat lol.. etc. It’s like now a days we all attempt to fit into a mold when we know damn well we are unmoldable! I’m telling you bad ass black girl this is for you. I’m asking that you step front and center and join a community of other bad asses who are saying, “Hey! This is me! Love it? Hate it? Don’t matter! I am here to shake somethings up and have fun while doing it!” This is our year to bask in the greatness of what may not be the status quo but it’s our own personal status. Trust me somebody appreciates it and we are about to make it cool to be yourself again.
So I’m saying all of this to say come join me and some other bad ass black girls. I’m running this campaign all year long. I want you to submit your stories, your questions, your friends, and who you think should be featured as a #badassblackgirl to email@example.com. The takeover starts NOW!
They couldn’t stand us in 2016 with the #blackgirlmagic.. they are going sit down for us now because the #badassblackgirls are about to introduce themselves and inspire! Please submit your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. I am honored to feature you!

From start to finish this track is one for “cuffing season”. The sonic sound of the guitar and electric tones glide under Vonte’s lyrics while paying homage to the 90’s classic “Freakin You” by Jodeci. Producer Gold Haze captures the essence of a real “slow jam” and catches the listener off guard with the intense sound that leads to immense pleasure. Prepping for his upcoming mixtape ‘NIGGA! Vonte emphasizes a strong message through his music while gaining the hearts of the ladies with this single. Follow him on social media @Vontebomaye to keep up to date with all of his current moves.
This morning Savage Squad Records CEO and former GBE affiliate, Fredo Santana died at the tender age of 27 years old. Reports state the cause of death was due to kidney failure. Today the city of Chicago and those abroad mourn the loss of a staple to the drill music scene.
Current events show how detrimental drug use has been to some of Hip-Hop’s younger stars. Back in 2015, the culture took a major lost when ASAP Yams at the age of 26 was reported dead due to a drug overdose. It was said that he possibly died due to a mixture of codeine and Xanax. As time fast forwards, rapper Lil Peep at age 21 was reported dead in November 2017, due to a Xanax overdose.
Addiction to prescription drugs are at an all time high. The addiction comes with a heavy price… your life. It’s truly upsetting to witness as it’s taking the young away before they truly are able to make their mark.
Luckily, the addiction crisis isn’t going unnoticed. Some rappers have vowed to quit cold turkey to ensure their survival. California rapper Hell Gang Mozzy has decided to kick the cup and bring awareness to the epidemic.
The greatest hope is that more artist will follow the way of those like Mozzy. It’s understood that this isn’t a easy battle. But, health is wealth and you have to be here in order to count it!
For those of you who maybe dealing with addiction take advantage of the drug abuse hotlines 1-877-733-2138 so that you can receive the proper help you need.
With great sorrow and a sadden heart we here at KMThinks.com sends prayers and condolences to the family and friends of Fredo Santana. The city cries for you today.
Wait a minute DJ Honorz! Is that you SD!?
DJ Honorz just dropped his first installation of 2018 “Pawnshop” featuring SD. Fans have been waiting for two years to hear new music from the former GBE affiliate. Honorz has worked his magic and put together a solid 5-song EP that features remixes to some of your favorite songs. On each track SD bodies the instrumental and lays down that flavor that everybody has been missing. Although its not what the fans are expecting (LAOS5), it is something that will hold you over until the next release! Pawnshop is available now for streaming and download now on Spinrilla!

Your early 20’s are nothing short of weary. We all yearn to adult but the truth is that we don’t really understand what that means. You’re taught about puberty and even a little about your teenage years. But, nobody gives you the scoop on how dramatic your 20’s truly are. Here I am 25 years young and I feel like I’ve experienced a midlife crisis every two years from the time that my 20th birthday passed. It’s been a crazy 5 years, to say the least. You go through so many levels of trials and triumphs. You think that you have everything thing figured out and then BOOM! here comes a curve ball completely placing you off your square. It makes you feel like you have to start all over and scratch the plan you thought you had figured out. This alone sometimes makes you feel at your worse but you know that you have to keep going. Easier said than done but honestly starting over is sometimes needed. We all go through different things but we all have something in common… We’re trying to stay afloat. A lot of the strides we take go unnoticed and as much as we don’t want to admit it… we care. I’ve learned that the feeling of wanting to be appreciated is natural. It’s human instinct to want to feel appreciated and noticed; especially when it comes to the pivot points in your life.
Your 20’s don’t give you a break, though. They don’t discriminate. You could be sitting somewhere with your master’s degree, great job, and a beautiful living space but I’m sure it’s something that you just don’t feel like is clicking for you. You could be sitting with no degree, plenty of talent, and traveling but I’m still sure it’s something that’s in the way. No matter your situation, I know that you’re applying a lot of pressure to yourself. You may be applying so much pressure that you’re lowkey stagnate. You’re over thinking and not much is getting accomplished at this point. It’s ok to admit it… you aren’t the only one. Aside from societies standards, we set an even higher standard for ourselves and things have gotten crazy.
The visions we’ve created for ourselves didn’t include curves and nobody warned us. We planned a straightforward road but the way life works we now know how much of a joke that is. No matter what, we’re still pushing to bring these visions to fruition.
The key is to remain consistent and not become discouraged. It’s bittersweet that nobody truly told us what was to come. But, I’ve come to believe that this is a journey you have to figure out for yourself. There’s no wrong way to go as long as you’re moving and setting goals. You hinder yourself when you become too comfortable or even attempt to think that giving up is an option. Listen! Giving up is not an option. All of the shxt we’re going through is molding us into the most amazing human beings that ever walked this earth. We have so much to accomplish and honestly do me a favor right now….
I N H A L E…. h o l d it… EXHALE.
Repeat these words, “I got this! I am in control! The only option is up!” Repeat it twice if you have too.
We’ve accomplished so much believe it or not. We will accomplish it all as long as we pick ourselves up and be the encouragement to each other that we truly need. You’re not the only person going through something. We all are going through it and we can overcome the stress together. Our 20’s are throwing a fit but we’re going to get them together and continue to shine! We are in a prime time of our lives.
For every moment that we feel defeated, we are being prepared to be elevated. I like to think of it as going through a tough winter so that you can really learn how to appreciate the sun when it shines. Please believe the sun will shine again! The only difference will be when the sun decides to shine this time we’ll actually appreciate it. We’ll be prepared. So start getting ready for the sun now. Continue pushing until you can’t mutter or type a word. Never give up on yourself and stay on your course. If you have to detour a little bit that’s ok but don’t get lost. Stick with your plan! We’ll all end up where we need to be. As for these rough 20’s; you just have to be like Kevin Hart and say it with your chest: “I GOT THIS!”
