#StopTheMadness: Barack Obama Says The N-Word And The Media Goes Crazy

Written by Nigel D. / 06.23.15

Barack Obama used the “N-Word” while making a point during a podcast yesterday and the media went into a frenzy. To me it wasn’t a big deal but to some it was reprehensible. Someone appearing on Fox News called him the “Rapper-in-Chief.” The media was proving his point without even noticing. What Obama stated was, “Racism, we are not cured of it. And it’s not just a matter of it not being polite to say ni**er in public.” Clearly he is saying too much emphasis is put on the N-Word rather than the real issues. Racism is a lot deeper than derogatory terms and affects people in more detrimental manners. Do you agree the media is sensationalizing Obama’s comment?

Check some reactions from the media below.

Stop The Madness: A Man Got Savagely Attacked For His Lebron Sneakers

Written by Nigel D. / 06.03.15

This attack happened in broad daylight in front of a school. You can never let your guard down and carrying a lot of cash while on foot is not a good idea.

Stop The Madness: A.P.C. Named Part Of Their Latest Collection “Last N****s In Paris”

Written by Nigel D. / 01.28.15


“I call this one look Last N****s in Paris. Why? Because it’s the sweet spot when the hood—the ‘hood—meets Bertolucci’s movie Last Tango in Paris. So that’s ‘N****s in Paris’ and Last N****s in Paris.

Contacted by e-mail afterward, Touitou clarified his position, that sign, and that speech by saying: “One hip-hop song is called ‘N***** in Paris.’ One movie is called ‘Last Tango in Paris.’ I am friends with Kanye [West, who recorded “Ni**as in Paris” with Jay Z], and he and I presented a joint collection at the same place, one year ago, and that this thing is only a homage to our friendship. As a matter of fact, when I came up with this idea, I wrote to him, with the picture of the look and the name I was giving to it, and he wrote back immediately saying something like, ‘I love this vibe.'”
Full Story: Style

A.P.C. has worked with Kanye West in the past and is working with Timberland so I guess they feel they get a pass for such a bold move. This is very inappropriate, A.P.C. is a French brand and if you go to their website you won’t even see a black person on the front page. Throwing Kanye’s name in his excuse does not make any difference.


Yesterday we became aware of the offensive remarks made by Jean Touitou during his A.P.C. Fall Menswear show in Paris. We have chosen to immediately terminate our involvement with the A.P.C. brand, including the footwear collaboration we had planned for this fall.

Simply stated, this kind of language and approach is in complete contrast with our values. Timberland seeks to collaborate with designers and brands who are at the forefront of lifestyle trends; equally important, they must also share our values. We will not tolerate offensive language or racial slurs of any kind being associated with the Timberland brand.
– Timberland’s President Stewart Whitney

#StopTheMadness: A Rapper Faces Possible Life In Prison Over A Rap Album He Released

Written by Nigel D. / 11.17.14

It’s a showdown that is breaking legal ground — a local man with no criminal record facing a lifetime behind bars for cutting a rap album. Prosecutors are calling upon a state law put in place by voters in 2000 that has not been used until now. It allows for the prosecution of gang members if they benefit from crimes committed by other gang members. Though Duncan hasn’t been tied to the shootings, prosecutors argued that he benefited from the shootings because his gang gained in status, allowing him to sell more albums.

This is a big reach, with this logic a lot of rappers would be in jail right now. Can this law be applied to criminals who profit from books and movies too?

Stop The Madness: Keeping It G Real

Written by Nigel D. / 11.13.14

Looks like this kid has seen one too many rap videos. Seems like he is trying way too hard to come off as “G Real.” Kids like this don’t last too long in the streets.

#StopTheMadness: A 7-11 Employee’s Store Was Robbed While Freestyling For A Radio Show

Written by Nigel D. / 10.15.14

The good news is Will was okay. We spoke to him again an hour later, and while he was dealing with paperwork, he was fine. You listen long enough & you’ll hear everything. Will in Baltimore’s running the counter at 7-11 around 3:30a. And in the middle of his rap, his store gets robbed. This leads to us learning Mraz’s Subway once got robbed.

Thankfully the employee was not injured during the robbery.
