WHAT WOULD TUPAC SHAKUR HAVE BEEN LIKE HAD HE LIVED?

Honesty is the best policy. The policy is in the beat if you dig that, only it’s not so clear cut. That’s the thing about rap music; you’ve always got to learn to read between the lines. You’ve got to literally mine your way through all the X-rated language, the violence and the sexual innuendos to get to appreciate the truth of the overriding message. And I’m going to be as honest as possible with you today. It may also seem obvious but there’s a great deal many things that me and Tupac Shakur do not have in common. Continue Reading

WINSTON CHURCHILL KNEW A LOT OF THINGS THAT WE DIDN’T

Horror of all horrors, many guys around the world reading this might be wondering; who on earth is this guy. Not Winston Churchill, but the man about to pen some words explaining to the world why the great English statesman is one of those men who continues to inspire him.

I saw a similar trend developing as was the case with the previous Democrat president Bill Clinton. Only this guy’s words were not minced nor were they spoken with a forked tongue. Continue Reading

NELSON MANDELA – FROM FREEDOM FIGHTER TO WORLD STATESMAN

“Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.”

No, Nelson Mandela did not utter that famous quote. But among the many inspirational quotes he has uttered throughout his long and historic life, he may as well have. The famous quote uttered by the slain US President, John F Kennedy, is something Mandela took to heart. In today’s era of tweets and social media storms in which so many guys are so fond of telling others what to do and what they think of what we’re doing, I thought now would be a great time to step in and invite you to be a great man as well. As they say, actions speak louder than words. Continue Reading
