From “Untitled (How Does It Feel)” to “Love of My Life (An Ode To Hip-Hop),” the very underrated Raphael Saadiq is behind quite a few classics.
These all seem like songs he’d pen.
now that I read this I can clearly hear him singing them.
Like, and did that FIRST.
I’m done with this whole situation.
Ray Rice should never have an NFL career again.
what is going on
The video footage of Ray Rice knocking out his fiancee was released today. It’s hard because he will get all of the blame because he strong as shit,…
No, no one should lay hands on anyone. But I don’t think what she did was in the same league for multiple reasons.
I don’t know the nature of their relationship, what happened before the hallway, after the hallway, if she beats him every night or not. I can’t speak on that.
But I do know that this man literally plays a physical game where he literally has to train his mind, instincts and reactions in spite of most pain and discomfort.
He is bigger and stronger than her and trained to hit and be hit.
This is a case where he not only overreacted to her hitting him (and yes, he should have measured his reaction to physical violence even if he didn’t “start it”) but didn’t seem panicked, defensive or afraid at all of her. He didn’t seem defensive at all. He responded to a slap by nearly killing her.
Not restraining her.
Not even returning a slap.
By punching her in the face, knocking her clean out.
And not going for medical attention or even picking her up off the floor humanely.
This didn’t look like a fight.
And this is me just reacting to the video and not assuming (though I’d probably be correct) that this is an abusive cycle at his hands that happened to be caught just this once.
Obviously they have a lot of issues in their relationship. But off of this one video, we see them “fight” and this man cold cocked his fiancée into a metal bar and literally knocked her out. Literally.
Whatever physical thing she did to “start” it (UNLEASH is more like it), this man literally punched her until she was not awake. And then dragged her on the floor. Not picked her up. Not made sure she was okay. DRAGGED HER.
Don’t say she deserved that because she slapped him. No one should hit anyone but you can’t look at that video and tell me she was “wrong too” as if it explains or absolves him punching and dragging her.
what is going on
The video footage of Ray Rice knocking out his fiancee was released today. It’s hard because he will get all of the blame because he strong as shit, but she clearly did hit him first, then charge him in the elevator.
I’ve seen the video. Without question, his actions (the sheer force and violence he exhibited) combined with standing over her unconscious body and dragging her nearly bared ass into a hallway…………I have no pity for that man. He did this and received consequences.
Lol how “urban fabulous” of them.
what in the white devil hell
This shit fucked me up first time i saw it.

I was on the subway. It was me alone and there were 3 people sitting across from me. It was perfectly fine, until I noticed that the women in the middle kept staring at me. She wouldn’t stop. Her eyes were wide open and she never stopped to look the other way.
Midway throughout my ride a man came…
I don’t know what’s going on hair wise but get into this face!!!!!
