The Scar Speaks Volumes

Last week I had a great conversation with a friend I haven’t seen in a while. We caught up about everything from work, to personal life and business endeavors we are working on. This friend is one of those people who is great to surround yourself with. Great energy attracts more great energy. Some of […]

Big Boi Rules The Boomiverse

OutKast (Antwan “Big Boi” Patton and Andre “Andre 3000” Benjamin) reunited at Coachella 2014. Many of today’s current generation remembers “Ms. Jackson”, “B.O.B.” and “The Way You Move”. Although those are some of the duo’s biggest hits, they have been around for over 20 years now. Their last studio album was the commercial juggernaut (and […]

Daley & Jill Scott Take The Pain Away

  Daley is like that secret weapon that comes out of nowhere to create mass destruction. Although it’s only been 6 years since his debut EP, his voice has the maturity of a seasoned veteran. His debut album, Days + Nights, still gets heavy rotation on my iPod. He previewed his current single “Until The Pain […]

Kendrick Lamar Gets Spiritual On ‘Damn’

Kendrick Lamar’s build up to Damn has been a short lived, yet intense ride. First, there was the release of “The Heart Part 4”, a track that is not found on his new release. Then he dropped the juggernaut that is “Humble” the following week. The beat alone on that song is so infectious that […]

Remember To Drink Your Noon Greens

Green health drinks often scare people away. True, they are not the most appealing types of drink to look at. However, I would not steer you all wrong when it comes to the taste department. I love finding healthy new drinks. I am no different than the next person who still wants a great taste […]

Lion Babe Roars On Stellar Debut

Remember when producer/singer duo Groove Theory (comprised of singer, Amel Larrieux and producer, Bryce Wilson) ruled the charts for the summer of 1995? “Tell Me” was the perfect, steamy butterfly love ballad. Fast forward 20 plus years and you have Lion Babe. The duo consists of vocalist Jillian Hervey (daughter of former Miss America, Vanessa […]

The Last Time I Saw You

I had lunch yesterday with some great friends I haven’t seen in a while. They were both doing well and looked happy. I always enjoy seeing great people being prosperous, because I feel like they deserve it that much more. As we caught up on each other’s lives and work, the topic came up about […]

Leela James Did It For Love

Leela James has one of the smoothest, most sincere voices of our generation. Her music strikes with such a conviction that places the listener right in the center of her situation. She continues that formula on her latest release, Did It For Love. Her new album is quite refreshing in a time where substance is […]

Jaysyd Keeps It Lit On ‘Thanks For Nothing’

  “Strike while the iron is hot”. This old saying is extremely appropriate in today’s music industry. Jaysyd has a strong grasp on this concept. His last EP, HER, hasn’t even been out for a year yet. He already has new music to offer. Jaysyd’s new mixtape, Thanks For Nothing, picks up where HER left off. However, […]
