DAMN.: Kendrick’s Blessing & Curse

Thursday, 11 May 2017 by
For the last few years Kendrick Lamar has been tantalizing on wax and on stage. His rapping ability, stage presence and musical content have consistently elevated and sparked conversations as to how good he is now and how good he can be.

Avengers, assemble! I’m pretty sure that’s somewhere included in the emails, texts, or calls Khaled makes when he’s working on new music. With Asahd executively producing his first album, the second single seems like an all-star squad like no other. “I’m the One” features Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance The Rapper and Lil Wayne. As most

“New Chick” – Tazz Majer

Monday, 01 May 2017 by
As much rap/hip-hop as I listen to many wouldn’t know that I’m really an R&B guy at heart. So, with that in mind, I’m always looking for budding singers.

You know who’s dope as hell? Noname! Formerly known as Noname Gypsy, the young woman has been a one of the most consistent and exciting collaborators of Chance the Rapper.

Both of those happened. Doeman is passionate and intense and on this J. Cardenas-produced track, you

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from EAZ but the silence stops today. We ran across a tweet earlier today signaling new music from the rapper coming at 7pm and instantly tried to get our hands on the music. Well, the newest release is here and it’s time to have more EAZ than you’ve
By now, we hope that you’re very familiar with Free Minds lead-man, Steve Cantrell. If not, now would be the perfect time to catch the wave. As Cantrell undergoes a restructuring of musical focus and branding, he felt that it was “very important” to show fans and new listeners alike, where he’s trying to go. Although
