We are in an era where anything can become public knowledge. Aspects of everyday lives are published on social media, things that could be incriminating or just something that the whole world doesn't need to know.

It's even gotten to a point where rappers like The Game, who has had his fair share of rap beefs, say young rappers should stop showing how much money they have via social media.


Since Lil Wayne's recent pardon from former President Donald Trump, he seems to be giving out much-needed advice to the younger generation in one of the most iconic ways you can.

Are Lil Wayne and Kodak Black among the list of high-profile rappers receiving a pardon from Trump?

In a tweet on Thursday, Lil Wayne referenced one of his own lyrics from "6 Foot 7 Foot" to shed light on this reality.

I believe the song, which is now a decade old, is still relevant through that particular bar.

We should always be mindful of the things we put out on the internet. For example, if people show thousands of dollars on their social media feeds, it could cause others to wish for their downfall.

Besides, we all know the cliché yet sensible phrase, "once it's on the internet, it'll always be on the internet."

With that in mind, we must always remember to think wisely.

How am I doing as a parent?

Evaluating yourself is hard. It's even harder when attempting to assess your parenting because there's no set guide and nothing to count, measure, or quantify.

How am I doing as a parent?

Some time ago, I met my lovely friend for a drink, straight off the train from London. She told me about a very intense performance review she had at work recently, which, although scary, was incredibly useful; it gave her a general sense of how she was doing and areas to work on.

And it struck me we don't get this feedback as parents. Am I doing a good job? I have no idea.
