Bilal On J. Dilla's Influence, Independent Women, And The Best Kind Of Sex [Pg.2]

Another thing I remember from your advice columns is that you constantly implicated that males are likely to cheat. Tyrese even said “it’s expected for men to cheat”. Do you think men are more prone to cheating? And in your opinion, do you think a woman should tolerate it if it’s only physical versus emotional?

I don’t know; that’s according to the persons and their relationship. I think that the way society is set up nowadays, yeah, men do cheat; even women cheat. I think the lines are very hard to see nowadays in relationships. Relationships are kind of taking on a different kind of meaning nowadays. It’s not as cut and dry as it was in my mother’s time.

A lot that has also changed is female independence, which has been promoted by female role models like Beyonce. Her comeback now is about to continue this female empowerment movement. How do you feel about having a self-made woman?

I think it’s sexy. I like a woman that knows what she wants and isn’t waiting for someone to get it for her. [Someone] that is aggressive with her ideas and her drive, that’s what I like. No one likes a needy person, or a person that just feeds off of your energy. It’s good to have someone whose energy you can feed off too.

Would it ever bother you if she was more successful than you?

Oh hell yeah! F*ck yeah! [Laughs] Nah, I don’t know. I don’t think so. I’ve always been the kind of person that doesn’t need much anyways. I don’t think someone having more than me would really affect me. I really don’t need much with how my lifestyle is anyways

A lot of women are gaining success and money from these reality shows like Basketball wives, Hip Hop Wives, Mob Wives, where they use their past (or current) relationships to make a name for themselves and be “independent”. How do you feel about this?

Man, I don’t know. I don’t really dig that too much. But I guess they can say they are somewhat.  I mean, reality TV is big money now.

How would you react to one of your exes being on one?

My kind of person wouldn’t even want to be on a reality TV show. But if that were to happen, I don’t know. It’d just be comedy. [Laughs]

Would we find out some good secrets about you?

Aw yeah. [Laughs] You might. I don’t know what a person would take from their experience of being with me and putting it on TV. I don’t know what they’d share. [Laughs]

Now you’ve made some sexy music before… What is your definition of the best kind of sex?

Hmm. That’s easy. Best kind of sex is if you both climax at the same time! That’s the best kind of sex.

What kinda music would you put on to set the mood?

I don’t really even do that anymore. I like natural sounds.

Are you currently working on more music?

Yeah, I’m always writing music. Always.

When can we expect more music soon?

I don’t know; whenever I’m finished. I don’t think it’s going to take that long for me to do a record. It usually only takes me two to three years to make a record. It’s been so long for me to come out with Airtight’s Revenge because I was going through a lot of behind the scenes shit. As far as creativity and making the music, it doesn’t really take that long.

Stockton Launches Basic Income Program Gifting Residents With $500 A Month

Stockton, California has launched its basic income plan gifting dozens of residents with $500 a month, the Huffington Post reports.

Last year, Stockton Mayor Michael Tubbs responded to criticism over the program which was designed to help close the poverty gap as residents struggle to stay afloat amid California's skyrocketing rent prices and increase in homelessness.

The basic income plan -- the first of its kind to be launched by a U.S. city -- was announced by Tubbs and the Stockton Economic Empowerment Demonstration (SEED) in 2017. Under the program, 130 residents will receive a monthly stipend via prepaid debit cards for the next 18 months.

Exciting! Congrats to the team, the city, and to the recipients. We’ve learned so much getting to this point and I am looking forward to learning more. Stockton lead the way @stocktondemo #ReinventStockton

— Michael Tubbs (@MichaelDTubbs) February 15, 2019

Stockton's median household income is just under $50,000 a year. Residents are chosen through an “algorithm” to make sure that the selection is representative of the community’s diversity.

The money is funded by a grant from the Economic Security Project, in addition to other funds raised, Tubbs said.

“There’s no restriction on how people can use the money,” he pointed out. “If people use it for drugs and alcohol that’s there prerogative. [But] if I didn’t believe in the capacity of the folks who elected me to make good decisions, I probably shouldn’t be mayor.”

Alabama Newspaper Editor Calls On KKK To Lynch Democrats In Washington D.C.

The editor of a failing Alabama newspaper made news after he penned an editorial pleading for the KKK to “night ride again.” Goodloe Sutton, editor and publisher of the Democrat-Reporter, a small weekly paper in Linden, Ala., doubled down on his racism in an interview Monday (Feb. 18).

"If we could get the Klan to go up there and clean out D.C., we'd all been better off," he told the Montgomery Advertiser. "We'll get the hemp ropes out, loop them over a tall limb and hang all of them.”

Sutton added that he’s not asking for “Americans”  to be lynched. “These are socialist-communists we’re talking about.” He also compared the KKK to the NAACP. “They didn’t kill but a few people. The Klan wasn’t violent until they need to be.”

In his editorial, Sutton lashed out against Democrats in the Republican party for “plotting to raise taxes in Alabama.”

“They do not understand how to eliminate expenses when money is needed in other areas,” he wrote. “The socialist-communist ideology sounds good to the ignorant, the uneducated, and the simple-minded people.”

Later in the piece Sutton put a bird call out to the KKK. “If you haven’t noticed, they did away with the draft so their sons would not have to go into battle. Seems like the Klan would be welcome to raid the gated communities up there.

Sutton’s editorial is obviously catching backlash and calls for his resignation. The Alabama Press Association’s Board of Director’s condemned Sutton and suspended the newspaper’s membership. Auburn University’s Journalism Advisory Council voted to revoke his award in community journalism and the University of Southern Mississippi took him off their Journalism Hall of Fame.

Sutton's paper is doing so badly that he was forced to move the publication to an old barbecue restaurant. This new round of publicity could officially put the paper out of its misery.
