Phlow: Nigeria’s burgeoning emcee/songwriter, Phlow brings her recently released EP, the great Asuai (Vol. 2), to life with a striking new video that takes the viewer through the lives and thoughts of four unique characters.

The EP’s four tracks, which are brilliantly produced by Montreal’s Dr. Mad, lay the groundwork for Phlow to showcase her acting chops as she works through the raw emotions within her lyrics. And it’s all seen through the always-sharp lens of XYZ (for Str8Buttah Productions), who directed the visuals and captured the tone of each track.

Essentially, the video finds Phlow taking on the role of the four narrators on the EP, including naive Stephanie, cynical Asuai, nonchalant Phlow, and her teacher incarnate, the mature Ms. Eyime. And whether you’re familiar with Phlow’s previous work or have had Asuai (Vol. 2) on repeat since September, this is another opportunity to get even more familiar with one of Hip-Hop’s most burgeoning talents.

Check out the visuals, and head over to the digital retailer or streaming platform of your choice to support Asuai Vol. 2, via Str8Buttah Productions.

Lil Jon, King of Crunk, Helps Open up His Second School in Africa

What does Lil Jon, LeBron James, and French Montana all have in common? We’ll give you hint…it has nothing to do with music.

After opening the Abomayaw D.A. Kindergarten, Lil Jon returned to open his second school, in the same rural village in eastern Ghana. The project was a part of Pencils for Promise’s ongoing effort to better education. Pencils for Promise is an organization that helps bring quality education to countries like Guatemala, Laos, and Nicaragua and Ghana.

With the help of Jon’s $70,000 donation, Mafi Atitekpo D.A. Primary School has more than 300 children enrolled. In a statement released to AOL, the rapper said, “Last year [October of 2017] I went with my family to open up my first Pencils of Promise school in Ghana, and now to have over 300 kids already enrolled in my second school there is incredible!” He goes on to say, “It’s been really fulfilling to see the impact these schools have made on so many of these children’s and families’ futures.”

The school was opened just one year after he and PoP helped to open the Kindergarten. The King of Crunk revealed that he wanted at least one of the schools to be built in honor of his late mother, Carrie M. Smith.

“Lil Jon is one of our most loyal and passionate celebrity supporters, from his work in the field to donating his birthday to make two schools a reality, he continues to impact education needs for those in rural communities,” said Tanya Ramos, CEO of PoP.

You Gotta be Shittin’ Me? Certain Underwear Lead to Rape?

Published

on

Women are pissed off after a rape victim is blamed for her rape. Earlier this month, Irish Twitter users bombarded Twitter with pictures of women’s underwear, in protest of an Irish lawyer who victim blamed a 17-year-old girl. The incident, involving a 27-year-old man, occurred in Cork, Ireland. The accused claims that the act was consensual.

“You have to look at the way she was dressed. She was wearing a thong with a lace front,” said the 27-year-old man’s defense lawyer, Elizabeth O’Connell, in her closing arguments. Shortly after, the man was found not guilty of the charges.

The verdict has led to widespread protest. Ruth Coppinger, an Irish MP, even held up a pair of thongs while in parliament. She’s on record saying, “It might seem embarrassing to show a pair of thongs here… how do you think a rape victim or a woman feels at the incongruous setting of her underwear being shown in a court?”

All up and down Twitter’s timeline, women flashed panties, displaying all different materials, colors, shapes and designs. Their hashtags used were #ThisIsNotConsent and #MeToo. Protests even made it’s way to the streets. Women filled the walkways outside a courthouse in Cork, where the trial took place. There was an estimate of at least 200 women in attendance.

See the photos below.

More protests are scheduled for Friday, in Waterford in the south-east.
