SAY WHATTT? ‘Whites Only’ Class Reunion Party in St. Martinville, Louisiana – in 2012

Saturday, September 1st, 2012

Reprinted from Lafayette, Louisiana popular rag, “The Ind”, a popular publication that helps to shed light on a whole lot of incidents that make you, “Say Whattt?”:

Hallelujah and pass the equality, the St. Martinville Senior High School class of 1973 is finally almost integrated.

The seventy-three-ers will mark their 40th homecoming in September with their customary slate of reunion events. However, as the flyer for the shindig indicates, they’ll break with custom and engage in at least some integrated merrymaking. But the after-game get-together on Friday, Sept. 21? Well, that’s for “White Graduates Only.”

Coincidentally, the class of 1973 was the first to be integrated at SMSH. It takes these things a while to stick.

The black alumni will no doubt discuss and perhaps debate this at their segregated water cooler.

(HEAT EXCLUSIVE) BLACK BOY: Heart & mind of a true hustler

Sunday, April 1st, 2012

The heart and mind of a successful businessman and true music artist pump the same thing – HUSTLE.

HUSTLE is a trait that Black Boy carries with him in everything he does. Whether it is with KUNTRII KINGZ CLOTHING CO., a company he co-owns, or whether it is in his music, Black Boy hustles and grinds all day and night long.

He’s a natural born hustler, knowing how to work his magic to get things done and he’s not afraid to promote his art, as well as that of those in his circle.

Making his way all over the South, Black Boy is proving that promotion and networking are the real keys to success.

The Heat is intrigued and we had to find out what makes this artist turned businessman tick. Here’s what he had to say:

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Tell us about yourself.

BLACK BOY: I was born and raised in Lafayette, Louisiana. I was raised by my mother. My stepdad was on drugs really bad. I used to see him shoot up. I didn’t have much of a childhood, but it prepared me for the streets. I don’t fear nothing but God.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: We hear that you’ve traveled all over. Tell us about that.

BLACK BOY: I’ve lived in Lafayette, Louisiana, Orange, Texas, New Orleans, Louisiana, Shreveport, Louisiana, Houston, Texas, Mobile, Alabama, and now, Atlanta, Georgia.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What are your musical influences?

BLACK BOY: I have a southern style of Hip Hop/Rap. I grew up listening to the Geto Boys, Too Short, Big Daddy Kane, NWA, Master P, 2Pac, Wu Tang, Juvenile, Luke & the 2 Live Crew, Bone Thugs & Harmony, and Soulja Slim. I learned the streets from my big brother and cousins, but I always knew I’d be someone important.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What performances do you have under your belt?

BLACK BOY: I’ve performed with Jojo Da Platinum Piece, Billy Book, Gemini, My Big Fam Click, Choppa Style, Fifth Ward Webbie, Cupid, Lil Boosie, Hurricane Chris, Mouse On Da Track, V.I., Juvenile, Big Boom & 2 Throwed, Talib Kweli, Baby Boy, Bunny B, Young, Tat Tomas, Red Boy, Z-Ro, Paul Wall, Bun B, and others. I’ve been rapping forever, but 1996 was my first time going into a studio. I started investing in concerts and promoting them. I’ve performed to make money, but for me, it’s not the money – it’s the love and passion of the music. I love it. I was supposed to Soulja Slim before he passed on. We will miss him.


THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What projects are currently in the works for you?

BLACK BOY: I’m just grinding – working on my new mixtape and doing a lot of singles. I have a hot single in the streets right now entitled, “Big Boy Sh*t” featuring 2 Throwed. I also have a hot line of shades coming out with my business partner, Brandon Johnson, through our company, KUNTRII KINGZ. I’m trying to work with everybody who wants to work. You can find my music on Rhapsody, iTunes, You Tube, and in several years, on top of the Billboard Charts – me or my artists I put out.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Make sure to check out Black Boy & to keep a close watch on him. He’s making epic moves with his music & with KUNTRII KINGZ CLOTHING CO. Follow him on Twitter – @ttblackb.
