[THE MASH-UP] WALE/SZA – THE WEEKEND REMIX [NEW MUSIC]

The sultry peanut-butter smooth beat of SZA’s side chick anthem The Weekend is so red-hot it can melt the ice of the recent snow storm. I’m not surprised that every singer/rapper/neighborhood scatter has uploaded their version of the tune on the internet. But Wale’s spoken word drenched rendition might be the best one of them all. Check […]

LIL MUSIC REVIEW: EMINEM FEAT. BEYONCE – WALK ON WATER

Am I the only person that wasn’t exactly looking forward to Eminem’s comeback? I knew that it was coming since I witnessed Eminem’s public slaughter of President Trump during the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards. I’ve never been the biggest Eminem fan, but I can truly respect the longevity of his career and the mastery […]

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DRAKE feat. a lit drizzy playlist

What’s up beautiful people? I hope y’all are having a wonderful Tuesday. I just wanted to drop in and wish a Happy 31st Birthday to Drake a.k.a Drizzy a.k.a Aubrey Graham a.k.a. Champagne Papi a.k.a Wheelchair Jimmy a.k.a October’s Very Own. In honor of his 31st birthday, I’ve compiled a Spotify playlist of my 31 […]

3 THINGS I’VE LEARNED ABOUT SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING FROM BEYONCE’S INSTAGRAM

In the business of social media marketing, there are few accounts that really inspire me to create. But, the living legend presently known as Beyoncé is IT, honey. Over the past couple months, Beyoncé’s been posting almost exclusively on Instagram and that has a lot to do with the potential of Instagram’s layout and the opportunity to […]

LIL MUSIC REVIEW: SO FAR GONE – DRAKE #TBT

If Comeback Season is what separated Aubrey Graham from Jimmy Brooks, So Far Gone is what separated Drake from Aubrey Graham. I have a bad gauge of talent. I remember back in 2007 when I was making it a routine to sneak-watch episodes of Degrassi: The Next Generation over at my friend’s house. Specifically, I […]

#TBT why i’m in love with neo-soul ft. musiq soulchild, erykah badu

Neo-Soul is like butter. I have an affinity for music that’s smooth like that. It’s the type that has you unknowingly swaying to the beat. Any music that makes you sway is pure to the core; it knows the art of finesse. It makes the marriage of ethereal vocals with raw instrumentation that’s so unbelievably […]

#TBT – IS B2K COMING BACK???????????

On the teaser for next week’s Love and Hip Hop Hollywood episode Fizz alluded to the fact that it may be time for B2K to come back (Reunion tour, maybe??). J BOOG HIMSELF is even going to make an appearance so they can chat about it. Which got me thinking: Black boy bands from the […]

LIL MUSIC REVIEW: SYD – ALWAYS NEVER HOME

Singer-songwriter, DJ, The Internet front-woman, and super dope individual Syd just dropped a new three song EP “Always Never Home”. It was only last year she dropped her first solo album, so I was majorly surprised when she announced the EP. I was slightly saddened by the fact that it’s only three songs. But, it’s […]

HAPPY BEYONCE DAY (oh, yeah, and Labor Day too I guess)

Happy Birthday to one of (if not the) realest to ever do it. From Girl’s Tyme to Formation she dominated every step of the way and is a living legend. (Yeah, I said it. It’s true.) If she wasn’t a legend, how could she get all of these iconic women to recreate her Formation outfit (including the […]

lil music review; DANIEL CAESAR – FREUDIAN

I pride myself on being ahead of the wave. But, on my always entertaining Twitter feed, I kept seeing people praising Toronto singer Daniel Caesar‘s new album Freudian. First off, I had no idea who this guy Daniel Caesar even was…much less what the word Freudian even meant. So, before I actually listened to the album […]
