Brandon Young “Done Fi Dem” feat. Messiah. #Hip-Hop. HBCU Alum

This video deserves replay by hip-hop heads. In the vein of greats like Brand Nubian, Brandon Young and crew skillfully find the balance of honesty and entertaining with “Done Fi Dem.” The visuals communicate the feel of the song with no gratuitous imagery. This is a modern-day throw back to a greater era of hip hop. Well done. Oh yeah, he’s a HBCU Alum too.

Tour de Brooklyn – Brooklyn Bike Tour

It was a great day with friends. Big up Jaimi, Kamal, Akil, and Chris Fitness. Kamal did his Superman routine and rode all the way back to Harlem. Thanks to Ed Rice for being so inspirational running his first marathon. It’s good to have so many amazing people just one phone call or email message away.
