Awon & Phoniks: Knowledge of Self

Unsure of what to expect, I was surprisingly transported to the 90’s upon pressing play on Awon & Phoniks new record, “Knowledge of Self.” The “Golden Era vandals” infiltrate the feel-good production with lyrics that satisfy any (and every) Old School Hip Hop head who yearn for substance. The Hip Hop duo released their debut […]

Darius Heywood: “No Money (Loosie)” – #ForTheLove

Such is the case with Darius Heywood’s new single, “No Money (Loosie).” I first got acquainted with Darius via Twitter. I mean, it IS one of the biggest […]

Lili K: “G.L.A.D.” Ft. Sidewalk Chalk

To think that Hip Hop has no relevancy to other genres of music is simply ludicrous. Jazz, Soul, even Rock-n-Roll have shed some influence on Hip Hop music. So for artists of other genres to incorporate Hip Hop into their music – or vice versa – should be appreciated. I recently received a submission in […]

Good music will always resonate good vibes – for me, at least. Houston native, Harvvv, unleashes a feel-good record featuring the sultry vocals of Sherelyn. Being the old […]

Eminem Pays Tribute To Tupac In An Open Letter

If you ask me which rappers are in my “Top 5” and you’ve known me for quite some time now, then you know Eminem and Tupac are on the list. In no particular order – because I believe you can’t put an order on greatness, period – Eminem and Tupac are two of the greatest […]

Erykah Badu: Hotline Bling (Re)Mix

What else could be better than Erykah Badu recording her own version of Drake’s “Hotline Bling?” Nothing. Because it’s Badu, and she’s just a remarkably talented singer. So talented that her mix of the single sounds as though it was never Drake’s to begin with. (no offense Drizzy) And to top it off, Ms. Baadu […]
