How can we tackle the idea behind ISIL?

Well if it isn't one thing it's another. If it isn't Ebola, it ISIL. Recently blogger Imran Khan wrote a blog in which he proposed a possible solution to ISIL

and all other present and potential future terrorist organizations. In he proposed the idea of fighting ISIL, which is an idea/concept, with concepts. He also

put forth theoretical causes of terrorism. Ideas both his own and others gotten through the course of interviews he conducted with people from some of the

trouble areas of the middle east. The link to Imran Khan's blog and the article is below. It definitely makes for interesting reading.

Charles Barkley Slams ‘Unintelligent,’ ‘Brainwashed’ Black People for Holding Successful Ones Back

Charles Barkley Slams ‘Unintelligent,’ ‘Brainwashed’ Black People for Holding Successful Ones Back

Sir Charles Barkley recently revealed a long held unspoken truth, in his opinion, about Black people in a recent interview with Anthony Garano of 914 WIP

Philly Radio. He said that he believes Blacks in America will never succeed, because of the 'crab in a bucket' mentality that many unsuccessful (less

industrious) Blacks have, which some successful Blacks have succumb in one way or another.

For instance, one example he cited was the fact that some smart African American children, who do well in school, are told by their fellow classmates who

aren't doing as well that they are 'being white, because they get good grades. Another example he provided was they way in which some Black professional

athletes go broke, despite earning millions, because of the large entourages they keep out of guilt put upon them by the less industrious Blacks among their

family and friends. To hear actual audio of Sir Charles' interview click on the link provided below.

Troy Ave exposed to have Allegedly Sent Goons at iLoveMakonnen!

Troy Ave exposed to have Allegedly Sent Goons at iLoveMakonnen!

Rap artist iLoveMakonnen was performing in NYC and while on stage a fan reached up as though he wanted to give iLoveMakonnen a handshake. But what the man was actually doing was attempting to lure iLoveMakonnen close enough to the edge of the stage to pull him off of it, so that he could assault him. This is exactly what occurred, and allegedly the man who assaulted iLoveMakonnen was a goon and known associate of Troy Ave.

Apparently this whole incident spawned from comments iLoveMakonnen made concerning Troy Ave's remix of iLoveMakonnen's hit song "Tuesday ft. Drake".

Video (at 2:52 min approx) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m22lvlZ-2ng

Editorial; Not saying it was right, but things are different for a non celeb than it is for a person who is famous, even 'snap famous'. In business, and rap music is no exception, your reputation is what your're really making money off of at that point. An artist's reputation affects and determines the kind of future lucrative opportunities (within and without the music industry) that they can get or would be invited to take part in. Not to mention the equity built up with their fans and the general public, which can also determine: turnouts at their concerts, any record sales, their fashions etc.

So long story short, an attack against an artist's reputation, even a semi-pro 'snap famous' artist, can cost that artist big dollars in the long run. One final thing to consider is, the fact that that goon and others like him, in the life of rap artists, also eat off of that artist's reputation as well. 26000!

Tyga Responds to Drake with New Song Sneak Dissing Him.

Apparently, there is a schism that has formed within the YMCMB camp as of late. Rap artist Tyga has written a diss track on his label mate Drake, in response to a perceived diss against him in one of Drizzy's songs. Could this be the end of an empire? You be the judge. A link to Tyga's diss track ('Make It Work') on Drake is provided below.
