Villainous Supes? Call The Boys| Amazon Prime Original

If you know me, you know how fond I am of super hero content. My latest dish for you comes out of Amazon Prime’s Original show catalog. The recipe used for this latest production is simply delightful. I am talking about their new show created by Erik Kripke, Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, “The Boys”.

Starring Jack Quaid (Huey) and Karl Urban (Billy Butcher)  who form a team of vigilantes who share a common experience of being survivors of collateral damage. Take on Vought, an evil corporation who produces Super Heroes like a talent agency. The show is brilliant with grade A visual effects with a well rounded cast including but not limited to Erin Moriarty (Starlight), Chace Crawford (The Deep), Antony Starr (Home-lander). It appears that the inspiration for the super heroes created in the show are a reflection of the DC Universe. However, the spin off is, what if your favorite super hero abused their powers in the name of fame and fortune? Do you offend or out of fear attend support meetings?  Drama, Dead Pool action comedy and a sprinkle of relative social issues completes this plate. The Boys got it all, go feast on Season 1! Can’t wait for season 2!

Hip Hop Artist Abdullah Only Speaks Positive Messages In His Music

 

Abdullah (born Anthony Sarpy) and is a hip-hop MC and recording artist from the West Side of  Chicago, IL (K-Town to be exact).  He currently resides in the north suburb of Waukegan, IL.  Abdullah is U.S. Army veteran, where he was an Infantry soldier for nearly 9 years and served in 4 deployments overseas (3 in Iraq, and 1 in Afghanistan). He currently has an album out, entitled Black Determination.
Abdullah will release a new album on August 2, 2019 entitled Black Manhood.
Abdullah is also a devoted and dedicated father to his son Malik, as well as a soon-to-be college graduate from DeVry University, with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Information Systems.  Abdullah is a person who is a freedom fighter for Black and oppressed peoples throughout the world.
Abdullah is also an advocate for Black Nationalism, which simply means he cares for owning, controlling and policing the businesses, politics and society of the Black community. Abdullah also cares about the African continent and the development in which our brothers and sisters there should have a hand in, which makes him a staunch supporter of Pan Africanism.
Abdullah believes in educating the Black masses properly on the truth of our history, and how we should apply it to his own existence in bettering black people as a whole. Abdullah values the hip-hop culture and takes it very seriously, and holds himself accountable as to what he says in his music and the impact it may have on people (particularly the young generation).
 Therefore, Abdullah is a positive, thought-provoking lyricist with an enlightened message to represent for the masses; while at the same time, staying true to himself and not becoming a sellout.  Adbullah will use his potential to the fullest, while providing the people with good music to listen to for both their soul and mind.
Info about the album:
The Black manhood album is a testament of brothers coming together, uniting and working for a greater purpose. This album paints Black men in a positive light, by defeating the stereotypes we are bombarded with on a daily basis. This album also touches on interesting topics such as educating Black men in a literal sense, growing as a man in your 30s, domestic violence, protecting our women, developing your spiritual state, the closing of schools, politics, etc. This album highlights the growth of who I am as a 35 year old Black man.
