Who Rocks the Mic?

Marvin Gregg   It seems like the hot topic old school vs. New school Hip Hop has come back to the surface. For the past couple of months various old school hip-hop artists have given their intake on the new artist of hip-hop both negative and positive. However one comment stuck with everyone for a while and even created what I guess you can say a “genre”; Mumble Rap. Mumble rap is when a rapper makes music with lyrics very difficult to understand. Others like to call mumble rap when rappers mumble incoherent absolute garbage for an entire song. Whatever they like to call it our generation seems to love it. Artist that fit into that category are Young Thug, Lil Uzi Vert, Playboi Carti, Young Dolph and the list continues. Debates like this always seem to emerge onto the surf...

Constructing a Dream

Marvin Gregg An Organization that was birthed from nothing but a dream… Reconstruction is a step team as well as one of the newest additions to our student life here on campus. This is an organization led by students where males and females can come together on a collegiate level through step. Reconstruction not only encourages an outlet of expression, comfort and creativity but also fosters a positive and uplifting environment for the team and the Lincoln University community. Typically on a HBCU campus you would only see the members of Greek organizations stepping.  Having said that, one of the purposes for Reconstruction is to give the opportunity for students who are not apart of any Greek organization an opportunity to do something that they have grown to love. It is furtherm...

Change Starts Now

Marvin Gregg They always say,  “Be the change that you wish to see in the world”.       The coordinator of Student life and Development Tiffani Brown has a plan that seeks exactly what that quote means.  She’s a Virginia native and a North Carolina University and Florida International University Alumna.  Ms. Tiffani was pretty involved throughout her undergrad experience.

THAT’S TWO IN A ROW

By: Michael Howard Last night The Lincoln University Lions rallied together to bring home their second straight win on their home court with a score of 89-79. The Lions were led by freshman forwards Deaquan Williams and Jordan Camper, both who recorded double-doubles helping the Lions to a win. The two were amongst five Lion players who scored double figures for the team. Overall, they exhibited a team effort in last night’s win shooting 43% from the field even though they were out rebounded by Clarion.  Alongside Williams and Camper, guards Sean James and Gevon Arrington added a double figure scoring for the team. The Lions shot 67% from the free-throw line while Clarion only shot 51%. This is where the clear divide in ability was shown. With several of the Lion’s players scoring in do...
