The coolest thing about me is being a #GirlDad. My two daughters, from the time they were born have given me a purpose that I never imagined. Sharing my love and passions with them, and watching them grow and develop their own individual passions is without question the coolest thing about me. This past week, I was introduced to a dope contribution by fellow member of the Girl Dad squad, Ludacris. The Netflix show “Karma’s World,” was crafted by Ludacris and inspired by his eldest daughter, Karma Bridges

The delicious taste of Rwanda’s specialty coffee has become a popular staple in the world's coffee industry. Its signature fruity flavor has made its way to several American coffee shops and companies like Starbucks and Amazon. However, one company, in particular, sells Rwandan coffee with a much larger vision and heartfelt purpose. Named after Rwanda’s vast and mountainous countryside, Land of a Thousand Hills is an international coffee company with several cafe locations around Atlanta's neighborhoods and metropolitan areas, like Old Fourth Ward, Alpharetta, Midtown, and Roswell. The company takes every dollar a customer spends and uses the money toward an initiative that leaves your heart just as warm as the cup of coffee you order.

I have never been a fan of Western TV shows or movies. My interest was never sparked by the repetitive themes that revolved around a revenge-seeking protagonist, a dirty money bandit, and quick-draw duels at high noon, all playing out to a folk music soundtrack. Even though these elements made Westerns the most booming genre of the 20th century, I never gave it the time of day. This was until I watched the new Netflix movie “The Harder They Fall.” The film dusted off the played-out Western themes and added a tasty flare of Black history and culture to the screen.

Released on Oct. 22, "The Harder They Fall" is a spectacular Black Western co-written by singer-songwriter and director Jeymes Samuel (also known as The Bullitts). The movie features a Black cast of well-known actors/actresses like Regina King as “Trudy Smith,” Idris Elba as “Rufus Buck,” Deon Cole as “Wiley Escoe,” LaKeith Stanfield as “Cherokee Bill,” and Jonathon Majors as protagonist “Nat Love,” whose character is based upon the actual 19th-century cowboy, Nat Love

The 2020 BET Hip Hop Awards brought forth a ton of laughs. The hosts of the 85 South Show, Karlous Miller, DC Young Fly, and Chico Bean showcased their fun-loving style on stage as they hosted the annual ceremony. I haven’t been excited about the BET Awards in quite some time, but when I got the news they were hosting, that changed immediately. 

As expected, the comedy trio did a great job as hosts, and hopefully, they’ll return in the coming years. This was a very symbolic representation of the trajectory that their careers are heading in the right direction. But who exactly are the guys behind one of the most successful tours in comedy right now?
