All Miguel Wants Is You

Miguel is a fresh breath of air to today’s R&B. He is not one to disappoint, if you are a true fan of R&B.

For Artist’s SAKE!

What is art? I’ve been asked this question thousands of times from the start of my high school career (at a performing & visual arts school) throughout the time I’ve spent thus-far in a liberal arts college. For me, I think of art in terms of musicians. What is it that you’re creating? Why? What … Continue reading

More About Nothing

I love Wale. I’m not just saying this because I’m from the DMV (D.C./Maryland/Virginia) area. I love his lyrics, I love his hustle, I love his grind, I love the fact that he uses Go-Go music in his beats, I love how he meshes poetry and rap together again (he reminds me a lil bit of … Continue reading

Cashtro’s Crosbyfication

This past April, Cashtro finally dropped his mixtape, “Crosbyfication.”  Due to the single tracks I’ve heard from him, I was curious as to how effective his style would transpire over a complete project.  As an artist who openly reps Pittsburg, PA and Ottawa, Canada, it was no surprise that these settings came into conversation throughout … Continue reading

With support from both of their fan bases, they’ve definitely delivered with not only good material but also eye-candy… Their first viral-single off the … Continue reading

XXL FRESHMEN EVENT : HIGHLINE BALLROOM

Featuring the likes of my new favorites… Freddie Gibbs, Big Sean, Pill, and Nipsey Hussle.  Also, a few I wasn’t so hip to: Jay Rock (who I find to be dope), and Donnis (who I kind of grew an inch of a liking… may be too commerical for my taste, to be honest.)  Special guests … Continue reading

Loso’s Way {{{REVIEW}}}

More than likely, it’s mostly due to my taste in artists, but these past few albums I’ve reviewed have all contributed to hip hop what is lacking on the radio, television, and media revenues throughout the U.S.  Fabolous’ new album “Loso’s Way” is more than drugs and glory.. it’s love lost, love forgotten, money, cars, clothes, … Continue reading

Twista Damages the Rap Scene [REVIEW]

    The infamous Chi-Town tongue-twisting artist Twista has just released his seventh solo album “Category F5.”  The intro to the album with the first track “Misunderstood” featuring Buk describes the F-Scale of tornadoes and twisters from F1 to F5.  F5, being the most destructive, is a perfect metaphor for the impact that Twista’s quick-multi-syllabic rhythmical … Continue reading

Maxwell and his BLACKsummers’night [REVIEW]

“I Can’t Control The Feeling…”   The most beautiful intro to an album: Maxwell and his angelic adlibs… “Bad Habits” is a mellow song that takes you to another world, and is the perfect entrance into the mind of Maxwell.  It lifts from slow to mid-tempo, forcing a reason to dance, with the ever-so-present sound … Continue reading
