Washington Post Trashes Howard Universities Yardfest



Mention the name Howard University, and “world-famous homecoming” probably comes to mind before “world-class studies.” So it was especially disappointing to see a rowdy crowd tarnish the school’s signature achievement by crashing the annual Yardfest hip-hop show.

Fest fans were plenty upset that Juicy J didn’t get to perform the Three 6 Mafia’s Oscar-winning song, “It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp.” Migos didn’t get to do their breakout rap, either.

And they call Howard the “mecca” of historically black colleges and universities? Do they think that students make a pilgrimage there to pray? Or do they come to preen and party? Let’s be real.

Yardfest is not just some campus concert. It is a rite of passage for up-and-coming rap talent, an occasion for burnishing black culture, a time for rekindling artistic fires and passions by a new generation of black poets.

Kanye West: “Kim Kardashian is More Influential Than Michelle Obama”

93.9 WKYS



Well, Kanye speaks again. 

Reports E! News:

It’s not exactly a surprise that Kanye West is Kim Kardashian’s biggest fan. The 36-year-old musician sang his fiancée’s praises during an On Air With Ryan Seacrest radio interview on Tuesday, Oct. 29. In fact, he’s lobbying to get the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star her first Vogue cover. “There’s no way Kim Kardashian shouldn’t be on the cover of Vogue. She’s like the most intriguing woman right now. She’s got Barbara Walters calling her like everyday,” he said, noting that reality stars have often been overlooked by mainstream fashion magazines. “And collectively, we’re the most influential with clothing. No one is looking at what [Barack Obama] is wearing. Michelle Obama cannot Instagram a [bikini] pic like what my girl Instagrammed the other day.”

He wasn’t serious.
