Zimbabwe is home to one of the most stunning historical monuments in Africa – the monument of the Great Zimbabwe. Built 900 years ago, the massive stone structures of the Great Zimbabwe create a breathtaking view, leaving visitors to wonder about the historical events that transpired many centuries ago. How were these massive stone structures built? What kind of society lived here? Why was such an impressive and durable structure ultimately abandoned?
The name ‘Zimbabwe’ is an anglicized form of an African word meaning ‘stone houses’, for the ruins of the Great Zimbabwe are comprised of several stone walls, monuments, and buildings built mainly of granite. The structures were created using a method called dry stonewalling, which requires a high level of masonry expertise. The internal structure contains many passageways and enclosures. It spans almost 1800 acres of the southeastern area of the country of Zimbabwe. While it may seem that the structure was named after the country, it is actually the other way around.
Childish Gambino - Telegraph Ave (“Oakland” By Lloyd)
Stunning visuals for the track which features on Gambino’s ‘Because The Internet’ album. Shot in Kauai (Hawaii) alongside the beautiful Jhene Aiko, with an unexpected twist in the ending. Refreshing video to say the least.
I AM DYING

Chicago rapper Kembe X drops a dope visual and song from his newly released EP ‘Kembe X’. The banging beat and a verse from T.D.E.’s own Ab-Soul as well as Alex Wiley’s vocals on the hook, really help bring the song to life.
