[video] Swizz Beatz Talks Attending Harvard Business School

Vlad TV links with the Monsta to talk about his ongoing experience in Harvard.

Swizz Beatz opens up about his decision to take a break from music so he could go to Harvard University Business School. He explains that after having a hand in changing billion dollar companies, it was time to go to college and learn the real language of business.
He admits that his classmates didn’t recognize him as an artist until his wife, Alicia Keys, came in one day toward the end of class. Swizz adds that he was already cool with everyone in his class, so he wasn’t treated any differently.

People seem to be really freaked out by this. But this breaks down to dollars and sense, because they are hard at work to bring the cost down of gas which they are burning through quicker than a lit match to a piece of paper.

First off, these are all high-concept ideas; no airline is about to phase out its expensive window-lined 757s anytime soon.

Hope you’re not too attached to looking out the windows when you fly—the designers of tomorrow’s airplanes seem intent on getting rid of them. A Paris design firm recently made waves when it released its concept for a sleek, solar paneled, windowless passenger jet. Before that, Airbus proposed eschewing windows and building its cabins out of transparent polymers. Now, the Center for Process Innovation has floated its own windowless plane concept, and it’s attracting plenty of attention, too.

So, because an arbitrary rule someone made up says three makes a trend, I guess we have to seriously consider the prospect that flying in the future won’t include plexiglass portals to the outside sky.

Open Letter Calls Out KANYE WEST for IGNORING Ferguson

Screen Shot 2014-10-28 at 10.19.57 AM

This lady’s letter was very heartfelt and though she calls out Kanye for being MIA when it comes to the important issues going on in Ferguson and across the country, to which even our President has had to discuss on occasion, she did it with intelligence love and with no judgement. Sadly Ye’ seems to be more concerned with the worship of Kim K. and making sure she is viewed as a fashion icon, his own problems behind the scenes within the lily white fashion industry, and being viewed as a genius than the plight  of the black community. Hopefully his silence is just temporary and he makes some strong statements in his new music releasing sometime soon.

Dear ‘Ye,

You have spent much of your career defying naysayers and the standards people have set for you. You refused to be intimidated by guys on the South Side of Chicago for your creativity. You broke free of being only a producer when you proved Jay Z wrong and became one of the biggest names in rap music. When music executives tried to control the content of your music, you released the now-infamous “Jesus Walks.” When Nike would not give you creative control over Yeezys, you took a deal with Adidas instead.

You are, by definition, defiant. And I love that about you.

[video] Dr. Khalid Muhammad – How 2 Deal With Police [Must Watch]

Here is an alternative method for dealing with the police instead of these Facebook rants and posts I have seen the last few months trying to convince the urban community to physically fight back against the police dept ,which ultimately will result in more black lives lost and at what reward? You have to outsmart your enemy and the police dept. is prepared and wants us to fight them physically in the street, which will just give them even more excuses to shed the blood of the people. Fight your enemy psychologically and not with emotions.
