Two fine ass black men on a mission to up hold the ideals of fierceness and hotness from the streets of Jacksonville to the cities of the world. And if you are fierce you will be celebrated as you deserved, but beware if you look, act, smell, or sound like a hot mess, you will be ASSASSINATED!(Verbally, not fo realz!)

Kwanzaa Roots: Kujichagulia (Self-Determination)!

To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves and speak for ourselves. To carry the spirit of Self-Determination, find five things that make you unique.
Self determination is something that one feels when knowing that against all odds, he/she can still RISE
Even when enemies taunt, poke fun, and chastise
When adversaries talk, and perhaps question one’s beliefs
Stirring up laughter and yet causing one grief
Self determination is being strong while being pounced on like an
Elephant on an ant
Knowing that you can do all things that others really can’t
After all, who cares what others think—whether they be friend or
Self-determination above all means saying ‘YES’ to you when others are shouting ‘NO’
