I'm in a Toxic Relationship with the SNKRS App

We love things that hurt us.

Imagine it's 9:59 AM on a Thursday. You've been up since 8:00 AM to purchase the Air Jordan 4 "Sail" on the SNKRS App.

You've made sure that your phone is at 100% and that your service is flawless while making sure your screen doesn't time out.

It's now 10:00 AM. The icon next to the hopefully soon-to-be-yours sneakers indicates they are now available for purchase.

8 Forgotten R&B Groups

As the popularity of R&B faded, these groups were lost to history.

During the '90s and 2000s, R&B groups were among of the most popular and profitable acts in music.

Iconic groups like Boyz II Men, Jodeci, and TLC reshaped the landscape of Black music. Their powerful vocal arrangements, distinct personalities, and chart-topping singles not only earned them millions of fans across the globe but respect and recognition from their peers, as well.

WCW

On March 26, 2001, World Championship Wrestling went out of business.

The Atlanta-based promotion, acquired by media mogul Ted Turner from the Crockett family in 1988, reignited mainstream America's interest in professional wrestling throughout the '90s. WCW gained its popularity by signing former high-profile WWE talents like Hulk Hogan and Macho Man Randy Savage. But it became the leader in professional wrestling with the creation of its Monday night WWE alternative WCW Monday Nitro, which aired at the same time as WWE's Monday Night Raw.

I became a fan of Joe Budden's music in high school.

His introspective yet brooding temperament was relatable to a teenager experiencing peak angst who sought refuge in Hip-Hop. Joe's lyricism and transparency resonated with me as an adult as well. His accounts of his bouts of depression and using various vices to cope with them became the soundtrack to my life. The one quality I admired the most about the New Jersey emcee, beyond his wordplay, was his willingness to be the industry's biggest villain.

Recently, when his friends and co-hosts were conspicuously absent from the latest episode of The Joe Budden Podcast, rumors of scandal and discord started to spread. In reality, Joe's co-workers and friends having grievances with his behavior continues a longstanding pattern.
