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 […]

MUSIC I’M VIBING TO; J Cole – Want You To Fly

Cole is one of those artists that polarizes hip hop fans. You either adore him, or you think he’s some fake deep corn ball. Trust, I’ve met a lot of fake deep cornballs and Jermaine Cole is certainly not that. I don’t understand the hate that’s been collecting towards him and his fans over the […]

#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 […]

relationships and the beauty of authenticity feat. 21 savage & amber rose

There’s something rather exquisite about Atlanta rapper 21 Savage. Maybe it’s the upside down cross in the middle of his forehead. Maybe it’s how he’s cashed in on his universal meme status. But, I think what’s grabbed my attention the most is his overflowing authenticity. Hip-hop is full of rappers that spit fallacies instead of facts. […]

the soundtrack to your lazy day #niarecommends

Happy Sunday everybody. I hope y’all are doing swell. 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?? […]

KENDRICK LAMAR – element *new video*

Kendrick Lamar (a.k.a Kung-Fu-Kenny) is back at it giving you another cinematic from his last smash album DAMN. Take a look at it and tell me what you think in the comments section below.


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 […]

*new music* CREW REMIX – Goldlink feat. Gucci Mane, Shy Glizzy, & Brent Faiyaz

Everything is better when you slap a Gucci verse on it. It’s scientific fact. I wouldn’t have thought you can make this bop even wavier, but you gotta give it up to the one and only Gucci. Check out the official Crew remix up above.
