Review: Joey Fatts Breaks Through With ‘Ill Street Blues’

Review: Joey Fatts Breaks Through With ‘Ill Street Blues’

It seems incredible that Joey Fatts has only been crafting music for three short years. From being homeless to desperately making beats because no one would give him any, Joey is currently one-third of the Long Beach, California rap group Cutthroat (featuring A$hton Martin and cousin, Vince staples.) His impressive industry consigns have developed quickly. [...]

Review: Young Thug Gets It Brackin’ On Barter 6

Review: Young Thug Gets It Brackin’ On Barter 6

Young Thug has been one of the most controversial rappers to emerge in the last year, from his unique way of dressing, to his referral of his rap peers as “bae,” and his lyrics that are not necessarily explicitly heterosexual; his presence has certainly sparked some important dialogue about homophobia within the hip-hop community. Further, [...]

STAY WOKE: What To Listen To While You’re Waiting For Jai Paul Pt. 4: Acceptance

STAY WOKE: What To Listen To While You’re Waiting For Jai Paul Pt. 4: Acceptance

Typically there are 5 stages of grief or loss but I decided that we could skip a stage and head straight for acceptance. I’ve done 3 previous installments of the “What To Listen To While You’re Waiting For Jai Paul” series dating back to last summer and it’s taken me until now to accept that [...]

When Wale isn’t trying to be cool, The Album About Nothing soars

When Wale isn’t trying to be cool, The Album About Nothing soars

The Album About Nothing is an intimate Go-Go jam, where Wale finesses complicated lyricism infusing metaphors, his deepest secrets and the best music he’s ever made. A follow-up to the 2010 mixtape More About Nothing, the album employs the same thematic Jerry Seinfeld presence and wisdom. J. Cole, Sza, AG3, Jeremih and Usher make guest [...]

“Mr. Wonderful” is experimental, musical and unapologetically Action Bronson

“Mr. Wonderful” is experimental, musical and unapologetically Action Bronson

Action Bronson is the chubby, bearded Queens native, who never wears pants and puts on one of the most entertaining live shows I’ve ever seen. He might body slam you with the quickness in between mouth watering food references and humorous rhymes about how sexy your baby mama thinks he is. But he’s unapologetically Bronson [...]
