NSFW ~ I'm an Aquarius, I love music, singing, and writing. I'm afraid of the future, afraid of being alone and of growing old. I don't know what I'm doing half the time, I don't know who I am.

Ms. Dynamite x Amplify Dot x Lady Leshurr x Lioness - “Neva Soft (RMX)”

Stepping up to the mic with Dynamite for this special remix are Amplify Dot, who recently released her banger of a collaboration with Kano “Semantics” as well as her solid Born Ready mixtape; Birmingham repping Lady Leshurr who almost spits verses in bullet time on her take on Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now”; and South London rhyme animal Lioness whose buzzworthy mixtape Roarness was released last week.

Although Amplify Dot, Lady Leshurr and Lioness are solo artists in their own right, they come together as an earth shattering unit called 367 (a reference to their individual positions on The Grime Report’s 2011 top female MCs list, which was topped by Ms. Dynamite) and the results are outstanding.

*Psst* Also, transgressing masculine/feminine gender roles is no indication of one’s sexuality or gender identity.


Characters voiced by black men get a pretty decent amount of screen time in animated films these days, often being the main sidekick on the hero or heroes’ journey to success, being present virtually every step of the way. Some people would argue that this is a step forward for black…

The “inherent” non attraction to PoC is always, always, always a product of embedded racism. I’ve seen people who say, “I’m just not attracted to ___” and then when they start opening their eyes and realizing, “Holy shit, we do live in a white supremacist world that has completely corrupted by views of darker skinned human beings.” They start to see that they actually are attracted to PoC. You can hold onto being the one exception, but you’d be wrong. Educate yourself and open your fucking mind.

The word turns off a lot of men (insert snarky comment about man-hating feminazis here) — and women. But here’s why black men should be embracing the “f” word.
