At this conference "Selma" Director and Activist Ava Duvernay and legendary emcee Q-tip discuss how lighting has to be adjusted to capture people of a color correctly. Wish it wasn't so short...
Kendrick Lamar has always been low-kay and private about his "love" life. Unlike most celebrities he has never been eager to share who he's laying next to at night. We knew nothing about who Kendrick was dating or dated and most of us were cool with that (especially the ladies, ok especially me.) Wasn't until recently when New York rapper Nitty Scott MC revealed in an interview that she briefly dated the rising Hip-Hop icon that we got a glimpse into the "other" side of Kendrick. However, these days he seems to be entering a new stage in his life and yesterday stealthy revealed on "the Breakfast Club" that he will marry his high school sweetheart and long time girlfriend or as he would say "best friend" Whitney Alford, known to her family as "Whit, Whit. But you won't find much about Ms. Whitney or shall I say Mrs. Duckworth because she is just as low-key as her soon to be husband. Known for being "down to earth and staying to herself" you won't find a social media page, website or even a youtube video on Whitney. It's evident she has made a clear effort to stay off the radar and out of range. (not for long though) However, I did discover Whitney is a singer and actually did some background vocals on Kendrick's latest release "To Pimp a Butterfly's "King Kunta" and "Wesley's Theory". Yahoo celebrity calls her "the luckiest woman alive". I don't know about luckiest, but Kendrick is definetly one of the most humble, loyal, smartest, talented men out here. I wish them the best of luck, but I got a feeling they won't need it. The King has crowned his queen… #CongratzKendrick&Whitney

So glad Kendrick is back. I really haven't had a chance to write my review on the #TPAB yet but I am so proud that he is black and proud. That he represents not only Hip-Hop but Black community as a whole. He knows the sickness that ails the black community… The opening line of "Blacker the Berry" makes it clear he knows...
