#TBTJam BRITNEY SPEARS – toxic

90s and early 2000s pop will always have a place in my heart. It’s small, oddly shaped, and squished in right next to Flavor of Love re-runs and Creamy Chicken Instant Ramen. But it’s there y’all. Toxic is one of my faves from this glorious era of bubblegum pop. I remember it being stuck in […]

innanetape, freshman year, & my music collection feat. vic mensa’s the autobiography

Chicago rapper Vic Mensa played a substantial part in the growth of my music taste…whatever that may be. Mensa’s 2013 debut solo mixtape Innanetape was one of the first tapes that I downloaded off of the uber popular free mixtape site DatPiff. This tape built the infrastructure of my now hefty music collection. There’s something […]

#fbf CRUSH ON YOU – lil kim feat. lil cease

On the car ride back from my out of state trip, I was on a heavy female hip hop streak. I started with Cardi B’s Bodak Yellow  (a surprisingly catchy bop) and faded my way through some of my favorites from the sub-genre (Missy Elliot, Nicki Minaj (sometimes), and Lauryn Hill). But, my absolute favorite is […]

Don’t y’all have those days where all you desire to do is lounge around in your pajamas and scroll through Netflix for your next binge-watch extravaganza? Today is that type of day for me. But, I tend to give my lazy days a soundtrack. What type […]

issa trend – BAND TEES

Music merchandise has been a bit of a hot button topic lately, due to a couple Kardashians that got chewed out by the late rapper Biggie’s mom for using his image without their permission.  If you want to peep some of the horrid t-shirt designs that they okay’d you can laugh at it right here and here. […]

*new music* TYLER, THE CREATOR – Who Dat Boy

Brand spankin’ new certified banger from rapper Tyler, The Creator. I am super duper flippin’ excited to see a new project from Tyler! It’s been a minute since his last project Cherry Bomb dropped in 2015, and it’s about time he dropped another smash. Is it going to be a collab album with A$AP Rocky?? […]

(#TBTJam) THE INTERNET – you don’t even know ft. tay walker

Every Thursday, I’m going to re-introduce you to a killer song from back in the day. Back in the day may mean ten years ago, two years ago, or two days ago. It just depends on what I want to put y’all on for today. Today’s #TBTJam is a song off of The Internet‘s 2013 album […]

ANALYZING 2017 XXL FRESHMAN (PLAYBOI CARTI & PNB ROCK)

My fave hip hop senseis are always stomping on the current state of hip-hop with their pristine Timberland boots. They love to talk about what’s “real” and what’s not. I always back my generation of hip-hop and say that even though some more popular hip hop isn’t too great there are many more young artists […]
