TLC: Still No Introduction Needed

It’s been a long time coming. Yep. When it comes to TLC, that’s definitely an understatement. The sexy (Chilli) and cool (T-Boz) members of TLC have pushed forward as a duo since the loss of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. Despite several tours, a juicy biopic and sporadic single releases, TLC is the first studio album […]

Welcome To Big Boi’s Boomiverse

A piece of Outkast is better than none at all. We thought a new album was coming after Big Boi and Andre 3000’s 2014 Coachella show. Andre 3000 offered a stellar verse on Erykah Badu’s “Hello”, lifted from her But You Can’t Use My Phone mixtape. However, we should thank Big Boi for all those […]

A Deep ‘Prodigy’ Gone Too Soon

Albert Johnson, a.k.a Prodigy, was one half of the influential New York rap duo, Mobb Deep. Kejuan Muchita, a.k.a. Havoc, completed the duo. Sadly, Hip Hop has lost another great talent. Prodigy passed away today, at the young age of 42. He was born with the sickle cell disease. Complications from a sickle cell crisis, […]

Lorde Shares Her Melodrama

Lorde has always been wise beyond her years. After all, she was still a teenager when she warned us about the pitfalls of materialism on her breakout hit, “Royals”. Now she’s back with new album, Melodrama. This new collection of music details the after effects of Summer love after it has dissipated. Lorde is angry and […]

Ruff Sounds, Hot Diamonds (Justin Ruff Interview)

I was first introduced to Justin Ruff’s music a couple years ago when I heard his debut EP, The Ruff Draft. Ruff Draft still gets regular rotation. He’s a Cincinnati native, who now resides in Chicago. Now, he has just released his brand new single, “Diamonds (Nothing On You)”. Justin weaves in and out of this R&B […]

Goapele: The Secretive Dreamseeker

Goapele caught my attention back in 2001 with her hit single, “Closer”. I heard one of my friends playing the song and had to know who this mystery woman was. I have been a fan of her music ever since. Although 2014’s Strong As Glass sounded a bit more contrived than 2011’s Break Of Dawn, […]

Snoop Dogg: Rap’s Pioneer Neva Left

When Snoop Dogg’s 1993 groundbreaking debut, Doggystyle, dropped, Kendrick Lamar and Drake were 6 years old. Many artists have come and gone in Snoop’s 25 year career run. However, he has remained relevant and picked up steam along the way. He is one of the pioneers who put the West Coast on the map and made […]

UK Band Everywhere Tells Us To ‘Man Up’

I initially became acquainted with Everywhere’s music in December of 2016 (The New Fiction Act Is ‘Everywhere’). Their fresh sound and edgy vocals instantly drew me in. So, when I heard about their upcoming single, “Man Up”, I had to check it out. The group’s latest single also features Swedish singer/songwriter Rebecca Nohr. The group takes […]

What’s Wrong With Kissing Strangers?

I didn’t know who DNCE was, until a few months ago. Sure, I have heard several songs from their self titled debut album at the gym. “Toothbrush”, “Cake By The Ocean”, “Good Day”, and “Body Moves” all get frequent spins at LA Fitness. I must admit, I am a fan of the group after hearing […]
