For summer 2015, VOX Media Cafe interns have already created our summer playlist. It consists of artists from J.Cole to Good Morrow. Through our training week last week, we shared a common interest of relaxation through music. Here are our top five artists — the genre they compose music for and a short synopsis about them […]
J.Cole once said, “History repeats itself, and that’s just how it goes.” Well, as an aspiring fashionista, I’ve always liked to change it to “Fashion repeats itself, and that’s just how it goes.” Feature styles repeating themselves have been inevitable since forever and the same goes for the summer of 2015.
For the summer of 2015, the texture, the look and the love of lace is definitely one of my favorites. In fact, there was lace on my prom dress. In my opinion, there are so many things you can do with lace as a cloth, and its versatility is what makes me love it so much.
Throughout the night, the energy of the room kept increasing. Kyle pounded his bars through the mic, creating a constant hyper tangle of limbs, hair, and feet down in the sand. Kyle became a conductor on stage, throwing up his hands on a chorus and the crowd increased in volume, filling in the words. When he pointed out random fans in the crowd, on command, they let the lyrics flood out of every pore. He made sure we received the most out of him and that he received just as much from us.
So you’ve obviously been in school for a good while now, and if you’ve been attending a public school, or even most private schools, you have experienced the great task of summer reading. Public schools usually start summer reading very early in first or second grade, so you might be used to it.
No one can forget about the Cleveland Cavaliers after falling short to the Warriors in Game 6. Even with LeBron James bringing in 32 points and 18 rebounds on his home court, he could not bring it home alone. After giving himself the title “best player in the world,” he could not lead his team to victory alone. In the post-game press conference, James noted, “There’s no real success if you go out losing.”
As an observant rising senior at KIPP Atlanta Collegiate, there are definitely some things I have learned about high school in general. Through three years without guidance from an older student, I navigated my way through the idea and reality of high school itself.
The selection of poems was written when I was posed the question, “Is there an African-American Dream?” In my literature class, during a discussion about hope, freedom, and dreams, the question stuck out because every one of my peers’ answers were different.
Although his music and productions offend people constantly, I admire the fact that he raps what he wants to rap about, and he produces what he wants to produce with no label director to answer to or a restrictive censoring agent. He is honest with himself and with his fans and I admire that, with everything he produces, he produces it only because he likes it and he thinks it’s good.
I’m very comfortable with driving because I’ve had tons of practice with my parents on and off the highway. My parents are trying really hard to continue to give me the freedom to go where I please when I please, and they’ve been giving me that for most of my life and I am totally appreciative. But you know how parents are.
