Anti-thot Anthem: Who wouldn’t want SZA for “The Weekend”?

Lately, I’ve been having a major issue with people categorizing SZA as a “thot” or advocating for the  “thot lifestyle”. Thot strange word, right? I know some of my readers probably have peculiar expressions on their faces,  wondering what in the hell does that mean? Well my friends, this slanged terminology simply means Hoe or let…

Humanity rises above all

09/11 On a day like this it seems appropriate to write about, discuss, show or share Sympathy.  Which ever medium you choose, it’s still a credible act.

Throughout my entire life, I don’t think I’ve ever had a more infuriating love/hate relationship similar to the one I have with you.  For years I’ve tended to your needs, by helping you get rid of the excess stress and damage when needed. Mainly because I thought this would be the new, fresh start you…
