In 2015, my friends and I planned a Dubai Christmas vacation to go watch the New Year's Eve fireworks. It was a holiday that we'd laugh about today over a cup of tea; our sour experience. Dubai is beautiful and very organized. But as Nigerians, our hotel tour guide warned us to stay back and watch the fireworks on the TV. We did not listen. First, it was like the world was in Dubai, it was extremely busy, chaotic, you'd get lost in the crowd. Sooner, after we crossed the Address Downtown Hotel building, we saw people running. I mean, picture the world running during a zombie attack. There was screaming, crying, holding hands, and those who quickly brought out their mobile devices to capture the moment. It was a mess. I was struck by the immediate response of their fire department compare to ours in Nigeria. And, there was a prominent ruler's son, Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed al-Maktoum pictured in uniform with the firefighters trying to save the day. Who wouldn't feel safe? This is the first time I am sharing these rare images of the gutted Address Tower from the point of a freaked-out tourist. #traveldiaries  #travels  #dubai  #photography  #documentaryphotography  #travelphotography  #news  #tourists  #beauty  #islam  #canon  #religion  #newyeareve  #wanderlust  #tribe  #travellers  #adventure  #2015  #everydayafrica  #worldpressphoto  #cnnafrica  #bbcafrica  #aljazeera  #pulsenigeria  #ventureafrica  #photojournalist  #journalist 

I have no idea what was up with the lighting in the toilets at Pacha that night, 🤔 But I still like this pic because of the people that are in it..... even if we do look a bit morphed!! 😫😫😫 #tbt  #pacha  #2015  💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽 #noblondesallowed 

Ight so let's talk about Vince Staples. This man right here is literally on of the most interesting rappers I have ever had the pleasure of listening to, and it's not because his life is lavish or his raps are about all the things we ''broke people'' wish about. No this man is interesting for one reason and one reason only, HE CAN ACTUALLY RAP. Now Vince is a fairly new artist in the game and has only been out about 3 or so years. So he did technically come in the era of rappers who don't really rap. And that's important to note as well. Because today today see a lot of rappers like Lil Uzi Vert and Trippie Red who are people who we have heard rap before, but then when you listen to their music today they do literally the exact opposite.........but why tho. Vince on the other hand came out rapping and he continued rapping and never looked back. He could have easily taken the route his peers had taken and chose not to rap, hell he could have taken note of the drill seen and apply it to his California style and maybe reinvent it in a sort of way to fit his city roots. But he didn't....but why is that? To be honest I don't know why he did this. He has more than enough potential to go down that lain because he has songs that kinda of give me either that ''mumbling'' vibe or the hard soulless vibe that is often present in drill music. But with all that being said he still raps and does it's very well. Me personally, I have listen to his entire discography and I gotta say he doesn't have one bad project yet. Granted his last project ''Big Fish Theory'' is a little overrated by the rap community, it is for good reason. Vince is a great artist and has the potential to run the rap game some day but he has to stay focused and keep his head in the right place. Don't sell out the what the media is telling you to do, change with the times is you want to or stay the same way throughout your career but just make sure you are making quality music either way and also put your heart in it. #vincestaples  #rap  #hiphop  #music  #potential  #skills  #rapmonster  #raplegend  #rapculture  #musicculture  #bigfishtheory  #primadonna  #hellcanwait  #rapislife  #thebest  #2017  #2016  #2015  #culture
