Jigga Man


The Greatest

The Paisley One

Marvin, Marvin!

PS:How BIG is the party going to be if Obama actually wins the House?

-Mr. Muhammad


  1. That is a nice picture of Barack… I wish they had a better pic of Marvin Gaye…

    What about Malcolm X? Farrakhan?

    Don Cheadle was on the list too.. and I definitely agree with that!:-)

    Was Mos Def apart of this list? I can’t remember…

  2. IMO, Farrakhan ain’t cool. He dissed Malcolm when the Nation had it in for him, before they offed him. But I definitely agree with Bro. Malcolm being on the list.

    Miles. I mean you can’t have a list of cool brothers without including Miles Davis!

  3. 2 words
    Don Cornelius of Soul Train. That is a cool cat
    also Morgan Freeman is pretty cool.
    as far as cool women? Black women are to fiery to consider them cool. I would like to hear what black woman/women are cool Kathleen. Wait I just thought of someone. Erykah Badu.

  4. Interesting.. I was driving and I thought about starting a thread about it… I’ll put it up now…

  5. “IMO, Farrakhan ain’t cool. He dissed Malcolm when the Nation had it in for him, before they offed him.”

    – called over two million black men to recommit to themselves, their families, their women and their communities on a Monday..
    – helped form truces between gangs
    – helped changed the direction and course of conscious rap
    – fought and provided protection for Bro.Jesse when the Secret Service refused for free
    – negotiated for the freedom of American hostages held in Iran
    – successfully helped to work to restore the image of the American Black Man throughout the world.. through talks with other controversial African leaders
    – helped to resurrect the political career of one of our black Mayors after he was completely written off.. Marion Barry..

    among a whole host of other things…..

    I just think that’s pretty cool…
